Oh oh, September! One of my favourite months of the year (indian suuuummer!) is slowly coming to an end and transitioning into real Autumn. These days are perfect for baring your legs and covering up your upper body in a light knit or a blazer. In this case I chose for a knit bomber by Hush, which is a real cool interpretation of the classic bomber jacket. Combined with other classic pieces like ripped denim shorts and my beloved Balenciaga bag this outfit works great for an off-day that mainly exists of answering emails, doing groceries and going to the gym. I know, I make it seem like I'm answering emails at literally every hour of the day, but it surely does feel so to me! Luckily this week brings some fun immersion for my occupied brain: tonight I'm off to Afrodite's shoe launch at Sacha, tomorrow evening (after my first day at uni...) it's time for Pharrell Williams in concert and the day after my dear friend and great make-up artist Sabine finally launches her own beauty book. Yep, it's definitely going to be an epic week!

7 DAYS, 7 OUTFITS

MONDAY - Long time no see, 7 days 7 outfits! I thought it would be fun to capture my outfits again for an entire week, so you can see what I wear on a daily basis. Last week was LOADS of fun, so I grabbed this opportunity to share those looks ├ánd stories. Monday was a behind the scenes business day, which included doing some administration work, catching up with my ever stuffed inbox, editing photos, preparing meetings and doing some windowshopping (I call this "trendspotting"). On days like these I make sure that everything behind the blog goes smooth, and this of course calls for a comfortable outfit. This lovely in between weather gives me the opportunity to pull out my beloved denim shorts and Birkenstocks, while staying warm in a light knit and a blazer.

TUESDAY - Okay, Tuesday was probably the most boring day of the week. Apart from running some errands, catching up with more emails, writing blog posts and paying the famz a visit I didn't do anything exciting. I chose for the same pair of denim shorts (YES, I SOMETIMES WEAR MY CLOTHES MORE THAN ONCE) and added my comfiest pair of shoes and my beloved Zara knit. More of this perfect weather and comfy clothes, please.

WEDNESDAY - This day was for more family visits and a fun business meeting! I wore a new pair of pleather leggings in the most beautiful burgundy colour — such a great catch for only €19,99 — and combined them with my oversized peach COS knit. This colour combo that is apparently really hot right now, and I'm definitely jumping on the bandwagon! The soft pink is really refreshing next to the autumny burgundy shade, which is the perfect way to extend summer just a little bit longer. Let's not talk about the gorgeous leather loafers I got last year in London and that are STILL giving me blisters. Such a sad story.

THURSDAY - You've seen my Thursday looks before in this and this post, but of course I had to add them to my week overview. After a slow start of the day (guess what: more emails!) I met up with buddy Elien for a quick lunch and an outfit shoot, after which we headed over to the LEE event I hosted in the evening. My boyfriend jeans and flat Converses had to make room for my a tight-fitting skirt and heeled ankle boots — which actually turned out to be the perfect choice for standing up and walking around for a couple of hours in a comfy way.

FRIDAY - I started my weekend on Friday already by sleeping late and reading a book in the morning! In the afternoon I met up with my friend Lisa for an intense gym session, after which we immediately compensated our burned calories by having coffee and cheesecake and accidentally ending up in an Italian restaurant in the evening. After the quick pasta + wine meeting I went to a double birthday party with some of my oldest friends, which of course ended up in a lovely evening! I wore two new favourites that day: a coated green LEE jeans that I picked up the night before and a the most comfy nude boyfriend cashmere jumper by Hush. (So sorry for the COMFY overuse again!)

