Old kimono

Here’s what I wore Wednesday July 27. I hadn’t worn this kimono in years, but thought it would be a nice layer on less hot days.

Collective haul (May)

It’s time for my collective haul from May. This haul consists of clothes, shoes, and make-up. Let’s begin with the clothes.

I purchased four dresses from Monki, and I’ve already posted outfits with all four. Monki has been my go-to non-maternity brand throughout my pregnancy, because they make a lot of loose and/or oversized clothes especially dresses. Also, Monki is one of my favourite brands in general; they have the best prints and colour combos.

The only other piece of clothing in this haul is this pair of pleated trousers, which is also from Monki, and I’ve also posted an outfit with these already.

I featured these violet Crocs in my last 5 favourites post with a mix of different Jibbitz. I purchased some of the Jibbitz (the bottom two sets) at the same time as the Crocs, and some of them I already had. I also purchased two sets of Disney Jibbitz, which are now decorating my black Crocs sandals that I use indoors.

Let’s move on to make-up. The main reason why I keep buying the I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale palettes is the packaging. However, this Tangled one is actually not bad. I really liked the look I created with this palette.

Next up is a mix of different products. I got the Essence Fix & Last Make-up Gripping Jelly Primer and the MAC Wild Cherry Pro Palette Eye Shadow X 2. I thought the little MAC palette would be nice for travelling. I also picked up two highlighters; the Catrice Glow Lover Oil-Infused highlighter in 010 Glowing Peony and the Pixi + Hello Kitty Glow-y Powder in Sweet Glow.

Here’s a closer look at two highlighters. They are both pinky shades and very pretty.

Essence recently launched a bunch of new gel nail colours, so I picked up a lot of shades; 17 I Lilac You, 23 Tangerine Ahead, 27 Hey Sand Tropez, 34 Love U So Mocha, 41 Violet Voltage, 45 Lavender Vibes Only, 48 Squeeze The Day, and 49 Save Water drink Lime.

Lastly, I picked up a few things from Beauty Bay.

I picked up the new By BEAUTY BAY Bright 2.0 16 Colour Palette. There are also 42 and 9 colour versions, but I liked the 16 colour one the best.

I also purchased another e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty blush. This is in the shade Fiji, and it’s a beautiful red shade.

And then I got my first two products from About-Face. I picked up the Light Lock Highlight Fluid in Fight Or Flight and the About-Face Light Lock Stick in Frenzy. It was love at first application with the liquid highlighter; it’s so stunning! I also like the highlighter stick, however, it’s very glittery, so I don’t think it goes with all make-up looks. But it is pretty nonetheless.

Second Beauty Killer 2 look

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I had so much fun doing this make-up look. I wanted to play with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer 2 palette again, and I love how different this look is from the first look I created with the palette.

Match the stripes

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I had a lot of fun trying to match my eyeshadow to the green stripes in my dress, which are quite a specific shade of mint. I think I did a pretty good job with the matching though.

Solid colour dress

Here’s what I wore Saturday July 2. I wore this look out for lunch with a friend, and I really love how colourful this look turned out, even though the dress is just one solid colour.

H&M MAMA haul

I’m not sure if it’s of any interest, but I still wanted to do a H&M MAMA haul, because most of the clothes I’ve shopped lately has obviously been maternity clothes. I find it hard to find fun maternity clothes, but I do like a lot of these pieces. Let’s begin with dresses, because that’s what I been buying and wearing the most.

As I wrote in my last outfit post, I usually don’t feel comfortable wearing tight, fitted dresses, but I love how they look on pregnant women, so I purchased the white and black striped one that I wore in my last outfit post and a blue one. I’ve loved wearing both of these.

I’m not really into short dresses either, but I have to say that these three have come in handy in this hot weather we’ve been having in Denmark lately.

And then there are the maxi dresses. There seem to be a lot of maxi maternity dresses, but to be honest they do look cute, and they’re comfy too.

Finding maternity tops is quite difficult, but I did get a few. My mum actually got me the pink T-shirt and the mint green halter top. She also got me some of the dresses.

I also picked up a three pack of nursing tops. I’m sure these will be useful once the baby is born.

I decided to not buy to many maternity bottoms. I purchased a pair of cropped mom style jeans, which I’ve worn quite a bit. I’ve also always wanted a pair of overalls for when I got pregnant. I haven’t worn them yet due to the hot weather, but I think I’ll be wearing them a lot towards the very end of my pregnancy. And lastly, I purchased a pair of denim shorts, and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of those.

And then I had to get a bunch of biker shorts to wear underneath all the dresses. As you can see, I purchased three different kinds, and I actually like all of them. It’s nice to have them in different colours and different thicknesses to wear with different dresses.
