Aaaah, the 70s – I’ve actually never been a great fan of the typical style of the 70s, but since last summer, I’ve started to like a few pieces that fit perfectly into this decade. It’s fun to style yourself in different ways and give everything a chance instead of always saying “no” when it’s not your usual style. So here I am, wearing → this dress from the current Anna Scholz for sheego collection, the second piece of my editorial “trilogy”, and it’s the dress that was most difficult for me to style – just because I’m not used to the cutouts, the paisley print and that whole 70s flair. But (and that’s a huge one): I really love it! I kind of feel like a modern hippie diva and adding my own accessories to the dress was lots of fun. :)

You all know me, I’m always up for a chic look, so after → last time, when I showed you how casual I can be, here’s an elegant version with another lovely dress that’s just perfect for summer. I had to take it one size up for a nicer fit, so I’m wearing a EU46, which I made a bit more formfitted with a small belt that works perfectly with my platform heels. ;) I actually wanted to wear a cognac-colored hat, but unfortunately I don’t own one, so I had to go for black, but I think it’s actually a nice contrast, especially because it’s a straw hat, which makes it not too heavy as the only black piece in this look.

I’ve teamed up again with sheego for another series around the latest and current Anna Scholz for sheego collection. You can already find all pieces online and I’ll show you my three favorites of it on a monthly basis.

Today’s favorite (and my number one of them) is the → maxi dress with a blue and white feather print. Luckily, sheego offers petite lengths for tiny Human McNuggets like me, so I chose the slightly shorter version of the dress to wear the actual length.

I’ve created a casual style, wearing suede fringe espadrilles, but of course this dress also looks great with high heels, especially wedges or platform sandals for a kind of hippie style.
I also added a belt in order to accentuate my waist, and chose a few accessories in black and blue to complete the look. Even though I really adore elegant and sophisticated looks, this is probably one of my favorite casual looks ever, and because the pieces I chose for my editorials are only borrowed for the shootings, I will definitely get this one again so I can wear it more often during spring and summer.
By the way: it’s made of soft and elastic jersey and the fabric isn’t too thin, so it falls very prettily, but it’s still light and loose enough to be worn without sweating when it’s warm outside. ;) That’s one of the features I really love about Anna Scholz dresses.

Summer’s over and so is my → #BeachBodyNotSorry special that I have been doing this season. It’s been a lot of fun to share my beach looks with you and it definitely was a matter close to my heart to encourage you all to just don’t give a s*** and head over to the next beach or pool and wear whatever you want, whether it’s a bikini or a swimsuit or you still prefer to cover up a little more with a beach dress or towel. Everything’s okay as long as you feel great. And you should never – I repeat: NEVER – make this dependent on others. Because YOU decide how you feel, how you look, who you want to be – not strangers. Not even your friends or your family. Your body – your rules. And I want to add: your life – your rules.

Coming back to the topic of today’s blog post: in this little recap, I want to show all of my beach looks again and add a few pictures I took on “real” beaches in Brazil during my vacation (a post about it is already in the making, so stay tuned!). And to let you know: it was great. Nobody looked at me in a bad way (at least I didn’t catch anybody watching) and even if – I didn’t care. Because I went to the beach to have fun and I definitely did. I had a great time at several beaches, crowded ones, remote ones, with my family or with complete strangers. Nobody treated me badly because of my body, nobody even mentioned it. All I got was compliments on my beautiful beach wear, on the new bikini I bought in Rio, on what I brought to show off at the famous and not-so-famous beaches. Nobody called me fat or ugly, I never felt like a stranded whale and nobody gave me the feeling that this is not where I’m supposed to be. Because in the heat, that’s where everybody is allowed to be – refreshing oneself in the sea, sunbathing on the beach and maybe even sharing an ice-cold beer with friends.

I really hope that I could at least change one person’s mind and help her to be able to go to the beach without being afraid of being insulted, be it by looks, laughter or words. You’re better than someone else’s small-minded brain that’s not capable of accepting diversity. And you should never listen to these people.

Never forget: everyBODY is beautiful, even if it’s not your own personal taste how someone looks – it’s not up to you to define beauty for the world and it’s not up to you to judge others. And you should never ever feel sorry about your (beach) body.

Feel Glamorous.

Feel Glamorous.

ENI’m very happy to announce that I’m Palmolive’s blogger testimonial for their new → “Feel Glamorous” shower gel – that’s why today I want to share some of my little secrets for a glamorous feeling and introduce you to the new shower gel.

Maybe, some might think that it doesn’t really belong here, especially because I usually write about luxury cosmetics. For me, shower gel is something like make-up remover: you need it on a daily basis and in the end it’s a consumer and disposable product. Still, it has to be of good quality, be nice to your skin and make you feel good – but it’s definitely a product that doesn’t have to be extremely expensive. My favorite shower gel was discontinued about two years ago and since then I’ve been switching shower gels every time a new bottle was empty. I kind of feel like I could stick to this one, as it’s not only a shower gel but also contains very fine peeling grains, which brings a nice feeling and at the same time glamour to your daily shower time. :)

DEIch freue mich sehr, euch heute mitzuteilen, dass ich Palmolives Blogger-Botschafterin für das neue → “Feel Glamorous”-Duschgel bin – und deshalb teile ich heute meine kleinen Geheimnisse für ein glamouröses Feeling und stelle euch das neue Duschgel vor.

Vermutlich werden manche denken, dass das gar nicht so recht hierher gehört, vor allem da ich normalerweise über Luxuskosmetik schreibe. Für mich ist Duschgel aber etwas wie Make-up-Entferner: man braucht es täglich und gleichzeitig ist es eben auch ein Wegwerf- bzw. Verbrauchsprodukt. Trotzdem muss es eine entsprechend gute Qualität haben, gut zur Haut sein und ein angenehmes Gefühl hinterlassen – aber dafür muss es eben nicht superteuer sein. Mein Lieblingsduschgel wurde leider vor ca. 2 Jahren aus dem Sortiment genommen, seitdem habe ich jedes Mal, wenn eine Flasche leer war, ein neues ausprobiert. Dieses Mal hab’ ich aber sogar das Gefühl, dass ich bei diesem hier bleiben könnte, denn es ist nicht einfach nur ein Duschgel, sondern enthält auch ganz feine Peelingkörnchen, die aus dem täglichen Duscherlebnis etwas Besonderes und somit auch Glamouröses machen. :)
