Here’s what I wore Wednesday January 9. I’ve been trying to find the perfect outfit to wear with these 2000s boots, and this was it. I just love the green and fuchsia/cranberry colour combo.
(Sweatshirt + roll neck top – H&M, skirt + boots – second hand)
I’ve purchased a few pieces in different sales recently, and I thought I would share them with you.
I’ve talked about the clothing brand VRS at several occations. It’s a brand carried by a Danish chain of supermarkets. Somestimes you can find some really nice pieces. I had actually tried on the green dress before and didn’t buy it initially, but when all clothing at my local supermarket was on sale last week, I decided to buy it. I think it’ll be the perfect dress to wear on Christmas Eve (in Denmark we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve). I also found the red dress and thought it would be a great holiday party dress. Lastly, I bought a stripy roll neck top, because you can never have too many roll neck tops or stripy tops for that matter.
I’ve also purchased a few pieces from Asos. The rainbow jacket is from Daisy Street, and the rainbow scarf is from Brave Soul (can you tell that I like all things rainbow). And obviously I couldn’t resist the adorable T-Rex socks.
Lastly, I ordered two pairs of shoes from Zalando. I’ve been craving both of these pairs for a while, and when both pairs were on sale, I had to get them. I’ve been wanting a pair of white boots for a long time, and I just loved these ones from Topshop. I love the elongated shape and the wooden heel. I absolutely love my classic white Nike Cortez, and I thought these lilac ones were really nice. There was only one pair left at the time I bought these, and they were in my size. It was meant to be.
It’s the last day of November which means that my favourite month starts tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for December and Christmas for so long now, and I can’t wait! You’ll be seeing a lot of christmassy outfits and hauls on my blog in December, but before we get into that let’s talk about some of my favourite things from the month of November.
Brown faux fur coat: It’s gotten a lot colder outside, so I’ve been wearing my winter coats lately. My most worn coat this past month is this faux fur coat that my sister found years ago at a second hand store. It’s just so nice and snuggly.
Mickey Mouse jeans: These jeans are just awesome. The fit is great, and I love the Mickey Mouse print. I’m wearing them here and here.
Blue glitter boots: This style of boot from Monki is so good! Last month I featured the checked version of these in my 5 favourites, and I love these blue glitter ones just as much.
Purple beanie: I find it difficult to find the perfect beanie, but I think I might have found it in this purple Monki one. It fits well, and the colour is stunning.
e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer: I’ve never been a huge fan of loose powders (maybe I just don’t know how to use them properly), but I’ve really enjoyed using this undereye setting powder from e.l.f. It doesn’t feel cakey or dry on the skin, and it keeps my concealer crease-free all day. And it’s affordable too.
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 1976. I dressed up the looked a bit, but kept the flared jeans, the colour red, and of course the Nike Cortez.
