Getting dressed in November. The key here is: layers. And oversized sweaters :). That’s what I love about fall. You can walk outside with just a sweater, or with a cute shirt and a long coat. In winter, it’s more complicated to get out without a full on onion look. So, let’s enjoy it while we can 😉
How are you adjusting to fall? 🙂 Are you excited? I know I am. At least I am now, I’ll probably be less excited when it’s all grey and rainy and dull. But right now, I’m over the moon. I can’t stop thinking about hot chocolate (don’t let me fool you, I never stop thinking and never stop getting excited about hot chocolate), pecan pie, and warm sweaters…. I’m sure I’m not the only one – yeah, you know who you are 😀
One word for October: layers. In Belgium, you can have absolutely any weather imaginable: warm and cold; dry and wet; summery and wintery. Hence, you gotta leave your house *prepared*. The best solution, as far as I’m concerned, is thus layering my dears!
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?
I hope you’re all doing great. It’s almost September, and to me September has always had a particular vibe: new school year with the new notebooks and pens, new trends, new backpack, new people, … And I don’t know why, but I always feel inspired in September. Or if I want to change something in my routine or my lifestyle, it is more likely to happen (and go well) if I do that in September. It’s probably because it’s “back to school” month, which promises more structure than the summer… Am I the only one?
Anyway, I gathered here 30 looks we can try for the upcoming month. It’s a mix of summer and fall looks, given that we can totally experience both (or even all 4) seasons in a month. Let’s get inspired!
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!
In this post, I gathered for you for me for us 31 looks to try in August. Similarly to the post I wrote for July, I tried to come up with day looks, that we can quite easily reproduce, i.e. looks composed of basics.
How are you doing girls? Are you surviving the heat? Because I barely am. This is ridiculous… To be honest, this week I’ve been super lazy. I haven’t been able to achieve anything except getting out of bed and dragging myself to work. I haven’t put in much effort to my outfits, nor my beauty routine and don’t even ask me about sports, I haven’t done a single workout session… I hope I’ll be better next week!
But this unbearable heat got me thinking though. As I said, I haven’t put a lot of effort in creating cool (pun intended) looks. But maybe it would have been easier if I had a sort of fashion calendar. So I gathered for you (and for me, definitely for me too) 31 looks to try in July. I try to come up with a list of day looks that were season appropriate, and mostly composed of relatively basic pieces, so that we can get inspired without necessarily having to buy something new (although I don’t have anything against that concept :D). I also tried to have work appropriate looks for the weekdays, if like me, you’re not on holidays.
First week – July 1st to July 9th:

To compose these looks, you need these relatively basic pieces:
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 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.
