In Kessel (place in the Belgian village where I live) there is a wonderful place to walk. I just love it because it's the perfect mix between sea sand and forest. For this little walk I chose my newest lover: a red cape with fringes. Found this pretty 'coat' at LA DIVA in Mortsel (Belgium) for the Antwerplovers. Got the cutest shoes to match the red riding hood look: wolf shoes. Though it was alright to chose a playful accent, if you just don't overdo it.. right? Not everyone is a big fan, so let me know what you think. My opinion: wear what you like.

BAM! As promised: a new party dress I liked from the vintage/retro shop 'Passe Partout'. Totally love the peacock detail (not the first dress I showed with this print). Gold is always a good idea for New Year's eve or another big party. This dress has a 'Little party never killed nobody' attitude (from the Great Gatsby) and that's why I chose the headband to glam it up. The shoes are my favorite, you must know that they are from Avance (still available now guys).

Hope your Christmas was full of love. I'm so lucky with my cute little family so we organized Christmas eve at our new place to celebrate it. We had the party upstairs (there is our dinning space) and it wasn't all that simple. The most important thing was that my dad visited our place for the first time since we moved here in August. He's in a wheelchair so I'm so happy that he finally got to see our living space. That was the best X-mas present I could ever imagine. I lost all of my grandparents but there is an older couple that we can always count on. They were here too and I thought it would be perfect to give them the lovely PIPER HEIDSIECK bottle as a gift. Jean really was surprised with this luxurious bottle and how amazing it was represented in the beautiful red bag (with gold on the inside). PIPER-HEIDSIECK Cuvée Brut is a lovely classic Champagne and is known for years to be one of the bests (the Heidsieck house is from 1785). Maybe a good idea for New year's eve?
We had a lovely time, let us know what you think about our home.

What a hot winter we got this year man, X-mas is coming and it's 13 degrees outside (in Belgium). Still I thought it was lovely to shoot this furry coat from Passe Partout Herentals (again that lovely store with retro items), it's winter after all right? The coat has an ombre effect: white to black (yes ombre is still a good idea). The fur isn't real, that my friends I find also important. There are enough alternatives to real fur that I find it almost absurd to buy the real versions. Maybe second hand from your grand mothers closet is quiet allright I think. In my opinion killing animals for coats is unneccesairy ... let me think of Cruela Devil a bit... and we all hear DEVIL in that right ;), no bad joke...just talking about my own choices I don't judging anyone at all! If you're more interested in vegan fashion you should definetly check out the blog CESTLISSA, this girl is a Belgian vegan girl with a great taste in fashion. I'm not a vegan but I got a big respect for vegans and vegaterians (like my best friend Yamuna) 'cause they do make a change. They make us think twice about our food and clothing choices... not that I make always the best ones. But it matters that you just try sometimes.

Okay I got to admit I'm not totally in the X-mas mood. Always been a SPRING/SUMMER girl so when I saw these pieces at the cutest shop ever: Louise (webshop here) I instantly knew that I wanted to wear this from the shop. For the time of the year it's not cold at all so I tough this was a great choice to wear this for an event. The cropped top is totally winter with the knit design, but the rest...sorry but I was in a desperate need for a bit of a Spring feeling. HOW COOL is that purse btw? So definitely go to the Louise shop (now on-line, in Herentals or the pop-up in Antwerp, Nationalestraat) and go for these items... you can wear it in Spring/Summer too ;).
Got to admit that a pants from 'FREDDY PANT ROOM' was on my wish list for ages. For girls with a well-shaped figured (a-hum) like me I was in a desperate need of pants that would lift my butt. Cause that's what FPR has created: the WR.UP technology. It's like a push up but for your butt.. what the hell does that have to do with sports? Well the pants 'stick' to your body and gives a high comfort. And that my friends, we sure know now. We were invited to a 'CROSS FIT ANTWERP' event to try it out: rope skipping, push ups, running,... it all worked out well: everything stayed in place. And I though we looked more than okay in these sport pants. For curved women it's not easy to sport, mostly I have to lift my pants up all the time. These one did it job perfectly and it sucked it all in ;). Not convinced yet? Just try it yourself in the Freddy pant room in ANTWERP: Nationalestraat or go and see their webshop (here). Oh yeah... I'm a big fan of their jeans collection, check that out too and you'll be amazed. By the way.. CROSS fit is a hell of a job :o, just when I tought my condition was better.. but Esther was really good at it. I just have to work more on my strength. It was a good experience tough and coach was super.

