Is it Fall or is it Summer? T-shirt dress and Overknees


Here, this is a legit question to ask. Yesterday we had sun and about 27°C during the day. Which means I can get my summer clothing out smack dab in the middle of fall! Not that I complain, especially because we've had cooler days than this in August.
You also remember the bruise, yes? Voilà, my outfit solution for a fall day wearing a summer costume whilst hiding said bruises. Of course, bruises are not a requirement to wear this look...

I am wearing a jersey t-shirt dress, a fairly light cardigan, overknee socks and my beloved biker booties. What do you think of this look?

E' autunno o è estate?

Questa è una domanda legittima da farsi. Ieri era una giornata di sole con temperature fino a 27°C. Il che vuol dire che ho dovuto tirar fuori l'abbigliamento estivo a metà autunno! Non che mi lamenti, soprattutto perché abbiamo avuto giorni più freddi di questo in Agosto.
Vi ricordate anche il livido, si? Voilà, la mia soluzione per un outfit adatto ad una giornata d'autunno che sembra essere una estiva mentre nascondo i lividi. Ovviamente i lividi non sono un requisito per indossarlo...

Indosso un vestito stile maglietta di jersey, un cardigan leggero, calze parigine e i miei adorati stivaletti. Cosa ne pensate di questo look?

Ist es Herbst oder ist es Sommer?

Hier ist das eine berechtigte Frage. Gestern hatten wir tagsueber Temperaturen bis 27°C. Was heisst, das ich mitten im Herbst die Sommerkleidung wieder rausholen durfte. Nicht das ich mich beschwere, yor allem weil wir im August teilweise kaeltere Tage hatten. Erinnert Ihr Euch noch an den blauen Fleck? Voilà, meine Loesung fuer Herbsttage die vorgeben Sommer zu sein waehrend ich gleichzeitig blaue Flecken verstecke. Duerft Ihr aber auch gerne ohne blaue Flecken so anzsiehen.

Ich trage ein T-Shirtkleid aus Jersey, eine leichte Strickjacke, Overkneestruempfe und meine geliebten knoechelhohen Biker Boots. Was haltet Ihr davon?

The Walking Dune - Baggy Pants and Jumper in Sand Shades



I've just came back from two hours of quite intensive karate training, and I am feeling a bit lost for words. Might be because I am tired. Or because I am distracted by that hematoma growing on my right shin. Tomorrow I'll be most likely sore. Alas, I don't mind so much, it happens occasionally even tho we are no contact / light contact. But it will be long pants, boots or opaque tights for awhile haha.

Speaking of pants, here are my sand colored baggy pants again, this time combined with a light jumper in the same shade, my funky metallic blue space clutch and the rust coloured wedges you all came to love.
---

Sono appena tornata da due ore di allenamento di karate intenso. e mi sento un po' di poche parole. Forse perchè sono stanca. O forse perchè si sta sviluppando un bel livido sulla gamba destra. Domani sarò probabilmente dolorante. Però, non importa, succede occasionalmente anche se pratichiamo niente contatto / contatto leggero. Sarà comunque il caso di indossare pantaloni lunghi, stivali o collant opaque per un po' di tempo, haha.

Parlando di pantaloni, qui ci sono ancora una volta i miei pantaloni baggy color sabbia, questa volta indossati con un maglione leggero nella stessa tonalità, abbinati con la pochette futuristica blue metallico e le zeppe color ruggine che avete imparato ad apprezzare.
---

Ich bin gerade von 2 Stunden Karate Training zurueckgekommen und ich fuehle mich etwas wortlos, sprachlos. Vielleicht weil ich muede bin. Oder vielleicht weil sich da auf meinem rechten Schienbein ein schoener blauer Fleck entwickelt. Morgen habe ich wahrscheinlich Muskelkater. Macht nichts. Passiert ab und zu, selbst wenn wir eigentlich Kein Kontakt / Leichter Kontakt praktizieren. Auf jeden Fall sind jetzt erst einmal lange Hosen, Stiefel oder blickdichte Strumpfhosen angesagt.

Da wir gerade von Hosen sprechen, hier sind noch einmal meine sandfarbenen Baggy Karottenhosen, dieses Mal zusammen mit einem leichten Pullover in derselben Farbe, kombiniert mit meiner metallicblauen Space clutch und den rostfarbenen Pumps mit Keilabsatz, die Ihr mittlerweile lieben gelernt habt.

When thrifted luxe meets luxe



Today I am presenting you yet another reason pro-thrifting. I found this baby pastell pink men's shirt from D&G for a couple of bucks at the flea market. It fits perfectly within my preferences of relaxed styling that ventures on the casual side. Yet not too casual. Hence why I paired it with the heeled sandals. Which leads me to another preference of mine. Boy meets Girl within the same look.

The larger size of the shirt allows for playing around with leaving some buttons open and thus adding a touch of sass without it starting to look too, how can I say, cheap. I also folded the sleeve cuffs over once.

