5 favourites – May

Tomorrow, it’ll officially be summer, but weather-wise the summer started four weeks ago. I don’t think we’ve ever had weather this beautiful for four weeks in a row in Denmark; at least not in my lifetime. And it appears to continue for a while. Anyways, enough about the weather for now. Let’s talk about my 5 favourites from the month of May.

Hvidt sløjfespænde

White bow: When the weather is hot, I wan’t my hair out of my face, and this bow (which used to be my mum’s) has been one of my go-to hair accessories.

Hvide smalle cat-eye solbriller

White cat-eye sunglasses: I featured these sunglasses in my most recent haul, and they’ve pretty much been the only sunglasses I’ve worn since a bought them. I love the cat-eye shape and the white frame, and they look great with any outfit.

Jeffree Star Velour lip scrub (Mojito): When you wear lipstick everyday like I do, exfoliating your lips is essential. This Mojito-flavoured lip scrub from one of my favourite make-up brands does the job, and it smells and taste incredible.

Maybelline nude neglelak

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days gel nail colour (shade: Second Skin): My nails have been in a really bad condition lately, so I’ve had to cut them very short. When I have short, broken nails, I don’t like to wear bright nail colours, and instead I opt for a nude, and this is the perfect nude nail colour for my skin tone.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (film): I’m featuring another super hero film this month, but man, this is a great one. I really like the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but Vol. 2 is even better! I can’t get over how cute Baby Groot is.

More brown please

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I don’t know why I haven’t worn this brown lipstick more, because I think it’s beautiful, and it looks great with matching brown eye make-up.

Dress over jeans

Here’s what I wore Tuesday May 1. I’ve been wanting to try the ‘dress over trousers/jeans’ look for a while, and I really like how this loose-fitting dress looks over blue, skinny jeans. I might try other ‘dress over trousers/jeans’ looks in the future.

(Jeans – Monki, dress – VRS, roll neck top – H&M, shoes – Shoe Biz Copenhagen)

Huge H&M haul – accessories

This is the second part of my huge H&M haul; the accessories.

Hvide smalle cat-eye solbrillerSorte ovale solbriller

I bought two pairs of sunglasses. The white cat-eye ones are very trendy right now, and I see why. I love the retro look to them, and they’re such a statement. The rounded black ones also have a retro feel to them, and I love the shape.

Pink sock boots m. kitten heel - H&M

I’ve always wanted a pair of hot pink shoes, and these sock boots give me total ’80s vibes. I wanted to wear them with this outfit, but it was raining that night, and I don’t think these boots are great in rainy weather.

Fishnet strømper m. hjerter

I’m still loving fishnet socks, and how cute are these ones with little love hearts on them.

Pink hue

Finally, I got this hot pink hat (which would look great paired with the hot pink sock boots), and even though it’s way to hot to wear a hat like this one right now, I’m looking forward to wear it next winter.

Glittery eyelids and a bright lip

Purple pop

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love this make-up! On a daily basis I tend to wear very neutral eye make-up, but adding a bit of colour to the lower lash line is super quick and easy, and it looks great.
