cowboys, Indians and acoustic guitar songs


I'm back after a fun weekend and a laid-back Monday and Tuesday with actual summer temperatures. These outfit pics were taken last week before the weather got summery, hence the black tights. I couldn't wait to wear this sunny yellow skirt for the first time! Bought it in the Peek & Cloppenburg sale some months ago but wasn't sure if the balloon shape would flatter my legs. Well my legs are not the bomb in it, but it looks okay enough to wear it out, so I paired it with my new denim shirt and my favourite summer shoes, the Minnetonkas. Also added the horse-print scarf to match the cowboys and Indians theme of the shirt and shoes.
To raise the issue of summer weather again I have to say that either the German summer has become more bearable, or my body has changed somehow because I noticed that I sweat less than in the years before and I seem to be able to handle the heat much better. Not as many insect bites as in the years before, also not as much prickly heat and less massive sweating. Am I becoming a summer person after all? Well, no not really, I still love me my freezing cold winters. But it's amazing to experience how things can get better after you've been convinced for your whole life that they wouldn't.
In other terms I'm not that grumpy anymore because of the temperatures and I like it.
Alright, normally my post would end here after the tried and tested structure of photo-text-photos-text-photos, BUT today I stumbled upon a really awesome Youtube Channel I'd like to share in case there are people out there who are as obsessed about good acoustic guitar songs as I am. There are not many videos online there, but the few you can see there are so awesome! The bands are probably not that common among most of my readers, but if you like Defeater or Make, Do And Mend like me, you'll like this channel!
It's called Porchsessions, click your way over to have a look, it's really cool!
Here are my two favourite videos, really really lovely acoustic songs!
Imagine sitting on the porch of a little beach house with a straw hat, sunglasses, a cold drink and these acoustic songs in your ear - beautiful...

Hope you liked this. I adore all of the videos on this channel and will be listening to them for the next couple of weeks minimum.

Have a lovely day!

  1. I love this look!! That button up is so perfect with the bright yellow skirt. And your patterned skirt is lovely. You look fantastic :)

  2. How pretty!! I have a similar yellow linen skirt with that shape..but without the bow -- and I love it!! The only thing is that it gets kind of wrinkly because of the material :(

    I love that second to last photo..the close-up of your scarf/top/skirt. So pretty!!

  25. Such a cute skirt & I think the shape suits you :)!

  26. Hot weather makes me grumpy too so I definitely know where you're coming from!

    You look so cute in this outfit. I love the moccasins worn in the summer time. For whatever reason I always see them as a cold-weather shoe, but I love this. Your skirt is also super adorable and fun!

  27. I love discovering new music to listen to! It's like Christmas, haha.

    I love the skirt, it's an amazing colour!

  29. minnetonkas are great investments. Enjoyed ur acoustic choices babe.

  30. I love the blue and yellow! Your new blonde hair is delightful, too!

  31. You are the first person I know who actually likes winter. Living in Canada and being the subject of truly cruel winters, I loathe winters, though surprisingly, I do like fall attire. Your skirt is so, so adorable! I love the bow and the beautiful electric color!!


  32. Lovely photos and beautiful look!
