Happy about the summer comeback! <3 How I met my outfit by Dana Lohmüller
Happy about the summer comeback! <3

(EN/DE)

The last weeks haven’t been summerly at all. So I wished badly for a summer comeback. At least for one summerly day, with blue skies and warm sunshine. Without summer rain. Although the weather forecast didn’t sound promising, we decided spontaneously to spend some days at the North Sea in the Netherlands. If we won’t get our sunshine, we’ll get at least some beach and sea days. We arrived on Wednesday evening, when it already got dark. As soon as we got our things out of the car and made the beds, it started to rain and storm. And with this sizzling gas heater, we had to turn on, because it was really cold inside, it kind of felt like an untimely, but cozy fall evening.

That's why I have been so excited for summer to come! II How I met my outfit

That’s why I have been so excited for summer to come.

(EN/DE)

Each and every year I can’t wait for summer to come! But when summer’s finally there, I wonder why I have been so excited. It’s the first hot summer day. I’m lying on my bed, the sun is shining through the windows. I guess sun did that for a while, because it became super hot inside my flat. My good-morning-coffee makes me sweat even more. I need to take a shower. A cold one. What now? Blow-dry my hair. Bad idea – I could use another cold shower. But there’s no time for it. Make up. It’s way to hot for make up, but I think I can’t go without, so I just put on the essentials: mascara, powder and rouge. Until we’re leaving, I’m sitting with my bikini on my bed and think about what I’m going to wear. Outside it’s even more hot. I augur ill. Sure thing – my car is standing in the sun. I open the door and a heatwave rolls over me. I quickly open the windows and get out of the car again. Five minutes later it didn’t get better, but we’re going to hit the road. The steering wheel is unbelievably hot and I start to imagine how it would look like when it would melt. We arrive. We lay down our beach towels, I walk barefoot through the sand into the water. I can feel a small breeze.

Nowadays it happens extremely rarely that I receive a classical text message. My friends mostly text me via Whats App or they just call me. The few text messages I receive, mostly are notifications about missed calls or advertising. Usually there’s nothing interesting in it, so from time to time it happens that they stay unread for a couple of days. It’s not that the tiny little numbers that appear in front of the message symbol don’t annoy me, but often I’m too lazy to get rid of them. Does it sound familiar to you? Sometimes I’m so lazy that I let myself get bugged by these kind of tiny little matters, instead of taking a minute and get it done. The day before yesterday I received a text message one again and I don’t know what came over me, but I read it immediately, as if I knew I was going to read something interesting: an invitation to Mangos pre-sale.

Maxi dresses – an essential piece of clothing. Since years. And I’m so happy maxi dresses stay in trend. You can buy them for almost every occasion – for festivities, for a shopping trip or for a day on the beach. This weekend the weather means well for us – it’s unbelievably sunny and wonderful warm in Cologne. And if there’s something I love aside from these sunny days, it’s the mild summer evenings. But not only because of the pleasant temperatures and the golden sunset light, but also because of the wanton mood you can feel almost everywhere. You can see people are more happy, pleased and relaxed. It’s the same for me and these are the kind of evenings I love to wear maxi dresses that look light and casual.

Lazy Sunday: Bedtime-Stories II How I met my outfit

Lazy Sunday: Bedtime Stories

(EN/DE)

„Once upon a time, very long ago…“ that’s how every phantastic fairy tale and every enchanting bedtime story starts. Remember the days, you had nothing else to do, but hide under your bedclothes wearing you favorite pajamas, close your eyes and listen to a wonderful story. Our bedtimes stories became others, but from time to time I dig out my storybook and with the greatest amazement I realize that some things may loose it’s magic when you grow up, but fairy tales will never belong to these things.

April showers bring May flowers. I don’t really see that right now, cause it seems as if May would shower, too. The last days haven’t been as sunny as they should. But we finally would love to wear our summer dresses, relax in the sun, sit in front of the cafes and have a barbecue in the park. Slowly I’m getting a little impatient and each morning I wake up, I at first have a look, if it’s sunny outside. And while I’m sitting in my kitchen right now, it really seems as if the sun is shining today. I’m hoping it will stay this way. Cross your fingers!

The first Coachella weekend is over and I would have liked to join it so bad. California, sun, music, art and beautiful styles – that sounds great! At the moment you can see the Coachella star-styles almost everywhere and I’m totally crazy about the looks. I love these playful festival-styles with flowers, embroideries and lots of accessories. Sadly, I’m not going to travel to California next weekend, but if so this would be my Coachella Festival Look!

Does it almost feel like summer for you, as well? Cologne anyway has got a sun-subscribtion and I hope it’s not a trial one, but one with a lengthy contract term. But it doesn’t only feel like summer, it also looks like summer: in front of ice cream shops people stand in queue, the tables in front of cafés are highly coveted, crowds of people flock to parks, almost everywhere you can see sunglasses, tank tops and shorts – the city is buzzy and colorful again. But every year I ask myself: „Where have they been the whole winter?“

Black Denim Hippie II How I met my outfit

Black Denim Hippie

Did I already mention that I love denim? I love it in every shape and color. If there would be a ranking about my happiness about new clothes, probably my happiness about a new denim item would be ranked before my happiness about new shoes. And this one already is really great. You can imagine that I leaped for joy, when I found the black-grey skinny jeans and the black-grey denim jacket. It seems as if they were twins, got separated to grow up with two different labels. Reunion is done right now.

Spring has finally arrived and I can’t tell how much I looked forward to wear just a jeans and a lightly shirt again at last. Get rid of the greatcoats and the warm boots. To me this outfit is the absolute casual-classic. I love jeans, especially distressed jeans, cause they always look pretty cool. That’s why I’m ok with the older generation asking me from time to time why I am wearing damaged jeans. That reminds me of a friend of mine gotten hit by an older person with a carrier bag some days ago, because her jeans were having a hole as well. First she was a little confused, but when he started to rail against her jeans she started to laugh about it. What does the story tell us? Beware of carrier bags when wearing distressed jeans.
