Leather and Layers

Montreal, is that you all nice and hot?? Not sure how much longer I can sport leather legs in this warming weather, but I’m not complaining about the balmy temperatures this week!

These were taken on my last day with my family, and it was so bittersweet. As sad as I am to not be flying back home to Brussels with them this week, I’m also excited to get back to my new apartment and the amazing city that Montreal is. That same bittersweet feeling was the inspiration… Read more »

first impressions: NATO

First impressions; love them or hate them, you can’t escape them. Today was my first day at my NATO internship and it’s safe to say my #2 priority (#1 was showing up on time) was dress to impress. One of my rules of thumb is to always look your best because you never know who you… Read more »
