You may remember → Stylefully from one of my outfits → earlier this year. I’m teaming up with the plus-size online shop for a special look and giveaway again.
For my outfit, I decided to do something classy and very ladylike. This is one of my last summer looks (even though I’m happy to be able to be on vacation now and enjoy a little bit more of sunshine before coming back to fall in full bloom – or rather falling leaves), but of course also wearable in every season. Just add some tights and maybe a blazer and you’re good to go for any more formal occasion.

I really don’t want to fail to mention how perfect this dress is – it’s not only obviously beautiful with the gorgeous midnight blue color and the lovely lace. There’s also this great cut that hugs the curves perfectly. And let’s talk about how delicate those little cap sleeves look! Also, the wrap look at the bust creates a very nice cleavage, and to be honest: I love my butt in this dress! :)

So while I’m away, I’ve got something for you – you can enter the giveaway and win a voucher worth €200. All you have to do is:

• Like → Stylefully on Facebook (and feel free to like → my page too, it’s optional but you’ll make me very happy!)
• Leave a comment at → this Facebook post with the link to your favorite piece at Stylefully (hard to choose, I know!)

This giveaway is open for Germany and Austria, and open until September 30. The winner will be contacted via Facebook message (so please check your FB mailbox afterwards!) and announced in this blog post.
You’ll find all terms and conditions1 at the end of this blog post.

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. :*

Shirt: persona by Marina Rinaldi
Petticoat: COS
Belt: Zara
Pumps: LaStrada
Earrings: Swarovski
Bracelet: Hermès
Ring: YSL Arty Ring

Sometimes it has to be extra-girly – that’s just what I thought when persona by Marina Rinaldi surprised me with this shirt. I’ve been positing many rather unusual looks the last few weeks (and I love it!) and there’s been a lot of swimwear, so why not try something classy and elegant again? :) My petticoat skirt is one of my favorites in my closet, but unfortunately it never had a great cut because of the non-stretchy fabric at the waist. But somehow I always managed to wear it without any problems (like → here, → here and → here). ;)

So today’s look is a little more sophisticated and somehow ladylike, but still fun and girly thanks to the skirt and playful details like the belt and the pink lipstick. ;)

Wait, is this really Hamburg? No beach abroad? Yup. We’re back at the dunes… I really love this place and the fine sand makes me feel like I’m on vacation somewhere far, far away. :) Today, I don’t want to write too much – just let you enjoy these pictures, which are my favorites since, like… forever. :) I love the whole look and also, this swimsuit is a piece that made me very happy when I bought it. Here’s another proud addition to my → #BeachBodyNotSorry series and hopefully further proof that curves don’t need to be hidden at the beach!
