Back from Summer break

I know it's been a while since I wrote a blogpost... 4 months to be exact. We've had such a busy Summer (and Fall) with a lot of visitors and a lot of travelling. Which was really nice, I got to see my parents, 2 of my girlfriends, my parents-in-law and my cousin and I got to show them all around Canada, or well, all around Ontario and Quebec ;) Gordon and I went camping a lot and travelled to Copenhagen and Iceland. So I really wanted to just enjoy these moments in real life.  

Also, I didn't feel inspired to write a blogpost, so I decided to just don't force it and wait until the time was right again. To be honest, I'm still not sure if this is something I want to continue doing. I mean, I love writing and love posting on the blog. But lately I've been thinking a lot (actually not lately, I always think too much probably) about the direction of the blog. I don't want to only post outfits (I still will post those, since I do love putting an outfit together and showing you guys) and keep things superficial, but I want to dive into the deep.

I get kind of sick seeing all these oh-so-perfect-lives on all the blogs and Instagrams. I'm guilty as well, because of course you're not going to hang all the dirty laundry outside, but I do miss sincere and real conversations and topics to write about. Don't get me wrong, everyone is different, so please stay true to yourself, that's the most important thing. Don't do things because other people are doing it! 

So while I'll keep searching for my thing and the direction I want to go in with my blog, here are some of my outfits from our most recent trip to Copenhagen and Iceland. Which one do you like best?
I hope you'll stick with me and if you can relate, please let me know. Also, don't be shy to let me know what kind of topics you would love to see me write about. 

With love,
Lara

Show that shoulder!

Miss Leatherpants

There is something about one-shoulder-tops that intrigues me. I find it really classy and I think almost everyone can get away with wearing a top like this. To me this definitely beats the 'total' off the shoulder trend we've seen so much lately. I think it's more flattering and you can wear it in a lot of different ways. 

I bought this top at Zara, of course, and instantly loved the print and that one puffy sleeve. It's actually a bodysuit, but I cut off the bottom part, since I don't think it's comfortable. I paired it with my black long skirt, that I bought at Vanilia almost 6 years ago and with my new Superga platforms. I love the fact that it's an overall black outfit, but still looks very summery and classy at the same time. I wore this outfit while strolling around the city and later that day to dinner. But if you would pair it with a straw bag and a straw hat, you'd be ready for a beach day. 

What do you think about the one-shoulder-top?

Lara

From day look to evening look

Miss Leatherpants

I remember when I was a teenager, I'd spent so many hours deciding on what to wear and on getting ready. All the clothes in the world weren't enough. Even though I still spent time on styling and putting a nice outfit together, I also didn't want it to take over. I mean, it's not the most important thing in life right?! 

So nowadays with clothes, I like good quality, minimalistic and timeless pieces. I think about in how many different ways I can style the piece, so I can wear it often in different ways. That's why I decided to take one of my favorite go-to dresses for summer, and just style it in two different ways. A more casual look for during the day and a more dressed up evening look. This dress is just perfect, it's pretty loose, it has the perfect length and (obviously) you can wear it in a lot of different ways. 

I decided to wear the black long dress with a simple white tee and for the day look I paired it with my black converse (I just can't get enough of these old school sneakers), my denim jacket and my waist-bag (sooo convenient). It's just a casual look that you can wear to a lot of things. I wore this while exploring Venice - LA. 
For the evening look, I just switched the shoes and the jacket and wore the bag differently. I styled it with my blue embroidered ankle boots and my leather jacket. I find a leather jacket gives the outfit a bit of a cool vibe, but because of the fit it also gives it a more dressed up feeling. This was the perfect evening look to have a quick stroll at Santa Monica Boulevard and then go for dinner. It was a great day (besides alle the traffic jams)! 

Which look do you like the best?
