Tis’ the season for Overknees

Posted on: Sunday, December 21, 2014

Hoegl Overknees (6 of 7)

Over the last couple of years I’ve become quite picky when it comes to the quality of my shoes because especially in Winter it’s crucial to have some nice quality boots that keep your feet warm and dry. Overknees are a big thing this season and I was happy about a shoe trend that would actually keep my legs warm, can be matched with thick woolen socks and can easily be dressed up or down. The fact that Overknees will even work well with a fancy Christmas dress and are still comfortable when you’re nine months pregnant (watch for a zipper at the side unless you want to wear them for the rest of your pregnant life) make them worth an investment, don’t you think?

However, the tradeoff between not too much of an investment (say good bye to Stuart Weitzman) and not compromising on good quality at the same time turned out to be quite a challenge here in the US. Maybe I’m not familiar enough with all the brands/shops yet but all of the Overknees that I looked at/ordered online were either suuuper expensive, not made of leather or looked more like biker boots.

Layering the bump

Posted on: Friday, December 12, 2014


Hey folks!
Whew! Busy times over here right now. The holiday season is of course always filled with a lot of events and Christmas parties but right now I’m also trying my best to make as much use as possible of those last days where I can manage to move around the city.

I’m already waddling in slow motion and I have to plan my daily activities carefully because it might as well be that this one trip to the post office already marks the end of that days adventures :D
So while I’m busy crossing off all those christmassy activities in the city as quickly as possible, I still got some pictures from our days in Vermont for you.
The bump will soon be gone so no pictures should get left behind ;)

So far November has been quite good to us. Last weekend we enjoyed a warm and sunny afternoon walk around the upper west side, having a nice snack at whole foods columbus circle before strolling back home through central park.
Slowly I have to begin to carefully plan and portion those little activities a bit more because my body doesn’t approve of walking the city the whole day anymore. So there are no spontaneous “First, shopping in Soho, then coffee in Williamsburg, before dinner & cinema in midtown” days for the next couple of weeks ;)
But I do have to say that I don’t miss our car at all so far. It feels so good to be outside everyday and always walk everywhere. Maybe because everybody does it and nobody has a car? Anyways, let’s hope for another sunny week in November :)

Hey everyone! We’re back from a wonderful little roadtrip that took us upstate (more about that soon!) and while I’m still battling the post vacation blues, I’m bombing you with a picture overload from a lovely day with my parents in Brooklyn. From walking the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO to visiting the Mast Brothers Chocolate Factory and a cute little “beer garden” in the afternoon, we’ve spent the most wonderful sunny fall day together. Squeeze in a little shopping and the best iced coffee from blue bottle and you have two happy visiting parents :)

There are still outfits that doesn’t make you look pregnant at all and then there are dungarees :D
So if you ever wanna look HUGE, dungarees are your best friends.
When I look at these photos I can’t believe that this belly is going to grow for two more months but despite how uncomfortable it gets with every week that passes, I totally adore this big baby belly of mine! Not a single day goes by where I don’t get the sweetest comments from strangers in the subway, in a store or just by walking down the street (big love America!) and everybody is just too nice!

It has been raining nonstop for the last two days which resulted in the first days where it felt remotely like fall. I guess I’m just used to much worse weather when it comes to fall and I’m still waiting to come home freezing a bit and looking forward to a cup of tea & my blanket. However, the weather forecast shows a sunny 19ºC weekend so there’s that ;)

Bye Birks

Posted on: Wednesday, October 8, 2014


I’m a bit sad that this is probably the last appearance of Birks on the blog for 2014.
This trend is just too awesome to be true for the lazy pregnant woman and I’m already dreading the days of big belly + boots (bye bye chelsea boots).
Although it’s still relatively sunny and green in NYC, you can definitely feel fall creeping around and t-shirt days are officially over I guess. Still need to get my hands on a proper checked flannel shirt to get in the mood :)
This week the family is here for a visit and I’m excited to spend a few days filled with touristy activities with my loved ones!

I can’t tell you how much I love Sundays in NYC. I always hated those super packed European Saturdays and sleepy, closed Sundays which made you even more aware of the upcoming Monday – depressing! Now we spent our Sundays strolling the streets of the City, brunching with friends, maybe a little shopping stroll on our way back and everybody is out and about in a relaxed mood. I love it!

Even though we officially arrived in September, Summer didn’t leave NYC yet. During the weekend it was incredibly hot & humid and I was actually sweating like crazy when these pictures were taken.
Yesterday was much better but as much as I try to enjoy these last days of Summer I’m so looking forward to rainy afternoons in cozy sweaters, flannel shirts, hats & candles.
Can’t help it, I’m a fall/winter girl.

P.S. Basically craving almond boba tea every. single. day.
You might need to get used to seeing it on pictures if this continues :D

Can’t believe that we’ve been to NYC exactly one month to the day and that it’s already September! It feels like yesterday that we arrived and it also feels like June in NYC. During these four weeks it only rained twice and it’s still incredibly hot and humid.

Half way there!

Posted on: Monday, August 25, 2014


Three weeks have passed since we moved to NYC but it feels just like a blink of an eye. These first weeks have been so much fun, we got to know so many people and everything was just very exciting! There’s still no everyday life with all the parties, events, organizing furniture and handling organizational issues but no complaining of course. Tonight we’re having our first real TV night at home because we’re excited to watch the Emmy awards with tons of snacks and food :) This past weekend also marked being 20 weeks pregnant which means I am half way through this pregnancy, so I thought I post some stats of how things are going over here.

Eleonora Carisi for Zalando

Posted on: Thursday, May 8, 2014


A little while ago, the blogosphere has been flooded with a particular hashtag: #eleonoracarisiforzalando. Why? Zalando has teamed up with Italian blogger and street-style darling Eleonora Carisi to launch a clothing capsule collection. The capsule, entirely manufactured in Italy, consists of nine pieces in a nature-inspired allover print. They include an organza bomber, a silk top and a silk maxi dress with a Neoprene bustier.

Better late than never I got my hands on a piece and decided to go with the awesome and very versatile bomber jacket. Perfect for mild summer nights or combined with a denim jacket underneath. Or black dressy pants? Or pattern mixing with a striped shirt? You see, the list goes on and I’m sure you won’t see many random people on the street wearing that same unique jungle pattern. It’s a catch!

2014 – 4

Posted on: Sunday, April 6, 2014


Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend despite the rainy, grey Sunday yesterday?
I’ve never been a big fan of Sundays anyway, they’re too calm and way too quiet for my taste. Almost depressing buhuuuu…Nevertheless, we always try to make the best of our Sundays by going for a nice walk and trying new places for a delicious breakfast or dinner. 

An outfit for such a gloomy Sunday needs to be simple, comforting and put together without much thought. For me, this always results in lots of black + stripes. 
Seriously, it’s ridiculous how many times I’ve been wearing black jeans and a striped shirt in my life.
But probably that’s why they say, ‘when in doubt – wear stripes’…
