PINK(O)

Lately I really am catching up with my feminine side! Give me dresses, cleavage, skirts or high heels: I’ll wear it. Proof can be found here, here and here! I figured that after that explosion of femininity and sexiness you guys could handle a super tight A-line dress with a decent amount of cleavage as well.…

All white in Sardinia

Oh yeah, my Sardinia posts are finally coming up! I have been dying to show you this gorgeous all white PINKO outfit that I wore on my first day there. As you probably know, I’m not quite of a summer fashion person: I love my cashmere, woolen coats and beanies too much.

Dots & hotspots

Niets leuker dan toerist in eigen stad spelen tijdens een verlengd weekend. Lisa en ik kuierden wat door de zonnige straten van Antwerpen toen we de Vlaeykensgang ontdekten, de oudste straat van de stad! Omdat er bijna niemand was en we de Zuid-Frankrijk vibe zo fijn vonden, besloten we het straatje te gebruiken als idyllische achtergrond voor…

Since we were captivated by the old, super cozy, almost South-French vibe (and…

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…
