Good morning friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am sharing my first snow included look this winter. We didn´t even think about snow in November or December as it was way to warm but now it is here and more than ever (picutre was just the beginning of a week long snow storm).

Since I am not a huge fan of tight pants in general there are some alternatives I love wearing on the colder days like this pretty track pant I got on sale from Zara (I also have the olive version, view post here).

I paired it with a retro inspired two colored pullover with bell sleeves I got from H&M many years ago and a color matching silk scarf I tied to a bow. I honestly loved the bow around my neck very much. It gave the whole look such a sophisticated touch.

Also black and white is never a bad idea. I often reach for this combination when I have absolutely no clue what to wear and add a splash of color to it. Et voilá you have a look.

All together this makes a total work appropriate winter look for your office. You could also change the boots for a pair of black heels and you are good to go.

 Hope you are having a great week so far. I am through the middle of my work week already and I couldn´t be happier. Somehow I am still in the weekend.

Winter Style // Windowpane blouse + pleated skirt…

Hi guys

and happy Friday. I wanted to post another post today – one a little more on the personal side- but I recognized before posting it, I hadn´t have any picutres for it. #absolutebloggerfail So I am continuing with this look we shot in the snow last week. This was the most we got but others regions where totally shot down and no one could get in or out of there so I am really glad about that.

The Look

I am a total skirt girl. Picking skirts and dresses over anything else so I wanted to share this adorable pleated school girl chic skirt with you. It is an old piece but there are lots of similar styles out there. So for the bottom I have worn a pair of black tights and a pair of overknee boots. Since the pattern and color is going on on top I wanted to keep it pretty simple. 

The bell sleeve trend was made for me. I love the romantic touch it adds established as other prints which came out lately. The pullover has a cropped fit so it fit perfectly over the blouse and left just as must uncovered to have a nice look at the print.

The lipstick I am wearing in the picutres above is called Lady Danger and is from MAC. It matches the color a 100%. In fact this was my first ever lipstick I got from MAC and it hooked me forever. I recently wrote a post about my favorite red lipsticks. You can read about it here

So for the other post I wanted to share, I am going to schedule it for next week or even for Sunday. Not quite sure how I get around on taking the picutres. But there is a lot of personal stuff going on these days so my time got limited and I also am not as creative. Hopefully this comes back quickly but I still have lots of fashion posts planned for you guys.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for my weekly round-up. Have a nice evening. to any kind of shirt/sweater/blouse. It might not always be the most practical but if I am honest most of the time I choose style over anything else. The windowpane pattern has been here for a while and while I like it a lot it hasn´t gotten as established as other prints which came out lately. The pullover has a cropped fit so it fit perfectly over the blouse and left just as must uncovered to have a nice look at the print.

Winter Style // Faux Fur Collar Cardigan + black flower dress on sale for under 10 €….

dress Mango / faux fur collar cardigan old similar here and here / H&M patent pumps / lips Maybelline Superstay in color Lover / hand bag from Fashion Drug, origianal here similar here

Hi guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

the days are still short and it is still cold outside (not a surprise in the middle of January over here) but at least the snow is gone.

I have been wearing this look about two weeks ago and also the exact same about two month before and I have to say a faux fur collar doesn´t hurt at all. Not only does it look like a light and modern version of a fur coat Anastasia would wear, it also makes you feel warm and fancy.

I paired it with a black dress full of flowers, I got from the Mango online shop some time ago. The dress also includes hues of olive and and white but I think to go with grey accessories was the best choice here.

 This really is a easy and flowy winter outfit. I am always all about dresses and skirts before pants. It is just way nicer than wearing pants. We have all the possibilities here so we gotta take advantage of that.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
