Thanks to Duifhuizen tassen & koffers I got to review a bag from their party selection for the upcoming holidays.
I chose this supercute Supertrash bag, partyproof for sure!
The combination of black & gold is always a winner, especially ’round the Holidays.
The croco-print, the subtle logo, the golden lock and chain… I really love the classy details on this bag!
You can really see and feel this bag is made of quality materials.
I am a girl who always drags along a huge bag, because I always want to carry loads of (unnecessary) stuff with me 😀 #typicalgirlproblems
So I don’t own many smaller bags because I always felt I couldn’t take enough stuff with me…
This Supertrash bag is tested and approved! It fits my wallet, keys, a bottle of perfume, a mini deodorant and even my tangle teezer (comb)! And in the middle it has an extra compartment with a zipper which makes it easy to keep the smaller stuff, like your lipstick, separated so you don’t have to “dive” in to your bag to search for it. 😉
Extra plus: it keeps its form, even when there’s a lot of stuff in it!
As you can see this beauty matches my sneakers perfectly!
The perfect finishing touch to my outfit, right? 😉
Do you love this bag as much as I do? 😉
Still looking for a present? Or you want to treat yourself? Make sure to visit Duifhuizen Tassen & Koffers, they have an amazing range of bags & suitcases so you’ll find something you like for sure!
I have this thing with shoes… as you might have noticed 😉
Thanks to Nelson Schoenen I now have these beautiful brogues added to my collection!
In my previous blog post about restyling the professional look you’ve already seen these beauties pass by. Not only are they a perfect replacement for heels at work, they are also great to create a casual look. Wear them with jeans or even with a dress, everything is possible and don’t forget: comfortable 😉
These brogues are from the brand Gabor. To be honest to me this brand had a bit of an old fashioned reputation…
But to the contrary this brand is very hip and trendy when I took a closer look!
The great thing about Gabor is that you buy a high quality trendy shoe. Brogues tend to be very narrow when it comes to fitting and if the materials aren’t right your feet will hurt instantly. Been there, done that… Thanks to the qualitative materials, good sole and great fitting my feet didn’t hurt at all when I started wearing these.
I would strongly advise you to buy these shoes half a size up. Normally I wear a 38 (EU size) but these are a 38,5.
I got these one from Nelson Schoenen. I already knew them because they have a store in Breda (Holland) where I go shopping a lot 😉 My best friend even bought her wedding shoes there!
It was the first time I tried their web shop and I honestly must say it was a great experience. When it comes to customer service our Dutch neighbors know how to treat their clients. And they even have their own store brand of shoes which are stylish and affordable. So if you’re looking to shop (offline or online) Nelson Schoenen is your go-to store.
Seems I’ve been living in these shoes, haha! 😉
Do you like brogues? And how do you style them?
This is my entry for the Zalando Creative Content Icon Award.
I thought about what I could send in, and what reflects me and my life.
Since July I have a new job in human resources and as a girl on sneakers I’m confronted with the conservative “office clothing style”. Women in two-piece suits, dresses, tights and heels: you know what I’m talking about.
Although there is nothing wrong with that, I thought I’d take a spin on this classic professional look and give it an anno 2016 modern feeling. Curious yet? Let’s have a look!
First of all let me start with the shoes, because brogues are totally back! And as a girl living on sneakers that’s not such a bad thing 😉 For me this is the perfect alternative to match a professional look. These beauties I got from Nelson Schoenen‘s online webshop (I’ll introduce you to them next time extensively in a new blogpost) and are from the brand Gabor.
Nothing wrong with matching a statement clutch to your outfit, life isn’t meant to be boring 😉
And to be honest, when you’re going in to meetings all day you don’t need to drag along your big bag all day.
An Iphoria clutch to carry the essentials, check!
I added a hat, not because you can wear it in the office all day. But when you go out during your lunch break a hat can make sure your hair doesn’t get wet and messed up here in rainy Belgium. Or if you’re lucky and the sun is out, it protects your eyes 😉 win win! Found this one at Primark.
Now more about the clothes. I chose a black and white look because whatever year it is, black and white never go out of style. And it’s what you do with it, how you mix & match that makes an outfit powerful.
