Shopping my closet #3: Old favorites

Shopping my closet #3: Old favorites

cardigan: H&M • skirt: H&M • t-shirt: Only • tights: Veritas • boots: Footwork • glasses: Kinto   Short sleeves. Yes. Here in Belgium, we’re dreaming about Spring out loud. It’s been nice and warm outside the past few days, and today I even went to class without my winter coat, wearing cropped jeans and open shoes. Pure bliss. The mild temperatures allowed me to choose this 3/4-sleeved cardigan for my third shopping-my-closet outfit this weekend. I bought the cardigan several years ago, with a gift card that was nearing its expiration …

10 Questions & Answers (Liebster Award)

I’ve met a fair share of fellow ginger-haired bloggers since my first days on the blogging block. But other Nikkis? Not so much! When Nikki from Dream In Neon happened upon my space here on the web, she promptly nominated me for the Liebster award, because us Nikkis have to stick together. She asked me 10 questions, that I very willingly will answer below.  Which blogger do you admire the most? It’s always hard to pick just one, but I’ve loved Chronicles Of A Country Girl since …

Shopping my closet #2: Hot pink cardigan

top: Massimo Dutti • cardigan: Zara • pants: Zara • booties: via Spartoo.be • cross body bag: Kate Spade • Glasses: Kinto If we would be real life friends, and you’d rummage through my wardrobe like many of my girlfriends do, you’ll notice I have a seemingly endless collection of simple Zara cardigans.  I have them in every basic color, from black to white, and one in a striking hot pink. One day in late January, I remembered I still had a few euros left in my PayPal account after buying two Christmas presents …

A Weekend in Lisbon

A Weekend in Lisbon

The ice cold winds, constant grey skies and rain have pushed me to throw my posting schedule around. Posting a new outfit simply is impossible when you can’t be outside to shoot the photos. But for once, my empty concepts folder didn’t cause a panic. Last Wednesday my boyfriend and I boarded a plane to Portugals’ capital to re-energize after our January exams. I originally planned to share all about our mini-trip on Thursday, but I really didn’t mind editing these photos a little earlier. Flipping through them in my editor made me …

On why I don’t wear make-up

On why I don’t wear make-up

As this blog blog grew, so did the number of comments, and with that the amount of remarks about my make-upless appearance. Some comments were subtle or encouraging, others curious, but oftentimes these comments were rude, saying that my face could use some finery. I have sometimes answered these comments in the comment section, but I thought I’d write a post about it too. I don’t wear make-up because I am allergic …

shopping my closet #1: colored tights

dress and belt: Massimo Dutti • cardigan: Zara • tights: Veritas • heels: Boo Hey guys. So yeah, a week of silence. I was going to blog last Monday, but that was before I found out I blissfully forgot about the 90 extra pages I had to study before Fridays final exam. I panicked. And my panic mode was on ’till I closed the door of the examination room behind me. No more exams until June!  For February I wanted to do something fun with my outfits. I banned myself from the shops at the beginning of January, and …
