Casual Summer Outfit


Shop my style:

Hello you guys!

As I am typing this I am actually currently sitting in the library, procrastinating continuing my master theses and admiring the beautiful summer weather... from inside.... (well, at least they have air con here!).

I quickly wanted to share this cute summer outfit that I recently got! These shorts by Miss Selfridge are honestly the most comfy thing I have bought in MONTHS, excuse me while I live exclusively in these for the foreseeable future, haha! They fit really loose and are very high waisted, so that ticks all the boxes for summer shorts for me. You can cinch in the waist with the tie-rope belt, so I found them to be quite flattering, but super casual. They are also an amazing price at under $50 and not see-through at all.



I paired the shorts with my all time favorite basic white tee, the 'Ultimate' by Asos. I love it because it is not too thin and see-through, as most white T-shirts are to be honest, and it also has the perfect cut! I am wearing my normal size in these photos, but get a size up for that true oversized fit! I also wore this adorable neutral bucket bag by Glamorous. I was unfortunately not able to find this exact bag on the Website, however, here is the bag in black and here is a cute dupe! My trusty white low top Converse are a huge summer staple for me, but this outfit would work with numerous different shoes, like sandals, slides, mules or even wedges!

What do you think of my casual summer outfit? How are you spending your summer months? Any exciting plans? :)

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Affordable Ways To Rock This Years Summer Trends!

Following trends isn't always exactly the most affordable thing to do, especially in times like these, where trends seem to emerge and disappear on the daily! I am not one to follow every single trend out there anyway, which is why I picked out 5 fun summer trends to try out this season - along with affordable fashion pieces to achieve that look!

I hope you enjoy!

Acid Wash
I am weirdly excited about this trend, because it reminds me of my childhood haha! No, but seriously, I definitely owned a pair of acid wash skinny jeans in grade 5 or 6... Crazy to think that this trend is back! And I actually really really do love the look! The skinny jeans have been replaced with straight leg and more baggy cuts, but the wash is definitely straight out of the 2000s!


Bold Prints 
Bold prints have come to the forefront of our summer wardrobes for the past couple of years now, but this season things are taken even further by mixing and matching different clashing prints! While I have to be honest here and happily leave that trend to the bravest of fashion girls out there, I stick to one statement piece in a bold print and pair it with a neutral outfit! No matter how you style it, those clothing items just make you happy!


Living Coral 
'Living coral' is the official color of the year 2019 and it is the absolute perfect summer color! There are sooo many cute coral clothing pieces in the shops right now, I actually had a hard time narrowing down my selection. I feel like this is a color that suits so many different skintones and that is definitely wearable on a number of occasions. Added bonus: it makes you look more tan, ha!



Tie-Dye 
Can we even beliiieve that tie-dye is actually back?? Like, who would have ever thought! I actually think that tie-dye is so, so cool and I am pretty happy that it made a comeback. You do definitely have to pay some attention as to what to style it with, but if done right, it's such a cool statement look! Your thoughts?




 Cargo Pants
And another one straight out of my childhood - cargo pants! I am honestly living for all these throwbacks this season you guys haha!! This is probably one of the more wearable trends and also so so comfy. Maybe not something for the office, but cargo pants definitely make for a cool weekend style.





Which one of these trends are you rocking this season? Which one do you like, but would not wear?? I personally can not wait to jump on the acid wash jeans and tie-dye trend - maybe not in that combination hahaha, but very excited to style those trends!

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Still In Stock Pieces From The #NSale!

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is still going strong with one full week still to go and shop our little hearts out haha!

I know there is always so much pressure with getting the items you really want within the first few hours of the sale starting basically, because Nordstrom states year after year that they are not going to restock sold-out pieces... well, turns out they do!

I took a little browse today and was quite surprised with what items are fully restocked again, so I wanted to share them with you below!
Happy shopping :)

kitten heels | Zella leggings | adidas leggings
Tory Burch tote | ankle strap sandals
joggers | skincare trio | initial necklace

Sale price $31.90, original price $48

This 12K-gold plated necklace is super cute, I love it especially for it's dainty look and I like how the initials are not capital letters, which gives it a more unique spin compaired to other initial jewelry.

Sale price $29.90, original price $40

I was so surprised to see that these leggings are still fully in stock in all sizes! There are a few adidas leggings worth checking out, but I particularly liked the light grey ones here. 

Sale price $64.90, original price $99.95

These staple pumps are still available in a ton of sizes and I do love the cute cut out on the side! They also come in black and navy.
Sale price $38.90, original price $59

These leggings are a staple for sooo many people, honestly, I hear and read rave reviews about them haha! They have 6k reviews and a 4.5 star rating on the Nordstrom website, which is pretty insane, and they are FULLY STOCKED right now!!
Sale price $64.90, original price $99.95

I have not yet seen any blogger feature these Vince Camuto sandals anywhere, which is surprising because I find them absolutely amazing! They come in A TON of colors and it really depends which color is available in what sizes, so definitely take a browse between the options!

Sale price $156, Value $236.50

Lancome skincare is one of the most luxurious and effective on the market in my opinion and also this #nsale exclusive trio is not particularly affordable, you can save almost $100 compaired to buying each product on its own - amazing deal in my opinion!

Sale price $25.90, original price $39

These joggers look sooo comfy and the price is amazing in my opinion! Fully stocked again!!

Sale price $352.90, original price $528  

Now, I think it's quite shocking that this particular tote is back in stock again because it always sells out pretty much instantly in the early access sale haha! Well, even better for those that did not yet manage to get their hands on it :) It's available in black and blush pink.

Two Ways To Style A Pleated Maxi Skirt!

I don't know what it is but lately I have been having so much fun with styling skirts and dresses - very unusual for a jeans-and-a-tee kinda girl like me!

I recently picked up this nude colored pleated skirt by New Look and specifically envisioned styling it with my usual white sneakers and a leather or denim jacket, however I also styled it up recently with some pumps and a blouse. Below you can find both of my looks, which one is your favorite??



As I was saying, this was the exact look I envisioned when ordering the skirt: my style is definitely more "tomboy" and maybe even a tad edgy, so I like to take ultra-feminine pieces like this pleated nude skirt and toughen them up a bit. White sneakers go with absolutely everything in my book and depending on the weather I'd throw on either a distressed denim jacket or an oversized leather jacket.

Shop my look:






Of course you can absolutely style this skirt in a more classic manner and pair it with a blouse or a nice tank, some heels and an evening bag! I really liked the detail of rolling up the sleeves on this black button down and tying it up right above the skirt. I actually wore this look to the office on a day I wanted to dress up more and got a ton of compliments for it!

Shop my look:




Are you a jeans or a skirts typ of person? Do you like the look of pleated skirts? 
If so, how do you style them? 
Let me know in the comments below!


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!
