ENG: Based on the fact, that I could not say, from where I would post my this week’s focus, I can now give information about it: At the moment I am staying in my hometown Hamburg and say this in detail because we have thought about a trip to Spain until the last weekend. However with regard to my short-term journey to Turkey in the end of this week and the fantastic weather here in Hamburg at the moment, I am glad to remain at home for a couple of days and can thus spend more quality time with family and friends. What exactly I will do in Turkey and what will await me, is part of the next „weekly focus“, in addition to that there will be several exciting projects and journeys in June and July through Europe, so you can expect multifaceted content and hopefully fascinating field reports in the near future here on the blog as well as on Instagram.

Favorites of the week:

To Do: This week is starting in a smooth mood, so that we can work on rather unspectacular themes like archiving and accounting, even for self-employed blogger it is part of the daily business. Besides my joy about the successful project planning during the last days with travel destinations like Formentera, London, Chalkidiki and Berlin, I am especially looking forward to my stay in Turkey, until then I have a few commitments. By the way, this very day you can get 20% off with the code „AylinK20“ on the whole assortment of the fashion online shop NA-KD. Check it out, it’s worth it.

New In: With regard to new achievements, I can tell you a lot. I am especially happy about my new Chloé Susanna boots in suede beige, being a cooperation product from Farfetch. Even the black version of the boots really enjoyed me, so now I am very glad about the rather summery model, that is particularly suitable for combinations with white dresses from my point of view. In addition to that I have ordered a long skirt and a plaid one shoulder dress, from Asos I got a further dress and a white colored lace skirt. Next week I will show you my new pieces from Net-A-Porter, Revolve and Mother Denim, so stay tuned.

ENG: At the moment Hamburg resembles a true summer paradise, only yesterday we had almost 30 degrees, so everywhere in the city and especially around the Alster and Elbe was pure vacation feeling. Of course at such a special day, I could not resist to choose a cool dress being an achievement from NA-KD. I emphasize this for the additional reason that many of you have already asked me via Instagram Stories about the dress‘ origin. Even today you should keep checking the IG-Story to see my shopping haul for NA-KD, in addition to that you can get 20% off with the code „AylinK20“ on the whole online shop assortment for the next 24 hours.

In order to create a stylish look with the dress, I have decided for the combination with my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer and the new Louis Vuitton „Palm Springs“ backpack. One more necklace layering from the lovely and high-quality jewelry designer „Ariane Ernst“ and then an uncomplicated and suited to daily use summer look is done, so even at high temperatures you are dressed in a stylish manner from my point of view.

ENG: Finally the weather in Hamburg is consistently good, so easy summer dresses can be grabbed from the wardrobe and worn without any problems. I am already looking forward to the season of summer dresses and its stylish combination opportunities.
Maybe you have recognized, that I stood in front of the camera last winter with Laura for the current Tom Tailor „EveryWearYouGo“ campaign and it was really a lot of fun. Today I am wearing in this context a relaxed summer dress from the collection and I have so say, that it is very comfortable and can be combined in plenty of different options. In this case I decided for an oversized used denim jacket and my new Gucci sneaker being an achievement from the London Heathrow airport. The matching color rounding of this summery and suited to daily use outfit belongs to the Valentino bag.
Have you actually noticed, that Laura and me took over the Instagram Stories account from Tom Tailor last Friday in order to show you our preferred spots in Hamburg? In keeping with the campaign’s motto „EveryWearYouGo“ we have started the day with a breakfast at the Literaturhauscafé and coffee at the Alsterperle before heading to the inner city of Hamburg. Take a look at the new collection, there are several appealing and hip pieces for this season.

ENG: It is time again for Monday, so that I would like to introduce a short weekly review as well as a preview concerning the upcoming days. For a long time we have spent a whole week in Hamburg and to be honest we have enjoyed it to the fullest. In the meantime the production of regular content and arrangement of new blog projects is part of our daily business but just now there are lots of exciting discussions with attractive brands, that make me very happy and certainly I can tell you more about it in detail pretty soon. Besides some meetings like the press breakfast at Denham last Friday, last week’s highlight was definitely our inauguration and engagement party with an incredible atmosphere and our best friends in a private context. I am still thinking about the funny evening and look already forward to the official wedding and an appropriate wedding party.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Actually we have planned to start a road trip to Italy with Mercedes-Benz in the end of this week but unfortunately we had to cancel our journey very short term, so at the moment we are thinking about to travel somewhere in Europe. Do you maybe have an insider tip for a special and recommendable place at the moment? From where I will publish my next „weekly focus“, I would not like to answer yet. ;-) For the time being we try to enjoy the summery weather in Hamburg and to further establish our new flat.

