The sea


My trip to the Belgian coast must have revived my love for the sea!

Ovide


I swear, Instagram is a real gold mine when it comes to finding trendy and sustainable brands!

Random blogging thoughts


Writing about old clothes isn't always easy. You've probably seen me in my 501's a hundred times and honestly, I have nothing more to say about them other than that I love them.

Ethics vs Budget



The more I look into it, the more I realize that there are a thousand ways to achieve a more sustainable wardrobe. Today's outfit is a good example of that.

Shopping detox




At times, it can get really frustrating to have a capsule wardrobe and I still haven't fully figured out how to deal with it. I REALLY feel like shopping and the only thing stopping me is that I'd much rather spend my money on a new spring wardrobe than on winter clothes... even if they're on sale.

Khaki Details

Frankly, I don't know where last week went. I was super busy with work but I'm finally back with a sunday outfit: black mom jeans, white cardigan over white sweater, TUK creepers, a hat I bought in Porto and my last purchase, my bag from The Lovely Things that makes a great alternative to the Gucci Dyonisus.

Marshmallow


I really don't know how else to name this post. I suppose it has to do with all the white and fluffiness.
I'm actually wearing a very simple outfit, yet, I love it. It's comfy, warm, casual and stylish. Perfect to hit the city on a Saturday afternoon. It's just mom jeans with a very old white sweater, sneakers, my teddy coat and a Furla candy bag I almost had forgotten about.

Capsule wardrobe thoughts


I gotta say, having a capsule wardrobe can get frustrating at times. Sure, I like that it simplifies my morning routine a lot but some days, I just wish I could go on a shopping spree and buy everything I like. I'm telling you, whoever said that capsules were a great way to do a shopping detox was lying. But I have willpower and I will resist the urge to shop. It really helps when I see I get to wear clothes that I've had for years.

Black mom jeans


Brussels is great when it comes to vintage clothing. I can't count how many thrift shops and second hand stores are out there. Though I wouldn't buy everything there, when it comes to mom jeans, I definitely prefer picking a vintage pair over a brand new one.

Fall 17 uniform


Oooooh, starting today, I'm allowed to do some shopping! I can't tell you how excited I am! But for now, it's still about posting fall capsule looks.

Monday attire



Happy Monday everyone! I admit, the week is going to be short for me considering I only work today. That really gave me some motivation and I had the courage to rock some heels.

Cardigan season


I believe light grey cardigans are a must-have staple for any good wardrobe. I don't know if you would agree, but they make me think of Scandinavian fashion and its cozy and comfortable spirit. Today, in order to stay on the comfy casual side, I'm wearing mine with my 501's and my Nike free's.

Kimono x mom jeans


I'm always very happy when I get to wear a piece of clothing I love year after year. I got this floral kimono last year during the summer sales for about 5 euros and I think I'm never going to get tired of it.

Rainy spring day



Nothing screams rainy spring day more than a trench coat. I didn't think I could wear one with mom jeans but obviously, I was wrong. I paired it with my 501's, a simple black shirt, my Stella McCartney creepers and my Birkin.

Shop your closet


I enjoy fashion, but I don't feel like spending a fortune buying dozens of clothes I will wear once or twice. I know lately, I've been sounding very greedy but it's just that seeing one of my co-workers wearing brand new outfits almost every day (and probably spending half her salary on Asos and Zalando) made me think a lot.

More mom jeans


Last week, I fell for this pair of mom jeans from Bershka with a cut that's more fitted than my 501's. I'm wearing it with an old pink blazer from the French brand Naf Naf, a white wrap blouse and my loyal Jimmy Choo's in a perfect for work outfit.

The rise of the mom jeans



I'm always happy when I get to wear my clothes year after year because 1) it means I didn't gain weight and 2) it's wisely spent money.On a more serious note, it's now undeniable that the mom jean has taken over our wardrobes and that it's here to stay!

501


I didn't think I could wear mom jeans in winter but a pair of Jimmy Choo's later, here I am!

The mom jeans return


I can't believe September is already here! Just a few days ago I was still soaking up the sun in France and Monday seemed lightyears away. Times flies fast. Luckily the weather in Belgium has been kind enough to let me enjoy some more beach time in Ostend which made the transition much easier to cope with.
