I'm soon starting classes again and thinking how to dress the part. I need some essentials of course and I don't think you could go wring if you incorporate these items into your school look whether it being lectures or seminars. What's your essentials at school or work?
The Topshop playsuite would be great for last of winter and early spring while stuck inside a class room. The colour is versatile and I like the little details like the pleading and the belt. The knit coat from H&M is also super great for this time of year. Stylish and warm which is important here in Scandinavia.. Otherwise, we'll probably die of pnemonia.. Topshop & H&M
I tend to get very dry hands and lips so I always carry hand cream and either a lip balm or a lipstick in my bag. I have for the past year or so been completely in love with Mor Cosmetics and especially their 'Snow Gardenia' line. Its not too heavy a scent but still gives you that luxurious feeling even in the middle of a class room taking notes. And the look of it suggests you are in a leage of your own.. Precious! And if that isn't enough, take out the Coco Rouge lipstick from Chanel and make their heads spin! I have already too many lipsticks but I really love the 'Mademoiselle' nuance, subtle and chic.

I have a 'thing' for white notebooks. Their clean polished pristine look gives you the clar base of some serious philosophering (is that a word?). And our brother land Sweden certainly knows how to do this. Ordning & Reda offers you a great selection of calendars, stationary, notebooks, pens and paper in almost all shapes and colours. I'd use the big one in class and the little on 'field trips' or to secret messages from the other students. Wouldn't that be nice to stumple upon during a boring re-cap? Ordning & Reda
And last but not least, the camera I'm saving up for. It almost aches wainting to have enough money for it and to think of all the amazing photos I can make with this beauty. This is the reason why I'm not shopping this year - at all!!! I figured that I would sooner be able to buy this if I didn't spend my money on clothes I won't wear to shreds which in fact is the least you can do. I can't even explain how much clothes I have stocked up that needs to be either sold or given to charity. I couldn't even remember a lot of the stuff! Canon
Now, I will go through my remaining clothes and accessories and try to find something that could be honourable substitutes for these goodies I've shown you. I'm actually embracing my new life (style?) as a non-shopper. And definately more aware of what I don't really need or want when it comes to actually paying. I also think I'm getting more aware of what my true style really is, I'm leaning more and more towards the more clean and simple look but not minimalist though - I love colours and prints - in stead of the eclectial and 'roundabout' look I'm used to and actually annoyed with. So that's probably a little revelation on top of my resolution this year. Not that bad finally figuring out.
Have a wonderful weekend...
