Don’t Sugarcoat It

Don’t Sugarcoat It

While I had been shopping my wish-listed items for the upcoming fall season to my hearts content, Mother Nature decided it was time for a heat wave. Heat waves only mean two things to me: sunburns and sweat. Those two things happen to not look good in outfit photos, so that explains my absence from my blog and social media last week. I was also feeling a little under the weather (that’s punny) due to a little sickness, nervousness about new tasks at work and stress about a big decision we had to make which I&…

Fragrance Combining With Jo Malone

Fragrance Combining With Jo Malone

I’ve always been fine without perfume. While all of my friends were obsessing over Marc Jacob’s Daisy or Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, I was completely lost about how and why high school girls could drop €50 and more on a bottle of scented water. That was, my friends, until I walked into Senteurs D’Ailleurs in Brussels and got acquainted with Jo Malone. Jo  Malone is different. The British brand is well-known for bringing out scents that no one else would think of. Their scents often are created using contrasting or&…

6 Topshop Dresses You Need in Your Wardrobe

6 Topshop Dresses You Need in Your Wardrobe

01 Plisse tank dress (€46) / 02 Slouchy 90s dress (€50) / 03 Pleated lace dress (€117) / 04 Mini wrap dress (€50) / 05 Dotted Wrap Playsuit (€68) / 06 Asymmetric drape dress (€40) Topshop, I have a love-hate affair with it. Generally I’m not a fan of the price-quality ratio, but they still manage to draw me in with their always up-to-date collections. This time their collection of dresses seriously got me excited! Number 6 is my favorite from the bunch. I wish I had shoes to wear with it, because that dress is like heaven in polyester…

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

8:30 PM and I’m standing on the Roosevelt square with some good old Volbeat songs zooming in my ears, waiting for my bus to come. I think this is the first time I’m writing a blog post on the go! We went out to diner with work tonight and that means typing my blog post on my phone tonight. And I suck at typing on this thing. I’ve been talking about my wardrobe purge for weeks on end now, but I’m really starting to notice the effect. Unintentionally I’ve created almost …

A Zara Affair

A Zara Affair

Zara trousers have a tendency to break my heart. It all started with a floral pair two years ago and now I find myself heartbroken again over these navy trousers. Our story started out well, with these pants and I being inseparable when I bought them in May. I never knew I was missing elegant, office-prove navy trousers in my life. They quickly became best wardrobe friends with my Sperry tops-siders and looked mighty fine with most of my shirts and sweaters. I had tens of outfits in mind and fully intended to post those on the blog over the&…

The Tall Ships Race 2016

The Tall Ships Race 2016

A few weeks ago the Tall Ships Race took place in Antwerp and while the boats are well on their way to Lisbon by now, I still wanted to share a few of the snaps I took. My boyfriend and I met up with friends for dinner at Balls’n’Glory and took a detour to visit the TSR along the way. We saw the Tall Ships prepare for sail for the first time in 2010 and they left a might impression on us. This edition we arrived late after work and didn’t have time to climb …
