Sparkle and lace + a link-up!

How's January treating you so far? I don't know about you, but it's usually not my favourite month (meaning I hate it). This year though, with exploring our new neighbourhood, the almost daily sunshine and a new hobby, I actually like it!  
What I used to do in previous years was treat myself to something in January to brighten up this dreary month. Just in case, I did the same thing this year haha!

I saw Naomi from Love Taza wear this incredible pair of sparkly shoes, and on a whim, I ordered them. They are a wee bit too big, but nothing that a bit of cotton-wool wedged into the toes can't fix. Other than that, I love them! As if mother nature knew that I wanted to wear them out, she warmed up considerably, and the snow is melting fast. Thanks, girl! 

Another reason why I wanted to wear them today is that I am co-hosting Jennie's popular fashion link-up Fabulous Friday. I have been linking up for close to two years, and I was honoured when she invited me to be a co-host this week. This special occasion deserves some extra sparkle!

I hope January isn't treating you too badly either!

My favourite look from last week's Fabulous Friday link-up is Ruth's casual boho-chic outfit. I'm a sucker for stripes, and I will always have a soft spot for flared jeans. Add to that her adorable hair, and we have a winner!

  1. First of all, thank you for co-hosting with me this week, Miriam! I am also thrilled we both chose to feature a bit of glam and sparkle in our looks this week, as well a touch of leather. Great minds, you know. :) I always enjoy a bit of feminine mixed with edgy.

    1. Same here! Thanks again for inviting me to co-host, I had a blast! You have built a beautiful, strong community with your blog!

  2. Dear Miriam, you look amazing in this cute outfit. These shoes are fabulous.

    1. Thank you Tina! There isn't a thing like too much sparkle, right? ;-)
      Thanks so much for stopping by, it's always nice to meet a fellow German and hat-lover!

  3. Love your jacket and pretty locale for pictures! Thanks for co-hosting!

    1. You are so sweet, thank you Amy! It was my pleasure.
      And I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be able to wear "normal" clothes again. It was so cold here for the last 2 months, all we did was wear as many layers as possible to stay warm. Right now we're getting a much-needed break, and it's lovely!

  4. I'm not a fan of January either, but at least spring isn't too far off now. I love your sparkly shoes!

    1. Thank you!
      The days are already getting longer again, which always makes me think of spring.
      Have a wonderful week!

  5. Oh my gosh, Miriam! This is such an amazing look! I love the lace and sparkles combined with the leather and black tights. This is so right up my alley! You look amazing. Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge.


    1. Thank you Shelbee! I thought your critter story was hilarious - mortifying, but very funny. I hope your animal misadventures have come to an end for now, and you get a much-deserved break from mice!


Thanks for commenting! I always reply to comments here, so check back in a day or two!
