Home Tour: My Previous Closet

Home Tour: My Previous Closet

Hi guys, a small trip down memory lane today, as I share my previous closet space with you! It has been around ten months since we packed up our old apartment in the centre of Antwerp and moved into the place we’re renovating. While I was looking for some pictures,...

Printed Jacket & Denim

Happy monday, you guys! Here’s what I wore last weekend on a day trip to Brussels. Dieter and I went to the Horta museum and had coffee and dinner in the city on saturday, it felt like a tiny getaway. It was great to finally spend a day together after...
The Apple Outsider

The Apple Outsider

A while back I went for a drink in one of Belgium’s finest cocktail bars and inquired if they had any sweet gin cocktails. I got a rather cool response that in fact they did not, and that most gin cocktails are either dry or sour.  I’d never claim to...

Belgetarian Dinner Party

A while back I was contacted by the wonderful Julie from Why Not Monday to host a dinner party together. Not just any dinner party, but a Belgetarian dinner party! Carrefour had contacted Julie to cook a lovely meal with local, Belgian products, and she in her turn thought we could maybe host it in my...

Dries Van Noten Inspirations at MoMu

My apologies for what must be the longest hiatus in between posts since the blog has been online. Sometimes my offline life takes over, and I guess that’s only normal / healthy. As I told you here, we chose our new collections for Lily and the Lady (including some brand new brands like Wouters &...

Black, White & Denim

Every february when our summer collection arrives, I feel overwhelmed by a longing for spring. It’s a bit confusing, because at the same time we’re also picking out new items for next fall, so we’re totally bombarded with new impulses. I don’t have the best memory when it comes to numbers and figures, but lucky...
Home renovation: Living Room update

Home renovation: Living Room update

Since my last big living room update, a lot has happened. Some things I have told you about, like the addition of our new artwork and the makeover of our adjacent green hallway, but most of them weren’t really blogworthy on their own. The coffee table got yet another coat of paint but will hopefully soon be replaced by...
Neutral Table Setting with Succulents

Neutral Table Setting with Succulents

A while back Julie and I hosted a Belgian dinner party. Julie cooked and I provided the location and styled the table. We each got to invite 2 guests and the night ended up being a whole lot of fun for us, and hopefully for our guests Ilja, Liesbeth, Jeroen and Laura. There’s a video...
Black & Red

Black & Red

A simple winter outfit from a couple of weeks ago in my all time favorite “colour”, black. Sorry for the long silence over here, I have so much content lined up ranging from the Dries Van Noten expo at MoMu Antwerp, to some details from my New York trip last week, some outfits and some...

Dairy free Blood Orange & Meringue dessert

When Stephanie invited me to a lovely food workshop with Belgian chocolatier Elisabeth, I was a bit torn. I’ve never really discussed this on the blog, but I’ve had myself tested for food intolerances for over two years ago, and since then, I’ve been following a diet without dairy, chocolate, tomato and peppers. I made...

The Gallery at Sketch

You know what my favorite thing is about living in Belgium?  We’re so well located to explore the rest of Europe and the world, but we’re especially well located to go to Paris and (more importantly for me) London. One of my favorite cities in the world is a mere train ride away. Thank you...
Saturday in Brussels

Saturday in Brussels

 Monday, monday! How are you all doing? This is what I wore last saturday to an Elisabeth food workshop. I almost went for my bright red silk blouse that morning, but realized just in time that preparing sugary treats and delicate fabrics do not play well together. So I went for basic (but always beautiful)...
Burger Brunch

Burger Brunch

What I wore to a burger brunch at Gilles’ place last sunday. Gilles not only celebrated his birthday, but also the launch of his new website, Eat.Warm. Have a look here! So I wanted to be a bit festive but cosy at the same time, enter the pencil skirt with sneaker combo. A T-shirt to...
Home Renovation: Green Hallway

Home Renovation: Green Hallway

So, here I am with another update on the home renovation front! Back in november, I spent a long weekend painting every last inch of our hallway a deep green. It took me ages, not to mention a couple of mediocre romantic comedies in the background to get through this (This one was actually pretty...

Artwork by Michiel Pelerents

Those of you who follow me on Instagram, will probably already have seen this one, but the walls of our living room are no longer just a whiter shade of pale. No, they are now adorned by this wonderful (and giant) artwork by my good friend and multitalented artist Michiel Pelerents. Michiel always uses objects found...
