Summery Birthday Partylook

1-IMG_4907

July is the month of birthdays here in this household. It is wonderful to celebrate so many wonderful people, but it's a little difficult to find several cute outfits that work well for all occasions. I had these cute pieces in my closet and had never thought of a combination before, but they worked really well together and made for a bit more formal, but summery birthday party outfit. It's been a long time since I last wore that skirt and it had almost landed in the donation pile. I have always had my issues with white skirts - easily getting them dirty, with a bit of a wedding look and so on. But, I see now that it is quite versatile and will stay for a while longer in my closet.

Travel Diary - Paris 2016

1-IMG_3469

June 2016 was definitely my travel month. I finally got to visit Paris and Disneyland. A trip like this has been on my wish list for ages and I loved every second of it. It's going to be a picture overload, hope you enjoy it.

Pictures with the Eiffel Tower - definite must for every visitor. I tried a little twirl at Trocadero.

We went up on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower - what a view! Pre-booked tickets for a fast line are definitely worth the money!

First floor with the glass floor and a hot spot for kissing!

Paris is full of nostalgic Caroussels, but this one close to Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower was my favourite.

Boat tour on the river Seine is one essential point on the To Do list - my personal favourite is the small Statue of Liberty.

Also visited the Tuilleries and the Louvre at a really sunny day. Wonderful place for a walk during mid-day, a little bit of nature in the middle of Paris city centre.  Lots of Parisians take this opportunity for a short run or lunch with friends during their break at work.

Montmatre and the Sacre Coeur are worth the hype and the view over Paris from the steps is breathtaking. Sadly, the Eiffel Tower is pretty difficult to be found. Mr.B had to do some serious monkey climbing to get that last photo!  We wanted to se the nightly light show from up here, but it started pouring down and we decided to go back to the hotel after a quick dinner.

Ready for vacation

1-IMG_4392-001

It's finally here, our Summer vacation! School is out for the next weeks (I know, we are always so late on this) and we are going up north on Tuesday, visiting our favourite place - Finland! Right on time for our break, Summer and the heat came back and we have been enjoying hot days here in Germany. I have been wearing my dresses every day, giving them all a spin and this number here that I actually thrifted two years back has been a favourite. Turquoise is just so nice for the summer months and it is no secret that it is also my favourite color!

Those shoes are so comfortable - perfect for a day at work and these earrings are such a great find that I have found in a little vintage shop in Paris (thx again to LaVieAnnRose for all the great tips in her book!).

Let's take a twirl

1-IMG_0640

Oh my, I totally forgot about this outfit, but actually it is beautiful! I am currently loving this nude skirt in all kinds of combinations and have a post coming to the blog soon that is featuring it in Paris. Here, I paired it with a dotted blouse that might work a little better with a fitted pencil skirt, but I do adore the photos and wanted to post the look no matter what. It's an everyday outfit that I wore to work that day and have had on repeat several times since.

Summer Sunday

1-IMG_0866

Every summer, I have the need for a comfortable weekend uniform that needs to be practical and heat proof. As I went on a work trip to Spain a couple of weeks ago, I needed that comfortable attire even earlier for some free time activities during the trip. This look has proven to be perfect for several occasions and I feel really comfortable in it.
