Triple the excitement! No not really, but it does make for an excellent city tripping combo. And I do blend in perfectly with the background at Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation, don’t I? If you plan on visiting Marseille, don’t miss this piece of architecture history. The rooftop is freely accessible and a great spot for taking a break!
My shop Lily and the Lady has been working with quirky Spanish brand Nice Things for six seasons now. I once discovered it while I was living in Barcelona and bumped into one of their shops, but you can read all about that here.
This season I absolutely love the video’s they made called “Nice Things from another point of view”. They have three video’s based on mountain, desert and sea surroundings, and they respectively want to make me go camping, go ride a camel or go snorkeling, so let’s just say job well done! I love the mountain video the most. The music, the images, the editing… It reminds me of my childhood vacations in the south of France. The perfect way to kickstart the sunny weekend! Read more..
Yesterday’s outfit that already seems about 10 000 times too hot for today. We’ve either had rain and ridiculously low temperatures this spring, or instant summer like now. I’m not complaining though, I’d prefer some sunshine any day. It had been a long time since I worn this jacket, even though I love the fact that the classic vibe is balanced with the rough edges. But now it has found a perfect buddy: my ripped Levi’s 501 jeans. Some high heels and a simple top: done!
… this wonderful combo by my new brand crush Attic and Barn, perfect for the weather we’ve been having in Belgium this week! Finish with a flat sandal and some sunnies, et voila, perfect summer look!
The emergency parka has turned out to be the perfect travel buddy this month. It has a hood, fits over everything (hello layering!), is light weight and easy to carry around in my handbag when I’m not wearing it. Kind of perfect for the weather we’ve been having. Oh and the pockets are big enough to fit your boarding pass and passport. Score! When strolling in Barcelona, comfort is key, so I paired my parka with a little black dress, my favourite statement necklace and some Toms. Read more..
I’ve always liked the look of a turban on women. They feel oriental and bohemian and remind me of the twenties and seventies. I always pictured myself wearing one with curly hair and crazy big earrings. At the same time, I feel turbans a hard thing to master as a fashion item. Maybe it’s the religious connotation, maybe it’s the fact that I rarely wear hats to begin with… But let’s say the summer of 2013 is finally the season of the turban for me, I’m in need of some decent inspiration. Learning from the likes of Gloria Swanson, Barbra Streisand and Liz Taylor, that’s already something, right?
If I had to pick only one colour to wear for the rest of my life, it might be blue. I never tire of wearing it and it’s just the right kind of classic. These pics were taken a few weeks ago here in Antwerp when we had a dash of spring. I wish that weather would return.
I wasn’t going to shop before my Thailand trip aside from the absolute necessities (which apparently are a lot when you backpacking for 3 weeks) but then I saw this dip dye bikini in H&M. Couldn’t resist!
Working at a denim label has significantly increased the amount of denim that I wear on a daily basis. And as I already was quite a big denim lover, that’s saying a lot. In the past 6 months my denim stash has doubled (at least). With summer coming up, I have developed a new fascination for distressed denim (which has been very obvious on my denim pinboard). I started small with just one pair of River Island boyfriend jeans with small rips on the knees last year. During the past few months however a pair of DIESEL jeans with a fully torn knee has been added and while customizing our Levi’s 501′s, I asked to completely tear open both knees. When I got the latter I still wasn’t satisfied, so I decided to tear them up some more before I first wore them. Next on my wishlist is a pair of skinny jeans with torn knees and maybe some distressing on the upper leg and oké maybe also a pair of distressed shorts and …
