From rocketships and airports to grocery stores, Chanel definitely knows how to transform the Grand Palais into something magical! The last Chanel Fall Winter collection setting was exactly that: a magical forest with giant trees that lined up the runway. This autumnal wonderland has definitely inspired me for my latest collaboration with Chanel…</font></span></span></span></p> <p><span style="caret-color:#000000"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-family:Helvetica"><font size="3">For me personally, autumn is my favourite season. There is nothing more romantic than watching colorful leaves fall, spending hours at home with a good book and some hot tea and snuggling up with my cat Bobke. Watching nature’s gorgeous transformation is just so soothing and relaxing… so when I was in New York for Fashion Week, I had to take an early morning walk in Central Park! It’s the perfect moment to drink my coffee, to reflect on my busy day and to get some fresh ideas for the weeks to come. As for my first outfit, I opted for a cozy two-piece knitted set and one of my favourite Chanel bags ever. It’s soooo fluffy and cozy that it reflects exactly my mood at this moment!</font></span></span></span></p> <p><span style="caret-color:#000000"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-family:Helvetica"><font size="3">Stay tuned for the next part of my Chanel Central Park series… so excited!

FINALLY! So many of you have asked what it's like to explore Brazil with a baby, I thought I'd share... So if you want to travel to one of my favourite countries in the world with a mini and are curious to find out more about vaccines, baby food, things to do, and everything to bring: read along!</p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20IMG_3561_LR2.jpg?itok=jz0s_sgp 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20IMG_3561_LR2.jpg?itok=WW2KDFDy 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20IMG_3561_LR2.jpg?itok=KvFJGl0G 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="a141ac0b-42ce-43ff-9677-cac2bc3f9715" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20IMG_3561_LR2.jpg?itok=WW2KDFDy" alt="rio" /></picture></p> <p><strong>MINI'S 1ST BDAY &amp; VACCINES</strong></p> <p>I haven't shared this before, but we had actually already planned to visit Brazil with Gabriel last year during the Holidays. He was about 7 months at the time and we thought it would be totally fine to bring him, so we booked our tickets and were super excited to go! But ... when we went to get our shots (we went to the <a href="https://www.itg.be/N" target="_blank">Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp</a>), our doctor told us that it's not advisable to travel to Brazil before your baby's first birthday. Apparently, their immune system is still developing so much that it's kind of risky to go to a 'tropical' destination. Of course, it's perfectly possible that nothing will happen and your baby will have a healthy trip, but we just didn't want to take that risk. So if you're planning a trip to Brazil it's best to wait until your baby's first bday and definitely don't forget to pay a visit to your doctor's office beforehand to get all the necessary shots!</p> <p><strong>NO BLING BLING</strong></p> <p>This is kind of a general remark and probably well known, but Brazil has some not-so-safe places. Marcio grew up there and has some chilling stories that will make you be extra careful when you choose your go-to spots. We usually go to <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/travel/natural-wonders-rio-de-janeiro-my-hotspots-guide" target="_blank">Rio de Janeiro</a> (one of my favourite cities ever ever!) or smaller more 'untouched' places as <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/just-me/my-5-brazilian-senses-smell" target="_blank">Itacaré</a> or the island of <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/picture-perfect-paradise-rio-de-janeiro-buzios" target="_blank">Buzios</a>. Basically, it just comes down to being a bit 'street smart': don't wear expensive jewellery out, or flash big cameras or your iPhone. I know this sounds high maintenance but I actually find it kind of nice to be forced to disconnect and go back to basics! :)</p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20ipanema%20IMG_3910_LR.jpg?itok=2d5Qho6t 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20ipanema%20IMG_3910_LR.jpg?itok=jk8VLMKT 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20ipanema%20IMG_3910_LR.jpg?itok=ikWkV5_k 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="02070a71-6bb7-437e-845f-ad944b8c51ab" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20bebe%20ipanema%20IMG_3910_LR.jpg?itok=jk8VLMKT" alt="rio" /></picture></p> <p><strong>GOOGLE TRANSLATE PLSE!