My second outfit shoot with Katharina brings you this unusual combination! :) And even though it’s something new for me, I enjoy wearing it so much! I’ve worn it a lot because of my closet problem, sometimes exchanged the black shirt with a white t-shirt for an even more casual style, but this is my favorite combo – because I love the mix of super sexy with that cleavage and the casual look with jeans and sneakers. The kimono gives it that last fashionable touch and makes the whole outfit very special and I’m so glad I bought it cause it’s exactly the showstopper I needed in my life. :) Plus: who says, short people can’t wear long jackets? It had to be shortened, though. Haha!

You may have noticed that Katharina’s photos look a little bit different. This is because she’s a professional photographer and uses Photoshop (which I don’t even own and therefore never use!). I asked her to go slow with the retouching but, of course, I didn’t want her to lose her own style of working on the pictures. So this is just a little reminder that you might notice a difference. ;)

As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.

As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.

P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)

Seems like this is my first fall look of the year (even though I still hope that the sun won’t be gone as soon as expected so I can still wear a handful of summer outfits I couldn’t wear when I was sick in bed…)! And I wore it for a great occasion! As you all know, I was in Milan from Friday to Saturday last week with Marina Rinaldi for a special event. The capsule collection in cooperation with Stella Jean was presented on Friday evening and I was invited to come and have a look together with → Callie Thorpe and → Hayley Hasselhoff. But first, we had a delicious lunch and visited Marina Rinaldi’s flagship store in the heart of Milan for a styling session. It was super fun to try on a few of their stylist’s suggestions at the store and pick out some favorite pieces like the dress I’m showing you today (and which is part of the current collaboration with Tsumori Chisato). I guess we’ll receive the photos soon and I will show them to you in one of my next posts.

In the evening we finally got to see the presentation, which was absolutely stunning. The location was as artful as the collection and definitely the highlight of the day. Afterwards we had the most delicious Italian dinner at LARTE with the Marina Rinaldi team – the day was amazing and I really want to say thanks to everyone again. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. ♥

The outfit I chose for the day is kind of casual chic and has this cool twist with the socks. I know they’re not everyone’s favorite, as I already found out on my social media channels, but I think that they’re exactly what makes the outfit an outfit. Of course, the look is nice without socks too – but with socks, it’s my kind of fashion. ;) It was fun to wear this look in Milan, I also had the feeling that I was photographed a few times on the streets and at the event, and yes, this makes me kind of proud. ;) It was also super exciting to see this absolutely fashionable city during Fashion Week. So many stylish people walking around – I kind of miss this here in Germany. We totally need a bit of that “Dolce Vita” feeling. ;)
