white bohemian ETRO dress | Palma de Mallorca

10. Mai 2018

ENG: At the moment I couldn’t be happier, Mallorca has a very special flair and the wedding preparations are running at full capacity. The island is perfectly suitable for wearing my new bohemian dress from ETRO, that I got from Net-A-Porter for our island stay this week. White colored boho dresses belong to my favourite clothes during the warm season, with regard to this model I’m totally obsessed with its details and the flowing material.
For this look I’ve decided to combine the dress with my beloved Fendi slipper, a leopard pattern cloth, converted into a headscarf, as well as my transparent Valentino bag as the perfect summer pocket. For me the perfect look for a warm summer day:

What do you think about this look?

wedding guest outfit inspiration

6. Mai 2018

ENGAs you all probably know by now, our wedding is just around the corner now. The excitement is growing, but I’m also slowly getting a little nervous thinking about the big day.
We are taking another trip to Mallorca for a couple of day this month to add the finishing touches and plan the last few details, which I am really excited for already. Counting our own big day as well we are taking part in four weddings over the next couple of months – the wedding season is really in full swing. Still, being a wedding guest also means dressing appropriately – and I have gotten so many messages lately regarding that topic.
This is why I wanted to show you some of my favorite looks here, that I find perfect for every wedding. Even though some brides are not big fans, I think that classy black dresses are a great fit for a wedding. If the wedding is outdoors though, or even a destination wedding like in our case, fabrics like lace, chiffon, silk or satin belong to my favourites. The dresses by Self Portrait are so stylish and timeless, which I find really important when buying elegant dresses. Additionally, brands like Temperley London, Preen Line or even H&M oftentimes have beautiful, flowy dresses in their collections.

Are you invited to many weddings this year? And do you have one specific outfit that is your go-to-pick?

outfit | spring time in Hamburg

22. April 2018

ENGDo you know what makes me incredibly happy at the moment? The weather we currently get to enjoy in Hamburg! Unfortunately my mood is completely dependant on the weather, which is why I have mood swings all the time when its grey and cold for days and days on end. Most of you probably feel the same way after a long winter, though.Since almost the entire week gave us warmth and sunshine though, I was finally able to wear summer outfits again, without the fear of catching another cold or the strange looks of other people. I would like to show you one of those looks in today’s outfit-post. The highlight of this look is my new caftan from the H&M Conscious Collection, which officially started last Thursday. The caftan is not only an absolute eye-catcher, but its comfort and the numerous ways of combining it convinced me straight away. In this case I went with a combination of shorts by One Teaspoon, a statement shirt by Saint Laurent and western boots by Isabel Marant. Take a look at the new H&M collection, there are so many stylish and popular pieces.
I hope that I can show you many more summer outfits here on the blog soon, because I have enough ideas for cool looks and trendy ‘It pieces’ in my mind already. But now I am of course interested in your opinion too:

How do you like this look and would you generally like to see more outfit-posts on the blog?

Summer looks Dubai & Abu Dhabi

15. April 2018

ENGAfter yesterday’s travel report about our stay in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, I’d like to introduce you to my summer looks of that time, because the feedback on Instagram and after the last trend report was so positive. Unfortunately some of the packages didn’t arrive in time, which is why I wasn’t able to show the latest products all the time, but that’s why I looked for fitting alternatives. It was great fun to shoot the looks, whether on the beach, in the desert or the hotels  – both Emirates have wonderful scenery and interesting views.
We enjoyed the sun so much and were able to really charge our batteries for new content, due to this we can start the following weeks full of ideas and enthusiasm.
If you click here, you can read my report from Dubai and Abu Dhabi again, in case you are also interested in some tips regarding the planning of the trip.

Which one is your favorite look? I am looking forward to your feedback.

