BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS

BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS

Can you remember the ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ song by Green Day? Well, where else to think of the lyrics than in a city full of aspirations, hopes and glamour. Exactly, Los Angeles! To be more precisely on Hollywood Boulevard, which embodies the American dream come true. A place known for it’s glitz and glamour, fame and fortune.

I have already visited Hollywood Boulevard back in 2007, when I spent some time in Santa Monica for a language course. So I was really excited when we chose a nearby accommodation during our road trip. This place is already quite breathtaking during the day. But when the sun goes down and the lights turn on it is just magical. Melissa and I strolled through the area even though we were really tired after traveling from Carlsbad to LA that day. For the great occasion of walking on Hollywood Blvd at night I threw on my figure hugging black dress and some red heels. I lived slightly on the edge by wearing a MIAMI snap at the west coast – how dare I! But tried to make up to it with wearing a LA engraved backpack. Haha.

LEVITATED MASS

LEVITATED MASS

When in LA … go and visit LACMA – the Los Angeles County Museum of Art with this large-scale sculpture called Levitated Mass. Love this kind of art and really enjoyed this place. Needless to say how much I miss this city! Love being in the city of angeles and know for sure that I have and will live there some day. Since we haven’t had much time we only strolled around outside the museum. Well the Californian weather was all warm and sunny so the outfit was kept to a minimum like the art displayed. And as a tourist you just know that there will be a lot of walking – so flats it is!

Have you ever been in Los Angeles and did you also go to LACMA?

STOP WARS

STOP WARS

And here is another outfit we shot while strolling through the Wynwood Art District. This part of Miami is sooo worth a visit and I highly recommend doing a guided tour where you will get a lot of input and interesting facts about the murals and their artists. After seeing an Instagram pic by Toni Mahfud I definitely had to shoot infront of the mural by Eduardo Kobra. I love this painting and the message ‘STOP WARS’. I hope you guys like it as much as I do as well as the outfit I am wearing. Had to opt for a simple look for not disturbing the overall picture.

KEY WEST BEAUTY

KEY WEST BEAUTY

A look we shot in Key West during our Florida Road Trip. How beautiful is this city? Honestly, I love this place so much. Just take a look at the gorgeous Conch Houses – so nice. And since it was so sunny and warm, simplicity is KEY haha. Worn my new summer dress, some shiny sandals and there you go. Hope you guys are having a nice and relaxed sunday – I am off to work now.

WYNWOOD WALLS

WYNWOOD WALLS

Sponsored by The Art Experiences/Anzeige – 

Post travel blues! I’m almost one week back home in Germany and already miss being abroad. My friend and I spent two beautiful weeks in Florida as well as on a Caribbean cruise. Time to relax, tan and explore. Exactly what we needed! But now I got to replenish my bank account hehe. For now this is my first look from Miami when we visited the Wynwood Art District and took part in a 1,5 hours guided tour* around the area. Thanks to The Art Experience and our great tour guide Marco we got to know so many interesting things about the place, the murals and the artists. This gorgeous Wynwood wall was painted by Miss Van, which I absolutely loved.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME ADVIZE

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME ADVIZE

In collaboration with Zalando Advize / Anzeige –

Are you ready for some ADVIZE? As a fashion and travel blogger I am always on the hunt for some inspiration. Whether it is fashion, lifestyle or travel wise, I think we all feel influced by things we are interested in. For me, this means I get inspired by traveling, meeting new cultures, experiencing different lifestyles and rummaging through various social media channels, online magazines and other blogs.

So when I heard of the new online fashion guide ADVIZE launched by online retailer Zalando, I was really surprised since you’ll get a lot from only one page. It provides you with the latest news about fashion, lifestyle and music. Whether you keep yourself up-to-date via fashion tutorials (also menswear related), watch DIY Videos or listen to some new music playlist created by MC Fitti. It’s like an inspirational platform for various topics. There is something for everyone. So, where do you guys get your inspiration from?

