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.

happy new year – I hope you all had a good time and I wish all of you an awesome new year with lots of fun surprises! for me the most important thing is health – no money can buy – and that’s why it’s so precious to me. we have to live with the given and should try to make the best out of it.
I am not a big fan of new years resolutions but one thing I will focus on are the small things in life that make a difference. I SAW SOMETHING NICE will be showing nice things about fashion art design beauty and lifestyle with special care for the MEN page. I am looking forward to shooting lots of nice things just like the blogs name implements. stay tuned. xx
yes, be real and feel unique! wear your hat with style and honor! combine and mix different styles and create something new! In our case it is: a felt hat, lots of jewelry and a burgundy matte dark lip!

I got the shampoo, conditioner, a mask and a volume spray! thank you very much for sending these goodies. at C&A I have found these fancy hairclips and as I am now growing out my bangs a bit the tiny hairclips come in very handy. If I like the new oxygen line by DOVE I will I will sure get back to you about it 🙂 but let me try it first!

my ZALANDO parcel has arrived on saturday morning and it brought me this awesome burgundy TOPSHOP hat. hats are my favorite piece of accessories at this very moment and I can not wait to wear this hat more often. today I paired the hat with my new pastel wooljacket that I have found at the fleamarket last saturday. I washed it with the woolprogram of my machine and it turned out fresh and clean. mmhhmm, I love the smell of fresh laundry.

it is now the time to wear longsleeve dresses with bare legs. last sunday was such a beautiful day and I was chilling in the sun at the KABAR in basel. as you can see I stole Cristians watch 🙂 I think it looks awesome on me, I am really thinking about buying an Advolat watch for myself.
good morning – soon we have made it to the weekend! I have just made myself some CHAI TEA with the delicious MONIN sirup. mmmmmhhmmm!
today I will show you a lovely outfit that I have been wearing the other day. and I am preparing many other nice things to show you. stay tuned. xx
I am not really a person who wears black a lot so when I wear black I always feel very elegant and chic. my friend linda brought me this beautiful black silk acne dress with leather fringe and the only thing that seemed right was to wear it.
