Recently, I have found out that the places you think you know best probably have some sides to them you weren’t aware of yet. No, I’m not going to start complaining about hidden red light districts or secret criminal neighborhoods. I’m talking about the beautiful hidden forest in my street or the place today’s pictures were taken: the beguinage right off my university’s campus.
Brenda knew about it and suggested it as a fun excursion slash outfitshoot backdrop and I absolutely loved it: the minute we stepped through the doors, it was like we were in another time and a hidden city! Antwerp’s noise disappeared completely and we were walking adorable crooked cobblestone streets that looked positively medieval. Or just plain old, I’m no historic. I just googled it, the beguinage apparently dates back to 1545, JUST out of the dark ages. Anyway, I felt like I was at a theme park or BRUGES or something so I’m definitely returning to take pics again.
My outfit is a bit of a mess and my coat blends into the brick walls, but I like the double plaid and my new boots. Proper leather equestrian style boots that will look SO nice with my midi length skirts and dresses while still being comfortable, yeay!
