POSTCARD FROM VIENNA

The view from my hotelroom window. X

I have fallen hopelessly and unexpectedly in love with you. You're incredibly fiers and noble. I am completely overwhelmed by you. When I boarded the plane I didn't really know what to expect. Of course I did some research, but not much came up. Vienna is a European city often a bit overshadowed by cities like Paris, London, Berlin etc. and blows people away with its beauty and elegance. The cold weather is the only thing keeping me from awkwardly gaping at the gorgeous architecture from this city. There is so much more I could tell about the beauty and how this city makes you feel, but it would just be too much to read and write.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION

Christopher Kane black coat // Saint Laurent sunglasses // Victoria Beckham tote // Alexander Wang shoes // Isa Arfen teddy coat

Now these are all items an average student can absolutely NOT afford and only dream of, but I just couldn't help myself. Fortunately, stores like a Mango and Zara exist and try to realize our dream closets by selling that look very similar. :)

CURRENT EAR SITUATION


Having you're ears pierced is like opening a roll of Oreos or watching a new episode of Girls. Once you start you can NOT stop. I've always had a thing for dainty ear decorations anyway; they're subtile, sweet and can add a little edge without being permanent. So when I started with my first ever piercing in February this year my inner rebel showed up. I started my search for more and every possible piercing you could have in your ear. To be honest, I'm already thinking of piercing a fifth one, but something inside me tells me that my father will not be as pleased as I will be when done. On the other hand, it is not permanent and maybe I'll die soon so why not? My ears are aching for some more subtile and sweet silverware, all I need now is a great excuse to actually get it done.

FORMAL WHITE TRAINERS

Just a quick hello from me wandering around the streets in my beloved Amsterdam :).
White trainers, blue jeans, white dress shirt ... What happend to black? Not too long ago I decided I had to make a few changes to the way I dressed or differently said 'Add some color'. The term color might be overrated since it doesn't go much further than dark blue and denim, but it is color. 
Why? Not because my mother was always joking about me going to a funeral or my sister asking me if I was either going for the gothic look or dressed up to go to a fancy dinner, but because I was honestly getting bored with all the black. One thing that remains the same is that I will always dress minimalistic. I've tried the more accessories look, but that just doesn't work. Just give me a pair of black pants, denim jeans and a more extravagant one, a black leather biker jacket, a dark blue and a black sweater, a white dress shirt, trainers and black chelsea boots and I will be content for an entire season, maybe even more.
