God, it was the nastiest fall weather today! Cold wind and heavy rain all day and I hadn't expected it and was so smart to put on a dress in the morning aaah.
I had to skip uni today because of a doctors-marathon - literally. I've been having these allergy symptoms for weeks now (irritated eyes, blocked nose, shortness of breath) but pollen time is over, so I was wondering what else it could be? Well, the allergist found out that I reacted pretty intense on the test for house dust mites and as they're primarily located in the bed, they are the reason why I get these allergy attacks almost every evening! Ugh! I don't even want to think about these disgusting tiny little critters and that they are in my bed :-/
Anyway, now my health insurance provides me with special allergy-tested bed linen that can be put under the normal sheets to keep the critters inside so that they won't come out and bother me.
Afterwards I had to head to two other doctors to take care of some paperwork (how I love German bureaucracy...).
dress: joe brown's via ebay, coat + circle scarf + belt: h&m, cardi + tights: gina tricot, boots: bullboxer, necklace: accessorize
And then the weather... I love this dress so much but it really wasn't the right choice for wind and rain. Some weeks ago I styled this dress for a cloudy late summer's day and today I wanted to try out if it's fit for fall too. Well, it is but rather for warmer fall days I guess. However my new favourite tights were perfect: I wore them with two pairs of skin coloured ones underneith and my legs felt warm. Great! :)
I also took some photos with my mobile when I was out and about, so here they are:

this is what Düsseldorf city looks like in fall
I found this lovely skater dress at Gina Tricot, now I'll have to consider if it's worth 30€ or if I should wait for their sale.
Aw I'm so obsessed with dresses lately. Before I had this skirt phase but now I want to own many many dresses, so I'm trying to restock my closet with them :) The good thing about buying dresses in a transition season is that you look for pieces that are at best suitable for warm and cold weather. So do you remember the H&M floral dress I had a crush on the other day? I finally bought it. Furthermore I got two hats and some lovely pyjama pants because the weather made me feel like I had to stock up on cozy things.
everything H&M (okay I know the shoes aren't cozy but they were in the sale for 3€, so whatever ^^)
gorgeous florals! (pyjama pants left, dress right, both H&M)
I got three of these adorable panties for 10€ at Hunkemöller (their underwear is so super-comfy, so I wear it to sleep)
Sale bargain! This Pocahontas-style necklace was 3€ (it's from Six).
AND last but not least I felt like stocking up on handbags for fall. I redeemed this beauty as a chic reward from Chictopia and I had these two in the mail today (both purchased via Ebay for 1€ + shipping each):
black vintage fake leather teacher's bag
brown/green/darkblue vintage purse
Ah sorry, lots and lots of shopping today. I hope you liked the post though.
Do you feel/have you felt like stocking up on any special items for fall lately? Does the weather make you buy things? :)
Have a great Wednesday!
