A Sunday off

Sundays are for chilling and since we’re blessed with this wonderful sunny Autumn weather, my boyfriend and I spent our day off soaking up the sun and exploring new corners in town. Last Sunday we headed to the North of Antwerp, which, despite of its modern architecture, feels a lot like Paris during this time of the year.…

Why would you stop wearing a favourite trend of yours just because the timing is not “right”?

The cape

My office outfits are getting better and better every week, and this one was definitely one of the highlights of the last few days! A cape seems like something difficult to style, but apart from the fact that is it hard to properly move my body in it, it is one of the easier pieces in my…

#TheJourneyJacket

When a few months ago my friend Ruth confided the secret that she would design a jacket for Goosecraft to me, I instantly knew I was going to LOVE it. And then last week, after months and months of discussing, designing and debating, there it was! The result is a slightly longer biker jacket in a super…

Stripes, braids & something pretty practical

On the first day of Lollapalooza festival I noticed a few girls sporting two braids in their hair, which looked both really epic and convenient to me. Wearing my hair down really is a huge task for me, since I’m constantly aware of those annoying loose locks in my neck and on my clothes. The next…

LOLLAPALOOZA FESTIVAL WITH ZALANDO

A 300 second Snapchat story? I wouldn’t want to waste so many seconds of your life unless I have something REAL cool to share. No disappointments there: last weekend Zalando invited me to the very FIRST European Lollapalooza festival in its hometown Berlin! If talking festival stereotypes, I’m that friend who always listens to the festival’s Spotify playlists…

3x office wear winners

Working at an office has drastically influenced my morning dressing routine. When crawling out of bed, I usually only want to put on comfy things. Distressed boyfriend jeans? Nope, no longer possible. A short leather skirt on the other hand? Maybe not. Crop top? Yeah um, no. Although the (fashion) environment at work definitely encourages outfit…

Las Salinas, Ibiza

Our trip to Ibiza only lasted for a few short days, but we made the most out of them by visiting about 3 or 4 beaches with our little scooter. Our first stop was Las Salinas, an area in the south of Ibiza with large fields of salt. The beaches are quite pretty but very busy,…

Ibiza Old Town

Hola amigos! Back in July I found out that I would start my new job in a few weeks already, and I realized that I hadn’t planned any holidays yet! The boyfriend and I were discussing this topic over breakfast in one of our favourite coffee bars, when he suddenly came up with the crazy idea to…

Dressing up like a 6 year old

When I was just a mini-P, I absolutely adored Barbie. I wanted her to have her fabulous long hair, her cool gadgets and especially her impressive outfits! Most dresses were sugar coated pink, super puffy and very glittery, which had absolutely nothing to do with what I used to wear as a kiddo climbing trees with my…

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 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.
