The ultimate five feel-good must haves every fashionable woman needs in August 2017

2017-07-01 12.22.48



   Hey, friends! As promised, I am back home and writing to you on a relaxed Friday evening. It is the first time in a long time that I am spending the whole evening at home. However, the weather has changed in the course of the day and most of my friends are still on holiday and are returning on the weekend. So, I have decided to stay at home. As my holidays have just started, there are going to be enough occasions to go out in the evenings…

   Although I am not really willing to think about the time when my holidays will be over, which is in August, I am already looking for all those things that might help to make me stay in this good-feeling place even when it is time to go back to work. Honestly, guys…in the past few days I have thought a lot about quitting. However, on the other hand, I need the money. (Who doesn’t? Winking smile) I am sure a lot of you are familiar with this situation. At least, I hope that it is not the majority of my readers who earn their money with stuff they love to do. And if so, please do not tell me about it…It would make me so jealous!!!

   That’s why my only choice so far is to go the feel-good way and find as many reasons to feel good as possible. Maybe one day something better will come along…Maybe you are in a similar situation or you are looking for reasons to feel good just to feel good. So I hope that my list of the ultimate five feel-good must haves for August 2017 offers some inspiration for you as well…

1. Buying a comeback bag

    I am so appreciating the comeback of some of the greatest labels in bag design that have almost been forgotten by the fashion world.

2. Transitional knits

   August in my area is the season when the days can be quite hot and the evenings cold. Even today, while I am sitting here with you on my desk, the weather seems to ignore the fact that it is summer. The sky is completely dark and it is raining incessantly. These are the moments I love to pick one of my transitional knits. And for those of you who have been following my blog for some time, you may remember that I am a huge fan of merino sweaters and I have been always ready to buy the more expensive ones as I really consider them as a real long-term investment. Simple and plain, however, do not work this season. Colorful, eye-catching and fabulous are the key-words…

3.  A striped shirt dress

   Stripes are going to stay with us this and the next season (hopefully forever Smile). This evening I took an evening walk through my sweet little town. I love to stroll through the beautiful and romantic monastery garden in the early evening. The sunlight (if present) is amazing at that time and the smell of all those medicals plants is a wonderfully sensual experience.

I wore my lovely shirt dress that I’ve just bought on my trip to Lake Constance together with my Vintage Levis 501, a navy blazer and my Stan Smith…I felt really good while wearing this outfit and I love that you can wear the shirt dress also with pants. Together with the short blazer, the outfit looks really cool.

DRESSES OVER JEANS  Now that denim fits are more relaxed, so is the styling. Hence why we’ve seen a number of fashionable ladies doubling down on their proportions. An oversize shirt dress + straight-

4. The perfect summer fragrance

   I am a big fan of trying new scents. That’s why I have a variety of smells at home that I am wearing on different occasions. However, there is one fragrance that I have bought a few weeks ago, that has become my signature scent of Summer 2017.

Philosykos by Diptyque

Wearing this amazing perfume feels like an endless holiday trip as it reminds me of long walks through golden summer fields and woods with the perspective of going for a swim in the sea soon. It also evokes these careless childhood summer memories when the one and only thing you had on your mind was to leave the house as fast as possible to play outside in the lovely summer sunshine, just living in the moment…I love that feeling and that’s why this amazing fragrance is going to become an integral part of my wardrobe.

5. Creativity

2017-07-14 20.07.50

   For me, one of the most essential feel-good must haves of August is going to be my creativity and all those things that help stimulate it. In my regular job, I do not have a lot of space to be creative or better said I rather feel forced to be creative. Honestly, guys, this is not the form of creativity that I need or want. When I am preparing my posts I love to lose myself in books, fashion magazines and various accessories that might fit into the post. Even when I am outside, I am always open for new inspirations for my next posts and I can find them everywhere…in nature, on the market, in the streets…This kind of creative work helps me to keep my mind busy and active in a positive way and distracts me from negative things that come up in every day-to-day routine. At the same time, this positive mindset provides more room for creative thinking. It is really worth giving it a try! Buy books, magazines, flowers or anything that appeals to you and that you can afford and see what you can do with it.

The ultimate 7 Feel-Good must haves every fashionable woman needs in January 2017

Hey, guys! After almost three weeks of winter holidays, I should feel totally relaxed right now. But I don’t. It is the last weekend before I have to go back to work on Monday and motivation is the last thing I am feeling right now. The holidays have been filled with many wonderful moments – visiting family, friends, parties, eating in restaurants …- however, I have missed one important part. Going away for a few days, relaxing somewhere in a beautiful hotel by the sea or in the mountains…I cannot help but missing this essential part of my holidays. Or maybe it is just that this time I have been unable to find some relaxation during the few hours spent at home… It`s no use moaning. Monday is approaching and it is approaching very fast…So, my personal challenge of the weekend is to motivate myself for going back to work on Monday… So I am about to outsmart my brain in the best possible way I can by finding beautiful things to think about. Apart from looking for wonderful places to spend m…

Look of the week–We love ethno!

Good evening sweethearts! I have just returned from another exam of one of my students and about to leave for an evening with one of my favourite girls. We are going to have some drinks in a bar not too far away from home which is totally ok with me. The week was tough and the weekend is going to be tough as well. As the weather is getting more and more beautiful, it’s the invasion of tourists coming to my sweet little medieval town Seligenstadt. So the weekend will be filled with one guided tour after the other…Definitely time to chill out a little bit this evening… Before I am going to leave, I just wanted to share with you my look of this week which is all about the summer trend 2016…Ethno Style. What I love about the outfit of Alessandra Ambrosio is the combination of a very cool and minimal denim style with a white T-shirt, grey boots and statement bag. The fringed Ethno cardigan in the Spring/Summer colours 2016 sets the perfect accent to this timeless and stylish look. Guys, I h…

You want to be more Parisian wherever you are...?

Hey guys! I am happy to be back here with you and to have found some time to write to you. It is a little bit like coming back home. Finding the time for writing a new post wasn't as easy as I expected this week. Although I haven't worked at all, I enjoyed a lot of my freetime with my wonderful friends and this was really fun and necessary. By the way, they all are really fashion-addicted
and everyone of them has their own style, which I adore so much. I am totally happy about having a French friend, who in this moment is on her way to Paris in order to spend some time with her family. She is just adorable and the Parisian, I would say...As French was my favourite subject at school and as I studied the language for many years, I fell in love with the French language and the culture very early. And for over all these years I couldn't stop myself from asking myself the question of why we admire these beautiful Parisian women so much and what makes them so adorable and unique.…
