When I visited Berlin at the beginning of my summer holidays, I fell in love with the city. It has got such a rich history, so many beautiful buildings and on top of all that: great street art with a very positive message. When visiting Berlin you will pretty soon discover that the city is full of bears. They are literally on practical every street corner. These so called buddy bears have been inspired by the Zurich Kuh Kultur (see photo below), another colourful street art phenomenon.

A few weeks back I spent a weekend in windy Holland. This midi skirt was a perfect choice for the occasion. It is absolutely wrinkle-free, so great for travelling and I like how playful the skirt looks when it is windy! It is definitely one of my more versatile skirts.

Don’t you just love this little black bag? It is small enough to fit my posture and to accompany feminine outfits, yet large enough to offer the necessary place for my essentials and cool enough to accompany leisurely outfits too. I just adore it as you can imagine.
View of Munich from the Maximilianeum.
Today is the start of the ‘München Oktoberfest’, so I am sure that this view will be slightly different the coming few weeks. I took this photo last April, when we visited Munich. Living in Switzerland, Munich is kind of around the corner, so perfect for a short city trip.
For me shorts are something I almost only wear in my spare time. I prefer dresses and skirts for school (see: Vive les volants! ), since they are so much easier to style if you want to wear something comfortable and classy in your classroom. These shorts are definitely the exception to the rule.
Last April we visited Munich and to my surprise there was a beautiful English Garden in this Bavarian City. I just loved it. Imagine how thrilled I was when shortly after that trip I went to London. London is full of red busses and telephone boxes, like you can see in I spy with my little eye , but also full of green gardens and parks.
Today I’d like to take you to one of these; the white garden of Kensington Palace.
Voilà, another one of my favourite summer outfits. Why? Well, for many reasons really.
- I love the flowery pattern because I associate flowers with summer.
- I am a dress lover as you know. (see also: Vive les volants!)
- As a little girl I already liked pink and as a small woman I still do.
- I like a touch of Dutch now and then.
You will know from previous blog posts that I am very much aware of my outfits in the classroom. See: My personal 5 fashion rules. As a teacher you set an example. To put it simply: ‘walk your talk’.
The beginning of a new school year is always a good time to set new goals, so let me share some of my teacher’s thoughts with you. If you have got another profession, you should definitely keep on reading as well. ‘Walk your talk’ applies to all of us; so enjoy the read, reflect on it and find out for yourself how you can ‘walk your talk’ even more than you already do.
A few weeks back I published some tips for happy summer days in Tips for happy summer days . I have followed quite a few of them myself (including the digital detox as you may have noticed) and have enjoyed some very happy summer days indeed. Now I’m back in black!

Summer is in full swing here in Switzerland and I hope it is the same where you live. Some of you will enjoy a vacation during the summer months and others will enjoy a staycation. Well, happy summer days can be found everywhere. Some super simple summery suggestions:
