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.

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.

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.

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!

FAUX FUR COAT

Hi everyone! Last weekend I made a trip with my parents and sister to my number one favourite city: London! Travelling to the UK around this period has been sort of a tradition for the last years, and last week this made me realize once again that London really is the best city to visit in autumn. With all the beautiful parks covered in colourfull leaves and that last bit of sunshine, it was the perfect occasion to shoot some outfit pics. I can’t tell how much I love my new faux fur Zara coat! It’s so soft and warm and since most of my clothes are black, beige is an excellent match. You can’t see it very well in the pictures, but I combined it with a black faux leather skirt (H&M) and a red knit sweater (also Zara). The loafers are from Forever 21. I wore the same outfit at the Jax PR press days yesterday in Brussels. I don’t go to Brussels that often, but every time I visit our capital city I am amazed again how many beautiful houses there are.
