Olivia Palermo: Style Formula

I admire Oliva Palermo´s Style and already mentioned in this post, that if there is any role model that REALLY inspires me and resembles my personal style the most, it has to be Olivia.
I created a board on Pinterest where I pin all of my favorite looks by her (sounds kind of stalker, I know).
I´m not saying I want to copy her style, but she always looks so effortlessly flawless and it seems she has created a simple formula for herself to make all her looks work (at least that´s what I figured out):

+ skinny, skinny jeans
+ classic/muted colors
+ luxurious fabrics like cashmere, leather and fur
+ ballerinas
+ big sunglasses
=
easy and elegant styling.
Plus, she always has perfect looking hair – I think she even uses her hair as an accessory.
I also think that she decides very carefully on what „basics“ she is using because even a black, long sleeve shirt looks very elegant on her; therefore, it has to have the perfect fabric and cut.
Other than that, like mentioned above, she always wears perfect make up and a beautiful hairstyle.
I think we could all use a little bit of Olivia in our closets.

Millennium Water Project

On one of my hunts for interior design inspiration I came across the most beautifully decorated apartment I have ever seen. To me, this is perfection. Lots of white, pink, blue and neutral hues and a touch of glamour by some silver accents like the pouf (definitely on my shopping list)!

This apartment was a project of The Cross Decor & Design for the Millennium Water Project – check out their homepage for more infos!

Also, here is their flickr album with many more pictures for inspiration.

Studded Coat

Finally I can show you guys a real outfitpost with my new coat that I love sooo much!
To me, it´s a very elegant and classy coat but the studs add a modern twist to it.
I´ve been on the lookout for a classic coat forever, and scored this beauty finally at Zara Sale – good thing, because now it´s already sold out.

I wore this combination yesterday for my dinner at Motto with Vicky, who also took the pics – as always 🙂 The scarf is a favorite of mine since a few years, it´s of super soft fabric with small black stains on it – actually, this year will be the year of electric blue from what I´ve seen so far, especially in the combination black/blue, that´s why I chose to wear my black leather pants.

Underneath I was wearing a simple grey shirt, a grey cardigan and my golden chain necklace and I love how well all the colors worked together. As for the scarf – I have this thing for knotting my scarves together in the middle and wear all of them like this.

Leather Skinnies: Pimkie 
Coat, Scarf, Bag, Shoes: Zara
Grey Cardigan and Shirt: H&M
Golden Chain Necklace: Forever 21

Etsy Love: Parrot Design Studio

Those who have been reading my blog for a while now know that I have a thing for finding the cutest Etsy shops on the block.
I also love letterpress printing and follow a few „letterpress accounts“ on Instagram, just for the eyecandy and inspiration (such as “ Peace, Love, Letterpress “ – check out their blog here, AMAZING stuff as well) so I was thrilled when I came across this cool store: „Parrot Design Studio„.
Definitely going to order some cards there…

Wishing you an amazing Thursday, lovelies!

Leaving for…

…LONDON!

Since I was working in London four years ago, I´m always sooo happy when I get to go back – even if it´s just for work, like this time. I won´t be able to post anything while I´m there, so I just wanted to say a quick goodbye. Until then, here are my top 5 things to do while you´re in London:

– get a sandwich, throw on a bikini (given it´s summer) and chill out at Green Park.

– get some chinese noodles at Camden Market, sit down at the bridge of one of the Themse´s river channels and watch all the craziness that´s happening there.

– go to the business district in London and drink a beer in the middle of all of the businesspeople that get crazy drunk after work. Like every day.

– take some time for Topshop Oxfordstreet. By time, I mean 5 hours.

– Visit Portobello road market in Notting Hill. Loveliest market in town.

I´m coming back on Tuesday, see you then lovelies!
