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.

Fall/Winter 2017-2018: Sales Shopping Selection

Hey there,

I hope you’re doing great!  Have you had the chance to do some sales shopping already?  Personally, I usually wait till it’s at least 50% off.  So I haven’t bought anything yet, but I’m really looking forward to doing some shopping next weekend.

In this post, you can see a small selection of items from Belgian brands.  If the pieces look familiar, it’s probably because you saw them in my series “How to wear the FW trends?” I’m consistent, I’m just posting here my crushes 😉

Let’s do some damage!

Essentiel-Antwerp: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21]

How To Wear A Work Appropriate Outfit When It’s Freezing?

Hello there,

Winter is coming here.  Unfortunately, most of us can’t work from home; which means we have to get our asses off the bed, get dressed, and above all, we have to dress work appropriately.  This can be a huge undertaking when it’s 0°C outside and when it’s dark when you get out the door.  You know what I’m saying?

But just because it’s dark, and cold, and raining, and realllllyyyy difficult to be a responsible adult (ugh!), it doesn’t mean we have to go through all that unstylish.  Right? So here are some looks  that you can get some inspiration from for the next 2 months of winter – probably 3 if you’re Belgian 😉

Trench coat and pant suit

Nothing revolutionary, but boy it’s pretty!  And classy.  And empowering.  I don’t know why, but anytime I wear a trench (or a long) coat I feel way more confident.  Don’t get me started on  the pant suit…  And if you want to protect yourself from the cold, the coat will definitely do the trick.

2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Holidays can be super stressful.  What am I gonna wear?  (That’s for an upcoming post my dears) What am I gonna prepare for my guests?  What kind of table decoration am I gonna come up with?  How am I gonna *survive* the season?

All these questions are legit.  But in this post, I’ll answer another super duper important question: WHAT ON EARTH CAN I POSSIBLY BUY FOR EVERYONE AND HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THEY LIKE IT?????  It could possibly be one of the most complex questions ever asked on the face of the earth.  Right?!  Nothing worse than to hand someone you love a gift that they hate.  The look on their faces?  It can be haunting.  So here, I’ll try to prevent you from experiencing this dreadful situation.  You can thank me later 😀