</strong></p> <p>Something that might surprise you is that even in big cities as Rio not everyone will speak English (well). So make sure to have a translating app on hand just in case you need to communicate something important on the spot. Don't worry about this too much though, because people are usually very helpful and patient so you'll definitely find your way around!</p> <p><strong>MINI FOOD: RESTAURANTS &amp; SUPERMARKETS</strong></p> <p>You guys already know that one of my main activities on vacation is ... eat! I just love trying out new flavours and going to supermarkets abroad (super weird I know haha). So it's definitely not necessary to bring baby or toddler food to Brazil. They have the most amazing selection of fresh fruits &amp; veggies (if you want to make homemade purees) and fresh coconut water (Gabriel loves it!). I do have to say that for some reason formula milk and diapers are 2 to 3 times more expensive here, but it still beats lugging all that with you on the plane, right? As for restaurants, Brazilians LOVE minis! They're so helpful and when your baby starts being fussy, they'll just take over so you can enjoy your meal in peace. Honestly the sweetest!</p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/riocollage.jpg?itok=XBrpw2b5 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/riocollage.jpg?itok=G5V3Rurg 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/riocollage.jpg?itok=yILX3sML 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="496e3e87-b324-48c0-9964-56c5bcd8f5ac" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/riocollage.jpg?itok=G5V3Rurg" alt="rio" /></picture></p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/Rio%20cristo%20yellow%20dress%20IMG_2683_LR2_0.jpg?itok=flqtL_Gs 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20cristo%20yellow%20dress%20IMG_2683_LR2_0.jpg?itok=AbAwsD_8 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/Rio%20cristo%20yellow%20dress%20IMG_2683_LR2_0.jpg?itok=JqlDQ1rs 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="18d91939-6d9c-4765-8d80-801b3ebc375a" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Rio%20cristo%20yellow%20dress%20IMG_2683_LR2_0.jpg?itok=AbAwsD_8" alt="rio" /></picture></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>MINI ACTIVITIES: BEACH, THE CHRIST &amp; SUGARLOAF MOUNTAINS</strong></p> <p>First things first about going to the beach in Brazil: Brazilians embrace all body types! Curvy or skinny or something in between; you see it all, and all in tiny bikinis! :) So it's just about the most comfortable place to show off your post-baby body with no worries at all! (which shouldn't worry you anyway of course, 'cause you just made a human) <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/sandy-toes-beach-bums-gabriels-first-family-beach-day" target="_blank">Going to the beach</a> is always one of my favourite things to do with a mini, but in Brazil it's just extra fun! I would advise to bring your own sunscreen (SPF 50+ for your mini, of course) because it's one of those very expensive items here (whyyy tho?), and a <a href="https://www.babyzen.com/en/accessoires-yoyo" target="_blank">mosquito net</a> &amp; repellent (we usually just use a basic one like <a href="https://www.newpharma.be/pharmacie/care-plus/513486/care-plus-anti-insect-deet-30-gel-80ml.html" target="_blank">Deet 30</a>, but <a href="https://www.degeleflamingo.com/products/linea-mamma-baby-muggenspray?utm_medium=cpc&amp;utm_source=googlepla&amp;variant=12094836146246&amp;gclid=CjwKCAjwkYDbBRB6EiwAR0T_-grsqDY14wxjTYEgo7OdrqLzeK_jReYppLoNe5bbZPJ251mxeQyoqhoCoLcQAvD_BwE" target="_blank">this one</a>'s so cute!) are also a must. Don't forget to bring swim diapers too, 'cause you flat out can't find them anywhere here.</p> <p>And then, as for other activities, you can't beat the classics! The world famous Christ statue is amazing in real life, but can get super crowded! Same for the Sugarloaf mountains (you can take a cart up there and have the BEST views over Rio) and botanical gardens... Our strategy is usually to go as early as possible, to avoid the biggest crowds and enjoy it before the heat kicks in.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Have you ever been to Brazil?

It feels so nice to recharge and to see my friends and family again... It's sometimes so much fun to just hang in the sofa with my cat Bobke, to bing watch some series and to take it easy at home! Anyways, this is what I'm wearing today for running errands in my hometown. Leopard is a huge trend for fall and I decided to wear it with my new loafers and a colourful bag to add a touch of fun.

