This fall, I’m starting a new collaboration with C&A – I can’t wait to show you the whole exciting project which was shot and filmed in Düsseldorf at the end of August. It’s super cool and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of it! I’ll tell you more about it all in an extra blog post as soon as I receive the pictures and videos! :)

I’ll also be showing you a few looks from their plus-size collection through fall and winter and I hope you’re going to love it as much as I do. These looks will definitely be a little bit more casual than usual, since fall and winter are very cozy and comfy and I’m pretty sure you’ll like to see some everyday options, right?

Today, I’m starting with a casual chic style with lots of blue. It’s kind of unusual to see me wearing regular jeans since I usually go for skinny jeans but I like the loose style in combination with the long cardigan and the tunic, which I tucked into the pants cause it would’ve been to much of that “layering style” and therefore not very flattering – even though many people will tell fat women that this is the best way to “conceal” your body, but truth is: you’ll look just way bigger than you are if you just layer loose and mostly oversized shapes! Your body will get lost and hidden and you’ll just look like a sack of clothes. So here’s my tip: there’s nothing wrong with showing your waistline and this is easy to do when wearing pants under a cardi – just tuck your shirt into the pants. I know many are scared to show their belly outline but there’s no need to hide it. It’s just a belly! :)

Pretty late (this was shot in May) but better late than never – I’ve styled a boho festival look for sheego, using one of the Anna Scholz lace dresses of the last collection. Instead of wearing it with the white dress underneath, I went for a colorful bikini – since it’s never wrong to wear a bikini for a festival (you could get wet, right?) and it’s a very easy yet fun styling because of the see-through dress. You can always change the look of it by wearing something different underneath. Of course, that’s not an everyday look, especially because of the creative make-up, but it’s maybe an inspiration for one of the last open-air festivals or a nice idea for a look to end summer with a boom. ;)

The white lace dress from Anna Scholz for sheego is your perfect companion for festivals and summer and can easily be worn without the actual opaque dress underneath – the lighter the better! :) A straw hat not only protects your scalp from sunburns but is also a perfect accessory and the rough boots round off your boho style.

But I want to focus on my make-up today – as you already know it from Coachella & Co., creative looks are very popular at such music events. You can be as crazy as you want, from a glitter overload over flash tattoos up to colorful little rhinestones which you apply to your body – you can do everything! For my look, I’ve orientated myself towards my bikini which (unfortunately a little bit invisible under that amazing white lace dress) has a colorful parrot feather print on it and adorned it with white dots. Usually, the festival girls wear them diagonally over their brows – I wanted to do it differently and I think it’s pretty cool like that! For some glitter I applied a holographic eye liner over the black one – this creates some major blue sparkling and rounds off the whole look. Since the eyes are already the highlight of the look, the lips stay more natural with a brown shade – and you’re good to go with your boho style which is perfect for every festival.

It’s been some time! But I’m back with a new outfit. I hope to be able to finally shoot a little more but I hope you can still be a bit patient since I’m still here with only a handful of my clothes. Of course, I brought my all-time favorite with me – the “Modern Love” jumpsuit from Beth Ditto! You’ve already seen it a few times on the blog and I know it’s nothing new but this time it’s a very basic look which I upgraded with a special make-up (Urban Decay’s → “Naked Heat” palette is amazing, you should check it out!).

I wore this look for a ladies’ night out with my mom, the best date one can wish for and we had some delicious sushi. :) I hope you’re all enjoying the last days of summer to the fullest! I’ll try to shoot another #BeachBodyNotSorry look as soon as possible to finish this year’s project. I hope it was enough. :) And I hope that you all spent lots of time out in the sun, showing your bare arms and legs and your happy bellies in bikinis and swimsuits! Soon it’s time to cuddle up in warm clothes again…

I’m finally able to show you another #BeachBodyNotSorry look – this time in cooperation with sheego. I wrote → an article for their magazine in which you can find some tips about confidence at the beach. Since the article is in German, I translated my three tips for you:

1 • Yes, people will be watching you. But maybe they’re not even thinking badly about you? They may think your bikini/swimsuit looks nice, maybe they think you’re a beautiful person, or maybe they’re asking themselves why they didn’t dare to go to the beach like this yet. Sure, there will be some of them thinking very bad things about you, but especially as long as they’re not saying anything, you really shouldn’t care!

2 • If you already know that you won’t feel good in a bikini, there’s no sense in forcing you to wear it. People will notice that you’re not happy. I’m sure you’ll feel better wearing a tankini or swimsuit and if that’s still too naked for your own taste, a cute pareo/beach towel is a great and handy idea to give you a little more confidence – and you can wrap them in so many different ways! You can find a lot of tutorials on YouTube.

3 • The sun is shining, it’s hot outside, everybody wants to cool down and have fun. And that’s what everybody’s concerned about – you may think that everybody’s watching you and making up their minds about you and even gossip secretly or say something very unpleasant that the whole beach could hear, but the truth is: everybody’s so much self-involved that the majority of people around you absolutely don’t care what you’re wearing and how you look. In the end, unfortunately (!) every woman at the beach is thinking the same and doesn’t want to make a bad impression. There’s no space left for a single thought about you and your body at the beach.
But I really need to add to this point that I find it really sad that we’re so much fixated on pleasing others – this should never be our priority number one, especially not at the beach! Enjoy your life and summer!

P.S.: I’ve still got some beachwear here to be photographed! If you’re a photographer in the Erlangen/Nürnberg area, please drop me a line, I’m currently looking for new people to work with me! :)
