Check print, tartan or plaid, call it what you want, but it’s the biggest thing for autumn! These prints are of course classic staples every autumn and winter, but this year they are bigger than ever. I absolutely love these prints and I’m super excited to see this trend everywhere! I’ve defenitly already bought a lot of check print items and you’ll be seeing them in posts soon!
As for this dress, I think it’s my favorite dress ever! It’s classy, but very fashionable and ‘trendy’. It also gives me some major Burberry vibes and who doesn’t love that!
The white boots may not be your thing, I get that. I’m obsessed with them though… I’ve been looking for white booties like these since last year and I finally found. they were the last pair left, on sale in an H&M in Valencia. I guess having big feet comes in handy in Spain! White accessories have been a trend for a while and I you look around in any store, you’ll at least see one pair of white boots. I have a few favorite pairs.
These if you want to splurge or these and these if you’re clumsy and you’ll mess up white shoes in a month (me).

First things first, Happy New Year! I hope you have a wonderful year and that you’ll realize all your dreams and wishes.
One of my resolutions for 2018 is posting more on my blog. I know I say this all the time, but I’ve now put a target for myself. At least post twice a month on here. I love writing and taking pictures as a way of expressing myself and inspiring. If you want to see more of me, you can follow me on Instagram. I’ve been posting a lot on there and really like it so take a look at odemode_.
Now, on to my outfit. Today was one of the first nice and sunny days in what feels like months, but realistically the first day with some sunshine in weeks. I got a bit overexcited and wore jeggings with sneakers. A warm pair or boots wouldn’t have been so bad either, because it was still sooooo cold! But, every time I wear this sweater I’m a happy kiddo. The sassiness of the sleeves, I’m in love! I must admit, I have a little sassy sleeve obsession… I know there also very ‘trendy’ right now, so I haven’t invested in a really expensive item. This one is from Forever 21 , but H&M also have some cute ones like this one or this one, which i also have.
It’s been a while since I’ve brought this bag anywhere, but now I know why i loved it so much. This Fendi 2jours bag is so practical. Not too big, not too small and a great neutral color. The exact color isn’t available anymore, but these are also beautiful neutrals.

No matter the season, animal prints are always in some form on trend. Snake- , zebra- , tiger- or leopard print, we’ve all seen them or worn those prints.
The statement leopard coat has kind of evolved for trend piece to a ‘classic’. If you buy a quality leopard coat you can wear it for years without looking outdated. I have to admit, this year is definitely the year of leopard though. The print is evolving from statement coat to skirts, to pants, to scarfs and many more items. Think of an item and it’s available in leopard print. Here are a few examples of pieces that I absolutely love.
These shorts, this scarf, these pants, this dress and these boots are all just too cute!
I must admit, I’ve also stocked up on this print quite a lot. If you really like the look of this trend, but aren’t sure if it’s for you, I would recommend starting of with an easy, affordable piece like a scarf. I just jumped in the deep end and bought this coat last year as my first piece and I don’t regret it!
I still love and wear mine a lot so I you ask me, it’s a winner!
I did go for a mix of leopard and tiger with this outfit, by wearing my coat with this beautiful green Kenzo sweater. It’s in my favorite color and i’m so happy that I found this cute green skirt to match and to complete my look!
