I’ve collaborated with persona and some fellow international bloggers for a special little summer project and my first #BeachBodyNotSorry post of this year. :)

By the way: you can already see the same swimsuit (but totally different evening looks) at → Susie, → Iris and → Theodora. Don’t hesitate to check the hashtag #mypersonasummerday on Instagram to see who else is sharing her beach look and how you can spend your summer day with persona. ;)

As a huge fan of African prints, this swimsuit was my first choice and since we all fell in love with the same suit, I had to buy it myself cause there was none left (the other girls were faster, haha – it-piece alert!), but I had this idea in mind and didn’t want to change anything. But that’s fine because now I’ve got another swimsuit for you to win today! It’s not the same one but a great basic swimsuit with lovely details, which will hopefully make a girl very happy and ready for this summer! ♥

At least by buying something from my own money (I know, people always think that bloggers get everything for free, so that’s why I’m mentioning this today!), I’m totally allowed to say that this was a good investment (but believe me – I never lie when it comes to gifted products!). It is a very cool swimsuit, of high quality and perfect for women with fuller figures (and those who have more bust than me – so they can fill out the cups, which you can also remove if you don’t like them). ;) This is definitely a swimsuit for every day and it also looks great if you want to incorporate it into your evening look – and that’s just how we’ll change the topic from the daytime beach look to evening chic. My idea was to bring the print back in with the pochette and add a neutral color (I love this very special purple-ish brown!) with the dress.

The good thing about this dress is that it’s very light – that’s why it is perfect for summer, warm evenings, BBQs outside or rooftop pool parties. You can also wear it without a belt, I just went for it because I love to accentuate my waist, but it definitely looks great without it too and the loose fit is even more comfortable. ;)

One of you can now win this swimsuit worth €135 in size L (EU size 46/48). Especially if you’ve got a larger cup size (I’d say it probably fits best with a D or E cup), you’ll love this swimsuit. ♥ All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me where you’d like to wear it – by Friday, June 24. The winner will be announced here and in the comment section and should write me an e-mail to receive the swimsuit. Please don’t forget to read the terms and conditions1 at the end of this blog post!

My Body is not your Fetish by Lu zieht an.® | Photo: Rebecca Wunsch

Today’s topic is sexist behavior, fat as a fetish and my feelings towards it all. I know that my point of view may not be everyone else’s, but it is something that I want to write and express my thoughts about because with the ongoing growth, especially on my social media channels, the messages which I receive and which are obviously sexist come way more often than they should. Actually, there should be none. Because my body belongs to myself, even though I show it to you, to everyone on the Internet, and therefore also to many people who have a fat fetish. Being in public doesn’t mean that strangers are allowed to write me private messages on Instagram and/or Facebook asking for nudes (or foot photos or my old shoes), sending me pictures of their penises, proposing to me (of course, I’ll totally say yes and marry someone who didn’t even think of introducing himself – and forgot to check if I’m already married!) or asking to be my slave. My body is not their fetish and I’m not here to be a part of their inappropriate sexual behavior on the Internet.

“When life gives you lemons,…” print them on a dress and wear it! ;) At least that’s what came into my mind when I saw this dress and I’d like to believe that this is exactly what Marina Rinaldi did. :)
The first time I saw a lemon print on a dress was at Dolce & Gabbana and I was really enchanted, but I had to choose and went for the → “Poppies & Daisies” dress. Since then, I’ve seen these fruits on many other dresses of numerous brands and I think it might be one of the big summer trends this year. Good thing I found this blouse dress which is rather minimalistic (no greens in this pattern) and so easy to wear! It just needed an underdress because it’s slightly transparent – I chose a white one, but I think one in your own skin color or even a yellow one would be a lovely choice too!

After last week’s → casual chic style, this is yet another one that’s mixed – but this time I went for a casual hat instead of shoes (just because the “Rockstuds” are – again! – a perfect match to the dress, I mean, if there’s white and black, they are destined to be worn with it, right?). This dress can definitely be styled both ways too, casually (maybe also with the flatforms) or chicly (just leave the straw hat), so you have all possibilities. :) It’s also very light and comfy – a great companion for summer. :)

Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: Superga 2790 sneakers

This dress was love at first sight and I’m super happy that I got it, because it’s not only beautiful but also super comfy – especially thanks to its fabric, crêpe de chine, which feels so good on your skin in summer. :)
I totally fell in love with the shell print, it’s something very special and different and the different shades of blue look so cool with the beige and yellow highlights.
Since the dress is already a showstopper, I went for a casual chic style, wearing my flatform sneakers and a classic bag, and did a matching make-up with blue eyeliner. ;)
