delightful day

Hi guys!

May I introduce you my new favourite summer dress? Here it is, beige with blue florals and fluffy and light. This dress really made my day: this morning I went out on the balcony to make a weather check and then I was like "Oh no, way too warm for me.", but in this dress I felt perfectly chic and cool. An almost sweat-free day is a good day :)

dress: new yorker, belt: h&m, bag: vintage, shoes. thrifted, bangles: accessorize

To return to the summer legs issue: here you see my legs only covered by very thin tan tights. Oh first of all:

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the comments on my leg problem! It's so nice of you all to encourage me to go out and don't care about red stains and this inflammation! There were also people telling me that it would be better to conceal the problem spots and I appreciate their honesty about it, too. I understand both sides.

I just wanted to point out that I've already been through this over and over. Should I conceal it or not? You know, when I was younger I didn't wear short pants in summer at all. I covered up in jeans, no matter how hot it was and I never went to the swimming pool or something. I didn't even wear shoes that would be open and reveal the stains on my foot.
Well, and then after I've had enough of it, my parents made it possible for me to do a laser therapy at a university hospital, which was so great of them! I mean, I was a teenager and just wanted to get rid of this shit because it was simply not normal (you know how the media influences young girls).
I quit the laser therapy when I moved to Düsseldorf then because I didn't have the time to go to the hospital over in Cologne once a week. Well and actually I felt that I didn't need it anymore.

Now that I grew a bit older and more experienced I walk around with the leftovers of the therapy and feel pretty good. Well, okay I still don't like my legs very much, but I see it more relaxed now. I've been wearing skirts and dresses and flats and all for several years now and I learned to handle some strange gazes.
I was just so curious about what others think about my attitude, running around with the congenital blemish and I cannot ask foreign people on the street after they stared at me like crazy ;) So I thought I could ask you off the record and I'm glad I got some answers here and at Chictopia.

Another delightful thing about today: H&M sale!

Oh you wouldn't believe how many stuff I took to the dressing room, it must have been 15 pieces or so! It was all so pretty and cheap! I think I will return there next week so get some more basic shirts.
Today I got so many clothes for 30 Euro. Awesome! Look:

Aren't these the cutest? I love nautical themes for summer!

Oh and by the way: everyone who still wants to have a piece from the sold out H&M Garden collection should look through the H&M sale stands because I saw some of the supposedly sold out stuff there ;)

I hope you guys have an amazing day! Toodles :)

  1. I looove your dress!! It's so pretty! Those nautical socks are too cute.

  2. What a pretty dress and I love your purse too! As for your legs, you should not have to suffer in tights it doesn't look very major. Since I know nothing of the condition if this would be possible: but what a great place for an awesome tattoo it might be.

  3. Oh my goodness...I soooo want that dress..adorable. All I can say is that you are soooooo cute. Have a great weekend. xoxo

    I am glad you weren't hot in your dress and hope you felt secure! Your too gorgeous to let a few leg blemishes hold you back :)
    ps, I have a new blog, love for you to check it out!

  5. You look amazing. I am seriously jealous of that dress right now... I am obsessed with 'sleaved' dresses lately, and that one is so beautiful. It suits you so well, though! And that is a seriously awesome deal you got at H&M, I went there today and spent $34 only to get two things haha!

  6. That is one super sute dress! We are having sales here too and I have gotten some pretty amazing things. Isn't the summer sales one of the great things about this season (you except the weather and free time?) xx

  7. First - that is a fantastic dress! Second - you are so lovely just the way you are. Our differences are what make us special. Regardless of what anyone says - you have to do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable.

    Enjoy that lovely dress!

  8. that outfit is adorable, i really love the dress too, the colours are really sweet and the belt gives a nice detail to the waist!
    for your leg, honestly,i didnt notice. I dont know if where you live people are the same as where i live, but i dont think people make a big deal about it, if you are confident, youll have no problem to live with it!
    xx, zaia
