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.
We are approaching the last official month of autumn, and the Danish weather has definitely been autumnal lately. Even wintery as it snowed last weekend. We sure are getting closer to December and Christmas, and Christmassy things have started to show up at most stores. You can probably imagine how excited I am! I have already started to collect some bits for my upcoming Christmas clothing haul. But we still have one month to go, and before November begins, let’s talk about some October favourites.
Checked boots: I’m so happy that I bought these checked boots from Monki. They are so comfortable, and they’re are in the perfect autumn colours. I’ve already worn them quite a bit, but I know that I’ll get a lot more use out of them.
L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara: When I did my first impressions post on this mascara, I mentioned how this is the best mascara I’ve tried other than my favourite one, Maybelline The Falsies. I’ve worn this mascara all month, and I still really enjoy using it.
Laura Geller baked highlighter in French Vanilla (the shade on the left): I’ve heard lots of Youtubers talk about this highlighter. I usually go for a more intense highlighter, but French Vanilla is such a gorgeous more natural highlighter that still gives your skin the most beautiful glow.
Elf (film): I’ve watched so many films this past month, and a lot of them I hadn’t watched before. I loved most of the films I watched, but I couldn’t feature all them in this post, so I narrowed them down to my two favourites. The first one is a classic Christmas film; Elf. Considered how much I love Christmas, it’s strange that I hadn’t watched this one until earlier this month. I guess I hadn’t watched it because I don’t particularly like Will Ferrell, but there’s a reason why Elf is a classic. I loved it, and I’ll definitely rewatch it.
Die Hard (film): My other favourite film I’ve watched this past month is another (Christmas) classic. And again, I see why this is a classic. It’s simply a great action film. I also watched the second one, and I’m really looking forward to watch the rest of this film series.
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.
Here’s what I wore Thursday September 13. I took inspiration from the iconic Farrah Fawcett skateboard pictures from the 1976 Nike Cortez campaign. I dressed up the looked a bit, but kept the flared jeans, the colour red, and of course the Nike Cortez.
(Blazer – second hand, jeans + baker boy hat – H&M, T-shirt – Stradivarius, belt – Asos, sneakers – Nike)
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.
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.
I’ve never purchased anything from Zara’s website before, but I found some awesome shoes on sale that I just couldn’t resist.
How incredible are these boots! These are the boots that made me place this order. I’m obsessed with the print and the colours, and I can’t wait to style these.
I also bought another pair of fun boots. These boots has serious ’80s vibes, and I love it!
The last pair of shoes I bought are these platform brogues. I love the aubergine colour of them, and how amazing are the pink ombré soles!
I also bought a couple of stripy T-shirts, because a stripy T-shirt is my go-to kind of top. Both of these T-shirts reminded me of the ’70s, and I think both would look great with flared jeans.
