• 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 on my blog a few months ago. It was love at first sight with this…

    A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

    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 been wanting to visit for many years. Following the Cabin Trail The Zwin was spans 150 hectares and has…

    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 time I pulled myself back together and bought more closet workhorses to help combine my new spring-summer…

    Why I Love My Veja Esplar Sneakers

    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 cream shop and outfit shoots past 6 PM. Despite all of the lovely things that have been happening I’ve…

    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 Europe. I’m not a history teacher, so I’m going to spare you the lessons about occupation and liberation…

    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 have already shopped a few new pieces, but I’ve also taken my favorite pieces from previous…
