Outfit Recap May 2016

outfit recap may 2016 with denim midi dressMay was a weird month – for me at least. And an incredibly slow one with a motivational low right about the time when the weather started to really feel like summer here in Berlin.

Productivity came to a complete halt when I contracted a mean flu and more or less spent two weeks straight in bed. Even reading or instagramming seemed too much and made me extremely tired so I went on a little unplanned social media break. Therefore, I only managed to bring you three outfit posts in May. All of these looks were on the casual side and had a decidedly urban backdrop. Denim featured heavily in my daily wear this month and I showed you my new retro midi dress. I even tried sneakers with a dress which was a huge first for me. What ultimately saved my posting schedule last month were the interviews I had prepared with the lovely Jennifer of feminin & modisch. I immensely enjoyed this cooperation.

Outlook: I have quite a bit in store for June as I’m celebrating an anniversary and will be hosting my first giveaway! The other project I have been wanting to start for a while now is a shopping ban. I feel that I have been spending far too much lately and need to take stock of what I already have in my (just slightly overcrowded) closet. So a few month’s shopping ban is in order for me soon…I will let you know how it goes with all the ups and downs.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Ah, being ill is so frustrating, because even when you want to be productive, you just can’t handle it – and then by the time you get better, you can be in a weird mindset and not quite up to doing the things you usually would.
    For me, the weird transitional weather in Europe right now is perfect for denim!

    Was für ein süßes Hündchen (ich liebe diese Tiere!). Ich finde deine Outfits richtig schön! :)
    Liebe Grüße,

    • caliope

      Aww, freut mich sehr, dass du auch Hunde magst. Ganz lieben Dank!

  23. Marie

    Beautiful looks !

  24. Chrissie

    Ich mag alle drei Outfits von dir sehr, vor allem die Kombi von Kleid und Sneaker ist dir wunderbar gelungen. Und dein Hund ist ja mal sowas von goldig, da kann ich verstehen, warum du Hachiko nicht gucken magst – ich fand es selbst als Katzenbesitzer schwierig den zu gucken.
    Liebe Grüße, Chrissie.

  25. Ela

    Dein Mai war ja wieder 100% nach meinem Geschmack und ich gucke schon öfter mal Jeanskleider an und du bist schuld ;-)
    Liebe grüße Ela

  27. Ramona

    I actually would love to put myself on a shopping ban as well but then again… O_O i doubt i could do that! Good luck for that! And hoping no more colds for you this year!

    • caliope

      Thank you, I sure hope so too :) Yes, I plan to start the shopping ban next month…but it will be hard x

  28. Natassia Crystal

    Glad that you are feeling better! I’m sure that from a certain point of view.. having a little social media break is quite healthy for the soul! :)

    Three lovely outfits! :)

    The best one was trench with the adidas. Comfortable daily look but very nice style.