Whenever we're here on a Sunday I always go to my parents and big brother to hang out. It's my favourite thing to do, and I love that Marcio is such a family nerd too!</p> <p><strong>2 // I've never had a real workout routine.</strong></p> <p>Okay, I'm kind of embarrassed about this one, but the truth is that I've never had a real workout routine in my life. I often get asked about this as well, and though I do squeeze in the occasional run I don't have a gym membership or anything. I feel like my life is too irregular to build up a descent routine, but maybe that's just an excuse? I definitely hope to get to it some day!</p> <p><strong>3 // I wanted to be a professional chef before I started blogging</strong></p> <p>I already mentioned this here and there but people still seem to be surprised about it: I always wanted to be a professional chef when I was younger! Until I got a taste of what it's like irl during an internship at a hotel in Paris, and I was like: no thanks haha. But I still love to cook, it really relaxes me so much. So I try to do it as often as I can!</p> <p><strong>4 // I never buy sweets in boxes because I know no limits when it comes to treats.</strong></p> <p>This is kind of a neurotic one, but I honestly always freak out when I get sweets delivered to my door because I have zero self-control when it comes to yummy things. I'm definitely a 'just one more...' person, so annoying! So here's to individually packed candy. (ps: please don't stop sending me sweets tho)</p> <p><strong>5 // I'm very messy (my dressing is the worst mess!) and a huge procrastinator when it comes to cleaning up.</strong></p> <p>I'm anything but a procrastinator in life but when it comes to cleaning up, I'm just the worst. It actually took getting pregnant to make me clean out my second dressing so <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/a-cosy-place-for-our-boy-the-baby-room-reveal" target="_blank">we could transform it into a baby room</a>. Whenever magazines propose to organise a shoot in my dressing, I'm like 'uhmmm... give me a minute'.</p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/Paris%20eiffel%20tower%20MBF_6153_HR.jpg?itok=pGD_TNSD 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Paris%20eiffel%20tower%20MBF_6153_HR.jpg?itok=UMG2rkk- 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/Paris%20eiffel%20tower%20MBF_6153_HR.jpg?itok=hLUV_AU8 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="1fb8eac2-c464-4391-b8de-db18ac5286a2" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Paris%20eiffel%20tower%20MBF_6153_HR.jpg?itok=UMG2rkk-" alt="paris blue dress" /></picture></p> <p><strong>6 // I've tried to learn Marcio's native language Portuguese a couple of times but so far I'm only fluent in ordering food.</strong></p> <p>Another embarrassing one: ever since Marcio &amp; I started dating (11 years ago!) I wanted to pick up Portuguese. I actually went so far to take a couple of lessons but ended up only mastering ordering food. Ugh priorities... So I'm definitely very focused on Gabriel picking up Portuguese from a very young age on, fingers crossed!</p> <p><strong>7 // I was truly a bit bummed when I found out that we weren't having a girl but now, if I want to have another baby, I really want it to be a boy again.</strong></p> <p>I was naturally mostly focused on the health of the baby, but when we were ready to know the gender, I was a teeny tiny bit disappointed that it wasn't a girl! It just seemed so much easier at the time to connect with a girl. But how I was wrong! I love to be mama to a boy, even so much so that I kind of adore the idea of being a 'boys' mama', should we go for another baby. Thanks, Rachel Zoe! :)</p> <p><strong>8 // There's a part of me that wants to try out hair extensions so badly.</strong></p> <p>Here's the thing: I have very fine hair that basically does its own thing. And I <em>know</em> that since I have a long narrow face long hair won't suit me, but somewhere deep down I would love to try out hair extensions anyway. I just think it'll feel so nice to run my fingers through my long hair and do amazing hair flips. Anyone else who has this?? </p> <p><strong>9 // I love love love going to foreign supermarkets, it's my no. 1 thing I do when we travel.</strong></p> <p>I know I mentioned this before but it's something most people find pretty weird, so I guess it has to be in the list. One of my all-time favourite things to do when we're traveling is to go to the supermarket and take hours to make a whole selection of new-to-me items. From face masks to weird snacks and exotic fruits: I need to try it ALL!</p> <p><strong>10 // My feet got bigger during my pregnancy and haven't reduced ever since.</strong></p> <p>Yup, imagine the drama. You hear about swollen feet during pregnancy a lot but I did not expect them to actually grow so much! And even worse: to never return to their original size. You guys know I have a big shoe collection so it kind of broke my fashion heart to not be able to wear most of my super high heels. I don't know when I'll be able to get rid of my favourite pairs, maybe I'll just keep them forever as deco, or maybe I do want a baby girl after all haha.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Now that you know literally everything about me, time to spill the beans on your embarrassing secrets!

