Summer style lookbook

SUMMER LOOKBOOK – CHIC SUMMER STYLE OUTFITS

How happy can a woman get for not having to wear jackets and sturdy shoes? Very happy, let me tell you. I’ve kissed all my warm clothes goodbye and switched them up to shorts, skirts, tops and everything that feels light and breezy.

It’s about time I really start sharing my outfits here more often, so here we go. I wanted to do a lookbook, since those are something that I love to watch from youtube. Usually they give me new ideas when it comes to the clothes I already own (and okay, I’ll admit it: they also make me want to buy new clothes). Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration from this post as well!

SUMMER OUTFIT 1 – Light nude colors

Can’t go wrong with nudes, right? Nude colors are so easy for someone who’s used to wearing black (quilty). It’s a colorful version of it, if that makes sense.

The first outfit is perfect for a date. I actually wore this for our 6-year anniversary date. This outfit is very classic and beautiful, but best of all, very comfortable. I pay attention to the fabrics of my clothes. Here the top is 90% silk and shorts are 100% cotton. I love good quality clothes.

Since I wore light nude colors, I chose a bright orange red lipstick as a pop of color.

SUMMER OUTFIT 2 – Crochet crop top

The second outfit is very girly and cute, thanks to the rosy tones and the bow detail in my hair. The star of the show, however, is a cream colored crochet crop top. It’s actually handmade by a Finnish blogger named Iines. As soon as I saw her crochet crop top collection I knew Î had to get one. I’ve been dreaming of a cute top like this for a long time!

Here I also wore the same shorts and bag than in the first outfit. I wanted to show in this lookbook, that not everything has to be new and different. It’s okay to wear the same thing more than twice!

SUMMER OUTFIT 3 – Casual

This outfit is probably closest to what I’m actually wearing day to day. Definitely not heels. This year I decided that sandals are cool and I’ve been loving these black ones. Sincerely, almost 25 year-old Charlotta, with happy feet. Besides, they go perfectly with my newest black bag.

The black silk shirt is from H&M and I was pleasantly surprised with its quality.

Amazing second hand style finds

Collaboration – Zadaa

 

I’ve become a pretty good second hand shopper. I’ve found some great items used. Nowadays I even do most of my shopping from second hand. But not from just any store, because I only use Zadaa.

It’s always a bit scary to open up the packages, but nine out of ten the item fits me like a glove and I do a little victory dance. I’ve surprised myself, actually. But it’s not just about luck. Put me in a physical second hand store and I want to run out of there as quickly as I can. Not finding anything.  But from the app?
I got this.

Second hand style –  outfit

I felt like a million bucks in this outfit, which was all second hand style (minus the pants and shoes).

I’ve been searching for a blazer, that would feel classy, but still girly, and this light pink blazer was the perfect choice with its cute ribbon sleeves. I think oversized blazers are quite trendy right now – and you can count me in on riding that trend. And probably even after, because to me style is not about fashion and trends. Besides that, I managed to find a nice cotton t-shirt and two (!) dream bags, that were practically brand new. I’m in love with the bags. The other is perfect for when I need to have half of my life with me (you know, a water bottle, camera, wallet, makeup, more makeup etc) – and the other is the perfect size for the essentials (phone, wallet, keys, a lipstick ). Oh – and I also found a new green jacket for spring.

And if you were wondering about the glasses – I was working in a cafe and I use glasses when I’m working. I need them for reading. I usually don’t take photos with them though, not sure why. I guess I feel like they don’t always go with my looks? And I’m a bit bored with them (having the same glasses for years now). But yeah, I guess I could wear them for photos every now and then. And no, I haven’t forgotten about the makeup post for glass wearers either. Actually this particular makeup look went great with my glasses.

This time I bought everything from Germany and it was just as easy as shopping from Finland. I picked up the package from my nearest post just like normal. The selection in Germany was great with lots of sport brands like Adidas etc. I know buying something a bit more expensive, like a DKNY bag, might be a bit scary, but Zadaa package comes with an insurance up to 10 000 euros.

If you haven’t installed Zadaa yet, go do it now!
