quality time

Hi guys!

How is your start of the week? I hope you all had a nice Monday so far - well at least as nice as a Monday can be, right?
Again I'm a bit behind with posting my stuff, that's why today you'll see the photos of Saturday when I was able to spend some time with my Mum.
We plan our mother-daughter-days every little once in a while because although we don't live far away from each other we hardly have time to meet regularly. But we talk on the phone a lot to compensate this ;)
Anyway, here's what I wore:

♥ blazer: amisu ♥ shirt: swapped ♥ skirt: h&m ♥ belt: new yorker ♥ shoes: görtz ♥ bag: ebay ♥

This skirt has become one of my new favourite pieces. Hm, I said this a lot lately, no? It's because the sales had so many pretty things waiting for me! Anyway, so this skirt is not from the sale. I had bought it before for the normal price, 9,95 Euro which is okay, but then I resented that they marked it down to 3 Euro after I got it, boo.
Long story short: I love this skirt nevertheless! Perfect length and shape, elastic band at the waist (hello comfortableness), supercute florals, well perfect!
I also got a feeling that these shoes will become summer staples too. They're made of genuine leather and were marked down to 30 Euro, pretty awesome for me because I have this price limit of 50 Euro for shoes. Chintzy me...

Okay, back to the quality time with Mum. We had a lovely afternoon in the old town together, including cake, shopping and pizza. Yep, give us food and shopping and we're completely satisfied. Simple people are happy with simple things ;)

However I have to warn you! We went to this new little café called Dulce to test it and oh my God was it horrible there! If you guys ever happen to be in Düsseldorf please go to Häagen-Dasz or Starbucks instead:

Don't let the pretty design fool you, I tell you it's deceiving!
We went in, sat down, looked around and thought "Cute interior." and then we looked at the tables and all of them had several dead fruit flies laying about, eeew... Can't they clean the tables?
At first sight the interior looks nice but at second sight you can see that everything's a bit dingy.
Anyway, I had a gift card so we stayed to try the cake.

Again, don't let the photos fool you! They really do look delicious, BUT they were not delish at all. My raspberry-coconut crumble was so sour that I couldn't even eat it up. And Mum's cherry-almond crumble looked soft and yummy but was hard and dry and hard to chew either.
These cakes looked so good! What a bummer! And furthermore the waiter was totally spaced out and unkind, we simply didn't feel well there. When I told him I wa sstill waiting for a coffee he was like "Oh but I think you already got it." Eehm, no? I wouldn't tell him it's missing if I'd already have it! Gosh...

However the last ray of hope for me is their ice cream. We didn't try it on Saturday but I'll go back and spend the rest of my gift card on their "cookies and cream" and "mango sorbet" soon. I hope it won't be a bummer too...
But apart from this Dulce café, Mum and I had a blast shopping and munching pizza afterwards :)

Here's what I got:

My mum is so awesome, she bought me this adorable dress for my Budapest trip!

And these lovely necklaces too!

And I bought this pretty shirt with bikes on it and a dotted scarf.

Here's what my Mum got:

A pretty summer dress...

... and this casual combo of which I love the colour of the blouse so much!

And here's the delicious PizzaHut "Garden Lovers" we got in the evening ;)

Aw it was such a wonderful day :)
I love to spend time with my Mum, she's the best!
Do you guys spend some time alone with your Mum every now and then as well?

Happy Monday!

I hate it when that happens about a new place! My mom and I tried out a new cafe a while back and got a coffee and a cupcake, it was t.e.r.r.i.b.l.e! Except we actually spent our money instead of having a gift card :/.

    That dress and those accessories: TO DIE FOR! Love love love love love love love.
