Hooray, it’s #handbagweek!
A girl can never have to many handbags, right?! Well I have some great news for you!
Veritas gives you 20% on all handbags from 16 ’till 22 March, so what are you waiting for?! 😉
Need some inspiration? I’ve teamed up with Veritas and today I’m presenting you 3 essential bags that every woman should have, let’s take a look!
The bucket bag
Next to the cross body and tote bag, the bucket bag made it to the list of must-haves in every woman’s collection! I love it’s shape and the straps to close it, and the camel color never goes out of style.
The shoulder belt is adjustable so you can personalize it. What I also love about this bag is that inside there is a smaller bag to put all your essentials together so you immediately find what you need. You now we woman tend to make a mess of our bags 😉
The cross body bag
Like I’ve already said: a cross body bag is an essential! It’s easy to take with you and this one with the fringes is extra festival proof 😉 Fringes became a thing a few years ago already, but they haven’t left since then, and they just give an extra touch to your bag. Pastels are the trend for this spring, and as you can see in my pictures: the green fits perfectly with those colors. And of course you can adjust the length of the belt, to carry it as you wish.
last but not least: the shopper! Perfect for a Saturday in the city, doing some (grocery) shopping. It’s a stylish and economical alternative to all those plastic bags 😉 A shopper is also a perfect bag to take with you to work when you have to take food and drinks with you. The print on this shopper gives me that retro-feeling, and immediately takes me back to memories of my grandmother using a shopper just like that when I was little. This one also has an extra little bag inside to keep your keys, phone, money,… separated so you can find them quickly 😉

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! ❤
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…
