Travel Chic

This outfit dates back from my short stint in Antwerp, but it doubles perfectly as a casual chic travel outfit. Therefore, I took it this whole outfit with me. A body-con skirt is an easy, light and practical way to add class to your backpack. Throw on a casual t-shirt and you have the perfect daytime outfit in cities where you do not want to walk around like a backpacker or when you want to apply for a (backpacker)job. Add a fancier top for a night out or for a visit to one of the many cosmopolitan rooftop bars.

Back In The City

1 min read
I can hardly believe it but I’m back in the city of Antwerp. For a week already! It has been busy, very busy. I ran from one press office to the other, saw all my blogger friends again, reunited with another precious group of friends at the most emotional wedding I’ve been to so far (it was soooo beautiful) and I’ve moved into the beautiful Antwerp apartment of one of my generous friends. Meanwhile I’ve had the worst cold and have finally overcome the battle with jetlag. These photos were taken during the Antwerp press days. It’s another basic outfit but I do like the contrast between the mint green coat and the leather bikerjacket underneath. These jeans were also one of the first items I collected from the boxes when I got back home.

MekongMekong

Mekong

My first look at the Mekong river was pretty special. Since the Mekong is one of the most important rivers in South-East Asia, it sometimes seems that everything revolves around this source of life. I wanted to show you this very basic (and somewhat muddy) outfit because traveling with a fashionable travel wardrobe is not only about the beauty of clothes. The practical might be more important, however, practical can also be nice to look at. This simple stripe top was the only long sleeved shirt I brought and after a couple of months it has been completely worn out. It served me pretty well though in countries where you have to cover up (like India and the Maldives) or when it got a bit colder (like northern Laos and Vietnam). What’s your favorite travelpiece?

Pressday with Weekday

1 min read
During our Antwerp pressday marathon I decided to wear one of my favorite outfits. Predictably it consists out of my completely worn out Steve Madden boots and customized ripped denim combined with my brand new WEEKDAY top and this amazing Selected Femme Becca Wrap coat. While spending the week in Amsterdam a little while back I couldn’t miss out on paying a visit to the WEEKDAY store. With pieces from other brands such as Cheap Monday, Whyred, Rodebjer and their own brand, the store is an ideal mix between expensive and very affordable pieces. If you’re around, put it on your to-do list. Back to the coat, it has been hanging in my closet waiting for colder weather and since the temperature has dropped it hasn’t come off. It literally goes with any outfit as it perfectly cinches in my waist.

For years and years I have been on the look-out for the perfect perfecto. You see the search for this precious item can be very difficult. You want butter-soft leather and a fit that compliments your body type and is unbound by seasons. This is the jacket that it supposed to age with you and grow more beautiful as the years go on. It is the jacket that is all you need in the between seasons of fall and spring but can also help you through the winter with a beautiful sleeveless knit over the top.

Dress Code Festival Fashion

There are a few things in life that make my heart skip a beat. Music festivals are definitely one of those things. Anxiously I await the dates upon which sales start, I’m obsessively listening to the radio to hear the first names on the line-up and when I can’t make it to a certain festival, my heart dies a little bit. For me festivals revolve around the music, the atmosphere, the friends, the fashion and of course the dancing! We’re already well into the festival season and I already got the chance to go Couleur Café and Rock Werchter. Pukkelpop is coming up in little over a week and I can’t wait to choose what I’m going to pack and which bands I definitely have to see.
