The Kitten Question

Kitten Heels. Last year, Mr. Wang, Valentino (and Zara on the high street) came up with all kinds of kitten heeled shoes. Personally, I wasn't too fussed by the whole trend. All I could think was, "Kitten Heels? Really?", convinced that those very-low-but-still-there heels were pretty much a no-brainer on anyone's list of fashion no-gos.
And yet, I stand corrected. Seeing pretty much all my favourite bloggers sport the Kitten Heel throughout the last year, I got more and more accustomed to the look. And it's actually kind of a smart trend, if you think about it: They add a feminine touch to a look without making you go through a lot of pain throughout the day.

So there you have it - my little essay of justification for getting these babies. Being the high street girl that I am, I picked them up in the Zara sale. After looking at them in the online store for about a dozen times, I might add. A voice in my head kept reciting that saying, you know, "Life's too short - buy the shoes". And this is how I caved (oh, the sale tag did help with that, too!). I can't wait to show you a bunch of looks with these shoes soon!

Dress H&M Trend / Shoes Primark / Rings, Hair ring H&M

For a day spent at the office and in the city with the boy, I opted for this amazing lasercut number that had been hanging in my closet, barely worn, for way too long. Incidentally, I paired it with equally lasercut flats - a little bit of chic, a little bit of comfort. While going through the shops to find stuff for my boyfriend, I picked up some new band rings and immediately added them to my look - a little bit of me, I guess! Hope you like the look and stay tuned for new posts.

We'll Dance Forever

Top Weekday / Skirt H&M Trend / Shoes Bianco / Bag Zara

Exams are done for now and I'm back in full force, blogging wise. Throughout the last couple of weeks, I've been collecting tons of new ideas for the blog and I'm excited to bring you a lot of new content. For now, I'll give you a summer outfit. Oh boy, you can really tell I've spent too many days studying inside, preserving the paleness of my skin. Longing for a tan right now!

How Could I Forget

How could I forget about the cuteness of these flats? I got them in Stockholm three years ago and they kind of went AWOL in a box in the back of my closet. But I dug them up again! I'm not so much into gold, but the detailing on these is really nice. Actually makes them sort of office appropriate summer shoes in my books. Aren't they just cute?!

Tee, Sunnies H&M / Shorts Levi's / Shoes Zara

A pretty basic, easy summer outfit - my favourite denim cut-offs, a simple tee and comfy sneakers. I hope the weather stays like this since I seem to own more shorts and short skirts than there are warm days in a year in this city.
Hope you guys have a nice week!

Sponsored Video: Foster Huntington fragt Deutschland "Was ist Euch wichtig?"

„Was ist euch wichtig?“ - um den verschiedensten Menschen diese Frage zu stellen, reiste der Fotograf und Blogger Foster Huntington durch Deutschland. Der Amerikaner arbeitete als Designer in New York, bis er vor ein paar Jahren beschloss, mit seinem VW-Bus durch's Land zu reisen. Seitdem lebt er die meiste Zeit in seinem Auto und entdeckt immer neue Orte und Menschen. Seine Erlebnisse und Eindrücke können via Twitter, Instagram und über Huntingtons Blogs mitverfolgt werden. Nach ein bisschen Surfen auf seinem Tumblr-Blog habe ich schon einige tolle inspirierende Fotos entdeckt – so ein Roadtrip hat definitiv etwas für sich! Ob Surfen im Atlantik, Snowboarden oder Wandern durch unendliche Wälder – mit seiner Kamera hält Huntington alles fest, was ihm auf seinen Reisen so widerfährt. Besonders die vielen Naturaufnahmen sind wirklich schön – ein toller Anblick!

Nun war Huntington also in Deutschland unterwegs. Mit einem Campingbus fuhr er quer durch das Land und traf viele verschiedene Persönlichkeiten – von Profi-Fußballern über Blogger bis hin zu Leuchtturmwärtern. Und allen stellte er die Frage „Was ist euch wichtig?“. Dabei wurde der Foto-Blogger stets von Kameras verfolgt – einen Teil des Resultats könnt ihr im Clip oben sehen.