But one thing I've never covered is the challenge of entertaining your baby on an airplane! It's something I totally underestimated on our first long flight to Tokyo back in April. Preoccupied with a billion other things pre-flight, I just brought Gabriel's usual toys for the plane without thinking twice. He's a super active baby by nature (spunky Brazilian much :)) so you can guess the end result: we left the flight with about half the toys we boarded with, because he joyfully spread them around haha. Most toys are designed to roll and bounce - anything to entertain little eyes! But that also means they easily bounce their way around, never to be found again when moving space is limited. So yep, I learned the hard way that entertaining a baby on an airplane takes a little prep, so I hope this little list of plane-proof baby toys will get you on your way. Happy travels, everyone! :)</p> <p> </p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/Brussels%20airport%20bebe%20IMG_0035_LR.jpg?itok=MaDyVCXu 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Brussels%20airport%20bebe%20IMG_0035_LR.jpg?itok=IqZ7CsxA 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/Brussels%20airport%20bebe%20IMG_0035_LR.jpg?itok=bfLVtAU_ 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="d16ee160-61ef-472f-9d95-3ec601c8ea3b" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/Brussels%20airport%20bebe%20IMG_0035_LR.jpg?itok=IqZ7CsxA" alt="entertain baby on an airplane" /></picture></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>FIRST THINGS FIRST: A NIGHT FLIGHT</strong></p> <p>This is a no-brainer but may be underestimated if you've never flown with a little one before: always always always try to book a night flight! It's just so much easier when a flight is scheduled around your mini's bedtime, so you can at least (hopefully) enjoy a few moments of rest. Try to recreate his usual evening routine on the plane as much as possible, with a last bottle, a little story, and cosy blanket. Fingers crossed!</p> <p><strong>IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS</strong></p> <p>Another obvious one: rest assure that travelling with a baby will never ever be light so when it comes to toys, you really want to focus on pieces that are small &amp; lightweight. This might seem easy peasy, but keep in mind that they should also be pieces that don't scatter around all the time and can't be swallowed. Sooo... time for my personal faves? :)</p> <p><strong>STICKERS ARE LIFE</strong></p> <p>Hands down my favourite entertainment for a mini on the airplane are stickers! <a href="https://www.hema.be/nl/winkel/kind/speelgoed/knutselen-tekenen/tekenen-schilderen/kleurboek-met-stickers-(15910002)?variant=15910002" target="_blank">Sticker books</a> are a guaranteed success because they ask for a LOT of attention that will keep you mini quiet for quite some time. And if you have a window seat <a href="https://www.lobbes.nl/speelgoed/creatief-en-hobby/knutselen/stickers/detail/3310301-ses-raamstickers-boerderij?utm_source=googleshop&amp;utm_medium=shop&amp;utm_term=3310301&amp;utm_campaign=gs_speelgoed&amp;gclid=Cj0KCQjwv-DaBRCcARIsAI9sba8PcKw6njmIamTf5fl-SH51McUc-CQrONys2AYMcu97im1NzwJKh8EaAld3EALw_wcB" target="_blank">window stickers</a> will surely earn you some cool points as well (my favourites are the ones with farm animals haha, but if you're baby's a little older the alphabet ones are a great alternative too!).</p> <p> </p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/ENTERTAIN%20BABY.002.jpeg?itok=w3nZV2iP 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/ENTERTAIN%20BABY.002.jpeg?itok=3bEowIxu 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/ENTERTAIN%20BABY.002.jpeg?itok=mMgwAx7c 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="9c698961-fb36-405f-b520-81f8ce268cae" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" src="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/ENTERTAIN%20BABY.002.jpeg?itok=3bEowIxu" alt="entertain baby on an airplane" /></picture></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS</strong></p> <p>I have the BEST memories of reading stories as a kid together with my mama &amp; brother, so I've always embraced telling stories to Gabriel. And since he's always super active it's a nice way to wind down &amp; chill a little. If you're baby's still small <a href="https://www.hema.be/nl/winkel/baby/babyspeelgoed/leren-ontdekken/baby-knisperboekje-(33583809)?variant=33583809" target="_blank">textured or sound books</a> are a great option to keep him entertained (but obviously skip the super noisy ones to not drive your fellow passengers completely mad :)).