So lately my style have been more on the casual side. I still love my blazers and often depend on them to jazz up an outfit, but even though it’s summer time, my skirts have stayed mostly in the closet. One very important reason to that is that the weather here in Bergen is not exactly very summer like. It’s been raining a lot, and the temperature is more fall like than summer. Therefore, jeans have been a much more comfortable option for me, and I’ve actually gotten more into denim! I’m very particular with what denim I like though, so finding a pair of jeans or shorts have been difficult. after some serious shopping I’ve finally found what I was looking for, which will probably be featured in an OOTD post soon!
Moving on, another thing I’ve been quite obsessed with is these Birkenstocks inspired sandals. I know, I know, I’m probably the last one to jump on this trend, but I certainly did not realize how comfortable these are! I’ve been wearing them non stop since I got them, and I’ve also used them quite a lot at work! Two thumbs up!
I know I’ve been MIA for a while now, and I really don’t have any excuses. Will try my best to upload a few times a week at least!
Anyways, for today’s outfit I wanted something that was casual and comfy, yet put together. Like I’m always aiming for. I’m loving skirts with thigh high socks and boots lately, mostly because I love how it looks, but also because it keeps me a lot warmer than I’d been if I was to only wear leggings. To get the casual look I went with this cream coloured sweaterdress which is supercomfy and warm! It’s a tad bit short, so I added a simple black pencil skirt underneath, simply for security. To be honest I actually like how it turned out, it added a nice detail that went very well with the socks. I love to wear some colour, and decided to add this blue blazer to keep it a little bit interesting. Lastly, I added some gold jewellery!
Waking up Monday morning never gets easier, and when all I want to do is hide beneath my warm blankets, I don’t really feel like dressing up. Honestly, I feel like wearing my warm, cozy sweats, or the warmest clothes I can find, but because I would in reality feel very uncomfortable wearing this out, I go for another option. Leggings. To me leggings are the perfect balance between comfort and style. No, I’m not saying leggings is the most stylish thing in the world, but depending on the way you style them, you can look quite put together regardless. So when I very unwillingly separated from my loyal warm blankets, this is what I reached for. I paired it with a chiffon plaid shirt which is long enough so it covers mu butt. Which is important, yes. This shirt is quite see through, so I wore a simple black tank top underneath it.
To make the outfit look a little more put together, I also wore my lovely oversized blazer. I just love how a blazer can so easily kick an outfit up a notch.
Lastly, I paired this outfit with some leather boots and my well-worn wool hat.
Btw, sorry for not the best quality pictures, it’s been very windy in Bergen lately, or more like a storm really, so it was quite difficult to get the camera to focus properly because of all the constant movement of my hair and blazer.
