    LEATHER DRESSED UP

    It can’t always be a dress… this time I was in the mood for something different. I combined my new olive faux leather trousers with a light blouse, clutch and peep toes in nude tones.  Leather trousers can be worn in different ways from rock style to casual – I was going for another option: dressed up but not too formal. The soft inner lining of these trousers is soft and quite warm, so expect to see them again but then styled for…

    FLORAL PRINTS IN BLACK & WHITE

    We have lovely late summer weather in Bavaria this week – right in time for the Oktoberfest – but we already feel autumn with low temperatures in single celsius digits in the morning and at night. They can’t stop me from wearing dresses without tights yet. It’s in our family genes and also my mum and my daughter go by our personal rule: No tights as long as possible! I am changing to dresses with longer sleeves though and this dress is recurring…

    IT’S OKTOBERFEST TIME

    Today I am wearing something very different, a dress that doesn’t follow any trends or seasons.

Traditionally a garment worn every day, it nowadays became an outfit for special occasions such as cultural festivities, religious holidays, weddings on the countryside and of course the Oktoberfest. There are different styles from region to region and also more formal silk dresses and casual…

    SEQUIN TOP IN BLACK AND GOLD

    Naturally I love shopping… but I also treasure some pieces in my wardrobe which I bought years ago like this sequin wrap top. Paired with black silky trousers and golden accessories it is quite a dressed-up look and together with a black blazer I feel comfortable for a dinner invitation or going out. The fabric is a light chiffon but because of the darker colours I tend to wear it more often in the autumn/winter season. Speaking of colours: After discovering some…

    LACE AND LEATHER

    I bought this dress earlier in summer but then wasn’t quite sure how and when I could wear it. The lining and 3/4 sleeves aren’t suitable for very warm summer temperatures. On the other hand it doesn’t feel quite right for the cold season either.  Usually we have nice and sunny weather in September and October, albeit nights are pretty chilly.  Paired with leather accessories and my floral bag I felt comfortable for this period of transition. My belt from…
