playing tourist

Hi guys!

Remember when I told you about the city Bonn the other day? Well, I went there again today because of another appointment at the university hospital. Last time I promised you and myself to bring my camera to the next Bonn trip because it's such a beautiful place, so this time I really took a few photos (see further below) for you guys so you can see where I bang around from time to time ;)

dress: joe brown's via ebay, cardi: vintage, belt: h&m, scarf + bag + tights: accessorize, boots: bullboxer, jacket: zara

I finally took some outfit pics again aswell, it feels really good to dress to leave the house after this one week of bed rest! I absolutely had to wear my new dress so today was a good opportunity. I've had an eye on the dress at Ebay for months, there's a seller who offers the dress in different colours and sizes, but somehow I never won the auctions...until last week :) Now I got it and I'm so in love with it, the colours and pattern and cut are just perfect for me.

Alright, now here are some impressions of Bonn's pretty city centre:

one of the several old churches

Bonn is the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven, they had these exhibition on the market square

the historic post office

some shopping streets there are roofed by these big trees which looks very nice

Beethoven street art

and this is Beethoven's house of birth

they renovate the front of the town hall at the moment

Some weird head sculpture lying around on a place (you see the people were pretty amazed haha)

Well, these are only some few impressions of what I saw today, there are lots of palaces and a beautiful botanical garden that I didn't visit because it would have been quite a march ;) Maybe if I go there next time.
Besides the sightseeing I also stopped by some shops to see if I could find something nice and... of course I found something. Sigh, it lies in the women's genes to always find something no matter if you need it or not:

A locket necklace and an owl brooch, oh Six has such a nice fall collection.

I snatched these cute shoes in a thrift shop and the tote bag at H&M.

Wow, pretty long post today, I hope you like all the photos and what I had to tell.

Have a great weekend! :)

now playing: eliza doolittle - pack up
