Shotbyme (surfing pictures and the first one shot by Carlos)

Hiiiii there! I'm back in the game after a very well deserved break! In fact, I flew to the Canaries Islands for my summer holiday. I talked about my love for travelling a billion times here so I won't do it again... This trip was maybe my favourite one because I discovered a place I knew nothing about, a sport I (almost) never tried (and felt in love with it, literally!!) and met wonderful people! Seriously, I wish all my next trips will be as rewarding as this one. As you can see on the pictures, I took some surfing lessons. Everyday was a new challenge and I finally stand up after two days! Thanks to the Quiksilver Surf School Fuerteventura team!
No outfit pictures... Sorry! I took my camera but it stayed in my luggage for the whole week. I just enjoyed my journey to the most, really. And it.feels.so.good! Not that taking outfit picture is boring, not at all, it's just that I was always doing something and the sun went down quiet early in the evening (when it would have been nice to take some outfit pictures).
Anyway, how was your summer? Tell me! Where did you go?

#72 SEPTEMBER WISHLIST

Acne jacket - Tecla Bcn clutch - Topshop boots - & Other Stories shorts - Isabel Marant sweater


I told you... Too many ideas are running through my head when talking about new clothes. So here's my September wishlist! Ah, September... This month full of new things. Fashion week is in full swing, school is just around the corner (if not already begun) and a new season is more than almost there. Do I need to go further? I think it's enough as excuses to buy some new clothes! I like this month as it's kind of an other New Year. It's a time of the year where I plan some things to be done and look at what I've done the months before. Well, for now with this northern weather, I plan to stay warm in pieces like these ones above. This jacket is in.my.mind.since.last.year, to me, the perfect one. Let me talk to you about this little Spanish brand (you know my love for whatever that brings fashion and Spain) I just discovered this week: Tecla Bcn. They propose different models of clutches where you can have your own initials on it. I have to say I cannot wait to see the FW14 collection and buy one for me! Shorts, shorts, shorts, I think it's a really nice alernative for the Winter, it's comfy and cute at the same time. And even more when paired with a bit knit sweater and little boots;)
What's on your wishlist for the next season? Let me know, I'm intrigued! xx

You won't see a lot of me posting here for the next days as I'll be on holiday abroad. So if you want to follow my journey, follow me on Instagram @walkisanillusion!

#71 FRAGRANCE


Elixir Des Merveilles, Hermès


Shotbyme

Gosh, I've never noticed that finding the right fragrance is such an adventure! I've always been used to fall for perfume i smell and like "at first sight" (or "at first smell", i should say). Well, I've been wearing Elixir Des Merveilles since two years and I must say that I still love it. A lot. But sometime I think it's nice to go for little changes. I explain myself... As you can see on the picture, my bottle is almost empty. So I thought it will be the right time to buy a new one. I went to a really nice shop just a few steps from my work where I was sure I could find the right and very "me" perfume. It's not a secret that I'm someone complicated at some time but, here, I swear I'm the most easy-going girl. Today it was the fifth time in a week I pushed the door of Senteurs d'Ailleurs. As the fourth time before, I left with two differents scents on my writs and still, it's not yet the one I'm looking for. Trust me, each fragrance sold in this shop is amazing and their sales assistants are even more fantastics. The same woman took care of me, each time, and has a powerful patience. I may go back in a few days, because I'm convinced that I'll find the "me" perfume very soon. Stay tuned, I promise I'll let you know, maybe I'll also pop a bottle of champagne, haha! What fragrance are you wearing? Do you have several ones? Tell me:) xx

#70 AUGUST WISHLIST


Topshop jeans, kimono and boots - Isabel Marant Etoile belt - Zoé Karssen sweater


I am totally torn between summer and autumn clothes. With all the September issues and their winter editorials, the FW14 campaigns everywhere, and this ironic weather we are lucky to have in Brussels I can't deny Autumn is on the corner. But on the other side, I can't let summer go. So, here is my August wishlist with pieces I would wear on different seasons. Since a few months now (yes, trust me, months) I'm on the seek of the perfect black belt. Isabel Marant did a really nice one here! You may have noticed that most of these clothes are from Topshop. Nothing dubious after my trip to Northern Ireland. I know I can buy this brand online but everytime I go there, I pay a visit to Topshop. I think I spent one hour and a half there when in Ireland two weeks ago, and I almost check their website everyday since I'm back in Belgium, oops!
Well, Trust me I won't wait a full month to fill in my September wishilst. I've already spotted some amazing clothes! Stay tuned;) xx

Hi there! Here is an other outfit I wore in Northern Ireland. It was my last day and it was raining cats and dogs. No matter the rain, I enjoyed this day to the fullest spending some time with family, all together. What could I asked more before I head back to Brussels?
I don't often dress all in black but everytime I wear this kind of monorchrome outfit, i like it. And we all know the virtues of this colour, right?:)
Well, have a nice Sunday you walkers, I'll write you very soon! xx

#68 MEDIUM BLONDE HAIR









Pictures via Tumblr and Pinterest


Hi there! As I'm writing to you, I'm on the bus with destination Dublin airport where I'll take my flight back home. Already. I always want to stay longer when I come over Ireland.... I have to say, I had a very sweet time here. Now, time to go back to work for three weeks and then I'll be off again!!
Well, here are a few inspirational pictures of a hairstyle I always loved. I used to have this haircut when I was a child, maybe that's why I keep having long hair now, haha! I admit it's been a big while now since I have the same haircut. I like the fact that I can attach my hair if I want, make different hairstyles, etc... What about your hair? Are your more experimental? Do you have the same haircut since a while or do you like to change it often? Let me know;) xx

#67 PORTRUSH




Vintage sunglasses - Islington shirt - Kris Van Assche t-shirt - Zara leggings - Nike sneakers - Tiffany&Co ring


ShotbyNell

Hi there! The ones who follow me on Instagram already know that I took a little holiday break to go and see family in Ireland. Everytime I come over here, I really like to relax. As I'm at the seaside, more precisely, I'm always in a different atmosphere from Brussels and it feels oh-so good. Well, on these pictures you can see what I wore for my first day here. Very comfy to drink some (several) cups of tea down in front of the sea, walks on the beach and precious family time. Some quality time is on my bucket list so stay tuned cause I'll share some of it here;) xx
