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! ย xo

the Allrounder at Day and Night

0 Permalink

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t get over how fast time passes – it’s incredible! Today I want to share another style combination for you. I love combining my day outfit, so that it can easily be transformed to a nights out event. It’s incredibly important for me to look chic during the day for business and then be able to easily pull-up the outfit for when I’m out; without having the time to majorly change. So I love taking a pair of shoes and a shirt with me to work if I know I’ll be out in the evening again. Of course, this outfit is not something I would wear with clients – it’s not thaaat professional, but it’s a good, easy and chic “casual” outfit for winter. What’s really important to me is to always have a few items that I like to call the Allrounders – those that I can wear both at day and night with easy combinations.

With the winter coming now – ok, it’s freezing autumn already – I love wearing a pair of comfortable black leather pants. They are subtle enough to wear at day and glam enough for night’s out at a bar or club. Obviously, the major accessories such as a brilliant watch and some earrings are a no-brainer. And mascara! I cannot live without my mascara from Chanel. I love getting ready in general, but often times I don’t have enough time to sit hours (just kidding!) in front of the mirror or I just cannot be bothered, and enjoy a day without makeup on. But I cannot live without my mascara – not even for that walk to the supermarket across the street.

This watch is actually a men’s watch – but hey: who says you can’t wear men’s fashion? I say you can! Actually, I already own two men’s watches, as I’m oftentimes into those larger, heavier watches. I love the contrast of a big watch to a females’ wrist. There’s just something about it – or is that only me, haha? In general, I believe one piece of jewelry can be make such a difference to the whole outfit. Take this watch, for example. On one hand it can be combined so easily with so many different styles. On the other hand, it already has such a presence that a) not many other accessories are needed and b) it almost is a reason to style the outfit a certain way. I also have some fine jewelry pieces, were I often have the feeling I want to style the outfit a little more femine – or in contrast: totally grunge!

I love how the below Allrounders can be easily worn during the day with a comfortable sweater (love that one – just bought it yesterday!) and a nice pair of biker boots and hat. Comes the sunset, come the heels. The great thing about leather pants is you can literally wear them with any kind of shoe – be it sneakers, heels, flats or boots: it seriously always works! And that H&M x Alexander Wang shirt (yes, in my collection already!): how cool is that? Now I only need those heels, clutch and watch. I can’t seem to get over these items!

Which is your favorite item – or combination?

I’ll have a Latte, please!

Good morning everyone! Once again, the week has passed so, so incredibly fast! I’ve barely had a chance to relax, nor write anything on here. After last nights business dinner I sat down and got inspired by a few items on Polyvore before I went to bed. I love creating and finding inspiration for new outfit ideas – and exactly knowing where everything comes from.

Last night I decided for a winter-y outfit. Cosy, yet chic. I’m in love with the idea of owning an outfit like the below, even though, for once, it’s not all black! So I might really look into this, haha. When I plan outfits, I usually have a location in mind. This time, I actually thought of a Parisian Cafรฉ, sitting outside wrapped in a fur, drinking a Latte. Random? Maybe so!

Now off to continuing work. I’ve got a 5h event in front of me today and another business dinner afterwards. Lucky me: I barely have to cook this week!

An Addiction to Shoes

1 Permalink

Diamonds are surely not a girls best friend, and shoes are not everything in life. But they surely can make me jump up and down from joy – oh, how I love buying new shoes. Oophs, I did it again (ha! Does that remind you of any song? Damnit, now it’s stuck in my head haha!). Honestly, I sometimes think I have this slight addiction to shoes. If feels like every cent that I save up someday suddenly is gone and a new pair of shoes or a new clothing item has replaced it, haha.

It’s also (once again, I know) no surprise that I love, but seriously absolutely, love black. I can’t even describe the emotions bonded to this color. It just fits: everyday, to every occasion, in every season, at any time of the day. So there is also no surprise that I chose black shoes! I actually ordered these lovely new pairs just a few days ago and was super surprised (and jumping of joy), when they already arrived yesterday at the office! Do any of you know that feeling when you just don’t expect a packet? I thought DHL was at the door, just handing me some documents. And then: BAM. It was my Nelly packet that arrived.

I love investing in clothes, especially in shoes, leather goods, handbags and coats. But then I saw these, saw that they were (super!) cheap compared to what I normally see that I actually fall in love with and was just mind-blown. And I did hesitate for a bit, I do admit it. But in the end I decided to go for it, just try it. In the end, if I don’t like them anymore next season or if they break or whatnot, I atleast won’t regret spending a fortune on them. Oh, and another major positive point: I got three pairs for the money I would normally spend easily on one pair. It’s a win-win-only situation!

What do you think? Invest or just go for the cheaper one from time to time? By the way: I am always on the outlook for new stores or websites to get some inspiration. Be it shoes, clothes in general or whatnot. Please let me know if you see something great!

Now I quickly need to pack together my bag and off I go to the office. It’s majorly pouring today (ugh!), but atleast that is a good excuse to wear my new shoes (#1)!
