Okay, I'll admit it, these photos are complete rip offs of Carmen's and Anni's, but when you have somewhere this cool literally just outside your office (one of the conference rooms is just to the left of these photos), then it'd be silly to not use it to your advantage. Or I'm just getting lazier when it comes to finding somewhere to take outfit photos. And, let's be honest, it's probably the latter.

I used to be a real Topshop girl when I was a student and rich (i.e. either had a part time job or a loan, plus student discount), but since its prices have risen and they add a good 15% for the novelty of paying in Euros, I've found myself looking further afield. My mum got me this blouse for christmas, and I've been saving it for a special occasion of sorts, so when the sun decided to shine I thought it was about time I debuted it.

In less sartorial news, I've managed to drag myself away from bed to get to the office to use their wifi as the router at mine's been playing up. Again. I would mind significantly less if Lauren and I hadn't decided to drink a lot of cocktails and end up in Atomic Cafe till closing time and I'd managed to get more than four hours sleep. That's dedication to getting myself into a blogging routine, if ever I saw it. I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me.

Countdown: two weeks. Yesterday I checked-in for my flight home, had a quick phone interview and generally stressed even more about moving home before cooking dinner, and trying (in vain, I add) to relax a little. Thankfully it's May Day tomorrow and Germans celebrate it on the day itself so we're heading out for Nina's birthday and I can't imagine anything better than spending a day away from my computer screen.

I believe voting ends for the Company blog awards tonight too, so if you fancied voting for it's cohen in the "best personal style" section you'll have to do so soon!

I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been.

You know you've been talking to Kavita too much when you order a pair of frames like these ;) If you're a long-time reader of It's Cohen/a long-suffering friend, you'll be more than aware of my love for novelty sunglasses with normal outfits. This Persunmall pair is no different, and I can see them coming with me in many a beach bag and festival rucksack - yes pals, you're going to have to be seen with me I'm afraid. I think I've managed to tone things down with a completely monochrome outfit and a slick of red lipstick this time, and I didn't receive too many odd looks from my colleagues as I rolled up to work that morning.

Recently things have been getting a little stressful as I try to sort out how I'm going to transport everything I've accumulated back to the UK, cancel phone contracts and bank accounts, and just generally everything involved with ending a job. The perfect way to take the edge off things and forget about it all was with roughly twelve hours of solid drinking at Frühlingsfest (think Oktoberfest, but with less tourists), and finally found the excuse to wear my dirndl! I'm feeling a little sniffly as a result, but there really is nothing better than getting involved and going on fair ground rides in traditional German dress, and don't tell me that there is.

And, if you're feeling particularly reckless today, I'd appreciate a vote in the "best personal style blog" at the Company blog awards. I don't expect a look-in in the slightest, but it would be nice!

One sure-fire way to amaze your international colleagues is by turning up to work with a beehive. I'm always impressed when the spanish flip one of their potato-saturated omelettes with ease, the french make perfect crêpes on three hours sleep and a hangover, and the swedes manage to look effortlessly cool despite them living out of a suitcase. Us brits? Grab a can of hairspray and arm yourself with bobby pins. Even though I'm not proud to let this particularly messy day serve as an example, it certainly cheered up a few of my friends on an otherwise grey morning, and it's always good to brighten someone's day.

And it justifies bringing a massive can of hair spray to another country, right?

For some reason these photos have been sitting in a draft unused since February, so I decided that I might as well publish them while I've got a free morning. This is such a "get up and go" outfit for me, namely due to it requiring minimal effort and still looking put together enough to fool people into thinking that I didn't just snooze my alarm too many times that morning to do anything other than grab whatever happened to be at the top of the clothes pile. This top is the only scuba item I have, and I'm thoroughly disappointed by this trend due to its lack of snorkels; it's false advertising. I do, however, quite like the shape, its structured style hiding all manner of bread-based sins, and it's got slightly more to it than a normal white t-shirt. Add some boots and fedora, and who would know that I'd ran to catch the U-bahn that morning?

In contrast, this morning has been spent in my pyjamas booking my flights home and wishing there was an easy jet version of a costa card/they'd give me a free loyalty cuppa on the flight. The rest of my day will probably involve several cups of tea I've had to make myself (I know, what a chore) as I've come down with a horrible cold, certainly not the way I expected to spend my day off work. Hope you're all having a good Good Friday with considerably less germs than I've got!

When I'm in London during the summer, it's not unlikely that you'll find me in one of its many parks with a picnic and Pimm's, but it took me a good few months to journey up to Olympiapark, which I'm going to blame on the weather - I'm British, after all. As the stadium was built from a dent left by a bomb dropped during the war, this area of Munich has some pretty dramatic landscaping, and it was odd to be wandering round in the bright sun while there was still snow atop some of the hills surrounding us. After spending the day sitting by the lake with a beer, and then hiring a pedalo and seeing the views from the water, I quickly nabbed these photos (under Stephanie's "creative direction") before the sun went down. Here's hoping the weather behaves so that we can do this more often!

If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed that yesterday Lauren and I went to Innsbruck, Austria (instead of Zurich, due to deciding to do things a little bit too last minute), which was so beautiful I can't even begin to describe. Or rather, I'm going to do a blog post on it, so don't want to chat too much now. I've had to head to the office to blog as for some reason my wifi at home's decided to go AWOL, but otherwise I've had a pretty good weekend so far, and I hope you're all enjoying the time off.

Taking me higher than I've ever been before.

Sometimes I have this rather grand idea about how an outfit will look, not be so convinced when I try it on, and then realise I'm late and have to leave wearing it anyway. Here is a perfect example. Although I like the idea of it (come on, stripes and jeans, what could go wrong?), I feel like it's just not quite right, somehow. Regardless of being able to tell that I'd indulged in Burger House the weekend before (no regrets, that burger was amazing), I think this would've been made better with a statement necklace; I've been eyeing up this one's chunky square jewels, or considering something more classic like pearls. That, or I've been reading Arabella's blog too much and think everything deserves a bit of sparkle, you decide. Right now it seems like I'm not being the fussiest of bloggers when it comes to photos, but I guess when life is so hectic and fast-paced a photo in which I haven't captured my best angle or my hair's frizzy hardly seems the end of the world, and it seemed a shame to not use the photos when I quite like the background and lighting. Just need to work on the subject...

On another note, have any of you ever been to Zurich before? Lauren and I are planning to head there for a weekend soon (...on Friday), and would love to hear if you have any recommendations for hotels or things we must do and see, so please do leave a comment or tweet me if you have some little nuggets of wisdom to share!

I know it's something of a blogger cliché, but I have always wanted to take some outfit photos in front of a tree as it blossoms in all its pink glory. When Lauren suggested a trip to the botanical gardens I didn't have anything more than floral photos in mind, but as soon as we walked through the gate and I saw the pink out of the corner of my eye I did dramatically think "it is time". So here I am, pretending to be girly, and being eternally glad that the bruise on my leg isn't showing, you can't hear any of the swearing as I just miss the tram, or know the sheer amount of beer that's been consumed this week alone. It's amazing what a pretty dress can do, even if I apparently can't pull it down at the front; I knew I'd slip up at some point.
