We stayed in beautiful Lille, France for 3 days, hoping to get a little bit of sun but the weather seriously was not that different than it was is Holland :))
But we did have one good shiny day. And we’re grateful for that.
We stayed in Grand Hotel Bellevue. It was such a pretty old-style hotel (which I love!!) and the staffs are friendly and helpful.
I enjoy the colour palette of this hotel interior. Royal blue and gold, combined with marble surfaces here and there. Plus this old elevator was like the icing of the cake 🙂
When in France, gotta check the vast option of beauty products at the pharmacy.
This red dress is vintage, got it from Episode vintage shop in Amsterdam.
Is it wine o’clock already?
The next day…
Dress from Mango.
We had the best quiche ever!!
At the citadel.
If you happen to visit Lille and enjoy vintage shopping, you need to go here!! (picture below) The lady owner was super lovely and stylish! Although her English was not so good, she helped me a lot. I could feel her sincerity and her love for the stuffs she sells. I got myself a couple of super chic and lovely trousers here.
And get yourself some sweets from Meert. Because you deserve it 😉
This jacket I got from a vintage shop in Antwerp. Yes, I love vintage clothing! (and furniture too..)
Dinner at the infamous local restaurant Les Compagnons de la Grappe. Come here a bit earlier because this place gets full really quickly! My advice, when you’re here, try their Carbonnade flamande. It is a specialty dish in Lille, beef stew cooked in beer. You’re welcome.
Here comes the last day. Time to go home..
Dress is also vintage, I bought it in Den Haag.
Train ride, nice scenery, a good book, and some sweets.. Perfection.
See you on next post!
