    SUMMER IN BRIGHT NEON & OTHER STORIES

    Glowing heat in Germany these days and I love it! Isn’t this bright neon just the right colour? My daughter surprised me with this wrap dress which she got from & other Stories in London. Recently they opened their first store in Berlin and online shopping is available in various European countries. Belonging to H&M their concept is a minimalistic line which often reminds me of COS yet more colourful and fresh. The colour speaks for itself and therefore I was very…

    GARDEN PARTY IN TURQUOISE

    What do you wear to an afternoon garden party? The dress code was „Hawaiian Casual“. On my plan I had a maxi dress, being casual, stylish and very appropriate for an outdoor event in summer – but unfortunately the ordered dress didn’t fit at all…  not even my fabulous seamstress was able to help out this time.  Glad I found this turquoise boho style tunic in the back of my closet! I added a whole lot of arm candy in…

Unfortunately it is a bit above my budget but if there is anyone out there thinking about a Birthday- oder Christmas gift… just kidding 😉 My purple shift dress is only a bit lighter but my vintage bag which I bought in Italy many years ago is probably…

    SUMMER DRESS FOR THE ITALIAN RECEPTION

    One of the benefits of working in an international environment are social events like the Italian National Day. We get to know the different traditions, typical specialities and drinks, culture and people. Italy is certainly known for elegant fashion and style, therefore I wore my new silky Sfera shiftdress and a light blazer as the event took place both inside and in the garden. Paired with peep toes and silver jewellery I felt dressed appropriately for this invitation. Lovely Italian antipasti, pasta, icecream and…

    SUMMER LOOK IN ORANGE & SILVER

    My closet is full of dresses but I only own a couple of skirts, so I thought it was time for a new one. When I discovered the matching cute shortsleeved cardigan I got the perfect ensemble. The originally short length of the skirt made me hesitate for a second but then I immediately thought of my seamstress who did her magic and rearranged the thin layers in order to gain more length. Tip: Look for a good seamstress to…
