Well, here you go, my first post hailing from Germany! Taken literally in front of where I work at Stylight HQ (seriously, everyone kept asking us when were going for lunch as they walked past to get their own), you might not be seeing Munich's most picturesque view, but it's the best lunchtime can offer! I keep trying to describe the city to my friends by comparing it to a British equivalent, but the closest I can get to is The City of London; it's affluent, with lots of business people and glass-fronted buildings, but there's the Altstadt (english: "old town") of archaic late Gothic buildings nestled right in the middle of it. I've hardly seen any of it other than the area immediately around where I work, but hopefully this weekend will involve me layering up and going exploring!

I've worked in an office before, so you would expect me to be better prepared for working in one again. You would be mistaken. I packed two leather skirts (yes, two) and a smock dress instead of anything vaguely acceptable, read: comfortable to sit at your desk in all day. Thankfully Closet got in touch just in time and speedily sent me out this Carven-esque dress of dreams. It would appear that I'm not completely over my collar phase, but I am 100% okay with it when dresses like this exist. Paired with a pair of borrowed shoes and my favourite lipstick, maybe it turns out that I can just about pull off workwear.


  1. Ah I hope you're having a ball in Munich. Can't wait to see more pictures!

  10. Rebecca, if it's possible I'd say you look more beautiful than you've ever looked. Everything about this screams timeless, classic, English beauty. You pull that collar off wonderfully, no need to break your love affair. And, of course, you are rocking the best accessory of all - your smile. Stunning.

  11. I really love those boots and that winking photo of you is my new favourite photo of you. YOU SO CUTE


  12. It sounds like you are settling in well (workwear issues aside!) and Munich sounds awesome, hope you get chance to explore properly soon :)
