Romantic German Architecture - Thrifted Maxi Goes Boho Glam

The weather is ... the weather, that's to say not sunny & shiny summer everyday, but when it's stable we are out and about. In this instance, we went to visit Heppenheim, one of the small towns along Germany's Bergstrasse, which runs parallel to the Rhine along the west side of the Odenwald hill range The historic old town part was almost entirely composed of these timber framework houses that are so typical for the aesthetic of a certain zone and time period. Narrow streets with beautiful little nooks and corners.



I was wearing a simple blue thrifted strapless maxi dress. Flea markets are still my kryptonite. But they are also a good, slow way to do fashion. Added some boho glam with a leo print scarf and long beaded earrings with tassels as well as the sunglasses. Accessories, you gotta love them.

And by the way, does anyone who ever played WoW remember the player made PvP video "Big Blue Dress"? I loved that one. Yes I know, totally random, but I had to think of it when contemplating a title for this post. Long blue dress .... big blue dress ...

In other news, you will likely not hear from me again until early September here on the blog, as I am going to do a digital fast during the upcoming Mercury Retrograde period. Yep. I may or may not finish up some of the posts I already drafted out, but if I do I'll go and say so on the only social media outlet that I'll keep active, which is my Instagram account.

I need the time to clear up my e-mail and social media accounts. Gosh you have no idea how one of those e-mail accounts looks. I am flooded with newsletters I cannot even remember what the site was about in the first place. And I need to re-orient the direction of Funky Jungle. My blog needs to grow into the direction I do, otherwise the dissonance will sooner or later kill it. Honestly I wasn't really courageous enough the first time around. But before I do anything, I'll have to mull it over away from distractions. Oh and well I simply want to enjoy my holidays and summer, being fully present.
