Here’s what I wore Monday July 29. I went to one of my cousin’s birthday party, and it was a super hot day, so I decided to wear this cute floral dress which matched my new colourful second hand sandals perfectly.

My family and I went on our annual day-long second hand shopping trip during our summer holiday, and here’s what I bought.
Clothes wise I bought one top and two midi skirts. All three pieces are very autumnal/wintry, so I probably won’t be wearing them for a little while.
This belt came with the black skirt, and I love the rose detail on the buckle.
When it comes to shoes, I really hit the jackpot on this trip. All four pairs were unused, and they were all so affordable. So far I’ve only worn the colourful heels, and they were so cute. I’m really excited about wearing the other three pairs as well.
Over the summer holidays, I went to several flea markets, and here’s a few things that I found.
Big hair clips was all the rage last summer, but I’m still not over them, so I added this fun tortoise shell like one to my rather large collection of hair clips. I’ve already shown you the cuff link ring, but I also found a cactus pendant and the cutest Revlon nail varnish pin.
My mum found this amazing dress from the ’70s. She bought it from an older lady who told her that she had found the fabric and then had someone make a dress out of it for her. It’s so nice when clothes have a story, and I love that this dress is one of a kind.
Here’s what I wore Tuesday June 25. My youngest sister graduated from upper secondary school/high school that day, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear a pretty dress. The last time I wore this dress was at my own graduation party last year (when I got my master’s degree).

July has come to an end which means that my summer holiday is now over. I spent the last three weeks relaxing with my family, which is why I haven’t blogged much this past month, but now I’m back home, I start working again tomorrow, and I’ll also be blogging regularly again. I love summer holidays, but I’m also the type of person who’s excited to get back to work. But before that happens, here’s my July favourites.
Cufflink ring: I went to several flea markets and second hand stores this summer and hauls will be coming up. One of my favourite flea market finds is this silver ring made of a cufflink. The woman who sold it to me made it herself, and there’s only two of them in world, since cufflinks come in sets of two:)
Homemade jewellery: My sisters and I went crazy with jewellery making this summer, and these are the bracelets and ankle bracelets I made. I’ve worn different combinations of these almost everyday these past three weeks, and I’ll probably continue to do so for the rest of the summer.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette: I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about an eyeshadow palette than I was for this one. 2019 has been the year of colourful eyeshadows for me, and this palette is absolutely stunning. It was one of the palettes I brought with me on summer holiday, and even though I’ve used it a lot, I still haven’t tried out half of the shades. I can’t wait to play even more with this palette.
Ofra Cosmetics x Nikkietutorials Glazed Donut highlighter: This highlighter is just gorgeous! The colour is perfect and it looks stunning on the skin. Definitely my most used highlighter in July.
Vintage Shoes – Caroline Cox: I started reading this book years ago, and now I finally had time to finish it. I’ve been obsessed with shoes since my early teenage years, and this book tells you all you need to know about shoes from the 20. century. It was such an inspiring read.
Here’s what I wore Monday June 17. I’m still not over animal print, and this snake print slip skirt has been a summer favourite of mine.

Here’s what I wore Thursday June 6. I wore this skirt quite a bit last summer, and I was excited about wearing it again. I felt a bit like a casual ’50s housewife in this outfit.
