QUICK OUTFIT UPDATE

QUICK OUTFIT UPDATE

For those who are following me on Instagram, might have seen I spent the weekend in Bruges with my lovely mom (who also turned out to be a great location spotter for this very outfit shoot, have to give her some credits for that). I […]

MY PERSONAL BODY PLAN

MY PERSONAL BODY PLAN

Fitness for me has never really been about getting rock hard abs or toned legs. I’ve always been super active and can’t remember not practicing any kind of sports since I was four years old. I loved the team aspect of playing ‘korfball’ (let’s call […]

NIKE AIR PRESTO ULTRA FLYKNIT

NIKE AIR PRESTO ULTRA FLYKNIT

The Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit has been released this month and I was lucky enough to find this bright mango/bright crimson pair on my desk. Somehow, I’ve never been into bright colours really. Even though I can really appreciate a pop of colour on others, if something is availably in black (or the occasional grey/navy) or white, I’d always opt for that version. But as you can see: I made an exception for this pair. They truly are one of the most comfy pairs I own. And look how well they work with the white/grey outfit. Love!

SHOPPING FOR STATEMENT PIECES

SHOPPING FOR STATEMENT PIECES

A little while ago I discussed the 5 Piece French Wardrobe principle in this article after cleaning out my closet (I’m still in the process btw.. I’m certain I can take out much more!). I mentioned the items that I consider true essentials in my […]

SHINING IN ABSENCE

SHINING IN ABSENCE

My goodness, it has been a while since I blogged! So before I start my rant about how much I love the flowy fabrics in this outfit, I’d like to explain a little bit about me shining in absence for the past two weeks. Nothing […]

NORMCORE IS AS DEAD AS JON SNOW

NORMCORE IS AS DEAD AS JON SNOW

Normcore to me is as dead as Jon Snow. To be honest, with the whole closet cleaning things I’ve been doing for the past few weeks (no, I’m not cleaning all the time, I want to turn thinking about what I add/throw a out to become a habit, and developing habits – as you might know – take time ;)), one of the things I wanted to achieve is to find a way to rethink my entire wardrobe and only leave pieces in there that I absolutely adore. I wanted to create the perfect – at least to me – wardrobe, so getting dressed in the morning is super easy (to be honest, on work days, I’m done in a minute, but still). Also, I wanted to explore the magical world of dressing with more than just my black/grey/white basics and tried to find ways to add some ‘mmmphff’ to my current wardrobe. An little extra. Something along the lines of a bold statement piece. Could be a jacket, could be a bag.

But here’s the thing. I just like basics! I can’t get enough of them and could easily wear those so-called normcore outfits for the rest of my life. I kid you not. Exciting? Not really. Innovative? Certainly not. Interesting? Definitely, yes! So for those who watched Game of Thrones yesterday: to me, normcore is – despite what other might say – as dead as Jon Snow. What do you think?