PURR-fect, that's what I tought when I saw this awesome shirt from LOUISE (shop). A clean white shirt with a sweet little cat detail. This rather chic look I combined with a MOSCHINO blazer and that's the first time I found a great look to pull it off. If you got some ideas for the blazer, just shoot! Shoes are from the Portugese 'Sofwaves'... just an easy brand to wear and don't you just love burgundy? For my Belgian visitors... more about the shop LOUISE. The shop is located in Herentals (Zandstraat, Belgium) and they also got a webshop. Now they are also located in ANTWERP (Nationalestraat). The shop is so cozy and girly... and I think I'm going to visit it more often in the future.

The most wonderful time of the year.. and always the same question: what to wear for the festives? I'm so lucky to have a store nearby (Passe Partout Herentals) with A LOT of pretty dresses and mostly a bit retro inspired (perfect for each figure). It's okay to go retro if you give it a touch from now (like here the shoes). I just can't believe again that time flew by so quickly.. almost time for 2016. The next days I will show you some other dresses from the shop, let me know what you think about this one.

Fall is such a wonderful time of the year: leaves changing, crips air, cozy sweaters and warm drinks. What is there not to love? We encourage you to explore the outdoors and enjoy the weather with friends or a loved one. I found my perfect fall outfit by combining my summer blouse with a woolen jacket from Julia June and added boho items like the brown purse and hat and fringe boots.
I'm still enjoying this season with some walks, how about you guys?

I never really set out to fall in love with ponchos since they're usually something I associate with my nana and out-of-the-way craft fairs, but this 'Ciao Tutti' one, really made me convert. I've worn it with my fav grey shirt from Jean Paul Knott (from the ZIN STORE) and I never felt so comfortable and classy at the same time. Given the way life's been going lately, i'm in absolute need of these types of multi-taskers. Scroll down to see the full post.

Who does not like a rather luxury item converted into a trendy and pretty cool object? many designers have gotten inspired and come up with, sometimes unexpected objects.
Marble is the trend of the year: marble in your home, marble print on phone cases (Esther has one), rings,... and also the print on shirts. It's easy to combine, even very chic. I think it was very smart to come up with smaller designs and even adopt the print in so many ways. As a second choice, you'll find black marble (like I'm wearing from LE TEMPS DE CERISES).

That we're a big fan of ADIDAS is not a secret. That's why I fell in love with this fabulous sweater from their newest collection! Not only are the colors so pretty, but it felt so comfortable wearing it in Croatia too.
Combined with my REPLAY hyperflexx and my Converses, my swag was on fleek! ;-) Tell me your thoughts on this gorgeous sweater!

I'm wearing my new favorite leopard coat today that I recently got from Esprit. I love animal prints for several reasons: it's loud and eye catching and in my opinion a must have in your wardrobe. Under the coat, I'm wearing one of my favorite color combinations: red, white and black. Hope you like the look, ow yeah I'm wearing my best heals too from Avance. Scroll down for outfit details and let me know what you think about the look.

While every decade had its major style contribution (and downfalls, for that matter), it's hard to find a decade that had more consistently amazing style, diversity and attitude than the 70's. No wonder major trends inspired from the decade have had major staying power! Got to admit that I found my 70's pieces in thrift shops... my latest addiction but luckily you can find most of the pieces in a lot of stores nowadays like Newlook (my fringe shoes were from there). Must-haves are: fringe, dark blue denim, suede, orange details, ... wake up the 70s are so back! As for 70's inspired style, you just might be surprised by how much you've already been wearing that fits the bill.

