When the sun sets
On dark silhouettes
Collapse into dream

It's almost Christmas time, but today's post goes back to those sunny autumn days from about two months ago. I really miss those as now it's usually dark and gloomy, but in spite of that I'm really excited as today's the day I go home for Christmas! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself, there are many many good things to come my way during the next two weeks, which makes me too happy! As for the outfit – yes, it's one of those rare occasions I'm wearing trousers. I actually cannot get enough of these and I've recently been eyeing some lovely pairs from Simons' jeans collection. The dungarees combined with my favourite jumper? I can wear it all the time.

Dungarees – Primark

Sun structures

The freezing weather calls for more home time, but a couple of exciting events were happening in and around Brussels recently, hence I could hardly stay in. The end of November was definitely all about Temples concert in Antwerp. It was one of the most perfect gigs I've ever been to and their live sound is so incredible you could just lose yourself in the music and in the very moment, plus their music is another happy memory lane for me, which makes the experience even better. What's more, the magic of December has already started (even though my advent calendar indicates it's already mid-December), therefore another recent excitement of mine is surely Les Plaisirs d'hivier – which is like an around Christmas market, with all the carousels, a Ferris wheel, an ice rink, fairy lights everywhere, yummy food, mulled wine and hot chocolate – all in all the loveliest time of the year (maybe apart from the cold).
On an outfit note, I've come back to loving polka dots all over again, especially when I've seen this collared number on Sammy Dress website, I just couldn't resist.

And a couple of photos from the gig:

in the pines, babe, in the pines
forked tongue, white lies
black water, shaky hands

The colder weather has already hit Brussels, hence I've spent the recent weeks snuggled up in blankets with a cup of hot tea in hand, devouring books, watching lots of movies and discovering plenty of new music. My concert season was supposed to start just about now, but apparently I've missed one of them this Friday, The Horrors cancelled their European tour, so the gig I'm left with is Temples this Wednesday (which I'm more than excited about!). Hopefully, my almost non-existing sense of direction will allow me to find the venue in Antwerp and then I'll be the happiest person on the planet for the duration of the gig
Today's outfit features my favourite The Great Gatsby shirt, hich I've found in Waterstones. I've been looking for a sweatshirt or a tee with this print forever and it finally happened!
