Take A Microadventure to Dinant

Posted on November 7, 2016

When my Sunday afternoon plans fell through, I looked at one of my best mates and we decided to jump in the car and take a microadventure to Dinant.

The term microadventure was first invented/claimed by adventurer Alastair Humphreys and can be defined as a “short, simple, local, cheap adventure”. It means that you can jump in the car or on the train and you don’t have to spend half a fortune on a plane ticket across the world. For me, these micro adventures are a way of life. There is nothing I love to do more than to inject a little bit of adventure into daily life. That is certainly the reason I love traveling so much. Every day is an adventure! Continue Reading

Posted on September 29, 2016

It’s often a practical question on whether to pack a hat on your next trip abroad. They are difficult to store, you might have to put them on your head during transit and do you even need it? I only started traveling with a hat (the lovely halfway through my last travels through South East Asia and Australia and was so happy to have it. So yes, I’m a big advocate of taking a hat with you and here is why Continue Reading

How To Nail Your Airport Outfit

Posted on January 28, 2016

The airport outfit is often one of the most difficult outfits to nail and for me that is certainly the case. It needs to combine a whole lot of comfort with style. It will need to keep you warm and be pleasant to sit in for hours to come because you will most likely end up taking a nap. It is very tempting to grab your regular jogging pants out from under the bed and an oversized sweater. However, that’s not your only option. If you want to take your airport outfit to the next level, here are some tips that will make you nail your airport outfit. Not only are these tips useful for flights, they will be your best friend in overnight buses, boat trips or even an overnight camping trip next to the road. Continue Reading

Metallic

Posted on October 21, 2014

Hello from Amsterdam! I just arrived to work here for a week and wanted to sneak an outfitpost in. I’ll be discovering new spots all week so you can expect awesome hotspots on the blog very soon! These pictures are from the Zalando Blog Awards I attended last week (an award that Paulien took home!). We were all very curious about these awards as we would be meeting topblogger Yara Michels and hearing her speak about her own blog experience. That calls for metallic pants I thought! I honestly don’t wear these eye-catching Haider Ackermann trousers often enough. The boots are from Haider Ackermann as well and this was actually the first ‘official’ time they were allowed outside. I bought them for myself as a going-away present from the company of Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann and have never worn them. You know, some shoes need to shine on a bookshelf first before taking them out for a walk. Continue Reading

A Year, A Day and A Nomination

Posted on October 14, 2014

Exactly one year and one day ago this blog saw the light of day. This means that by this time last year, I was in New York hopping from Starbucks to Starbucks to check what you guys thought of my newest baby. These exciting days were followed by an amazing year filled with new ideas, a lot of work and hopefully plenty of inspiration for you all. Since my Ella And Louise days, I wanted to focus more on a unique combination of fashion and travel with a hint of delicious food. I’m still working on improving the blog every day but there are some favorites that made my top 6 (I couldn’t stick to 5) posts. This direction of fashionable wanderlust is something that I feel very passionate about and look forward to showing more of in the future. Continue Reading

Bridge

Posted on February 21, 2014

On a windy weekend I got the chance to visit the wonderful B&B Stout & Co. with one of my best girlfriends. While wondering the city, I was very excited to shoot my brand new & Other Stories shoes (even though they broke on me -twice-). It was quite a challenge to take pictures though as we very cleverly -not- waited until we were in the red-light district (read very busy) on our way to a great Thai restaurant. So we decided to grab a quick snack first and do the shoot in a more relaxed area. Followed by cocktails of course! Even though we were only gone for 2 days, it felt like a small little holiday. More will come up on the blog about Stout & Co. and what I’ve been up to in Amsterdam during the past months. Have a great weekend! Continue Reading
