4X I ADMIRE OTHER WOMEN’S STYLE

4X I ADMIRE OTHER WOMEN’S STYLE

What I admire in other women’s personal style? Effortlessness. When I first started blogging, about 8 or 9 years ago, I remember feeling a bit insecure about the way I dressed. Not because I didn’t like my own style – it was my own style […]

PERSONAL BODY PLAN UPDATE

PERSONAL BODY PLAN UPDATE

As you have already seen in this post, I started my Personal Body Plan journey last month. A bit scared, a bit sceptical, but most of all: very excited. I received quite some questions about how I experienced this first month, so I’m trying to give […]

DOUBLE DENIM

DOUBLE DENIM

Double denim. Not sure if I’ve ever shown a double denim look on the blog, but I have to admit it’s a combination I wear pretty often. Mostly black and grey denim, but the blue double denim isn’t a combination I avoid, especially now that I’m more and more into blue denim in general. So easy to wear! Super cool with a plain black or white tee, but equally awesome with a slightly more dressy top. Great with heels, just as awesome with flats. Or sneakers, of course, like the ones I’m wearing in this outfit post. Honestly, I haven’t stopped wearing them from the moment I took them out of their box. Paired with the red details it also feels a bit patriotic to be honest, but this is certainly a look I feel totally at ease in.

Which made me wonder: I tend to describe my style as ‘comfortable’. But what does that really mean? Sweatpants are comfortable, but I’m not wearing them outside my home (ok I admit: sometimes I do when grocery shopping, but I promise I wear fancy ones ;)). Heels hurt my feet like hell, but I can still feel comfortable in them when I’m wearing them in the right setting. Just because I know they look awesome. So what defines whether a piece of clothing or an entire outfit is ‘comfortable’ or not? I think I’ve found my definition of comfy dressing: to wear something that doesn’t make me feel self-conscious all the time. This can either mean that I’m dressed for the occasion or that I don’t have to adjust my top all the time. This can mean I just absolutely LOVE all the items I’m wearing and they make me feel like I look awesome also, or this can mean an outfit that allows me to do my daily activities in without feeling my clothes.

Have you ever thought of this? How would you describe you own style?

CLOSET CLEAN OUT UPDATE

CLOSET CLEAN OUT UPDATE

So here’s the deal: I’ve been cleaning out my closet like my life depended on it (read all about it here), I kid you not. But then my life happened, lots of cool collabs happened and with the blink of an eye my carefully sorted […]

TRAVEL INSPIRATION

TRAVEL INSPIRATION

With Summer being just around the corner, I can’t wait to hop on a plane and go places. Anywhere, I really don’t even mind. Which is also kind of a problem: because there’s so much I’d love to explore, I can’t really make up my […]

THAT TRENCH

THAT TRENCH

outfit H&M Trend trenchcoat

One of the benefits of the weather changing from super sunny to well.. slightly less sunny: being able to wear the trenchcoat that has been hanging in your closet for a while. Yay! I love pairing a bit of an effortless chiq classic – like that trench, or that cute little bag – with a pair of super baggy, ripped jeans and sneakers. So that’s what I did.

Now back to work, I already killed another 7am workout this morning, and I have to admit that I’m totally into working out before work right now. The moment the alarm clock goes off isn’t my favourite moment of the day, even though I consider myself a morning person, but the moment I get out of the shower, hop onto my bike to go to the office.. priceless.

INTERIOR: ELEGANCE

INTERIOR: ELEGANCE

As much as I love rough materials in interior, I feel like I’m gravitating towards slightly more elegance for my home now. Not as clean and minimal as I used to like (still love that though..) but somehow it feels much more ‘livable’ and cosy. […]

LOOKING FOR CONTRASTS

LOOKING FOR CONTRASTS

Contrasts. Somehow I’m always looking for contrasts in my outfits. In this case: wearing a pencil skirt with sturdy leather combat boots and a leather jacket. But let me talk about those boots for a minute: it’s not much of a secret that I’ve always […]
