Dress Over Pants

Skirt Over Pants

JCrew Printed Silk Pants, Helmut Lang Jersey Dress, Rag&Bone Brogues, Lanvin Embellished Satin Box Clutch, Saint Laurent Gold Vermeil Rings, Illesteva Sunglasses, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, Chanel Soleil Tan, Chanel Rouge Coco

One of the trends from the last shows is the "Skirt over Pants" or "Dress over Pants" Thing. It's not for everyone, but I love it! I used to do it years ago and I'm happy about the comeback now.

An other trend is the flats, hello flats :-) Happy about that one too! I'm a fan of brogues since many years and these ones from Rag&Bone are fantastic! They actually combine two trends.... white shoes and brogues/flats.

The Clutch from Lanvin is a little dream! Wow! Out of my reach at the moment, but hmmmm a dream!

What about you? Are you going to try the "Skirt over Pants" thing?

Some of my best friends are Aussies and I used to live down under for about two years. We lived in Perth and I must say, I miss it almost every day! Western Australia is such a super beautiful place! And the relaxed vibe of Perth and especially Fremantle is still buzzing in my heart! As a town Melbourne and Sydney are actually more interesting, but all our best friends live in Perth, so Perth was the best place for us!

So... therefore I thought it might be good to share one of my favorite Aussie brands, bassike.

Go have a look at their website here.

I love their jeans and t shirts and lately they have some pretty awesome leather pants and the fur clutches are fantastic too!

I love these shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo for Fall 2013!

They remind me little of the ones from Victoria Beckham Spring 2013:

 What do you think? Do you like them?

Dries Van Noten Fall 2013 Details


The ones who follow me already know, that I'm a huge fan of Dries Van Noten. Also the latest collection is one of those I keep going back to, simply to admire the beauty of the creations! Can't get enough of these details!

I'm also very curious about the new perfume Dries Van Noten did in collaboration with Frédéric Malle, will try that for sure! Read about it here. So far it's not available in stores here in Switzerland, also the new scent of Marni is not in stores yet... can't wait to try those. I kind of have the feeling, that those two scents are made for me.....

Happy Monday! Enjoy the little things and focus on the good stuff, my motto for today!

Prints and Colors

Print Mixing

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Pants, Chinti and Parker Striped Organic Cotton Top, Alexander Wang White Python Heels, Charlotte Olympia Clutch, Sheriff&Cherry Sunglasses, Marc by Marc Jacobs Set of two Bangles, Swash iphone Case, Essie Incognito Nailpolish

Sometimes when I don't plan an outfit (which actually happens most of the times....), when I put together things in a hurry, I end up with the most fun looks. If I think too much, I often end up changing myself several times and finding nothing right. To be honest, often I take just what is on top of my pile on the chair next to my wardrobe and mix it with something new.

So when I'm in a hurry, I either wear all black or white or both, or a denim on denim look or if I'm lucky, I end up with a fun and new unexpected look like above.

During summer it actually gets much easier to get dressed in a hurry, put on a dress and your done. Really can't wait for Summer!!!

What about you? Do you plan your outfits or are you as chaotic as I am?

Have a grate week end everyone!

Mode Suisse Edition 3 Zürich

Mode Suisse -


Tomorrow the 9th of March there will be the third edition of Mode Suisse in Zürich.

Mode Suisse is a platform for young Swiss fashion designers, where they not only have the possibility to show their seasonal collections but also to actually sell them.

This idea is no news for many other countries of course, but in Switzerland this concept is quite new and I think it is fantastic because young designers didn't really get much support for many years!

The Show Room Sales are public and they are happening 9th of March from 15.00 until 23.30 at Schiffbau, Schiffbaustrasse 6 in Zürich. The Fashion Shows are by invitation only and take place in the evening, details here.

The following designers are showing their work:

Spring !

Spring !

Mary Katrantzou Skirt, Top Shop Cropped Top, Missoni Scarf, Sophie Hulme Envelope Shoulder Bag, Illesteva Sunglasses, Converse, Wilfredo Rosado Ring,

"Spring is in the air" and I couldn't be happier! Colors, prints, some statement jewelery, a scarf tied around a bun or around your head if you have short hair, some color on your lips and cheeks and there you go! I love this time a year, when you smell the change of seasons and the days get longer :-)

I started a new routine in the morning to enhance my energy, as I find myself being quite tired lately: I put a teaspoon of turmeric and a teaspoon of honey into one liter of warm, almost hot water and drink it during the first few hours. It's an Ayurvedic formula and is good for many things, the list is very long, if your interested, you can read about it here.

And I started to practice Yoga again! I stopped doing it regularly after giving birth to my second daughter, but now I really feel, I need this routine again! I was so lucky to actually find a Yoga place I like a lot. They are doing Vinyasa Yoga and it is a really though one and a half hours! Very relaxing and though, exactly what I need!

What are you doing to celebrate the new beginnings of spring?

Color Pulp

Byredo Pulp

Miu Miu Stretch Cotton Pants, Jil Sander Cotton-Poplin Shirt, Printed Satin Twill Blouse Marni, Marni Sandals, Sophie Hulme Leather Tote, Lulu Frost Set of Four Bamboo Bangles, Illesteva Sunglasses, Byredo Pulp, Tom Ford Lipstick

I'd love to push myself a little....... style-wise I mean. I think I found my style a while ago, but sometimes and most often in spring, I start thinking of getting a little out of my comfort zone.

There are two things I wanna try more this spring: the layering (like above, a white shirt and over it a blouse and I will for sure do the "skirt over pants thing" we saw at the shows lately) and I would love to try out some new jewelery.

I usually wear just very classic jewelery, but for spring I wanna try out some bold and colorful things like those bangles and I'm still thinking of some of the necklaces that Marni did for H&M.... some of them are still available on ebay...... 

Do you also think about pushing your style a little? And what are the things you wanna try? I'd love to hear and get inspired by your ideas!

Have a grate weekend everyone!

Rider Bag Loeffler Randall

Rider Bag Loeffler Randall

Rider Bag Loeffler Randall, Miu Miu Cashmere and silk-blend Cardigan, J Crew Cotton T Shirt,
J Brand Jeans, Acne Pistol Boots, Illesteva Sunglasses, Rag & Bone Hat, Tom Ford Coral Lipstick, and my all time favorite Speedmaster

I just ordered the studded Rider Bag from Loeffler Randall, Yay! Can't wait to get it!

I'm truly a little "bag addict"! Ah... and now I just remembered, that I still need to show you my other two bags that I ordered lately. I promised that a while ago and I will do that next week. For the ones that don't follow me, it was a Silvana bag from Fendi and the Newton Camera Bag from Derek Lam that was on sale. I might do a little post about my three new beauties.

Crazy hey? Don't you think that this happens regularly.... I'm not ordering bags like this on a daily basis, ha.... I wish! I had some extra bonus coming my way lately and I invested in in some new bags and they need to last a long while! But I really couldn't be happier with my choices and I'm very sure that I will love them for ever!

What bags do you love? Or are you more the "shoe addict" type?
