fairy tale floral coat

Coat: Sammydress c/o (sold out), Ring: c/o bornpretty; Heels: Via Uno, Bag: Carbotti bags

My name is Ani, Duchess of Lake Constance, that building in the background is my castle and I will wear this coat on my next offical visit to the United states of America, enchanting my prince Eric. HA!
Wouldn't this be an item, our lovely Catherine would wear on her foreign trips? That floral coat with the gold buttons have that that princess touch, doesn't it and for a few minutes I felt like one *dream*. Thanks to Sammydress for that nice gift, it def made my heart beat faster when I received it.  A good thing I am my boyfriends princess all the time except on PMS days with or without coat.

Meine Name ist Ani. Herzogin vom Bodensee, das Gebäude im Hintergrund ist mein Schloß und ich werde diesen Mantel auf meinem nächsten Staatsbesuch in die Staaten tragen, um meinen Prinzen Eric zu verzaubern. HA!
Ist dies nicht einer dieser Kleidungsstücke,  die unsere geliebte Catherine auf Ihren Reisen tragen würde? Der florale Mantel mit den Goldknöpfen hat diesen Prinzessinen Touch, nicht wahr und für einige Minuten habe ich mich auch so gefühlt *träum*. Nur gut, dass ich immer außer an PMS Tagen die Prinzessin von meinem Mann bin - mit oder ohne Mantel :-)

Fashion challenge "Trip to Miami"

I was contacted by the travel expert Kendra Thornton to participate in her upcoming "Trip to Miami" challenge. The Challenge is that Kendra asked me to create a wardrobe for her trip to South Beach, where she’s going to be on vacation with her hubby.

Kendra is a mother of three. She is a well known travel expert and has been featured on several news channels and shows such as Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus. She wants to look chic, comfortable yet trendy while travel so I picked an unique yet colorful dress that has been seen on fashion shows that can be styled easily from day to a night look. I hope you like the looks I created for your trip?

Here is the email and style requests from Kendra:

I haven't been able to spend time along with my hubby for awhile. We are always going places for work or with the kids. It's going to be a great change just to get away and be with one another in Miami. I love this city for all of its beauty and fashion appeal. When I started to look at Miami and I found that a lot of the hotels in South Beach were quite posh and luxurious, which made me take a second look at my wardrobe. I'm in desperate need of some help. 
Part of our trip will be spent at the Delano South Beach Hotel. Gogobot has a ton of pictures of this place, and it's absolutely gorgeous. The interiors feature hardwood floors, tall windows, tufted furniture and a large swimming pool steps from the beach. Our suite is incredibly nice, and I feel so lucky to have gotten this hotel room with my husband. He also went all out and reserved me a day at the hotel's spa called Club Essentia. Going to this hotel is a dream come true, and I want some outfits that are perfect for the swanky atmosphere but can also translate to going to the beach or walking around Miami's fashion boutiques, museums and art galleries. 
When I go to Club Essentia, it would be awesome to have a look that's very comfortable that I can change in and out of easily. I'll be getting some beauty treatments and even a massage so i feel super relaxed. Afterwards, I think we'll walk around South Beach at night and find some great places to dance and grab a few drinks. For these evenings, a beautiful dress and some heels to match would be ideal. We'll probably take a look around Little Havana and maybe even catch a boat ride out to the islands surrounding Miami beaches too. A new swimsuit would certainly help me spice up my mommy wardrobe even more. I'll be taking pictures during our adventures and sharing them with all my family and friends.

Overall: Pimkie; Shirt; Arabella & Addison via TK Maxx; Espadrilles: H&M, Bag: Carbotti

When you have been following my blog recently you might have noticed that I tend to more casual looks recently. Overalls and Espadrilles conbined together has that leisure feeling to it which I absolutely adore. A nice statement necklace and bag can def dress it up.

I was cutting my hair again to a layered bob. It's just so much smarter and fresh, what do you think?

Falls ihr meinem Blog folgt, sollte euch aufgefallen sein, dass ich in letzter Zeit zu eher legeren Looks tendiere. Latzhosen und Espadrilles kombiniert versprühen diese Leichtigkeit, welche ich absolut verfallen bin. Um das ganze aufzuwerten, genügt eine schöne Kette und Handtasche.

Ich habe mir auch wieder die Haare etwas kürzer zu einem stufigen Bob schneiden lassen. Der Schnitt ist einfach viel frischer und frecher. Was meint ihr?
