More presents

Besides the H&M gift card mentioned here, I have also gotten some other presents recently, such as a few more pieces to add to my Derriere la Porte collection (see the things I already had before here and here).
What I got was a cute box to put tea bags in...

A sugar box (for sugar cubes, I think...)

And a napkin holder, like the ones you see in restaurants (not the nicest ones!) and coffee shops.

Pretty neat!

On my wish list right now

For my bachelorette party, I got quite a few presents. One of them was a rather large gift certificate to H&M, which happens to be one of my favorite stores (which my friends well knew, of course). So now I have some serious shopping to do!
Some of the things I am coveting at H&M right now are...
(because of the gorgeous color)
(because of the pretty details)

(because I love ballet flats, and especially ones with pretty details)

(because it's casual and again, because of the color)

(because I need more dresses to wear for special occasions. I think this fits the bill!)

(because it's fun!)

Today I'm excited about...

... the fact that Londoner Stella McCartney, who also happens to be one of my all time favorite fashion designers, will be designing the uniforms for the British athletes who will compete in the Olympic Games in her hometown of London next year.

After all, Stella has tons of experience in designing sportswear for Adidas, and I think she does it wonderfully, so that is really quite a lovely choice by the Brits. I'm really looking forward to seeing the British uniforms in 2012! (And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one)

I'm a married woman now

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I got married this weekend, so I have not had very much time to spare in the last days. Sadly, I do not have any photos yet, but everything went well and I had a blast!

I think I will be back on track with the blogging in a couple of days though, when the last of my out of town guests have gone back home.

I simply cannot decide!

Another H&M related post (there's been quite a few of them lately, but what can I do? I simply LOVE H&M!).

When I went to H&M, I saw these nautical inspired pieces:

And although I love the nautical style on others, it has never been quite me. So I have to admit, I own no nautical pieces, and although I think it might be nice to try some, I simply can't decide if I should go for it or not.
If I do, I don't want to buy an investment piece for hundreds or thousands of dollars, since I'm not so sure if the nautical style fits me at all, so these H&M pieces would be perfect.

What do you guys say? Should I go for it or not? Are the pieces cute or not?

Today I shopped...

This really nice dress from the H&M Concious Collection. Perfect for summer parties, and I love the color! (I got the beige one, not the white one)

Spotted today

These beautiful see through dresses from H&M, simply perfect as cover ups when you're going to the beach in a bikini or bathing suit this summer.

Today I'm loving...

Sofi Fahrmans gorgeous skirt from Dagmar.
I simply must find one of these myself!

Today I envy...

Khloe Kardashian's shoe collection, that I saw pics of on the great blog I Love...

Isn't that a wonderful collection? And look at all those Louboutins! (click on the pics to enlarge them if you can't see the soles well enough!)

Personally, I kind of thought that getting a pair of Louboutins would make me want more pairs less, but I have to say, it doesn't seem to work that way. Instead, I just want more pairs, because the craftsmanship and comfort is just incredible!

The perfect dress for a summer wedding

I am invited to a lovely summer wedding (besides my own) in June, and I have been trying to find something suitable to wear for ages now. And I think I just might have found it!

Out of all places, the perfect dress seems to be waiting for me at Mango, a store I normally don't like that much. But isn't this dress adorable?
