These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when my boyfriend and I spent a few days in Berlin. I had a job interview (which didn’t work out in the end – which probably is a good thing) and Dominik decided to accompany me which was very nice!
We stayed in a cute Hostel/Hotel hybrid called Schulz Hotels. I’m pretty sure it’s a chain but I can really recommend it. The price per night is really cheap, you can book breakfast or use the communal kitchens and decide between a private (more hotel style) or group room (like in hostels).
We took these pictures on our second day in Berlin. We started out having coffee and croissants at a local café and then made our way over to the “Hackesche Markt”. It is described as (one of the many) creative centres in Berlin. After the war, many artists and designers located their workshops in this quarter making it a lively scene-district. Nowadays however, it is much more touristy – but lovely nonetheless. There are a lot of beautiful old buildings, cute cafés and designer shops (with a few vintage shops in between). We did a lot of window shopping and imagining what we could buy if we had all the money in the world (… as one does). We then stopped at Monsieur Wong for lunch which is a kind of Asian fusion cuisine – and very yummy.
I wore my favourite leopard pants (which I had been on the hunt for for years before finding them at Zara – of course) with some comfy statement trainers. When I first bought these shoes, I was unsure if I would get enough wear out of them. Turns out I have worn them loads. I love a bright coloured shoe and they liven up any outfit! To keep the look from going to OTT, I wore a cosy sweater and coat (both from Mango) in similar colours with my trusty Hallhuber bag. All of these items are at least a year old I’m afraid, but I hope that sharing looks like this will inspire you to think about what you have in your wardrobe that is similar – which you can then combine in new ways. That is how I go about thinking of new outfits for example. I love Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. I then screenshot looks I like or save them to a mood board and then think about how I can recreate instead of going out and buying a whole new outfit.
