Jenny Don't Be Hasty
Winter time has arrived and I'm not complaining! So happy being able to take out my newest winter items, including this coat by La Redoute. While scrolling through the La Redoute website a few weeks ago, this coat caught my attention because of its beige / soft pink color and the perfect length during winter. Not too short, not too long aka perfect. As Billie, my lovely photographer, and I were on our way to grab a coffee and discover some cool art books I received for my birthday, we stopped by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp) to shoot this look. Amazing location, for sure, so if you ever pass by, go have a look! Oh and the books that I received are 'The Polaroid Book' and 'De Stijl by Mondrian', both really cool and interesting. So as I mentioned I'm combining my newest coat with high rise wide leg trousers and my comfy pair of Vans. As you know, I'm a huge fan of turtleneck jumpers, as they're easy to wear, classy ánd they keep you warm (kind of important too). I'm finishing this look with the Bobbie handbag by Antik Batik. Each piece is handmade, and therefore very unique. While writing this post I was listening to one of my favorite songs of Paolo Nutini, called 'Jenny Don't Be Hasty'. Released in 2006 and immediately one of the songs that has permanently stayed in my favorite playlist. For those interested, the song is about a personal experience of the Scottish singer, in which a 18-year-old boy wants to have a relationship with an older women. Yet she's angry with him for lying about his real age. Definitely a song to look up if you did not listen to it before :) So that's what the title of this blogpost stands for.
