I'm gonna keep the text short today as I've got lots to do for university. Not having courses on Monday and Friday just seems cool at first glance because it means that on the other three days my schedule is PACKED. I'm pretty beat after those days. But no complaining here, what else should one expect from the third and last year of the Bachelor's degree... My surgery is supposed to take place next week so I'm trying to be up to date with all of the current uni material for now.
About the outfit? There's nothing much to say. It's what I'm wearing for school when the weather's mild like it is today. Last week when I was wearing my Nikes though, a storm started just when I was about to head home and my feet got soaked! Thus, now I'm only wearing them after I've checked the weather forecast. Anyhow, I gotta hurry now. Have a nice day ♡

Nike Air Max Thea Premium(in black here), Zara Pants (similar here), Shirt & Bag, H&M Sweater, LeSpecs Sunnies (get them here)

Ech haalen mech kuerz haud well ech nach bessen fier d'Uni ze schaffen hun ier ech den Metten an de Cours muss. Meindes an Freides keng Coursen ze hun heescht leider dass den Recht fun den Deeg sou voll sin dass ech dono total freckt sin. Di ''frai'' Deeg hellt een dann fier doheem alles opzeschaffen, d'Coursen nozekuken an verschidden Arbechten ze schreiwen. Mee ech beschweiren mech net, ech hun et fier main letzt Joer am Bachelor net aneschters erwaard. D'nächst Woch soll ech opereiert gin, doweint well ech mech de Moment och schon iergendwei ebessen fierschaffen fier dass ech dono net zefill nohaenken waert. 
Zu mengem Outfit? Do gett et unsech net vill ze soen. Dass een typeschen Outfit deen ech fier op d'Uni undoen, bequem an einfach. D'letzt Woch hat ech meng Nikes och un, ech mengen et wor een Denschden. An just wei mier aus dem Cours geloos guffen an ech wollt heem goen ass een deckt Donnerweeder hai iwer Bréissel erof gaangen. Meng Féiss waren duerch an duerch naas! Waat hun ech also geleiert? Et kukt een als eischt d'Meteoprevisiounen ier een Sneakers undeed am Hierscht ;)
Sou fort sin ech, ech wenschen eech een schéinen Daach!♡

black always

10/5/14
First I have to apologise for the absence here! Life's been a little stressful the last couple of weeks with uni starting again and me having to go to the hospital every second day to have different tests done.

So before talking about the outfit I'm gonna update you on my health situation as I promised to. The tests did show that I need surgery. I suffer from the so called Dunbar syndrome (Wikipedia: chronic, recurrent abdominal pain related to compression of the celiac artery by the median arcuate ligament), which is rather uncommon. We still haven't fixed a date for the procedure to take place but my doctors where talking about trying to fix one at the end of the month. Even though thinking about the surgery makes me very anxious, I am so so happy that they finally found the problem. 

Back to the outfit now! I was asked by WeAreTheModels to shoot a fall outfit that brings out the best of me. Basically WeAreTheModels is a platform where you can find inspiration based on your body type. I think it's such a good way to find out, at first sight, what's looking good on you. We all know that everything looks good on the models in the adds but here you have 'real' people, with different body sizes, sharing their outfits. Why don't you have a look and see what blogger/person has the same body type as you?

I chose an all black outfit, which won't take you by surprise if you've been following my blog for a while. It is my favourite and my go to colour - always has, always will. Black is perfect to hide - or shall I say - to withdraw the focus on body parts one might not like as much as others. For me those are clearly my hips and thighs. And yes I know that I am rather skinny and, just to be clear, I am not saying that I want to lose weight - because I really don't! (I've lost over 10 pounds due to my health issues and I can't really say that I am happy about that). I'm just saying that I like those parts a little less. Being in my twenties now, I am starting to accept my body as it is, and my body just isn't skinny all over and that is ok. 
Back to the pants: not only are they black but also they're a so called ankle grazer. They don't cover the ankles which is an other trick to let your legs appear longer and maybe even a little skinnier. (Btw, I'm wearing flats here, but the effect will be doubled by wearing high heels).  Also I decided to wear my new Zara scarf with this outfit as it's not only perfect for fall - because of it's length it can be worn as a Poncho too - but also it ends a little underneath my hips. This way the focus is, once again, pulled away from them. 

