What To Wear On A Shopping Spree

What’s the most important thing about your outfit when you’re going shopping? Looking like Carrie Bradshaw is my first response; but in reality walking around in gorgeous stiletto heels is not ideal when you’re out on a shopping spree. I can’t believe I just said that but unfortunately it’s the truth. So what is an ideal shopping outfit?

  • You need to feel comfortable so that you’re able to focus on what you’re doing instead of how short your skirt is or how much your sweater itches.
  • You’ll need to wear clothes that are easy to take of in case you decide to try things out before buying them; so stretchy and loose clothes are perfect.
  • You need to be able to move around; to look closely on the lower shelves or racks you need to bend or squat and if your wearing a mini skirt or dress that’s not exactly an ideal position and tight jeans are impossible squat in if the’re not stretchy enough.
  • If your walking around in stores for hours the last thing you want is for your feet to start hurting and I can promise you that they will eventually even if you’re wearing comfortable heels.
  • Another important thing with your shoes is that they also need to be easy to take off, it’s not fun having classic sneakers that you need to tie and untie whenever your trying something out.
  • You will also need a bag that holds only the things you need, is easy to get in to and is easy to carry around (I would normally go for a cross body bag, so my fur bag isn’t ideal but it’s very light and I can wear it on my arm.)

So with all these things in mind I created this outfit with only comfortable pieces that are easy to move around in. To sum it up the best thing would be to wear a long skirt or dress that you can easily move in (you don’t even need to take it off if you’re trying out jeans or pants) and a pair of ballet flats, slip ons or slip on sneakers.

Packing for Malta: 4 Day Outfits

Like I wrote yesterday; I am still working on my outfits but some of them are almost finished. Today I thought I’d show you some day outfits and I plan to wear these lace up sandals below with all of them (unless I decide to bring another pair.)

The sandals are from Daisy Street although I bought them on Asos and I am so in love with them. I have wanted a pair of sandals like these for a long time and I regret I didn’t buy a pair sooner because so far I haven’t found a single piece they don’t look amazing with.

The first outfit is the one I’m not completely sure about because of the shorts. I do like them but because the’re so tight without stretch it’s horrible to put them back on over a wet bikini and salt covered skin. I ordered a denim skirt from Zara recently so I might bring that instead.

The second outfit is so simple and classic; a white t-shirt, black shorts (and they are super stretchy by the way..) and a belt. My amazing sandals completes the look and I am definitely wearing this.

This third outfit is one of my favorites because the color combination and the relaxed feel. Once again the sandals completes the outfit and if I had to wear one outfit everyday this would be it.

The last outfit I wasn’t so sure about at first but now I love it. I paired my lace shorts with my black bikini from H&M underneath a lace kimono. The sandals look amazing with this look as well and I’m considering to wear the kimono in the evening as well.

I hope you liked this post, if you did please follow, like and share. If you have any questions ask me in the comment section below. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new DIY!

Have a lovely day!

Packing for Malta: 4 Evening Outfits

I’m not quite finished with all the outfits I plan to wear on Malta but some of them just needs some adjustments and I’ll need to consider how much I really need. What I know for sure is that I’ll be wearing these floral sandals below in the evenings so it’s important that I can pair them with everything.

I thought I’d show you some of the outfits I’m considering to wear in the evenings and these four is only a few of the ideas that I have.

This slip dress is the only one here that I’m not completely sure that I’ll be taking with me. I do love this and it was only yesterday that I thought of wearing my lace shorts underneath (because it’s just a little bit to short.) The color also matches the floral embroidery on the shoes perfectly. But whether I bring this dress or not remains to be seen.

I have showed you this one shoulder top before and I did buy it partially because I wanted a new top for Malta. I certainly don’t regret buying it and i’m definitely taking it with me.

The midi skirt I am also planning to wear in the evening but I have decided to wear it on the plane paired with my mules and a basic cami. This will save a little space in my luggage.

This turquoise dress I have had in my closet for years and I have never worn it. I figured it might be time and I think it would be perfect to wear in the evening. If it doesn’t look to fancy I might even wear it during the day over my bikini (without the belt.)

