Summer is for White Dresses | What I Wore Wednesday


Happy Wednesday!

As you might have noticed, I skipped last week's post on Wednesday, mainly because I woke up on Thursday and realized that I had completely forgotten to post my What I Wore Wednesday - #mombrain. Haha! But I am back this week with another outfit and it's one of my favourites for this summer. 

I recently bought this white dress from Stradivarius and I'm loving it. It's a really lovely light fabric and I love the statement buttons it has down the front. It's a trend I've been noticing a lot lately in stores and I do like it. The dress has a bit more cleavage than I normally wear, but I do think it looks lovely actually. I paired it with some golden accessories (necklace and watch are both from H&M) and I thought it would go really nicely with this pair of nude sandals that I love, but that I don't get to wear that often. They have a block heel, so they're more comfortable than a regular heel and they have this really lovely lilac-nude shade.

White & Army Green Summer Combo | What I Wore Wednesday






Happy Wednesday!

Today's outfit is a super simple and casual one. I'm wearing an army green top from H&M and a pair of white jeans from Bershka. I really love this color combination, especially for summer. I accessorized the outfit with some golden jewelry, as I usually do. The necklace and the bracelet are both from H&M as well.

The Ultimate Feminine Red Dress | What I Wore Wednesday



Happy Wednesday! 

At the beginning of last year I bought this lovely red dress from H&M and I was so excited for warm weather to come around so that I could wear it. However, by the time the weather got nicer, I already had a bit of a pregnancy belly and I couldn't really fit in this dress comfortably. You may have already known that if you've watched this video where I announced my pregnancy. So I placed this dress in the back of my wardrobe and hoped I would fit in it the following year. Needless to say, I'm really happy to finally be able to wear this dress now.

I love the style, it's very feminine with all the ruffles and florals on it. I don't think I've ever owned a red dress actually. I also like the flowy fabric, it's really lightweight and perfect for summer. I paired the dress with some casual pale pink sandals that are also from H&M.

My Current Skincare Products



A skincare routine is one of those things that I'm not the best at keeping up with, but I'm trying to get better at it. Being a mom, a lot of the times I will just crash in bed at night without removing my makeup - which is really bad for your skin, I know. So in an effort to hold myself accountable for that and to maintain a better skincare routine at night, I decided to share with you the products that I'm currently using to keep my skin healthy and glowing. 

La Roche Posay Lip Balm
If I don't apply lip balm religiously, my lips get super dry and it gets really annoying when I'm trying to put on any type of lipstick, so this is one product that is mandatory in my skincare routine. I try to apply it every night and as frequently as I remember throughout the day. 

Bioderma Sebium Exfoliating Gel
Ok, I forgot to include this product in the picture (#mombrain), but here is what it looks like in case you're interested: LINK. I looove this product. It has glycolic acid in it, which is supposed to help a lot with cleansing your skin thoroughly. My skin feels really smooth after I use this.

La Roche Posay Effaclar H Cleansing Balm
This is a really gentle product on the face. It's quite soothing and it has a milky consistency. I use this on days when I don't want to use something too harsh, like the Bioderma exfoliating scrub.

Vichy Makeup Remover Oil
This is my favourite makeup remover I've ever tried. You basically apply it with your hands and then wash your face and - voila! - you are makeup free. I like that it doesn't irritate my eyes at all, unlike some other products I've tried. Unfortunately, I can't find this product anywhere at the moment - no drugstore or online store that I usually shop at has this product. I'm not sure if it was discontinued or something, so I'm currently on the look out for another oil for removing makeup. If you have any recommendations for that, leave me a comment.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream, Serum & Eye Gel
This range from Vichy is one of my favourites and I have actually repurchased these a few times already. The serum is amazing! I love using it at night before applying the cream or in the morning on its own, just as a hydrating base before I apply foundation. It's really light, but quite hydrating at the same time. I love it!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream
I'm currently alternating between these two eye creams, the Estee Lauder one and the Vichy Aqualia Thermal one. I like how moisturizing they both are. I'm mainly using these to prevent fine lines and to help moisturize the eye area so my concealer doesn't crease.

The Body Shop Intensely Revitalising Oil
I'm almost out of this oil, but I'm pretty sure I'll go pick it up again. I love the scent and the smooth texture that my skin has the next day after applying it. It's just lovely!



Hope you enjoyed reading a bit about my favourite skincare products at the moment. 
Have an awesome day!

Nautical Inspired Zara Top | What I Wore Wednesday



Happy Wednesday! 

Since doing a spring cleaning of my wardrobe, I've discovered a lot of clothing items that I bought around 2 years ago or last year and that I have not been able to wear last summer since I was pregnant. And while it was fun sporting a belly last summer, I am feeling really excited to be able to wear all my normal clothing again. Also, now that I'm finally (almost) back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I can fit into my regular jeans - hooray!!! Now when I open my wardrobe I feel like the world is my oyster - haha! Ok, a bit of an exaggeration, but I honestly feel like I have so many options now. Like this top that I got from Zara a while ago and that I'm finally able to wear more often. It's a bit more structured than a regular flowy summer top, but I love it. It has a nautical inspired print and I love pairing this with skinny jeans and a pair of white tennis shoes.



Top: Zara (a few years ago) | Jeans: New Yorker | Shoes: Auchan | Watch: Reserved | Bracelet: H&M

My Favourite Summer Accessories | What I Wore Wednesday


As you might have noticed, I took a little blogging break last week, but I'm getting back into it this week starting with a What I Wore Wednesday. We went to visit our parents so I had little time to write or take outfit pictures, not to mention the fact that our week-away trip kinda messed up the naptime/bedtime situation for little Victor. BUT we're back into our routine, so I'm happy to be sipping my coffee away during naptime today while I write this post. 

I thought I would switch things up for this week's fashion post and share with you a few of my favourite accessories this season. I've actually had most of these items for a year or two and still wear them a lot. 


Firstly, I love wearing golden jewelry during summer (and not only!), so I've gathered quite a bit of a collection of golden bangles, necklaces and watches that go really well with simple white tees or flowy summer dresses. I got all the jewelry items in these pictures from H&M last year (I think) and they're still holding up pretty well.

My floppy hat is also from H&M and I loooove wearing this on the beach. Granted, we haven't been to the beach yet this year, but we're planning to soon. Finally, these sandals are probably my favourite from all the sandals that I own so far (they're from Deichmann). They're very comfortable and they go really well with so many different outfits. Loving tan coloured shoes at the moment!

The Floral Print Midi Dress | What I Wore Wednesday



Dress: Reserved | Sandals: H&M | Necklace: H&M

For the past few weeks I've been admiring this dress in the Reserved shop everytime I walked past their windows and I couldn't really go in and try it on, because I had baby Victor with me. So when I finally got the chance to try it on, I fell in love with it even more and just had to get it. I think it's such a perfect summer dress. It has a subtle floral print and it's a midi length dress - but it's quite long on me, since I'm not the tallest woman. I've already worn it a lot and I only bought it maybe a week ago. It's perfect for stroller walks and it looks like I've put a lot more effort into my outfit that day than I actually did. I just throw on the dress and some cute sandals and I'm good to go!
