How To Wear The White Shirt and Blue Jeans Combo? Six Ways To Style These Iconic Pieces

Hey everyone,

I hope you’ re doing well!

In this post I’ll show you how you can pair two iconic pieces that you surely have in your closet: blue jeans and a white button down shirt.  The point is you don’t need many different clothes to be stylish.  And as a matter of fact, you probably wear the same pieces quite often (and denim is surely in the top 5, right?).  So wouldn’t it be refreshing to pair your go-to pieces differently to create 6 distinctive looks?

How To Dress To Go From The Beach To The Street?

Hey there,

How are you?  I hope you’re all going great.  I don’t know about you, but gosh I really need some sun right now!  For those of you who are not in Belgium, you should know that it’s been basically rain, grey sky, a little more rain, and some grey sky again for a month (give or take).  Put another way, we are in November!  So no wonder that I’m craving some holidays.  I have to hold on for two more weeks, and then I’m off (happy face)!

So, if like me you still have some summer trips ahead, this post is for you :). I put together 4 looks that will get you from the beach straight to the street!  Sometimes it is just a pain in the a** to pack an outfit in your beach bag for after the beach; or – even worse – to go back to your hotel or apartment to get changed before hitting the streets for a quick bite to eat, for a gelato, or for some shopping.  Wouldn’t it be easier if one single outfit could do the trick?  Yes, definitely.  Let’s have a look!

Hello girly girls,

How are you doing today?  In this post, you’ll find a small selection of pieces if you want to rock one of the SS17 trends, namely the Pink Parade edition.  And, let’s be honest, who (like, who) wouldn’t want to wear pink all season long?  I love wearing pink (and not only on Wednesday 😉 ).  Besides, it seemed to work pretty well for Elle Woods right?

If you still have doubts about that very girly colour, you should know that it was seen on the Hermès, Michael Kors, Sacai, and Sies Marjan shows.

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Comfort Zone Edition

Hello girls,

How are you?  In this post I prepared a small selection so that you can sport the “Comfort Zone” trend.  I love some sequins, and intricate pieces.  But sometimes, I just want to wear neutral colours and sleek lines.  Something easy and practical – dirty word in fashion, but sometimes that is just what we want.

The trend was seen on several shows during the fashion month: Kenzo, Stella McCartney, Valentino, and Balenciaga.

Let’s see where we can shop some very comfortable (but still very very stylish) pieces 🙂 Continue reading “How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Comfort Zone Edition”

How To Dress Like Emma Stone in La La Land?

Hello there!

How are you doing? Are you enjoying Spring? I know I am 🙂

I was wondering, have you seen La La Land? I saw it in February, and I remember that when I got out of the theater I was all giddy. I wanted to dance, and I wanted to sing, and I wanted summer, … and I wanted to wear some colorful, flowy dresses. Just like Mia. I also want Ryan Gosling, but I think the “wearing colorful, flowy dresses” part will be easier.

I truly believe that an outfit can change your mood (Ryan Gosling could do that too). When I wear black, I mean business. When I wear fun prints, I feel quirky. When I wear colors, I feel happy. When I wear dresses I feel feminine. If we follow that logic, if I wear colorful dresses, I’ll feel happily feminine, right? Sounds awesome! Who wouldn’t want to feel that way?

How To Wear The Oversized Sweater?

Hello girls,

If you live in Belgium (and I think it’s the same in Europe), you know that lately it’s been freezing!!! You’ve experienced temperatures that make you want to stay in bed (granted, I personally don’t need low temperatures for that.  But I’m sure there are some reasonable people out there – you know like adults – who feel that way). It is so cold that you’re even afraid to step foot outside. You’d rather stay at home, wrap yourself in warm blankets, and drink hot chocolate in front of a Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars marathon. And that, all day long… Isn’t it how you feel? Because it is how I feel (probably too often). And I can’t believe it’s just me. It cannot be just me, right?

Anyway, even if we wish we could stay home, well it’s not really within the realm of possibility! We have to be a grown-up and take our responsibility (yuck!). We have to get out of bed. And get dressed. And brave the cold. But do we need to be cold and look like crap? Oh hell to the no! One may think that it’s kind of hard to stay stylish with temperatures below the 0°C, but one would be wrong. When it’s crazy cold like that, I like to bundle up in huge knitted sweaters. And it’s not such a bad thing fashion-wise. Oversized sweaters (and sweater dress) are fashionable, so you can totally look super stylish when rocking one of these and still brave the cold.

Hello girls,

How are you doing?

Since it’s getting pretty cold right now, I thought it was time to see where we can shop some pieces that could keep us warm.  What do we want?  Faux fur.  Velvet.  Striking jackets or capes.  Statement jewels.  That’s the Russian Baroque trend, ladies!

Let’s see what we can find 🙂

Essentiel-Antwerp: a faux fur coat (available in different prints), a faux fur scarf, a bead encrusted necklace, a brooch, and a faux fur backpack.
