Bring back the 70’s!

I am currently OBSESSED with 1970’s clothing. Flared jeans, pinafore dresses, dungarees, everything screaming 70’s!

I recently went to Paris with two of my friends (I will upload a blog post on this shortly) and one of them had these really cool flared denims in mustard and combined with my outfit we looked like we walked straight out of 1973.

3 white mini dresses I loved this summer

White summer dresses

Summer is peaking and I might be a bit late but I definitely wanted to show my favorite summer trend with you. Short, shorter, the dresses this summer! Which is kinda nice for me since at my height EVERY dress looks suuuuper short.

I went to Portugal last week (blog post will be up soon) and it was the perfect time to wear all my favorite summer outfits. Besides jumpsuits dresses were my favorite pieces of clothing this summer.

The three outfits below are of my three favorite white mini dresses. I found two of them on sale at Asos and the other one at Zara. I love to pair them with either some cute sandals or either biker or some suede boots. On the last outfit I wore flip flops because I hurt my foot while in Portugal.

You don’t need to wear much else as I think they look the best if styled really simple. Maybe out your hair up in a ponytail and add a scarf, wear some jewelry and that’s it – Your summer look is ready!

Here’s a little life hack from me: Always wear some running shorts underneath so you don’t have to worry about sitting down or getting out of a car. No-one will ever know!

A weekend trip to Milan

One of my very first blog posts was my trip to Milan and Como in 2016. Now – two years later – I went back and I had the best time!

When I moved to London I lived in an Airbnb for the first few weeks. I shared it with three Italian guys. One night we had some pizza and one of them showed me some Italian music. Being a huge fan of Chiara Ferragni I had already heard of Fedez, however, I had not really listened to his music. I told a friend, who I met in Milan last time, about it and he mentioned that Fedez and  J-ax would be playing a show in San Siro. My friend and I decided to go there, so I booked my flight and planned my trip.

The concert was on a Friday and since Francesco, my Italian friend, worked I decided to “explore” the city by myself. I still remembered some places from my last trip and even though I’ve been there before, the Duomo was my first stop. I bought some icecream and just enjoyed the sun, while probably looking like a real tourist.

In the evening I went to San Siro to meet up with Francesco and to watch the concert. Even though I only understand a bit of Italian, I still had a great time.

The following day we went to Lake Como, but I will write a seperate post about that.

On Sunday we rented bikes and cycled into the city centre. We had aperitivo at the Aperol terrace, which hands down has the best view! After starting the day with a drink we had napolitan pizza for lunch. I love food, but I love nothing as much as I love some good napolitan pizza.

We walked through Moscova and Porta Nuova, had some gelato at the cutest ice cream store I’ve ever seen and then took the metro to CityLife.  The weather was so so nice and I tried (hard) to get a bit of a tan.

Sadly my flight back was on Monday night already (since I work Tue-Sat). I had some more gelato, some more pizza and some sushi (super Italian, I know), went to Garibaldi, had some coffee and bought some gifts for my colleagues and flatmates and headed to the airport.

Those of you who read my blog since the beginning might remember that the last time I was in Milan my flight home got cancelled and I arrived 8 hours late. This time it was delayed by two hours and when I arrived in Heathrow the tube, coaches and trains weren’t running anymore. So I had to get a cab home. Turns out I’ll have to live on bread and water for the rest of the month ( or at least until British Airways pays me back the cab costs lol).

Spring in Primrose Hill

Spring has finally arrived (and so have my Asos orders). We had quite a few warm days here in the past month and last Sunday I finally got to wear one of my new summer dresses. So me and my friend Alexa went on a walk around Primrose Hill.

Primrose Hill is a cute, little area near Camden, with lots of beautiful houses, nice cafés and great restaurants. It’s a big crowded on weekends as everybody tries to grab a coffee or beer while sitting in the sun.

We walked around, took some pictures and even got stopped by some paparazzi who were hunting for some (real) celebs. London is always good for surprises, let me tell you that.

Before we went home we had coffee at “Cowshed” which is also a Spa, I will definitely book a beauty treatment there at some point.

Outfit of the day 18/03/2018

It’s snowing in London! Again! Just when we thought winter was over the cold came back. But this didn’t stop us from going out and taking some pictures. Gotta do what you gotta do, right?

I went out with a colleague to shoot and to teach her how to use Lightroom. She lives near Tower Bridge and she knew the perfect spot to take pictures. I never even knew that you could get the Shard and Tower Bridge into one frame. Most people go to Tower Hill to take photos of the Tower Bridge, but as the Shard is on the same side as Tower Hill you wouldn’t be able to take a photo of both of them.

I really want to share my favourite London Photo spots with you. There are so many cool neighbourhoods, corners, shops and houses that are perfect for IG or blog photos.

Do you have any favourite spots in London?

A Christmas Day Walk

Outfit with Berlin DomeLong braid and startbucks cupwinter outfit at Berlin christmas marketWinter outfit and starbucks cupOlive Green Hunter bootsLong side braid

It’s boxing day. How fast this year went by, right? Sadly we didn’t have any snow in Berlin this Christmas.

This Christmas my mother visited me in Berlin and I spent a couple of days with her. It’s sort of a Christmas tradition in my family to go for a walk on Christmas Eve. My hometown is close to the sea, so normally we take our walk there.

We chose to go to Mitte and grab a coffee there. I was really hoping to have at least one day of snow this December, but sadly there wasn’t any this year. Growing up in Germany I am used to having snow at least once a year. Maybe I’ll have more luck on my birthday (which is next month btw).

I hope all of you had happy holidays!

Summer day at Barigui Park

On Monday I went to Brazil. I was an exchange student in Curitiba in 2012 and I kind of left half of my heart here. The people, the food, the nature – everything is just so nice.

I’ll be in Brazil for a total of 16 days, two weeks here in Curitiba and then 2 days in Rio. This is my second time coming “home” after my exchange year, the last time I was here was in December/January of 2014/15. Back then I celebrated Christmas with my host family here in Curitiba and NYE in Rio with friends.

I had a pretty hard time the last few months, so I decided to go back to my “happy place”.

One of my favorite places in Curitiba is the “Parque Barigui” – the cities most famous park. It was one of the first places I visited here and I fell in love with it. People go there to walk their dogs, run, relax or have picnic.

My (host) sister and I went there with our dog Smartie, we walked around the lake and had coconut water.

Stay tuned for more posts about Brazil
