SEPTEMBER FASHION EMILY AND FIN NANCY DRESS

September fashion Emily and Fin Nancy Dress September, you remind me of a teenager- one minute you’re laying it on thick with lashings of sunshine, the next you’re scolding me with a tantrum of rain.

FESTIVAL WEAR FOR THE INTROVERT

FESTIVAL WEAR FOR THE INTROVERT

FESTIVAL WEAR FOR THE INTROVERT Festival dressing: the mere thought of it brings me out in a cold, cold sweat. Get it right and you’re the belle of the festival arena stomping until the early hours of the morning, get it wrong and you’re doomed to chafing, blistering and sunburn and an early night under the stars. Some […] Read more…

FOR THE LOVE OF THRIFT

As I write this post, I’m taking refuge from the rain which is hammering against my window against a thundery soundtrack. It seems there’s no better time to write this post, not only because it will let me reminisce about brighter days in Berlin (predictable), but because I’ve been meaning to talk about thrift, making […] Read more…

BERLIN SUMMER

Berlin summer Packing for a city break in Berlin never gets any easier, especially when you’re packing for a Berlin summer.
