That perfect everyday outfit & an honest talk

Checking in with a portion of love for you guys! I’m having such a rough time atm, I think the weather is effecting me a more this year than ever before. It is so freezing every single day, and I feel like I can’t spend any time outside. I’m tired in the morning, tired during the day, tired at night. And with that I don’t feel very motivated. Very little new year, new me over here, hah! So yeah, I could really use a big splash of goodness, so I decided to give that to you. There might be someone out there who needs it!

Edward and I went out to shoot this outfit on a very cold Sunday afternoon last week, and I’m telling you, it was the quickest shooting sesh we’ve ever done. While blowing these kisses at you (that I so dearly need) I could see my own breath in the air.

But nevertheless, I wasn’t gonna let that stop me! I have an outfit to show, ya know?! I’m so in love with this blue, almost sculptural sweater from H&M. I’ve been wanting a blue knit for a long time, I just had to find the perfect one. I think it’s a very classic color, and since I’m a jeans girl (always have been) I thought it would make a great tone-in-tone outfit with 90’s looking vintage jeans. As a cool detail I put on a baker boy hat, 50% because I’m loving this shape of hat atm, and 50% because my hair was greasy. It was a win win situation.

I hope you’re all having a lovely day! If not, let’s share our negativity in the comments below. We all need to just get it out sometimes. <3

My favorite outfits from 2017

It’s time for a look down the ‘#OOTD Memory Lane’ and I thought it would be fun to pick my favorite outfit from each month in 2017, but it turns out my blogging was less consistent in the beginning of the year and therefore the plan had to change a bit. So how about I just choose 10 of my favorites? Let me know in the comments down below which is your favorite? If any (Hah!).

greenery510. Green on green and a pop of red in this outfit from a May morning on Madison Avenue.

zara-bag9. A summer outfit from the week before Edward and I flew to Spain to meet my family for a vacation outside Barcelona.

shadow8. I ran around the UES looking like a mix between a sailor and a 90’s chic.

new-york-outfit7. I started my new job and wore this outfit on-and-on until the jeans one day broke right under my butt. Not a good office look.

img_95386. I wore simple dresses like this one on the Autumn days that still felt like Summer.

zara-blazer5. I picked pumpkins in my favorite blazer this year.

img_05344. I bought a new Winter coat and a cute baret to match (or mis-match). Been loving the masculine shape of the coat with the more feminine hat.

58523741-3578-4571-878e-bc7fe00f27ad3. Red will probably stay my favorite color forever. This sweater was this year’s Christmas sweater for me.

img_18312. Who knew 2017 would be the year I started wearing all black? Never in my life would I have thought. Never would my big sister have thought, and she also commented on my Instagram that in our whole life she has never seen me in all black. Big thing. But I must say I understand why it’s such a thing.

1. A new favorite in my closet. And an addition to my fur/faux fur collection. I now have two. Maybe I love it because Edward hates it? Or maybe because I feel a little extra? Or because everyone seems to give me compliments? IDK, but I love it so much.

December 17th: OOTD

img_2280Today I wanted to bring a festive everyday outfit to you guys!

Ever since I saw Isabella Thordsen wearing this green fur, I fell in love with the color and look of the boxy jacket. I do have a beige fox fur already, but who doesn’t need another cool fur (faux)? I do. It is from the Loavies, which I think is based in The Netherlands, and I was so happy to learn that they also ship to the US!

I love poshing up (is that even a saying?) the plain ‘jeans and a shirt’ look with cool boots, furs, and fun accessories. The crossbody I’m wearing is from Aimee Kestenberg’s Autumn collection, so when one came return to the office from the warehouse I had to snatch it for myself. I love the embroidered golden stars on it and of course the size when I only need to bring keys, phone, and wallet.

I actually bought the faux fur and the metallic boots as a Christmas gift from my grandmother, my father, and my father’s wife as they sent me money so I could buy what I wished for. So lovely.

Happy December 17th (only 6 days till Christmas) <3

December 10th: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

img_1834

And then it started snowing in New York City!

I woke up so excited. I had bought snow boots on Friday after work to be properly ready for the snow I had heard about, but didn’t really believed would actually come (you know, they always say it’s gonna snow, and it never arrives). The snow makes everything feel so festive and magical. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

We actually went out in the snow to buy a bike for me, so that I can bike to and from work, but I guess I’ll wait a little bit before I do that. I don’t mind though, this is so cozy!

Happy Sunday guys.

December 9th: Black on black on black

img_1829Happy December 9th guys!

I had some Friday Favorites to share with you yesterday, but my day turned out crazy busy, and I ended up not even checking in. I’ll share those with you another day. Maybe tomorrow. We’ll see. But I have some good Christmas-y favorites in there guarantying a festive mood.

For now let’s talk about what I call “My fancy outfit.” I never wear all black, but when I did a little ASOS haul on Black Friday, I was suddenly so drawn to this. I think key to an all-black outfit it mixing fabrics. So in this outfit I’m wearing a knitted sweater paired with silky suit pants, and shiny dress shoes with cool studded detail on the tip. I’m loving it! It will probably be my new go-to outfit for casual chic events.
