This is one of my favorite outfits ever! It is not the outfit itself but this jacket is just one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe!
It took so long before I could get my hands on it, maybe this is another reason why I love it so much…I bought it on Etsy from a shop called Protect Talibés: all the products are handmade with African wax in Senegal and when I saw this bomber jacket with the fans I just died! I bought it immediately but I received it months later due to the fact that the postal service was incredibly slow and on top of that it was made for me which took a couple of weeks before sending it.
When it arrived I was all excited: beautiful fit and wonderful fabric, I just couldn’t wait to wear it, even if in Milan there were more than 30 degrees! Fortunately in Munich it was fresh enough to wear it in July so, here I am, just after a long workday (my tired face says it all!!) but just before a good dinner in Munchner Freiheit and of course a good Bavarian beer!
I wore this amazing piece with black tee from Asos and black culottes from Dixie. I added my favorite black mules of this summer from & Other Stories and my African handmade necklace.
Although I visited Munich many times, mostly for work, I never visited the Englischer Garten until last summer. A couple of times I missed it because I didn’t have enough time and when I visited in 2015 I spent a lot of time visiting art galleries and the old city center that I didn’t make time for a visit of this beautiful garden in the city center. During that weekend in Munich we decided that it was time to fill this gap and we enjoyed a beautiful stroll in the park: the weather was amazing and the park was full of life, which made it even better.
We also managed to see the famous Chinese Tower inside the Garden (Chinesischer Turm) and we took a couple of pictures of this beautiful area of Munich. We also joined the many Germans and tourists drinking beer in the park, even if we were supposed to head to Georgenhof, a famous Bavarian restaurant where we ate (personally for the second time there!) the best kaiserschmarren ever! It is a typical Austrian-Bavarian, a sort of shredded pancake with apple sauce, nuts, cherries, plums, caramelized raisins and almonds…it wasn’t a good day to stay on diet!
It has to be said that before the English Garden we spent the morning at the amazing Peter Lindbergh exhibition at the Kunsthalle, so we definitely needed some sugar after our busy Sunday morning around Munich!
I wore Joanie Clothing retro tee, Dixie black culottes and two of my favorite African wax accessories: a beautiful handmade turban by my super talented friend Madame Ilary and my new favorite wax tote from Wax Is The New Black that I found on Afrikrea marketplace. White sneakers Nike 4 & Other Stories.
