Winter Wishlist: Feeling (Not So) Grey

If you follow me on Pinterest, this item on my wishlist will come as no surprise. I have been repinning images of big grey wintercoats for several weeks now and I can't seem to get enough of it!
I often (ehrm.. almost always) wear black, especially in winter. That's why I think a (light) grey wintercoat will be a great addition to my wardrobe: it will lighten up the look and match fabulously with my red tartan scarf I bought in Canada (that thing is like a blanket, I love it!).
Now it's just a waiting game until the shops fill up with woollen jackets. Until then, this inspiration will do...

Have a great day!

Wanderlust in Wales



I'm back from a wonderful trip to Wales! I had a lovely time with the boyfriend, his family and his friends. I always love being in the UK: I don't know what it is, but I feel right at home. We managed to fit in some shopping (cold-shoulder jumper in the pictures is one of the purchases - more on this later ;)), some Cheeky Nando's (all the Brits will know what I'm talking about, he he), some crazy Chester partying (hence the heels... they looked lovely but felt awful at the end of the night!) and a whole lot more.

I didn't want to leave to be honest, but I've returned to the real world now *sob*. School in 1,5 week, work has already started... Is summer really already over ?! Where did it go?

Have a wonderful day!

Fringe Fest

BERSHKA jacket - get it here 

Ooooops. I actually didn't want to show you anything I had bought until after England, since I most likely will pick up some goodies there as well. BUT - I did some shopping when I had some spare time last week, and I can't just NOT show you so here we go...

I had seen this fringed, suede-like jacket in the window display some weeks ago and I immediately concluded that yes, it was very pretty but no, it would not suit me. Little did I know that, a few weeks later, I would try it on 'just to see what it's like' and I immediately fell in love with it. It's something quite different, but it's so cute and PERFECT for the transition from summer to autumn/winter. It's quite warm and I could fit a sweater underneath if I have to. (You can see these are all the arguments I told myself when I was at the till, haha)

The pictures are not the best quality as you may have noticed... the camera I'm working with really has good light as its best friend and doesn't quite function properly without. I hope it's still OK-ish anyways :)

Alrighty, I will see you after England, with hopefully some more pretty fashion (and sight-seeing?!) to show you! Let me know what you think of my new jacket :)

Looking Forward

dress

For some reason I really liked this vintage picture frame with my navy floral dress and I thought it made a really pretty photograph, haha. Agree or disagree ? 

Oops, my blog was down for about two days! I recently switched to an own domain, as you guys probably all know, and apparently something went wrong in the verifying process. Booo, I was in such a bad mood when all that happened, haha! Anyways, I'm back online now and I wanted to just sit down and catch up. I love the fact that I'm back into the blogosphere again, but I don't have as much free time as I would like and the blog is slowly getting on the backburner again (nooooo) :(

Luckily, I am starting my last half year of uni in about three weeks (I plan on graduating from my bachelors in February) and it won't be very busy. I'm quite excited for that, to just work a little on the side but also genuinely have the time to work on my blog and maybe take it to another next level. After all, this hobby brings me so much positive energy and joy, and I want to invest in that more!

I'm also very excited for this upcoming week, since I will be going to Wales on Thursday for 5 days! It's the first time I'm joining my boyfriend for a visit to the place he grew up (and where his family and childhood friends live) and I'm very excited to go and see it. It will be nice to get away too, before uni starts (and thesis stress!). Plus, we both work very hard so we hardly get to see each other - I'm very much looking forward to see a little more of his handsome face for a few days haha!!

With all these exciting plans to look forward to, I can honestly say I'm doing quite well! It's been a while since my head is (at times) just totally at peace, and it feels great! That jagged graph I talked about a month ago is definitely still going up. I feel that making decisions based on my feelings - and not apologizing for it - is one of the best things I've ever done for myself.

I hope you guys are having a great Sunday. Talk soon !

Jumping Into Fall

P1180030 (1)

Call me crazy, but I am starting to get excited for autumn. It's that time of the year that the September issues of fashion magazines are coming out, window displays show off a little more burgundy and black and I need to start thinking about buying school supplies again (yikes!). And even though I'm still walking around in shorts and rocking a pretty nice tan, I am keen to wrap myself in soft jumpers and figure hugging skinny jeans again.

I couldn't believe my luck when I was browsing H&M the other day and I found this pink jumper in the sale for a tenner. It's so cozy, and the colour is perfect for the transitional time we find ourselves in. Yay!
Expect an outfit post with this one soon :)
