Items’14: Knitwear made in Antwerp.

04.10.2017

Hi sweeties,

New blogpost… all warm and cozy! 😊
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet the lovely Claudia de Vos from Items’14 Antwerp. What a lovely, inspiring and enthusiastic lady. She sells and distributes the most lovely hand knitted cardigans, scarfs, jumpers, beanies… Really, I fell in love with them immediately… So soft, warm, cozy & classy!! She works with natural materials like mohair, silk and Alpaca.
Between all those lovely cardigans I chose two: a long, very soft, dark blue one, and the Bubble Bubble cardigan.
They’re both very different, but oh so nice. It’s a pleasure wearing those hand made cardigans… Wanna take a look at how I’ve styled them??

I’ve combined the long blue cardigan with a silk blouse, also from Items’14 Antwerp and a ripped jeans.
Underneath, my cool black boots. It gives the look a tough appearance.


The Bubbles Bubbles Cardigan is a true HIT on Instagram… And rightly so!

I’ve combined this one with a black leather pair of trousers, also from Items’14 Antwerp. They actually fit wonderful!!
Underneath a white lace top…


Do you also love these comfy hand knitted cardigans?
Tell me: What’s your favorite one??

Lots of love,

Lena

Golden booties – Melvin & Hamilton

29.09.2017

Hi sweeties,

In this new blog post, I want to show you my new GOLDEN booties from Melvin & Hamilton. 💫
Yes, really… Shiny, sparkling, golden booties! It was love at first sight…💛💛💛


Melvin & Hamilton is a German brand, by the brothers Karim and Olivier Choukar, who handcraft footwear with a distinctive character… Every pair is so lovely to see, and finished very beautifully with a keen eye for detail.
Between all the lovely pairs, there was one that immediately caught my eye… these golden ones!!
This pair of shoes demands all your attention, they are the eye-catchers of any look. So when I was wondering how to style them…. I was thinking that the rest of my outfit had to be sober, not too many colors, not too bright…
Let’s take a look at how I styled my Golden Booties…


Can’t take my eyes off of them ;o) They are so awesome, and they fit perfectly!!

As you can see; I styled them with a pair of destroyed jeans & a big comfy, knitted sweater. Perfect for the upcoming fall days.🍂 I love these big oversized sweater-looks.
This way the attention is drawn towards the shoes, and not to the clothes. A little golden belt in my jeans matches fine with the shoes. And my favorite Chanel bag is the finishing touch of this look…


Very curious what you all think of this look… Let me know!!

If you like the boots, or another pair from Melvin & Hamilton, you can order your own pair and get €10 discount using my code: LenaxMelvin (valid on all orders above €75, until November 19, 2017)

Lots of ‘golden’ love,

Soft grey look – Repeat Cashmere

17.09.2017

Hello there sweeties!

So happy to show you this new look for fall! In collaboration with Repeat Cashmere.
I received this oh so soft grey cashmere cardigan… I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found it in my mailbox… Love at first sight!
You know, I’m not a jacket lover in the winter, I’d rather wear a cosy cardigan like this one. It will definitely be my favorite the upcoming fall months!

Let’s take a look at how I styled it…

A few weeks ago I already bought this cute little grey hat at H&M… and it turned out to be a perfect match with the grey cardigan! It’s makes the look a little bit more stylish… I love it!!
A white blouse and black pants complete this look. But I didn’t want it to be too ‘old’ or ‘stiff’… So I added my cool boots… ;o))
And that turned out to be perfect finishing touch!

A little surprise for you: You can get a 15% discount for your first order at www.repeatcashmere.com, just click on this link.

Do you love this look as much as I do?? let me know!!

Lots of love,

Lena

Outfit: These cut open boots…

04.09.2017

Hi sweeties!

It’s September already… Time goes by so fast! School started again, summer is almost over…
And yes, a new season is almost there, FALL🍂

A while ago I fell in love with these cut out boots, you’ve probably seen them on Instagram… And now, I’ve got a pair of my own, from Manfield.

I really LOVE these black cut open boots! They are very comfy!!
You know I like girly dresses but there’s also a cool, tough side to me… ;o))
So let’s take a look at how I’ve styled these boots…

With a black jeans, these boots are awesome! I like to wear some short fishnet stockings in them…
The black combines beautiful with gold, so I added a golden ‘GOLD MINE’ shirt and a gold coloured watch.
A cool, tough look but not too much…

I’m ready for fall, and some nice walks in the forest with my new boots
What do you think of this new look & my new boots??
Let me know sweeties!

Lots of Love,

Lena

Fall is just around the corner.

22.08.2017

Hi sweeties!

