If You Can’t Go To The Palm Trees…

If You Can’t Go To The Palm Trees…

Long tome no see here on The Ginger Diaries! I haven’t found my rhythm back since school went out and we moved house. Life is hectic at the moment and I had so much things to take care of that I let my blog out of my sight. My boyfriend and I took a break from on Friday and decided to soak up some sun and go out for dinner. Before we headed out we went location spotting for the blog in our …

You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

Being a kid from the early nineties, most of the current summer trends get the label “been there, done that”. I might not be ready to give some things another go, but there are some revivals that I have grown to appreciate. Bardot necklines are one of those. They are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I fell in l-o-v-e when I saw this top in a haul video on YouTube (guilty pleasure!). When it went on sale a couple …

Oh the Flossy, Flossy

Oh the Flossy, Flossy

“Wear them gold and diamonds rings. All them things don’t mean a thing. Chaperons and limousines. Shopping for expensive things.“. Next to anything from Toto or Journey, Fergie’s ‘Glamorous’ has been one of the songs that defines my relationship with K. We spill out Ludacrises lines at least once a week and if we’re playing the latest GTA we’ll have Non-Stop POP FM on until it comes by. We love it. And so …

Off-Day

Off-Day

Some days you just don’t feel it. You want to re-create that outfit you wore to class  that week and are pretty excited about sharing it, but then you can’t think of a location and you just try wherever you are and have no clue how to move your body into any decent positions. Why am I biting my finger! Then when you upload the photos to your computer you find out your photographer cut your feet off in about …

Jump For My Love

Jump For My Love

And just like that, here comes the sunshine. We’re enjoying 25°C this week and me and my new bikini are ready for some studying in the sun. Goes to show that you should be careful what you wish for when you write blog posts on bikini shopping! Anyway, to this look. I bought a romper and a jumpsuit last week. I’m still unsure whether that was a crazy act or a good wardrobe update. I do know that the jumpsuit …

Great Minds Dress Alike (with Dress Your Life)

Great Minds Dress Alike (with Dress Your Life)

When a friend wears the same sweater as you and is also a blogger, posts like this must happen. The sweater is not a recent find. I bought it while shopping for an outfit to wear for our New Years Eve party with friends. I wanted something comfortable and chic but not a dress, and this sweater ticked all the boxes. When I got home from my shopping trip I posted a picture of my new wardrobe addition on SnapChat and I received an …

Travel Outfit: Mosel Promenade, Cochem

Travel Outfit: Mosel Promenade, Cochem

These Nikes are the first pair of sneakers to grace my feet since the All Star revival that happened in my first year of High School. My All Stars were olive green with pastel pink lining and a year later I got gray ones that I still have. Now we are ten years later and the Air Max is back. As a child born in the early nineties, the return of mid length hair, cropped tops, rompers and Nikes causes me some nervousness. I remember&…

In Bloom (with Mijn Wonderkamer)

In Bloom (with Mijn Wonderkamer)

25°C, are you guys ready for this!? I know I am thanks to Mijn Wonderkamer. Those of you who guessed I kept the striped dress from my collaboration obviously won. This two-layered dress with golden straps is simply perfect for summer and I couldn’t resist. Even if I really wanted that blue playsuit to wear to the formal dance I’m attending next week. I added last years snake-print sandals and my over-sized bucket bag from H&M and wore …

From Ted To Toe

From Ted To Toe

It has been 11 weeks since I premiered this dress on Instagram and finally I got around shooting it. A lot of you were excited to see it in its full glory and I am excited to finally be able to show it off. I fell in love with this neoprene number in Dublin and finally scored it online at -60% off on boxing day. S to the core! When it first arrived I thought I’d be too prude to …

The Power Blazer

The Power Blazer

Just to proof that I do still wear something other than leggings and jersey tops. An actual, decent outfit that I wore for our ‘date day’ this weekend. We went on a long walk through my favorite neighborhoods in the city, het Eilandje, to dream of apartments we will never be able to afford. While we were out, we squeezed in a quick and fun shoot so I had something to break up all of my recent travel posts. The MAS museum is …

“A girl’s entitled to flaunt” – Sugababes, Red Dress

You know your life is boring when the most exciting moment of the day is when you ermagerdfinally find the full text version of an abstract that looks promising for your thesis. Really friends, that’s what my life is all about right now! I’m pretty much finished with two of the four main chapters in my literature summary and hope to finish the other two (which are already partially written out) by Monday so I can hand them in for feedback. …
