Party-ready in Turquoise and mint

July is our birthday month. My dad, sister and Mr.B as well as a couple of friends all celebrate their birthdays in this month and it is wonderful to have so many nice occasions to dress up for. Summer is not my favourite season though and it's always a little tough to decide for the right outfit to compensate heat, look put together and don't sweat to death on the way. I have collected a couple of wonderful dresses that always give me that polished look and make me feel instantly pretty while letting me breathe as well. This dress is no exception and is definitely a part of my summer favourites that also made it into my suitcase for Sweden and Finland.

Striped Weekend

This is one of my feel good - feel comfortable weekend looks that I could wear every day really. That skirt was a bargain during the sales at my favourite store for tall ladies and even though I've already got a chevron version, the striped one had to come home with me as well. Mr.B said he feels like I am trying to hypnotize him with it like the snake Ka from the Jungle Book would do. While I edited the pictures, I could understand him a bit. It is a rather bold print :)

While you are reading this, Mr.B and I will be on our way to Sweden and Finland. We will be road tripping for 3 weeks, but it won't be awefully quiet here. I got some posts coming up and after my return will post some of my highlights from the trip. We do want to take the time off as well to get away from technology for a bit!

School is out for summer

1-IMG_8175

Some of you might know that I work as a language teacher and finally this long term has come to an end. Don't get me wrong, I do love my job and my kids, but at some point everyone needs a break and this time is finally here. We have had some rough last weeks preparing for finals and now I can take my summer vacation. These next weeks, Mr.B and I will get some very much needed days off and next weekend we are heading to Sweden and Finland for 3 weeks. Currently, I am packing and preparing for our trip while he is finishing off his last days at work. With the changing of my tasks my outfit choices have become more relaxed and this look represents my current mood. It is inspired by festival season and I love the hippie vibe of it.

Currently loving so many things - it's important to see the good things in life more often, especially when sick with the flu, but in general as well. I want to appreciate the little things more often. 

Like these jummy pancakes
