SAIL ON, SAIL ON

This really is a #throwback look! Pics were taken in 2011 during our summer vacation in Barcelona. Marco really had to convince me to take the catamaran as I worried about sitting just some centimeters above the surface of the ocean. But it was brilliant!

These pics were taken in a year I turned my life around by 360 degrees. They already show a glimpse of the person I'm today, but I was very shy and didn't have a lot of self-confidence. But from here it started to bloom and went better and better. If you don't have a clue what I'm talking about, read that post here.

I sailed away straight forward to a life that is very me and I feel free now! - And all the time together with my beloved man which I know for 12 years this month :)

Linking to Rosy's Share-in-style with the theme "sailor"! - Btw., some sailors were with us in Barca too ;)

SPOTLIGHT: YARD OF GIRLS

Blogger spotlight ///
Yard of Girls by Vanessa Miguel

Remember this fab hippie bag I bought a while ago? I bought it from that fab girl shown above. Isn't her style brilliant? I love her blog for maxi dresses, ethnic tunics, loads of tassels, embroidery, crochets and fab pics of Portugal! And of cause for her pics together with her lovely little dog :)

Check out Vanessa's blog and her shop - the tunic she wears in the last pic is actually made by herself!

LAST DAYS OF SUMMER.

 





Wearing ///
Winter Kate Jasmine cardigan
Uterque silk blouse (2013)
Kate Moss for Topshop shorts (2007)
Antik Batik bag
Urban Outfitters hat (2012)


I already showed you this outfit with my blue wall shoot (here), but these alternative shoots are to cute not to show. Also, this throwback tuesday look helps me to handle the chilly weather here in Germany. Actually, we didn't have a proper summer and this was definitely the coldest August I can imagine. 

I'm sitting here with the heating on, a blanket on my couch and wearing socks, a jumper and long pants. Ikkk, nothing, you wanna wear in August, right? Well, I leave you with these summer pics that were fun to take. I do have mixed feelings about the end of summer as there is a reason to be happy that autumn rushes in: The next summer starts for me and Marco in Los Angeles and will lead us through California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Utah!

SPEKTRE TRAF-RO


New in ///
Spektre Traf-ro blue sunnies
inspired by Natalie off Duty

My sunnies collection is growing!
After wearing an old vintage pair of Ray Ban aviators for years (which I still own and love), I needed a change. Now I do own a collection of four pairs of round sunnies: black ones from Wildfox (here), pink ones from Minkpink and Elizabeht&James (here and here) and now these blue babies!

Love how funky they are made with keeping the late 60s John Lennon vibe!

BAND OF GYPSYS


Wearing ///
Spell Designs Fleetwood cowgirl blouse
Made in Heaven skinnies
Hippie bag from Porto
Pachacuti hat (via Anthropologie, 2013)
Dolce Vita sandals (2011)
The 2 Bandits jewelry

Welcome to Chemnitz' Brooklyn bridge ;) It might not be that astonishing, but it's a peaceful place and I love the idea of lockets as a sign of love! Did you notice that their colors match with my uber cool hippy bag I bought some days ago? I'm so in love with it and my cat boy Hendrix loves it too!

That's what I call a cowgirl meets Jimi Hendrix outfit. The peacock feather hat I bought last year might be my fave hat ever and really tops the whole look, doesn't it? I guess less is more is not my style and I kinda like that fact. Listening to my fave album ever while posting this, Jimi and the Band of Gypsys Live at Fillmore East!
