OUTFIT | AUTUMN DRESS AFFAIR

ZARA coat, H&M t-shirt dress (similar), Sacha cut out boots, Primark beanie (similar), Céline sunnies, Daniel Wellington watch

I somehow tend to forget about dresses when the weather starts to get colder. So when I went through my closet to come up with a new outfit that didn't include my standard ASOS jeans that I absolutely love, I stumbled onto this beauty of a t-shirt dress. I bought this in Marbella this summer and have loved wearing it during summer. Like I said before, stupidly enough I tend to forget about things I wore during summer as I feel like "I can't wear them anymore" which basically is a big fat lie. Just put some tights on, make your hair look extra messy and throw a beanie over your head and the look is autumn/winter proof. So now that I've worn a dress again and since it has been a while since I wore one, I will start restart my dress affair today, but with a bit of an autumnal/winter twist to it.

OUTFIT | TRYING COLOUR

ZARA coat and jumper, ASOS jeans, Nike Roshe Run trainers, Céline sunnies, eBay beanie

Me trying to incorporate colour usually consists of adding some accessories of mine that are coloured. This beanie for example is one of the brightest items I own so I only like to whip it out when I'm wearing monochrome outfits. Since I'm wearing monochrome, or something close to monochrome almost every day in my life, I decided it would be fun to add some colour and since it's starting to get really cold I think beanies are the perfect way to spice an outfit up. If you don't mind being stared at, this hat is for you. If you hate it then this might not be your thing. And to be really honest with you, I have a love/hate relationship with this beanie. Sometimes I absolutely love it, like today. But other days I just want to burn it because it. So I'll just tell myself to put it away for a while, until my hatred for this beanie is over and my beanie is allowed to make an appearance again.

OUTFIT | WHATEVER WORKS

Forever21 coat (in pink and blue), H&M tee, ASOS jeans, ZARA boots, Céline sunglasses

Another day, another reason to wear this coat. I love this coat so much. It's such an easy way to add some colour to your outfit.. I was in a big rush when I wore this outfit so I chose to go safe in all black, but this coat gives it a bit more colour.  Like you could throw this coat over nearly every outfit. Like if you would want to you even could wear a dress under this coat and look amazingly chic and French. Besides the colour aspect, this coat just makes me feel all Parsian chic. Which is always a plus. Can you tell I've been reading How to be Parisian a bit too much lately? ;) A girl can dream right...

DIARY | THE SUNDAY POST


Today's Sunday post is going up a lot later than usual because I've been trying to think of anything eventful I did this week. To be brutally honest, this probably has been the most boring week since I started the Sunday post so far.

The week started with me trying to create some kind of structure into my blog posts and I am pretty sure it worked out. I came up with lots of ideas, all I have to do now is to work these ideas of mine out and to plan them in. 

I'm also starting to  eat healthier again. I've been feeling a bit mehh and insecure ever since my skin just keeps on breaking out, so I'm hoping that a healthier diet will make my skin and just my general body and mind feel better. I ate a couscous salade for lunch this week and I made way too much, as you can see on my plate, there are lots of leftovers from my couscous salade, which will be tasty. 

I have been really tired, because I've been doing so much boring stuff this week that I just wanted to stay in bed all weekend. But I'll end up feeling guilty afterwards so decided to have a lazy Saturday morning. I woke up, read some pages in How to be Parisian, which is a really funny book to read and slowly got ready after that to hang out with some friends.  

As you've probably seen on my Instagram, I've been loving my succulents and cactuses lately so my room is basically filled with all of these really pretty green plants in white pots. Great for my Instagram feed, not so great for my purse as I'm just getting broke. I just buy mine from Ikea which is succulent and cactus heaven. 

So now I'm just going to crawl back into bed for a little while to recharge some of my lost energy and then I'm off to see a friend who's turned 18.

OUTFIT | SECOND SKIN

ZARA old coat, Monki flannel (different colour), H&M jeans (similar), ZARA boots, Fendi sunnies*

This coat slowly is becoming my second skin. I love how it just looks good with everything. It's such a versatile piece. I decided to put it on over a flannel that was tucked in into my jeans on one half of to give this extremely casual look a bit more class. Since I haven't worn these jeans in ages I also decided to get these jeans out again. I finally remember why I don't like these jeans at all, they're way too long for me so these can go straight into the clothing donations pile of clothes in my room. To give me some more height I just wore some boots with a heel. And that's it.
