Outfit 15

Today’s outfit is a mix of this twoI am wearing the same things all over again, because I haven’t bought anything in a while, apart from basics, like leggings, socks. I am saving money for my weekend in London, we are going in a couple of weeks. We got bored of the shops we have around so it’s good to go to new places. Now days we can buy anything online but I prefer to try the clothes on before buy them, I finishing taking back many of the online purchases because the weren’t what I expected.  Sizes are different in each item, that doesn’t help either…are your experiences online the same?

My boyfriend is really worried I am going to spend the whole weekend shopping,   I’ll try not to do that ; )

Outfit 14

Fall arrived today, the weather is miserable, rainy, windy  and gloomy day. Full black outfit with a touch of color.

You can also see my bag I talked about in this post. It’s not showing the zippers in front, next time I will.

Shop my closet

I have added a few clothing items, like below trench, to my blog shop. If you see anything you like, please email me at lunadayblog at gmail dot com or post a comment.

 

Boots

I bought these boots last spring at Massimo Dutti .

I was looking for a low heel leather bootie in other color than black. These were within my budget and the leather was really soft, I tried them on and walked home with a new shoe box.  Soon I realized that the heel was too high. I went to the cobbler and he chopped a bit off.

It was only 1’5 cms but they are much more walkable now. I can wear them with every single piece of clothing I own. As you can see the top as well.

Skirts

Apart from skinnies fitted skirts are another staple in my closet. I use longer lengths for work and shorter for casual. I prefer cotton because they look less bulky on me, I already have hips, I don’t need anything else attached.I love stripped shirts (I have three) and neutral colors (grey, black, beige).

First the work wear version, with all grey and silver flats.

The weekend version, you can see I can wear color! I like dark pink and red.

I am still going bare legs, but these two outfits go easily with tights.

 

Shops

We are planing a weekend trip to London. I haven’t been abroad in a while and London is a fantastic place to go any time of the year. Shopping will be one of the highlights, but I will also go for a few pints in the pub, curry, pret a manger sandwiches and some sight seen!

Topshop I have a a couple of moto leigh super soft  jeans and I would like to buy another pair in grey. I can’t have enough skinnies.

Uniqlo the japanese store hasn’t sell online and the +J collection has many things I love. I really need a simple black coat.

Marks & Spencer I have been having my undies in M&S since a move to UK in 1996, I came back in 2000 but I kept buying them, now I can shop online I don’t have to ask anyone going to London to bring me some.

Newlook perfect place for a pair of not expensive shoe boots.

Wharehouse for the pair of red skinnies I have been lusting for.

Whistels if I change my mind and I buy a red coat instead of black one.

Frenchconection I am looking for a black long cardigan like this one.

Also American Apparel has a shop in London, I would like to have a look at this cardigan as well.

This is just a small sample of London shops, it’s a meca for shoppers, I will probably go to see many more but i don’t think I have enough budget to buy all I want…

Wish

I saw this skirt yesterday in Zara and I absolutely love it. But I thought to myself, do I need a sheer, pleated, black maxi? And the answer was no (sad face here).

Outfit 13

Say hello to my crappy pictures from yesterday’s outfit. At least my bed was done and you can see my lovely rug from Urban Outfitters. Maybe it’s just the outfit number…

This is more or less my uniform these days. We are still living in summer in Madrid, but it gets chillier at nights, that’s the reason for the jacket and boots.

I just realized that the jacket and the jeans are my mum’s last year and this year birthday presents, she always give me some money for clothes, she thinks that’s the best I can spend her money in…

I think everybody has this H&M parka in green, but I hate green and I love black, so black parka.

Black Skinnies

I have finally bought these Cheap Monday jeans via Kolibrishop . Hopefully this time I’ll get it right, last time I bought them on sale in Asos and they were far too small, it looks like that they run small. They are an unisex style so I thought they could fit my boyfriend and they did!!  We are going to wear the same jeans….that’s a stylish couple isn’t it??

Skinny black jeans are for me like the holy grail of my closet, much more than blue jeans. I love black so much I could wear it every day. I bought a pair of high waisted black jeans in H&M last year but I prefer mid rise, I find them more flattering, that’s the reason I choose these ones from Top Shop that I have been wearing to death. As I said before they are not the best quality but the fit is really good and they are very comfortable.

Let’s see if these are up to the expectations.

Do you have any holy grail in your closet?

Inspiration

I love this look. Black skinnies, white shirt and a leather jacket is my idea of perfect outfit. I like that it has a bit of an edge with the leather and tall boots.  My pair of black healed tall boots died last year, I need to find a new pair but they can wait till the sales.

Via Stockholm Streetstyle

I would like to have a real leather jacket in my closet, at the moment I only have something that looks like leather….I have been eyeing this one from Uterque but the price tag is too high, maybe with a half price sale?
