Sometimes you just need to challenge yourself and get out of a comfort zone. For me that comfort zone was taking pictures for my blog and Instagram account as I’ve done so many times before, but I thought I would try to up my content by adding video features as well. I’ll admit that it was really hard to begin with. It isn’t easy to get it right, but I’m actually really proud of the end result. Hopefully this won’t be the last video you’ll see from me. I promise to try to make it a regular thing on the blog. Enjoy!

I know I say this every single time. Time flies by so fast and I just finished my first semester at London College of Fashion. You heard me. FIRST. I’ve decided to take another semester simply because I love it so much here. Of course I miss my family from time to time but so many things are happening here that I don’t give it to much of a thought. I am going home during Christmas though and I can’t wait to see all of my family and my beloved friends back at home.
I have been receiving a lot of messages lately asking for tips about London. I will do an in-dept guide soon or maybe a series of guides featuring the different areas.

It was sort of love at first sight when I came across this beautiful wine-burgundy colored bag at my latest online shopping trip. I do love a bit of online shopping and it can sometimes be a bit of a weakness though a have to say that I am a very organized shopper who rarely do impulse buying. I am more the type who considers everything for too long until it’s all gone. This was no exception. I saw it online and debated with myself back and forth if I should really buy it. Then I saw a girl on the tube wearing this bag (and at this point I hadn’t even seen it in real life as I couldn’t find it in any stores across London) and then I just knew I had to click it home. A massive thank you to that girl as I truly love it!

Yes another outfit that includes a black and white dotted top. I just want everything dotted at the moment. I have always loved dots (small dots, polka dots, all kinds of dots) but I haven’t really been wearing any up until now. The dots have made a great comeback at least on me (though a have seen them quite a bit on Instagram recently). This top I have been wearing without a bra (yes I have started to learn to embrace my rather small breasts and enjoyed that I can actually go braless without it being uncomfortable) and the material is so soft and nice.
Another great new discovery of mine is these jeans from BDG (Urban Outfitter’s jeans label). They are so comfortable it would be wrong of me not to mention them (and the price isn’t bad either). With their slight kick in the end they have a really flattering fit on the legs.

Exciting things are happening at the moment. I have moved to London for the next 4,5 months with my dear friend Malene to study one semester of Fashion Media & Communication at London College of Fashion. I am so bloody excited about it (and a bit nervous too to be honest). Luckily we have a good three weeks until school starts to settle in and explore the neighborhood and the rest of this lovely city. We are staying in a small studio flat in Kensington which is definitely one of my favorite areas of London but I am also determined to widen my horizon and explore new areas (I still haven’t been south of the Thames).
We shot the pictures yesterday (which were a bit gloomy but nowhere near how terrible the weather is today) in South Kensington. The blouse from Topshop I had just purchased the day before after hunting down one of the last ones in my size (it is unfortunately sold out on their website) and I’m so glad I did that. It is just such a good combination of the wrap trend, dots and pleats. It is a bit cropped but paired with black high-waisted trousers and black boots it makes your legs seem very long.

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago where it was still a bit chilly (but sunny though). Therefore I was wearing my beloved rusty red cashmere knit from J.Crew. It has saved me from many outfit crises on those days where it isn’t cold but not warm either.

I’m massively into the Gingham trend at the moment. I’m not completely sure why though… I found this pair of trousers in the back of my closet, which I bought a couple of years ago. Finally they are getting some attention as they have (almost) never been worn.
