SHEER

Now I was always a big fan of maxidresses for summer but this year I think my collection is going to double. Lately I feel super comfortable wearing them and they also compliment my bump. This sheer one is perfect for layering. Wearing a jeans underneath makes wearing a maxi even more comfortable and cool.   | Maxidress ZARA | Jeans TOPSHOP | Bag VINTAGE | Sunnies PRADA | Bracelet CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SHORT STORY

From the moment I knew I was pregnant, and ok to be totally honest, from the moment I knew I wanted children I worried about how to dress while being the one  with a bump. Looking at traditional maternity wear and all magazines, shops and equally themed what-so-ever made me sad, really sad. Luckily the last couple of years this image has changed drastically and I’m determined to keep this trend going. Up until now, I’m almost half way, I still fit all of my own clothes so maintaining my own style is no problem so far. But I promised myself to stay as true to my own style as I possibly can, maybe I will not wear heels all day long anymore, I will keep wearing them when I can. And the same goes for short skirts,  fitted dresses and skinny jeans. I’m ready for the challenge. . | Shirt ZARA Men | Skirt ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies PRADA | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

DAY AND NIGHT

When I’m packing my suitcase for a sunny destination I always make sure I pack outfits that work both day and night. I rather pack lots of accessories and shoes than a lot of clothes. It makes choosing what to wear so much easier and I don’t have to drag arround a lot of stuff that I don’t get to wear after all. Short and blouses, the perfect base, are suitable for any occasion. Again I just  switch shoes and accessories and I’m ready to go.   | Blouse ZARA | Shorts ZARA | Bag and sunnies CHANEL | Heels ZARA | Jewelry KENNETH JAY LANE | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

ISLAND COLORS

For years now a LWD is always coming with me on my summer holidays. It’s the perfect blanc canvas that works with all of the accessories and shoes that I bring with me. I wear it dressed down during the day (like here in Rome) and dressed up during the evening but there is no big difference. I love to combine it with colorful accessories and shoes, tanned skin and holiday glow will do the rest.   | Dress MANGO | Heels ZARA | Clutch H&M | Sunnies + Bracelet  CHANEL | Earrings KENNET JAY LANE | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

GEOMETRIC

    This geometric dress is comming with me on holiday for more then 5 years now I believe. I can’t rember when I bought it exactly but I sure love to wear it. It’s the ultimate vacation dress. It’s comfortable to wear, it doesn’t wrinkle in my suitcase and it doesn’t need much to wow. And then, did you spotted the little bump I’m carrying lately? Well yep, I’m 4 months pregnant by now and it feels so good not to hide it anymore. So funny to see how some outfits can hide my little bump and some (like this dress) make it seem bigger. Anyway, I’m super happy about it and can’t wait to show you more!   | Dress MANGO | Heels ZARA | Bag and sunnies CHANEL | Jewelry KENNETH JAY LANE, YSL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

TRAVEL LIGHT

Although travel light was never one of my strengths but over the past years I have managed to master the art of light packing more and more. Off course the more you travel the smarter you get and the better you know what works for you what not. What really works for me is sticking to a color palette or a certain “theme” to make it more easy to make lots of combinations with minimal items. So  travel light, travel white was one of the themes I stuck to this time. White is perfect for day and perfect for night. I just switch from flats to heels, add some statement jewelry and a clutch and voila, I’m ready for a Caribbean night out.   | T-shirt ZARA | Skirt ZARA | Heels ALEXANDER WANG | Sunnies PRADA | Clutch H&M | Necklace PIECES | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

FLOWER POWER

Palazzo pants are always a favorite of mine in summer. Especially the printed version like his one, I love that it has the feel and look of a maxi skirt but with the comfort of a trouser. I wear mine in many different ways, for work I love to wear them more dressed up with a crispy white shirt and heels, on holiday’s I combine them with t-bar slippers and a cropped top. Even a plain t-shirt will do the trick. A very versitile summer garment that I don’t wanna miss. | Blouse COS | Pants ZARA | Heels DOLCE&GABBANA | Clutch H&M | Sunnies CHANEL | Watch MARC MARC JACOBS | . . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

