I’ve been doing some shopping lately, both online and in physical stores, and since I’ve collected a good amount of things, I thought I would do a two-part haul; one for the shoes and accessories and one for the clothes. Let’s start with shoes and accessories.
I’ve been wanting a pair of snake print boots for so many years, and now that snake print is a big trend again, there are so many options when it comes to snake print boots. I wanted a pair perfect for everyday use, and these ones from New Look are just that. I love the beige and black colours, and they are so comfortable to wear. They also come in an all black version that I’m considering getting as well.
A couple of weeks ago, when my sister was visiting, we went shopping and found that one of the Monki stores in my town where about to move location, so the whole store was 50 % off. Some of the items were even further recuced in price, among others these blue glitter sock boots that I’ve been wanting since the hit the stores a while back. They’re are in a similar style to these checked boots that I’m obsessed with, and they’re just as comfortable.
The third pair of shoes I’ve bought lately are these beauties from & Other Stories. I felt like I missed a pair of simple, black heels for special occations, and these are so comfortable because of the block heel. And how pretty are those buckles! Oh, and they were on sale too.
It’s getting quite cold outside, so it’s time for hats, gloves, and scarfs. I found this purple beanie in the Monki sale, and I’ve already worn it several times.
Lastly, I’ve purchased some earrings from the UK webshop Lisa Angel. I obviously couldn’t resist the little blue stegosaurus earrings. How cute are they! And I also thought the dainty earcuff was really pretty.
It’s been about a month since Jeffree Star launched his Velour lip liners, so you probably know all about them, but I wanted to do a quick post on them anyways. Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my absolute favourite make-up brands, and the Velour liquid lipsticks are my favourite lipsticks, so I was quite excited about this launch. Jeffree Star made 17 shades corresponding to shades from his Velour liquid lipstick range, and I decided to get 5 of my favourite shades. The shades I’ve purchased are (from the top) Anna Nicole, Redrum, Calabasas, Celebrity Skin, and Leo. The lip liners claim to be creamy, long-lasting, and to have extreme payoff, and all three things are true. They are creamy, but not too soft, and they are long-lasting and really pigmented. I’m excited to see if Jeffree Star releases more shades in the future.
About a month ago, my sisters and two of my cousins were visiting me. Obviously, we went shopping, and these are the items I purchased.
We went to a bunch of second hand stores, but I only found one item, which is this shirt. I love colorful, patterned vintage shirts like this one, so I couldn’t leave it behind. This colour combination is quite unusual, and the buttons are very pretty.
I love super colourful things, and I instantly fell in love with this rainbow striped jumper from Monki. I can’t wait to style it in a bunch of different ways.
I also found this stripy number in the Monki store. I love a roll neck top, and I love the autumnal colours of this one. It will pair perfectly with most of my corduroy trousers.
I’d been eyeing up these corduroy overalls for a while, and I finally decided to purchase them. I love the chocolate brown colour, and I’ve already worn them with the autumnal roll neck top above.
Lastly, I bought this black, velvet headband. I found it at my local supermarket, and I thought it would be perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
I’ve bought some more shoes. I know, I’ve gone a bit shoe-crazy lately, but it’s a new season, and I’m so inspired when it comes to putting together outfits.
I’ve purchased my first ever pair of Vans. When I saw these online, I fell in love instantly. I’m obsessed with corduroy and my favourite colour is purple, so it’s a match made in shoe heaven.
I’ve also bought a new pair of red boots. I had to get rid of my old pair, because I had worn them to death, but red boots has become an essential in my wardrobe, so I got myself a new pair. These are from Even&Odd, and I love the round toe and the shape of the heel.
Another month has flown by, and we’re now another month closer to December:) The weather has become more autumnal, and I really don’t mind it. I love dressing in autumn, because you can start to layer. There’s also a lot of great textures and colours in autumn fashion, so I’m feeling very inspired when it comes to putting together outfits these days. I do also have a couple of fashion related favourites this month though the might not be particularly autumnal.
Chunky sneakers: Sneakers are my go-to kind of shoes, and these chunky ones from Topshop has been my favourite pair this past month. They’re super comfortable, and I love the slightly odd colour combination.
Trollbeads ring of change: I bought this ring with some money I got as a graduation present (when I got my master’s degree), and I’ve been wearing it a ton. I love that you can costumise it to match your outfit by changing the bead.
Half updo with big hair clip: I featured big hair clips in my July favourites, and I still love them and wear them all the time. This past month, I’ve mainly worn them in this half updo fashion. It’s just such an easy and quick way to do your hair, and it looks cute.
Coco (film): I finally got to watch Disney’s Coco, and I absolutely loved it! I loved the story, the music, and the scenery and colours of the film are gorgeous. I don’t know how Disney does it, but they sure make the best animated films.
Record player: I’d been wanting a record player for a while, and I was very lucky to get one for my birthday last month. I’ve been buying old records at second hand stores, and I’ve been listening to them almost every day, since I got the recond player.
It’s been about a month since my last H&M haul, and it’s time for another one.
This T-shirt was actually a birthday present. I love Friends and I love graphic tees, so this is right up my street.
Even though summer is over, I thought this red, floral, off-shoulder top was really pretty. I probably won’t get much use out of it right now, but I’ll just save for next year.
This, on the other hand, will be very appropriate in a few month’s time. If you didn’t now, I’m obsessed with Christmas jumpers, and I thought about getting this one last year, but some reason I didn’t. Until now. I found it on sale on H&M’s webpage, and I can’t wait to wear it in December.
Remember the pink corduroy trousers, I featured in my last H&M haul? Well, I had to have the brown ones too. They are so ’70s, and I can’t wait to style these.
I’ve also bought a pair of black wide-led trousers. They have a old-fashioned look to them, and they’ll be interesting to style.
Lastly, I bought a black beret. I had a black beret years ago, but I lost it and never found it again, so now a have a new one.
I have a collective haul to share with you. These are all things I’ve accumulated over the past month or so. I’ve split up the haul into two parts; this part will be about the shoes and accessories, and the second part will be the clothes.
You might have noticed that I’m very much inspired by ’70s fashion, and when I think of of ’70s sneakers I think of a pair of Nike Classic Cortez. I’ve been wanting a pair of these for quite a while, and not long ago they were on sale on Asos. I wanted the classic colourway made famous by Farrah Fawcett and Forrest Gump, and I can’t wait to style them in a bunch of different ways.
Now that it’s officially autumn, it’s time to wear boots again. It was love at first sight with these checked Monki boots. I wore them for the first time today, and they were really comfortable.
Since I love hats, I’ve been wanting to try out the baker boy hat trend for a long time, and I finally bought not one, but two. I bought a red one and pink one, because they are two of my favourite colours. The pink one is made of corduroy too, which is a bonus. They’re both from H&M.
My obsession with hair clips continues. The pretty pink one was a birthday present from one of my sisters, and the red one with the flowers is from Monki.
