NEW IN | NEW BALANCE 574

and I'm back with a pair of New Balance ! it's nice to finally call them mine as I've been wanting to get my hands on a pair for a while. my 574s are ridiculously comfy even though a size too big, I can't wait until the weather gets a bit better so I can wear them outside and not on my bed ... oh well.

STOCKHOLM GETAWAY

last week me and my friends went on a short trip to Stockholm for my birthday. mostly because the overnight ferry meant we could party for two nights in a row but also because it was a nice excuse to get away for a little while.
although a bit hungover, we managed to not only explore the Old Town (Gamla stan) and admire all the Christmas lights and decorations but also do some shopping since it was Black Friday when we arrived. as always, I really enjoyed Stockholm and can't wait to come back so here are some snaps of my time there.

NEW IN | NIKE ROSHE RUN

say hello to my new babies ! it proved to be quite a challenge to find a shop that both had my size and offered shipping to my country but after a few days of scouring the web these babies are now mine. I'm a very happy girl indeed.

THE DRAW

these pictures were taken in the beginning of November when it wasn't freezing cold and I didn't have to wear 6 sweaters to stay warm. fast forward to the end of November and it's dark and gloomy just in time for my 19th birthday. on Thursday I'll be raising a glass of champagne with my friends to celebrate but today I'm thinking that I'd gladly stay 18 forever.

CHANGE IN PRESSURE

three months into university and I've learned that if you're even slightly dressed up, everyone will be looking at you as if you've grown three heads. thanks to peer pressure and judgemental stares, I've been forced to incorporate typical student OOTDs (such as jeans + t-shirt + tears) into my wardrobe but I'll jump on any chance I get to actually put a bit of effort into my appearance.

YOU SHOULD KNOW WHERE I'M COMING FROM

trying to avoid thinking about winter by wearing skirts and short sleeves. shirt tied around the waist is my favourite trend of all trends ever to exist plus it looks like I've stolen the shirt from my boyfriend .. which I don't have ... but it's nice to imagine. 
and don't worry, I did have a coat with me, I'm not insane.

TROPICAL DREAMING


from time to time I catch myself dreaming of sun and lazy days. I'm not feeling this cold and gloomy autumn weather so with these quick snaps from my instagram @elzabeatrise I'm channeling the much wanted tropical vibes.

THE CITY

how typical of autumn - its weather is the equivalent of a teenage girl's mood swings. it's sunshine one second and rain the next, and to be honest it's making my life quite hard. even though I've implemented the task of checking the weather forecast every morning in my daily routine, choosing a weather appropriate outfit is still a struggle I have to face every day.

THE LOWDOWN

can't believe we're into the second month of autumn already and I still haven't found my rhythm. balancing university, social life, sleeping until 12pm, going out twice a week and blogging is harder than I thought. so for the time being, some snaps from my instagram @elzabeatrise will do.

HOLD THE LINE

the coat season is upon us and for the time being I am quite content. I reckon my contentedness will diminish by the time it's December when I'm freezing my butt off and contemplating whether to bring out my hardcore winter jacket and forget about the fashion aspect or not.

DETAILS | EVERYDAY NECESSITIES

some things are just more necessary than others. for me, those things are gold accessories and lipstick. current favourites - gold chain from Zara, watch from Michael Kors and lipstick Mac Myth.

STILL GOING

my quarter-life crisis has started at the wonderful age of eighteen .. way too soon if you ask me. dealing with it is too mainstream, so I've turned to my favourite pastime activity that always seems to soothe my soul - shopping. this September is very black and very leather, and my wallet isn't happy.

THE END OF THE ROAD

with summer coming to an end and the weather getting colder, I can retreat to my favourite combination - bare legs and a sweater. such a comfy outfit for running errands and casual outings. and have I mentioned that I freaking love Zara ??

SOME ZARA LOVIN

reckless abandon is all I can say about my blog right now .. in my defence, this summer has been a non-stop party and the weather has been fantastic, thus leaving me with no time to blog but no worries - I always have time for changing room selfies !!




I'm very much looking forward to the new autumn/winter season as I hate summer dressing - and the new Zara collection is ridiculously amazing ! it's 30 degrees out and I'm looking for autumn wardrobe staples but oh well .. it is what it is.

PARIS

I've already done a post on my recent visit to Amsterdam but I think I failed to mention that my trip didn't end there. after 3 lovely days in Amsterdam we took a train to Paris - and in just over 3 hours we arrived at Gare du Nord, ready to experience the lovely French capital.

INSTAGRAM



just wanted to put it out there that I have an Instagram and I do quite like to use it. it's all your typical girly things that my guy friends hate but I have the feeling that some of you might like it. if anyone's interested, I've posted the link below.

NEW IN | NUDE HEELS

I jump on the first chance to buy new shoes, that is the truth. I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't find enough space for all her shoes at home. but no girl can have enough shoes, right ?
with these Aldo heels, I saw the chance and took it. they're the perfect height, colour and are (kind of) comfortable ! if there is a shoe lottery, I've won it.

AMSTERDAM

I had the absolute pleasure to enjoy Amsterdam for 3 days with my best friend back in June. we had booked this trip ages ago and when it finally came, I couldn't be more excited. I wouldn't want to bore you with all the tiny details, but I just want to put it out there that Amsterdam is a wonderful city - vibrant and very laid back at the same time. 






a few tips for anyone who's planning on visiting Amsterdam - check out the red light district, it's an experience. definitely rent a bike and go exploring, just know that the bike traffic in Amsterdam is mad and make sure you're not wearing the Zara skort like I was because it is hella short, therefore too inappropriate for cycling. expect that people working at KFC will say "see you tomorrow" after taking your order. take a walk during the night, the countless canals look amazing and pictures won't do them any justice. and most importantly - enjoy your time there because Amsterdam is a city worth visiting.

I've posted more pictures from Amsterdam over on instagram because I'm extremely lazy when it comes to using my camera and I apologize for that .. my laziness can get overpowering at times.

NEW IN | HERE WE GO AGAIN

hands down, Converse sneakers are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever come across. they are easy to wear, and are kind of appropriate for almost all casual outings which is why I decided to repurchase them.

I'm not really one of those people who repurchase things, I tend to look for new alternatives rather than going back to old classics but this time I thought "oh, why the hell not ?!". in my defence, the upcoming festival season and summer trips mean that it was a needed purchase and not an impulse buy .. or at least that's what I tell myself to sleep at night.

DETAILS | THE TROPICS

with the summer slowly but surely creeping upon us, I've made a conscious decision to bring more colours into my life. starting with minor details obviously .. because I still think black and white are the only colours I need.

BARCELONA CITY

thought I would start off my blogging adventures with some pictures from my recent trip to Barcelona. unfortunately there's not much to show off when it comes to my "typical tourist" outfits, just my beloved monochrome casuality with a leather jacket thrown over - although that's what you get when you visit Barcelona in April.
