Antwerp and the days surrounding by Mike Tyle

As stated in my previous post things, as well as in the title, I went to Antwerp this past Friday for work, check my Antwerp gallery I just made to show off some of the things I saw.

I always love traveling any chance I can get and the luxury of life in Europe especially in the Rhine-Ruhr is that I am close to a lot of great places. A two hour car ride and voila you can be in Antwerp, Brussels or Amsterdam. A bit over two hours longer and in Paris!

Last shopping trip a couple months ago we went to Amsterdam so this time the team split up again and I headed to Antwerp with a couple other designers. We had a great time. The weather was nice and I'm pretty sure we shopped the entire city. Seriously, on foot from 10-9 with a 30 min break. We got some exciting finds in the vintage shops and great books that will come in handy as well. 

I'm working on a city guide which I hope to have finished and posted soon...

In the mean time here are some looks from the past week: 

Walking home from work... armless.

shirt- Gap kids, tie- vintage leather tie (one of my faves) I found while in Italy.

Jeans ripped in both legs the same day! These pants are at least 8 yrs old. I don't even know where I got them from...

Also I feel like this looks like those "hot dogs or legs?" pics, ha!

t-shirt- Character Hero jaquard weave.

My plants were dying in the house but are thriving on the balcony! AKA away from me.

shirt- COS, pants- H&M, shoes- COS, backpack- from middle school, ha!

Pouring rain I was stuck in the house on the weekend.

v-neck sweater- J.Crew, shorts- American Apparel, belt- Banana Republic

Obsessed with this Banana Republic belt.

Since being back I have been getting into the daily schedule at work, catching up with meetings, sifting though emails (only 750!) and being inspired by my surroundings. Which is a great thing; but getting a chance to relax is also great and spending time with family and friends is more than wonderful and not to be take for granted!

I will be adding a few new albums soon of my 3 weeks at home, which I am still trying to decide how to split it up between themes... but in the mean time a long awaited style post (Part 1)! See below for the results and I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

P.S.- there will be some repetition in pieces as I was limited by a suitcase, but I did my best to make it work depending on the event at hand!
