our weekend full of delicious food and doing not much more than to eat is over and what is left is a cold and snowy (sooo much snow!!!) Monday morning. So to brighten up your day I am sharing the softest leopard print sweater with you, you probably will ever own. The quality is great and it has the perfect color/print combination I have ever found. And do you want to know the best ?? Of course you do. It is UNDER 25 €.
I ordered it from SheIn two weeks ago and what can I say more than that it is beautiful. I just love every leopard piece I see at the moment (posted about this beautiful cardigan last week). If you are very tall I would recommend wearing the pullover with a highwaisted skirt/jeans because it isn´t too long (only in one size available). I am 5´5 (1,64 cm) and it fits fine.
I combined it with a black faux leather skirt and a pair of matching brown suede booties. Also the hat matched the theme pretty great. Since I don´t want to go all black in the winter cause it is already dark enough outside I try to find as many pieces in the same hue to wear with black and lighten up the whole look a little.
And cognac brown and black are one of the best color combinations to date. Always look on point and very chic. Aboslutely love it. This totally could be a go-to cause it always works.
I am really not a fan of the weather these days but after I hared about the -30° in Chicago I take it and will stop complaining. Not so easy cause I have probably hit a new low in terms of snow and ice this morning. My car windows have frozen on the oustide as well as on the inside. I really couldn´t believe it. Have you tried scratching inside? No, good for you cause it doesn´t work. You have to sit it out.
But let´s move on to a much nicer theme. The leopard print cardigan I am wearing in today´s post. Leopard print is still going strong and where the basic piece section of every store was expanded with a striped piece about 2 to three years ago it now contains leopard print. I absolutely enjoy this circumstance cause when leopard print became popular you didn´t get a nice piece unless you were one of the first in the stores. Everything was sold out and only the ugly or super pricey pieces were left.
The cardigan I am wearing above is from Lost Ink. I have a few pieces of their brand and I love them all. The quality is really good and for that they are reasonable priced. Also love this one, doesn´t it look super romantic?! The cardigan is from the petite section but in my opinion it has a great lenght and doesn´t look akward on me (I am 5´5 / 1,65 cm ). I combined it with all black underneath cause I wanted the beautiful dusty blue color to pop right out. The speckles are black and yellow. Overall it has a color combination I have never seen in a leopard print but that´s what makes me really like it.
I have worn it about ten times until now. A lot around the house too cause it is just so cozy and comfortable. I have also worn it unbelted and with a black slim dress underneath. Looks great as well. A light gray color also looks really nice with it and if you have a yellow one in the same hue as the speckles be sure to wear it, I bet it would look awesome.
Wishing you a great day today. Last day at work today and I am so happy about that cause I have tons of stuff to do around the house and also since I was alone at my office the whole week I got really really bored.
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.

pink corderoy blazer jacket SheIn / snake effect boots Mango / black hat H&M sold out similar here and here / handbag old similar here and here – orignal version here and here / black leggings similar here and here / polka dot blouse similar here and here / lips NYX Bloody Mary
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.
