I wanna let you know that all the clothes that I am wearing on the blog are in my wardrobe and that I am not accepting any other cooperations where I have to return the clothes and make it look like I have all these clothes but in fact I don’t. this would feel like cheating to you guys and to myself too. anyway, now that I have said that I wanna share some outfit inspirations with a basic silver top and pants by TARA JARMON available via @fashionvestis and how I was wearing this look in three different ways – hence the title: mix what you have!
top and pants TARA JARMON
clutch and sunglasses C&A
top TARA JARMON
jeans CURRENT ELLIOT
so with great basic pieces you can make even a small wardrobe very versatile its just the way you combine and mix what with what. for these inspirations I wanted the look to be light and elegant but suitable for all the different occasions.
what would i wear to a gallery opening?
what would I wear for a dinner or even a business meeting?
what would I wear every day?
what are basic pieces for me? hmm it could be the best white t-shirt or the perfect skinny jeans, the best fitting black blazer or comfy black heels. these are all things that can always pull a great outfit. a grat matching top and pants are also great as they can be worn individualy or together. so when I am talking about basic pieces I mean clothes that can be well combined.
I wanna present you my lovely grey bag called BOMBATA. it fits my ipad or it could also fit a laptop and thats what it is actually meant to be for – a business bag. BUT of course I wouldnt like a bag only for one purpose so I decided to make the BOMBATA business bag a bit more fashion 🙂 by wearing it like a normal bag.
I wore my grey BOMBATA yesterday and I have spent such a lovely afternoon in the sun at KABAR in Basel. sooo wonderful that October brings such nice weather! and did you spot my big watch? isnt it a super nice piece? Its made and designed by ADVOLAT a swiss watch brand based in Basel. I will soon show you the whole outfit. stay tuned. xx
awww! I am so happy with my new baby “the original” filofax! this collection is made in the UK and out of real leather. I am a huge filofax fan and had my white PANAMA for a good time and was so happy to visit the filofax distributor of switzerland in lausanne and exchange my old planner for a new one! thanks for having me, it was a blast!
have you ever wondered where the name filofax came from?
it comes from <files of facts> and became filofax. based on a true story: “1940 – during a German air raid in World War II, the business premises of Norman & Hill (now filofax) are bombed and razed to the ground. Grace Scurr was the heroine as she had her personal “file of facts” created with all supplier and customer data, which she always carried with her. only thanks to this information, the operation could be rebuilt.“ more info about filofax here >>
so I am aware that we live in 2014 where everything is digital BUT although I have my second brain called iphone/ipad and imac I still like to have something haptic like notes, paper and all that so for me the perfect organisation is a mix between digital and analog 🙂 “the original” collection has a strap for the iphone/phone which makes it the perfect businessplanner!
so are you familiar with the filofax system? no? well, let me tell you what awaits you! you buy your planner and you can add whatever you need and desire: addressbook, worldmap, blank notes, sticky notes, rulers, to do lists, daily planners and of course the diary.
