Outfit | Coffee Break

I was wearing: blouse h&m trend/ boyfriend jeans levi's/ shoes zara

I'm having one of those days today - just a list of errands to run. But I actually love having a list of things to do in the back of my mind, mentally ticking off stuff makes me happy! You know, the trouble with studying is, you're never really done. There's always another book to read, another exercise to go over or another line to learn by heart. So now I'm off to get groceries and later I'll make a huge cake for my dad's birthday. You guys have a nice day!

DIY | Studded Part II

Here's the second part of my studding DIY. You've already seen the bag here, but I wanted to show it to you again in more detail. I've had the plain black faux leather bag for a really long time, I've used it a lot in high school. I think now that it received this nice update, I'll use it a lot again. How do you like it?

Outfit | Spiked and Studded

I was wearing: blazer h&m/ tee cheap monday/ pants h&m/ bag DIY/ boots akira/ bracelets fossil & asos

I love how busy I look in the first two photos! Add an outfit that's a little more business appropriate and this is how I might picture myself in a couple years. In order for that to happen, I'm gonna need to study first, so I'll see you soon ;) Have a great day!

Diary | #23

Went out for some old-fashioned coffee and cake with the boy. Finally got my hands on the shea body mist by The Body Shop. I love that scent! Ate the first macaron of my life. Had pancakes with strawberries for lunch, yummy! I spent most of the last week sick in bed, accompanied by this cute hot-water bottle. The arrival of this little goodie from Asos really cheered me up!

My outfits while being sick mainly consisted of leggings, a t-shirt and an oversized shirt (this one's from Urban Outfitters) - comfy clothes! Watching Gossip Girl in bed all day seemed like a good idea. Another good idea for days spent in bed: I finally joined Tumblr, check out my blog here. Did some more DIYing, you'll see the result soon! I managed to vary my 'sick uniform' with some fancy leggings (these are from Bik Bok). What I wore yesterday (soon on the blog).

Inspiration | Baseball Jackets

Photos: stockholm streetstyle/ cottds/ unknown/ sincerely jules/ asos

I think it's obvious that I'm obsessed with baseball jackets! I've been told several times that the sporty look works well for me (although I am certainly not the sporty type) and I think a fancy baseball jacket might be a lovely addition to my wardrobe. I'm considering getting the one in the last photo, from Asos Men, as I think the jacket should look a little oversized-and-borrowed-from-the-boyfriend-ish. What do you think? Should I go for it?

New In | Spike Bracelet

I caved and clicked one of those spiked babies home, this one is from Asos (obviously). How do we like it?

DIY | Studded Part I

I've already shown you a glimpse of my latest DIY project on Instagram. I finally managed to find a good seller on eBay and ordered some studs. As mentioned before, I'm not really talented, but studding turned out to be all easy peasy. I'll show you an outfit with the 'updated' jacket soon.

Note: This is part I, so part II is on its way (I just ran out of studs in the process and have to wait for my new order to arrive).

Outfit | Cute

I was wearing: tee dr denim/ skirt zara/ shoes h&m

So I came down with a flu in the middle of summer. Needless to say I hate being sick! No twirling around in short skirts for me these days... Luckily, we shot these pictures before I caught this nasty cold. Hope you guys are better and like the look!

Watermelon Manicure

Every once in a while, I like to share some beauty related stuff with you. I remembered I had these little nail-art fruits I bought in the states last year and decided to give them a go as long as summer is still around. How do you like it?

Wishlist | Timeless basics

It's been long since I last published a wishlist. I have reached that stage where I feel like I have enough items in my closet, basically, and just need to find new ways to combine them. However, there are some timeless basics I seem to have skipped during past shopping trips. I have, for example, found the perfect pair of jeans by now. But there are some other pieces that I would like to possess that will last me a long time.

A perfect white shirt is a no-brainer, and yet I never came across one. It doesn't necesarily have to be that pricy one above by By Malene Birger - I'll keep my eyes open. I've been dreaming of the perfect pair of comfortable, simple pants that go with everything for a while now. It seems that Nowhere has just the right option. Oddly, I have never owned an authentic leather jacket. Which is weird since those will last long and really go with just about anything. Well, this baby from H&M Trend just happens to be on its way to me...