What´s in my bag for Dubai and Abu Dhabi

1. April 2018

ENG: Happy Easter to everyone, I hope your weather during the public holidays is better than in Northern Germany. Probably many of you long for warmer days and inspiration for the upcoming spring and summer collections. Based on the fact, that we are going to take a flight to Dubai tomorrow evening, I would like to give you some insights in my suitcase for this trip. I am already looking forward to pack summer dresses, bags and sandals in my bag, unfortunately I regularly tend to have too many items with me during travels.
On warm days I love to combine white dresses and loose cloths. No matter if on the beach, in the city or restaurant, loose and stylish summer dresses belong to my favourite pieces. As you know, I am also a huge fan of bags and golden accessories, especially on holiday I like to grab a raffia bag, for me one of the biggest summer trend pieces this season. No other bag is able to transport the summer and holiday feeling better than a raffia bag. Even the classical sunglasses have more potential than protecting the eyes, the right model is most of the time an essential accessory for giving a look individuality and style. Whether small, big, angular or round, I think there are suited models for everyone.

What about you: What are your most important travel partner? Here you can find my Dubai essentials. Continue Reading…

Trend Report | spring two-pieces

25. März 2018

ENGAfter I got so many requests and questions on Instagram regarding my suit, I immediately knew what the next trend report topic had to be. This season we definitely won’t get around two-pieces, which can be worn in any kind, color and form. My special H&M two-piece got amazing feedback in Paris already, and my newest addition in pink has been praised just as much.
I think that blazers can easily be worn with shoulder pads to achieve a certain ‘coolness’ and individuality. In my case the trousers are relatively tight around the ankle, whereas its otherwise loosely fitted. To me this suit is absolutely business-like as well as it is stylish and fashionable at the same time. In my freetime I prefer to wear a lace bra underneath the blazer and combine it with either slippers or sneakers. In case of a business occasion, I would wear my blazer with pumps or high heels.
I have put together a couple of photos of my own two-piece as well as current online shop examples. These of course are only a few of the current models that are available online, but I think these are very appealing! But what about you guys: Do you have such colorful combinations in your closet too?

Have fun looking through all of these and happy Sunday!

DE: Nachdem ich auf Instagram so wahnsinnig viele An- und Rückfragen bezüglich meines Hosenanzugs bekommen habe, stand für mich das Thema des nächsten Trendreports sofort fest. Diese Saison kommen wir offensichtlich an Zweiteilern nicht vorbei, die in jeglicher Ausprägung, Farbe und Form getragen werden dürfen. Schon in Paris kam mein ausgefallener Zweiteiler von H&M Trend erstaunlicherweise sehr gut an, meine neueste Errungenschaft in der Farbe Pink reiht sich in das bisherige positive Feedback direkt ein.
Blazer dürfen meiner Meinung nach gerne mit Schulterpolstern versehen werden, um eine gewisse „Coolness“ und Individualität zu erreichen, in meinem Fall liegt die Hose am Knöchel enger an, weist aber ansonsten ein doch eher weiteres Bein auf. Für mich bietet der Hosenanzug eine tolle Möglichkeit sowohl businesstauglich, als auch stylisch und angesagt in der Freizeit unterwegs zu sein. In freien Zeiten bevorzuge ich dabei die Variante einen Spitzen-BH unter dem Blazer zu tragen und dazu Sneaker oder Slipper zu kombinieren. Ich habe euch ein paar Bilder von meinem Zweiteiler in Pink sowie aktuelle Exemplare aus diversen Online-Shops zusammengetragen. Natürlich handelt es sich hierbei nur um einen Ausschnitt der aktuellen Modelle, die für mich jedenfalls sehr ansprechend daherkommen. Wie sieht es bei euch aus: Habt ihr ebenfalls eine bunte Kombination bei euch im Kleiderschrank?

Viel Spaß beim Stöbern und habt alle einen schönen Sonntag!

