5 favourites – February

It feels like February just flew by, but I don’t mind, because tomorrow the first month of spring begins. The past few days have been very nice weather-wise, and I really hope that sunny, warmer weather will continue. I had a lot of favourites in February, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.

Brune fløjlsbukser m. vide - H&M

Brown corduroy trousers: These trousers have been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them last autumn, and for some reason I hadn’t featured them in a favourites post before, so I thought it was about time. They are the most versatile non-denim pair of trousers I own.

Hvide Cortez m. rød og blå detaljer - Nike

Nike Classic Cortez sneakers: These shoes have also been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them. They’re just so classic, and they add a ’70s touch to any outfit.

Cherry hair clips: I’m loving the hair clip trend (I love hair accessories in general), and I’ve been loving wearing these cherry ones. I love how they add a little extra something to any outfit.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Rose in the Air: Wet n Wild is such a great affordable make-up brand, and their eyeshadow palettes are so good! This one has pretty much been my go-to palette this past month. They colours are stunning and they’re really pigmented and easy to blend.

A Star is Born (film): I FINALLY watched this incredible film in the very beginning of the month. It was definitely as great as I hoped it would be; the music is great and both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga played their roles so well! If you still haven’t watched this, go do it right away.

Bright teal waterline

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love how colourful this make-up look is. I’m especially loving the bright teal in the waterline; I used the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Breakfast At Tiffany’s as eyeliner. The Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks are eye safe, and they make the most gorgeous, pigmented eyeliners.

Sudden obvious pairing

Here’s what I wore Monday February 18. Initially, I wasn’t sure how to style this striped jumper, but suddenly it seemed obvious to style it with my brown corduroy trousers. These trousers just go with everything!

(Trousers + jumper – H&M, sneakers – Nike)

Huge second hand haul: accessories

Here’s the second part of my second hand haul; the accessories.

Rød hat - second handMørkegrå beret - second hand

I’ve bought two hats. I think the red wide brim hat is so pretty, and even though I don’t wear wide brim hats that often, I couldn’t leave this one behind. I also bought another beret. This one is in a dark grey colour.

Sort, hvid og brun Roma print tørklæde - second handOrange, brun, hvid, rød og grønt tørklæde m. tigerprint og blomster - second hand

I’ve added a few more scarfs to my collection as well. The first one has buildings or sites from Rome on it, and the second one is in a tiger print with flowers on top. They are both really pretty, and I’m excited to wear these.

Rødt smalt bælte - second handLyserødt bælte m. sølv og guld spænde - second hand

Lastly, I’ve bought two belts. The red one is made of real leather, and it had never been worn. The pink one is just really pretty; I love the mix of gold and silver on the buckle.

Simple, neutral

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The outfit had a lot going on, so I decided to go with a simple, neutral make-up look.

Oversized goodness

Here’s what I wore Wednesday February 13. I wore my new oversized second hand blazer, and I love how it looks paired with the stripy roll neck top and the pink corduroys.

(Trousers – H&M, blazer + bag + belt – second hand, roll neck top + boots – Monki)

Huge second hand haul: clothes

I’ve been doing a lot of second hand shopping lately, and I thought I would share my finds with you. I’m going to do a two part haul; this one is all about the clothes, and then I’m going to do a separate post on the accessories.

Brun, navy og grøn ternet oversized blazer - second hand

I’ve been looking for an oversized blazer, and this one is perfect! I love the colours and pattern, and the quality is great.

Sort velour jakke med blomstermønster i rød, lilla, grøn og guldglimmer - second hand

This jacket is a mix of things I love; velvet, beautiful colours, and shoulder pads.

Hvid og sort zebraprint fleece jakke - second hand

This is one of those very tacky items that I’m not quite sure if I love or not, but I buy them anyways, because I love a styling challenge, and I often end up really liking those items.

Rød argyle sweater m. navy og gråt mønster - second hand

This red argyle jumper is so nice. It looks like it’s never been worn, and I love the colours.

Khakigrøn sweater m. beige mønster - second hand

I found this khaki green jumper the same day as I found the red argyle one, and I just loved the pattern.

Sort og beige sweater m. guld detaljer - second hand

And I’ve found more great jumpers recently. How nice is this one! Once again I love the pattern, and I also love the button detail. And the quality seems really nice too.

Navy og cremefarvet sweater m. turkis detaljer - second hand

This jumper is from the same brand as the previous one, and how incredible is the colour combination on this one! I’m really excited about all these jumpers.

Beige og cremefarvet rullekravetrøje - second hand

I also found this beige roll neck number, which looks like something a guy would wear in the early to mid 2000s, and I really don’t mind that.

Hvid kortærmet skjorte m. lyserødt, blåt og grønt mønster - second hand

I’ve also bought two button up blouses/shirts which are probably more appropriate for warmer weather, but I just couldn’t leave them behind, so I’ll save them in my closet and wear them in a few months. I love the colours and pattern of this one, and it has shoulder pads as well, which is always a plus in my book.

Navy kortærmet skjorte m. hvide og røde blomster - second hand

The other button up blouse I’ve purchased recently is the navy one with the cutest daisy print.

Lyseblå højtaljet denim nederdal - second hand

I more often find tops than I find bottoms at second hand stores, but this time around I did find a skirt and a pair of trousers/jeans. I’m always looking for the perfect denim skirt, and this one comes very close. It’s high waisted, it’s pretty much the perfect length, and the light wash gives it a strong ’80s vibe which I’m all about.

Beige slangeprint bukser - second hand

The pair of trousers (or I guess they’re jeans) that I’ve purchased and the last item in this part of the haul are these snake print ones. I’m really into animal print at the moment and these fit me perfectly, so I had to buy them. I guess they’re slightly tacky, but they remind me of Coyote Ugly and I love that film, so I might take some inspiration from there when styling these trousers.
