If you look carefully, this is a different mask from the first one (see here). Bought as a pair from Namibia, both needed to be on the blog! Props such as masks are a fantastic way to add an element of fun or interest to a photo shoot.

 Twin Set lace skirt

This time I’ve styled the mask with an orange lace skirt from the German label – Twin Set. I’m slowly growing a nice collection of beautiful pieces from this label with each visit to Germany. There’s this gorgeous little boutique which I’m just in love with, nestled in the main shopping strip of this small town called Marktredwitz. It’s quite surprising to see such well dressed women in what is considered a ‘country town’ here in Germany (population of 16,000). A small shopping centre (Frey) and a handful of fine boutiques keep the women of Marktredwitz smartly dressed.

Due to the unpredictable May weather, I’ve swapped from a summer dress on one day and a leather jacket the next. Packing for Germany was a little tricky this time round. Thank goodness I have a mother-in-law with a nice wardrobe! This Lloyd leather jacket is from her collection. Leather and lace is a fabulous combination of textures which adds a super feminine touch to your winter style.

Have a look at my second outfit in the forest: Be brave – be yourself.
