The past 3 weeks have gone by in the blink of an eye, but at the same time it feels like ages ago that I had my last day at my old job. I’ve been on the go non-stop, got on 6 flights and packed/unpacked my suitcase 4 times. Coming home always feels good, but traveling is my passion and I am so thankful for all the places I got to see and explore these past 3 weeks. Amongst them, the quaint little Montreux in French Switzerland. Last week I spent 2 days at Montreux Jass Festival with Parmigiani Fleurier and it was simply amazing! We had so much fun with the girls (Anna, Sylvia & Julia), lunched by the pool, saw Van Morrison live (!!) and got to explore the history of the brand Parmigiani Fleurier, which was SO impressive.
As you guys know, I am a sucker for statement pieces, such as a good animal print or a big glitzi necklace. However, lately I’ve found myself drawn towards simpler looks and more delicate items. Knuckle rings, thin necklaces or lace bralets – this Summer I am in love with the little details. Details can be anything from really dainty jewelry, a pretty pattern, a bra peeking out from under a summery top or the perfect shade of blush pink for bag and sunnies. This week I have 2 major crush items on my cravings list: That gorgeous bra by Triumph from their collection by Helena Christensen (which will be available in Fall) and the small Antigona by Givenchy, which has seriously stolen my heart in that color. What are your summer must-haves?
The Birkenstock discussion is one that definitely polarizes, but I have officially joined team comfort and ordered my first pair of “Madrid” Birkenstocks a few weeks ago. I’ve mostly been wearing them around the neighborhood to run errands (SO comfortable), but also started wearing them more and more with my daily looks. I guess once you go birks you can’t go back … Do you guys own any slides? Or do you think it is a no-go?
As promised in yesterday’s post, today I am sharing my total Marc Cain look for the event in Berlin. We each got to browse the collection and choose whatever we wanted. I’ve been drawn to the idea of light, airy palazzo pants for quite a while now and think they are a great item to own, especially for Summer. To dress down the pants a bit I paired them with a simple striped blouse, which I also can’t wait to wear with some denim cut offs. Rather than statement accessories I decided to go with delicate rings and a tiny heart necklace by Minissimo and really bold lips in a bright pink. I am so happy with how everything turned out and felt super comfortable all day. How do you guys like the look?