Paris Fashion Week Street Style | Aylin Koenig

15. März 2018

ENG: I have been back in Hamburg for a couple of days now and look back at the time of Paris Fashion Week with rather mixed feelings. Of course Paris is an amazing city with unbelievably many sights and shopping areas that let the heart of any woman skip a beat, but the city has also not been spared of the cold, which created some frosty moments during our shoots!
Nevertheless I’d like to give you an overview of the looks that I wore during Paris Fashion Week. To me fashion is a passion that I consume every day and that I like to share with my surroundings, whether in the snow or during times of heat. Especially lately I received so many private messages with lovely comments on Instagram, that really touched me and make me incredibly happy. I am always so excited to see that my passion for fashion and lifestyle motivates and even inspires others. But let’s get to the looks of Paris Fashion Week, which I have put together for you in the following. I hope you have fun looking through them and please leave your feedback on your favorite look in a comment! Continue Reading…

I really hope, that I can show more vernally outfits pretty soon, it is definitely time for warmer temperatures. :-)

#TheDifferenceSheMakes: Frauenpower in jeder Tasse mit Nespresso

18. Februar 2018

Anzeige

ENG This past Friday I attended a brunch event by Nespresso in line of the Berlinale, which was really interesting to me as an independent blogger. It was about the new #TheDifferenceSheMakes campaign, which is about female empowerment. The term covers measures and strategies to promote independence and autonomy of women, which is part of Nespresso’s sustainability program and aimed at the female coffee farmers in the particular growing countries. Since I, as an independent blogger, am in the situation all the time, where I have to self-responsibly make decisions that may have an impact on my immediate social surroundings, I was very keen on the idea of the campaign and the event.
In case you missed my Instagram Stories from last Friday, I would like to give you a personal insight on the brunch event in the following.

In order to make the topic known in Germany, I think Nespresso came up with something really special: The new Pink Latte is supposed to send a message for women and their impact on society in general. Not only in coffee farming, but also in areas like film and TV women take an important role and can make an important difference, true to the motto #TheDifferenceSheMakes. Bright pink and full of power, this is the statement Nespresso is making on the occasion of the Berlinale with the Pink Latte. In case you are wondering what’s behind the drink now yourselves, I would like to introduce you to the recipe here:

  • 10 ml Wild honey
  • 40 ml Espresso LE Robusta Uganda or Arpeggio
  • 25 ml Beetroot juice
  • 50 ml Milk

Firstly you give the honey into a large, 250ml glass, then brew the Espresso (40 ml) and add this to the glass and stir until mixed with the honey. Afterwards the milk and beetroot juice have to be stirred until foaming and can be added to the glass. To finish it off you can add the nutmeg to the froth and/or decorate the whole thing with a beetroot chip. It is a very unusual taste at first, but really delicious, and it’s an absolute eyecatcher too! 

To make a statement for strong and autonomous women with my outfit, I wore a knitted jacket with colorful ribbon decorations by Preen Line. With a simple Jeans by Lovers & Friends I wore the tough Balenciaga Boots, which are a statement in themselves already. The event last friday took place at the Nespresso Rooftop Café at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin and it was definitely an impressive location for the topic of female empowerment.

From Tuesday the 20th February on you can all try the new Pink Latte in all Nespresso boutiques and take a stand for the empowerment of women.
In the follwing I have put together a couple of pictures from the event and the drink. Have a beautiful and relaxed Sunday!

DE: Am vergangenen Freitag war ich im Rahmen der Berlinale bei einem Brunch Event von Nespresso, das mich als selbstständige Bloggerin besonders interessiert hat. Es ging hierbei um die neue #TheDifferenceSheMakes Kampagne, bei der das Thema ‚female empowerment‘ im Mittelpunkt steht. Unter dem Begriff werden Maßnahmen und Strategien zur Förderung der Unabhängigkeit und Selbstbestimmung von Frauen verstanden, was sich als Teil des Nachhaltigkeitsprogramms von Nespresso an die Kaffeefarmerinnen in den jeweiligen Anbauländern richtet. Da ich mich als Bloggerin selbst regelmäßig in der Situation befinde, eigenverantwortlich Entscheidungen treffen zu müssen, die auch auf mein Umfeld Einfluss haben können, war ich von der Idee der Kampagne und des Events sofort angetan. Falls ihr meine Instagram Stories vom vergangenen Freitag verpasst haben solltet, möchte ich euch im Folgenden gerne noch einmal einen persönlichen Einblick vom Brunch Event gewähren.

