Bits of my life

28 Jun 2012

Hi there sweeties!

I don't know about you, but today I have enjoyed my last day of vacation to the fullest! Tomorrow I'm starting my summer job as shop assistant at Etam Lingerie, so the days of lazyness - walking around in pyjamas till 2 in the afternoon, watching 6 episodes of Grey's Anathomy in one day or just spend the entire day baking yummy cakes and cookies - are officially over! So here's what I did today...

I read in my fresh issue of Feeling (a magazine where I might be doing my intership next year, I have an interview there next week).

I drank a glass of orange juice with ice cubes on the terrace while scribbling in my sketchbook. Unfortunately is was really too hot to stay in the sun all day.

I wore my sunny yellow skirt, with a H&M studded bracelet.

And I enjoyed the beautiful tulips I got from my dearest friend at my housewarming party last weekend.

What are your favourite ways of enjoying a lazy day?


Looklove: The knit

25 Jun 2012


Oversized knitted sweaters are such a perfect  basic. I adore how this fair lady styled hers with some printed pants and clutch. I'm all for the different shades white thing too by the way.
I think today I will be doing some online sale shopping and maybe pick up a perfect white knit like this one!

I whish you all a very happy week ;)


Moi: Sky and Sand

21 Jun 2012

Shirt and belt: H&M, Pants: Zara, Sandals: NafNaf, Necklace: Six

I wore this outfit to a bbq with friends, so it really has nothing to do with sky and sand, but the color scheme just reminded me of it. Plus my boyfriend told me I looked Saint-Tropez chic in it - not that he has only the slightest idea what he's talking about when it comes to fashion, but hey!

Anyhow, my exams are finally over, so I'm enjoying the blissfull ignorance of not knowing wether I will have to resit some of them in august or not and the liberty to do what I want, which is mainly just being lazy ;)


Bits of my life: Yay for birthday presents!

14 Jun 2012

Guten Tag my dearest Freunde!

Birthdays always seem to pass way to quickly (I mean who would want a day where everyone is nice to you, sends you loads of text messages and gives you presents ever to end?) and I can't believe it's already been a week since mine! Luckily I can still cherish and enjoy all the lovely gifts I got...

A new lens from my boyfriend (I haven't stopped taking pictures since I got it - no, I mean I litterary haven't stopped!)

What's on your whishlist? And do you like to get presents you chose yourself or do you prefer them to be a surprise?


Looklove: Northern Light

11 Jun 2012

First let me say that I find the style of Hedvig of Northern Light totally adorbs! She always manages to dress so casual yet distinguished. I also think she has a gorgeous face and great hair. Today I'm especcially diggin' this look, because it is summery yet cosy. You see the weather here is still trying to decide wether summer or fall is the season we're in. Therefore jeans are a great option if you don't want to freeze off your knees, but the ikat print gives them a lovely sunny touch. Add up a cosy, woolly jumper in the season's most popular colour: mint, some shiny shoes for your daily dose of glamour and some sunnies to pretend that the sun is shining, et voilà!

The jeans Hedvig is wearing are from Current/Elliot, the sandals are Wang and the jumper is from Acne, but I found some great cheaper alternitives should you care to try the look without pillaging your creditcard ;)


Sweater and Jeans from Topshop, Heels and clutch from Zara, Sunnies from Ray-Ban

Now dears, I'd love to talk some more shopping, but I'm afraid it's time for some Deutsche Grammatik now! #sosickofexams!!!


Bits of my life: Hallway

5 Jun 2012


As promised: another peek in my lovely new home! This time I'm showing you around in the Hallway, which just turned into my favourite room since my beau hung up this gorgeous vintage mirror I got from him a few years ago. You can also get a glimpse of our stairs which are painted petal pink. The shoe closet and coat rack are both from Ikea.
