Wedding Weekend

Last weekend we were at the civil wedding of my sister-in-law and it was wonderful! The 
bridal couple was beaming of happiness and there was this special atmosphere that one
can only find at weddings. I love that!

Scalloped Skirt

I have seen scalloped skirts or dresses everywhere this summer and 'cause I really 
like the shape, I had to sew one for myself as well. 
I searched for a pattern I could use and soon found one which had a simple shape 
where the scallops would be a great finish.

I combined it with my favorite blouse, some espadrilles and my new Phillip Lim Bag.

I'm recently enjoying the free time with my family. We are doing lots of fun stuff and 
explore a lot of Bavaria since it's all new to us. So far I can say we LOVE it!!!

Outfit: Flowers & Stripes

The weather here in Bavaria is crazy right now!  We have temperatures up to 40 degrees

the cornfields...So my striped shirt had a chance to crawl out of my wardrobe and be paired 
with another DIY-project: this flower skirt. Actually the plan was to sew some cushions 
out of this fabric but then I thought it's just too damn beautiful to be a cushion!

So now it became a nice skirt with really big pockets on the front, a detail which I 
especially like. 
Also a perfect opportunity for my summer edition of Rebecca Minkoff's Mini Mac. I just love 
the combo of flowers and stripes:o)