ENG: The first warmer temperatures in Hamburg have a noticeable impact, so in the meantime I reach for light outfits more and more frequently. Even if I am a huge fan of oversized sweater and thick wool coats in all variations, I am every year from anew at Spring looking forward to grab summery pieces out of my wardrobe, a phenomenon being probably very familiar to all of you. ;-)
Last year I was a huge enthusiast of tulle skirts and even this season I will be it in all probability again. In the correct mix my new Edited the Label skirt appears feminin and casual likewise, for me the skirt is not only suited to daily use but is also appropriate for more festive venues based on its very comfortable fit. In order to create a certain coolness, I have unsurprisingly chosen an oversized piece in terms of a simple and easy sweater. Based on my withdrawal symptoms in L.A., I just had to make a decision for my Gucci Princetown loafer with fur based on its perfect combination of style and comfort from my point of view. These shoes are still an eye-catcher and topic of conversation, wherever I wear them. In addition to that I totally felt in love with the small Louis Vuitton Palm Springs backpack, I have looked out for it over a period of several weeks and can now call it my own, at this point I would already like to excuse myself for the overload with the backpack in the near future. ;-)

What do you think about this look? I wish all of you a nice weekend!

ENG: The first week in Germany is over and we are already back in the daily routine, especially the final furnishing of our new flat may take a considerable time. The weather during the last days has not let us down, we had some warm Spring days and took directly the chance for shooting new outfits. Besides the planning of current and upcoming blog projects, I try to spend a lot of my current time with family and friends because they are missing out in such cases, even if they are the most important thing in real life and care for the unforgettable moments.
Even if we are just arrived from the Maldives and L.A., the European summer is already casting its shadow with some promising trips, that hold exciting content ready and guarantee summery outfits. However I am really excited about it and as a matter of course I will take you with me via Instagram and here on the blog. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: This week is definitely characterized by our new flat, we are not only continuously engaged in furnishing but also in organizing a small inauguration and engagement party for the upcoming weekend. Furthermore there are several meetings during the next days and I am already looking forward to based on my preference for the face-to-face communication with persons in charge. Besides my passion for fashion and photography, I am just loving the development of new ideas and concepts for high-quality and inspiring blog projects, in which I can simply enjoy my life. Cross your fingers and be excited, the journey continues. ;-)

Your favorite post of the weekLos Angeles focus 

New In: After a desperate search for weeks concerning the Louis Vuitton backpack „Palms Spring Mini“, I can finally call it my own. This backpack was everywhere out of stock, allegedly sold out in whole Europe, even in L.A. I looked out for it and was eventually poised to pay a much higher price than in Germany but in the end there was no single chance. Fortunately to me I have visited the online shop once again after my daily and unsuccessful search in the recent past. I really love the backpack and have no further noteworthy achievements during the last days. :-)

Have a lovely week!

You know my passion for coats in general, this time I am especially addicted to the coat’s camel pattern. The trademark of the Kate Spade NY label is the love for flashy colors, graphical prints and playful designs. The luxurious bags and accessories of the brand express vitality and combine style and fun in a particular way, for me a succeeded and very recommendable mix auf luxury and pleasure.

ENG: Long sleeves and oversized coats belong definitely to the current fashion trends, for sure these products are not necessarily part of the daily routine but it looks always very stylish and casual. I have already fallen in love with this trend and like conspicuous sleeves in any form this season, no matter if bell or trumpet shape, even as oversized product they have a high style factor from my point of view.
Recently I have got a request from style.com for discovering their popular pieces within the womenswear exclusive collection. In this context I have decided for this beautiful, grey colored hoodie as well as the classical camel coat, both products belong the brand Vetements, that is famed for its exaggerated proportions and the elevated streetwear. I have combined these products with a two tones jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as the Chanel bag.

ENG: Today I would like to introduce my first weekly focus from our new flat and it feels so great. Yesterday we have spontaneously started with the first packing cases and could already establish a rather homely atmosphere after our wooden floorboards were cultivated once again. During the next days everything will be finished and I am already looking forward to it. As soon as everything is done, I will let you know via Instagram Stories! :-)
Maybe you have recognized, that I was invited to Frankfurt over the weekend by s.Oliver in order to celebrate the launch of the brand’s new Fusion Collection. The event and fashion show were absolutely worth seeing and attractively displayed, the whole atmosphere in the festival hall was exuberant. Soon there will follow a more detailed post about it here on the blog. In addition to that I have visited a lovely friend for getting a hair refreshment and I can highly recommend her for issues concerning balayage, hair densification and cut. She is a specialist in this matters here in Hamburg, so just let me know, should you be interested in her contact data.

ENG
: Spring fever and twittering spread more and more, therefore I am increasingly choosing for aerial and colorful items of clothing. With regard to this outfit I have decided to combine my new lace up jeans from Edited the label with satin mules, a striped oversized blouse as well as a bright between-seasons coat. After a longer period of abstinence I have made a choice for the Chloé Drew bag with a Fendi strap for getting a colorful appreciation. From my point of view a suited and uninhibited combination. As you know my dress style from former outfits, I could not resist to integrate sunglasses within this look, this time in terms of a Ray Ban with blue mirrored lenses. A vernal and absolutely suited to daily use look with a high style factor from my perspective.

What do you think about this look? I wish all of you a nice and sunny start in the weekend.
