Well, it’s nothing new that I love jumpsuits. We have already talked about this a lot. So I’ll skip the blah blah about it and tell you a little bit about my outfit.

You already know my black and white version of this look – so this time, I’ve got something more colorful and tropical (the palm leaves were asking for it!) for you. Of course, I had to do another turban style. I still love them, even though at the moment, every inch of fabric is way too much on my skin. Summer’s in full swing here in Germany and there are only two options: you either go to the beach and keep jumping into the water or you stay at home naked and have some fun with your fan. This weekend, I’ll go for option number one – go ahead and make sure to do the same! ;)

Anyways, I had lots of fun styling this outfit – green is my favorite color, so this scarf was just perfect for my styling. Plus, it was the inspiration for my make-up. Somehow, for quite some time, my make-up has been more natural without much color, but this time I went for popping green and turquoise and some pink lipstick – and it felt good! Just like summer! :)

ENTo be honest, I’ve never been much of a fan of white – on the one hand, it makes me look like canvas (white on white – as I’m already very pale, that’s probably not the best choice), and on the other hand, it’s like a death sentence for your clothes – clumsy me, you know. Actually, I’ve got this feeling that everyone thinks like this – maybe because stains always happen when you’re wearing white. Chocolate ice cream, tomato sauce, coffee,… White is a guarantee for being the clumsiest version of yourself. :)

Still, white is a great color in summer and obviously in fashion now, so why not go ahead and give it another try! Last time I wore this dress was in 2011, when the collection came out. So it really was about time I got this dress out of my closet and out in the sun. And it felt good! Even better when a girl in the supermarket (spontaneous need for a few supplies for dinner after shooting) told me that I looked beautiful. Totally made my day. And proof that white isn’t as bad as I thought. :)

DEUm ehrlich zu sein, war ich nie ein großer Fan von Weiß – zum Einen sehe ich damit aus wie eine Leinwand (weiß auf weiß – da ich ja sowieso schon so hell bin, ist das wohl nicht die beste Wahl) und zum Anderen ist das ja quasi ein Todesurteil für die Klamotten – Tollpatsch, ihr wisst schon. Irgendwie glaube ich, dass ich mit diesem Gedanken gar nicht so allein bin – vielleicht, weil die Flecken auch wirklich immer genau dann auftreten, wenn man Weiß trägt. Schoko-Eis, Tomatensauce, Kaffee,… Weiß ist eine Garantie dafür, die tollpatschigste Ausgabe von sich selbst zu sein. :)

Trotzdem ist Weiß eine tolle Farbe im Sommer und momentan auch ziemlich im Trend, also warum dem Ganzen nicht noch eine Chance geben! Letztes Mal hab’ ich dieses Kleid 2011 getragen, als die Kollektion rauskam. Es war also wirklich an der Zeit, es mal wieder aus dem Schrank zu holen und in die Sonne zu lassen. Und es hat sich gut angefühlt! Sogar noch besser, als mir ein Mädchen im Supermarkt (spontan noch ein paar Sachen für’s Abendessen nach dem Shooten besorgt) gesagt hat, wie toll ich aussehe. Das hat mir absolut den Tag versüßt. Und ist wohl doch ein guter Beweis dafür, dass Weiß gar nicht mal so schlecht ist, wie ich immer dachte. :)

ENI saw this kind of post a while ago on → Mirela’s blog – isn’t this an adorable idea? As I was more of a beauty blogger for a long time, I have many beauty products and actually remember many of “our” stories. Sure, there are many PR samples too, but these are part of my history. :)

I’d also love to read your stories – so please feel free to share them with me in the comments!
