Today I'm loving...

... Blake Lively's tulip painted jeans, so cool! Not to mention they look amazing on her, as well!
I really like how Blake styled these jeans too, I would have matched them with a black top and shoes, too.

I have several pairs of rose patterned jeans myself, but tulip jeans are a nice and unexpected twist to the floral jeans trend.

Shopped: My new Derriere la Porte items

My love for Derriere la Porte and their adorable items is well documented on this blog (see some of the Derriere la Porte items I already have here, here and here, for example), but now I've ordered some more. I got 2 of these scarf boxes:
That matches the underwear boxes I already have perfectly, and it was on my Derriere la Porte wish list that I made a while ago, since I have quite a lot of scarves, so it seems like a really good and suitable purchase for me.

I also got this tray, where you are supposed to place your keys, your cellphone, your sunglasses and a bunch of other items when you come home and just want to drop everything as soon as you step through the door:
Quite useful for me as well, since I am currently just scattering these things very randomly all over my house when I come home. So hopefully this tray can help me break that habit!

Today I'm loving...

... several of the sunglasses seen in the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 campaign:
But these ones, with small flowers on the side, are my absolute favorites:
I seriously think I need to get these! The only problem is, I can't find an online store that sells them. So if anyone has an idea of where to get these, please let me know! (I'm normally not a huge Dolce & Gabbana fan so I don't know how many different online stores stock their items, I'm afraid, and I already checked all the stores I could think of on my own, but sadly, without finding them anywhere)

I thnk these are so adorable, they would make a nice addition to any sunglass collection. And while I have over 20 sunglasses already (you can see some of them here and here, for instance), I don't have anything that even remotely resemble these so far. So I do think getting these would be kind of justified in my case!

Shopped: Marc by Marc Jacobs tote and makeup bag

I mentioned in a previous post, the one about my new H&M items, that I had been considering getting this specific Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Well, I decided to go for it, having bought matching items for it already and all. So this bag is now on it's way to me:
As is this matching makeup bag, I thought it would be convenient to have a makeup pouch to go with it, in case I ever want to carry some makeup with me to work or something:

Now let's just hope that the H&M items actually match this bag when it arrives too!

Today I'm loving...

... the fact that Lancome, one of the best makers of eye makeup, is collaborating with Lanvin, one of my all time favorite fashion brands on an eye makeup collection. These are some of the Lanvin for Lancome products that you will find for sale from early June and on:

I think these are so pretty, since I love all kinds of Lanvin illustrations. So I will definitely be getting several of these products, I think. I just need to figure out which ones before they actually go on sale!

My latest H&M haul

Yesterday, I went shopping at H&M, for the first time in quite some time, which is a bit unusual for me, since I usually shop there very often. I mostly buy basics, in different, trendy colors, though, and this time was no exception.

Some of the stuff I got was:

A pair of neon yellow flats
(I love H&M flats, as you may already know)

As well as a tank top in the same shade, from H&Ms Concious Collection
I especially like the scalloped edges on this top, they make a huge difference:
Because I have been eyeing this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag for a while, and I thought both the shoes and the top would match it quite nicely if I end up getting it (which I think I will, now):
I also got a neon pink basic top (because I wanted something to match my new Paul's Boutique bag, that has a big neon pink detail at the front):

And a mint green basic top (because who doesn't love mint green these days?):

As well as a very cool kimono style blouse with lace details, in red:

(unfortunately it really doesn't photograph well at all, though!)

And a black and white striped tunic:
As well as a sleepwear set in pink and white:

H&M makes really good sleepwear, so I tend to buy at least one set each and every season. And I guess this season was no exception!

So all in all, it was a pretty productive shop stop, even though none of the pieces are really very spectacular. But you really do need basics in your wardrobe as well!

Today I'm loving...

Miguelina's pretty beach kaftans.

They are so nicely constructed, they almost look like real clothing, only a bit more see through, I guess. I really want to get some of these, too bad there aren't matching bikinis or swimming suits though, that would have been just perfect!

(You can get both kaftans over at Net-a-Porter, here and here)
