I have a crush on boots

Good morning all!

My name is Alice and I have a crush on a pair of boots. Oh wait, two pairs. 

That’s right, I am completely obsessed with these wonderful hugging gloves for your feet. I am a sucker for heels, would love to wear them often but my feet just can’t take them and time 3 hours I’m in pain and just want to put my feet in ice water. But I finally found my saviors! These ankle boots with middle height heels and laces are the perfect companions for long working days and afternoons about town spent shopping. I can surprisingly wear them 10-12 hours straight without any discomfort whatsoever. 
I found these online at H&M for 30€ and after being amazed by the brown pair, I couldn’t help myself from getting the black ones too. The brown ankle boots have the classic weathered leather look and with the tie ups the look is very casual and can be worn with pants or a dress and just give the perfect boho look. On to the black ones, they have a fluffy insert that is already making me happy thinking of how warm it will keep my feet in winter. These have a suede feel to them and are just as comfortable, if not more thanks to the inner padding. 
All in all, I am completely in love with these boots and am already wearing them non-stop!
Have you found your go-to shoes for fall and winter?

Fotd and ootd: my first checkered shirt!

checkered shirt, boots
Good morning ladies!  I’m getting a hang of these outfit posts and kind of liking them. Do you?  This time a “Dutch” outfit featuring my first ever checkered shirt. If you know me in person you’ve heard me complain about the amount of squares I see on people here in The Netherlands. Shocking! But finally after 4 years of dutchness, I caved and bought this blouse on sale at the V&D from the brand SOHO (7€ here). To be honest, squares or not, I really like the cut and it goes well with lots of different outfits, especially jeans and boots! So here it is paired with a pair of petrol Superstretch pants from H&M (19.99€ here) and my favorite low biker boots.

Pre-fall fotd and ootd

Hello beauties! 

After an amazing sunny and warm weekend, the weather turned miserable here and I naturally went into “pre-fall” mode. This means long pants and darker colors for my outfit and a slightly darker smokey eye in the tones of brown and cool bronze.

The pants are the H&M Superstretch Pants (19.99€ here) in a beautiful petrol blue/green, they’re very stretchy and fit the figure tightly. The top is Intimissimi Vogatore (9€ here) in a burgundy/violet color that hides the fluffy parts but still leaves a good amount of skin out, after all it’s still summer (somewhere). I top that off with an old jeans blouse from H&M. I still cannot avoid some summery mint pops so I have these mint sneakers from Dockers I found in clearance at V&D (20 €, similar ones here) and on my nails the KIKO nail polish in Milk Mint (2.50 € here) which has been my summer favorite. 
Some more love goes to the accessories, earrings and necklace are from revival London and I found them again on clearance in V&D (that was a great shopping trip indeed). I just can’t stop wearing this combo!
For makeup I did my usual base with the L’Oreal Eau de Teinte in 140 Pure beige, my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 20 and the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to set it all. For some color in the complexion I used The Body Shop bronzing pearls and Catrice Defining Blush in 030 Love & Peach. On the eyes a base with the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze and shadows from my beloved Lorac Pro palette. On the lips Rimmel Moisture Renew in Nottinghill Nude.
Do you also feel this pre-fall vibe in these rainy days? Thanks for passing by.
