White Monochrome with Mango

Blazer: Mango new fall collection: Dress : asos; Necklace: Zara (new); Belt + Clutch: Asos; Heels: Nine West; White Nail polish: OPI

My man took me out for a nice seafood dinner for my birthday at the Ocean in Cervia (Italy). Spending most of the day working on my tan, I thought a white ensemble will pay off the sweating and sunburn. I was hunting for the perfect fitting blazer for over 2 years now, thanks to the new Mango fall collection the searching has an end. The material is pretty thick so it doesn't wrinkle that quickly as those lighter summer version ones that are most of the part see through. Plus to the stretchy fabric it hugs my body perfectly. I haven't found it online yet but bought it like 2 weeks ago in one of the Mango stores in Maastricht. As soon as I find the link, I will add it to the description. Eric gifted me this beautiful statement necklace, doesn't it add so much glamour to the whole ensemble? I was so excited when I found out that the stones in the belt matches the one in the necklace. It was also very difficult finding a white dress, that doesn't show your underwear and fitting nicely. That asos dress fullfill all those critera. Wish the yellow version wasn't sold out. What a darling classic summer dress.  I felt I had the perfect birthday dinner look.

True Love - The Notebook

Today's post is a little bit different....
Because of him I feel complete and being content and happy in my heart. With him I shine even more and  look even prettier in this beautifull dress.
Do y'all know the great love story of Noah & Allie in the Notebook? This is exactly what our love is like!

“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook 

I love him for his warmhearted smiles and pretty blue eyes....
 I love when he dances with me at totally awkward places...
I love when we have a good time together and he laughs about my goofiness...

 I love that he makes this "turtle move" in order to kiss me because I am soo small...
 I love beeing free as a bird when I am with him...
 I love standing by him...
 I love when he looks at me like that...
 Grrr he drives me nuts when he tickles me but he loves how I laugh out loud
 Because of me he has his sixpack... ;-)
 I love when he makes this facial expression, means he is thinking about sth. ["when do I get tf out of here taking pictures and have a beer"]
 I love when he helps me down because I was climping a 2 meter wall with 4 inch heels to take pictures...
 and can't make it myself.....
Looking in his blue eyes connects me to his beautiful soul...
Here is an abstract of my favourite movie:

Love me some classic oldy movies and music

Cut out Dress +guest blogging at junkindiggingettinlost

Dress: Asos ;Sandals: Marco Tozzi; Bag: Asos
My beautiful vintage queen blogger friend Krista from junkindiggingettinlost is on vacation with her man, in the meantime I take over and show you one of my favourite purchases recently as a guest blogger. For those who don't know her blog, she is a fashion blogger with such a unique vintage flair. She is def my daily reads and I am always so excited what she comes up next. You also find her backstage as a stylist making country singer looking very special for their music videos and photo shoots. If you missed her on my series an-old-flame-never-dies-series-, you should def check it out. She is a must read for everybody, so stop by and show her some love, she will highly appreciate it!

In those really hot summer days I tend to reach for  lightweight fabrics like this maxi dress.
What really caught my attention was the unique Cut-out detail to the front  and v-neckline with wide-set straps. The high waist fluid skirt with soft pleat detail is super flattering and gives a nice silhouette.
If you are looking for a maxi dress with nice detailing- this is the right choice!

Make sure to check out my post on her blog to see more of this outfit!

Thanks love for having me on your blog today and I really hope to meet you in person one day, we nearly did! :-)

birthday pink leather skater skirt

 skirt: Asos; Bag: Asos; Heels: Shoe Dazzle; Blouse: Zara (old); Watch: Swarovsky

While you are reading this post, I am celebrating my birthday tomorrow in Italy at the Adriatic coast with my man and having some nice days before he goes back to the states. I love being away from home during my birthday because its less stressful baking all those cakes for your guests.
I love this playful romantic ensemble with the leather skater skirt and that ruffled blouse that I had for years now. I was pretty hesitating getting this skirt at first as it was pretty pricey but I just loved the cut and that rich pink so much, I couldn't resist. If you wanna know how to design this beautiful skirt yourself, dulce candy shows a great diy video. It does not look that difficult at all. Maybe you wanna give it a try in order not to spend too much on it :-)
Another trend I love right now are white fingernails, they look amazing especially when the sun kissed your skin.
Have a great start in the week. I will be back by the middle of next week!

Eve of wedding evening party look

Blazer: H&M; Shorts: Mango; Clutch: Asos; Heels: Asos; Necklace: F21

One of my university girl friends got married coupleweeks ago in G├╝tersloh. A week before the wedding, she did a traditional german eve of wedding evening party (Polterabend). I wanted to be comfortable yet chic pulled together. A short blazer suit does that to me and is the to go outfit for not so formal occasions. Of course the weather in my hometown Bielefeld was crappy, so tights saved me from brrrrr freezing :-)

red or blue bag? Hmm ok......BOTH

Dress: H&M; red clutch & blue bag: Vintage from the 70's; Heels; Shoe Dazzle; Pearl Necklace: Forever 21; Bracelet: gifts from my girlfriends i.e. Christiane, Elly

Why are women so WHY am I so indecisive when it comes to pick out clothes to pack a suitcase or like in this case should I pick the red clutch or the cute little leather vintage bag that I got for 5€? And believe me there were more to choose of, this was already the final selection. Maybe because I just purchased them on a vintage flea market a couple of days ago and was so excited that I just wanted to take them out both? Hmmm, I don't know?
When it comes to other decision making things in life for instance business, I have a clear mind and quick approach OR when to tell my boyfriend what to do [he likes that oh yeah] hehehe ;-)

There is an interesting idiom of a swiss author (Carl Spitteler) who was awarded nobel prize for literature: "Indicisiveness is also a covardice- willcorvadice."

Is there an aetiology about indecision? Is there cure? Help! In the meantime I am a sissy and just take both :-)

Modern Monochrome/Via Uno Pumps

Faux leather skirt: asos; Blouse: Koton; Belt and Bag: Asos; Pumps: Via Uno similar; Ring: Present

Do you love monochromatic dressing? They are a huge trend this season and can be easily created with the basic items you have in your closet. Just look for  pieces that are in the same colour family. 

One way to keep your style chic and simple is to mix and match different textures and pattern . It can be as I did on this look  in black and white and throw in some gold accessories (for an extra portion of glamour) or using a different monochrome palette. It doesn't have to be bold. I was playing with different textures as leather, silk and some ruffles and bows for some touch of girlyness.
Usually I like to bring some splash of colour in the monochrome game  to lift it but not today. I wanted to keep it crisp clean and timeless with just black and white.

I have those super cute bow pumps by Via Uno in beige and black. I love their clean and classic feminine designs . Not only are they super comfortable but so affordable too. Do you wear Via Uno?

PS: If you click on asos to see the white leather skirt , you will see a Model who is 1.80 m and rock this skirt like a pro. When I tried this skirt on  it was probably 10 cm under my knees and became a midi skirt, which looks horrible on my figure with 1.66m. SOOOO I pulled the skirt up to nearly my breast so that its hitting my knees, I guess that works . I felt like the sister of Steve Urkel, just needed my suspenders :-D
