The red star dress is all over Instagram. I see it everywhere and it looks like many influencers are wearing this red star dress for the summer. Lucky me got hands on this dress a while ago. It’s from Realisationpar, besides the red star dress they have many other dresses and tops. I would love to get some other colours of this red star dress. I mean the navy blue one for example looks amazing as well right?
my size and opinion
I am wearing this red star dress in size XS, however the next time I would go for an S. I just like it when it’s a bit looser, especially in summer when it can get quite warm. However, this dress is not for everyone since it’s 195 USD and yes that’s a lot of money. Especially since I have to admit it’s a really thin material and a bit see through, so you can only wear it in summer. So yes it’s a really nice dress and I’m absolutely in love with my red star dress and I am wearing it very often, but it’s maybe not affordable everyone.
Because the red star dress became so popular, many retailers started to ‘copy’ this look. I have seen some similar look-a-likes at ZARA, H&M, Pull & Bear and River Island. However, I’ve tried to find some example for you girls online. Otherwise take a look at one of those stores, this dress shape is really popular now and easy to find in current collections. Hope you can find a nice dress for yourself. Be fast though, cause those are selling out really quick. Feel free to do some more suggestions if you found better look-a-likes or ask me some questions below 🙂
My favourite time of the year has arrived again. Time for some nice SALE dresses shopping. I thought it would be nice to share some of the SALE dresses must-haves that I selected for you.I love to shop online at ASOS, Zalando, Ivyrevel. These shops have always nice SALE dresses in their collection. What are your favourite brands to shop SALE dresses online? Or do you prefer to go in the store? In Swedish ‘SALE’ is called ‘Rea’, it was something I had to get used to. Funny word for SALE right? How is it in your language?
must-have Trends for summer
The trend for this summer is definitely ‘flower’ patterns. In these SALE items you can also see that these are one of my favourite SALE dresses. Most of the must-have SALE dresses have a flower pattern. From short to long, it doesn’t matter. Just be sure you can wear them wherever you are on this world, according to the weather. Cause right now while I’m writing this blogpost it’s in Sweden around 19 degrees celsius and a grey and rainy day. So in the meantime I am here sipping on my coffee and dreaming about when to wear these dresses.
Besides the SALE period I have some discount codes available for you all. I don’t know if you have discovered my ‘discount codes’ page where I present all the codes that are currently active. At Ivyrevel you can get 20% off with the code NINAALINA20 and if you’re looking for a nice marble phone case, make sure you use my code nina.alina20 on the Richmond & Finch webshop.
Here are listed my current favourite SALE dresses must-haves on my favourite webshops like ASOS and Zalando. Be fast with ordering, cause the SALE items sell out very quickly. You don’t want to miss these opportunities.
Walking around in Stockholm the other day. Oh how I love this city. I’ve made some OOTD pictures and I’ve been experimenting with some new editing techniques. We went out for lunch for Burgers and Fries, funny thing I was wearing the Fries Before Guys tee from Colourful Rebel. Because honestly, we all have been there and sometimes just the food happiness is better than any guy in the world. What’s your favorite food that is sometimes even better than guys? Let me know in the comments!
I’m pretty happy about my new editing skills to be honest. I am experimenting all the time while I’m editing my pictures, and I really feel I am in a good flow now of how I want them to look. I am thinking of doing a tutorial, cause I’ve been receiving questions about my editing. Let me know it the comments if you would be interested in that!!
