Paris Fashion week – outfit 1 for Balmain

image image

My first day in Paris for fashion week. I must say, I forgot a bit how crazy Paris was this time a year. The city is full of the most fashionable people and influencers. I didn’t know where to look first.
As for my previous and first fashion week experience, I opted for dresses. This time I stayed a bit more true to my daily life outfits.
So for the Balmain show, I wore my Balmain blazer (off course) with a grey jeans and my most comfi heels by Givenchy.

Who says you can’t wear sneakers with a skirt?!




So, sneakers with a miniskirt, not everyone’s cup of tea. In my eyes it changes the obvious boots and skirt combination.

Is your casual look:jeans with sneakers, just trade them for a miniskirt once in a while and you might be surprised by the result!

Maje Spring collection

The beginning of each season is so inspiring! Making outfits in our heads and adding pieces to those endless wishlists.

I am not the biggest fan of the Parisian chic brands like Maje or Sandro but I must say that this season’s lookbook by Maje made me dream of summer…

My personal favourite is the black maxi-skirt. I would wear it very casual with a simple V-neck t-shirt and sneakers or flat thongs…

Which item do you prefer?


Love it or hate it, red leather!

As neutral as the brown leather was in my last post, how excessive this red is!

Ever since Balmain had red leather in their 2010 collection, it has been on my wishlist, especially with the officer inspired blazer. An amazing outfit, very Kate Moss-ish!

I came across these leather Theory pants a few years ago on TheOutnet , hesitated for a few minutes but finally decided to make the purchase. Honestly I’ve only worn them once or twice. It is a headturning piece, that’s for sure.

But now this officer’s jacket completes the outfit I had in mind when I got the pants, so they should come out more in the following winter months!


Love that oversized knit

image imageimageI love the trend of oversized knits. This legging has been in my closet for ages but couldn’t really find a proper outfit as I like fitted tops. But with this style a fitted top was a no-go.

So I got this sweater from Eric Bompard, a warm cosy cashmere knit. Just the way I like it.

Back to the leggings, it is so original the bottom is leather and the top is regular stretchy fabric. It was one of the pieces I got from, a webshop I check on a daily basis to see if they have new treasures on discount prices! A tip from a sales-hunter ;-)




Gotta love that flare

My love for flared jeans has never stopped, it just gives an amazing silhouette as I explained in the Victoria Beckham article.

So when these babies and I met last week, no way I could walk out the store without them. They are by one of my favourite denim brands, Hudson Jeans (available at Carrément, Gent).

As usual, I used the Hermès scarf as a color palette for my outfit : black, white and brown for the shoes !

Casual friday in leopard

I searched the net to find the perfect black sneaker. Honestly I was blown away by the Saint Laurent studded ones but I chose for a more budget-friendly pair. My new Nike Internationalist.

I saw them on & Other Stories a while ago but when I decided to hit the “purchase” button, they were sold out. So typical!

Then I searched for hours on the net, called all the sneaker stores I know to find them eventually on Zalando. A few days of patience and these babies were on my feet!

I used my leopard coat as a color scheme, a camel oversized knit, skinny trousers and my Nikes!

Happy weekend

You’d think it would be easy to choose black sneakers. Well I have been looking ages for the perfect one!

I chose some of the favourites I’ve seen the last few weeks. Which one is your fav?

For me : Adidas x Opening Ceremony with calf hair and the Saint Laurents !

L’Eté Indien

We’re having such an amazing Indian Summer. A great gift after gloomy August. But not always easy to dress.

It’s a challenge to mix the latest pieces of summer with the first items from your fall closet.

I tend to wear trousers with sandals and a fine knit with a biker jacket or blazer like today. For me this feels comfi this time of year.

Get me inspired by telling me what you’re been wearing lately!