DSC_0007 (19)

This last dress I bought specifically for Malta but I am also planning to wear it over a T-shirt to dress it down a bit during colder days (In Sweden) and that was actually the reason I began search for a dress in the first place. I found this dress on sale on Asos and I am so glad that I did. The straps were unfortunately very long and I had to fix them as well as the slit in the front which was a little to high for me but that was an easy fix.

DSC_0003 (20)DSC_0004 (18)Tomorrow I’ll show you some day outfits with my lace up flat sandals and my new bikini. If you liked this post please follow, like and share and if you have any questions just ask me in the comment section below.

Neutral Layers

Neutrals, layers; you have probably seen me do this before but I can’t help it. I think it looks amazing and combining neutrals is the only way to create a complete monochromatic look during summer (unless you’re wearing a maxi skirt or dress.)

I layered a simple skirt over my slip dress with an extra decorative panel. Finally I layered one of my favorite sweaters over it (second hand) and half tucked it in to the skirt. I paired it with my Vagabond pumps, my mini bag and gold earrings.

Today is yet another shopping day and I know I said that I was ready for Malta on Instagram but if I were to find a denim skirt that would be really great. Oh and a pair of sunglasses is always a fun thing to purchase, and a frapino of course.

Packing for Malta: New Things

I have finally started a packing list for Malta and I have few new things to take with me. I am still waiting for these sandals but other than that I have everything I need. I am planning to start putting together outfits today and also considering what beauty products to take with me.

In the pictures:

  1. My new gold iPhone case from H&M.
  2. My new bikini also from H&M
  3. My new sequin dress from Asos
  4. My new one shoulder top from Asos (and my beautiful necklace from andeliusgribbe)
  5. My new sandals from Daisy Street
  6. A chambray playsuit, a blueish grey lace cami and a turquoise dress.

DSC_0008 (17).JPGIt seems there is a theme among the things I am taking with me which is completely unintentional but it’s a really good thing. When everything you bring matches it’s so much easier to think of things to wear.

Have a lovely day!

The Trendy Fanny Pack

If you saw this DIY post you have already seen the faux fur bag I’m wearing today. The reason I made it was to wear it like I am today; around my waist. I have always loved the idea of a fanny pack because I feel like my things are more protected that way. The only problem with the fanny pack is that the most common sort is, well.. Hideous.

The trendy version of a fanny pack looks more like a clutch or cross body bag attached to a belt. I think that this version looks gorgeous and at the same time it’s just as practical (if not more) as the regular kind.

Today I paired my faux fur fanny pack (attached to a wide black belt) with a white classic denim skirt, an off the shoulder blouse in a lovely grey shade. Because it’s not to warm outside I added ankle boots. I also added a classic choker, my Thomas Sabo bracelet (with my new charm on it that my sister gave me on my graduation) and my gorgeous bracelet from Edblad (another graduation gift.)

Today the plan is to head to the mall with a friend, I need new shorts for Malta and I’m also picking up a skirt that I ordered (also for Malta). I’ll probably end up buying a frapino as well… The problem is what flavor I should choose…

Comfortable & Chic

An easy way to look chic while wearing comfortable clothes is to grab your current favorite jeans, a top (preferably with some interesting detail) and a pair of comfortable yet elegant and pretty shoes. This makes for a very interesting mix of styles that always seems to work. Add some jewelry that you love (and make sure those are also comfortable to wear) and you’re ready to go.

This look has endless variations and it works throughout the year. Just pair it with a sweater and elegant boots during fall and winter and during summer you can wear shorts instead of jeans.

I know to some people this look is pretty obvious and because of this it’s easy to underestimate the beauty in such a simple look. I love simple things and sometimes that’s what makes a piece interesting. With well fitted pieces with carefully placed details you can create the most amazing outfits. If you love these sort of pieces you should check out Storets; they have the most beautiful things and although I haven’t bought anything yet I still love to look and get inspired. Looking at this site is like being in an art gallery where every piece is special.
