Pinspiration: 10 Winter To Spring Outfits

Finally, FINALLY the weather is warming up quite a bit over here in Germany! It is supposed to be up to 14 degrees and sunny the whole weekend and all throughout the next week, and I couldn't be any happier!

While it is not quite warm enough yet to go all out on my already planned (and shopped for, of course) spring outfits, I've been brainstorming ways to wear my winter clothing pieces yet making them more warmer weather appropriate.

Wether that's by wearing lighter outerwear like trenchcoats or a leather jacket or ditching the heavier coats all together and snuggling up in warm cardigans and sweaters - I am definitely happy to slowly start burying my winter coats in my closet haha! I also can't wait to wear ripped cropped jeans and my sneakers again, without freezing to death and this season, I really want to make an effort to try and make my skirts and dresses into an amazing transitional look.

Here are ten outfits that I found on Pinterest that all mirror my plans for taking my wardrobe into spring.




Please leave me any tips you have for styling your winter clothing pieces for spring weather, I'd highly appreciate it! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!

Snakeskin Print Pieces To Take You Into Spring!

Hello everybody!

So recently I put up a blogpost showing you 9 Dreamy Booties To Add To Your Wardrobe and one of them was this amaaaazing snakeskin print pair.
One of my lovely readers (Hi, Brigita!) commented that she would love to get something snakeskin print, but was not sure if she was a little bit late to the game and if she should still invest in this trend. Naturally I encouraged her to go out and buy something snakeskin, because I personally love this trend so much.

But then it got me thinking. Is the snakeskin pattern trend really here to stay?
Sure, we had our fair share of snakeskin boots and booties from ankle height to OTK in the winter - but what about the (hopefully soon) upcoming warmer months?

I got inspired to do some investigating browsing some of my favorite onlineshops and I am happy to report: Yes, indeed, the snakeskin print trend is here to stay and will see us through spring and summer with awesome blouses, skirts and accessories.

Here are the most amazing pieces I found:

I saw this pleated snakeskin skirt from H&M on ExtraPetite.com the other day and instantly fell in love. I knew I had to include it in this post, because you can easily wear it now with boots and a warm coat as well as come spring and even summer with sneakers and sandals and light tops. It is only €35 as well!

I saw some amazing snakeskin tops while browsing - I especially loved this one by Club L, isn't the color way so beautiful? It is only €31.99.

I absolutely loved this snakeskin print body by Boohoo, it is a great going out piece, don't you think?

Another cool going out top! It does come with matching pants, but imagine this snakeskin crop top by PrettyLittleThing with high waisted wide leg black trousers, a pleated midi skirt or a sophisticated pencil skirt - such a cool look!

Ok, now this dress by Warehouse is actually so awesome that my jaw literally dropped when I saw it on the Website! I love everything about it, from the flowy and fun silhouette to the unique coloring and how luxe it looks. It is €72.99 - a bargain for a dress like this in my opinion.

I have to admit, I think wearing a full on snakeskin mini denim skirt is something for the more advanced trendsetters! I looove the way it looks, especially styled really edgy like in this photo here.

For those of you that would like to add some snakeskin into their wardrobe without committing to an actual clothing piece, here is a cute pair of heels as well as a cross body bag I found with the same effect:



Will you be taking the snakeskin print trend into spring and summer? Which of these items would you wear? Which one is your favorite?

4 Ways To Rock Hair Accessories This Year


Hair accessories, especially huge, extravagant hair clips, will be a huuuge trend for the upcoming year.

I suddenly see hair accessories all over Social Media and in the Blogging world, such a difference to the last two to three years of effortless, barely-done hair styles and beachy waves!
If I think about it, I have not really played around with hair accessories since headbands were suddenly the must-have must-wear item in school because Blair Waldorf didn't seem to leave her Upper East Side home without one - hahaha, remember??!

So, in order to get myself a little bit more in the mood for spicing up my hair styles with accessories in the upcoming seasons, I wanted to compile a blogpost serving some inspiration on how to do just that as well as linking some affordable options that I found while browsing the Internet.

Here we go!

Bandana Scarves

I did a whole blogpost about different ways to wear a bandana scarves, that you guys seemed to like a lot! I freaking looove this trend and will for sure be rocking it come spring and summer.


The options in terms of color, patterns and overall styles are absolutely endless! 
 I found some really cute styles on Asos: 

I feel in love with this cute colorful, tropical print - how amazing would that look on a summer vacation! I also like this simple black one for how versatile it is as well as this adorable flower print one

Scrunchies

Now scrunchies have been a trend since the S/S fashionweeks last year and influencers and bloggers everywhere have been rocking them.

I am not sure if I can get on board with that very 80s looking, neon version of this trend, however, I did browser the Onlineshops and there are some suuuper pretty ones out there!

I am absolutely obsessing over this burgundy velvet one - how pretty is it! It comes already tied as a bow. I also love the satin ones, like this one in a leopard print and this neutral two piece set.

Hair Clips

Now, this trend has been shaking up Instagram since early winter I'd say - the infamous hair clip. We obviously all know - and some lucky ones may even own - the overly branded designer ones:

                                      picture source                                                      picture source

While I can appreciate those clips on my favorite bloggers and for moodboard purposes, I personally would not spend that kind of money on a hair clip - but hey, to each their own! I found some other cool clips online. Not branded, but still oversized and statement: the shell detail one you can see in the picture below as well as these leopard ones.


Hair Slides

I feel hair slides are the a tiiiiny bit more understated answer to the statement hair clip and I say a tiny bit more understated as they often come blinged out to the max as well as wearing a few of them together to create kind of a design in your hair.


I think this trend looks absolutely amazing in pictures and is definitely fun to play around with! There are so many cute affordable styles out there, like these sea shell inspired ones and these rhinestone ones.

