Me yesterday!

Keeping it simple wearing black leggings, my beloved Isabel Marant Dicker boots, a simple shirt, my all-time-favorite scarf and my old denim jacket :)

Inspired by Miu Miu!

Cleaning out my shoe closet yesterday I came up with the idea of a Miu Miu Fall/Winter Campaign inspired shoot. And voilà, here's the output. Hope you guys like it :D

Afternoon heat!

It was so warm last Saturday, even in the afternoon heat. It was the perfect timing, because I just came back from shopping some new lingerie with Sarah (with her I always end up buying underwear - no idea why) and realized that I still had this -yet unworn- Monki shirt hanging in my closet. So I created this summery weekend look which was perfect for sunbathing in the park ;)
Today, we are having a barbecue summer party with the whole office and I keep my fingers crossed that it won't start raining! Have a great summer weekend everyone :D

Close-up!

No look today, but some close-ups shot by my friend Sarah. I am quite busy with work right now, but of course I do have some more looks in the pipeline :D
Also, I am going to get my hair done and I'm currently looking for some inspirations. When it comes to my hair, I'm a real coward. So I'm not really sure if I will be up for a whole new cut or color. What do you think? Any suggestions?

Sizzling Summer Days!

The past few days have been sizzling hot! I really like those summer days and I usually spend them on my terrace with some ice tea, a great book and the latest fashion magazines. On Sunday, we took a break from relaxing and went to the park for some ice-cream and to shoot some pictures ;)

Summer Weekend Deluxe!

The summer was back just in time for my birthday on Thursday - and the weather stayed perfect all weekend :D
My friend Sarah came over from Munich and we spent the Saturday afternoon catching up, enjoying the sunny weather, eating some healthy lunch at Dean & David and doing some shopping. And of course, we took lots of pictures ;) Here we go with the first pile of photos shot on Saturday...

Birthday Dinner!

Yesterday, I was having a fabulous birthday dinner with my family. And look what I dug out of the depths of my closet: A Miu Miu dress that I got back in 2000 and which has gone through lots of emotional moments with me. I was wearing it to the christening of my godson, the wedding of my cousin, my graduation ceremony and to countless family birthday parties. And I still love its 50s-charme. So you could really say that it was a good investment ;)

Thank you all so much for your sweet birthday wishes :D

Birthday Girl!

Today I am turning 25. One year older and wiser ;)
So I thought I'll share a little mix of photos with you that somehow never made it into one of my blog posts. The first three photos were shot during the cruise I did back in June, the fourth one was taken backstage at the HUGO Fashion Show in July, the next three photos are from March from my trip to Paris and the last one was recently shot by my lovely cousin.
Tonight, I'm going to have a birthday dinner with my parents and on Saturday, I am going to celebrate with some of my closest friends :D

Something old, something new...

When I was a kid, I used to lay out my clothes for the next day before I went to bed. I don't do that anymore because I prefer to start the day with a whole closet full of possibilities. My style really depends on how I feel on the particular day. It might be a casual day, a denim day, a dress-up day or a I-don't-know-what-to-wear-but-I'm-trying-to-make-the-best-of-it-day ;)
I especially love to combine old and new things. An old shirt can look surprisingly great combined with a new skirt or a new piece of jewellery. So here I'm wearing something old (sweater), something new (necklace) and two items in blue - but nothing borrowed, cause that's the only thing I don't like ;)

Eye-Catcher!

My red leather jacket from Zara can really work wonders and turn each look into an eye-catcher. Since I was pretty tired on Friday, I chose a casual look and grabbed my red wonder-working-jacket on my way out :D
Do you also own an eye-catching jacket or blazer?

Run, Baby, run!

Yesterday, I went shopping with a friend, but this time, I was shopping to upgrade the sportswear section of my wardrobe ;) I got some new running shoes and sport clothes which I was just wearing for my morning run in the park. New shoes and new clothes are always the best motivation, don't you think?!?

30 Seconds to Mars and Placebo live on Stage in Stuttgart!

Yesterday, I went to the 30 Seconds to Mars and Placebo Open Air Concert in Stuttgart. It was completely out of the blue, because I had actually missed out on the ticket sale. So it was a huge surprise when a friend of mine spontaneously managed to organized some VIP tickets :D
We had so much fun dancing around and singing along to the songs. It was one of the best live concerts ever. My personal highlight was when Placebo played "Every you every me", the song from the movie Cruel Intentions, which I have watched at least one million times when I was a teenager ;)
Afterwards, we went to the After Show Party, met some more friends and enjoyed drinks and canapés. I included two short videos for you guys at the end of the post and I hope they're any good :)

Wearing a scarf in August!

Who would have thought that there is the need to wear a scarf in August? I left my jacket at home yesterday, but even with a scarf it was quite chilly outside. Don't let the sunshine fool you ;)

First look with my new sneakers

You told me that you were curious to see how my new hi-top sneakers would fit into my closet and I must admit, I was curious myself ;)
Originally, I was planning to wear them with skinny jeans or leggings. But whenever the sun comes out these days I rather opt for a summer dress. And surprise surprise: They also work with dresses. Guess they will also be great with mini skirts and shorts :)

One day of summer

These days are definitely not the typical summer days one expects to have in August. One minute the sun is shining and the next minute the temperature drops and it starts raining. With the weather being so crazy, I was lucky to spent a few warm and sunny hours outside on Saturday :)

Ooops I did it again!

It seems like I've developed a real passion for Isabel Marant footwear. Or my pink poppy bow pumps and taupe dicker boots just needed some new company. Well, whatever! Say hello to my new hi-top babies :)

Nerd Alert!

Do you recognize me? :D
I usually wear contacts, so there are only few photos of me wearing glasses. These ones are actually Dior Men, but I kind of liked the shape, so I went for them. With -4.5 diopters I can hardly go anywhere without contacts or glasses, because otherwise I would bump into the next door frame ;)
Do you also have to wear glasses or contacts?
Yesterday, I was having problems with my contacts, so maybe I should just opt for my nerd glasses more often... This week, I finally received a pretty great addition to my wardrobe and I cannot wait to show it to you. Plus, I've got so many ideas for shoots and projects, so I really hope there'll be enough time for all of it this weekend :D
I would also like to use this opportunity to thank you all for following me here and on FACEBOOK and for helping me improve the blog day by day with your comments and e-mails!

In the park...

I am completely in love with this spot. The bench reminds me of the end of the movie Notting Hill :D

City Girl

Here's one of my typical looks for a relaxed Saturday in the city. I always love to go the farmer's market, have lunch with my family or coffee with friends and go window shopping. I have also lived in London, Munich and Hamburg, but no matter where I've lived, I've always spent my Saturdays doing the exact same things :D Well, except from the family lunches, which I was really missing back then. Do you also have a Saturday routine?

Time for a makeover!

It was about high time for a makeover of my blog and I really hope that you like the new design :D
Change is essential, and as much as I liked my old header with which I started this blog two years ago, I also like to try something new. It's actually the first makeover of my blog and I am really excited to hear your thoughts on my new design.
Last, but not least, a very special THANK YOU goes out to Carmen and Basti for their inspirations and help, you're my design gurus <3

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?!

With all the color blocking and neon colors around, I just felt like I needed a break. So I went for this casual-classic outfit. At work, I often wear the jeans-blazer combination, it's the perfect mix. Fortunately, working in communication and advertising allows you to dress casual and to sport the latest trends, so even blazers are not mandatory ;)
Have a great week - and keep it nice and simple :D
