Brace yourselves winter is coming!
Winter is right around the corner so it’s the perfect time to invest in scarfs and beanies. It’s the time of the year to get cosy and comfortable, not only on the couch but also when you want to leave the house. I love classic black, grey and white items in my closet. I’m addicted, easy to combine and always classy.
Here I am wearing my favorite black skinny jeans. They are so comfortable and figure hugging at the same time! I combined it with my favorite grey and silver knitted top from Vila and a printed scarf. A very easy combination, but still interesting with the different materials and prints! To go outside I put on a beanie and a warm coat to protect me during the cold wintery days. The black boots I’m wearing are the most comfortable shoes I ever owned and they can be combined endlessly.
I absolutely love this outfit, because it is just so freaking cosy and comfortable!

This is what we’ve been up to last week….
Cosy wintery evenings. Last week I went to Leuven for a nice dinner with a friend. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, “De Wiering”. I studied in Leuven for 6 years, and when you live in a city you sometimes don’t see how beautiful it actually is. Just look at Leuven’s town hall, it’s a fairytale building right? After catching up with my friend I ended my night with a cup of tea in front of the fireplace!
Baby it’s cold outside! Last week was the moment where winter finally arrived in Belgium. I love going outside with the frosty crispy grass underneath my feet, a perfect way to clear your head.
Just do it! I have to admit it has taken me a while to be stronger than my excuses, but this week I decided it’s time to just do it! People always take a new start on the 1st of January, but why not start now, that way you already reached something amazing to start the new year with! So no more excuses for me, I braved the cold and went to the gym!
Last week I had my final lesson of a barista course I’ve been following in coffee bar Cuperus in Antwerp. Now I’m finally able to make you the perfect cappuccino, espresso or latte!! Although I’m really going to miss visiting Antwerp every week (shopping alert!)…
Almost every week, you can find me in Mechelen, my favorite city in the world (or maybe just in Belgium…). I explored new stores and indulged in the sweetest chocolate cake! This week, I finally took a look at the second hand book store, which was a really nice surprise!
On saturday night, we put our red lipstick on, got our hair done and partied like it’s 1955! Every month, Radio Modern throws one hell of a retro party, and this was my first time. But it won’t be my last. Let’s rock ‘n roll, baby!!
See you next time!!

Days are getting shorter, the weather’s getting colder, and Christmas is just around the corner. This must be my favorite time of the year!
But not only the gifts and hot cocoa’s are making me jump for joy… Finally I can wear all those chunky sweaters I’ve been buying. Comfort is my game, so I love to layer up different sweaters to create an easy outfit. Another reason why I prefer layers during fall and winter, are the overheated stores (the horror!). Think of yourself walking down the street, wearing your warmest duffle coat with a huge scarf wrapped around your neck… and then you enter a store where it’s 35 degrees (celsius, in case you’re wondering) and you start sweating like a pig! Or am I the only person who feels this way :)??
Anyway, my latest buy is this comfy sweater, which I’m wearing over an all black outfit. Because neutral colors can sometimes make your outfit a little dull, I always add bold accessories, such as this necklace from Madewell. I don’t wear a lot of high heels, but these booties are just so comfortable and easy to mix and match. Lately, I’ve been living in this outfit. So I think it’s time for some shopping again ;)
