• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2016 •

It’s already pretty cold outside but I still want to quickly talk about this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project and have a look at the beach outfits I wore this season. I kind of felt that plus-sized beach bodies were more present than ever in 2016. Of course there were a few very important moments like → Ashley Graham on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” or the most recent → “All Woman Project” launched by Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard (featuring some amazing beach wear by Phylyda – I hope I can work with this brand next year!). But we also had bloggers showing their beach bodies everywhere and it makes me proud to say that I’m a part of this – again.

Unfortunately, this time I couldn’t show as many looks as → last year – on the one hand, there simply was a lack of new beach wear (I just didn’t want to wear everything again, but neither did I want to spend loads of money on new stuff – cause our summer in Germany isn’t long enough to hoard uncountable masses of bikinis and swimsuits), on the other hand, I missed almost 90% of our summer because I was very sick. Even beginning to shoot before the start of the official beach season wasn’t that helpful, so I only managed to do five looks (plus two “covered” beach styles, meaning: one with a kaftan and another one wearing transparent stuff over my bikini).

So let’s recap my #BeachBodyNotSorry looks of 2016…

Today, I’ve got another festive look for you. Actually, it’s not only a look for festive occasions but also every day and every party. :) Thanks to → this gorgeous and basic jumpsuit.

I finally found the perfect black overall during Black Friday when it was already reduced and got it with 25% discount (unfortunately, it’s sold out in almost all sizes by now, but I’ve picked out a few other black jumpsuits that look very nice, you can find them below). It was pretty pricey, but totally worth it. Quality, fabric, cut – it’s just perfect and a great addition to my closet. By the way: one of my plans for next year is to sort out my clothes and get rid of a few pieces – I’ll maybe sell a few online and later on a curvy flea market, but of course I’ll announce everything when the time comes! ;)

Back to the actual topic: this could be my Christmas look for this year, or maybe my New Year’s Eve outfit – I don’t know yet. All I know is that I really want to wear this jumpsuit, because I totally love it. And there’s some space left for all the delicious food awaiting me around the holidays. ;)

I chose golden metallic and holographic accessories, my favorite duo from Gucci and after a loooong time, I’m finally wearing these beautiful earrings from ASOS again! Black and gold is very elegant, I think for special occasions it’s even nicer than combining black with silver (I think silver is more “everyday”, you know what I mean?).

I also splurged a bit more on my make-up: light gold, dark gold, extreme falsies and glitter (what’s XMAS and NYE without all the sparkling?). It’s actually a pretty easy look, just make sure that the eye liner is even (I know, there’s the first problem) and the falsies stay put (yeah, second problem – mine tried to leave after shooting in cold wind because my eyes tend to tear pretty fast in this weather… – I definitely need a better glue!). The light gold eye shadow is placed all over the lids and the dark gold only in the crease to give it all more depth, that’s it. Add some nude-rosé lip gloss, maybe even layer some more glitter on top (I’ve got this gorgeous lip gloss from an old Chanel collection, it’s transparent with tiny pink and blue glitter particles and was just perfect here!) and you’re ready to party!

My last look of the exclusive lookbook I created for the Anna Scholz x sheego collection is all about this black lace dress, a very classic piece. And it’s also one of my inspirational outfits for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. There will be a few more coming so you can get ready for all the upcoming festive occasions. :)

Black is always a great choice for any party and especially lace dresses are absolutely classy and look great on every woman. This dress has a V-neck and transparent short sleeves, a formfitting and curve-hugging cut and the perfect length for formal occasions, that’s why I went for a more elegant style for our editorial. I guess you could wear this for your Christmas party at work! ;)

Instead of wearing obvious black heels, I picked nude platform sandals – they’re a bit more special and the color is great to make your legs look a bit longer (which is great for me, since I’m so small!). I also added silver jewelry and a red clutch that matches my lipstick (but I chose two different reds to make it a little more interesting!).

This dress doesn’t need more details around it, but, for example, you could also wear it with a belt, or add a blazer, wear it with black pumps or in this case with red ones, you could style it more casually with a leather jacket or a denim jacket in summer – since it’s a classic piece and black is extremely versatile, there are so many ways to wear it, you just have to be creative! :)

Of course, there’s also a special blog post available on → sheego’s blog “feel happy!”, where you can find more information about my make-up, including tips on how to create perfect red lips!
