Neoprene Sweater

With a hit of neoprene and a pair of lace up heels, I’m not sure whether this outfit qualifies as casual any longer. But I’m not sure if that matters either. I’m wearing a sweater from the Nicole X Missguided collection, which happens to be my favourite piece of the range. It’s a tad over-sized and with its cool details, it’s everything but your regular white sweater. Along with the comfiest and softest Mavi boyfriend jeans, this is one of those outfits that I feel utterly good in.

The best thing about dressing for transitional weather in my point of view, is being able to wear leather jackets (or coats in general) with bare legs. There’s just something about it! I wore this look last week in town and I have to admit though that I swapped the heels for flats after not too long.

Hair Straightening with ghd

Malena PermentierBeauty5 Comments


My hair varies somewhere between wavy, curly and ‘fro, depending on the day. When I was younger I used to hate my hair, so I straightened it every single day until it was dry as straw. I’ve embraced my (sometimes wild) curls since, but every now and then the compulsive hair straightener in me comes out again. I mean, there’s just something about silky and smooth straight hair. That, and because I’ve heard so many good things about ghd, is why I’m super excited to share my review with you today…
