Dress with cut outs

Dress: Zara (sold out similar here); Heels: Zara; Clutch: Asos; Necklace. Forever 21; Bracelet: Tasha

2 things I have to say about this Dress:

1.) It's beautiful because of the ruffled detailing at hem, the color blocking and the cut out at the back BUT as soon as you sit in the car or sit in general it gets wrinkly all over the place GRRRR. I hate that. Why are some dresses getting wrinkles quicker than others?

2.) I got it on sale -WINNER!

3.) It's such a versatile Allrounder Piece.  Pairing with the blazer it's a fashionable Office attire and just by itself a beautiful after work dress or even perfect for a attending a wedding.

4.) My mom is such a great cook that' s the reason why my stomach makes an appearance and is sticking through the dress.

And 5.) I obviously had more to say then 2 things.... oh well, I am just a woman and just can't stop talking sometimes. If Eric would still be here, you probably would hear him saying "Why do you have to talk so much?" followed by "Why do you ask so many questions all the time?"
That being said. I hope you had a good week so far? :-)

floral shorts- 3 ways

Outfit I: Shorts: Zara similar by Romwomen; Peplum: forever 21; Clutch: Boutique in Zajecar, Serbia: Heels: Zara; Bracelets: Serbia Boutique; Sunnie: Esprit
Outfit II: Blazer: Forever 21; Top: H&M
Outfit III: Blazer: Mango; Blouse: H&M, Heels: Via Uno; Clutch: H&M; Hat: H&M; Pearl Necklace: Forever 21

Purchasing my clothes has one requirement: Versatility. I try to use my clothes to the fullest and Combine them in multiple ways to get the most use out of it. The more colour an item consists of the more colour combinations are possible as in these shorts. Even a pattern mix with the striped blouse Looks pretty refreshing and fun. As you can see, I found the perfect piece in these floral short to raging myself out! Even paired with a white blazer or a black top it would look amazing. I guess I have to wait till next summer to find out though, fall is near the corner here in South Germany.
These Shorts are sold out by Zara but Romwomen has pretty much the exact pair of these shorts for the half of the price I paid for. They have the perfect floral pattern shirt to pair it with here. I just stumbled across this freaking and pretty unexpensive online store recently and already love it. you should check it out!
Which combo is your favourite? Do you get the most use out of your fashion pieces?

Embroidery dress - White monochromatic ensemble


Dress: Mango Mango Usa; Blazer: Mango; Heels: Mango (old); Necklace: Zara (new);

Last week I was wearing an all white ensemble with a skater dress. I changed it up a little bit by this super cute cotton shift dress with swiss embroidery details and pleat at front. The three quarter sleeves makes it perfect for chilly summer evenings when going out for dinner. Eric took me out to a just gorgeous, I mean breathtaking local Restaurant in Bertinoro with a panoramic view, you can only dream of. As the pathes were pretty bumpy and steep those kitten heels were the right and comfortable choice of shoes.
As you notice I just love wearing monochromatic Looks recently (last seen here and here). Plus I wanted to show off my hard earned tanning at the italian adricatic cost, nothing works better than white right? [side note: If you get lost reading your INSTYLE magazine at the beach, make sure to change positions unless you want to be only tanned on your front side]

That Picture totally caputures the beauty of the Italian landside. We sure did have a romantic dinner at the Cadewe Restaurant that only offers food and wine from the region, so worth it.

happiness with orange

Blazer: Mango;  Blouse: H&M; Shorts: Zara (sold out); Hat: H&M (old), Heels: Via Uno; Watch: Fossil

Y'all know my love for pattern mixing, nothing is so refreshing and summery than flowers with stripes (flipes as I call it). Picking up the stripes of the blouse on the hat caused a blended in effect and makes it look like mother and daughte ;-). I wrapped a scarf around the hat, that way you can give your panama hat a billion styling possibilities and don't need to invest in other hats.
The super energetic and mood lifting orange blazer took this look to another sparkly fruity level. I feel like a frizzante Cocktail- CHEERS to the last summer days !

PS: My Absence on your blog will have an end by the mid of the week when dropping off my man at the Airport ;-(

Midi dress

 Dress: Vero Moda, Blazer: H&M; Sandals: Via Uno; Ring: Pilgrim
I wore this outfit to work the other day. A midi floral skirt made out of chiffon is light weighted and gives your skin enough room to breathe, especially on hotter summer days. A short blazer is the perfect piece to layer on when you are sitting on air conditioned offices. The sided braid hair up do complements pefectly to this romantic floral pattern and the bow sandals.

Get red right + Friday's Fab Favorites Link up

Skirt: H&M; Heels: Zara similar; Blazer: H&M; Top: Bershka; Clutch; Italian handmade leather designer clutch: Scarf: Burberry; Belt: Luis Vuitton; Sunnies: Esprit; Bracelet: Tasha

If you have followed the runways of Paris and Milan for fall 2013, you probably noticed that red is pretty dominant represented and the color of the season. I am channeling Chris de Burgh and opted for a "Lady in red"  head-to-toe ensemble. I have always loved the fiery hue as it flatters my complexion.
Key - not to look to obvious - is to play with different textures when combining red in a tone-on-tone Outfit. The scarf with it's  pattern is adding a neutral note and change to this look.
