ohio is for lovers







Hi guys!

Two days of not blogging, jeans-and-shirt-looks and boring office work have passed. Drab weather and a lack of sunlight contributed to my murky mood. I love winter and cold weather but I can't live without sunlight, I need at least a little bit each day. These sunny but icy winterdays are the best.
Anyway, it's Wednesday and I'm already looking forward to the weekend. It's going to be a food weekend because we're invited to two birthday dinners, one evening to a Russian restaurant and one evening to a Greek one. Yummy :)




♥ cardi: gina tricot ♥ dress & tights: h&m ♥ skirt: thrifted ♥ belt: new yorker ♥ boots: vintage via ebay ♥




I'm also starting to plan our short trip to Berlin. It's so funny that I used to be the most spontaneous person I know when I was younger and that I'm the complete opposite now. Well, I'm still spontaneous - but not when it comes to trips. There are so many things I need to keep in mind: to pack my bag I'll have to check the weather forecast, then I'll have to restock the medicine for all the little ailments I got, I'll need to buy a proper camera bag, I'll have to prepare a comfortable but socially acceptable outfit for the 8 hours bus drive...
Sounds like crappy wannabe-problems, I know. But like I said: lack of spontaneity. I'm quirky ;)

Oh and I really need to google some cool places/shops/bars/whatever to visit in Berlin. I've been to Berlin in the past but the last time I was 14 and couldn't do anything.
Does anyone of you have some Berlin go-tos for me?








Today's outfit is what happened when I wanted to try out my new tights this morning. I built the outfit around the tights because I find their colour a bit tricky - pretty but tricky. According to H&M it's a cognac-brown but it looks rather orange-brown to me and I actually hate orange. Nevertheless it's still brownish enough to not hate it. Did I mention I'm quirky?!
Oh and my beloved Pocahontas boots! Haven't worn them for so long, but I love them so much! I'll definitely release them from their wardrobe confinement as soon as it's getting warmer.
How do you like the cardi with the tights? Nice contrast, no?

Alright then, that's all for today.
Hope you had a nice week so far?


Have a great day!

  5. Kann es sein, dass wir heute die selben strumofhosen anhatten? :D Ich poste morgen mal mein outfit (heute kam erst das von gestern dran) und dann siehst du das :D ein sehr schöner kommentar dazu war: "Hast du zu viele karotten gegessen?" haha
    Die haben ja alle keine ahnung, die leute ^^ also ich finde die sehr schön wie du dir denken kannst und ich denke auch, dass du die sehr gut kombiniert hast! Das kleid passt perfekt und auf versch. rottöne (thights/cardi) steh ich eh in letzter zeit! TOP!

  8. Love your dress, the pattern is so, so cute! I've just come back from Berlin and would say definitely go to Tacheles, the artists' squat, the East Side Gallery, the streets around Prenzlauer Berg and if you're there on a sunday, head to the flea market by Mauer Park. For bars, there are lots of nice ones around Friedrichshain (around Grunbergerstr.) xx

  10. This outfit is very Edge of Love, nothing better than a floral dress and cardigan if you ask me!
    I can really understand you on the spontaniety thing, I'm the same when it comes to going anywhere because I like to be prepared. I mean, I can't even just go to the shops without checking the weather (because this is how I decide what to wear!) so there you go :P
