Happy Easter

   Leather Jacket H&M Trend, Jeans Levi's, Faux leather vest H&M Trend, Boots Zalando Collection

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you're having a nice long Easter break. I'm having a huge brunch with my family today. To me, there's nothing better than a big breakfast, so it'll be a nice day. Picture me covered in breakfast buns, fruits, cake and loads of chocolate eggs!
On to the outfit: I haven't gotten the chance to show you this shirt yet although I got it last year. My Mum bought it on a market in Morocco and it's actually a Men's shirt. I think it blends in well with the whole monochrome trend.

Dungarees

Yesterday I showed you some inspiration for dungaree-based looks. And within the day, my order already arrived. I couldn't wait to try on my denim dungarees and see how they work for me. I was worries they might make me look weird and a little bulky, but I think they actually look quite nice. A good casual look! What do you think?

Inspiration / Dungarees

Ah, dungarees. That cheeky nineties trend that's trying to make its way back into our lives. I'm really not a big fan of all things nineties. But all those gorgeous dungaree-combos out there have got me wondering if I could pull off that trend, too. Probably not. But it just so happens that I still want to give the whole thing a try, and so -accidentally- a pair of dungarees is on its way to me. I love how the long-legged version looks, but let's not push my luck. I'm sure those would look anything but flattering on me. Instead, I ordered myself a short version. I can imagine pairing some denim dungarees with tights, but they're also quite a nice alternative to shorts in the summer. We'll see how this works out.

New In / Mirrored

Mirrored sunnies from H&M (similar here and here)

Picked up these sunglasses last week. I've been looking for a pair of mirrored sunnies, and aviators just look ridiculous on me. Plus, I love blue, you know?!

Infamous

   Total Look Zara, Scarf Esprit

Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon, too! This skirt (or skort, since it is a mixture of a skirt and shorts) seems to be the blogger must-have of the hour - and I actually really like it. I'm sure I'll wear it even after the blogger craze wears off. There's something that I don't understand about people getting pissed off if they spot someone wearing the same piece as themselves. If you don't want anyone to wear what you wear, don't shop on the high street - right?

Style Evolution / Mini Skirts

A new 'Style Evolution' post - it was about time! I haven't always been the biggest fan of mini skirts, but at the moment I'm really into skirts in general, and I believe the mini would be the most flattering version for me. So here's my selection of mini skirt combos. Oh, how the first row of these photos has me longing for some sunshine...

Mellow Yellow

   Knit Jumper H&M Trend, Skirt Zara, Bag Zara

I went to do some retail therapy yesterday (not that it was needed) to try and give my wardrobe a Spring update (if Spring is ever going to come?!). Didn't really find a lot, but at least I got a really cute skirt and some new sunglasses. Will show you soon!

New In / Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue slippers from Primark

I'm quite the sucker for anything cobalt blue! Whenever I'm on a shopping spree and spot something in that colour it's hard to keep away from it. These bad boys will be my flat friends throughout spring and summer. I just love an electric blue detail in an outfit!

Beauty Favourites / #3

Everyone who knows me knows that I barely ever go without any nail polish on my nails. That said, I have quite the collection of varnishes and I clearly have my favourites. So here's my little cocktail of nail polishes du jour:

Essie 'Good to go': Best top coat. Ever. Period.
Essie 'Smokin' Hot': A dark smokey colour with a hint of lilac. I was tired of both black and dark red, so this one was a good option. Also, it goes perfectly well with the weather we got recently.
Essie 'Chinchilly': Need I say anything? I feel this shade's quite the favourite among bloggers and I must say I'm really happy with this subtle shade of grey. Just my cup of tea!

Sponsored Video / Gefunden bei Otto

/ Sorry, this post is in German.

Bei mir ist mal wieder Prüfungszeit angesagt. Und während ich so am Schreibtisch sitze und lerne, erwische ich mich immer öfter dabei, wie ich den ein oder anderen Online-Shop durchforste. Kennt ihr dieses Gefühl - immer, wenn ihr gerade überhaupt keine Zeit für Shopping habt, wird eure Wunschliste gigantisch lang?! Und wenn man sich dann mal vornimmt, durch die Läden zu streifen, findet man natürlich nichts...

