What I Wore: Berlin

Hello all! I've just got back from Germany's capital- a wonderful city that I seriously loved visiting. I figured I would do an outfit post followed by a travel diary post (or two) that I will publish in a few days (if I can sift through my mass of photos and put together something readable!)

The weather was divine- I even managed to get a slight tan (unheard of for my vampiric skin minus the beach) so this is definitely a summer approach to the city. I was only there for a few days so obviously some items are repeated...but here's what I wore in Berlin!
Day 1
Dress: Red Herring | Sandals: New Look | Bag: Hobbs NW3 Baystone 

As soon as we got off the plane I was desperate to change out of my travel outfit. The air in Berlin can get quite muggy and the sun was scorching...this plus the bustle of the city left me feeling pretty claustrophobic in anything other than a dress as casual and light as this! I've done a post on this outfit already (here) but my love for this dress in the summer is eternal. To add, this Hobbs bag is the perfect size for exploring- I used it every day!

Day 2
Dress: Primark | Trainers: Nike Roshe | Bag: Hobbs NW3 Baystone | Hat: Atmosphere

The coolest day of the week (though still far from cool) called for my beloved grey maxi and comfy trainers in order to explore the city's museums and memorials. Everyone in Berlin (locals and tourists alike) dresses pretty casually, so trainers and dresses are totally the norm. The humidity nevertheless wreaked havoc on my frizz-prone hair- hats were definitely a must during my stay!

Day 3
Top: The White Company | Shorts: Warehouse | Bag: Hobbs NW3 Baystone Hat: H&M  | Sandals: New Look

For a day in the arty plazas of the city I opted for simple black and white (a nice contrast to the bright paintings or am I simply justifying my unambitious colour choices?) This white cotton blouse is a really easy top to wear and these wide silk shorts were a cool option in the heat.

Day 4
Dress: 18 And East | Trainers: Nike Roshe | Bag: Hobbs NW3 Baystone

By the final day my feet were exhausted: as much as I wanted to wear sandals with this dress, I just couldn't face them! Comfy shoes on, this dress was a good choice for enjoying a river boat tour. A quick change into sandals made it look a little less casual (perfect for tea and cake later on at the beautiful Fassbender & Rausch Chocolate House.) The print on this is so gorgeous and I love the belt at the front as an extra bit of detail.
