Everybody who knows me, knows that I have a weakness for everything made of bouclé or tweed. I fell in love with this fabric when I was about twelve and despite my older sisters aversion, my mum got me every jacket I wanted (as long as it was in the budget of course). We always went shopping together and whenever I picked another boucle blazer they thought it looked absolutely dreadful, which made me want it even more. Now I still love them to pieces, but since this is a fashion blog and a variety of clothes is expected, I tend to only show you my latest additions.
So, here's a warm welcome to the family to this little green boucle jacket!
The fabric was lying around in my apartment for over a year since I had no time and idea what to do with it. In the end it turned out to be a pretty basic jacket with patch pockets and a wide lapel but I love it! Green is usually not my cup of tea but in combination with yellow and creme it works well with my blonde hair. Furthermore, I could not make any button holes since the cloth is too thick for my sewing machine, so I usually style it with a leather belt which makes it look more modern and less grandma-ish. My love for cropped jeans is still strong and in combination with boots and a turtleneck it is probably the best fall/winter outfit when you're in a hurry and have no time to think about what to wear.
The boyfriend and I had another great day yesterday, as we went to see an exhibition about Marylin Monroe for her 90th anniversary at gallery Hiltawsky in Berlin Mitte. Afterwards we got coffee and strolled around a flea market in Charlottenburg until it was too cold to stay outside. If you're ever in Berlin, make sure to check out Schwarzes Café for either drinks or food, it's usually pretty crowded but soo good! xx
