Outfit of the day - when is spring going to come?

I'm really tired of bad and cold weather, and I see most of you already wearing bright colors and all these spring trends that I can't wear yet. I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of jealous but I hope the weather changes soon enough.
So today I'm posting this outfit of the day because I really liked it, and even though it's really simple, I find it cute and comfy at the same time.

Top - Forever 21
Tank top - Zara
Leggings - H&M
Boots - Stradivarius

Like I said, it's really simple but I like it. As you can see dark colors are still what I'm wearing these days. I just want the sun to come out and provide some heat to this city so I can wear pastels and all those good things.
Oh, and by the way, I did wear a blazer over it; like I said, it's still cold. 

Are you wearing spring trends yet? Or is your country/city as cold and blah as mine?

Nail of the day - Bright orange

Basically last week the weather was getting warmer around here and I thought I'd start the spring time by wearing a bright nail polish, so I painted my nails with this pretty orange. The bad thing is that the weather is cold again and now I look kind of stupid with bright nails, but oh well.

I'm not the kind of person who paints their nails every single color and this is the first orange nail polish that I own. I've never painted them green (real green, if you know what I mean, I love mint), yellow, brown, black or white either. So it's sort of out of my comfort zone but I actually like it.

2 coats, natural light

This nail polish is Kiko's number 358 and it's one of the three nail polishes I showed you on my last haul.
I like that this color could be considered a neon orange (you have to see it in person) but at the same time has a hint of pastel in it (I think you can see that in the photos).

 Are you going to wear bright nail polishes this spring?

Haul: a few new things

First of all, I want to apologize for not posting as much as I used to but I'm pretty busy with college stuff. Anyway, this week I've bought a few things that I want to share with all of you. It's not much but I don't really have time to shop either (which makes me super sad).

The first thing that I've been loving is my new Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone cover. It has printed colorful glasses and I think it's really cute.

My second favorite thing is my new purse. I got it at H&M a few days ago and it was only 19.95€, which I think is a really good price for this bag, since I find it very cute and useful. I thought I was only going to use it when I go out with my friends or shopping but I'm also using it for college because my netbook laptop fits inside.

While I was at H&M I picked up a few head bands. I know this is kind of random but I've wanted some for a while and when I saw them I new I have to get them. I got two packets of three head bands each, for 5.90€ in total.

And also from H&M I got a scarf. It is light weight so it's great for spring. The pattern has gold chains and some things that remind me of old building's decorations or the thing that covers the space between the ceiling and the wall in my house (I don't know what it's called).

You probably (or not) know already that I love fashion books, so I got a new one. It is The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior. It contains explanations of fashion items as well as pretty drawings and pictures.

And lastly I went to Kiko and I picked up three nail polishes that I think are cool for spring and summer.

Numbers: 355, 358, 236

oh, and I have a question for you: do you know where to get the China Glaze Hunger Games collection online with reasonable shipping charges?

Nail of the day - Minty green

As promised on my last outfit of the day post, here's the nail polish I was wearing that day. It is the number 345 from the brand Kiko. I don't think this brand is available outside of Europe but I might be wrong; and also I don't know if you can get it all over Europe. I know you can find Kiko stores in Italy, UK, Spain, France, Portugal and there might be some other countries, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I'm loving pastel colors and mint is one of my favorites. I own a few nail polishes that have this kind of tone, but a lot of people (around 8 really) have asked me about this one while I was wearing it.

Another good thing about Kiko is that it's really cheap. Their nail polishes retail for 2.50€ and it took me 2 coats to be completely opaque. I really like them.

Outfit of the night - Burgundy love

I love taking pictures of my outfits when I go out at night on weekends because I dress up a little more, I usually look nicer than weekdays; obviously I don't wear this kind of clothes to class because I think it's too much, but that is just my own opinion. I though I'd share with all of you last Saturday's outfit, so here it is.

Blazer - Zara
Tank top - Zara
Top - Forever 21
Skirt - Forever 21
Flats - Zara
Necklace - Bijou Brigitte

I just realized everything I wore was from Forever 21 and Zara. As you can tell, I love both a lot. And that skirt I actually bought in two different colors because it was only 5€, so it was a deal. Oh, and I don't know where my tights are from, but you can get this kind everywhere so it's ok. 

In a few days I will do a post on my nails that day, which I'm still wearing now (do you say wearing when it comes to nails? I don't know, cause you're not actually wearing them, if you know what I mean).
