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!

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

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. ;)

As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.

As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.

P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)

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. ;)