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE

While sitting on a plane for 12 hours, I had some time to edit couple of pictures from my road trip in the US back in October 2015. These pics were taken at South Lake Tahoe, where we did a little stop while traveling from San Francisco towards Carson City. So Melissa and I enjoyed some time off from all the road tripping and enjoyed this beautiful nature over there.

Speaking of road trip! The next one just started! Yesterday, I arrived in Miami Beach and will be spending four days here before heading to Key West. If you have any tips please let me know!

BY THE BAY PART 2

BY THE BAY PART 2

TGIF – Time to relax ! This week was intense – my to-do list seems endless these days. But let’s talk about the Bomber Jacket Trend. I am a huge fan of those jackets and already own a couple. One of them is this green one from Glamorous, which I had with me while traveling in the US last year. We shot some really cool outfit pictures with it in Morro Bay, which I already presented you guys in the first BY THE BAY post. Still had couple of pictures from the shoot which I had to publish. So here you have this look again, since it is one of my favorites. Can’t wait for spring to wear this outfit again. What do you think of this trend piece?

WE ARE ALL MAD HERE

WE ARE ALL MAD HERE

We are all mad here – just look at my last picture haha. This is already my last look from Vienna which we shot in the 25hours Hotel I stayed at. If you remember my previous post about the hotel, you might know that the interior is quite extraordinary. So, Melissa and I had to take some outfit photos there before our departure. We sneaked into the “Kleiner Dachboden” on the 8th floor, where the room is furnished like an old living room. Looking out the window you will get an impressive view over Vienna. I wore my Marble Printed Dress from & other Stories, but it still was really cold so I wore a black long sleeve dress with a turtle neck underneath. What do you think about this combination? GittaWitzel_WeAreAllMadHere_OtherStories-4

CHECK – IN : 25HOURS HOTEL VIENNA

CHECK – IN : 25HOURS HOTEL VIENNA

Recently, I visited Vienna together with Melissa, Ana & Justyna, where we checked into the 25hours Hotel Vienna / at MuseumsQuartier. Since it also was my birthday, it was the perfect occasion for this little getaway. I wanted to explore this beautiful city for quite some time, especially because I have heard so much positive things about it. And I have not been disappointed – such a gorgeous city!

The hotel was unique on its own. Once you entered the building you know why you have been warned with ‘we are all mad here’. The interior, atmosphere and employees were exceptional. Each hotel of 25hours has a very specific theme and is designed accordingly into the very last detail. But see for yourself!

CONCRETE JUNGLE

CONCRETE JUNGLE

Hello from San Francisco! Well not physically though but I still have so many pictures from my road trip I want to share with you :) Today I am presenting an outfit we shot in this concrete jungle after we have been walking the whole day to visit the Golden Gate Bridge and The Painted Ladies. So please be gracious with my tired and unrefreshed face and my hair which obviously is not #onfleek haha. At least I wore a pretty headband to let it look a bit more styled.

That day I wore a pencil skirt for the first time ever and I kind of liked it. But there are just some days, where you don’t feel comfortable in it – you girls know what I am talking about.  So here is my grey pencil skirt paired with a casual top and heels. I did wear flats for all the touristic activities we did prior to these pictures though, otherwise I wouldn’t have survived climbing up and down those streets :) Do you wear pencil skirts as well ? GittaWitzel_SanFrancisco_pencilskirt_top_highheels-37

SANTA CRUZ BEACH BOARDWALK

SANTA CRUZ BEACH BOARDWALK

Some mixed photos from our short stay in Santa Cruz (California). We stopped by this really nice amusement park called Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk while traveling towards San Francisco. Unfortunately the park was still closed upon our arrival, but it was fun to just walk along and soak it all in. Amusement parks always have a special impact, especially when they are located right next to the sea. You always feel like a kid again since it brings back so many childhood memories :) I remember a lot of school trips and private visits and always enjoyed it. The park offers various attractions and nice shops paired with the view of the pacific ocean – simply magical. We also walked along the pier to get a nice view of the park and there were a lot of seals chilling in the sun. Can you tell that I like those cute little creatures haha!? I would love to swap roles. Just relaxing and eating the whole day, from time to time a dip in the water … couldn’t think of anything better haha!
