Here’s what I wore Monday January 13. The day I bought the incredible pink corduroy skirt at the & Other Stories store I was wearing the green jumper, and I loved the combo, so I decided to wear the outfit for an entire day (instead of just for a brief moment in a fitting room). I added my tiger print knee high boots to make the outfit even more fun.

It’s hard to resist all the January sales, and I really tried not to buy too much. I’m not sure if I succeeded. This is the H&M haul.
I love the fitted roll neck tops from H&M, so I usually buy most of the colours and patterns they create. The polka dot one and the houndstooth one were not on sale, but the green snake print one and the plain nude one were.
When I first received this oversized orange jumper, I was sure I liked the shape (the colour I love), but after trying it on with a few different bottoms, I started to see the potential.
Houndstooth (and polka dots) are some of the pattern trends for 2020, so I decided to get this belted midi skirt. I think it would be fun to style it with the houndstooth roll neck top and maybe some colourful shoes.
I know I already have a pair of Mickey Mouse printed jeans, but these are not the same style + I can’t resist a Mickey print.
Lastly, I added these checked/striped (?) grey tights to my growing tights collection. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I’m really into colourful and patterned tights at the moment.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I thought the yellow orange lipstick would be perfect with this outfit, and I have to say that I really like this lip colour even though it’s a bit of an unusual shade of orange when it comes to lip colours.

Here’s what I wore Friday January 10. I bought the Garfield-printed oversized T-shirt dress last summer, but I just couldn’t figure out how to style it until I came up with this outfit. I really like how this look turned out; it’s so fun and youthful.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday January 7. This is the first outfit I’ve taking pictures of in 2020, and I absolutely love it. I love the colour combination and the print mixing.

MAC recently launched this year’s Lunar New Year collection called Lunar Illusions, and I purchased to products from the collection. There are no limited edition shades in this collection, but the packaging was too stunning to pass on.
I purchased on of the lipsticks and look at the beautiful packaging. I chose the shade Marrakesh which is an orange brown with a matte finish and I don’t think I have any other shades like this in my collection.
The stand out product in this collection is without a doubt the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the shade Double Gleam. This is the most detailed MAC powder I’ve ever seen, and this shade has been on my wishlish for years. It’s almost a shame to ruin this stunning dragon design.
Lastly, I just wanted to include this glitter in the shade Grey Hologram which was a free gift. I don’t own any other loose glitters, but I’m excited to try this.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. You have probably noticed how much I love a blue eye look, and this one is no exception.
