OUTFIT | SPORTY IN VELVET

IWhat better way than to combine fashion items in the most comfortable way possible? Matching these pretty velvet trousers with sneakers makes the outfit less loaded. And boy, do I love looking fly and feeling good at the same time.

These are the Polette sunglasses I've ordered with prescription. I absolutely love to switch between glasses and still being able to see everything. 

More posts are coming soon but I'm trying to settle down a little bit in Antwerp first. At the moment I invest every free moment in catching up with friends and buying/installing furniture. 

Have a nice day! 

What am I wearing 

Sweater - H&M
Shirt - Bershka 
Pants - Zara
Sneakers - Adidas 
Watch - Daniel Wellington

FOCUS | TRENDING AT C&A

C&A, the famous fashion brand is well known for its awesome and super handy basics but I have to admit, everytime I walk in there, I’m surprised by their collections. Everytime they manage to get in some great key items for every type of woman there is.


What strikes me even more is that unlike some other brands, C&A truly has a heart for nature and humanity. The fact that they are market leader in organic cotton means a lot to this planet and how fashion is evolving. And I really applaud brands like C&A for investing more in the planet and the people who live on it. You’ve probably heard this one before but it is true: we only have one earth.


Not only can you find good quality basics at this store. They also have a big party collection and recently they’ve launched a big denim campaign with jeans for every day. That way, they create the possibility to dress women for work, the after work party and the after party. Hooray!


Since fall is coming pretty close, I have some tips for you on what will be trending this AW.
First of all, high waists are totally back. Show off those curvy or not so curvy legs in a high waisted pants. Your legs look way longer and you can combine it endlessly. Another big, upcoming trend is plaids. So if you were wondering what to wear those pretty high waisted jeans with: try some plaids! And last but not least. Top of that high waist skirt or jeans with some over the knee boots for that entire seventies chique look.


You can find C&A stores in most of the (big) cities in Belgium or choose the comfortable option and just shop online from your couch.

TRAVEL | SHOPPING RETREAT AT TERHILLS AND MAASMECHELEN VILLAGE

Last weekend I lived in a fairytale. The Different Hotel group recently opened a pretty hotel right next to the Maasmechelen Village outlet shopping. What better way to spend your weekend than finding some major bargains in the outlet village, continued by the most delicious meal, a night in a true prince and princess hotel and to top that off: a breakfast to die for? Right, there isn't!

Another perk of staying at the hotel (except for the obvious resting after a big shopping day) is that you can change your hotel cardholder for a VIP shopping pass. This pass contains ten 10% shopping voucher that you can use at any store in the village. Since a couple years, a few of my favourite brands are added to the MMV portfolio. Now you can also shop Maje, Sandro and Ba&sh. Ahh the love I have for these brands. Even more love at outlet prices!

After a quick peek into the village on Saturday, we went to check in at the lovely Terhills hotel. We were super warmly welcomed by the front desk guy with some bubbles. He carries all the luggage up with us to the room and managed to tell us a few nice details of the hotel on the way up. Like the fact that one side of the building is almost 50cm lower because of a mine explosion back in the mining days of Maasmechelen. They found that the building was still steady so they didn't change it. It truly gives it a certain charm!

After a short prep in our sky high and very pretty room, we went down to join Grietje and her boyfriend for an apero, followed by the most delicious five course dinner. It contained some of my favourite ingredients like truffle and berries.

Have I already told you that I love hotel beds by the way? This one really exceeded the expectation. On a scale from one to pillow, it was definitely pillow! So soft an pillowy that you can disappear until housecleaning discovers you the next day. Luckily, I'm always hungry. So breakfast can get me out of bed anytime!

Thanks Different Hotels and Maasmechelen village for having us!
We loved it.

IN MY BAG | BUSINESS CARDS

Travelling light is the new black. And since I want to keep my vintage pieces in a good state to pass them on to my daughters daughter, it is a necessity.

So what do you need when you go out: Phone, wallet, sunglasses, a good lipstick and of course some great business cards.

I recently had some new business cards made and they are wonderful! I love the fact that they have a matte finish. Makes them feel so luxurious.

Ahh can great business cards make you as happy as they make me?
Go ahead and visit printdeal.be to design your own. (I chose the luxe ones.)
They also do posters, flyers and canvasses by the way!

OUTFIT | WHITE SILVER DRESS

Yay, they're finally back! Those nice sunny summer days. They make me miss Barcelona even harder. But guess what: I'm moving again! A little more south this time although the temperature won't be that different. Can you guess the destination? 

I loved Amsterdam but I didn't lose my heart to the city. It wasn't the same like when I lived in New York and Barcelona but this time I fell in love with the people in stead. I met some amazing individuals and I know they will stay in my life forever.

Bye bye Amsterdam.
