loosing control

Hey guys 

nice that you are back here or that you found my blog :) 
I know it's been a while but now my new post is here yay. 
You probably have heard the quote from Karl Lagerfeld, who said that the one who wears sweatpants has lost control of his/her life
So I think this would mean that my life is not under control anymore since I am wearing sweatpants, and not only at home in the evenings but also to university and to go shopping and all that kind of occasions haha. But I have to say that I totally feel comfortable and not uncontrolled at all :D! These pants were a real find, because I was in the city shopping with two friends of mine and they both had found something and were about to go to the checkout but I was still kind of looking around. And then all of the sudden these sweatpants popped into my sight and I had to get them :). I was a little skeptical because I didn't try them on and they looked huge but back at home I was very happy how the looked on me :) 
I like to pair them with a more chick top because I don't want the outfit to look too relaxed and sporty you know. For the shoes I like to go either with my black converse or my pair of high heels so I took photos of both options. 
I would love to know what you think of this outfit and if you have a blog and you have ever posted an outfit with sweatpants I would love if you posted the link in the comments so that I can go check it out :) 
I wish you a wonderful rest of the day and a happy week!! 

Love, Karla Johanna

At sunset


how are you? I hope you are doing fine :) We have here the best weather one could imagine. I have gotten into spring mood and of course I had to get some tulips for my apartment and I also cleaned my closet. Oh boy... it was so overloaded with all these things I never wear and everything was a big mess. But now that I put away about a third of all the things it is easy again to see what I actually like to wear :) 
The new semester has started and some how it is already a lot, after only three days of courses. Uff... 
But I have here an outfit I wanted to share with you that includes my favorite jeans. They are high waisted, which I never thought would look good on me until a friend convinced me to try them on. And I actually really like them :) and although I know that they might even look better on other girls, I like to wear them. I paired them with a striped cropped button up shirt from H&M which is also fairly new in my closet. 

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like high waisted jeans or do you think they are a thing of the 80s?

Happy Friday

Hello there, 

are you doing well? I mean it is Friday, is there anyone who doesn't feel well on a Fridays? Haha. Just today I came to realize again how awesome Fridays are :) but unfortunately this was my last one before my new semester. Oh and about that... I am going to be in the 4th semester.... ooh my god! Unbelievable. Time passes by so fast that I just can't believe it. It feels like only half a year ago I applied to the pilot training I initially wanted to do (a little fun fact here about me hehe). But anyways, I hope that next semester will pass by fast because I have heard it is not a piece of cake and I think after that there will be something big waiting for me :) like an internship... 
But anyways, my todays outfit: I was wearing my favorite regular, somehow super boring black jeans. I added my white print T-shirt  and my classic blazer which I already wore in my last post. I somehow like to wear it at the moment very much :) And as a little fun something I put on my base cap. So I am well aware that not everyone likes them and especially not on me, but I still think it's fun to wear one and I like it :) So I am wearing it! 
I think this outfit is sporty but still with a touch of chicness because of the blazer.

How do you like this outfit? Do you generally like base caps or do you think they are a no go?

back as batman

Hey there

How are you doing? I have been away from blogging for the longest time ever. In the past three months I celebrated christmas, studied for all my exams (of which I passt all, yaay), worked again, was two weeks on vacation, sat in silence for one week without talking and internet and all that good stuff and met with some good old friends :). So much happened and somehow just blogging didn't seem to fit in that time but now I am full of energy again for that so I am very excited to do this post today. 
In this outfit I am wearing my favorite shirt at the time. It is long, baggy and grey which all are very good criteria by themselves but to top it off it has this yellow batman print on it! Not that I am much into batman or anything but this just seemed to me to be a fun pop of color and I like graphic shirts anyways. So as I walked by this in the H&M store I just had to take it with me :) 
I combined it with my classic black blazer and a pair of faux leather pants. The shoes are also really cool they are like black lace shoes but with silver studs on them. Too bad I didn't take a close-up picture of them but maybe you get the idea :) and I guess since I really like them I will be wearing them in some more outfit pictures in the future so I'll make sure to post a close-up then. 
So that's it for today and I hope you like the pictures. I would be really happy and would appreciate it much to read your opinion on this outfit and I hope you will be checking out my blog again more frequently because there will be coming more posts from now on :)

leather bermudas


yaaay I can't tell you how happy I am to have a new outfit post up today :) The past week was so crapy because first my photographer aka my Boyfriend got sick and then I did. So one thing more which hindered me to take pictures. 
But this was my outfit today. And it combines a few new things that I got recently. First are the boots and the bermudas which I both got from Zara, and then also the golden statement necklace I found at Forever21. I loove all these three items so much :) the boots are perfect, comfortable, chic but still a little bit edgy, and the faux leather of the shorts is so so soft. The necklace is kind of a new thing for me, because although I do have a few statement necklaces I just never seem to wear them. But with this it's different, since I got it I have been wearing it all the time (except when I was sick in bed haha). So this is my outfit and I really feel comfortable wearing it :) Oh and can you see the beautiful sun shine? This week is supposed to be continuing like that and it's almost at 10 degrees. So it kind of feels like being in spain or somewhere where it's not -10° in December. 
So I hope you are all doing well and feeling the christmas vibes. I am baking some Macaroons at the moment and let me tell you... they are a pain in the butt!! I hope they will turn out good but still not so sure about that. 
Tell me what you think of my new items and my outfit :) I wish you all a nice week!

My past weekend with Christmas feelings

Hey there

yes, I am still alive :) But it's getting harder to take good pictures outside, since it's very cold and it gets dark really early, so when I am back home from the uni there is no way I can go out into the dark to take pictures. So please excuse the lack of outfit posts lately. 
Last weekend I was in my home city and I enjoyed some good food and started to get some christmasy feelings. Here are some pictures I wanted to share with you. 

First things first :) In Düsseldorf I went to Starbucks, since I don't have one near here where I live. 

Afterwards I went to see the new Breuninger in Düsseldorf. They really have a great selection of shoes and cosmetics :) 

And of course I had to put on my new Mickey christmas socks and my new chill pants both from Primark. 

My mom wanted to try new quick and easy recipes for apple pies, since we have our own apple tree which gives us a lot of good apples. 

On Sunday we went to have a really good brunch :) I love having a brunch on Sunday mornings. 

I found this super cute christmas decoration in a flower shop which was completely transformed into a christmas wonderland :) 

They had these cute little fairylights all over the store. It really looked like a magical forest. 

And I spotted this cute owl family which I would have loved to take home with me, but I already had chosen many other cute pieces and my apartment it not that big :D 

On Monday I spent a few hours in Cologne before driving home, so I decided to have a good break at Starbucks.

And lastly my super sweet and delicious donut from Dunkin Donuts :) I have ben loving Donuts lately so this was a must. 

I hope you liked these pictures and wish you all a nice rest of the week. Soon there will be more outfit posts again :) 

Love, Karla Johanna

navy blue with gray


I got this blue coat when I was in Munich at Zara. It was on sale, and since I didn't have any blue more on the chic side coat, I thought why not take it. I like to pair it with gray or camel and some blue jeans. So this is one of the outfits I came up with for wearing it :) The grey knit sweater is actually also new, I got it the same day at COS. I think it is just a perfect woolen sweater that is good quality and keeps me warm these cold days :) 
We took these pictures some days ago, and it really was a mess. We took as many pictures as usual, but only these three were usable because all the other ones were shaken or I looked angry :D. So I am sorry that the pictures are not perfect but I think you can get the idea of my outfit! 
I hope you like this look and let me know what you think of my two new items in my closet :) I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week!
