BW&G Basics

Black, white and grey – there’s seriously no easier combination when it comes to clothes. I love polyore for making these collages – and for finding some amazing deals online.

With fall having arrived, it’s time to unpack those thicker cardigans, those ponchos, hats and scarfs. Alright, the hat might not yet be needed – but honestly, how cool is it? And there is probably no easier way to hide a messy-hair-day. This hat is my next buy for sure.

This grey cardigan/light jacket is amazing and under $50. For it not even being on sale, it really is an amazing catch.

I’m really in need for some new biker boots, as my old Zara ones just don’t do it anymore and honestly, I’ve fallen in love with this pair from Moschino. What’s your opinion on it?

This tshirt is an absolute eyecatcher and gives all others an easy way to approaching you – there’s no cooler way of starting a conversation over a unicorn. Seriously.

These frends headphones are already in my collection and a go-to item when on the road. I couldn’t live without music and especially for those long fall walks I love having some music ring in my ears. Only need to be careful to not sing out loud with my favorite songs. :)

Leatherpants are a must-have in every closet, every year. You can wear them all the time, to almost all occasions (seriously, I’ve worn them in business before). They are warmer then jeans so it’s really my first grab in the morning when temperatures drop. These ones are a perfect fit.

I’m still looking for the perfect black scarf, and this one really caught my eyes. Surely a cheaper version though, as I’m still not convinced on the price for such an accessorie. Any opinions?

As much as I am complaining about the cold, I cannot wait to wear some of my thicker autumn and winter clothes – there’s just so much to combine! I’m throwing out quite a bit again to make more space for new shopping purchases. Cant wait for the next shopping runs!

I’ll surely keep you up to date on my purchases. Till then, I wish you a great continuing week. xo

Happy FriYAY! Yep, the week has gone by already – once again! It’s been a really busy week so far – actually, I have the feeling it’s still the beginning. My weekend isn’t much different scheduling wise: I will be diving tomorrow and Sunday, need to get up early on both days, have to write some texts on tonight, Saturday and Sunday, have guests coming on Monday (so need to clean!) and will be going out a club this Saturday with one of my girls here in Zurich. As much as I’m looking forward to each and every part of the weekend (except for cleaning..), I doubt I’ll be getting any sleep – I surely won’t get to sleep in. I haven’t slept in for weeks now and I swear, it kills me. I love sleep – so being deprived from one of my favourite activities might make me a little moody from time to time.

Hopefully everything will go well with my last dive on Sunday – going into the lake tomorrow and Sunday (brrr…)! Upon completion of the course I can finally call myself a PADI Open Water Diver – looking forward to it! With that, of course, I am super excited for my holiday coming up now in March. Obviously, I have been searching the Internet for adequate outfits already – believe it or not, I am short on everything that has to do with hot temperatures. It only shows how little I have been at the beach in the past two years – so depressing!

Here are some of my current favourites from River Island, which I have been love-eyeing with. What do you think? With hot temperatures I always think of a nice tan, bikinis in floral prints and pastel colours (so fresh!), a large summer hat, some footwear and of course: sunglasses! I decided on buying one or two “cheaper” kinds, as I do not want my other sunnies to get ruined by the salt water and sand. I am now off to lunch with a friend and then I’ll be back at the desk – oh so fun!  xo

Alexander Wang x H&M Press Event

0 Permalink

Happy Wednesday everyone – I surely hope you all had a great day! I just came back from the H&M x Alexander Wang Press Pre-Shopping Event in Zurich. It. Was. Insane! Honestly – it was a mass that went into the shop and everyone was basically killing to get a piece – so much for VIP entrance the day before haha. But unlike others, I won’t have to stand in line tomorrow to have a 10 minute shopping experience (yes, they time you and you get a wrist band – insane!). I tried to take photos, but I’ll be dead honest with you guys: I was scared my camera would get smashed in the crowd haha. So I put it away and looked at the crowd trying to get as many pieces as possible.

Obviously I didn’t just stand and wait around. Smart little me was able to get the pieces I wanted straight from one of the ladies working there – but I must admit, I guess I was just lucky. So I got the top that I really wanted! I was thinking whether to get the white or black one, but the decision was easily taken because the white one was basically gone first. I quickly tried the black on when I got home and I must say I’m super, super happy with my choice: I am in love. Obviously, haha – it is probably not a big surprise that I am liking the black pieces more, once again. I will try and take a few pictures of me wearing the outfit in the upcoming days – so stay tuned!

I also got myself the leggings, which people were literally killing for. Then everyone wanted to go into the changing rooms. That is when my patience completely ended. I took both pieces, bought them and went home. I couldn’t have survived an hour standing in line. I’m not sure if I will keep the leggings though, so I might take them back in the next few days during business hours (hopefully when most people won’t have time to shop). Sadly, I just don’t look like that model in the campaign wearing it haha. Instead I might get another top. Shall see! For now, I am super, duper happy about my black top!

In general, I have to say: The collection is absolutely stunning, simply amazing. It is so “simple”, very sporty and yet chic. I love how the collection is made for actually working out and simultaneously you can go out clubbing with the piecees. Basically, you can do one after another! Though I do advice going out before getting all sweaty haha. I could have spent so much money tonight, it’s insane. I also love the coat with the embedded cap/hat, though I couldn’t fully decide and I think it might be a little too sporty for my taste. In the end, I enjoy timeless pieces (if spending those amounts) that I can wear a little longer. Nonetheless: I was breathtaken by the pieces. Which one is your favorite?
