HASHTAG YOLO.

IMG_8943 IMG_8893 IMG_8957 Kopie IMG_8934 Kopie IMG_8902 Kopie2

NEW YORKER shirt, checkered shirt (men´s dept.) & jeans
THE RAGGED PRIEST beanie
CHOIES mirrored sunglasses
ALEXANDER WANG rocco bag
SAM EDELMAN boots

it´s not a secret that i am... old.. in 3 years, i will hit the dreaded 3-0 mark. eek.
anyway, i don´t know what, where and how you cool kids these days roll but when my twitter & instagram timeline were suddenly filled with the hashtag YOLO, can´t help but really feel old.
granny here didn´t get it.
i had to honestly google to understand.
i don´t know if i can still pull this swag (another term that was very puzzling to me) off but You indeed Only Live Once, so why the hell not?

BANG BANG.

IMG_9812 Kopie IMG_9794 Kopie IMG_9834 IMG_9837 Kopie IMG_9847 Kopie IMG_9825 Kopie
black pistol boots, electric blue pistol boots (color exclusive to my-wardrobe.com), collage shirt and music top: all ACNE 

i can write you a novel about my love affair with these pistol boots (or with this brand actually) but i will spare you that.
it doesn´t happen so often that i spend hard earned 400 bucks on the same shoes let alone the same color.
but tell you what, i am no shoe expert or something (if there´s ever such a thing), these boots are the most comfortable (wear them at work for 9 hours straight), best quality (shoes are still intact after 3 years of constant wear without getting the soles fixed), coolest & add your superlatives here shoes i have ever set my feet into.
so as imelda marcos said: if the shoe fits, buy it. THRICE, i did.

LASERCUT.

COS shirt
MUUBAA 'tureis' jacket
HALLHUBER jeans
ACNE boots
RAY BAN aviators

okay, somehow the words leather jacket and pretty should never come up in one sentence because when i think about leather jackets i think about rock and roll, kate moss and pete doherty..
 but never say never, oui?
because this intricate, buttery soft, laser cut sleeved jacket is really pretty as it is cool.
so hitting two birds with one stone, right?
i love pieces that don´t need anything else except some skinnies & basic shirts (read: my everyday uniform).

<irony> anyway, have a great freezing tuesday guys! </irony>

GO CLASSIC OR GO HOME.

BRUUNS BAZAAR neoprene top 
PAIGE DENIM waxed skinnies
TIBI tweed coat via EMEZA.DE
RAG&BONE hat
MICHAEL KORS watch
ZARA pumps

i don´t know about you but my search for the perfect everything is slowly coming to an end.
remember this post on my elusive quest for the perfect basics?
add these newbies to my closet: the perfect striped top, the perfect fitting black jeans and the perfect spring coat (not that spring´s coming this year anyway).
these are wardrobe staples that i keep on buying but was never really satisfied.
i thought i found the best black jeans from cheap monday, but after washing them a LOT, they are now grey-ish instead of black.
i decided to invest, just for once and see for myself if quality really does equal dollars.
unfortunately the equation is indeed true.
PLEASE PROVE ME IF I AM WRONG.

BOUCLE.

HALLHUBER boucle jacket & shorts
ZARA silk shirt
NELLY pumps
H&M hat

good morning guys!
how´s your weekend so far?
mine has been very domestic so far.
staying in, baking with miguel, homecooked meals, emptying my luggage that has been laying around for months now and doing the laundry.
feels so good to finally do something productive!
anyway, if someone told me that they will see me wearing an outfit so demure like this (and in neon) i would have probably laughed out loud but here we are!
loving the chanel feel in this outfit, only missing are my pearls and quilted purse.

hey guys!
as i mentioned on monday, 10 bloggers were flown to London for the My-Wardrobe´s Style Summit.
we were each assigned a trend, and though out of my comfort zone, i was really happy about my trend: SUMMER SKINS (check out my picks on the trend). fell in love with this gorgeous Alexis Barell "cowboy" jacket. 
we were housed in the beautiful St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel and we were dolled up by Bobbi Brown.
the event was like an excerpt from every girl´s dream. "locked" inside a HUGE closet with all the clothes & shoes you´ve ever wished for, good music, food and of course nice people to chat with!

SAL.

vintage levis shorts
RAYBAN wayfarers

hello guys!
it´s so hard for me to fathom that we shot these pictures last week before i left for london.
i was wearing shorts & a thin jacket.
i thought it was a wonderful spring start. we all thought it was.
it has stopped snowing here in my town but these pictures are so irrelevant right now.
even the sunglasses are making a laughing stock out of me.
can we just imagine that i am somewhere in brazil having a cheeky vacation?
that might work.

hello guys! 
so sorry for the lack of updates here in the weekend. as i told you on last´s post, My-Wardrobe.com has invited me to London for a Style Summit with 9 other bloggers!
such a funny coincidence: when i landed, a reader tweeted me that she saw me on Elle UK so i quickly bought the magazine in the airport and well, hello... two page feature about my blog together with Susie Bubble and Tamu Mcpherson. YESSA!

anyway, we stayed in the most amazing St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel overlooking the King´s Cross International Station. 
i got assigned a trend for Spring/ Summer and my job was to style an outfit around it. 
i had an amazing time catching up with blogger friends and also meeting new ones. i finally met Rumi who was the reason why i started blogging anyway. 
BUT THE BEST THING ABOUT THE WHOLE TRIP WAS:
i got to spend 3 days with my mom whom i last saw three years ago.
so thank you again my-wardrobe for the great three days in london!
hope to be back soon!!
