As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April. I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle. Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place. I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged. However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.
In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco. It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions. I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time. I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉
“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech. […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […] Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]
How are you? Have you already found something precious during the sales? If not, I might be of help. In this post, I prepared a small selection of items that you can find on sales at some of my favorite brands. I know it’s a bit late, but look at the bright side: if you find these pieces, you’ll probably get 50% by now (ooh happy face)…
I think I only put real crushes in this post, and I organised the items by categories: you have the dresses, some skirts, pants, jackets and coats and so on. Happy shopping 🙂
I hope you’re doing great! Let’s continue our SS17 series, and today we’ll turn to one of our ultimate favorite: wallflower print. The trend was seen on the Michael Kors, Balenciaga, Paul Smith, and Isabel Marant’s runway shows.

It’s a super easy trend, but oh so efficient! You can basically sport it anywhere, anytime: work, vaycay, music festival, dinner with the family, … We love it! So, where can we shop pieces to rock the trend? Let’s have a look!
The second week-end of Coachella just ended. Just like last week’s post, it’s now time to check out what the festival goers rocked during these couple of days. Oh, and don’t tell anyone but I’m kind of cheating because there are also sets of pictures from the first weekend…
Here are what some of my favorite bloggers and fashionistas wore during the second weekend of the festival: Christie Ferrari, Emelie Natascha Lindmark, Jamie Chung, Claire Rogers, Lindsi Lane, Vanessa Hudgens, and Xenia Van Der Woodsen.
Did you know it was Coachella? Just kidding, that’s all I’ve been seeing on Instagram for the past 3 days. Makes me want to be there even more… Well I can’t be there to enjoy the vibe or the music, but I can definitely enjoy the fashion.
Let’s see what the celebs and my favorite bloggers rocked during the first week-end festival, and where we can buy pieces to copy their looks 🙂
I spotted some trends: denim cut-offs, bare shoulders tops, prints, and monochrome outfits. Now, let’s have a look 😉
How are you girly girls? I’ve been extremely busy these past few weeks, hence the silent treatment. I’m really sorry about that!
Anyway, back to business! Has any of you had the chance to go to Coachella last weekend? Or will you go next weekend? I only had the chance to see pictures of the epic festival. It looked pretty cool. The fashion was also on point… Bohonpoint (hahaha – Did I mention I was tired? Did I? I’m tired.)
Now, it’s time to get ready for next weekend. So, let’s go on with the InStyle SS16 trends: New Bohemian.
How are you doing? I hope you had a great week and that you’re having an even greater weekend 😉
Here in Belgium, we had a few fabulously sunny crisp days. I love those kinds of days, and it made me long for those spring and summer days (and oh oh those summer nights 😀). And I pictured myself sitting at a nice café with some friends, recovering from an epic day at Coachella, pulling off the boho chic style.
And then I thought, wait a minute. What’s boho chic? And what’s hippie chic? Is there actually a difference between these two trends? And if yes, what are they? And then I thought, I cannot be the only person who’s a little confused about this. (Not like I lost any sleep about it, but still… ). So, it’s only natural that I came up with this article: Boho (Chic) vs Hippie (Chic). What’s the deal, trends?
Let’s start with boho chic. Boho comes from bohemian. Bohemian is:
“a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, esp. an artist or writer (New Oxford American Dictionary); or a nonconformist writer or artist who lives an unconventional life (Wordnet). A synonym would be gipsy.”
When you check various websites, such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, or InStyle, here are the key words that are used to describe the boho chic trends: late 60’s and 70’s, maxi dresses, crochet dresses, Yves Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, tie dye, paisley, floral, suzani, printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, fur vest, beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings, boots, …
The pioneers were Thea Porter (check this, this, and that out) and Talitha Getty (the featured image was taken from CBS), followed by Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in the UK, and the Olsen twins in the US.
Long dresses. Colorful pants. Fluid materials. Fun prints. We all love it. Add a touch of elegance, and you have a Spring/Summer trend: Hippie Chic. Designers such as Gucci, Etro, Pucci, Max Mara, and Dries Van Noten, were examples of actors of this seventies revival.
In this post, I will show you where you can find pieces to rock Vanessa Hudgens’ favorite style 🙂
Essentiel Antwerp has awesome maxi dresses with floral or abstract prints, that seem to be extremely nice to wear. And if you are looking for a pair of wide leg pants that do not look like pajamas, you now know where to find them!
