Sunday Social - Time To Style

Sunday Social

It's been an exciting weekend; I've been MIA for two days, playing D&D with the guys Friday night and being totally whiped after hiking the 8 miles on a local trail hitting all 5 breweries (all that on a broken toe) with my colleagues. Spent today playing with the girls and taking a good long nap this afternoon, needed it after getting up with Violet at 6:30.

To wrap up the weekend, I'm once again linking up with Ashley for Sunday Social. Today it's all about shopping and style:

1. What is your favorite store to shop in?
I loved the GAP in the States. Here in Germany I mostly shop H&M and s'Oliver.

2. If you could afford anything and everything, which designer brand would you covet?
That's a difficult one, since I mostly take the practical approach to fashion (i.e. not look at any fashion magazines). Maybe Prada? Or definitely Vivian Westwood, she's just WOW! But then again, I might not have the guts to wear her designs..

3. What is your must have closet staple?
I'm not a fashion expert, but I think a well-fitting LBD is something every woman should have.

4. What is your favorite kind of shoes? 
Ballet flats!!
my current favorites!

5. What is the best clothing deal you've ever gotten? (sale or amazing find)
The closet swap I've done with my friend! We both picked cloths from our closets we didn't wear any more and got a good chunk of new clothes for free. Got my LBD out of it!!!

6. What is a style you'd love to try?
Again, not sure. It happens to me a lot that I see women on the street whose style I love, but it never seems to suit me. One day, I'll just suck it up and get a personal styling done, I start getting really sick of myself  ;-)

Have a good start in a new week, everyone!


  1. ooooo...I like this hop. Must add it to my list.
    I, too, would have a tough time picking a designer if money was no option. I'm not even sure who's popular, lol. And I really like that closet swap idea. Might have to see if I can persuade my sister to do that.
    p.s. love your Friday night! ;)

    1. IT's definitely a fun hop ;-) D&D night is always something I'm looking forward, it's a fun round!

  2. Lovely post!

    I've never shopped at GAP but I do love me some H&M! They're going from strength to strength lately! And it's purse friendly!



    1. Thanks for stopping by, Halima! I love H&M for its flats, they are awesome!

  3. Well I definitely don't know anything about fashion! lol

    I can, however, comment on how cool it is you are hitting up some D&D! Also, I'm surprised (which I think I expressed previously) you managed so well on your broken toe. That is pretty impressive :-) I hope it heals fast!

    1. Honestly, I'm far from a fashionista. I'm just starting to learn a little, for the longest time, my wardrobe was black with a few jeans. My goal was to be able to dress myself in the dark, and it worked :-)

      We love our D&D-nights, time to relax from work and a hobby the hubby and I enjoy together.

      Oh, the toe is doing fine, the doc did a great job taping it up, I'm literally pain-free at the moment.
