I am so happy the weekend is here and we don´t have any plans to go out on the evenings so it´s going to be two great days of staying in (cooking together) and enjoying our garden plus Chloe is with us and we enjoy that very much all the time. It is going to be super hot on the weekend again so for that I tried out an adult popsicle recipe for you and I think it is a hit. Not to sweet with lots of fresh fruit. If you want to step up your Frosé game this is it.
I love strawberry season cause I really enjoy baking or making things out and with strawberries. In need of cute little strawberry mini cakes (view the recipe here) for a Sunday brunch or an addition to a gift like homemade strawberry jam for any other strawberry lover. Or what about a delicious and juicy cheesecake for the recipe topped with fresh strawberries? The opportunities are endless for strawberry dishes. So since the last recipes mostly were baked I am sharing a easy non-baking and cold one today.
Strawberry Frosé Popsicles
I have to admit I don´t have any meassurings cause this has been a first for me and I didn´t think it turn out eatable. But that only proves how easy it is and that you can do it as wel..
– fresh strawberries
– cup of your favorite rosé
– agave nectar
I washed the strawberries and cut of the stems and put them into the blender to the rosé afterwards. Then I added some agave nectar (you can add sugar as well or as many nectar as you would like). Blended it for about 2 minutes. I added some rosé afterwards to have enough liquid for all the mouldings.

isn´t a animal print pleated midi skirt the most marvellous thing you have ever spotted around here? I definitely think it ranks in the top ten of awesome pieces to wear. I got this cutie in the mail laast week (it was a steal – under 20 Euro from New Look) and wanted to wear it on a date night but ended up wearing it to a dinner date with another couple. The skirt is super comfortable and the animal patterns are just gorgeous combining so many different and trendy prints in one piece. Since the pleats are a little smaller and sturdier the skirt keeps its straight shape and looks super chic. I would be perfect to wear to the office to with a pair of sling back heels and a blouse or shirt and blazer combo. The only downside is that it feels a little thin but because of the dark prints it isn´t seethrough at all.
I have gone with all black and white accessories here but pairing animal print with other bold colors would be a great choice. Color like red and orange or even a bright yellow pair very well with the different brown hues. So if you want to stay on the save side go use the warmer tones and if you really want to go all in maybe a stunning bold green shade?!
The bag I am carrying is from Katie Loxton. I have discovered this UK handbag and accessories brand in Feburary and got the bamboo handle bag (style called Avery Bamboo bag) first from their collection. We went back to the shop last week to see what´s new and I found the Suki Tote bag in white. I have been searching for the perfect white bag for a long time now and this is it. Also the golden ring handles are to cute and trendy and the bags are super affordable. I even picked up a little something for my SIL´s birthday next week.
How do you feel about animal print in general? Do you like it mixed or do you prefer one special print?

first post of the week today. I skipped yesterday cause as it was a holiday we had been out and about the whole day. We visited the botanical garden in Augsburg (sharing more about it later this week) and had coffee after. I have been feeling a lot under the weather lately. Too much humidity and rain. I hope we are going back to just hot days as I can handle these a lot better.
So let´s skip to the look. Off-the-shoulder looks are still a pretty hot Summer trend. I personally love the off-shoulder trend the moment it came out again a few year ago and have not stopped wearing it since. Wether it is a dress or a shirt or a blouse or a pullover I go for it and you should too. It is super flattering and immediately adds a summery touch to your look. Put your head up into a bun and you suddenly have that Spanish flair of a salsa dancer. Perfect to go out with too.
I paired my colorful flower print off-shoulder shirt with a pair of white boyfriend jeans and a white straw tote. Since it was an all white look I set some focus with different pops of red like the shoes, the earrings and the sunglasses (a great dupe for a high fashion designer-got them from amazon for under 5 Euro). You also could have picked up the blue or the green of the shirt and pieces in this color.
Do you still love the off-shoulder trend or have you moved on? Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