Um das Thema auch in Deutschland bekannt zu machen, will Nespresso mit dem Pink Latte ein Zeichen für Frauen und ihren Einfluss auf die Gesellschaft im Allgemeinen setzen. Nicht nur im Kaffeeanbau, auch in Bereichen, wie Film und Fernsehen nehmen Frauen eine zentrale Rolle rein und können dabei den entscheidenden Unterschied ausmachen, getreu dem Kampagnenmotto #TheDifferenceSheMakes. Strahlend pink und voller Power, so will Nespresso anlässlich der Berlinale mit dem Pink Latte ein Statement setzen. Falls ihr nun selbst neugierig sein solltet, was sich hinter dem Getränk verbirgt, möchte ich euch gerne kurz das Rezept vorstellen:

  • 10 ml Waldhonig
  • 40 ml Espresso LE Robusta Uganda oder Arpeggio
  • 25 ml Rote Bete Saft
  • 50 ml Milch

Gebt zunächst 10ml Waldhonig in ein 250 ml Glas, bereitet dann einen Espresso (40 ml) im Glas zu und verrührt diesen mit dem Waldhonig. Anschließend müsst ihr die Milch und den Rote Bete Saft schäumen und den Milchschaum in das Glas geben. Zum Abschluss kann noch das Muskat auf den Milchschaum gerieben und/oder das Ganze mit einem Rote Bete Chip dekoriert werden. Ein zunächst ungewöhnlicher aber super leckerer Geschmack, optisch ist der Pink Latte auch definitiv ein Hingucker.

Um mit meinem Outfit selbst ein Zeichen für starke und selbstbestimmte Frauen zu setzen, habe ich für das Event eine Strickjacke mit bunten Schleifenverzierungen von Preen Line getragen. Neben einer schlichten Jeans von Lovers & Friends, habe ich mich zudem noch für die derben Balenciaga Boots entschieden, die schon für sich ein Statement darstellen.
Das Event am letzten Freitag fand im Nespresso Rooftop Café am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin statt und war für das Thema Frauen-Power definitiv eine beeindruckende Location.

Ab Dienstag, d. 20.02.18 könnt ihr in allen Nespresso Boutiquen den neuen Pink Latte probieren und damit selbst ein Zeichen zur Stärkung von Frauen setzen. Im Folgenden habe ich euch ein paar Bilder von dem Event und Getränk zusammengestellt. Habt alle einen schönen und entspannten Sonntag!

Alberta Ferretti Shirt & Fendi Triplette bag

16. Februar 2018

ENG: From Mallorca to Hamburg and then straight to Berlin and Cologne, that’s what yesterday and today looked like. But I am of course not trying to complain, because we were able to define many details for the wedding during our short trip, about which I will of course keep you posted. As I have already mentioned in the last ‚weekly focus‘, we are in Berlin for a couple of hours today to attend an event by Nespresso and Vogue in line with the Berlinale and we are back on the road afterwards to our previous hometown – for a fitting of potential wedding dresses, and of course I won’t take my darling fiancé here! With the sunny but freezing weather that is present at the moment I didn’t want to keep today’s outfit from you, which is why I took the chance of the first rays of sunlight to take some new photos.
Absolutely rebellious as you know me I am wearing a “Wednesday”-T-Shirt by Alberta Ferretti on a Friday, which definitely is the color highlight in this outfit. I picked up the the feminine color scheme also with the bag, which is by Fendi; the amazing thing about the Fendi Triplette is the color combination, which can be combined wonderfully to various outfits. My beloved Prada Mules take on the blush rose of the bag again and make the outfit perfect. The coat is from the designer collection by ‚HM x Richard Quinn‘ and I think it’s a very special piece especially because of its sleeves. The highwaisted jeans by Closed gives the up until now rather chic outfit an athletic and casual touch and the sunshine makes you want to wear sunglasses too: Here I decided to go for one of my favorite pair by Chloé.

I am always incredibly excited about your feedback and would love to know if you also try to wear two or more pieces of the same intense color in one outfit?
