We’re already in the last week of my 1-item-a-week challenge. Choosing an item for upcoming week is a bit difficult since it is quite warm at the moment, but it’ll be colder again once the weekend comes. But since it’s so sunny, I’ll go for my white singlet, as it just gives a feeling like summer. Also, I’m working on my tan, so hopefully I’ll soon be beautifully tanned, everything just looks better that way anyway.
But let’s first check out the outfits I wore last week:
Light blue leather jacket – Zara, Black t-shirt – here, Grey jeans – Pieces, White sweater and leather pants – H&M, White trousers – here, Black cut-out boots – Topshop, Light grey jeans – Bershka, Long striped dress – Primark
Today is Wednesday, which means another week of my challenge has past by and a new one has started. (I’ve actually wanted to write this yesterday, but my stupid exam got in the way – time management!)
Last week I’ve been trying to combine my singlet with as many different outfits as possible. You can check below what I’ve been wearing. Btw, last Thursday there was a big outdoor event I had to attend, unfortunately it rained almost the entire day. Nevertheless we’ve had a great time! But for that reason, I chose to wear a sweater instead of my singlet, also, I didn’t want my singlet to get all dirty because I had to wear it several more days. Also, I wore the singlet twice with my dark blue jeans and a jacket, but the dark blue has unfortunately died, so it is at the clothing guy at the moment.
Red singlet, H&M, Short white blazer – Bershka, Nudie jeans – A friend, Leather jacket – similar here, Black destroyed jeans – Bershka, Black jeans, here, Lilac sweater – Cheap Monday, Black blazer – similar here, Leather skirt – H&M, Long white blazer – Topshop, Leather short – H&M
This week is already the third week of my challenge, time flies! The item I’ve chosen for this week is my baby blue leather jacket. I’ve chosen for this one because it’s really spring-like and considering the weather is getting better, but isn’t totally there yet, I think it’s an excellent choice, since you can wear it for indoor as well as outdoor.
As for my second challenge, I still haven’t bought anything, SO PROUD!! So maybe I can extend it for some time. I’ll consider that before my next challenge update.
It has been a week since I’ve started my last challenge, which means it is time for an update. I must first confess, I made a very stupid mistake. Last Thursday I attended a party in Leiden, which is about 3 hours away from Groningen, so I stopped by at my mom’s place, since she lives halfway. But during that short stop I had to switch clothes and you can already guess, I’ve left my leather pants at my mom’s. (SHAME!!!) I tried to make it up to you and myself by using my leather shorts for the rest of this challenge instead of my long pants.
Also, I have forgotten to make photos of my outfit every day, so the pictures of the first part of the week have to wait some more. (Note to self: TAKE PICTURES!)
Leather shorts – H&M, Cut-out boots – Topshop, Pullover – Zara
Cowboy boots – Zara, T-shirt – H&M
T-shirt – Zara, Hat – H&M, Boots – Steve Madden
The pictures you see above are from Friday, Saturday, Sunday and yesterday at the Freedom Festival. (Yes, I wore the same outfit twice for lack of normal clothing that I’m suffering from and I made some logistical bad decisions about the clothing distribution between me and my parents)
Freedom festival is all about celebrating the freedom we have and rethinking the war which luckily for us ended 69 years ago now. But I believe it is important to still dwell on the fact that freedom isn’t self-evident.
Anyway, as for my other challenge, not shopping more than one item for 30 days, is actually going quite well! I’ve seen a lot of beautiful items, but I haven’t shopped anything yet. I do have an idea what I’m going to buy though.
And of course, my new item-for-a-week!
For this week I’ve chosen my red singlet from H&M. Because it’s elegant, but you can totally dress it up or down as you want it. Also, we have extremely changing weather here, one moment it’s warm and sunny and the other it’s raining a lot, so this top seems appropriate.
It has been a while since my first challenge has stopped and as I have just started my challenge, I’ve had some time off.
And as any other shop-loving girl would do, I took my prerogative to shop very seriously. Unfortunately, I still don’t have the budget I, and mostly my shopping desire, need, but let’s not let that spoil the fun! I, as well, would’ve loved to add a beautiful new watch to the collection today – to make up for my bad day. But as I’m having a TERRIBLY bad day (but seriously, my phone broke, I bit my lip, which made me look like a retard and I had prepared the wrong part in class), the watch was sold out, so I’ll have to wait some more for my baby.
Anyway, let’s take a look at the item I did buy in the last month.
L. Blue leather jacket – Zara, White pants – H&M
T-Shirts – Both H&M, Lingerie – Victoria’s Secret
Nike Air Max Thea – Nike
Yesterday was one of the toughest days during my challenge, because yesterday was ‘stufi-day’.
stufi stands for study finance. Yes, you’re hearing me correctly.
Each 24th of the month, i the beautiful day when I get my study finance for being such a loyal hard working student, cough.
Although I must say, I’ve been working quite hard last month (still having exams until Thursday, please save me!!!).
And even when I don’t work hard, I do. At least I feel like I do, which counts as well.
But leaving my opinion on stufi for now, it is also a very difficult moment, because now I’m actually able to buy the things I want.
All this time I thought coping with discount codes was hard, I hadn’t seen nothing yet. I don’t even know how to explain, but I’m sure many can compare already.
For the rest of it, I’m handling myself pretty well luckily, and once I survived this, I know I can do anything, so empowering!
Day 16: Jacket – Small local store, Vogue shirt – Dutch Vogue, Grey Jeans – Bershka, Sneakers – H&M
Day 17: Leather jacket – H&M, Lace top – Albufeira, Grey jeans – Pieces, Heels – Mango
And now we’re here, back at the bottom.
Strange start, I know, but trust me, this is heading somewhere. Anywhere.
Since today is day 16(ALREADY!) of my challenge, which means I’m halfway there, only 14 days left.
Time flies when you’re having fun, only I’m not having that much fun because I’m still busy with my exams, so I’ll just leave it at ‘time flies’.
Anyway, although it was going great until a couple of days ago, I’m kind of starting to panic now.
I’m not sure whether it is because I genuinely have nothing to wear anymore, or because I just want to shop when seeing the rest of the world shop. Okay, even I, in my delirium, could tell that it’s probably just the addiction kicking in, but it’s really frustrating!
You know those moments when you’ve seen so many great things, that no matter what you think of, these items will pop into your head.
For instance, I could think of a park and only seconds later I would see myself walking through that park in a beautiful new outfit.
And don’t even deny it, I know at least almost every girl has this paranormal activity going on.
So I’ll just try to ignore the little voice in my head for now and start searching for a new outfit, while I’ll show you the ones I wore the last 3 days.
Day 13: Jacket – Vero Moda, Top – H&M, Short – Vintage
Day 14: Jacket – H&M, Blouse – Zara, Jeans – Bershka, Heels – Mango
Day 15: Faux fur coat – ASOS, Cow jumper – H&M, Jeans – ASOS, Boots – Steve Madden
