• A Pop of Green

    When I was still in school H&M was my go-to for knitwear. They did and still do the best sweaters, jumpers and cardigans in the €20-40 price category. The secret with H&M is to hit the shop early. Their earliest fall pieces are their absolute best and by shopping my sweaters while it wasn’t exactly sweater weather just yet, I always managed to find the ones I wanted still available in my my size. Every summer I’d set aside some money so I’d be ready when they dropped their fall collection. And I was never disappointed. It’s been three years…

    Wide Leg Cropped Pants

    Guys, these must be my favorite blog photos everrrrr. And that says something, considering that I’ve been doing this since 2009 (how has it been 9 years!?). My friend Melissa has recently started doing hair & make-up. As she’s new on the mua scene she’s working a lot to create her portfolio and asked me to model for her!  Now, you all know that I don’t wear make-up and the fanciest thing I’ve ever done with my hair on the blog was this. If that doesn’t prove enough that God wasn’t handing out the ability to be a hair magician on…

    Apple Picking in Haspengouw

    According to Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, there are currently 11.376.070 people living on the 30.528 KM² piece of land known as Belgium. Said little piece of land is divided into 10 provinces. And today I am taking you on a day trip to my favorite one: Limburg! Or as we Antwerpians like to call it “The Limburg”. I am imagining the Limburgers reading this collectively clicking away from my blog now. More specifically I’m taking you along on a field trip to the beautiful region of Haspengouw. Haspengouw is best known for its fruit farms, country roads and castles. While…

    Pop It, Lock It, …

    … polka dot it! Ah, Miley Cyrus songs are my favorites to reference to in blog post. Hers and Justin Biebers. If you doubt my level of adulthood now, you’re right to do so. On to what I really want to write today! There was no trend I loved as much as the polka dot trend this past summer. I’m always a bit hesitant to jump on a new trend and usually like to dip my toes in first. But this time things were different. If a piece of clothing had dots, I wanted it.  It started with polka dot…

    Return of the Mini

    By now we all know that leopard print and western vibes are going to be huge this fall. Instagram is basically a zoo these days, haha! One of the trends that isn’t getting much attention just yet is the return of mini skirts and dresses. Very noughties and probably a trend that will pick up more once we start to head for the Holiday season (did I just dare go there?).  Mini skirts are very unlike me. I am aaaaall about midi-length and will rarely be seen wearing anything above the knee, but this cute little polka dot skirt totally…

    In The Rose Garden

    Yes my friends, that is one more pair of culottes. I didn’t shop for any other pants this summer, so I guess you’re stuck with photos of me in culottes for a while, haha. I will admit that I came this close to titling this post “I never promised you a rose garden”, but I didn’t so that deserves a mention. It would’ve been a fitting title though. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind with extra long days at work, trying to juggle a household with my social life and battling a nasty summer cold all at the…
