DONE WITH SHOPPING SPREES?

DONE WITH SHOPPING SPREES?

I honestly can’t remember the last time I went on a shopping spree. ‘Shopping spree’. A word I used to associate with all kinds of positive feelings, now something that I can’t seem to bother too much about. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy a […]

JOTTING DOWN THOUGHTS

JOTTING DOWN THOUGHTS

Every now and then I just like to sit down and jot down some thoughts. Thoughts that slowly but certainly turn into a story that sometimes I share on this blog and on many occasions I don’t (true story, my phone is filled with stories/thoughts […]

A TASTE OF DOUBLE DENIM

A TASTE OF DOUBLE DENIM

It’s a funny thing: taste. Taste in food. Taste in interior. In people. In art. In friends. But also: in style. If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be wearing a light blue double denim ensemble, without any black (those shades are very dark red, I promise) and with blush toned shiny loafers I probably would have laughed in your face. Not me. Never will I move away from either wearing all black. Never will I wear a pair of fussy shoes like these. Yet here I am. Even though I’m fully aware of the fact that this outfit is by no means a very progressive outfit, nor does it stand out in a crowd, but somehow to me it still feels like a step forward. Or at least a step in another direction, and as you know: I’m always interested in exploring.

And exploring is exactly what I’ll be doing this Summer fashion-wise. I’m not sure if I’ll ever become the type of person that will wear the craziest things (you should have seen my when I was younger though.. I explored quite a bit ;)), but now that I’m slowly but certainly starting to feel a bit more comfortable about myself, I feel the urge to start playing around with my style a little bit simultaneously. I might add a dash of colour every now and then and move away from the neutrals a liiittle bit. I might even start wearing pieces that are a bit more figure hugging than I’m used to (wow, did I just say that? Yes, I did). I want dresses. Cute little tops. I’m starting my quest for a nice bathing suit. I might start exploring the parts of myself that have been kept hidden for many, many years, and as usual: I cannot wait.

ALL IN THE DETAILS

ALL IN THE DETAILS

Looking at these pics makes me want to hop on the next plane to New York and spend some more time in the city that never sleeps. Reality is that work had to be done, our wonderful new house needs to be finalised and not-sleeping […]

FITNESS UPDATE: HOW’S PBP LIFE?

FITNESS UPDATE: HOW’S PBP LIFE?

Let me get straight to the point with the article: I’m doing well! I’ve received a couple of questions over the past few weeks about whether I’m still following the Personal Body Plan program, so I thought it would be nice to give you an […]

POLKADOTS AND RUFFLES (!)

POLKADOTS AND RUFFLES (!)

I honestly cannot believe it’s mid October and we were still able to enjoy the sunny weather this weekend like Fall/Winter is not around the corner (today’s is pretty cold actually, but let’s not go into details too much ;)). These pics were taken a bit earlier though, but that doesn’t make them any less fun: it’s me, wearing polkadots (!) and ruffles (!), two things I usually tend to avoid.

In general, I’ve noticed that I’m gravitating towards slightly more feminine shapes lately. As much as I love my ripped jeans/chunky knits/bulky shoes combo, I’m no longer shying away from trying different silhouettes any longer. Which is nice, but also makes me question my current wardrobe more and more (we all know that ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ feeling, right)? I’m usually pretty ok with my wardrobe and the choices I make: I’m completely fine with not being the most notable out of the bunch and love my understated colour palette. But I do think I’m ready to try something new (says the girl who just ordered 3 pairs of uber basics jeans: black, grey and dark blue, I kid you not: the were necessary, I promise). So I’m curious: what do you think I should add to update my wardrobe instantly, but stay true to my style anyway?

CHANGE IS GOOD

CHANGE IS GOOD

There’s something about empty, abandoned houses. To me they stand for change. They always give me this slightly eerie feeling, while on the other hand I love to see traces of people who lived their lives in their homes but now moved on to something […]

THE LISBON LOOK PART IV

THE LISBON LOOK PART IV

Lisbon look number IV is something I’d never imagine myself wearing: a floral (!) playsuit (!) with frills (!). And visual waist line (!). Oh Lord, have mercy. But even though I’m by no means a Marie Kondo fan, the fact that this happy number […]
