aztec print for fall

Blazer: Mango; Shirt: Pepe Jeans: old; Skirt: Pimkie; Necklace: Zara old; Bag; Asos; Espadrilles: Steve Madden similar

Mixing key pieces like this white off blazer with trendy items like this super fun mini aztec skirt is my go to fall look. I kept everything simple and aimed for a more casual look around it. This pictures were taken on our road trip to Prague in  the international hotel Prague, where we splurged ourselves for 3 nights. As we did a lot of sightseeing, comfy shoes were a high priority to keep up the looooooooong walking periods. Mission accomplished with a comfy yet chic outfit. OH and the skirt was only 13€, love bargains like that. The print and burgundy color drew my attention to it, when I saw it on the hanger. It will be on high rotations for sure in this upcoming season. I totally see it paired with a comfy knitted oversized sweater or cardigan and some boots :-)
I also get often asked how I do my hair, hmm it's wavy by nature and I don't put any styling stuff in it, as I have thick and heavy hair anyways I feel products intensify the heavy effect even more. I usually put the side parts away with a clipper, can't stand it when its flying around on my face. Pretty easy and takes less than 30 seconds. I don't have patience with my hair and that's the most quickest hair style to go for me. In general I am done in 15 minutes with the whole styling, pretty simple gal in that matter :-)

Fit for Life- Fitnessfashion @MPG @Marika

Shoes: sold out but similar Nikes; Pants: MPG; Top; Marika similar

Living and feeling a healthy lifestyle was my biggest goal for this year resolution. This means drinking at least 2-3 liter  of water as it has so many beneficials for your body. Everyday I press one lemon and mix it in my water of bottle for that extra flavor and vitamin c kick.
I distanced myself from preserved food and started buying more local fruits and vegetable.
Most of all it was super important for me to be more active as I have an office job and sit at least 8 hours a day. I integrated workouts at the gym in my everyday life and made it a habit. Every day or at last 3 times a week I spend my lunch break at the gym, as it is only 5 minutes away from my office. I always felt so super tired around 1 PM and this really keeps my blood flowing and I felt so refreshed and great after my working out session.

Don't get me wrong I was active last year as well but not as regular and my priorities were cardio training.
Thanks of my athletic boyfriend he pointed out that strength training is at least as important as cardio to build up my muscle structure and burn more fat in the long term. Short story long I changed up my training by warming up 10 minutes on the eliptical followed by strength training workouts. Each session  I focus on another muscle group. Monday is leg and butt day, tuesday I do my back and abs, wednesday is shoulder and trizeps day.  It's so important to throw in days of rest so your muscles have time to recover and get stronger. After strength training I go back to the cardio training again for 20-30 minutes. I always stretch before I start with the machines though, so that my muscle get warmed up and I don't injure myself.

I can't tell you guys, but this change made such a huge difference. Of course I didn't loose weight (which wasn't my goal in the first place) as I build up muscles but my structure improved and I am toned which makes you look fitter and thinner as well. So many people told me that I have lost so much weight and I told them that I did not but just are more toned now.
Not only did the outward appearance changed but my migraine attacks cut back as well plus my skin ( I do have acne) looks so much better now too.

Working out on a daily basis became my lifestyle and I couldn't imagine a day not being active anymore.  For a fashionista like me it naturally is so much more fun when you have gym clothes that are not just baggy and boring but kinda motivate you to look great while you are sweating. There is nothing like cute work out wear to give your that extra motivation.

I love purchasing fun colored looking tops and sneakers. My favorite go to brand is from Marika. Love the price performance ratio, the quality is just great and the clothes just hit my curves at the right place.

I came across MPG Mondeta Performance Gear workout clothes last year and ever since I just purchase my leggings and working out pants there. They fit like a glove and usually persuade with unique stylish details. Those pants above with the stripes around the hips and ankles are the perfect fun finish touch.  When I did a lot of travelling this year, I only wore those pants and my bf was like "You are wearing now on day 4th- UPS, sorry, they are just so comfy and stylish at the same time, I can't help it.
I also bought some sweaters from that brand that I am not only wearing to work out but also wear in my every day life to give a chic ensemble a sporty casual touch.

