Finally managed to update the blog! By now I have actually been home for quite some time and am currently in Moscow. 
I have to say during my road-trip this summer there was just so much happening and I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience and not worry about taking outfit pictures and uploading them every day. 
Also when I actually came back from the US I had some troubles with my laptop and I still haven't managed to upload all the pictures we took.
Here is an outfit I wore in Chicago to go to dinner and a jazz club, it was actually quite cold, but I still decided to go for a skirt, because to me summer is a feeling and not something dictated by the weather, also we spent most of the evening inside. For fall I would top this look with a chic cape like this one by Temperely (on sale)ts, saks, nk

Off to New York

unbenannt (2 von 4).jpg unbenannt (3 von 4).jpg unbenannt (1 von 4).jpg unbenannt (4 von 4).jpg unbenannt (1 von 1).jpg

What I wore: Iris&Ink Shorts, H&M Blouse, Zara Blazer, Asos Heels, Miu Miu Bag, (similar SDJ H, FF)

Rebecca Minkoff Bracelet, Topshop Rings, Essie Status Symbol 


Actually I am already in New York, but I totally forgot to publish the draft for this post in the morning. I don't know how often I will be able to update the blog while I am in the US, so for more frequent updates follow my Instagram here

I love those shorts, another great purchase I made this season. I am trying to incorporate more and more things into my wardrobe that are wearable and I can at least think of five different ways to combine it with something already in my closet. I am working towards a more edited wardrobe, because I can't stand it to look at a full closet each morning and still having nothing to wear. What are your tricks to avoid buyer's remorse?

Casual Chambray

unbenannt (4 von 5).jpg unbenannt (3 von 5).jpg unbenannt (5 von 5).jpg unbenannt (2 von 5).jpg

What I wore: Zara Skort, Topshop Denim Shirt, Isabel Marant Sandals, Alexander Wang Bag, Margiela Rings, Alexander McQueen Bracelet, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Gorjana Necklace, joseph, BF , mrp, sb

 A casual look from a few days ago. When the weather is this hot, I really go for comfort over dressing up. This Zara skort has proven to be one of the best purchases I've made this season. It is so versatile and comfortable, I just love pairing it with different things from my closet.
 On another note, in less than a week I will start my American Roadtrip and I couldn't be more excited. Two friends and I will tour the country for a month, visiting different cities like Chicago or Miami. My first stop will be New York, I've only been once and am so excited to go back and explore the city a little more. I would really appreciate it, if you would give me a few tips on what places to check out! Have a lovely weekend:) d

Hot Pink

July 8, 2013

unbenannt (1 von 4).jpg unbenannt (4 von 4).jpg unbenannt (3 von 4).jpg unbenannt (2 von 4).jpg

What I wore: Miu Miu Dress, Zara Sandals (on sale), Alexander Wang Bag, Ray Ban Sunglasses, Gorjana Necklace, other jewelry is from different vacations, Essie Status Symbol Nailpolish, Dior Lucky Lipstick (the perfect pink color)

Happy Monday babes! I hope you have great plans for this new week. I am still finishing up some work for uni, but hopefully I'll be done soon! 
In the summer, if it gets really hot, my go to pieces are definitely dresses. I wear them almost everyday, just because they are so easy and comfortable, perfect for heat waves. So my usual style changes a little bit from season to season, aside from trends, I tend to prefer girly and feminine pieces in the summer, whereas in the colder months I love a strong, architectural and more elegant design. Does your style change from season to season?

With that said, I live in this dress in the summer months. The color is just so fun and the wider cut of the skirt makes it really comfortable and it is such a versatile piece. Check out the last time I wore it on the blog here.