SATURDAY - This was by far the busiest but loveliest day of the week! I got up early to gather my clothes and accessories because in the afternoon it was time again for our annual bloggers closet sale at Antwerp Fashion Festival. This time we did an outdoor edition and luckily the weather gods blessed us with hot temperatures and sunshine! By having our racks out on the streets we attracted way more coincidental passengers and interested shoppers, which made it probably our most successful edition yet. At 6 I had to run home to get changed and get my ass over to the Pinko store for the Pinko Ladies Night you read about here. Together with Ruth I had so much fun to host the night, drink cocktails and browse through the new collection. As I told you in my last post, you can now shop the entire collection online

SUNDAY - Sundays are for relaxing, that's why my girlfriends and I voluntarily spent our day in between screaming children and horribly long queues. That's right, we went to an attraction park! I was still extremely tired from the rough day before, but one of us had an even worse day: try going in a rollercoaster while being hangover. Luckily I only needed some extra coffee (ok, and ice cream) to wake me up and feel like a kid again. Ok guys, I'm very curious about your favourite outfit of the week! Let me know, and have a great relaxed Sunday yourselves xx

PINKO LADIES NIGHT

20140913-DSC_8511

Such FUN events passing by in September! Together with the lovely Ruth I had the honour to host the Pinko Ladies Night at Antwerp Fashion Festival last week. I wore this gorgeous ladylike outfit by Pinko (how pretty is that skirt?), while Ruth went for a more casual interpretation of the brand. We had a great time browsing through the gorgeous winter collection (helloooo parkas), sipping from the most delicious cocktails and of course moving to the beats of female DJ duo Hits&Tits! Things got pretty out of hand crazy in the end with people twerking to Kevin Lyttle's Turn Me On and undressing shop mannequins, which made it quite the memorable fashion party! Not only did I want to share the pictures of the event with you, I also wanted to let you know that you can shop the new Pinko collection online from today on. Make sure to check out the lookbook and drop by the Antwerp store at Huidevetterstraat 42!

ANTWERP'S FINEST

VILA c/o sweatshirt ⎜ TALLY WEIJL c/o customized boyfriend jeans ⎜ ESSENTIEL c/o cap
NEUVILLE c/o backpack ⎜ CONVERSE sneakers ⎜ & OTHER STORIES ring & bracelet

You guys were super enthusiast about the sneak peek of this outfit last week, so I'm happy to share the full shoot with you today! Blog buddy Elien and I hadn't seen each other in ages and finally met up before the LEE event last Thursday. Next to sipping coffee and having a good chat we obviously had to take some outfit pictures as well, juuuuust like the old timez. Antwerp's finest street, the Volkstraat (aka our own little SoHo), was the ideal backdrop for this casual outfit. Because of all the fashion stuff happening that week I really enjoyed dressing down in a pair of boyfriend jeans (YES, customized!!), a gorgeous sweatshirt and flat shoes (for God's sake). I wore heels twice that week. TWICE. My feet have been wrapped in bandage and foot lotion ever since. Luckily this outfit was super comfy. Because of the cool backpack and baseball cap I might as well name it a back-to-school inspired look, right? I always try to look all classy and grown-up, but I usually end up looking like the cool 14 year old I never was. At least I got to experience that feeling for once... This post doesn't seem to go anywhere, but I hope you like the outfit and the photos! Gotta go now, important meetings, fun shootings and cool projects ahead! Have a great Wednesday and talk to you soon x

LEE ANTWERP: THE REPORT

foto 1-9

Wow guys, yesterday a super busy but extremely fun week came to an end! Besides having blog meetings, shootings, coffee dates, birthday parties and a trip to an amusement park, there were cool events to attend as well. Ruth and I had the honour to host the re-opening of the LEE store in Antwerp and I'm very excited to share this photo report with you! I caught up with my favourite co-bloggers, had a good laugh with my girlfriends and had an extensive fitting with expert Joop from Suitcase to find myself a brand new pair of jeans. Next to putting together a pretty outfit with my favourite pieces from the store, I was also dressed in the new LEE collection. Weird to see me in a fitted pencil skirt, right? It was denim and it looked hot, so I decided to just GO for it! Aight, I hope you like my little photo report :)
