3 Overknee styles

I recently bought overknee boots, which I automatically fell in love with. You can wear them many different ways, which is what I am going to show you today: 3 simple ways you can style overknee boots with!

Look #1 – Classy

This one is more chique and elegant. You just need a nice skirt, a black shirt & the boots and you are good to go! I also wore some tights since it’s quite cold & some jewellery.

Here are the details

Boots: Asos (on sale)

Top: H&M (similar) or longsleeve

Skirt: H&M

Look #2 – Comfy

Super comfy & cozy, and in my opinion just perfect for winter. A knitted dress looks really cute with overknee boots, and keeps you warm as well. Again, I wore some thin tights underneath.

Here are the details

Boots: Asos (on sale)

Knitted dress: H&M (similar)

Look #3 – Casual

This style is super easy and casual. For me, this would be perfect for a day at university. Just grab a pair of black jeans & a sweater and you’re done and didn’t have to think too much about it – very convenient for early mornings!

Here are the details

Boots: Asos (on sale)

Sweater: Zara (on sale)

Jeans: Only (also featured here)

Do you own a pair of overknee boots? If so, how do you like to style them? Let me knooow!

Fall Fashion Essentials 2017

Since I didn’t really have the time to go shopping myself yet here in Halifax, I scrolled through different online shops and found some pieces that I just have to get for this autumn. So, in today’s post I want to show you the things that I found and instantly fell in love with! I think the colors are a great fit for this season and that some of the pieces would look really good together.

Light Blue Sweater

 

As it is getting colder outside – especially here in Canada, I just need a cozy sweater to keep me warm.. And this one from H&M seems perfect for that! I love the light blue color, which will be great for winter time as well.

(If you click on the photos, it leads you to the exactly same piece in each online store.)

Statement Earrings

These earrings with faux pearls from Zara are simply beautiful. As you might know, I love big statement earrings, and especially the ones you can get at Zara at the moment look so so good. I chose these ones for this blog post because they look very chique and elegant with the pearls. Plus, they are a great match to the sweater above!

Faux Suede Trench Coat

This faux suede trench coat from Zara has a beautiful color and is great for layering, especially in autumn when it is sometimes really warm but then it gets super cold again within a few hours.

White Sneakers

You can never go wrong with white sneakers – they are a staple piece in my wardrobe! I really like these ones from H&M because they are all white, which sometimes can be hard to find in stores.

Blue Handbag

This handbag is by Matt & Nat, a company which offers bags made with organic ‚leather‘. I already have a backpack from this brand and the material feels really amazing! This handbag has the perfect size, it is not too small, but it is also not too big! Furthermore, the color is a perfect fit for all of the clothes I have showed you above.

Girlfriend Jeans

I believe, that every woman should get a pair of girlfriend jeans! There look super good on everyone I have seen so far, are comfy and there are so many ways you can style them. I want to invest in this pair of jeans from Reserved, because I love the classy touch the pearls give them with the combination of the ripped part of the jeans. You could wear a nice blouse with these to ‚edge‘ up your look, or you could pair them with a comfy sweater – there are endless possibilities!

Faux Suede Skort

This skort from Zara has a perfect color for autumn and would be perfect paired with the blue sweater above or the black blouse below. Wear them with black tights and boots, and you are ready for fall! Skorts like this one look elegant but are still convenient, because you can actually move in them.

Black Dotted Blouse

This blouse from Zara is just beautiful! The little dots and details make it extraordinary. You can match this with (nearly) all of the things above, or simply style it up with some jewellery. Underneath you could wear a bralette as the one below, then some jeans and sneakers & you are good to go!

Black Bralette

I  actually already own this exact bralette, but I wanted to put it on this list since it matches perfectly with the blouse I just showed you. This bralette by mint&berry is super comfy and looks really great – just like in the picture! I always wear it underneath see-through blouses and shirts & already have gotten many compliments on it. It is reasonably priced, so I would recommend it to anyone who looks for a bralette like this.

That’s it, those are my outfit ideas for this fall. I hope you have enjoyed this blogpost, I love creating things like this and brainstorming outfit ideas!

Love, Christine

 

Beauty Favorites

Today I want to show you two products I have discovered this past month, which are now two of my all time favourite products! Both products are also great for traveling which is why I just needed to write about them.

The first product is the Eau de Beauté Monoï Body Splash by De Bruyère. This body spray smells amazing! It has a flowery, exotic and fresh scent, which is perfect for summer time as it reminds me of Hawaii and the tropics. I just can’t get enough of this scent – it’s literally irresistible!

What I also love about it: the size! I have been looking for a small-packaged body spray for so so long! But now I have finally come across this little thing. It’s only 50ml which is perfect to take it with me when I’m on the plane.

You can’t get it on De Bruyère’s website anymore (I guess it’s a limited edition), but there are some people who sell it on sharing websites like Kleiderkreisel for much cheaper than the original price (€ 16). However, I’m really hoping they will bring it back next summer because the smell is just incredible.

The second product is the Banana Setting Powder by bellàpierre Cosmetics. I was looking for a good powder for a long time now, so when I found this I was veeery excited to try it out since I have read really good feedback about it.. So I tried it and instantly loved it! It’s perfect if you have shinier skin, like me in summer. Also, it lasts the whole day and works great as a base for highlighter.

The powder costs € 25. It is a bit on the pricier side, but it does a great job so for me it is worth the money!
