Don’t Sugarcoat It

Don’t Sugarcoat It

While I had been shopping my wish-listed items for the upcoming fall season to my hearts content, Mother Nature decided it was time for a heat wave. Heat waves only mean two things to me: sunburns and sweat. Those two things happen to not look good in outfit photos, so that explains my absence from my blog and social media last week. I was also feeling a little under the weather (that’s punny) due to a little sickness, nervousness about new tasks …

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

8:30 PM and I’m standing on the Roosevelt square with some good old Volbeat songs zooming in my ears, waiting for my bus to come. I think this is the first time I’m writing a blog post on the go! We went out to diner with work tonight and that means typing my blog post on my phone tonight. And I suck at typing on this thing. I’ve been talking about my wardrobe purge for weeks on end now, but …

A Zara Affair

A Zara Affair

Zara trousers have a tendency to break my heart. It all started with a floral pair two years ago and now I find myself heartbroken again over these navy trousers. Our story started out well, with these pants and I being inseparable when I bought them in May. I never knew I was missing elegant, office-prove navy trousers in my life. They quickly became best wardrobe friends with my Sperry tops-siders and looked mighty fine with most of my shirts and sweaters. I had tens&…

An Easy Weekend Look

An Easy Weekend Look

I’m writing this post quickly between dinner and laundry. I think my washing machine will only be a few more minutes so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. The days have been long and busy lately, with little time to sit down quietly and read blogs, keep up with YouTube or write my own blog posts. I feel like I’m losing my head in the disorderly mess that my life is right now. Fingers crossed I feel …

Little White Lace Dress

Little White Lace Dress

As much as I love a good (little) black dress or LBD, in summer it’s all about little white dresses. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love the way my hair looks against white, but I hate how it accentuates the blue and purple tones in my fair skin. My brother always makes fun of me when I’m wearing a white dress and even my mom makes one or two jokes about ghosts when she sees me coming. …

How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

Since the launch of Pokémon Go it has been easier than ever to convince my boyfriend to visit different locations and do shoots for the blog. They should have released the app five years ago! These photos were taken near the canal that runs through our town and that apparently houses water Pokémons and Weedles. The water tower a bit further down the road has turned into a Gym and someone placed a “Lure” on the local church so …

A Love For Pink and Grey

A Love For Pink and Grey

If you thought my new job had gotten the best of me, well, you’re pretty right. I’m not in for much activity after coming home and am usually fast asleep by 8:30pm. It’s not hard to choose between active thinking/writing or mindlessly watching OITNB in such a state. Blogging has been a bit of a task lately, but I have kept working hard behind the scenes. Exciting, but mostly long overdue changes are coming up and I can&…

Let Loose

Let Loose

Since starting my new job I’ve donated two garbage bags full of clothes and got rid of four pairs of worn out shoes. It’s fair to say that I was holding on to pieces of clothing that didn’t really fit me right anymore or that I had gotten tired of just for the sake of having something to wear. With no income for almost a year, my shopping sprees were limited and I only really bought things I really …

AD | My Skechers Performance Go Step Sneakers

AD | My Skechers Performance Go Step Sneakers

In my post about the Skechers store opening in Wijnegem I gave away that I didn’t leave the shop empty handed. It took me a while, but I finally found a moment to shoot my favorite outfit with my new Skechers Go Step sneakers! My sneakers are a lovely beige-white print on a lightweight mesh fabric, making them perfect for the warmer times ahead. I can wear them under dresses and skirts and add a cool-factor to my looks, without having sweaty feet …

A New Chapter

A New Chapter

This blog and its readers have been with me through many life changes. No less than 6 anniversaries with my boyfriend have been celebrated on The Ginger Diaries and our seventh is in just a few days. I’ve written about when we moved into our first apartment last July and recently shared an update on how things looked after nine months. My academic career has been well documented with posts about graduating high school, my first day in college, starting and ending my internships, …

Under The Blooming Trees

Under The Blooming Trees

Among the bluebells, under the blooming trees, … . It should be clear by now that I am not the most creative blogger when it comes to my post titles. I do however believe that my locations have been rather on point lately, haha. I’ve been wearing lots of soft grey this Spring and am pulling out my black blazer – that I have a love-hate relationship with – on most days too. My new New Balance sneakers are the pride of my feet, …
