9 Affordable Camel Coats To Shop For Right Now



A camel coat is one of the best fall staples to me and definitely one of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe during this colder season!
 Since temperatures have finally dropped here in Germany, I am happy to be able to bring out my new one (I picked up the one from Mango in the third row below). It is sooo easy to style, goes with everything and seriously elevates an outfit instantly!

I do agree that it is a piece worth investing in, however my favorite more affordable retailers have been stepping up their game lately when it comes to outerwear and right now the stores are flooded with amazing camel coats and a lot of them do not lack in quality!

Here is a round-up of nine AMAZING camel coats I found while browsing online - and the best part is: they are all under €100!
Happy shopping!


Top row from left to right: Boohoo, ASOS Petite, Topshop

Which one is oyur favorite?? I love my Mango one of course, however I also think the plaid New Look one is just gorgeous and adds a trendy and unique touch to the camel coat style don't you think?

10 Wall Decor Ideas


 


I moved into my new apartment about two and half months ago now and am actually pretty proud how far I have come with my interior so far!

Most of my furniture is where it belongs, the decor is coming together and I already really feel at home at my new place - isn't that the best feeling ever? :)

However, the walls in my bedroom are still unbelievably boring plain and white... so I spend most of my evening yesterday browsing pinterest for cute wall decor inspos that are not that hard or time consuming to put together!

Here is an edit of what I found, which decor idea is your fave?


This round cable shelf is such a unique take on a traditional book shelf - I love how clean it looks yet it adds life to your room if you add plants to it. 


I freaking love this idea so much! It adds so much texture to a plain floating shelf and is such an eye catcher! Pretty easy to achieve as well, there are a ton of pre designed layouts on the Internet!


Of course a gallery wall will always be one of my favorite decor inspos, even though I find that it is not that easy to assemble and to find pictures that have the same vibe and go really well together - print and size wise! Any tips??


This is suuuch a cute idea and definitely something I want to recreate! Those little shelf panels are only about 5€ from Ikea and then you would only need thick thread and some sort of ring to hang it up with - super cool and so unique!

 


A wall clock is such an easy way to add character to a room, don't you think? I love the look of this wooden one but I personally would go with a metal version for my living room.


Mirrors are another quick way to elevate a room and also make it appear bigger! Not sure how I feel about two mirrors, I would probably opt for one huge mirror or several smaller ones in a geometric shape - what do you think?


A hanging rug is definitely one of those instant make-your-house-your-home decor pieces haha! I looove them for the living room or even the hall way! Urban Outfitters often have some really cute ones.


This plant wall makes my heart pitter patter haha :) I have no place to put up something like this at my place, but this would look amazing in huge, open spaces, like a loft!


This is another DIY idea for hanging up photos: you just need some sort of thicker thread and nails to create the geometric shape of your choice - voilá you make your own photo gallery!


I love the very industrial vibe of this - super pretty! I can imagine three of these shelfs just hung up in a horizontal row would also look amazing!

Little Things You Can Do To Immediately Feel Happier!


Right now, as I am sitting down to write this blogpost it is the end of 'one of those days': I didn't have a good night sleep, I woke up feeling down for absolutely no reason, work was stressful, I missed my train back home and don't even get me started on all those little things that kept on happening all day long that absolutely pissed me off.

I came home a few hours ago feeling upset, discouraged, tired, uninspired and a little bit angry - just overall I was not feeling good! I was in such a bad mood that I even decided not to go to the gym tonight, even though I normally love working out.

Then I stumbled upon an article when I scrolled through my Social Media accounts like it was second nature that treated the topic of how your mood is right before you go to bed can actually not only affect the ability to fall asleep but the quality of your sleep as well! Call it a sign of the universe or just pure coincidence - I there and then decided I would NOT have such a bad sleep AGAIN and in return, I had to do something about me feeling down. Something that would lift my mood and it had to happen IMMEDIATELY!

Which led me to writing this blogpost :)
I wanted to share five little things that always cheer me up when I am feeling a bit down and comfort me in such a way, that I feel happier. Keep on reading to find out how I do it.


Good Music Is Always A Good Idea
It is not a coincidence that throughout history music was always used as a way to escape the hardships of the real world and bringing people together to celebrate life. This sounds super cheesy, but if you think about it, there are not many other things on this world that are so readily available anywhere and have such an impact on your mood instantly. I would not really recommend listening to a Lana Del Rey album while you are trying to get out of a little rut, but turning on your favorite artist and a feel-good playlist can work wonders. There is just one rule - play it LOUD!

