I’m in Berlin! We turned our moving here into a weekend-long road trip, which included passing through Hungary, Slovakia and a bigger part of Poland. I managed to snap just a few pictures – even though so much of the landscape was beautiful, it didn’s seem to photograph that well just by phone. Plus the freezing cold took us by surprise and diminished some of the fun. Fortunately, we missed the first serious snow in Zakopane by just one day and, fortunately, we did get to try some of the local mulled one, hot spiced beer (!) and hearty food. Our next stop was Krakow, a lovely city that I wish I would have seen more of. That’s where the horse and carriage pictures are from – charming, right? After a night in Wroklaw, we finally made it to our destination – Berlin. More updates, soon!
Hello, International Egg Day! You may not have known it’s today (who can keep up with all these crazy celebrations?), but you can make it all better by taking tomorrow morning to cook a complex egg breakfast. And by complex, I don’t mean complicated – just something that you don’t do every day. Do we have a deal?
It looks like many actresses started up as models, although I had no idea Andie MacDowell had appeared in Vogue Italia years before starring in Groundhog Day or Four Weddings and a Funeral. But here she is, all fresh-faced and cozy in this retro editorial photographed by Arthur Elgort.
My first biker jacket was a hand-me-down, back when I was probably 16. Not everyone wore biker jackets then – it was an item reserved for the rockers and the punks. It was my everything and I wore it till college when I realized it was ridiculously oversized, and it wasn’t even real leather. And a few days ago, I found and bought a biker jacket I love. Designed like the good old times, only made of soft, wearable leather. AKA “perfect”. Do you have one? If so, these street style looks could inspire you to wear it differently. If not, they might inspire you to want one.

Greenhouses are a blogger’s best friend. This one is located in a small Romanian town and it looks spectacular even from the outside. There are two big domes, as well as some additional glass buildings, packed with cacti and tropical plants. After leaving our apartment last week, we spent our time all over the place, and one of the roads led us to this botanical garden (for the locals, this is in Jibou, Salaj). Exciting times coming up, since we’re driving to Berlin this weekend!
Background info aside, I’m still wearing what I now realize is my social media shirt. What can I do if it goes so perfectly with everything? That includes these cute cat print shorts I’ve recently received from a friend. Aren’t they adorable? It’s a little late in the year for bare legs, but they’re rather lovely with tights, I think.
Making a good photo shoot with children must be really difficult. I imagine they have a very limited attention span and it should be pretty hard to capture everyone in a fashionable smize, especially when there’s more than one child model involved. Yet, it can be done, as shown in this wonderful lookbook from children’s brand No Added Sugar. These tweens seem to have style figured out, with their pretty dresses I wouldn’t mind owning, their elegant jackets and the best tights ever. The shot with the headscarves is my favorite, and I can picture it in a grown-up photo shoot just as well.

Six | Pins by Cola de Conejo. If you can’t resist pins, like I can’t resist them, you need these in your collection.
This lookbook is a glamorized version of my life right now. Moving means living out of a suitcase for some time, and while that can be pretty hard, I know it’s worth it in the end. Back to the lookbook, it comes from Japanese label Je, and it includes minimalist, practical pieces that you can wear all the time. I love the idea of a skirt matching your passport, I love the picture of the model yawning and the simple color palette in classic autumn tones. And I love that I’ve found this lookbook at such a convenient time.
