A few weeks ago, I caved for a pair of peach pink Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers. Just the right mix of girly and street and a perfect fit for my current pastel cravings. Obviously I was dying to try them out with some of my other pastel favorites and show them off to you. But I felt like they deserved an appropriate setting. When I passed by this lovely pink blossom while driving home from work (the adventures of… Read more »

Mondays. The thought of them rarely makes anybody happy. Although I love my job, I’m not a stranger to the occasional case of Monday Blues. In the event you are suffering from one right now, I’d thought I’d share some of my current little joys in life. So here are a few things which are sure to put an instant smile on my face, no matter the day of the week: We recently discovered a cute little flower shop just… Read more »

I told you before about my love affair with dresses. To this day, I can happily report that it is still standing strong :)  Especially on my more girly days (I understand how the mere thought of me having non girly days might baffle you… ;) ), I can get all giddy by DRESSing up (you heard me, Mr. Stinson).  Who cares if it’s just a day at the office/stroll around town/trip to the supermarket? You have all these pretty… Read more »

Finally! Spring came to visit! Bye bye endless snowy days, hello first rays of sun. I don’t know about you, but the weather totally affects my mood. Things just go easier when it’s nice out. Even sitting behind my desk and typing away. (Yes, that is basically what I do all day :) ). An open window and a sweet spring breeze bring instant inspiration. On Sunday I got such a boost by the first sun, that I spent the… Read more »

The little things in life. It’s so cheesy and said too many times, but they go such a long way. Those fresh flowers on your desk, an understanding glance between old friends or just that quiet moment in the sun. They brighten your days. Similar to the way these little things add a sparkle to your everyday life, little details can add just that tiny extra to every outfit. A fun print, interesting accessory or bright color accent can bring… Read more »

This weekend I helped cleaning out some closets. Unfortunately however, they were not my own (even though they could REALLY use a good cleanse..). Quite the opposite actually: I went to Clean Closet, and took a few pieces off other people’s hands, all the while adding some lovely extra clutter to my own wardrobe. The things one does to help others… :) But all kidding aside, don’t you just love these kinds of initiatives? Fashion victims getting together and swapping/sharing/selling… Read more »

Hope you’ve all enjoyed the Easter fun last weekend! As predicted, my two family brunches resulted in good times, a major chocolate overload and a respectable food baby. But that was not all! In addition, I was surprised with an early birthday gift (hurray for siblings that have birthdays a few weeks before your own :) ) You can imagine my delight when I tore off the wrapping paper to find the object of my latest fashion crush: the Essentiel… Read more »

On my list of top holidays, Easter certainly takes a solid second place (I’m a total sucker for Santa’s time of year, sorry about that Mr. Easter Bunny). Egg hunts, brunches and a good excuse to go chocolate crazy, what’s not to love? :) And even though the weather isn’t fully cooperating (the sun is trying its best this morning though!), the Easter atmosphere with all its yellow, pastels and candy colors creates an instant spring vibe. Love it! Personally,… Read more »

I love stories.  People, places and objects with a story fascinate me. When I was a kid I used to stare out of the car window at the houses flashing by, and imagine a life for the families living inside.  Even now, I like to indulge in the occasional people watching session from a sunny terrace (with a nice cocktail or glass of bubbles in hand, obviously :) ) and wonder about the life stories of people hurrying or strolling… Read more »

Ladies, you might know the feeling. The new spring lines hit the stores and online shops and you just cannot put off indulging in a few lovely pieces. However, confronted with a Belgian winter that just doesn’t seem to end (seriously, what is up with all that snow?) and chilly first spring days, those pretty pieces end up spending the next months lonely and neglected in your closet. That just doesn’t seem fair, now does it? And if you’re as… Read more »
