The jumpsuit-hat combination kind of looks like a boyfriend style suit up look – if it wasn’t for the high wedges and the girly top. Oh and I'm not wearing any make-up. Thankfully there's Photoshop.

The days are getting colder and the sleeves are getting longer – summer tops will soon have to wait patiently in the closet until next year. But we still have some time left to pull off our summer dresses and especially the ones with maxi length should have another entry. One of my all time favourite dresses is a bandeau maxi dress with allover print and I will probably wear it until its hem is hanging in snow. And because maxi dresses are the best dresses for the end of the summer, I wanted to show you my 4 top picks from online shops:
Summer is the season of festivals – and when everyone is partying why shouldn’t your nails? I feel like every 10 seconds an event pops up on my facebook newsfeed telling me about this and that festival. I wish I had time for all of those!
My festival nail designs this summer are colourful, glittery and flowery:
First off: I'm no sporting ace, I have to admit that. I wish I was, but everytime I try playing beach volley or going skiing I end up tumbling in the sand (or snow), crying in despair over my own inability and going home looking like someone beat me up badly. But I want to encourage myself to at least go to the gym or for a run more often (where there is no evil sand or snow). I figured the best way to do so would be by doing some online shopping, which is a more pleasant activity anyway, haha. And showing off my new sport outfit actually is the best motivation for me!
I don’t like doing sports in old worn out clothes – I will sweat like hell so at least my clothes should look nice when my make up gave up long ago. Sure, you have to dress as comfortable as possible, but there is still much room for a bit of styling and matching. So here come my top 3 hopefully motivating sport looks, which look great in theory:
Cute socks are my more or less secret passion – now I put together some of my favourites from a few online shops. So when you’re looking for a replacement for your holey tennis socks of which one somehow got lost in the washing machine, have a look at the shops Monki, Asos and Topshop. Pug, Mouse, they have it all, but the one I liked best are these fancy rabbits:
Double leather? Check! Double net? Double check! I usually prefer bright colours but when you limit the colours to black and white (basically none) then it’s fun to play with textures instead. I’m wearing a leather cap and a leather pinafore dress plus a net top and net socks – and if my choker counts, then I’m wearing some velvet too. It turned out looking kind of strict and playful. But hey, I don’t think that’s a contradiction!
Sometimes I like my outfits colourful, sometimes I like them a bit trashy, but sometimes I like them classy. And which accessory makes everything look classy (okay, everything but pink leopard print tops)? Right, a real pearl necklace. I actually think that a pretty pearl necklace should be one of the essentials in a true lady’s wardrobe – and those things last forever. If you don’t want to wait for beloved family members to pass away and bequest you one, you can choose the tearless and fast way and go buy one yourself. Online I found a necklace made of white shell based pearls (click). If that’s not enough you can also get a necklace made of real pearls at the same online shop too (if you have the coin$).
Straight from warm California comes this holey sweater, which wasn’t made for cozy winter days: The “Shell bra sweater” from Wildfox, which rather reminds of stranded mermaids than of ski slopes. Completely ripped, in XXL oversize and embroidered with iridescent shells, the chaos-sweater offers a strange view. You can’t stay warm in it but playing Arielle you sure can. Who wants to spend money on expensive designer clothing usually doesn’t want to receive more holes than fabric though. You will have to think twice why you shouldn’t just put your old favourite sweater into the shredding machine for the “Wildfox look”. But despite (or because of) the destroyed look, the brand Wildfox became very popular and a variety of stars has been spotted wearing it. And if you still don’t want to do the same thing as those celebs and prefer wearing intact clothing, instead of wrapping yourself in knitted remains, remember: jeans only got cooler with the used look too.
For all the highnesses out there who dare to fulfill their childhood dream and finally become princesses: The headdress from Chromat is just right for you! The unusual eye-catcher looks like some sort of sketch. You definitely need a lot of courage for pulling off that masterpiece (and blue blood, of course). The headband which will make your subjects kneel down in front of you is a design from the New Yorker Becca McCharen. The award-winning US-American uses corset boning to create sculpture-like cage garments, which are inspired from details in women’s lingerie and architecture. Stars like Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Madonna already decorated themselves with the bulky art works, which seem to be made for impressive stage appearances. If you don’t want to tie a huge cage around your torso, you can simply start with your head.
