Outfit for a Classical Music Night

Last Friday we went to a philharmonic concert. I promise to review that later but today I will tell you about my outfit for the concert.

It is important to assess the audience beforehand as you don’t want to find yourselves completely overdressed in a crowd of pretty casual people. This is exactly what awaits you here. Nevertheless, you still want to have that flare of going out.

Winter Is Coming Tonight but the Spring Is Already Here

Happy Easter to all those orthodox christians among us! Христос воскрес!

To those pagans and phantasy-lovers, happy 5th Game of Thrones season! I am celebrating both today after a very relaxing and sunny day here on the lake of Constance. Though the spring seemed to be role-playing Simon’s cat wishing to get into the house (a desperate metaphor for all cat owners), it’s now finally here.

Enjoy these warm pics.
