“What have I been loving lately?” That’s the question I ask myself whenever I plan on writing this blog post. I love that this type of post has made me more aware of the things I’ve been loving and realizing why. The last one I posted is from three to four months ago and you could say these are my summer inspired Loves Lately, which I’ve categorized from Instagram and fashion loves to music, phone accessoires and drink loves. Enjoy!
Since I spent most of my time at home the past months, I also started to create new on Spotify. I want to share them on here, but they aren’t done yet (I think). Lately a lot of artists have dropped new music, like Taylor Swift. I wouldn’t call myself a Taylor Swift fan but this album… girl, it’s so good! The songs are really like the old Taylor and I love the vibe of those songs. Her album has been on repeat all the time: when I am cycling to work, cleaning my room and writing blog posts. My fave song? August or invisible string I think.
So much of my inspiration I find on Instagram. I am always searching for new people to follow (suggestions are always welcome btw). The past months I’ve been crushing on the amazing style of Hannah from @cocobeautea. Her street style photos are the best and she has inspired me to invest more into basic pieces in my wardrobe. Staying with the style inspo, I believe I discovered Alyssa from @alyssalenore because of a Chanel bag unboxing on her YouTube channel. Her style is very basic and neutral, which matches my style perfectly at the moment. Besides that, her bag collection is insane. I mean, the pearl Chanel bag…
Phone accessoires loves
With a new iPhone also come new phone cases. The thing with phone cases is that there are so many options and I get overwhelmed. I just want to protect my phone and have a neutral colored and patterned case. Luckily BURGA let me pick three phone cases from their collection and I choose a dotted (Almond Latte), palm leaves (Happy Place) and marble (Vanilla Sand) phone case. The cases fit nice around my phone and I like the feel of them! Now I also want a matching case for my AirPods. With the code THOUGHTSINSTYLE15 (valid until October 21st) you get 15% off, so don’t forget to use it at checkout!
Sunny days mean a lot of sunglasses time. My eyes can’t handle bright light, so even on days it’s not sunny, you will see me wearing sunglasses outside. Ray-Ban is for sure my favorite sunglasses brand and I thought it was the perfect time to buy myself a new pair after five years with my current ones. These ones are black, simple but still with some detail (hexagon like). Oh, and (very important) they are polarized!
My phone lit up and I saw I was tagged in an Instagram Story. I checked the notification and saw that I won a giveaway from Marlous (@lastdaysofspring) for a linnen shirt from Arber. I wasn’t familiar with this brand but when I entered the giveaway, I checked their website and loved the timeless pieces and the fact that they value sustainability so much. I chose this white linnen shirt and it’s a piece that will be in my wardrobe for such a long time, I already know it. Thanks once again Marlous and Arber!
Water, water, water. When asked what I want to drink, 99,99% of the time I ask for water. Sometimes I get something else, ice tea green or rose lemonade. At first rose lemonade from Fentimans was only available at restaurants but now they’ve released their very popular rose lemonade drink in tin cans. So, every once in a while I get them and drink them with a snack on the weekend or whenever I am with my friends. It’s kind of the perfect summer drink.
That rounds up my loves lately for now! It’s such a random collection of things I’ve been loving. Maybe you’ll get some inspiration out of the things I’ve loved and maybe try them, buy them or follow them. This was all based around summer… and I just can’t wait for fall! I love everything during fall. The thick sweater, the colors, the cozy vibes. Hopefully fall won’t bring us too much rain and still sunshine every now and then. What’s your favorite loves lately? And why this specific thing?
