When The Rain Begins To Fall

When The Rain Begins To Fall

After rain comes sunshine, and after sunshine comes rain. The heat wave has come and passed, Summer storms have blessed our garden with some much needed rain and now… now we’re back to that awkward kind of in-between weather that Belgium is so well-known for. I’ve been living here for 26 years but I still haven’t mastered the art of dressing for this type of weather. It’s cool outside, but not cool enough to put on a coat. The sky is grey and the air humid, constantly threatening with rain, but not …

Woman of the Woods

Like most of Europe, Belgium has been dealing with a heatwave. Yet, here I am smiling and dancing outdoors in a wool cardigan and denim culottes. I guess that’s what you get when you choose to procrastinate blogging! In reality I haven’t left my house for anything but work and my smile has turned into sighs about the weather as most of my clothes have turned out useless in this heat. I keep wearing the same set of sleeveless dresses over and over while praying for more Belgian weather instead of these desert-like temperatures. We made …

Crazy For Culottes

Crazy For Culottes

Last year I took a vow to never wear culottes… and just about 365 days later I am the proud owner of 4 pairs. F-O-U-R! There are so many cute culottes out there this year, but the first pair I bought was a solid black one from H&M. Since I was just dipping my toes into culottes I thought a good basic and affordable pair would be the best way to test if the trend was something for me. I chose this specific pair because they have a classic pleat in the front and have a nice high waist. …

Pink Petals

It’s no secret that I love a good white blouse. I was looking for an oversized linen shirt to wear in summer, because A) it protects me against sunburn while still being breezy and B) I figured my boyfriend wouldn’t appreciate it if I kept stealing his linen shirt all the time, haha. When I found this cute little number at H&M I simply had to have it. The lace trim is so cute! I like to wear it light and loose like I did on the day we made these photos, but I …

A Little Black Dress For Spring

A Little Black Dress For Spring

I don’t buy items on a whim very often. Usually when I see something I like, I will check back on it a few times before I actually make a purchase. My modus operandi doens’t always prevent bad buys, but it has kept me from buying things that I often really seem to want at first, but would probably forget about within a week. This dress, however, was purchased within 60 seconds. And I would have been even faster if I hadn’t secured my online banking app so well, haha. It truly was love at …

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&…
