Start Me Up


New week new adventures, right? But before that I have to take a moment here to show my look from this weekend. I had an amazing saturday and sunday spent with my love and two of our best friends that came to visit us. It was a weekend filled with some good quality time and I didn't know how much I needed that. Now I'm rested and even more inspired for this fall that's ahead of us. My choice of clothing for this weekend was put together by some new goodies that I got while spending a few days in Stockholm with my dear Mama. The sunglasses are from a chain of Second Hand stores called Beyond Retro that you can find here and there in Stockholm. Second Hand clothing can sometimes be a little expensive, in my opinion, in our Capital but you usually can find a lot of trendy and nice pieces. Beyond Retro are one of my favorite places and these sunglasses seemed to be from their own collection since you could buy a few of the same model. The Rolling Stones shirt I bought from a T-shirt store that I'm beginning to love more and more and I decided to cut it off at the waist to match it with my new Vinyl pants from Gina Tricot. It's been hard for me to shop for Vinyl Pants because of my body type but I finally found these babies at a Gina Tricot sale this spring. My favorite part about this look is definitely the back print on the t-shirt ( I LOVE back prints) and the red from the sunglasses matching the T-shirt. Scroll down to see all the pictures and details. 
I LOVE back prints and this Rolling Stones shirt had a perfect one. 
Sunny side up. Front of this look, the red details are my favorite.

Ready to go out and about in the rain.
To keep warm in the rain I covered up with dad's old 90's Leather Jacket that he let me have. 
It is easy to forget that the fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to the climate change. Being a fashion nerd I think it's important to try to remember that every now and then when you are going to shop. Second Hand shopping is something I enjoy very much because you never know what you might find and usually what you find can be pretty unique and not be in everyones closet at the moment. So in my opinion the best part of Second Hand is that It's much better for the envirement since you are not contributing to something being made again in a factory, good excuse for somebody that wants a reason to shop! It's much cheaper too! I found the top below at a local Second Hand shop! It lookes brand new and I love the details of the top! I want to wear it with a 90's feel so I wore it to my jeans and belt the other day. What's your recent Second Hand purchase?

When I went back to America this May, I had a lot of wishes about what I wanted to see and do. And among the stores I wanted to go back to was American Eagle. This chain of stores are one of my favorites in America, probably because it was one of the stores my friends and I would visit most regulary when I was an Exchange Student there, so it holds a lot of sentimental value to me. During a shopping trip with my friends in Kentucky I was able to go back to the store and that's when I bought this set. It's a floral set that was sold seperatly and unfortunatly I can not find it on their webpage, however they have some similar options up right now. You tie the top in the front and it has cute ruffles around the edges of the waist and sleeves. The pants are made out of the same light cotton fabric and also ties in the front. Simply and most important; COMFY, summer look. What do you think of this floral set? Any of my American readers who also own this floral set? 
My floral top and pants from American Eagle. 
The top ties in the front and so does the pants. 
Happy and comfy.
Close up on the top!
Love this pattern, and I can't wait until I get to go back to my beloved American Eagle.
