Floral Wrap

  I have a big love for gigantic skirts, they can be matched with everything and still look fab. You can keep it simple and wear a plain tshirt, shirt or crop top. Or you can find a perfect top to create print-on-print action. To give the entire outfit a color boost I wore my blue heels from Primark and my favorite Shellbag! For me this is the perfect outfit for a date night or a little stroll in the city.     I got my Floral wrap skirt from Asos, which is becoming my Visa card’s second home. I can spend hours on Asos searching for cool pieces and this skirt ofcourse needed to be in my closet. Since last year was the “hotline bling”- year, I got this shiny Skinnydip Shellbag for my birthday from my best friends. These days you can call me on my Shellphone… You can never have to much white shirts in your closet, this one’s from Subdued. Thanks to & Other Stories I now got a new pair of …

Socks in Sandals

  The warm weather days are almost behind us. That means I can finally start to experiment with my fall outfits. One thing I can’t part with yet are my Teva Sandals. The perfect way to transition them from summer to fall is to wear socks in them. For many people this may be a fashion faux pas, but I can’t help but love it! For this outfit I chose to wear bright colored socks that match my vintage style shirt. I decided to keep the rest of the outfit a bit more classy so the focus stays on the socks and sandals. Do you dare to keep wearing your sandals during autumn?   Top & pants –  Zara // Socks – Uniqlo // Sandals – Teva // Glasses – Polette  // Clutch – Vintage. Pictures by Michelle Serdons

#MODEinOOSTENDE Recap

It’s always cool to discover new hotspots in your own country, so we were really excited when we got invited by Belmodo and Visit Oostende for #MODEinOOSTENDE. #MODEinOOSTENDE is the perfect weekend to find out more about the boutiques and stores that this beach town has to offer. The participating shops showed off their best selection of brands and cool store interior while serving chilled drinks.  We started our weekend with a yummy lunch at Passe-Vite, it’s a small but cozy place with two very kind ladies at your service. We both took a salade which was freshly made with a lot of care and love. It was a definite must-go in Ostend!     With a map filled with stores to discover we started our shopping stroll throughout Ostend. We really loved the Vitrine Lulu Store , a tiny boutique with the coolest selection of Belgian-  and international designer pieces for women. ( Tim Van Steenbergen, Annemie Verbeke, Jil Sander Navy, Vivienne Westwood, Fuzzi, Jean Paul Gaultier, Maison Margiela MM6.) We both adored a perfect …

Albufeira

Summer is almost over but I’m pretty sure that a ton of people are still in need of sunshine, beach and cocktails. Can’t decide where you’ll be chillin’ in the next couple of weeks? Here’s a great tip: Albufeira, Portugal. Albufeira is in the south of Portugal in the Faro district. It’s known for its beautiful beaches, rocky landscape and hot weather. We booked a cool 4 person apartment at Golden Beach Apartments through sunweb.be, with an ocean view, airco and a pool with cocktailbar. Who wouldn’t be happy? Go-go’s in Albufeira Dolphin and cave watching. With a 2,5 h boattrip you visit the most beautiful caves and the amazing coastline of Algarve. We went across the most visited cave and jumped into the clear blue water next to the ”Submarine” rock. They say that The Beatles got inspired by this rock to created their song ‘‘ Yellow submarine”. Yeah, some tourists really believed this tale… After seeing a ton of tiny beaches we finally saw some wild dolphins! You can book your trip at …
