NO MORE

NO MORE

Yup, it has been a while since I updated the blog. To be fair: I don’t think I ever took a blogging break this long since I started blogging in 2008 and to be even more fair: I can’t say I feel sorry for it. […]

SUNNY NEW YORK

SUNNY NEW YORK

You might have noticed – if you follow me on Instagram – I took some personal time off and booked a trip to New York with my love. Winding down is something I think I want to do every now and then, but somehow I […]

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 new. Maybe bigger? Maybe cheaper? Maybe closer to their families? I blame it on my curious and imaginative nature, but these are the type of things I always wonder when looking at an empty space. Will it adapt to change, will it stand the test of time? Will it be loved? Or just demolished and replaced by a new building? What has it been used for and what will its new purpose be?

Talking about purpose: I’ve got a new job and I’m utterly excited about it. But slightly nervous as well. Not in a bad way, but change is something I always aim for, but on the other hand fear sometimes as well. I know I won’t be able to stop it from coming, so all I can do is either adapt to it or get left behind. And there’s something I dread even more than change and that is the feeling of being left behind. To no longer make any progress. So I came to realise that the more things change, the more they stay the same as well, because they all boil down to that one same question: do we fall back on what we know or do we step forward to something new? I always choose the latter. Change is good. To me, change is everything.

I’M WEARING A SKIRT!

I’M WEARING A SKIRT!

Black and white never fail me. Even though I tried to wear a little bit more ‘colour’ lately (blue and camel tones that is), I always get back to wearing my trusty old black and white combinations. Also something I always go for: leather jackets, […]

DENIM AND STRIPES

DENIM AND STRIPES

Denim and stripes. If you’d bump into me on the streets these days, you’d probably see me wearing an outfit that looks like this. Slightly – or in this case: VERY baggy jeans – a striped top and easy going shoes. Usually sneakers or ankle […]

SIGHT SEEING GO TO OUTFIT

SIGHT SEEING GO TO OUTFIT

Whoops, how could I forget to post this outfit? A little while ago me and my mom spent a weekend in Bruges and when the last bits of sun rays peeked through the lovely houses of the city, my mom shot these quick shots of what I was wearing. Basically, my go to outfit when sight seeing: comfy sneakers, jeans (don’t they resemble a good pair of vintage 501’s? My current favourite pair of jeans!) and a t-shirt. Can’t go wrong with that. I’m off to Belgium in a bit again, but this time we’ll be spending the weekend in a insanely cool house with friends. Follow along on Instagram or Snapchat (username @SFFTE for both) if you like :)

STEPPING BACK = MOVING FORWARD

STEPPING BACK = MOVING FORWARD

We live in a world where everything is fast, fast, fast. Our default answer to the question ‘hey, how are you doing’ seems to be ‘I’m doing fine! Super busy!’, and I’m certainly one of the people who lives a fast and furious life too. […]

12X THOUGHTS ON WEARING BLACK

12X THOUGHTS ON WEARING BLACK

Wearing black feels natural to me. It’s the colour I feel most comfortable in and even though I know there’s a lot of colours that actually do look good on me and my hair/skin tone as well, I’m not trying to change my habit of […]
