Leather Trousers

Hello loves! Time flies right now again – and at the same time, it doesn’t seem to move a bit. Have any of you ever felt this way? As you might know I got my tonsils removed 10 days ago. It’s already been 10 days, but then again only 10 days. I started bleeding again on Monday so I had to go back to hospital for two nights. I am still far from being fully recovered but it surely is going better now. Yesterday I finally left the house to go a little shopping now that all is on sale. It didn’t last all too long though, as I am still quite weak I noticed. Anyhow – no one likes reading complaints :)

I wanted to share a few photos with you of my favorite black leather trousers. They are the most comfortable pants ever, and still have that certain cool-factor to them due to the faux leather fabric and the sweatpants-look. I ordered them already a while ago at minimum – a danish company. They have similar ones actually on sale now, here! The long-sleeved shirt is from Zara and the sneakers are from Nike. The outfit is one of my favorites when I have that certain laid-back mood – and it almost reminds me of the Yeezus style. Pretty sure that Kayne would have approved as well.

Oh, and I did finally cut my hair. It doesn’t seem to be a lot to many and I doubt everyone notices the change but I did actually cut a full on 12cm. Like seriously, 12cm. Yes, I find it quite brave myself. I am still not a hundred percent familiar with the lenght and want to try out some new styles with it. I’ll try playing around with it as I am surely stuck with the length for a couple more weeks now. And quite frankly, I actually like having that extra hint of volume when waking up. What do you think of this messy, semi-wavy look? xo

Motivational Shopping

Happy Monday! I just finished my short HIIT workout session at home – I admit, it really takes inner convincing to wake up on a Monday morning and actually work out before even eating breakfast. Ah, my beloved breakfast.. :-) But it is all the more fun when you have some new shoes to work out in. Last Monday my inner self persuaded me into some online shopping activities. I found these Nikes and fell in love – not only with these though, but also with another pair (Air Max) – and, as destiny had it chosen for me, I found a third pair the following day. Whoops. Now my closet is richer by 3 new pairs – I am guily, yet in love! I also got this great pink yoga matt, as well as a new pair of workout shorts. Now that I have all these lovely items I obviously cannot back off from my freshly found morning routine.

I only started the full workout two weeks ago, since I hadn’t done much since surgery. Ahh – it takes so much motivation to continue. Yet, I always feel better and full of energy after my morning session. What do you do for your motivation? I surely can’t shop a new pair of shoes or clothes every week. Ok, I do need a few more shirts – so that might be a reason but I really cannot pull that one through for too long.

This weeks starts off busy again – I just finished my breakfast and need to sprint to the office soon. I have one meeting and quite a few calls scheduled for today. Tuesday and Wednesday will be similar – and the uni stuff in the evening. Thursday I’ll drive down to Düsseldorf, and Saturday we (family) are continuing to Norden (city in Germany), where we will be celebrating my grandpa’s 70th birthday. So excited to see the whole family again! Although I’ll only be staying a few days I’m already planning my outfits and I can see myself arriving with a huge suitcase. However – my parents are used to it by now. I think. :-)

Oh, and yesterday the summer offically started! Woot! Now I am praying that the weather will actually comply and that the rain will stop. It’s been horrible the past days. However, for now, I wish you all a great Monday and start into the new week! xo

A Hint of Barbie – My new Nike Air Max

0 Permalink

If you take a look at my closet, you will notice one color in particular: black. I am a huge fan of back – though I know it’s officially not defined being a color as such. Black works with everything and especially with every occasion. May it be for my work, my free time, friends time, for a nice dinner out, a spontaneous trip to a bar or laid back pic-nic at the park. The color black can be worn in a chic manner, a comfy-looking manner, modern, gothic (if one is a fan of it), punk, rogue, or conservative. Really, it fits all moods and places.

This summer I wanted new shoes. Not just any shoes, but I wanted sneakers. Most of you might have already seen the hype – the Nike-wave that flooded seemingly the whole fashion world. It took me into its stream as well and I couldn’t help it but want exactly that foot-wear as well. Originally, I had planned on getting the black Nike sneakers with the white sole and the white Nike sign. Taking one of my closest friends to the city, I made her try on shoes with me. Then, I saw the white Nike Air Max. First thought: Barbie! I had previously seen girls wear such bright sneakers with ⅞ lenght jeans (blue or black), combined with easy flowing tshirts, with jumpers, with blazers and even suits. Call it crazy, but as weird as it seemed to me at the time the more I couldn’t let go of the idea of combining such a girly and sporty look with classy-chic.

You can guess it from my photos. Yes, I vowed down to the fashion trend and decided on the hint of barbie: I had to have those pinky, girly Nike Air Max. It was one of the best sneaker decision I have made so far (not to forget my black Jeffrey Campbell sneakers with golden studs: I still love those black ones!). I especially love combining them with washed blue jeans and a blazer of choice. Be it in dark grey, pink, white or blue. They all fit. Speaking off, I am still looking for a white blazer. I know that at this point I should really share some of my outfit ideas in photos – so I promise to take some pictures next time I wear my lovely new favorites.
