Fall must haves

Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you my favorite fall smoky scents & my jacket and booties wishlist. Fall or Autumn how you want to call it is my FAVORITE season of the year. I love snuggling up at home with a blanket, cozy sweaters, cozy socks and a hot chocolate or mulled wine. My favorite nighttime scents for fall ( I also wear them during the day ) are Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium, holy mosh I have gone trough enough bottles of these.. My other favorite is Thierrye Mugler’s Alien, same story.

For clothing I have made a wishlist for the perfect autumn/winter booties & jacket. This Roxy Jacket is so warm, I tried it on in the Hartbeach Surfshop in Scheveningen and I immediately knew this would be my go to winterjacket. It is a long jacket, it comes right above the knee and the inside feels like the coziest sheep.

In the winter of 2013 I found the perfect boots, I wore them so much they where totally ruined. I was searching in every store ever since bit this fall my McGregor booties are back. The inside of these boots are amazing, when there is snow you have enough grip on your shoe too. These are the high length boots which I prefer when the weather gets cold! These boots and the dark green Roxy jacket would look perfect together.

Another pair of boots that definitely will stay on my wishlist because of the enormous price tag are the Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee leather boots. With a small pricetag of 865,- Euro I have to skip on these beauties but that does not mean I can not share them with you!

What is on your winter wishlist? Let me know in the comments below. Hope you are having a nice day. With love, Irina

Five Fall Fashion Favorites

Hello everyone,

Since fall is approaching quickly I thought I would share with you my five fall fashion favorites. I just got a proper 9 to 6 job so I have to wear neat clothes everyday and look perfectly chique. I am lucky that this fall/winter trend of 2015 is very chique and neat too. Long coats, turtlenecks, not too much crazy colours and a lot of suits and long skirts are the trend of this fall 2015. The fashion of this fall is very earthy toned. Grey, white, black, dark green and brown are the colours to stock in your wardrobe.

1.Loafers
I love loafers, they are so easy to wear. Just slip in your feet and your done. You can buy them with or without a heel. You can wear your loafers under a skirt, dress or jeans, they will go with everything. Loafers are so comfortable you are good to go and ready to run to the office. I love these snake printed loafers on ASOS.

2. Suits
Suits are the fall trend of 2015. It does not matter which colour, high- or low waisted. A suit can look very sexy on women too, just find the right pair for you and a colour which suits your skintone. It is just perfect to change up your skirts and dresses with some nice pants for a while to wear to the office. This suit is perfect!

3. High waisted skirts
You can never go wrong with high waisted skirts, those extra winter pounds won’t show if you hide your belly in your skirt. Also a high waisted skirt looks very classy with some high heels and a blazer. Especially suede and button-up high waisted skirts are a must-have this fall. Take a look at this suede and button-up suede skirt.

4. All black all day everyday
If you would ask me to open my closet most you will see is black. I love black, and I also mostly wear black, all black.. I am not a dark person and I am not a Gothic but as a blond girl dark colours do look good with your hair. You can never go wrong with an all black outfit. All black looks serious and classy.

I
 love this all black outfit from Blake Lively.

5. Turtlenecks
Turtlenecks, you maybe think that is something your grandma used to wear. But turtlenecks are in. Turtlenecks makes it look like you stand up straight and they keep you warm on cold days. Choose turtleneck sweaters or shirts in standard colours so you can easily pair them with all kinds of jackets or blazers.

Enjoy fall fashion people. Have a nice day, with love Irina ♡

My week in pictures.

Hello everyone!

What a week, it was blooming hot in the Netherlands! I had an awesome week the past week and have been on the beach almost every day, or writing on my thesis! I will bring you along the past week with the pictures that I have shot for you! Most of the pictures are taken with my new phone the Sony Experia Z3 compact. Shoutout to Sony, this phone is awesome, it can go under water and has a 21 mega pixel camera.  With this phone I can make good photo’s for my blog!

On wednesday evening I hung out with friends, we ordered pizza and had a picknick at the beach. We saw the sunset, and after we chilled out at a beachclub. Just a perfect night!

 Friends

On Friday Mike and I went to a festival with lots of theathers on the festival called; De Parade in the Hague. We had a lot of fun and saw a nice show in one of the theathres called ”Love is a donut”.

Websites to wander around on

Hello everyone,

For everyone who needs a 15 minutes break during work, schoolwork or in general I have some websites on which you can wander around on and forget that you have soo much to do still.

Ofcourse we all know ASOS, but have you discovered there daily news feed on their website already? Click on this link to go to Asos daily news edit to discover all the ins and outs on fashion. You also get some ins and outs about what the celebs wear to events, the latest trends and the no-goes.

Did you always wanted that leather fringe jacket or a perfect chair and you couldn’t find it? Etsy is the place for everything and everyone. It is basically a huge marketplace, the good thing is the people or companies mostly ship worldwide. Another bonus is that most of the stuff is unique, that way you always buy something special. Just type in the search bar what you are looking for and there it is! Etsy is really everything you have ever wanted. Click here to go to the Etsy website!

For all the surfergirls out there you should take a look on the SurfGirl magazine website. It is really amazing. From information about the best festivals, travel stories, fitness to ofcourse a lot of surfstories and anything surf related! The websites hosts also a wide range of inspiring videos to watch. The magazine also has an online shop called SurfGirl Beach Boutique. Girls while on there keep an eye on your wallet!

Free people is a shop who sells bohemian clothing, but the clothes are so wavy and creamy that you instantly see yourself wearing those kaftans on a beach somewhere! I don’t really buy stuff from the website, but the website counts for me as a huge inspiration for my style.

At last I wanted to conclude with a short film from the Stradivarius website. They make such inspiring videos in order to show their collection. Make sure you check out the:

Enjoy your day everyone and make it a productive one.

With love, Irina

Outfit of the day

hello everyone,

Just a small outfit of the day post in which I wanted to show you my casual black outfit. This outfit is a relaxed one, but you can still look smart enough to go to work in this outfit. Ofcourse, the sun shines and I go for an all black outfit. Not really that smart, next time I promise I will insert an all white outfit. I spiced things up with some golden details with my staple rings and an earcuff. My shoes have some golden details on the buckle too. My dress is from Costes, the dress flows and has longer sleeves. Longer sleeves are perfect for the first sunny evenings in spring. My leather biker jacket is from Zara and my heeled booties with a peeptoe are from H&M. Enjoy Spring lovely people!
