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.

New In: I have found my absolute dream dress in terms of the fit, material and color, in addition to that I am now owning a playful kimono from Free People. For the new flat in return we have got a new lamp from Kartell, a grey colored cowhide, an table book by Helmut Newton as well as a rose colored velvet couch for our winter garden.

Have a lovely week!

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!

ENG: Back in Germany I could unpack my new delivery from Kate Spade NY with great joy based on this amazing oversized coat and the pink colored Isobel bag. 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.
I am combining these pieces with a white colored blouse, a ripped jeans as well as my beloved Chanel Slingback pumps as color-coordinated match with the coat. The conspicuous bag screams for Spring and happiness and has also the perfect size for daily use – love it! :-)

What do you think about this look? Do you know the brand Kate Spade NY?

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. At style.com you can find a variety of fancy and special pieces, the homepage exhibits a huge style and fashion character, so that it is getting more and more my preferred inspiration and shopping source.

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.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Hard to believe but this week we will finally head to the Maldives and my pleasant anticipation is huge by now. Until then, we will try to furnish our flat as far as possible for enjoying the Maldives paradise to the full. As you know it from previous trips, I will take you with me via my different Social Media channels.

New In: Before heading to the Maldives, I have got this beautiful beach jacket. Furthermore I have ordered these statement earrings at Mango as well as this blouse at Mango. Unfortunately I have sinned at mytheresa in terms of this amazing, nude colored mules from Prada but this also means: Now all we need is the Spring! :-)

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.

ENG: A rather unspectacular week in Hamburg is over now. There were indeed some interesting meetings but the focus was definitely on dealing with the annoying accounting paperwork, pushing ahead our upcoming move as well as preparing the last matters for our next, exciting journey. At this point there is in fact nothing more worth mentioning but you can be sure, that with the final move and two overseas trips during the next weeks there will be waiting a lot of fascinating content for you, here on the blog as well as on my further Social Media channels – promise! :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: Even this week is once again dominated by the new flat because we have still to make some final decisions before we can realize the move during the next days. At the weekend we will also head to Frankfurt with s.Oliver in order to celebrate the brand’s new Fusion Collection. Have a look on Instagram Stories and Facebook next Saturday in order to be part of the collection’s presentation, the Fashion Show as well as the Aftershow Party with a special guest. Everything else in the context of the new s.Oliver collection will follow in the course of this week. ;-)

New In: Last week I have got the new Karl Lagerfeld bag in blue. In addition to that I have ordered a silver colored vinyl pants with the perfect fit for me, a new bikini as well as a beautiful white colored skirt. Nevertheless my highlight last week was the arrival of my so beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in rose metallic (similar here), this time even with my own initials „A.K.“. I have composed the loafer at the DIY-Gucci-Program three months ago and I am so happy now with the final result.

ENG: Besides statement sleeves, one shoulder blouses are kind of a must-have this Spring season. Therefore I was pretty happy as I could find this great top. Based on the sunny weather in Hamburg at the moment, I have dressed up myself springlike this time. I am wearing my new one shoulder blouse with a bright Jeans from Closed as well as with my beloved, gold colored Gucci Marmont shoes. The red-hued Dolce & Gabbana bag as an achievement from Net-A-Porter, is the perfect matching in color within this look and a more than succeeded rounding of the outfit from my point of view.

ENG: I have spent my last week in Hamburg and it was a very good decision after the European Fashion Weeks in the recent past. I could work off organizational issues, deal with accounting subjects, shoot collaborations and forward the move into our new flat. Therefore my Instagram Stories account was rather quite and unspectacular during the last week. In the end of this month we will head to the Maldives, after that we will take a flight to Los Angeles but for this trip we have still to handle some organizational topics in advance. Of course we are already looking forward to the warmer days and a short break at these great destinations.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Even this week we will spend our time in Hamburg for dealing with the new flat and upcoming move. At least in theory we have already everything furnished but as you can probably well imagine, there is still a lot to do, when considering that the flat is completely empty. I get as excited as a little kid to show you the rooms on Instagram Stories, where I will capture the establishment progress.

New In: At the moment I am still waiting for the arrival of my new Miu Miu and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses because the weather here in Hamburg is more and more like Spring in recent times. At Edited I have ordered a very recommendable two tones jeans and white colored mules. Apart from that I was pretty restrained concerning shopping activities. :-)
