colour mood & magazines

This is my colour mood today. Maybe it's the rainy weather or all the gorgeous flowers the florists at the Groenplaats square were offering yesterday. We went for a walk in the cloudy weather and had our latte at the Mockamore café by Groenplaats. Afterwards we went to one of the international magazine shops. I was at the counter when I realized that the July issue of ELLE UK I was buying came with a free Reiss summer top, featuring a beautiful illustration by the fabulous blogger Garance Doré. Love surprises like that! By the way, this month you won't get a photo of my Vogue Paris balcony moment because I didn't buy it. In my opinion, the June/July issue is utterly disappointing. Maybe I'll buy British Vogue instead; Vanessa Paradis is on the cover and it looks intriguing.

We are enjoying a long weekend in Belgium but tomorrow it's business as usual. Hope you're having a wonderful Monday!

  2. Lisa, I've just bought Elle UK, and it has no free top, no illustration of Garance...I hate it when they don't bring the special issues here. We have a long weekend as well in Romania and luckily today is sunnier than the last two days. :)
