Style inspiration: Eleanor Calder


Through the years, Eleanor's style has changed a lot. I've always loved the way she dresses but now that she's been killing it by wearing more fashion trends (over the knee boots, fedoras, etc). She easily made her way in my top ten style inspiration! I much prefer her grungier look - not that she ever looked bad, lol -than her preppy/classic look back in the days whenshe started dating 1D member, Louis Tomlinson. Recently she's started posting a lot more on instagram and my heart can't handle her perfection, haha.

Top 5 street style: March


Gigi Hadid killed it during fashion week this season. She always has great outfits and never disapoints. Plus, she looked fab on the catwalks. I love this effortless lookwith the leather overalls  and white tee. It's simple yet interesting.


I am so happy we got lots of new pictures of Eleanor! I love her style and recently she been wearing lots of pieces I was dying to see her wear (over the knee boots, leather pants..). In this outfit, I adore the contrast of leather pants with the camel, suede jacket. 


Sometimes I'm a little iffy about Kylie's outfits but this one is beyond perfect. I love that it's easy to recreate with simple, less expensive pieces you might already have in your closet. Also, the color palette is just like what I own, haha. 



This outfit of Gigi is very simple but simple is great, right? I love simple outfits because they're easy to recreate. I've been really into denim, bomber jackets and mirrored sunnies this past month which happen to be exactly what the blonde model is wearing as she wanders in NYC.

Again, Miss Jenner did great with this outfit. I love her wearing over the knee boots, they're one of my favourite trend at the moment. Paired with a bodycon black dress and a long, fur waistcoat is a perfect mix in my opinion. I love this lenght&color combo.

Favourite trends for Spring/Summer

blog!

Now that February is over, stores has started displaying their new line for the upcoming season. After seeing all -almost all - shows during SS15 fashion week last September, I've made my mind on the pieces I want to get and new trends I want to try. These are the ones I'll definetly be sporting a lot this coming spring/summer season!

I was surprised to see the come back of over the knee boots this season, we usually sees them only for the colder months. Denim has made an apearence in my warderobe already and so did high neck tops. I already have a few of these items already in my closet - I bought them during last season's sales - and I am very excited to wear them. I am loving the military trend which, just like the over the knee boots, is usually an Autumn/Winter trend.

Style inspiration: Kylie Jenner



I've never been a fan of the Kardashian/Jenner empire that's trending at the moment but to me, Kylie makes the exception. I love her style and how she evolved during the last year. Also, her makeup and hair are gorgeous. She can rocks everything and any style and that's what I like the most about her. One day she car wear a band tee with jeans and the other a crop top with a feminine pencil skirt.

February (and January) favorites

Beauty

Dark circle eraser brightener by Maybelline This concealer was my firnst time trying a pink concealer. I was always scared to buy one, in case it'd look funny on me becuase it's pink and not flesh tone. Surprisingly, I love this brightener. I have a pale complexion (dark circles looks darker on pale skin and are harder to cover) so finding fair but covering concealer concealer at the drugstore is tricky. 

Fit me concealer by Maybelline Before trying the dark circle eraser, I bought the fit me one. After hearing tons of great stuff about it, I decided to buy it as it was on sale and I was out of my Rimmel' wake me up one. It's a really great concealer and in my opinion is one of the best I've ever tried.

Fit me foundation by Maybelline + protecting light moisturizer by Simple After using BB creams for over a year, I found it dificult to go back to a regular foundation. I now take good care of my skin and doesn't feel the need to aply so much product on my face. Instead, I tried mixing it with my daily moisturizer and loved it imediatly. Surprisingly, I find this combo more covering than the foundation on it's own.. it's weird because it's sheered out.

Voluminous mascara by L'Oréal My miss manga mascara dried out this month and became impossible and disgusting to use. I had been eyeing this one for a couple months now and finally got around to buy it since there was no other interesting offers (I only buy drugstore makeup on sale). I had heard great reviews about it and it truly is great. I love it! I'd prefer a waterproof version but there was none available where I bought it..


Fashion

Thigh high boots I've been on the hunt for a pair of thigh high boots for ages and still can't find any that fits me and that I like. With my height, it's a little bit tricky to find a pair that won't look odd on me - why am I not taller? My favourites are the highland boots by Stuart Weitzman or the Celine ones: both on the expensive side.

Mirrored sunnies After seeing them all of the street style during fashin week, I became obsessed with them. These definetly make a statement and will be all over for the next season and festivals.

Saint Laurent boots I've been lusting over Saint Laurent since forever but this month, it's been on their boots. (I blame you Harry Styles!)

Denim I've never been a fan of denim anything (jeans, skirt or jacket) but this month I've surprised myself and bought a denim shirt. I've worn it almost every single day - I washed it, of course. It goes with everything. Not regretting this purchase at all.


Random

Blood ties I used to watchign this show a couple years ago when it first came out but forgot about it. I watched the first season again in January and fell back in love with it

Vampire diaries No, I didn't just discover that show - I'm not living under a rock, lol. I've always been a fan of TVD even before the tv show came out (I read the books). When it did, I bought the first season on dvd but kinda forgot about it. I kept telling myself 'I'll watch it later' but never came around to do it - typical me - till last month.

American horror story Here it is, my latest obsession. It didn't took me long to fall in love with this series. I love that each season has a completely diferent storyline so if you didn't like a particular on, you have others options to watch. I was also sad to hear there might not be a fifth season..

Switched at birth I was never a fan of this show before but I recently started watching it with my mum. Well, she forced me to watch it with her once and I loved it. Now, I'm obsessed and watched the entire show from season one to early four.. Oops!

Gossip girl I remember watching this show during my teenage years. I watched it religiously and never missed an episode. I love everything about this show: the characters, the city, their twisted minds and fashion. My favourite character is Blair Wadorf (her and Chuck are my OTP for this show) along with Jenny Humphrey. I can relate to both of them.

Fifty shader darker by E. L. James I've read this book before but since the movie (50 Shades of Grey) was coming out, I decided to fall back into the series and re-read it.

Fifty shades of Grey:the movie Despite all the bad critiques I've seen on the web and other medias, I've enjoyed watching this movie (but not as much as I liked the book). When I first saw the actor choices I wasn't sure. After seeing the movie, though, Dakota (who plays Anastasia) is definetly a great choice. She is hilarious in this movie. I was a little disapointed in some scenes but it was overall a great movie.

Sketching Drawing is something I love doing even if most of my drawings ends up in the trash, lol. I am very picky and perfectionist - if I don't like something, I'll get rid of it. This month, I've bought myself a few new sketching suplies and been drawing lots.



People

Gigi Hadid This month, I've been obsessed with the young model. Her killer street style fashion has made me apreciate and slowly incorporate denim into my closet. This month, Miss Hadid was named the new face of Maybelline. I can't wait to see her pretty face on new makeup adds.
