As someone who is very much interested in design (and also studying it) I have often found myself in the situation that it took a long time for a certain aesthetic, that has not been so appealing to me at first, to become something that  I like after all. The same happened with the culotte trend that started 2-3 summers ago, if I remember correctly, which I found quite weird at the time and I was also very much convinced that this silhouette would not be to my taste. Finally, at the end of last season I decided that I would give it a go and ordered this piece for myself which ended up convincing me that this trend might have a place in every woman's closet. Of course besides being extremely comfortable, the big advantage of culottes is that it is very easy to dress up or down depending on your mood. The obvious styling trick is to try out different shoes with it to get an immediate effect: normcore with white sneakers or cocktail hour with heels. On this day, where we were on a city stroll in Budapest I kind of went with the middle way and made my outfit into an all-rounder (long walks, museum, "hiking" up to the castle, having a nice dinner and some drinks). The slightly shiny texture in black worked great for me, I am sure that the new in-trend pleated versions are great as well.

Fashion│Beach Holiday Capsule Wardrobe

Beach holiday_1

August and September are undoubtedly the best months to go on a holiday and lay in the sun on a hot and sandy beach. If you are lucky enough to have booked a stay for a week or two at a tropical heaven the next thing is probably thinking about your comfy + chic travel wardrobe. In this post I have carefully considered and gathered twenty-one clothing items and accessories that are not only great as single pieces, but also can be combined very versatile. With this capsule wardrobe both casual and elegant outfits can be created, and if you have the access to a laundry service, you might even hit the road for three to four weeks with this luggage. Accessorizes, shoes and bags are included in the twenty-one items, so after packing in your bathroom and makeup bag you should still end up with a very light suitcase for your flight. If you read on you will find some more cool items besides the first selection. Enjoy and have a great holiday!

DE │ August und September sind zweifelslos die besten Monate um auf Urlaub zu gehen und auf einem heißen und sandigen Strand in der Sonne zu liegen. Wenn ihr glücklich genug seid einen Aufenhalt für ein oder zwei Wochen im tropischen Himmerl gebucht zu haben, ist das nächste an das ihr denkt wahrscheinlich eure bequeme + schicke Reisegaderobe. In diesem Post habe ich wohlüberlegt einundzwanzig Kleidungsstücke und Accesoires ausgesucht, die nicht nur größartig als Einzelstück wirken, aber auch sehr versatil kombiniert werden können. Mit dieser Capsule-Wardrobe können sowohl legere aber auch elegante Outfits kreiert werden und wenn ihr Zugriff zu einem Waschsalon habt, könnt ihr euch mit diesem Gepäck auch drei bis vier Wochen auf den Weg machen. Accesoires, Schuhe und Taschen sind in diesen einundzwanzig Artikeln enthalten, nachdem ihr Kulturbeutel und Make-Up Tasche eingepackt habt solltet ihr letztendlich mit einem ziehmlich leichten Koffer für euren Flug enden. Wenn ihr weiterlest, werdet ihr neben der ersten Auswahl noch einige coolen Stücke finden. Viel Spaß und habt einen tollen Urlaub!

Great summer days are already behind us, but even greater ones are still to come! I am currently at home, aka in Hungary, where I am spending a few weeks with family and friends before going back to Germany to work and start my next semester at the university. My first outfit from my at-home-holiday is my new favorite summer item, a versatile maxi dress with minimal print. The dress is actually cut in A-line, but I decided to add a belt to create a more feminine silhouette. This is a trick that I use quite often, and I also never forget to pack one or two belts (one with silver and one with gold details) when I travel. I prefer the elastic ones, because they never slip up or down even if there is no belt holder on my dresses or the material is sleek. Since for most women and most body shapes emphasizing the waist is advantageous I can highly recommend you to try out this styling trick. The strap sandals I am wearing are also a new addition to my wardrobe, although my summer shoes nowadays consist exclusively of single strap sandals, just in different height and heel shape. What can I say, it's a love story.
For my regular readers, yes, I have changed my hair color again. This time I took a step towards a hue that is very similar to my original hair color, but more on this topic will follow soon on the blog.

DE│Großartige Sommertage sind bereits vergangen, aber noch bessere werden kommen! Ich bin momentan in meiner Heimat, aka Ungarn, wo ich einige Wochen mit Familie und Freunden verbringe bevor ich zurück nach Deutschland gehe, um zu arbeiten und mein nächstes Semester zu starten.
