OUTFIT: Dirndl love

The Oktoberfest in Munich has literally been on my to-do list for years now. It is almost embarrassing to admit that I’ve never been. Luckily, however, that will all change this year! I am probably a little too excited about the fact that I’ll finally get to go this year and even started a countdown! Oh, and naturally I’ve been trying on my stunning HALLHUBER Dirndl on a weekly basis – just to be sure, you know? I am so in love with it and can’t wait to officially wear it in 3 weeks. I got to choose one of their 3 limited edition Dirndl and this one was love at first sight. The fuchsia apron is 100% silk and I adore the pattern of the forest green fabric. Plus, it fit like a glove on the first try. I know that most of you would probably choose nude pumps or ballet flats with a Dirndl, however, the Oktoberfest is less traditional than the Austrian “Trachten” events, so I decided to pair mine with the new ASH boots and a crossbody bag. At first I also wanted a big sparkly statement necklace, but then decided to go for a delicate heart necklace. I’m not going to lie, I am more than smitten with my choices and will be wearing this exact outfit in 3 weeks at the Oktoberfest in Munich!

BITS & PIECES: hello September

September isn’t really amongst my favorites months, as we officially have to say good-bye to Summer, but it also holds a few special dates, such as the anniversary with my favorite mister or his birthday. And as of this year, September will always be the month that Kathi and I officially got the keys for our first office. Sometimes it still feels absolutely surreal that we get to call this our life. I am so proud of everything we have accomplished during the last year and so excited for everything the future has in store for us. So here’s a little insta-recap from the past few weeks:

VIDEO: easy big curls – tutorial

Recently I have been getting a crazy amount of questions regarding my curls that I’ve worn in a few pictures. You guys wrote emails, asked on Instagram, commented here on the blog … so I would say it is about time to let you guys into the secret (which isn’t really a secret). I am currently in the process of planning my outfit for this year’s Oktoberfest in Munich for the #coverprwiesn, as I’ll be going for the first time (yay!!). I already received my gorgeous Dirndl last week, and this week I decided on the accessories and hair. At first I thought I wanted to wear my hair in a braided up-do, but then decided that a Dirndl + braids would look suuuper “Heidi-style”, so I will probably wear my hair in curls, just like in today’s tutorial. I have teamed up with KMS California to show you guys that it only takes a few products and about 20 minutes of your time to get easy big curls that will stay in shape all day (and night).

OUTFIT: floyd

Contrary to what my boyfriend believes, I actually do not own a lot of shoes. I have a few favorites, that I wear ALL the time, but I certainly don’t have endless choices. It usually doesn’t bother me, but sometimes (ie. sandals this Summer), I literally have just 1 pair that works and it annoys me. For this Fall, I decided to stock up on boots early enough, because by the time it gets cold and I realize that I need something warmer, all the good stuff is already sold out. In my quest, I managed to find THE most perfect leather boots ever: FLOYD! I am literally obsessed and have been wearing these non-stop since last week. Good thing there’s no Summer in sight, so wearing leather boots in August is totally legitimate! Obviously these are not the best idea for snowy days, but I don’t even want to think about Winter yet, so for now I am content and happy with my new Ash leather boots.
