A day in Veere

A day in Veere

Veere, not even that far from Yerseke, is a beautiful small town in Zealand. Typical Dutch houses adorn the cobbled streets, the Great Church and city hall tower above the trees and the many terraces offer ideal seats for people watching. And there’s plenty to see, as you’ll discover after the break point! We started our day on the lake. We (my mom, dad, sister and I) toured around the Veerse Meer, a lagoon separated from the North Sea by the Delta dam, and enjoyed the many beautiful views over the fields, campsites and other small …

The Other One

The Other One

dress: French Connection • sandals: Tamaris • croos-body bag: Kate Spade “Little Minka” Cobalt blue has been labelled my signature color by both my on- and offline friends. It an open secret that I love the bright blue shade to my wardrobe pieces. This summer you’ve seen me rock it more than once on the blog ( #1 • #2 • #3), and also in real life I am rarely spotted without my Ted Baker blazer these days. But no matter how great the love is, some days I have to cheat. Some days, I grab for “the other …

Oscar

top: H&M • skirt: H&M • ballet flats: Jonak Paris I’m a social worker. I know “how to handle things”, you know? Except for the two things in this world that I have never been able to cope with: cats and babies. I have the enviable super talent to make cats hiss and babies cry. Always. But something changed this weekend and it left me feeling a little upside down. I was playing fetch in the garden with Dasha, our German Sherphard, for some time already when I suddenly heard soft miauw-ing. …

Yerseke: Mussels, But Not From Brussels

Yerseke: Mussels, But Not From Brussels

On July 16th, The 2014 mussels season was festively opened in Yerseke, and guess who was there? Me, my family and an awful lot of camera crews. Because mussels are a big thing in La Belgique and The Netherlands, and if they are ready for the harvest you’ll know it as soon as you switch on the news. My mom absolutely hates them, but my dad and I love them and therefor a visit to “mussel capital” Yerseke had been on our to-do list for years. We begged and pleated …

The Crop Factor

The Crop Factor

cropped top: Zara • shorts: Zara • handbag: Carpisa • sandals: via Torfs My head is about to explode. I just finished my first study marathon of the re-examination season, and no matter what I try to type out, it would be a crappy post. All I could bore you with today are z-scores, standard deviation errors and whatnot, because that’s all that will be on my mind from now until September 5th. Sooooo…. I will pat my own shoulder today because I planned my outfit shoots in advance and have them nicely edited and ready …

This Summer, We’re Going Dutch!

This Summer, We’re Going Dutch!

I lovingly call her “The beast”. It’s big. Growing up, my grandparents had a caravan like the one in the photo in the Ardennes. 16 summers have I spent there, and I remember well all the friends I made on their campsite. We used to gather with the entire family and have big barbecues and go for long hikes in the endless surrounding woods. When I was 12, my parents bought a caravan of their own. A small one that could be hooked up with our car and for a year we traveled our tiny country, but eventually …
