London holiday: Bohemia Lounge

IMG_8036The time has finally come to share my London holiday. We arrived on Thursday, took the train from the airport and then went to our hotel. We had dinner at an Italian restaurant and then we went to one of our favorite London hang-outs: the Bohemia Lounge bar. This place is bloody amazing with the best cocktails ever!

Files of New: London shopping

Sorry! So sorry! I am seriously behind on my blogging schedule but there has been so much to do! I was hoping to have all the photos from my recent London holiday but I haven’t got them all yet, and the ones I do have haven’t been organized yet. I am incredibly behind schedule, but going on vacation usually does that to me (which is one of the reasons I don’t really like going on holiday, but I’m weird.) I have a few posts planned out but they should be up and posted soon, the first one on Monday. In the mean time I thought I’d share what I bought in London:

doc martens tan tattoo short bootI’ll start with my favorite purchase: these Doc Martens tattoo print tan lace-up short boots. I had wanted to buy them when we were in Rome on our holiday but they only had them in a size UK7 and they were too big, so when we were in London I found them in a shop in a size UK6 and the fit was perfection. I have a pair of Doc Marten boots (high ones, with 21 holes, also in a size UK6) but oh boy, those are still not comfortable/worn in yet. These seem to be wearable from the get-go but that probably is due to the height or lack of (the place where the other boots are uncomfortable are where they bend on the ankle, but as these new ones don’t go that high, they are fine.)

Neutral

This outfit came together on the basis of pairing neutrals together, I wanted to wear this beige dress (I’ll edit this post on Friday to add the product photos) and thought it looked good with the brown  jacket and the studded accessories. The dress was ordered on Asos (about three years ago) and the brand is called Angel Eye London. My belt is super old and from H&M and it came with a skirt, I love this belt and wear it very often. My jacket is from Express and my shoes are Zara. The outfit is from the 20th of June, I’ve been a bit behind on blogging. I wore it to the cinema to see Jurassic World. The movie was okay, I like the actors in it so that helped. Definitely wouldn’t go see it again but was a fun night. And I ship Owen and Claire. ❤️

I’ll be posting about it on Friday probably. I have a few more belated outfit posts to show you until then… 

I Want to Fly Away

IMG_7852I wore this outfit two weeks ago to M’s nephew’s birthday party. I curled my hair for the event, because I didn’t want to have the same old hairstyle I always wear (actually, I have three that I rotate: hair down, hair in a pony tail or a side braid). I centered this outfit around the bag. It’s from Skinny Dip and it’s the ice cream clutch. Doesn’t fit much but it’s super cute anyways.

Gridded perfection

IMG_7812This is the outfit I wore to my sister’s birthday celebration, which was almost two weeks ago. It was a lovely hot day (not like now, sorry to  be complaining but summer so far has been rainy and cold) and I wore one of my favorite dresses. It’s from Oasis and you’ve seen it before (here and here). I particularly like this dress because I find it super easy to style.

Inspired by Furiosa

IMG_7600This outfit is from about two weeks ago – I have a bit of a backlog of photos going on as I haven’t been posting much lately. Sorry! I’ll hopefully be posting more these days. Anyways, M and I went to see the Mad Max film again and this is the outfit I wore.

Scenic Mountain

IMG_7569Hello everyone, sorry about being so spacy this week. To top it off, I wore some really great outfits to work this week and didn’t get a single photo, arrgh. But here’s an outfit from this past weekend, from Sunday when M and I went to his parents’ house for lunch. I wore my scenic mountain print dress, a sweater coat I bought in Vienna, my new Rome bag and these old Zara Woman leather ballerina flats with an interesting brooch detail on the front.

My kind of date

Last Friday M and I went to one of our favorite restaurants Prosecco to celebrate our monthly anniversary. I went with a more relaxed look, I haven’t been too much into heels lately. (Especially since I was almost running late.) I wore these quilted gold flats from Topshop.topshop quilted gold flat shoes

And I finally wore my new Zara dress that I bought in Rome.

zara fitted mini dressSeriously, this dress is surprisingly difficult to wear. It is super short and requires laid back styling. In the end I quite like this outfit, it’s not my favorite ever, but it was nice and I had fun wearing it, which is my biggest criteria when it comes to clothes.