Did you also enjoy your summer and your summer holiday?? 😎 I had a great time in France…
Although summer is my favourite season, by the end of it I always look forward to the next wonderful season… FALL🍁🍂🌲.
Don’t you love those fall colours, warm woolen cardigans, walks in the forest…
And of course: new collections in all stores! New outfits to wear!
I selected 2 lovely dresses for you at Fashiola!
Gotta love this site: they give you lots of websites in 1 place! So you can create a new look using multiple websites. So handy!!

Let’s have a look…

The first dress is a short black & green one, with flowers. It has lovely ruffled sleeves and a waistbelt. I combined it with my black buckle biker boots, a black bag, also found at Fashiola, and a black hat.
I love this new trend: the combination of a girly dress and cool boots!!
In the fall you can still wear it bare legged, but in winter you could always wear it with a pair of black stockings and a black cardigan or a black leather jacket…

Next look: another flowered dress, but now longer and off-shoulder. I thought the short, studded boots were a better fit with this look. And my new black bag from Fashiola also went perfectly with this look… Let me show you…

Are you ready for the next season?? Take a look at Fashiola.be and create/shop your own Fall-outfits!! 🍁🍂🌳
What do you think of mine? Do you also LOVE the girly dresses in combination with the cool black ankle boots?
Let me know!

Lots of LOVE,

Opel meets fashion!

05.06.2017

Hi sweeties,

A new blogpost about my wonderful Saturday evening at the Antwerp Fashion show 2017, thanks to OPEL Belgium!

What an evening!! Last Saturday 03/06 OPEL invited me and my friend to the Antwerp fashion show… and they did it in great STYLE 

We were picked up by Opel’s NEW INSIGNIA… and they drove us to the event.
Outside the event, we were introduced to their new car CROSSLAND X….

What a lovely, hip and trendy car!! Love it!
This car is for everybody! But maybe a little more for all modern, independent women who dare to enjoy the good things in LIFE… a nice cup of coffee, taking good care of herself (mentally and physically), taking some time off in nature….

Maybe you’re asking yourself: What’s the link between a car and fashion??
It’s the design process! Designing a car is very similar to creating a fashion collection!
The new CROSSLAND X was co-designed by the Belgian Thibaut Doneux.

I was excited for this event… What was I going to wear???
This was my outfit for that evening….

A midi floral skirt from ZARA!
I combined it with a simple white shirt and a pair af white Adidas sneakers, and my pink FURLA bag… What do you think of it???
(I have gotten many compliments about it that evening… )

We had some VIP tickets for the event… so there was finger food and drinks, and some yummy desert!!
And I also met an Instagram friend Dorien… So nice to finally meet her and her boyfriend!! We had a lovely evening!!

And then the FASHION SHOW…. It was AWESOME!!! So many talented fashion designers of the future!! I really enjoyed every minute of the show!! 
Let’s take a look at some pictures of my lovely night out….

What a great time we had… Thank you OPEL for having us!!

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures of this event, and my outfit of that evening… 

Lots of LOVE,

Lena

Whether you’re going to work, picking up your kids from school or going to a party… with SVNTY you’re always looking FASHIONABLE!!

A few weeks ago I shopped for a few outfits at SVNTY… Wanna take a look at all these wonderful combinations??
I’m curious for what your favorite SVNTY look will be.

First look is this lovely summer sweater with blue/green, bling-bling peacock eyes. Have you seen the open back??

Next look is a very classy one…
I immediately fell in love with these trousers, black sweater ánd the graffiti sneakers!! (Aren’t they awesome??)

This look is sporty, sweet and soft at the same time…
Take a look at the lovely embroidery on the sweater…

In the next look it’s all about the lace back… 
When I wore those super comfy sneakers for the first time, I didn’t want to take them off anymore!!!

The Musthaves

21.03.2017

Hello! 

Spring is right around the corner. And I’m so looking forward to it! 
I could use some sunshine, and so does my wardrobe… 
The Musthaves helped me with that, and they’ve sent me 4 of their top items, real MUSTHAVES!
A black scuba skirt, a black lace body, a pink oversized sweater and a raw damaged grey t-shirt!
Wanna take a look at how I styled them?

This cute scuba skirt… I love it!!! It’s very classy in this totally black look.


And combined with the raw damaged grey t-shirt, it’s totally different… a more casual look. 

The pink oversized sweater immediately stole my heart… The soft pink color matches great with a pair of destroyed blue jeans! 

Oh and then this lace body… so nice!!! It really fits under everything! And yes… it’s kinda sexy! 

I hope I could inspire you a little bit to make your closet spring proof!! 
Go check out the lovely fashion items from The Musthaves!!

Which one is your favorite Musthave item?? I cannot choose, LOVE all 4 of them!!!

Lots of love,

Lena
