Throwback to Mexico!
Travel

Oh mannnnnn. Flash backwards: exactly one year ago I was eating ceviche, visiting Maya temples and chilling on the stunning white sand beaches of Mexico! This week has been pretty painful, as Facebook keeps reminding me of our dream holiday by sharing daily memories and photos. THANKS, Zuckerberg. But no, to be honest, it is…

A beachside pastel explosion

Wow, these pictures TOTALLY transport me back to way warmer August days and I can’t wait for an Indian Summer to kick in. I’m currently at not THE most exotic place in the world (hej Denmark!) but I heard Belgium is pretty sweaty today? In that case: here’s some inspiration to make the very best out…

My WECANDANCE look + a 25% discount code!

And SNAP – it’s weekend again! I feel extremely grateful to have a job that makes my weeks flow by as fast as weekends usually flow by. But that might have to do with the fact that I don’t really have strictly defined weeks or weekdays… Anyhowsss: last Sunday I attended WECANDANCE fest at the seaside to…

Sunday at the seaside

Since sun seems to be pretty precious these days, Lisa and I dropped by Justine’s place at the Belgian coast to soak up some vitamin D. We had the perfect weekend day starting with a homemade breakfast in the garden, a little bike tour afterwards and a quick shopping trip to Zara at noon. In the afternoon we…

Favourite 2016 festival look #2

Festival season is in full swing, so here’s another throwback to one of my favourite festival looks from last Summer! I wore this to beachside festival We Can Dance, which had a fun space theme going on. My interpretation of this theme was to add a touch of metallic to a classic festival look: a slip…

Sandy getaway

Since the boyfriend and I already celebrated our holidays back in February (Mexico, I miss u) AND we bought a house this year, we kind of need to save up this Summer. We decided not to book another expensive vacay, but opt for mini getaways and lots of staycation days instead! In my previous post you could…

Aphrodite

Life is full of contradictions, and your closet can be too! You guys know I prefer a simple white shirt dress and slippers over anything when I’m on holidays, and still I decided to do some dressing up in Cyprus. After all, a goddess’ birthplace deserves a bit of attitude, right? You’ve seen another look…

The full Cyprus travel diary
Travel

Writing about lovely, warm past travels is so much easier when it’s boiling outside! So after a few outfit posts (find them here, here and here) it’s finally time for my full Cyprus travel diary including my recommendations on where to stay, eat and relax. Grab a cup of something because it’s a long one! I was invited…

A simple beach look

That horrible cold and rain outside makes me pretty nostalgic to my warm, bare feet beach walks in Mexico… Here’s probably one of my easiest holiday looks ever, but keeping things simple is key when you’re relaxing, right? I wore this oversized shirt to a day trip to Celestún, a small fishing village next to…

A beach wishlist for Mexico!

You guys! On Sunday I’m finally leaving for Mexico! Ever since we impulsively booked our flights back in October, I’ve been extremely impatient to finally head to the sun. And to finally get that sun wardrobe started again… I did a pretty good job containing myself during sales and waited for the new Summer collections to…

Space monkey!

Since I had no real holiday plans for Summer, I stocked up on plenty of festival tickets to at least pretend that I’m out of the country for a while. Some festivals just seem like a whole unique world on their own, right? That’s exactly the case with electronic music festival WeCanDance! This edition was a first for me, and the beachside festival immediately managed to…

Dressed Up magazine
Personal

Since I work as a community manager and copywriter for the designer store group Princess in Antwerp a few days a week, I get to do a lot of cool projects besides my blog as well. One of those projects is our biannual online magazine DRESSED UP! For this magazine my job consists of the full creative…

Blue da ba dee da ba daa

Having just returned from a mini-trip to the seaside, I’m feeling all blue again. Not only would I rather have stayed for the entire month, I’ve also returned with a wardrobe filled with blue pieces. For some reason I just keep going back to that ultimate classic combo of white, navy and stripes. However, to avoid looking…

Summer at the seaside

A real quick update today, just to share these photos with you guys! I’d do anything to not have to deal with that horrible weather outside, so I decided to give in to some escapist behaviour by recalling those blue skies and warm sea breeze from a lovely hot weekend earlier this month. The Belgian coast seems to be…

Seaside shenanigans

Last weekend was spent tanning, munching on watermelon and reading gossip magazines at the seaside. When I was a mini P we never went on holidays to the Belgian shore, so it was only until last weekend that I experienced my very first REAL vacation feeling in my own country! Lisa and I got up early every day,…

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…

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…

Saint Martin travel diary, part 1
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…

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…
