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?
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. :-)
ENG: Today I would like to introduce a look, that is able to divide my user’s opinions based on the interaction of slipper with socks. Even last season I was a big fan of this combination, therefore I was even happier as my new Fendi slides arrived yesterday. I have already several variation possibilities in my mind but let us start from the very first beginning with the following outfit.
In detail it is all about the connection of the Fendi slipper with slightly transparent and black colored socks, even the combination with thick wool socks would be likewise suited. Furthermore I have decided for a cloth pants in black, a loose knitted sweater and an oversized, beige colored coat. The whole look is combined in matching colors with the slipper, just the small Prada bag ensures a certain spot of color. From my point of view this outfit is the perfect mix of style and protection against the cold temperatures outside.
What do you think about this look? Wish all of you happy Halloween!
ENG: Back in Hamburg I would now like to introduce my first autumn look being very causal and suitable for everyday life. The autumn in Northern Germany is meanwhile in full swing, therefore I’m no longer afraid of wearing long and warm coats. One of my current favorites is this plaid oversized coat from Edited, that I’ve also ordered in rose. From my point of view the coat has the perfect overall package of cut, pattern and length, in addition to that the price-performance ration is more than fair. As appropriate combination I’ve decided for a cozy hoodie and a vinyl pants in black as well as for my beloved Chanel sneaker, that I haven’t worn for a long time. The Prada velvet bag ensures a certain spot of color within this look, I wouldn’t like to miss it anymore.
What do you think about the look? Do you like autumn and a hopefully ‚Golden October‘ as well?
ENG: At the moment I’m totally obsessed by floral midi skirts, especially the combination with my beloved hoodies are more popular than ever for me. Concerning this model I’m not only convinced by the red-green coloring but also the cut is casual and sexy at once. Whereas the black colored hoodie is rather unspectacular and simple, there is a perfect match between the green elements of the Gucci sneaker and my new Prada Cahier velvet bag with the skirt design. For me it’s a very stylish outfit, that is definitely suited to daily use. Especially the everyday suitability is a pretty important part of my outfit combinations and this one suits all possible requirements. Instead of a hoodie you can even combine such a skirt with statement shirt or knitted sweater from my point of view, especially knitted pieces represent a sensible alternative for colder temperatures.
Now I’m very excited concerning your feedback. In this sense: Do you like this look?
ENG: Even if the summer in Northern Germany is rather a disaster so far and hardly perceptible, we’re getting closer to autumn and my passion for velvet step by step, always think positive and look forward. ;-) For me the most typical material during the cold season is velvet. Whether it’s in terms of bags, dresses, shoes or even tops, velvet is an essential part in autumn and winter.
Last year I couldn’t resist to purchase my beloved Gucci Marmont bag and even two weeks ago I felt in love again, this time with a dream bag from Prada in green. Today I would like to show you my current favorites of velvet bags and I’m sure, that everyone of you should find a suited model. In case of queries to single bags or even velvet products in general, you can gladly leave your feedback below.
ENG: Even if I’m already staying on Ibiza for a short blogger trip, I would like to introduce a new look from my home town Hamburg. Unfortunately the summer in Northern Germany is rather inconsistent this year with lots of rainy and grey days, so sometimes you’ve to be strong to avoid bad vibes.
The only thing that really helps is the decision for summery statement accessories, in this case happened it terms of my Gucci floral Marmont bag in green and the pink colored Prada mules. Both products cause a good mood and based on their colors and patterns it’s just fun wearing them at the moment. As suited add-on I have also decided for a white colored oversized blouse and a simple jeans for maintaining a certain outfit consistency. Followed quickly by the blue colored Ja-Jo Ray-Ban sunglasses and then there results a summery look being able to compete with the bad weather.
What do you think about this look? During the next days I can and will show you more summer content, promised. Stay tuned, it’s worth it! :-)
ENG: After the introduction of my new Edited the Label achievements within the latest „weekly focus„, I would now like to show you the first corresponding look with the striped oversized sweater, that is absolutely recommendable based on the flared sleeves and its casual cut. As suited combination I have made my decision for a destroyed jeans shorts, the velvet bag from Prada with the appropriate Fendi strap as well as my new Miu Miu slides with fur. For sure your opinions differ in regards of this foot wear but I am just loving the comfortable footbed and the silver colored round and angular rivets. During the summer months I can well imagine to wear the slides with a midi dress or even on colder days in combination with a cropped jeans as well as a thick oversized sweater.
ENG: Today I would like to show you a look being one of my absolute favorites during the last weeks. Even this time the main focus is an oversized piece in terms of the striped shirt from Edited the Label and this is exactly what I like. I have combined it with a destroyed jeans and the high Prada mules in order to create a casual and elegant mix rolled into one and this corresponds accurately to my preferred clothing style at the moment. The blue-grey Valentino bag in combination with the Fendi strap is the perfect rounding form my point of view, thus the whole look appears consistent and clear.
P.S.: The oversized shirt is even available in white and I am sure, that this color will also be a part of my shopping basket.
ENG: Based on the fact, that I could not say, from where I would post my this week’s focus, I can now give information about it: At the moment I am staying in my hometown Hamburg and say this in detail because we have thought about a trip to Spain until the last weekend. However with regard to my short-term journey to Turkey in the end of this week and the fantastic weather here in Hamburg at the moment, I am glad to remain at home for a couple of days and can thus spend more quality time with family and friends. What exactly I will do in Turkey and what will await me, is part of the next „weekly focus“, in addition to that there will be several exciting projects and journeys in June and July through Europe, so you can expect multifaceted content and hopefully fascinating field reports in the near future here on the blog as well as on Instagram.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: This week is starting in a smooth mood, so that we can work on rather unspectacular themes like archiving and accounting, even for self-employed blogger it is part of the daily business. Besides my joy about the successful project planning during the last days with travel destinations like Formentera, London, Chalkidiki and Berlin, I am especially looking forward to my stay in Turkey, until then I have a few commitments. By the way, this very day you can get 20% off with the code „AylinK20“ on the whole assortment of the fashion online shop NA-KD. Check it out, it’s worth it.
New In: With regard to new achievements, I can tell you a lot. I am especially happy about my new Chloé Susanna boots in suede beige, being a cooperation product from Farfetch. Even the black version of the boots really enjoyed me, so now I am very glad about the rather summery model, that is particularly suitable for combinations with white dresses from my point of view. In addition to that I have ordered a long skirt and a plaid one shoulder dress, from Asos I got a further dress and a white colored lace skirt. Next week I will show you my new pieces from Net-A-Porter, Revolve and Mother Denim, so stay tuned.