THE LONG ONE

Sometimes you see a woman so stylish and pretty you just wanna be her and rip the clothes just right of her back. Well of course you never do but trying so achieve the same look is something I try very often. Just a few weeks ago, when shopping in Antwerp, I saw this beautifull lady who was wearing sort of the exact outfit I´m wearing now. I loved the long coat and jeans combination instandly. It looked so effortlessly chic, like she just walked out of the latest copy of French Vogue. Off course you have to make any look your own otherwise you just become a bad copy of your inspiration and yourself. I feel pretty comfortable and “me” in this outfit so I think my attempt has succeed this time.   | Trench ZARA | Top COS | Jeans H&M | Bag LOUIS VUITTON | Flats BODEN | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLACK WIDOW

More and more black is slipping into my summer wardrobe. Were it used to be a no go for me, because it alsways made me feel like a black widow wearing as much black as I do, I now feel totally different. More like dolce vita, like just walking out of an Dolce & Gabbana add. And that’s a feeling I do like so I just led that feeling be the lead.

ALL THE CLASSICS

I’ve talked about many times before, but as I get older I tend to go more and more for classic wardrobe pieces. Today it seams like I’ve put them all together. A classic jeans jacket, check. A striped tee/sweater or dress in this case, check. Strappy sandals (nude or black) check. A classic Chanel bag, double check! Well a men’s inspired watch also always does the trick when it comes to classic jewelry. Love how you can’t go wrong with staples like these. | Jacket Only Jeans | Dress TOPSHOP | Heels ZARA | Bag CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

B&W SPOTTED

White jeans never fail, style wise, but the only problem I always have is that they get dirty so damn easily. Well, I think I found the cure for that with these spotted jeans. Off course the do get dirty but it doesn’t show so quickly. And combined with black you can never go wrong. Already my favorite pants of the summer.

THE SUITCASE DIARIES

In about four weeks I’m leaving for an early summer get a way to the beautiful island of Curaçao. You can only imagine how excited I am and that’s exactly why I have started a sort of a countdown. From this week on I’m on the hunt for the perfect islands wardrobe. I’m will be digging out my closet, take notes from previous holiday pictures, shopping and flipping trough magazines to gather the perfect holiday wardrobe. One thing that I’m already sure about is that I’m sticking to my color palette packing like I did last year when we visited Santorini. A palette of whites, black, blue and turquoise is all that will be allowed in my suitcase. This makes it so much more easier to make new combination on the spot when I don’t have my whole closet to my disposal. These gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana Belucci slingbacks definitely earned their spot in my suitcase last year so they will for certain join me this year. The white skirt is also a good option and a sweater to keep me warm at night or on the plane never fails to. Let the suitcase diaries start! | Sweater ZARA | Skirt […]

THE SUMMER OF FLATS

One thing I am very sure about now is that this is the summer of flats. I have been buying more flats than heels lately and that says a lot about a avid heels wearer like myself. I, the one who sees flats as a necessity on days that I have to walk a lot or stand most of time (and sometimes I do wear heels on one of those accasions only to be very sorry later on, I guess you also know the feeling) is now wearing them with joy and really loving it. Off course it’s also great for a shoe lover like myself to have broaden my horizon, a lot more shoes that match my requirements now.

PATCHES

As a denim designer and lover I’m always on the hunt for a new pair to add to my collection or to be inspired by. My latest score is this pair with patches from H&M. Somehow they always fit me perfectly and I love how they are always on top of the trends combined with a very affordable price. To create some balance I always combine pair of statement jeans like this with some modern classics like these simple strappy heels and a men’s shirt. And now that spring has officially arrived I wanted to wear my fur stola for one last time, I love how it brings just a bit of fun in all of my outfits. For now I hope I don’t need it anymore to keep me warm and that the sun will take over from here. I’m ready!   | Stola H&M | Shirt ZARA Men | Jeans H&M | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

THE BLACK BLAZER

Ever in search of the perfect black blazer I stumbled upon this one at Zara. Almost matching all off my requirements and helped by the fact that my old one really needs a stand in every now and then, I decided to purchase this one. Only missing a button and matching hole at the front closure, which is something that can be fixed, if I ever wanted to. Worn with a white t-shirt and black skinny’s always a winner. | Blazer ZARA | Tshirt ZARA | Pants TOPSHOP | Heels H&M | Clutch HEMA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

