ENG: To me there is almost no shooting location more beautiful than the old town of Ibiza. Every little street has their own, very special charme and combines ‘the new’ with ‘the old’ in a unique way. I love wearing simple and comfortable clothes when I am on holiday, but I still think the look needs a special piece to it. For today’s outfit I went for a oversized kimono with dots, loose denim shorts and a knotted top. In addition I wore my beloved Gucci Princetown Loafers, which I have neglected for a while and the perfect Gucci bag, which I borrowed from dear Karin. Unfortunately I can’t find it online anymore, but I will keep my eyes open, since its perfect to combine in any outfit, and can be worn crossbody and as a belt bag.
ENG: Happy sunny Sunday! The sun has been shining the entire day here in Hamburg, which honestly just felt so good – so we took the chance to take some photos straight away. With this outfit I would like to introduce you to my absolute favorite vintage find – this oversized Max Mara coat, which i spiced up with a Gucci belt. In combination with a black knitted sweater, a pair of Jeans, Gucci sneaker and the denim Chanel bag, this look isn’t only perfect for every day and every occasion, but also playful and stylish at the same time. The color combination of black, white and blue works well every time too, which is why I like to wear it to all kinds of events and occasions. Now I’m curious what you think:
Do you like the combination of ‘oversized’ coat and statement belt?
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: Right now we are enjoying Berlin Fashionweek to the fullest but exactely one week ago we got the chance to join „The Summer Sports day“ together with Net-A-Porter at the amazing Soho Farmhouse close to London. The event was simply awesome. The rooms, the crew, the guests – everything was organized just brilliantly. In case you are looking into spending some precious quality time countryside we can highly recommend you the Soho Farmhouse – just a stone through from busy London. It’s a hidden gem totally calm, idyllic and so charming a perfect hide away and the ideal place to seek some relaxation. The Farmhouse offeres everything in order to recharge your batteries. A well equipped gym, amazing spa facilities you can find even a small lake with little boats and – it cant get any cheesier – they even offer horse carriages to top it of with.
We had a fun schedule with yoga classes as well as some hula sessions and of course we couldn’t resist to take plenty photos in order to give you the best impressions of this wonderful stay. We chose two outfits provided by Net-A-Porter and I’m already looking forward to receiving your feedback on what you think.
Whats your favorite combination??
Thank you Net-A-Porter for having us – we cant wait to return to the Soho Farmhouse hopefully VERY soon! Continue Reading…
ENG: Sunny greetings from Ibiza, probably one of the cutest islands in Europe. We enjoy our time to the fullest so far and could already explore some nice spots and felt directly in love with the island’s old town, where we just had to take our first pictures. With regard to today’s city look, there is the main focus on the color „green“, in a way it is kind of a rediscovery for me but let me now introduce the corresponding pieces. In detail I have combined my beloved, green colored kimono with a casual jeans shorts from One Teaspoon and an one shoulder top from Edited the Label, that I also own in the variation beige/black striped. As matching color eye-catcher I have furthermore decided for my new GUCCI Marmont bag as well as the flip-flops from Givenchy and the black colored sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana.
Now we are heading to Formentera, I am already super excited about the island and will take you with me via Instagram Stories.
What do you think about this outfit – do you like the green focus?
ENG: Finally the weather in Hamburg is consistently good, so easy summer dresses can be grabbed from the wardrobe and worn without any problems. I am already looking forward to the season of summer dresses and its stylish combination opportunities.
Maybe you have recognized, that I stood in front of the camera last winter with Laura for the current Tom Tailor „EveryWearYouGo“ campaign and it was really a lot of fun. Today I am wearing in this context a relaxed summer dress from the collection and I have so say, that it is very comfortable and can be combined in plenty of different options. In this case I decided for an oversized used denim jacket and my new Gucci sneaker being an achievement from the London Heathrow airport. The matching color rounding of this summery and suited to daily use outfit belongs to the Valentino bag.
Have you actually noticed, that Laura and me took over the Instagram Stories account from Tom Tailor last Friday in order to show you our preferred spots in Hamburg? In keeping with the campaign’s motto „EveryWearYouGo“ we have started the day with a breakfast at the Literaturhauscafé and coffee at the Alsterperle before heading to the inner city of Hamburg. Take a look at the new collection, there are several appealing and hip pieces for this season.
ENG: The first warmer temperatures in Hamburg have a noticeable impact, so in the meantime I reach for light outfits more and more frequently. Even if I am a huge fan of oversized sweater and thick wool coats in all variations, I am every year from anew at Spring looking forward to grab summery pieces out of my wardrobe, a phenomenon being probably very familiar to all of you. ;-)
Last year I was a huge enthusiast of tulle skirts and even this season I will be it in all probability again. In the correct mix my new Edited the Label skirt appears feminin and casual likewise, for me the skirt is not only suited to daily use but is also appropriate for more festive venues based on its very comfortable fit. In order to create a certain coolness, I have unsurprisingly chosen an oversized piece in terms of a simple and easy sweater. Based on my withdrawal symptoms in L.A., I just had to make a decision for my Gucci Princetown loafer with fur based on its perfect combination of style and comfort from my point of view. These shoes are still an eye-catcher and topic of conversation, wherever I wear them. In addition to that I totally felt in love with the small Louis Vuitton Palm Springs backpack, I have looked out for it over a period of several weeks and can now call it my own, at this point I would already like to excuse myself for the overload with the backpack in the near future. ;-)
What do you think about this look? I wish all of you a nice weekend!
ENG: Our last day in L.A. has started and we are already looking forward to our flat, family, friends and even the daily life in Hamburg. :-) Nevertheless I would now like to introduce a look from the Rodeo Drive, before taking our return flight because I really like the outfit combination and hope you will share the same, positive associations.
You know my preference for combining the Balenciaga Ceinture boots with dresses, even in this case happened with this silk dress from the H&M Studio collection. I am just loving the contrast of the rough boots with elegant and loose dresses based on its ability to create casual and hip looks, that are also suited for daily life without any problems from my point of view. The appropriate rounding consists of a grey colored oversized hoodie from the H&M Unisex collection as well as my beloved Gucci Marmont bag made of velvet, being every time an eye-catcher and talking point on the street.
ENG: Until now I associated Los Angeles as cool spot with a modern and easy lifestyle but not necessarily as nice and idyllic city. However as we drove to Santa Monica beach for a daily trip last Tuesday, it had happened to me. I am totally in love with the bright beach sections, cute cafés, huge waves, the lifestyle feeling and open-minded people, so I directly had to shoot my first look at one of the diverse lifeguard tower.
The outfit’s centre is certainly the striped one shoulder top from Edited the Label, I am so addicted to the top, that I even own a second one of it in black in the meantime. The one shoulder piece is stylish and comfortable likewise, it can be used in different ways of combinations and is suited for a day on the beach or in the city at the same time. I am combining the top with a simple cropped jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as my Chanel bag, that I already spotted several times between West Hollywood and Santa Monica. ;-) We have some plans in mind for the upcoming days and will further share our honest impressions via Instagram with you, in addition to that we have already prepared some video footage, that will be introduced very soon.
What do you think about this look? Sunny greetings from California!
