Hands up, who remembers this background? Those of you who already follow me and the blog for more than 3 years, will have a major flashback! ;) I have to be honest: I really miss the minimalistic photo locations in Hamburg but it’s kind of funny to be back with my retro style for the outfit photos. I guess as long as I’m here, this will be a recurring background, but I’m trying my best to still offer you some different looks. ;)

This is my second style with and for C&A for fall. It was actually supposed to go online in September but because of the Plus Size Fashion Days (where I also walked for C&A in a lovely outfit!) and my sick time in bed, I just managed to shoot this look right now.

I couldn’t find the sweater online, it may be sold out, but you should look for it in your nearest store if you love it as much as I do. I hope you can find it there!

Edit: the sweater is now available online, → here!

This is a super easy and cozy look for fall. I came to appreciate these kinds of outfits during my first time without an actual closet. Of course, I’m still that extravagant person you know but my priorities changed a bit and I learned that it’s absolutely fine to wear something basic – you can always make it your own with the right accessories or a special make-up. And you don’t need a certain outfit to be happy. It’s about feeling good and yes, this comes also from clothes when you feel cozy and comfy, but it’s also about where you wear it and with whom. ;) #friendsandfamily

When I put this outfit together, it instantly reminded me of Carrie Heffernan (raise your hands, “King of Queens” fans!). I can’t say in which episode, but I somehow had the feeling I’d seen something quite similar on the show. So this is kind of a 90s look (and yes, I’m not that happy to say that because I’m a 90s kid and I know about all those horrible trends like Buffalo sneakers and tattoo chokers – and even though these trends keep coming back against my will, I must say that some of them are pretty cool) but I really love it! :)

Another thing about this outfit – and I can’t point it out often enough because we finally need to understand that it isn’t bad: #visiblebellyoutline – I have to say that it looks even more visible in the pictures than in real life, but hey, so what? You can see my belly! If you feel shocked or even disgusted, please know and finally understand that a belly isn’t something gross. Bellies are part of our bodies and seeing them shouldn’t make us feel bad and especially not make others puke. We need to stop focusing on that “I need to hide my ‘problem areas’” feeling! Our bodies aren’t problems! And fashion is not supposed to be a “hiding assistant”. ;) #nuffsaid

Earlier this month, I had my shopping day with the winners of the C&A giveaway. I’ll tell you more about it in my monthly recap, but this is one of two looks I found on that day. This one is a bit more classic and elegant, the other one more casual (→ here’s a sneak peek!).

Trousers have become a very rare sight here on the blog and also in my closet. The whole look is very unusual for me, since I don’t really like blazers on me (at least, this one doesn’t really look like one), and pants, well, I simply prefer dresses and skirts. That’s just the way it is. ;)

But from time to time, I like to do something different and try new things, and I felt like it when we strolled through the whole store (what a day – we spent almost five hours in there!). I’m curious to read what you think about it, since you don’t see me like this very often. I must say that I have to get used to these pants, but I like how they complete the look in the best way possible because of the pattern of the blazer. :) Wouldn’t be the same with a skirt!

Isn’t this cape awesome? I got it last year, now it’s on sale and you can get it → here. I really like that it can be worn as a cape or poncho (just button the sleeves on or off) – I actually prefer the cape version because it makes the body shape more visible.

By the way, I’ve never been a blazer girl. They just never seem to fit me well enough and I feel that I look somehow strange in them. But this blazer cut is very cool, and together with those cape sleeves it made me buy this very special piece. :)

I went for a very business-like look, kind of androgynous with the black pants, no cleavage and the hat. I don’t wear this kind of style very often (even though I got another boyish look coming!) because I definitely prefer feminine outfits with dresses and skirts, but I really like this look on me. And you can definitely make it feminine enough with the right make-up – guess that’s where I transformed it into my own style. ;)
