I got a new cashmere top and a new hair color – yay two new things that I am very happy about. I have already told you several things about my lovely hairdresser Stefanie Winter, she hasher salon just behind Aeschenplatz and I really love the ombre dipdye result – like this I dont have to color my roots every two weeks. yes, you heard correctly, my hair is grwoing super fast!
again I am wearing a two color look and I feel that this is such an easy way to create a gorgeous outfit. black and mud I find this such an elegant combo!
and here you can see my lovely hair color from the back – I am totally in love with the gradient of the three colors the dark brown, caramel and copper.
and since it is monday I wanna share with you my biggest smile of the day! HAPPY MONDAY to all of my lovely readers!
for the readers among you that remember criss cross and how they wore their pants the wrong way around I had exactly such a moment when I was wearing this outfit last week. 🙂
the gorgeous black PARENTI’S cashemere sweater has a HUGE V-neck and I really didnt feel like wearing a top below or taping the sweater to my boobs – so I took a criss cross decision and wore the sweater the wrong way around and it actually didnt feel so bad at all and also it didnt look too bad either. for future times I would totally do it the same way!

the spring/summer collection by Parenti’s is out and there are lots of nice cashmere, silk and cashmere/cotton mix pieces with a super awesome lookbook. above you can see some lovely photos of the models wearing an elegant and comfy mix of the collection.
my favorite piece is this one:
aaww – I can totally see myself wearing this maxi dress on a windy summer evening together with my favorite sandals and a washed out jeans jacket! aaah I can not wait for the warm days to arrive! in the photo the model is also wearing the pants but for me that would be a bit too much cashmere for summer!
∆ FOR THE BASEL PEOPLE ∆
there is a showroom at St.Alban-Vorstadt 68 A
where you can have a look at the collection and order your desired color and size. you might wonder how this work? so let me explain you the business model: Sabine Parenti launches a collection twice a year: spring/summer and fall/winter. for every collection she chooses about ten different colors and all the pieces are more or less available in these colors. so for example the ribbed cashmere dress that you see in beige above can be ordered in a bright orange a dull green or many other colors.
a super basic but maybe just for swiss spring and summer is the college V neck sweater that you can see here in off-white – but I would totally wear this all year around.
so I hope I was showing you something nice and have a look at the collection here: http://www.parentis-cashmere.com there are lots of other nice pieces and different colors!
I hope you all had a nice time with friends and family. I had two nice dinners at home and had a very nice time. <3 today it is only about relaxing. I started this day with a nice long shower and am wearing my most comfy cashmere sweater. thank you @Nivea for sending this lovely box. there is something nice and new inside. more on the blog soon. merci! tomorrow I am showing you an nice black and grey outfit. I might post a sneak peek on instagram 🙂
something that I have been seeing a lot lately: skirts with lace. and I wanted to see how I can wear this look in many different ways. here is one of the looks. I have found the skirt here and I think it runs rather big. I ordered size 36 and I feel its a tiny bit big around my waist but I didnt want to send it back and felt like wearing it right away.

that’s essential to my winter wardrobe! I live in freezing Switzerland and I can really wear my cashmere cardigans, coats and sweaters!
I think we should all have one or two cashmere basics like a nice navy v-neck sweater or a beige roundneck cardigan. I get my basics from either C&A – yes you read this correctly 🙂 I got 2 super awesome roundneck cardigans – a navy one and a beige one – or I get them from the PARENTIS showroom in Basel (seasonal sale 2x a year – s/s and a/w)
so certain days when it is raining cats and dogs or just a foggy day I like to endulge myself in my cosy soft cashmere sweaters, coats, scarves and cardigans – they make me feel as if I had not left my bed 🙂
here you can see some ideas of how I wear my Cashmere Basics – either very casual or a bit more edgy elegant. thats the best thing about fashion – there are so many options and so many different ways to wear the same thing! I love to play with different materials, colors and patterns and often I love to stay in the same colors and wear different shades of the same color.
for a simple casual everyday look ballerinas come in very handy as I prefere to wear flat shoes during the day. one of my favorite ballerina brand is PRETTY BALLERINAS
I would wear these ballerinas with skinny jeans, white t-shirt and a black blazer or a black leathe jacket – or I would wear them with a simple black dress – or I would wear them with a nice pair of slacks and a simple cashmere sweater. let me give you some inspiration:
what do you think? would this be something for you?
and how I am ready for fall! I found this yellow cashmere cardigan by MANOUSH at GASSMANN in ZH and I absolutely adore it – its so soft! its a very short cut and it has almost ¾ sleeves – perfect to pair with the highwaist skirt that I also found at GASSMANN in ZH and also by the same brand MANOUSH. I really like outfits with a unicolored top and a colored bottom – no matter if with skirts or pants – its just a perfect balance. both of the pieces are from the fall/winter collection 2014 and with pieces like these I feel ready for fall!
