WHAT TO WEAR?: at Rock im Park

Finally! We have arrived in 2015s festival season! I’ll be at Rock im Park, a Bavarian festival near the fabulous city of Nürnberg. The most bands who enter the stage here are Rock, Alternative or Metal acts. I’m totally looking forward to see In Flames, Foo Fighters and Slash live!

Although I already talked about the right festival “fashion” last year: here comes another post. Why? Because all those Fashion Blogs give unrealistic outfit-inspirations for a three-day Rock festival. Rock im Park is loud, crowded and dirty. So you won’t take your most beloved clothes with you. At least I don’t.

Here comes my suggestion:

rock im park

Ripped Jeans, boots to keep your feet save and dry, a small bag for some water and tissues (remember: there are only Dixi toilets!), an instant camera, so you wont lose your good one and of course some accessorizes to make you feel good!

And when the temperatures are rising:

Black shorts are perfect as you will be sitting around and waiting for the bands to start a lot. The combination of Bralet, Shirt and Blouse gives you the opportunity to get rid of layers of clothing. One thing at a time. And Chucks are so much better than sandals. Trust me, there will be people jumping on your feet.

By the way, I made a playlist with all the songs I definitely want to hear in two weeks, give it a try 🙂

What are your festival must-haves? Anything I could forget about?

Tell me something I can hold onto forever and never let go. Let go.

Rain calls for Netflix, tea and some sweets? But what if you’ve already seen all available series episodes? And are looking for something new? And fitting for a rainy day? And want to see Blake Lively not only in your next re-run of Gossip Girl?

Then I have a solution. New in the theaters (at least in Germany) is “The Age of Adaline” a moving story about a women who can’t age. But without the annoying vampire-twilight-stuff. What would you do if the world around you changes but you just can’t? What about your loved ones? “It’s not the same when there’s no growing old together. Without that, love is just heartbreak.”, Adaline states. Maybe humanities dream of agelessness has its flaws after all…

Have fun watching! And tell me how you liked it!

My favorite will always be Benjamin Button, when it comes to movies and stories about aging 🙂

Hell of a dress. That’s the thing about movies with Blake. She obviously has an amazing stylist.

Still Blake is sitting on some stares. But without the mean gossip-girl schemes this time.

Ellis Jones: So, where are you off to?
Adaline Bowman: Some place with better food, my apartment… Yourself?
Ellis Jones: Back to the party, I just wanted to spend 27 floors with you.

WHAT TO WEAR?: in italy

amore mio - italian travel style
Italy calls for a stylish travel outfit. I put together a set with things that I think are not only quite functional for exploring all the old little cities of this amazing country, but also look nice for visiting a good restaurant and have a “sundowner” in of the busy bars neat the harbor. Not to warm, not to cold. Perfect for temperatures about 25 degrees. A bag where you can easily fit a bottle of water in, yet it’s cross-body so you won’t have to carry it in your hand all day. Because you’ll need your hands to take photographs of the picturesque scenery around you!

Thailand: A break beside the Chao Phraya River

I already shared some impressions of Thailand during my time there. Some pictures from some extraordinary locations whenever I had sufficient w-land connection and muse to share something. I already showed you some videos. For example oft my first evening in Bangkok. A video about the train ride to Koh Phangan and impressions from the Khao San Road. I couldn’t hold back my enthusiasm for my favorite breakfast place in Chiang Mai as well – but there is so much more. Todays photos are made in a very little bar near the Dragon Road. A trail through the Chinese Quarter of Bangkok along the Chao Phraya River. We were so exhausted after a day of exploring when we finally stumbled over this magical place. It’s owner appreciates cats (and I’m pretty sure she is actually Japanese! At least the extra toilet-slippers made me wonder;)) It’s just the perfect place to watch the sun go down over this magical city.

Guess why I chose this café? Can’t be because of the clouds on their advertising sign!

The Dragon Road is an amazing path for discovering the riverside of the Chao Phraya. Dare to leave it though! There a small trails leading you directly to the river and through the places where the people besides the river actually live in their houses build on logs right into the water.

The small streets of the Road of the Dragon. Simon, who traveled with me was always wondering about the electricity cables running openly through the streets.

Where The Wild Wind Blows

Bild

There’s this handsome boy, also known as Patrick Mirlach, who one can consider my male fashion-consciousness. I think I’ve never seen him out-of-style. Not even on the tennis-court. He’s the one I’m texting when I’m standing in the changing room and I’m in doubt 😉

Besides from having a perfect sense of style, he shares my love for Scandinavia and is as bad in taking Selfies as I am!

Besides from THAT, he’s a model. Of course. And a good one as well. You might have seen the “darken me” series I did with Christopher from Sandbox-Studios and him last year.

I only took some new Polaroids of him last week (as you can see above!) but there’s also some cool new stuff we made with Kathrin Pöhler. The series is calles “Aiolos”- he’s the son of the greek god of wind. The series is called like that, because we shot the pictures at the “Walhalla” and were nearly carried away by the blasts blowing trough the corridors of this old monument.
