can you see it too? I had a funny moment with my camera and it made a fancy rainbow – yay! but actually I dont wanna talk about rainbows today I rather wanna show you my lovel spring outfit!
I have recently shopped at zalando.ch and I have found some lovely things: read my shopping haul post here << so I am wearing the floral pants – the grey leather pumps – the cute pearl earrings and the lovely beige bag with the pink wallet inside!
aaww the sun is out and one can start wearing midi skirts without tights and socks – yay! I was waiting for this the last 6 months! I love to mix different clothes that I have been wearing during winter and make a more spring-ish outfit out of it. this neoprene skirt is from the H&M winter collection and it has a perfect length for todays weather! my newest bargain are these lovely heart ballerinas that I have showed you before in my zalando shopping haul – unfortunately I can not link you to the shoes as they are currently sold out!

this is my tiny hope that spring will arrive early this year 🙂 and therefore I have put together this pastel – floral outfit. I have showed you my zalando spring haul a couple of days ago and today I am finally wearing my new grey pumps by tamaris. they are extremly comfy – the first time that I wear tamaris shoes and I am quiet impressed! due to the platform the actual heel is not so tall and one can really feel that when walking and standing for longer periods.
after almost seven years of having the same wallet I finally found one that can get me over my beloved MIU MIU leather wallet. my old one was kind of big and I felt like switching to a smaller version – in fact I did and today I took some time to finally arrange my new wallet. that is such a cleansing thing to do: getting rid off all the unnecessary receipts and shopping cards that I have not used in years. 🙂
the wallet was part of my SPRING shopping haul via zalando.ch and here you can see all the new pretty things that have found their way into my closet 🙂 next week I will hopefully find time to show you some outfits wearing these new things and in general to get ready for spring! are you a pastel lover? I AM!
today I started my day with a journey back in time – I went thru 2014 and was thinking about the mile stones of that very year. so many nice things happened and many sad things too. as you guys know me I am more likely to share nice things.
so let’s go back in time – to the #zalandosummerhouse and dream about my pretty green silk TIBI dress a heck of a dress! Once you wear it you know that you are ready – ready for the day or night.
when putting together a wardrobe it is very important to have versatile clothes – the same clothes for day and night to dress up and down. THIS for sure is one of those dresses. wear it during the day with flat sandals and with colorful heels for a night out! visit tibi.com and I am sure that you will find something nice! HAPPY SUNDAY time for some online shopping!
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.

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.

I hope you have had a good half of the week so far. I will test some cool things for the blog and I promise to upload many nice things to my blog.
we all have one as we all do it – we all check ourselves in the mirror – whether to check the makeup or our outfit. over the last couple of years I have been paying attention to the different mirror faces of my friends or girls that I saw applying makeup in public transport or inside shops – I really enjoyed this research! at the zalando summerhouse there were many beautiful mirrors and my blogger friend Michèle from the fashionfraction blog took some funny photos of me checking my hat and makeup in the mirror. my mirror face is a bit like a duck/selfie face 🙂 and I think the first photo shows it very well. btw, this is also the gorgeous summer hat I was making at the zalandosummerhouse DYI workshop – isnt it gorgeous? in that picture I am wearing the GANNI blouse that I absolutely fell in love with – a simple floral keypiece to wear all year around – yes, here in Switzerland for sure!
what is your mirror face? have you ever noticed others checking themselves in the mirror? leave a comment below or comment on my FB page – I am very curious to hear what you think about your mirror face.
This year 22 international fashion bloggers were invited to the Zalando Summer House (#zalandosummerhouse). From the 28th until the 30th of August 2014, they stayed at the wonderful castle- Schloss Herzfelde in the Uckermark an hour north of Berlin. Inspired by ‘La Dolce Vita’ of the 1950s the house was decorated with candy coloured furniture, contained a café with an Italian barista, a big garden with retro games and DIY stations that gave the bloggers time to relax, be creative and enjoy the good life.
at the #zalandosummerhouse Tim Labenda was presenting his collection and was reading a chapter of the never ending story by Michael Ende. this particular chapter inspired him to choose the colors of his winter collection. words like the nightforest, fantastica or the desert can really be seen in his materials and patterns – a very clear color palette! Tim Labenda likes to mix different materials – in his winter collection this is shown too, there he uses heavy and light fabrics, knit, neopren, leather and wool. my favorite piece of his collection is the blue knited turtleneck sweater – shop it here http://www.zalando.de/tim-labenda-for-zalando

again I will tell you a bit about the zalandosummerhouse. we arrived thursday night and were arriving with this old beautiful omnibus. the next day started with yoga in the garden. there were different workshops to attend like the mint&berry streetstyle workshop, the make your own flower bouquet and the make your own summerhat workshop. unfortunately that very day the weather was not as good as it was the day before but we made the best out of it. Michèle from fashionfraction Blog took some funny photos where I am running in the rain. they will be soon on the blog.
the castle herzfelde and its surrounding is such a beautiful place. endless lawns of green, greenhouses, fields, trees that were shaped in cubes. I was thinking a lot about Alice in Wonderland. the park around the castle had several places that reminded me of the story. here you can read more about my time at the #zalandosummerhouse – enjoy! xx
the zalando summerhouse was a blast, I can not say it often enough: it really was a blast. I met lovely bloggerfriends and was able to relax the entire weekend in a lovely castle called HERZFELDE in the beautiful nowhere of Brandenburg, Germany. #lorealparisde was in charge of hair and makeup and I chose the brow focused look and a simple hairstyle. Actually there were 3 hairstyles to choose from but seriously I didnt like any of them and I guess my hair must have been a lot longer for the planned hair do’s. big hair was the theme and lots of backcombing teasing and lots of hairspray, all of these things are not really my cup of tea 🙂 anyway, I was happy that I was able to straighten my hair and wear the lovely brow focused makeup. I will soon show you pictures of my complete look, stay tuned!
I looooove silver things and when I saw this BCBG skirt at TJmax in the states I had to have it 🙂 and ever since I have worn it many times in different ways. the great thing about shiny things in general is that they work very well with black and white.
