I'm totally feeling like a 70s flower happy hippie child while wearing that gorgeous dress by Free People - it's not only perfectly comfortable, its print is also beautiful and edgy. I really like its design which reminds me of a butterfly in a way. On top of that those ruffles and pink color make it look pretty cute. I got it on ASOS.com some months ago when I had a 20% off voucher code and I was searching for a hippie-like throw for summer. (btw it is really perfect for summer nights when you're just sitting in the garden or in the meadow and watching the sunset… I really enjoy those magical moments in summer). I think there's no brand or online shop existing who got that cool boho-hippie vibe inspired tunics/dresses as Free People does. I wish I could have all products of their website in my wardrobe to be honest haha.

New in …
Hippie chic dress: Mango || Floral blouse w/ crochet sleeves: Romwe (also available at NastyGal) || Iron Maiden tee: H&M || Distressed shorts: Romwe
A lot of new stuff came new in during the last two weeks. I'm so happy I managed to get my hands on the boho printed dress from Mango I showed you for my "wishlist" in my last weekly update. A real bargain btw - 50% off! Can't wait to show you how I combine the 4 pieces!
That quote totally got me. It contains probably one of the most important messages and ideas in life. We all have our ups and downs, we all know difficult situations we had or still have to handle and suffer from being hurt by someone. Nothing is perfect in life and sometimes hard times seem to last forever. But you can't spend years and years crying over something you can't change and stop enjoying life. Every day is precious, we only have one life to live & we should enjoy every day at the fullest. Being happy is a state of mind and even though when you feel all alone, losing everyone you love or you aren't satisfied with your every day life - make the best out of it and improve it. Never stop dreaming, never stop believing and achieve what you'd wish the most.
Listened…I completely fell in love with that song. No words for it, simply listen to it!
"Jaguar" by What So Not:
I've been looking forward to Saturday when I spend the day with a friend of mine in Munich. I haven't seen that beautiful city since February and to be honest I have seen nothing else than my hometown for the last 5 months which can be pretty boring and annoying. I love traveling and I love to visit different places, being stuck at only one single place is quite terrible for me. It feels good to forget the everyday life and just go shopping and having fun with friends in a different city. Can't wait to shop at Forever 21 or Brandy & Melville again, I love those shops way too much. I will definitely show you the pictures of the day with my friend Ally in an post coming next week! :-)

Boho print kimono: OASAP || "California Wild Nights" top: Forever 21 || Shorts: Pimkie || Platform boots: Dioon by Vagabond || Necklace: Forever 21
My never ending love for kimonos is pretty obvious, right? This one has a beautiful indian paisley pattern I adore. Its colors are also perfect for summer and somehow it reminds me of the style of Ivy from 90210 who's my favorite tv series character ever btw. Furthermore I wanted to stay casual and comfortable on that day, so I decided to wear my favorite summer combo (you all know from previous posts): Kimono + print top + denim cutoffs + loads of jewelry. I always love matching prints of kimono and shirt just like I did here. You always get the best results when considering that both prints have the same colors and the theme is consistent. The shirt is so cool and it was a real bargain. It expresses my love for California and I like that western inspired font.
To be honest I wear my Vagabond booties more than 4 times a week, they are the most comfortable boots EVER. These are so easy to walk in, you won't get tired feet and they are less sweaty than my beloved biker boots or western booties I usually wear in summer haha.
I'm also experimenting with my new curling wall and sea salt texturizing spray the last couple of days, somehow I currently prefer my hair wavy and it also reminds me of my vacations I spent on the seaside (way too long ago, around 3 or 4 years…). Looks like I'm going to store my straightener away and only go for my new love, the curling wall, and sea salt spray. Beach waves, mermaid hair or whatever, here we gooo! x

Lace maxi dress: OASAP || Fringed leather jacket: H&M (old) || Necklace, Navajo handpiece: Vintage || Concho belt: eBay
That dress is made of dreams, right? When I saw it on OASAP it was love at first sight, I guess (and the dress isn't expensive at all even though the quality is great!!). I don't own many maxi dresses, but this one is my favorite. Even though it is full-length, it has an asymmetric design, so you can still peek the legs. The creamy color of the lace is also perfect! The material is very sheer, so I always wear a black bandeau underneath. That dress reminds me a little bit of those dresses which were worn by rich ladies in western movies, you know haha. The whole outfit is also very western inspired, I combined the dress with my beloved fringed leather jacket (I got it 2 years ago and it was secondhand, I guess it was originally from H&M's 2010/11 collections..), my gorgeous navajo hand piece I got from my mother and as usual - my huge concho belt. In order to add some edge and grunge vibe to the look I picked my chunky platform heels which always look great together with maxi dresses!

The print of the shirt and the kimono meant to be worn together - the colors match so well! The shirt is made of dreams, it's the softest shirt I've ever owned and it feels so good on your skin even when the weather is super hot. I think it's also the most perfect biker shirt ever, it expresses all my wanderlust, my dream to hit the road immediately and my love for the nature in the US. Somehow it reminds me of the road near Palm Springs, next to Coachella Valley. The fact that the print doesn't start at the beginning of the neckline is also beneficial when you're a statement necklace junkie as I am - the print won't be hidden. ;-D
Btw: if you search for comfortable shorts especially for hot summer days: Wearing crochet shorts is the best choice, trust me. Even if I have many denim shorts in my wardrobe, I prefer my lace shorts instead when it's hot, because they are definitely more comfortable and flattering. I own a white pair and a black pair, but here I went for the white ones, because I didn't want the outfit to be too dark.

Lace dress: 6ks || Indian print scarf: Market || Breastplate necklace: Shop Sparrow via Hellaholics || Concho belt: Market || Boots: Zara
Summer's here again woohoo! I got this beautiful crochet dress from 6ks and it's perfect for colder summer mornings, because you actually have to wear a slip dress underneath - it's verrry sheer. The whole combo is brown, turquoise and white what I love. In my opinion scarves can add edge to every look, especially these light and soft ones are perfect for summer and can replace a vest. I got this beautiful scarf from the local market where they have loads of different indian printed silk scarves, this one immediately caught my eye because of it's beautiful brown/goldish and purple patterns. Furthermore there are elephants on it (soooo cute). The whole look is also very festival and boho inspired like 99% of my summer outfits, I guess haha.
The last days were actually quite unexciting, I'm dreaming of packing my stuff and traveling to new places. I'm dreaming of seeing the ocean again, long beach walks at night and exploring the world's beauty. Hopefully soon.
