Navy wool, fluffy black and white silk
I had the perfect weekend last week: drove to Duesseldorf on Friday without getting stuck in a traffic jam, picked up my boyfriend at the airport and checked in at the Steigenberger hotel. So far, so perfect. I will post a quick review of our stay at the Steigenberger later on. Anyway, back to the outfit. I already talked about the navy wool fedora on insta which I got when shopping in Hamburg the other week. I’m still obsessed with it and it was just perfect for a slightly sunny, slightly warmer day when you just can’t be bothered to properly do your hair (and the chance of a down-pour is 40%).
Also, I love my denim with a ripped hem to give my outfit a tiny little edge even when staying at a fancy hotel where ripped denim is simply out of place between grandma’s huge gold chains and the complete LV travel set getting unloaded from a Bentley. Yes, it was THAT fancy (and kinda weird, too). I wanted to add some dimension while still sticking to classic colors, so I mixed black and navy plus layered a white silk blouse underneath the sweater, plus, adding a fur vest on top. And let’s not forget about my all-time favorite Hogan booties. They are perfect for a long walk (or shopping trip). All in all, the perfect Duesseldorf-Outfit to stroll down the Kö.
By the way: mixing navy and black has been a no-go to me for a really long time. Don’t ask me why but I’m really stepping out of my comfort zone here. Plus, I really like the combo for those warmer winter days, because it doesn’t feel too much like spring but still isn’t all black-and-grey. Links will be down below as usual and I hope you enjoy the pics with a little sneek-peak of the place we stayed at in Duesseldorf.
P.S.: How great is this Cartier coffee table book we had in our room?
