Happy monday everybody!
I couldn’t help but notice that I’ve been wearing lots and lots of black and dark colors lately. I have always been a big fan of black since I think there is nothing that makes a woman look that elegant. You can’t make anything wrong with a black pair of jeans or a lovely coat.
That’s exactly the thing here: You can’t make anything wrong. I’m really a little fraidy-cat when it comes to colors. I totally love bold colors, a bride yellow or a fiery red. But since I’m a ginger girl I have always been careful with colors as we just can’t wear a lot (at least that is what they preach us).
Of course a lot of models have shown us how incredible a ginger girl looks wearing colors. Think of Lily Cole or actresses like Julianne Moore.
However, I have to admit that the current pastel trend really plays into my hands as I can reject my beloved black but don’t have to move that far out of my comfort zone.
Here I am wearing a dress I bought in Milan a few years ago. I fist thought it looked like a hanging bag but when I put a belt over it it fell really nicely. What do you think?

The lingerie trend has been one of my absolute favorite trends the last season. I think it’s absolutely fabulous that you can wear those tops and dresses also on the street now and not only hidden in the bedroom.
I love the femininity of the top I’m wearing in these pics. The fabric feels so soft against my skin almost as if made for bed. The transparency gives it a special touch and makes it absolutely sexy.
I’m wearing the top with my favorite black and red blazer and pants from Zara. The zipper along the leg and the embroidery on the thighs make them even more appealing to me.

If I had one wish for free it would probably be a pair of perfect fitting leather pants. Until I can afford them these coated pants from H&M will have to do it. And I think they’re doing a pretty damn good job.
I love the biker look of them given by the application on the sides and the rock touch they have thanks to them being coated. What do you think?
And finally, after such a long grayish week the sun came out again as you can see on these pics. It’s literally heartwarming!
Have a great week!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend?!
Usually I’m waiting with a new outfit for you on monday. Not so this time. The weather was way too shitty to shoot an outfit. I just don’t think it makes any sense to post such low quality pics.
Anyway, the weather today was way better and I already took some nice photos, so I’m waiting for you with a new outfit tomorrow!
Wish you an awesome day and see you tomorrow!
I am so happy! I just found the most amazing coat at Promod! I’m so in love with it it’s crazy. The coat’s structured tailoring is so beautiful and the color mix of the trend color dark blue and a soft beige and its asymmetrical zipper really make it special.
I feel like I’ve been looking for ages for a nice coat and when I least expected it I finally found it!
However, I’m still looking for the perfect pair of black boots. I want it with a heel but not so high that I can’t walk in them. Because let’s face it: I can’t walk in 10 cm heels. It’s just killing me! Yet I have the impression that all I’m finding is 10 cm and up… Do you have any suggestions?
coat and top: Promod, pants: Zara
Some things just have such sentimental meaning to it. The bag I’m wearing was my grandma’s. She died a few years ago and ever since then this bag (among a lot of other things) remind me of her. When I wear it I can see her wearing it. It has the old leathery smell to it which sets me back in time. It’s really great to have some little reminder in daily life.
To my outfit: I simply love everything that’s oversized. Like this blouse. I found it in H&M and was immediately in love. It’s oversized, it’s plaid, it’s perfect. I matched it with an old jeans which I altered a bit and a lot of jewelry. And of course I won’t leave the house without a beanie!

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend?! I definitely have.
Do you know these weekends when you know you should do something, like writing an essay, studying or whatsoever but you just don’t know where to start and you have to postpone it? Well that is how I felt this weekend. I simply couldn’t start typing something on this scary blank page.
Instead I thought I’d give it a rest, I just can’t force creativity to flow. So I thought I’d try my creativity somewhere else and went shopping, ate some sushi and drank my new favorite chari tea.
Of course I also took the opportunity to walk my new fabulous knee high boots and cozy scarf from Asos. All in all it was a very casual outfit which just matched my weekend.

Baroque patterns have been a major trend this season. The clothing brought us back to Louis XIV, the Sun King. Baroque stands for luxury, opulence and decadence. Clothing becomes luxurious and shall decorate the people. Characteristic for this trend are slim silhouettes, pompous gold and lace.
I found this beautiful River Island dress and had to immediately think of this trend. The golden ornamentation, the slim fit and the love for detail made me crave it. After a while I just couldn’t resist and bought it.
However, I didn’t want it to look to proper, so I combined it with some bold boots and my Zara biker jacket.
dress: River Island, jacket: Zara, boots: Pull and bear
It’s been a while since I last posted an outfit, my apologies for that! But with christmas, new years eve, visiting family and university everything was far from relaxing. However, I had the most amazing time with my family and I must admit I’m still feeling a little christmas blues. Feels like I haven’t arrived in 2014 just yet.
Anyway, to my outfit. You know how I love red and black combinations. Here is just another one. I also have a preference for flowy dresses, so when I spotted this one in Cotton On I just couldn’t resist. It’s kind of a girly dress and I always like to toughen it up a little by adding my most time favorite leather jacket from Zara or bold boots or something like that. As you can see here I opted for my leather jacket and my new fabulous Asos boots which were a lucky find on sales!

Well, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas?! I certainly had! For the first time after a couple of years I celebrated Christmas Eve with my family in my hometown and I had such a blast! It felt so good to be home again after such a long time and I couldn’t be happier!
As you can see in these pictures I even felt a little relegated into my childhood. I just couldn’t resist trying out the old equipment on my childhood playground and I thought this would be the perfect location to shoot my outfit. I am totally in love with this plaid scarf and obsessed with this color! And I think that I don’t have to mention how much I love my Isabel Marant top?! However, since the lace is very elegant and a little transparent it’s hard to wear it in daytime, that’s why I dressed it down by wearing a light jeans.
Now we come closer to 2014 day by day and I can’t believe 2013 is over just yet! I am so curious to see what 2014 brings since there will be a lot of changes and hopefully chances for me!
