*Out and about with Sandra today, who kindly snapped this picture of me. This oversized black coat from Cos has been my companion all through this winter and I’ve loved wearing it. But I also hope that this week will be the last week I’ll have to. Come on, sun!

*Until summer comes, I’ll be listening to this song. A lot. Swinging Party from Kindness, found on one of the excellent playlists from Swedish brand Whyred on Spotify.

*And here’s a another song for sunny days: Evening Ceremony by Active Child. (via Reigen)

*Favourite recent blog discovery: Thug Kitchen. A take no prisoners approach to cooking with kick-ass recipes. Literally. To quote: “We all know your punk ass doesn’t eat enough greens.”

*Also, Des Hommes et Des Chatons. Because: men and kittens, what could possibly go wrong with that? (via Raetherei)

*A week without mentioning & Other Stories? Not as long as they keep doing such great things like the collaboration with bag designer Clare Vivier. Stunning.

*The “Just Cool” moodboards on They All Hate Us are, well, just cool. Here’s the latest. Big fan of the blog in general. Damn, those Aussie chicks and their style.

*I want to see this movie right now. We’ll all have to wait until June. Until then, here’s the trailer for Before Midnight. (thanks for the reminder, Okka)

*I wrote about my love for the classic “I heart New York” t-shirts for Glam this week, recently re-ignited by the current 3.1 Phillip Lim collection. Share the love here.

*You know how I said that I’m trying to be more considerate in my spending and invest in classic pieces? I still couldn’t help myself against impulsively buying this coral tunic from Zara this week. Because it looks like a promise of summer.

Have a good week!

      Danke, Natalia! ‘Thug Kitchen’ ist ein Kracher, oder? Den Spinat-Smoothie muss ich auch unbedingt probieren. Isser denn gut?
