Coral love

Since I'm a happy owner of my new Nike Frees I'm in love with coral. Any material, any form, any product in coral look pretty in my eyes. Casual, elegant, sporty, it's so easy to combine and to refresh an odd outfit.
1. Black 5 pocket skinny fit jeans - Acne
2. Coral cashmere pullover - Acne
3. Grey Classic Q Slim Zip around wallet - Marc by Marc Jacobs
4. Grey rain boot with back zip - Loeffler Randall
5. Coral bracelets - Marc by Marc Jacobs
6. sunglasses - Oliver Peoples

I'll have a nap now.

Material mix part I

There has been a lot of shopping and money spending in the last few weeks. Ignoring winter sale hasn't been as easy as I was imagining. But whatever, I love my new discoveries. Mixing materials and styles such as sporty with elegance has been a lot of fun. It's amazing how inspired I got in the last 9 days not working in the hospital wearing ugly scrubs. I feel a huge difference in my styling whether I'm at work or not.

It's not really t-shirt weather at the moment but I've never seen such a simple but yet special t-shirt. This silicone print t-shirt was found at COS in Friedrichstraße, Berlin. So simple but the silicone printed-on stripes makes it looks special. Great to combine with skinny black waxed jeans (tried it out in the changing romm).
The sneakers are from the newest Nike free collection. These are the Nike free run +3 in a kind of light blue/grey with highlights of a bright fire pink (that's how I would call it). For running in the park or in the woods, these trainers are perfect due to the the flexible sole, the light reflecting material and waterproof surface which keeps mud of the shoes. Just take a wet cloth and wipe the dirt of.
It's been pretty cold (-11 to -3°C !!) here in Berlin so looking for a warm pullover which is both elegant AND warn without looking like a chubby kid, I coincidental found this really soft angora pullover at Massimo Dutti in Friedrichstraße, Berlin with the intention of looking for a proper winter coat (which I found at Massimo Dutti, too). Check it our here.
Ok, so this aren't really proper winter shoes, I know. I found these in my home town visiting my parents and looking for warm winter boots (which I of course didn't find.) But instead I ran into these fancy slippers, perfect for up coming spring season. They aren't really comfy (yet). But I love glitter, so I couldn't go home without them.
Now to the accessories: While foraging for some more useless stuff I ran into COS in Friedrichstraße. And fell in LOVE with this sleek-looking teardrop ring colored in fresh green from the inside and this suede shoulder bag.

Nike free run +3 - 120 €
silicone print t-shirt from COS - 20 €
pullover from Massimo Dutti - 25€
glitter slippers from Zara - 20 €
teardrop ring from COS - 5 €
suede shoulder bag from COS - 40 €

Ok, so this was just a part of my recent shopping events, but as soon as I'll find some time, I'll continue with the rest of the stuff and show you different combinations, too.

Enjoy your sunday evening! What are your plans? - My room mate and I are going out for dinner. Sometimes it's nice to eat outside and especially spend some time with your room mate apart of our flat, just to get the feeling back that you are more than just room mates.

Loeffler Randall

 Elegant rain boots for those who are tired of the bulky hunters.
Find them here !!!
Loeffler Randall was born out of designer Jessie Randall's quest to find the shoes that she wanted to wear but could not find – shoes that possessed an understated elegance, were well-made, and undeniably feminine. With this distinct point of view, Loeffler Randall launched in the fall of 2005. Styles like the Matilde flat boot quickly became staples among fashion editors and celebrities alike, and remain at the heart of Loeffler Randall’s footwear offering.
Find them here !!!
Also check out these espadrille sneakers for sunny days.

Loeffler Randall’s mix of refined sophistication and downtown cool filled a niche in the shoe market, earning the brand early critical and commercial success. In June 2007, Jessie Randall was honored with the prestigious CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design. In 2009, Inc. magazine named Loeffler Randall as one of the 500 fastest growing private companies in America. The magazine also recognized Loeffler Randall as one of the “Elite Inc. 500,” which put the brand in the company of past honorees such as Microsoft.

Found in over 200 fine retailers worldwide, including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Harvey Nichols, Loeffler Randall’s presence continues to grow. In Fall 2009, Loeffler Randall proudly launched its first retail venture, an e-commerce website, dedicated to selling the full spectrum of Loeffler Randall products and building direct relationships with loyal customers around the world. In 2010, Loeffler Randall launched a line of classic rain boots, and debuted its first shoe collaboration with design house Suno. In 2011, Loeffler Randall launched its first bridal shoe collection.

Art on the London Underground: 150th anniversary

On 9 January 2013, London Underground celebrated 150 years since the first underground journey took place between Paddington and Farringdon on the Metropolitan Railway.
Since then the London Underground has been a platform for several artists to present their artwork to the public.
Art on the Underground's newest project attends to the 150th anniversary of London's underground.
On the 10th of january 1863 the first underground steam train rode between Paddington and Farringdon.
The tube as a place for art - this idea was developed in 1908 of  the former administrative officer Frank Pick. He was employed by the carriers of the different tube lines to develop the commercialisation of London's underground. In spite of the hype of the Metropolitan line, the three deep and pricy lines, Bakerloo-; Pickadilly- and today's Northernline didn't attract enough passengers.
 Pick then came up with the idea of eye-catching graphic posters to disentitle the passenger's scepticism.
Until now London's Underground is a public art's platform. To mark the 150th anniversary of LU in 2013 there will be artworks presented in each of the 270 tube stations. From large-scale video installations to fordable take away tube maps designed by artists like Mark Wallinger or Tracey Emin.

Definitely one reason to travel to London this year!

Thank you for reading,

Happy belated New Year!

 Ha ha... yes, it's sunday. It's the 6th of january. And YES New Year's eve is almost a week ago. So what?! Happy New Year! This year, pardon, last year all I wanted was a quiet New Year's eve with my closest friends. No huge party, not too many people and no pressure in having THE party. It turned out to be the nicest 31st of december I ever had. I had my best friend who is luckily my room mate too and my best former school friends invited to Berlin over New Year's eve. It was kind of traditional: brunch, movie, nap^^, coffee and "Berliner" or as the Berliner say "Pfannkuchen", dinner, a walk to the Victoria park, champagne at midnight, party untill late at night, bed time.
It was perfect. And I'm so glad to have had my best friends at my place. Thank you so much for coming over although it took a bit time due to the long distances between us all. But we have to get used to not seeing each other so often anymore. We're turning into grown-ups and a lot of things are changing in the way we don't want things to change. But we know we have to go our own ways now. So thank you for spending the last day of 2012 with me. And I hope we'll stay in touch.
Happy New Year!
