The Prettiest Mules Under €50

The Prettiest Mules Under €50

Strange things have happened this weekend. I, master skeptic of all nineties trends, have bought a pair of culottes. Before you all go and think I bought a cutesy pastel colored pair with floral print: hold your horses. I have my limits. Like one would expect of a basic chick like myself, I chose basic black culottes avec front pleat (from H&M, only €45!). After shopping a bright pink blazer, candy pink sweater and even pastel things last month I thought it was about …

A little wish list for Spring

A little wish list for Spring

I’m done with dark colored clothes. I’m done with the static electricity that my wool knits cause when they rub against the polyester lining of my winter coat. I’m done with bomb cyclones and polar vortexes, however cool they may sound (pun intend). I never though I’d say this, but I am longing for the scorching 44°C we had in Sevilla last summer. I am that done with winter. A few days ago I found myself scrolling through the new arrivals …

LÕU.YETU x l’Occitane

If you look closely at my outfit photos you’ll notice that I’m wearing a small silver ring in almost all of the photos. I received it as a gift from my boyfriend when we were dating for 2,5 years. As soon as it slipped on my finger I knew the high days of my collection of fantasy rings were over. For 6 years, that small silver ring was the only one I liked to wear. Recently you can spot me with a different set of&…

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

On almost all of my city trips I travel with hand luggage only. Check-in luggage usually means extra costs, more waiting time at the airport, extra weight to carry,… . Just a whole lot of hassle that I can’t be bothered with! I’m currently using a very old Converse Bowling Bag as my carry-on bag. It’s big enough to keep an outfit or three, my camera gear and basic necessities. The back pocket of the bag is useful to store my passport and …

Meet ARKET, H&M’s Newest Brand

Meet ARKET, H&M’s Newest Brand

After H&M, COS, Weekday, Monki and & Other Stories the H&M group has launched a new brand and it is screaming my name. Described as a modern-day market, ARKET sells products for women, men, children and the home in minimalist-looking stores. The stores each have a Pinterest-worthy looking cafe to take a break from shopping and enjoy a good espresso. ARKET can’t be compared to our standard H&M. I feel like the designs are much more intricate and …

12 Reasons Why & Other Stories Is My Current Favorite Shop

Oh dear lord, I have a confession to make. I’ve been trying hard to save my pennies, but I fear I am about to sin. I can’t help it. I’m in love. I was out and about in the city a while ago and decided to kill some time in the shops. I was looking for the perfect white blouse to pair with my skirt from Comptoirs des Cottoniers (see last outfit post!) and my search led me into & Other stories. …

Kipling’s New Summer Collection Has Got Me Good.

Kipling’s New Summer Collection Has Got Me Good.

Who of you has childhood memories that involve Kipling? If you’re Belgian, chances are likely that you went to elementary school carrying a Kipling satchel or pencil case. And if you were like me, you had a satchel, pencil case and gym bag. Everything from Kipling came with a furry monkey keychain and they all had a name tag. If I remember things right, my three monkeys were all named Maurice haha. These things were cool in the years 2000, guys! Overall Kipling was known …

12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

01/ Long knitted cardicoat (€39.99) – I have a thing for extra long cardigans this fall and it’s bad. I want one in every typical fall color: Beige, burgundy, olive, grey, cream and everything inbetween! I’m not sure how this warm beige will work out with my skintone, but I’m definitely going to check for this gorgeous tan colored number next time I pass by my local H&M. 02/ Long cotton blouse (€24.99) – I strongly believe that you can never have enough white tops.…

Meet Cate! The Guess Cate Bag & Duifhuizen.nl Review

Meet Cate! The Guess Cate Bag & Duifhuizen.nl Review

My sister is the biggest Guess fan. Looking at her closet, my guess (now this…) is that she has about 50 handbags and I bet 49 of them are from Guess. While my sister is all over Guess, I have to be honest and tell you that I am not the biggest fan. I find that the brand in general doesn’t really match with my personality and other than the odd single piece here and there their collections have never really appealed to me. Things…
