I know, I know, it’s super cold these days – at least it wasn’t, when we took these pictures. :) And the jacket is kind of warm plus the overknee boots are a good choice to keep your legs warm when you’re wearing a short jumpsuit. To be honest, I’m still no fan of shorts cause they always go up between my thighs and I have to keep pulling on them all the time, but they look so nice! Haha!
Unfortunately, none of the pieces seem to be available anymore (most of them are already old, though), so I searched for some alternatives and you can find them below.
This winter, I kind of fell in love with striped sweaters. There’s → this cashmere piece and another one from the same brand that I found at the SALE and there’s today’s “Crazy Stripes” sweater from GAP, which is also a SALE find (call me the queen of bargains – whenever I shop, I always find a voucher or reduced pieces or even try to negotiate a bit, in a respectful way!) and therefore not available at the moment, sorry! I found a few nice alternatives, though:
Those bright rainbow stripes look great with anything, but I felt like the colors need to pop and so I went for all black around the sweater – plus a bright neon pink lipstick. Isn’t that a great combination? I’m also so, so happy to finally be able to wear my favorite hat again. It kind of looks weird with short hair but now it’s perfect again! ;)
This outfit would definitely also work with sneakers (like → those) but I feel like especially with my beloved Chewbacca jacket (at the end of this post, you can find other styles with it), it looks a little bit better with heels.
Today’s outfit has a funny story behind the look – cause these aren’t my own clothes! :)
I’ve been following Katharina for a long time and always swooning over her photos, she’s an amazing photographer from Koblenz and when I was in Düsseldorf a few weeks ago, we managed to do a super quick shoot together before I had to leave for the airport. I’m incredibly happy that we finally met and had the chance to take some pictures!
Since my wardrobe is still very limited, she brought some of her own clothes so we could do one very different look. I mean: especially that jacket is something I’d never buy on my own cause I’d believe that it’s not my style but I actually love it! Especially in combination with that lovely dress!
You see: sometimes, it’s cool to let someone else dress you up (or at least get some different ideas from a friend or so) and give new things a chance. ;)
I think this look is kind of unusual for me – not because of the whole style but because of the shirt. I usually don’t wear shirts with messages on them, but this time I couldn’t resist buying this tee because it says what I always tell you:
“you are your own beautiful”
I’ve already had this topic in → one of my “Private” posts, talking about “perfect” and how we can only define it for ourselves. It’s important that we understand that “beautiful” isn’t set in stone, it’s something that lies in the eye of the beholder, and we can only define it for ourselves because of our very own taste. Plus: “beautiful” isn’t only an adjective for the outer shell. A character can be so incredibly beautiful when it comes from a loving soul. Being beautiful doesn’t only mean pretty – you can be even more beautiful when you treat others with respect, tolerance and love.
Of course, this outfit is still a bit unusual for me because of the casual look. But still, the skirt is super sparkling – too bad the lighting outside swallowed all that colorful glitter (the skirt looks purple but the glitter is blue, golden and pink) which makes it all special enough for my taste. :)
