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…

Palm tree print, sheer clothes, favorite bag, new sunnies and (the best thing about this post) sunshine in Hamburg. That’s what I call “the good life”. Sitting on a bridge, watching the sun go down, eating a sandwich, sharing it all with my family (which includes my parents who I called via Skype) and just feeling great. Is there anything better? I don’t think so. ;)

By the way: these pants have become my summer favorite. Fortunately, my mother managed to get another pair for me, so I won’t have to live without them in case I wear them too often and ruin them. ;) My tip for you (once again) if you’re looking for a particular piece at H&M: have a look at their online shop at around 5 am – almost everything is available again and maybe also these pants (if not, there are similar ones → here, also from H&M).

Another favorite: my sunglasses. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but you know me – the fancier the sunnies, the more I love them. These sunglasses were the highlight of Dolce & Gabbana’s “Spain in Sicily” collection and when I visited the store here in Hamburg, they were the first thing I saw. It’s unbelievable how one can walk into the store and not see all those gorgeous bags and shoes (and dresses, but we already talked about this – I’m pretty sure I’ll never own one because of the sizing, but that’s okay as long as I can buy sunglasses like these!), but that’s me – my obsession is all about sunglasses. ;) I’m so in love with this pair that I’m really trying to combine them with everything, even though that’s not that easy – let’s see when I’m going to post the next outfit with them. ;)

Follow me into the dunes – isn’t it amazing that there’s a place in Hamburg that looks like a sandy beach? But it’s not a beach and there’s no water, no sea. This is a shifting dune, the last one in Hamburg.
But even though you won’t have the feeling of being on a foreign beach, you can definitely get some holiday vibes there. Just bring a huge towel, some house tunes on your phone, lots of sunscreen and dress up like you’re going on a trip through the Egyptian desert. ;) But don’t worry, it’s not going to be that hot.

For my little “desert trip”, I went for a casual outfit, wearing comfy and loose pants, a bikini top and an oversized kimono jacket. Adding some cool details like the black sunnies from YSL and my Dior earrings, which I mixed this time (transparent green pearl plus silver mirrored pearl), and, of course, no shoes (!), this is one of my favorite summer looks ever, ever, ever! Also, these pants are pure joy, I love them so much and can’t stop wearing them. I even wanted to buy a backup pair, but I was too late: already sold out online and I couldn’t find them offline. :(

Visiting a fashion event means: you want to look special. ;) Well, at least as far as I’m concerned. Good to know that I’ve got this special talent: finding cool stuff totally last minute. ;)
It has become kind of a ritual to rummage in the “Gold Label” section at TK Maxx (yes, this is another story of a great find there!). It’s not as regularly updated as the normal clothing sections, but from time to time there are some highlights. And just like with the last dress (remember my → See by Chloé dream dress? Leopard coincidence, haha!), I picked out another beauty. This time, it’s from Diane von Furstenberg (again, and still not a wrap dress) and a real gem. I mean: look at the colors, look at the great cut of this dress! I know we’ve got some major #visiblebellyoutline up there, but who cares (I don’t!)? This is a tight dress, it shows exactly what I got and: I l-o-v-e it. Best splash of color on a hot day (and believe me – I was melting until I put my feet into this deliciously refreshing water! I actually wanted to forget my plans for the day and get naked for a little swim, but don’t tell anyone!). I love this dress so much that I even got crazy and bought another one in the mytheresa SALE, with a → black-and-white print. Can’t wait to receive my package (I really hope it fits – it’s a different fabric, silk-jersey, while this one is pure jersey)!

Anyways, let’s talk about this beautiful little beach we found right after meeting Givenchy and Kenzo on a freakin’ cool house boat. Problem is: I want both now. I fell in love with the idea of waking up in this beautiful bedroom (have a look → here!), opening on of the French doors and jumping (naked, haha!) into the water for a little swim. Then coming back and spending the day at this tiny beach, drinking cocktails and just feeling good. Anyone up to fulfilling my dreams?