My visit at the new showroom of MaisonPR was just fabulous. With a gorgeous gintonic from Skully Gin in my left hand and a fabulous Flossy in my right, my day couldn't get better! I loved getting back together with my sweet friends Jill & Sidney, they did a great job on styling their new place!
About this super yummy Skully Gin, I was amazed by its fantastic taste and the differents flavours. So not only does these bottles and glasses look very edgy and fashionable, Skully Gin is absolutely worth trying! Too bad I had to drive myself home so I couldn't have another glass! ;-)

Last week I met my sweet friend for some after work Cointreau drinks in bar Berlin (Antwerp ;)). The weather has been so nice during the day, but at night when the fog rolls, it gets really chilly so I usally grab my leather jacket to throw over whatever I'm wearing. This outfit is filled with some of my must-have wardrobe staples and pieces I reach for again and again a striped tee, leather jacket, Hyperflex skinny jeans (best jeans EVER) and red lipstick.

I mean... do I need to explain my huge crush on this REPLAY glitter sweater?! -- Didn't think so either! ;-) I felt so femenine ànd fabulous when I wore it and to top it off, I accessorized it with a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana sunny!
Beautiful Croatia made my whole look even more pretty! The weather was perfect and so was our view. I enjoyed this fotoshoot and trip so much and I think you all can see that joy on my happy face :-)

We are totally fan of the Colourful Rebel (link here), better known as the brand with 'BOEF' (dutch word for 'thief') or 'REBEL' on the sweaters.. This rebellious brand from Amsterdam has even more to offer: like this amazing CACTUS sweater, come on don't you love it? Also great to know is that they started with the blog (you can find here) and we all love bloggers right?! They will have a new collection in October 2015 (so soon!) and we are excited to hear that the line will be LARGER than before. New designs and prints are coming up and also underwear and even JACKS (bomber jacks..) The line has a New York vibe (you will see that on the new pictures on their site). Now we can go crazy because they offer everybody a 40% discount till then. SHOP HERE (link)

When in Belgium, you definitely have to visit the University city Leuven. The old narrow streets give a cozy atmosphere and you will sure feel at home. I really felt home at the ZIN store, in centre of Leuven. The store only has quality pieces and you sure can see the difference with the big brands: eye for details. The store let me chose a sweater that I will show you later, and I'm feeling so spoiled: the material is so soft... I'm not used to this luxury. We have to choose more for these quality minimalistic pieces, it's an investment. Sure I will always be a bohemian girl, but with the right accessories you can make each outfit more you. Thank you ZIN for having me, hope you like the pictures. Let me know if you're inspired too.

Black and white is always a win, but who can do it better than ADIDAS? I'm wearing this look in the warm country Croatia, that's why I chose my jeans overalls to match. Now in Belgium (with the weather) I would wear probably longer overalls or just a simple jeans. This truckers cap is from my previous Surf trip to Moliets with the organisation Surfblend. Of course you see my number one travel mates: my black flatforms from Teva's. Croatia was so beautiful, I really enjoyed the trip I had with coblogger Esther. More Croatia looks from her are comming up.

You allready knew that I love my yellow sandals from New Look, but I totally loved combining them with this purple blouse -- also from New Look. Because both colors are pastelish, I though it would be fun to put them together in one look. To complete this outit, I wore some gorgeous and very colorfull earrings from H&M.
Summer's almost over, but that doesn't mean that the sun has allready left our little country. Therefor I could still wear my KOMONO sunnies. Last but not least, I found the most comfortable jeans in the world: HYPERFLEX from Replay. It feels like you're wearing a legging, but it's actually a jeans. How fab is that?!
Hopefully you guys also like this simple, colorfull look as much as I do!

