White lace dresses and boyfriends

I am wearing a Tramontana dress (mint version) • Scapa flats • Louche ring • Oasis earrings


I don’t know about yours, but my boyfriend tends to run away screaming when I pull a white lace dress from the racks when shopping. I imagine he can hear the wedding bells ringing, and we may have reached our four year milestone we’re still a bit young (and in school) for that major step. I shied away from white lace for a while, but I really wanted a white lace dress anyway. The annual dance of Ks student club was coming up and I really wanted a new dress. I wore the same little black dress to my high school prom and the annual dances for the past three years. This is the dress I picked, and these rose gold cap toe flats are the ones I choose with it. We met up at the venue, as K had to help set everything up and I had gone work that day and to my huge surprise… he loved it. Boys. They’ll never really make sense to me.

The annual dance was on April 26th, but I only got a chance to show you the outfit now. In more recent history, we visited a beautiful castle ans its garden this weekend. There were supposed to be a million roses, but the bushes were awfully green. Due to our very dreary spring, the bloom period hes been delayed. No worries though, there were a lot of poppies, lilies and other pretty things blooming in the vegetable garden (of all places!). I did snap quite a lot of photos and I am surprised how well some came out! I’ll share them with you soon… on my new blog. Yes you read that right! I’m trying my hand at starting a photography blog. I’ve noticed that my photography posts and style posts are not that easy to combine, and they really do pull in a different public. I decided to separate both subjects and create a new blog for my photos. I’m currently still  thinking out the concept and designing the lay-out, but it’s coming together pretty fast. All I really need more is a name for the new photo blog. Help?

  • Such a lovely lace dress! I like it with the simple accessories 🙂 Hope you had fun at the dance! 🙂

    Sorry I can't help name your new blog, I'm useless at coming up with names! 😛

  • the dress is really pretty, but what I love even more is the jewelry you wore with it! the new blog sounds exciting, I can't wait to see it!

  • Maybe go for Photography Diaries? I don't know, something that ties into your current blog title. I'd try to continue your "brand", if that makes sense. My Dad & I finally went to that rose garden I told you about (it's in Mannheim, so like 4 1/2 hours away from München), and half of the roses had already bloomed, while the other half hadn't even started – crazy! We also got some good photos, though 🙂 I'd love to feature your photography for my "Photography Wednesdays" once you get that going – let me know! xx Johanna

  • Oeeh die ring is leuk!

  • Lol! I don't think my bf is aware enough to even notice that I'm wearing white or make any associations to weddings. I think you look very lovely!

  • Do you want to keep the ginger theme? What about The Ginger Photo Journal?

  • It does not surprise me that Kenneth loved this look. I literally gasped when I saw you. Stunning. No other word for it. And the delicate yet modern jewelry is understated and just enough to really pull this to the next level.

    I hope you had fun at the dance, even if it was a bit ago.

    Since I love both your photography posts and your outfit posts, I'm a bit bummed they will now be two separate blogs, but can understand why you want to do this, if things do feel like they gel right. Good luck finding a name 🙂

  • Oh my god. Girl. I can barely wear white without it matching my skin tone. You are so brave to do white on white on white on white on white! (Just kidding about the white on white on white on white!!) Seriously though, you look gorgeous!

  • Cute dress! Can't wait to see your new blog! 🙂

  • You look SO pretty in that dress Nikki! And the dance sounds lovely 🙂
