Leather Jacket

It has been feeling like Spring in Berlin lately so I ditched my thick coat for my favorite leather jacket when I met up with my dear Vanessa  for a coffee fix yesterday! Owning a good leather jacket is a must. It's such a versatile piece and can last a lifetime. I'm always looking for a better one, which means softer leather, more details and better fit. Hope to swap my long loved one for a new baby soon.

I was wearing:
Mango Leather Jacket
Vintage Checked Shirt & Tee
Vintage Tartan Scarf
River Island Ripped Jeans
Louis Vuitton Bag (similar here)
Stan Smith Sneaker

De: Die letzten Tage überraschte der Februar in Berlin mit milden Temperaturen und Sonnenschein. Es war also endlich an der Zeit meinen dicken Mantel zu Hause zu lassen und meine liebste Lederjacke rauszuholen, als ich mich gestern mit Vanessa  zu einem Kaffee traf. Fix haben wir mein sehr lässiges OOTD an einer super schönen Fassade an der Friedrichstraße, für euch abgelichtet. Eine tolle Lederjacke gehört meiner Meinung nach in den Kleiderschrank jeder Frau (und jedes Mannes). Sie ist einfach zeitlos und wird mit den Jahren nur wertvoller. Ich bin ständig auf der Suche nach einem neuen Modell und hoffe, dass ich mir bald auch wieder eines zulegen kann.

Cookeria

Food is always a good idea! Today calls for an exciting food post to fight the Monday blues! If you're ever in need of an exclusive evening plan with friends, (and live in Berlin) this post is for you. My best friend visited the Cookeria last week in Berlin Charlottenburg and indulged in this wonderful food experience. I would have loved to be there too but couldn't, so I asked him to take some nice photos for a guest post for you guys :) The Cookeria is a cooking studio you can visit with friends or colleagues to cook and enjoying your own 5 course meal. Very simple. So delish!

His dinner consisted of:
Appetizer: Carpaccio with Salad
Starter: Lentil mustard soup
Middle course: Fettuccine with sea bass in homemade tomato sugo and basil
Main course: Corn chicken breast in estragon sauce with mashed potato and baby spinach 
Dessert: Caramelized pear with vanilla ice cream

Enjoy the photos and make sure to pay this place a visit!

Burger Art


What: Burger Art 
Where: Albrechtstraße 131, Steglitz, Berlin
What to eat: Sweet Dreams Burger with Goats cheese and cranberry sauce + sweet potato fries 
Verdict: Delicious meat and perfectly fried fries in groundnut (or peanut) oil. Make sure to give this tiny but super cool Burger restaurant a chance, should you pay Berlin a visit! You won't get disappointed.

P.S How cool is the interior though? Loved the Moroccan x Portuguese vibe! I felt like I was having lunch somewhere in Lisbon... Oh Lisbon.

GDS x Styleranking x Minnie Knows


Last week I flew out to Dusseldorf with Styleranking to take part in the GDS (Global Destination for Shoe & Accessories) Blogger Runway Show. Alongside 4 other lovely Blogger girls, including this season's Blogger Testimonial Alice, I got to style five key looks with my partner label Sebago. I had an amazing time and thank everyone who came to see our show. The actual show was followed by a quick interview session with the lovely ladies Constance and Katharina from The Fancy Lifestyle. So much fun! Although I must admit I was super nervous. And in retrospect, it's so strange to hear myself talking. But just so we can all feel embarrassed together, watch the video including the looks of all bloggers now below:

Kicks

I didn't pay these babies enough attention lately. Fact is, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Apart from the super cool color combo, you can walk all of Berlin without crying yourself too sleep at night suffering from foot ache... The girls among you will know what I'm talking about. No matter how much I love high heels (in summer rather than winter), nothing can come between me and my love, my kicks! I found these New Balance babies last year and I keep buying them in different models and colors. And as you guys know, I love a good bargain... I live for them! Sale2date is an insider's tip for shopping  my favorite NB kicks as well as loads of other super decent priced fashion pieces.

Have fun shopping lovelies!

De: Diesen New Balance Sneakern ist auf dem Blog bisher nicht genug Anerkennung zuteil geworden. Frage mich nicht warum, denn ich liebe sie schließlich! Fakt ist, dies sind die bequemsten Schuhe, die ich je getragen habe. Abgesehen vom super coolen Look in Rot und Schwarz, kann man in ihnen den ganzen Tag durch die Stadt laufen ohne das einem Abends die Füße schmerzen. Ihr Mädels wisst sicher wovon ich rede. So gern ich High Heels auch trage (vor allem aber im Sommer), nichts kann mich und meine Liebe, die Sneaker auseinander bringen. Die NB's aus diesem Post habe ich letztes Jahr im Winter gekauft. Ich kann einfach nicht aufhören mir immer wieder ein neues Modell zu zu legen, gerne auch mal zu einem günstigen Preis. Ihr wisst ja, ich liebe Schnäppchen... Deshalb verrate ich euch heute einen super Geheimtipp in Sachen Shopping. Viele Modelle meines Lieblingsschuhs könnt ihr jetzt zu tollen Preisen hier auf sale2date.de finden.

