6 Topshop dresses you need in your wardrobe

6 Topshop dresses you need in your wardrobe

01 Plisse tank dress (€46) / 02 Slouchy 90s dress (€50) / 03 Pleated lace dress (€117) / 04 Mini wrap dress (€50) / 05 Dotted Wrap Playsuit (€68) / 06 Asymmetric drape dress (€40) Topshop, I have a love-hate affair with it. Generally I’m not a fan of the price-quality ratio, but they still manage to draw me in with their always up-to-date collections. This time their collection of dresses seriously got me excited! Number 6 is my favorite from the bunch. I wish…

Teva Original Universal sandals

Teva Original Universal sandals

Longtime readers of The Ginger Diaries will know that I have a thing for Teva. As well-known as they are for their comfort, as infamous they are for their looks. For many Teva Original Universal sandals are a horrid childhood fashion disaster they were forced to live through by their parents. And they still seem to blame them. When Teva launched their Original Summer campaign in honor of the Original sandal last year I was utterly excited to be a part of the Belgian league&…

My Furla Julia Mini-bag

My Furla Julia Mini-bag

I am the kind of girl that lusts after pretty things for a long time before I decided to make a purchase. Prove: I had been looking at Kate Spade and Michael Kors handbags for several years before I chose to treat myself to the Little Minka and Sutton models. Do not let the name “Little Minka” fool you. That Kate Spade is humongous! Because I was studying at uni at the time, I wanted my handbags to be big enough to fit my entire&…

Fitflop F-pop leather oxford shoes

Fitflop F-pop leather oxford shoes

A while ago I was introduced to the lovely PR team from FitFlop Benelux during an speed dating event for bloggers. If you don’t know what FitFlop is then you must have been living under a rock for the past decade. Launched in 2006, the brand has been known for ergonomic and ultra-comfortable designs that support your feet fully. My mother-in-law is a mega-fan and even my boyfriend owns a pair of their magical slides, but I must be honest and admit that the classic&…

Sweet Lemon mules for Spring

Sweet Lemon mules for Spring

Oh sweet goodness I did it again. This time with a little help from my friends though, as these elegant mules were a gift from Sweet Lemon. Sweet Lemon kindly asked me to make a small wishlist from their webshop and later sent me one pair as a surprise to style in future outfits. When the shoe box came I had no idea which pair I’d find inside, but to my excitement they were my favorites from the bunch! I already have a few …

The perfect black ankle boots

The perfect black ankle boots

My name is Nikki and I’m a shoe-addict. I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but lately I’ve been on a shoe-buying spree and added three new pairs to my wardrobe in just a few weeks. That’s more shoes than I bought in the whole year 2015. Shoes are not my thing (Well, were not my thing) and I’ve always been pretty much a basic bitch when it comes to footwear: a few pairs that go with everything. My silver …

My 6 favorite sneakers of the moment

My 6 favorite sneakers of the moment

It seems like I have a new annual thing going on. Around this time last year I injured my knee while running and this year I’m wobbling through life again with an injured knee and hip. If I continue on this way, I don’t want to know what state I’ll be in in ten years haha. The upside of the pain though is that it means I have a solid reason to buy an extra pair of sneakers. I’m not the …

Clio Goldbrenner

Having the house to myself a few days I thought I’d have plenty of time to prepare my Thursday post before I left for Barcelona. Wishful thinking. K left on a work trip Monday morning and he wouldn’t be himself if he hadn’t left behind a huge load of laundry (where did he hide all that stuff?!) and a week worth of dishes on his desk. Then I found a note on the kitchen table with all the errands he forgot to …

The perfect winter basics from Street One

The perfect winter basics from Street One

Street one? Not a store most fashionista’s include on their quest to shop the hottest key pieces of the season. I must admit that I too thought of the brand as a bit dull and too mature. All of that changed, however, when my search for an affordable Bernadette-style cardigan led me inside their Antwerp shop. After Instagramming my newest wardrobe addition, I also discovered Street One’s Instagram feed and learned they had a lot more in store than I ever knew. From …

Cozy late fall musthaves from C&A

Cozy late fall musthaves from C&A

C&A is one of those stores that I often pass. I used to shop there with my parents when I was little, then moved into my H&M and Zara phase and never really went back. In recent years, however, I discovered that C&A has the best collection of cozy cardigans and when a friend told me she was looking for one I advised her to go take a peek. She asked me to come with her after our coffee …