Very girl, or should I say quite lady actually, is the necklace that was lent to me by Gioielleria Grado 18 for this shoot. It is made of freshwater pearls, citrine, yellow agate and hematite combined with dainty rings of 18 kt gold. The same goes for the beautiful dangling earrings - a composition of 2 freshwater pearls at the end of 18 kt gold chains. Both are handmade artisan products Made in Italy. For more information, contact grado18@alice.it (or via Facebook) and the shop offered readers of Funky Jungle a 10% discount.

Back to Back - Styling Gray Skinny Jeans with a Blazer



Last Sunday I spent time with my son at the park. While I was sitting there reading, he was climbing around on that wall. I wore the grey skinny jeans again. Yes, imagine that. Back to back. Like any old Jenna Normcore (no offense Jenna).

Combined with an H&M shirt with a sheer panel as the shoulder and sleeves part (it is actually the same type as in this post, different color) and an old grey long blazer that I've had for ages. I bought this blazer when I had a different body - side note: funny that, I didn't actually lose weight as such, I just transformed the chubbyness. Thanks Karate - so I bought this blazer back then before pregnancy and it is now ever so slightly large and slouchy. I like that!

Domenica scorsa sono stata al parco con mio figlio. Mentre io stavo leggendo, lui si arrampicava su un muretto. Indossavo ancora i miei jeans skinny grigi. Si, riuscite a immaginarlo? Un giorno dietro l'altro. Come una qualunque Maria Rossi (senza offesa Maria).

Abbinati ad una maglietta H&M con parti in stoffa trasparente su spalle e maniche (è infatti la stessa maglietta come quella in questo post, soltanto in un colore diverso) e un vecchio blazer lungo che ho da anni. L'ho comprato quando avevo ancora un fisico diverso (nota: la cosa divertente, non ho realmente perso peso, ho solo trasformato la ciccia. Grazie Karate), ad ogni modo ho comprato questa giacca prima della gravidanza e adesso è leggermente larga. Mi piace!
---

Letzten Sonntag war ich mit meinem Sohn im Park. Waehrend ich da sass und las, kletterte er auf der Mauer herum. Ich hatte noch einmal meine grauen Skinny Jeans an. Ja, stellt Euch das mal vor. Zweimal hintereinander. So wie jede olle Steffie Normalo (soll keine Beleidung an Steffie sein).

Dazu trug ich ein olivgruenes H&M Top mit Schulter- und Aermelbereich aus transparentem Stoff (Organza? Ist das gleiche Modell wie das Top in diesem Post, nur eine andere Farbe) und einen alten langen Blazer den ich seit Jahren im Schrank habe. Den hatte ich gekauft als ich noch eine andere Figur hatte (Anmerkung: Das Lustige daran ist, dass ich nicht einmal Gewicht verloren habe, nur den Speck verwandelt. Danke Karate) also wie gesagt, ich habe diesen Blazer vor meiner Schwangerschaft gekauft und jetzt ist er leicht zu gross und faellt sehr locker. Das gefaellt mir.

Would you wear it - NYFW SS15 by Rodarte

I am curious - Would you wear it?




Well, besides having fantastic looks for the upcoming style season spring summer 2015 for us, to which I've treated you so far, the fashion weeks have also been a treasure trove for my category "Would you wear it?". Today, we are going to take a look at the SS15 collection of Rodarte (and remember girls, any press is better than no press).

Now, I am obviously not a fashion critic, just a woman with an opinion guided by her personal taste and as such, I am asking your personal taste:

Would you wear it?

Ebbene sì, nonostante dei look splendidi per la stagione moda primavera estate 2015, con i quali vi ho finora coccolati, le settimane della moda erano anche una fonte di ispirazione per la mia categoria "Would you wear it?", nota anche come "Lo metteresti?". Oggi diamo un'occhiata alla collezione SS15 di Rodarte (e ricordatevi ragazze, ogni pubblicità e meglio di niente).

Ovviamente non sono una grande critica di moda, soltanto una donna con opinione guidata dal mio gusto personale, il quale chiede al vostro gusto personale:

"Lo mettereste?"

Neben wirklich ganz tollen Looks fuer die kommende Mode Saison Fruehjahr Sommer 2015, waren die Modewochen auch eine wahre Fundgrube fuer meine Kategorie "Would you wear it", d.h. Wuerdet Ihr es anziehen. Heute wollen wir mal einen Blick auf die SS15 Kollektion von Rodarte werfen (und denkt dran Maedels, jede Presse ist besser als gar keine).

Nun bin ich ja nicht wirklich ein gestandener Fashion Kritiker, nur eine Frau mit Meinung geleitet vom persoenlichem Geschmack, welcher jetzt Euren persoenlichen Geschmack fragt:

Wuerdet Ihr das tragen?
