Don't Paint It Black

Hi guys :-)

I'm sorry, I haven't posted in a while & I can't check your blogs as often as I'd like to :-( So please don't think I'm ignoring you, I just happen to be really busy these days & can't sit in front of the computer as often as I'd like to.

Today I'd like to show you an outfit that I wore a few days ago. As much as I love the color black, I decided this year I should try to think out of the box & try to wear more colorful outfits. 
I already bought several floral print dresses & skirts, but it's still too cold to wear them. Even though it has gotten warmer with lots of sunshine, unfortunately the air is still pretty cold.

So this is my first take on a not solely black outfit:

My boyfriend came home & made fun of me while I tried to take a pic.
I couldn't stop giggling because he acted so silly :-D

The pattern of my dress.

Jewelry & Chanel "Black Pearl" polish.


My favorite boots ever! They are so comfortable & I wear them all the time.

dress: C&A

scarf: From a little boutique near to where I live.

leggins: American Apparel

shoes: Deichmann

Me, wearing my nude everyday make up. In everyday life, I often don't have the time to put on a whole lot of make up (& admittingly, I can be a little lazy, too *g*).
Sorry, the quality of my photo is even worse than usual. I've no clue why that is, I think the lighting was pretty bad.

eyes: MAC "Shroom" all over lid & to highlight. MAC "Satin Taupe" in crease. No liner.

face: MAC Mineralize Satinfinish foundation in NW20

cheeks: MAC "Melba"

lips: MAC "Hug Me"

polish: Chanel "Black Pearl"

I'm also wearing a pigtail headband that I purchased a few weeks ago from eBay.
If I remember correctly, it's a Singapore based seller.
As I could only go from the pictures he posted, I was a little unsure about which color to choose.
Then I decided to go for light brown, even though I think my hair isn't light but rather medium brown. Anyways, turned out the color of the hairband looks exactly like the swatch *yay* IMO, it matches my haircolor pretty well.

  35. love your boots too, and that's a great pattern on that dress. i find myself in a lot of black as well, so i'm also trying to dress out of the box too. :)

  36. Very nice outfit, you look very good and the dress is beautiful.
    This is such a good idea with the braided headband, it's easier this way, because I'm not that good at braiding my hair.

  37. Hey!
    I know your not ignoring me :) I'm so busy too! Trying to run two different blogs & personal stuff is too much.
    I really like this outfit, very comfy and the pattern is really pretty. Your hair looks great as well. It's nice to add a pop of color every now and then. Take care and keep in touch XOXO

  42. Ich habe leider keinen richtigen Lieblingsverein... ich weiß seeehr blöd! Aber ich mag dortmund, leverkusen und den FC (seit neustem ;). Welcher ist denn dein Lieblingsverein?
    Ich spiele auch selber schon seit über 10 Jahren und ja,man gewöhnt sich an die Männer und dass es "ihr Reich" ist :D

  43. Das Kleid schaut wunderschön aus! Besonders weil es oben rum so schön zudeckt, das mag ich an Kleidern, ich mag Spaghettiträger-Kleider nicht so gern, das hier gefällt mir wirklich super-gut!

  50. Es cierto que abusamos del negro, este vestido me encanta y hace juego con tus ojos. Besos Marcela.

  51. jepp mal will nicht gleich von anfang an stress mit dem vermieter etc haben, und wir waren froh eine wohnung gefunden zu haben, die in etwas unseren vorstellungen entsprach (natürlich ohne dreck hehe)---. naja, die suche geht weiter bis wir etwas besseres oder gar eigenes gefunden haben müssen wir wohl den zustand ertragen :)
    danke fürs lesen und kommentieren, wünsch dir ein tolles wochenende!

  52. You look very beautiful!
    And the dress is beautiful


  53. Ooooh I love how your hair is done!
    I'm working on wearing less black, too :d
    Take your time to answer the e-mail, I understand how it feels like when you have a dozen of things on your to-do-list :d

    I'm working in the garden for about an hour everyday now, lol. People in Belgium are crazy about super neat grass lik they have on football fieds. And perfect square hedges and stuff. Even though Japanese/chinese gardens happen to be a bit like that, too, I love them! And I also love wild ones :d
    I was very sad about Elizabeth Taylor, too, but I'm glad she had to chance to age gracefully. Not like Marilyn, her life was so sad :( She was so young and I think only few people understood her...

    Most of all I listen to music from the fifties, sixties,... I also love music from the nineties :d And the hip hop and R&B that was made between 1990 - 2005. Something like that:
    Memories! I rarely listen to evanescence or nightwish, but when I have a mood like that, I listen to it for about 4 days non-stop. And native american music. For some reason I really feel connected with Native Americans. I cry at this song: {the text in the beginning...}

    And this is my current obsession:

    I almost forgot to mention that in these pictures you can tell your a German woman, there's something in your face that reminds me of other famous german women. {And then I have Claudia Schiffer in mind and not Angela Merkel...} You are beautiful!

  54. I tried to comment on this post a while ago but it looks like it didn't go through! :S

    Ah well. Lol.

    I just wanted to let you know I adore your everyday makeup. It is so chic and effortless, plus you are so gorgeous you are able to get away with minimal makeup. :) I love your outfit as well. The black scarf was the perfect touch! xoxo

  55. Fantastic!!!

  56. I always notice your hair first and I was just about to comment about your plaits when i saw it’s a hair band. It looks just like your actual hair colour and I love your hair colour so much! It has an ashen brown tone to it that I absolutely adore. I like your black boots too coz the ribbons are so unique.
    I’ve completed your tag and I’ve also tagged you in another tag. If you’re bz, it’s perfectly ok. I just tot it would be fun.

  57. Bin sehr überzeugt von MAC-Kosmetik...Bin zwar noch auf der Suche nach dem perfekten Make-up, aber bin da zuversichtlich. Das Kleid ist übrigens supersüß!


  58. hahaha :)I'll be flattered with the whistle!
    thanks ... have a great week! beijooossss


  59. You pull off such a great look here. also, I love ebay! & the Chanel polish. very nice.

  60. Great outfit..:))Love your eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anna <3

  62. your hair=gorgeous! i like it like this! your looks always inspire me, and then when i go to do them, i lose patience because i have no skill when it comes to hair or makeup. although i did try the nails that one time and they messed up :-)
