Shopping my closet #3: Old favorites

Shopping my closet #3: Old favorites

cardigan: H&M • skirt: H&M • t-shirt: Only • tights: Veritas • boots: Footwork • glasses: Kinto   Short sleeves. Yes. Here in Belgium, we’re dreaming about Spring out loud. It’s been nice and warm outside the past few days, and today I even went to class without my winter coat, wearing cropped jeans and open shoes. Pure bliss. The mild temperatures allowed me to choose this 3/4-sleeved cardigan for my third shopping-my-closet outfit this weekend. I bought the cardigan several years ago, with a gift card that was nearing its expiration …

Shopping my closet #2: Hot pink cardigan

Shopping my closet #2: Hot pink cardigan

top: Massimo Dutti • cardigan: Zara • pants: Zara • booties: via Spartoo.be • cross body bag: Kate Spade • Glasses: Kinto If we would be real life friends, and you’d rummage through my wardrobe like many of my girlfriends do, you’ll notice I have a seemingly endless collection of simple Zara cardigans.  I have them in every basic color, from black to white, and one in a striking hot pink. One day in late January, I remembered I still had a few euros left in my PayPal account after buying two Christmas presents …

On why I don’t wear make-up

On why I don’t wear make-up

I moderate my comments to make sure I read them all and so that I can quickly find your questions and answer them. As this blog blog grew, so did the number of comments, and with that the amount of remarks about my make-upless appearance. Some comments were subtle or encouraging, others curious, but oftentimes these comments were rude, saying that my face could use some finery. I have sometimes answered these comments in the comment section, but I thought I’d write a post about it too. I don’t wear make-up because I am allergic …

shopping my closet #1: colored tights

dress and belt: Massimo Dutti • cardigan: Zara • tights: Veritas • heels: Boo Hey guys. So yeah, a week of silence. I was going to blog last Monday, but that was before I found out I blissfully forgot about the 90 extra pages I had to study before Fridays final exam. I panicked. And my panic mode was on ’till I closed the door of the examination room behind me. No more exams until June!  For February I wanted to do something fun with my outfits. I banned myself from the shops at the beginning of January, and …

sweater: J.Crew • denim shirt: American Eagle Outfitters • skirt: Ichi via Zalando • flats: Anne Klein You were not intended to see these photos. Ever. Never ever. But exams tend to mess with people’s schedules and all my photographers are either in Leuven or Antwerp, putting their best foot forward and nailing those inhumane questionnaires. And I’m at home. Trying to memorize 400 PowerPoint-slides full terminology that I strongly suspect my professor invented on scene. Due to the circumstances I had to dive into my image archives and pull out a series of photos I …

Pantone Mug Shots

My dad is occupying the couch, sleep-watching Maid in Manhattan, so I thought I’d sit down and have a small one-way conversation with you guys in the meanwhile. Life has been hec-tic. I have two exams behind me and still two in the offing, so I have been commuting between my home, my city apartment and two different college campus’ this week. My nose has constantly been in the books, and my study breaks include trips to the local supermarket to stock up on blue pens and yellow markers. I wouldn’t want to fall …
