it has been a couple of cooler days over here but to be honest I don´t mind. I am fed up of the Summer humidity and ready for Fall. Call me crazy but I have already researched some Fall candles and thought about burning the ones I have left from last year.
With all the social distancing and WFH it is nice to dress up on some days but can be even better to look put together and wear something super comfortable. I have found this dress on amazon while I was looking for something else and gave it a try as it was only about 15 Euros. Shipping took about three weeks and to be honest the dress isn´t 100% the one from the description (it looks like a linen material on the picture) but it definitely is nice and comfortable.
The color blocking is super trendy and the maxi dress is available in 14 different color blocking options. I went with yellow as main color, of course. I am still not quite sure what it is with my obsession with yellow but it continues for sure.
I am currently on day 4 of my #closetchallenge and I think I am doing pretty well. Have worn lots of older pieces I loved but somehow didn´t came around wearing. I you care to join feel free to tag me on Instagram.
it has been really gloomy and rainy today so we didn´t do anything than lurk around at home. I recently started outfit planning for Fall and it makes me so giddy and excited for spending the first Fall with my little girl and dressing her all things Fall. I have already found some cute things for her.
This is going to be my last #reallife round-up for the whole month of August as I am doing my #closetchallenge.
I am currently sitting at the doctor´s office taking my after birth 3 hours glucose test and waiting for it to pass. Hopefully everything is back to normal and the gestational diabetes issue hasn´t turned into a regular diabetes issue. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best over here.
Since I love a good fashion and/or beauty challenge I decided to go ahead and challenge myself to not buy a single piece of clothing including shoes/bags/jewelry etc. for the whole month of August. I have a ton of cute Summer pieces I didn´t came around to wear so I decided in honor of my closet I rather should wear theses at least once this season before getting a new piece and let the older ones sit in the closet. This will definitely surprise my husband and I think he will be very happy about this choice. I am super curious if I make it to September.
This also means no more quarantine style and wearing a real outfit every day for the whole month.
I am going to keep you posted week by week and also on my Instagram how I am doing but I honestly think this is a great way to rewear pieces of your closet. Also feel free to join me and tag me in your feed.
since we are all trying to get back a piece of normal life and outdoor activities are more in demand than ever I wanted to share our visit to the Eibsee in Grainau, Germany. We went last year and between my pregnancy and upcoming Fall content I totally forgot about it but I think now is the right time.
The Eibsee is called the Caribean Sea of Germany because of its incredible blue water. The colors are insane in real life at least for a lake.
It was a 2 1/2 hour drive from where we life. The lake has a hotel with the prettiest view as well as a huge parking lot. From there you can either go up in a gondola to the top of the 2.962 m high Zugspitze or you can go down to the lake. We went there to have a look at the lake so that wath our path.
A big restaurant is right at the lake and not far from the parking lot at all. You can sit outside and enjoy the most beautiful view of the Eibsee. We had lunch right after we arrived and it was just gorgeous. From there inspired by all the people in the water we decided to rent a small rowboat and explore the lake by boat.
Other rentals they offer are small motor boots and SUP´s. I really can´t remeber how much it cost but you can book half and full hours. We got our boat right away and headed out on the lake. Unfortunately some short time after that a thunderstorm rolled in and we had to get back to the shore.
If you don´t want to be in the water you can hike around it. It takes about 2 hours to get around and you can start either way. We only went about 20 minutes in one direction because it started raining again. The weather is very unsteady and unpredictable as the lake is surrounded by mountains, it also changes quick.
There are cute little bays and also big rock to sit which make awesome picture points. If you life in the area or passing through I would totally recommend spending half a day at the Eibsee. If you just plan on walking around the lake all you have to pay is parking and not more.
But keep in mind it is a very touristy place and although you can stay outside you probably won´t be able to keep your 2 m distance all the time.
