OOTD/ floral neon print blouse & black denim

After some busy weeks, I finally found some time to make a little bike tour with friends. (But this was already 3 weeks ago.) We enjoyed the beautiful weather and nature along the Rhine. Even after almost 8 years here, I still find little nice spots and gorgeous views along the river. 

And since I haven't taken outfit pics for quite a while, I thought this might be a good chance, even when my outfit was nothing spectacular. I should have decided for a different pants, because the black jeans was a little warm, but anyway...I love them...very stretchy :-). The blouse is new from H&M. Perfect for such a nice day and I really like the neon print. The flats are old, but very comfy.

I wish it would be still so nice weather, but I guess, I should prepare for autumn now, right?!

Have a great Sunday all!


I pack my suitcase and take with me: bikinis

It's already getting colder these days, especially in the mornings. Hopefully summer isn't over yet, because I finally found and ordered three (actually four, but one is already dismissed) bikinis and thrown my old ones away. 

Now, I don't know which one/ ones to take?! The agony of choice! 

What do you think? Here they are: 

Asos - apple print
Flower print and high waist:

I'm really not sure - is this leo too much for a bikini?! Actually, it doesn't look that bad, but...ahhh - What do you think? Which one is your favorite?

Have a great evening!

Saving for/ Red suit from Hugo

Not spending money for over six months was like a little therapy for me. Really! Before, I spent so much money on pieces I didn't really cared about and after being forced to save a little more, I really recognized that I don't need all those pieces to find something in my closet. There are already man pieces in there. Sounds a little weird, I know, but it was really a little eye-opening for me not having any money to spend.

So, I started making a wish list for pieces, I'd really like to buy and need to save some money for.

Here's my first wish for which I have to save a little longer. It's a red suit from HUGO. I saw it in Grazia magazine and totally felt in love.

Doesn't it look really cool and powerful? I love the red hue and the straight cut. You can perfectly wear the pants with just a simple white shirt or the blazer with denim and it would be a great outfit still. For me, the perfect two pieces to safe some money for.

The blazer is 379,00 € and the pants 179,95€.

Have a wonderful day!



In love with/ Claire Danes & the Burberry Prorsum trench

I'm sure you have already seen the current Vogue cover for August, right? I'm always a little late, because the monthly issue is always a little late here in Germany. But lucky me, I had a look on my iPad Vogue this morning and saw the new issue and this beautiful cover. 

Claire Danes looks amazing! As an old fan of Claire Danes (I loved her in My so called life) I'm really happy to see her again. Of course, she wasn't really gone, but honestly...I wasn't a big fan of her last movies. But she is back with Homeland which is one of my favorite series, at all. 

Besides Claire who looks gorgeous on the cover, I suddenly recognized this stunning trench coat she is wearing. Total wanna have piece!

Of course, there's no trench coat on the Vogue cover I could afford :-). It's Burberry Prorsum!!! No need to mention the price, right?! But still, it looks so amazing!

Have a great day.

Summer hues from Essie

Currently, my favorite summer hues are from Essie, as always :-). The latest collection is amazing. I would buy all colors.

But I decided for Sunday Funday and Marshmellow (which is a random color). I think these colors look so brilliant when you have a nice tan.

What are you favorite summer nail colors?

Have a great and sunny week!


New in/ Platform sandals from Topshop

It was really quiet here, right?! I'm sorry, but since I started my new job I'm really busy and moreover, it's finally summer here and to be honest, I'd love to just enjoy the sun in the evenings and took a little summer break :-). But now, I'm preparing some new posts...

...starting with my new platform sandals from Topshop. I recognized that I don't have sandals anymore. Guess, that's because I don't wear "open" shoes to the office and since I spend the most there, I didn't really need sandals. But the great weather here and sale everywhere led me to Topshop and I found these platform sandals that weren't even on sale :-). 

Actually, I'm not the biggest fan of platforms, as you may know, but aren't these cute? They don't look so clumsy on the feet, I think and I have to admit...really comfy, of course. Sadly, it's nothing for the office, but I will wear them a lot during summer.

Have a great Sunday!



Not just boring business dresses...

Most of my time I fritter away for searching a suitable outfit in the morning. It makes no sense for me to already pick one out the evening before, because I know I wouldn't like to wear it the next day. I just need to decide right on time and see how I feel.

Moreover, I hate ironing! That’s why I don’t like wearing blouses every day to work. But I can’t wear a simple shirt when I have meetings during the day. So, I need an alternative.

