Outfit: And begin again when you reach the end.

Floral fringed kimono: OASAP || Wild spirit top: Brandy Melville || Studded and washed pink denim shorts: Tally Weijl (old) || Platform heels: The Whitepepper || Necklace & bracelet: Dixi || Belt: Miss Selfridge (old) || Strap bra: Topshop

I guess no other kimono deserves the title "statement kimono" as much as this one does. It's definitely an eye-catcher and PERFECT for festivals. The long tassels, the beautiful rose print (roses are my favorite flowers btw!) and its length make you stand out from the crowd, that's for sure. It is very expensive looking even though it wasn't pricy at all. You can get it from OASAP *click* which became my favorite chinese fashion retailer. Fast shipping and they sell some really edgy beauties. :-)
 A friend of mine already told me I always look like I would go straight to a festival every day, I can't help, it's probably true. ;-D Maybe my purpose of posting this outfit was to bring back summer for you guys or just to express my sorrow about not being able to visit Tomorrowworld (it was this weekend) this year, I don't  know haha. ;-D That's why I probably chose the title and lyrics of Knife Party's new song Begin Again: "and begin again when you reach the end". It's my current favorite song, I play it every day. Check it out here, you'll love it! 
 Exept the kimono and the bra (I had been searching for a strappy bra for such a long time and finally found one, it's perfect for deep neck tees!) everything has been in my wardrobe for quite a long time. For example I bought the printed top at Brandy Melville like 2 years ago as well as the pink washed shorts or my boots I actually got for my prom outfit a couple of months ago. Buying good quality print tops is always worth it, you will have them for years! :-)

Outfit: Cosmic dust.

Oversized plaid flannel shirt: Zara || Ying Yang mandala tee: Urban Outfitters || Ripped/Studded shorts: Romwe || Coin Necklace: Dixi || Buckled boots: Schuhtempel 24  (Direct link: here)

My favorite cozy autumn combo for today's outfit post: A flannel shirt, a printed tee, sheer black tights and denim shorts. I think a plaid flannel should be in everyone's wardrobe, it's so cozy, soft and probably the best layering piece. I like flannels oversized, cozy and longer, so they look like being directly borrowed from your boyfriend (Ok, I'm single, but so what!) ;-D. I really love this oversized one from Zara, it's black and white and goes with everything. On top of that it's so warm! Isn't the print of the tee beautiful? It reminds me of those beautiful mandala prints on those throws I totally love, but which also doesn't fit in my small room haha. So I simply wear them on my shirt. Urban Outfitters is always an awesome place to shop when you're searching for cool print shirts with some boho vibe. 
Furthermore I'm wearing my new boots I got from Schuhtempel 24, a german online shop for shoes. Those are perfect for my autumn looks - they weren't expensive at all, but they definitely look very expensive and just like the ones Jeffrey Campbell has sold. If you would like to get them too, check out their Facebook page. They often have some discounts up to 40% off! 
I wish you all a perfect weekend, enjoy it! xx

Outfit: As i look outside, all i want is just to get away.

Hollow-knit sweater: Urban Outfitters || Tribal Necklace: Market || Destroyed shorts: Romwe || Suspender tights: old but similar available on Romwe || Boots: Vagabond via Urban Outfitters

Now you really can't deny that autumn's here - so it's time for getting dressed up with cozy sweaters, cardigans and ponchos again. I actually don't own as many sweaters as cardigans, because they aren't that versatile compared to cardigans. But this one is the perfect trans seasonal addition to my wardrobe. It's not as thick as some others, but still quite cozy and when it's not too windy perfect for the colder days, too. And I love its longer length! Even in winter it's still wearable under a leather jacket or coat. I don't want to stop wearing my beloved shorts, so I simply wear them with some tights. Try it out, it's warmer as you might think. ;-D 
I hadn't wore those tights for months before, I totally forget about them. I love the over knee style and because tights + over knee socks were a bit TOO warm, I chose my tights I already owned around two years. 

The weather's really crazy at the moment, when I went for a walk to town it was around 15°C and cloudy. On half way I saw some really dark clouds coming and already heard some thunder. Frankly I reached town before the pouring rain and hail started, so I could wait until the storm was over. Really creepy, I wish I could be somewhere on earth where it's hot, sunny and close to the seaside. Aren't we all dreaming of endless summer? Well, maybe we wouldn't appreciate/enjoy summer as much as we do when there wasn't cold, rainy and uncomfortable weather. But I guess winter has its positive sides, too. Christmas without any snow or at least cold temperature would be weird for us europeans!

