let´s go on with tradition today cause on Wednesdays we wear Pink and don´t mind at all. I wanted to share this office look I have worn a few weeks ago with you cause maybe many girls stay away from wearing Pink / Blush at the office but in my opinion you don´t have to at all. Pops of color (moderatly) can spice up every look and at the end of the day it is your choice what to wear to look and feel great.
Office Edit – Flowers and Blush
The outstanding basics of the look are the black patent pumps and the pleated midi skirt. The black skirt has the perfect lenght for the office and the lace trim makes an interesting addition. But let´s add some contrast. A white blouse always works for a black skirt no matter the ocassion so what about flower print for Spring and Summer time. The pattern of the blouse I am wearing above is dramatic and the ruffled sleeves and the bow add up to the drama. You can always tune it down a notch but color and pattern totally can be your friend. To shut out the pattern quite a bit I paired my blouse with a blush colored blazer jacket. The pink hue is super light and abolutely not that colorful.
I went with my Coach handbag but you could definitely go with a black or white bag and still look fabulous.
Your personal style and clothing choices should always make you feel better and more confident. If you feel marvellous in your daily looks it rubs off onto your whole attitude and can totally affect your work ethic to the better. Sometimes it´s good to take risks. Even if it is just about a flower pattered blouse.
My Hamburg itinerary is going up tomorrow. I am sorry for the delay but we had been out for Chinese food yesterday and watched the final episode of GOT afterwards and I was just to tired and full to edit the picutres.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

we are still sticking to the crappy weather here so there is nothing else to do than post outfits from happier days.
I have already written about tweed last fall (view post here) cause it came back in stores very strong and people did not know how to handle the “grandma” material at first. I have always loved tweed cause in my opinion it has something royal and very chic to it nothing old and dusty. But that is just my opinion and if there is one field were opinons are drifting strongly apart like no other it is fashion.
So in today´s post I am sharing how to style a tweed jacket in a more casual way. The jacket itself is from H&M but it is so well made it totally looks like a high fashion designer piece. I absolutely love the mixture of blue, orange and white and it has also a few glitter threads. Just gimme all the glitter am I right?! It has a more boxed and cropped fit but I think that is totally fine and looks still great to combine to skirts, dresses or pants either way.
I combined it with a skirt this time (the first time I was wearing it with a pair of denim and I have to admit I didn´t like it that much that way), a white pencil skirt and a silky navy shirt with contrasting seams. My altime favorite color to add to white and blue is cognac brown and it also matched perfectly with the orange of the jacket. This really is a picutre book look for me I would wear over and over again. Although maybe the white skirt wasn´t the best choice to have Indian food afterwards but nothing happened so it was fine.
Hopefully I am finally able to post my Hamburg travel itinerary tomorrow or on Thursday. It is my mom´s birthday today so I am not quite sure if I get as much done as I want.

well, probably not to happy to most cause of work and other unpleasant stuff but we somehow have to start into the new week and why not by trying the best we can to make it brighter. The weekend has been amazing. The weather was Summer on point. It really couldn´t have been any more beautiful. Blue skies, warm breeze and sunshine the whole day. That lasted for exactly two days and today it is cloudy and the humidity is up to next level (frizz extreme). So I am throwing back to Saturday and share this adorable Summer look with you.
For Summer there is this one material which gets me immidiately in the mood and that is wicker. Whether it is a handbag, a hat or an adorable pair of shoes made out of wicker, it is the perfect addition or to be more clear, the perfect summer accessory to your closet for the nice and warm months of the year.
I recently got this super cute woven sun hat from Asos (brand is South Beach) and been wearing it a lot. Is is super lightweight and the black ribbon around the brim makes it sophisticated matching so well with all kind of looks. I don´t like being in the sun for to long and if I have to a sun hat is always my first choice cause it protects your scalp and head and also your face from the sunrays.
In this look I have paired it with a gorgeous Summer dress I got on the H&M sale a few weeks ago (it is now sold out but I have linked a similar beauty above) and couldn´t wait to finally wear it (took a little longer than I expected). For accessories I went with all things wicker and raffia I could find. The bag I am wearing above is the closest dupe I could find to the Kult Gaia. It is made very similar but is a square instead of an arch and I personally like that better and also the price point is great. The last thing some raffia is involved are my beloved espadrilles. If you are a regular reader (or even if not) you might have noticed that I am obsessed with them (also got them in black). The price is great. The look and fit are perfect. The raffia sole, the off-white color and the pretty ribbon to tie around your ankle.
Are you a wicker fan or do you prefer pieces you can wear year round?
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
finally and guess what – the weather is a whole lot better than the days before. Remember my Tuesday post? All complaining about a never ending bad weather losing streak and now 20° C and sunshine.
So for today´s Food Friday post I am sharing a delicious burger recipe. I mean who doesn´t like burger am I right? And to be one step ahead I am riding the vegetarian wave here and offer you a zucchini patty between your two crispy buns.
This recipe is super easy and can totally save your evening cause it is also quick in the making, so delicious and has less fat and calories than any other burger patty. So if you can remember the zucchini poppers I made for last years soccer World Championship, this is the same, that´s all you need for you vegetarian zucchini burger. Just flat. You can find the recipe here.
All you have to add is whatever you like with your burger. That may be onions, cheese and salad or none of these ingredients at all. You can arrange it as you like. Maybe top it of with some fresh and crispy bacon if you aren´t a total vegetarian.
Another thing I love for BBQ season or Summer overall is cider. A cup of fresh and sparkly tasteful cider. Ice cold with some ice cubes. Tasting like apples or pears or berries. Isn´t that something you want to start your weekend with. Hopefully it stays warm enough this weekend to open a bottle or two.
We are also invited to a picnic on Sunday. Tricky when the weather isn´t acting in your favor. Also as your read this right know I am sitting at my hairdressers salon to freshen up my blonde and to get rid of some of the dry hair splits. Maybe I am sharing some before and after pics on my Instagram account. Be sure to follow @madame_schischi.
As always thanks for stopping by and I am wishing you a lovely weekend filled with lots of sunshine and warmth.
