Here’s the second part of my huge second hand haul. You can find pt. 1 here.
It’s always awesome finding a matching set, even though I don’t think I’ll ever wear the two pieces together. I love the print and colours, and the quality is very nice.
I found some more tartan, and this is actually a Scottish kilt. I thought it was such a fun piece, and I think it will be very interesting to style.
These corduroy trousers are one of my favourite items from this two part second hand haul. I found them in the men’s section, but they fit me perfectly. I’ve already worn them a ton.
I’m expanding my beret collection, and this fluffy plum-coloured one is quite unique. It’s been my go-to hat ever since I bought it.
I’d been looking for a pair of long square toe boots with a ’90s/early 2000’s vibe, and these are perfect. I think they’ll look good with so many different outfits.
Tomorrow, we enter the first month of spring, though the Danish weather is bloody freezing. I’m craving spring so bad! Even though February is the shortest month of the year, mine still felt quite long. My February consisted of a lot work, but also a holiday which was very much needed. My 5 favourites from February are all fashion related, and I’m sure they’ll continue to be favourites next month as well.
Oversized shearling corduroy coat: My obsession with corduroy continues, and this coat is incredible. It’s been my most worn coat this past month, and I love everything about it!
Dark blue kick flare jeans: You’ve probably noticed how much I love flared trousers, and these dark blue kick flare jeans are so perfect! They’re high-waisted and cropped, and I love the way they fit.
Black suede lace up boots: I’m so glad, I bought these boots. Because of the cold Danish weather, boots are very much needed, and these go with so many different outfits.
Zebra print belt: I’ve always liked zebra print, and this belt is the perfect way of adding a bit of zebra print to your outfit. Because of the black and white colours, it goes with pretty much everything, and it’s just a lot of fun.
Dinosaur earrings: I love dinosaurs! I’ve most likely mentioned that before. I’ve been wanting a pair of dinosaur earrings in absolute ages, and my sister got me these for Christmas. They’re probably Brachiosauruses (which is one of my favourite dinosaurs), and they’re just adorable.
In the January sales, I bought some accessories on Asos. My old favourite flat black boots are practically falling apart, so I needed a new pair of flat boots, and I found these simple, suede lace up boots from Asos’ own brand. They’re really nice and looks great with so many different outfits. A belt is a great accessory, so I bought a red one with a silver western buckle from Asos’ own brand and a zebra print one from Pieces. I love both of them, and I’ve especially gotten a lot of use out of the zebra print one. Like many others, I’m very into red at the moment, and I didn’t own any red framed sunglasses. I also got a big grey scarf, because even though I’m longing for spring, it’s still very cold in Denmark, so scarfs are needed.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or whatever you celebrate and happy New Year! Another year has come to an end, and for me it’s the end of an era. I handed in my master’s thesis a few days ago which means that I’m saying goodbye to the university after 5,5 years. Even though it will be a month before I actually get my master’s degree, I have already gotten a job, and I start working in just a few days. 2018 is going to be challeging and filled with new experiences which I’m really looking forward to. Let’s say goodbye to 2017 with some December favouites.
Fluffy Christmas socks: Throughout the month I have expressed my love for Christmas clothing, and I’ve loved wearing all my different jumpers and T-shirts. I’ve also loved wearing these fluffy Christmas penguin socks. They’re extremely soft and comfortable and so cute.
Red boots by Raid: I’ve been obsessed with these red boots in December, and I have a feeling that the obsession will continue. They went so well with most of my christmassy outfits, and they’re a perfect pop of colour.
Maybelline Fit Me Luminous + Smooth foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain): My favourite foundation for the past year or so has been the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, but because I had a rash underneath my eyes, I’ve had to stay away from matte make-up, so I decided to try the Luminous + Smooth version of the foundation, and I’ve loved it.
Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Poinsettia: I’ve mainly worn red lipsticks in December, and this metallic dream has been my favourite. Even though it’s metallic, it’s very wearable, and I’ll continue to wear it all year round.
Finding Dory (film): I finally got to watch Finding Dory, and I was suprised by how great it is. I think it’s even better than Finding Nemo, and I’ll definitely rewatch this film another time.
Here’s what I wore Monday December 18. Are you tired of seeing these red boots yet, because I’m not tired of wearing them! And they are a perfect match for the festive Mickey Mouse T-shirt.
(Trousers + bomber cardigan – Monki, T-shirt + belt – H&M, boots – Raid)
October has come to an end which means that in only one month it’ll finally be December. October was a very busy month for me; I’ve been working hard on my master’s thesis and I also went on a choir trip to Helsinki. In November my main focus will definitely be my thesis, and I’m pretty sure that December will be here in no time then. But first, here are some of my favourite things from the month of October.
Burgundy Oxford style shoes by Duffy: I bought these shoes years ago, but I hadn’t really worn them much. I started wearing them more this year, and this past month I’ve been wearing them a lot. I love the dark burgundy colour and the chunky soles.
Warm beige shoulder bag by Belsac: I bought this bag at a second hand store in July, and I decided to bring it with my to Helsinki earlier this month. It was the perfect sized bag for a 5 day trip, and as I’ve mentioned before I love the colour and shape of it.
Juvia’s Place The Saharan eye shadow palette: I expressed my love for this palette in my last post. It’s so gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to play around with it even more.
Funny Girl (film): I’d been wanting to watch this film for ages, and I finally got to this month. I started watching it in Helsinki with one of the girls from the choir, and then we watched the rest in Helsinki and Riga airport respectively on our way back home. I already new and loved the music, and Barbra Streissand and Omar Sharif did such an amazing job portraying Fanny Brice and Nick Arnstein.
A. C. Perch Afternoon blend tea: When my mum visisted me in the beginning of October, we went to a beautiful tea house and had delicious tea, scones, and petit fours. We tried two different types of tea and our favourite was the Afternoon blend which we purchased a bag of each to take home, so I’ve been drinking a lot of it since.
