Haven´t felt so Ralph Lauren fall collection like in quite a while. The heavy knit pullover and the plaid pencil skirt fitting so seamlessy into the background of dark brown wood and lush green moss like straight out of a commercial.

I absolutely love combining an oversized sweater with a slim silhouette like a skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. The sweater was really warm and fit perfectly with the pencil skirt I got from H&M.

Brown hues are usually not my favs but these are gorgeous together. The bag I am wearing in the picutres above was the second leather bag I have ever gotten. This has probably started my handbag addiction.

Since there are so many different colors in the skirt you could also choose a black sweater / heels and bag combo but I preferred a lighter color on top.

Hope you are having a great day so far. The middle of my week is already over and I couldn´t be more happy about that. It has been very exhausting since Monday morning and there is more which needs to be done, but more about that later.

Be sure to check out the H&M online store sale section. There are tons of sales going on to incredible prices. I am sure you could find some pieces who could be transitioned into spring easily like the skirt I am wearing above. I got this one and wore it yesterday and I love it. Post is going to be up soon.

Good morning to all my working girls,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I am sharing a long overdue post in the work category today. As you might know I am working 4 full days of the week at an engineering office and therefore I always have lots of stuff with me which normally includes my phone, keys, charger, wallet, my makeup pouch and another one for other things like hand sanitizer, pencils, gum.
 I also have my Erin Condren life planner with me along with my breakfast, lunch and a small snack for in between, as well as my tea bottle and two water bottles (I need this much stuff because there is no way of getting food at my work place and we are also in the middle of nowhere so there is nothing around).
 Most of the food/drink stuff is in a small separate basket but let´s think of the possibilty of also carrying your notebook or tablet in your handbag too.
 
I got this beautiful yellow satchel (color is called safran) bag from my husband for my birthday last week and loved it ever since. Not only do I truly love the brand (it is from Lauren by Ralph Lauren) and wanted to own a bag of theirs for the longest time but I also love the rich and vibrant shade of yellow. This will go with so much different looks I can´t wait to style it differently.
Don´t hesitate to use color for your office looks. If your color palette for clothes is more on the nude and/or darker side add a pop of color by a beautiful handbag. A red or even a vibrant 
 
For this and also for the fashionable reason I have rounded up a bunch of great options for your “office bag“. I would always pick a hand bag with a well made bottom that stands for itself. If you can see right inside it, clutter won´t be produced by searching for stuff. 
The perfect modell differs a little but I wouldn´t stray to far aside from a shopper, tote or satchel bag. I have listed my favorite finds for each price category since we all have different point of view on money and the worth of a hand bag for one personally.
The look I am wearing has become a go-to for me this winter. A comfortable knit midi skirt paired with a cute sweater, boots (preferable super cool statement boots) and a colorful bag. Of course I am wearing a jacket when I am outside but that would be a nice look for a more casual day at the office or even the wekend.

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.

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.

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
