THE BAG DRESS

unnamed-8

Whoppa, change of scenery! Since I got back to normal and rainy life in Antwerp after my little getaway to Marrakech I documented loads of outfits that I still need to show you. One of those being this ensemble that I put on on a cloudy Saturday afternoon spent at the gym and one of my favourite lunch places (hi Tinsel) with my friend Lisa! My favourite way to spend the weekend is probably indulging on coffee with friends living nearby. So all of you who don't... Get your ass over to Antwerp! Yes, I'm most definitely talking to you, Robin.

On to the outfit then! On Valentine's Day I received a free shipping + 14% off voucher from Monki, a brand that I used to be completely in love with but then kind of forgot about. I clicked through and started browsing the new collection, which resulted in me drooling over a huge, shapeless Vivianne dress that was in all ways very man-repelling and non-sexy. Robin carefully told me it was a "bag dress" (that's what good friends are supposed to do), but I decided against her advice and ordered it anyway. The dress arrived only a few days after and I LOVED IT. Yes, it was huge and shapeless and everything I had imagined it to be, but it was also extremely cool and it looked great in combination with most of my wardrobe! For the ones interested: I'm wearing an S (I normally have M in everything) and am 1m77. I think this will be probably a case of extreme love or hate, but let me know what you think! Love/hate?

WINTER SUN

_MG_4919

Ehh no, I did not suddenly transport myself to some exotic country with temperatures going through the roof. These are my last set of photos from my trip to Marrakech in the beginning of February! That's right, the last sunny summer pictures before you see me wrapped up in four layers of cashmere again. And don't forget the umbrella.

How come us bloggers (or is it just me?) always manage to wander off topic to nag about the weather? Sorry for that - let's talk about this sunny day instead! On our very last day in Marrakech the sun decided to come out and surprise us with a smashing 20°. That IS pretty warm, when you compare it to the 14° we sadly had all week. We cancelled our semi-cultural plans to spend our last few hours on the roof terrace. All settled down with a book, a cup of obligatory mint tea, some sunscreen and my beloved H&M shirt: all I need. You can't imagine how happy I was to dig this beauty up from the enormous sales pile back in January! Let's forget about the fact that the label says size 42, shall we. Pielaun likes it oversized. And it is EXACTLY what I'd like to wear on this dreary Tuesday...

MY NEW NIGHT REPAIR SERUM AND 5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED IT TOO

_MG_7143

Hi beauty lovers! As you have seen in my Estée Lauder video I always end my days with a short moment for myself. It might be reading a book, answering questions in my 5 Year Question Diary, quickly rearranging my closet or sending out a last Snapchat picture. All of this is perpetually preceded by my brand new night repair ritual!

TRAVEL: VISIT THE OURIKA VALLEY

Since my Marrakech diary was so bulky already, I decided to share these photos on another moment, being today! As I have already told you, we booked a private tour with a local driver to discover the Atlas Mountains nearby Marrakech.

Excuse me my short post after my last more elaborate one! Understanding from your numerous comments I could see that you really liked my photo diary and personal experiences on Marrakech, right? Well, the story doesn't end here! I still have a few looks to share and of course have to show you our trip to the Atlas Mountains.
