Pop It, Lock It, …

… polka dot it! Ah, Miley Cyrus songs are my favorites to reference to in blog post. Hers and Justin Biebers. If you doubt my level of adulthood now, you’re right to do so. On to what I really want to write today! There was no trend I loved as much as the polka dot trend this past summer. I’m always a bit hesitant to jump on a new trend and usually like to dip my toes in first. But this time things were different. If a piece of clothing had dots, I wanted it.  …

Return of the Mini

Return of the Mini

By now we all know that leopard print and western vibes are going to be huge this fall. Instagram is basically a zoo these days, haha! One of the trends that isn’t getting much attention just yet is the return of mini skirts and dresses. Very noughties and probably a trend that will pick up more once we start to head for the Holiday season (did I just dare go there?).  Mini skirts are very unlike me. I am aaaaall about midi-length and will rarely be seen wearing anything above the knee, but this cute little polka …

In The Rose Garden

In The Rose Garden

Yes my friends, that is one more pair of culottes. I didn’t shop for any other pants this summer, so I guess you’re stuck with photos of me in culottes for a while, haha. I will admit that I came this close to titling this post “I never promised you a rose garden”, but I didn’t so that deserves a mention. It would’ve been a fitting title though. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind with extra long days at work, trying to juggle a household with my social …

All-Black in Summer

All-Black in Summer

I have one simple rule for dressing during a heat wave: Avoid sleeves at all costs. It is no wonder then, that I have been living in this sleeveless top the past few weeks. Or wait, it actually is… . I wore this top more times this summer than I have in total all the years that I’ve owned it, haha. I bought it on a whim at Massimo Dutti a few years back, when mock necks were really ‘in’ and I thought this basic top was a good way to join in on the trend.&…

When The Rain Begins To Fall

When The Rain Begins To Fall

After rain comes sunshine, and after sunshine comes rain. The heat wave has come and passed, Summer storms have blessed our garden with some much needed rain and now… now we’re back to that awkward kind of in-between weather that Belgium is so well-known for. I’ve been living here for 26 years but I still haven’t mastered the art of dressing for this type of weather. It’s cool outside, but not cool enough to put on a coat. The sky is grey and the air humid, constantly threatening with rain, but not …

Woman of the Woods

Woman of the Woods

Like most of Europe, Belgium has been dealing with a heatwave. Yet, here I am smiling and dancing outdoors in a wool cardigan and denim culottes. I guess that’s what you get when you choose to procrastinate blogging! In reality I haven’t left my house for anything but work and my smile has turned into sighs about the weather as most of my clothes have turned out useless in this heat. I keep wearing the same set of sleeveless dresses over and over while praying for more Belgian weather instead of these desert-like temperatures. We made …