sweet potato fries truffle
We had some good burgers at Phill’s burgers 🙂 I’m obsessed with sweet potato fries and truffle mayo, yummy! It’s my new favourite thing, I will try to make some sweet potato fries at home soon. So far I didn’t really had much success with that, for some reason they never turn out crispy…
PS: Pink marble phone case from Richmond & Finch, 20% off with my code nina.alina20

Finally done with unpacking all the boxes in my new apartment. Jeeeeezzz, what a lot of work was that. I had so much stuff. You should have seen me driving up to here, with the car fully packed up untill the roof haha. Oops.. not sure if that’s even allowed, cause I couldn’t see anything anymore in that mirror in the middle. But yeah, we made it!!!! I was strolling through my new neighbourhood today and I absolutely love it here! Be ready for some real Stockholm spamming the upcoming days/weeks! 🙂
Who doesn’t love off-shoulder tops this summer? I am in love with this top. This outfit is from a dinner night. I combined it with casual black jeans and shoes from a lovely Spanish brand Unisa! I just got back from Greece and I enjoyed the dinners there so much. Pita Gyros is seriously my favourite thing at the moment, nommm. Back to reality now, finishing up my masters thesis and hopefully I will have my degree soon. Exciting!
Yesterday I arrived in Thessaloniki, YAY. I’ve been waiting for so long for some sun. The weather in Sweden has been terrible the last months, it’s May and it’s still winter there. When we got out of the airport it was immediately 27 degrees, so I was happy and looking forward to spend the rest of the week here. We are visiting my friends hometown. One of my best friends is from Thessaloniki, I’ve been to some Greek islands before but never on the main land. These pictures were taken yesterday during sunset. It was such a beautiful walk! Keep an eye on my Instagram and stories for more updates from this week!
Some of you have might seen it already on my Instagram. Daniel Wellington recently launched their new watch collection ‘The Classic Petite‘. I can see that this mesh trend is getting popular every day. These are my first DW pieces, and I have to say I am in love with Daniel Wellington’s quality and style. I think I would wear the rose gold one a lot this summer and keep the silver one as a more fall/winter look. And did you see their campaign with the one and only Kendal Jenner? Legends right? haha.
This accessory is a must for the upcoming season and will make your outfit definitely complete <3
Get it here! and get 15% off with the code: NINA.ALINA
This post is in collaboration with Daniel Wellington.
Finally the sun is out, YAY! Last weekend I was in Malmö sitting on a terrace enjoying the first sunny moments in Sweden. It’s so funny but actually ridiculous how the sun affects our mood. I felt instantly way more happy and had more energy than before. I think I need to get used to this dark winters in Sweden, or maybe escape the winters and be here over the summer..
I think enjoying the sun with a rose wine and some good food is one of my favourite activities. It just makes me happy and feel alive.
Trend alert!!! In case you’ve missed it.. Denim jackets are THE thing this spring/summer. I wanted one for so long already, but sometimes it’s just not the right color of denim. If you get what I mean haha… So I finally found this one when I was shopping with my mom in Copenhagen. It’s from Monki and you can check it out here., but there are so many nice ones available!
I am so happy spring has finally arrived in Sweden. I immediately started making more pictures, because it just looks WAYYYY better with some sun. Yes that sun ray is real and not edited, yay ! Tomorrow I’m going off to Malmö to enjoy some sun with a wine on a terrace 🙂 Keep an eye on my Instagram for some new sunny pictures!

Currently sitting at Arlanda airport writing this blogpost while looking at a sunny blue sky and airplanes that are passing by.
Life is beautiful!
So I spent my weekend in Stockholm again. This is the third time that I am visiting Sweden’s capital. This weekend was all just about chilling, good food, wine and watching the Melodifestivalen haha! I have this guilty pleasure for the Eurovision songfestival and last Saturday Sweden got their national finals. Seriously I loved all the song, you can really tell that the Swedes are good at making music. Well congrats to Robin Bengtsson, but I really liked Nano – Hold On (they ended up second).
The weather was amazing, finally spring is coming to Sweden. This OOTD look is from Saturday. I am obsessed with pink, so you might caught me wearing 50 shades of pink this spring 🙂 I really like Stockholm, I need to start thinking about where I am going to live after finishing my master in Lund. Stockholm is definitely one of my options. I have seriously no real plans yet and no idea what I am going to do. But I actually like that uncertainty. Just go with the flow. Who knows where life will bring me!
If you could move now anywhere, where would you go?
