head to toe: H&M

this has been my uniform for the week. maxi dresses plus biker jackets.
no brainers but super comfy for miguel´s playdates!
i love watching miguel play.
it just makes me realize how fast time flies and how fast he grows.
if only i can press pause and enjoy the time with him as a baby forever.
i know not everyone of you can relate but being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
no shoes, no clothes or bags can ever compensate.

just wanted to say thank you to all those who emailed and commented on the last post!
i didn´t expect so much positive words. it makes me overwhelmed, and as cheesy as this sounds, you, my readers, make it easier for me to fight and live here in a foreign country that is slowly becoming my second home.
just wanted to clear that i am now in my fourth year in my job and those shoes were my first designer buy. now, my collection is growing and couldn´t be happier! i might do a post about it soon!

bow blouse. cardigan & headband: H&M * shorts: Zara * bow sandals: Marc Jacobs * bracelets: H&M, Asos & vintage

say hi to my first designer shoes ever! ;)
i must have worn these three times max. as i am scared that they get ruined or something.
these babies have a special place in my heart.
i bought them with my first pay.
and working in a german firm when you don´t speak german is a pretty hard challenge, i tell you.
so i see this as a trophy for surviving a life alone here in germany.
yes, shoes mean to me more than being just footwear.
surprise.

jacket: H&M The Garden Collection * shoes: Sonia Rykiel pour H&M * rest: H&M

this place must be my favorite spot to take pictures!
it´s the boy´s old school and this is the cafeteria.
i just have to say that you guys (first world guys) are so lucky to be where you are.
i remember bringing a potato sack to school because all the classrooms were full and we had to sit under a big old tree to continue with the lessons. no potato sack = dirty school uniform.
you know what i mean?
but it was fun and we always have a laugh about it now that we are older.

nuff about my sad past, i finally got this jacket in my size!
believe me it was not easy.

then we go to a mall in the next bigger town the next day, and there were the jackets.
hanging in all sizes. in it´s red puffy glory.

shit happens.

rosette dress: H&M The Garden Collection * tights, belt and biker jacket: H&M * booties: YSL Tribs

so here is the most popular dress from the collection, i guess. ;)
my heart still belongs to this. but the red one is not bad either.
because this dress is extravagant enough, i decided to pair it with lotsa black and some badass jacket to make it appropriate for day!

what´s your favorite? the red or the beige one?

thank you for your insights on the clog trend. i know it´s not everyone´s cup of tea.
just as crocs, uggs or creepers not mine. these three pieces of shoewear will never be in my shoe closet. ever.
but that just makes this fashion world so much better!
what would it be like if everyone wears the same shit as the other?
boring, no?

anyway, i won the ASOS Streetstyle Contest!
the facehunter was the judge and he picked me to be one of the five to win his signed book!
how lucky can i get?
cant wait to get my copy!
