I wrote about the mule as the shoe of the season a few days ago, but when we're talking comfortable shoe of the season, the slip-on is definitely the winner. I might have bought them in two different prints already and I have my eye on another pair. I know. But I don't have to justify myself cause I know you guys love them as much as I do. I mean: comfortable and stylish, what else do you want?
(Answer: I still want those mules, yespleasethankyouverymuch)

The mule

Once again Zara is spot on, presenting us the it-shoe of the season, the mule. There's no denying that the 90s and 00s are back - in fact, I remember how my neighbour used to drive us to school wearing shoes exactly like this, and I thought they were the ugliest shoes I'd ever seen (hey, I was only 10, I thought the coolest thing to wear was a combination of all of these) but luckily times change, and now I feel myself wanting a pair of probably totally uncomfortable (and definitely unsuitable for Amman's sidewalks) shoes. Be still, my heart.

LFW Favourites

Admiring from afar is what I've been doing for the last two Fashion Week seasons. Not that I was ever invited anyway, but Fashion Week has never seemed so far away since I moved to the Middle East. I've been following my favourite designers though, and definitely liked what I saw. I picked two of my LFW favourites for this post, starting with Topshop Unique. I have to admit I've always have a soft spot for their collection, mainly because it's about the only one I could ever actually afford to buy something from! Being a huge leather & faux fur fan, I could only approve (and long for colder days - Winter is definitely over here, boo)

Next up is Maison Martin Margiela, another favourite (gotta support my Belgian heritage!) who definitely inspired me to invest in some silky trousers (always a winner in the Middle East) and I wouldn't mind that jumpsuit either. Their FW collection also goes perfectly with my resolution of wearing black for the rest of my life, so that's set.

What are your favourites this season?

Second home

Showing people around Amman and Jordan almost makes me feel like this is my country now. Actually it's the first year since secondary school that I'm living in the same place, not having to carry all my stuff back home every weekend (and have my mum do my laundry... I know) so it's only fair to say Amman has become my second home! Of course I had to take my visitors to Downtown Amman for the best falafel ever and then we were off to the Dead Sea, where the temperatures were thankfully a bit higher than the last time I went. We covered ourselves with Dead Sea mud, took a million of "look I'm floating!" pictures and watched the sunset - can I go back please?

I can't seem to stop buying white clothes, although I keep on getting them dirty. Actually they don't even have to be white: yesterday on the bus to Aqaba I managed to spill coffee all over me, and since I only brought one pair of jeans with me ("I'm only away for two days!" I don't know myself at all..) I will now have to wear either my leather look shorts (only appropriate for the beach, and even then..) or a pair of coffee stained jeans. Romantic Valentine's weekend ftw! 
PS: Reverting back to all black outfits tomorrow (no evidence of spilling whatsoever), probably till the end of my life - don't say I didn't warn you.

Grey matters

I'm back from my semi-break! As you know, I got some company this week and of course I had to show them around Jordan - picture overload to follow. For now, I'm glad to have my boyfriend in town, not only for his great company (obv) but also because he always takes my outfit pictures without complaining (as long as he gets his share of hummus every day he's happy) I often don't get the chance to photograph my daily outfits as I'm too busy with schoolwork (boo) or there's no one nearby who can take my pictures... Note to self: bribe friends with homemade muffins to have them take your pictures.

I'm wearing my new boots I bought in the Topshop sale (only one pair left, in my size: a true case of 'meant to be') and after the obligatory first day-blister they have become a good companion in the still chilly Amman weather. See you soon!

Amman snapshots

Just some snapshots of Amman - I've been playing tourist in my onw city again, this time with my boyfriend, sister and her boyfriend! Too bad the weather has been so cold here, although we've been warming ourselves with tea and falafels (you can never have too many...) Tomorrow w're off to the Dead Sea and Petra, which I'm quite excited for although it'll be my 3rd time already! I've also been forcing my boyfriend/photographer to take outfit pictures every single day since he arrived, so expect loads of outfit posts in the next few weeks! Talk to you soon!
