We love Denim

It’s a beautiful and sunny Sunday – at least on the East Coast 😉 – and so we have a little special blog post for you. A few days ago I went to a designer outlet in Connecticut with my lovely friend Louisa and as soon as we arrived there we lost track of
time as you probably can imagine. Although it is a rather small outlet it was still like paradise for us, seeing Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and many more brands on sale. This is where I found this beautiful blue dress with long sleeves, which looks like denim. In addition I found the Tommy Hilfiger sandals you can see on the picture and I thought: Why not having a whole outfit in blue? 🙂 To complete the blue outfit I picked up my Prada handbag with the denim fabric. I feel so comfortable wearing this outfit because it looks great but is still casual for an everyday use.

I hope you guys like it as much as I do 🙂

Hair Accessories: Flowers as Summer Essentials

Flower Hair Accessories URBAN OUTFITTERS PACSUN

First of all I wanted to thank you very much for your lovely comments on our last topic: The Leather Leggings. Since some of you really liked the hair accessory, I wanted to make a separate blog post about flower accessories. Those accessories are not only
representing the Hippie Style, they are just great to wear in summer. When I was wearing one of them to a class at university a couple weeks ago so many people came to me and said that this accessory really looked fantastic. Of course you don’t have to use a flower hairband, also other ones work very well and look beautiful. Thinking about the Coachella Festival that style would fit perfectly. And I have to admit I’ve always loved the Hippie Style! Even when I was a young girl I took a string or something similar and used it as a hair accessory (and who didn’t want to be Pocahontas at some point at that age? :D). So enjoy living your Hippie Style, you can combine to the flowers some denim shorts and a fringed top or shirt. Another option would be a wonderful maxi dress which looks awesome with your flower hair accessories. I am wearing a creme romantic short dress which fits nicely to the color of the flowers. To me this is a total summer essential, so have fun in picking the right one for you 🙂

Favorite Leather Leggings

I was wearing my favorite leggings today and had the desire to write a post to tell you about them. These are special leggings because they are leather with a brown army style pattern on it. I combine them very often with
camel or creme colored T-Shirts but also white ones, it depends on my mood.

FIRST OUTFIT

The style shows the pants with a plain white T-Shirt. Since the T-Shirt is so plain I wanted to add something special, so I chose a flower hairband which gives the outfit a slightly Hippie look but I love it.

SECOND OUTFIT
For the second style I am showing you this cute creme colored T-Shirt with a big wink smiley on it and golden sandals with feathers – I have to admit that those are my favorite sandals because they have a small heel and I feel great and elegant in them. By choosing a purse I’m taking a color which is absolutely not in my clothes just to add a pop of colour. This is why I chose the velvet purse with stripes by Longchamp. Just take a purse for your outfit that is totally different from the colors you chose and you are ready to go outside.

ACCESSORIES

I also added some accessories since it still can get cold in the evening and when you go out for dinner and would like to sit outside. So I added some essentials to this outfit: My favorite leather jacket in brown, Burberry camel scarf with and a golden nail polish that fits to the golden sandals. In summer I actually prefer to use body mist than perfume because it always smells a lot fresher.

Hawai’i Adventure Part Two – Big Island

Here comes our second post about our awesome time on the beautiful islands of Hawai’i. This time I would like to tell you a little about the time we spent in Big Island. Melly and I were at the same time in Big Island but we had
two different locations to stay at. But we both booked our apartments through Airbnb. There is always a chance to have bad luck with a location (I had this in Maui and will tell you more about it in the next Hawai’i Blog post ;-)) but these accommodations were just great. Everything was clean and looked nicely. For you, who don’t know what Airbnb is: people can offer them on this website if they have a free room or an apartment to give them to people, so it is actually kind of a private hotel. You just have to take care about your meals and that’s it! If you do enough research and read the recommendations it is very possible to get a nice, clean and good location to stay.

In Big Island the weather is also different from the other islands. So you should think about this fact before packing your suitcase. Although during the day it can be warm, it was very cloudy the days we we have been there and when it gets dark, it gets really cold. Also, Big Island has some of the wettest spots on earth – so a rain jacket could be very helpful 😉 So next to your shorts, also bring some sweaters and long pants with you. We even saw snow on top of Mauna Kea which is one of the most awesome places on the island, you definitely should check it out because it’s one of the greatest places to see stars in the entire world. So as you can see warm clothes are also essential here. On this island, there is the Volcanoes National Park which is huge and you can actually spend a whole day there. It is great to see the volcano – the Kīlauea- but also go there when it is dark, then you can see the glow of it. If you are going to Big Island in January and February for example you have a chance to see the actual lava because the volcano is still very active. I’m really sad I couldn’t see that, we only went there in our Spring Break which was in end of March but I’ve heard it is supposed to be very impressive. So if you get the chance go there in the first months of the year 🙂
Very close, there is also a black sand beach which you can se in one of the pictures. Big Island is, as its name says, the biggest of the Hawaiian islands and it takes a little longer to drive to places. But if you are willing to take a more adventurous ride, go to the Southern most point of America, the Ka Lae Point and watch a beautiful sunset there. The next land that comes after the Pacific Ocean you see will be Antarctica, can you imagine that?
It is definitely worth it! So now I talked enough and will show you some pictures about this awesome trip. The next Hawaii Adventure will be Maui and I can’t wait to tell you about this trip! So stay tuned 🙂
And Melly will also post some pictures about her experience in Big Island soon! These are only my impressions and I hope you will enjoy them and I am very looking forward to your comments!

Love,
Juli

Two Spring Outfit Recommendations

Spring finally arrived and one sunny day is chasing the other (besides today of course when it just won’t stop raining). This weekend I was lucky enough to visit one of my best friends who I haven’t seen in a long time. The weekend was lovely and full of fun. It was brought to perfection by

the good weather on Monday which we took advantage of to go for a walk in a nearby park. The surroundings were beautiful and since spring arrived the trees were full of blossoms which smelled amazing.

In the following I would like to introduce two outfit options to you which are both – comfortable and classy :o) The most important thing certainly is to bring some comfy shoes for a long walk why I chose some black Vans for the first outfit. Also a useful thing is to bring a Cardigan so you’re able to take it off if the sun is as beautiful as it was on that day. The white blouse from H&M is a perfect lightweight fabric and go perfectly with the black structured leggings which are also from H&M. Of course it’s a perfect opportunity to bring your favorite bag as well.
Cardigan: Vero Moda
Blouse: H&M
Leggings: H&M
Shoes: Vans
Sunglasses: Prada
Bag: Michael Kors

The Second Outfit 
My lovely friend Teresa combined a black shirt with brown-beigy pants, a Picard-bag and also rocked the Prada sunglasses which we both grew to absolutely love. Also, can I just say that her hair looks amazing? 😀 (nope, not jealous at all ). 
Black Shirt: H&M
Pants: from an Italien Market
