Spring Trench Coat | What I Wore

Trench coat: Sheinside  |  Top: H&M  |  Jeans: New Yorker  |  Sunglasses: H&M  |  Necklace: Avon (long ago)

Most of you probably know that I was expecting a little package I ordered from I got a few spring items, which you can see in the haul video here. I was so excited to get it, since I mainly ordered some spring clothing items, which most likely you will see in the next few outfit posts. I love everything I got and this trench coat is definitely gonna become a staple in my spring wardrobe. The colour is a pretty peachy-pink shade, it's got really cute buttons and I just love the look of a trench coat during springtime. This definitely is a thin fabric, so you wanna be wearing something like this when it's not incredibly cold outside, just chilly. I paired the trench coat with a simple, basic H&M top and my navy skinny jeans from New Yorker. For shoes, I wore the Deichmann black ankle boots, since it's still a bit cold for flats / ballet pumps. My vintage looking necklace is one I bought from Avon a long time ago, but I still love wearing it. In fact, I'm pretty sure I wore this early on in my blogging days, so you can definitely see it in older outfit ideas.

Just in case you were wondering, I'm not sponsored by Sheinside by any means, nor did I get sent these products. I have worked with them last year and really loved their clothing, so I decided to make a little purchase myself. I am actually pretty sure I'll order again from their website, they always have really fashionable and trending items.

Have you ever tried Sheinside clothing? What did you think of their products?

Current Nail Polish Picks

I'm going to use spring as an excuse for the variety of nude, pale pink, neutral nail varnish colors that I gravitate towards. But in all honesty, I go for these shades all year-round, mainly because I feel like a pale pink or pastel color on your nails always looks classic and simple, perfect for everyday wear. I do go for bolder colors every now and then, but it's not among my regular go-to nail polishes. In this post I will be sharing just my main polish picks at the moment.

First of all, my most loved ones are the Rimmel Salon Pro polish in shade "Soul Session" and the Avon Gel Finish polish in "Sheer Love". They both give a very lovely finish and last pretty well on my nails (for about 5 days until they start to chip). 

When I'm not using those two, I like to go for the Rimmel 60 Seconds "Instyle Coral", which is a really pretty bright peachy-pink shade. Perfect for spring days! Lastly, I like to use the Maybelline Colorama one, which has a bit of sparkle/glitter to it, making it last really well on your nails. The only downside to this one is that it is such a pain to take off, but other than that - lovely shade.

In case you're wondering, as I'm writing this I have on my nails the Avon Gel Finish nail polish. I am actually going to look into getting some more, because the finish of this one is really amazing. Thank you for reading!

What are your favourite nail polishes / nail colours at the moment?

Stripes & Pastels | What I Wore

Striped top: H&M  |  Skinny jeans: New Yorker  |  Blazer: similar  |  Scarf: H&M  |  Watch: New Look

In case you are new to my blog, you will probably soon learn that I am a huge fan of stripes. My striped blouses are my most worn ones, definitely, and I always feel like I could use some more, haha! :) I feel like they give that navy/nautical inspired theme to your outfit and they bring more life to it than a regular, basic tee. Since the weather has been getting *ever so slightly* warmer around here, I have started dropping off a few layers and I believe my blazers are going to be in to stay this spring. I paired this outfit with some simple skinny jeans that I got from New Yorker, which I feel like they have the perfect colour for spring (a little bit lighter than the usual ones). For shoes, I wore my black ankle boots from Deichmann, which are not pictured simply because all the photos that I took that included them turned out blurry (fail!), so I decided just not to include those. But if you'd like to see what they look like, many of my previous outfits feature them.

In the past few days, we've actually been having full on sunshine all day long, which is making me extremely happy. It's not too warm just yet, but I have finally begun running in the morning without feeling like my nose is gonna freeze. I feel like there's a whole new life once sun starts to rear its head. I am loving these days!
