Look of the Day: Only In Darkness Can You See Stars

"I really can’t wait for winter because then I can start wearing the other 97% of my clothes." I saw this quote on Tumblr the other day and I have to say, I really could not relate more. I have been trying to put together some nice summer outfits, but I often find myself wearing the same thing every single day: high-waisted shorts and a cropped top. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that, but I'm more of a cardigan, sweater, pants, and boots type of gal. 

However, this summer I really got into cropped tops. I think they are rather flattering because they seem to slim the waist and elongate the body. I think this outfit represents my day to day style pretty well. Dark + Denim with rather masculine footwear. 

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Topshop
Shoes: Dr. Martens 1461 in Pewter
Sweatshirt: H&M
Lips: Wet n Wild's Cherry Bomb 

This is the third appearance of my light wash denim skirt from Topshop, because honestly they represent me like nothing else. I really like the fit and it is made out of a super comfortable stretchy material. Don't be surprised to see more of it. I think it's a really great basic "no brainer" piece to have in your closet. 

What are some of your favorite basic key pieces that you like to always have around? Please feel free to share!

I will have some "Back to School" outfit essential ideas coming up! So stay tuned!

Have a lovely Tuesday :)



  1. I nominated you for the Liebstar Award! Check it out on my blog!

  2. I really adore your blog! ♥
    my all times favourites are black flats and doc martens (they go with everything) and of course, black pants. it is sad, that where I live summer is hot and it is hard to wear black all the time, but fire cannot kill a dragon, you know :D

    can we follow each other?

    1. Thank you!
      haha yes, Black is awesome. If I could wear black all the time, I probably would! It's almost fall and I'm so excited to pull out my darker colored clothing from my wardrobe.

      P.s: I followed back^^


  3. Someday or other I too wish winters to come soon! I think it has been too much of summer this year! :D
    Well you look wonderful in black! <3

    Lotsa love :)
