novelties

novelties outfit post title

Hello!

The other day the German summer decided to be hot and humid for two days which was the perfect occasion for me to wear out my new maxi dress. I had been looking for a nice one for months but for some reasons most of the ones I tried on made me look very pregnant or were just not flattering because I'm rather short and rarely ever wear high heels. So a flattering long dress that would go with flats was number one on my wish list. I ran from shop to shop every time I was downtown and finally - and surprisingly - found this gem at C&A. I don't shop there often but that day it was the right decision to enter the store because when I left I carried the dress in my bag and my wallet contained only 19 € less than before.


Back home I immediately thought about how to style it and came to the conclusion that I would have to combine it with sandals or sneakers because flats looked odd. Furthermore the print is pretty bold so I kept everything else rather simple.
Can you believe it is the first time in ages that I bought sandals for summer too? I think the last time I wore sandals was in elementary school because my mum forced me to. I really dislike feet, especially toes, they just look ugly to me, that's why I don't want to expose them. This year however I figured that sandals with a closed toe part would be a good compromise.


To sum this up: I have never in my whole life looked so summery! It's unusual for me to look like this but the dress and sandals are growing on me, I'm slowly letting go of the urge to wear jeans and sneakers in the summer time.

What about you? Have you tried out something new clothing-wise lately?

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I definitely feel the same way about sandals. I hardly ever wear them because I hate showing off my feet. Those are very cute, and a great compromise for girls like me. This entire outfit is beautiful, and you look lovely.

  11. It's a lovely pattern on the dress but I would be inclined to sew it into a midi dress. I'm not so tall and I just don't like the way maxi dresses look on me.

    I'm the same with sandals but I did recently buy a pair that were closed toe like yours so I will actually wear them!

  12. Sieht das toll aus!!!!! Wunderschönes Kleid und es steht dir auch einfach so gut! Ich mag das Muster total. Würd sicher auch mit na Leder- & Jenasjacke sau gut aussehn. Da kann man echt fast alles drauf kombinieren. Mein Problem sind da echt immer die Schuhe. Ich hab nicht viel Sandalen weil ich die an mir immer so komisch find und dann wirds echt eng :-D Deine Sandalen dagegen find ich sau süß!

  16. Ich finde Maxi-Dresses immer recht schwierig, mir will nie eines so 100%ig gefallen. Deines ist aber definitiv das schönste, das ich bisher gesehen habe. Schön kombiniert mit dem Jäckchen ... und der Gürtel passt nicht nur perfekt zum Kleid, sondern auch zu deinen Haaren. :)

  21. Stunning - and for such a bargain too! High five on that.
    I love maxi dresses - this one is great and really suits you! I also don't wear heels often and hate it when I look short and stumpy! haha

    I love the pattern of this dress and how you've paired it is perfect!

  27. Eeek! You look absolutely amazing! That maxi dress is a stunner on you and those sandals are perfect! I have the same qualms with feet - especially my own :S I always feel so self-conscious too when wearing toe-revealing footwear so I usually stay clear of that, but your sandals are the best! No worries with those babies! Anyways, you look darling, dear, in your summery look :)
