Today I want to share my latest second hand finds with you.
I’m always on the hunt for a new ‘party’ top, and I couldn’t leave this glitter top behind. I love the pattern in the glitter, and I think it’ll look great on top of a black long-sleeve roll neck top for the colder season.
I always look for blazers when I’m second hand shopping, because all of my favourite blazers are second hand. My latest blazer find is this blue one, and I can’t wait to style it.
Another thing I’m always looking for at second hand stores are roll neck tops. This one has stripes which is just a big plus.
How cute is this home-knitted jumper. I love the colours and the fact that it’s stripy.
And now for skirts. I bought three skirts, the first one being this simple black midi skirt. I thought it would be nice to have a black skirt to wear for any occasion.
This skirt has a tiny, little Mickey Mouse on the pocket, and you probably know how I feel about Mickey Mouse or anything Disney related. I think this skirt would look really cute with a lot of my Christmas jumpers.
The third and last skirt is this brown floral maxi skirt. It’s very different from anything I own, but I thought it would be fun to style.
Lastly, I found this grey leopard print scarf, which I’ve worn several times already. Animal print has obviously been a huge trend for a while now, so I thought a scarf was a good piece for trying out the trend.
Here’s what I wore Tuesday November 6. I’m obsessed with this outfit! It might ‘just’ be a blazer, a T-shirt, and jeans, but every piece added something that made the outfit more fun and interesting, and I just felt good in it.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I might have to start wearing more brown and purple make-up looks, because I think the two colours look great together. I did an ombré lip to match the colour of my T-shirt, and I think I came close to a perfect match.

Since 2014 I’ve been purchasing a couple of products from the MAC holiday collections, and this year is no exception. The collection this year is called Shiny Pretty Things, and it has shiny silver packaging. I bought two products; a face palette and a lipstick.
The Nutcracker Sweet peach face compact from the 2016 holiday collection is one of my favourite MAC products of all time. Therefore, I decided to get one of the face compacts from this year’s collection. I got the one in Fair (it also comes in Medium/Deep), and it consists of an Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the shade String Lights, an Extra Dimension blush in the shade Sweater Weather, and an Extra Dimension bronzer in the shade Five-Alarm Kiss. The Nutcracker Sweet compact didn’t include a bronzer, so I’m really happy that MAC included one in this year’s face compacts. I love the Extra Dimension formulas, and I’m really enjoying this product so far. I think it’ll be great for traveling as well.
I always get one of the lipsticks, and from this collection I chose the shade Straight Fire. It’s in a matte metallic finish, which I hadn’t tried from MAC before, but I absolutely love this lipstick. I love the finish and I love the colour. It’s a beautiful deep metallic red; perfect for the holiday season (and autumn and winter in general).
Here’s what I wore Thursday November 1. Even though Disney cartoons will always be my favourites, I can make room for a little Looney Tunes as well.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday October 31. Since it was halloween, I decided to wear my new Ghostbusters T-shirt. It’s pretty chilly outside these days, so I decided to layer the T-shirt on top of a long-sleeve roll neck top. It’s a great way of wearing graphic T-shirts during autumn/winter without covering them up.
