The printed bohemian blouse II How I met my outfit

The printed bohemian blouse


(ENGLISCH/DEUTSCH)

I think I don’t have to tell again, that I’m totally in love with the current Hippie / Bohemian trend. But it doesn’t have to be „hippie“ from head to toe all the time – sometimes it’s enough to add a key piece to give some bohemian vibe to the look. Am I talking about my new skinny jeans? Of course not. I’m talking about my new printed blouse. Love at first sight.

Mal ehrlich – gibt es ein nerviges Wehwehchen als Blasen an den Füßen? So sehr ich mich auf den Sommer und die „Barfuß-in-den-Schuhen-Saison“ freue, so sehr graut es  mir auch davor, all die neuen Pumps und Sandaletten einzulaufen, die ich so über den Winter angesammelt habe. Versteht mich nicht falsch – ich freue mich natürlich riesig, meine neuen Schätze endlich tragen zu können, aber wir alle mussten wohl schon mal erfahren, wie undankbar neue Schuhe zu unseren Füßen sein können. Umso glücklicher bin ich, euch heute meine neuen Retter in der Not vorstellen zu dürfen:  den Compeed Anti-Blasen Stick und die Compeed Blasenpflaster!

#storyofmylife: Lately at H&M: It was clear from the outset that I wouldn’t stick to my intention to only buy a new bag and be home again in about one hour. The question is, why we are making these kind of plans again and again, when it never comes off. Maybe we try to give destiny a leg up!? Because honestly, the best buys happen, when we little liars vow to ourselves to quickly get into the city to only buy a specific garment. I have no idea, why it’s always like that, but when it works, I’m fine with it.

In love with... WOOL COATS II How I met my outfit

In love with… WOOL COATS

(EN/DE)

„In love with… CAPES“ and „In love with… OVERKNEES“ follows today „In love with… WOOL COATS“. There was a time in my life, I refused to wear coats and winter jackets. I decided to wear three sweaters underneath my summer jackets and freeze unmovable through winter. I really can’t tell why. But if that wouldn’t have been enough – I had the same „problem“ with boots once, maybe it has been at the same time. „Who’s this crazy girl wearing a denim jacket and ballerinas in winter?“ That was me. But luckily these days are over and I’m in love with coats and boots since years. At the top of my „although I already got one, I need to buy some more-list“ currently stands a wool coat.

Boyish Boyfriend Charme II How I met my outfit

„Are you a boy or a girl?“ he asks me. „A girl!!“ I answer disgustedly. This happened some years ago at a festival. It was dark and rainy. I was wearing wide jeans, sneakers and a rain jacket. The hood covered my unmade-up face. When I think about it today I understand that it wasn’t clear if I’m a girl or a boy. But at that time I brood about it for a while – am I only clearly recognizable as a girl, when I’m wearing typical girls clothes!?

In love with... OVERKNEES II How I met my outfit

In love with… OVERKNEES (under 200 €)

(EN/DE)

The first post of „In love with…“ was about CAPES – and here comes my second declaration of love. This time I’m „In love with… OVERKNEES“! What has been THE trend in the 1980s, obviously quickly became a fashion faux pas, although Julia Roberts truly casted a spell over us with her role in Pretty Women despite (or maybe just because) wearing overknees. That has been in 1990. Does it really took about 24 year, that trendsetters were able to replace the shady image of over knees? Not exactly. Over-the-knee boots already make a comeback since some years, but this fall/winter they finally made it to the must-have list.

This is the second look me and my friend Princess Leia shot on saturday. As I already told you, the two looks we did have nothing in common. You can have a look at the first one here. I know, I know, my friends name isn’t Princess Leia, her name is Sarah. But to give sense to all of that, I decided Princess Leia from now on is my new nickname for Sarah. I think she won’t like it, but hey, she’s a got a female name including a title of nobility. It could have been worse, like Jabba or something.

Yesterday, my friend Sarah (wo already took the last photos for my blog) and I shot two looks, that couldn’t be more different. You can see the first one in the pictures. Normally, I just dress how I feel to do – fashion as an expression of mood! But while we were shooting these two different looks I experienced once again, that you not only dress yourself depending on how you feel, but you also feel depending on how you’re dressed! So, fashion isn’t only an expression of our moods, it also effects on how we feel.

Inspired by the grey weather, I decided to go for a grey on grey look last weekend. For a long tome now, grey is one of my absolute favorite colors when it comes to clothes. Some years ago it has been so bad, that I imposed myself a „grey-ban“. But it didn’t last long and my wardrobe still is full of grey clothes that you can combine easily. I kind of think grey is my black. At least when it comes to sweaters and cardigans.

Do you remember the time when skinny jeans haven’t been even a little cool? And even straight leg jeans have been a no-go for a long time. There was no choice: Your jeans had to be flared. And the bigger the flare the better. I loved it. And I remember how confused I was a couple of years ago when the trend moved from flared jeans to skinny jeans. I refused to wear skinny jeans for month and kept looking for flared jeans. „I’m not going to wear these strange pants.“ But I reckoned without the fashion industry. No matter which jeans I was picking up from the table, skinny legs appeared. I gave up hope and bought straight leg jeans first. And it felt like they were so damn skinny. But this feeling changed quickly – my jeans got skinnier and skinnier and I started to like it more and more. And ever since jeggings appeared, jeans can’t be skinny enough.

I’m not really into ballet. Purple is one of the colors I like least of all. I prefer my hair loose. But even so I love todays look. And that’s the reason why fashion is that fascinating – it surprises.

There was a time, when I was much more faster disliking a style of clothing, a trend or a specific garment. It’s different today. From time to time there are still trends I think „now way“, for example the infamous Buffalo Boots or the black plastic tattoo-necklaces, that seem to be coming in fashion again. But besides this, almost everything gets its chance.
