Brussels, Sunday December 27th 2020, 22h38 It's already late when I'm sitting on the couch enjoying one last glass of champagne reminiscing, I believe, the most meaningful Christmas weekend so far. My cat is softly purring on its blanket next to me, the fireplace is lit, just like dozens of candles...

I hope that for those who already started a new year in school, everything went as you hoped for this first week. While your feeds are surely getting flooded with back to school- looks and outfit posts; well, I’m sorry but here’s another one! As for me, I’m only getting back to college on the 1st o...

When you’d rather be chilling at home, but still got responsibilities going on in the outside world that require your flawless presence: this basically is what happens. You decide that ‘today will be just a little more effortless than usual’; and you don’t change your at home flared jungle pants for...

This is not my first post wearing jeans dungarees. Flashback to 2014 , where I wore a shorter version of today’s showpiece. So I assume that, in case you’re following me here for a looong time already, the fact that I love to wear dungarees (because they always fit me super well and I kind of get a...

Last month I had the opportunity to work together with one of my fave boutiques in Leuven selling Italian, yet affordable fashion. Karina Vom Berge, named after its owner with the same name. The upcoming weeks I'll be showing you three looks I got to pick myself to show you on the blog. The fact tha...

Going out for coffee is one of my favorite things to do. To have a chat around it, or just by myself: I truly think it’s still one of the rare, most peaceful activities in this overbusy world. That’s why I grabbed one with Pauline , one of my sporadic go-to photographers. My coffee break was not th...

Hello folks, I hope you’re all doing well. Tonight I’d like to share a conscious urban outfit with you. Maybe I’m not the only one that has noticed a slight evolution over the years, throughout the origin of my wardrobe pieces appearing on this blog. I tend to combine more high quality products to...

Coming back home from vacation two days ago, in this ice cold environment I was so happy to escape from for a while, I had mixed feelings. I wanted to take a fresh start at school and be the best version of myself , at the same time I felt like I really needed some more time off. The last two m...

Hello lovers ❤ Tonight I’m welcoming you on the blog for the last time this year, with an outstanding outfit I’m personally really fond of. The past few weeks I’ve been quite absent here, and also my every day posting on Instagram has diminished within the same timeframe. And although it’s been good...

This look is definitely the opposite of what you expect to come out of my closet. All black, classic and serene. Certainly nothing tomboy-ish about it. To me, wearing all black and formal clothes screams out hush and mystery. Now, do those adjectives describe the girl that I am? Nope, even on th...

I often get multiple questions from friends, family but also you regarding my favorite cities to shop. Truth is I could come up with one, maybe two examples (like Antwerp & Brussels) that are anything but original. I mean who wasn’t been in one of those yet, hoping to find something they’re looking ...

Hello girls! Today I’m happy to share a special look with you that I had the honour to compose in collaboration with Decadence de Luxe , a concept store in the heart of Sint-Truiden. I had heard multiple times about the shop before and since my friend Julie shoots for them regularly, we decided to ...

Although it’s Fall, I keep wearing skirts and dresses to class every single day. I’m in love with this warm and easy weather that makes it perfectly possible for us girls to still pull off some bare legged-looks. To keep this blog and myself up-to-date regarding the contingency of seasons in our lit...

What happens when you match two of 2017’s most fashionable must-have items together? In my case, you get the perfect indian summer/late garden party look. For this ensemble I chose to wear my beloved Bobo Tremelo heels (I’m quite sure you saw them passing by already haha) instead of casual sneakers ...

I hardly ever find something suitable enough for myself in sales. Whether it’s not available in my size anymore or whether it’s just rubbish of poor quality: I’ve seriously experienced it all. Nope, sales aren’t my favorite time of the year. One of the rare exceptions when it comes to shopping sales...

Hi guys! Today I’m showing you this breathtaking look (I mean, I’m in love) that I shot with Annelies in a big rose garden close to where I live. You’ll see more of the beautiful roses that grow there in the next outfit posts I’m about to write! Fact: I was chased by dozens of geese while taking...

Seeing these pictures again makes me long for Summer more than I ever could’ve imagined.

Totally clueless I was ab...

“They are obviously, certainly and without any doubt made for me.” It’s the first thought that came to my mind when I crossed these babies’ path.

Hi guys! First of all I’d like to thank you for the mass of support and kind words I received on my entry for Zalando’s Creative Content Icon .

It had been ages since Annelies and me got out on the streets to shoot together, like we usually do after or before class. Summer had separated the two us and our little team got neglected for a while. I’m happy that this new semester not only brings new things for the blog (stay tuned) , but also ...

Hi girls! School has started two weeks ago for me, and so far it has been a constant hurry to get all administration settled, to get all of my books (and life together, lol), to be present at the obligated birthday (or non-birthday) parties AND most courses… It’s the regular ‘beginning of the semes...

A special occasion, such as the anniversary of the blog (yesss, it’s been two extraordinary years already!) asks for a blogpost with a twist : no boring pictures of another outfit in the streets, in front of a colorful door, or anything else so basic you can imagine that we bloggers made a habit of...

The bomber jacket : a basic that was standing on top of my wish list for a while now.

I hesitated for half an hour between the exac...

First of all: HAPPY 2016!!! I had a great New Year’s Eve with my best friends at home.

And honestly, I couldn’t have ...

An outfit to wear to business appointments, or even college? This week’s sparkle heel-look shows you how to dress formal and credible, without neglecting your inner splendour.

The biker look: do you wear it casual or chique?
