What To Wear For Work When It’s Really Hot

Hey there,

For the past few weeks, it’s been super duper hot.  It’s been so hot that it has been barely bearable.  You know when the temperature is so high that you have absolutely zero energy?  There is no fresh air, even at night, so you don’t get any sleep?  And you wake up exhausted?  But you still have to get up and go to work?  That’s been my routine for a month.

Another tough part is: how to dress?  Because all you want to do is laying down by a pool or on the beach in a bikini.  But you can’t.  If you want to be able to do that, you gotta go to work (as Britney would say: You want to live fancy?  You better work bitch).  And unless you work as a lifeguard – which I’m not – you have to dress appropriately.  Now let’s see what we can do 🙂

1.  Skirts:

You can play with the colours, the prints and the length: pencil skirts, a-line skirts, midi skirts and mini skirts.  Pair your skirt with a button-down shirt and you’re good to go.  If we don’t wear our skirts when it’s 100 degrees out, I don’t know when we will.

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 18 Trends? Denim Redux Edition

Hello everyone,

One of the trends this season is denim.  Again?!  Yes, but this time it’s all about dark denim revival.  The trend was proposed by various designers, including Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Max Mara and Alexander McQueen.

I don’t know about you, but when I look at these looks I think about my (awkward) teenage years.  More specifically, it makes me think of the early 2000s when some of my favorite celebs rocked dark denim – sometimes from head to toe – but always oh so perfectly: Aaliyah, Britney, Sarah Michelle Gellar, … I probably tried to copy them without much success.   Continue reading “How To Wear the Spring-Summer 18 Trends?

What To Wear To A Rock Concert?

Hello there,

How are you? Sorry for the delay, but I’ve been super duper busy; and it was literally impossible to take some time to just sit and write a piece for you.

Last Monday I went to a concert in Brussels. I went to see Kodaline, and to be honest (hooonNEST!!!) it was epic! To keep this memory as long as possible, I thought it would be nice to write about “What to Wear to a Rock Concert?  I won’t write about festival gear, I’ll leave that for the summer (or Coachella, even if we, Europeans, don’t feel the hype as much as the Americans do); so here I’ll focus on a simple concert.

First thing first, you don’t wear the same outfit to a rock concert and a pop concert.  Just so we’re clear, when I say “you don’t”, it’s just to make me feel omniscient; because you can wear whatever the hell you want !  But, for the sake of discussion, let’s just go with it…  For instance, I wouldn’t wear the same look to see The Libertines, and to see the legendary Miss Britney Spears’ show in Vegas (Gosh, I love Brit Brit ❤ ).

Military: SS15 Trend

Hello people,

How are you? I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here is purely Belgian weather. It’s rainy, grey, and then there’s a tiny ray of sunshine. Then it rains again. Which means that every morning, you have to get prepared… just as if you’re going to war 😉

In this post, I will show you pieces you can find to rock the military style, one of SS15 trends. I’ve always liked that style. I don’t know if it’s the same for you, but when I wear a military piece, a jacket for instance, I feel more powerful in a way; like I can do anything. I feel stronger strooooonger than yesterday, now is nothing but my waayyyyy. So here are pieces that can help you brave any sh*tty day!

Hotel Particulier proposes a suede jacket, and a long vest; while Zadig & Voltaire also has a nice sleeveless jacket.