Die Kampagne ist teil des „1 ist mir wichtig“-Projekts der Allianz. Ein weiterer Teil des Projekts ist eine große Gewinnaktion. Jeder kann sein eigenes Foto hochladen, in dem er oder sie zeigt, was ihm/ihr wichtig ist. Zu gewinnen gibt es, ganz passend zu Foster Huntington, eine Kamera! Jede Woche wird noch bis Ende Juli unter allen Teilnehmern genau die Spiegelreflexkamera verlost, die Huntington selbst benutzt.

Dieser Artikel wurde gesponsert von der Allianz.

Dress worn as Top Zara / Jeans Topshop / Shoes DIY / Bag Zara

I've noticed I've been wearing a considerable amount of monochrome looks lately. Have black and white always on heavy rotation in my closet or did this just start with the whole monochrome trend? Either way, I went for black and white again - always a safe option, right?! To add a pop of colour, I put some pink lipstick on. Hope you like it!

New Sandals

sandals from H&M

I've shown you these sandals in my last outfit post already, but I still wanted to dedicate a post to them. These are the result of a little middle-of-the-night online shopping spree. A new pair of sandals was long overdue (really!), and guess what - these are actually genuine leather! They're buttery soft and I'd never say no to a good pair of buckles.

Plain Jane

Whole look H&M, Bag BCBG

It's super nice and warm at the moment! I wore this little ensemble to a little bike ride and ice-cream break with the boy.
I have to run now - exams are next week and I still have sooo much reading, calculating and revising to go through. Gotta keep fighting!

Ocean Obsession

photos: tumblr

I am not entirely sure what it is with me and my obsession for photos of oceans. Lately, I love scrolling through blogs that have loads and loads of photos of oceans with sandy beaches, oceans with cliffs next to them or light blue swimming pools. I remember when I was little, when the family was flicking through travel catalogues to find a possible place to stay, I used to always immediately cast my vote for the places with the biggest, bluest pools.

Here's a sample of my growing collection of ocean/water themed photos. I just wish I could dive right into each and every one of them! So you can guess what my screensaver is at the moment...

Boyfriend Off Duty

Jeans Levi's (customized) / T-Shirt DIY / Necklace H&M Trend / Shoes DinSko

The weather is finally nice again! I took the opportunity to sport my latest DIY. I wore it with distressed boyfriend jeans and added a pair of heeled sandals to make the look a bit girlier. Hope you like it and have a great week!

DIY: Off Duty

It's exam season again! Which can only mean one thing, by some twisted logic that has apparently been established with me over the past few semesters: I'm getting loads of DIY ideas. Well, maybe not loads, but I'm still feeling craftier than most times of the year.

As I'm sure I said before, I'm not really a crafty person (don't ask me to sew or change a light bulb!), but putting paint on a t-shirt, that I can do (read how I do it here). So here you have it, my latest DIY: The 'Off Duty' Tee. I hope you like it and I'm sure you'll see it very soon in an outfit post!

Cinja's Looks: June 2013

Here's a round-up of all of my June looks. I'm really happy that we got to shoot quite a lot last month. My fave outfits are definitely the more summer-y ones. Do you have a favourite?

And We Won't Stop

Top c/o Persunmall / Denim Shirt H&M / Pants Zara / Boots Akira / Bracelets Accessorize, Asos / Watch Fossil

Do you know that feeling when you realize you're humming a song you're sure you hated the last time you checked? Then you get the song and decide to keep it a secret that you ever spent money on that song. And there won't be any NP hashtag action going on either... I know you know what I mean! Well, if this hasn't been mysterious enough, just google the headline of this post and find out what I'm currently embarrassed about (and if you didn't have to google, you like it, too - ha!).

Cinja's Insta: June

Another month has passed and one half of the year is already over - crazy! So here you have a little mix of what my month was like. Mainly, I've been enjoying the sun a little (and eating loads of ice cream - can you tell?!) and celebrated my birthday. And of course, the obligatory documentary of 20 shades of nailpolish I went through in just four weeks (obviously an exaggeration, but still). I hope you guys had a nice month and let's hope for July to be awesome! As always, I have a ton of exams scheduled for this month, so more work than play, but if the results are good, then that's just as awesome ;)