Do Not Underestimate The Power Of Working Out 
It is scientifically proven that physical activity is not only beneficial for your health but not less importantly (maybe even most importantly) for your mind and well-being! The reason for that are the production of peptides in our bodies that tell the brain 'Hey, I'm feeling great!' - I'm pretty sure we all have experienced the post-gym-amazingness-feeling. Now that physical activity can be a proper gym session, or a yoga class, or a walk through your neighbourhood, or a dance party all by yourself in your room - just MOVE!

Talk To A Loved One - Just Because
Here I really want to highlight the additive 'just because'. I am not trying to tell you to call your mum and complain high and low about how shitty your day was and why you're feeling upset (this is honestly waisting your time if you think about it and is just not necessary at all), but try calling a friend, talk to a family member, a colleague,... just for the sake of having a conversation. Listen to what they have been doing, what is going on right now, ask them about their plans for the weekend - but keep it positive! You have no idea how many times I felt so much better after doing exactly that and trust me, even a simple Whatsapp convo works wonders!
Endorphins, endorphins, endorphins 
Endorphins are called 'happiness hormones' for a reason. They are responsible for that rush of sudden energy and contendness - you feel happier! And isn't it amazing that our own bodies are actually capable of producing and releasing such a hormone? There are many different ways to initiate releasing a bigger amount of endorphins, one of which is exercising, as I touched on before. But also some foods like chocolate or spicy meals and laughter can have the same effect. Try closing your eyes, thinking about something that makes you happy and just smile for one minute - you will trick your brain into feeling happier right away. Seriously, try it out right now!
Ban The Negative Thoughts
This one sounds easier than it is, which is why I wanted to mention it last. In order to actually turn your mood around instantly, you have to ban any negative thoughts - no exception! Whenever a single, little, quiet thought of something that upsets you tries to kreep in, mute it right away. Replace it with something positive. Even thinking about puppies for twenty seconds works - I've tried that haha! This requires a bit of practice, but you alone are able to control what you are thinking about, so why would you let negative thoughts make you feel a way that you do not want to feel?

I am actually feeling so much better after typing this out! These tips are only small, but they work - try it out for yourself!
Now excuse me, I will make my way to the gym right now!
What are your tips on how to feel happier instantly?

5 Affordable Faux Leather Jackets To Buy Right Now!


A good faux leather jacketis definitely one of my all time fall staples!
And to not get too repetitive, I like to keep a good selection of leather-looking jackets on me to switch up my looks. From typical biker jackets to a suede looking style in a fun color - they are just the perfect way to elevate even the simplest t-shirt and jeans outfit during this time of year.

I always turn to Zara for a good faux leather biker jacket. They do one every year and I've never been disappointed! However, they are so many cute jackets out right now by a lot of different brands!

So, I wanted to do a round-up of five really cute styles that I found while browsing my favorite onlineshops and to make it even more fun: none of these are over €90 and the majority are even under €50!

Happy shopping!


The Classic

 


As I already mentioned, Zara is always my go to when it comes to a good, affordable and classic faux leather jacket! I've had one for three years now and it looks as good as new to be completely honest! This is this years model and I do love the rocker chic style, with all those details and the classic cut. 
 






















The Suede 


 




In my opinion nothing screams fall more than a suede jacket in a seasonal color! This faux suede jacket by Mango is so amazing, super simple, but it comes in five great fall colors - mustard, dove blue, burgundy, beige and brown - that will go amazing with your wardrobe.  











The Modern



 



I thought this more unconventional leather jacket by VILA is such a great modern take on the trend piece! Definitely something different than anything I've seen in the stores and it completely changes a look. I think this is also great for those girls that dress pretty girly and feel like a traditional biker jacket is too heavy looking for their style. 










 The Colorful


 




Now for the girls that really like to have fun with their wardrobe - and their outerwear in particular!
This adorable blush pink jacket will look extremely cool paired with light-wash denim and white sneakers, I also really like the crinkly texture of the leather. It's just overall such a cool statement pieces - don't you agree?








The Warm






And last but not least I wanted to share this pretty nude one by H&M. It is padded with a light layer of faux fur - it does not look too warm at all. The leather has a look of rawness and the seams are unfinished which just adds such a unique look to this jacket. I would buy this a size up to give it a really oversized feel.

 










This is it for my round up of super cool and trendy faux leather jackets that also do not break the bank! Did you like it? Which style is your fav??

3 Ways To Style Overknee Boots


I have recently picked up this pair of Overknee Boots and have since been obsessed with finding different ways to style them! New clothing pieces always inspire sooo much when it comes to trying out something new and styling new outfits - don't you think?!

Here are some of my favorite overknee boots that are in store at the moment:

           Prettylittlething - €65.99                                         River Island - €93.99                               Asos Design - €65.99 


So of course I have been passionately pinning away every single outfit that incorporates overknee boots that inspired me - as well as turning to some of my favorite bloggers for styling inspo (my personal queens when it comes to styling overknee boots are for sure Amelia Liana and Maria from Mia Mia Mine!).

