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!

From → cozy and casual directly to → the first LBD of the year – and yet another kind of business look, I guess. It’s probably because of the glasses, but whenever I take pictures with them, I feel like I’m ready to be a super important secretary. ;) I’m pretty sure that by adding more office-appropriate shoes (thinking about not-that-high, maybe suede or at least not patent leather pumps) and a blazer (maybe even a colorful one if you want to go for black with a twist), this is definitely a dress that can be worn to work. Even though it’s amazing as a classic LBD and also pretty versatile – it can look more playful thanks to the polka dots, but also very chic and classy if you add a belt, some fancy heels and maybe drop the glasses (I’m always a contact lens girl when it comes to special occasions). ;)

The dress is an amazing “new in” from Scarlett & Jo and also → available in black and white (black skirt, upper part is white), even though I must say that I absolutely prefer the all-black version. ;) Can’t go wrong with an LBD, right? ;) Here, I’m wearing my usual UK 16 again because of the bodycon fit and I’m happy to say that it fits perfectly as always. ;)

P.S.: The → S&J SALE is ending these days and if you want to get one of the amazing pieces you should hurry. There’s one of my favorites, for example, the → “Tall Wrap Dress” which you know from → this post! ;)

As you can see, the first outfit post of the year is a very special one! Today marks the 8th birthday of this blog and I’m more than proud of this! It’s incredible how many amazing things happened in all these years – just because of my little space on the Internet. I’ve not only been present online but also in magazines, on the radio and on TV – and I’m so happy to be able to share my #bodypositivity message with the world: everyBODY is beautiful.

Of course, this has been kind of a journey for myself too because I hadn’t started the blog with this message, even though I’ve never had a problem with me and my body and it would have been a great idea to make this the main topic of the blog right from the beginning. Every time I’m asked when and why I started blogging, I answer the same: “There was no intention, I was sick in bed that day and kind of bored. I had already been blogging for two years and found out that there were also blogs (not only diary blogs) about certain topics – so I found the first fashion blogs and wanted to do one myself and decided to share my outfits with the world.”

Never ever would I have thought that this day in bed would bring me so much joy (yeah, and also some pretty frustrating days – but we already talked about this), so many amazing experiences and – of course: you! It’s incredible how many you are, from all around the globe. And I’m so thankful to be able to reach you, to sometimes even change your world. Receiving your messages, not only the comments but also e-mails and even letters, is overwhelming. Reading that you tried on a dress for the first time (or for the first time in years) or that you finally went to the beach wearing a bikini and had fun instead of fear or that you saw that it’s okay to love yourself “even though” (I don’t really like to say it because it seems like it’s not okay, but it is!) you’re fat and everyone else tells you it’s not – I have no words to tell you how great that feels. How happy it makes me to have such a positive impact on your lives. To be a role model. I’m proud and that’s why I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥

If there’s one wish I have (without the huge birthday cake and blowing out the candles) and may tell you: please continue to write me. I love your feedback, I love knowing that I’m being read and heard. Blogging is not a one-way thing, it’s all about interaction and being a community. So please: whenever you feel the need to say something – just do it and leave a comment or write me an e-mail or letter. I promise that I’ll always try my best to answer. I must confess that I don’t answer every comment on Facebook and Instagram (sorry about that, but everyone asking me obvious things like “where’s the dress from?” even if it’s already tagged in the picture just has to have a look up here!), but since the blog is my actual number one, here’s where you can tell me everything and count on a reply.

P.S.: I’m a bad giveaway maker, but since this is a very special occasion and it is the first time after 8 years that I really remembered the date (gosh, I’m so bad with dates and birthdays, it’s a shame…) – don’t worry, of course there’ll be a little blogiversary giveaway. Promise!

Skirt: Marina Rinaldi

After my vintagey and super elegant Christmas look, which is the perfect choice for an opulent and glamorous party, today’s look is a bit more modern yet sophisticated and I guess if I were going to a party, this is what I’d wear. But since we already celebrated Christmas with our families at home earlier this month, tomorrow I’ll be spending a cozy and cuddly evening with my husband on the sofa – I’ll cook a nice dinner and we’ll watch a movie. And yeah – this look would be way too overdressed for it! ;)

You may remember → the stunning dress I wore at the Marina Rinaldi event at the styling session. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available anymore, but this skirt is a perfect substitute! Black and gold is such an amazing classic and still always a modern choice – depending on how you style it. I wanted it to be a young and fresh look and that’s why I went for the following accessories: The belt – the elastic band with the patent and black silver front (mixing gold and silver isn’t a taboo anymore!) dresses it all down a little bit, makes it look cool and a bit more casual. The sandals – flats aren’t the obvious choice but definitely comfy enough and a great choice if they’re as embellished as mine. Flats don’t always mean casual! The earrings – these are probably the most important part of my accessory choice because they are kind of unexpected since the bamboo hoop style is a bit more hip hop than Christmas – but they’re also embellished with tiny little golden pearls, so here we are, back at the sophisticated style. ;) You see – I’m a fan, haha! :)

Well, for now, I want to wish you all lovely holidays – whether you celebrate Christmas or not or some other holidays, I hope you spend your time with all your loved ones, happy and cozy and with loads of delicious food! Always remember: Christmas isn’t about the presents (even if they’re the best extra!) – it’s about love and we should never forget that love is the most important thing in this world – we need it. Especially these days. ♥
