Rust Blouse & Textured Blazer | Autumn Outfit | WHAT I WORE WEDNESDAY

Happy Wednesday! Hope you're having an awesome week so far! 

We've had a pretty good week so far, even though Victor's got two teeth coming in at once, so he's had some days being a bit unhappy about that. But overall it was a nice time, it was quite chilly outside but sunny, so we enjoyed lots of autumnal walks. It's so pretty this time of year with all the leaves falling. I adore it! 

We took pictures for this outfit a week or so ago when it was still warmer outside, so these days I would probably freeze in this. I love wearing monochrome looks this season, so for this outfit I went with this grey-black monochrome feel, but I added a bit of colour with the rusty blouse. This textured blazer is one of my favourites at the moment. It's the perfect style for me as a mom I think, since it's not too structured so I don't look like I'm going to the office, but it's also a bit more put-together. Love it!

All Black Outfit for Autumn | WHAT I WORE

Happy Halloween! Hope your week is going well so far. I am currently sipping a cup of coffee while Victor takes his nap, lounging in a much less fashionable outfit - haha! :) Daylight savings messed up our schedule a bit, so I'm just going with the flow until we get back to our normal routine - hence the pjs at noon. But let's focus on a day when I did manage to put on a decent outfit.

The all black trend is quite a fun one to play around with. It sounds so simple, but the fun part is that you get to play around with different textures and fabrics, which makes the outfit look not so plain.

You probably can't tell from the pictures, but my crop top has a bit of a dotted texture to it and on top of it I threw on this tweed-like jacket from Reserved. I like how it looks kinda stripey and it's also a bit cropped. For jeans I picked these super simple ones from Stradivarius. I love a good faux suede boot in autumn, so this pair is my go-to lately. 

I went for golden accessories since I felt like they go nicely with this look. I have on a pair of hoop earrings, a long beaded necklace, a black-strap watch and a pair of sunnies that resemble the ever-so-famous Ray Ban ones (but at a much cheaper price, got them on ASOS).

An Ode to Autumn | WHAT I WORE

Happy Wednesday and welcome back to my blog! It's been a minute since I posted an outfit, so I'm excited to jump back into it with this super autumnal one. If this doesn't scream autumn, than I don't know what will - haha! A mustard sweater has been on my to-buy list for this season for a while and I finally found one that I fell in love with. This one is from Stradivarius and I like the cable knit and the fact that it's not super heavy, so you can easily wear it inside as well without getting too hot in it.

I paired it with my new pair of coated jeans which are PEERFECT for moms since these don't get stained from baby food etc. I feel like I constantly find food stains on my jeans whenever I come home from somewhere and wonder if anyone noticed that and thought "Wash your clothes once in a while, woman" - haha! :) It's ok though, since I constantly have a baby with me as an excuse. I love pairing up two different textures for a slightly different vibe: the faux leather look of the coated jeans and the cable knit - love this combo.

For shoes I went for my beloved Chelsea ankle boots which I looove and wear endlessly. I decided to go for a brown backpack (which is my current go-to). I kept the accessories quite simple and understated.

As I'm writing this, Victor is still napping and I'm gonna go enjoy another cup of coffee while I still can. This little one decided it was a fun idea to wake up at 5 am this morning, so I guess it's a "bring me all the coffee" kinda day, ha! :)

Basic Logo Tee | Summer to Fall Transitional Outfit | What I Wore

Happy Wednesday! 

Today's outfit is a really simple mom-style one. What could be more basic than jeans and a tee? It's been getting colder and colder where I live, so I'm slowly transitioning my outfits to more fall appropriate ones. I wore this one at noon, when it's still warm and you don't need boots yet. In the mornings it's definitely crisp and I couldn't get away with wearing these sandals as my toes would freeze. Haha! It will soon be time to store these away until next summer and bring on my trainers and ankle boots. Yay! 

