Officially welcoming Autumn

Now that every one is tired of seeing those white beaches and palmtrees, it’s time to focus on more relevant things: Autumn. And how to dress for it. You know that Autumn is by far my favourite season of the year because I love showing off my layering skills with different materials like fur, leather,…

Deserted beach dreams

It seems like every series of photos I start editing from my trip to Saint Martin seems more surreal! These photos were shot on the dreamiest place of all: the empty beach I talked about in my last post. We came here in the late afternoon but for the prettiest light and least amount of…

The comments on my last Saint Martin posts showed me that you guys aren’t tired of the subject just yet! That’s great news, because I still have so much to share about my Caribbean journey. Now that you’ve learned a bit about the island and that you have seen some beach outfits, I think it’s…

Because who needs winter clothes anyway?

Ok I certainly do, because I wouldn’t want to miss my layering for a thing in the world. But right now all I’m craving for are those +30° temperatures in which even a cotton kaftan seems too hot. These photos were shot right after my first surf class ever and I can’t wait to tell you all…

Life is a beach, Saint Martin

Ever since the existence of Pinterest I’ve been drooling over white sand beaches I’d never thought I would encounter in real life. However, last week I had the chance to finally set foot on one of those dreamy beaches! Our hotel was located at Anse Marcel, a small town all the way up north of…

Travel

Traveling-wise 2015 has been an absolute dream for me: next to a few regularly visited places I traveled to no less than 3 brand new destinations so far. Next to Berlin and Ibiza, which had been on my travel wishlist since forever, I also got introduced to a destination less obvious. The tourism office of Saint…

Flying fashionably

You could follow my plane journey to the beautiful island of Saint Martin pretty intensely via Snapchat, but I totally forgot to show you what I wore! Dressing for traveling is always a challenge: an early morning train ride, a freezing plane, a tropically hot destination… You get confronted with totally different kinds of situations and…

Postcard from Saint-Martin

Bon matin, mes amis! Straight from Saint-Martin and its horrible wifi connection: finally a little postcard! This week is all about discovering the well-known treasures and hidden gems of the Caribbean island, which has quickly won over my heart with its stunning sky-blue sea views, finger licking food and extremely friendly inhabitants. This afternoon I’m…

Sunshine after the rain

Woah, these gloomy pics seem so unreal in comparison with my current views! If you have been following me on Snapchat and Instagram, you must have noticed that I’m in a way sunnier place right now… Still, this outfit seemed like the appropriate thing to post now that October has kicked off. By now you should…

The blooper edition
Personal

The photos you usually see on this blog are carefully selected, edited and curated in a certain way that pleases my personal aesthetic. The photo’s that you don’t see on this blog are usually pretty hilarious. It takes about 80 failed photos to have 6 pretty ones, so why hold back all of the good…

Wellness moments with Relaxy.be

When life gives you bubble baths, you better take advantage of it. And when allround wellness platform Relaxy.be asks you to review a spa, you immediately say YES. After a wonderful morning drive through the idyllic area called Kempen (don’t judge, I was born there), my friend Lisa and I arrived at Instituut Elise in Herentals, close to Antwerp.…

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.…

Easily translate the boho summer trend to Autumn

Temperatures dropping lower doesn’t equal compromising in style; we all know that. But it also doesn’t mean compromising in trends! Why would you stop wearing a favourite trend of yours just because the timing is not “right”? Today I wanted to show you how I translate the boho trend, which is usually something strongly associated with…

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…

Why I’m looking forward to Autumn

Although I can really enjoy a good tanning session on the beach, a late night bonfire with friends or dancing around at music festivals, I secretly don’t mind summer coming to an end because… My favourite season is about to start!

#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…

Zara shopping haul!

Upon receiving my very first paycheck as a working woman (don’t mind that I have worked as a model for years, this somehow feels very different) I decided that I needed to spend it on something really nice. I headed to the Acne store in Berlin last week to try on some cardigans and knits,…

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…
