pink thunderstorms

pink thunderstorms outfit post title

Hello peeps!

It was stormy, really stormy last night here. Scary stormy! The sky turned dark grey all of a sudden, it began to rain and crazy winds swept through the streets. Then came thunder and lightning, more heavy winds and it was really raining cats and dogs and baby elephants.
Twigs, branches and whole trees fell, got tumbled around, hit cars, shop windows and according to the news unfortunately also three people. Cars were blewn onto the tram rails, big waste containers were blewn against an iron gate and pulled it off its hinges. Roof tiles came crashing down on the pavement.
I have never ever seen such a thunderstorm in my whole life!
I still can only imagine how it must be for other places in the world which have to fight hurricanes on a regular base, but damn this was unbelievable if you've never seen it before. We had storm forces of up to 144 km per hour (that's 90 miles per hour) - that officially is a hurricane.
Today however it was unbearably hot and humid again. I had the day off and wandered through the streets heading for the old town to meet a friend. I had to walk because there was no public transport at all today. On my way the aftermath was clearly visible, whole trees lying in the streets, on cars and branches and twigs everywhere.
But it was good to see the city being awakened and reconditioned, everyone swept the pavements, tried to move branches out of the way, neighbours helped each other with their flooded basements.
Düsseldorf is a great place with great people - most of them not nearly as snobby as the reputation says they are. A proud city that pays lots of attention to a spotless cityscape. So it'll get up, brush the dirt from its shoulders and shine again soon.

But maybe now for something different not as tragic to brighten up the mood okay? I don't mean to sound like a shallow person switching from a disastrous storm to my outfit, but the damage is done and now we can just try to build everything up again and make better preparations next time. That's how life will always make us learn from mistakes.
As for the outfit pics they were taken last week before the heat wave and storms struck us, therefore there's a jumper involved. I don't know what it is that makes me love pink so much at the moment but there has definitely been some change going on in my mind regarding this colour. It's not that I hated it before, it just didn't do anything to me and I had no idea how to style it and thought it doesn't look great with my hair anyway. But lo and behold! I bought an amazingly pretty pink lipstick the other day and last week I couldn't say no to this neonish (not so much in the photos, but actually is) candy pink jumper.
Like it? 

By the way every time I post a new outfit I think about my "moral issues shopping post" again, that's why I'd like to say that in this outfit the skirt, belt and shoes are second hand finds.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

  11. Die Gewitter bei euch scheinen wirklich noch mal um einiges heftiger gewesen zu sein... bei uns (ich wohne direkt an den Alpen) kommen jetzt erst seit zwei Tagen wirklich Gewitterwolken an und bis jetzt war es zwar schon oft sehr laut und heftig, aber noch nicht richtig schlimm. Ich hoffe das bleibt so. Und die Hitze könnte so langsam echt etwas weniger werden.

  12. That sounds like a scary hurricane. I'm glad you came through it okay and that Düsseldorf is populated with great people.

    I love pink too! I love your light blue Primark skirt, the pretty pink colour of your H&M jumper and your dark blue tights. Pink and blue look fabulous styled together. Your pink lipstick is pretty too.

  13. I'm so jealous of your jumper! It's such a perfect candy pink colour, and it looks gorgeous with that skirt :) Pink suits you! I never would have guessed it was a second hand find xx


Thank you so much for your comments, I really appreciate every single one! <3
