SHOOTING: sports apparel from & H&M in the black forest.

[en] hi peeps! the depicted natural gem is only 20 minutes away from my flat. it's a beauty spot which lets me get away from it all for a little while.
it's perfect for a little walk but also to collect mushrooms and chestnuts in fall and wood garlic in spring.

the area shown on the photographs in todays post belongs to the hunting lodge forest and is located between baden-baden and sinzheim.

i really feel privileged to live near an UNESCO biosphere reserve – not least because i live in a region where others take a staycation.

do you live nearby a national park or a natural beauty spot which helps you to take some time out?

SHOOTING: the perfect horse racing look - black broad-brimmed occasion hat & white cocktail dress.

[en] baden-baden can be regarded as the german horse racing metropolis and also in matters of pomp and circumstance it would in no way be inferior to the prestigious couterpart in ascot.
it is needless to say that this social event which peaks within the grand final week at the beginning of september is celebrated in the best way possible. highly rewarded horses and jockeys as well as haute couture hat creations worn by beautiful ladies are in the centre of attention.

many ladies shop their flamboyant hat couture at olivier maugé's flagship store in baden-baden.

it is very likely that i will wear today's outfit at the sales & racing festival which will take place during the 20th and the 22nd of october 2017.

my mum bequeathed me with the broad-brimmed hat i'm wearing in today's post. isn't it a true black beauty? i'm especially in love with the hatband and the decorative ribbon detail made of rich, silky-matt velvet – one of my favourite fabrics!

the white cocktail dress literally was a perfect catch. i have bought it second hand via – one of my favourite fashion destinations when it comes to sustainable shopping. i especially love the modern interpretation of its halter-neck detail.
i wanted the shoes to be puristic and not too garish and thus combined my black & white combo with a pair of nude coloured high heels.

nevertheless a bright and colourful colour splash oughtn'd be missing and thus i combined my outfit with a red bag in shape of a book.

the races in 2018 are likely to take place in mai, august/september and october.

what do you think about my horse racing look?
