Blue Berlin




(Zara Military Jacket, Ankle Boots from Germany, Black Stockings, thrifted Cotton Vest, random Charcoal Top, Peek & Cloppenburg Scarf from Germany, Absolute Checkered Shorts)
(Photos by Tobias Schweizer)

This year, I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in beautiful Berlin (thanks to my boyfriend who took me there!). It was my first time in the city and I absolutely adore it. People of all kinds of fashion sense were present, and this outfit was expectedly inspired by my surroundings. Another outfit to transition into the fall; I've taken fall-coloured shorts and a dark tank and layered, layered layered. The most important idea for me is to balance between complimenting while contrasting pieces, either through colors, textures or lengths. My favorite piece of the entire look has to be my new found shoes. They look different, a bit quirky if you will and remind me of old English military boots (I'm pretty sure I saw a similar pair while watching Pride and Prejudice).

this reminds me of a German exchange student we had in my math class last year-she had an effortless chic look, the longest eyelashes i've ever seen, and a lion's mane for hair. She did photography and was just all out adorable.

Like this look!

Great outfit... I love the blazer and shorts look! And the boots are gorgeous. It's such a coincidence I'm reading this, because I just got back from Berlin and I agree regarding the eclectic mix of people and fashion. Glad you had a great time there!
