Marble, copper, black and white are currently my favorite colors for everything (Yep, just called marble a color). You just can't go wrong with a little bit of each and they work really well together, too! Would I set up my entire apartment in marble, copper, black and white? You bet I would! I would combine them with plenty of natural wood, soft fabrics and some warm blankets and BOOM! Instant coziness. The perfect setting to enjoy the (hopefully) last days of winter really. I wanted to switch things up around our home for a long time anyway. It is too colorful, too disorganized, too much IKEA. Gradually, I want to change things to match my style more (and not the style of first-year-of-university-me), add a few nice things, and work with what is already there. The same goes for my closet which I cleaned out big time last month. And with big time I mean BIG time, like, half of it is gone. I'd like to add a few great pieces to my "old classics" that were allowed to stay. The awesome vagabond sneakers have already been ordered, as well as the copper coat hangers. I'm sure those will look very pretty with my dresses! And look at those marble earrings! Oh dear...

Looks like I'm sticking with the brown pencil outlines. This week I took the inspiration for the poses from various online shops I already had open on my laptop. Also, I tried (very hard, it's not easy) to draw the heads smaller to make the drawings look more realistic and lifelike. I have mixed feelings about the outcome but will keep it up for a while. Just to make sure what I want. So now without further ado, the outfits of week 7!

When I cut my hair a few weeks back I was thrilled about all the new possibilities that come with it. I have to admit that my first hair styling attempts took ages! I feel like I still have to figure things out that work for me, but I'm getting there. Practice is everything! And of course I did my research (I'm a scientist!) which means that I raided Pinterest for hair tutorials and inspiration and collected a few, that I want to try sometime. If you have a bob or a lob, too, these hair style ideas might be something you would want to try out!
1. easy waves
2. twisted half-updo
3. knot tie updo
4. ballet bun
5. braided back
6. fishtail braid half-updo
7. quick rolled braid updo
8. messy knotted bun with a braided band
9. mini twists
10. easy 1960's-inspired updo
I can't wait to try every single one out and make my hair look pretty and all. I love the messy knotted bun with the braided band! My hair lacks the texture to pull that style off, but maybe if I curl it first and with tons of hairspray ...?

One month of outfits is over! Well, technically it's almost two months and I'm obviously a bit behind on the drawings, but still... Here's the review of all my outfit drawings of January. You'll find that most outfits are from a Monday, Tuesday or Friday. That's because I'm working on those days and have to dress up and make my hair etc. On all the other days you'll probably find me in sweatpants, my boyfriends huge sweaters and with dirty hair. So, well, not really outfit drawing material. Some facts that you now know about my wardrobe and style:
- I own exactly one coat, two scarves and three pairs of shoes that I wear during winter
- I wear black pants a lot
- the ponytail is my best friend
- 90% of my socks are bright, colorful and probably have piggies or hearts on them
- I can't bring myself to put on a dress or a skirt when it's freezing cold outside. I just can't.
What I wore today drawings for the first week of February. The week where I got my hair cut (gasp!).
