Sorry for not posting or posting so late. I just have so much stuff going on right now.
Just a quick post about what I’m wearing today
ZARA shirt – FOREVER21 skirt – Unknown brand necklace – KURT GEIGER sandals
So as I am writing, it’s my last night in the US and I feel so sad, it was SUCH a great stay. I actually just finished packing, and I can’t even express how happy I am that EVERYTHING fits in my suitcase!
I haven’t uploaded the pictures from my camera yet, so I’ll just leave you with of few Istagram pictures, most of them taken before my trip.
Enjoying the little of sun we’ve had in Belgium
These Essentiel babies LITERALLY saved my ass during this trip
Should that hairdo be a new trend? Deeply thinking about it…
I do wake up with that hairdo every morning. Seriously.
Brussels Airlines treatin’ us just fine
First muffins I’ve ever made, so freaking proud!

Hello guys, what’s up?
Did you have a good weekend?
Mine was pretty awesome! It included parties and walking around the city, discovering new places, which was awesome.
We partied friday, then saturday I walked around the city, it felt like I walked every single streets that Manhattan counts. Can’t even tell you how tired I was when I came back to the appartement. Saturday night, first of all I wanted to dress casual, but I most of all wanted to wear flat shoes, so here I am with my new pair of converse (which felt like heaven),denim shorts and a sweat shirt.
Wearing: FOREVER21 sweat shirt – DIESEL shorts – CONVERSE sneakers
So here is my first post with a few pictures taken during my stay (it was tonight actually).
Here is the outfit I wore to go to the restaurant (an amazing Japanese restaurant in Brooklyn – Samurai Mama) then drinks at Urban Pool, which is such a cool bar also in Brooklyn.
I decided to take the outfit pictures in the subway, because I really liked how it looks.
I got the skirt in my favourite shop in DC, which is called Mustard Seed (I’ll talk to you more about it later). It’s an old Forever21, it’s fake leather but it does the trick pretty well, and it was only 5$
Wearing: AMERICAN COLLEGE jacket – ZARA tee & heels – FOREVER21 skirt – ZARA bag
Do you like my outfit?
Have a great weekend xx
I’ve made a selection of the best and the worst look, already posted on my Facebook Fan Page.
Anne Consigny in Alexis Mabille Couture
I love this one, I dream about a dress like this event though I’m not sure it would fit as good as her.
The color, the little knot in the front, the sparkliness… Hello little princess!
Eww how would you EVER consider wearing THAT dress on a red carpet!
Diane Kruger on the first day, in her first Red Carpet look. It’s like if she was saying « If you were expecting bad red carpet looks from me this year, then just go back to your mama because I’m gonna rock it! ». And she did…
One of my favorite dress seen at this year’s Cannes Festival!
Freida Pinto in Michael Anger
I really really love this! Really girly and really fun
I want this dress, there is not much more to be said here.
Here we go, my favorite look of the festival!
It is just plain perfect, I have nothing more to add.
Kristen, once again, not doing it for me.
Not working at all, especially the hideous shape!
Pretty sad one, because usually Jane does a really good job on the red carpet!
This is NOT working at all for me. The shape, the color,…
Janet Jackson in Emilio Pucci
The dress isn’t that great (I mean, WHEN would you choose a dress like this one when going to CANNES!?), it doesn’t even fit her, and please why would you show those ugly fake boobs?
Kelly Brooks in The Blonds
No way. Not in Cannes!
Kristen Dunst in Louis Vuitton
Welcome back in Barbie World, the only place on earth where this dress is admitted
Looks like something has confused the Festival’s steps with the Church’s steps?
Even though I like white dresses, this reminds me way too much of a (bad) wedding gown.
I do not understand this.
Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior
With that outfit, she certainly won the Palmes of the worst grandma outfit. Ew
Plus, being as short as Kim is, I would NEVER wear booties going that high with such a mini dress.

