2 patriotic looks for the 4th of July – dressy casual and sporty chic…

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
am sharing two great 4th of July inspired looks with you today. The
color combination red, blue and white always gets me and I also love to
wear it throughout the year. So for this years holiday look I have
styled two outfits depending on where you are headed to celebrate such an
important day in history. 

Be sure to check back for an awesome U.S. themed cake on Wednesday. I am sure you have all the ingredients at home.

First of all I love a white button down. It is chic on one side and can be dressed up in so many ways and on the other hand it is a total staple item to my closet and if I am in need of a quick look I put on a button down / pair of jeans combo and leave the house. But that doesn´t mean that you look isn´t changeable. I added a pair of red espandrilles and a red headband to the look. Also lipstick totally matched the red hues of my outift. The bag is from Tommy Hilfiger and a sale find from years ago but totally matches the red, white and blue stars theme. I would categorize this look as dressy casual since it is not to much to still wear to a casual ocassion but a button down is a lot more dressier than a t-shirt.

I would say this look is sportive chic not only sporty. And how gorgeous is the stars & stripes pullover I ordered from Asos. The brand is called Pull & Bear and a total match for the theme, also it is super soft insid so you won´t freeze if the night gets chilly. I have worn it the whole weekend here. Hasn´t been that warm. 
Of course I wanted to go on with the same color theme for my second look. The blue dress I am wearing is about 4 years old but you can get a blue shirt dress almost everyhwere. Also my handbag is still available. Oldie but goldie. Needless to say more.
Another real American classic is my matching pair of Chuck Taylor sneakers. Totally love them. They work for so many looks and add such a cool and sportive vibe to the look.

Casual Saturday #10….


Hi dolls and happy Saturday,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
our first week after vacation is over and it was let´s say okay. I was a little sad that our trip was over so fast but that is how it works right. Good times roll by fast.

We didn´t do too much this week since we came home Sunday late afternoon and imidiately visited my parents and afterwards we went to Florian´s parents for some indian dinner. So I was still unpacking on Monday and doing lots of laundry on Tuesday.

I made a flag cake in honor of the 4th of July and it tasted so good. It really is a easy recipe which needs a small amount of time and ingredients. 

Since eating so much pizza, pasta and bread during our vacation we decided to eat low carb for a while so I made this no carb salad with smoked salmon, onions, olives and eggs.

I am planning on a mexican evening plus dinner so I was thinking about a desert and immidiately Churros came to my mind so I was searching for a recipe and I tried it out yesterday (guess this was our cheat day).

I ordered some cooking equipment. A tin for pie from Kaiser and a dough cutter, a zoodle maker with a matching low carb cookbook and so beautiful kitchen towels – everything from amazon.


Also what do you think about those jeans from Vila. They have a flared hem and I think they are so much fun but I am not quite sure.

I also found this blouse from Vila on sale and I think it is a super versatile staple piece for your wardrobe and on sale for only 12 Euros. Who could resist ?

Another thing I have been dying to try are theses brushes from EmaxDesign. They are dupes to the artisbrushes – which cost a real fortune in my opinion – and I am really looking forward testing them.

I got a ton of make-up products from the Kiko Milano store in Bolzano so there is going to be a seperate post on the products soon and we also bought some stuff at the Carpisa store. They have the cutest bags with a little turtle logo so I could not resist at all.

The sixth series of Modern Family is out we are watching non stop. So glad something is continuing since we are still waiting on Game of Thrones.
That´s it. We are attending the line dance summer festival tonight and might for sure have some indian food tomorrow. 
As always thanks for stopping by. 
Take care. See you.

Hi dolls,

you know how much I love a good lace shirt don´t you?!. And when I found this one I was head over heels. The lace pattern looks like from a former century so so pretty. It is delicate and feminine and the ivory color matches skin tones way better than a simple white. 

I paired it with a pair of raw hem jeans (I cut by myself) to dress it down a little. Some pops of red (lips, heels, bag chain) and I was good to go. Maybe I should have chosen a red bag too but I think this one is perfect for summer. The color, the shape and all the details !!!! 

I had worn this outfit to a birthday dinner but you could easily wear it to a date nigh or even for running errands (paired with flats of course). And this would also make a great outfit for 4th of July festivities today. 

What are your plans today ? I would love to hear.
Since we don´t have any festivites in Germany I make a flag cake, lit my Stars & Stripes candle from Yankee Candle and dresses up for today.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.
