I wore this for a very special date with one of my dear readers – she wrote me such a lovely e-mail telling me that she first saw me and my blog in a magazine years ago and that she’d love to meet me by coincidence one day, since we both live in Hamburg. I suggested that we should just go out for ice cream together instead of waiting for a miracle (let’s be honest: the world’s a small place but why wait?) and that’s what we did. So here’s a very special virtual hug for you, Rebecca! :)

It’s so great to meet new people because of something that you love. It’s amazing to get to know them (since you all already know me!), talk about common interests and find new friends. Seriously, this blog brings me so much joy – it was the best choice to start it more than 7 years ago. And here I am, still sharing my outfits with you, talking about make-up (well, from time to time, I know I don’t do it a lot anymore) and fighting for body positivity every day. What started as “I’m bored, let’s do a blog about my looks” turned into something so important and special for me, and sharing it all with you is what makes me very happy.
Wow, what a deep outfit post. Well, sometimes I just write what I feel. :) Have a lovely week, everyone! ♥

Shirt: H&M Trend
Denim Culottes: Zizzi
Sandals: Arezzo
Bag: Gucci “Dionysus”
Earrings: H&M
Alternatives: Honey shirt,
Boohoo culottes, ASOS sandals,
ASOS bag

This is the last outfit with my old hair color and cut (and now I miss it a lot, gotta come back to this style soon, but at the moment I’m good with the golden brown). :)

I really like the current “Carmen” shirt trend – bare shoulders, ruffles and lace. I found → this lovely top at H&M and wanted to do something different, so I went for a combination with my → denim culottes and a slightly 70s-inspired look. The shirt is transparent, so you can choose whether to wear nothing (say: a nude bra) or something white or colorful underneath – I chose a nude bra (and still (!!!) have to find a good one without straps – it’s a sad story!) and love the look of it. :)

All in all, this is more of a casual look with the denim pants and flatform sandals – I kind of like these relaxed looks at the moment (even though we already shot this back in the middle of March, oops!) and I hope you like them too! :)

After lots of elegant outfits, it’s time for a casual look – this is one of my favorites for any casual occasion: shopping, coffee with friends, just for a walk,… I really love the combination of my comfiest pants with a statement shirt (still a lover of Noble Project – I think it’s time to get another charity shirt!), my favorite denim jacket and neon kicks. Of course there has to be a special fashion touch: choker, my beloved Chanel earrings, the best bag in the world (seriously, this one was my best buy ever!) and funny socks. ;)

Shirt: persona by Marina Rinaldi
Skirt: H&M+
High Heels: YSL “Tribute”
Hat: H&M Divided
Earrings: Chanel
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: ASOS Curve skirt,
New Look heels, ASOS hat

I know, black and white is nothing new here – but it is what it is: I just love this combination in every possible way. :) Today’s highlight piece is the shirt from persona by Marina Rinaldi, with a black leaves print and a few transparent details, it has a boxy fit and I just couldn’t resist styling it with my black (fake) leather skirt. I know, this outfit is probably something for fall season, but since the weather has been pretty weird these days (snow and horrible rain in April, crazy stuff – and right after the shower comes sunshine and rainbows, someone’s very confused up there!), I think it’s okay to show something that’s not completely summery. :) Even though I also love wearing black and white in summer. I mean – there’s no wrong time to wear it. ;)
