Faux fur

unnamed-4 kopio

Hey again. I always say to myself I wanna start blogging more but that motivation lasts for a solid 8 seconds, just like my attention span when it comes to uni work nowadays (I'll get it done, just need several breaks in between hahaha). Uni has been overall going pretty well, just need to really focus these last few weeks before hand-ins, but to be fair I'm not even stressing about any of the deadlines, which I don't know if I should be concerned or happy about. I'm just one of those people that will get in done in time, even though there would be loads of procrastination happening prior to the last week.

I've recently found quite a few gems from the thrift stores again, mostly going there to find photoshoot stuff (so excited for my upcoming photoshoots btw, might show final images here on my blog at some point), but also finding some things for myself. One of them is this ah-mazing faux fur coat. It is probably one of the most expensive items I've bought from the thrift stores (I mean, it was still hella cheap for a big coat), but also probably one of my favourites, and also an amazing coat for the colder weather. Definitely bringing this with me to Finland when I'm going there over Christmas.

So, here's a few recent #ootd pics my friend Louise (@louisecmair) snapped of me while I was getting some Instagram photos of the outfit. If you guys do wanna see me more often, definitely go to my Instagram (@lindalovesfashion) because I'm waaaaay more active there than I'm on here. But I do have some youtube videos filmed for you so stay tuned for those. Have a great weekend boys and girls x

STUDIO

linda4

Hi guys, hope you're all having somewhat a decent week. Here are a few shots my friend Emma took while we were playing around with our cameras at our uni's photography studio today. I'm loving the fact that this year we actually have a proper photography course where they're teaching us all the little technical stuff at uni (which is obviously very handy to know when you're studying fashion communication where photography is a huuuuge part of the course), and I feel like I'm not as lost with what I'm doing like last year. We obviously had to do tons of photography, but they didn't actually teach us all the technical bits, which I think would've been pretty important to know before we started doing full on photoshoots. That could've saved me from a few mental breakdowns last year, but oh wellllll, I survived, and not gonna lie I really did like most of the photoshoots I did last year. And I'm not saying that I don't think I won't have a few mental breakdowns this semester too. Feel like they're kinda a part of the whole uni experience hahaha.

I feel like overall uni work is starting to pile up a bit (which might start to stress me out soon), but can't even be bothered about it right now because I'M 21 TOMORROW. So excited for my birthday this year, me and bunch of my friends are going for dinner and cocktails in Edinburgh and dressing up all nice (my birthday dress is actually the prettiest thing, although it's so short it's a bit uncomfortable to wear but hey ho, I'm gonna look banging so who cares). Also, we're celebrating Halloween on Saturday and Tuesday (which is the actual Halloween day, thank god I don't have uni the next day) and I'm looking forward to that a lot. In Finland Halloween isn't huge, so I'm loving the fact that here I can actually properly dress up and go all out! Hope you guys have a great weekend and go crazy for Halloween. Byeeeee.

COMFY AND CASUAL

boux2

Hey again. Finally here with another outfit post, took these pictures a while back and finally have some time to share them with you. I've been back in Scotland for almost a month now and I'm enjoying it a lot. I feel like I'm constantly busy hanging out with friends, at uni etc, but not in a bad way at all. I'm sharing a flat with my bestie in the town centre and I feel like being in a busier environment makes me want to go out and do more things, compared to living in the uni halls last year. Our flat is very slowly coming together, we still have loads of decor items we need to buy but I'm sure we'll get there eventually. But it does already feel like home!

Quite a bit has been going on since I've last updated my blog. For example last week I did a small trip to Manchester for the first time. I'm a student ambassador for Boux Avenue, so they invited me there to an introduction event, where I met some of the other ambassadors, had some free cake and champagne (I never say no to free cake) and overall had a blast. These joggers I'm wearing in these pictures are from Boux Avenue actually and I've been pretty much living in them since I got them in the beginning of this month. Actually, before these pictures, I wore them as pyjama bottoms for the previous night too, and just dressed them up with a bodysuit and heels. So I feel like it's safe to say that they're probably the comfiest joggers I've ever owned. They come with a hoodie as well btw! Here's the link to them ( LINK).

And because I'm an ambassador,  you can use the code LINDA20 for everything 20% off at Boux Avenue! Yay.

DENIM LOOKBOOK

Hi guys! My life's been quite hectic for the past few weeks, from working backstage at the Gloria Fashion Show in Helsinki to flying back to Scotland and starting uni. Settling in is taking some time but hopefully I'll be able to take some outfit pictures for you soon, and tell a bit more about what has been going on in my life. But meanwhile, I did have some time to make this lookbook for you that I filmed in Finland before I left. Hope you enjoy x

90S VIBES

Hey again, hope you're all having a great start of the week! I found these vintage Tommy Hilfiger sunnies from the thrift store for just 2€ and I'm absolutely obsessed with them. To be honest they look way cooler when I wear them like this and not "fully" in front of my eyes , so they're really not the most convenient pair of sunnies to wear when it's actually really sunny... OH WELL, fashion, am I right hahah. But nevertheless I feel like they really give that cool 90s vibe to any look, and I wanted to continue with that vibe and added a vintage Adidas jacket to the look, to contrast the lace bodysuit nicely and make the whole look a bit more relaxed. The lace bodysuit I got from Yoins (LINK) and it's so pretty! Usually with websites similar to Yoins I size up with the stuff I get and that's why got a size M, but at least with this bodysuit I would definitely recommend just sticking to your usual size, because a small would've definitely fit me better!

I really really really need to start packing for Scotland now so will keep this post short and sweet. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
