And yet another piece I’ve styled differently – you know the stripy piece as a dress and some loved it, others hated it (especially on social media), but I must say: I absolutely adore it. And as you can see, you can also wear it as a kind of blouse jacket.

I wanted to throw in a casual look again – for that, I went for my super basic black jumpsuit (which is dead now cause it’s pretty ripped between my legs, but you can’t see it because I’m wearing black Spanx underneath – but I’ll need a new one now…) and the Superga flatforms I got last year. This look is easily styled and just as easy and comfy to wear. Since the dress is made of silk, it’s a perfect piece for summer, despite the long sleeves, because the fabric is so wonderfully lightweight. I truly love silk, even though it crumples pretty bad.

After my last → “all black” look, I’ve got something very colorful for you today! This is an outfit which definitely gets the hashtag #visiblebellyoutline and I’m proud to share it just like this. Because nobody should feel ashamed of his or her body. I mean: what’s so wrong about seeing a person’s belly? It’s probaby a strange comparison but I keep asking myself why people go crazy about big preggo bellies but are totally disgusted and get offensive when it’s just fat. Why should I feel less valuable just because you can see that I’m fat? Why should I hide it for others if I’m okay with it, if I like my body and want to show it? So today’s look is yet another (as you’ve already seen me pretty often wearing such tight dresses) scream for freedom. The freedom to wear whatever I want and show whatever I want. The freedom to be able to go outside showing my belly, my bum, my thighs and yes, accept that people are going to stare (because they always do), but don’t let them make me feel ugly.

Fashion should be our very own freedom to invent ourselves new every time we choose our outfits – if we want to. Fashion should always be a fun thing, not a serious struggle to hide ourselves and make ourselves invisible so nobody can insult us and actually hurt us with words and laughter. Fashion is such a great thing because it gives us the power to feel better on a moody day (try some colors instead of black and gray!), it gives us the power to feel confident and professional, the power to feel sexy and desirable, the power to feel like nobody can stop us. And yet fashion is something that can put us down so easily because of what others may say about what we’re wearing, how we look. Yes – fashion is not here to impress and please everyone. Fashion means something else for everyone and we all have a different, even though sometimes very similar, taste. I’m being a bit deep today, but I want to say that fashion can be magical in the right moment, yet we choose to define people based on their looks, which is fine (because it’s something we want others to do when we choose a happy, powerful or sexy outfit, for example) – until this becomes something we use against each other. It’s cool to see someone and get the feeling to know how this person feels today, how this person’s character may be – but we should never forget to look behind it all, to give everyone a second look even if the first look didn’t please us. Fashion is just a disguise we can use for our emotions (yes, I do wear different clothes when I’m sad or happy), but we should never forget that behind all those clothes there’s an actual person who’s got real feelings and a story to tell, so let’s always keep listening. ♥

Dress: Anna Scholz for sheego
Belt: Ted Baker “Julo”
Espadrilles: Arezzo
Hat: Vintage
Sunglasses: Ray Ban “Round”
Bracelet: Hermès
In cooperation with sheego.

I’ve teamed up again with sheego for another series around the latest and current Anna Scholz for sheego collection. You can already find all pieces online and I’ll show you my three favorites of it on a monthly basis.

Today’s favorite (and my number one of them) is the → maxi dress with a blue and white feather print. Luckily, sheego offers petite lengths for tiny Human McNuggets like me, so I chose the slightly shorter version of the dress to wear the actual length.

I’ve created a casual style, wearing suede fringe espadrilles, but of course this dress also looks great with high heels, especially wedges or platform sandals for a kind of hippie style.
I also added a belt in order to accentuate my waist, and chose a few accessories in black and blue to complete the look. Even though I really adore elegant and sophisticated looks, this is probably one of my favorite casual looks ever, and because the pieces I chose for my editorials are only borrowed for the shootings, I will definitely get this one again so I can wear it more often during spring and summer.
By the way: it’s made of soft and elastic jersey and the fabric isn’t too thin, so it falls very prettily, but it’s still light and loose enough to be worn without sweating when it’s warm outside. ;) That’s one of the features I really love about Anna Scholz dresses.

Exploring new little beaches in Hamburg is a lot of fun – especially when you have to climb over a fence (oops!) and down many rocks (wearing flip flops). But sometimes it’s worth it and you’ll find a tiny beach just for you – with nobody disturbing your shooting just before sunset. And only a few minutes before this beach got flooded pretty quickly. You can probably imagine how quickly we climbed back up all the rocks in order to stay dry. ;)

Funny story behind this look: my top is actually a beach towel from when I was little. When we last visited my parents, I had a look at the stuff I had left there and found it – the tie-dye print is way too beautiful (just as the memories!) to leave it unworn and so I came up with the idea to wear it as a crop top, wrapping it around my bust and neck and tadaaa: fits again! ;)
I also wanted to wear a turban again and found another piece I had already forgotten. Isn’t this scarf a perfect match to the top? And to round up that blue look, I put on my blue sunnies and some tiny turquoise earrings. Good to go! Even though I would have worn some sneakers instead of flip flops if I’d known that I’d go climbing. ;) Still there’s nothing better than walking barefoot in the sand and just staying there with your feet in the water, sinking in a little more, wave by wave…
