AD | Get On Your Dr. Martens Boots!

Boy, oh boy. I’m trying to collect all of my thoughts and stories about Dr. Martens and put them into one coherent story, but nothing I write tonight feels good. It’s not because I have nothing to say about my 1460’s. There are plenty of story lines I could go for! I could tell you about how I always thought that most people look like Tom Thumb in the Ogre’s seven-league boots. Or I could let you in on the very profound discussion I had with a friend about the brand just a …

One of the oldest memories I have about shopping is from the day my parents gave me a little pink bottle of Zodiac perfume at Pimkie in the Wijnegem shopping center. I must have been around 9 or 10, but I can still perfectly imagine the Taurus scent today. This little pink bottle was the only thing I ever bought at Pimkie until recently. 15 years wiser and with Jo Malone’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt as my mature signature scent, I stepped inside the store after reading about their home collection. Guys, no other fashion store has ever done…

My “It” Sweater of the Season

My “It” Sweater of the Season

Oversized? Check! off-white? Check! Cable knit? Check! Say hello to this years most wanted knit sweater! The best part? It’s only €40! There’s so much I could say about this sweater, but really social media has done all the talking for me. I’ve seen this sweater on Pinterest and Instagram more than avocado’s and colorful vegan breakfast bowls combined (and that means something). The combinations people have come up with are also endless. I personally love to wear it most with leggings and my Chelsea boots, but for this shoot I wanted …

My Outfit for New Years Eve 2017

My Outfit for New Years Eve 2017

Before we really kick off a month full of travel posts, I wanted to share one of my Holiday outfits with you. I know… I know… I am late as always. Blogging + renovating + full time job + my planning skills = disaster. This was supposed to be my NYE outfit, but eventually I swapped for comfy trousers and a loose cardigan that night. Comfort above all as we had a real food fest with friends and hung on the couch for hours afterwards! Instead I wore my glitter-y skirt to stand on a slippery bridge over troubled water…

Floral in Winter, Groundbreaking!

Floral in Winter, Groundbreaking!

It’s not a secret that I love travelling, a good cup of jo and playing around with clothes on a daily basis. What you might not know about me is that I also really love gardening. I can spend hours in the local garden center, mixing and matching plants for that perfectly styled border or planter. When we travel we always, always, always go for a walk in the botanical garden. In Spring I try to have fresh cut flowers in the house somewhere (white tulips are my favorite). And my living room is slowly but surely turning …

The One Coat I Wish I Owned Sooner

The One Coat I Wish I Owned Sooner

When I first started The Ginger Diaries I used it as a way to document my search for “a more colorful life one dress at the time”. It was the time where having a catch phrase for you style blog was still cool and happening, okay? My wardrobe was all black and blue at the time and I wanted a change. Almost ten years down the road and it seems I’ve walked a full circle. I’ve been bringing nothing but black, white and grey items into my closet lately and while my love for …