Flower Girl

July 2, 2013

unbenannt (2 von 4).jpg unbenannt (3 von 4).jpg unbenannt (4 von 4).jpg unbenannt (1 von 4).jpg

What I wore: Zara Dress, Denim Jacket and Sandals (all on sale now!), Asos Flower Garland, Miu Miu Bag, Margiela Rings, 

It's been some time that I wore a whole Zara look, I am always trying to steer clear of dressing head to toe in one label, but I picked up the dress and jacket in the sale and they just work so well together. I added some gold sandals and gold jewelry, a few dainty necklaces and rings, to make the outfit a little more put together, but still keep a kind of bohemian feel with the flower crown.
I wore this outfit to a friend's garden party. He throws one every year after the exams and it is always so much fun. I also think that with a few small changes (red lipstick or maybe some red sandals) this would be a great outfit for the 4th of July.
Do you have a go-to look for a garden party or barbecue? Do you Americans already have your outfits for celebrating the 4th figured out?

unbenannt (2 von 5).jpg unbenannt (4 von 5).jpg unbenannt (1 von 5).jpg unbenannt (3 von 5).jpg unbenannt (5 von 5).jpg

What I wore: River Island Skirt, Topshop T-Shirt, Bespoke Blazer (similar here), Isabel Marant Sandals (brown version here), 
Miu Miu Bag, YSL and Margiela Rings (cheaper version here), Kenneth Jay Lane Bracelet, Karen Walker Sunglasses

I actually wanted to post this look yesterday, but I got my hands on the new Dan Brown novel and spend all day reading. 
I just love it when you can dive into a book and the everything else is secondary. I especially enjoy Dan Brown's books, 
because I study Art History and know most of the paintings, buildings, etc he writes about.

Now on to the outfit. My dad had this blazer made for me when he was abroad and at first I was a little hesitant about 
the bright red, but now I love it. Paired with an all white ensemble it looks fresh and lends a great pop of color to an otherwise monochrome look.

Sorry that posting has been a little slow this week, but if you follow my Instagram you already now, I had my wisdom teeth pulled. So until I no longer look like a hamster, these pictures from last week will have to make do. 
I was at my boyfriend's and wore this outfit during the day and just with a change of shoes, a smaller bag and different jewelry I was ready for the night. I love versatile dresses like this one! 

Happy Friday and happy first day of Summer babes!:)

The Palms

What I wore: Zara Dress (recent), Topshop Leather Jacket, Alexander Wang Ankle Boots (love these), Reed Krakoff Bag, Maison Martin Margiela Rings, Asos Cuff

This is one of my favorite ways to dress. Cute dress toughened up with ankle boots and a leather jacket!  I recently got this Zara dress and can't wait to style it in different ways. Don't you just love the print? Gets me all excited for my American road trip this summer!
Oh the wanderlust is always strong around this time of year, and all those Instagram shots of people traveling makes studying at the end of the semester that much harder. But for now it's back to the books and googling restaurants and hard to find places in America. If you have any cool tips where to stay, eat, shop, etc I would love it if you let me know in the comments below!:)

What I wore: Isabel Marant Etoile Dress (old), Isabel Marant Sandals, UO Belt, Celine Bag, Kenneth Jay Lane Bracelet, Topshop Hearts Necklace, Maison Martin Margiela RingsKaren Walker Sunglasses

If you know me or have read my blog for some time, you know that I love leopard print. 
I used to dislike it for most of my life, because my mom would always wear it, acting as if it was a neutral. But now I completely understand her and in the end we sometimes can't help it but turn out exactly like our mothers, which we dread so much. In this case, I am okay with it, though;)

White Crop

What I wore: River Island Skirt, Zara Crop Top (recent) and Blazer, Asos Heels (similar), Samudra Pouch, CC Skye Bracelet, American Eagle Necklace, Ray Ban Sunglasses

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! :)
I sure did, because  for the first time in weeks I didn't have to study. Friday night I watched a soccer game with my boyfriend and his friends and we had some drinks at his place. Saturday the two of us made homemade burgers, we even made the buns ourselves, ate nearly all of them and just relaxed.  
On Sunday I went to brunch with my dad to celebrate Father's day and in the evening had dinner with both my parents. Since I moved out, I am much happier to see them and when we go out for dinner time just flies by.

Now on to the outfit: I know you are going to be tired of seeing this skirt again, but I just love it so much and there are endless possibilities to style it, so bear with me please. I paired it with this amazing crop top from Zara and my Samudra pouch, which gives me a bad case of wanderlust.