Today I will show you my new glasses from SILHOUETTE EYEWEAR. The first time I got in contact with Silhouette was with the press days, I tried one of their sunglasses and was so amazed with the frames. The frames from Silhouette are much thinner, therefore really (!) lightweight. This of course goes with the brands philosophy and it is what they do best. They may seem delicate but I can assure you they are extremely durable. I found this glasses on their webshop, and it was really easy to try one on...digitally! I used a picture to choose the model and color (here): THE SPX ILLUSION FULLRIM. This blogpost is just the proof that highly comfort and fashion goes hand in hand. I chose for a brown frame with a vintage tough (with the spots). What do you guys find of my new glasses? Do you like me better with or without glasses? Did you knew about the lightweight glasses from Silhouette? Let me know.

Making a flashback to a gorgeous summer with this look! My favorite ZARA playsuit combined with AVANCE high heels, so classy but yet so different.
I looked such a long time to find the perfect playsuit which suits my female shapes the best and I totally found it at ZARA. This black playsuit is very comfy and so fun to wear!
When you want to edgy up your look, you're in need of these fabulous black heels from AVANCE. I also like to wear them with a pare of ripped jeans and a basic T-shirt... These shoes will pimp your look completely!

Whoop, last night Levi's toasted the debut of his new women's denim collection: THE LOT 700 series. Created to flatter, hold and lift the body. Best part? We were invited @ The Pony Club in Antwerp and we got the chance to meet the six ambassadors:

Wished summer was still here... Another throwback to the beautiful Croatia with this fabulous ESPRIT blouse! I though it was perfect to wear on our little trip! It was comfy and so stylish at the same time. The pretty little pearls really made the difference in my opinion.
I combined it with a simple ripped jeans short, some SASHA sandals, DOLCE & GABBANA sunnies, H&M golden earcandy and a gorgeous HEMA bracelet. Oh... and of course, the this super magnificent view!

Summer isn't summer without a colorfull floral maxi skirt ;-) And with some gorgeous matching yellow shoes from New Look, my day couldn't be better! I combined these fun pieces with a neutral white top and a denim jacket.
Oh yes, this fabulous headband -- also from New Look. Headbands are normaly not really my thing, but I got to be honnest: I totally love this one and I though it made the whole look a lot more fun!

Sharing my thoughts today about the latest Scholl Velvet Smooth express pedi. It's an electronic foot file and pretty 'idiot-proof': just switch it on by rotating the silver ring and DONE, press the scrubbing head gently to areas where you want to remove dead skin and calluses (like on the heels). If you press it too hard the gadget will come to a stop.
The result: It really does help remove the dead skin and it works way better than a manual one (honestly). The progress only took 10 minutes! Fast and with results, just the way I like it, and no I'm not sponsered.
You can find it @ Kruidvat or online (here).

Hey hey, we're back from Croatia and we can't wait to share some pictures with you guys. Do you know Flossy yet? This shoe brand is made in IBIZA and each pair is made with love and care. It's really a must have this season to make your outfit pop. They have a lot of colors and prints, just the way we like it. Our personal favorites are the palmtrees (Leila has them) and the pineapples (from Esther).
Hope you enjoy your summer, don't forget to check out the Flossy website (here).
And you? Are you crazy for Flossy too? Let us know!

When the weather is warm and you want to show off your style without layering on blazers, hats and scarves, throw on an eye-catching statement necklace over your outfit for a quick and effortless ensemble. This stand out piece looks best when styled with a simple outfit. Keep the rest of your jewelry simple, especially your earrings. You don't want to look like a little girl who overindulged in her mom's jewelry box. By keeping your jewelry simple, you are letting the statement pieces speak for themselves.
My favorite statement piece for the moment I got from Jae accessories. You really have to check out their webshop (link) and follow their instagram (here) for the new pieces. They deliver really fast and it's easy to contact them anytime.

When I saw this maxi dress at H&M, I almost fainted. I had to have it, it suits me in every way. I love the shape, the fabric, the prints, everything! I styled it with my new sunglasses from I Am, a bracelet from HEMA, mixed silver and rose sandals from SACHA and some temporary gold tattoos from ZOMERINKT.
I felt so summerproof wearing this outfit and most importantly: I felt good, 'cause that's how you need to feel every single day.
Share your thoughts on my outfit, I look forward hearing from you guys! XO
