I found cute little croissants at MIGROS and thats what I had for breakfast. mmhhmmm! unfortunately I have to go to the hospital for a MRI check-up and hopefully everything will go as smooth as possible!#fingerscrossed

I have been wearing some pieces over and over again in differnt outfits and when I was strolling thru my archive I realized which pieces were shown most often on my blog and I felt like summing it up with a favorite pieces blogpost.
this pink skirt that I have found at the fleamarket is one of my favorite skirts and I just absolutely love wearing shades of pink! the skirt looks like someone has sewed it for themselves and there is also no label or tag. so special!
black fake leather skirts in different versions with zipper or without over the knee or mini – I just love wearing fake leather skirts.
the GANNI floral blouse is a real eyecather and also a very comfortable piece to wear. I paired it with shorts and skirts and I totally love to play with different patterns!
the fluffy rosa sweater is also one of my favorite pieces and as I have already told you I love wearing shades of pink. here you can see two of my favorite pieces combined: the fake leather skirt and the fluffy rosa sweater.
and again you can see my awesome pink skirt – it works with flats or heels with different shades of pink or any other colors a real key piece!
the embellished neopren piece is also a very favorite piece of my wardrobe and I love to wear it with either grey or yellow. and thats where my slim straight grey pencil skirt comes in handy – and I saw it is still available at H&M!
a combo of my floral GANNI blouse and the awesome special pink skirt! I am so in love with these two pieces and I can not wait to show you more ways of wearing them. and guess what the grey platform heels that I am wearing in this picture are on SALE right now 55 CH instead of 80 CHF! here <<
and last but not least I am showing you the navy emebellished neopren piece with my super old vintage yellow skirt. aww, so many other favorite pieces that I have not mentioned today <3 wearing different things makes me such a happy person and sharing it with you makes it even better! X
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!
spring in sight! today I wanna show you a nice mix of my beloved roy lichtenstein pattern coat, a simple black dress and 2 bright accessories: my red shoes and my red hat! I mean it doesnt have to be a comic pattern coat – it could be any kind of pattern or mix of bright colors that can be combined with black and one of the colors from the coat. in my case it was red black and the pattern from the coat!
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!
big chunky boots – I love it and I am totally aware that this is not everyones cup of tea. I found these on SALE last year and I can not remember where I have found them and there is no label in or outside the shoes. a combination that always works for me is black and red – they go very nicely together and complement eachother.
another thing is wearing too many accessories and this is actually hardly ever gonna happen to me as I barely wear too much jewelry or any jewelry at all. so in fact this is something to work on – wearing a bit more accessories 🙂 but when I am wearing such chunky red boots I feel that it would be too much for an every day outfit.

Lubex anti – age hydration oil – developed by leading swiss dermatologists and tested and produced in therwil, switzerland in fact just a couple of kilometers away from my home. so why am I showing you this? first of all because it is something for sensitive skin – something I am dealing with and secondly because I wanted to test this product.
the anti-age hydration oil consists mainly of three oils: KAHAI oil (tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles) – BRAZIL NUT oil (nourishes, hydrates, and smoothes the skin) and BLACK ORCHID extract (contains flavonoids, antioxidant protection against free radicals, soothes and regenerates the skin effectively).
I started to use this product eleven days ago. how to apply you ask? well, its super easy, the product has a lovely dropping glass and I use about 3 drops for my face, neck and décolleté. so lets get started, I wash my face and keep my skin damp then I warm the drops in my palms and apply the warm oil with very light pressure. it depends on how dry your skin is as this product can be worn alone or under your daily/nightly skin care. I used the oil only at night and for me the oil was enough and I didnt had the urge to apply any other cream. I can directly compare the oil with my beloved Kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate that I love so so much and I gotta tell you that I am also very very happy with the Lubex anti-age hydration oil. they both smell very nice and bring me into a SPA mood, seriously, I can really relax by smelling certain things. anyway, the Lubex anti-age hydration oil has a very subtle floral scent and the oil is being absorbed very fast by the skin. thats why it can also be used for day and night, as it wont leave a greasy mess on our faces – yay! my skin loves oils as not only my face but my whole body deals with sensitive dry skin. I will continue to use it all up and will tell you more in my future empties but be prepared that this might take a while as I expect this product to last – three drops for the face, neck and décolleté! you can find more information here »
