• {Fashion Monday} Hamburg weekend outfit

    I was in Hamburg last weekend and had the best time ever. It was nice to be in a company of friends new and old. The best part was the weather in Hamburg was nothing like our British weather so it was a huge plus and a mood booster for those of us who are deprived of the good warm summer weather.

    Before leaving for Hamburg last Friday I made sure to check the weather and see if I would be packing for British weather or for more warmer weather and I was delighted to see that Hamburg would be heating it up in the mid 20’s. With that mind I knew the staple items to pack would be pencil skirts ( see this post here), shorts and lose tops. Obviously with the sunny weather it calls for us to pull out our best sunnies so I was eager to show off my new sunnies from The Glasses shop who were kind enough to send me a pair. As I have always mentioned on this blog, when I am putting outfits together I don’t usually go with the weather as I am a summer baby and prefer to put together summer outfits than any other season. If I had a choice I would live in my shorts and skirts. I love dresses like the next person but because of my body type, I prefer to show off my long legs and hiding my mid sections and wearing short skirts and shorts helps me achieve that.

    Tip 1: if you have long legs but not a favourable mid section (like me) then wear a loose top with the shorted shorts in town. The top should reach the ends of your shorts.

    Tip 2: Wear a bodysuit if your mid section is smooth (no layers) with shorts to give the desired block look.

    Day 1: I wore black short shorts with a lose top and added some shades from The Glasses Shop. For shoes I wore sandals I saw HERE the switched to flip flops for comfort as it was too hot to stay in sandals.
    Day 2: In Hamburg I opted to wear a mini skirt with a plain top and some cute flats. This was a simple and comfortable look, it catered for my needs and matched with the weather without being too overly dressed.

    I feel with warm weather it is best to use minimal accessories as possible so for both looks I either added studs and a watch or just studs as I love wearing some sort of earrings.

    I have a couple more outfits I donned whilst in Hamburg (including the green and blue above), the hot weather called for more outfit changes than I anticipated so much that I had to pick up a couple more items from local German stores in Hamburg. I will try and do a haul post soon to show off what I got.

      How nice that you had such great weather! My favourite season for dressing is Autumn, but there’s something liberating about the minimalism of summer clothing AND it doesn’t take up much space in your suitcase! 😉

      • June 8, 2016 / 2:08 pm

        That’s so true about autumn but I am a summer baby so I prefer summer all in all

        Thanks Dannii
