BASICS

pictures by itscohen

CITY LIFE AND OLD FRIENDS Today we are talking about basics. It's not about the perfect white blouse that's not too transparent (nude bra's are a real lifesaver btw), not about the perfect white t shirt or the perfect jeans that make your ass look aaa-mazing. Oh, and its also not about the perfect black/brown leather jacket. No. I wanna talk about the perfect turtleneck. I bought mine at Mango about a month ago and I looove it. It has the same effect as a white blouse - it makes you look fresh within a second. I have never really liked turtleneck shirts or sweaters too much but this season I got a bit obsessed as they make your look so simple and chic. Next basic garment: the perfect sweatpants. Who would have thought that I would wear sweatpants to work or just to go out? I remember when we wore them at school when it was "sweatpants-day" and I never really had a nice one cause I didn't really like them. Thank you Isabel Marant for making such a perfect pair of sweatpants that is both comfy but oh so versatile. Third basic garment: a (white) oversized blazer. You might have seen me wearing this blazer a lot because I love blazers, especially in light colors. They make you look really sophisticated ;-) The last two basics are black boots, (but we all know that) and this little bag that you can actually fold and put in every suitcase. This bag is magical. Whenever I feel like I should bring another bag with me if I go somewhere (which happened quite a lot in the past few weeks) I think of this bag as it doesn't take up any space in my suitcase. Its just perfect for travelling, and oh, perfect for this outfit as it's so simple.

Anyway, when you read this I will be on my way home from Vienna to Munich. I had such a nice weekend and it felt so good to be back in the city where I used to live. So many memories .. oh well. I had the most amazing brunch ever at my sister's and met my girls for coffee. Soo good to see all of them again, talking about the last few months and their plans for the future. I have to admit that I miss them like crazy right now. Its a lot of fun living in a city where one of your sisters lives and all of your best friends are too .. but I think I will just have to come visit them more often ;-) Also Vienna made me kinda realize that I really wanna move to a bigger city than Munich. I just miss the feeling of waking up in the morning, opening the window and seeing busy streets and colorful painted old houses haha :-) I hope you all had a lovely weekend! See you soon! xx

    Liebe Grüße!
