Outfit of the day: Jeans and print

It's time sun comes out, because we're almost out of clothes for fall. We're in desperate need of sunshine and we hopelessly want to show you our new summer clothes. Guess we'll have to wait. Nevertheless, enjoy the outfit of the day.

Beauty : Spring Street

A few days ago I tried out Lavender Cupcake from NYC which was a longlasting nailpolish. This nail polish is called Spring Street and it has a quickdry formula. This bright orange nail polish reminds me more of summer than spring, or is it just me? But either way I'm loving this color!

I went to the Press Days of the pr-agency Listen Up a week ago with Julie from strutterview.com and some good friends. We had an amazing time and I wanted to share some pictures with all of you. There was a really nice vibe and most collections that were presented were amazing. Some pieces would fit perfectly in my closet ;) 

I adored the collections of Supertrash and Eleven Paris, but especially Ted Baker's. Their new clothing collection and purses were so lovely. Too bad I had no time to visit some more press days because I had such a good time!

Beauty : Lavender Cupcake

I've recently been trying out some different nail polish brands and I'm pleasantly surprised of the quality of some low budget nail polishes! I tested this one from NYC and I love it. The colour is called Lavender Cupcake (what a delicious name) and it's supposed to hold for 7 days. I've just been wearing it for three days now but it has hardly chipped. I've also bought a bright orange one (Spring street), which I will be testing in a few days.

Lifestyle: welcome to my home

Since my brother and my soon-to-be sister-in-law own an apartment just five minutes away from my internship, I'm currently living here in Antwerp. Much better than the hour drive to my home. And I'm so happy to be staying here, their home is so inspirational. Plus, their two cats Filou and Basil are great company. 
So...welcome to my new place.

Hair trend : Ombre

You've probably noticed this special hairstyle becoming more and more popular. We saw some celebrities and bloggers starting the trend last year but now it's becoming more mainstream. You can easily try this yourself with an at-home coloring kit. On youtube you can find several very good DIY's. 

Some bloggers and celebs made this trend even extremer by dyeing the bottom of their hair in a pastel or bright color (like the picture of Jamie King with a blue ombre above). The pink ombre is also becoming very popular. Personally I like the ombre hair of Drew Barrymore and Lauren Conrad the most. What do you think of the ombre hair trend?

Victoria Beckham goes red

For the cover of the May issue of Harper's Bazaar China Victoria Beckham's hair was made red and she looks like a fierce video game character. I do think it's a wig however! The photos feel very Asian because of the gorgeous oriental headpieces Victoria is wearing. 

The photographer for this shoot was Chen Man. She is famous for her fashion photography in China. These photos just came out and already there's a discussion going on about the showing of Vicoria's ribcage and cleavage. 

She's quite the chameleon when it comes to her hair. Over the years Victoria has rocked several hairstyles and haircolours and they all suit her pretty well I think. My favourite is the short curly brown bob, what's yours?

Travelling: how to pack

In times of spring break, Easter and vacation, we would like to give you some packing advice. Most times you have a limited luggage weight. So pack smart. Don't take too much clothes, but try to create different looks by adding the right accessories. And when you're bored of the things you brought, go shopping on location!

Event: ELLE presents River Island summer style

When we hear the words style event, cocktails, manicures and 20% discount, we say yes ! Yesterday the brunette and I went to the River Island shop in Antwerp to do some late night shopping. The event was hosted by 5 bloggers and the Belgian fashion magazine ELLE. Funny thing: when we met at the cash desk, we both had the same necklace in our hands! Seems like Sara and I have the same great taste ;-)

We loved the cocktails (we got a free cocktailshaker, so expect a DIY soon!), the clothes and the fashionable people. The atmosphere was great and afterwards we ate french fries! The perfect end of a great evening.

Shop till you drop

This week I went shopping in Antwerp and bought such pretty things! Sorry for the quality of the pictures but I had to take them quickly because I didn't have much time and still wanted to post about this! The colours aren't exactly the same as in the pictures but it will do. 

As you probably can tell there all black or nude coloured items. I just bought some pretty basics because I feel I already have some special items in my closet to pair them with. And of course, they will be pimped up with some accessories ;) I also bought a pair of bright red earrings but forgot to take a snapshot of them! Can't wait to wear all of this!

Trend : Tangerine Dream

This spring and summer colour is booming like never before! On the streets we're spotting colourful pants, blazers, shoes and bags everywhere. I'm a big fan of this trend as it is just such a big difference from the dark colours people usually wear. 

A colour that particularly stands out this season is orange.. In all its shades. Tangerine tango is the name they invented for the reddish-orange shade like the Topshop satchel you can see at the beginning of this post. 

Orange and tangerine shades are popping up everywhere, even in make-up! Orange nails and lips are very trendy for this spring and summer. I love how orange nails bring you in an instant summery mood! 

We also saw several shades of orange passing by on the spring runway shows, for example with Marc by Marc Jacobs and Herm├Ęs. I'm a big fan of the ready-to-wear collections of Marc Jacobs. He always gets it just right. Too bad my wallet can't treat me to his beautiful creations.
