13 In OUTFIT

Outfit: Birthday Traditions

Outfit: &other Stories dress, Högl boots, Chanel Wallet on Chain | you rock my life

When I was a little girl, my Mom always bought me a „special outfit“ for my birthday. Whether it was a pretty dress, a cool new jacket, or a new pair of jeans… I was allowed to choose whatever I liked. I still remember some of those „birthday“ outfits as if it was yesterday… and I also remember the excitement I had about my new clothes. You’ll probably laugh out loud now, but I even still have some of these clothes… Not because I still wear them of course (wouldn’t fit at all, who am I kidding) but just because it would break my heart to throw them away because so many beautiful memories are connected to them.

Long story short, now – 27 years later – I’m still keeping this tradition alive and always chose a special piece of clothing for my birthday. Last year I treated myself with the Selfportrait Azalea dress, and this year a little red number from & other stories stole my heart the minute I saw it featured in their newsletter (note to self: newsletters are dangerous).

Since my birthday fell on a super cold and rainy day this year, and because Patrick surprised me with a day at the spa, I didn’t actually get to wear the dress for my birthday. Nevertheless, I got to wear it for many occasions since. Although it’s rather chic and nothing you’d pick as something you’d wear on normal office days or to run some errands, I still think it’s very versatile and definitely suitable for daily use. Toned down with black boots and a leather jacket, it makes the perfect outfit for ordinary days, as well as to go out for dinner or to an event.

What I love most about dresses like these is that it only takes one piece to be dressed and to look put together. That’s why it was also in my suitcase when I went to Barcelona. It doesn’t need ironing, it’s versatile, and it doesn’t take up much space: Three attributes that make this dress a perfect travel companion.

      haha yes, random childhood fact 🙂 The black Benetton Duffle coat was actually one of those birthday treats once… I’m sure you remember that one!
      And yes to killer heels – just have to finally get some ( / decide for some)!!

    Wunderschön – du siehst einfach traumhaft aus. Die Tasche passt perfekt zum Kleid.
    Darf ich dich fragen, welche Größe du in dem Kleid trägst?

    Danke dir und LG
