• Pink Petals

    It’s no secret that I love a good white blouse. I was looking for an oversized linen shirt to wear in summer, because A) it protects me against sunburn while still being breezy and B) I figured my boyfriend wouldn’t appreciate it if I kept stealing his linen shirt all the time, haha. When I found this cute little number at H&M I simply had to have it. The lace trim is so cute! I like to wear it light and loose like I did…

    A Little Black Dress For Spring

    A Little Black Dress For Spring

    I don’t buy items on a whim very often. Usually when I see something I like, I will check back on it a few times before I actually make a purchase. My modus operandi doens’t always prevent bad buys, but it has kept me from buying things that I often really seem to want at first, but would probably forget about within a week. This dress, however, was purchased within 60 seconds. And I would have been even faster if I hadn’t secured …

    London photo diaries

    London photo diaries

    Now that the Royal Wedding is still hot and happening, I thought it was a good time to finally share my photos from London! You might spot the pretty fall foliage, which gives away that I visited London some months ago now. It was a glorious weekend in October, so we enjoyed nice long walks through South Kensington and the Kensington Gardens. We discovered some lovely breakfast and lunch spots and tried some of the best coffee bars around the Aldgate area. I spend about&…

    A daytrip to Sopot

    A daytrip to Sopot

    However beautiful the city of Gdańsk may be, after three days we had seen most of it and decided to escape the big city and head for the coast. The maritime resort of Sopot is a popular day trip from Gdańsk because it is close by and easy to reach by train. Sopot lies by the Baltic sea and is well known for its many luxurious hotels, spas and restaurants as well as the long wooden pier that stretches far into the salty …

    Pretty Periwinkle

    Pretty Periwinkle

    If you look closely at the photos you will see that the trees behind me are still bare. We made these photos on one of the very first warmer days of this year. I believe it was the first time I left the house without my winter coat in ages and it felt SO good. I wore my new sweater and white sneakers to celebrate the coming of the new season. You might remember the sweater from the Spring shopping wish list that I shared&…

    A Visit To Zwin Nature Park

    A Visit To Zwin Nature Park

    On a cold morning in February, my boyfriend an I decided to drive to the Belgian sea side for a day. We never go to the sea side. There’s nothing to do when it rains and it’s bustling with tourists as soon as the sun decides to peek from behind the clouds. Add to that the infamous Belgian traffic and you get a recipe for “nah, let’s just go somewhere else”. However, there’s a nature reserve near Knokke that I had …

    The Prettiest Mules Under €50

    The Prettiest Mules Under €50

    Strange things have happened this weekend. I, master skeptic of all nineties trends, have bought a pair of culottes. Before you all go and think I bought a cutesy pastel colored pair with floral print: hold your horses. I have my limits. Like one would expect of a basic chick like myself, I chose basic black culottes avec front pleat (from H&M, only €45!). After shopping a bright pink blazer, candy pink sweater and even pastel things last month I thought it was about …

    If the shoe fits, wear it

    If the shoe fits, wear it

    It’s currently 19:45 and it’s still light outside. The light is as bright as it would be on an average afternoon in the middle of Winter. In early Spring I always realize just how weak the sun actually is in the Winter. This year for the first time I’ve felt the effect of daylight savings. My mood is lifted and I’m ready for new things. I’ve also been enjoying the extra daylight to the fullest with trips to the local ice …

    Gdańsk and I, A Love Story

    Gdańsk and I, A Love Story

    I can hear you going “G-what“? Gdańsk is a harbor city the North of Poland and a relatively new tourist destination. Most people who pass through Poland will stop at Warsaw or Krakow and an odd few visit Poznan as well. Gdańsk is still a bit the odd man out. The city is unknown to many Millenials, which is a sad given since Gdańsk was the scene of an enormous social revolution that has set the tone for modern day living in …

    Light Check Blazer for Spring

    Light Check Blazer for Spring

    These photos might not show it well, but Spring has arrived! I’m fully enjoying the first signs of the new season. Daffodils are popping up everywhere, squirrels are running around our yard and doves are busy building nests in the trees surrounding our house. I love feeling the warmer breeze when I step outside in the morning and the scent freshly mowed lawns when I return home from work. Spring is heavenly! With the changing seasons also comes a change in my wardrobe. I …

    The Best Cardigan Outfit

    The Best Cardigan Outfit

    Oh, hello there! Long time no see, my friends! I’ve been travelling a lot the past few weeks and have taken a break from social media, so I haven’t been online very much. While I was away I rediscovered the wonderful world of Netflix and actually managed to do some chores around the house. Now that my mind has calmed down, I feel like it’s time to kick some life back into this blog. I’m starting back up with an easy …
