Must have: a spring jacket! But you could never guess where it’s from…

Sun is out and so am I! 😉
Isn’t feeling the sun on your face such an amazing feeling? Summer I am so ready for you! 😀 But because it’s only spring, and I live in Belgium, I needed a light jacket to wear when it’s still a bit chilly. And as you can see I found the perfect one! But: you’ll never ever guess where it’s from… 😉


DAMART!
That’s right, Damart! 😉 They have a reputation of being only for “older people”, nevertheless they actually have quite a few pretty stylish items you can wear at any age. And this jacket is proof, isn’t it beautiful?!
At a press-event a few weeks ago I met a wonderful lady from Damart who was presenting the new collection to us, and I immediately fell in love with this jacket. To be honest I couldn’t believe that Damart had such a beautiful collection…



Because of the floral print I chose simple items to create an outfit.
In this case it was an easy task, just a simple white top and jeans and the look is complete.
Because of the pink pastel that matches the colors in the jacket, this Furla bag is the perfect one!
And of course the golden chain matches my golden Komono watch 😉

Top – Mango | Jeans – Stradivarius | Sneakers – Nike | Bag – Furla | watch – Komono

So as you can see a visit to Damart when you’re out shopping is definitely worth the while 😉
What do you think about this look? Are you as surprised as I was? Will you visit Damart some time?
Let me know! 😉

Veritas #handbagweek

hello
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.

The shopper
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 😉

The perfect tutu-outfit for NYE

hello
I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas as much as I did! I’ve spend a lovely time with my family and friends and received some amazing gifts. #blessed
With “part one” of the Holidays over, it’s time to look forward to new year’s eve 😉
I’ve been looking forward to sharing my NYE outfit with you for weeks now!

As you might have noticed I’m a real tutu-lover! I found the perfect black tutu at Tutu Shop. It’s an online shop but they have a pop-up shop at Wijnegem Shopping Center at the moment. For the girls living in Antwerp, make sure to stop by, it’s like walking into tutu heaven 😀
This midi length tutu is made of several layers of high quality fabrics and it’s so comfortable to wear!

I thought for NYE I could spice it up a little 😉
So I made this look with a black lace body and leather jacket, both from h&m.
Nothing wrong with a sexy outfit while dancing the night away, right? 😉

I really love this outfit! I found the perfect shoes to wear underneath at CKS. It’s one of my favorite Belgian brands and I was crushing over these shoes for a long time already 😀 So I decided to buy them as an early Christmas present for myself 😉

How do you like this outfit?
Would you wear it?
And do you love tutu’s just as much as I do?
Special thanks to Isabelle from Tutu Shop!

PS: don’t forget to have fun! Tutu’s are great for twirling 😉
Let’s dance the night away on NYE! See you next year 😉

my Christmas party look with Skechers

hello
I’m soooo ready for the Holidays!! How about  you?
Seems that either you’re a Christmas-person or you’re not…
I’m definitely a Christmas person!
No surprise I’ve been planning my outfits for weeks already 😉
photo-18-12-2016-13-07-54
Everybody stresses a little bit over their outfit(s) for the Holidays, yes even you 😉 , so it’s always a relieve when you find that perfect outfit you were looking for!
As an early Christmas present I got these amazing Skechers! They make me feel as if I’m walking on air, and they look good too. Who says sneakers are only for practicing sports? You know I love to combine my sneakers and a fancy outfit! 😉 So when I saw them I immediately knew I would wear them this Christmas.

These black sneakers with gold details are party proof for sure and they match my outfit and bag perfectly!


The dress I found in & Other Stories thanks to Anne-Catherine 😉 I love that it looks like it’s a simple black dress with a little sparkle at first…

But when I turn around, you see the (sexy?) detail of the open back.
A lace bralette is perfect to wear underneath, I got mine at h&m.
 
Would you wear sneakers like these Skechers underneath a party-outfit? 😉

These brogues are made for walking…

helloI 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?

Zalando creative content icon: the new professional look

hello
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! ❤

life is a party, and the world is your dancefloor

hello

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…
