Hey everyone! I had this eureka moment like 5 minutes ago… Well, not exactly, but I did realise something. I came up with this idea to keep a blog calendar, where I have days with the same kind of post every time. I had the ‘Facts/Confessions/Wishes‘ things on monday, which started out because I had these funny fashion stories in my mind… but I obviously forgot about them and now I’m finding myself without any inspiration.

What I do want to do on mondays - wait, the semi eureka moment is on its way – is write an article. Of course, I’d do it in an Afrodite kind of funny way and with pictures, don’t worry, but it’ll also a bit more actual writing to it. I don’t know, does it seem like a good idea? Or am I going to have another light bulb above my head next week?

Anyway, here it goes: shoes are bitches. Let me tell you why… They hurt like hell, cost too much but above all: they can be too pretty for words. Subconsiously, that leads to buying them. Yes, I never said girls were logical, now did I? I’ve been walking in pain (and pride) at school today because I was wearing my new Isabel Marant dicker boots. My boyfriend is going to laugh and feel so good about himself if he reads this. YES, they hurt… OKAY?! I’ll just admit it already…

But they did cost 100 euros only. And they’re Isabel Marant. And they’re blue … but also grey! In three words: they are perfect! Also: they’re not alone. No, ladies and gentleman, I have got this shoe collection with several pairs I can hardly walk on, let alone sit with… But still, we gave away all of our euros just to get a pair! Girls will definitely be girls!

Clothes are my alphabet

You’ve seen my recent buys in this post already and well this is the ‘sweater jacket’ - really don’t know how to call it – in the last picture. I told you I bought it because of the cool details most of us know as the alphabetdun dun duuun! It was a sunny day, the day these pics were taken. I went to Brussels with Jilkewho made these pics, thank you honey boo boo – to look for some vintage goodies over at Episode. I bought the cute mouse grey bow tie and Jilke fell in love with some black 501 cut off shorts and a good old cardigan. Afterwards, we felt like we were in Paris after ordering cheese and salami, which we had to cut ourselves. What looked weird first, was actually something cosy and fun. The times with Jilke are definitely good times!

This place is definitely a hotspot! So many people have written about it already and I understand why: Mamma Roma is the place to be when you found yourself around Flagey, Kastelein, Jourdan or Boondael exhausted after some walking and shopping… or if you’re too tired too cook yourself and craving for some good pizza! You can buy the pizza per weight and that way the whole family can enjoy! Mamma Roma does it differently: no slices to be found in this place, only “tiles” or as the Italians call it taglio! What else? They’re fresh! The pizza you see in front of you is the only pizza you can choose from. Obviously, the chef is preparing some more in the background and so they switch the tasty pizzas from time to time. I took the simple Margherita and Salame Piccante, as you can see in the last picture. Delicious is the proper word to describe it!

Mamma Roma offers two kinds of menu’s and you can also drink some soup or enjoy some antipasti… It’s your choice! I honestly think that Mamma Roma would be very succesful and loved in the city of Antwerp too!