Oohh my, now I've written a short story again! Congrats if you've read through it all ;) 
Happy Sunday you guys ♡

Als eischt muss ech mech entschellegen dass ech sou laang naicht gepost hun. Di lescht zwou Wochen waren relativ vollgepaackt: d'Uni ass zu Breissel rem ugang an ech misst oft hai an Letzebuerg an d'Klinik fir verschidden Tester ze maachen. Do ass mer leider net mei vill Zait/Kraaft bliwen fier den Blog. 

Ier ech lo iwert main Outfit schwetzen soen ech eech dann, wei versprach, waat Dokteren rausfonnt hun. Ech leiden ennert dem sougenanntenen Dunbar Syndrom, eng eischter seelen Krankheet dei och nawell relativ schweier ze erklären ass, mee dei mat der Haaptoder am Bauch ze din huet (⟼Definitioun op Wikipedia). Ech waert domat Enn des Mounts oder Ufank November opereiert gin. Am Moment verdrängen ech de Gedanken un dei Operatioun, well se mer dach Angscht mecht, mee dier gleeft mier guer net wei frou ech sin, dass endlech eppes fonnt gin ass!

Sou lo dann zu mengem Outfit: WeAreTheModels, eng Platform wou een direkt am Ufank ugett wei een Kierpertyp een huet, an dann sou Inspiratioun fennt dei genau op een zougeschnidden ass, huet  mech gefroot fier een Hierscht Outfit zesummen zestellen. En Outfit deen mech am beschten Liicht duerstellt, mat klengen Tipps wei ech meng 'Schwachpunkten' verdecken. Ech mengen mier hun all Deeler fun eisem Kierper dei mier flait ebessen manner gaer hun, an fier mech sen daat meng Heften an meng Uewerschenkelen. Ech wees ech sen keen Deckt, an ech well hai och lo net soen dass ech mech ze deck fannen oder oofhuelen well (Dat hun ech neemlech an der lescht mei wei genuch). Ech well einfach soen dass ech mech selwer wait fun perfekt gesinn. Mee awer och dass daat ganz ok ass! Antescht sin ech an engem Alter wou een dach awer unfaenkt sech sou ze akzepteiren wei een ass, an dann flait duerch kleng Tricker oder Kleeder eben dei Partien ze betounen dei een leiwer huet, oder eeben dei aaner, dei een manner gaer huet, net ze betounen.

Bei desem Outfit spillt meng Box do eng grouss Roll, se ass schwarz - waat schon emmer direkt gudd ass fier keen Fokus op sech ze zeihen -  an se ass net ganz laang. Meng Knechelen sen net verdeckt, an domat fannen ech gesinn d'Been direkt een Steckchen mei laang aus, an doduerch och ebessen mei denn. (Ech hun hai lo platt Schung un, mee duerch Talecksschung kann een desen Effekt nach vill mei fier sech spillen loossen). Ech hun main naien Schal aus dem Zara och an desen Outfit mat angebaut, well en net nemmen perfekt as fier lo am Hierscht - et kann een en neemlech och als Poncho undoen -  mee well en duerch seng Längt, en haellt just ennert mengen Heften op, nacheemol den Fokus fun hinnen eweg hellt. 

Lo hun ech eech rem een klengen Roman hai geschriwwen, Gleckwonsch wann der alles gelies hudd ;)  Ech wenschen eech een ganz scheinen Sonnden ♡

one day at a time

9/23/14
Today I couldn't get myself to wear anything other than this huge oversized jumper from Zara and my beloved Converse. This morning I've had the first test in the hospital regarding the stomach problems I've told you about (here). Now I have to wait for the results to get in before having the second test on Thursday. It isn't a pleasant week for me, so I hope it'll pass fast! I'm gonna leave you with the pictures, which we took at around sunset, as I have some Uni catching up to do. 

Converse, Topshop skinny Trousers (similar here), oversized knitted Zara jumper (similar here), Primark bag and Michael Kors sunnies (similar here)