I recently purchased a Levi's basic t-shirt because I really like the design and the fit and it was actually quite a funny one for us. I'm not sure if many of you know this, but my husband's name is Levi actually, so he thinks it's hilarious whenever I wear this now. I do like to pair it with these light wash jeans that I got from New Yorker a while back. 

For accessories I went for a pair of aviator sunglasses from Reserved, a black band watch (also from Reserved), my beloved pearl earrings and my new tan/brown backpack from Stradivarius. Quite a simple look if you ask me, but I love wearing it!

Wardrobe Clear Out for Fall | Tips & Declutter With Me

Now that autumn has rolled around, I felt like doing a deep cleanse of my wardrobe and getting rid of a bunch of things that I've had for years and hadn't worn much lately. Whilst doing that, I figured I would share with you a few tips I learned for decluttering and how the process went for me. If you're interested, there's also a video all about it on my Youtube channel. Now let's get on with cleaning our closets, shall we?!

STEP ONE: Make yourself a cup of something nice (I went for a cappuccino, surprise-surprise!) and play some Youtube vlogs or have something running in the background. It really helped me carry on with clearing out the closet and not giving up mid-way.

STEP TWO: Pull out EVERYTHING from your closet. I laid everything on my bed and it was much easier to take a good hard look at everything I owned.

STEP THREE: Take each item of clothing and think if it still fits you, if you've worn it in the past year, if you think you would ever wear it again, if you would buy it again if you saw it in a store right now (that's a good tip I read somewhere and that worked really well for me) and if it fits with your style at the moment. If the answer is no to any of these questions, get rid of it!

STEP FOUR: Put the seasonal items in a separate pile and store them away. For me, I took all the summer dresses and shorts and things I knew I would definitely not wear until next year and I stored those at the top part of my closet, so that they don't take up space in your everyday closet.

STEP FIVE: Organize by categories (sweaters, trousers, short sleeves, long sleeves etc.) and colour coordinate a bit. I find this to be super helpful when I'm trying to find something or if I just want to take a quick glance at my closet for an outfit idea for that day. 

STEP SIX: Give all the clothes you don't want anymore to charity. Other people will definitely enjoy them more than you do at the moment.

Hope you enjoyed going through the process of clearing out my closet for fall and I hope you find the motivation to do the same for yours. Now I feel like I know what pieces I'm still missing from my fall wardrobe and I have the space to add them this season. And what better reason to clear out your wardrobe than to have more room for shopping, haha! :)

Have an awesome day!

Getting Ready For Fall | What I Wore

Yay! It's September, meaning we're slowly getting into fall weather & more importantly - into fall fashion. Last week we had one day that was a bit more chilly than usual, so I jumped on the opportunity to dress a bit more fall-like. I love a good checked shirt for fall, it's a great layering piece and it's super simple to pair with jeans and a basic tank top underneath. I went for a monochrome vibe and some light wash denim. My tank top and shirt are both from H&M. I got them last year, but I saw they still have them in stores since they're probably from the basics line. The jeans are from New Yorker. For accessories I'm wearing a Reserved watch with a black band and my favourite pearl earrings. I forgot to take pictures of my shoes, but I wore some black flat shoes with this look.

30 Blog Post Ideas For Fall | Get Inspired for Autumn 2018

It's Septembeeeer!!! I couldn't be more excited for the fall season to roll around. I find that each year, as the end of August approaches, I get tired of wearing dresses over and over again. I start looking forward to layering up, bringing out the ankle booties & the cozy knits and going for walks in the chilly air in the morning. Those crisp sunny days of autumn will forever be my favourite, but I could also be a bit biased since both my birthday and my baby's birthday are in October, so that's another thing to look forward to. 

In anticipation for this time of year, I've been brainstorming a few ideas on what I could blog about this season. I came up with a bunch of ideas that I would love to write about and photograph, so I thought I would share them with you in case you're a blogger and would like some inspiration. I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to blog about all of these things, but I plan on doing as many as I can.

I would say though that this list is appropriate more for fashion/beauty/lifestyle blogs. So if you fall in that category or are just nosy to see what I'm interested in blogging about, then here it goes:
