aww, I found so many wonderful pieces at C&A and want to share with you some stylish and versatile outfits. As the title mentions, FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION, I want to inspire you to wear some of your pieces that you might have already have in your closet in a different way.
The first look is very basic but a rather chic look. I somehow always feel a bit more chic when wearing a black/white look. But maybe thats just me. 🙂 Anyhow, I put together a white ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with an oversized black lace detail tank top and wear it with blue skinny jeans and a black/beige clutch. To make the look more casual one can wear sneakers. The look can be easily changed by wearing heels or like in my case below to wear small black heels, that make it all a bit more elegant.
And now I wanna get to my second look inspiration. A mustard ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with high waist jeans and green/brown tweed heels, gold jewelry and an oversized denim jacket and a big green alpaca scarf. The color combo of that look is so totally me. I love the mix of denim, green and yellow. Also in that case you can easily switch the shoes and make the look a bit more everyday.

Last but not least I am showing you a look that I have already featured on the blog before. The article was called: “How to wear a Summer Dress in Fall” read more here >> I am still so much in love with this kind of layering look. As it is no longer fall and we have moved into winter I am adding some thick tights and would switch the flat shoes with warm boots and finish the look with a warm coat or wear a big scarf.

I hope you have found my outfit inpirations helpful and that it will inspire you to wear your clothes in a new way. Most of the basic pieces, like the ripped shirts, the tank top and the long sweater, I have found at C&A in Basel. I am always amazed about how many cool and versatile pieces I can find there. The clutch that I am wearing in look #1 is also by C&A and I have used it so much thru out summer and realized that its a great all year around clutch.
Special thanks to Miguel for taking the photos of me. X
thank you C&A for taking me to Amsterdam and showing me the upcoming C&A fall winter collection 2016. with weather in june like this I feel that I am not far away from wearing fall/winter clothes and can not wait to shop my fall winter collection. the weather has been a serious nightmare with endless rain and very cool temperatures. I can not believe that it was warmer in april than it is in june. nevertheless, I wanna tell you a bit more about the presentation of the fall winter collection 2016.
the location of the event was spectacular. there was a beautiful green C&A logo in the entrance that led into a round event hall that had a black curtain drawn all around. after a quick introduction the curtain was lifted and a 360 degree fashion show with the complete fall winter collection 2016 was behind it.
that was a wonderful surprise. we were then divided into groups and got an introduction to every collection: men, denim, lingerie, clockhouse, accessories etc. we were given tags with our name and publication title and had the possibility to give them feedback by hanging them to your favorite piece. let me tell you, there are going to be soooo many cool pieces for the fall winter collection 2016 that it was really hard to place only four cards 🙂
the big thing of the new collection is going to be denim. there is a new collection in bio cotton with new shapes and cuts. we will see the return of flare leg, bootcut and highrise. for men there is going to be a new trend called stacked, that means that the jeans are too long and stack on the bottom. for women there will be a cropped bootcut and cropped flare cut and as already mentioned there is going to be the return of the high rise. my favorite denim pieces are the quitled indigo jacket and the bow tie blouse.
in addition to the new denim collection there is a nature inspired color palette with comfy and warm colors that give you the need to cover yourself up. inspired by the idea that nature should be part of everyday life, the fall winter collection uses organic textures and delicate feminine detailing to create beautiful pieces to wrap up warm in.
there are going to be some really cool pieces like a asymmetric poncho, a checked belted coat or the white knitted longline coat that you can see in the picture below (and in the back you can see a lady wearing the denim bow tie blouse).
aaawww, these are my two favorite pieces, the white longline coat and the short beige faux leather jacket. and soon there will be an overview with my favorite items of the fall winter collection with inspiration on how to wear all those cool new fall winter pieces. stay tuned.
have you been to Amsterdam before? I have been several times and have to say that it is one of my favorite european cities. we were staying at the double tree HILTON very close to the train station which was a great location to explore the city from. in case you have not read my post about AMSTERDAM click here –>
I found some awesome pieces from the new fall/winter collection at C&A in Basel, Switzerland and some of the pieces are indeed available via the onlineshop, these are the pieces that you can see above.
I found another denim shirt with embelishment that is not in the online shop (yet) – lets see maybe I can add it to the list later. anyways, I will soon upload outfit inspirations including these new fall pieces. if the weather is decent I can shoot this weekend. stay tuned. X
I did something that I rarely ever do. I am wearing top and bottom the same brand and it is not H&M, hahahaha. : ) nooo, it is TARA JARMON. a big up for this amazing french designer.
more about TARA JARMON here >>
a rather simple but AHA outfit. one color is dominating and there is lots of sparkle and shine from the top and pants. therefore I didnt feel like adding any heavy golden or silver jewelry and only chose two matching accessories: the white shoes by BATA and the cute clock bag and black sunglasses by C&A. I absolutely love the shoes with this outfit for me this is a match made in heaven as I first did not really know with what I should wear these super high white heels.
I first fell in love with the silver top and actually wanted to pair it with the red skirt that unfortunately had a broken zipper but then in the end I found the matching pants and taataaaaa this is MY FASHION VESTIS LOOK. I was asked to join a blogger contest where we can win a 3000 CHF shopping voucher and a photoshooting. as soon as I will have the link where you can vote I will put it HERE >> LINK <<
hahaha as you can see from the phot below. I really dont know and I also dont really care : )
It is a top and a dress, lets agree on that. I have found this piece on SALE at h&m for 20 CHF and I wanna thank Freya very much for the birthday voucher that I used for this purchase – thank you so much for coming to my party!
from the front it looks like a dress and from the side it looks like a top.
today is the first day of our trip to SICILY and of course I have also brought this top/dress to wear during the vacation – I try to take some really nice sicilian photos in castellammare del golfo. until then stay tuned for something nice tomorrow. X
ouff.. I finally packed my bags for my mini trip to PARIS – starting today in the morning! I will travel with the TGV and since I live in Basel it only takes around 3 hours!
packing my bags was a hassle – like always… I just find it very hard to know what I want to be wearing another day – fashion is something spontaneous for me and thats why I also tend to over pack.. this time I just took three different outfits and a couple of shoes for day and night. so I am very proud already about that 🙂 C&A invited me for a bloggers presstrip and I will keep you up to date about all the nice things I see. stay tuned via my SOCIAL MEDIA and maybe I will find time to upload an article via the blog under the EVENTS category. X
so let me start with the amazing news first: I am going to Paris on Monday early in the morning and will stay until tuesday night. for that very occasion I was shopping for a nice dress. Indeed I found one and also bought it but I absolutely didnt like the buttons. I knew I had to change them and was not so sure what kind of buttons to get. I have a huge collections of single buttons that I collect from dresses and blouses but somehow I didnt want to put different buttons on that white lace blouse dress. and then I found the right pair. here you can see the new and the old buttons, what do you think? isnt it a super nice upgrade for the dress?
I will soon tell you more details about my trip to Paris and hope to share many nice photos with you. so I was thinking what to pack for a two day trip to Paris? I decided to travel with the black jumpsuit and my chunky sandals and to wear the white lace dress with the wooden sandals for the event. also I wanna bring my brown and my black sunglasses and also the beige DKNY bag will work for both outfits. thats what I think now but lets see how it will turn out in the end 🙂 packing is not my most favorite thing to do as I always have the tendency to bring too much. thats why I am very pround of my very basic packing approach!
I also have some amazing new red/brown pants that I could wear for the way back but I am not sure with what to wear them. lets see, more infos coming soon. X
spring has begun and I started to change my wardrobe and I brought the nice spring coats from the back to the front. today I wanna show you a very nice simple two tone look with beige and pink!
I love the COSMPOPARIS heels and I am more than happy to have found them ON SALE last year! the pink coat is kind of famous as it has made its way to some international blogs – have a look here <<or here <<or here <<

I love mix and matching one or two colors and I think that this is a very nice way to create stylish looks with little effort. I am more than happy about springs arrival and the only thing I have to get used to is the lost hour in the morning 🙂
HAPPY SUNDAY everyone – lots of love and try to relax and maybe start reading your new book or clean up your closet 🙂 X
yay – the sun is out we already passed the month of January so what I am trying to say is we are almost done with winter. or at least thats what I extremly wish for. at the H&M Clarashopping I have found this lovely striped dress for 29.90 CHF and as I was returning several bags of old clothes I got a 5 CHF discount voucher that I have used for the dress – so even a bigger bargain!
the color green mixed with blue and white is a cry for summer – not kidding this reminds me so much of the clear water of the ocean. currently I have seen many cool things in the color blue and green. last week at the Estée Lauder press event I was given a fantastic blue eyeliner pencil in the color COBALT BLUE and it is a dream – in fact I am wearing it today on my upper lash line. another color that drew my attention is the KURE BAZAAR nailpolish in KALE – a wonderful dark subtle green! unfortunately the new green is not on the chart yet. more about these nailpolishes soon on the blog.
another outfit on the blog, this time I am layering my green fluffy funny COMME DES GARCONS jacket by JUNYA WATANABE with the super warm down jacket by C&A (fair down production – read more here >>) this look is a very casual one with a big mix of high and low end clothes. something I love to do is mixing styles and different brands – how boring would it look to wear a head to toe GUCCI outfit – no thanks!

yay – happy weekend – every day so many bad sad horrible things happen – and I m very sorry for all the lost lives. these moments I especially love to share something nice with you. I focus on small things and things that make the tiny difference like sending lovely letters to friends or having a nice meal with a friend. I hope you will have a wonderful weekend!
today’s fashion pick is my new colorful sequin skirt that rocks every outfit. I found it on SALE – half price so it was perfect for my January budget 😉
