Hi all,

I wish you all HAPPY EASTER holidays! I hope you could spend some days relaxing with your family and friends.

I'm staying in Berlin currently and it feels more like Christmas than Easter, because of all the snow here. We are watching Rudolph, the reindeer instead of the Easter bunnies behind the house :-). Honestly!

Have a great Easter time!

And as a loyal customer, I wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY Glossybox and thank you for a little   excitement each month :-). 

Due to it's 2nd birthday, the Glossybox came as a Travel Bag this time. Perfect for me, because I have to pack today for Easter holidays! Time couldn't be better! 

Lovely products in travel sizes. Perfect!

Sunday tunes: Lianne La Hava

Sundays are made for chillin' on the couch, reading or listening to music. At least, when the weather is so freezy. 

My favorite singer songwriter currently is Lianne La Havas...she makes me dream. And just in case you haven't heard of her, I wanted to share my favorite song and video of Lianne with you. 

current album: Is your love big enough? via iTunes e.g.

Have a wonderful Sunday evening and have a great start into the week!


ZARA lookbook favorites in April

They did it again. ZARA delighted me once again with the new April lookbook. I can’t remember only one lookbook during the last months that I didn't want to buy completely.  Awful!

I love the light and pastel colors and have you seen the blouse with the Asian print?! How wonderful!

So, here are my absolute favorites within all the favorites:

Which one is your hugged piece?


Newbies/ H&M Devided

No, I didn’t break the rule of no shopping until I got a new job! Unfortunately, it wasn’t a new job, but the return of my lovely winter coat (cause it had such bad quality, sadly) which offered me some money for a little shopping. I desperately needed a little spring refresh in my closet, although it is still so freezing outside!

Anyway, I found some nice pieces that make my soul smiling againJ.

Favorite spring shirt: colored ponies and unicorns.

Stripes, of course!

A little rockin’ spring…

and flowers, for sure. The blazer was in sale for just 15 €.

Outfit posts will follow as soon as Madame Sun decides to show up again…maybe! J Have you bought some spring essentials for spring already?! What did you get?

Have a wonderful weekend all.


Summer feeling: bikini or swimsuit?

Although it's grey outside and rainy, I started looking for beachwear yesterday. Not on purpose actually. But I saw a cute bikini @Monki and thought I should see what else is out there. I guess, it's already 3 years ago that I bought my last bikini and it's really about time for a new one. 

I was really surprised how many cute bikinis and above all, swimsuits you can find in the shops. I haven't worn a swimsuit since I left school and all I still have in mind is that those one-pieces weren't really flattering for girls with just little b***s, you know. I think with a bikini you can play a little more...flattering top to enlarge a little and a bottom to hide a little ;-). At least, that's what I did during the last years and all in black, of course! 

But I want to change this now, because of all those beautiful pieces I found - striped, polka dots, animal prints, floral prints, classic cuts, very lovely retro cuts, swimsuits with cut-outs...whatever your heart desires! I guess, I'll go with a bikini and a swimsuit. But I'm not sure which one to take. So maybe you could help here?

Favorite bikinis: 

Monki, Asos, Lisa Marie Fernandez

Asos, Asos

Dolce & Gabbana, Urban Outfitters, Seafolly

My favorite swimsuits (way bigger selection): 

f.l. clockwise: Asos, Dorothy Perkins, Princesse Tam Tam,
Roksanda Ilincic, French Connection, Norma Kamali

f.l. clockwise: Parah, River Island, Emma Cook, Bantu, MinkPink, Monki, Mara Hoffman

MinkPink, Zimmermann, MinkPink

Jets by Jessika Allen White Label, Beach Riot, BamBam

So what do you think? Bikini or swimsuit and have you already chosen one? Let me know your personal favorites and where to buy them?! 

Have a wonderful Sunday!
Love and sunshine ;-)


Dungarees: construction worker or not at all?

