Queen Bee

Black and yellow. Lace and polka dots. Bumblebees and dandelions. Pairings that make me happy and remind me of summertime.

This look was inspired by the emerging colours of Spring. Who knew that while I was in Berlin, I found a tiny shopping mall and courtyard to match my outfit! This little courtyard is called the Rosenhöfe, near Hackesher Markt.

I’m wearing a blazer from H&M. I love the rose colour and it goes with everything, that I’m wearing it as a Spring jacket! My grey lace dress is from Forever XXI and my booties are from Amsterdam. It’s so funny how my outfit matched the shopping place to a tee!

I fell in love with the rose-painted stucco, and turquoise iron art deco details on the staircase, railings and awnings. It was a beautiful little square to enjoy a coffee or shop at H&M or MAC… as well as a couple other cute boutiques.

Spring is definitely sprouting in Europe. This cherry blossom branch was so fragrant and lovely to see.

My gold and black YSL Arty Ovale look-a-like from an Amsterdam Market adds a trendy and edgy touch to this look.

I could spend all day in that Barbie-pink shopping centre, with a scoop of strawberry gelato of course!
