How To Dress To Go From The Beach To The Street?

Hey there,

How are you?  I hope you’re all going great.  I don’t know about you, but gosh I really need some sun right now!  For those of you who are not in Belgium, you should know that it’s been basically rain, grey sky, a little more rain, and some grey sky again for a month (give or take).  Put another way, we are in November!  So no wonder that I’m craving some holidays.  I have to hold on for two more weeks, and then I’m off (happy face)!

So, if like me you still have some summer trips ahead, this post is for you :). I put together 4 looks that will get you from the beach straight to the street!  Sometimes it is just a pain in the a** to pack an outfit in your beach bag for after the beach; or – even worse – to go back to your hotel or apartment to get changed before hitting the streets for a quick bite to eat, for a gelato, or for some shopping.  Wouldn’t it be easier if one single outfit could do the trick?  Yes, definitely.  Let’s have a look!

Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Hey there,

As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April.  I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle.  Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place.  I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged.  However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.

Let’s (re-)discover the red city…

Marrakech – Day 1 Photo Diary

Marrakech – Day 1 Photo Diary

Hey there,

In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco.  It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions.  I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time.  I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉

“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech.  […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […]  Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]
