Outfit: Wild for the night.

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

Outfit: Reprobate Romance.

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!

Outfit: Easy Rider.

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.

Outfit: Counting stars.

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.

Weekly Update #4

New in…
I bought some new jewelry - I'm so in love. Here you can see my hand piece I don't want to take off anymore and another bracelet. I'm planning a post about my jewelry collection btw, I also want to share some ideas with you where to find awesome vintage treasures!

(hand piece available on eBay)
by the new lookbook of Lip Service - dark, magical and a mixture of boho / goth. This makes me even looking forward to autumn and it's dark days. Awesome!

Actually my parents constantly watch the Football World Cup, to me it's quite boring. I've never been into that kind of sports, I preferred watching my Pretty Little Liars DVDs instead haha. :-) I love these tv series so much, it's perfect made and so exciting! And c'mon Hanna and Caleb are sooo cute together!!
BUT: The german match (I have to admit that I watch ALL german matches, because it's my home country, you know) was exciting as hell! I mean, 7 goals?? Brazil only got 1 goal? That's unbelievably amazing. Of course I'm going to watch the final tonight, Germany for the win!! . :-)

I love listening to the new Remixes of "Recess" by Skrillex and I found an awesome track called "You're A Woman, I'm A Machine" by Death From Above 1979. It's punk rock and a really cool track. It's worth checking it out :-)

I've wanted that dress for ages, it's sold out in my size though. I really would love to have it, hopefully it will be restocked in the future, arrrgh

Outfit: Never Surrender.

• Def Leppard tee: Urban Outfitters
• Lacework cut-off denim shorts: 6ks 
• Breastplate festival necklace: Shop Sparrow via Hellaholics
• Tribal necklace: Urban Outfitters 
• Midi rings: Infinitine 
• "Dioon" Boots: Vagabond 

I took the pictures of this look when it was super hot, now I really miss the weather - it's raining all time time and it's cold right now - where's summer??? I love wearing tank tops with huge arm holes in summer, they're perfectly fluttering and it looks cool when you can get a sneak peek at the side of your bra or bikini. Of course it's a band shirt from a band I really like - band tees add an rock edge to every look. Here you can also see my new denim shorts with a cute lace detail on each side from 6ks, the quality is amazing even though they aren't pricy at all. The delivery was also quite fast and safe from China, they have so many cute stuff on their website! I also ordered a summer dress from them I'm going to show you in the next post. And YES I finally found a breastplate necklace!! I had wanted one for ages, I found the perfect one by Shop Sparrow - it looks awesome together with printed biker shirts or band tees - it's also great for layering!
