Tropical dress up party



I love dress up parties! It's nice to have no clothing boundaries for once. It's cool to wear a pink wig and start laughing when everyone stares at you while you're biking. It's liberating to feel like you're someone else.

I threw a birthday party in February in tropical style (although my birthday was in December). Everyone brought a pineapple as an entrance ticket and dressed up very aloha-y! I was wearing a flower crown from H&M, vintage earrings, banana leaves printed blouse from Topshop and a pineapple printed skirt from H&M.

Here's a small playlist of tropical songs that were played at the party plus some outfit inspiration, if you feel like throwing a tropical party yourself! I had so much fun organizing and partying that I threw a second dress-up party (more on that later)!

Decorating my room for Spring

Hello there ! 

One thing that you should know about me is that I'm crazy about decorating my room. Every now and then, I rearrange my room and design new corners. This mostly happens when I buy a new piece of furniture/clothing or even when I see a nice photograph in a magazine. I love to build around these items. I also love working with themes, for instance I change my clothing rack every season. I bought these 5 clothing hangers at Hay in Antwerp. I chose pastels this season, last winter I chose to display 5 pieces of my favorite black clothes.

I like to put my clothes, shoes and jewelry on display because it's nicer to have them in your room than to put them away in your closet! I love the fact that my rooms feels like my favorite store in the world. My walls are painted silver because it lights up the room and because I think it's a cool color that you can combine with pretty much everything!

Unfortunately I had to leave my favorite store in the world for a much smaller room in Amsterdam, which is great as well but where I also have less freedom to decorate as I want. I arrived last weekend and I'll be spending the next 3 months here for my internship. Life in Amsterdam is awesome and so is my internship. I'll talk about that in the next post and also give you some tips of where to spend your time here.

How do you decorate your room? Do you like to create little corners as well? Tell me!

xo, Charlotte

Tropical bomber jacket + Mø hairdo

Hi !


How is life you guys? Mine is great! Last week, I had delicious sushi made by a real Sushi Sensei. On Friday, I went to an awesome party in Gent called ABSTRKT. First, my friends and me had pizza and drinks (at Eatlove Pizza) because our friend Suzanne is going to Istanbul for 5 months. I'll be visiting her for sure but I'm gonna miss her a lot. Be sure to check out ABSTRKT. I truly recommend it to anyone who likes good house music and an amazing atmosphere!

White Lady cocktails - best ever! / MØ and her awesome hairdo / Louis, me and a giant pizza
Also, I have a new item in my closet, although I kinda promised myself not to buy any piece of clothing. But this one doesn't really count: my mum bought it for me because I passed my exams! Woooo happy dance!


What do you think about my new tropical bomber jacket? And what about the hairdo: fashion faux pas or yes puhlease? Let me know!

Ahmagad it's a blog post!

♡ Hi there 

First of all, I'd like to wish you all a ... late happy new year! YAY!


I celebrated NYE with friends, lots of fireworks and good food (and gin&tonics). I was wearing a black open back top from Asos, black skinny jeans and bright red lips.


Secondly, I take up blogging as of today! My exams are almost over and I've got a lot of stuff to share. I've decided to share more visual stuff with you since that is where my ambitions are: photography, styling and illustrations.

Time for some updates:

Newsflash #1 In March, I'm going back to Amsterdam for my internship! I still have some analog photographs I haven't showed you yet from last year. I love the pictures because they are in black and white and still have a certain summery feeling mixed with nostalgia.


Newsflash #2 my obsession with pineapples is still continuing. It's for the rest of my life I guess. I'm throwing a themed birthday party in February. Everybody goes t-r-o-p-i-c-a-l!



Newsflash #3 I decided to buy less clothes until the Summer. I mean, I have to! I'm planning on making a road trip to the US and Canada with my best friend and visit my dear Amsterdam friends from across the ocean! So I'm gonna need a lot of moneh, which means less visits to Asos.com.



Newsflash #4 You can prelisten Warpaint's new album on Luisterpaal! Warpaint is a four-girl band from L.A. and they ROCK. All the songs are great, but my favorites are Love Is To Die, Teese, CC, Drive and Son.
