ONLINE BA&SH ALERT!


Yeehaa! I've got some good news for all of us, my friends. Last week I went to Maasmechelen Village for the Denim Festival with Belmodo and of course we did some good shopping. My readers and I attacked the Ba&sh outlet store, where I caved for a beautiful, chic and sexy jumpsuit. I have never owned a decent jumpsuit before and I felt that the time was finally right to invest in this classic piece. After trying on different sizes I eventually went home with a size 3, creating a very casual, loose effect. Love at first sight, guys! <3

After visiting the Ba&sh outlet I really wanted to check out the new collection as well! The good thing here is that we do not even have to get out of our couch to actually see all of the goodness! That is riiiiiight: the Ba&sh website/webshop has just opened its cyber doors! The E-shop is ready to serve us in French, English and Dutch and offers a special personal shopper tool! More advantages of the new website are that we receive early sale notices, can check the availability of the pieces in shops (nice if you want to try something on after all), get free shipping to a store and can settle returns and exchanges in relay points or by appointment. Sounds good right?

To close off this post, I have selected three beautiful alternatives to my own jumpsuit, which is unfortunately from last season. How tempting is that drop-dead gorgeous longsleeve one with v-neck and open back? Agree? Have you shopped at Ba&sh before, by the way? If you're loving the brand too, stay tuned for a cool collaboration in a few weeks in which I'll share my favourite pieces and more! See you guys laterrrrr!

NOT A MORNING PERSON

_MG_7817

This greasy-haired, tired-faced and utterly busy Sméagol barely survived the weekend, as the time unfortunately has come to, on top of every other day of the week, sacrifice my Saturdays as well to work for university. Oh, hello bachelor paper! I'm still doing all of my research but some of my classmates have already started writing, which scares the fuck out of me. Let's say I'm keeping up on my own pace and will hopefully have some magic moments of inspiration when I start putting things down in words. How wonderful life iiiiissss.... Sorry for that Elton John-thingie there.

In any case, my usual boring Saturday activities involving taking care of a household and cleaning and stuff (ew) are being transferred to Sunday, which leaves me zero days off! I'm counting down to July, guys... If only I were a morning person (my cup kinda gave it away) I would get a hella lot more done in a day. Luckily I can always find short moments in between classes or meetings to zone out a bit and enjoy the early spring weather with a cup of coffee.

Featured in todays in-between-outfit: my gorgeous Muse tee (YAY! Don't judge) by Sincerely Jules that I purchased a while ago, a pretty awesome fluffy cardigan by & Other Stories that I picked up during the store opening in Ghent two weeks ago and the cutest hobo bag by H&M that I will probably carry around all summer.

Pharrel Williams x Adidas c/o sneakers via MONARSEE YOU IN VENICE c/o customized denim

Pop it, pop it real good! I have been doubting about purchasing a pair of Adidas Superstar sneakers for some time now and the decision just got A LOT more difficult. Why? My favourite urban hiphop dude Pharrell Williams is about to launch an incredible new Superstar collection with my favourite urban shoe brand! The reissued version of this iconic sneaker is available in a dazzling 50 (!) different colours, which you can all see below.

OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE, INTO THE AWESOME ZONE



Me wearing these real cool pants is QUITE rare, guys. One year ago, when shopping, I would never, ever, ever have even touched these kind of trousers, because my ass looked fat in them. Wait, fat? I obviously just mean that they make my apple-shaped bottom look bigger than it is. Maybe you can relate to this, sooooo yup, even I have these feelings. It's quite sensitive to talk about the fact that I have been very body-conscious for the past few years, especially since I work as a model. The label model apparently equals flawlessness, invulnerability and confidence.

PERFORATED

_MG_8243

Say yes to the bag! Last week I attended the & Other Stories opening in Ghent (such a gorgeous shopping space!), where I bumped into the beautiful Clare Vivier x & Other Stories collection. This neon orange-y perforated piece with matching tassel (not pictured here) and navy handles immediately caught my eye, and hasn't left my arm since! The unusual colour combination, unique texture and very convenient size turn this bag into something really fresh and interesting to me. I know, I know; "fresh" might not be appropriate here since neon has had its moment a year or three ago, but for some reason this strong orange version really appealed to me. What do you think? Would you go for a hint of neon again this summer? The full outfit will be up soon! xx
