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?
