August, a month in which we still hope to enjoy some sunny days and mild nights. We like to head out and meet some friends at the local bistro or bar, enjoy a slice of pizza or sip on a cold beer. We can still easily forget our daily obligations and hope to gain strength for the up-coming colder and especially darker months. Our wardrobe is therefore still filled with summery pieces e.g. white dresses, fancy sandals, cute necklaces and pastel colored cross-body bags. Our sunglasses are inspired from old, glamours Hollywood divas and the lengths of our dresses reach from sexy short to bohemian maxi chic.
A classical, well suited jacket can turn any outfit into a sensation. This summer we both had fun in trying out some more daring ones in order to give our everyday looks a little twist. This red jacket by Mango (currently on SALE – be quick!) is a perfect day and night piece. With jeans and a shirt you can work it during the day, even at the office, and with a cute dress plus some fancy heels it makes the perfect match for a night out. At the end of this post we have put together a little overview with some fancy, statement jackets which you can happily add to your shopping list. Jeans – Zara (on Sale!) Jacket – Mango (on Sale!)

It’s one week left until the Moët Party Day – we’re counting! However, this weekend is going to be less glamorous… We will both be working on Saturday and hopefully enjoy the sun on Sunday a little. About this look: the dress is my new favorite summer dress, the kind that you will throw over in seconds as soon as the sun comes out and instantly feel good in! I combined it with my small everyday-bag and some summer sandals. Dress – Mango Bag – Furla Shoes – Zara
In Berlin, the last May days have been the hottest in history – we had nearly constant 30 degrees Celsius and on Tuesday even 34! Surely, we hope that this warm weather will remain throughout June as well. Apart from being sunny and warm, June is a colorful month for me. There is always a play of light and colors: the flowers blooming in the garden, a bright pink summer dress, a statement bag in yellow, an orange Aperol Spritz, a bright green salad… Let’s celebrate the colors of June this month!
Mules We’ve first seen them on the runways of Prada and co. (and to be honest, couldn’t make much of this trend in the beginning). Now, they’re everywhere! In our opinions, they are the perfect combination of chic and casual, a pair of shoes fitting to many outfits and occasions. Mom Jeans Thank go for mom jeans! We couldn’t love them more. They’re super stylish, super cozy and a perfect fit (they always make a slim waist, because of the high waist cut). Mom jeans really make our daily lives more comfortable… Cross-Body Bags There’s nothing more stylish and „blogger-like“ than a cross-body bag, over a fur coat, dress, blouse, blazer… The list is endless. However, what always remains is that cross-body bags are not only practical (you have your hands free for phones, coffees, drinks…) but also an upgrade to every style. They just always look classy but effortless.
The bomber jacket trend is still growing strong and we can’t deny that we also love these light jackets. While they only came in black or an oliv green at the beginning, you will now be able to find them in any colour and decorated with any pattern. This dark red one is the perfect day to night version. Combined with light colours during the day and a black dress during night you can easily mix and match it. Top – H&M Jacket – H&M Pants – Zara Sandals – Mango Clutch – Furla
Newest addition to my wardrobe… After wanting a chic, simple and elegant clutch that can go with every outfit, I finally decided to get a Furla Metropolis bag. It’s beige, to be more specific the color is „acero“ with some light golden details. The inside is crafted with soft, beige suede and some rivets are supporting the bag from underneath. Dear Furla Metropolis, I love your simple and chic design, that you go with every outfit and I am already looking forward to spending the summer with you!
It’s Monday and the week ahead of us is filled with appointments. We have been working on an exciting cooperation which we will launch this Wednesday on the blog – stay tuned. Besides our daily madness we will be traveling between university, business meetings, ballet rehearsals and grabbing a coffee on the go. The past weeks have been really busy and it seems the up-coming ones won’t be much easier (our schedules are drenched in different colours and plastered with sticky notes).

Cailin Klohk, who we spotted through Instagram, is 23 years old and was born and raised in Germany. Her mum is Irish, so she grew up speaking English as her first language and moved to London to study here when she was just 19. Today, Cailin works as the Junior Fashion Writer at Topshop Head Office. Her job includes managing and writing the Topshop blog (find an article here on how she got her job), as well as writing features for the Topshop UK website, newsletters and more. This background got us hocked instantly and we are super happy that we got her to fill out our interview. When you were a child, what did you dream of being? I wanted to be an actress when I was younger – I was actually signed with an agency for a while and got quite far in the casting rounds for some big German productions, but I quickly noticed I wasn’t that into it after all, so I gave up that dream. Then I wanted to be a …
Happy First Of May Everyone! Today, we have a holiday in Germany so I can write this post, sitting in a beautiful garden, in the sun, with a green tea and a bowl of fruit right next to me! In my opinion, May is a particularly beautiful month, since it is the month of flowers blooming everywhere and often it is also the transition to summer. Only in May, the temperatures rise considerably and we can spend more time outside – finally!