Wearing joggers to work is my new thing! Wait what… joggers?!
Oh yes, JOGGERS! These pants from Only have a more classic cut and look but have the feeling and comfort of a jogging pants. What’s not to love?
A classic white blouse from Costes and my all time favorite black blazer from Zara are a perfect match for this look.
And because of the non-traditional cut of this blazer: non centered, longer model with the look of rolled up sleeves, this is yet again a modern twist to a classic item.
Last but not least I would advise you: do not over accessorize! Nobody likes to sit next to a colleague who’s bracelets or earrings cling every time they move an inch. #sorrynotsorry
A watch on the other hand is the perfect basic accessory to wear at work and comes in handy to check if it’s almost lunchtime yet 😉 I got this Daniel Wellington beauty for my birthday, lucky me!
So there you have it, my office look! Do you like it? Would you wear this?
Let me know, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
And as from now: fingers crossed for me winning this Zalando award 😉
PS: special thanks to my blogger-bestie That girl with her blog for taking these pictures! ❤
As you might have read I’ve been to the launch of the new Tea Time Club Winter Collection by An-Katrien from Teacups & Dresses.

What I’m wearing
Beanie – Tea Time Club Winter Collection by Teacups & Dresses
Scarf – New Look
Coat – CKS
Special thanks to Jolien for shooting this pictures at Strijp-S during our press trip to Eindhoven.
in September I was invited to a new blogger-event at my favorite multi brand store SKM.
As you might know, since our last event there I started working at SKM occasionally to help people pick their very own new favorite outfit. But this September SKM came up with a new an innovative concept “Try-Out-Fit“.
But what does this mean? Well, you can go online to www.skm.be/tryoutfit and get your online styling.
How does it work? You select your style, your favorite brands and fill in your sizes.
Once SKM receives your request one of the SKM Shop Assistants goes into the store and finds you 2 outfits per chosen style. These outfits will be waiting for you in store at the date and time of your choice. Of course the assistants are always there to help you if you need another size, or if you want to change something in your styling,… And you don’t have any purchase obligation! This service is free and you don’t have to buy anything if you don’t want to!
So they selected an outfit for me, similar to what I’m wearing in my pictures. I’m a blogger and I always want to do my own thing 😉 so I changed it a little bit, but to be honest it’s exactly the style they laid out for me.
I really love this casual outfit, it fits perfectly with this urban location at Strijp-S in Eindhoven.
What I’m wearing?
T shirt – Supertrash (SKM) | Blazer – Zara | Jeans – Vero Moda (SKM)
Bag- Even & Odd (Zalando) | Sneakers – Primark | Watch – Oozoo (Brandfield)
Special thanks to Jolien for taking these pictures!
Would you try out a concept like this?
Yesterday I went to the Teacups & Dresses new collection and perfume release party.
An Katrien Casselmans, well known for being on the tv-show “Pink Ambition, isn’t a blonde barbie airhead.
This teacher, businesswoman, blogger and designer knows what she does and she does it well!
Maintaining a down to earth mentality makes her even more sweet.
How amazing did she look?!
Make sure to check out her blog and webshop on:
Off course my blogger-BFF Jolien was there with me!
Did you see this awesome long mint tutu skirt I was wearing?!
It’s another beauty from the ByCharmy tutu collection.
My friend and bosslady Charmy James attended the event as well wearing one of her beautiful pink tutu’s.
More about the Teacups & Dresses collection on the blog SOON!
The silence is over… I’m sorry it’s been a bit quiet over the summer!
I’ve been very busy with my new job and I admit I took some time just to relax and enjoy the weather as well… But now as school just started, it feels like it’s also the start of a new blog-year 😉
After relaxing it’s time to get back on track!
But don’t forget to enjoy yourself because…
My friend and talented DJ Dimitri Wouters is back again with his new #lifeisaparty collection!
“For the 4th year in a row I’m releasing a #lifeisaparty t-shirt collection. It’s been my life motto for years. This year I had my doubts… Can I promote this statement, with all that is happening throughout the last months? The answer is unquestionable: YES!” – Dimitri Wouters
This year he decided to promote this collection together with a team of bloggers (including me, YAY!) with an amazing #lifeisaparty promotion video.
