...who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
~Leonardo Da Vinci 1452-1519
Today's look features a simple, grey jersey dress. A very casual material (think sweatshirt) but a very sophisticated, fitted silhouette.
The neutral dress is complimented by a pop of pink and girly accessories. White patent leather platform sandals give the look a little edge, and voila...you got a great city look! :)
We took pictures on a beautiful, bright, sunny day in Downtown Franfkurt. The street you see in most pictures was right in the Middle between the old town and the financial disctrict, yet it was so tranquil and quiet, you really get a small town feel, despite all the big buildings around you.

This bag was my newest addition for summer. I really love the look of it and I am a fan of neon colors, but sadly the bag had issues and I exchanged it for another one, which also had issues. So now I am thinking about exchanging for another color since it seems the neon colors are prone to chipping...:(
I had to alter the dress quite a bit, especially the back. I took in the dress at the waist and the back, creating visible seams. I think the seams actually look quite nice.
Jewelry and Make Up:
Even though the necklace isn't the exact color as the bag, I think it still compliments it.
Because of the bag and necklace being pretty girly, I kept the rest quite simple.
This is an almost no Make Up look. I wore peach lip tint (same color as the necklace), but nothing else.
All of my Jewelry is gold tone. As you can see my hair was combed before we took photos in the wind ;)
Btw. my hair isn't layered. The short bits etc. are grown out bangs but some are also caused by hair loss and regrowth episodes. You can read more about it on my other blog! Sorry for the mess :/
This bracelet actually resembles viking jewelry. Little beaded bracelets like that were quite common :)
The shoes are comfortable, and in my opinion look really unique!

The "reality" ;) The little guy trying to sabotage my shoot.
We forgot his helmet that day and did not notice until later :((. The helmet isn't required by law, but still..I prefer he wears it.
Commerzbank Tower [co-mertz-bunk-tower] (one of the tallest in the world and the tallest in Europe), Japan Tower [ya-pan tower], and the tall glass tower is the "Main Tower" [mine-tower]

Hope you enjoyed the scenic pictures and let me know what you think! :)
