I really enjoy mixing different styles – especially when I can bring in some sexy lingerie like this playsuit from Agent Provocateur. Normally, that’s definitely a piece for the bedroom, but I think it’s way too cool to only be left at home, hidden in a pink box most of the time. So I thought about how to integrate it into an outfit without looking as naughty as AP’s actual plan. ;)

You already know how much I love a comfy jumpsuit – I bought this one from H&M+ a bit larger (2XL) for a very loose fit and it turned out perfectly for this little style mix. It’s been some time since I last wore a hat (and we are back…), so I had to take it out of my closet and put it right on my head. With some black and gold jewelry and mules, this was a great outfit for a relaxed summer afternoon – but still with this “sexy as hell” feeling thanks to the playsuit. ;)

Hello Diva! :) Just making fun, this hat kind of brings out the diva in me, but the whole look is somehow cruise-chic, right? ;) Unfortunately, this spot has nothing to do with a glamorous cruise through the Caribbean but some ice-cold water in a park. With bad lighting so you can see my crater-cellulite thighs. But even though I’m mentioning them and some might think that I do so because I feel bad about them, it’s more because I want to say: it’s okay. My skin down there is not perfect. My thighs are huge, and so are my hips and my butt – it’s kind of a family problem and not that easy to just get rid of through exercise. I’ve got some bad lipedema and to be honest: I don’t like it. Yes, there’s something about my body that I don’t like – this doesn’t mean that I’m not “body positive” anymore. Of course I love myself, I even love my legs even though they’re not the most beautiful part about me (plus, again: the lighting is so not flattering!). I’m allowed to find some imperfections and not feel good about them.
But: is this a reason to hide them? I won’t jump into the water wearing long pants. Definitely not. For some, my thighs may be disgusting, others may think that I’m brave because I’m even posting pictures of me showing them, others may not even notice my cellulite – maybe because I’m still confident about my body. It’s okay to have some flaws. I’ve accepted my legs and I’m fine with them.
And that’s why I’ll now stop talking about them and change the topic to this gorgeous bikini: it’s a freestyle thing as the top is from Agent Provocateur and the bottoms from H&M+. I knew I’d never fit into the actual bottoms from Agent Provocateur, so I came up with the idea to do some black and white combo and this is it. Black high-waist pants plus a very special white top (I love it so much!). Add the cruise chic with a huge striped hat and a sheer kimono for even more glam and you’re good to go – for a real cruise or just some splish-splash fun at the park. Feel free to wear whatever you want, whenever you want. :*

Exploring new little beaches in Hamburg is a lot of fun – especially when you have to climb over a fence (oops!) and down many rocks (wearing flip flops). But sometimes it’s worth it and you’ll find a tiny beach just for you – with nobody disturbing your shooting just before sunset. And only a few minutes before this beach got flooded pretty quickly. You can probably imagine how quickly we climbed back up all the rocks in order to stay dry. ;)

Funny story behind this look: my top is actually a beach towel from when I was little. When we last visited my parents, I had a look at the stuff I had left there and found it – the tie-dye print is way too beautiful (just as the memories!) to leave it unworn and so I came up with the idea to wear it as a crop top, wrapping it around my bust and neck and tadaaa: fits again! ;)
I also wanted to wear a turban again and found another piece I had already forgotten. Isn’t this scarf a perfect match to the top? And to round up that blue look, I put on my blue sunnies and some tiny turquoise earrings. Good to go! Even though I would have worn some sneakers instead of flip flops if I’d known that I’d go climbing. ;) Still there’s nothing better than walking barefoot in the sand and just staying there with your feet in the water, sinking in a little more, wave by wave…

Palm tree print, sheer clothes, favorite bag, new sunnies and (the best thing about this post) sunshine in Hamburg. That’s what I call “the good life”. Sitting on a bridge, watching the sun go down, eating a sandwich, sharing it all with my family (which includes my parents who I called via Skype) and just feeling great. Is there anything better? I don’t think so. ;)

By the way: these pants have become my summer favorite. Fortunately, my mother managed to get another pair for me, so I won’t have to live without them in case I wear them too often and ruin them. ;) My tip for you (once again) if you’re looking for a particular piece at H&M: have a look at their online shop at around 5 am – almost everything is available again and maybe also these pants (if not, there are similar ones → here, also from H&M).

Another favorite: my sunglasses. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but you know me – the fancier the sunnies, the more I love them. These sunglasses were the highlight of Dolce & Gabbana’s “Spain in Sicily” collection and when I visited the store here in Hamburg, they were the first thing I saw. It’s unbelievable how one can walk into the store and not see all those gorgeous bags and shoes (and dresses, but we already talked about this – I’m pretty sure I’ll never own one because of the sizing, but that’s okay as long as I can buy sunglasses like these!), but that’s me – my obsession is all about sunglasses. ;) I’m so in love with this pair that I’m really trying to combine them with everything, even though that’s not that easy – let’s see when I’m going to post the next outfit with them. ;)
