In cooperation with Phylyda. 

I must admit – after correcting the colors and sharpness of today’s pictures, somehow, the legs ended up with some weird texture. Don’t worry, though – I didn’t retouch anything and you can obviously see my cellulite! With that in mind, I kindly welcome you to this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project! :)

I already got to know about Phylyda last year but there was no time for a collab left. I’m so happy that we managed to do something for this season and this also means that by now, I already own three bikinis from Phylyda, since I escalated at the pop-up store back in April. No “oops” from me because these pieces are worth every cent and their “mix & match” ability is level 100 – every combination looks just amazing! Lydia, the founder of Phylyda, asked me to shoot this combo and I happily said yes, crossed a fence, climbed down many rocks and positioned myself at the Elbe at low tide for a photo shoot that made many people stare (of course, it was so super sunny on that Sunday, so everybody was out for a walk…). And I loved it! Best way to start a new season of my favorite project. Can’t wait to do more of these shoots and I hope you’re also super excited to see more of them!

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. ;)

Dress: Marina Rinaldi
Jumpsuit: H&M Trend
Flatforms: Superga “Cotropew”
Sunglasses: Ray Ban “Round”
Earrings: Chanel
Choker: Jennifer Fisher
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: ASOS jumpsuit,
Superga sneakers

And yet another piece I’ve styled differently – you know the stripy piece as a dress and some loved it, others hated it (especially on social media), but I must say: I absolutely adore it. And as you can see, you can also wear it as a kind of blouse jacket.

I wanted to throw in a casual look again – for that, I went for my super basic black jumpsuit (which is dead now cause it’s pretty ripped between my legs, but you can’t see it because I’m wearing black Spanx underneath – but I’ll need a new one now…) and the Superga flatforms I got last year. This look is easily styled and just as easy and comfy to wear. Since the dress is made of silk, it’s a perfect piece for summer, despite the long sleeves, because the fabric is so wonderfully lightweight. I truly love silk, even though it crumples pretty bad.

Yeah, I’m currently doing a few series, I guess. There’s not only one piece missing in my Marina Rinaldi x Stella Jean trilogy but I also still had this amazing crop top from H&M’s last designer collaboration in my closet waiting for spring – so here we are! :)

Even though we’ve been fighting a lot for plus size acceptance (in fashion), crop tops are still an issue. I totally understand if it’s simply not someone’s taste to show your tummy, but it’s also important to accept if someone wants to wear cropped clothes – and yes, this also includes fat women. Because there’s no such thing as “this is only reserved for skinny girls”. ;)

I liked many pieces of the collection with Kenzo but this print was my favorite, that’s why I bought two pieces with it – this crop top and, as you already know, → this dress. I’ll definitely be wearing the dress again this spring/summer because it’s so light and easy to wear, but this top is also super cool and will be a great addition to any other skirt or jeans. We already had a few warm days here but it’s currently super disgusting outside, rainy and cold, and I really hope that the sun comes back as soon as possible – I can’t take this bad weather anymore!
