Have you heard of festival season ? On the 4th of July 2015 my first music festival of the year was a fact! Finally... after waiting a whole year for a summer festival .

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a summer festival guide in one of my previous posts ' Festival Goals' feat. Zalando  . As you can all see Couleur Café clearly was on the list. Thanks for asking Couleur Café a hell of a party!!! It was a very hot day too. Luckily I had some short shorts in the closet because I would've melted otherwise. I went to River Island to get me some simple running sneakers . I'm kind of new to the constantly wearing short shorts habit.  The #HeatWave made me do it. But the entire look came through.

Welcome to Monroe Beachclub Knokke.
An amazing destination away from the noisy city people. A Beach club in the style of a 'Côte d’Azur' Beach club ( South of France ) , with the charm of Knokke-Le-Zout . Monroe Beach started in 2012 on the 50th birthday of Marilyn Monroe. I was invited to explore this fancy spot in Knokke, with VIP treatment only for Top Notch Bloggers. I brought my bro Yassin along to have a great time, have some drinks, get to know some new interesting people and beautiful ladies ( I'm doing a lot of that lately ) ... mostly to have a change of scenery. We all need that from time to time.

Ooh Dear Knokke, you are so sweet. The last 2 weeks I made it a habit to go chill in Knokke. The first time was  for a photoshoot,  which I helped style. The 2nd time was to have a blast.  Knokke is very different then the urban city of Antwerp. Knokke has that resort vibe going on and It's the perfect getaway from all the noisy city people. 
First thing that happend: I had my #MoetMoment. Once we arrived in Knokke City we had to pour ourselves a well-deserved glass of that new Moet Ice Champagne from Moet & Chandon. Cheers to the freaking weekend! It was all about that Knokke Life.

WELCOME TO MY CLOAKROOM

My first video went online this Monday - yeeuy -  and now It's time to show you them looks in collaboration with THE CLOAKROOM, A Dutch online personal shopping service I told you about. This is 1 out of 3.

Blue , as in the color blue, has a big meaning to me. My high school years were spent in a catholic school which means we wore blue ALL DAY *kanye west voice* . I learned to style my looks in blue 4 consecutive years. Difficult ? Yes,  of course. Every season I was looking for something blue  and exciting to wear to school however the school secretary would prohibit me from looking fly. Look at me today though Ms. Van Look ... I can pull off a casual fall look in blue for days - or years. With the help of my personal online shopper at The Cloakroom of course. It's like they knew I used to be in a catholic school. As I  said before in my first post about Welcome To My Cloakroom : 'The Cloakroom 's concept is to keep a man's wardrobe updated without having to move one step" . Héhé I was at home when the items were being picked out. Don' get it twisted I'm not a lazy guy, but you can call it " the good life " :-) .

WELCOME TO MY CLOAKROOM | (VIDEO ) JON THE GOLD X THE CLOAKROOM


•••

JON THE GOLD BLOG presents :  


Welcome To My Cloakroom.

I joined forces with  The Cloakroom, an online personal shopping service from the Netherlands.  Presenting you 3 looks that my personal shopper ( from The Cloakroom ) and I styled.  : 


1)  Blue For Days
2)  Urban Dope Boy
3)  Dapper In Red


It doesn't happen a lot but Yess, I  got styled. I freely gave my personal stylist Valerie 'carte blanche' on the styling and it worked out very well. It was up to me to give it my personal touch. So I added some details here and there. And made the outfit appear so urban, so Jon, while flexin' around on an abandoned property. The dapper look ( with Filippa K v-neck jumper ) was the perfect casual and classy look. That red/black cashmere scarf ( SELECTED HOMME )  I'm wearing adds a flair to the casual. It can be appealing on the  young gents or even the older generation of men in their 30's & 40's ,  can find their way to the CLOAKROOM too.

Tell me more about The Cloakroom...

The Cloakroom 's concept is to keep a man's wardrobe updated without having to move one step. And It's all  happening online. The Cloakroom has a team of personal online shoppers that keeps a close contact with their costumer. Without losing your personal style and voice, you are kept stylish with the help of many personal shoppers at your service.It's important to know and I experienced it: Your opinion and feedback really counts at The Cloakroom. That personal approach was missing in the online shopping market especially for men - to be frankly honest. They have multiple brands available in their online shop under which Filippa K, SAMOE & SAMSOE, Lee, HUGO BOSS, Scotch & Soda, Nudie Jeans, Converse,...

Stay tuned because starting from next week I'll be publishing  all the 3  looks from my collaboration with The Cloakroom. Take a look at the CLOAKROOM website and get all "cloaked" up by a personal shopper.

A couple of weeks ago one of my pr peers sent me an email inviting me to a concert in my hometown Antwerp. A concert..woow..that was a long time ago. I remember thinking "when was my last concert again?" - I think it was the 'Watch The Throne'- tour by Kanye West and Jay-Z , that concert was massive!!!!!

OFF-BLOG DUTIES | SPEAKING AT NATIONAL COMMUNICATION DAY

OFF BLOG DUTIES | My first workshop about fashion blogging in Amsterdam , nationale dag van de communicatie 29 april

Today I'm doing something different because different is good. If you read my previous posts you'll feel that I share more and more snippets of my personal life. I'd like to continue going that way...to begin with this first post about one my off blog duties. I was blessed enough to speak at the national communication day in Amsterdam city ( in dutch Nationale Dag van de Communicatie), with my friend/sister/blogster Trudy.The my first time talking in public about the 'tips & tricks of starting a blog'. A very first time for the both of us .  My Instagram revealed a lot already, I had to travel back and forth to Rotterdam several times to meet friend & fellow blogster Trudy from www.theycallmetrue.com . We worked on the presentation for hours and hours at the DOUWE EGBERTS Cafe near the Rotterdam central station. After hours , days of work and preparation , WORKSHOP DAY arrived, April 29. We both hopped on the train to Amsterdam with so much nerves and rehearsed one more time. A moment of honesty guys:  WE WERE EXTREMELY NERVOUS. This time it was different from a classic school presentation, this one was for real!