STUDIO LINE

Since a season or 2 Zara is selling a collection called Studio. And since last year it has it’s own category on the webshop which is now the first category I check out after New In. I think everyone of you knows my preference for Zara and this Studio line only made it worse haha. My latest score is this perfect LBD, ideal of both summer and winter and perfect for the in-between weather like this early spring. I’m always a big fan of 3/4 sleeves, a little split never hurts and somehow I prefer a round neckline. And yep, this dress has all of that, the touch of blue compliment it all off. So when it comes to Zara from now, remember to check out their Studio line. . | Jacket ZARA | Dress ZARA STUDIO | Heels ZARA | Bag &OTHERSTORIES | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLUE SKIES

All good things come to end and so did my week off in the snow. On the last day there was nothing but blue skies and sunshine, such an gorgeous contrast with the white landscape. Just like this jacket is. This baby blue number is the perfect transseasonal piece. Warm enough for the cold mornings we are still have but in a shade that’s already a link to summer. Worn with thights and my furry Fendi heels all winter appropriate but also ready for jeans and sandals. I’m ready to be home again. | Jacket ZARA | Dress ASOS | Thights WOLFORD | Heels FENDI | Sunnies CHANEL | . . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

OH SO BLUE

These pants and booties were by far the most worn items that I wore last week when strolling the streets of Gaschurn. When the temperatures drop being comfortable get more and more important for me and these 2 are just all that, comfortable without giving up on style. And although I wore them with pleasure I’m also very happy that I didn’t get to wear them any more since I got back home. Even though I really love winter and I love an all snowy landscape I’m so glad to be back home were spring is already up on us and I can easily were my favorite heels without slipping. | Sweater ZARA Men | Fur stola H&M Trend | Pants H&M | Booties BUFFALO | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

SCUBA & SNOW

So while I’m back home again I still have some photo’s I would like to share with you from my recent holiday. I took lots of time to relax and neglected my blog a bit to really get the rest I was longing for for a while. Although I enjoyed every minute of it I’m also always very happy to be home again and get back to work. And what a warm welcome it was, I mean literally, from the snow we jumped right into spring with temperatures of 20 degrees. But for now, back to last week, were the weather was also much warmer then normal at this time of year. Although I liked the fact that it was so warm I could easily do without a coat I was also a bit sad that lots of the snow was already gone. Normally the landscape is all white but now a lot of green was already showing. Luckily the sun made up for a lot of it and while out for our daily walk I made the most out my scuba sweater. It’s so soft and unbelievably warm that it went perfectly with my faux leather pants that I […]

RELAX MODE

As from last weekend I’m officially in a relax mode, besides being onter the weather a short holiday is the reason for my short absence. While we speak I’m in the middel of my vacation,  a week of snow and fun with my family in Austria, at our home away from home. The ultimate time to relax and do everything (or absolutely nothing when you want to) that comes to mind. Besides some more fashionable clothes I also packed plenty of relaxed outfits. This Kate Moss for Topshop dress is still one of my favorites. At home when I’m relaxing or dressed up with heels ans some accessories, it’s the perfect transformable comfort gear. This dress is also one of the reasons why I’m so excited that Kate Moss is designing a new collection for Topshop, we have to wait until April but I’m definitely sure the wait will be worth the while.   | Dress Kate Moss for Topshop | Headband &OtherStories | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

POINT OF VIEW

Is it weird to wear open toe or sandals in February? From my point of view not but some consider it not done. Aren’t you cold or don’t you have cold feet is a question a get a lot. Usually I’m not and when I am I do wear boots or socks. Even tough I think there’s still a huge difference between wearing sandals or pumps. Whenever shoes are closed I have less problem wearing them in February then a open toe or sandals. This year is different though, these days temperatures are rising till 15 degrees, pretty comfortable if you ask me. Although I usually draw the line at 20 degrees this year I could wait any longer. I just love to wear sandals, not for comfort but just because I love the look. The things we do for fashion, right.   | Jacket H&M | Baggy leather pants ZARA | heels ZARA | Scarf Vintage CHANEL | Clutch H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

