We finally arrived in Germany, and I’m beyond happy to be reunited with my family and friends. My son, Kingston is having such a fabulous time with his grandmother which makes my heart melt. Seeing my mom with my son is beyond beautiful. Truly wish we all lived closer but for now we’re just just enjoying every minute together.
I grew up in a small near Dusseldorf with tons of little bookstores near my parents’ house. Reading is another passion of mine besides fashion. Near my hometown I discovered a new, tiny bookstore. It had all of these old books. Of course, I had to go in. My family were greeted by an elderly german woman who kissed my son Kingston. It was very sweet. I told her that I wanted to look around for a bit in which she said: “Kein Problem, schaut Euch ruhig um.” I smiled, and my treasure hunt begun.
It’s such a privilege to read, you know? It’s something not everyone subjects to. Reading allows me to travel the world even further, and visit past generations which in a way makes me become immortal; to live, as GRRM says, a thousand lives.
Afterwards we headed to the lake close my parents’ house where we took these pictures in my Everly Clothing dress. The location, my family, the dress…everything was perfect.
As always, thanks so much for reading & have a wonderful day!
Much love, always.

Great to see you in a different location/backdrop..out of the city and in the countryside….I love that dress, the slit, the shade of blue…and the sleeves on the white jacket…I can imagine seeing Mr K and yr must be pretty priceless…the short German text you put above really reinforces the fact that after 3 yrs plus in Berlin I really need to get beyond A1….but in my defence I dont live in Berlin full-time…aaah, this excuse is a bit weak, ich weiss, ich weiss…Have a good rest of week Bella!

Cute outfit! and i love these shots!!
Being 3 continents and 33,000kms away from my parents, I completely understand how you must feel right now 🙂 it’s very challenging being away from them (particularly as my daughter is their only grandchild) and yet, by the same token, it is what it is. I hope you have the loveliest of times and create many new memories together xoxo

Am happy for you because you were able to visit your home and went treasure hunting at the tiny book store. I love how you matched the blue dress and the white blazer, you look dashing hun, you are a true vision!!
I love hearing about your background and where you grew up. I’m glad that you’re enjoying your trip and spending time with family.