Update #9

New in…
I got these beautiful buckled platform boots from the german online shop Schuhtempel24! (Get them here ; like their Facebook page for discounts up to 40% off!)They go with everything and I can't wait to wear them with flannel shirts, tights and leather jackets. Perfect for fall when the looks are getting grungier again!

Saint Laurent's SS15 collections are perfect. The beautiful mixture of boho, western and 70s inspired styles. Some outfits from the men collection could have already been worn by Jimi Hendrix himself! Furthermore look at the jewelry - you all know those afghan/kuchi inspired necklaces are so me! I already thought Saint Laurent's AW13 collection is the best (it pretty much described my style I wear in autumn/winter. Very grunge chic) - now Saint Laurent presents my summer style. I could look at those velvet fabrics, embroidered and embellished details forever.

So many beautiful songs have come across which I love listening to daily. I couldn't decide, so I simply show you the best four of them:

Fall Out Boy - Centuries:

ILOVEMAKONNEN - Tuesday feat. Drake:

Kasbo & Just A Gent - Sovereign:

Young Guns - I Want Out:

That gorgeous dress by one of the coolest brands UNIF! It's perfect, I love the lace collar so much. It reminds me of American Horror Story's Coven series and it's name "doll dress" is totally justified.  (with some witchy vibe, too!) You can get it from Shopbop or UNIF.

Random thoughts…

I enjoyed probably the very last summer days here in Germany this year and went for a long walk to town almost every day. I spend a lot of time in Bamberg (picture in the middle) around 3 times! Even though it's quite a small town, I love being there. The streets are full of people, there are cute alleys everywhere and the town got that ancient atmosphere.

Outfit: Some legends are told, some turn to dust or to gold.

Havana crochet mini dress: Spell Designs via KyssJohanna || Coin necklace: Urban Outfitters || Boots: Gamloong via Humanic || Bracelets & rings: Vintage findings or from the market

If there's a perfect crochet dress - here it is! Its backless, it's perfectly soft (the softest crochet fabric I've ever seen/felt!) and even a cozier one when it's worn under leather jackets in autumn. It looks like it came directly from a vintage shop selling dresses from the 70s, I guess this is one example of so many others that beautiful dresses will never get old and you can keep and wear them for a lifetime. Backless + crochet is the perfect mixture of cute and sexy! Those circles and flowers as a pattern somehow remind me of mandalas, it's so gorgeous right? And it also got the perfect length! It's from my favorite brand Spell Designs, you all know I have a growing collection going on in my wardrobe (and I'm also looking forward to their next collection! I'm obsessed haha). Even though their clothes are on the more expensive site (prices can be compared to Free People, Urban Outfitters or ASOS) it's definitely worth saving up money for them because their clothes will never leave your wardrobe again and can be worn even in winter with some layers. In order to complete the look I wear my favorite statement necklace, my beloved rings and bracelets and some cowboy booties in dark brown shades.

Outfit: Promises and they still feel all so wasted on myself.

Lace embroidered duster kimono: Forever 21 || Bustier crop top: Free People || Concho Belt: Vintage via eBay || Choker: Regalrose || Velvet skirt: OASAP || Boots: Vagabond

Velvet + lace is definitely a perfect combo for layering in autumn! The outfit is a mixture of grunge, goth and boho in a way and it looks quite "doll-like" and vintage inspired or at least I think so. The lace duster immediately caught my eye when I was browsing through the Forever 21 website, it's the perfect layering piece! You will definitely see it way more often in my fall outfit posts when I'm wearing it under cardigans or flannel shirts! It's very vintage and expensive looking, I'm so in love with F21's current AW collection! I also dig my velvet skirts out again, velvet is the perfect fabric for autumn and winter. I really liked the grey tone with the dark charcoal color of my bustier top I got from Free People a couple of months ago.  Furthermore I found this perfect rose quartz choker necklace on Regalrose, one of my favorite jewelry shops. It's simply beautiful and I think it matches perfectly to the outfit. 
Today and tomorrow will probably the last hot days here in Germany, so I will definitely enjoy them as much as I can. I'm going to miss summer and the hot breeze, but I'm also looking forward to those days when the leaves are getting colorful and falling to the ground and halloween is coming. Wish you all an awesome weekend, loves! xx