EARLY SPRING

Looks like we having a major early spring this year. The temperatures are rising to a point it’s actually pleasant again to wear heels without socks. Not that that bothers me but it’s a nice side effect. An other side effect of spring is that I always feel the need to lighten up my hair and so that’s exactly what I did last Friday. Nothing feels like spring than some fresh light colors. Yesterday I matched my clothes to my new hair and went for an all soft color palette of camel, white and soft grey. Now spring definitely feels near.   | Camel Coat ZARA | Sweater ZARA | Jeans MANGO | Heels ZARA | Bag H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

TOP WHITE

Black and white always work, no question about that, but from a distance  it can get a bit boring sometimes. To keep an black and white look interesting I always love to play with structure and materials. I love how the softness of this sweatshirt contrast with the rigid part of the embroidery. The sweater in whole is also a contrast to the coolness of the leather pants, in turn the leather pants give a good contrast to the cuddly ponyhair booties. Simple yet interesting when looking closer. Nothing boring about that right.

THE ANCHOR

Let’s say that I have a “thing” for elbow patches. I also have a “thing” for stripes, and many more now that we’ve come to mind, but lets start with the patches. I love simple sweaters, they match with anything so anytime I see one that’s matches my criteria I buy them. Now a closet full of round neck sweaters is so boring so maybe that’s were my fascination for elbow patches started. And while these anchor’s are not exactly patches they are placed at the right spot and just that one special detail detail that sets this sweater apart from all the other sweaters I have. Including all the striped ones I own. | Jacket ZARA | Sweater ASOS | Pants ZARA | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLACK, BLUE & GOLD

Sometimes your’e so happy with a new purchase but later on you feel even more happy about it. Well that’s exactly the case with these boots. I loved them since they first arrived but now they have proven to be super comfortable and giving a luxury touch to any outfit. After not wearing  boots for a long time these ones surly made me loving boots again. This time I combined them with a A-line skirt, a cable sweater and the jacket I can’t do without. Succes guaranteed. | Jacket H&M | Sweater ZARA | Skirt ASOS | Boots NELLY | Bag CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

DOUBLE LEATHER

If you would ask me 2 years ago which era schould never return fashion wise I would have said the nineties, no doubt about that. But like all things in fashion, one day you will find yourself wearing it, (for some of us) again, and loving it, again. Off course, you take the best parts out and leave the rest were it belongs, on fashions graveyard. Some things have to grow on you and somethings you like immediately. Things that deffinitely had to grow (back) on me were slippers and sneakers but wearing a skirt over pants is something I immediately loved again. It’s perfect for winter, when you don’t want to wear thights and yet not freeze your legs off. It’s also adds some grunge to my looks, just what you need sometimes to spice things up a little bit. So what do you think, are you ready to wear your skirts over pants again? After my first attempt, which was succesfull in my eyes I went for this all leather look. By keeping it all black it’s about as much gurnge as it gets for me, for now. | Sweater ZARA | Skirt OASIS | Pants H&M | […]

I GOT IT COVERED

Wearing double jackets is the way to go these days. It’s perfect for this strange winter/fall weather we have to endure this February. Kinda crazy thinking that this time last year the weather was all snow and freezing temperatures. Luckily the weather gods decided to be kind this year, almost just a kind as the fashion gods. They were for sure on my side when I scored my latest shoe obsession, these furry Fendi’s. I love how they perfectly balance this look, from ripped jeans to dressy coat, all glued together like it was meant to be. | Jacket ZARA | Blazer H&M | Sweater ZARA | Jeans ZARA | Heels FENDI | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

ALL THAT WANG

This Wang dress is one of the best purchases I did last year. Same for this jacket and heels form Zara, their both so comfortable that combine them with almost anything in my wardrobe, from dresses to jeans. Experiences like these made me realize that I should buy less and invest more. In the end, you can only spend your money once and you better spend it wise. Now let’s hope this will be a very successful project.   | Jacket ZARA | Dress ALEXANDER WANG | Bag CHANEL | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |
