Facing now the darkest times of the year, these cold and damp shortest of days, the only reasonable thing is to get cozy under the blankets with some hot tea in one hand and a good book in the other. If there was a chance to turn back time, I would probably place myself on the streets of New York or heck, on the deserted but warm beach of Atlantic City which was our next stop after DC. Apart from the wild casinos and nightclubs (fist pump Jersey Shore style, yeah buddy!) , this city offers a beautiful seaside and taking a walk on that famous boardwalk, you can almost feel the history and the smell of bootlegged whisky around you. No Nucky Thompson and the crew at sight though; what a pity.

Lost & Found is one of those brands that I highly appreciate but don’t really come across that often. So far I own a pair of wool/leather gauntlets which are an essential piece of my winter wear, so when this button up shirt (or a light weight blazer when worn open) was brought to my attention, I knew I had to have it. The fit of it is a perfect blend of masculine and feminine, and the construction allows you to wear it multiple ways: What more could you ask for?
Wearing it here on the streets of Washington DC and in front of the White House (tourist galore), which in reality was much smaller than I thought!

In the past few weeks Berlin has been blessed with great weather, so most of my days have been spent outdoors until the late hours. Hence the radio silence.. Picture wise this time has been extremely fruitful and to start the flow, I want to share something that has recently found its way to my closet from the Antwerp stock sales: A new Ann Demeulemeester silk dress and… tada… not in black! Project “inject some color into your wardrobe” has now officially started. You have been warned!

So on Monday I turned 30; a big day for a small girl. Unlike most women, I was not afraid of this day and in fact, I took it with grace and excitement. It felt like starting a new chapter in my life: Gone is the insecurity of the 20s, student life and worries about the future. At 30, I’m still healthy and look relatively young, know how I am and what I like, got steady income, plenty of good friends around me, and live in one of the greatest cities in the whole world. 30s is the new 20s but with benefits, so really – what’s not to like?
