4 years

Wow. As you've probably guessed from the title: what you are reading right now just turned 4 years today! And I turned 15 a week and one day ago. This is weird. I don't even know what to say right now. Four years, if this was a real child it would already talk fluently and throw birthday parties with cake and confetti. (Disclaimer: the cliché part is coming) And I just want to say that although I often act as if this blog is just an embarrassment composed of self-absorbed writing spaced by intervals of utter neglect, I do care, I really really really do. I care about the comments and sweet emails, I do care about all the amazing events I was invited to attend because of this blog, I do care about the wonderful people I met through this blog and who actually became dear friends (this goes out to you: Alice, Jonas and of course Ophelia) and most of all I do care about you; you guys who take the time to read this (or just look at the pictures, I won't judge) and be so great and smart and very cool. Thank you for the four beautiful years and let's hope there may come even more.

Love,
Ibe

botanical garden

Hello! Today, I had a very nice day at the botanical garden in Antwerp today with Alice. We spent the afternoon talking, sketching plants, looking at the cacti, eating coconut and blueberries and taking photo's oh and I also picked up this really cute highwaisted jeans skirt at American Apparel! Perfect afternoon if you ask me. And I  took some outfit photo's there. My outfit wasn't that special today because uhm effort and also a two hour train ride so I am sorry. I've been wearing lots of black and white lately which is probably my stubborn character ignoring the fact that it is spring and that everyone is wearing pastels right now.
(I wish I knew what my hand was doing in this photo)
Wearing a black fisherman sweater from American Apparel (stolen from my sister), a striped black and white Topshop croptop (underneath the sweater), Urban Renewal jeans dungarees AGAIN, Babar patch is dead-stock from an old sewing shop, random tights (spot the run, such a professional fashion blogger), Fjallraven Kanken Classic, second hand Adidases.

I was so happy when I found this Babar patch! It was one of my favorite cartoons when I was younger and I remember watching it at my grandmum's on early sunday mornings. Also am I Ezra Koenig yet? 
The amazing Alice (click that link) took these photo's and you should go check out her blog

That's all for now.
But there are some exciting things coming up soon!
Love,
Ibe
