Summer trends 2019 – 9 fashion must-haves

Summer trends 2019 – 9 fashion must-haves

Hey peeps!

I just wanted to share with you my edit of the summer trends of 2019. The trend pieces were inspired by magazines, Pinterest, my wardrobe and Instagram.

By the way, I included a lot of links to similar pieces with low to high price tags. Also, some of the links are affiliate links where I earn a tiny commission.

Summer trends 2019

1. The silk/satin dress

I still remember when silk dresses were only associated with nightgowns but I am happy that you can wear it out now. Also, I love how it comes in different styles, so it doesn’t look so much like a sleeping dress. I also prefer silk dresses with vintage silhouettes. Furthermore, I’ve been shopping much less and try to switch to silk instead of polyester. Because it is much better for the environment, lasts longer and it is much breathable for this hot weather.

2. The straw bag

Straw bags will always be there and I like how brands have been creating mini straw bags which make any outfit cute. I linked a few in different shapes and sizes. HERE / HERE / HERE / HERE

3. The Flip-Flop with heels trend

The first time I saw girls with flip flops with mid heels, I thought to myself, “who would wear this?” But ever since some brands like Toteme and Dear Frances brought out their own version of these kinds of sandals, I totally fell in love. And I could even see myself rocking these sandals. Lastly, it looks awesome with casual / laid-back clothes – trust me! 😉 . HERE / HERE / HERE

4. The Tie Dye Trend

A 2000 trend that makes a big appearance. I still remember when I was a kid, I thought wearing a tie-dye T-shirt with the matching skirt was stylish. I know… very awful  😂! Especially the harsh colors like green red and yellow were very favored.

Now, the trend is everywhere but this time I would pair it with a neutral clothing piece. Here are few pieces that I would even wear HERE / HERE / HERE

5. Vinyl sandals or ‘barely there sandals’

Kim K has made the barely-there sandals very popular. But ever since Chanel came out with their Vinyl sandals every brand started introducing their own style to the masses. The funny thing about this is that those kinds of shoes were called ‘stripper shoes’ and I like them 😩😜. HERE / HERE / HERE / HERE

6. Organza blouses

Organza blouses shout out high fashion and money. The transparent blouse  looks awesomely paired with elegant pants or a silk skirt. Lastly, you can wear it as a vest or even go braless if you are that brave! HERE / HERE / HERE

7. Low kitten heels

Low kitten heels have a comfortable heel height and make your feet look sexy. The brand By Far makes a lot of beautiful mules and strappy heels with a low heel. I bought a mule from them, and they’re really cute. Here are some of their  shoes HERE / HERE / HERE

8. Colorful bucket hats 

Who said bucket hats are boring? Nowadays, they come in interesting prints or colors. And they are a cute accessory for the beach. Furthermore, you are protecting your hair from the sun and avoiding a headache. HERE / HERE / HERE / HERE

9. Shell jewelry 

Shell jewelry are so trendy right now!! I see girls rocking beautiful necklaces and earrings. And, I love me some white shell anklets 😍!! The shells come in different shapes & colors. I think,  you’ll  find something that you like! 🙂 HERE / HERE / HERE / HERE

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.

SHOP MY COMY OUTFIT: blouse / pants / sandals / Burberry bag 

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.

HIGHLIGHTER: Kiko – Water Eyeshadow 208

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:
