CYBER SALES! MY NEVER ENDING WISH LIST..

When comes that time of the year you find yourself browsing again those items on your wish list – because out of budget or simply because the list is never ending – and this sounds quite familiar to me 😉 – you know the cyber sales time‘s arrived!

In case you didn’t know, now you do! 😉 .. and if you didn’t waste spend some of your time browsing your favourite shopping websites, now it’s about time to give it a glimpse!

Something I’ve learnt from my crazy shopping splurges through the years, is to decide in advance on my purchases, so that I am not frantically adding things to my online cart. Note to self. Tip of the day.. Just sayin’!

Today I am not going to list you long names of places where to shop, the web is plenty of that. The only one I have my eyes on at the moment is Shopbop which offer good deals up to 55% off on sales items, comparing to a lot of 20/30% you find on the web!

My best tip for the best time of the year this time of the year – major cyber sales time – is to stick to classic, especially go for knitwear, outwear and shoes! With so many items to choose from, it is important to have clear in mind what  you want and eventually need. It will be a much satisfying experience and you won’t feel overwhelmed.

I say this because essentials are always big focus of my outfits. Like the one I am showing you today. If you look at it, it is a mix of classic pieces which can really be worn and styled towards several season.

For all the rest of the year, there is high street shopping! 😉

HOW I EDIT INSTAGRAM PHOTOS

Lately I am receiving many messages asking how I edit Instagram photos. It’s time to share some tips with you here!

  nickyinsideout-facetune-instagram-photo-editing-vsco-blog-tips-edit-instagram-photos    

First of all, I never take blog and Instagram photos with my phone. Every photo is taken on my camera. At the moment I am using an Olympus Pen EPL-7 and I am pretty happy with it. My favourite prime lens is the 45mm because I am able to create a more intimate image. It is extremely important to have a good knowledge of your camera. This made a big difference for me.

    nickyinsideout-facetune-instagram-photo-editing-vsco-blog-tips-edit-instagram-photos  

When it comes to edit Instagram photos, the quality of your images is everything. After you’ve mastered your camera, my best tip is to make best friend with some editing apps. VSCO and FaceTune are the ones I normally use. VSCO will really help you to keep your photos all cohesive on your feed. It offers a huge numbers of different filters and it is really worth to sit back and find out which one you really like and feel that can optimise your Instagram feed. Something that is very important to me, is to create images that are immediately recognisable. At the moment I am combining two different filters together in order for my images to be unique.

After all my photos are processed with VSCO, the final touch is given by FaceTune. I use it to adjust the light, in my case to make the photos darker but it works the same way if you like your photos lighter and whiter. FaceTune is also great to emphasise the contrast on your details or correct little imperfections.

It might sound like a lot of work but once you have mastered these two app, it doesn’t take that much time! Finally, what really made a difference for me, is following my gut. If you truly like and believe in what you are going to publish, also the community, big or small, that you’ve built up on Istagram, is going to like it and engage with you. Just stay focused on creating the type of images you love and stay true to yourself in terms of content.

RED TREND! ARE YOU WEARING IT ALREADY?

Are you wearing the red trend already?

Until this fall, red was considered the colour for the ones who dare. A colour many of us would rather avoid wearing because so attention grabbing. Not anymore! The red trend is going strong this fall and we don’t need to stay away from it anymore! Actually, we need at least one red sweater in our wardrobe this winter! This is coming from someone who normally tends to stay away from bright colours.. So, how do we make sure this red trend is going to fit the rest of our wardrobe?

I am combining my Tommy Hilfiger red sweater with a leather skirt for a rock chick look but I am also going to style it with vintage denim and block heels. Any red sweater would look really cool with denim, just be careful you do not mix and match with other warm tones or too classic cuts.. Just keep it simple and casual! Also, if red doesn’t go with your skin tone or really you can’t bear it and makes you stay away from the mirror.. red ankle boots are a great choice too this season!

I literally can’t tell you how much I love red right now between all the fall/winter 2016 trends and micro trends this is one of my favourite. When it comes to trends, which are often temporary for the season, I try not to pack my wardrobe with too many items. I think one good one to rotate with different looks is the way to go: enough to feel fashion updated and enough to put it to rest when you’ve seen too much of it already.

And what about you? Will you dare to wear or you’re doing that already?

MY FAVOURITE COAT CHOICES THIS WINTER

Baby it’s cold outside! This is the period of the year we start thinking of which winter coat we want to see ourselves through the cold months ahead. Of course the outfit underneath is still very important (without counting the early morning coffee run in our PJs) but the coat is all we show all day every day, at least for the next 3 months or probably 5 if you live in The Netherlands..

The fun part is to pick out which trend will keep us warm this season!

The one I am wearing today is from French Connection. It’s the perfect fall coat! I am loving the short length for a casual look, the trendy frayed edging and loose fit.

  coat-outwear-trend-a/w-2016-winter coat  

Obviously, my idea of staying cozy and warm doesn’t end here. Actually it just started! I rounded up for you my favourite outwear trends of this winter season:

  • Faux Fur, adore this comfy volume, especially in the light colour. This is destinated to become one of the most coveted winter trends this A/W ’16.
  • Shearling Moto Jacket, for an outwear game strong! A tough-luxe take on the biker staple.
  • Menswear Inspired Long Coat, for the love of classics, the double-breasted style is back this season. My favourites colours are the grey, green and navy. To be super trendy, H&M also offers a low budget one which I love too.
  • Puffy Jacket, bff of the snowy days! Finally our moms won’t be worried we will be cold this winter and for once we won’t let her ‘down’ 😉

The thought of colder days is not that bad, after all.
