For fall and winter I love to combine skirts with cozy oversized coats and boots. And although we all love over knee boots, I also needed to get some slouch boots this year. Some weeks ago I found the perfect black ones at Oasis.
It’s officially fall and that means it’s time to get our over knee boots and trench coats out of our wardrobes again. Because besides cozy sweaters and cardigans, over the knee boots and trench coats are the fashionable incarnation of fall.
Slowly, but surely summer seems to be over and fall has finally arrived. And like each and every year I await fall with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m a little sad that it’s going to be colder and colder outside, but on the other hand I’m looking forward to the “leatherjackets, cozy sweaters and booties“- time of the year.
Strappy heels. Besides gladiator sandals, strappy heels are THE summer 2015 shoes trend! But strappy heels aren’t only a summer thing – the trend will hold on for fall. Luckily – because I just ordered these beautiful and classy black strappy heels by Buffalo. And if you also can’t get enough of the strappy heels trend, here are some styling tips:
Each and every summer, there are countless palazzo pants inside the stores. Floral prints, airy fabrics and loose patterns – the perfect pants for summer days, on vacation and at home. (Preferably on vacation, of course.) But palazzo pants aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. A lot of people find them too playful or too shapeless. Some have the feeling to „go down“ in palazzo pants and others think palazzo pants appear bulky. So, whoever only dislikes the shape of palazzo pants, may fall in love with the new trend pants: flared hippie pants.
This year fringes are the must-have! Whether we’re talking about shoes, bags, necklaces, jackets, vests, shirts or skirts – everything that comes with fringes is up to date! And how do we like that? Well, I don’t know how you like it, but I think it’s great. I already showed you a fringed vest in the look „Double Denim meets 70ies“ and a fringed shirt in the look „This is summer“. And for todays look I picked up a very special fringed piece: a fringed suede cape.
I guess most of us probably won’t travel to California this weekend, won’t visit Coachella and won’t dance the night away on desert sand. Is it a pity? YES! Is it a reason to be sad? Maybe. But for those, who would love to experience a little bit of Coachella flair, consolation is in sight: This year hippie, boho and 70ies looks are more fashionable than ever – and not only for two weekends in California. Fringes, suede, lace and crochet details dominate the fashion collections in store. Anyone who’s not a big fan of that, probably won’t get lucky this summer. But for everyone else, including me, it’s like a big Coachella party 2 go!
I’ve got my leather pants on! Again. Again and again. At least until it’s getting too warm to wear them. But even if it’s midsummer, I would still consider to take my leather pants out on breezy summer nights. And if it’s way too warm, it’s not the end for leather pieces. We can easily switch to suede mini skirts, that are supposed to be a huge spring / summer trend this year. (You can have another look at my favorite spring / summer 2015 trends here.)
Slowly but surely I’m fed up with winter – and that means it’s time to have a look at the upcoming fashion trends for spring and summer 2015. Besides some well-known trends, we can also look forward to some new and interesting ones. And because the upcoming season has a lot to offer, I decided to show my absolute favorites first.
“…where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do. Now you’re in New York Cologne.“ New York or Cologne – where’s the difference? Ok, although I’m badly in love with Cologne, I must confess that there might be a little difference between these two cities. Aside from the fact that Cologne (of course) is much more beautiful, New York may be a little more lively. But during the next days the gap is going to decrease. Why? Because it’s Cologne carnival! And that means streets will be crowded and there will be almost nothing you can’t do, or become – just like in New York!
Have you ever thought about how it would be to be Carrie for one day or even more important to own her closet? If I had one wish and I wasn’t allowed to wish for peace but rather only for material things, I guess I would choose Carrie Bradshaws closet. By the way – who doesn’t think of Sex and the City, Cosmopolitans and shoes when hearing the name „Carrie“, must have fallen into a deep sleep during the last years. And who doesn’t know what I’m talking about when I say „Carrie“ and „tulle skirt“, needs to have a look at the Sex and the City Intro quickly.

April showers bring May flowers. I don’t really see that right now, cause it seems as if May would shower, too. The last days haven’t been as sunny as they should. But we finally would love to wear our summer dresses, relax in the sun, sit in front of the cafes and have a barbecue in the park. Slowly I’m getting a little impatient and each morning I wake up, I at first have a look, if it’s sunny outside. And while I’m sitting in my kitchen right now, it really seems as if the sun is shining today. I’m hoping it will stay this way. Cross your fingers!
If there is one thing I really dislike doing than it’s ironing. Clean the windows – okay, vacuum cleaning – no problem, wash the dishes – why not, but ironing? I don’t really know why I dislike ironing that much, but somehow the iron isn’t one of my favorite objects. My last iron had to learn about the hard way. About one year ago I moved into my new place and I truly lazed away my iron by mistake. Never let it be said that wishes can’t come true.
