Today's second outfit, as I promised! This one I actually have on right now because I'm going to a dinner party. As always, simple but with that one detail that makes the whole outfit a masterpiece. In this case, a neon green necklace to an almost-all black outfit.
Have a good one!
Jeesh, feels like forever since I uploaded something. As usual, I find myself panicking because I have 12 minutes to leave the house but here I am, dedicating myself to you guys <3. Anyway, this outfit I haven't worn since the summer; obviously you can't wear it now. Pretty basic but very sexy and quite comfortable. Not the shoes though. Those are hell on earth, but they're so preeeetty. Also the necklace is like the most beautiful thing I own. The outfit would be quite boring without it. Have a wonderful Friday guys!

I'm sorry I've been absent for a few days now but after my Tragic Tuesday, things went to shit even more and I didn't have the time or mood to take pictures of myself.. I will post two different outfits later tonight (in about 12h) to make up for it. Stick around!

Ah, what a shitty, useless day. Thank god I had a fluffy sweater on to touch to make myself feel better. This is such a lazy outfit I don't even know exactly why I'm posting it here. I think it's a decent way to be comfy and look good at the same time. Let that belly fat roll.
Guys, by the way, if you do enjoy this blog, please share it on to your friends and feel free to comment!
Shirt - Bik Bok
Sweater - Gina Tricot
Black jeans - H&M
Ankle boots - Scorett
Really loves these (very dirty) boots; I wear them whenever I want to wear heels and not torture my feet. I can wear these for 12 hours and I will survive. They're leather and thus a bit sensitive but they're holding up really well.
Can you see it? Probably not..shit camera. All details - little "diamond" button to brighten up the fluffy blue.

I don't usually have a problem with Mondays but man, this one was great. I haven't seen sun in 3 months (I shit you not) and today, I woke up to an extremely bright room filled with sunshine. Birds were singing and all that shit too; it was magical. It was a bit warmer too, but I'm too scared of the cold so I go with warm clothes until like ... mid May. I think the best solution to looking decent when it's cold outside is to wear as many layers as possible.

As I always say - It's in the details. Studded sleeves on the Zara khaki coat. Small studs on the shirt as well. There's a little geeky attitude to buttoning up the shirt all the way, and today felt like the right day for that.
I reaaaaally love these kind of boots, I have a few too many pairs that are in this style.. Oh well. They're not even that expensive considering the brand, and they are REALLY good quality.
I didn't actually have to use the gloves today but just in case you want something really nice, kind of warm and of average quality, get the Massimo Dutti leather gloves.
A little, useless post: absolutely love this color, it's like a very natural pink with a peachy hue. Ahhh, it's so nice and discreet and pretty. Only paid 10kr (i think that's about 1 euro) for it from H&M from the kid's section hehe. Believe it or not, it stays on for a whole week.

Sorry for not posting yesterday and for taking so long today, but come on. Let's see you guys after 24 of drinking and dancing!! And getting lost in a freaking labyrinth, and breaking two pipes in the bathroom because an earring fell down in the sink.. Ugh. Emotional night followed by breakfast at 5am.
Ah God, the amount of pain I feel in my body after the booze cruise is pretty intense and as such, it reflects on my face, which is why I decided you guys don't need to see my face today (I'm doing you a favor). This is not the outfit I had on the cruise, but I put it together for you right now because my cruise outfit was a bit ..not.. fresh.
Good ol' black boots, ah little babies. I went for a high waist skirt and crop top with long sleeves. The outfit is pretty strong and bold in itself but I can't help myself and add just a little detail - the triangle necklace. By combining the triangle with the native print on the top, I have reached a new level on my hipster scale.
A little close-up on the focus place of the outfit.

YAY Valentine's DAY
How else would I celebrate this day but on a booze cruise with my friends? OPEN BAR WOOOHOO. I really have to run now because I'm going to miss the boat. I will most likely not post anything tomorrow because I will occupy my time trying to survive the hangover, but maybe on Sunday you will see my outfit from today. Happy Valentine's day!
This is the stuff I used to get my look. I haven't included my basics in the picture, you can see those if you scroll down a bit. The Lancome Primer is definitely something I am happy to have bought even though it cost a fortune, but believe me it does miracles to your face. The Face Mist should be in everyone's kit if you don't want your face to look like a cake after having applied several layers of makeup. Eyeprimer is important to anyone who wants their makeup to stay in place, especially a liquid eyeliner. If you have small blemishes that are mostly under your skin, I really recommend the Clinique airbrush concealar. The rest of the stuff is just eyeshadows and blushes. The little kit up the on the left is incredible - I used the white part for highlighting my cheekbones and I tell you, that thing works like magic.
The brown pencil is for tomorrow when I will be madly hungover and will have red eyes hehe.

God, these pictures don't do the makeup justice. It's still pretty natural-ish because I don't look good with too much makeup on but I think this is the right amount. Notice I dont have on any kind of lipstick or lipgloss. That is because I'm having dinner soon and I'm starving so I will dedicate my mouth to eating :D
A little close-up on the eyes. It's really the simplest look for a night out. I have very dark eyes so it is essential for me to have a bright inner corner; I used a sort of champagne color. For a bit of fanciness, I just blended in some dark brown on the outer corner, as well as under my eyes. I have big eyes, but I am crazy about elongating them as much as possible, so I always use a liquid eyeliner for precision.

SHOW ME YOUR WINNING FACE
I was just on my way to the gym and thought I'd check my numbers really quick before and guys, I had 101 views! That is FUCKING MAD considering this blog started THIS week! I am so happy! If my numbers keep going up, I will buy a camera next month and start taking this even more seriously. The pictures will stop being so amateur-y... That, my friends, I promise you. Onwards to glory!!!!
Throwback Thursday! That's a thing apparently, and since I have not left the apartment today I thought I would show you what I might wear when going out. It's a very black outfit which I enriched by having small, golden jewelry. ALSO, the bright pink nail-polish I think helps brighten the look - I don't exactly want to look like a goth. Fashionable with a hint of slutty. My god, I need to work the abs before summer gets here.

The whole outfit would probably be quite blunt and boring if it weren't for the small accessories. When wearing so much black (even with a long, white shirt on), I think it's vital to bring the whole look to life with some gold. Luckily my black boots had some gold on them (the exact right amount to not look tacky) and along with a geometrical necklace I think they brought a lot of edge to the whole outfit. It's all in the details, girls.

Ah, that quality. Good ol' iPhone. I had to get myself out of the apartment to buy beer so I can do this silly beer challenge. My face just kinda shows how excited I am.
It's been a bit warm recently, like 2 degrees, which is insane for Sweden in February so I decided to ditch my winter jack and even show my ankles. "What a whore, showing her ankles!!" would someone from the Elizabethan era say. Chill outfit though, just made it a bit cooler by pulling my sleeves so that the leather sleeves would show.

WELCOME to My Blog
I've decided to start this blog in order to share my fashion knowledge with fellow young women. I want to show you that you can look incredible if you just search enough into your closet (aaaaall the way in the back) and put the right clothes together. Personally, I value brands and I am definitely a brand whore, but I can barely afford them. Being a student and living on your own is tough. I did spend a whole month's allowance on a DKNY bag and ate spaghetti for the rest of the month... hehe. Totally worth it.
Having said all of this, I welcome you again and hope you will enjoy yourself!
