these are my lovely new COS spring dresses and they are perfect for the current weather situation in Basel, Switzerland. I got a navy one with a small collar and a beige one with V neck and they can be worn with skinny jeans or bare legs, with heels or sandals.

are you all ready for summer? I am so ready and at the moment making plans for our summer vacation somewhere in the south. I miss the beach and I know that after a week of beach and fun I can go back to work a lot more relaxed. I am def a beach person and I love swimming in the sea/ocean. if I had more time I would fancy I trip to California but for a week and a half thats just way too short for such a far trip. where do you go for your summer vacation? please let me know in the comments below – curious to see where you are all going.
as you can see in the photo above the dress is made out of two materials: silk and a very light kind of merino wool. I had so much fun wearing this beige dress on our short weekend trip to beautiful Cassis where C took all of these lovely photos.
beige and navy are two very elegant colors, especially in these two materials: silk and wool. when I spotted them inside COS Strasbourg I was so excited and knew that I am going to wear them a lot. the thing with beige dresses is that you need well fitted nude underwear and for my taste I always love to add a bit of color to the outfit, like my green vintage FENDI bag.
wearing a subtle mix of yellow and brown! I love to play with colors and materials and I was surprised that I have not worn this combo before. I have found all these items a very long time ago and all of them were on SALE!
the shirt I have found at Benetton in Basel and it is by SISLEY – the skirt is from FIZZEN and the awesome brown pointy pumps are from the NAVYBOOT Outlet at STÜCKI. the brown H&M leather bag found its way for 5 CHF into my wardrobe from the fleamarket 🙂 so yeah, not all of them were on SALE but all of them were a bargain.
I hope you all had a nice weekend and that you can start freshly into the new week – I got loads of things planned for the upcoming week – fashion shootings – cashmere SALE and an event in ZH. stay tuned. X

beanie ACE records
this is what I found at the DIESEL sample SALE in Zurich last week! an amazingly cosy scarf, a very nice teddy and a shiny silver clutch!
there were so many people present and there were so many clothes, shoes, handbags and more that it was really hard to focus and make wise decisions 🙂 but nevertheless I still found these gorgeous pieces! the scarf will keep me warm during the cold winter days here in Switzerland and the clutch is a perfect keypiece to jazzup a casual outfit and make it more chic and outstanding and the teddy, aww this delicate piece will always find a way into my daily wardrobe as the first layer always matters the most! 🙂
tiny trip to MULHOUSE france
I felt like eating a french croissant and strolling thru a tiny village. from basel it takes you about 20 minutes to an half an hour depending which connection of the SNCF. its such a sunny day today and I was wearing my Birkenstock knockoffs for the first time – these sandals are perfect for a little trip as they are very very comfy and flat.

this is perfect for the days where you dont feel like wearing a color, its not a very dark grey so it still looks very classy.

#15 mandarinas manarine a rather orangy red
#84 cherry cherry lady a very nice burgundy color
#04 heavens nude a very light whitish nude color

which is your favorite color?
I love love love them and can not get enough of them 🙂 so do you have a leather skirt? How do you wear it? Are you afraid it will look cheap?
I chose a very simple way to wear leather skirts – a knitted black turtleneck top with black boots and a black bag. I think these are 3 basic pieces and I am sure its easy to find a black turtleneck and also black boots and bags. like this the leather skirt gets all the attention but still looks classy and not cheap! I guess thats one of the big fears that we have when we hear leather skirt! You can really wear it like that everyday and it wont look cheap!
give it a try!
I am showing you 5 different leather skirts
patchwork / pencilcut / textured / volants / neon
HATS HATS HATS <3
I can not get enough of it!
so far I have been wearing my burgundy “H&M” hat and my beige/red “JUICY COUTURE” hat in september and oktober and in that sense I am really looking forward to fall/winter season 🙂
your outfit will look more complete you dont have to worry about your hair and you wont need an umbrella – these are only few advantages of wearing a hat and I guess there are a gazillion reasons more to wear your fedora, bowler, homburg, tryolean, cowboy or porkpie!
ladies wear your hats with style! xx
