I've been after a good pair of mom jeans ever since I can remember. ASOS Farleigh ones were always at the top of my list, but my size seemed to always be sold out when I was ready to order. Miraculously, I managed to not only snag my size, but also a 20% discount a couple of weeks ago, and so I've been living in these jeans ever since. Due to a previous experience with the gray Farleigh jeans being a tad too long, I ordered these in length 30, as opposed to my usual 32. 

I'm also excited to show my new hair on the blog for the first time (if you haven't seen it on my snapchat @kristiana_v or instagram already). This is also the second shoot I've done with my Olympus Pen, which I got all the way back in September. It took me a while to start using it more because a) I'd lost my creative mojo and b) my lens equipment was not enabling me to use it to its full potential, as I initially only bought the 45mm lens which is best for outfit shots, rather than day to day snaps. Now I've got the standard lens too, and suddenly I'm a lot more excited to use my Pen!

Today I'm also flying to Lanzarote for a couple of days with the family. I've been looking forward to this trip for ages, because I've been experiencing severe wanderlust during the past year. I might also add that watching Point Break in the cinema yesterday made me want to go and explore even more. Perhaps not the stealing money or gold bombing parts, more the wingsuit flying and extreme snowboarding. Til next time!

Hello, it's me.

I didn't mean to include Adele's lyrics in the title of this post. But come on, I had to. I hope you still remember me? It's not like this blogging break was planned, not at all actually. I guess I've been addressing a certain creative meltdown in some of my last posts, but I always tried to somehow pull through it. Then winter came and bed was too comfortable to leave, the camera never came out with me, and I was basically the epitome of the "too cold to be pretty" meme that's been floating around Facebook. At the end of the day, it was clearly time for a system refresh regarding blogging. It felt good not having to worry about the blog during my exams, however the longer I put it off, the more I missed it. So here I am. 

Since the last time we spoke I've quit my job, I've finished my University exams, I'm also the Online Director for the new fashion mag at my Uni and I've also got a new haircut. My daily life is slightly different now, somewhat less stressful with more free time (imagine waking up at 7AM every Saturday and 8:30AM every Sunday for your weekend job after a full week of uni). Although I don't want to make any promises, I really want to dive back head first into all my online activities. I'm especially active on snapchat, so make sure to follow me on kristiana_v.

Also, I hope you enjoy this outfit from November, when I went to visit Kaori in Leuven. Most of the items are still available, and it's *only* two months old, so I thought I might as well post it for now. Until next time!
