Outfit: Rage the night away.

Velvet devore kimono: eBay || Mandala crop top: Urban Outfitters (old) || Distressed / destroyed skinny jeans: H&M || Norah Boots: Vagabond || Belt: Miss Selfridge || Tribal Necklace: DIXI  

To be honest I'm one of those girls who avoid wearing jeans, I usually prefer leggings, denim cut offs, tights or skirts. But when I wear jeans they have to be super tight fitting AND destroyed, I love ripped jeans way too much! I've been pretty into the knee rip trend and when I saw them at H&M I was sooo disappointed they didn't have my size - fortunately I was lucky enough to get my hands on the right fitting pair online. Because it's getting colder and colder I'm really glad I bought them! They're highwaisted, so you can easily wear them together with your favorite crop tops from summer. The whole outfit is kept dark-greenish, it's the time for velvet kimonos again! I've already owned this kimono and the mandala top for around 2 years and I still love them! They match perfectly. I once got questioned how I wear kimonos when I'm not combining them with denim shorts - here is one version! I think they also go perfectly with skinny jeans, dresses or maxi skirts aswell. In addition to that they become an fall essential. Btw: Just wear a tight fitting basic cardigan in black underneath the kimono, it will keep you warm!

Outfit: Breathe your smoke into my lungs.

Plaid flannel: Gina Tricot || Floral daisy jada dress: Brandy Melville || Strappy bra: Topshop || Necklaces: Dixi & Vanessa Mooney || Boots: Vagabond via Urban Outfitters .

This is probably the most comfortable look I've ever posted, ever. Actually it's a very simple one, but still has some details and eye-catchers in it (you know, it wouldn't be me if there weren't any fancy stuff included. :-D). I really love Brandy Melville's backless Jada dresses, I own three of them and they're my favorite summer dresses for the very hot days, because they're super comfortable (almost like a top), light weighted/flowy and very beachy in a way. But that doesn't mean you can't wear your favorite summer dresses in fall, too! I can't get enough of the combo of plaid shirts + floral dresses, I already wore it one year ago and I think it'll always look great. But: the colors should match, here the dark navy (almost blackish) color of the dress goes perfectly with the shirt's checks. Somehow that combo always looks like you directly borrowed a shirt from your boyfriend, because the light dress you're in is getting too cold haha. ;-D Here you can also see how accessories posh an outfit up like my new favorite strappy bra (It took such a long time to find the perfect strappy bra, I can tell you!), my necklaces or rings. I believe you can never have enough jewelry, you can easily add some edge to everything you wear.

Outfit: The less you care, the happier you will be.

"Moselle" cardigan: Brandy Melville || Tee: Truly Madly Deeply via Urban Outfitters || Shorts: Romwe || Overknee socks: H&M || Boots: Dr. Martens

I'm really happy about it that the cardigan found his way to my wardrobe, I bought it at Brandy Melville when I was in Munich in August (It's already been such a long time, I miss this city so much!) and I'm pretty sure I've already worn it more than 15 times since I got it. At first I saw it in a picture spreaded all over Tumblr, I'm so happy I got my hands on it, because it's quite rare. In the pictures you can't see the hood on the back, it's really comfy and cute looking! I also love its longer length and hollowed design which makes it more suitable for warm fall days. Fall also means wearing some over knee socks again, I really love them together with that cardigan, some denim shorts and a printed crop top. Some of you already asked me on instagram where it is from - I bought it almost one year ago on when it was on sale for 75% off. But keep checking their tees & tanks section, they always get some similar designs in, it's definitely worth it! :-)

Wish you all an awesome weekend! xx

Inspiration/Shopping ideas: Witchy vibes.

(Source: Tumblr)

Yes, it's that time of the year again: October. It's not only the month when halloween is happening, it's also probably the most autumn-like month in the year. The leaves are falling, the weather is grey, cold and the mornings foggy and the nights are getting longer. Every year at this time I always enjoy wearing velvet fabrics, black outfits and dressing all witchy. American Horror Stories "coven" series start on the local german TV and probably that's the reason for my blog post in a way - I simply love wearing goth + boho inspired outfits in fall. Here are some shopping ideas and photos - hope you enjoy them and get inspired as much as I do! xx

Key Pieces + Shopping ideas:
  • velvet fabrics in dark colors like burgundy, black, navy or dark green
  • wide brim wool hats in black
  • white collared dresses - add some Addams Family and Coven vibe to your look!
  • long dark duster coats
  • dark velvet devore kimonos 
  • lace dresses, tops or skirts
  • light weighted maxi skirts/dresses or skater skirts in black
  • Choker necklaces for some goth and 90s vibes
(Longline duster jacket: Topshop ; Fringed devore kimono and lace kimono: River Island ; Burgundy velvet dress: OASAP)

Outfit: Feed the fire, break your vision.

"Gypsy Queen" embroidered leather jacket: Spell Designs || Velvet devore top: Urban Outfitters || Denim shorts: Romwe || Necklace: Vanessa Mooney via Free People

I had been waiting for this jacket to be available for more than 3 months, it really felt like Christmas when I finally held my package in my hands and opened it 4 weeks ago. It's probably the most expensive clothing piece I own tbh, but I know I will wear it and have it for a lifetime. It's a one-of-a-kind jacket, because it is embroidered with vintage banjara fabrics and each fabrics differ in color and design. I ordered it from Spell and I was the lucky girl who was able to pick one of 10 selected jackets first. As soon as I saw this beauty I knew this is the jacket I want - I love the colorful, but not too bright fabric with mirrors in it! It's just perfect for fall/winter/spring and it's probably the most unique biker leather jacket I've ever seen. Even in winter it's perfect for layering with some flannels or cardigans. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to wear it that often during the last weeks, because the weather's been still too warm. But this combo is simply perfect for summer nights or warm fall days when the mornings are still cold.  It's pretty much a mixture of summer (bottom) and fall (top) - I combined the jacket with an burgundy devore velvet top I got at Urban Outfitters around one year ago when it was on sale for only 12€. I really like it, because it isn't that striking, more basic like, but still edgy looking, so the top or the shorts won't distract you from the jacket which is kinda like a piece of art itself. 
You will definitely see a lot more looks with that jacket - can't wait for layering and rock it with band/biker tees! 

Love xx

Outfit: Southern love.

Southwestern inspired cardigan: Forever 21 || Metallica tee: Urban Outfitters (men section) || Crossed tied leggings: OASAP || Boots: Gamloong via Humanic || Coin necklace: Urban Outfitters || Hat: Forever 21

The best thing to wear in autumn? A cozy and comfy cardigan. Perfect for the cold mornings and still wearable when it warms up during afternoon. I love those amazing cape/poncho western styles from the runway and you can already see ponchos and capes with aztec/navajo prints in every store. To me it's totally annoying to wear and you always feel like being caught under a blanket or something - so I was even more happy when I grabbed this bargain and poncho inspired cardigan at Forever 21 the other day - it's SO cozy and I love that print. You can easily bring some boho vibes to your outfit and wear it with printed tees, leggings or even shorts and tights. It's also the perfect layering piece under leather jackets in winter. I wore it here with one of my favorite band tees - it's one from Metallica. Furthermore I wear my leggings I've already been wearing in autumn/winter/spring since 2 years, they fit to everything! The look is a mixture of bohemian, Rock 'n' Roll and some western chic - I hadn't worn that hat for quite a long time, because in summer it was usually too hot for it - can't wait for wearing hats with my long duster coat in winter!
