French Summer feels

There’s nothing that screams “France” more than a straw basket and some white and blue embroidery, right? And those +30° temperatures maybe… At some points this week I really felt like I traded Antwerp for France. Staying focused behind my desk is so difficult on these warm days, so I’ve decided to change my work rhythm a bit. I try to catch the cooler moments of the day by starting a bit earlier and working a bit later, so that the afternoons can be dedicated to biking around town for some shade and refreshment — not at all talking about ice-cream, lalala….

The boyfriend and I went to look for cool water near my apartment and settled for a foot dip in a big fountain! Afterwards we undertook a bike ride through town (hello cool wind) and had ice-cream in this beautiful hidden corridor called Vlaeykensgang. If you’re ever in Antwerp, make sure to take a walk through this stunning medieval secret!

Anyway, with this kind of weather I honestly can’t deal with any more clothes than a playsuit or a light cotton Summer dress. I spotted some real cute ones over at Blue & Cream too in… yup, white and blue embroidery. Stick with your Summer classics!

Hope you’re experiencing some lovely Summer days too! Check out my Instagram stories for more hot adventures (wait what).
