Oh, the easy summer looks – how I missed them! :) I’m so glad summer’s back (well, not today while writing this post, it’s raining, but I guess that’s part of living in Germany)!

Today’s outfit kind of reminds me a bit of the country style and I really love how it’s super casual but sexy at the same time. I think the top is actually supposed to be worn with the laces falling down, but I thought it’d be cool to wear them around my neck and I really like the outcome.

And since this look is very cropped, you can say “hi” to my lovely little Dexcom sensor. ;) I promised to not retouch my pictures and not remove my diabetes stuff from my cyborg body because it’s a part of me (the pump is clipped to the bum bag of my jeans), so here it is. ;) That’s also what I meant when I wrote about realness in my last “Private” post. ;)

I promised you more pants on the blog – here we are again with some new jeans! Even though you already know these ones in gray from → this post. I love these jeans so much and I’m happy that I received the blue version too (this time normal length because the petite length wasn’t available and EU size 46 because it’s super elastic and my gray one is already pretty loose!) so I can wear jeans more often. ;)

Good news for one lucky girl: I’m giving away a denim package with sheego, including three pairs of jeans of the winner’s choice!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is answer the following question in the comments by February 28 (terms and conditions at the end of this blog post):

“How do you like to wear your jeans?”

Here’s my answer: as you’ve probably noticed, jeans are still not that typical for me, even though I do wear them more often for running errands – but not as an actual outfit. Anyways, I prefer the casual version or some kind of mix like this one here. And shhh – the next outfit on the blog will also be a jeans look, even more casual than this one. ;) And with my new hair cut!

The winner is Viola Zucker – congrats!

I’m getting a bit experimental with new things at the moment – this blouse is something very different. I’ve never worn a long blouse, just because I don’t like it for my figure. I really need to emphasize my waist and long blouses are normally cut extremely wide and straight so it looks like I’m just wearing a formless sack. This one is very special, not only because of the side cuts but also because of the front detail. It first left me kind of desperate because when it arrived here, I had to figure out how the knot detail had to be tied. Also, I’m wearing it tied around the waist – because I think it’s actually supposed to fall down in the front, but you can also wear it like this. So this is how I made it fitted at the waist and therefore work for me. :) Anyways: I love it. This time, I went for a casual but rather sexy look with high heels and a harness at the cleavage. Next time, I want to try a look with sneakers or so. By the way, I didn’t iron the blouse on purpose because I like the wrinkled look (and the fabric is pretty sensitive so it gets crinkled anyways). ;)

ENBe prepared – this is a shoe love story. :)
When I first saw these beauties as a preview on → Sue’s Instagram account, I knew that these shoes would be mine. I’d do everything to get them as soon as they were available. I waited and waited, checked the Nike online store for news on when they’d be released and already phoned a few sneaker stores one week before their launch to know if I’d be able to even reserve a pair (of course, I wasn’t the only one who had fallen in love at first sight – the Internet was full of love declarations and I was seriously afraid that I’d miss them). But no, no reservations.
The release date was first postponed, then moved back to the original day and so I tried it again, gave the Nike Store here in Hamburg a call and they had already arrived on exactly that day, a few days before the official start. Lucky me! :)
I’m pretty sure I’ve never made it downtown that fast and have never tried on a pair of shoes that quickly – after three minutes, they were mine. And that’s how a non-sneaker person became a sneaker person. :) Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m still a high heels lover (as a little dwarf, they’re just better for me, making me look taller than I am and creating loooong legs – and actually more my style, sneakers mostly just don’t look good with dresses), but I’ve definitely been wearing sneakers more often since I got them. :)

DEIch warne euch vor – das ist eine Schuh-Liebesgeschichte. :)
Als ich diese Hübschen als Preview bei → Sue auf Instagram gesehen hab’, wusste ich, dass die Schuhe mir gehören würden. Ich würde alles dafür tun, um sie zu bekommen, sobald sie erhältlich sind. Ich habe also gewartet und gewartet, den Nike Onlineshop immer wieder gecheckt, um zu erfahren, wann sie rauskommen, hab’ sogar diverse Sneaker-Shops angerufen, um zu fragen, ob ich sie reservieren kann (ich war natürlich nicht die Einzige, die sich auf den ersten Blick verliebt hat, und hatte deshalb wirklich Angst, sie zu verpassen). Aber nein, keine Reservierungen.
Dann wurde der Release-Termin verschoben, wieder zurück auf den ursprünglichen Tag gesetzt und so hab’ ich es dann einfach nochmal versucht, beim Nike Store hier in Hamburg angerufen und erfahren, dass sie genau an dem Tag schon angekommen waren – früher als geplant. Glückliche Lu! :)
Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass ich noch nie so schnell in der Stadt war und auch noch nie so ratzfatz ein Paar Schuhe anprobiert hab’ – nach drei Minuten waren sie mein. Und so wurde aus einem Nicht-Sneaker-Menschen ein Sneaker-Mensch. :) Sind sie nicht wunderschön? Natürlich bin ich immer noch ein großer Fan von High Heels (als kleiner Gartenzwerg sind hohe Schuhe einfach besser für mich, mit denen ich etwas größer aussehe und die mir laaaange Beine zaubern – und irgendwie passen sie ja doch mehr zu meinem Stil, denn Sneaker schauen zu Kleidern meistens nicht sonderlich gut aus), aber seit ich die hier habe, trage ich eindeutig öfter mal Sneaker. :)
