ZARA Shoe Heaven


Zara summer heels

This morning I couldn't help but check out all the amazing heels at Zara! While Topshop, Office and Miss Selfridge and others have great shoe ranges, Zara will always be a winner for me. Now, surfing through online stores and drooling over the shoes is probably not the best idea when you're on a student budget. Need a job ASAP. Anyway, I put together this wishlist for you guys, notice how most of the heels are nude? I don't know what my problem is! Which ones are your favorite?

Don't forget to follow my blog on Bloglovin, especially if you already follow me on GFC, since it will be closing down! ♥

Last Day In the Sun

This post is actually the first one I'm posting in Luxembourg now, I just arrived two hours ago and feel extremely tired after the whole journey, the flight was more than 4 hours which is the longest I've ever been in a plane! The weather is super cold here too, I mean, imagine coming from 25 degrees to 2 degrees, yuck. Anyways, my brother took these photos of me yesterday, I'm not too keen on posting complete bikini photos on the internet with all the perverts out there, so to change it a little bit I put on some shorts, sunglasses and even did my hair! I will now watch The Carrie Diaries and maybe take a little nap. Hopefully in the evening I'll meet some friends and go to town. ♥

Black Chiffon

Yesterday me and my family went to a very touristy place in Tenerife just to check it out. The beach was absolutely packed and people were tanning nude! Such crowds could easily piss me off anyday, haha. I love being here, I don't even both to do my make-up or hair, because I'll probably go in the pool later anyway (that's why my hair is all over the place here haha). While walking past the beach, my little brother snapped these photos of me. I'm wearing a Missguided dress, Topshop wallet (I forgot my bag in Luxembourg :D) and Mango sunglasses.

Navy playsuit

This is what I wore yesterday where I stayed home all day! I bought this playsuit in Mango sometime last summer, it was kind of an impulse buy, but it's actually a very nice thing to have on a holiday, since it's very comfy! This morning again I went for a run, much shorter than the other day because there was something weird with my leg, but now I'm back and all ready to go to another city nearby. Also wearing a long-sleeved black dress, even though it's 25 degrees outside and very sunny.. However I've been waiting to wear it for a while! ♥

Outfit details: 

Hat - Pieces
Sunglasses - Mango

Tenerife


I thought I would step away from outfits and fashion stuff for one day and show you some fun, colorful photos from my vacation. I'm really loving it here! Even though I'm red as a tomato, haha. Yesterday we went to a mall, which had lots of amazing shops, such as Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius, Blanco.. for me all these shops go in the same group, they sell very similar things since some of them are owned by the same people, or something. Anyway I didn't actually buy anything, lately I kind of feel that there is nothing interesting in the shops. Even in the UK it seems that everyone sells and wears the same stuff, it is a bit boring! I did however end up getting a sports bra and new flip flops from Oysho (what an awesome shop!!!) - it was so minimalistic and simple, yet everything was so stylish and cool!

If you want more regular updates, follow my instagram at kristianav, I'm really going crazy since getting my new phone! ♥

Monochrome

Heyhey! I'm in Tenerife now, and I really haven't had any proper time to blog the last few days, apologies for that! Today was a very long day, I woke up at 9 and went for a run, then I tanned/swam in the pool until about 1 and was very tanned! Unfortunately that tan later turned into a terrible sunburn, you can actually see the first signs of it on my legs in the last photo. My whole body is literally burning, what's worse is that the back and front of my legs are completely red whereas the sides are completely white. Ugh. Anyway, today I had a very monochrome outfit and I thought it would contrast well with the colorful surroundings of our house! The area is just so beautiful, it's crazy! I didn't have my hair in a bun the whole day though, here my hair was wet and it was the easiest way to get it away from my face :) More photos tomorrow! ♥

Dress - c/o Sheinside (old)
Sandals - Zara

Popcorn & Frill


As you can see, I'm all safe and sound back in Luxembourg! Last night I also went out but was already home at 3, because the night was far from a success. I was incredibly tired from travelling and wearing heels all day (during the day boots and during the night pumps), so I just wanted to sleep in my big, comfy bed.

