There is something about stripes and mustard

There is something about stripes and mustard

Vero Moda skirt, GAP tee, H&M shoes, Gifted necklace Hey look, my knees are purple!  In our Philosophy class we talked about the public space and how we don’t use it anymore. It has become a danger zone where we humans don’t like to be in, we try to cross it as invisible as possible. Our teacher encouraged us to do something unexpected, to stand out, to use the public space in a unique way. I put his words into …

Summer in March

Summer in March

Zara dress, Old Navy bag, Teva sandals, Twce as Nice earring This is not what I would normally wear on an average day in March. The weather was more than good the past weekend and the boyfriend and I enjoyed it to the fullest. We went on a stroll through the city and had ice creams, we accidentally ended up at the Semini celebration and a wedding. On our way home K took these photos of me while we were enjoying the soft breeze near&…

There is sunshine in these photos… and bare legs!

There is sunshine in these photos… and bare legs!

  Zara Dress and Cardigan, Mango Belt, H&M shoes, Vintage clutch I always admired April for the pretty glow she has in almost all of her photos. When I noticed the low, warm sun this particular late afternoon I knew I had my chance. I don’t have the best lens to capture the light perfectly but I consider this a start. And I’m loving it! The weather has been delightful the past week and I believe Spring is finally here …

Pop it, Lock it, Polkadot it

Pop it, Lock it, Polkadot it

I have a love/hate affair with this polkadot dress. It’s a tad bit short for me to wear as a dress and I better wear a bodycon skirt underneath if I don’t want any Marilyn moments. On the other hand it is really cute. While deciding if I was going to throw it out it suddenly hit me. “I can totally tuck it in my jeans!” I thought. I love how it looks and if I find a way to hem the …

Little Black Dress

Little Black Dress

Zara dress, Stradivarius belt, BOO! shoes, Twice as Nice earrings I’ve been eager to share this dress with you guys! I meant to wear it without tights but I couldn’t hold myself, haha. Actually, the boyfriend picked it out at Zara when we were in Koblenz. My boyfriend knows what works! It came with an ugly little bow belt that I immediately replaced with this cognac wrap belt from Stardivarius. This dress has everything I look for in a LBD: soft fabric, the …

Who said that redheads can’t wear red?

Our weeked in Germany ended in a minor key. Yesterday, both K and I woke up with the flu. I can’t remember the last time I felt this terrible! As soon as we got home I snuggled up in bed and slept for 18 hours on end. I already feel a lot better this morning, my bloodpressure is back up and I can eat a little too. I hope I  get better soon so I won’t have to miss to many classes …

Bad Hair

Bad Hair

Dry, frizzy, split ends and no real “do”. Oh boy, oh boy. I seriously need to get to the hairdresses ASAP! I can always feel when it’s time for a new cut. I’m not sure what to do with my bangs though… They are pretty long at the moment. I’ve had them sideways for years and I was thinking about trying something totally different this time. But I am SO scared! Do you guys have any ideas? What sort of …

Friends who are good photographers

Friends who are good photographers

As you are reading this I’m enjoying a hot cuppa coffee in a sweet little café in Lille, France with my mom and sister. We’re here for the day to shop the new collections and enjoy some time away from our hectic home. If I have to believe my mom, living with 4 teenagers can be hard… Wait, what does she mean by that?  Since the boyfriend doesn’t really like to be my photographer all the time, and I’m still not …

Comfy knits

Comfy knits

I bought this cosy sweaterdress long before winter hit. I fell in love with the big cowl and pretty tan colour. I meant to wear it during those horribly cold days when the temperatures would not even reach -10°C, but honstely, I had totally forgotten about it! I rediscovered it at the bottom of my closet a few days ago and decided to style it up and give it a chance on the blog. I sweat my ass off that morning.  Wearing: H&…

Spring Favorites

Spring Favorites

I skipped the (almost) obligated Valentines day post yesterday. I didn’t do anything romantic anyway, so you missed nothing! I spent the day alone in my study trying to figure out how those 4 big books about our Belgian social security system should be used. I also tried to find a place to stock siad books, but no luck on that. They’re on the floor as you read this. These books came in a big, heavy box and so I wasn’t able to …

-20°C

-20°C

Wearing: Zara coat, Mango dress, Veritas tights, Ollie and Nic bag This weekend  I found out that -20°C is no laugh. 2 warm duvets in flannel covers, a flannel PJ and a bunch of fleece blankets could not keep me warm last night. Where’s that boyfriend when you need him? About the outfit. This is my absolute fave dress that I own! You’ve seen it one the blog once before, last April. I bought it in London, with the rusty orange …
