it might be one of the happier Monday´s today cause only today and tomorrow and I finally have some time off over the Easter holidays starting on Wednesday which means sleeping in and enjoying being home at least a few days. Life hasn´t been too busy the last few weeks but it is still nice to unwind a little and do nothing.
We had been to Nuremberg on Sunday just to walk around and enjoy the city and have some coffee and then we got back in the car and drove home. It is just under an hour aways so we thought it would be nice wandering around some place else than our city. Also the city of Nuremberg is very old and has some great architectural buildings too. There is something new to spot around every corner.
I wanted to share this look with you today cause the weather has been so unpredictable and as many days we already had were you could wear sleeveless shirts, this week was the exception. So how to style a summerdress inbetween seasons or weather. I always like adding a leather jacket. It can be a biker style or a normal jacket cut but I think it adds some edge and coolness while also prevents you from freezing (if you are working in a more serious surrounding you could easily change the leather jacket for a blazer). Other than that I just add a pair of pumps and a pair of stay-up stockings and am ready to go. I know this doesn´t sound like much but going from wearing to a summerdress with a pair of espadrilles to adding some layers isn´t too

aren´t there pieces from time to time that catch our eye and have also caught a whole bunch of bloggers eyes. There are. For the colder time its usually a pair of boots or a warm blanket scarf everyone is wearing and for summertime a pair of wedges or what I have found – a dress. This maxi dress with the high side slits which can be knotted in the front or not appears to be in so many different bloggers closets that is has become a total trend article. It is from amazon and under 20 Euro and comes with prime shipping. I got it in the color gray but it is also available in black.
For the look I have paired a denim jacket (I have been loving the denim jacket/dress combo lately and try to wear it as much as possible before it gets to hot) and my favorite pair for espadrilles (I recently got in black) to point the look towards Spring and Summer. The handbag I am wearing is my Gemini Link from Tory Burch I got myself for my birthday. It matches perfectly with so many things of my wardrobe and also holds a ton of stuff. The perfect bag for travel or work or errands. Since it wasn´t super hot and to add some coolness I went with a black baker boy cap.
how about some Easter outfit inspiration for you, after sharing my tablescape and a few of my recipes I wanted to style a look which would look so nice and pretty for any Easter festivity. I have worn this exact look for our Easter brunch last Sunday and it was a total hit. Super comfortable and oh so springish.
The skirt I am wearing for this outfit was a total steal I got from H&M a few weeks ago. They had a current 70 % discount and I snagged it for about 7 Euro which is amazing (it is still on sale). The quality is really good and the pleats are really thick but not too sturdy. They will wash nicely without fading over time. Adding a white lace shirt instantly creates a dreamy and romantic touch. Of course I have worn my favorite pair of espadrilles which completetd the look perfectly.
Lady Danger was my first ever MAC lipstick. It is the one I am wearing in the pictures above. If you are looking for a bright orangy red, this is for you. I don´t wear it too often but the color was bright and perfect for the Easter look.
I also had a lot of luck this day cause it was warm and beautiful outside so I didn´t have to freeze either. Finding out what to pack for our upcoming trip cause the weather changes daily!!!
I wanted to share this adorable navy blue flower dress for a few weeks now and I finally got around to re-wear it and shot it. I personally love a navy shade over a black. It just flatters my skin tone much more. Anyways the dress is a H&M sale find and perfect for spring weather. It has buttons in the front all the way down and a belt made of the same fabric to set the focus on the waist.
I paired the dress with a denim jacket since it has been chillier than it looks in the picutres but it would also be a good addition for a colder day in general or the cool spring mornings. And my favorite pair of espandrilles. I hope you aren´t already tired of them because I got them in black too and they are also already a favorite.
But let´s skip to the handbag. Do you like the bamboo handle trend ? I personally do a lot cause in my opinion it adds such a fresh and summery touch to the look. I have a few different shapes, color and sizes of bags all with a bamboo handle and I wouldn´t want to miss them.
The weekend has been pretty nice (weatherwise) and we also had our early Easter brunch with the family yesterday which was a huge success. The food tasted great and everyone ate and chated a lot. After everyone left we spent the rest of the day cleaning up and lying on the sofa. Not too bad for a lazy Sunday.
There isn´t too much planned this week since I am at work from today to Thursday (although it is just a half day today – thank god).
