Hey! Fall definitly arrived and although I have to admit that I’m kind of into big sweaters and drinking lots of tea, I am just not ready for having shitty weather all day every day. (In Hamburg that’s kind of what’s happening right now) The good thing about fall is that you can put a bunch of warm stuff in the upper part, but still go out with a skirt. That way you keep the very warm pants in the closet for the last month and wear something different than the typical black pants. The fluffy jacket is my favorite right now, I cannot explain it, right now it just fits everything! 😉

Have a great start & rest a little this weekend,
love

Hallo meine Lieben! Jetzt ist der Herbst wirklich endgültig da und obwohl ich dicke, kuschelige Pullis und Unmengen an Tee wirklich liebe, wäre ich doch froh über ein bisschen Abwechslung zu grauem Himmel und Dauer-Regen. Auch wenn es schwer ist darf man es dem Wetter nicht nach tun und nur noch trist rausgehen. Ich liebe mich oben rum warm einzumummeln, untenrum kann es aber ruhig noch ein bisschen luftiger sein solange die Schuhe warm sind. Also ruhig mal trauen etwas anderes anzuziehen, so kalt ist es dann wider erwarten doch noch nicht. Meine schwarze Flauschi-Jacke ist gerade mein tägliches Highlight, ich habe für sie letztes Jahr viel zu viel bezahlt, jetzt sieht man sie ganz günstig überall von H&M bis Primark.

Genießt euer Wochenende und probiert ein bisschen zu entspannen,

Love

Wedding under fallen leaves

Hello you 🙂
September-wedding in Hamburg can mean absolutely everything from warm to nasty weather. Luckily I stuck to my decision to wear a dress, because the weather was more than perfect! Incredible for a location close to the harbor.
The simple ZARA dress with puffy sleeves and exciting flower print was the perfect summer ending. Afterwords I love how the big black lines at the bottom flatters the shoes, my new favorites from Steve Madden. For dancing through the night I can only suggest trying different heel heights, sometimes less is more, although I think the glas-optic makes up the height.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend,
xo Janne

Hey 🙂
In Hamburg im September zu heiraten ist mutig, wobei man sagen muss, dass es auch den Sommer durchregnen kann, also muss man Kleidungstechnisch wirklich auf alles irgendwie gefasst sein! Besonders im Nachhinein bin ich so froh, dass ich mich trotz hin und her überlegen für ein Kleid entschieden habe. 
Das im Schnitt doch eher einfach gehaltene ZARA Kleid mit dem auffälligen Puffärmeln und Blumen-print war mein perfektes Sommerende. Wenn ich jetzt die Bilder anschaue gefällt mir besonders die schwarze dicke Linie am Saum, die super zu meinen neuen Lieblingen von Steve Madden passt. Ich bin so froh, endlich mal etwas niedrigere Schuhe gekauft zu haben, durch die ausgefallene Glasoptik finde ich sind sie der absolute „Hingucker“, also ruhig mal etwas neues trauen!

Ein wunderbares Wochenende,
xo Janne

Hello loved ones, I hope looking at these pictures you fell as much in love with Amsterdam as I do everytime I am able to visit this beauty. Riding bikes everywhere, the old city center, colored houses, small boutiques, my love-list is non-ending. I wish I was as motovated as taking pictures of the city to take pictures of my outfits and myself, but I am working on it!

2 small tips: Mannekenpis definitly got the best fries & Royal98 has this delicious pizza as shown on the picture.

Despite that I can only recommend: Go on your bike and discover by looking around and not on your phone!

Hallo meine Lieben, ich hoffe sehr, dass ihr euch beim Anschauen der Bilder genauso in Amsterdam verliebt habt wie es mir jedes Mal passiert, wenn ich in dieser unfassbar schönen Stadt unterwegs bin. Mehr Fahrräder als Autos, die alte Innenstadt, bunten Häuser und kleinen Botiquen sind nur der Anfang der nicht enden wollenden Liste was die Stadt zu bieten hat. Ich wünschte ich hätte auch mal ein paar mehr Bilder von mir gemacht..

Noch zwei kleine Tips für diejenigen, die jetzt planen bald mal vorbeizuschauen: Mannekenpis hat die besten Pommes & Royal98 eine wirklich ausgezeichnete Küche und Location!

Ansonsten: Schwingt euch aufs Fahrrad und lernt die Stadt durch herumschauen kennen, ganz ohne Handy oder Reiseführer. 

