It’s trench time, well it was in Germany, not so much in Chicago right now. Nonetheless, I’m a huge fan of the classic trench coat. I could’t get more excited when I spot the first rays of sunshine that announce spring because it means: Take off your winter and grab your trench! The trench coat is the perfect jacket for spring – a closet staple for warmer days ahead.
What I love about the trench is that it’s completely irrelevant what I’m wearing underneath. The trench in itself always looks classy and sophisticated. On a different note: We took these pictures in less than 3 minutes, and I’m not exaggerating. My brother, my son and my husband where on our way to visit a friend of mine in Gelsenkirchen, and as we were driving I noticed this graffiti wall, and I told my brother to stop immediately (typical blogger moment, huh?!). However, as my husband started taking pictures our battery died. So, yes, 3 minutes. Sometimes all you need is 3 minutes.
Have you ever experienced something like this? As always, I would love to hear from you!
While in Germany I had the opportunity to work with two amazing photographers: Gianluca Arangino and Marcel Huhn. We shot in Dortmund, known as being the independent city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. We wanted to create an urban feel, and even though it rained a bit that day, the pictures came out amazing. I’ve never really worked with a photography crew before. Our shoot was very professional, from setting up lighting during our sessions to various backdrops. It truly was an amazing experience I’ll never forget.
And even though my German adventures came to an end yesterday – I’m certain that I’ll be back soon. I miss Europe, I really do. We had such a wonderful time revisiting my favorite places, from cafes (I’m a Latte Macchiatto addict!) to my university in Münster. Being with my family and friends was very special too. We shared so many laughs together which I will hold dear to my heart forever. It felt so good to be surrounded by people who have known me for many, many years.
As always, thanks so much visiting and stay tuned for more German adventures!
Much love, always.
