OUTFIT | LEOPARD DRESS

So, here's part two of my collab with the amazing Jennifer Kesteleyn. We spent the afternoon discovering all hidden places of Antwerp's famous voetgangerstunnel and the atmosphere reflects this perfectly. I don't know why but for me, this tunnel always had some kind of creepy maffia vibe.

I combined my leopard Bik Bok dress with my favourite Vans sneakers, (soon available in the Flairshop!) a vintage jacket and a vintage sailor hat to dress it down. The Calzedonia socks give the outfit a rock and roll vibe although it is kinda girly.

Can't wait for spring to arrive so I can wear this pretty dress bare legged again!

What am I wearing:

Hat - Vintage
Jacket - Vintage
Socks - Calzedonia
Shoes - Vans







OUTFIT | BABY BLUE JEANS

I did some shopping, hooray! Feels like forever since I've shopped, although I'm shopping all the time. But admit, it is the best feeling when you come home to a package of fresh clothes and you can try them on at home accompagnied by a cocktail and your favourite music (preferably really, really loud).

I browsed te Flair shop for some inspiration and ended up ordering a shitload of clothes. Here's the first outfit I styled. A denim by Topshop, an oversized T-shirt by Bik Bok and since it's still pretty cold, I combined it with my favourite Levi's jacket.

Follow the Flair Shop or the Flair Shop Facebook page for some fashion inspiration and by the way, if you order for more than 50 euro, you get a free Rituals lipstick with your order!

TRAVEL | BARCELONA TIPS

The moment I set foot again on Belgian soil, I start missing the delicious Barcelona food. This city is the closest to my stomach. And you know how you can get through a persons heart... I've been sharing some tips already but I wanted to share some more. Planning a trip to the capital of Catalunya? Make sure to pay a visit to one of these places:

Marmalade, Carrer de la Riera Alta, 4-6
Amazing cocktails and burgers! One of my favourite cocktails is the bloody mary with Desperados - a definite must-try!

La Donutería, Carrer del Parlament, 20
Freshly made donuts - I don't think I need to say more.

Gats, Carrer d'en Xuclà, 7
Perfect for a brunch or lunch! Tapas or delicious mains!


Ikibana, Av. del Paraŀlel, 148
Fusion kitchen between Japanese and Brazilian.

La Tasqueta de Blai, Carrer de Blai, 17
The entire street is pretty cool to eat but I love coming here early and staying for a couple of hours, eating basque pintxos and drinking Txakoli



My favourite way to get to Barcelona is with Vueling Airlines. They've been flying from Brussels since 2004 and have 10 sunny destinations in Spain and Portugal. They have a flight leaving from Brussels around 21h on a Friday, the perfect flight for your weekend getaway without even having to take a day off!


TRAVEL | W HOTEL BARCELONA

If you are planning a trip to Barcelona and you want the hotel with the best view, there is only one address: W Hotel. With it's many floors, a stay at the W doesnt only give you a beautiful overview of the Barcelona coastline but it also shows you the clear blue sea and an overview of the city. I must say that waking up and seeing this made it one of the most perfect mornings of my life.

But besides the view, this hotel has some more perks! Here's why I would go back:

1: You have everything you need right there.
You want to have a quiet holiday or a party weekend? Both are possible at W! I spent my weekend partying on Eclipse, the club on the 26th floor of the hotel and brunching in the wonderful restaurant underneath the hotel called Pez Vela. Party, sleep, eat: who need's more, right?

2: The breakfast buffet.
You all know by now that I'm a big fan of food. And there is just nothing more rewarding then waking up and enjoying a de-li-ci-ous breakfast with yes - a breathtaking view on the beach and sea. Take me back please?

3. The super helpfull staff.
There is always someone around to help you and everyone is smiling. Although W is a big chain, they preserved amazing standards and truly make you feel at home. (only a better version)

Thank you for having me!

OUTFIT | LEOPARD

Windy days are for surfing, definitely not for outfit shoots. But combining your blog  with a fulltime job results in not having perfect weather conditions on that one day you can go out to shoot. That and of course the fact that I live in Belgium (Planning my move to an exotic country in my head right now).

But hey, enough about the weather! because festival season is coming!! I'm starting this weekend at Daydream festival and this jacket might be the perfect festival jacket! It has the perfect rock band print and it doesn't take up a lot of space so it is the perfect solutions for when it cools down! 

Festival season, I'm ready for you! 

What am I wearing 

Jacket - Alix the label
T-shirt - H&M
Jeans - Diesel 
Boots - Minelli 
Bag - Chanel

OUTFIT | SPRING DENIM

Spring has finally arrived! And what better way to celebrate than with a lovely spring outfit?! It was warm enough to walk around bare legged so I could finally get out my pretty denim skirt I ordered at Bijenkorf. I just love their assortment, just so many of my favourite brands together! And their look books and newsletters always inspire me.

One of my favourites on Bijenkorf is definitely the brand Ganni. It is a bit more expensive than your everyday basics but their designs and prints always make me smile. It is a super on-trend brand but they have some vintage influences and that's what I love most about it!

I styled my Topshop skirt with a funny Ganni T-shirt and finished off with a leather jacket and some though boots.

Buy the look at DeBijenkorf.be


Jacket - Levi's 
T-Shirt - Ganni
Skirt - Topshop
Boots - Minelli

OUTFIT | KISS

Rockbands and Leopard. It probably doesn't sound like the perfect combo but hey, since when do we follow the rules when it comes to fashion, right? I've been spending the last few weekends abroad and I just love seeing different cultures and fashion. It truly inspires me to reinvent my closet and make up new outfits with clothes that I already have lying around. So here's your challenge: go and combine! Hooray for the weekend.


What am I wearing:

Shorts - Zara 
T-Shirt - Little thai market
Stockings - Max Mara 
Jacket - H&M
Boots - Stradivarius








OUTFIT | MAKE LOVE NOT WALLS

There is no better day to publish this post than #Internationalwomensday!! We need some more love in this world and let's start with loving ourselves a bit more and stop comparing ourselves to other women. I see so many stupid fights between girls because they are jealous of eachother. We should embrace eachothers differences instead of envying them. Who's with me? I've spent my weekend in beautiful Barcelona with  Charlotte and we had a blast! Spending quality time with friends is just the best way to fill up your days with love. 

Outfit by Diesel - Make love not walls collection.

If you guys have some tips for Berlin and Dubai, shoot! I really don't know these places so some great food and shop hotspots would be awesome. 

Have a beautiful day! 

What am I wearing: 

Coat - H&M
Sweater - H&M
Jeans - Pull&Bear

FASHION | HIP.TIQUE

There is a new fashion hotspot in town and I couldn't be happier with this one. HIP.TIQUE is all about timeless and minimalistic fashion, in the most trendy way. They have a lot of different brands from all over the world but the collections definitely have a Scandinavian vibe.

When you shop at HIP.TIQUE, you receive the full experience. They offer great, qualititative clothes combined with personal style coaching and a fresh cup of  tea which they personally selected to fit the range of clothing. 

When you pass by the store on Leopoldstraat 9 (Antwerp) be sure to say hi to Carine. She is the most dedicated and warm shopowner I've ever met.

What am I wearing:

Jumpsuit by Normakamali find it at HIP.TIQUE