My boyfriend got me those nikes for my birthday which I am obsessed with.

I hope you enjoy the pictures that has been taking in my gym.

Have you sticked to your new years resolution? What are your favorite work outs you swear out?

Vienna Opera in light fabrics

Pants: Zara: Top: Sheinside; Shoes: Zara; Bag: Carbotti Bags via TK Maxx; Necklace: Sheinside

This year light blue shades were dominant in my closet and on heavy rotation. I wore this light flowy ensemble on our sightseeing day in Vienna in August. It was super hot on this day and the light material made it an enjoyable and more bearable. The pictures were taken infront and around the Opera. What a lovely city, def worth another visit.

In diesem Jahr stachen überwiegend hell blaue Farbtöne aus meinem Kleiderschrank hervor und wurden oft von mir getragen. Dieses Outfit war durch die leicht fließende Stoffkombination die perfekte Wahl, um im August sich die Sehenswürdigkeiten in Wien anzuschauen. Im  Hintergrund könnt ihr die Oper und das Drumherum sehen. Was für eine atemberaubende STadt mit viel Charme Wien doch ist und definitiv einen weiteren Trip wert.

Fall Wedding Attire: Embellished light blue Asos Dress

Dress: Asos  Clutch: Asos  Extensions: Bellami hair Extension in ash blonde 220gr:   Heels: Nine West similar  Nailpolish: Manhatten 59G

The weather was so unpredictable the last weeks here in Germany that it had a huge influence on my wedding attire choice. I ordered a couple of dresses with different lenght and long and short sleeves. I picked the more weather safe version and went with long sleeves in case it might get cold. Long story short, the weather turned out be perfect on my girlfriends wedding. The church ceremony was held in the old town of Meersburg in the new castle, the celebration location was across the Birnau church where I would love to get married one day hopefully soon. It's surrounded by the lake and vine stocks, a woman can't ask for a more beautiful wedding setting then this. OH not to forget to mention that I caught the bouquet.
PS: If you want to buy this dress keep in mind that the sequins are falling down regularly and easily especially when you sit down. So it is more a stand dress :-D

Das Wetter war in den letzten Wochen so unvorherrsebar in Deutschland, dass es naütrlich auch großen Einfluß auf meine Kleidungswahl für die Hochzeit meiner Freundin einnahm. Um auf der sicheren Seite zu sein und für jedes Wetter das passende Kleid hatte, habe ich gleich mehrere Kleider in den unterschiedlichsten Längen und mit kurzen und langen Ärmeln bestellt. Zu guter letzte habe ich mich dann doch für die sichere Variante entschieden und die Wahl fiel auf das atemberaubende hellblaue Kleid mit den tollen Verzierungen und langen Ärmeln. Lange Rede kurzer Sinn, wir hatten strahlend warmes Wetter- das perfekte Hochzeitswetter :-)
The kirchliche Trauung fand in dem neuen Schloß in Meersburg statt, die Feier gegenüber von der Wallfahrts Kirche Birnau, wo ich gerne einmal  hoffentlich bald heiraten möchte. Sie ist vom schönen Bodensee umgeben und Weinstöcken, alles was das Frauenherz begehrt wenn es um die Hochzeitslocation geht. OH ich sollte vielleicht nicht vergessen zu erwähnen, dass ich den Brautstrauß gefangen habe. Na, wenn das mal kein Zeichen ist.

PS: Falls ihr euch auch so in das Kleid verliebt hat und es kaufen möchtet, muss ich dazu sagen, dass die Pailetten sich in regelmäßigen Abständen lösen, vorallem wenn man sich hinsetzt. Es ist sozusagen ein Stehkleid :-D

And here some pictures of my dream Church, the photography doesnt justice, in person it's way more beautiful:
