It’s been some time! But I’m back with a new outfit. I hope to be able to finally shoot a little more but I hope you can still be a bit patient since I’m still here with only a handful of my clothes. Of course, I brought my all-time favorite with me – the “Modern Love” jumpsuit from Beth Ditto! You’ve already seen it a few times on the blog and I know it’s nothing new but this time it’s a very basic look which I upgraded with a special make-up (Urban Decay’s → “Naked Heat” palette is amazing, you should check it out!).

I wore this look for a ladies’ night out with my mom, the best date one can wish for and we had some delicious sushi. :) I hope you’re all enjoying the last days of summer to the fullest! I’ll try to shoot another #BeachBodyNotSorry look as soon as possible to finish this year’s project. I hope it was enough. :) And I hope that you all spent lots of time out in the sun, showing your bare arms and legs and your happy bellies in bikinis and swimsuits! Soon it’s time to cuddle up in warm clothes again…

Oh, the easy summer looks – how I missed them! :) I’m so glad summer’s back (well, not today while writing this post, it’s raining, but I guess that’s part of living in Germany)!

Today’s outfit kind of reminds me a bit of the country style and I really love how it’s super casual but sexy at the same time. I think the top is actually supposed to be worn with the laces falling down, but I thought it’d be cool to wear them around my neck and I really like the outcome.

And since this look is very cropped, you can say “hi” to my lovely little Dexcom sensor. ;) I promised to not retouch my pictures and not remove my diabetes stuff from my cyborg body because it’s a part of me (the pump is clipped to the bum bag of my jeans), so here it is. ;) That’s also what I meant when I wrote about realness in my last “Private” post. ;)

After my vintagey and super elegant Christmas look, which is the perfect choice for an opulent and glamorous party, today’s look is a bit more modern yet sophisticated and I guess if I were going to a party, this is what I’d wear. But since we already celebrated Christmas with our families at home earlier this month, tomorrow I’ll be spending a cozy and cuddly evening with my husband on the sofa – I’ll cook a nice dinner and we’ll watch a movie. And yeah – this look would be way too overdressed for it! ;)

You may remember → the stunning dress I wore at the Marina Rinaldi event at the styling session. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available anymore, but this skirt is a perfect substitute! Black and gold is such an amazing classic and still always a modern choice – depending on how you style it. I wanted it to be a young and fresh look and that’s why I went for the following accessories: The belt – the elastic band with the patent and black silver front (mixing gold and silver isn’t a taboo anymore!) dresses it all down a little bit, makes it look cool and a bit more casual. The sandals – flats aren’t the obvious choice but definitely comfy enough and a great choice if they’re as embellished as mine. Flats don’t always mean casual! The earrings – these are probably the most important part of my accessory choice because they are kind of unexpected since the bamboo hoop style is a bit more hip hop than Christmas – but they’re also embellished with tiny little golden pearls, so here we are, back at the sophisticated style. ;) You see – I’m a fan, haha! :)

Well, for now, I want to wish you all lovely holidays – whether you celebrate Christmas or not or some other holidays, I hope you spend your time with all your loved ones, happy and cozy and with loads of delicious food! Always remember: Christmas isn’t about the presents (even if they’re the best extra!) – it’s about love and we should never forget that love is the most important thing in this world – we need it. Especially these days. ♥

It was really hard to find a post title for today’s look. I chose “Broadcast” because I wore this outfit on Monday when I was live on the radio. I did a short interview for WDR Funkhaus Europa and had my own little studio at NDR Hamburg, which was a funny experience because the radio interviews I did before were all on the phone and now I was invited to the studio but it was only for me – yet we were connected through the stations. Unfortunately, it seems there is no podcast, but let me tell you: it’s nothing new. I answered a few questions about me and the blog, plus size in Germany and what’s my wish for the future of all plus-size bloggers here. I still hope the answers were interesting for everyone who didn’t know me and the blog (and our plus-size blogosphere) yet, and if you came here because of the show – welcome! :)

About my look: this dress is officially a → “Curvy Tall” dress from Scarlett & Jo, but since I love midi dresses or even calf-length dresses, I was like “who cares?” and as you can see, the choice wasn’t bad. Usually, when I buy longer dresses, they’re instantly maxi dresses (but with a weird length), and even though this isn’t a problem for me, I sometimes wish I were a bit taller so dresses would have their actual lengths and would look like they’re supposed to. But since I’m so short, this is something I had to learn and I also learned how to cheat – of course, every dress will be a bit longer, but sometimes this can be very cool and look extremely great! Just like this one! Normally, I’d say that especially midi (and longer) dresses work perfectly with high heels, but since I’m a comfy person and like to wear flats, I went for my favorite sandals (gosh, I really hope they’ll never break!) and as you can see – it looks amazing. Even though I’m short. And even if some may think that there’s this rule that short people should try to look as tall as possible by avoiding certain dress and skirt lengths and wearing heels as often as possible, I say: fuck it. You don’t have to please anyone else but yourself. And if you want to wear midis with flats – do it! Your life, your body, your clothes, your rules. Ha!
