OOTD – Xandres Xline x Sabine Peeters

A couple of weeks ago I was excited to the new store opening of Xandres Xline, to celebrate the launch of Sabine Peeters’ capsule collection. Sabine is a makeupartist, author and blogger and she designed a small collection in collaboration with Belgian label Xandres.

The collection was inspired by a trip to mexico, and has a skirt, a pair of kickass green trousers, a shirt and 2 blouses. Unfortunately for me, the collection only goes up to a size 50, which means my juicy hips size 52 didn’t fit the bright green trousers I was crushing on. But plan B, the skirt with cactusprint, fit like a glove!

There is something so classic and timeless about A-line skirts, and to make things even better IT HAS POCKETS. I know. Much excitement. I paired it with the white blouse because I love the little detailing on the shoulder, and you can truly never go wrong with a classic white shirt.

It’s always so special and wonderful to see other bloggers achieve amazing things, and I’m so proud of Sabine and her collection. Also a special shoutout to Xandres, I know it takes guts to do collections like these but I’m glad you wanted to take the risk!

OOTD – Red suit love

It’s really funny that I’m such a dresses-kind-of-girl but keep posting suits on the blog! What can I say, I’m a sucker for co-ords and suits are the ultimate co-ord, right? This red suit is from Belloya, and it’s seriously the bomb. It’s made from a slightly stretchy material and has a close, tailored fit (Finally! Tailoring in plussize! Finally! FINALLY!). It comes in  black too, aka the colour of my heart, but a red suit makes such an impact that I just couldn’t resist. I took a very down-to-earth approach to styling it, and just paired it with a simple black tee and some heels. I personally don’t feel like this suit needs a lot of embellishment, it kinda speaks for itself, although I also envision it with a hot pink top or a white lace top or something… Maybe next time ;).

I’m basically addicted to these basic t-shirts from New Look. I buy them in bulk, so I always have a shirt to pair with skirts or to work out in, and it gives such a relaxed comfi vibe to an otherwise very fancy suit. They’re very light and, admittedly, slightly seethrough, but what’s the point in buying expensive bras if you can’t show them off right?
