How To Wear A Work Appropriate Outfit When It’s Freezing?

Hello there,

Winter is coming here.  Unfortunately, most of us can’t work from home; which means we have to get our asses off the bed, get dressed, and above all, we have to dress work appropriately.  This can be a huge undertaking when it’s 0°C outside and when it’s dark when you get out the door.  You know what I’m saying?

But just because it’s dark, and cold, and raining, and realllllyyyy difficult to be a responsible adult (ugh!), it doesn’t mean we have to go through all that unstylish.  Right? So here are some looks  that you can get some inspiration from for the next 2 months of winter – probably 3 if you’re Belgian 😉

Trench coat and pant suit

Nothing revolutionary, but boy it’s pretty!  And classy.  And empowering.  I don’t know why, but anytime I wear a trench (or a long) coat I feel way more confident.  Don’t get me started on  the pant suit…  And if you want to protect yourself from the cold, the coat will definitely do the trick.

What To Pack For A Weekend In Knokke?

Hey there,

Are you surviving the crazy heat?  I barely am.  Seriously.  When you are not at the beach, and when the temperature is above the 30°C, it is unbearable.  So what I really want right now is to spend a few days on the Belgian coast. Luckily, I will in a couple of weeks (hopefully, it won’t rain by then :p) …

And since I know I’m going to Knokke for two days, I’m already packing in my head.  I thought I would share it with you 😉

Cyber Punk: SS16 Trend

Hey there,

As you can see, this week is gonna be “Cyber Punk”.  I think it’s appropriate.  I’m super busy right at the moment.  I need to put my Robot mode ON.  Same goes for students: it’s (almost) time to cram for exams.  Girls, we need to prepare and have the look that match the oh-so-not-enjoyable-situation.