</p> <p><strong>BABY TV</strong></p> <p>He probably has it from his papa (tech nerd :)) but this baby of ours looooves his iPad! It doesn't keep him quiet for hours but when his favourite shows (such as the Brazilian Galinha Pintadinha) come on he's happy to watch them for a little while. Try to avoid electronics right before nap time as they can get kiddos a bit hyper. But other than that: go right ahead and turn that iPad onnn!</p> <p><strong>FINGER PUPPETS SHOW</strong></p> <p>A more 'old school' favourite are finger puppets! They come in all different shapes &amp; sizes but the <a href="https://www.hema.be/nl/winkel?searchtext=vingerpopje" target="_blank">animal</a> ones are Gabriel's no. 1. They're super cheap (so not a drama if they get lost), don't bounce and you can make fun stories up, so it's kinda entertaining for mama too haha.</p> <p><strong>MINI PRESENTS FOR THE GOOD BABES</strong></p> <p>Nothing is more exciting for a baby (or any human being :)) than unwrapping a present. So if you want to make any of the above goodies extra entertaining, make them into tiny presents that your mini can unwrap every hour or so, as a reward for being good. Sure, it's totally bribing but if it ensures a peaceful flight it's just worth it. :) You can also wrap some snacks to give around feeding time or small <a href="https://www.degeleflamingo.com/collections/op-het-strand" target="_blank">beach toys</a> he can use on arrival (smart packing! ;)).</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>What are your favourite ways to entertain a baby on an airplane?

always a bit sad when it's over. I always have so much fun! This year, I had a bit more time to go and explore Paris, and with the amazing weather it was even better. :) We stayed at the beautiful <a href="https://www.maisonbreguet.com" target="_blank">Maison Breguet</a>, a super elegant boutique hotel close to the Marais district, one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris. Our room felt so homey and they also had an amazing spa &amp; pool (perfect if you're in Paris during a heatwave, like we were :)). And o my, what could be better than having your fresh croissants, oeufs bénédictes and café au lait outside in their cute little garden??</p> <p>And speaking of enjoying your food al fresco: one night we had dinner at <a href="https://loulou-paris.com/welcome/" target="_blank">Lou Lou</a> and it was the best! It's not easy to find a restaurant terrace in Paris with such an amazing view of both the Eiffel Tower and the Musée du Louvre. We had the truffle pizza, sooo yummy!!&nbsp;</p> <p>In between our strolls and Eiffel Tower views, I couldn't help but stop by one of my favourite kids' stores in Paris, <a href="https://www.lepetitsouk.fr" target="_blank">Le Petit Souk</a>. Gabriel is going to a bday party next week so we bought this <a href="https://www.lepetitsouk.fr/mobiles-et-musique/6575-liewood-mobile-musical-lapin.html" target="_blank">Liewood musical bunny</a>&nbsp;(made from 100% organic cotton), always a hit with little ones!&nbsp;Another afternoon we took a break from going to shows to visit the beautiful <a href="https://www.messika.com" target="_blank">Messika</a> showroom. They had the most amazing necklace that <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbMqWXnpXcA" target="_blank">Beyoncé wore in her latest video</a>, sooo pretty!! All in all, we had such a great time in Paris, only a shame that we didn't stay until the World Cup finale. ;)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Have you been to Paris recently?

