Edwardian

Welcome!! πŸ’œ

These two outfits I recently wore, are a very very modern twist inspired by Edwardian fashion. I’ve always adored the fashion from that time period (the years were between the 1890’s to about 1914).

Lace and gloves are a delicate combination I really admire. Taking from clothing and accessories I already have, I came up with a super pink ensemble! The pink lace top and cardigan are from Amazon; the skirt is a recent purchase from Forever21.

I made the red choker myself; I simply glued a rhinestone onto the elastic red ribbon. ❀️

Onto the next outfit; the above photo is another example of a signature Edwardian blouse. I did my own take on it using a vintage brooch I own and simply pinned it onto my blouse for an instant Edwardian flair!!

Overall, I really love how they each turned out!! My creativity has been coming forth very strongly lately through fashion. Which isn’t anything new for me, but with some additions lately like wearing gloves and adding vintage brooches.

‘Til next time!!

Spring and Unicorn Appreciation

Hi peeps!!

Last weekend, I went for a nice walk with a friend of mine, where I was able to truly appreciate spring in full bloom! 🌸 I even wore my springy lace gloves, so you know I meant business…

Blink blink!

I love going for walks during spring, because my curious inner child comes out to play. I love looking at the plants, and observing the behavior of creepy crawlers I spot along the way!

SO!!! Tuesday was National Unicorn Day, I recently learned. I follow Sweet Lyfe Boba Bar on Instagram, which is a local boba shop in my city with super cute food and beverages. I saw that they were having a celebration for National Unicorn Day, so my sister and I went there for unicorn-themed treats!!!

And I got to pose in front of this super cute backdrop they had set up! πŸ’œ

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Everything was cuteness overload! It was a really fun morning. πŸ’œ

See you next time!!

Spring Green

Hi hi!!

I’ve really grown fond of pale green. πŸ’š This color makes me think so much of spring! I wore this over the weekend.

Close-up of the accessories: vintage necklace (thrift find), choker (gift from my sister), and butterfly hair clips. πŸ’š

I really really loved this outfit!! I love this shade of green because it fits into my whole pastel aesthetic.

Like my new hairbrush?! It’s a seashell!!! πŸ’œ

‘Til next time!!

Blossom

Hi y’aaaalll…

Happy Spring!!! 🌸 Where I live, it decided to be a little chilly and rainy on the first day of spring. Hmph! πŸ™„

Having said that, we’ve had some really good days in the 70’s! More of that to come, so yay. Warm weather makes me happier!

I thought I was going to wear all pastels for the spring kickoff, but I opted for a white ensemble with little red accents instead. Channeling a blossom, perhaps? Blossoms are my spring favorite, so it works!

Why is my twin taller than me?

I wore a thin lace scarf with it and I really like it. ❀️

Well, happy freaking spring to you all!! Are you happy about the season change? Sad because you have allergies? Indifferent? Missing another season? Personally I’m quite thrilled because spring is my favorite season! Min favorit Γ₯rstid, to even say it in Swedish.

My door knows best: Live life in full bloom. 🌸

I walked through farmer’s market Tuesday night – the first to launch the season! I got myself some Teazer’s Tiger Spiced Chai (sat there for awhile on my laptop, read and then people watched), then hung out with my friend at her booth at the market. I ended up with a vegan waffle by the time I left (I’m a pescetarian, but I’m getting into vegan foods…)

What about you guys? Are there certain things you find yourself doing when spring arrives? I’m outside much more and I like going for walks, and also go to the local farmer’s market. πŸ’

See you next time!!

Hello hellooooooo!!! ❀

So many fun things to share in this post! Where do I start?

First off! My wallet design arrived in the mail! I’m sooooo happy with how it turned out…oh my gosh, people!

IMG_2352

Isn’t it cute?! So, the art is by me, and I glued the little flower charms on it to add more cuteness. I’m in love!

I might, in the future, make some other wallets for my shop. For now I’m just enjoying my new wallet. πŸ™‚

Today’s outfit is a color combination I really love: pink and yellow.

I am so used to wearing flower headbands, that I wanted something new to wear in my hair. Hence, two clips across from each other, which has a nice retro touch!

I had a lot of leftover felt from my previous headband I made, so I decided to make a cute pin that looks like a faux belt buckle. Interesting, yes? I glued little charms onto it. Something fun to add to my pink skirt!

Really love this entire outfit today! It’s bright and happy, which matches the weather and my mood today. πŸ™‚

I’m going to continue trying out the whole one-hair-clip-on-each-side thing. It’s very retro and playful, which is what I’m all about! ❀

Enjoy your weekend! See ya!

 

April Showers

…better bring some amazingly pretty May flowers!!!

Hi, all! Like my umbrella today? Since I’m wearing a lavender ensemble, I thought I’d stick with the color palette and what not. πŸ˜‰

It’s an interesting rain today, that’s for sure. It’s warm outside, which is great because I’m only a fan of warm rain, but consequently, it’s rather humid. Oh well; I’ll take it!

This umbrella is pretty cool, isn’t it? I bought it at H&M sometime last year. Love the roses.

I get so caught up in flower headbands, that I sometimes neglect my simple black velvet bow headband. It’s subtle, yet still adds a cute touch!!! Also, a matching black velvet choker.

My little pin is back! I showcased it in a previous blog post, and this sassy lady is back to attack. Attack oncoming passersby with her unabashedly quirky fashion sense, that is…

I got this pin fromΒ The Tote Trove, and she sells the cutest items ever! ❀ I love this pin especially, because it’s just so cute and a nice conversation starter. The colors went well with my skirt today, so it all came together perfectly.

I know, I know…another new pair of shoes fromΒ B.A.I.T. footwear! My other matching pair is off-white, and now I have them in black. I just can’t get over the cuteness and the old fashion vibes these shoes have! ❀

IMG_2093

I thought I would include a close-up of my makeup today, which I’m totally loving! Keeping with the purple look, I used a mix of silver with purple, and black in the crease. I don’t even know where the eyeshadow palette is from because it was a Christmas gift, but it’s awesome!

So, our front door and the screen door finally got painted white! I can’t get over how much I love the new look of the house. It looks so happy and cute, and I love walking through the front door!

The fence still needs to be painted white, but that will happen soon. πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoyed reading! See ya!
