Cosy Sunday

sweater: Zara / jeans: Topshop / socks: Minga Berlin

Finally time for a new outfit post! My reading list for Swedish literature has kept my quite occupied for the last couple of weeks, and this is the perfect outfit for chilling out at home and reading lots of Strindberg and Ibsen while sipping some tea. I love how fresh the colours look, and how the socks give a pop of colour even when I have my shoes on, because the jeans are on the shorter side. And besides that, it's just really warm and comfy. Have a nice Sunday everyone!

PS: If you like the socks, you can still enter my Minga Berlin giveaway to win a set of these, here :)

GIVEAWAY: win a Minga Berlin giftbox!

Hi everyone! December's here, and all of a sudden it's freezing cold outside. The wintery weather (and the fact that we already have Christmas decorations at the department of Scandinavian studies) has totally gotten me into the Christmas atmosphere. I know it's still a few weeks, but why celebrate for only two days if you might just as well celebrate it for an entire month, right? :)

With all those winter feelings comes a love for cosy sweaters and colourful socks. I like the ones from Minga Berlin a lot, because they just brighten up every outfit and they're made of this super soft cotton. I thought it would be nice to give one of you a little Christmas present, so I teamed up with Minga Berlin and I get to give away one gift box!

This is what you have to do to enter the contest:

1. Follow Minga Berlin on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
2. Follow rougeimaginaire on Bloglovin' or Facebook.
3. Leave a comment on this blogpost and tell me why you would like to win! Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you.

The giveaway is international and it will end on the 19th of December.

In collaboration with Minga Berlin.

sweater: Zara / shirt: COS / jeans: Cheap Monday/ shoes: Converse / backpack: Fjällräven Kånken

Hey everyone, I'm back with another look! I thought I'd mix things up a little and try a different way of editing my pictures. In a way, I think this is more like how you perceive someone's outfit in real life: you see the whole picture but at the same time you notice all these nice little details. I wore this outfit to school last week, and it kind of brightened up my day because I like it so much.

There's actually a story behind these pants. So you might know that Cheap Monday recently celebrated its 10th birthday. To celebrate that, they handed out one thousand free pairs of jeans in ten cities all over the world, and Antwerp was one of them! So I expected it would be a total chaos, but I still decided to try my luck, and I succeeded! They're not exactly the right length, so I might make them a little bit shorter, but for now I'm just wearing them with the legs rolled up. It was not easy to combine this colour (everything I tried looked just too rock chick or something), but I ended up pairing it with a light grey sweater and a dark grey backpack. But what really makes the difference is the white shirt that I'm wearing underneath. It's made out of this fabric that's so stiff that it almost doesn't feel like cotton anymore (but it is!) and I like how it's longer in the back. Also, I've been loving this half-up top knot hairstyle lately. So, how are you guys doing?

I'm little My and I bite because I like it

sweater: second hand / scarf: Zara / dress: Ebba Z for Sin / shoes: Dr. Martens

Just a quick post to wish you guys a very happy Halloween, and to show you this year's Halloween costume! This year, I decided to dress up as one of the characters from the Moomin series: Little My! She's this angry little girl, but she's very brave and adventurous as well, and I quite like her. In one of the episodes she makes a house from a giant pumpkin. So I though it would be fun to dress up as her. I'm not sure what I'll be doing tonight: I might go to a Halloween party, or I might just stay inside watching a scary-but-not-too-scary movie. What are your plans for tonight?
