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!

Yeah you're worth the trouble and you're worth the pain
And you're worth the worry, I would do the same
If we all went back to another time
I will love you over

Two weeks ago, I've had a chance to go to Paris and you never say no to Paris, right? Autumn is definitely the best time to visit the city, for me it's even more charming than usual as the colour palette of autumn trees suits the architecture so well. Besides all the things I had seen before and wanted to see once again like Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur or Notre Dame, my plan was to wander around in all those lovely streets of Montmartre, Saint-Germain, Marais or the Latin Quarter and enjoy the magical atmosphere. I have managed to see something new as I've finally visited Shakespeare and Company, which turned out to be the most beautiful book store ever and Deyrolle, a taxidermy shop, which looks as if it's taken out of a fairy tale (it's crammed with all these stuffed animals of all shapes, sizes and poses, as well as ancient wooden cases full of insects, shells, botanical prints and a variety of curiosities).
Oh it seems like I'll never get tired of Paris and I definitely want to visit it again!
Outfitwise, it was all about my new coat I got from Rose Wholesale. Plaid is definitely one of my favourite prints, especially for autumn, so I am more than happy with it