Outfit | Blue

I was wearing: top weekday/ shorts zara/ shoes bianco

Here's a little 'story behind the shoe': I got these shoes about three years ago, for my big 18th bday party. Back then, I thought they were sky-high and could barely walk on them. I haven't really worn them since (oops!), but when I stepped out the door in these babies recently, I was surprised. They're amazingly comfortable and easy to walk in! The soft suede makes it impossible for any annoying blisters to pop up.
So thank you for buying those, 18-year-old me! Let's hope the highest heels I own today will feel low for me in another three years ;)

Diary | #22

I went back to my favourite scent from high school: Very Irresistible by Givenchy. An all-white outfit: Cheap Monday tee and H&M floral pants. I love this cute little necklace from Fossil my mum gave me for Christmas. Still working in the morning, with my laptop and a cup of tea. I finally got a new agenda! Mine ended in July, and believe me, I felt lost without one. An outfit for a day at the office with my lovely Nikes.

Wearing: H&M tee, Zara faux leather pants, Zara bag and H&M parka. I went to see a press screening - small traditional cinemas like this are so beautiful. Another outfit: wearing Gina Tricot ripped shorts and H&M top. I did some DIYing and it involved loads of studs... Will show you soon! We went to the beach on Sunday, perfect occasion to wear this Primark onesie. Had a great day!

Another week has passed.. Oh, my! I guess I could've been more productive. Maybe this week will be better ;)

Outfit | Back Alley

I was wearing: dress zara/ boots akira

Let me introduce you to yet another of my new favourite summer dresses. This one was actually picked out by my mum, I would have never laid eyes on it myself. When she handed it to me and just said "that one would be great on you", I though "eerrmm...not my thing!". After doubting and doubting in front of the mirror I decided to just go with it and take it home with me. And, boy, was it a good decision! I haven't seen this dress on anyone else yet, my mum really has an eye for these things. What do you think about the dress?

Blogger Inspo | Cats and Rocking Chairs

Morven is an Edinburgh based blogger whose style I fell in love with a while ago. Her living in cold Scotland provides many many inspiring looks for the colder days (I love her fall outfits!). Ever since I started following Morven on Instagram, I knew I wanted to mention her as an inspiration. She is just plain gorgeous, and if you like cats, it is your duty to follow her!
Truth is, I'm not sure how to describe her. There's just something about her and the blog Cats and Rocking Chairs. Just go have a look, you'll see what I mean!

Outfit | White

I was wearing: dress zara/ shoes cox/ bag primark

Isnt't this dress amazing? I usually stay away from all things white, because I am very clumsy (especially with juices, tomato sauce...). But I can proudly say that I managed to spend a whole day in that dress without staining it. I'm growing up!

I hope you guys all have a lovely sunny weekend. I'll be indulging in some proper DIYing next, then it's time for a family barbecue. Tomorrow we'll probably go to the beach! Good times :) That justifies ditching my studying plans, right?

Details again

No time for shooting means you get details! I really liked what I wore yesterday, but there was no time to take pictures at all - had a long day at the office. I hope you enjoy this post anyways. I'll probably (touch wood!) get today's outfit snapped today though. Enjoy your Friday :)

DIY | Chain Bracelet

I'm really not a crafty person at all, yet while decluttering my room I came across this (faux) gold chain and immediately knew how I'd use it. I basically took some wool and braided it "along" the chain, creating a nice piece of armcandy. I really like the result - and it's a foolproof DIY, so try it even if you don't have gifted hands ;) Hope you like it!

Outfit | One Step at a Time

Top H&M, Suede Skirt Forever21, Boots Akira

It's so weird how I barely ever wore this skirt in an outfit post when it's so nice. I got it on my trip to LA last summer and sort of forgot it in the depths of my closet. Happens with so many pieces, sadly. Since my closet is right next to my bed, I keep staring at my clothes before I sleep and after I wake up, thinking 'I wanna wear this, this and this for an outfit shoot soon'.