Auch, wenn ich aktuell die meiste Zeit drinnen verbringe (ist ja auch nicht so, dass das aktuelle Wetter sehr einladend wäre...), ist die Inspiration Fashion-technisch nicht weit. Wie oft sehe ich in der Bahn, im Café oder auf dem Campus Mädels und denke nur "Woher hat sie das bloß?". Tatsächlich werde ich oft darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass ich die Leute nicht so anstarren sollte. Dabei studiere ich in 99% der Fälle nur ihre Outfits und stelle mir eben genau diese Frage. Genau dieser Gedanke ist es ja auch, der das ganze Konzept "Fashion Blog" so interessant macht. Wir sehen uns Fotos von Menschen an, die toll gekleidet sind und müssen uns nicht mehr länger wundern, wo die Damen (und Herren) shoppen. Dem Internet sei Dank!

In der neuen Kampagne von Otto geht es also um die uns sehr vertraute Frage "Woher hat sie das bloß?". Und ich muss zugeben: Bevor ich überhaupt genau wusste, worum es in den oben gezeigten Clips überhaupt geht, habe ich mich sofort gefragt, woher die seltsame Dame denn ihr wunderbar frühlingshaftes Blumenkleid hat! Die Antwort gibt's natürlich in den Clips... ;)

Ich bin dann mal weiter fleißig lernen - und lasse mich in den Pausen für den nächsten Shopping-Trip inspirieren.

Simple

   Jumper Primark (men's), Trousers and Coat Zara, Boots Akira, Bag Zara

I'm showing you a rather simple look today. I spiced it up with some lipstick, 'Rebel' by Mac. Yup, I'm pretty much into lipstick lately. I think I don't justify all those beauty buys enough, so I'm trying to increase the 'cost per wear' of my lipsticks. I can't wait to wear all the brighter shades as well in spring!

If I Were To Move Out...

Photos via ChocolateChipCouture, Song Of Style, BillieRose, Mariannan, Tumblr

Now I'm very far from leaving the nest and living on my own (I'll admit that). One of the few reasons for me to move out would be to get to decorate a whole entire place just to my liking. I have in fact already made clear to my boyfriend that if we moved in together, I'd be the one in charge of decorating. Meaning he'd get no say in it whatsoever. I think for my own place it'd be 'My way or the highway'. And while I sit in the comfort of my bedroom at my parents' place, I'll have a ton of inspiration to keep me dreaming.

Old Treasures

   Leggings BikBok, Jumper Minimum, Denim Shirt Gina Tricot, Coat Zara

As much as I enjoy a shopping spree, it's always amazing to rediscover old treasures in my closet. I was really into the idea of wearing some funky printed trousers, yet those that came to mind were all too dark. Then I remembered these leggings I bought on a trip to Stockholm some years ago. Good thing I didn't give those away!

Here's a little video we shot while fooling around in the snowstorm (hence the shakiness). Hope you like it!

New In / Studded

Studded clutch from Primark

I got this clutch last week at Primark. I shouldn't be collecting clutches since I barely ever go out, but I can't resist a nice little bag with gold studs on. Ever. How do you like this one?

Mint Is So Last Year

   Knit Cubus, Dress and Coat Zara, Boots Albany Boots

The mint trend might be gone, but I like wearing the colour every once in a while. I matched it to a pink shade on the lips ('Girl About Town' by Mac). With all the white snow and the pale jumper, a pop of colour was very much needed. I hope you like the combination!

Snowstorm

   Trousers Primark, Knit H&M, Boots Goertz17, Bag BCBG, Coat H&M

It was snowing non-stop yesterday! Crazy to think that just a few days ago I've been walking in bright sunlight wearing sunglasses. I was really ready for Spring, but I guess we all have to make the best of what we get. I hope you guys are having a lovely Sunday (and maybe better weather?)!
