Happy Halloween

Same procedure as every year… Happy spooky Halloween! It simply has become a tradition we can’t just push aside on our blog. Halloween makes us go a little mad but why not give in to such desires from time to time? What are your plans for today? Got a chic Halloween party coming up? Or maybe planed a cozy stay-in night with some scary movies? Or got a dinner organized with your girls? Whatever it is, make sure to enjoy this day to the fullest. Just today I heard that the Americans spend 3 billion dollars on Halloween decoration. I knew they are crazy about this day but this is c r a z y! Here in Germany there is still a lot to learn…

These Streets

New York is an incredibly exciting but can also be an exhausting city. When you work here, you’ll often find yourself rushing from appointment to another, located in different parts of this super huge city. The result: you do not only need an outfit, but moreover a companion to bring you through the day! My Softclox are this type of companion, they’ll carry me through the New York streets and help me to master my day! I love that this model (Fumiko lavaglitter) literally goes with everything and can be styled in many different ways. I already wore it to a meeting, a brunch date and a dinner with friends. The little sparkle on the heel even adds some glamour to every outfit! You can check out Softclox’s new collection here and also find you companion that will carry you through your day!

Washington Photo Diary

Staying in New York for a little longer gave me the chance to travel to Washington D.C. for one day (first note to myself and everyone out there: one day is way too short for this city!). After reading Dan Browns “The Lost Symbol” I was just longing to visit this city. My boyfriend and I took the bus from New York straight to Washington which took about 4,5 hours – long journey but it was the cheapest fare. We reached the Union Station around 10am and wanted to drive back from here around 7pm. Luckily most time of the day we didn’t have any rain and were therefore able to walk A LOT (my legs were dying at the end of the day!). But it was absolutely worth it. The city is amazing! So much to see, so much to explore. What stunned me the most was the Lincoln Memorial, the Library of Congress and the National Art Gallery (post about this coming soon). If you ever get the chance to visit this city I can just highly recommend it to you …

A timeless classic

Who doesn’t like a classic piece in their wardrobe? Right – everyone wants to own something delicate, something that matches with everything and is worth investing in. When it comes to watches we guess everyone is a little picky because it is a piece you constantly wear, day in and day out. Therefore finding the right one can be pretty tough. Pierre Cardin offers a great range of watches where probably everyone will be able to find a great watch for an affordable price. The one you see in these pictures also comes with a little trick – you can change the wrist band. Make sure to visit their page for the full shopping fun.

The Trench

I‘ve been looking for the perfect trench coat for quite a while now… Last week, I finally fount it at Club Monaco in the Central Park West area! A trench coat is like the most essential piece a girl should own, it goes with nearly everything and is supposed to upgrade your outfit instantly. I love the classic beige color of this one and the cut, also the material is just super comfortable and does not wrinkle when worn. I could literally buy everything at Club Monaco, their style is just exactly what I imagine my wardrobe to be!

Brunch in New York: House of Small Wonder

As soon as you live in New York for a while, you will realize that Brooklyn is like a whole distinct world and you don’t necessarily have to travel to Manhattan all the time if you live there. You”ll have your own micro cosmos, you favorite coffee shop, brunch place, food market and so on… Last weekend we tried the brunch/lunch/dinner cafe “House of Small Wonder” in Williamsburg. They offer the best matcha cappuccino and homemade gluten free bread and granola. Even though the place is really small, we did not wait long for a table and it is definitely one of the coziest spots we found so far!

Work Outfit

During busy work days there is no room for fancy outfits but a comfortable and simple outfit will do. I like to stick to black with some statement pieces as highlights. Necklace – Sence Copenhagen Leather Jacket – Zara Belt – Mango Sunglasses – Ace&Tate

Coffee in New York: Brooklyn Roasters

Brooklyn Roasters is my favorite coffee shop in the DUMBO area. A perfect Sunday would start with a soy latte and some work for the blog on my laptop. Afterwards, a stroll through the DUMBO area and a walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards, one can go to Brooklyn Heights for some shopping.