As for the outfit, it's something I've been wanting to try for ages. I'm in love with frill socks and even though I got these last summer, I haven't worn them yet. I'm also very happy with the 2 new items AX Paris sent me - the top and the skirt! The heels are my all-time favorites that I got in Zara more than a year ago, and I literally wear them every second time I go out partying, they are THAT good! Do they look worn? No? Didn't think so. Not only is the quality amazing, especially for all the bad things I've put them through (a friend puked on them, have walked through snow and rain in them etc..) but they are also extremely comfortable, I wear them for hours and feel great. Talk about value for money! :) As for the look, I feel like I'm slightly cheating in these photos, so let me tell you a few truths: I'm wearing last night's make-up (I did re-apply the lipstick though!), my hair is greasy so the roots are more visible than usual, you may have noticed that I'm growing out my natural color. Another truth is that this top is actually a peplum top, which I'll be wearing with pants as well as with skirt! Last truth is that I haven't worn this outfit yet, but definitely will sometime in the future! ♥

22/03/13

Hey folks! I've been so busy the last few days that I didn't even take any proper photos, apart from updating my instagram (kristianav). I'm leaving the UK today to go back home to Luxembourg, it's kind of scary. I mean I have flown all alone before plenty of times but this is the first time I've to do everything by myself, like take the bus and train to airport.. Gonna be a long day! I don't have much else to say, I basically wanted to stop by and let you know I'm alive. Next update will be from Luxembourg, see you later! ♥

Spaghetti Strap

Whenever I go to London, one of the stores I visit is Zara, since we don't have it in the town where I study. This time I was really surprised and happy to find this purple chiffon dress on sale for 6£, because I've been eyeing it since December, but didn't really want to pay 30£ for such a simple dress. I'm super happy with this purchase, can't wait to wear it on summer nights out. I might even pop up sometime soon with an outfit post on how I would style it, we'll see! I'm a really big fan of tiny straps on tops and dresses, I think it creates a very feminine and simple look, even better when the straps are actually made of chains or pearls! Even though I'm on a tight student budget and can't really afford to go shopping, I do torture myself by looking at ASOS every now and then, so I put together this wishlist of other items that have awesome straps! If anyone feels like buying me gifts, you know what to get! ;) Jokes aside, I'm now going to get busy and tidy/clean my room, as well as start packing, because I'm going home to Luxembourg in a few days! ♥

Standing In the Rain


Yesterday's outfit! I literally took the photos in the rain, because it has not stopped raining for almost 2 days. The title of the post actually reminded me of this song by Billy Talent. Suddenly feeling nostalgic. They were the first band I ever saw live, back when I was 13, and the only band I ever crowdsurfed for.. yes, I was 13. Ha.
Recently I realized that the reason I always wear jeans is that I don't have suitable shoes that go with my dresses/skirts, therefore I found these Ebay booties for mere 15£, score!

Outfit:

Blouse - H&M
Skirt - c/o Romwe
Boots - Ebay

Breakeven


I know, I know, I'm the world's best blogger for announcing a comeback and then again neglecting my blog for 2 days. I was being super lazy/sick/tired, whatever, even my room is a huge mess. Yesterday I had a very busy day! First I had accounting lessons, then I went to town with my friend Rosie for some retail therapy (I didn't buy anything though - student life haha) and then we decided to shoot some photos. I wore a super simple outfit, the black sweater and black jeans are my go-to formula when I have no idea what to wear. Then I change it around with the help of different shoes, jackets, bags and stuff. I have some other go-to outfits, such as black bodycon dress with chunky boots. Basically any all-black outfit. What's your go-to outfit? Me and Rosie tried to do some hair photos. I got a lot of great snaps of her, however, as you may notice, I, myself, could not master the art of...throwing my hair back? All my photos came out like this or with a really awkward face :( Anyway, after town I hurried home, had some food and got ready because I took part in the winter sports society barcrawl which is famous for being absolutely crazy. And crazy it was! Hello, recovery day.

Everyday snaps

Unfortunately today I have nothing new to show you guys, so I will post some photos that have not been published here before, mostly random snaps from my daily life! :) This is me and my good friend Rosie on Friday night when we were having a Coctail Bar Crawl with the girls. I'm living with her next year!
Campus wildlife
Absolutely in love with UK magazines!



Last, but not least, I wanted to ask you guys if you could nominate me here for the Company Style Blogger awards in the Personal Style category! I would really really really appreciate that! I'm not actually expecting to win or even be nominated, after all I'm kind of new to the UK, but if I don't try I will never know, right? ♥
