Outfit Repeat Offender

Outfit Repeat Offender

When I first started style blogging I quickly learned a few new-to-me fashion rules. No white after Labour Day? I had never heard that one before! Redheads can’t wear red? For sure we can! And probably the most bizarre of all: you can’t wear the same outfit twice. WHAT!? I’ve read blog posts and fashion articles calling outfit repeating “daunting”, “lazy dressing” and “a fashion faux-pas”. Also according to those articles, women are &…

A Black Fedora

A Black Fedora

blouse: Zara • jeans: Madewell (10″ High Rise) • ballet flats: Clarks • bag: Massimo Dutti • Fedora: Brixton (model: Wesley) Spring has sprung and we are well on our way to Summer by now. Well, I don’t think Mother Nature has looked at the calendar recently since it’s freezing cold and continuously raining out here! Luckily we got to enjoy some beautiful days in March and early April. I managed to shoot my favorite Spring looks while out and about …

AD | Dress Code: Loungewear

AD | Dress Code: Loungewear

Confession: It takes exactly 0.5 seconds for me to change into my comfiest loungewear after I get home from work. I can do it even faster if I skip the “Honey, I’m Home!”. It’s reality that my boyfriend rarely sees me in anything other than my casual wear on weekdays. I’m lucky that he values the cuddle-factor of my outfits more than their general appeal, haha. We’ve both been big fans of my newest set, that …

The Best Knitwear

The Best Knitwear

When I was still in school H&M was my go-to for knitwear. They did and still do the best sweaters, jumpers and cardigans in the €20-40 price category. The secret with H&M is to hit the shop early. Their earliest fall pieces are their absolute best and by shopping my sweaters while it wasn’t exactly sweater weather just yet, I always managed to find the ones I wanted still available in my my size. Every summer I’…

Indian Summer Dreams

Indian Summer Dreams

Guys, these must be my favorite blog photos everrrrr. And that says something, considering that I’ve been doing this since 2009 (how has it been 9 years!?). My friend Melissa has recently started doing hair & make-up. As she’s new on the mua scene she’s working a lot to create her portfolio and asked me to model for her!  Now, you all know that I don’t wear make-up and the fanciest thing I’ve ever done …

Pop It, Lock It, …

… polka dot it! Ah, Miley Cyrus songs are my favorites to reference to in blog post. Hers and Justin Biebers. If you doubt my level of adulthood now, you’re right to do so. On to what I really want to write today! There was no trend I loved as much as the polka dot trend this past summer. I’m always a bit hesitant to jump on a new trend and usually like to dip my toes in first. But this …

Return of the Mini

Return of the Mini

By now we all know that leopard print and western vibes are going to be huge this fall. Instagram is basically a zoo these days, haha! One of the trends that isn’t getting much attention just yet is the return of mini skirts and dresses. Very noughties and probably a trend that will pick up more once we start to head for the Holiday season (did I just dare go there?).  Mini skirts are very unlike me. I am aaaaall about midi-length …

In The Rose Garden

In The Rose Garden

Yes my friends, that is one more pair of culottes. I didn’t shop for any other pants this summer, so I guess you’re stuck with photos of me in culottes for a while, haha. I will admit that I came this close to titling this post “I never promised you a rose garden”, but I didn’t so that deserves a mention. It would’ve been a fitting title though. The last few weeks have been a …

All-Black in Summer

All-Black in Summer

I have one simple rule for dressing during a heat wave: Avoid sleeves at all costs. It is no wonder then, that I have been living in this sleeveless top the past few weeks. Or wait, it actually is… . I wore this top more times this summer than I have in total all the years that I’ve owned it, haha. I bought it on a whim at Massimo Dutti a few years back, when mock necks were really ‘in’ and …

When The Rain Begins To Fall

When The Rain Begins To Fall

After rain comes sunshine, and after sunshine comes rain. The heat wave has come and passed, Summer storms have blessed our garden with some much needed rain and now… now we’re back to that awkward kind of in-between weather that Belgium is so well-known for. I’ve been living here for 26 years but I still haven’t mastered the art of dressing for this type of weather. It’s cool outside, but not cool enough to put on a …

Woman of the Woods

Woman of the Woods

Like most of Europe, Belgium has been dealing with a heatwave. Yet, here I am smiling and dancing outdoors in a wool cardigan and denim culottes. I guess that’s what you get when you choose to procrastinate blogging! In reality I haven’t left my house for anything but work and my smile has turned into sighs about the weather as most of my clothes have turned out useless in this heat. I keep wearing the same set of sleeveless dresses over …
