Yay, we already made it through the first month of 2018 and it was a super exciting month for me. Lots of new things, the first steps of my → Single Bucket List have been made and right now, I’m pretty sure that 2018 could be a great year (ask me again later, haha!). :)
Hands up – who loves cupcakes as much as I do? :) I’m so thankful we got to shoot a comfy outfit in Ansbach’s lovliest café and cupcake shop, “Danys Cupcakery” (Kronenstraße 2a). Only cruel fact: it was closed on that Monday when we had our photo shoot so I couldn’t try Dany’s famous cupcakes, but that was kind of helpful so we had the whole store for us. I’m pretty sure that if Dany had opened her store on that day, we would have had no place to shoot plus you could have found me behind dozens of cupcakes and not take a good picture at all (cause I look pretty weird eating on photos, → here’s an example of me eating a cookie). I’m definitely coming back to try all of them, okay Dany? :)
So, this cute and cozy location called for a matching outfit – and there’s nothing better than some light pink, right? When I saw this sweater, it was love at first sight. I haven’t been much fond of those ruffles sleeves before but these are so amazing (even though they’re not super practical, especially when you want to wear a jacket, but the sweater is pretty warm so you probably won’t need a cardi or coat). It is actually from Ted Baker’s lounge wear collection and therefore supposed to be worn at home (who the hell would wear something like that at home? I wear my pajamas all day at home, haha!) and to be honest, I found it kind of hard to combine for myself. It wouldn’t look good with jeans, with black pants, with anything, except these cashmere pants (which are about three sizes too large but nevermind ;)). And since it has kind of a boxy cut, I needed to wear it tucked into my pants. That was the only way to make it look perfect for myself. But I’ll keep trying. There are actually matching pants from Ted Baker, but I’m sure my huge bottom won’t fit into it so I didn’t even try and order them. :D I have to see if there’s a way to style it with a skirt, so I can show you a different look with this beauty.
After all those super cozy winter looks, here’s a more extravagant and risky one. ;) It’s been almost 10 years since the Jimmy Choo x H&M collection launched in 2009 and I’m still wearing this jumpsuit from time to time. It has become a real classic in my closet and I’ll never give it away until it falls apart. :) It’s such a wonderful piece that keeps bringing me joy and all those sexy feels!
You’ve already seen loads of “all black” looks here on the blog and it’s something I really wear a lot but this time, I added something special: a blazer! I really don’t wear them often, unfortunately, cause most of them don’t suit me as well as this one. I’m pretty sad that Murek Hamburg is not on the market anymore because they created so many beautiful clothes and this blazer is one of them. By the way: it’s not as shiny as in the pictures – we’ve tried some special edgy editing for these photos! Somehow, this styling asks for it, right? I love that dark look. :)
The shoes are new and directly from Brazil – my mom got them for me when she went there last time in October. These are my first kitten heel shoes and the thing is, I was always afraid to wear them cause I believed that those short little heels look weird on me, especially cause of my plus-sized body. But here’s the proof that they don’t look weird at all. :) It’s definitely best to try things before refusing them. ;)
So this is an idea I came up with when I realized I’ve got plenty of time to do the things I really like or always wanted to do but couldn’t because my partner wasn’t interested in them. Of course, there’s no need for an explicit single bucket list, since you can do it whenever, wherever and with whomever you want. You don’t need to be single nor in a relationship to create those kinds of lists but it’s kind of nice to have a list to check off, plus: I’ve got some plans for 2018 which I really hope I can turn into reality.
Naturally, I checked the internet for suggestions for my bucket list – the typical “single bucket lists” come with ideas like flirt a lot, drink a lot, kiss strangers, have one-night-stands and party cause you’re free. I may sound a little boring right now, but with almost 28, I don’t feel like doing all those things you do and mostly regret with 16. ;) I want to collect actual memories that make me smile, not think about hangovers and wrong choices of men (and those are too easy to make these days – that’s what I already realized while checking the common dating apps). I want to do something for me, spend some great “me time” and become even more of that new person I introduced you to already. Of course, I’ll enjoy flirting and hopefully have some nice dates and maybe, in the end, find someone that stays with me – but this list is not about finding a new boyfriend. It’s about me being the best company of myself. And that’s what matters. ♥
I decided to share my bucket list (above, you can find a picture of my first draft) with you and update (expand or check off) it as often as possible, that’s why it will always be available to have a look at. ;) And who knows, maybe I’ll share the stories I experience with it with you. ;)
