Recap | October 2012




Happy Halloween you guys! Hope everyone is getting their spook on or something ;) I'm not doing anything Halloween-related today, just work and stuff...
The month is over, so it's time for another recap! Those first shots feel like such a long time ago! And the photos we shot in Venice make me miss sunshine and getaway time so much. Which look is your favourite?

Shooting in the Dark




I was wearing:
Coat Zara
Cardigan New Look
Top Dr. Denim
Pants New Yorker
Hat H&M
Boots Goertz17
I'm sure fall/winter is a blogger's least favourite season. I know these are 'White Girl Problems', but it's really tough to find the time to shoot while the sun is still up. It gets even harder when you have a boyfriend-slash-photographer who's not exactly an early bird. But luckily, the man got a little creative with those lights. They offered just enough light for you guys to catch a glimpse of the outfit. Hope you like it!

Blogger Inspo | Llymlrs



I'm off to meet with my study group on this Sunday morning, after that work is awaiting me. Not your typical Sunday, eh? You guys can sit back and relax and click through some photos, though (don't we all love doing this on a Sunday? or any day, really...), because it's Blogger Inspo time!
I'm introducing a dear lady from the UK to you today. Lily has been active in the blogger scene for quite a while now and I've been following her for well over a year now. The reason I love her blog is mainly because it's quite different from others. She mostly takes her photos with a tripod, in front of a white wall. Now, don't be fooled - her photos really are flawless! I think that makes her independent and in some sense unique. Needless to say I also love her style, it's just got that London-something. So go check out her blog now!

Meet more of my favourite blogging gals here.

Red Velvet



I came home with some bags yesterday. I mostly shopped for the boy, though, as his birthday is coming up next week, and I love, love, love getting gifts for the fellah! Hope he'll like his new goodies...
At the end of the day, I got myself a treat, too. I was on a hunt for some gorgeous sneaker wedges from Zara, but you know what happens when you go shopping looking for a specific item - it's nowhere to be found! So I got these velvet booties instead (not at Zara, though), and they were even on sale. How do you like them?

Mellow Yellow




I was wearing:
Jumper Sheinside
Leggings Monki
Jacket H&M
Shoes Zara
Friday is my free day, so I'm meeting my friend D in town for coffee and some shopping. Good times! But it's the end of the month which means deadlines are coming, so I'll have a lot of writing to do over the weekend. But I'm counting my work in shoes, so I'm motivated ;)
Enjoy your day!

Shopped in the Men's Section Again




I did it again, shopped in the men's section. I bought this cute scarf at H&M the other week and I love it. The colours are so perfect for fall! My boyfriend was almost envious because I found it first. Maybe we can share it?!

Some Days I Can't Even Dress Myself






I was wearing:
Coat H&M
Peplum Jumper H&M Trend
Skirt Monki
Boots Akira
Oh, how I love fall. I just wanna light a candle, cuddle in a huge knit jumper with a cup of tea and relax. I think my favourite spare time activities kind of resemble a 70-year-old's, but whatever, I like what I like, right?
I'm having a full schedule at uni today, 10AM till...open end! Those aren't the nicest of days, but I like going to bed in the evening knowing I've been productive. Hope you guys have a great day!

A Week in the Life of | #31


01. I was wearing an H&M leather jacket, scarf and knit cardigan and a hunkydory top for a day at work 02. I'm back to sitting in 3-hour lectures, trying to stay alert 03. We had a couple nice sunny days
04. What I wore to uni and my mum's bday dinner: Bershka suede jacket, Urban Outfitters shirt and Zara jeans 05. Had a fun night of Monopoly with friends 06. On another work and uni day: wearing H&M coat and peplum knit, Monki skirt

I know I've been a little MIA from the blog lately... I've just been super busy with both work and the start of the new semester. Being all caught up in those things, I will admit I also lost some inspiration. I've barely had the time to catch up on my favourite blogs. I'll take the time to keep working on the blog soon, though. It's a dear hobby after all!
Hope you guys are well and have a fun week.

