How to wear and style pineapple print

On July 5th in 2015, my very first blogpost went online on It was about a pink retro dress with pineapple print. 🙂 Since then, 1,217 more blogposts were published and I still love blogging as much as I did back then. My photos got sharper, and my blogdesign more modern. My style, though, remained almost the same. It maybe got a bit more grown up, but I still enjoy wearing retro dresses and circle skirts. And so I even still own the dress from my first blogpost. At the beginning of the year, I tought about selling it, but in the end, I decided it is a keeper. I no longer wear it in everyday life, but the pink pineapple dress is still faithful companion for my summer vacation. And since I love pineapple print that much, I decided my birthday blogpost should be about exactly this print.

A little funfact: I think pineapples look absolutely amazing! But I don’t like to eat them, they simply do not tast, in my opinion – at least as long as they are not part of a cocktail. 😉
