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 who cares? All of that changed when I was introduced to up and coming food …

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 for a hot chocolate and warmth. I can’t feel my feet by the …

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 knew. From fashionable jogging bottoms to a gorgeous beige fall coat, I’ve been …

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 a weekly basis. My friends in uni will agree: this dress gets a lot…

On knitwear and joining the Nike force

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 plan. I went to the store to look for a certain cream white sweater I&…
