The first night on Friday we arrived rather late in Budapest, so made our way to our hotel, refreshened up and then headed out to explore this beautiful and very exciting city. There was a light rain but nothing could dampen our mood, we walked for hours finding fun food spots and great places to have a drink. Finally we saw some of the beautiful buildings and walked all the way back to our hotel. Whilst walking we found the most beautiful street with the stunning old street lights lighting the walk way, I felt like I was in the Mary Poppins movie and had to take some pictures there.

Other than my shoes I am wearing a completely second hand outfit, the trousers are from a wonderful Vintage second hand store in Södermalm called Emmaus and the brand is Lapidus, the top and bag are from my Grandmother, the jacket is my mothers and the scarf was from another second hand store but has no label and was bought a while ago. The trousers are the best thing I have ever bought, they fit me almost perfectly and really make me feel elegant, I have seen some other girls with the tight trousers at the top which fan out towards the bottom and think they look amazing! The things you can find in second hand stores are brilliant, I love some of the older fashion items, what fashion era would we say these trousers are from?

This is my favourite outfit at the moment and is perfect for a night out where the weather is getting cooler as you can wrap up warm or wear thermals underneath. The lighting and background mixed with this outfit make my favourite fashion images of this trip and make me wish I could visit these amazing streets all the time to take pictures. I will write my trip details tomorrow and share some of the amazing buildings and sights I got to see in my quick weekend trip away, but now I am going to bed as its been very busy and I need energy to start the new week. I hope you all had an amazing weekend and I would love to know about your guess for the fashion era and what you think of the outfit!?

Jacket, Scarf, Belt and Jumper are all second hand! It makes me so so excited when I am wearing an almost all second hand outfit, especially here where I get to add a beautiful pair of shinny jeans and heeled boots. I love the casual jumper look paired with a nice pair of jeans and boots, its a great comfy winter outfit that makes me stand tall! The belt is my Grandmas and the scarf is my boyfriends grandmas which is my favourite type of second hand, when I get to wear something that I know the history behind rather than guessing where and who owned what I now own. When I am in a second hand store, I always wonder why people owned some of the clothing and what they wore it for and why they gave it away.

Was the dress worn for a really nice party where the women met a man who made her so so happy and they dated for a long time and then it turned out he was really lying about who he was and had 10 other girlfriends? Because I would throw the dress away too.

Was the jeans bought by a doting mother for her daughter after looking in a magazine and seeing these great new type of jeans but as the girl gets this present she puts them on and leaves the house only to change the jeans for the one in her bag and drops them off at the local charity store, telling her mum someone must have accidentally taken them at the swimming pool so she borrowed a spare pair of trousers.

I would love to know any stories of how your clothes might have ended up in a charity shop, the obvious that I have are growing out of them and not liking them anymore but I don't have any crazy or funny stories. I hope you like the outfit!

Yesterday towards the end of my shift, my darling friend Olivia came to say hello and do some writing whilst I finished my shift and then had a lovely chat afterwards. When I came down into the bar she was chatting to two weird and drunk guys, after they left I asked why and she said for the research. At first I laughed because they were so uncomfortable to talk to and I would have avoided any eye contact at all times when sat in a bar alone but as I thought more about it, I realised how interesting it is that she puts herself into those positions to learn more for her writing and get more experiences. It is always a huge learning situation to speak to different people from all different backgrounds and views so that you can learn and understand and of course get great content to talk and write about. A lot of my blogging is about outfits and styles and beauty products, plus ways to change things in your life to live more sustainable. However the most important part is for me to learn about other peoples views and to learn about new ways to live eco friendly because then I can share and grow. I myself have to grow more to be able to put myself into the situations where I ask more questions and learn. People in Sweden are not so open to randomly talk to you on the train or in a coffee shop but once they have had a few drinks they will talk forever. So that was my very exciting life lesson of yesterday, to become the influencer that I want to be I have to put myself out there more and learn as much as I can all the time.

Pink is my all time favourite colour right now, when I have been looking at second hand stores I am drawn to the pink colours coming from the rails. Here is my favourite outfit at the moment, its comfortable and pink and different materials. The more I am learning about the fashion trends I like and the different materials that fit me, the more I learn about the great types of fashion that exist. Different outfits we wear can represent our emotions of the day, I will never wear the same type of clothing every day because I will never feel the same way all the time.

What do you guys think of this outfit? I have been trying to find more corduroy trousers at the second hand store but I believe they are becoming very popular now or people have stopped giving them in. I am off now to do a photo shoot and have a yummy lunch, I hope you all have the best day!

Today was the type of day where I felt like I had sooo much to do that I ended up going shopping instead. The day went well, I woke up and had a nice breakfast and sent emails and then had a lovely lunch with a friend and walked around the city and then met up with @emelieolssons and went round all the great second hand stores in Södermalm which is a very cool part of the city! One awesome part of this city is that each island has its own theme, you can go from classy where everyone wears suits and the shops are all Gucci and Prada and then you go to Söder where its more second hand and hippy clothes. It is so much fun walking through this city and seeing all the beautiful buildings and different people.

We visited so many different second hand stores today, I will do a list of all the great second hand stores one day! It is so much fun and also very very exhausting going through lots and lots of the weirdest and sometimes ugliest clothes I have ever seen. Yet every now and then you find a golden item and its amazing and money saving and makes your wardrobe a little brighter and more beautiful.

The jacket, scarf and bag are second hand here!

Today I found the most amazing trousers from Lapidus, an unusual shirt from Premiere collection, a super cute jumper and a great scarf with no tags unfortunetly. All for less than £20 or 210SEK!! Honestly it is the most satisfying thing to know that you're getting great clothing, at a great price and making sure nothing gets thrown away. What do you guys think of second hand? It is such a big part of being more sustainable with clothing, especially since a lot of new sustainable clothing is very expensive so it helps to have other options. I love to share different outfits with a theme of second hand and hope you all like it too and get a little inspired to shop there yourself too!

You'll see these items properly soon in some new looks I will be shooting.

Here is a rock chic outfit, thanks to my darlings @emelieolssons wardrobe. I absolutely love the t-shirt, Vogue is the best thing ever and I read every single issue a few times (plus keep them so I have a lot laying around) and I think the message is funny and who knows its probably true!

i borrowed Emelie's amazing leather jacket that she has had since she was very young. The best items of clothing are the ones with a history to them. This weekend I wore my Grandmothers belt and think its brilliant, as it adds something old and original to your look. Everyone shouldn't dress the same, its boring and shows no originality between us. The people I notice in the streets and think wow you look awesome are the people who wear something different and rock it.

This weekend was about being with friends, seeing Adis family and having rest time. It went way to quickly but was a lot of fun! I have eaten a lot of delicious food and had good catch ups with my friends which makes me happy, plus Adi and I had some time to just hang out which was lovely, although we live together it always feels like we never actually get to spend time together however today we just went to the gym, did some shopping, made lots of food and are now snuggled on the sofa watching the football and blogging. I am really glad I had some time to myself to just think about whats next and get stuff done, I feel super positive about next week and whats coming next with the blog.

Next week there will be lots of different things coming to my page and more sustainable posts with new products and information that I cant wait to share! Plus my family are coming to visit which makes me very excited to be with them soon. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and like this fun look.
