H&M Studio AW16 pt. 2

Heyhey! Here's some photos we took of this cute H&M Studio top a couple of weeks ago in Luxembourg. I remember it was so hot that day - at 10AM when we went to shoot, the temperature had already reached 30 degrees, so it was actually pretty crazy. I really adore long sleeve tops, as I think they make you look more delicate and they are such an easy addition to any bottoms.

Last Saturday I celebrated my 23rd birthday in Copenhagen with my other half and it was really awesome. Kinda crazy that time runs so fast! I love being there, and I'm so glad I could get holiday off from work only 3 weeks in.

H&M Studio AW16

H&M hoodie, earrings and trousers, Deichmann heels

When I stepped into the H&M showroom this summer, I was amazed at all the embroidery and details the H&M Studio AW16 collection presented. My eye immediately caught sight of this hoodie, as it is so different to the conventional and sporty hoodies you'd think of when hearing the word. I also decided to go out of my comfort zone with these statement earrings. They sure felt heavy, but I found that I was quick to adjust! Generally I like to balance our statement items with more basic kind of pieces, so I paired them with these biker jeans and my new favorite Deichmann heels. The H&M Studio collection will launch on the 8th September in 200 stores and online.

In other news, I'm back in the UK and I've just spent a busy few days room hunting as I'm trying to find a place somewhat near my new job in London. I'm so excited and nervous about starting my job, I literally get butterflies in my stomach! I can't believe I'm finally a graduate and doing this adult thing.

Dainty Jewellery

Jewellery is always something I go on and off-again, depending on various stages in my life. There was a time I loved chunky rings and necklaces and was happily ready to spend £30 on a chunky and colorful necklace from Zara (such as here, here, whereas now I tend to go for minimal and dainty pieces that are versatile enough for different outfits. The heart and pearl dainty rings are from Happiness Boutique, which is a fun jewellery brand based in Berlin. One of their missions is to spread happiness, so they've done campaigns to spread this cause; one example is when the staff handed strangers lovely handwritten notes, which I thought was really cute! Just a quick one today guys, as I'm really busy house hunting in London, but tomorrow I'll be back with some new outfit photos! XO

Under the Apple Tree

When I saw this Brandy Melville top, it was love at first sight. Like most Brandy stuff, it is extremely lightweight, which to me seemed like a great solution in dealing with the spasmic summer heatwaves we get between the occasional autumn weather here in Latvia. In order to be more minimalistic with my wardrobe purchases, I've reduced my clothes shopping by a significant amount. It may also have something to do with being unemployed during the summer between graduating and starting my job, but the situation certainly helped the cravings. Having said that, Brandy Melville is a store I struggle to leave without making a purchase, because everything is just so darn comfy, right?! 

In other news, I've secured a job in central London and thus will be moving there end of this month! Well, that's actually in 5 days. I'll be staying at my friends place until I find a suitable place to rent a room, so I've been busy searching the web lately. My main goal is to avoid the tube at all costs as it will mostly be a desk job, so I'm trying to find something that is walking distance to work (about 20-25 minutes). When I worked at House of Fraser, I equally loved and hated the morning/evening daily walk to and fro, and I'm longing for that feeling again.
