The unexpected

dsc_9342

Sooooo I have to admit. That blonde hair wasn’t much of a success. The original idea was making it super blonde but since my hair simply refused, it turned out much darker than I wanted. And it didn’t do much for me at all. So after a few weeks of unhappiness I went back to dark again. Sometimes you just have to admit your defeat. Not all experiments are a succes. I did another experiment though that did turn out well, and that is (after some great responses for you guys) I got myself a pair of knee high boots. And I must say I’m liking them! What do you guys think?

New in

img_7272img_7274

It’s been quite a while since I got myself a new bag. I actually don’t have that many, just because I’m very picky when it comes to bags and I own a few good basics that are hard to beat. This one with leopard ponyhair though caught my eye immediately, because I like they idea of quite a basic bag with a little extra detail to it that makes it an eyecatcher. It didn’t break the bank either! Get it here.

Also new, these white Calvin Klein sliders. Maybe slider season is over but I have a trip to Aruba planned next month so these will be perfect for that!

fluffy feet

dsc_9111

I guess summer is officially over. I’ve been sticking my head in the sand a little bit though, because I just am not ready. OK, maybe I’m a little excited to wear big sweatshirts again and Christmas (yay) is starting to come closer, but I’m not really ready for tights and jackets. This super cute dress I got last week (super sale score by the way) will however look good in fall as well and on parties, and I’m taking those fluffy sliders on my feet right into fall as well. Faux fur season, bring it on.

Lace

dsc_8856dsc_8811

I’m not really the lace-wearing type of girl. Usually I don’t like how it looks ‘cute’. I usually don’t want to look cute or girly. Here comes the confession. I watch a lot of TLC and Say Yes To The Dress is one of my guilty pleasures to watch. On one day after a bit of a marathon, some pretty lace wedding dresses caught me thinking about lace. That’s exactly when I was browsing ASOS just to see what’s new, and I spotted this lace skirt. Like it was meant to be. Without thinking about it too much I clicked it home. A day later, when I was cured from my head being up in wedding dress-sky, I wasn’t too sure what to think of my impulsive order. Until it came in. I actually really like the lined chunky lace and although I of course had to dress it down with a boxy black jumper, I don’t mind that it’s kind of ‘cute’. Who know’s what I’ll wear on my wedding day..

Knee high

fall-trend-2016-knee-high-boots-shop-online

There’s no way of getting around it (although I’d love for there to be a way) but fall is coming. Us girls, we might as well prepare. So what are we wearing this fall? One trend not to miss is the over the knee boot, that is everywhere. We might have Kim Kardashians questionable looks to thank for that, but luckily there are some very tasteful pairs out there.
I guess the knee high boot isn’t for everyone, it does create a bit of a daring look. I’ve been thinking about them all week and whether I’m going to make the trend my own or not. Still not sure! Would you wear them?

Laid-back

dsc_8787

The days we spend together are the days I feel relaxed. I feel flexible, sometimes energetic, sometimes laid-back. You take me where I want to be, anywhere, but maybe not to a party. Some say you should hide inside but those who say so don’t value you like I do. I’ll take you with me whenever I want to, I don’t care what others say. You’re good for any occasion, whether it’s serious or play. You and yours have a special place in my heart you know, and you’re the most comfy thing I know. Sweet sweet joggers, I wear you with love I can honestly say, not only in the weekend, but especially on Friday.

Monochrome

DSC_8652

What’s really hot at the moment, and seems right up my street, is wearing co-ords. Monochrome, matched items that are meant to go together but can also be worn apart. Another thing I don’t mind is leggings making kind of a comeback. Not everyone agrees, but I can appreciate leggings every now and then, especially in looks with a sporty edge. Thank Kylie Jenner, maybe, but I sure don’t here the boys complaining about them either. Anyways this ensemble does it for me, I love the contrast of a somewhat sexy legging with a high neck oversized jumper. Didn’t break the bank either!
