Annabelle Pesant X House of Articles: parisian chic in ghent

Hi everyone! Here I am, once again, with a fashion blog post. Lately I’ve been really enjoying reading about fashion on other people’s blogs, and I decided that I wanted to create some more fashion related content, too. After all, Rooftops & Runways started out as a ‘fashion and travel blog’. Last week I posted my blog post about my collaboration with Hunkemöller and I got so many sweet comments on it. Thank you so much for that! Today’s blog post is all about a fashion shoot I did some time ago with Naomi. In the summer, we went shooting together for the first time and since I really enjoyed that, I wanted to do this another time.

My favourite items of the new Doutzen’s Stories collection by Hunkemöller

Last Tuesday, October 30, was the launch of the new “Doutzen’s Stories” collection by Hunkemöller. I got approached by Hunkemöller to be one of the first to receive some items of this collection, and of course I said yes! When it comes to lingerie, I have a soft spot for black lace, and this collection has a lot of that. I’ve always liked the designs by Hunkemöller and especially the ones from the collections in collaboration with dutch model Doutzen Kroes.

Leopard skirt

Hi everyone! The past couple of days have been extremely busy for me as the new school year started on Monday. Last Saturday I came back from an amazing trip to Bali and the jet lag clearly affected my body more than I was expecting. This, plus the fact that my time table isn’t fixed yet made it quite of a stressful week for me. Today, however, is a Sunday, a day to de-stress and relax, and do one of the things I like the most: writing for my blog! Today’s blog post is all about an outfit I want to share with you.

Travel in style: the wishlist

Hi everyone! I just got back from my trip to Paris and once again I realized that I have a love-hate relationship with packing suitcases. Although traveling is my favourite thing to do, deciding what to take with me and trying to create outfits that are comfortable without making me look like a tourist can make me a bit stressful. That’s why I decided to make a list of a few items you can take with you on a holiday, items that are both stylish and convenient. Enjoy!

RAINS

Summer vacation has finally started and most of the time the weather has been really nice here in Belgium. However, as I’m on the train writing this blog post on my way home from work I can see how the sky has gradually changed colour and turned grey. Rain is coming. I have always had a love-hate relationship with rain, like most people probably have. Watching a movie under a blanket with the sound of the rain drops ticking on the window can make me feel really relaxed after a long, stressful day and whenever there is a storm I like to open my window so I can hear the thunder better. But when I’m outside or on a city trip I prefer a bright sky and sunshine over everything. As you may have seen on my Instagram, I will be studying in the United Kingdom for a semester, starting this September (more about this later !). While most of my friends will spend their time in the sunny South of France, I will be conquering the rain almost daily. Then a good rain coat isn’t a luxury.

Getting ready for summer with Hunkemoller

Hi guys! Vandaag blog ik uitzonderlijk nog even in het Nederlands. Binnen een weekje al neem ik samen met mijn ouders en zus het vliegtuig naar Kreta. #excited! Toen Hunkemöller mij vroeg of ik iets wou uitkiezen uit hun assortiment van swimwear, hoefde ik geen twee keer na te denken. Zoals je ziet op de foto, is het deze felroze bikini geworden. I’m in love! Lees zeker verder als je benieuwd bent wat mij aansprak aan deze bikini en hoe ik van plan ben deze te combineren op het strand.

Purple Crystal Necklace

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have another webshop to share with you. Glidz is an online shop where you’ll find necklaces, bracelets and earrings, most of them made of natural materials. This week I was lucky to receive one of their products in my mailbox and couldn’t wait to share my thoughts and pictures with you. Keep on reading if you’re interested in this recently founded brand and in how I will style my new necklace.

On Wednesdays we wear pink

Hi everyone! Last week we had some beautiful weather in Belgium which, although I absolutely love Winter, always instantly makes me feel happier. This was the perfect opportunity to finally wear my new pink bomber jacket I bought recently in the sales at H&M. The price was reduced to €12, so a real bargain! The dress I’m wearing is a black T-shirt dress from Pull&Bear, I combined it with a pair of fishnet tights (Asos) and a pair of Dr. Martens inspired booties (Pull&Bear). Lastly, I’m also wearing a silver stars and moon necklace from H&M.

love, Chloé

#OOTD: Big blogger date, Ghent

Hi everyone! I feel like it has been ages since I wrote my last blog post. Due to exams I had no time at all to write or even take outift pictures. But now those two horrible months of studying are over, I finally have time to work out all the ideas I’ve got in my head.  Since the new semester started today, I’m back at my dorm room in Ghent which means it’s time to look for hotspots and go to cool events again. One of those hotspots is Madam Bakster. Madam Bakster is a guiltfree and vegan bakery that recently opened it’s first branch in Ghent. I was really excited when I heard about the opening so I was beyond happy when blogger Hanne from Hannewhale organized a big blogger date at Madam Bakster.

A ‘Chaud’ winter with Flâneur

It’s going to be a cold, cold Christmas… Yesterday was the 21st of December which means that it’s officially Winter! I am enjoying my favourite season to the fullest by visiting some Christmas markets in my neighbourhood, drinking lots of hot cocoa and decorating my house and dorm room while having  Jingle Bells stuck in my head all day.  And not to forget: wearing furry coats and cosy sweaters, such as this navy one from the brand Flâneur. This Ghent-based brand was founded only a few months ago and I’m a fan already. Keep on reading, because at the moment a part of the price you pay for a T-shirt or sweater goes to a good cause that fights against child labour!
