You know that feeling when you put an outfit on and while wearing it you think, damn I actually feel good in this. I felt so confident in my new Arte Antwerp sweater with the good old Levi’s jeans and vintage Céline scarf. It’s probably not my greatest combo ever but this is totally me: not too basic, not too streetwear and not too vintage but a little mix of everything. The only detail I didn’t take into account is that wearing a sweater when it’s sunny and 24 degrees outside isn’t the best idea. So a little note to self: wear a decent top underneath next time.

By the way… when in the Kammenstraat in Antwerp, go and have a look at the new Arte shop. It’s actually a men’s collection but as you can see, it doesn’t look to bad on girls either 😉 And instead of buying another item at Zara, why not wear and support an upcoming Belgian brand!
