Here’s what I wore Monday September 4. I think the knitted top is super cute; I love the ruffle sleeves and all the different coloured stripes.
By the way, I just got back from a choir trip to Helsinki (Finland) yesterday, which is why I haven’t blogged the past week or so.

Last week I rewatched Legally Blonde (2001) for the 100th time and if you love pink like I do, you don’t have to look any further for inspiration. Elle Woods played by Reese Witherspoon is the number one inspiration when it comes to dressing in pink. I’d decided to do this post a long time ago, but it was very nice to rewatched all of Elle’s amazing outfits. I rewatched Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde last week as well, but I’ve decided to only feature looks from the first film.
Elle’s signature colour is obviously pink; hot pink to be exact. This matching hot pink leather outfit is probably difficult to pull off for most people, but we can still take inspiration from it. I sure wouldn’t mind owning a pink leather jacket.
This look is quite different from Elle’s other looks. The shirt and tie with the cardigan that looks a bit like a dressing gown is a very unique look, and I love it!
This outfit, on the other hand, is so Elle. I want that pink faux fur so bad!
Let’s not forget about the iconic bend and snap. This outfit is so cute, and I’m obsessed with the cropped kick flare jeans.
And of course Elle nails her first lawsuit wearing a beautiful hot pink dress with matching heels. She really brightens up that dull courtroom.
September has come to an end, which means that there are only two more months before it’s December! I’m already super excited about December and Christmas. I really can’t wait! September definitely brought some colder weather with it, but that just means that it’s time for cosy jumpers and cute socks. Here are my 5 favourites from September.
Mickey Mouse pyjamas: These are my new favourite pyjamas. I’m always cold at night, and this long sweatshirt and leggings combo is perfect for keeping me warm + I love a good Mickey print.
Glitter socks: Speaking of cute socks, I’ve been loving glitter socks lately. They add a perfect final touch to an outfit. I haven’t posted any outfits featuring glitter socks yet, but I will soon-ish.
EOS Visibly Soft lip balm in Vanilla Mint: I’ve been using EOS lip balms for years, but I just started using this one in September, and I love the scent. Vanilla and mint might sound like a strange combo, but it works. It smells so good.
Finding Nemo (film): Until a few weeks ago, I had only watch Finding Nemo once and it was so many years ago, so I didn’t remember much of it. Therefore, I was really excited to rewatch it, and it was so good!
Bones (TV series): My absolute favourite this past month has been Bones. I’ve been watching it almost every day since one of the last days of August, and I’m almost done watching season 6. I’d watched a few episodes on TV a long time ago, but I’m really enjoying watching it from the beginning and in chronological order. You really get to know the characters and their development through the series which I love.
My oldest younger sister and I often wear the same sizes in clothes. She recently cleaned out her closet and brought me and our other sister some things she didn’t want anymore. I picked two things; a super soft and cosy fleece-like jumper from the brand Noisy May and a pair of navy, pointy-toe shoes from Zara. I thought the jumper would be great for lounging around on a cold day, and I remember loving the shoes when my sister had them. She also brought me two pompom keyrings that she made herself. She is extremely creative and makes all sorts of things. She is going to make something else for me, which I’m really excited about and will be posting on the blog at some point.
In the beginning of August, I couldn’t resist the Jeffree Star Chrome Summer Collection any longer. I only purchased the two liquid lipsticks I wanted the most which are Calabasas and You. Better. Work. Calabasas is the pinky/rosy version of I’m Shook (which is one of my favourites), and it’s such a beautiful and very wearable colour. You. Better. Work. is exactly the kind of purple I’ve been wishing that Jeffree would make. It’s my favourite kind of purple, and it’s so gorgeous! He has a sale on his web page and on Beauty Bay right now if you should be interested in these shades or any other shades.
One of the biggest film style icons from the 90s is without a doubt Cher Horowitz from Clueless (1995). Cher is the queen of plaid; most of the outfits I have chosen involves plaid. She wears a lot of bold colours, but she also looks great in a more neutral colour scheme. If you’re all about that 90s fashion, Cher is the one to look to for inspiration.
Cher’s yellow plaid outfit is probably the most iconic look from the film. I personally can’t pull-off yellow, but I still think this outfit is fantastic. Cher’s best friend Dionne is also a style icon, and Cher and Dionne look great in their matching plaid outfits.
I think I like Cher’s red plaid outfit even more than her yellow one. I love the oversized coat and the beret.
Another oversized jacket and mini skirt combo. Even when she goes shopping she’s put-together.
The bottoms of the sleeves on this cardigan are incredible! The colour scheme of this look is very muted, which gives it a more girly vibe compared to the previous outfits.
This all red look is amazing! The simple red dress paired with the fabulous jacket/coat is perfect. A little too much maybe, but it’s so Cher.
I can’t believe that the last summer month will be over by tomorrow. We have had varied weather in Denmark this past month, but with a nice summer day here and there. I don’t mind that autumn is approaching though; that just means that we are getting closer to December and Christmas! But we still have a couple of autumn months to go through, and also a couple more favourites posts, so let’s start with some August favourites.
Denim jacket: I’ve been loving this denim jacket since I started wearing it in the end of July. It goes with pretty much any outfit, and it’s been the perfect jacket for the warmer days we’ve had this past month.
Gosh nail varnish (shade: 589 Sweet Rose): In the beginning of the month I wore this pink nail varnish two weeks in a row, and I absolutely loved it. I also wore pink nails another week this month, so I guess I’ve just been really into pink nails.
Bodum travel mug: My birthday was in August and one of the things I got for my birthday was this travel mug. I had done some research on travel mugs (I knew I was going to spend a lot of time at uni writing my thesis), and this one was supposed to be one of the best ones, and it really is. It’s not leaking the slightest and it keeps the coffee warm for ages.
New Girl (TV series): I had thought about watching New Girl for a while, and I finally decided to give it a go in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I finished the fifth season yesterday, and I’m really sad that there are no more seasons on Netflix at the moment. I don’t even know how to begin describing this show, but it’s so sweet and funny, and I absolutely love the characters. Every single one of them. So if you haven’t watched New Girl and you love sit coms, you should definitely give it shot.
It’s Time – Michael Bublé (album): Another birthday present I’ve been loving this month is this Michael Bublé album. I’ve been listening to it countless times, and it just makes me happy. I love all the songs on the album, and here’s just one of my favourites.
