My Favorite Spring Jacket

My Favorite Spring Jacket

This jacket is tha bomb diggity. It’s half bomber, half parka and perfectly light-weight. The collar is beautifully embellished, but forgot to make a close-up shot to show you the amazing details. This jacket is the perfect throw-on piece to finish of a basic look and can be worn is so many different outfit that I’m sure you’ll be seeing it loads on my blog! I’ve never been happier that I shot a few of my favorite …

Among the Blooming Bluebells

Among the Blooming Bluebells

Some people have a travel bucket list, but I have a shoot location bucket list too (and, well, one with coffee bars). Am I weird for that? On the location list for Spring are the blossoms in Haspengouw (see an old shoot we did there here), the blossoms in Zeeland, the yellow flower fields in the Liereman reservate, the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens and the Hallerbos near Brussels. My friend K, who will be very pleased to read she has been included in yet another blog&…

Hello There, Sunshine!

Hello There, Sunshine!

The mid-day sun is far from ideal for taking outfit photo’s, but when the boyfriend is in a good mood I have to jump at the chance! We just came back from Ikea with the last bits and pieces for our apartment when I remembered the beguinage in Hoogstraten would be a perfect location to shoot my outfit of the day. Spring had beautifully sprung as the daffodils were in full bloom, making a pretty backdrop for my basic look. Simple jeans, white …

The Odd One Out

The Odd One Out

The rain is clattering against the windows and I have the lights on inside because it’s almost too dark to see without. We might have felt the first signs of Spring this weekend, the April Showers haven’t been too long in coming. My friend S came by our apartment for the first time on Friday and brought me gorgeous Spring Snowflakes (Leucojum) in a fine white flower pot. On our windowsill sit two more pots with daffodils, who’s beauty …

Jeans + Blazer

Jeans + Blazer

Howdy mates! K has been playing Irish shanty’s all morning so please excuse me if I write like a pirate today. I should not have dug up Assassin’s Creed during our Spring clean this weekend. After living together for little over half a year, we decided to go through every drawer and every closet to see which items we haven’t used in all this time. We collected a lot of random bits to donate to our local second hand …

The Silver Lining

The Silver Lining

I believe it was the year 2000. I was eight. Or about to turn eight. ‘Freestyler’ from the Bombfunk MC’s was my favorite song, I knew the first 151 Pokémons by heart and platform shoes were the bomb diggity. I remember that I had a pair. They were baby blue, buffalo-style and horrible, but I loved them. I went to high school in 2004 and quickly learned that platforms had become an absolute no-go when someone a few years older pointed at …

Thrills & frills

Thrills & frills

I am a little lost for words today, which is a shame, because I absolutely love the photos my friend K made of me last week and they deserve a good post. K helped me out with my shoot for SKM and was up for a second round with my actual outfit of that day afterwards. Not very obvious, considering it was nearly freezing and very windy outside. As a thank you, I treated her to hot chocolate at Broer Bretel to warm up …

My new wardrobe staples from SKM

My new wardrobe staples from SKM

You might have seen the hints I’ve shared on my Instagram the past week, but I have an exciting collaboration with SKM, a well-known Belgian multi-brand fashion store. Together with a few others, I was invited to take a peek at the renewed store in Aartselaar and discover the new brands while sipping cava. Among the newcomers was Liu Jo, an Italian fashion brand that is known for it’s elegant and sophisticated designs in sometimes extravagant colors and prints. Those who …

The elements

Look who’s here. I took an unintended month-long break from The Ginger Diaries, but I come back bearing good news. I graduated! I remember the post I wrote about my first day at uni like I wrote it only moments ago. The past 2,5 years have flown by. How sad I felt after my first day (I didn’t have any friends and felt completely out of place at that time), I’m much more sad now knowing how amazing these last …

Oversized

Oversized

Let’s kick off the new year with a laid-back attitude. After days of dressing up for family occasions, I thought I’d go for relaxed looks. Besides, There’s no need to wear skinny jeans and a nice top, when I’m spending 90% of my days behind my computer filling out job applications. The other 10% is spent watching Netflix’s “Making A Murder”. I don’t think I’ve ever had more WTF-moments in one …

The Classics

The Classics

The gifts are unwrapped, the family dinners eaten and the gourmet set has been dusted off for Thursday night. Everything feels like winter, the only thing missing is the cold. It’s been unusually warm (like in many places) so when we went for a walk after Christmas I was perfectly fine in a blazer and my converse sneakers (without socks!). I switched the sneakers for my trusty black heels before we went out for a coffee and to shoot my outfit. It’…
