Just got back from Dubai the other week (more on that soon) and while I was excited for some warm weather I can't enjoy more the temperatures in Berlin. Turns out I'm a spring / autumn kind of person but I guess I knew that already through the all black outfit choices.
I'm a big fan of dressing simple, and by simple I mean monochrome basics, while adding some pieces here and there that give the overall look some personality. Like hats I can't stop buying or jewelry I can't stop wearing. Or like the new addition on my accessories shelve the wood watch, really a conversation starter (no, I mean, like really).
Made out of maple wood, self-winding automatic and designed for people who don't just have somewhere to be but they have somewhere to go this little guy will be on my wrist in the cold season. Get yours here.
Wooden Watch Review
Bag - Chloé Drew
I'm sure you've seen this bag on every possible website so far and for all good reasons, it has been and still is everyone's favorite for a while. It's simple and feminine and could easily take you from day to night, no wonder it's been walking on the street of fashion week for a few seasons. While worn in different combinations from sneakers to night gowns, I'm still more drown to the effortless casual combination especially now with the cold season approaching. So here is one of my favorite outfits: wraparound skirt in a thick grey fabric with a chunky sweater and flats, all in neutral shades. Easy, right?

I did it, I managed to post 2 weeks in a row and pose in lingerie. To be honest, that's how I'm spending my Sunday mornings lately: a cup of coffee, an easy read and black lingerie. And yes, I do put on jewelry some times, it's relaxing. For the longest time I've struggled with showing off my body and now that I think of it it all goes back to when I was around 12-13 years old. I remember being bullied by kids who were not understanding why I wasn't fitting into certain image standards other girls were showing - simply my breasts just developed faster, runs in the family. Two, three years later the situation changed to 180°, I was a teenager receiving too much unwanted attention so naturally I tried to dress in ways that were "hiding" my breasts, always self conscious about my looks, and facing terrible experiences when going bra shopping. Now fast forward to the present, I can easily say I got wiser with age and now, close to 25 I could not care less what other people think. I've got some help in the lingerie department too: the wonders a perfect fitting bra can do. I think I discovered Hunkemöller when I moved to Germany, 2 years ago. I remember stepping in into one of their shops and out with like 10 bras - there are not a lot of lingerie shops out there who are not exclusively designing for A/B cups so for me that was a big win. Now I shop online for bras. I hope you're not struggling with finding the perfect bra but just in case you are, give Hunkemöller a try - make sure you ask for a specialists' help in store to find your size exactly.

When seasons change I instantly get into blogging mood again. Wired. I guess is because I'm not a "38 degrees summer in the city" kind of person. Like seriously, who is? Thank God, the temperatures dropped considerably so I basically pulled out all blazers, cardigans, sweaters and I'm SO ready for fall. This outfit here is one of those so called transitioning - shoes and shirt from summer, sleeveless blazer (timeless?!) and a bucket bag (these ones are apparently still cool) to which I added a fluffy thing (very Fendi inspired but which costs like 10x less) and a wool hat because honestly my hair has a personality of its own.
So tell me, what's your transitioning into fall go to pieces?
Fingers crossed my blogging mood isn't going away soon - you'll see next week.
The reality behind: Nobody can walk in high heels 8h a day. However in Converse.. yes please!
I utterly and completely abandoned this little space of mine the past couple of months, let's call it winter hibernation. But now that spring is just around the corner I coming back with a nice little wishlist: nude tones & fresh vibes. Some of the items have been on my list since forever (hello Valentino pumps in nude that I can't find anywhere in my size) and I'm slowly working my way towards them and others are just seasonal trends that caught my eye - sleeveless trench? kimono? yes please. Let me know which one's your favorite and check the links at the bottom of the post for each product.
