Temperatures have been mild today but it was overcast and I needed some bright colours (again). I am pleased with myself for doing quite well on my personal colour challenge 🙂

Today I payed my parents a visit after work. Due to the non-availibility of my usual photographer AKA my daughter Alena (too busy with school and not too long now she will have her final exams) my father was kind enough to quickly take a few photos.

I am wearing a ZARA blazer from last year worn by Alena here, here and here. We share clothes and accessories and isn’t it interesting to see the different stylings?

Have a wonderful rest of the week, wherever you are.

P.S. I feel truly honoured to be featured on Fabulous after 40 – Fashion Advice To Help You Tweak Your Chic© by style experts Deborah and JoJamie today. Please visit their fabulous blog!


Heute war es zwar mild, aber bewölkt und die Sonne ließ sich kaum blicken. Somit war Farbe besonders wichtig! Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit mir, dass ich meinen Vorsatz tatsächlich umsetze, insgesamt mehr Farben zu tragen und nicht nur Schwarz.

Nach dem Büro habe ich bei meinen Eltern vorbeigeschaut und da meine Tochter, die normalerweise meine Fotografin ist, keine Zeit hatte (sie macht bald Abitur und hat zur Zeit noch etliche Klausuren), hat mein Vater schnell ein paar Fotos von meinem heutigen Outfit geschossen.

Der gelbe ZARA Blazer ist eines der Kleidungsstücke, das meine Tochter und ich uns teilen. Ihre Stylings seht Ihr hier, hier und hier.

Ist schon Mittwoch Abend… das Wochenende rückt näher 😉

    Thank you for swinging by my blog and I'm so glad I found yours in return. Absolutely love your style – so classic and chic, and your yellow blazer is the perfect touch for spring! I'll definitely be following along.

    Also – I was born in Germany! (In Bitburg). I've only been back to Frankfurt as an adult, but am so wanting to travel the country.

    This cinched in waist really shows off your figure. I love the color, texture and details of your jacket. You can't go wrong with yellow and stripes!

    The black and white stripes are a foretaste of spring.
    Look great with that jacket and the color yellow so alive gives joy to your look

    The jacket is unusual, those zippers and yellow make it interesting. Your Dad did a great job taking the pictures. Beautiful!

    Oh wow, you look stunning, very chic. I have been hunting for that jacket, but without success, just found something similar at River Island, hoping to catch it in my size! The Cirturs colour is beautiful and very flattering on your skin tone, and by the way, you look rather comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera!

    I take great inspiration from your styling!

    Love this combo! One of my regrets is not picking this blazer up last year at Zara, I always see people wearing it and get so jealous because it always looks so chic 🙂

    I love that you share clothes and I can see why with this blazer. I just love it. I love bright yellow but find I can only do a touch with my hair color. A shame.
    Love the way your beautiful daughter styled the jacket as well!

    Liebe Annette. Ich habe mich mal ein wenig bei die umgesehen. Was ich lese/sehe gefĂŁllt mir.

    Ich schĂ€tze mal, wir sind so eine Altersgruppe, Ü 40. 😉
    Leider gibt es fĂŒr uns erwachsenen Frauen zu wenige Blogs. Um so schöner, dass ich deinen gefunden habe.
    Ich habe auch ein Blog fĂŒr unsere Generation. Vielleicht magst du mal vorbeischauen.
    Ich habe mich mal auf deine Follower Liste gesetzt. Ich denken wir könnten uns gegenseitig inspirieren.

      Liebe Cla, vielen Dank und wie schön, dass es noch mehr 40+ blogs in Deutschland gibt! Bislang sind wir kaum vertreten, obwohl das Interesse auf jeden Fall vorhanden ist.
      Ich komme heute nochmal „rĂŒber“ zu Dir, wenn ich meinen aktuellen post (Jeans +orange) hochgeladen habe.
      LG, Annette (ĂŒ40 oder 40+ ist immer schmeichelhafter, tatsĂ€chlich wurde ich im Oktober 50)

    I remember trying out that jacket in ZARA store a while back but one thing off about ZARA and me is that the arms are usually too narrow for me ( I have muscular arms) in my size, so no go. You look fabulous, it is a beautiful pair with great color.

    Super schönes Outfit, liebe Annette! Ich trage prinzipiell sehr gerne Farben, im FrĂŒhling und Sommer noch ein bisschen lieber. Auch an Dir mag ich krĂ€ftige Farben sehr gerne – das Gelb bringt Dich richtig zum Strahlen! Hoffen wir auf viele weitere Sonnenstrahlen in den nĂ€chsten Tagen, damit wir endlich unsere FrĂŒhlingsgarderobe ausfĂŒhren dĂŒrfen 🙂 … LG aus Wien, Katja

    gosh you have great skin! I love this outfit combo, yellow is one of my favorite colors and I always want to pair it with stripes (my favorite print) but I always assumed that I would look like a bumble bee, however, you have proved me totally wrong! I love this look : ) So chic and bright. Its been nice finding your internet space!

    Beautiful and very well styled. That necklace is a surprise to me and a pleasant one. I would instantly copy that…. if I had a yellow jacket. Had a look at your daughter's blog as well. Indeed differently styled and also very nice. Must be a joy to have a daughter who shares your hobby.

    • 10. MĂ€rz 2013 / 7:21

      Thank you, liebe Greetje. Yes, it is wonderful to share this passion with Alena. We are very close.
