Spring? It might not seem that way exactly because the sun hasn’t been out in two weeks and it’s been raining constantly – taking a try on subtropics right now – but Summer is just around the corner. Since Spring has been the little brother of a too long Winter – body shapes are taking a loooooong way to go back into Summer-mode.
I always have and always will be a big supporter of the boyfriend look. It had a different name growing up with two brothers: being the second in line wearing the grown-out stuff from a way taller person for the next years. Some clothes, I never grew out of and kept them for a long time until the return of skinny. But I soon got tired of skinny – it just isn’t my everyday favorite. Let’s take a closer look at the varieties of the BOYFRIEND STYLE.
The boyfriend jeans / pants:
Beanie-style was seen everywhere season FW 12/13:

If I could live in them – I would. Dungarees are just the best for occasions such as the weekends, festivals or any other lazy fun day. They scream at me whenever I see one: TAKE ME, I AM COMFORTABLE! Here is a selection of some stylish examples that will allow you to leave the house in them – and not just to go to the bakery around the corner.
The Reformation, Capri Jumper, made from repurposed vintage denim.
Always a great place to find denim dungarees: vintage stores and flea markets.

I got an early birthday wish: Earcuffs by Ryan Storer. The majority of his collection may be sold out but a few pieces are still left – I REALLY want these!!! Rosegold, crystal and pearls – what an amazing combination!

These days I am all about making my home my castle. It took a while to get to a point where it looks like a home but I am not a fan of buying something I might live with for the next years to come just because I need it. Because when does one ever NEED things? (The bed excluded – am a big fan of comfortable sleep.) So even if I used to keep it simple – things just keep coming my way and the decor becomes more and more important to me. I recently stumbled upon an older post of Honestly…WTF. Outdated classroom maps, may it be biology, chemistry or geography, appear to bring a certain nostalgia and bohemia to the home without the kitsch. Does anybody know where to get one?

Remember me? Once a blogette – suddenly disappeared? Yes, that’s me. I haven’t felt much inspiration lately to share any content. And I must admit, I disappeared to a new thing called Pinterest. (Feel the irony?)
But I recently (about 2 years ago) fell in love with this Kreuzberg-based (furniture) designer called Sigurd Larsen. (With his designs that is.) His designs are sublime and minimalistic. He owns the mixture of concrete and wood. As i am in no position to articulate the beauty of his works properly, I’ll simply give you a little taste of it.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do – and PLEASE be gently. This is my first entry in months.

You are someone else
I am still right here
Quiet? Me? Yes. I haven’t blogged much lately but here is a quickie before I return to writing more updates on what happened in these past gazillion years.
If you happen to be in Berlin these days, don’t miss the Levi’s XX stock sale – the prices for the premium brands represented are simply too good to pass on the opportunity. The only thing you need is something similar to a sample size or another extreme… no probs, correct? #summerapproaching
This must have taken a day’s work but these braids with rings look so effortless that I would love to try it some time.

Long tome no read…I know.
I woke up this morning like any other day thinking about my sweet little blog and how little time I have to share some of my favorite finds on the net. I had a few thoughts lately about things I had observed on the streets but when should I write about them? I have one month of excessive travelling ahead of me (I’ll try to keep you posted on them.) and it’s not getting any easier with my job (which I do love!). In fact, I have to thank my hectic schedule for today’s blogpost because I am working (Yes, it’s a Sunday) and while I was at it I found this beautiful image of Swedish singer Lykke Li which I wanted to share with you.
Her winter comfort styling, the smooth coloring and the carefree look on her face made me love it immediately. Winter melancholy at its best. Powerful, isn’t it?