Dresses are always easy to pick and easy to wear. They can be easily dressed down or up and you can wear them during the whole year. Perfect for a "lazy morning person" like me :-).

So, I decided to pick out some new dresses for me instead of a suit again. Above all, because it's sale everywhere currently :-). And I found really really nice dresses for the office and they are not just black and grey and not boring at all. 

Dresses with sleeves:

all pics via the online stores

  1. Zara 69,95 €
  2. Stine Goya 127,40 € (sale)
  3. French Connection 48 GBP (sale)

Which one is your favorite? Any other suggestions from your side?

Have a great evening.



PRESHOPP – The fashion search engine

For some weeks it was a well kept secret within bloggers and I’m sure some of you may have heard or even tested it already – PRESHOPP has launched.

Preshopp is a new fashion search engine that brings bloggers and readers together.

Sometimes online shopping can be a little exhausting, at least for me. If I look for something special, I always scour the same online shops and in the end, I never have an overview and don’t know what to buy and finally, I always end up with the same labels. If you know what I mean!?

Now, you can search @Preshopp when you look for something special and you’ll receive all uploaded blog posts according to your search as results. So, you’ll find more interesting and new shops and/ or great blogs, you maybe never would have found without Preshopp.

So, for bloggers this is a great chance to spread their posts to a wider audience and readers have a bigger choice of content, no matter what they’re looking for. Sounds great, right?!

I was one of the lucky bloggers and readers to test Preshopp before and I have to say that I really like the idea behind it – Give and Take!

So, visit the homepage http://private.preshopp.com/ and give it try! Let me know what you think and if you like it?!

Have a wonderful day.

New in/ Berlin Bag from Liebeskind

I can’t describe how madly I felt in love with this amazing, gorgeous and just perfect bag from Liebeskind Berlin. It was love at first sight. The only bittersweet decision I had to take was – burgundy or dark green?!

Isn’t it beautiful?! I know the price is nothing to sneeze at, but…it’s so wonderful! And now I can carry a little bit Berlin with me every dayJ.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Isabel Marant for H&M – do we like?

It’s out now! I guess, we all have asked ourselves who will be next to design for H&M. Yesterday, the press release made it official. It’s Isabel Marant!

She will design Must-have pieces for women and teenagers with the “Parisian touch” and for the first time she is going to design a men’s collection. The whole collection will be available on November 14th 2013 online and in 250 stores worldwide.

Isabel Marant & Margareta van den Bosch, source H&M

I already read the news yesterday and still I’m not sure what to think? Do I like it or not?

Well, Isabel Marant is one of the greatest designers, imo! No question! But I have always been little disappointed about previous collections from designers like Anna dello Russo, Marni, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld, Versace who designed for H&M. Not because I didn't like the pieces, but the quality wasn't really good. Yeah, I know…otherwise it wouldn't fit to the price. Nothing new and surprising, right?!  

On the one hand, I think it’s nice that designer pieces/ fashion in general are available for all and the other hand I think, do I really wanna have a piece of less quality only because Isabel Marant is on the label for H&M? Wouldn't it be better to safe a little more money and spend it for a “real” Isabel Marant piece and wear it year after year, because it has a way better quality?

I’m always torn when it comes to this topic. Actually, I think it is better to spend less money on trend pieces and spend a little more on classic Must-haves. But even when you buy only a few cheaper pieces, you support all the “non-sustainability-drama” of the industry. Of course, I don’t want to, but without all these cute trend pieces it’s only half the fun.

So, what are we doing? I haven’t found the right solution for me and by writing this, I feel bad about it, because it should be only one solution, or?!

Office outfit alternative - Bermuda shorts and culottes

Working in an office without air condition during summer can be really heated. So I'm always looking for appropriate alternatives to long suit pants. Well, you can wear skirts (not minis), but I guess that's it!

A few years ago I've worn bermuda shorts, but it seemed like they disappeared from the closets. Now they are back and not only as the short version of the suit pant with a crease. They come in all colors and prints and what I like even more, the wider cut - the CULOTTE!

I found some really great pieces of classic bermuda shorts and culottes which are definitely not only for an office outfit.

Favorite classic and printed bermuda shorts:

printed long shorts via Asos
long shorts with flower print via Asos
classic bermuda shorts via J.Crew

Favorite culottes:

denim skater culottes via Farfetch
culottes via Zara

tailored culottes via Topshop

culottes from Chloé via Net-a-porter
culottes via Asos

culottes from Wood Wood via Asos

I still need to decide which one to buy. What's your favorite?

Have a sunny day all.
