Golden Summer Sun

IMG_8969

Today, the new school year has started and I am back to my work mode. Even though my work has a quite casual rule when it comes to clothes, I tend to dress up a bit more, at least during the first weeks :) This is one of my current favourites as I have worn it in similar styles throughout the summer and even took these pants to China with me and got a lot of nice comments on them. Combined with my black long blazer and new Mary Janes, I felt dressed up and laid back at the same time! Currently I am a big fan of white and gold accessories as my new watch works so well with gold jewelry. The sun necklace by House of Harlow was perfect for this occasion and nice sunshine!

A cold summer look

IMG_8387

Germany seems to define summer a little different right now and gives us about 20°C most days, or less. It suits me just fine though after the Chinese heat and I cherish the moments in long trousers. I do feel most comfortable in them right now as I tend to freeze. No reason to get out the dark colors just yet, though. 
I was totally ecstatic when I saw this cute Moomin shirt in a store in China. Nice apricot color and my favourite Finnish cartoon characters. It doesn't get any better than this. I paired it with some of my favourite pieces right now. The mint green pants are cool, but is it just me or do they give you the feeling of working at the hospital as well?! Never mind. I like them, they fit well and they give this outfit some more color!

Ha, isn't this bag cool? Got it from my mom, it says "Hair changes your life - just as Rapunzel!" - so true!

Upgraded Basics

After I returned to Germany, I was determined to find myself some lacey pieces. All those cute and chic girls in China wore lovely lace dresses, skirts, hot pants and so on and I was really hoping to find some sweet pieces for myself in Germany as well. I already showed you my new white lace skirt and I am in love, but of course that wasn't enough. Hot pants just won't work for me, but I found this cute little dress (aka long shirt for me) and can see myself wearing it a lot during this end of summer, upcoming autumn and even winter. I don't really care about this "no white during winter" rule. I wore this little outfit for an outing with friends and a sunday afternoon movie showing. Definitely comfortable and a fancy basic for my closet!!

China essential - the distressed T-Shirt

While being in China, I had to survive the humid heat and was really glad that I had packed these shirts from Primark. They were my life savers during these hot weeks. Whenever we went on a sightseeing trip and toured around the country, I wore one of those distressed shirts. In combination with my favourite black capri pants and a tank top, these shirts gave me some coverage from the sun, kept me dressed also for visiting temples and worked well hiding possible signs of sweat.

I am not sure if you can still get them in stores now, but I bought them in the end of June, so they might be sold out.

Back for good

It's been really quiet over here for the last week, I know. I am finally back in Germany and back on track as well. The Jetlag had hit me and my stomach had some issues with the European food as well. Finally, I am feeling well enough again and it was such fun to dress up and take some pictures as well.

This is a very cute look and gave me some inspiration for the two upcoming wedding I will be attending as a guest soon. I love that lace skirt, but of course don't want to steal the attention from the bride, so maybe will go with something else in the end. I still like the outfit and can see myself wearing this for work or a nice date night. The skirt and most of the accessories are new and I just had to take them for a quick spin the other day. Mr.B liked this outfit as well.
