blush bomber & navy velvet

I’ve been experimenting with my style a lot the past year – did you know I used to HATE wearing jeans? I was hooked on dresses and skirts and thought jeans made me look masculine, later realising I just wasn’t confident in pairing tops with bottoms, in an effortless manner. In the Fall season, the UK experiences a little roller-coaster of weather phases, once it being sunny and bearable, then extremely freezing and wet. This is one of those outfits I’d wear no matter of the weather, as it can be layered while still looking put together.

I now gravitate towards comfort on a daily basis, and was inspired to go against the typical fall colour scheme and embrace more of my favourite colours, while keeping things on the cooler side of the colour spectrum. You can easily wear this outfit throughout the seasons.

Going for a chilled-out femme-street-style vibe, I paired a feminine, strappy velvet bodysuit with a loose fitting pair of ripped jeans to contrast the top. I broke it down with a pair of black boots which tied in with a thick black belt, and rolled up my jeans to make ‘room’ for the shoes (and because I’m a short-ass).

To tone the outfit down and further add a touch of femininity (while keeping it edgy) I threw on a longline, satin blush bomber (which surprisingly keeps you quite warm!). For accessories, I went for simple is best with delicate golden hoops and a gold chain.

In contrast to my outfit, Devora wore deep fall colours – a dark based, edgy outfit with a signature purple suede boot and a strong mustard statement scarf, tieing everything together with a strong bold bloody red lip and a cool double french braided style. For accessories, she pulled through a thick fabric choker, and a warm and cosy poncho to complete the outfit. And she’s rocking it!

monochrome in fall | look of the day

I have been living in this white off shoulder top. Since downsizing my wardrobe in June, I have started to gravitate towards a capsule wardrobe goal and have been investing in basic, clean cut, earthy-toned statement items. Fall is in full bloom, but I still dig the monochrome, minimalistic wardrobe. Check out how and why I styled it the way I did in my first ‘look of the day’ post.

Falling in love with Stockholm, Sweden

Karolina finally made it to Sweden… and, I say finally, because the desire to visit struck me when I was only eight years old, after reading The Children of The Noisy Village, written by the Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren. Although I wasn’t visiting Bullerby, the village the book was based in, Stockholm has given me a taste of what the ‘hype’ surrounding Sweden is about. So, what do I think Stockholm is (partially) about?

self care date | my routine

Life can get a little overwhelming at times, whether you’re an extroverted-introvert who needs time to re-charge their batteries from over-socializing, or you forget about yourself during the most exhausting weeks of never ending work and hustle. I get you, we all need to re-charge on our own – whether it’s through practicing daily habits or taking a day off to focus on ourselves only. Here are some of my favourite ways to unwind and put myself first when I need it most!

I remember choosing Bruges over Brussels during my Interrail in 2015 – ‘there’s nothing exciting about Brussels!’, I thought… I couldn’t be more wrong about this diverse city. Are you wondering what I loved (because yes, I ended up falling in love over and over again) about it? Read on! Here are my absolute favourite things about Bruxelles.  Continue reading
