Do you guys ever feel like you were born to be something? As in, destined? Yeah, I’ve been feeling like I was born 30.

Don’t ask me why, but this was my first thought this morning – have I always been like this?

I’ve been thinking about the way I face certain things in life, mostly how I interact with other people. I have the tendency to be intimidating and I think this is an outcome of my way of thinking. Or maybe the fact that my eyeballs sometimes look huge?! Anyway.

Today’s post is a last minute solution for lunchtime and also a small diy example.

I’ve worn this jacket a lot lately. If I’m to be honest it used to be my brother’s but didn’t fit anymore, so he gave it away to me ❤ I removed several patches it had sewed on and replaced them with an old chain choker, safety pins and embellishments. The golden detail on my pocket used to be on a pillow in my living room. It fell off so I thought what the hell! The trick is to not throw anything away

That way you end up with a house full of crap.

So maybe the trick is to not throw anything with actual POTENTIAL away.

Yes, much better.

As for the whole outfit, I had this thing to attend and literally threw on whatever was lying around.

I tried to give it a sexy twist by tucking half my shirt in and letting one shoulder out. Browns and reds look ideally good on striped pieces, so my burgundy leather skirt turned out to be a great choice.

I swear it scares the crap out of me thinking that in a few days from now it will be illegal to walk out of the apartment in leather goods.

Especially boots. Summer’s really around the corner – everyone happy but Violet, yay. Therefore, I’m enjoying my last few days of boot freedom like there’s no tomorrow. I have to embrace this time. These I got on a discount while in Berlin some time ago and I’ve been wearing them with pretty much anything ever since, as camel matches most of the other colors. You guys know I’m crazy about fancy heels and this one sure looks like art.
