The Centre of European Culture!
Here are a few photos from my trip to Brussels this past weekend and what an incredible experience that was! As my first solo trip in a while, I had the opportunity to make new friends, see new places and have a crazy fun time. So, with that said… On Friday, I met my Airbnb host and his friends. We played music and talked until the early hours on Saturday. *oops*
The following day, I decided to explore some of the touristy sights of Brussels. From Grand Place to the Royal Palace, Brussels really boasts of culture and history. The city centre was super touristy, so it took me a while to find a place where I could just chill and have some local cuisine.
Later that day, I met my friend who I first met in Lisbon. *Eurovision bro alert* We indulged in some Belgian waffles (pictured below), traditional blond beer and even managed to have gin on tap at one of the PR events nearby. So much fun!
On this occasion, I paired a Double Dogtooth Check Coat with Mohair Plaid Crew Neck Jumper, both from the latest French Connection AW18. To complete this look, I added formal trousers and two-tone double monk strap shoes. This is a very day out in the city look. Therefore, it would really make any gent feel confident when prancing around this cultural and historical centre of Europe.
I think everyone should own a check coat this autumn because it’s a very versatile piece that would go with pretty much anything. I’d say, it’s a good investment! *yasss*
