these are the new ASOS cropped pants and I love how one can wear them more casual or more elegant, depending on the shoes and shirt or sweater. I already blogged about them in a previous post – read more here >> I checked SALEDUCK.CH for discount and indeed found a voucher there. so I can highly recommend to check their site before ordering something online as they have lots of different companies they work with.

yay – I can finally show you yesterdays result of the photo shooting. I love the shirt and I was told that it is very comfortable to wear. so for the people who have not read my previous post – read more here >> http://www.isawsomethingnice.ch/saleduck-x-asos << I ordered this grey flannel shirt and a pair of blue cropped pants at the ASOS onlineshop and got a discount using a SALEDUCK.ch code. this is a very simple everyday look and the shirt is perfect for this inbetween season weather. in case you re hot just roll up the sleeves, but for sure you will not use a jacket during the days.. at least not here in basel at the moment. I am sure that this was a great choice as it can be worn with almost every color. the flannel gives the grey a very nice mixed structure so that it can even be worn with different shades of grey. I could also see this shirt in a more elegant way with black pants and leather shoes. lets see if C wants to take more photos for the blog and if so I will of course share them with you. but for sure you will get to see the outfit with the blue cropped pants.

C&A shopping haul:
3. DENIM SHIRT
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
finally I can show you my new coat that can be worn as a dress too, as the temperatures dropped a bit and I was feeling a lot more in the mood to shoot these photos. : ) I got this beautiful trench coat from MINT & BERRY and it is now on SALE for 55 instead of 75 CHF.
I paired the coat with some really comfy heels that I bought several years ago and have so far never let me down. for sure I will try to wear this coat as a dress in fall or winter or incase I have a nice outdoor event. NOTE the color is described as nude but in fact it is more apricot or rose. I dont mind that because I think it makes it a lot more special compared to all the other nude or beige trench coats.

here you can see me wearing the coat as a trench coat with my bright aztec print dress and flat shoes, this makes the whole outfit a lot more casual but still chic. I am ready for fall but not a rainy grey fall nooo, a rather sunny one. do you have your fall winter collection together? soon I will show you my personal fall/ winter favorites. I am waiting for the parcels to arrive… stay tuned.
a trenchcoat is a good key piece for your wardrobe. it can be worn with dresses or pants, casual or chic there are many ways to wear it. this is a perfect in between season coat, especially here in Basel, Switzerland.

and it is my new SONY phone aka camera. I have played with the camera for the last couple of days and I still can not decide whether I like this one or the SAMSUNG alpha better. I think it is very hard to tell the difference of the quality, it is just a different handling. the coolest thing about the camera is the timelapse, hahaha, I had so much fun testing this out, and of course I had to take a “baywatch”-like running slow motion video. 🙂 I love love love the color, it reminds me of TIFFANY & CO! for the ones among you that are interested in more info about the phone please read more here «
..with my new Originals Navyboot chelsea boots! It really got cold the last couple of days and I finally arranged my fall/winter wardrobe. here I am showing you my new lovely brown boots. I have announced some looks previously and this is it:

I am getting into a cosy fall mood with my scottish wool poncho. thank you dad & monika for bringing me this awesome piece from Scottland! tartan or plaid however you wanna call it is really BIG this season and you can see it everywhere. I love the combination of wool and plaid – like this the fall feeling shows off best and gets you into a cuddling mood. what I love about plaid is that you can mix and match it with almost everything. here I was going for a rather classy elegant look but there are so many other ways to wear plaid. I think it is time for a plaid special. I did one last year already when I fell in love with the plaid skirt by MINT&BERRY – read more here « and here «

purple – burgundy – bordeaux – oxblood – raspberry – cherry to only name a few of the lovely colors for autumn. I went thru my collection of beauty products and found quiet a lot of nice fall colors, 15 to be precise. let me list them below. for me the two most important things about wearing darker lipsticks are to have a very even nice skin and exfoliated lips!

in fall I also love to wear darker tones on my nails and I am so happy with the STRIPLAC dark violet – the OPI in the cable car pool lane – MALVA las vegas and ALESSANDRO love affaire. when I look at my beauty stuff I can see a lot of different bronzing poswers and a huge variety of lipsticks. well no surprise to me – as these are my two favorite parts to apply makeup: cheeks and lips!
and also something new! Clinique Switzerland has an onlineshop! yay! I have already mentioned this in a previous post – read more here >>
I can not wait to place my first order. for sure I will buy something for the body, maybe a nice scrub or so and I will try to find a nice chubby stick blush! but I will keep you posted about my online shopping!

LONG LAST SOFT MATTE LIPSTICK
I really like the smoke and mirror quad palette – a perfect thing to travel with as it has soft and more bold colors in different shades of grey. another favorite of mine is the long last soft matte lipstick – the color matte petal is absolutely beautiful – I could wear this color everyday! certain things that I have to use a bit more are the all about eyes eye primer – I have used it once and I liked it but I can not really tell you if I like it better than my other primers – I need a bit more time for that and I have not used the brown quickliner for eyes intense yet but actually I never had issues with pencils.
here I am wearing some of the famous fall/winter 2014/2015 colors like subtle beige and grey, warm oxbloodred and a soft beige brown!
it is the time of the year again where my wardrobe is becoming a mix of summer and fall clothes. especially here in Switzerland the fall clothes are sadly outnumbering the summer clothes! anyway it is now where I can wear midi skirts with sweaters and leatherjackets and I am a huge fan of naked legs and covered arms!

something new! Calvin Klein will launch its newest fragrance called REVEAL in September 2014, September, 15, 2014, to be precise. Solar Oriental is a new category and it combines the menly freshness with the warm curves of a lady. I absolutely love it. It is the perfect combination of sweet, fresh and floral.
top notes: salt, pink pepper, black pepper, white pepper
heart notes: orris (iris), gray amber, solar-chord
base notes: sandalwood, Cashmeran, vetiver
I have been wearing this fragrance for the last couple of days and I am surprised that I can still smell the fragrance during the day. where as usually I can not smell my fragrance after a couple of hours because my nose already got used to it. If you have the chance go and check it out in September, I am sure you will love it as it combines so many different scents! let me know what you think once you have tried it, I am always curious what other people think 🙂
