I’m finally able to show you another #BeachBodyNotSorry look – this time in cooperation with sheego. I wrote → an article for their magazine in which you can find some tips about confidence at the beach. Since the article is in German, I translated my three tips for you:

1 • Yes, people will be watching you. But maybe they’re not even thinking badly about you? They may think your bikini/swimsuit looks nice, maybe they think you’re a beautiful person, or maybe they’re asking themselves why they didn’t dare to go to the beach like this yet. Sure, there will be some of them thinking very bad things about you, but especially as long as they’re not saying anything, you really shouldn’t care!

2 • If you already know that you won’t feel good in a bikini, there’s no sense in forcing you to wear it. People will notice that you’re not happy. I’m sure you’ll feel better wearing a tankini or swimsuit and if that’s still too naked for your own taste, a cute pareo/beach towel is a great and handy idea to give you a little more confidence – and you can wrap them in so many different ways! You can find a lot of tutorials on YouTube.

3 • The sun is shining, it’s hot outside, everybody wants to cool down and have fun. And that’s what everybody’s concerned about – you may think that everybody’s watching you and making up their minds about you and even gossip secretly or say something very unpleasant that the whole beach could hear, but the truth is: everybody’s so much self-involved that the majority of people around you absolutely don’t care what you’re wearing and how you look. In the end, unfortunately (!) every woman at the beach is thinking the same and doesn’t want to make a bad impression. There’s no space left for a single thought about you and your body at the beach.
But I really need to add to this point that I find it really sad that we’re so much fixated on pleasing others – this should never be our priority number one, especially not at the beach! Enjoy your life and summer!

P.S.: I’ve still got some beachwear here to be photographed! If you’re a photographer in the Erlangen/Nürnberg area, please drop me a line, I’m currently looking for new people to work with me! :)

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. ;)

Here comes the last look of my Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook! It’s a very elegant one and maybe – if the bride is okay with that – also a look which you can wear as a wedding guest.

This time, I decided to pair this → amazing black maxi dress with silver and black patent accessories. The dress comes without a belt but as you know, I love to accentuate my waist – plus: it gives the dress a personal touch. I went for matching silver earrings, while I chose black patent shoes and the matching shining black lips clutch. It’s definitely an easy look but it looks highly sophisticated. That’s also what I love most about Anna’s dresses (not only about those in her own collection but also those for sheego) – easy to wear but at the same time very stylish.

I’m wearing a size 44 and it’s slightly loose around my waist – good thing I’m wearing a belt, right? Even though it looks amazing without it, too. 44 is my regular dress size, so if you ask me for a size recommendation – stick to your usual size or one size smaller if you’re not that curvy around your upper torso, and I’m pretty sure it will fit perfectly.

Let’s stick to the pants and show you a new denim style! :) After being more than happy with sheego’s biker look jeans, they sent me their very basic skinny jeans in denim blue and also in a very light blue (definitely a challenge since I’ve never had such a color in my closet!). These pants are just perfect and super stretchy, probably the comfiest jeans I’ve ever had (just like the biker jeans) – and the length is absolutely fine since this is a petite length. ;)

I found this ruffled sweater and the mules during my latest H&M online stroll – sad to say that more than 3/4 had to go back because their clothes are really poorly cut, and even though I mostly wear a size 44 (except for pants, I’m more of a 48/50 due to my huge hips and butt), there were a few pieces which definitely were more of a 40. But I found a handful of nice clothes which you’ll see in some of my next posts. ;)
