on resurrection road


I love going back to things my wardrobe (read 'current options on high rotation') neglected for a while. I had this Twee bag by Jérôme Dreyfuss tacked away for a good year while being all perfectly satisfied with Céline Trio and Theyskens' Theory options and even fought the temptation to cave for PS11 on one or two occasions (now I'm thinking luckily this never happened). And somehow, as our little girl is three weeks old today, my postpartum brain is perceiving all things fashion refreshingly differently. So here goes... to a newly resurrected Twee with all kinds of outfit options it is capable to sustain for the summer months.

I love that satisfactory feeling of having made a purchase a few years ago that is capable of lasting longer than a fashion season.

Vintage silk dress, Céline bag, Jennie Ellen flats, Filippa K sunglasses

Floral kind of Sunday happened over the weekend. This dress is probably the one and only I can relate to in terms of prints. I've had it for as long as I can remember and even when it came to whittling down my wardrobe on numerous occasions this number has always been the last one standing.

Acne Studios jacket, Isabel Marant top, Zara skirt, Manebi espadrilles, Céline bag

North Pole of a Belgian seaside a couple of days ago. We ventured on a first 'big' trip with our baby girl and things went more than ok except challenges of breastfeeding in public places and a few other little moments I never realised new parents would be faced with. Acne leather was more than appropriate in these borderline storm conditions and I haven't regretted for a second zipping that fur collar back on just before leaving Leuven. Middle of July in Northern hemisphere (!). Isabel Marant 'cupcake' top has just a good enough amount of ruffles to mitigate that whole heavy leather situation. And 'granny' flats as usual are still on high rotation.

only seconds to spare


Sweater free weather and sleepless nights, and just seconds to spare to be able to document all the gorgeous sunsets happening these days right outside my living room window.

Wearing HM Conscious Exclusive top and Sunday Somewhere Matahari sunglasses.

Back to round frames and gradient opacity of lenses. Addicted to the whole 'basic' factor.
