Today I thought I could brighten up the cloudy, rainy and stormy day with a bit of yellow and florals. Perfect occasion to wear my new Zara cardi! I bought it two weeks ago, I had to because I fell in love at first sight with the cute brown elbow patches it has.
Perfect match for my new favourite tunic/dress with the colourful floral pattern.

So I had an appointment at the dermatologist's this morning. I tell you this guy is a trip! He looked at my rash for about 2 seconds and afterwards spent about 15 minutes on telling me about the hospital he used to work at. Before I was wondering why you still have to wait half an hour at the least although you had an appointment, well now I know why...
When I left the doctor's it was still pretty early forenoon so I decided to get breakfast and take a walk around the old town. Somehow I felt drawn to the Rhine, hence I took my coffee and my feta-olives pastry puff and walked to the water front. Ah beautiful even in bad weather! Seeing the Rhine and the promenade always reminds me of how I love Düsseldorf after all.
I had a bad start when I moved here but over the years - and especially after my Mum sold our house in the tiny village where I grew up - I think I couldn't have found a better place to live.
I've been collecting photos of spots in Düsseldorf the last weeks, I'll post them as soon as I have enough pretty ones.
These are my new shoes, they're so perfect for fall!
After breakfast at the Rhine promenade (oh my God was it crazy stormy there!) I walked back to the tube station and made detours to a book shop and to H&M on the way. I wasn't in the mood to start a big shopping-spree, I just wanted to look around a bit.
Eventually I couldn't resist buying these:
Left: I absolutely want to travel to Scandinavia someday, now that I own this beautiful illustrated book I can at least travel there in my mind.
Right: The other book is a travelogue of a man who visited countries that are not recommended to tourists (Ivory Coast, Congo, Armenia, Afghanistan etc.), can't wait to read it!
Look at this adorable scarf, there's a fox or something (?!) on it aaaw :)
H&M has wonderful fall accessories. I also bought a navy shirt, fingerless gloves and a flower headband.
Furthermore - back home - I started reading a new book and snacked on a creamcheese bagel.
I've read only a few pages so far but I already love the book! I loved its two predecessors too.
Have you ever read Frank McCourt? Maybe you know his bestseller "Angela's Ashes"?
I always thought that's literature for older people (due to a very old Irish lecturer at uni who recommended it) but I was so wrong! The way he describes situations and his writing style in general are so simple, honest and touching - the funny passages as well as the sad ones.
I'm still so happy that I came across this writer in one of my courses - thanks to Mr. Gough :)
How is/was your day guys? Do you feel the same about the place you live when you go to certain spots?
Have a nice day!
