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. ;)

Here it is, the last look of this year’s → #BeachBodyNotSorry project. I’m very sorry and actually pretty sad that I couldn’t provide more different photos and styles but due to my current situation (no beaches, no actual photographer, plus: I was too sad during the summer months) this is all I could do. Now, it’s getting too cold for beach looks but as we all know: next year there’ll be a new summer season and I’m looking forward to new chances and new styles for my most favorite project of the year. :)

Since it’s already pretty cold and also a little bit weird to pose just in a swimsuit on the middle of the street in a small village, I decided to create a pool party look by adding a long kimono and high heels.

This swimsuit might be one of my absolute favorites. I love the print which is kind of watercolor-like. I also love the cut and the fit – even though this is a piece from H&M’s regular collection and “only” EU size 42. Sometimes, it’s worth a try to go for smaller sizes, especially because swimwear is very elastic. Of course, it shouldn’t cut into your skin but I’ve learned that swimwear does not always have to be chosen in your regular size. So that’s just a tip from my side. ;)

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. :*
