Looklove: Big Black Tote

28 Nov 2011

I want to start off the week with saying thanks to all of you for your sweet comments and support! I've had a week to sob and feel sad, but now I'm off to a fresh start! And what better way to do this than with some lovely inspiration?


céline tote

In the first pic you can see the 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli tote (availble at Net-a-porter in taupe). I think this one is to become a real It-bag, a classic and a keeper. It's on the top of my whislist for sure! Another one of my favourites is the Céline tote. Every morning when I'm walking to school, a girl sporting that bag passes me. You wouldn't believe the number of times I have contemplated yanking it out of her hands ;). The Zara plaited shopper is a much cheaper alternative. It has been a huge trend around the blogosphere all summer, but I still love it!
A black tote just seems to be the perfect bag for everyday. You can easily trow in all you stuff for work/school and still look classy! Plus it is timeless and slightly edgy at the same time. Anyways, the conclusion is: The Big Black tote is just as unmissable as the Little Black Dress! And on second thought, I don't own either of these items. Hmm, maybe a good excuse to plan a shopping spree?


Tea and warm socks

Tea and chocolat


Some days are better then others. But I can tell you for the last few weeks, almost all of my days have been pretty bad. My family has been going through a rough time lately, I'm busy at school, busy renovating a house with my boyfriend and working hard to keep up this blog and make it succesfull. Aside from that I'm doing my best not to lose track of my friends...

So as you can see, it's a bit more than I can handle. But I'm sure a lot of you can relate to what I'm saying right now. Which is why I think we should help and support each other! Sometimes you just need to hear from another person: Just let everything go, curl up in the sofa with a cup of tea and warm socks and watch your favourite feelgood movie (mine is the first SATC movie). Which is exactly what I'm going to do right now.


PS: and if that doesn't make you feel better, put on this song really loud while dancing crazy around the room!

Mesmerizing Manicures

18 Nov 2011

Hi lovelies!

I just thought I'd give you some weekend inspiration. That way you can try out a new manicure this weekend in case you don't know what to do! That rarely happens to me (with all the renovating, schoolwork and other obligations that always slip in), but maybe you guys are a bit more fortunate ;)




Oh! And apparently nice nails and coffee work well together!

Enjoy your weekend!


Moi: Feathers again

17 Nov 2011

Like I said on Monday, I wore my pink feather vest to school to cheer me up. Below you can see how I styled it:




Forever21 necklace and bracelet, H&M Men's shirt, striped top and parka, Zara feather vest and booties (last year), Mango Jeans, Vintage clutch

I thought it turned out quite casual this way, whereas feathers usually have the tendency to look rather festive and thus not very wearable for everyday life...

You like my take on feathers? How would you style this vest?

There's not much to say about feathers, othter than the fact that they are gorgeous and I love them. Oh, and they really brighten up a dreary Monday Morning! Which is exactly why I will be wearing my blush pink feather vest from Zara to school today ;)

What is your favourite piece to make that horrible first day of the week a little better?


New kids in town: Shiny Stuff

8 Nov 2011




Bonjour my dears!

Above you can see the result of the treasure hunting I did in Antwerp last week! Since we don't have a Forever21 in Ghent yet, I grabbed the opportunity to buy cheap and nice jewellery there with both hands ;). I bought a spikey bracelet (I had been looking for one for like ages) and a rhinestone necklaces, which is perfect to add a litlle sparkle to my daily uniform!

Do you like my new finds? And what's on your whislist lately?


Looklove: Tribal in wintertime

7 Nov 2011

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I for one had a wonderful time in Antwerp. It really reloaded my batteries, so that I could work in our house with fresh energy this weekend! Saturday our Ikea kitchen was delivered. I'm so curious to see what it will look like once installed (which will happen next week). But on to more important matters now: Your weekly dose of wardrobe ispiration!

This summer I bought two tribal skirts, but I wasn't really sure if they could be translated to a more winter-appropriate look. When I saw this picture of Taylor Tomasi, I had my answer! Just throw on some black cosy sweater, a leather jacket or cropped blazer and thigh-high boots, et voilà!


A bientôt! (Antwerp City Trip)

Hi there!

Sorry for the none-existant blogposts this week! I have been a very busy girl and can hardly spare the time to post right now! So I will keep it short and sweet ;) In a few hours I'm leaving for Antwerp to do some serious shopping with my girlfriends. We will be staying there for two days. I've been over my head in renovating and schoolwork lately so this little get-away is most welcome I can tell you!

Of course I will give you a full report once I get back!
