Spending some time at the beach has become my favorite activity in summer (before we moved to Hamburg, we didn’t have beaches around, so this is pretty new for me!). I really enjoy the sand between my tippy-toes, the cold water on my legs and the sun on my skin while wearing my bikinis and swimsuits. Also, beachwear is something very cool and today’s beach dress is definitely the most beautiful one I own. :)

I love the sheer parts that let my bikini shine through, the loose cut, the flared sleeves and the lace-up cleavage.

We shot these pictures at the Finkenriek beach, it’s a small one next to a railway line, that’s why this beach is probably not one of Hamburg’s favorites – it’s pretty loud when a train goes by. Anyways, I don’t really care. A beach is a beach and there’s bamboo, sand and refreshing water (but please don’t try to swim there – the current is pretty bad and dangerous!), so: enjoy! :)

So you’ve already seen me wear lots of jumpsuits, but this is the first time I wore a short one. That whole thigh chafing problem doesn’t make it easy to wear shorts, as it makes the fabric keep moving up the thighs while walking. The shorts have to be long enough to stay put. I still haven’t found a trick to avoid this problem (any ideas?), that’s why I haven’t worn shorts for a long time, unless they were almost knee-length.

Fortunately, I found this short jumpsuit from H&M in EU size 46 (unfortunately only available online in this size), which can easily be worn without any chafing problems. The loose cut is great for summer and is a great choice for going to the beach – just wear your bikini underneath and you’re good to go (I was sitting next to a canal and very tempted to jump into the water while shooting!)! :)

If there’s one fashion thing that I always repeat, it’s combining black with some colorful details. Black is definitely the most fashionable color – it works for any occasion, fits everyone and always looks classy (or just the way you want it!).

Today, I’m combining black with a longer midi skirt with a colorful brush strokes print. The skirt was instantly sold out at H&M, so unfortunately there’s only one chance for you to (maybe) get it: get up early at around 5 am and have a look at the online shop – that’s when they re-fill their stock and almost everything is available in all sizes.

Of course I couldn’t resist adding some special details like my heels and the glittering sunnies from Miu Miu. I also tried something new: wearing my shoulder bag as a fanny pack. I still think that’s a great idea (especially if you’re not carrying too much stuff around with you) and gives the whole look that very special last touch. Fancy meets classy. Definitely me! :)

Part two of my → #BeachBodyNotSorry series up here on the blog is a little more daring – wearing a bikini when you’re fat is still not that funny at the beach (as I had to feel by myself – people were saying rude things and I could hear it!), but I honestly loved it (except for the bad sunburn – I’m kind of still wearing my top…).
Wearing a bikini is kind of a freedom for a fat person. You’re always told to hide your imperfections, get tips on which bikini, tankini or swimsuit is best for your body type (comparing people to fruits – by the way – is something that I find totally stupid, I’m not a pear, I’m body type “human”) to make everything look thinner and smaller and not like yourself anymore. I say: your body type is none of anyone’s business and you’re absolutely allowed to wear whatever the hell you want. And if that’s a bikini: wear it. Period.

For these pictures, I covered up a little (not because I’m afraid to show you my body – you’ll see this when you look at them, but because that’s what the blog post is about! ;)) with this gorgeous dragon print kimono by → Anna Scholz. It’s on sale right now, so if you fell in love just like me – go ahead and make a bargain! And when you’re already at it: have a look at Anna’s gorgeous dresses (you can also get a → dress with the same print as this kimono!). If there’s a plus-size designer who knows how to create a perfect dress for curves, it’s her!
I already had the pleasure to meet Anna a few times (last time on Tuesday at the “Curvy” fair in Berlin) and I’m happy to say that I totally trust her – she knows what plus-size girls need, as she’s always been curvy herself. She knows how to dress curves and her clothes are always on point. Also, I love the utterly beautiful prints that she keeps choosing for her collections – I mean, look at this kimono? Isn’t it just perfect?
Of course, wearing a kimono on a hot day like this (almost 40 °C/104 °F) wasn’t the best idea, but I’d do anything for great pictures (bloggers…). :) Anyways, I’m already looking forward to a very special cooperation for fall with Anna Scholz and sheego – so stay tuned for lots of beautiful dresses! And until then, you can also have a look at my previous Anna Scholz looks → here (this is → my favorite!). ;)
