#ootd in berlin, germany

Parisians are effortlessly stylish. Londoners are on top of the trends. And Italians always have the chicest leather jackets. But Berliners have a style that is, in my opinion, truly the most unique. I loved how so much of the street fashion I saw was vintage or retro inspired. And a fashion “uniform” of any kinda (think, for example: skinny jeans, white tee, leather jacket) seems nonexistent.

Below, I’ve tried my best to distill the street fashion of Berlin into one photograph. But what you should really take away from it is not the exact outfit but the spirit of the German city’s style: individual, colorful, and retro. And most importantly, really freaking cool.

It’s difficult for me to pinpoint Londoners’ style in one photograph. While I was visiting, I saw a huge variety of chic outfits (no surprise). But they did have some common threads: pretty darn stylish…and lots of crop tops.

So, in the photograph below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of London street fashion into a single outfit. What do you think? Does it capture the essence of the city’s style?

While it’s true that I saw many fashion blunders (think: tourists) in the coastal city of Dubrovnik, I also twice as many outfits that captured the essence of the seaside city perfectly and stylishly.  In the photography below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of Dubrovnik street (and sea) fashion into a single outfit. Inspired by locals and style-conscious tourists alike. What do you think? Does it capture the spirit of this medieval town?

My recent travels have taken me to a half dozen countries and countless cities. People watching is inevitable (and enjoyable), and I can’t help but observe the unique style of each city. For the next few posts titled, “#OOTD” I’ll be presenting you all with my idea for the fashion in a particular country or city. While it’s impossible to capture the style diversity of every city I visit, I’ll do my best to distill what I’ve observed as the general style in one photograph.

So here you have it! In the photograph below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of Italian street fashion into a single outfit. What do you think? Does it capture the sprezzatura” of the country?

from iced coffee to vintage scrunchies: a day in berlin

I’m not sure if I love Berlin because of its culture, street art, and unique fashion sense or because today I was able to enjoy a vegan iced coffee and vegan burrito…but seriously, the iced coffee was a coconut water cold press with coconut milk! Whatever the reason (and I’m sure it’s all of them), I had an excellent Day #3 exploring Berlin. Unlike yesterday, I opted for public transit over cycling, as my day was packed with sites across the city. It was a morning of museums at the DDR museum and Gemäldegalerie followed by the wall art of the East Side Gallery and thrift shopping at Friedrichshain and Europe’s largest Humana (similar to the US’s GoodWill).

And yes, I bought a delicious iced coffee. But I also purchased five handmade vintage scrunchies, a crochet tank top, a tofu burger, and innumerable postcards. I don’t think I could have topped that.

bis später!

Hallo, Deutschland!

A Day in Berlin (As Told Through Food)

a day in berlin (as told through food)

Day #2 in Berlin was jammed packed, especially since I chose to cycle instead of take public trans (and inevitably got lost fairly often). The day started early…and rough with one embarrassing crash into the curb (the slow-mo kind that has every pedestrian ogling), one spilled cappuccino, and one lost map. But things got rolling again soon and I cycling my way to every site on my itinerary. The best way to sum up my day is to lay it out meal by meal. After all, I’ll admit that the moments I love most on vacation are the ones where I’m eating!

Amazing food, and can you believe I kept it all under 25 Euros!? Looking forward to seeing eating what tomorrow brings.
