Beanie pimping and Easter celebrations

Easter is a holiday I never really got. I grew up in a more or less ignostic environment and even though I loved searching for eggs (never the chocolate version but the hard boiled and self-colored ones), the actual context was known to me, but never from importance. Nevertheless being home alone in my Hamburg flat seemed strange to me and I was happy to take a long-missed opportunity to finally visit my very best friend in her tiny village. I should have gone earlier, seeing that it is only a 90 minute trip by car (and a 4 hour ride with trains and buses). It was a beautiful weekend (at least till now) and I do not regret not posting this earlier, because that would have meant missing some valuable minutes.

Just a week ago I finally revisited my hairdresser. And even though its practically spring, German weather decided to bring forth snow and cold temperatures, so leaving a heated environment (and a hot climate as the Indian) with a pixie hair cut and no headgear is close to suicide. Nevertheless I did this, so I had to buy a beanie during my grocery shopping. Well, I believe this beanie would have been bought no matter what climate we had, because I was looking for the prefect grey beanie for the whole past season. My newly found love for One-Euro-Stores is just about to grow with every visit (they got decent sewing machine needles, amazing leather glue, and, and, and... ) and my beanie is just the perfect traveling companion since hats are quite annoying with the brim.

I'm still working on my camera skills and I had to learn that taking pictures without a tripod is not that easy. Well, time will hopefully improve my ability to take decent pictures...
Long text, short tutorial: No beanie from Esther without some personal fix by Esther. I first thought about going completely Jil Sander and stuff, but since it was the end of March and the stores closed, I used some beloved lace trim I bought at a local market once.

Pretty easy steps:
1. Pin the lace trim to your beanie.
2. Sew it on.

And there is me, walking through a snowy landscape just before the beginning of April, can you believe it. Last week I enjoyed 45 ° C in Ahmedabad and now the temperatures are just above the freezing point. Fingers crossed I will be rocking my Indian shoes somehow this year (A update of my amazing buys will be coming anytime soon). Until then... let's see that we do not end up in a Game of Throne scenario with endless winter.