Today I wanted to share three different ways that I really want to style my new overknee boots this season. I hope you enjoy!


1. The Mini Skirt


picture source                                           picture source                                             picture source


As I already mentioned above, Amelia Liana is one of my biggest style inspo (in general, but especially) when it comes to wearing overknee boots. One look she is doing a lot which really stood out to me when browsing her blog many times was a pair of suede overknee boots with a mini skirt - admittely not something that I would first think about to going together that well, but doesn't it look amazing on her??! I just bought this A-line suede red mini skirt and can not wait to pair it with my new boots.

2. The Sweater Dress


              picture dress                                       picture source                                             picture source

Pairing a snuggly sweater dress with a overknee boots is for me personally a more obvious way to wear this trend, but it is suuuch a cute look as well don't you think?? Again, one blogger really stands out with this style and that is Maria from the blog Mia Mia Mine. She wears this look like no other in my opinion, I personally looove a grey sweater dress like this one I got recently with a pair of black suede boots.   

3.  The Skinny Jeans

                     picture source                                               picture source                                             picture source

Wearing overknee boots over a pair of skinny jeans is probably the easiest and most effortless way to style them! And I also really really like this look, I think it makes your legs look miles long - don't you agree? I would pair overknee boots with a pair of black or dark blue skinny jeans.
  
Do you like to wear overknee boots? How to you style them? And which of these three different looks is your fav??

Toasted Coconut Hair: Everything About The New Trend

 
There is a new trend on the block to give our manes a makeover this fall: Toasted Coconut Hair!

Admittely, I couldn't help myself but think about a new delicious Starbucks drink when I read that name for the first time, but apart from an adorable title this hair trend is also really freaking beautiful!

So, why toasted coconut?
The trend is actually a play on our all time fave hair color bronde - a blend of both blonde and brown nuances to  give the hair a sunkissed, lively and multi-dimensional look. Now, the coconut shade, as the name suggests, a very light, icy blonde, is added to the tips of the hair and pulled up - similar to the balayage technique - which adds a very stark contrast to the base color.


The result is a super fascinating, multi-facetted look that kind of tricks the eye because you really can't pin point at first just how many shades are blended together to achieve the style.

The actual shades that are being used depend on the individual base color of the hair as well as - of course - personal preferences! I've seen amazing interpretations of this trend, from super ashy grey-ish locks to warm caramel tones.


In my personal opinion this is the most genious and most "me" hair trend since balayage and definitely something I will try out! I think an ashy bronde with stark platinum tips is my personal fav!

What do you think? Do you like the toasted coconut trend? Is that something you would ever rock or do you prefer a totally different style? Let me know!

Currently Shopping


Hello everybody!

It's a bank holiday today here in Germany and I am actually kinda maybe nursing a (tiny) hangover at the moment so what better way to spend my time than snuggling up on my couch and shop online - am I right?

I wanted to do another one of my On My Shoppinglist post like this one and this one that are really popular on my blog, but seeing as I actually just did a little shopping damage last Friday #oops and am literally adding stuff to my cart as I am typing this (killing two birds with one stone right?) I thought I would do a Currently Shopping post, pretty much a real time online shopping list haha!

I hope you can get some inspiration - let's go!

I picked up these Chelseaboots from Boohoo - they are such a great fall staple and only €30.

I also got these New Look Overknee Boots, for just over €50 they are such a steal!

Also got this Sweater Dress from Asos.

Mango always does the best coats and jackets! I got this camel coat - kind of a splurge, but I searched high and low for a coat that looks exactly like this one and did not find one! And in my opinion the quality was definitely worth it.

Just added this pair of leather leggings to my cart. Such a great price at only €19.95! Also getting this satin top - the lace detailing in the back is sooo pretty! And I am also thinking about getting this suede A-line skirt - what do you think??

And lastly I just put this NA-KD sweater into my cart - the chunky knit looks sooo good and who doesn't love to show a little shoulder??

What do you think about my current online shopping list? What is your favorite item? And most importantly - what is on YOUR shoppinglist right now? Let me know in the comments!


Thank you so much for reading and have an amazing rest of the week!

I know I keep on banging on and on about the weather in every single one of my latest posts haha but the cool weather has hit us in full force - and I am not even mad about it!
Sure, there are more pleasent things than absolutely freezing on your way to the train station in the morning because you refuse to wear anything else than your leather jacket right now (I mean, it's still SEPTEMBER after all!), but I start to really appreciate the cozy feeling you get during this time of year!

The piece is from the home section of Urban Outfitters and I already have it in my basket!


These Zara Home candles are currently on sale and they are amazing! The come in so many different scents AND look super cute as a decor piece as well.
