Saying Goodbye to Summer

So far this year has been flying by very quickly. I also feel that summer has been just a fleeting guest this year, at least in Northern Germany. Somehow it is sad that the cheerful and bright season only lasted for such a short time. I didn’t really feel summery to be honest. Thus, I am still dreaming of sunnier days…

What could be more suitable than to express this fleeting sensation with a series of black and white pictures? These picures were taken at the Eilbekkanal in Hamburg.

I am wearing here the Amanda pink striped swing dress by Dolly and Dotty. I love this 100% cotton dress since it is very comfortable to wear. What is more, it comes with a matching red belt! I am quite a big fan of Dolly and Dotty’s dresses. Perhaps you remember my previous post about how to style a sleeveless dress?

I like to combine this dress with my cream coloured cable knit cardigan by Voodoo Vixen. To me this is the perfect 50s style outfit!

Would you agree that B&W pictures are more expressive that colour photography? I think so definitely. I feel there is some kind of magic to Black and White. What is more, it is more retro in any case!

Moments of mine

I do believe that every picture captures a special moment. Hence, all you see here are moments of mine! Sometimes I wish I had more opportunities to take good professional pictures more casually ‘on the go’. It is more comfortable though to have someone take your pics.

These days, I do get melancholic wishing I could somehow go back in time and do things differently. Where would I be had I taken another way? What if I had discovered vintage style and my passions earlier?

All in all, I seem to lose my way from time to time straying in different directions. Hence, I haven’t really written here consistently over the past two months which definitely has to change again! But tell me, how do you feel about black and white style and vintage fashion?