When I first saw dungarees appearing on the streets and on pics again, I wasn't really happy to be honest. I never had one pair of dungarees in my whole life. For no special reason, but I always thought that they're not very flattering and they can make you look really clumsy. And I thought, I looked clumsy enough even without dungarees in that time. 

Well, this time you wear them with heels and chic tops like suede blouses or shirts. A lot more ladylike, of course! And this makes it more interesting for me. Although I still have my doubts if this will suit me, but I'll give it a try and order some pieces and try them :-). No prejudices anymore! 

So here are some very lovely dungarees to consider: 

Denim dungarees: 
Asos, AJC, H.I.S, Topshop

Leather dungarees:

Asos, Whistles

printed and colored dungarees: 

Asos, River Island, Asos

special denim dungarees: 

Asos, Current/ Elliott, Pepe Jeans

What do you think about dungarees? Love it or hate it?

Have a wonderful day all.


"& other stories" - my favorites

I'm sure you all have already noticed that the new online store "& other stories" has launched last Thursday. I tried to enter the pre-opening on Thursday, but there was no chance at all. So, I had a look just a few minutes ago and I'm definitely a new fan. My wishlist was full within seconds :-). But just the wishlist. Still no shopping for me :-(. Anyway, I just wanted to post my favorites and let you know that you should check out the online store. It's amazing! 

& other stories online store

I totally fell in love with these shoes:

or the bags:

but I miss this bag that I saw on Tumblr before the opening. Actually, I thought about buying this one, maybe. Hopefully it will be available some time. 

Also the accessories are great:

And the these are my favorite pieces in clothing. Actually, there are some more, so I just picked out a few:

So, did you already picked your favorites? Have you bought anything yet? 

Have a great Sunday evening! 


Is it all about sacrifice?!

It has been quiet during the last weeks here. I know. But I don't felt very inspired and motivated currently :-(. I have the feeling to drift from winter sleep into spring fever! Terrible! But this strange feeling came over me already some weeks ago. I kind of felt overwhelmed, exhausted, heavy and full and empty in my head at the same time. Weird somehow. I don't know why...?! But I started my little change last November when I quit my job. The first time felt really good. Now it's getting a little frustrating, because I haven't planned staying at home for so long. But I guess, it's good for a reason. But to be honest, I always thought I would know where the journey would go when I'm 30! The truth is, I still don't know exactly! Maybe this is the way life goes! Maybe it's good to question some things again from time to time! Maybe I'm just a little nuts these days ;-). Who knows!?

Moreover, I somehow started to deal a lot with sacrifice this time. Not a clue why?! It just happened...I made a Detox cure and gave up on meat, fish, all milk products and carbohydrates. All vegan and maybe this makes me feel even more uninspired, because of the terrible headache. OK,  my decision. 

Furthermore, the last time I shopped was beginning of the year....my Lala Berlin jumper which was on sale. Since then...NOTHING! And this is really hard due to the lovely spring trends in all shops now and not to mention all the sales! This is hard for me! Maybe the headache is a kind of withdrawal symptoms, because of the shopping stop?! Hello, my name is Katharina and I'm a consumption victim! My decision, too! Nevertheless, I was so overwhelmed with all new trends, fashion weeks that I always had the feeling to buy more and more to be up to date. At the same time, it didn't felt good anymore. Even when it comes to this blog, I felt some kind of pressure. And I guess this was the worst thing. Because I always wanted to do that for pleasure, for the passion and joy of fashion and everything that comes with it. Not a good base for a blog, I think!

So, I also reduced browsing during the last weeks. Last week, I was online on Thursday for the first and just very short time to send some applications, do some banking and browse through my favorite blogs and I tried to enter the pre-opening on "& Other Stories" (which wasn't possible at all). 

I don't know, but I guess, I just needed a break and a little less of everything. Maybe sometimes you need some sacrifice to really appreciate and love things again!

Have a wonderful weekend!