The love story between me and the United States exists since a few years now.
It actually started on August 2000, when at 12 years old, I went with my parents to California. It took me not even a day to fall in love with the country (imagine, being 12 years old, and entering a really girly shop where you can get your nails done for free? And have the best breakfast you ever had, even if it includes sausages, and you don’t understand why anyone would eat that in the morning)
After that holliday, the idea of doing a year abroad, in the USA grew up in my mind. A few years later, I was in the plane, flying to NYC ready to start a year as an exchange student. I can’t express how good it felt to arrive there. I have lived in Hamden Connecticut, and Washington DC. As you can guess, I’m a East Coast kind of girl.
During that year abroad, my love for the United States grew even more, and even if I had a rough year, I had to be strong and stay until the end, at least to enjoy more days on the US ground.
Coming back home wasn’t easy, I was really missing America. What did I miss (and what do I still miss)?
Well there are a few things:
- my host family and friends
- the fact to be able to be whoever you want, or actually just being yourself, without being judged
- the FOOOD
- the people! I love when I randomly walk in the street and someone comes up to me to tell me how much they like my outfit.
- the shopping (no kidding)
- the feeling that everything is possible (american dream you say?)
- the DC metro (how random is that?)
- and there is much more, but which are impossible to explain
As you may know, Brussels Airlines launched a new connections that does Brussels – New York, and I happend to be on the first flight, which was pretty cool!
One of the coolest thing was the « salute » of belgians firemen in Zaventem, then new yorkers firemen in JFK (here is Zaventem)
For me, this new flight connection is not only an easier way to go to NYC (of course it will be so much easier, cheaper, and for a really nice flight), but it makes me closer to my friends and familly, and closer to all of those feelings. Now, if I have the need to go back or to see my friends, it’s good to know that I’m just a flight away from them…
…and what a flight!
I have been to the USA quite a few times now, so I guess I can tell when an Airlines or a flight is worth it. And I was really impressed by Brussels Airlines. First of all, the plane looks brand new (it has USB entry in the screen which is REALLY good to have). The seats are not only spacious and confortable (alright, I had two seats for myself with makes it even nicer, I admit).
The crew is one of the NICEST I’ve ever had! And they feed us all the time haha. The food was delicious (indian), and I got one lunch, an ice cream, and even a fajitas (which happend to be perfect, because I couldn’t eat for the next 10 hours, looks like Brussels Airlines saved my life on this one).
I can tell you, there is something happening between me and that airline…
I was lucky enough to have a preview of the new crew collection made by Xandres the day before
And how happy was I to see that the outfit appeared exactly the same, from the shoes, to the dress and the scarf, or even the perfect hairdo! It reminded me a lot of the series PANAM, with a little touch of vintage glamour
I did try to do something artistic between my face and Brussels Airlines logo in the bathroom of the plane… obviously, didn’t come out that great hahaha
Because I know you all wish to see what my travel outfit looks like, here is a glimpse of it. Yes, of course my shoes matched the colors of the Airlines on purpose!
I have a new hotspot to introduce to you today. How come many cool places open all at once?
Don’t you LOVE mexican food? I know I do. But in Brussels, it’s one of the hardest type of food to fine, or at least a good mexican restaurant (you don’t even want to know what I have eaten in some places before…)
This one is not only delicious, but also has a pretty cool interior, and amazing terrace and the price level is really reasonable.
Take a look:
I tried the chicken Burrito, and my boyfriend took the chicken Fajitas
It was delicious! And for only 14€ and 16€.
The place is also a bar at night, and does Take Away.
463, Av de la Couronne – 1050 Brussels (Cimetière d’Ixelles)
I don’t only LOVE those pictures, but I also WANT every single piece of clothing we see on them!
I WANT this look!

Tonight is the first Apéro Urbain of the season 2012!
Alright, you probably know that as you’re reading this, I’m actually on the plane for NYC, but anyway, I wanted to share something very exciting with you.
I’ve been working at the Apéros Urbains since a few years, behind the bar. But this year, I wanted to do something different, something more me. Spending evening behind my bar looking at everyone, I realized that a lot people were so well put together, great styles.
That’s how we got the idea to do a Streetstyle at the Apéros Urbains every friday, but not only. I will also give you my tips on what to wear the following friday, depending on the weather and the location. Just like I did last year, but on my blog, remember?
You will find the Streetstyle pictures and the outfit tips on the Apéros Urbains Blog
Here are a few great looks I spotted during the last season of the Apéros Urbains
Can’t wait to spot all of you looking fabulous!
By the way, even though I’m not there the first two friday’s, my eyes will be!
