my last week of Summer fashion posts started already and I have to admit I am not mad at all and counting down the days until September and I can officially start to post Fall fashion inspo. I have so much on my mind I want to share with you plus I am giddy to light my first Fall candle for this year.
But let´s talk about my recent outfits first. I have scrolled through all of my Summer looks and I think I have never worn this much blue in a year than this year. I wouldn´t even count blue to my super favorite colors but I guess it subconsciously is.
Maxi dresses have always been a favorite for me. There is just something so elegant and whimsical about them that I tend to wear them a lot more than anything else. Plus they are also a good option on days you are too tired to shave your legs.
Anyways I wanted to know if you are as excited for Fall as I am or if you are still clinging to Summer?

Happy Saturday you guys,
are you still with me in the challenge ? My closet game is still going strong although I have broken the rule once this week and ordered a white dress. I am still looking for a great and not seethrough white dress and ordered one from Asos I thought that would fit the bill but it is as worse as any other I tried already. So this is definitely going back.
Other than that I think I have done really great so far. I am styling Fall looks to shot already and researched some fall trends to try out when I am allowed to order again.
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? My husband is going to be home for the next two weeks so we are making some changes in my closet, going to get breakfast and overall enjoy our time together as a family.
the week is halfway through and so far it has been the most laid back in a long time. No appointments, no places to be. We spent a ton of our time outside in the garden as it has been super warm and windy so it was awesome to be outside.
Splashing around in the water and sitting under the fruit trees is so idyllic I don´t need to be anywhere on vacation cause it feels great.
Plus wearing all the flower dresses right now is giving me major Summer vibes. I have always loved flower prints no matter the flowers or the size. The dress I am wearing above is another great amazon find I also own in two other prints as the style of the dress is amazing. Super flowy and long sleeved (which I love cause I am not a huge fan of my arms) with an interesting neckline, a great lenght and available in 20 plus different colors and prints.
I am probably going to order more in darker colors as soon as Fall comes around. Prime shipping is available and they are under 40 Euro which is a great value.
Preparing some shoots tomorrow so I can get fresh content over the weekend. Going to add a bunch of new posts in the home decor category as well as the food category soon. So stay tuned for this if you are interested.
With all the quarantine restrictions due to Covid 19 we have been facing for the last few months on a daily basis lots of people have gotten super creative in terms of renovating their homes or exploring their inner Martha Stewart and have been cooking and baking ever since. I for myself had a baby which was also time consuming so my first DIY project took me awhile.
But today I am finally sharing my DIY tie-dye shirt on my little corner on the internet. After looking at so many shirts I could never find a piece I loved and if I did it mostly was sold out or super expensive so after watching a ton of YouTube video I decided to make my own – Mommy and Me version.
How to Tie-Dye your own shirts?
So I ordered a tie-dye kit off of amazon and thought by myself how hard could it be, I mean thousands of people already done it. I was quite confident to start on the pieces (I got a pair of longsleeves and t-shirts from H&M as they also carry baby clothing) but felt a little overwhelmed after mixing the paint but I went on how I wanted to die our clothes and to be honest I think they turned out great for a first time.
The method I used for our shirts is called the crinkle method and probably the easiest of all. You just crinkle your shirts together and fixate them with a rubber band (much easier with the baby bodies as they didn´t take up to much space but my shirts, even crinkled, where quite large so I managed to color, flip and put them into a ziplock bag without). Also I soaked the shirts with a vinegar water solution for about an hour upfront cause it said that the color is supposed to hold and look better after.
After letting the color set for about 4-6 hours you can rinse each shirt with cold water and wash afterwards. The color with get a little lighter but still looks beautiful. Let it air dry and you are good to go.
– blue is the most pigmented color so I would recommend to wear gloves even to rinse it off as otherwise your hands will stay blue for some time
– plastic foil also works to keep it damp but a ziplock bag is the best
It was so much fun and I probably make another bunch with more difficult patterns cause I have so much color left. Some baby socks or/and a neckerchief for our dog would be great.
As of now I am pretty impressed with how easy it has been and I for myself think I got great results.
