Admitted, I’m not a blogger that posts frequently. My last post dates back from April! Shame on me… Writing my master thesis, preparing for my exams and still being able to spend some quality time with my friends, didn’t leave any time for writing a new post. I honestly have no idea how bloggers and busy bees such as Elien and Paulien manage to write qualitative texts (always accompanied by great pictures), multiple times a week. But I have good news: My exams are FINALLY over. This past weekend I went on a trip to the belgian coast and of course I couldn’t resist paying a visit to the pre-sales organized by Pied de Poule!

As usual dresses and sweaters bulged out of my fitting room. In the end I went home with the most professional, yet sexy look. This will come in very handy as I will – hopefully – start my professional life really soon. The See by Chloé wide-legged pants are very comfortable and tailored. They are high-waisted and thus accentuate my (personally) favorite and best asset. You can combine it with every color, but I prefer to combine the pants with this pale pink tank top. To finish the look, I’ve bought this gorgeous, multicolored, neon-ish cardigan! This all at -30%!

Cocktail party, lunch date or work: this look is up for anything!

How would you combine this pants?

Is it a short or a skirt?

Ever since I saw Rumi Neely‘s post on this Zara skirt/short the item has been on my wishlist. And now… it’s MINE!

I’ve been fantasizing on how I could style this skirt/short for a couple of weeks now. Because it gives the impression of being a short skirt (though it’s actually a short) there are multiple ways on how you can wear this piece. Some examples:

1 skirt - 5 ways
1. Skirt - Zara / 2. Jacket - Mango / 3. Blouse - Zara / 4. Top - 
Alexander Wang / 5. Top - Suno / 6. Top - 3.1. Philip Lim / 7. Flat 
sandals - AX paris / 8. Clutch - H&M / 9. Sandals - Alexander Wang

NEW IN: Sandro Jeans

During Easter Weekend I went on a short citytrip to Paris with my BFF. In spite of the cold and our sore feet & muscles, we had a BLAST! It was my fifth time in the city of blinding lights. Of course I had seen most of the touristic spots on my previous trips, so this one was all about what Charlotte (the BFF) really wanted to see (it was her second time in the city), some spots I had yet to discover and stores, stores, stores!

You may be surprised that after one day only, having seen cultural highlights such as Montmartre (Moulin Rouge, Place du Tertre and Sacre Coeur) and all kinds of stores (Galeries Lafayette, Chanel, la Rue Saint-Honoré (Colette!)), we (Charlotte) only shopped 1 thing: an egg shaper! We had been very good girls! Until the second day at least…

Fashionata Ladies Night

Yesterday evening the first Fashionata Ladies Night took place at Renaissance, Antwerp. Fashionata blogger and host of the event, Sofie Valkiers, entertained her fans, friends and other fashionistas with some Piper Champagne, giveaways, workshops and a fashion show! And that all after a week of ‘fashionista war‘! Not everyone would remain this calm, kind, elegant and sophisticated (though a bit nervous 😉 ). Out of over a 1000 entries (you had to subscribe to be able to attain an invitation) I was one of the lucky ones to obtain a ticket!

In my opinion, Renaissance was the perfect location to hold this fashionable event. For those who don’t know the store: Renaissance is part of the ‘Princess‘ group and sells hot and trendy brands such as Victoria Beckham, Peter Pilotto, Alexander Wang and MSGM. The all white store just breaths elegance, pure perfection.

Maybe you’re all curious if I was one of the giveaway winners? Unfortunately I was not. One girl won a diamond (worth of € 950!) and another one (who was the fair winner for her impeccable red lips/high heels look) went home with a package consisting of a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, a headphone, Diamanti per Tutti jewelry and a free overnight stay at hotel Julien! Since I already won the Sofie Valkiers for Diamanti per Tutti Valentine’s give-away, it’s only fair someone else took home all of these must haves. Congrats to them!

For a lack of a decent camera, I took some pictures with my iPhone, so you can get an idea of the evening:

NEW IN: CRIME sneakers

Sneakers are currently very hot and trendy. Everywhere you go you see someone with Nikes, Pumas, New Balances or sneakers from another brand. ‘Sports(shoe)wear’ apparently has gained an important place in our ‘shoewardrobe’, a place just as important as a pair (a lot of) pairs of  sky high heels.

With Spring coming up and all of my old sneakers worn down to the bone, I was in some desperate need of a new pair. It needed to be a pair that I could wear Winter to Summer, with a bit of ‘fantasy’ and above all ‘comfortable’ for my BFF-trip to Paris (countdown!)!

Have I found them? DUH, the title says it all! These pretty and ‘a bit of everything’ (spikes, different fabrics, the worn look…) Crimes will be my ‘partner in crime’ (got it? 😉 ) the following months years!

SS13 – Paul & Joe Sister

This past weekend I was on the seaside. With all of the new spring/summer collections in stores (my ss13 wish list is coming up soon), I just couldn’t resist paying a visit to one of my favorite shopping addresses: Pied de Poule (remember this?!)! Leaving this store empty handed? NEVER!

I’ve tried on several dresses, but in the end I was in doubt about two. Which one did I choose?