Viel Spaß beim Shoppen!

Summer Vibes

I don't now how you feel, but I could use some good weeks of sun just about now. The Winter has been dragging on way too long for my liking. Despite the cool temperature, I can't stop but dream about summer and what I am going to wear when I can finally go bare legged and combine my favorite summer staples in my most loved summer color, namely white. Even though I have to admit today was kinda alright, hot is still better than 'kinda alright', right? Well as I just mentioned, nothing says more summer, than a crisp white ensemble consisting of either one or multiple white pieces. Me for example, I love a white boho chic blouse and tunics, because they give my personal look the right amount of no effort has been made and super duper coolness. I love to pair them with a leather or denim mini, boyfriend jeans or shorts. These combos are perfect for a chilled summer day and night out. I'm currently in love with these three, here here and here, which I found at Esprit with just the right amount of detail to dress up my outfits. I can't wait for it to be warm enough to style them. Until then, let's all indulge in warmer thoughts by eyeing up these amazing images of Summer.

DE: Ich weiss ja nicht wie es euch geht, aber ich habe den Winter so langsam satt und sehne mich nach einigen Wochen Sonne. Ich bin einfach ein absolutes Sommerkind und hab es lieber zu heiß, als zu kalt. Heute gibt es hier daher einen schönen inspirierenden Artikel, nicht nur zum Thema Sommer und Sonne, sondern und zu meiner absoluten Trendfarbe im Sommer, nämlich weiß! Diese Farbe ist für mich so essentiell im Sommer, wie das Eisschlecken, Cocktailschlurfen und am Strand liegen. Neben weißen Kleidern, trage ich im Sommer am liebsten trage sind Blusen und Tuniken. Kombiniert mit einem Leder oder Denimminirock, zur Jeans oder Shorts, kann man mit diesen Teilen lässig in den Sommer starten. Zurzeit liebe ich diese drei klassischen Blusen hierhier und hier, die ich bei Esprit entdeckt habe, denn sie haben genau das richtige Maß an coolen Details um mit meinem persönlichen Look zu harmonieren. Ich kann es kaum abwarten, dass es endlich warm genug ist, sie für euch auf dem Blog zu stylen. Bis dahin, lasst euch gerne für eure kommenden Sommeroutfits hier inspirieren.

Tartan Love


Confessions need to be made... I'd always rather eat chocolate than proper food, I can't spend a day without listening to music and yes, I'm a sucker for tartan in all colors and shapes. Nothing beats this timeless color combo. I styled my favorite tartan scarf during my Dusseldorf venture last week, where I had the pleasure of styling my five key looks for the GDS Blogger Runway Show in collaboration with Styleranking. Me and the lovely fellow blogger ladies Alice, Vicky (who also took these snaps), Frida, and Bina turned stylists for this year's Runway Show. More on the show and my looks featuring my partner label Sebago soon.

Happy Monday lovelies!
I was wearing

In The Air

Another quick check in. Still from the comfort of 'my' bed. Upon arrival at Dusseldorf International Airport, I jumped into a taxi and made my way to the super cute Sir & Lady Astor Hotel. I was warmly welcomed by the concierge. A bit of smalltalk led to the obligatory question, anyone asks whenever one travels: What's the wifi password?
Yes, I'm one of those people.

Important things


Just checking in with you from the comfort of my bed, watching one episode of The King of Queens after another. Is it just me or is packing always something you postpone until the very last minute (even when you are just super excited to travel again), just to realize that you probably should have started earlier, because you end up forgetting something (hopefully not the most important thing). Well here I am doing just that. Again. I should have packed this morning already instead of procrastinating and exchanging packing for food-ing/talking/meeting the bestie. Oh well, now it's almost 8pm and my suitcase is just as empty as it can get. It really is time to pack. Now!

Destination: Dusseldorf.

When? Way too soon....

The perfect Trench

Hallhuber. The hunt for the perfect Trench coat has come to and end. Okay. I'm going to be honest, I already own a beige version but I simply couldn't resist to choose this perfect navy number when the lovely guys at Hallhuber approached me and asked me to style some items of their current collection.You can never go wrong with a classic Trench, whatever look you are trying to achieve. I paired it with a simple black jumper, also by Hallhuber, leather pants and my all time favorite Stan Smith sneaker. How amazing is my cute little YSL Bag? Although rather small, it fits all important items you need for a day or night out!

I was wearing:

Second Female Leather Pants


DE: Die Suche nach dem perfekten Trench hat endlich ein Ende. Okay, ich muss gestehen, einen beigen Trenchcoat besitze ich zwar schon, aber zu einer blauen Version meines Lieblingskleidungsstücks konnte ich nicht nein sagen.  Deshalb habe ich mir auch diesen tollen Trench von Hallhuber ausgesucht, als mir das Team vorschlug einige Teile ihrer neuen Kollektion zu stylen. Passend dazu trage ich einen schlichten schwarzen Pullover, auch von Hallhuber, eine Lederhose und meine geliebten Stan Smith Sneaker. Ich finde einen zeitlosen, klassischen Trench kann man nicht oft genug tragen, und das egal welchen Look man erzielen will.
