The weather in Switzerland in the end of May and most of June has been shitty, meaning days, almost weeks, of downpour. It clearly had an impact on my mood, but also my wardrobe. It just never was the right time to stow away my sweaters or leather jacket. The only upside of all the rain was that it made the office work we had to do the past couple of weeks a lot more endurable – it didn’t feel like I was missing out on something. I know that the bad weather also came in quite handy for a lot of you who were studying for the finals!
But now summer has finally arrived in Switzerland as well, temperatures rose to 30 degrees within no time and my leather jacket all of a sudden became obsolete. With the warm weather and sunshine also came an urge to spend as much time outside as possible, strolling by the lake, cooling down with an ice cream, get a tan and spend nights out with friends at outdoor parties or by the lake (the ones following me on Snapchat may have seen that I’ve been out until the early morning a couple of times already…)
Speaking of partying, we didn’t want to go home after the Tokimonsta concert last Thursday, so we stayed out quite long that evening and since we may have drunk a little bit too much, for a Thursday at least, we had a slight hangover the following day. Sunglasses on (because it was sunny of course) we made our way to the newly opened Joe & the Juice in Sihlcity, Zurich, to get some juices and boost our energy levels, as well as taking these pictures. Turns out it wasn’t our most productive Friday, but at least you have some pictures to enjoy! Now that summer is upon us I think it is important to sometimes relax a little (or go out on a Thursday), true to the motto “Work hard, play hard”.
And with that said I wish you a fantastic weekend!
