Hi there ladies and gents,
I’m finally back and here to stay. Hope you’ve all had a lovely and crazy summer up until now. Mine has been hectic and confusing but also really fun. A fair amount of wining and dining has occurred over the last few months, some dancing and of course a lot of laughter. I’ve also met some very interesting and lovely new people while working at my new job in the sustainable fashion industry.
I’m very excited to announce my new outfit post! This combo is a mix of second hand pieces, ethically made clothing and Belgian design. My style at the moment could be described as classically stylish with a twist, or that’s how I call it at least.

For starters, that skirt! It was love at first sight. I spent days refreshing an e-shop page waiting for it to be priced off to a number that was acceptable for my student wallet. I now realise how insane that sounds but hey ‘a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do’. I’m absolutely loving the net-like fabric, it adds the perfect amount of edginess to the classic maxi skirt. This statement piece is not just a stunner it’s also made with love in the EU.
Skirt: Julia June
Next up: those gorgeous wooden sunglasses. Yes it’s true, they are celebrity worthy and… designed and produced in Belgium by two friends who’ve combined their love for beautifully made, sustainable and affordable design.
Pssst… their summer sale is still on!
To make this ensemble even more glamorous I added my second hand blazer from Elisabetta Franchi. I adore Elisabetta’s designs, they’re sophisticated and always have a wow factor. This off-white/beige number is certainly a go-to for special occasions (or you know… if I just feel like being fancy schmancy).
Blazer: Second hand Elisabetta Franchi purchased at Cyaankali in Leuven.
Last but not least: my sparkly yet subtle earrings. I got these little gems at Zahia, a Belgian jewelry brand. They also sell beads and stones separately if you’d rather design your own piece or you can even have a jewel made for you personally. If your fingers are tingling when hearing the words ‘make your own jewelry’ you should definitely check out Zahia’s workshops.
I promise to write you guys and gals soon!
