When spring comes around, it inspires a sudden craving for happy spring colors. Pretty pastels and candy shades: yes please! Unfortunately the Belgian April weather isn’t always accommodating to the beautiful spring dresses and tops in those happy shades that are impatiently waiting to come out to shine.

The first days of spring. Perfect bliss. Here’s a first spring look (hello bare ankles!) with some of my favorite basics…

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!

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.
