polkadots on baker street

polkadots on baker street outfit post title

Hello everyone,

how are you?
Well, Monday is not exactly the best day to ask this question huh?!
I'm tired and my abs hurt because of yesterday's workout. I believe this Youtube video has trained muscles in my body that I have never ever used before. Damn you, "60 minutes abs, legs and butt with Linda" (in German: Bauch, Beine, Po mit Linda, sehr effektiv)!

To brighten up this weather-wise crazy Monday (sun, rainstorm, sun, rainstorm...) I chose one of my favourite dresses, the navy/white polkadot number my mum gave me back in 2011 for my first business trip to Budapest. I added a denim shirt and the lovely aztec print wool blazer I got at the Esprit outlet after Christmas 2012 and I was ready to go. Funny how this outfit combines a piece from each of the last three years.

I admit the light fabric sneakers were not the best choice for a stormy rainy spring day, but they are supercomfy and go with lots of outfits, so I was stubborn and put them on. Luckily I spent most of today indoors.

Last but not least I would like to introduce you to my new lipstick: P2 Pure Color in "Baker Street". I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, this alone was enough to make me buy this shade. P2 is one of the cheapest brands on the German market, however I was positively surprised about the really nice creamy texture and richness in colour of this lipstick. Although it's not one of these superstay products it lasts pretty long too, survives snacks and cigarette breaks. And to be honest they have such a lovely colour palette that I bought "Oxford Street", a rich deep red, too. So, these lipsticks? Highly recommended! 

Have a nice day loves!

  1. I love your Review polka dot dress with the pretty ruffles on the front. I also love the print on your Esprit blazer. Your P2 Pure Color lipstick in "Baker Street" is pretty and so is your eye-makeup and your red hair.


  2. Oh, I like the shade too! And I often find the cheapest brands to be really creamy and less drying to my lips. I love Nivea Beaute's line for example. Anyhow, you wore canvas sneakers on a stormy day?? Talk about a fashion determination.:D Love the look, babe, that polka dot number is adorable and it suits you really well!

  3. I only just bought a polka dot dress and this is inspiring me to wear it!

  5. Super tolles Kleid und die Jacke gefällt mir auch!! Hast du wirklich 60 Minuten durchgehalten. Wow alle Achtung!! Ja ich bin auch ein riesen Sherlock Fan vorallem vom dem neuen. Ich hoffe sie zeigen endlich die neue Staffel. Den Lippenstift hab ich mir auch gekauft, nur noch nicht ausprobiert. Freut mich zu hören, dass er gut ist.
