MY BASICS vs MY STAPLE PIECES
NEW NAIL POLISHES
1 GLAM ROCK purple passion
2 prêt – à – porter SILK GREY SILK
3 MINA’S MARSALA
these are the new colors by ALESSANDRO INTERNATIONAL and I am sure that there is something for everyone. GLAM ROCK is one of the collection, there I really like the color: PURPLE PASSION, its a shimmery purple and perfect for the fall/winter season. these nail polishes will be available from mid of november 2015. there will be 6 different colors, and also for STRIPLAC lovers there will be something by GLAM ROCK, 4 shades (purple passion, turquoise rocks, rock star and violet nights). TURQUOISE ROCKS is a super elegant shimmery greenwith a silky finish, I love it and its perfect for the holiday season. prêt – à – porter is the name of the fall/winter 2015 look and there are 6 different shades, my two favorite ones are called: SATIN SENSATION and SILK GREY SILK, also in this collection they made similar colors for the STRIPLAC lovers, me included, there are 4 shades (grey silk, prêt – à – porter, satin sensation and silk champagne). I LOOOVE the prêt – à – porter shade for STRIPLAC, I am wearing it since 3 days and as always it still looks super nice and shiny. and now lets talk about the IT COLOR by PANTONE 2015, its called MARSALA and the new shade is MINA’S MARSALA, a nice warm copper and also in that very case there is the same color for STRIPLAC available. the name MARSALA comes from the italian liquor wine.
in case you have not tried STRIPLAC yet but you are curious about it, well, there is a TRY ME KIT, have a look here >> I am a huge fan of STRIPLAC and can only recommend it to you. X
SALEDUCK x ASOS
DISCOUNT at ASOS with help of SALEDUCK.CH – thats what I did.
have you ever heard of SALEDUCK? its a very nice platform where you can get discount codes for your online shopping pleasures. I found a 20% off voucher and ordered something nice for Cristian. an awesome pair of cropped pants and a very nice flannel shirt.
GET THE PIECES
today over lunch I shot the first outfit of Cristian wearing the grey flannel shirt with simple blue jeans and grey TOMS shoes. he went directly to work with this outfit, which means, he feels comfortable and the outfit is office proof. lets see if we can shoot the second outfit tomorrow over lunch, but by tomorrow you should be already able to see the first look. stay tuned.

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
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!
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.
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!
top and pants TARA JARMON
clutch and sunglasses C&A
pants TARA JARMON
top TARA JARMON
jeans CURRENT ELLIOT
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?
what would I wear for a dinner or even a business meeting?
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.
here you can vote for my outfit <3
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.
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.
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:
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 : )
# 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.
for quiet some time I was looking for a white oversized sweater and finally I found one when I was strolling thru the H&M in Weil am Rhein. the cut is really oversized as I am wearing the size XS and I feel it is quiet big already. so today I wanna show you two different versions of the white shirt: a casual one – the one you can see above and below and an elegant one that will follow.

I really had an amazing sunday today – I slept until eleven and then had a nice breakfast followed by some blog work and delicious frozen joghurt – mmmhhhmmm. then I took these photos and in the end I found time to sit at the rhein in the sun. now I wanna show you the same shirt in a more elegant way – have a look:
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.

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
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.
turtle neck PARENTI’S
sandals DOWN TO EARTH
sunglasses RAY BAN
I found something nice – some super comfy black wool pants! as I sit a lot in front of the computer it is very important for me to wear comfortable things. so when I saw these pants I knew I had to have them. todays look is a mix bewtween elegant and casual. the heels could be easily replaced with a nice pair of flats.
pumps L’AUTRE CHOSE

wearing this awesome new piece called FABIA by lola FRED. do you know that brand? if not then lets chane that, right? lola is for women and FRED is for men – they make wonderful YOGA wear that can also be worn on a daily base. and guess what – I love it. for me its perfect when clothes look nice BUT also feel comfy. I work several hours in front of my desk and there is nothing worse than too small pants. so when I discovered this lovely brand from Zurich I had to share it among you guys. I am sure you will find something nice!
