30 under 50€

Well, I spend a lot of time surfing the internet to keep up with clothes that are in stores and soon to come to stores. I compiled you 30 pieces that cost less than 50€. I piled up a few summer essentials, colorful tops, dressed shirts, off shoulder tops, cropped pants and slip dresses. You might be all shocked of all the colors but this summer I’m totally hooked on orange and baby blue. I’m totally loving the batik piece, so Gucci resort 2017. Enjoy and happy shopping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dresses for every occasion

Summer means graduation, weddings, garden parties and what not. Finding an appropriate dress might not always be so easy, as you have to consider the functionality and comfort of the dress. Bodycon dresses are popular, but would you feel comfortable in a squeezing, tight polyester dress during a humid and hot summer day, and is it appropriate? Thought so too, so here are some nice alternatives.

&Other Stories has a nice selection of minimalistic dresses in nice breathing fabrics. What I like about these dresses are that they are multi functional, dress up or dress down. My favorite is the printed dress, wear it with a pair of heels for a party, and dress it down with a leather jacket and loafers.

COS might not deliver summery dresses quite yet, most dresses are in darker color tones. These two though are fun and youthful dresses, a pair of nice heels and you are ready to party!

H&M has a really strong spring collection this year. They have a lot of nice dresses, I picked these three, the yellow lace and baby blue dress are my absolute favorite. The yellow dress is also festival appropriate, wear it with a pair of Stan Smith’s or sandals, add some nice jewelry, a hat and you are good to go.

Zara always have a great selection of dresses, but it is a risk to buy graduation dresses from there, as most likely somebody from your school will have the same dress. The last three dresses are really nice, the tweed one is very Alexa Chungish. The two longer dresses are great for weddings, as they go over the knee they are appropriate for church weddings.

 

Topshop didn’t quite convince me with their dresses, but these two were nice I thought. The black one is maybe a liiittle bit too revealing for a graduation dress but totally appropriate for a night on the town, just add a nice leather jacket.

New Look offers nice dresses for a good price. The black one is not relevant as it’s not a party dress, but in my eyes the perfect everyday dress and for 20€. Off shoulder is THE trend for this summer, and there’s something about this icy blue dress that I like.

Marimekko, okay not the cheapest selection of dresses but these are soo pretty! Imagine the maxi dress with the Kivet print, flowing in the summer wind and giving enough coverage for late nights. Love these!

On Thursday the 7th of April, H&M Conscious Collection will come to stores. This year, based on the image gallery, the collection is not that strong. I do like the strong minimalistic silhouettes and the watercolor inspired prints. The collection is calm and feminine, and the piece I’m eyeing for is the white blouse with the trumpet sleeves.

Not so traditional office wear

Well, as I started my new work in February, I have been trying to make office wear a bit more fun. Most people perceive office clothes as a blouse and jacket and some kind of pants. Quite boring if you ask me. So I have been trying to personalize the “office look” to my liking and in order to show my personality through my clothing, which is very important to me. I see fashion as a fun thing, mix things up and think outside the box. What you are wearing tells quite a lot about yourself, but most importantly you really need to be comfortable in your clothes. I’m all about comfort! So here’s some outfits I compiled that I thought would be nice to wear to work;

This timeless pant suit from Banana Republic (Zalando.com) is a great piece to either dress up or dress down. I would match it with a plain white tee from Weekday and classic Old Skool Vans. If you need to dress it up, add a blouse or shirt underneath and a pair of patent leather shoes and your hair in a tight bun.

A more Parisian chic outfit for work, love this lambskin skirt from Lindex as it can be used for work or leisure time. The model is classic, short without being too short and easy to pair with a black, grey or white top, such as this black long sleeve from & Other Stores and long coat from Gina Tricot. And these shoes are everything, love the color blocking. Might have to place an order soon, also from & Other Stories. I think though that it is appropriate always to wear stockings to work.

Okay, these pants from H&M is everything. LOVE them. I bought them a month ago and I have used them since a bit too much. The grey color is perfect to pair with a light blue color, such as this shirt from Gant Rugger (the name is capri blue, ah!). Spice thing up with a pair of furry loafers from Boyy Copenhagen, which are not up everybody’s alley .

These striped pants from Banana Republic (Zalando.com) has been on my mind for a while, since they arrived to the showroom where I did my internship. The colors and fit of the pants is brilliant, and to dress them up, tuck in a nice twill denim shirt from Gant Rugger. I really like this leather jacket from Zara, even though it might not go as office wear, it goes as after work wear, hehe.

If you don’t want to dress up, but still office appropriate, a minimalist sleek look is the way to go. The dressed pants, college and t-shirt is from Weekday and shoes from Nike.

A bit more feminine look, dress from Gant Rugger, trench  and loafers from Zara and bag from Karl Lagerfeld (Zalando.com). I really like this dress a lot, such an easy garment to throw on when you have a clothing crisis.  And the bag, eye candy *heart eye emoji*.

Aaand a little trip back to the 70’s. I actually bough the suede jacket from Mango two weeks ago, can’t wait for the days to get warmer in order to use it. For a more experimental and fun office look, pair it with a striped shirt from Monki, pants from Weekday and shoes from & Other stories. Want to wear this look this spring!

The pants from H&M are so nice, had to use them twice. Here paired with a vest from H&M and t-shirt from Weekday. As you have probably noticed, bubblegum pink is THE color for autumn (Erhm Gucci AW16). Take a kick start with this lovely t-shirt, which btw looks nice with a little tan, and bring a little color to the overall grey scale in office clothing. The vest is super versatile, wear it with a white top underneath or for a more edgy look, wear it with a pair of leather pants.

Okay this might be more of a work-to-party look, haha, really liked the jumpsuit from Weekday. This silk bomber from Weekday satisfies my bomber-craving for this spring, not as masculine as the classic model. A fun bag to make the outfit more interesting, from Karl Lagerfeld (Zalando.com) and all black evil looking Birkenstocks.

Oh, another piece that I’ve been waiting for to hit the stores since the winter, this bright colored denim kimono from Lindex. Wear it with the belt or without, it is such a fun piece! Match it with a pair of blue jeans from Lindex and a pair of white Vans. This is quite casual but needed to show this kimono as it is so fab!

What do you think, is this office appropriate on a daily basis?

New in H&M Trend

      
You might remember me being awfully obsessed by a white caftan like shirt from Rodebjer last summer?! Well, this spring H&M did a more afforable version, and I had to get it. It was a blessing in disguise when it didn’t come in time for Italy, because it a) easily gets wrinkly b) not easy to iron. I’m going to pair it with leather shorts or my Levi’s jeans this summer! 

Balmain x H&M

 
I have always loved H&M’s designer collaborations, and on the basis from the leaked pictures in the social media – this collaboration will be good. I do think that as Balmain is a more upscale haute couture fashion house, these clothes will not be as affordable as e.g. the collaboration with Alexander Wang or Comme de Garçon. But I’m excited, let’s see!
