Shirt, cardigan & hat: h&m
Earrings & sparkling ring: sixx

What I Wore: A Spring Outfit with mydearlove

This time, it's a really special outfit post, because it's for a collaboration with the wonderful indie label mydearlove. Anke & Moni design and create the most wonderful and magical clothes and I got choose something for my own wardrobe, yippie! :)

Spring is slowly coming and although it still is really fresh outside, I got to wear my pretty pair of dungarees for the first time and my friend Alexander Rentsch was so kind to take these photos of my outfit. If you need a photographer in Berlin, hop over and check out his fantastic work! :)
Because I love white shirts with lovely prints, I've chosen this "Do what you love Mydear" shirt.
One shirt is for me, one of you can win the other (more information at the end of this blogpost :)).
The most important piece of this outfit is the wonderful pair of denim dungarees which I got in the long version (available as shorts in Anke's and Moni's shop). For me this was quite a challenge, because wearing a pair of dungarees means stepping out of my comfort zone and natural clothing style. :)
The dungarees have great pockets and a pretty bib, embellished with a white zig zag ribbon.
To make this outfit look even more casual, I decided to wear my beloved black hat which I got last year.
Those dungarees are so comfy! I think they aren't only nice for a casual everyday life outfit, but would also be great for travelling.
There's even a front pocket, so pretty.
Yippie, happy girl! :) I love cooperations with indie brands and with promoting handmade products, this is so much fun! And mydearlove made the dungarees for my individual measurements, what a pleasure. We've already been following each other for a while, so the pleasure for me is even bigger. :)

Haha, and please don't laugh at me: I chose the yellow cardigan for a fresh spring style and when then looking at the photos afterwards, I recognized that my outfit slightly reminds of a Minion. :D But nevermind, Minions are awesome and some of the happiest creatures ever, so why not! :)

Printic does not only print normal photos, you can also order books, posters or calendars. My fave are the normal polaroid photos which give my memories an extra special touch.

You can easily choose your photos with the Printic smartphone app and you can't only print out Instagram photos, but also photos from Facebook or directly from your smartphone's harddrive.
