Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 19. My green jeans were a perfect match for my new second hand jumper. I love that this outfit is so fun and colourful yet really casual and comfortable.

It feels like February just flew by, but I don’t mind, because tomorrow the first month of spring begins. The past few days have been very nice weather-wise, and I really hope that sunny, warmer weather will continue. I had a lot of favourites in February, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.
Brown corduroy trousers: These trousers have been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them last autumn, and for some reason I hadn’t featured them in a favourites post before, so I thought it was about time. They are the most versatile non-denim pair of trousers I own.
Nike Classic Cortez sneakers: These shoes have also been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them. They’re just so classic, and they add a ’70s touch to any outfit.
Cherry hair clips: I’m loving the hair clip trend (I love hair accessories in general), and I’ve been loving wearing these cherry ones. I love how they add a little extra something to any outfit.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Rose in the Air: Wet n Wild is such a great affordable make-up brand, and their eyeshadow palettes are so good! This one has pretty much been my go-to palette this past month. They colours are stunning and they’re really pigmented and easy to blend.
A Star is Born (film): I FINALLY watched this incredible film in the very beginning of the month. It was definitely as great as I hoped it would be; the music is great and both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga played their roles so well! If you still haven’t watched this, go do it right away.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love how colourful this make-up look is. I’m especially loving the bright teal in the waterline; I used the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Breakfast At Tiffany’s as eyeliner. The Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks are eye safe, and they make the most gorgeous, pigmented eyeliners.

Here’s what I wore Monday February 18. Initially, I wasn’t sure how to style this striped jumper, but suddenly it seemed obvious to style it with my brown corduroy trousers. These trousers just go with everything!

Here’s the second part of my second hand haul; the accessories.
I’ve bought two hats. I think the red wide brim hat is so pretty, and even though I don’t wear wide brim hats that often, I couldn’t leave this one behind. I also bought another beret. This one is in a dark grey colour.
I’ve added a few more scarfs to my collection as well. The first one has buildings or sites from Rome on it, and the second one is in a tiger print with flowers on top. They are both really pretty, and I’m excited to wear these.
Lastly, I’ve bought two belts. The red one is made of real leather, and it had never been worn. The pink one is just really pretty; I love the mix of gold and silver on the buckle.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The outfit had a lot going on, so I decided to go with a simple, neutral make-up look.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday February 13. I wore my new oversized second hand blazer, and I love how it looks paired with the stripy roll neck top and the pink corduroys.
