Pink | Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf Theatre Museum at sunset.

Pink sunsets in the pink city. Düsseldorf is a wonder of colourful delights, from the rainbow buildings, delicious food and friendly people we felt right at home.

 

packing only hand luggage is sometimes a nightmare when assembling outfits for a week. A lot of re-wearing happened during this Düsseldorf adventure. Trying to be creative in what I wear every day. To create something different proved a real challenge. Pairing these pink glittery SK8-HI Vans with the pink Theatre Museum was a highlight. As I love aesthetics and matching is my favourite thing. Ask Hayden.

Christmas in Bournemouth wearing Seina

Spending a beautiful day with H after a stressful week. University is getting on top of me so I’m really appreciating the days where I just spend time doing nothing. Doing nothing, wearing cosy Christmas outfits. I’ve been looking for a grey pearled jumper for about a year. I saw a cute one in the Zara in Edinburgh but for some silly reason just didn’t get it. I saw this jumper on an Instagram sponsored story and just impulsively bought it. While looked amazing and oversized on the model. It looks like a cropped jumper on me, which I’m kind ok with. From Seina. Paired with button fronted trousers that are comfy and soft with a paper bag waist. Teamed with my fave block heeled court shoes and a Joanna Hall bag mum gave me because she’s having a bag purge.

Coca Cola and Lace

I’ve lived in England almost all my life and have yet to visit so many places that are on my doorstep. Lepe Country Park is on that list. A family picnic for my dad’s birthday took myself and Hayden there. The weather started out poorly, driving through the New Forest in the lashing rain was like driving in a horror movie. But the sun came out as we reached our destination. The wind, however, didn’t leave us for the whole trip.

Wanting to wear something a little more special then usual windy beach walk wear. In my Edwardian style lace top under a Coca Cola jumper the lace popping out of the collar looks so much more feminine, which I prefer. White trainers to match my lace and rainbow hoop earrings to finish.

Tartan Trousers

Do you ever buy pieces and hope they stay in your life for ages and feel slightly sad as soon as you get them because you know other trousers just won’t cut it anymore?  Jeans are ruined for me now. These New Look tartan trousers are the one. They are super comfy, look like smart trousers, are elasticised at the back, feel like pyjamas, still not decided if they actually are or not. Worn with a Cola jumper to keep the comfort level high. Heels to make an effort and red accessories.

Rugby Jumper

Taken after I’d eaten curry and got a refund on my ice-cream as there was plastic in it ( i found the plastic in my mouth)  But I love this jumper, reminds me of a rugby shirt. The detailing of the little speckles add more interest into the look.H said I looked a little bit like Denise the Menace. All compliments are greatly received. Paired with pale mom jeans and flatworm DKNY trainers.

Gap Summer Basics

I’ve been really inspired by Lizzy from Shot From the Street, her photography, style, writing, posing etc is really unique and her work ethic has really motivated me to try new things within The Curly Haired Girl. Now that the lounge is pink and the furniture is back the location is much more interesting. The muted colours of my easy outfit against the bubblegum pink and yellow sofa create such a great contrast I had a lot of fun working out how to create interesting photos for this post.

Also, evening sun is my favourite thing to lie in, I’m sure I was a cat in a previous life.

Needed to replenish my basics and wondered around the high street headed to Gap because I’m really into the quality and their pricing reflects the quality which I can stand by. This super fine weave/knit top with tucked sleeves is a really relaxed comfortable piece, that can be put into so many different looks. With skinny jeans, with a shirt…

Jumpsuit on the Steps

This Next jumpsuit is from last year, do you remember this post? here. I’ve not really worn it since but wasn’t ready to part with it. I paired it with red accessories and a blazer to move it away from a wedding guest look.

Red Pop

Those ladies you see who wear the comfy ‘safe’ black leather pumps, are the real winners in life. I NEEDED  new shoes for work and looked all over the high street. I found nothing, I went into Marks & Sparks on the off chance these would be a pair of shoes for me. There were so many pairs I’d wear as trend pieces. These are the best shoes ever.

This little red number is the replacement bag for my Sandra Rhodes bag that got destroyed at Slam Dunk. A bright red Yumi shoulder bag that fits everything perfectly without being a duffle bag. The gold detailing is very different from what I normally go for but am obsessed with it.

The simplest of looks are sometimes the best. Starting a mini collection of looks that are smaller posts. Focusing more on two photos of the look and the details less nattering and gibbering on, I’ll save that for larger posts.

Mom Jeans and Nasty Gal

I dress for myself and if you aren’t you are missing out. Savour the bridesmaid’s dress /uniform etc that has to be worn. After that, there is really no excuse. Being comfortable in what you are wearing will make you more confident. I love dressing in what I like, over what I should wear.
‘I don’t think you should wear that’ translates to me ‘you should wear that right now, go change’.
I love tucking t-shirts into jeans, my body shape traditionally would have meant that I should try and conceal my bod at all times. F’ that!! I love this Nasty Gal shirt and wanted to show off my jeans, so tucked in it is. I feel confident and am living for it. ( anyone else watching RuPaul season 9?)