I'm always on the lookout for cute kids' brands for Gabriel (so hard to find!) so I was pretty excited to go to the <a href="https://www.bonpoint.com/be/" target="_blank">Bonpoint SS19</a> show, in between all the grown up shows. :) Since it was my first ever children's show I wasn't sure what to expect but nothing could've prepared me for ALL the feels I was going to have watching the little ones show off the newest Bonpoint designs. I love to try out different styles for Gabriel, from <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/barcelona-with-a-baby-the-cactus-gardens" target="_blank">cool Adidas tracksuits</a> to <a href="https://www.fashionata.com/a-dreamy-eiffel-tower-picnic-with-our-baby-boy" target="_blank">more polished look</a>s, but the Bonpoint classics-with-a-French-touch are always a hit - no matter the occasion. There's something so cute about miniature versions of 'regular' clothes that mama could easily wear too (yep, that's a hint ;)), don't you think? Tiny striped shirts, chino pants, sports jackets for the boys and printed Sumer dresses, gingham beach bags and ruffled linen tops for the girls: who wouldn't want it all!</p> <p>O and can we also talk about my look for the show! :) I picked out this <a href="http://www.jatual.com" target="_blank">Jatual</a> layered dress because it literally works for every occasion too. I just love the clever mix of dark denim and a pleated silky fabric, and of course the cut is amazing! I just paired it with a few layered necklaces, my red <a href="https://nicogiani.com/?lang=en" target="_blank">Nico Giani</a> bag&nbsp;and my metallic <a href="https://www.dior.com/couture/fr_be/mode-femme/souliers/sandale-dioramour-en-veau-velours-noir-coeur-en-studs-dore-16-60306" target="_blank">Dior</a> sandals.

From 'Free the Nipple' bustiers to maxi printed capes:&nbsp;the message was pretty, eh, clear. And even apart from these pieces the entire collection was so powerful &amp; bold. I loved all the feather-inspired details, such as the feathered bustier dress &amp; matching gloves, and the white dress with ruffled edges. Flying without wings: it's o so easy in these yummy designs!</p> <p>I went for an equally bossy look in a bustier topped suit from <a href="http://elenareva.com" target="_blank">Elenareva</a>, metallic <a href="https://www.dior.com/couture/fr_be/mode-femme/souliers/sandale-dioramour-en-veau-velours-noir-coeur-en-studs-dore-16-60306" target="_blank">Dior</a> sandals and a <a href="https://www.dior.com/home/fr_be" target="_blank">Dior</a> pouch.&nbsp;It honestly made me feel to confident, I love when an outfit does that! And of course I was inspired by JPG's iconic bustier perfume bottle (that recently regained lots of attention thanks to a certain Kardashian whose newest fragrance appeared to have a pretty similar bottle :)). It was either the bustier thing&nbsp;or stripes haha. Anyways, I felt super inspired after the show and ready to kick ass!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are your thoughts on this bold collection?

There's just nothing more dreamy than&nbsp;big flowy soft pink silk dresses, delicately embroidered with strategic bling, and with matching stiletto heels. Or how about a huge tule version with a bustier and golden leaf effect?? There's so many things that go through my mind when I see these creations pass by, from 'I need more royal parties in my life' to 'Could I get away with wearing this to my next family reunion'. Basically, just frantically trying to find excuses to have all these beauties in my life haha. Also, can we talk about those amazing matching silk capes? What a powerful statement to make and just about the best way to make your princess dress a bit less girly. And that's exactly what I went for with my own look to go to the show: instead of going for a soft girly pink I went for a neon pink version with wide sleeves (from <a href="https://www.instagram.com/studionebo/?hl=nl" target="_blank">Studio Nebo</a>), with my fave <a href="http://www.thevolon.com" target="_blank">The Volon</a> bag and white <a href="http://yuulyieshop.com" target="_blank">Yuul Yie</a> heels.
