Beige on beige on beige… I love the streets in my lovely neighborhood Charlottenburg. All pretty and in pastell colors. Last week, we squeezed in a coffee date between work to talk about New York and some plans for the blog! Fortunately, we can still enjoy some last summer days in Berlin and the weather is still warm. Still, I’m somehow already looking forward to fall! It’s going to be an exciting time! Skrit – Zara Bag – Zara Shoes – Nike Shopping List
It’s that time of the year again… No, not christmas, or Halloween, but one of the oldest German traditions – Oktoberfest! Nowadays, the Wiesn is not only celebrated in Bavaria but all over the country. Especially in Berlin there are numerous Oktoberfest events and all the cool Berlin girls are suddenly into heart-shaped clutches, cute embroideries and dirndl dresses… Crazy no less! We have to admit: we will be putting on a dirndl and dancing to some folk music this year too! Because it’s fun and some traditions are worthy to be celebrated. This year we will attend the Wiesn at Café am neuen See, one of Berlin’s most beautiful locations. You have to buy your ticket in advance, but it’s totally worth it. Check out the FB event… And see you there! Of course, every Wiesn party needs a proper Wiesn outfit. That’s why we were heading to Zalando and found some beautiful dirndl dresses and accessoires! We can only recommend heading to the page, maybe you still need some last minute Wiesn piece …
New concept, new owner, new location. The Bread&Butter tradeshow has gone through a whole lot of changes and refreshingly enters the fashion world stage this year at Berlins Arena. Newest innovation? The tradeshow (now owned by Zalando) is open to the public. Throughout the years it has been a by-invitation-event-only over the past years, this has been changed and is now accessible to everyone interested in the fashion hype. Direct interaction with the brands and the possibility to buy the newest pieces straight-away (also new!) encourages the fashion crowd to travel to Alt-Treptow, Berlin. We enjoyed some quality time together and had the chance to indulge in some good conversations with the girls from Fleek. Bread&Butter by Zalando 2nd – 4th September 2016 Arena Berlin Eichenstraße 4, 12435 Berlin Germany Opening hours Friday, 2nd September: 4pm – midnight Saturday and Sunday, 3rd and 4th September: 1pm – midnight What To Wear to this location
Hello August, hello ultimate summer month! We certainly can’t complain over the weather during the last few weeks. We had a lot of warm, sunny days already but wouldn’t mind it to stay that way. This months inspiration is inspired by grey and light blue shades, fresh salad recipes, light denim pieces and beige colored bags.
In Summer, there is nothing better than being able to just throw on alight, colorful, swinging summer dress! I fell madly in love with this one by Desigual that we found during their #DesigualSale. I already know where I’m going to wear this beautiful little dress – vacation plans have been made! So happy to be in the sun soon. Dress – Desigual In cooperation with Desigual
There’s nothing better to show off your summer tan than with a white, lacey dress! I’m absolutely in love with this find by Desigual. It’s perfect to feel like you’re on vacation, even when you’re already back to work and everyday life. It’s best combined with some wedges or flat sandals and maybe a light leather jacket if the weather is unpredictable as it is in Berlin at the moment… Dress – Desigual Leather Jacket – Mango Shoes – Mango Bag – Zara In cooperation with Desigual
Throwback to a wonderful time in Milan. Of course I had to visit Bar Luce, part of the Fondazione Prada und fully designed by creative genius Wes Anderson. I can actually say, I felt more like being part of a colorful film set like the one of Grand Budapest Hotel that being in a café in Milan. But that is exactly what makes Bar Luce so exciting – it is so otherworldly, it transports you into a different place and you can somehow fade out day-to-day life.

Beyonce’s formation video, Vogue shoots, black lace is everywhere right now. And we can say: we love it. The challenge is somehow to find the right mixture between lingerie and street wear, not overdoing it. The clue is mostly to mix black lace with cool accessories, like biker boots and leather bags. Or in summer a black lace bustier even goes with a ripped jeans shorts, creating a festival look.
Denim on a sunny day… I simply love that in summer, you can just take a pretty skirt and a t-shirt and you are set. I admire simple outfits, that are nevertheless chic but not overdone, especially during the week. Sometimes you just need a five minute combination that will bring you through the day no matter what. The heels have the perfect height, they are super comfortable but still lengthen your legs and make them look pretty. Skirt – New Look T-Shirt – Zara Heels – New Look Shades – Ray Ban
We try to at least once a weak meet for coffee, blog talk and snapping some pictures. Because we both work full time and study as well, sometimes it is hard to find time. But somehow, we always manage! We love that Berlin has so many quiet and nice streets, that are also green with flowers. It just very much feels like home.
