Comfy knits

February 20, 2012



I bought this cosy sweaterdress long before winter hit. I fell in love with the big cowl and pretty tan colour. I meant to wear it during those horribly cold days when the temperatures would not even reach -10°C, but honstely, I had totally forgotten about it! I rediscovered it at the bottom of my closet a few days ago and decided to style it up and give it a chance on the blog. I sweat my ass off that morning. 



Wearing: H&M sweaterdress, F21 Ring, Footwork Boots
Oh look, It's my face! Someone asked me why I always "hide" my face in my photos (I think he didn't check out my About page yet, it has been there the whole time...) so I decided I'd work on some close-ups. I'm still a bit impressed by having a camera that close to my face but I'll get used to it eventually. 

Also, I would like to say welcome to my new readers! I noticed that my traffic has been going down lately and I honestly don't feel so good about it. I'm starting up a blogging schedule where I'll try to post (at least) two times a week. It's a start! Thank you for those who stuck through my random posting period, I heart you!

XO Nikki

  2. Freaky! Ik dacht net hetzelfde! Ik heb zelfs al berekend op welke dagen van de week ik het meest post! Conclusie: woensdag en zondag.

    Great minds think alike, zeker? :D

  29. Hi Nikki, bedankt voor je reactie! Ik vind Leuven niet zo super om te winkelen, je hebt weinig originele zaken daar. De grootste winkelstraten zijn de Diestsestraat en de Bondgenotenlaan! Ik ga mijn best doen om tegen vanavond mijn lijstje met vintage shops in Leuven online te zetten, mocht je dat interesseren ;) !
