ONE DRESS - MANY WAYS TO WALK IT

ONE DRESS – MANY WAYS TO WALK IT

one dress - many ways to walk it

I am so in love with this new dress that I have found in one of my favorite shops in Basel: Le Mouton a 5 Pates. A super simple grey SILVIAN HEACH dress to wear in many different ways. Today I wanna show you that you can wear the same dress and only change the shoes. A very simple way to make your dresses more versatile.
one dress – many ways to walk it #1
lets start with the comfiest and easiest way to walk: Sneakers. A pair of black sneakers should be key to every wardrobe. A very easy way to dress down a nice dress.

Metallic shoes were quiet a big trend. And I found my silver shoes in C&A on SALE for 19 CHF. An amazing bargain. Not only great to dress up your look in a comfy way but also perfect to jazz up a simple jeans and sweatshirt look.

And now a very easy way to upgrade your dress by wearing black heels. In my opinion every lady should have a pair of black heels. No matter if the heel height is only 2 cm.

Simple black flats, also something that we all should own. Nothing works better to make a chic outfit look more casual. I found these babes at ALDO in Marseille.

Boots are a great way to wear a dress in winter. I found these wedge boots at the Zalando Lounge Sale. They are very comfy to walk in due to the wedge heel. Black boots are perfect becasue they are working with so many different colors and looks. I am not so sure anymore whether I like these kind of boots with jeans. It somehow reminds me of the late 90s, early 2000, when this boot over skinny jean was a big success. Maybe with a pair of over the knee boots, who knows.

I wanna thank Miguel for taking the photos of me, it was quiet an adventure. We found this little platform on the water (Rhein) that was perfect to take the photos. I was able to get there with almost all the shoes, except for the wedge boots that you can see in the photo above.
Here is a photo that shows how hard it was to get to that tiny platform. I was prepared to fall in the super cold water but luckily didn’t. 🙂 Have a lovely day. X

BYE BYE SUMMER

bye bye summer

september has come and it is somehow the the time to say good bye to summer and welcome fall. lets hope for a beautiful sunny fall with little rain and grey days. todays outfit reminds me very much of my grandma as I am wearing her coat, she passed away this January and I learned so many things in regards to crafting and sewing from her. <3

bye bye summer

I love playing with different shades of beige and blue and wanted to share with you my new cut off jeans. these are very very old jeans, I think these were the first edition of the squin jeans by H&M : ) one could almost call them vintage. so my problem is that often the jeans are too long for my legs and I end up tucking them in. so instead of tucking in I decided to cut off. zack!

bye bye summer

outfit 

coat GRANDMA’s
blouse ROSS
jeans H&M
sunglasses FENDI
earrings CLAIRES
bag H&M
shoes COSMOPARIS

bye bye summer

this is a perfect sunday outfit – very comfy and casual. I am absolutely a jeans person and will always grab a pair for a casual look. another thing that I think works very nicely is mixing beige and blue, and wearing different shades of the two colors. now in fall it is the season to wear your sandals and peeptoes for the last time with jeans instead of dresses before it will be too cold… awww, I dont wanna think about winter. it is my least favorite season, I dont like being in the house all the time and the only good thing about winter is the layering. hahahaha, yes, I love layering looks, it keeps me warm and I get to wear more of my favorite pieces at once.
bye bye summer

Happy Sunday – lots of love. X

MIX WHAT YOU HAVE

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!

WOW

top and pants TARA JARMON
clutch and sunglasses C&A

pants TARA JARMON

CASUAL

silver top casual

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?
MY FV LOOK

what would I wear for a dinner or even a business meeting?
silver pants chic

what would I wear every day?
silver top casual

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.

SUMMER INSPIRATION

whilst strolling thru the web I found this awesome baby blue top by STREET ONE and I just had to share it with you. it is the perfect key piece for a great summer look and I found two very nice ways to wear it. the first one is a casual everyday look for a rather swiss summer day and the other one is a chic everyday look for a hot day. the best thing is that you can mix this top with so many things you already have in your wardrobe.  baby blue top

so as you can see for this casual look you need black pumps and blue skinny jeans – thats it. of course you can add accessories like jewelry or a nice handbag but the basic look can be achieved by combining these three items.

baby blue top

here I am showing a very easy and summery look and I know that a lot of you are not so keen on wearing white but in fact it is such a perfect color for a hot summer day! I love the combo of white beige and babyblue. also in this case the outfit can be accessorized with jewelry or a nice handbag.

in case you like the top it is on SALE (-40%) and also available in other colors:
http://www.street-one.ch/All-Styles/T-Shirts-Tops/Tops/Spitzentops/Blusentop-mit-Spitze-Nadja-skyblue.html

this weekend I was in KARLSRUHE (read more here >>) and I was wearing the top with black 7/8 pants and black BIRKENSTOCK shoes, unfortunately I could not take a proper photo but I think you can see what you need to see in the one below : )

my outfit

TIPS:

# since this top has very thin straps I recommend to wear a strapless bra – it just looks a lot nicer when there are only the straps of the shirt.

# do you like the layering look? if so then choose a bigger size and layer it with other singlets or another similar top.

# in or out ? you can wear this top inside a high waist skirt meaning to tuck it in in the front or back. BUT it can also be worn outside, meaning over a skinny jeans.

there are many other ways to wear this top and of course I will keep you posted about that. just stay up to date with my blog.

same shirt different style. thats done very easily with such a bling bling sequin skirt like this one. I am so glad I waited for it to be on SALE and cost half as much as it would have before. : ) and I guess that thought and the sunny weather made me dance a bit.

HAPPY SUNDAY

another simple outfit that I was wearing last week. I am super happy with my new wool coat that I found on SALE at h&m for 30 CHF instead of 79.90 CHF. what a bargain!

I had a productive and relaxing sunday afternoon – I slept in and then shot an outfit for a next weeks blog post – then I cleaned the apartment, cooked a delicious curry and went for a nice bike ride with my love and finally found time to upload this outfit post besides that I am editing today’s photos and watching my favorite YouTube beauty gurus

today’s outfit

a rather casual look wearing a shirt and turtle neck with thick socks and sandals. casual doesn’t mean boring it just means less elegant more convenient. I love to mix different materials and colors and I love to wear sandals with thick socks! I found these socks at #manorbasel but they are made by #esprit and there are so many ways to wear them and it is a blessing to always have warm feet.