City of fog, unique architecture & hills

My last post about my West Coast road trip is a very special one for me, because it´s showing my by far favourite city in the US: SAN FRANCISCO!
It was actually my first time in SF and I was pretty excited, because the city is known for small streets, cute little restaurants, Thrift Shops and so much more things I just love. And although I went in with as much expectations as a person can possibly have, I was still surpized about HOW beautiful it actually was. Pictures can´t really live up the feeling you get walking through the streets and one is prettier than the other!

Of course there is a reverse side as well, although I have to say that it applies to every big city in the US: poverty. I love so many things about the american culture, the food, the friendly people the easy going life style, but walking along the streets of a large city it´s so easy to tell that the country has many many problems they need to tackle and I truly hope soon. I have never ever seen this amount of people living in the streets. Of course I have been in very poor countries, but somehow I still think that it feels very different being in an industrialized country and seeing all these hundreds over hundreds living on the streets, in the underground railways in no sunshine for weeks. I was in so much pain, because you´re not able to give something to everyone, there are simply way way to many. With some of them you can´t even talk anymore, because they´re so desocialized. Something needs to happen soon, but looking at who is in charge right now it seems like that these urgent problems won´t be solved soon, even more excruciating.

I believe looking at a city you have to look at all sides, not just the glimmer ones. I was never scared in San Francisco, not even alone with hundreds of homeless people in the middle of the night. They ask you to buy pens from them or invite you to a meal, but not once I felt attacked, there was only feeling bad and sorry. But of course all of that is something you won´t see in pictures or in tourists guides.

There is one small thing that really got me in SF (and that´s for once not a deep one) it´s just freeking cold there! 😀 Believe me, you drive half an hour and the clouds are gone, but in SF it´s windy and cloudy and forgy, bring your sweathers and long pants! (I definitly brought the wrong clothes)

And now after all this negativity here is a huge list with just some of the pretty places the city has to offer. I hope you enjoy!

„Bernal Heights Park“ is a small hidden park, only known by habitants. The swing was my highlight of the day!

„Painted Ladies“ in Almo Square Park.

„Bradford street“, known as the deepest street in SF.

„Haight Street“ an arty district that starts to become pretty touristy. Cute little stores and much of graffitti.

„Golden Gate Bridge“ sadly in fork, I was not able to see anything 😦

Views over views – YOSEMITE

I was so excited doing this post and share all the fantastic pictures (which are honestly not even able to catch a glimpse of the beauty you´re going to see visiting the Yosemite National Park!) But if I´m looking back I have to admit that I was pretty dissappointed in the first couple hours. I do have a very simple solution for that: My expections were up to the ceiling whenever I just thought about Yosemite or looked at pictures. I started talking to people a couple days before and the reaction were all similar in one point: everyone was stunned. One guy even told me he found God in a hidden place and was driving every single weekend up to the park to feel the connection. I for my part was hoping to see something different and unexpected, and how life is, don´t search and press things you would like, let things happen and try to be as open-minded and unprejudiced as possible, even if it´s in a positive way.

Yosemite showed me that beauty can be the emotion you feel being at a place. Maybe not even a exceedingly stunning one, but one you´re touched and you feel comfortable and home. And I found my Yosemite while I was hiking at places you couldn´t hear the full streets and thousands of people. Not being at the view points with huge tourists busses or in Yosemite City that reminded me of a huge summer camp. Yosemite had to dissappoint me first to lift the feeling up to something even more special: Feeling home in a place so far away from home.

Yosemite Valley from „Tunnel View“, the probably most famous view point.
„Mariposa Grove“, I was beyond intrigued by these huge beauties. Can you even see me in front of the Dead Giant? Some of the trees there have been growing for more than
2´000 years.

Mammoth Lake

We started the day off with an amaaaaazing breakfast, nothing could possibly make a day better than this. Of course it was a bit overexpensive, but eating fast food breakfast for the last couple days it felt like heaven.

And than we went on a quick sightseeing tour trying to see as much as possible of Mammoth Lakes. But in half a day you can only catch a glimpse of the beautiful nature, but a little of the peace the place is surrounded with.

Stay tuned guys, because my next post is going to be about YOSEMITE!

Death Valley

Well, let´s talk about unexpected things: I was pretty sure the Death Valley National Park was just a „must“, because we had to drive through there to reach our next destination. And I don´t think I ever had zero expectations before that turned out being so so wrong! I LOVED it, although it was crazy hot and sticky, I thought it was so faszinating.
