Happy Monday you guys,

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

is is snowing where you live? Just asking cause it is pure chaos here. The snow was predicted to come a week ago and as it didn´t snow so we thought we would be safe but the weather has fooled us.

So this look is from last week when we went to try out the new breakfast/brunch place I told you about on Saturday (that is why there is no snow in the pictures).

Do you guys love the poncho trend? I personally love it. Wheather it is capes, ponchos or huge blanket scarves to wrap around my shoulders. I definitely want. The story behind this piece is really funny though. I got it at the Zalando Outlet Store in Leipzig (view travel post here) and realized a few days later, as I was unpacking and hanging stuff on my closet rack that I already had the same piece in a dark green shade (view photo here). These are the disadvantages of not trying things on but this time in a positive way cause I love wearing the green one so much.

I paired my poncho with a skirt like last time. Don´t be intimidated by wearing your poncho with a skirt. If you take a slim silhouette on the skirt it doesn´t look bulky what you might think in the first place. I have worn this short black faux leather skirt and a pair of black giraffe print tights (absolutely love my patterned tights). 

For some pop of color I decided to go with burgundy since I have neglected it pretty bad during the Christmas time. First I thought the shirt would be too dark underneath the poncho and create a strange shadow but it was fine. To complete the color theme I added this burgundy velvet bow and one of my favorite handbags from DKNY. 

My lipstick is the Maybelline Moisture Exteme lipstick in color Burgundy. One of my favorite lipsticks in my drawer. I have it two time cause I am afraid that someday they won´t produce it anymore.

As always thank you for stopping by.

Good morning guys,

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

and happy Hump Day. I am back with another fashion post today. I am finally getting  back to my normal posting routine. No more ocassional posts or themes I had to move forward. Which means I am posting mainly about fashion trends and outifits and once a week a recipe, a personal post, a beauty review or a a travel itinerary (in case you are new around here).

This look was shot at a park in Leipzig behind the MDR Panorama tower we visited (Leipzig post is up tomorrow). I personally love the color red and also highwaisted paperbag pants. There is something so chic but comfortable about them. Even if you woudl only combine a simple shirt or body suit to it, it would still look put together and chic.

The leopard print cardigan I am wearing above is pretty old but still a huge trend. You can get almost every piece of clothing with leopard print and I love that. The pattern is here to stay.

For leaving the focus on the pants I went with a black turtleneck and simple ankle booties. But to be honest a little glam should not be missed at an outfit so I added a pair of big gold hoops and a golden flap bag from Aldo.

Summed up this is a really nice, comfortable and cozy but still chic and a little glam winter look. Also adding some color never hurts. When all of your surroundings are dull be sure to match your coffee cup.

Thanks for stopping by and if you are interested in my Leipzig city trip guide be sure to check back tormorrow.

How to style the corderoy trend // polka dot blouse + snake print boots…

Good morning guys,

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

I have my first day back at work today after almost three weeks off. So I hope this goes well (have a really bad feeling though).

 I wanted to share this adorable pink corderoy blazer I have shared on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago. One of my favorite bloggers – Teggy French – has worn it to the beginning of her #teggyfrenchchallenge and I couldn´t stop thinking about it. And also what is not to love. It is pink and corderoy is one of the huge latest fabric trends also it is under 40 and the quality is really good.

I ordered it from SheIn (be sure to check out my guide to shop their site here) and it arrived pretty quickly for the fact that the holiday hustle and bustle had already started and almost every shop was sending out late.

But let´s move on to the look. To make the pink stand out I decided to go with an all black and white look. The polka dot bow blouse was a find of a few weeks back. I officially had this one planned for another look but changed my mind so it was the perfect addition for this outfit.

Another hidden gem are these beautiful boots. I got them on Black Friday from Mango and loved them ever since. They are so outstanding and although they have a pattern all over they match great with so many different pieces. 

Be brave and experiment bold bright colors and different patterns for the new year. I definitely will incorporate that more into my daily outfits. Hope you like it.

But let´s get another cup of coffee and conquer that work day.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
