Wandering Round Mudam

Dress from Kivari/ Bag from Givenchy/ Shoes from Gucci/ Sunglasses from Le Specs

This past week I’ve had a friend come visit me in Luxembourg. I have loved showing him around this tiny, beautiful country that I get to call home while simultaneously rediscovering some of my favourite spots. One of those spots is the modern art museum Mudam which is nestled away in the European Quarter. As you would imagine, the exhibitions change on a pretty frequent basis but right now a lot of it focuses on sculptures made out of clay. If I’m completely honest with you, I prefer more controversial and ‘out there’ exhibitions. For example, I really loved the ‘Hyper Real’ exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia which featured infamous world dictators driving around on automated wheelchairs, giants sitting on chairs and women being peeled out of bananas. I couldn’t make this stuff up! For any Australian readers, I had a look and, unfortunately, the aforementioned exhibition is no longer running but you can check out photos from the exhibition here. Back to Mudam, it’s still definitely worth a visit and has great pieces of modern art. My favourite permanent installation is the black ink fountain that you can see in the picture above. I’m always SO tempted to dip my finger into it but I have to restrain myself, haha! Maybe if there wasn’t an employee constantly standing by the fountain, I would do it… One day. You heard it here first.

I recommend unwinding at the Mudam Café with a glass of rosé. They give you breadsticks with whatever you order and it’s so hard to stop yourself from mindlessly eating them all. My friend kept telling me to stop munching on them so we could get a decent photo! Just thought I’d keep it real with you and tell you that I swapped the rosé for breadsticks as soon as we took these photos. Don’t always believe the photos.

This flowy Kivari dress has been surgically attached to my body ever since I bought it in April. I am absolutely obsessed and can’t stop wearing it. It works for so many occasions and I love the boho feel to it. You can’t really see it, but the bell sleeves are also incredible. The only issue is that the dress has shrunk in the washing machine and I’m trying my best to delicately stretch it out. Any tips? I wish I had taken proper detail shots of my outfit but I guess I’m slowly easing my way into blogging again and it just slipped my mind. Next time! Overall, a super simple and comfortable outfit for walking around the city all day. And very forgiving if you eat one too many breadsticks… 😉

PS. If you’re heading to the museum, it’s worth checking out the beautiful view behind Mudam. The photo doesn’t do it justice but it boasts beautiful views of the valley and the other side of Luxembourg City. Also, Philharmonie is right by Luxembourg and is great for getting that beautiful all white background!

 

What have you been up to this weekend?
