STYLIST

One of the best parts about my job is that I get to watch a lot of fashion shows. Not live, as I only tend to get few invitations, but I always have a front-row seat from behind my own desk. Attending a real live Chanel show is still my biggest wish (fashion wise) but that’s a total different story. For now I just wanted to tell you about what I have learn from watching fashion shows. On and off the runway it’s all one big pile of inspiration, a great learning school if you know how and were to look. Because, for the most of us all the looks we get to see are totally out of reach, budget wise, but styling wise there is al lot to learn. And the best part, it’s all for free. Like for example the way I’m wearing this scarf. I immediately fell for this look when I saw it on the Burberry runway 2 years ago. And I still love it now. And this is just one of them. So next time you watch a fashion show, real live or online, watch closely and release your inner stylist.   | Dress ZARA | […]

SALE SCORE

Sale, you either love it or hate but you can’t hide from it. And that’s exactly why I’ve turned myself into a sale lover. Back in the days, when we could only shop in stores haha, I really hated this time of year. Messy stores and crowded streets, not my type of shopping. But ever since I started shopping online I also started to love the sales. Nothing beats sale shopping out of the comfort of my own home or office. And over time I have learned a few tricks as well. For one, I have subscribed myself to the mailing-list of all my favorite stores so I know exactly when the sale starts and when to get the best discounts. Then, when I spot something I love I always ask myself 1 question; would I buy it if it was not on sale? If, the answer is NO than don’t do it. You will not be happy in the end. And last but not least, stick to the basics and things you are sure of to wear over and over again. This way you would be buying anything just because it was on sale. And so that’s basically how this […]

DRESSCODE

Can you wear a coat as a dress? Of course you can. Just simply put on a pair of opaque tights, add a belt and a pair of fabulous heels. No one will notice the difference.   | Coat and Sweater ZARA | Tights WOLFORD | Heels SOPHIA WEBSTER | Sunnies PRADA |

FASHION-VINTAGE

Me and some of my clothes we go a long way back, mainly because I’m so sentimental and recently also because I want to save some of my stuff for when Chloé gets older. But last december, as I took a good look at my overflowing closet I decided it was about time to let some of it go. So I teamed up with the girls from Fashion-Vintage and Designer-Vintage.com to sell some of my pre-loved stuff. So if your interested take a look at my boutique and buy, buy, buy. I will be adding some more pieces over the next couple of days so keep an eye on my social media of you want to be the first to know! xo Hanneke

JOIN THE CLUB

The first time I spotted this jacket it immediately made me think of the Pink Ladies from Grease. So if I ever wanted to start my own Girl Squat this jacket might as well be our uniform. Because if you’re a part of our squat you A; love black and B; love shoes. So if you feel the same join me 😉   | Jacket NIKKIE | Sweater ZARA | Pants H&M | Heels ZARA | Clutch H&M |

SHADES OF GOLD

So then it’s already time to write the last post of this year. I just can’t believe that this year is almost over, so yes, time does fly when you’re having fun. The past year was nothing but great for me, being a mama was on my wishlist for a very long time and it has been such a blessing to be one for a whole year arround. Nothing has ever felt quite like this before, not even my first Chanel purchase can match this if you know what I mean. And the best part of all is that I finally feel like I’m in control. A year ago I never imagined myself balancing it all, a family, a career, a blog and a social life. It all seemed just to much and I decided for the first part to just focus myself on the important things in life, my family and my own wel beiing. But, once I got the hang of it and I was feeling more in control and at ease with my life something really started to itch. Like so many times in life, you don’t know what you’ve got untill it’s gone. I realized that […]

ALL IN TWO

For me Christmas is all about old and new traditions. Old traditions like dressing up and having dinner with my family and friends and new traditions in the making. As a mama I love to start new traditions, that hopefully Chloé will remember and maybe continue once she gets older. One of the new traditions we are starting this year is adopting the typical American way of spending Christmas morning opening up presents underneath the Christmas tree. And off course we do it in style. No old pyjama‘s or washed out lounge-wear for us, but brand new, all black, easy going lounge-wear. For me it’s a comfortable 2 piece from Zara and for Chloé a cool onesie from H&M. Because creating a tradition is one thing but looking good while doing so is just as important to me, especially when pictures are being taken. Can’t wait to look back in about 10 years from now. Then, I want to wish you all a fabulous Christmas with all of your loved ones and all of your favorite traditions. Hopefully you will also enjoy some great memories and traditions in the making.   xo Hanneke     Me | Sweater and pants […]

PIECES DEUX

One of the best investments I made this season, this 2-piece by Filippa K. From the moment I first spotted it on a store mannequin to the day I purchased it at the Filippa K store in Antwerp, it was on my mind. And from the day I bought it until this very day it has proven to be the great buy that I tough it would be. Worn together it makes the perfect winter dress, worn with heels for a night out or with boots to the office. And separately the sweater works great with jeans or any other trouser or skirt (as seen here). And the skirt works great with a leather jacket and sneakers for a more comfortable day-time look. All together it’s the most versatile set of clothing I ever had. I just found out it comes in 2 colors, so maybe………………….   | Sweater FILIPPA K | Skirt FILIPPA K | Heels ZARA | Clutch BERSHKA |

BACK TO BLACK

Needless to explain myself, right. Black is just my all time favorite color (or technically shade) to wear and now that it’s winter again I somehow feel even less restrained wearing it on a daily basis. | Sweater H&M | Jacket H&M | Pants ZARA | Bag VINTAGE |

STARS

‘Life’s a party, but it’s your job to hang out the bunting! So true if you ask me. And the bunting? Just hanging in my closet! I believe every day is a party and nothing more fun than getting ready to party. Most of the time I like that evermore than the party itself. Or just wear a beautiful dress on any given day, just because I can. Because, we live in a free country were woman can wear whatever they want. Even a party dress in the middle of the day, combined with a sweater and a denim jacket. I love it! Het leven is een feestje, je moet alleen zelf de slingers ophangen. Wat mij betreft helemaal waar. En die slingers? Die hangen bij mij gewoon in de kast! Wat mij betreft is het elke dag feest, niets leuker dan mezelf lekker optutten voor een feestje. Vaak vind ik dat nog leuker dan het feestje zelf. Of gewoon een mooie jurk aantrekken, gewoon omdat het kan. Omdat wij in een vrij land wonen waar je als vrouw mag dragen wat je wilt. Zelfs een avondjurk midden op de dag met een trui en een spijkerjack. Ik hou ervan! | Dress RECLAIMED VINTAGE […]

MELLOW YELLOW

Yellow. I used to hate this this color so much, and only because my mom said it sooted me. Much rather I wore pink, like the person I most looked up to, my big sister. These days, yellow is one of my favorite colors and even my man, kid and house get their shair. Luckily not reluctantly. Mother are always right, in the end…….     | Coat ZARA | Top COS | Pants COS | Heels MANGO | Bag CHANEL |
