Spring lookbook 2019

Spring lookbook 2019

Hey peeps!

This is my first spring/summer lookbook. These are a few of my favorite spring outfits that I wore a few weeks ago. Also, these are clothing pieces that I like to wear over and over. It is a mix of minimalism, animal and checked prints . In the warmer months, I prefer to wear light pants, dresses and skirts.

Now let’s move on to look no. 1

This first look is monochromatic because I only focused on black and white colors. It features a pair of black shorts and a horizontally striped shirt. By the way, long shorts are very on trend and can be paired with a blazer, a simple shirt, sneakers or sandals .. you see, almost everything 😉 I finished the look off with my black shoulder bag and squared gold necklaces. Oh, how can we forget my white strappy sandals? These are the infamous Zara sandals that are everywhere on the internet right now. They have a midi height and are surprisingly comfortable.

SHOP MY MINIMALIST LOOK: top / long shorts / shoes / bag / necklace

Look no. 2

I can see myself rocking this outfit until I die. It might be basic to you but I feel the comfiest in this. Furthermore, these are clothes I like to wear if I want to hang out in the city or drink a coffee.

I’ve been living in this blouse (another striped top xD)  and the great thing about it is that it goes with everything and can elevate anything immediately! I paired my blouse with these beige colored pants. What I adore about these kinds of pants is the material because it is casual and made of linen. Which you can wear in the warmer season without feeling sweaty and uncomfortable. Moreover, I wore a pair of Hermes Oran looking sandals but these ones are by Dune and cost much less and are of great quality! Finally, my Burberry bag made an appearance and completed the whole outfit.

Look no. 3

is the last one in this episode and has a more hot summer vibe. This look features another blouse that I styled with a silk skirt that has animal prints. I wrote about animal prints a while ago if you fancy a quick read :-). This skirt is a statement piece because of the print. Therefore it can make your entire outfit look put together and kind of exciting?!

Lastly, I wore brown strappy sandals which go well with many colors in my wardrobe. Also, the sandals are so comfy and I can walk in them all day due to the low heel.

EYESHADOW: Bareminerals – You had me at Merlot / Alverde – 07 Cosy Copper
HIGHLIGHTER: Kiko – Water Eyeshadow 208
MASCARA: Maybelline – Lash Sensational
LIPSTICK: NYX – Teddy

Today, I want to share a spring/summer inspired makeup look. Whenever I want to experiment with beauty, I first head to Pinterest and then to a few makeup artist accounts in Instagram to get inspired. I’ve noticed that bright colors like pink or orange are very trendy right now. As you can see, I used matte bright colors on the eyelids but you can use a glossy eyeshadow too. Besides, glossy lids are a must-have for the hotter season!

For this simple makeup look, I kept the lips in a neutral nude color, so that it doesn’t steal the show of off the eyes. The skin is not matte rather dewy. This can be achieved with well-prepped skin. I like to exfoliate my skin and follow up with a good moisturizer. Since I don’t use foundation, I like to cover up my blemishes and hyperpigmentations with my trusty NARS concealer in the color Amande. It is the best concealer ever. Due to the color varieties, undertones and the creaminess of it. Moreover, I don’t like to bake my eyes with powder because of the cakiness. As I am getting older, I don’t want to dry out the delicate eye area. 

Moving on to the eyes, I used my blush by Bareminerals as an eyeshadow base because I don’t like to follow beauty rules. It is a reddish burgundy color but on my skin, it looks more pinkish. Then I added a copper tone near my eyelashes so that my eyelids have more dimensions.

Next, I drew on my eyebrows to make my eye makeup to pop more. Then I used the blush that I used for my eyes, on my cheeks.

Finally, I completed this spring/summer inspired makeup look with a nude lip and a gold highlighter on the areas that I want to accentuate. Like my nose, the cupid bows and under my eyebrow and on the cheeks.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look and see you in the next post!

A weekend photo diary in Büdingen 30-03-2019

Happy first day of April!!

Today, I wanted to share a few snaps that Jan and I took on a sunny Saturday. We visited Büdingen, it is a small town that is 50 km away from Frankfurt. In Büdingen we went for a walk, drank coffee and enjoyed the spring weather. By the way, I am planning to do more photo diaries in the future, maybe 1-2 posts a month. 😉

I hope you like it.

The strappy kitten heels are the It-shoe that everyone and their mommas need in their wardrobe for spring and summer 2019!

I am sure that you have seen these shoes on many bloggers and fashionistas. The sandals are very 90s inspired due to the style and especially the tiny kitten heels.

What I love about my strappy kitten heels

The ones that I have on are from Zara and are only available in this milk white color. But brands like Topshop have similar sandals in black and red. Mango currently has a white and orange one. I was about to buy the orange sandals because the color looked good on my skin. In addition, the Zara and Mango sandals look like the infamous Row sandals. But these ones have a more affordable price tag and look expensive.

I love the overall square shape and the minimalistic style of the Zara sandals. Furthermore, the heals have a mid height which I’ve worn at home, to test how comfortable they are before keeping them. And, I can’t believe that I’ve become a fan of kitten heels because I preferred chunky heels. Lastly, the sandals are made of leather and cost 56 EUR.

How to style this 90s inspired sandals?

I don’t know where to start because there are no limits because these kitten sandals can make any outfit look instantly put together. Therefore, I can see myself styling this with a flowy midi skirt, ankle jeans, a summery dress and lots of other stuff. Also, I will go with brighter colors like white, pink and blue. I wish the weather would be kind so that I can finally rock these sandals and leave my trusty grey coat in the cupboard.. ugh!!

SHOP THE SANDALS

Here is my list of other beautiful sandals for every budget. I looked for different colors, prints, height and styles.

And here are a few Zara links:

Lastly, are you a fan of the 90s kitten heels or do you prefer a chunky heel?

Experimenting with bold colors

Experimenting with bold colors

SHOP THE LOOK: RED TURTLENECK SWEATER // JEANS // SHOES // BAG

In the colder months, I opt for the same coat and scarf as my safe canvas. Now, as it is getting warmer, I like to experiment with bolder colors. In todays blog post, I want to show you what’s underneath my grey coat. Because my winter clothes tend to be grey, white and blacks.

To add some color to my outfit, I picked this new turtleneck sweater by Pull&Bear via Zalando. You must size up because the sweater is very small. I bought a size M. I instantly fell in love with the dark red color. And this is the first red that suits my skin tone because brighter reds with a blue undertone make my skin look ashy – haha! Also, I wanted to mention that I like to inject new pieces into my existing wardrobe. I also don’t believe in buying the same or similar stuff only for the sake of fashion. I find it even more interesting to style a piece that you have in several ways.

Underneath the burgundy sweater, I wore a shirt to keep myself warm. Furthermore, I styled it with my favorite pair of black jeans and some ankle boots. In addition, I didn’t want to tuck my hair back as always and left it in its curly state and let the bangs out. Finally, I wore silver thick hoops and finished my look off with a slouchy brown bag by H&M. I bought the bag again because my old one was broken. I really can’t wait to style this burgundy sweater with beige pants or with my vintage Levi’s jeans and white Converse Allstars. I hope you enjoyed this look!

See you in the next post!
