This Autumn, I’m really trying to make an effort with the way I accessorise my outfits. After all, they can take any outfit to the next level, right? Give me a beautiful Danish design watch and a simple turtle neck shirt and we have an elegant vibe going on. I’ve recently came across this sustainable Danish brand which crafts delicate time pieces that go really well with the colour palette of this season and layered outfits. Let’s have a look at their story & giving back program and how I’ve styled one of their beautiful watches. 

Nordgreen’s story – Danish Design Watch

To me, the story behind the brand is equally important and interesting. In my view, a brand is sustainable not only because it uses friendly materials, but also because it treats employees fairly. Also, when it comes to Nordgreen, the well-being of their employees is at their core as they make efforts to ensure everyone involved in the brand works in a fair environment. 

Sustainable materials

What I really like about Nordgreen is that they choose sustainable and environmentally friendly materials that last. For instance, the packaging is made out of FSC-certified cardboard and up-cycled felt. Also, all straps are produced with environmentally friendly methods to reduce chemical pollutions. 

Gold watch

My golden mesh is very high quality and goes perfectly with my nude outfit. It really stands out and I feel that I don’t even need to be wearing different accessories to make my outfit stand out. If you love the look of this, I have a 15% off discount code for you that you can use on the entire website: MISS.

Giving back programme 

Besides, their sustainable practices, Nordgreen are engaged in an impressive giving back programme. Furthermore, they support three great causes with each watch purchased by customers. You can choose one of the three causes: Health, Education and Rainforest Preservation and Nordgreen make sure the fund is used for tangible projects through their partnered NGOs. How interesting is that? Thus, you’re not only wearing a stylish time piece, but you are also supporting a cause. They have all my respect for that. 

Styling the Infinity time-piece – Danish Design Watch

I went for the Infinity time piece – sized 32 mm. Also, it’s the first watch I ever buy that doesn’t need adjustment – not that I bothered in the past to be fair. Moreover, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this Danish Design Watch fits me so well. It’s my favourite to wear at the moment and I’m sure it will stay that way. You can now enjoy 15% off the entire website by using my code: MISS.

Let’s have a look at my quick tips on styling it, shall we?

Styling the time piece is very easy actually. Think about wearing a mono-chrome outfit – it will make the whole look so elegant. For instance, I chose to wear a nude outfit – a simple turtle neck paired with a pair of bold shorts. In regards to the shoes, I chose a pair of nude over the knee boots to make the look more interesting. 

Growing up, I realised that it’s so important to adhere to a minimalist style because everything looks just so much better. I’m very glad to have found a brand like Nordgreen that understands that and design minimalist pieces for women just like myself.

I hope you’ve enjoyed their story and that you’re going to love my discount code: MISS to enjoy 15% off the entire website.

Heya,

Hold back the layering for now! We can still play around with our summer wardrobe, although I know, one fresh ‘autumn full of clothes’ closet is waiting for you. Well, let it wait a little bit more, because today we’re looking at adapting your summer style to early autumn.

Adapting your summer wardrobe

Let’s talk about what you can actually keep from your summer wardrobe.  My one and only rule: if you’re not feeling cold while wearing it, it’s acceptable to wear in fall. I am usually cold in sheer tops in early September, but I’ve seen other women feeling comfortable in them. It’s all in how you feel. In my case, I will keep blouses that have fabrics that will keep me a bit warm, to avoid wearing other layers. And with all the heat we’ve got in summer, I feel like I can face the weather challenges of September without embracing the onion style since the beginning. Ah, and your sunglasses are still a must!

Next… transform it?

It might be just me, but statement jewellery goes amazingly well with autumn outfits. I’m not wearing a lot of big jewels in summer because it’s way too hot sometimes. Autumn outfits can get a bit similar but I always save them by wearing a nice piece like this one below. Pretty cool, right? You will notice that by the jewellery you’re adding, the outfits will completely change.

Make-up for Autumn

A hint of dark blush, a bit of highlight and most importantly dark lips = my secret recipe for autumn make-up. I even gave up my eye wing for it. Can you believe this? You can even choose nudes and a peachy make-up!

Besides wearing the boyfriend ripped jeans, I don’t wear blue jeans anymore. I opt for black skinny jeans over them at any time and I like to get new ones for the new season, so they look fresh and ready to go. One suggestion that I have is try to buy them in the summer sale – they are way cheaper and you only need them one month later.

TIP

Keep your colours fun – one of the highlights of Autumn Fashion from AW18 is that bold colours are back on trend. I will make a post on that soon 🙂

Thank you for very much for reading! Hope it was fun to explore transition outfits from summer to fall, together!

Love,

 Autumnal / Halloween Haul

Happy Sunday everyone,

It’s THAT time of the year when we start to get excited about the leaves getting brown and the weather getting colder. Although, I have to say, London is so warm for almost the end of October and I can’t really complain because I’m not a freezing cold lover (maybe in a parallel universe someone loves super cold weather, but I personally don’t know anyone that does here haha).

I personally love to get festive and decorate my house according to the season. I feel that this year I actually made more in that sense for Autumn than ever before. Ah and this reminds me – I didn’t try the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte yet (so late to the party, girl!). Anyways, I picked different autumn scented candles, glitter pumpkins, real pumpkins, creepy chocolates and many other exciting stuff that I can’t wait to show you. Let’s get into it, shall we?

I made almost all my Halloween shopping in ASDA because I feel they have an awesome collection every year (I started to say awesome so much by the way). So we switched from the usual online groceries shopping and we hit the actual store last Friday night.

Glitter Pumpkins

They came in a set of three and they’re super cute! If you want to give a girly autumnal aspect to your bedroom, these cuties will perfectly suit you. Well, I love glitter and gold – imagine the excitement when I saw them on the website. I would highly recommend to check the website first because the Halloween section in store was kind of unorganised (everything was thrown in wrong aisles.. I mean I get shoppers’ excitement but they should be conscious about their actions! – OK, that sounded so serious).

Aren’t they the best?

Baileys Pumpkin Spice

Woo Baileys you are beyond AMAZING! Basically, this limited edition tastes like cinnamon and spiced chai blended with the original Irish cream. I love it when limited edition drinks are really different from the original. I was actually surprised by the perfect blend and how crazy good this tastes (not that I don’t love the original too). It’s that one drink that you HAVE to try this season – it will lift your mood and perfectly get you into the Autumn feeling. Enjoy the strong spices on the rocks (2 ice cubes will do) and embrace the season!

Little Yankee Candles

I love having little candles because I get bored so easily of scents (Mercy, my best friend will agree with me on this). If you’re like me, you’ll understand. My picks for this season:

Japanese Maple and Iced Almond Cookies

Yankee Candle Autumn

The first one smells subtle which is not bad in general, but I prefer a stronger scent to my candles.  It’s a good one for the season, but I am still looking for the perfect one – Any suggestions please?

The second one smells like my mum’s Christmas cookies – yum yum yum!

Halloween Cupcakes

They look so sooo lovely! I saw these on the shelf and thought they will go so well for the Halloween pre-party. You can see in the picture the pumpkin we carved – it’s super scary at night!

Now, I will pour a glass of Baileys, light a Yankee candle and snuggle in bed with my fashion magazines while you browse your items for Halloween.

Happy Halloween my lovelies,
