thank you NAVYBOOT for spoiling me with those literally LOVELY shoes and I was already wearing them the whole weekend – I mean are there any better Valentines shoes out there? as I already wrote on FB and you probaly realized that I didnt have any special Valentines Day thing on my blog is due to the fact that I dont believe in such thing – every day should be a Valentines Day <3
so back to the <3 heart sneakers <3 – I have a humming melody of the cheesy song “I put on my shoes and I am ready for the weekend” in my head and thats how I feel with these. they look fancy and special and the best thing is that they are extremly comfortable. let me tell you that I actually wanted to first wear them with jeans but this morning I was not in a jeans mood and therefore the shoes had to fit my black and white skirt outfit – and I think they did very well.

I got the sneakers for Valentines Day and I really like them and thats why I show them here. lots of love! <3
one of my favorite books regarding fashion and style is the one above in the photo. and it shows many nice key pieces for the perfect style. this very morning I was browsing thru this book and it made me think about these pieces: my beloved VALENTINO sandals – the lovely rose lipstick by ESTÉE LAUDER – the sweet scent LOVESTORY by CHLOÉ and golden hoops.
now I wanna answer some fashion questions: #1 what are key pieces?
these are clothes that can be worn in many different ways and always remain timeless. a good navy or black blazer – a nice white blouse – a skinny jeans – black or brown chelsea boots – a beige trench coat – white sneakers – black flats etc.
#2 are there any no-go in fashion?
hmm, thats a tough question as for me almost everything goes and hardly anything is impossible. personally I dont like to mix black and brown and navy and black – but thats just me 🙂 but on the other hand I love to mix and match with colors and patterns. back in the days it was also not so cool to mix red and pink but thats also something that works perfectly for me. another thing I wanna share is that when I am wearing a short skirt I am always wearing a rather simple top with it and when I wear a nice cleavage shirt I try not to wear it with shorts but with a nice pants instead.
#3 whats my go-to look for a business day?
atm this would be a pencil skirt with a cashmere sweater, ankle boots and an oversized coat. in case you need inspiration check my outfits from 201120122013 and 2014 or check my polyvore page.

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.

a rather casual and comfy outfit that I am showing you today. but I am very happy with my newest purchase of jeans. in fact they are my new favorite jeans. I found out that the perfect length for me is to buy short sizes. luckily C&A runs short (and long) sizes and the 36 short fits me perfectly. another favorite of mine is the NINO BOLLAG jacket – a great piece to slack over almost every outfit. I guess thats why it is a favorite. when I think about my favorite clothing items I see that many of them can be worn in various ways with lots of different other things. what is your favorite piece? let me know. xx

that is something rather unusual for me. I hardly ever wear a complete black outfit. and it is funny that even when I try to wear a complete black outfit I still find one or two things that are not black – today it is my light grey tights.

something that I have been seeing a lot lately: skirts with lace. and I wanted to see how I can wear this look in many different ways. here is one of the looks. I have found the skirt here and I think it runs rather big. I ordered size 36 and I feel its a tiny bit big around my waist but I didnt want to send it back and felt like wearing it right away.
..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:

hello stan, you are now on my feet and I hope you like it! ha, I wanted a pair of white sneakers forever and finally I bought myself some at the pomp it up store in Basel. the Adidas Stan Smith sneakers are available in green and blue and as I hardly wear green I aimed for the blue ones. ever since I got these I was wearing them with style. stay tuned to see my sneaker outfits. xx
my impressions from the event in Basel at the SBB train station. I was not lucky at all but it was fun to watch other people win! you had one try to grab a bronze ball = free shoes or black ball = 30 CHF or 50 CHF voucher in 15 seconds or like I did to grab nothing but air.
I can highly recommend to check the ORIGINALS collection as the shoes look really solid and are made out of solid leather but they weigh almost nothing. that was my biggest surprise when I held one of the Chelsea boots and I couldnt believe that they were so light. that was also the time when I got the brown and not the bronze Chelsea boots for myself. I can not wait to show you my boots and the way I wear them with jeans and dresses! stay tuned for more!
here are some ideas on how to wear the brown chelsea boots
I can finally show you my new H&M piece. a blue neopren sweatshirt top with a beautiful embellishment. aww. I can not wait to show you more ways to wear this fancy piece! I think I can make it work with a blue highwaist skinny jeans, with a oxblood leatherskirt .. stay tuned for more!
