sunglasses - Nasty Gal / necklace - Forever 21 / jacket - Forever 21 / tote - Forever 21 / silk shirt - vintage, thrifted / overdyed skinnies - Zara / sneakers - Target

I really wanted to post these pictures yesterday, but the last minute scrambling of another international move got in the way - honestly, you'd think I'd be better at planning those by this point! Of course I'm now completely exhausted from the moving day from hell (honestly, I'm a very non-confrontational person, but I came this close to physical violence today - but more on that another time) and have a rapidly dying laptop battery with no hopes of a quick recharge (when you plug in your adapter and it emits visible sparks and pops back out of the outlet with a crack, that's a bad thing, right?), so I'm afraid this will have to be a little short and sweet.

I wore this outfit on a day trip to Bruges over the weekend; since I knew we'd be doing a great deal of walking (and having become accustomed to the highly variable Belgian weather), I opted for lightweight layers, a tote bag big enough for a few umbrellas, and comfortable sneakers. We managed to avoid getting rained on until the very end of our walk back to the train station, but the breeze was pretty stiff all day - I had a hard time finding any photos in which my shirt hadn't blown up or my bangs weren't flying around like crazy. I loved the color of this blouse with my jacket and necklace, and it kept my outfit easy without leaving me feeling sloppy or underdressed. Naturally, I managed to get a little teeny ketchup stain on the hem while sharing some frieten with Chris, but I've chosen to just think of it as a distinctly Flemish souvenir.

Oh where are you now? Did you have time to go to Ghent? Did you like Bruges?

The turquoise necklace against the coral is gorgeous!

Thanks Devin!

emily said...

 Haha, well, to be fair this wasn't a moving day outfit - that necklace is way too elaborate and delicate to manage carrying bags! I'll post the actual moving outfit soon though - chocolate stains, broken necklace and all, heh.

emily said...

Thank you!

I'll be posting about our new home later today, but we did get to go to Ghent on Tuesday and had a great time! We loved Bruges too, but Ghent felt so much more like a real city - Bruges was more like a fairy-tale place than somewhere I could actually imagine living.

Thanks Sorcha!

I thought this looked like Bruges!  I spent 3 months backpacking through Western Europe  four years ago, and Bruges was one of my favorite cities.  I was there in June as well and remember being caught on my bicycle in the midst of an evening down pour...and I was freezing so I understand the need for layers. 

I love your turquoise necklace with the coral shirt!

This whole outfit is great. I'm especially loving the contract of the teal necklace with the coral shirt! - Katy

 We loved our trip to Bruges too, everything about the city was so picturesque! And of course, it didn't hurt that while we were there, we ate the best waffle I had in Belgium. :)

emily said...

 Thanks Katy! This is definitely an outfit formula (and a color combination) that I will be coming back to again and again on this trip!
