BARBIE PINK AND BABY BLUE

h&m barbie pink oversized blazer, white shirt, skinny jeans, new look suede loafers, zara baby blue bag, thomas sabo bracelet, ray ban glasses

When I found this Barbie pink blazer in the H&M store its colour was so bright and eyecatching and in an interesting contrast with the slightly oversized masculine fit that I had to try it on. I was almost sure I wouldn't like it on myself, as I usually hate how pink looks with my complexion, but this shade was such a perfect shade of pink, I had to get it. I decided to risk looking too girly and mixed two doll-like pastel colour, baby blue and this bright pink that reminds me of a Barbie car. The bag is another new piece in my closet, only it wasn't an instant buy, as I've been eyeing it for months every time I walked into Zara. I even put it on my spring wishlist. Wish fulfilled! :) 

TWIST IT!

Twisted and knotted buns, ponytails and half-updos are a quick and stylish way to make these good old hairstyles a lot less boring. Here are a couple examples for inspiration. Check out my beauty pinterest board for more.

THE TASTE OF BLOOD - ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE SOUNDTRACK

I finally watched Only Lovers Left Alive on a premiere screening through my new internship last Saturday, and I absolutely loved it. The cinematography, the characters' sarcastic wit and the bewitching music creates an incredible cinematic experience, so I can only recommend watching it. I've been listening to the soundtrack on repeat ever since, and I can't wait for the official release of it. Until then, everyone can listen to it on youtube, but I warn you, it will make you go to the movies right away.

UNIQUELY YOU CHALLENGE WITH MODCLOTH

I was contacted by ModCloth to take part in their weekly styling challenge, and as I really like the brand I gladly accepted. I created a look on Wanelo (which is a great site to create wishlists and discover what other people like), that includes this weeks featured piece, this beautiful red maxi summer dress. 
I tried to create a laidback and comfortable look, which would be perfect for a walk on the beach or a nice sunny picnic. I accessorized the red maxi dress with teal and mint pieces to create an interesting contrast of colours, and added a few gold/brown details that look sophisticated but fun at the same time, like these super-cute earrings and the gorgeous watch. 
You can find my Wanelo storyboard and the links for the items here.

Since I started the styling challenge, I've been stuck on ModCloth's webshop, browsing through all the beautiful, feminine and quirky pieces. There are so many cute dresses on there that would be great for summer parties or barbecues. I especially love this one, this one and this one. :) Make sure to check out their swimwear as well for amazing vintage-style bikinis.

MOVIE NIGHT

vintage denim jacket, thrifted topshop tee, h&m scalloped edge shorts, converse sneakers, zara mini square bag

Last week I went thrifting with my friend, Kata, and we ended up buying 2 kgs of clothes each. I've found the coolest and cheapest pieces, and I'll probably show them all to you in the next couple of weeks. This comfy striped tee was one of my finds and since it's striped, of course I had to have it. It's a basic piece and it's so easy to pair it with almost anything, so it siemed like the comfiest thing to wear to the cinema last saturday, when we went to see Divergent.
 The movie was alright, a little slow at times, and a bit too focused on the romance instead of the this huge topic about society that could have been addressed a bit more. Despite all this, it's good entertainment, Shailene Woodley is awesome, Kate Winslet finally plays the bad guy, and Theo James is a treat for the eyes.
