Pink/gold

Disney T-shirt dress

Here’s what I wore Friday January 22. I’ve been wanting to wear this Disney T-shirt dress again for so long, but I wasn’t sure how to wear it this time. But then I came up with this idea of wearing it with an all black velvet base and a belt at the waist, and I think it turned out to be such a fun outfit.

5 favourites – March

Another month in lock down has gone by. However, the country has started to slowly open up again, and I went physically to work twice last week, which was great. Working from home isn’t all that fun, but right now I’m in the middle of my easter holiday which I’ve been looking forward to the whole month. Anyways, I had many favourites in March, and it was difficult to narrow them down to five, but here are my picks.

Black chunky boots: The only times I’ve been leaving my apartment these past four months have been to go for a walk, to pick up a parcel, or to go grocery shopping, and for all those occasions my shoes of choice has been these black chunky boots from PULL&BEAR. I really miss wearing all of my shoes, but I have enjoyed wearing these boots a lot.

Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana: I haven’t gotten around to hauling this product yet, but I wanted to feature it anyways, because I’ve been loving this powder to set my under eyes. My favourite undereye setting powder from e.l.f. has been discontinued I think (at least I can’t find it anywhere), so I’ve been on the hunt for alternatives, and this is a great alternative + it’s super affordable too.

BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin eyeshadow palette: I know, another product I haven’t hauled yet, but this palette is amazing, so I had to feature it. I’ll show you the inside another time, but the shades are a mix of blues and neutrals, and it is stunning. BH Cosmetics has definitely been on my radar since they released the Naughty palette for holiday 2020.

EOS Toasted Marshmellow lip balm: I love the EOS lip balms, and I’ve had the Toasted Marshmellow one lying around for ages, so when I used up my Vanilla Bean one (which might still be my favourite scent), I started using the Toasted Marshmellow one, and it smells so good. Do I need to say that I love the colour of the packaging as well?

Ear Bisquits (podcast): I had never been listening to podcasts before this month, and I’m really enjoying it. My favourite so far is Ear Bisquits by Rhett and Link, and I knew that I would enjoy this one, because Good Mythical Morning is my favourite Youtube channel. I’m really excited to be listening to more podcasts in the future.

Big collective Zalando haul

I have a rather large collective Zalando haul to share with you. There’s a bit of everything; clothes, shoes, and one bag. Let’s start with the clothes.

I’ve had my eye on this pink and beige checked oversized blazer from Monki for a long time, and when I found it on sale, I decided to finally get it. I love the colours and I love the oversized fit. It’s a perfect spring blazer.

I really like pastels at the moment actually, and this little sweater vest from Stradivarius was just too cute not to buy.

Here’s another piece from Stradivarius with some slightly brighter pastel colours. And of course it has a Disney print. On the back of the T-shirt there’s a picture of Mickey and Minnie from the back, and it says Minnie as well.

I know, I know. Christmas is long over, but I like to buy Christmas jumpers on sale, and I didn’t have one with a gingerbread house on it. It’s from Vero Moda.

Other than pastels, I’m also obsessed with sequins and anything sparkly to be honest. This sequins set (purchased separately) is from Monki, and it’s beautiful. I can’t wait for the day I get to wear this.

I just received these pastel coloured cropped jeans from Bershka, and they might be the perfect spring jeans.

I talked about my love for coloured tights before, and I was very happy to find a teal pair and brown pair from the brand Lindex. I love how my collection of colourful tights is growing.

And now on to shoes. I haven’t bought a new pair of sneakers in quite a while, but I fell in love with these pastel coloured (last pastel item in this haul, I promise) sneakers from Buffalo. I don’t have any other shoes from Buffalo, so I wasn’t sure about the sizing, but my regular size in sneakers were too big, so I went down one size, and they fit. I wore them the other day, and they were really comfortable.

BEBO is a really affordable shoe brand that among other things makes great dupes of the Amina Muaddi style heels that I’m obsedded with (and you’ll see another pair of those in a few seconds). However, the brand also makes other fun shoes like these clear pumps with the most beautiful heels that are made out of what looks to be big beads. I’m so ready to go to a bunch of parties!

And speaking of the Amina Muaddi style heel these red beauties are also from BEBO, and I think that they are stunning!

Here’s another item that I’d been wanting for a long time. When I found these boots 40% off, I’m sure it was a sign for me to get them. They’re from Topshop, and they’re in this stunning dark burgundy colour. I just love a knee high boot!

The last two pieces are both from Monki, and as you can see, they’re both in denim. I feel like denim accessories have been around before, and I’ve always been intrigued by them, so I thought it was time to try some out. I love Monki shoes. Especially their boots which pretty much all has the same type of block heel and the same fit, and they fit my feet so well. I wore these denim lace up boots last week (they have a zipper on the side), and I loved wearing them. And why not get the matching denim hand bag. It’s a very nice little hand bag that’ll go with so many outfits.

Nude olive

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The colour combo of my jumper is so fun, so I definitely wanted to play with those colours when I did my make-up that day. The Jeffree Star Velvet Trap lipstick in Unphazed was a perfect match to the olive green in my jumper, and even though it’s a nude olive lipstick, which doesn’t sound very wearable, I actually think it is.

Poreless Putty Primer, foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – e.l.f.

Difficult to style

Here’s what I wore Thursday January 21. I really like this Kangol x H&M jumper, but it’s a bit difficult to style, because you can’t really tuck it, so you have to wear it over whatever bottoms you’re wearing. It makes the outfits more casual and street style inspired I guess, but I actually don’t mind that.

(Jumper + trousers + socks – H&M, shoes – Asos)

Current go-to neutral look

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The last make-up look I posted featured my old go-to neutral eye look. This whole look could very well be my current go-to neutral make-up look. I have definitely been wearing several of these warm, camel coloured neutrals look over the past six months or so.

(Base: primers – Wet n Wild Photofocus face primer matte + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – e.l.f.

Midweek neutrals

Here’s what I wore Wednesday January 20. A little midweek neutral outfit. I like a neutral colour scheme for an outfit as long as there’s some pattern mix involved.
