OUTFIT | BACK TO BUSINESS

Bershka tee, ASOS leggings, Aldo boots, H&M shopper (in stores now), Celine sunnies

It's easy to get caught up in buying certain items. This is a problem I've been suffering with for the past few months. I constantly bought either white, black or striped tops. So now I have quite the monochrome wardrobe already and most people would probably stop buying the basics, but now I feel like I want to get myself even more black, white and stripey tops. There's still so many things on my basics list that I feel like I haven't got hanging in my wardrobe yet, such as a plain white shirt, a plain black shirt and I have the same problem with buying jumpers. So as much as I loved buying this tee, it wasn't something I needed to buy. So it's time for me to get back to business, next time I am in town, I will leave town with at least one of the items listed above.

OUTFIT | JUST A DREAM

COS top, Glamorous leather skirt (similar), Sacha boots, CĂ©line sunnies

The past two days were pretty warm, so I had hope for a little bit of summer and hoped to catch some rays, but sadly enough summer definitely is over and this probably is going to be the last bare legs outfit you will see of 2014. Summer's comeback was all just a dream.  I don't mind it all that much though. I love autumn just as much as I love summer. I hopped on my bike today and I could smell autumn in the air. I biked through this really long lane full of trees and to see all the leaves changing actually made me really excited to get my first hot chocolate and let's not forget the coat-buying, because yes, it is that time of year too, where I go crazy on buying coats. Next two stops? Forever21 and Primark!

FIVE FAVOURITES | AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER


It's that time of the month again, no not that time of the month, It's time for my five favourites posts again. I haven't done one in August, but I'm pretty sure I've loved these items throughout August as well as September, so it was pretty easy for me picking what I loved most during these past two months.

First of I have this Zara long sleeve striped tee and like I said in yesterday's outfit post, I am obsessed with stripes, I am pretty sure I have a stripey top for every season, but that is only until recently. I own many striped short sleeved tee's, a few vest tops and jumpers even. However a long sleeved stripey top was pretty much missing in my wardrobe, so I popped into Zara, walked into this beauty and picked it up. Simple love story.

My next favourite are these gorgeous Zara cut out boots. I wore them nearly the whole month and besides the fact that they cut my heel up after running around on them for a whole day, they're just a gorgeous pair of boots aren't they? I don't have much else to say on these beauties to be honest.

This NARS creamy concealer in Custard has been an absolute favourite of mine this month. Nars would have to be my favourite make-up brand. It's too bad that they don't sell any NARS products in the Netherlands, because I am pretty sure I will have to repurchase this amazing concealer. Ever since I started using this concealer my friends and family started giving me compliments on my skin and I mean, that says it all right?!

Zara has the best fragrances and they're extremely cheap! This one is Zara Black Peony. This kinda smells like Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf and I love that fragrance to death, so when I discovered this cheap lil' beauty I immediately picked it up. Definitely give it a little sniff when you're in Zara next time! Zara really does great perfumes! 

My last favourite of these past two months has been the pore minimiser by The Body Shop. I bought this in Marbella in August because I felt like I needed to protect my pores from my SPF so I just bought this on a whim and I don't regret it at all. Ever since I started using this, my skin became so much better. I honestly feel like this pore minimiser prevents my pores from soaking up too much make-up, which means less breakouts for me and my oily skin!

So those were my five favourites of this month. I'd love to know what your favourite products of the month have been as I love trying out new products!

OUTFIT | STRIPE SCALE

H&M coat (similar), Zara tee and bag (similar), ASOS jeans, Converse All Stars, Ray-Ban clubmaster, Boohoo hat

She's wearing that coat and a striped tee again, I hear you thinking and I completely understand what you're thinking. I just realised that the only tees left in my wardrobe basically are striped, white, black or grey, so there's not much choice left in that department. Besides that I also recently discovered that I don't own any autumnal coats besides this beauty of a duster and my 3 leather jackets. So yes, I am wearing these two again because I basically threw away all of my colourful clothes in a "I don't wear this anyway clear out session". Now let's buy some more coloured tees and some autumnal coats.

OUTFIT | MAKE A JOKE OF IT ALL

H&M jacket (similar) and jumper, ASOS jeans, Zara bag (similar) and boots, Celine sunnies

I tend to always pick either black, or grey jeans up as I personally think they look the best on me. But it was a bit too much for me to wear black jeans during summer so I wanted to get myself a blue pair of jeans and ended up going for these from Asos! They're kinda too big around ankles so I just tend to fold them over like I did in the photos, as it gives the boots I'm wearing more detail and my jeans don't feel like they're too baggy/saggy around the ankles, which I honestly hate!
