More is more. Did I just say that?

I know, my fashion mottos seem to change faster than Kylie Jenner’s hairdo’s  in 2015 but hey, I guess that’s what happens in fashion! One day you’re into normcore, the next day you’re rocking a sequin sweatshirt with a bright printed skirt. How did that happen? Well, the most fun thing about exams finally being over is…

Hair musings: all about those bangs
Beauty

First of all: YEEHAA, I finished my last exam earlier this week! Assuming that I totally passed, I will finally graduate next month and I can add my Bachelor of Languages and Linguistics (Dutch/English) to my curriculum vitae. Now that exams are over, I can focus on blogging and being creative again, which I have missed so…

Win a well-deserved holiday break in Saint-Martin, the Caraibes!
Travel

As you might have noticed by my insanely stupid playback videos on Snapchat, I’m currently studying for my very last exam. After a full week of intense studying, I’ve obviously started to have hallucinations about better, non-study times… Like for example, that one time when Elien and I took over the amazing Caribbean island Saint-Martin!…

A brand you may be not too familiar with, is Spanish affordable luxury brand Uterqüe. They used to have a store in Antwerp and Brussels but since they both have closed, we now have to rely on their webshop for a wardrobe update.

2014 snow outfits (let’s just pretend it’s winter!)

This year the holidays were going to be very special: it was the first time in 4 years that I didn’t have to study! As a real holidays-fan, that’s something to look forward to. Unfortunately this week didn’t really go as planned… I just wasn’t in the mood! I find it difficult to decorate a Christmas tree,…

Western hipster

And finally, here’s the first look of 2016: a tomboy combination of two of my favourite trends, normcore (which developed from a strong tendency to being lazy) and boho (the only thing missing is my dear fedora hat). This outfit is one of the few that I’ve worn so far this year, since all I’ve been doing…

7 days, 7 outfits

Hello 2016! How have your New Year’s celebrations been? Mine were pretty quiet this year, having dinner and playing games with friends at home. For the past few days I’ve really enjoyed relaxing at home and going through all my 2015 archives (I did a roundup post earlier this week!), so that now I feel more than…

The best of 2015
Personal

Another year has come to an end, and with a brand new year approaching really fast it’s always nice to look back for a moment and appreciate all the wonderful things that have happened. 2015 was a pretty good year for me! I almost graduated from university (ha, still one more exam to go), I…

How to wear: the leopard trousers

Leopard: a print that can be fabulous when worn right, but quite tacky when combined with the wrong items. These leopard trousers make it even trickier because they always remind me of this particular Belgian tv character. But how cute and sophisticated do they look with a navy cashmere knit, long navy coat and white sneakers? It’s…

Hi guys! I hope you had a few lovely Christmas days? I still have a dinner party tonight with my family, so I’m looking forward to a lovely evening with delicious food, old family photos and fun presents. And speaking of presents… I treated myself with a Christmas present as well! Earlier this week I…

3 holiday looks for 3 different occasions

Hi ladies! Only one day left before Christmas and if you are anything like me, you have probably tried on about 15 outfits already for tomorrow’s dinner but still haven’t found the perfect look. Since I often suffer from this indecisiveness myself, I decided to make a mini inspiration guide for 3 different occasions: the girlfriend dinner,…

My bedroom & closet transformation
Home

About a year ago I told you about the plans I had with my (very small) bedroom: a fun interior make-over including a way bigger closet! After some serious delays, I finally had the time to redecorate the room last month. Since I am so pleased with the results, I decided to share some before…

A shearling dream

If there’s 3 things I can never get enough of, it’s coats, leather pant and white sneakers. So this outfit was obviously one of my favourites this week! This lovely shearling coat was a real steal since it’s currently marked down from €129 to €49! And how great is the fit of these pleather boyfriend pants? The…

My holy hair grails

On one of of my last Instagram posts I received a lot of comments about my hair and if I would share a little tutorial with you guys. By now you know that I’m no beauty queen, but I do have a few products that I have been using religiously lately. Read along! Balmain Hair texturizing…

An oldie but goodie

When browsing through my archives the other day, I stumbled upon a few photos that I apparently forgot to post last year! Since the outfit is rather appropriate for this time of the year, why not share them with you guys today? Most items in this look are still favourites: the leather pants, the classic…

A few years ago I used to share everything that inspired me, everything that I did during the day and everything that I personally loved here on the blog. Nowadays my content is always created with you guys in mind, which means that things might be less personal and spontaneous. And we don’t want that to…

When I grow up…

Only a few months ago I traded the student life for two real cool office jobs: I work as a part time community manager and copywriter for a fashion company in Antwerp and of course I have my blog, which basically counts for a full time job. Oh, and in between this office craziness I do still accept…

Celebrating my mum, my hero
Personal

Not only am I visually a 3 cm shorter copy of her, I’m also starting to take over my mum’s little habits and customs. The thing is that my mum always set a great example for me and taught me lots of important values in life. In the light of Rituals’ #givefromtheheart campaign I’d like to thank…

Instant office chic

Since I can be quite lazy in the morning, my office looks are usually fairly simple: a pair of skinny jeans, a sophisticated shoe and a light knit. My favourite to-go colour combo? Camel and black. For an elegant ton-sur-ton effect I wore this oatmeal colored peacoat on top of the camel knit, and added a…

The coziest time of the year goes hand in hand…

Oh dear, today it is exactly 6 years ago that I sat behind my parent’s computer and created a fashion blog in just a few clicks! Little did I know that this teenager hobby of mine would become a profession with which I could not only chase but also fulfill dreams. This 6th year of blogging has…

Pielaun in the city

How gorgeous is this wall I shot this outfit in front? Instant imaginary trip to New York! In reality, this is what I wore in my own beloved city Antwerp yesterday. In the morning my friend Lisa and I undertook a journey to IKEA (yup, since we spent about 4 hours inside I better call it a…

7 Days, 7 Outfits

Last year this category was a huge hit on the blog, and it’s a shame that my last post has been so long ago! That’s why I decided to capture every outfit of the week a little while ago: no particular styling or gorgeous setting, just simply what I wore on a daily base. Join…
