Since spring is in full bloom and is even almost over. I’d like to share with you a few snaps from last week. Because I’ve always wanted to have decent pictures with beautiful cherry blossom trees. By the way, we mainly took pictures in front of white and a pink cherry blossom trees in our neighborhood.
In addition, this is for the peeps who are interested in the technical gadgets that were used in the making. We made use of my good old Sony A6000 and a 50 mm lens. I use this particular lens so that I can get a buttery and blurry background.
I know that my outfit is not the main subject here, but I wanted to mention my cute blue dress by H&M. H&M has been killing it lately. Then, I completed the look with old white Converse All-stars and vintage John Lennon glasses which you can find here.
I hope you had a great and productive week so far.
I’ve been quite lazy if want to be honest. Thankfully the weather is so beautiful here, and I tanked a lot of vitamin D the whole week. I really hope the weather will stay like this for a while but you never know.
A few days ago, I spring cleaned my closet to finally welcome spring into my home. Besides that, should we call it summer due to the temperature?
Moving on to the outfits. My better half and I spent a lot of time together on the weekends and shot a few pictures in Frankfurt.
My first outfit was casual with a pop of color. I rocked my new yellow polka dot top which you can find at an affordable price by H&M. Then I pair it with my Lee jeans and my new shoes by Adidas that are called Deerupt. I usually don’t buy new sneakers but this one caught my eyes immediately and I couldn’t say no. Also, I think that they look quite like the infamous Yeezy. Lastly, I wore these futuristic, half cut sunnies to put the “boldness” up. 🤣
SHOP MY BOLD VS. MINIMALIST OUTFIT:
On the second day, we spent much time at the park. As you can see, this look is the total opposite of the first outfit. Due to its minimalist neutral colors. I opted for colors like black, beige & brown. Sometimes, I just love switching up from bold to casual colors.
For this look, I threw on a black, basic longsleeved top and beige pants that matched well to my Classic Reebok. Moreover, I had my favorite faux-leather brown bag that you have seen already in my other posts. To finish it up, I put on “vintage esque” full black cat-eyed sunglasses to protect my eyes from the sun. 🤣
I hope you like these looks – read my last blog post here.
Straw basket bags are the must-haves for fashion conscious people and everybody who loves something cute to carry around. Not only is the straw bag a fashion statement, it is the perfect item for festivals and open-air concerts because it is lightweight & practical. Also, the one I have can be used as a Picknick bag or a beach bag. By the way, this isn’t a new trend, it’s been popular since summer ’17.
As you can see, the summer bag is available in different materials like straw, bamboo and much more. Furthermore, it comes in different shapes like the famous round/circle rattan bag, the Jane Birkin basket bag or a simply woven beach tote.
How to style straw bags
Pair it with a white top and white jeans and brown sandals
Flowy Summer dresses
Looks especially dreamy with a midi to a maxi wrap dress
Pair it with a dark jumpsuit in the color blue or black
Lastly, you can give your basket bag a personal touch if you tie a little scarf on it
Now let’s move on to my look. My straw basket bag is from Topshop and retails for almost 40€. It is inspired by the Jane Birkin bag that I have already mentioned.
A few days ago, I wore whitejeans that I fold up to my ankles. In addition, I paired my satin top with the matching orange sunglasses which shouts ‘summer’ – are you feeling this look?
In Germany the sun is occasionally shining – yay! That is why I wanted to show you three of my fave outfits that I’ve been wearing since the end of March/ beginning of April.
It’s a mix of different materials and fabrics like my thin coat, jacket and faux fur west that I threw on. In addition, I cooperated different styles like pinstriped pants, a skirt and denim jeans. The colors were dark blue and black. Also, my tops were in brighter and dark colors as well.
All my shoes are black and simple except my loafers which have pearl applications.
I hope you like the looks and please leave your fave as a comment!
Ever since my fiance proposed to me and gifted me with my beautiful engagement ring. I started my own little fine jewelry collection which I want to share with you with a brief jewelry wishlist. By the way, my collection might not be the largest but I always reach out to the things here:
For your information, I don’t wear all the rings at once because I like to keep it minimalistic as possible. The first ring is a simple band ring in 375 solid gold. The second is from CINCO and my most favorite due to its masculine shape. It is clearly a statement ring that boosts your outfit. Furthermore, it has a 24 karat gold plating on silver. Finally, the third one is a thin signet ring by ASOS. As you can see, I like most of my rings in gold. But I am currently looking for a very thin, white gold ring to mix it a little up.
I’m sure you’ve seen this Casio on my wrists so many times. Because it is the best-looking retro watch for me. I don’t need to say anything more.
The brown leather watch is the latest in my watch collection. It is from a collaboration with Saint London. If you order a watch with my code ‘ABOUTJEY‘ you’ll save 20% – so, go and check them out!
These two heart necklaces are the newest in my fine jewelry collection. This dainty necklace is from the brand brother and sisters. In addition, it is made of 18 karats white gold plating and with my code ‘About.jey30‘ you can save 30% on your order.
I’ve been eyeing this open heart pendant necklace for a while and finally bought it. Mine is collar length and is made of 375 gold. The necklace is very thin but it doesn’t bother me. Lastly, you can find a similar piece at Tiffany and co with a higher price tag.
The last necklace I’ve been wearing non-stop is the Dylan necklace by Cinco. The necklace has a square pendant. Apart from that, there’s a rose on it that gives it a further vintage touch.