So, what do you think? Which of these trends will you be rocking for 2019? I am definitely the most excited about wearing cute and colorful bandana scarves in my hair, but I am considering jumping on that scrunchie bandwagon to spice up my hair bun from time to time or wearing my hair tied back in a romantic low pony tail. Not too sure about the hair clip mega trend yet, however some pearly and rhinestones hair sliders really do call my name I'll have to admit.

Please leave me your thoughts below! 

Thanks for reading loves!

Weekly Sales: Cute Pieces Under €20

I found so many amazing deals and unbelievably affordable clothing pieces in my last episode of Weekly Sales that I was completely inspired to go and compile a post with sale items under €20!

I made it my mission to not just search for the most affordable items, but to choose things that were marked down so incredibly, that I sometimes had to take a double take at the price haha!

Me, personally, I am always in the market for cute bargains - what about you?


 I could not believe that this Knotted dress by JDY was only €11.99! I think it's super adorable and could be dressed up or down and paired with so many different outfits.

Checked blazers are all the rage right now and I found so many cute version in the online shops! This one by Karierter blazer Parisian €18.99 for only €18.99 has to be the best deal. I love how it looks with the sleeves scrunched up!

I thought these Striped Slippers by Stradivarius looked very unique and unlike anything else I own. I also saw some really similar designer version of these last summer, so for €16.49, these are a steal!

Everyone needs a pair of nude strappy heels in their shoe-drobe! This pair by Public Desire is an amazing choice for €13.99.

H&M has to be the one that takes the crown for the best deals, because for some reason unknown to mankind these following two pieces are only €2.99 each:




Isn't this little Topshop corduroy dress super adorable??! I think it's just the perfect color, length and I love the button detail! €20.00 is also a super bargain for Topshop quality!

PrettyLittleThing had soooo many items in the sale right now and I think you can find some incredibly cute stuff on there! Like this Denim Skirt, reduced to €11.20.




Which item is your favorite? And what are great bargains that you scored lately? Let me know! :)

How To Wear Mini Skirts In Winter


I have been absolutely obsessed with this exact H&M mini skirt ever since I saw it on Jean from Extra Petite in a few of her recent posts.

Now, I am not a big skirt or dress person to begin with - I live in my denim all year around - but I got really inspired by this clothing piece to try out some outfits that are a bit more girly than I would usually wear. And I also wanted to challenge myself a little bit more to make a mini skirt winter appropriate, which is absolutely necessary with the freeeezing temperatures over here in Germany right now!

One of my favorite ways to style a skirt is with a turtleneck tucked into it. I love the balance that it gives to the look, as your top is covered up all the way, whereas you are showing a little leg on the bottom (though I would ABSOLUTELY wear the thickest thermal leggings or tights I can find with this outfit right now!).
I also imagine this skirt looking absolutely adorable with a nude chunky knit!

I think a mini skirt with tights looks good with a wide variety of boots, however I would always opt for a heeled version, as it elongates your legs and gives the outfit a more sophisticated and put together vibe. With an oversized sweater I would without a doubt choose my OTK boots to go with the look, however, with a tighter turtleneck I would go with simple black ankle booties.

For accessories, I chose a layered gold necklace to break up the plain black fabric of the top and the ChloƩ Faye bag. I do not own this bag - which does not keep me from drooling over it! - but in my opinion, the Faye is the PERFECT winter bag haha! Am I the only one here?

Throw over your most snuggly, oversized teddy coat in a camel color and you are good to go - taking on the frigid temperatures in style!

So what do you think? Do you like the way I imagined to style the H&M skirt? How would you wear it?

9 Dreamy Boots To Add To Your Wardrobe

Happy sunday everyone!

As I am typing this I am snuggled up on the sofa with one of my best friends, eating Ben&Jerrys and watching some TV. We wanted to start watching a new show together but did not quite know which one to watch - so we decided to re-visit Revenge, which we both had started years ago, but never finished! Do you know this TV show? It is soooo good, very fast paced, a lot of unexpected turns and the main character is the ultimate girl boss! 100% recommend you go and check it out!

Anyway, I am also simultaneously browsing my fav online retailers (as I always do) because I am currently in the market for some new ankle boots. I found these gorgeous tan ones by ASOS Design, that you can see in the picture below and ordered them immediately!
However, there are so many good boots out there right now, that I really wanted to share my top selection.

Here it is, I hope you like!

Middle row: ASOS Design, Gestuz, ASOS Design 

Which one is your favorite?? As I said, I ordered the tan ankle booties, but I am also obsessed with the white boots by Raid and how cool are the Lamoda ones with the zipper detail in the back?

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome start to the week!

Pinspiration: Gallery Wall Inspo For Your Home

When I first moved into my new apartment about half a year ago, I posted this blogpost saying how excited I was to start decorating this place AND to finally create a gallery wall - a project I have put off for a couple of moves haha.
Guess what.
I still have not created a gallery wall.

And tonight is one of those nights where I am actually kicking myself for that. I don't know what it is, if I do not start with a certain project as soon as I decide to do it, I just keep putting it off. Anyone else this way haha?

Anyway, what I DID do is create a board on my Pinterest account with a few inspirations that hopefully will get my creative spirits going and give me the final push to start with my very own gallery wall.

Here is the inspiration that I am leaning towards, as you can see, still quite different vibes.
What do you think?









Which one is your favorite design?
I personally quite like the ones that have a certain color running through them like a theme, but I have to say, I do find black and white prints only very appealing as well! And how about that gallery wall with just iconic famous personalities, how cool as that?! I also reeeaally love the idea a gallery wall made out of pictures not hanging on the wall, but leaning against it on bookshelves - adds more of a unique touch!

Thank you so very much for stopping by!
