Marine Deleeuw for Styleby Magazine June 2015

pictures via www.photos-demode.com

I´ve never saw tailored suits and classic suit elements better combined 
as in this story styled by Alexandra Carl for Styleby Magazine. 
I really appreciate her playful use of proportions and silhouettes
 always with an eye for a special detail like an oversize cut, drapes or XXL-buttons. 
It doesn´t need much for these stunningly puristic looks and that´s the key - 
less is sometimes definitely more!

Colour Crush

This colour becomes to be the epitome of this summer in my view. 
This beautiful warm orangy brick-red colour crosses my way wherever I go and
 lets me deviate from my habitual colour comfort zone.
I can really well imagine a combination with navy blue and beige. 
What do you think about this vibrant colour?
I´ve already bought a simple linen shirt from H&M to begin in a small way
 but the assortment is, of course, unlimited at the moment.

These are just some of my current cravings:

Sunday Catch

You cannot believe how happy I was finding this little fig tree this weekend at 
´Der Holländer Berlin´ (my top recommendation for tricky plant wishes). 
Since I saw this kind of plant on several interior sites I was looking for my own one for ages, 
still without any result until this weekend. By the advice of a nice florist 
I´ve finally found the right place to get my hands on my long-sought fig tree. 
Ever since I´m so satisfied when passing by my little friend embellishing my window board. 
Can´t wait for my very first fig yield in a few years time.

Isabel Marant Étoile Fall/Winter 2015

pictures via www.isabelmarant.com

No summer in sight in Berlin right now. 
Slowly I´m getting tired of this in between weather and rather stay at home 
exploring the upcoming Fall/Winter collections. 
One of my favs is Isabel Marant Étoile with its easy urban chic with its typically cool laissez-faire attitude. 
I might should get out my blazers and try to style these outfits, 
which are absolutely suiting to the current weather situation in Germany. 
I´m so in love with this last blazer-skirt combination with this super cool hat! 
This is probably going to be my inspiration for my next outfit.

Perfect Pair

Navy blue and cognac brown is just a perfect match in my opinion.
 Consequently, this stripy tunic from Totême and these snake leather slippers
 from Gianvito Rossi is my dream-look for a weekend getaway to the countryside. 
A white bikini or swimsuit beneath and you´re also ready for a day on the beach. 
In this sense happy weekend!

 Last weekend my mum and I went treasure hunting on the flea market
 whilst she was visiting me for the weekend. 
We had such a lovely time together and I´ve finally got the ice cream I was searching for so long - 
one of my highlights of the day! I´ve also got these cute little ethnic bracelets, 
which were hand made by a girl, who was selling her jewelry creations at the Mauerpark flea market.
My everyday companions since then.

Hair Inspiration

I´m a huge fan of loose messy braids especially for summer time. 
Michael Kors provides my absolute go-to hair look for this season! 
Really easy and quick to do and also makeable for those hair style experts like me, 
who are rather untalented when it comes to create a fancy hair style.

The Row Resort 2016

pictures via www.style.com

Key piece of The Row Resort collection 2015 is obviously the unstructured coat, 
which is featured on almost every look. 
The Olsen twins show up the manifold opportunities of 
creating a look out of a timeless floor-long coat - either combined with some suit pants and sandals 
or worn as a dress tied up with a waist belt - the possibilities are unlimited. 
Tonal matchings are the easiest and most powerful way to create this timeless look.
Style.com got the full lookbook of inspirations.

Sale Findings

Sale season started already and some of my favourite online shops 
are tempting  with some really good price reductions, 
which let my good resolutions break down from time to time. 
I´ve gathered all these sweet temptations in the hope that you´re faster than me 
in order that it becomes easier for me to make a decision, which one I should get.

Weekend Inspiration

Andreea Diaconu looks amazingly relaxed and cheerful
 in her latest story for Porter Magazine shot by Cass Bird. 
This picture is my favourite even it is hard to decide at all.
She is really enjoying herself at the pool - not really hard with this view indeed 
- but it is exactly what you should do now if you have not already done so!
Happy Sunday!

Interior Crush

pictures via pinterest.com and hm.com

I know, Beni Ourian is a household name for most of you. 
But the fact of the matter is that, when I´m hooked on something
 I need to share it with somebody immediately. And maybe, there are still people out there 
who don´t know these amazingly pretty carpets yet and discover them for the first time here on my blog. 

The characteristical thing about these Moroccon beauties is  the natural hand-woven 
wool with its typical diamond-pattern, which can come in different versions -
only one thing it needs to be and that is fluffy! 
Of course, these quality comes at a price but H&M offers a quite good lookalike (right model) at the moment, 
which is unfortunately not that fluffy but comes with this characteristical diamond-pattern, which I´m currently really obsessed with.
Who would not like having such a beauty in its living room?

Current Favourites

Do you know this feeling when you buy something and want to wear it immediately 
but the weather is just not warm enough? 
My anticipation has thus become ever greater week after week and now
it is finally warm enough to take these black beauties out for a walk.

Best of Summer Dresses

Last week was finally warm enough to wear bare legs for the first time this year.
I found it quite hard to decide what to wear after such a long time of dressing myself up well.
 I went for a short and shirt combination but also realized a lack of pretty dresses in my wardrobe. 
This was reason enough to look arounf the shops for
 potential summer companions and these ones made it onto my wishlist:

Chloe Resort 2016

pictures via www.style.com

A collection with contrasts which could hardly be more extreme. 
On one side typical fairylike and maidenly fussy and 
on the other side animal prints and boyish silhouettes. 
Clare Waight Keller creates a model of femininity which doesn´t fit into a classic scheme,
 but rather does and wears whatever her pleases. Thanks Chloé for this hidden message!

New in

Last week my first pair of (wedge) heeled summer sandals moved into my wardrobe.
Alltogether only the third pair of high-heeled shoes, because normally 
I just feel saver and more comfy to wear flat heels. 
These espadrilles wedges from Office were just so beautiful that I felt like 
I need to leave my comfort zone and dare it. 
As they arrived I was so excited like I wasn´t in a long time. 
I tried them on and was really surprised how good they feel. 
Until now, I wasn´t able to wear them considerable time but I can already now imagine 
wearing them all summer long with dresses, skirts and everything else in my wardrobe.
You can get them here in white or similar here

This girl is always amazingly good looking! 
Of course, it´s her job as a model but I think, there are only a few of them, 
who inspiring me in every single editorial in the same way. 
Is it maybe her special face or her cheerful charisma, I don´t know. 
This story, captured by Angelo Pennetta for Vogue China, 
makes me feel really inspired for today. I hope you, too!
