Recently I’ve found a whole new appreciation for simplicity. Denim and an oversized white linen shirt or black skinny jeans and a silky blouse are all I need to feel comfortable and confident. However, when I head out the door I always like to add a little something special. Whether it is a pair of leo flats, a pretty statement necklace or a super cute clutch with a little crystal bug on it – I feel like it instantly makes the outfit complete! On Tuesday Kathi and I were busy doing taxes for The Daily Dose (umm not very glamorous) but for a quick coffee run I decided to take the pretty Wilbur & Gussie “Charlie Oyster Silk Clutch” out for a spin – another amazing sale find on GIRISSIMA.com at -70% off!
Recently I have been getting a lot of questions regarding my skin care. And while I am super lucky in terms of impurities and break-outs, my skin is still far from perfect. Due to the fact that I have eczema, I have super dry skin (it gets better during summer). Back in February I had an appointment with my dermatologist and she suggested trying a moisturizing urea lotion from the pharmacy. Now, admittedly it isn’t the prettiest bottle and it doesn’t smell wonderful (no scent at all actually) or sound very appealing, but it has worked wonders for my skin and gives it the perfect amount of necessary moisture. So currently, my skin care routine is very basic, but it seems to work well and I don’t plan on changing it anytime soon!
When the weather gets hot in the city, I usually like to wear maxi dresses or skirts for meetings and appointments – but this year it’s all about the palazzo pants for me. In all honesty, I never thought of myself as a “palazzo girl”, but ever since I wore the look for the first time during fashion week in Berlin I just can’t get enough. Palazzo pants are so versatile and a really good light and airy option for hot summer days. I wore this ensemble for a business lunch a while ago and felt appropriately dressed without having to break a sweat. Do you guys like or own palazzo pants?
During my stay in Berlin for Fashion Week, I met up with the amazing video-team of EDITED.de to shoot a fun project for you guys. Since I’ve been traveling a lot lately, I’ve been trying to optimize my packing skills. Especially when I only go places for 2 days, I prefer to travel with just a carry-on; it saves a lot of time at the airport and forces you to pack smart. For those occasions, I love pieces that are versatile, such as a simple black jersey dress, which works for meetings, some casual sight seeing and even a night out on the town. Simply change up the jacket, shoes and accessories and you’re set for whatever your trip may bring. To give you a better idea of how you could style a simple dress we shot a short video in Berlin – hope you guys like it!