Sequins



I was wearing: Parka H&M/ Jumper Primark/ Dress Zara/ Sequin Collar Primark/ Boots Tamaris

I know these pictures are beyond crappy! I don't know what was wrong with my camera that day... I wanted to show you the outfit anyways. I actually wore dark red lipstick, too, but you can't really see it. I'm really into lipstick lately, finally putting my little collection to use! I'll make sure to snap some red-lips outfits soon.

New York, New York




I was wearing: Jumper H&M Man/ Tie-Dye Jeans H&M/ Shoes Nike

With my last outfit from Venice I give you all the obligatory shooting venues - across a canal and in the back of a really narrow alley. I hope you like this casual look! And stay tuned for more posts. I'm done with the photos, but there's a video to come ;)

Golden


iPhone case from H&M

I've been lusting after a golden case for my phone for a while. I found this one while casually walking through H&M. Aside from looking good, it also serves well as a mirror. And for a fiver, it was clear I had to take the blingy thing home.

Bring on that Skirt





I was wearing: Top and Necklace H&M/ Skirt Mango/ Bag BCBG/ Shoes Nike

I picked up this skirt shortly before we went on vacation, hoping to wear it without tights in Italy. It's pretty tight (and my tummy was a little full, I know I know) and longer in the back than in the front. I love it! I've been looking for a skirt that allows me to follow the whole pencil skirt trend on my own terms, and I think this is one seals the deal! Think I can also use it in a more business-related context, once needed. For the trip (which included a lot of walking!), I had to pair it with some comfy sneakers. What do you think about the combination?

A week in the Life of | #30

Beautiful Venice / My boyfriend (and me) getting fashionably lost in Venice, apparently that's what you are supposed to do there / We took a ride on a gondola (le sigh, I miss the vacay times already!) / This is how amazing fall can look

My folks practically forced me to make them cookies, so I taught my sister and the boy how to (this is him trying to create a perfectly shaped cookie) / A cute little detail of a gondola / Venice isn't really the place for (high-street!) shopping, but I bought these cute pyjama pants from Oysho / Fall allows me to spend my nights at home with lots of candles lit - I do love it cozy!

Me on a bridge in Venice / The other part of my Venice shopping: Vogue Italy (which is waaayy too text heavy for someone who just wants to look at the photos and doesn't speak a word of Italian!), eyebrow pencil and concealer from Kiko / Armswag / Me on Lido beach

How unreal it seems that I was on a vacation just a week ago! I'm fully back in work/uni mode over here and would jump at the chance of a sweet little getaway with the boy anytime! But there's a lot to do at work right now, and uni officially starts again for me today. I really like my schedule for once - I get both mondays and fridays off. Score! I have a good feeling regarding this semester, feels like I'll be productive. Then again, that's what every student says at the start of a semester. Oh, well...
I've also made a couple changes to the blog here, layout-wise. I hope you guys like it and had a great week!

Outfit | Barefoot Again






I was wearing: Skirt Cubus/ Denim Shirt H&M Man/ Earrings H&M

How I love shooting at the beach! The photos almost always turn out perfectly thanks to the light and background. On our Venice trip, we took the boat over to the island of Lido to stroll around on the beach for a bit. It was fun dipping my toes into the Adriatic sea for a bit! I hope you like these photos and the outfit!

Blogger Inspo | Kenza



I'm sure everyone and their brother knows Kenza (at least in the fashion-blogger world), so I'm not even go on about who she is and what she does. I'll just say that she's one of those ridiculously hot Swedish girls who make a living of blogging. Her outfit shots have been getting better and better recently and a great deal of them inspire me a lot. Bring on the cute fall garments and some lipstick!

Venice Photo Diary
















So many photos! And this really is the cropped version of what I was originally going to post. So I won't make it even longer by babbling much. Just saying it was a wonderful four days with my love and I hope you enjoy the photos!
