A couple of rainy days, and I'm dreaming of a new fall wardrobe. A leather perfecto, cable knit and a wool coat. In my favourite colours: black and blue. These pictures are it - I want everything. Now! Pretty please?

Take me away

Wouldn't mind to be taken away for a summer holiday... Riding a bike, soaking up sunshine, eating ice cream, swimming and lounging by a pool. Sounds like utter bliss at the moment. Counting down the days till my week abroad in September. 

Double up: white on white

Feeling hot hot hot! With the warm weather this past week, my summer wardrobe is finally getting a chance to come out and play. Short skirts, silk tops, sandals and long floaty dresses - me like. White is a great colour to wear on high summer days. Double up your whites for twice as much impact. Enjoy the sunshine!

What I loved... in June

No wonder I'm feeling a bit tired, June was one busy month. Lots of projects at work and a full social calendar. I went to an art exhibition at Kornel, by the talented  Eefje, Hermine and Mayken. Bought some nice things for the home there. Made myself a summer skirt in a leopard silk I bought at the Dries Van Noten stocksale. Catched up with friends over drinks & dinner, here and here. Got a relaxing massage and a new shorter haircut - some well deserved me-time. Cooked at a Kinfolk gathering. Delicious food, good wine and nice company - a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Because of my job I got in touch with Annemarie from Belgian blog Joy of little things. And I found out that she was hosting the first-ever Kinfolk event in Belgium. Couldn't miss that, so last Sunday I went to her cool loft in Antwerp for a cooking class. I've always been a fan of Kinfolk magazine and the beautiful photography. Their monthly events are centered around a theme, this month's: The Butcher Block. We made a chicken liver paté, fresh ricotta and ate delicious meat from Dierendonck and cheeses from Van Tricht.  Perfect way to spent a Sunday afternoon if you ask me.
