• Putting up our Christmas tree 2015

    Part of moving in with my boyfriend means that this year we got to buy and decorate our very first Christmas tree! We both really love the coziness that comes with the Holidays, so you can probably imagine how excited we were to get started! The goal? A sparkly, but subtle Christmas tree in warm tones. I think we’ve succeeded! As my mom taught me: lights go in first! 4 strings each consisting of 7 strands of LED-lights ensure a true Christmas-y vibe. Tied together…

    5 hours in Amsterdam

    5 hours in Amsterdam

    On Monday I promised to share a mini-post about our mini-trip to Amsterdam. I got sick and spent most of Monday and Tuesday in bed fighting the flu. My fever is gone now and I’m left with a nasty cold, but that won’t stop me from returning to my blog. It’s been a while. K shared the Amsterdam lights festival on Facebook and asked me if I wanted to come with her. As if she really had to ask! …

    Chai lattes at home with Chalo

    Chai lattes at home with Chalo

    Until last Thursday I had never had a chai latte. I actually didn’t even really know what a chai latte was. Today, I am a convert. ‘Cause this stuff is good! And here’s a blog post to tell you why. Chai what? All I knew was that Chai Lattes are the new popular kid on the blog. I was curious, but I am also a creature of habit and kept to the coffee kind of latte. With vanilla syrup, because …

    Farewell Fall

    Farewell Fall

    The fields are covered in an ice cold white dust. The heat in the bus is on. It came ten minutes late, by the way. My feet freeze as soon as they touch the Roosevelt stones. Maybe All Stars weren’t the best choice this morning? I do not have a new winter coat and I’ve thrown out last years, so I’m covered in ten layers of sweaters. When I walk by my favorite coffee place I’m dying …

    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 …

    Fall Casual: The Little Black Dress (LBD)

    Fall Casual: The Little Black Dress (LBD)

    I bought this dress in Koblenz, only weeks after promising my mom that I would stop buying black clothes. I was 18 and had no idea what else to wear but black! I remember my mom got mad at me for spending money on another black dress, but years later it turns out those were the best €50 I ever spend. In the last 3,5 years, I wore this Zara dress at least once a month. During the winter times, it comes out to play…

    On knitwear and joining the Nike force

    This outfit contains two things I would never have worn before 2015: a plain knit sweater and trainers. But things change. I shared a picture of my & Other Stories shopping bag on Instagram and a few were curious to find out what was inside. This cozy grey sweater! I had a gift card  that I wanted to use for a pair of Chelsea boots, but when I received a press email to inform that the knitwear came in stock, I forgot all about that&…

    Fallen Leaves

    Fallen Leaves

    This seasons seventies trend is a bit much for me. Suede over-the-knee boots and button-front A-line mini skirts or not exactly my cup of tea. The general seventies vibe, however, I can do. You all know my wide legged jeans. I’ve  worn them and talked about them on the blog numerous times in the last years. This J.Crew top on the other hand, I haven’t shared enough of. It’s one of the most worn pieces in my …

    A Cozy Weekend With Koffie Kàn

    A Cozy Weekend With Koffie Kàn

    I’ve never really expressed it on the blog (I think), but I am a coffee girl. Most people in my family, actually. Ever since I was little my parents and grandparents would have coffee together after the Sunday family dinners so I learned young. In the beginning I only had eyes for the cookie jar in the middle of the table, but as I grew older my curiosity to try the black gold grew too. I must admit that I had to learn …

    Cozy Late Fall Must-Haves from C&A

    Cozy Late Fall Must-Haves 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 …
