We are in the middle of Summer although it hasn´t become real summery over here. The weather is quite mixed up which means in this case it is hot for three days and rainy for three days. So in regards of outfit planning it has become really hard. But as you know me I am not a huge fan of the Summer heat and Summer activities I don´t mind to much.
What I do like about Summer are the fun prints and vibrant colors we get to wear. The maxi dress for example has this gorgeous royal blue hue I love so much.
Another thing I love about the dress is the length. A maxi dress has always been one of mý favorites as it is super uncomplicated to wear. Just throw it on and you are ready to go out. In the worst case you wouldn´t even have to shave your legs.
For this look I added a white jean jacket and a pair of silver sandals but you could have easily gone with a brighter color like red too.
For tomorrow I have planned a huge post including all things breastfeeding, pumping and more.
Real life styles have been pretty rare over here the last couple of weeks as most of the days I am not gettting dressed although I have tons of Summer stuff but we are mostly in our garden so why make a fuss about it. But I swear I am getting better again. In time periods where I have a little sag I usually watch The Devil wears Prada or some episodes of Dynasty and that really gets my creative juices flowing in terms of styles and wanting to get dressed up again.
Shirt dresses have never been more popular than nowadays no matter if they are denim, all white or with a cute pattern or vibrant color.
A shirt dress is super easy to wear, just throw it on and you are good to go plus it is breastfeeding friendly which is a huge dealbraker over here. That doesn´t mean that I am not wearing other clothes but to easy access has never hurt.
As you know me and my love for prints and colors this dress was an absolute must for me. The vibrant orange color and the cute 70´s inspired print make a great dress. Perfectly for Sunday dinners, church visits, birthday parties or the office. No matter the ocassion, a shirt dress is your companion.
I am so happy it is Friday tomorrow. I have some things planned for the weekend and as the weather is supposed to be better than last week I think we can finally visit a few of the restaurants where I wanted to eat for some time now.
June has been a great months of new beauty finds for me. I got a bunch of awesome things that I wanted to share with you. Some beauty and some make-up products and of course a lipstick. Isn´t there always a lipstick in my reviews?!
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream // Ordered it cause I wanted to join the hype and it definitely is the best smelling body cream I have ever had. You can totally feel the Summer after applying it plus the smell last the whole day. It really is pricey but a little goes a long way and it leaves you with an amazing scent on your smooth skin.
Sol de Janeiro Acai Cream // Got the travel size from the Acai smell cause the other scent was magnificent. It is good but not as good as the Bum Bum Cream. Not going to purchase this one again.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in color Rosewood Supreme // Never had a YSL lipstick before and since they had been on sale I finally got one. The color is one of my favorite pink shades. The color goes on super easily, is highly pigmented and the texture is so smooth. It definitely is pricey so I would wait for a sale.
Smooth Sexy Hair Shine Hairspray // I had the Revlon shine spray before and was on the lookout for another shine spray so I tried the travel size of this one. It is really good so I am definitely going to get the big version.
Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Volume Texture Spray // I have been on the hunt for a texture spray that does something for my hair for a long time now and this one is not bad. I can see small changes in terms of volume but just not enough. I am sure there can be more so I am going to report back when I find a better one.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation // Awesome foundation I can only recommend. It has full coverage and blurs out all imperfections. It is buildable and available in a ton of different shades. The Double Wear foundation is the closest to the MAC Studio Fix foundation I have used everyday. The only thing I don´t like is that it has no pump dispenser so it get´s messy really fast.
Kiehl´s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Cream // My new face cream for Summer time. I was searching for a cream with a high SPF and this one has a 50 so it doesn´t get higher. The cream itself is pretty light and not sticky at all and works fine for underneath my make-up. I absolutely love it. Hated each and every lotion with SPF before but this one is awesome.
