trend report | white summer dresses

6. April 2018

ENGFinally it’s time: I can wear my beloved white dresses again. As you have probably seen on my Instagram account I am in Dubai since Monday, and I don’t only enjoy the surroundings, but also the climate. The cold and especially the rain back home have really been a bummer lately, especially because love the sun so much and love styling summery outfits. Since you all enjoyed my last photos so much, I wanted to go into a little more detail on my current favorite trend: white summer dresses. Especially with slightly tanned skin and handpicked accessories, great outfits are easy to create. For example I love wearing big sunglasses and sandals – and the outfit is almost ready. I also love using different scarves as headbands or hair ties, because they let my hair look perfectly styled after a long day in the water. I have put together a little selection of dresses that I personally really like – and I hope they will finally bring summer to Germany after all!

Have fun looking through them and sunny greetings from Dubai. :-) Continue Reading…

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!

Trend Report: Yellow Spring

18. März 2018

ENGSince there haven’t been any terndreports up on the blog in a while, I wanted to get back to it with full spring-energy! None of us will get away from today’s topic in the near future, because it’s the trend color of spring: YELLOW! To me, yellow has an incredibly positive vibrancy around it, that i immediately connect to warm summer days and fresh flowers.
I have added a number of yellow pieces to my wardrobe already this year, which include a blazer, a cardigan and a blouson by Nobi Talai. There are so many ways of combining yellow pieces, and they all seem very fresh and vivid after the long winter. Some people still avoid the color, but all I can say is: Dare to wear it! Especially with white or light blue pieces some wearable and definitely every-day-looks can be created. I am sure that my closet will go in the yellow-direction a but more soon!
Long story short: I have picked my current favorites from various online shops and hope that  you find some pieces as well. Have fun rummaging through them and especially trying them on! :-)

trend report | home love

7. Februar 2018

ENG Every time I show our apartment on Instagram Stories I get asked if I don’t want to show more from our four walls. We are indeed planning a couple of new projects for our home which would also include a short video: Would you generally be interested in something like that? Maybe you have also seen that I have my own, little interior-shop at westwingnow.de, where all of the products we currently have at home are linked to.
There is nothing better, than coming home after an event or a longer trip to a beautiful home, where with the right bits and pieces I can create an oasis of well-being. Following this I have put together a couple of pieces from our apartment and I hope you enjoy browsing through them. Maybe some of you will even find something fitting for themselves.

DE: Jedes Mal, wenn ich unsere Wohnung auf Instagram Stories zeige, erreichen mich wahnsinnig viele Nachrichten, ob ich nicht mehr aus unseren eigenen vier Wänden zeigen möchte. Tatsächlich planen wir für die Zukunft neue Projekte rund um unsere Wohnung, wozu auch ein kleines Video gehören würde: Hättet ihr hieran grundsätzlich Interesse? Vielleicht habt ihr auch schon mitbekommen, dass ich auf der Startseite von westwingnow.de einen eigenen, kleinen Interior-Shop besitze, wo all unsere Produkte, die wir aktuell zuhause besitzen, verlinkt sind.
Für mich gibt es nichts Schöneres, als nach einem Event oder einer längeren Reise nach hause zu kommen und mir mit den richtigen Produkten eine kleine Wohlfühl-Oase zu schaffen. Im Folgenden habe ich euch ein paar Teile aus unserer Wohnung zusammengestellt und wünsche euch viel Spaß beim Stöbern. Vielleicht ist ja für den einen oder anderen etwas dabei.

Trend report | Sneaker

29. November 2017

ENG: Sneakers are absolute Must-Haves for every season. During summer with a light tulle skirt, in fall with ripped jeans, or during winter with an Oversized-Coat –  I am an absolute Sneaker-Lover and wear them with all kinds of different outfits. They loosen up every outfit and add a cool touch – and sincere there are so many different varieties, I have picked some of my favorites for you. As you have probably seen, I am wearing white Gucci Sneaker with studs in one of my last Instagram photos. They look great with a plissé skirt, or even with denim. Not as versatile as those, but instead an absolute statement piece are the Balenciaga Triple S Sneaker, that I like to wear with a simple pair of jeans and a cosy knitted jumper – add a shoulder bag (here you can find a trend report to shoulder bags) – and voila! The perfect outfit for colder days is done. 

As a great sneaker fan I own pairs in all different colors and shapes – from the peculiar Balenciaga Tripple S to the Adidas Originals or Nike Air Max – and that is why I have put together some of my favorites. I hope that you will find something you like there! Have fun shopping!

trend report | bag shoulder strap

19. November 2017

ENG: Based on several requests concerning my shoulder straps for bags, I’ve decided to use this topic as today’s trend report. There are lots of different straps, that can be adapted individually and have the potential to upgrade any kind of outfit. My first strap was a Fendi model being one of my most preferred accessories for a long time, even today I’m regularly using it based on its ability to add that certain something within my outfits. For sure this Fendi version is rather expensive, so that I’ve made a wide-ranging selection in different price categories. Especially the current straps from Aigner belong to my favorites, I’m owning a model in red and a nude one with gold colored studs. I’m really a huge fan of shoulder straps as their specifications regarding the particular design, color and material mix are able to be the perfect outfit add-on. Especially during the cold and dark season straps ensure a certain portion of color and guarantee a trendy style and of course individualism. Below you can find a selection of my current favorites and I hope, that even for you is an appropriate model available. Enjoy rummaging!

What do you think about straps? Do you share my enthusiasm for this trend? Happy Sunday to all of you!

trend report | belt bags

12. November 2017

ENG: Once again I’m delayed with a new trend report, this time due to the fact that I’ve been in Munich this week for the fashion press days. More information about my time, meetings and experiences in Munich is going to be part of tomorrow’s ‚weekly focus‘. Today’s focus is completely on the good old belt bags, for me an it-piece this season after the first trend of this bag variation in the 90’s.
My first model of such a belt bag was the dark red Prada being able to be used in three different wearing options based on its functionality. You can choose between the elegant clutch, a casual shoulder bag with a gold colored strap or even the cool and hip belt bag. At the moment I’m still looking for a nice vintage model from Chanel – let’s look and see, if it works in the near future. Below you can find a selection of different belt bags, I hope you can find your own favorite, especially when thinking about the upcoming Christmas time. :-)

Happy Sunday to all of you!
