Yes, I am still alive...

...but unfortunately I´ve been super busy with work the last couple of weeks. 
That´s why I decided to take a little break from blogging and to focus 
on my daily work business instead of doing both things by halves. 
Now, as time went by so quickly, I began to recognize how much I was missing my personal style diary lately. 
Every inspiration and new discovery I made was carefully stored in my head in the beginning but of course, 
they became too many and I realized that I need this website to create memories of my life and inspirational sources. 
Long story short, time permitting, I´m going to be more active again on this platform and
 I hope you´ll coming along again for some outfit ideas, interior inspirations, personal wishlists and much more.

Today, I wanted to share with you some of my holiday souvenirs from my short trip to Paris. 
It felt amazing being back in my favourite city of all time. Paris is truly my happy place. 
Whenever I feel uninspired or uncertain about the future or overwhelmed by everything,
 a couple of days in this city and everything seems less complicated. 
August is perhaps not the best month to visit a big city but we were really lucky and
 spend most of our days walking through the beautiful streets of Montmatre, Marais and 
Saint Germain des Prés, ate good food and did a little bit of shopping, of course.
My most exciting and also most pricy purchase are my new sunglasses from Céline. 
An item I wanted to add to my selection for a long time and Paris felt like the perfect place to buy them. 
While strolling through Marais I found a nice little Vintage shop and quickly went in 
and came back with a new bag from Longchamp. A totally unintentional purchase but a real bargain 
and I love a good black and brown leather bag. Somehow I´m really into hair clips at the moment. 
That´s why I couldn´t leave this one, which is also hand made in France. 
Last but not least (not really visible in the picture) I bought a pair of cure little star earrings, 
which I found quite parisian and cool to glam up a simple outift for the evening. 
Oh, and I payed my favourite parisian designer Isabel Marant a visit and bought a grey woolen fisherman´s cap, 
which I wanted to buy last season already. A piece I am so happy about as it wasn´t easy to find it in my hat size. 
Apparently, I have a really small head. Such being the case the smallest size was still too small and my hat
 is at a tailor right now to make it even smaller to fit my teeny tiny head. 
We brought home, of course, some delicious macarons (a must) but they are all gone by now.

Marland Backus, Heather Kemesky, Janiece Dilone by Cass Bird for Porter Magazine Spring 2016

When one of my favourite photographer, two of my favourite models and lace dresses meet 
in one editorial, the result has to look as magical as it does in this photo story by 
Cass Bird for the current issue of Porter Magazine. 
Titled as Heavenly Creatures, Marland Backus and Heather Kemensky look more than heavenly 
in their beautiful, light summer dresses thank to Stylist Alex White. 
I can´t wait to spend happy summer days like this on the countryside with my friends.
Let´s pretend we´re gonna look like this as well.

Trench Coat Weather

Originally created to protect us from rain, the trench coat has proven long time ago
 that it has become a real wardrobe staple for Spring time not only for practicle reasons 
but most of all as a fashion must have. 
Some people might be a different opinion. I guess, you either love trench coats or you hate them but
 I think most of you agree when I say, that a classic trench coat belongs in every wardrobe by the age of 25.

There are a couple of nice models available on the high street, if you want to find out first 
whether it fits in your wardrobe or not. But I have to say it is definitely worth investing in a luxury, 
high quality version of such a classic piece. You can find Burberry coats in every well sorted
 Second hand store for a fraction of the original price, which doesn´t make it impossible to own such a classic. 
However, my heart beats for one not so traditional model from Totême and a rather Burberry-like piece from Filippa K
Hard to make a decision as they are totally different in style but both absolutely beautiful. 
I need to figure out soon because the weather in Berlin is just perfect for a Trench at the moment!

Wishful Thinking

The past weekend finally felt like Spring here in Berlin. The sun treated us with its warmest sun beams and 
everything smelled fresh and spring-like. When it comes to me Spring could be all year round. 
The perfect weather to get out your sandals and wear them with a classic pair of blue jeans. 
There is a small selection of shoes I´d still like to add to my Spring/Summer shoe collection this year. 
For example a nice pair of leather slippers as well as a pair of mid heeled sandals. 
ATP Sandals seems to make my most secret shoe dreams come true by its modern minimalism. 
One pair of them might be my next big investment.
 I don´t know when my obsession has started but I can´t help myself when it comes to shoes. 
What kind of shoe is still missing in your Spring/Summer collection?
