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?
Those that have ever suffered from food poisoning can probably understand what my weekend looked like. I’ll spare you the details, but let me just tell you that it was BAD! I’ve had food poisoning once before, and even though it feels like death has come to hunt you down, at least you know it can only last about 24hrs or so. Well, so I thought … on day 2 I woke up with severe swelling on my face. The doctor was called, I got 3 shots and thought I would be back to my old self by Monday morning. Not the case. Same with Tuesday. Due to the intense vomiting from Saturday I had to take in tons of salt and water to stop my body from cramping. Turns out that as someone who doesn’t usually eat much salt it was simply too much. To make a long story short: Thanks to all the salt I’ve been suffering from pretty intense swelling (water deposits) on my face and looked like THIS. Not a pretty sight. But yesterday things finally got a little better and some fresh air, pretty shoes (hello Ferragamo lovers via Sigrun Woehr) and good company were just what I needed. For those first days of recovery, easy flats, a simple shirt and jeans are always a safe bet, right?
As much as I love my patterns (seen HERE), there is also something special and comforting about monochrome items. I love a piece that is bold in color but simple in terms of the cut or pattern – usually because those items are the most versatile and work with a lot of other items in my closet! I was recently introduced to the brand Laurèl, which may not be my typical destination for shopping, but their monochrome pieces are definitely craving-worthy for the summer and absolutely timeless. The do lots of patterned items, but they also do the simple monochrome pieces, which I love. For example the green silk blouse would easily work with a pair of destroyed denim for a day at the beach, but also with black skinny jeans, a statement necklace and heels for the next date night. For the warmer season I always love to venture away from the typical black/gray/white scale and add a bit of color to my closet. Which of these pieces is your favorite?
Weekends are all about comfort and ease. I love spending the day at our apartment, getting a few things done, meeting up with friends for mid-afternoon drinks (totally appropriate on a Saturday, right?) and taking an occasional afternoon nap. For those easy weekends my favorite combination is simple: distressed jeans, oversized white blouse and a touch of leo (as always…). I’ve been slightly obsessed with One Teaspoon denim lately (see my shorts HERE) and ordered these Trashed Freebirds via Zalando a few weeks ago. They have an amazing One Teaspoon selection – which is pretty rare to find in Europe as the brand is from Australia.
