New accessories...

Two accessories... one for me and one for my iPod! Since a phone is in sight all day, every day, I better get myself a pretty cover to protect it. And it also makes me less annoyed with this phone - I have nearly no reception or internet with it and don't know what the problem is... aaargh! Stopping by Hi (my provider) tomorrow and hope they'll fix it.

What suits me

A little sneak preview... This midnight purple boyfriend blazer was a recent addition to my closet, and I bumped in to the matching tapered pants yesterday. I've never owned a two piece before, and although I probably like the items best individually it's kind of cool to have the option.

Sale season: round two

Like I said, I love combing through online shops when I have the time, especially during sale season. Nothing (in the shopping world) beats seeing an item you've been craving for, for half the price. Because I find it hard to contain myself during sale, I make wishlists and then pick favorites from that. Last week I shared my favorites from My wardrobe, this time I'm turning to ASOS, where sales have now also gone up to 50%. Which suddenly makes things very affordable - all four of these accessories are under €33 - something I think we all love. 

ps. Good news: Asos has free world wide delivery! (Not until June, which I misread, but continuously :D)  

What are you looking at?

Sass & Bidezip dress
Muubaa suede biker jacket
ASOScollection striped jumper
Gestuz asymetric dress
ASOS collection red minimal dress
Style stalker snake print blouse

Asos collection rose gold watch

Outfit: In the city

This nude/cream caftan flows with every step I take, which makes it perfect for twirling around. So that's exactly what I did when taking it out to the city. I like the movement in the butterfly wings and skirt, and yet it still shows some shape because it's tight at the waist. Will definitely be taking this versatile piece with me on my holiday next month - I can't wait!

What I'm up to

Vogue Collections f/w 2012 and Stella McCartney collection I once blogged about

Got some administration and work to do, but first I'm browsing through my brand new copy of Vogue Collections fall winter 2012 with green tea and fresh blueberries. Even though I'm pretty much glued to my app, I prefer holding a magazine to have a closer look at my favorite collections (seeing them on the runway would be even better, obviously).

2) Bottom of my silk shirt
3) Pizza at the best bakers
4) I heart my new rings
5) Nail polishes I got from friends 'to feed my addiction'

Sale season: first favorites

Sale season has started and the big 4-letter signs on every window make me want to go straight to shopping. I haven't been able to do so yet, and to compensate I'm combing through the sale sections of my favorite online stores. The only bummer about that is that it usually takes forever. So I'm now listing my favorite sale finds in collages, that I might as well share. Starting today with My Wardrobe, where sale is already up to 50% (it seems like online shows are always earliest with giving half off, am I right?)

What are you looking at?
Acne darling dress (I have this in black and cream)
American vintage blouse
Dannijo iPhone case (I'm getting this one!)

Outfit: Between the lines

I hold Isabel Marant personally accounted for creating a craze around cropped red leather pants. Finally I own a pair and I think it will be a wardrobe staple next fall. Didn't want to post this yet though, because I wore leather pants in my previous outfit as well but hey... Sometimes you just wear some of the same things. I'm already glad I managed to shoot a few outfit shots :) I've been working as an editor 5 days a week - an amazing experience - and doing everything blog related after work hours and on weekends. I'm basically running my own little business next to a fulltime job and last week was too hectic to shoot. Soon things will slow down a little and I'll find some balance between these two things I love doing :) For now I'll keep posting pretty much every day like I already do and thanks for always coming back!
♥ Yara

 PS. Did you already make a list with your 10 holiday essentials to win a trip to Portugal here? And did you agree with my items in the post? I really hope one of you wins the contest :D

In this outfit

 pants and heels (in stores soon)

Givenchy resort

Givenchy's resort 2012 collection is an interesting take on the statement floral prints and tribal influences we've seen other big brands doing. Riccardo Tisci was inspired by Hawaiian surf culture and took pictures of flowers and then digitally manipulated them to create these prints (I'm particularly loving the printed pencil skirts).

My new suede shoes

I've been looking for a high street version of the perfect suede boots with a reference to the Isabel Marant boots - a tan suede pair that is easy going yet elegant enough to wear with dresses. I've found the answer in theseAggie boots and they're just as comfortable as my Pistols! They look great on my feet and I'm looking forward to pairing them with jeans, shorts and flowy dresses.(So much that I might get the black pair as well for that price... 50 euros for suede boots is not bad at all. What do you think?)

Did some iPhone shopping

I must confess, I did some big shopping yesterday... It was between the Balenciaga bag (not yet) or the iPad and then I ended up as the proud owner of an iPhone 4! I was going to wait until my Blackberry contract ends (in a long time) but woke up in a shopping spirit. The iPhone 4 suits me better than my Blackberry because of the high quality camera, photo apps and good internet options. I think, when you have the chance, it's a smart thing to invest in a good camera, laptop and phone as a blogger. After all, a lot of what we do takes place on these technological devices :) (and Angry Birds is a nice little extra)

To the point

It's been a while since I've last worn pointy heels, but these ones are becoming my go to shoes for events or dinners the past week and a half. It's crazy how we actually need to layer cardigans, jackets and jeans lately. There seems to be nothing left from the heat wave we had - it's nothing but clouds and rain. On the bright side, it does make it possible for me to wear my new leather pants in June... I like how they're cut just at the ankles and show a tiny peek of skin.
