Red is the new black

That might not be the truth for the fashion industry, but it applies to my sense of fashion. I have been in love with the red color palette for some time, but only last summer did I start wearing things red


Loving all things red also means that I fell in love with this red brick wall!



I started subtle and cautiously with nail polish and accessories. This bag was a huge step towards a bolder styling. It works well with my wide palette of neutrals and also gives it a touch of color! Now I finally own some staples as well. You have seen most of them in my 30 for 30 challenge – the red coat, the blouse I am wearing today and of course the lovely red skirt! I am still on the lookout for more – shoes, tops and a Cardigan in particular. Oh and red jeans (seen here on Kendi for example) would be amazing. But pants are a tricky story for me.


What I wore (apart from the 30x30 pieces, find these here)
Leggings: Gina Tricot
Scarf (on the bag): Thrifted, Helsinki Flea Market
Bag: H&M; got it on Ebay
Earrings: gift from a friend
Necklace: Bazaar in Turkey




One week ago, I finished my exams. Today, I finally managed to cross off a lot of things from my To Do List and it makes me feel good to also have some time for myself again. Perfect timing to get some personal reading done! I am currently working on some reviews for the blog, so stay tuned for it :)

Such a classic outfit! I love the pop of pink layered under your sweater and the red bag.
