I haven’t posted one of those ‘new in’ posts in a good while, aside for some make-up goodies you saw a while ago. Since I scored some truly show-worthy items these past couple of weeks, I felt inclined to talk about them on ze blog. Don’t know about you guys, but November is kicking my ass. I am currently in Amsterdam, as you already know, and it’s been raining almost every single day which makes me reluctant to leave the house. Luckily, these items came to the rescue! You’re probably aware of my love for all navy-colored things, so I couldn’t resist picking up these two sweaters, for less than 15 euros. Both are very similar in shade of blue and made of 100% merino wool, though one is a turtleneck and the other is a v-neck and a Calvin Klein one too. Score!
While we’re on the topic of blue, I reaaally needed a new denim jacket. Ideally, I wanted a classic Levi’s vintage one. I picked up this one from Light In The Box site in size L thinking it would have an oversized fit on my petite frame. But when I tried it on, it fit perfectly on me! Can’t help but wonder what would’ve happened if I went for the one in size S, which is the size I usually wear haha! Although I wasn’t able to find the one my heart desired, my quest is not over yet. I have no regrets though; this one will be perfect as a light spring jacket and could maybe even double as a denim button-up, worn under a chunky sweater. Yum.
Another thing that I found myself reaching for everyday are simple ankle boots. I have two pairs already, but none with pointed toe. These babies filled that gap perfectly! I can already see them being my staple piece all year round.
Last but not least, what’s a girl to do with all the coziness? Snuggle up in bed with a cup of coffee and a book, of course. Or better yet, a tablet. I have been wanting one for a while now, especially for reading in bed – the struggle of my laptop being too big and my phone being too small was getting a bit too real. All my basic needs were covered by this gadget. The overall quality of this lil’ guy is pretty good, even though you would probably assume differently judging by its very affordable price. I do wish the screen was slightly better quality though, but in general I’m pleased with this choice. Having all my reading material and favorite apps in one place is a real space/ time saver!
And now if you’ll excuse me, my bed, new posts from my fav bloggers and a cup of freshly made amaretto late are waiting for me!
