That 70s show

The seventies were never really my era: I honestly don’t like flare pants and the pale shade of those flower power prints looks horrible on me. BUT when I spotted this little striped number with high collar and slightly longer sleeves, I knew I had to have it. And then, as if I was contaminated with the 70s…

Add some drama

My home town Antwerp offers many gorgeous architectural gems, and not just the famous ones like the cathedral, the MAS museum or the city hall! By just wandering around you’ll discover plenty more unknown buildings that are equally (or even more) stunning as the obligated architectural must-sees. Examples are the richly decorated late 19th century…

A classic Spring uniform

Blooming cherry blossoms, my old light trenchcoat and the first pieces of fresh watermelon: three key words that define how I celebrated that incredibly warm Sunday last weekend! In the afternoon temperatures rose over 22° here in Antwerp, so even though that spring coat came out to play unexpectedly early, I took it off even quicker! Yep, biking…

From gym to office and back with Zalando

Over the years my style has slowly but surely been evolving from girly to a more sporty vibe. The ones amongst you that have been reading my blog from the beginning must remember the days in which I would only leave the house wearing a frilly skirt and high heels, right? Those days are definitely over now:…

Print clashing 2.0

Last month I showcased several ways of wearing my beloved ZARA trousers with leopard print, with which I tried to convert you guys to the “leopard is a basic” principle. And basics can be combined with prints, right? I channeled my inner Lizzy VD Ligt  and threw in an eclectic vibe in which I felt surprisingly comfortable. In…

Why brunch meetings are always the best

Do I really have to explain? Hello there, perfect pink wall, fresh flowers and pastel cushions. Oh hi, delicious food that I can stuff my face with without wasting any energy on the cooking process. And of course, thank god for never having to do the dishes myself. Last week was all about meetings, and more…

CKS x Polienne: the first images!

You know that feeling when you meet someone that you’ve noticed around but had never really talked to before, and suddenly you get along really great? That sometimes happens between bloggers and brands too! When Belgian label CKS invited me to come over and discover the brand at their impressive headquarters, we immediately clicked. Not only do I love their…

An early Spring

And here we go, the first “action” shots of my new coupe! Are you loving the bangs too? Here’s what I wore earlier this week, when temperatures rose up to almost 15 degrees. I figured that I could go lightly dressed in this gorgeous Filippa K shirt and rolled up denim (with of course a jacket too), but…

The perfect neutrals

You can never go wrong with the holy trio, black, white and grey. That’s exactly what I was thinking when pulling together this office-proof look. And speaking of office-proof: I’ve noticed that I’m wearing more sophisticated and polished things lately, even on the days that I don’t have to be at the office. It seems like…

Winter at last!

From my last posts you’ve probably extracted that I do really love Winter and that I have been waiting impatiently for the cold to kick in. And at last, it’s been freezing for the last couple of days! That means that I’ve finally been able to bring out the fur accessories, gloves and scarves to…

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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

Antwerp’s finest vintage stores

Antwerp may not be AS vintage-oriented as Berlin or Amsterdam, but you can still do some nice thrifting here! The fun thing is that most things are actually still affordable, in contrary to more expensive vintage shopping cities like London. Antwerp does focus more on designer vintage, regarding our fashion history and the fashion academy.…

My office uniform

Although I work part-time at a fashion company, I’m often way too lazy to pick interesting things in the morning. To save time when getting out of bed I usually stick to one type of outfit that I keep repeating in different versions. Easy peasy! My current uniform exists of wool cropped Filippa K trousers,…

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…

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.…

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”?

We gathered at the stunning Lindner hotel in Antwerp, where…

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…
