    ITALIAN INSPIRATION

    Since the weather currently really lets us down in Germany, Mr C and I escaped to Lake Garda, Italy for a long weekend. Dolce far niente – enjoying a glass of red wine, excellent food, sightseeing to Verona, Garda and Bardolino and a little bit of shopping. Temperatures were still chilly but we had lovely sunshine and really made the most of our stay. If you ever have a chance to visit the area (luckily only a 4 hrs drive…

    GOING GREEN

    I have mentioned it before… I am so fed up by winter and so ready for spring, warm temperatures, sunshine and blossoming flowers and trees! At least I am wearing some green already. Emerald green is the Pantone colour of the year (see my previous post here) and I especially love the combination with black which gives it a more formal look and white which adds a bit of a summer party touch. Today I decided to pair it with…

Those wedges are so comfortable (I also bought them in green last year) and the lady at the supermarket till in my small town always gives me that strange look that says „How dare you wearing orange shoes with…

    YELLOW & STRIPES

    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…

    BLACK & WHITE

    My wardrobe is full of black clothes. Even I am trying hard to add more colours to my outfits I will never give up black… However, black loves white which happens to be one of this year’s spring and summer trends. Today I am wearing my graphic print jacket which is also perfect for the office as the fabric is thin and it feels more like a blouse. Combined with my new silky trousers from MANGO (sales!) and ZARA peep…
