Travel Diary: Berlin Day One, Guten Tag

Guten tag! Today's post is coming to you from Berlin, Germany! As a little joint birthday present, Jack and I jetted off to the see the sights and get a little culture and so I thought I'd share my trip with you guys.

For my first day, I went for a simple, monochrome look with comfort. I really love white at the moment and feel it brightens up any look and gives it that summery vibe. The stripes give it that vintage feel along side the pleated skirt topped off with  some grungey chunky heels and a gold chain for some high fashion edge. Here is my Berlin day one look...

Wide Brim Fedora, H&M | Striped Crop Top, Topshop | Mid Gold Chain, Primark | Sport Waistband Pleat Midi Skirt, Topshop | Midi Ring Set of 4, Primark | Nails, Rimmel '701 White Hot' | Eyelashes, Elyure 202 | White Chunky Erica Heels, Lamoda UK

So we have landed and checked in to our amazing apartment which left us with nothing more to do then explore and wander the excitements that Berlin had to offer. Being on the doorstep of Checkpoint Charlie, within a few meters from our hotel, we were bombarded with the culture and the history of the city with huge breathtaking buildings, museums and historical sights. Every street is a photo opportunity with stunning atmospheric architecture and moving memorials for both World Wars and crimes against humanity. I won't go in to all the ins and outs of everything as I could go on forever and boast about the place but instead here are some photos of our first few hours in Berlin...
