Haul – 2017 Summer Sale

This sale season was not as successful as what I am generally used to, but that means that I actually saved money, so that must be a plus. I always give myself a budget and I used less than half of it, a new record for me.

I ended up, as per usual, going on a shopping trip to Rome. It was tiring as hell, but I am content with what I bought. Let’s start (every item I could find online will be linked in the titles).

1. Bershka – Red A-line dress

As soon as I saw this dress I fell in love. I find it to be very romantic and flirty. The skirt does not get too high, even if it is windy. I have been looking for a cute red dress for quite a long while, so I was pretty ecstatic when I saw this. This item was not on sale and I got it for €15,99.

2. Bershka – White Pants

Again, an item that was not on sale. I find these pants to be very elegant and a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. They are a statement piece and not something you see very often. I got them for €17,99.

3. Bershka – White Bralette

Unfortunately, I could not find this bralette online. It is very lovely, with lace detailing and slightly see through silk. I am still not sure wether I would wear this on its own or under a very low cut dress or shirt. We will have to wait and see.

4. Bershka – Black Bralette

Now, this bralette I definitely will not wear on its own, as it is very see through and cannot be exchanged for a top. I think I will wear it underneath a couple of dresses I have, black of course, and even a couple of dress shirts. It was on sale and I got it for €6,99.

5. Nuna Lie – Floral Dress

I already talked about this dress in this post and I am very sorry I could not find it online. It it very beautiful and I wish you would look at the pictures on that post to see how it fits.

6. Artlove Paris – Floral dress

I bought this dress for €50 from a boutique in my town and despite looking for the brand online I could not find this item. I suppose it is an indie brand and therefore harder to find online. Anyways, I love it. It has a very deep neckline and slits on both sides. I wore it to Rome on a Saturday and it was magical.

7. WYCON – Magnetic Palette Large

I have been eyeing this sort of diy palette for some time and I decided to finally buy it. It is the sort of palette that you create yourself. I bought it for €6,90 and it was not on sale.

8. WYCON – Refills

Of course, I wanted to start forming my palette with some nice colours and I picked three. First, shade 01 white matte, which was unintentional, as I wanted another one. Secondly, shade 40 marsala, which is a very unique yet popular shade that I have wanted for a while. Lastly, I got a metallic colour, shade 70 tortora satin, very intense. I have yet to use all of these colours, but I swatched them and they look great.

9. Etsy – Simply Notebooks planner

I decided to invest in a very good planner, since I am starting university in September and I want to be as organised as possible, therefore being as productive as I can. I ordered a very pretty hard cover planner, which apparently is not available anymore on the easy store, but the shop offers many other soft cover planners, here. Mine was an investment, since the planner cost €35 and shipping from Estonia to Italy was €10, for a total of €45. Unfortunately, my planner has not even shipped yet so I cannot show you how great it looks, but I plan on doing an organisation/planning post sooner or later.

Thank you once again for reading.

Look of the Day – July 9, 2017

I am back in the swing of things with this amazing impromptu photoshoot that my friend partook in; you can find her on Instagram here. Later in the evening we went to the pool where there were some salsa and bachata classes, so I felt like this dress was necessary. I bought it on sale from a store called Nuna Lie, but I am unable to find this particular dress on their site.

I have never been one for colour, but I want this summer to be full of flowy dresses, both floral and not. Being able to feel the air and wind is phenomenal. Also, the colour scheme on this dress is lovely, with pinks and dusty pastels.

I also decided to do something different with my makeup. I do not normally use colours, but since I have a couple of palettes I wanted to give it a try. I used the “En Taupe” palette by Zoeva, mainly the purple and lilac shades.

And to top everything off, here we have a moment where I do not have my resting bitch face on. Surprise. That might be because I am happy as of late.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you so much for reading.
