Marollywood and a bohemian seventies vintage dress

Every week me and my boyfriend Ewoud go on a little trip to the center of Brussels called the Marolles, where they have an awesome organic farmers market. We especially like it there because the people are friendly and the organic food is not too expensive. We live five feet from an organic supermarket that charges twice the price for vegetables and fruit so we prefer driving into Brussels and making a day out of it. Perfect occasion to show of one of my favorite seventies boho dresses. It’s so hot in Belgium right now and this airy breezy dress is just what I need to keep me cool. The weather in Belgium has been so complex lately going from hot to cold to rain. I’m glad the weather gods are on my side and that they made getting dressed a little easier today.

Some short advice regarding the sales…

 

  1. Look at your wardrobe and write down what you need aka make a list.
  2. Decide on your budget and stick to it. This is the easiest if you only carry cash. Remember to keep it somewhere safe to avoid pickpockets especially if you’re going to a big city.
  3. Splurge on classics-save on the trend items.
  4. Make sure to have a rest budget for small crazy splurges on things you don’t really need, like ear cuffs or a make up palette in neon colors – just in case you want to go embrace the eighties this summer, you never know. This rest budget also includes money for food and drinks aka fun fun fun!  with your sales crazy girlfriends !
  5. Have fun !
