Just like Picasso and his art, me and my closet already have been through a lot of different colour phases. Black everything, the pastel period or red rage: yes this ginger has really tried it all. There’s only one colour that keeps finding its way to my outfits, no matter what: blue. No wonder our latest trip to Budapest swept me off my feet. The city clearly has the … Continue reading Bluedapest
If I could choose my favourite superhero, it’d definitely be Little Red Riding Hood. Or wait, do you need more than cuteness and an awesome red cape to bear that label? As a redhead, I always thought red (clothes) on red (hair) was a no-go. It was only after a colour consultant told me it was just a matter of finding the right shade that I dared to try the … Continue reading Red Riding in the Elle Hood
Hi there shipmates! As if Summer decided to make sure everyone noticed she officially started, a heatwave struck Belgium last week. 36°C and an airco-less office made me go look for places to cool down during lunchtime. The port of Antwerp seemed to be the perfect spot: a cooling breeze, cozy lunch-spots and an amazing view on the incoming boats.

Next brick on the life house … Continue reading Brick by Brick

Other than being overexcited for my first official – welcome to the grown-up world – experience, I have to admit it also quite scared me. Always the same recipe on first days, no? The cocktail of thrill of new beginnings and slight panick of making the right choices. One of those dilemmas: what … Continue reading Kimono? Kimoyes!
Nope, sorry to mislead you guys, this is not a commercial about some kind of magical ginger hairspray. Instead, I’d like to introduce you to my second best goldilocked friend: my bike. I can’t really remember what colour it originally had, but let’s say I like to pimp my ride from time to time. As life’s too short for boring colours, I went for gold and added … Continue reading Paint it Gold
Did you know the word jumpsuit originally referred to the garments of parachuters and skydivers? While dungerees are taking over the summer of 2015, play- and jumpsuits have been filling the empty – it’s a matter of perspective, mom – spaces in my wardrobe for quite some time now. It’s the perfect way of combining convenience and class without having to lose hours in front of your wardrobe trying to pick … Continue reading Take your parachute and jump(suit)!
