Monday Bloom link up on Macaroon Shades

Fall finally arrived in Germany, so I am ready to put all my neutrals out and playing with different textures to add interest.Pastely are making a surprising Statement for fall. I am balancing out the soft rose hue of my blazer and the sling pumps with the great autumnal cognac color leather pants. While my sweet Elena opted for a ladylike pastel Dress and Sofia for an Office chic Ensemble, I decided for a more casual chic Option. The Pants add just the right amount of edge to this classic blazer and instantly make the look cooler with a casual white tee.

Blazer & Tee: Zara, Pants: NewYork & Company loving those similar, Sling Pumps: Italian Designer, clutch: Asos, Necklace: See Jewelry

Cobalt against golden field

Sweater: Romwomen also available at Asos; Shorts: Asos; Heels: Zara; Bow Belt: Asos

Surrounded by golden fields  where I live, it was clear to take the chance- now that the farmer cut off the corn- to take some nice contrasting pictures of my red/blue look. Shorts in all their difference appearance when it comes to textures, pattern and color can be worn all season long- in my opinion anyways. However I love wearing them the best in the fall/winter time with tights and boots.

I caught the last warm sunny evening two weeks ago to wear my new ovoid textured shorts. The material is so thick and unique, perfect for the upcoming chilly days. It would have been too elegant when I would have paired it with a white silky blouse, so I wanted to give it a playful touch with this striped sweater and heart elbow patches. It's so super sweet that I got in navy blue as well :-)

PS: It was such a challenge to get up to those 2m  hay bailes, let me tell you. Being up there, it was such a shaky affair. The things I take on for my blog ;-)

Have a great start in the week!

PS: Don't Forget that the theme for our next Monday Bloom is "Delicate Pastels".
Save September 30th and join our Month Challenge. Remember that is has to be a new post!

Silk vs.Leather

Trench Coat: Zara similar here or here ; Leather Pants: New York & Company similar from H&M; Top: Zara (old); Heels: Via Uno; Bag: Michael Kors; Sunnies: Esprit

I am shielding against the elements in style with my classic Zara twill trench coat. Wearing it cinched at the waist with leather Pants and metallic heels for an elegant yet edgy Approach. I totally love the contrast between silk and leather which causes a glossy finish.

The belted piece can be worn cinched at the waist or left open for a more relaxed take, whatever you feel like.

Nothing is as classic as a trench coat that will transition seamlessly from summer to fall.

PS: I am a happy and proud auntie now. My godson Erik was born yesterday *so excited to meet this little bundle of joy in a couple of weeks*

Camo tomboy chic + wedding guest attire winner

Necklace: Zara; Blouse and Sweater: H&M; Blazer: Zara;  Pants: C&A; Peep Toes: Gabor; Bag: Italian Leather Designer Bag by Carbotti

I got inspired to create this tomboy chic look by Jenna Lyons, the creative director of J. Crew. Her significant style is :

  • Wearing opposites like feminine/masculine.

  • Mixing up textures like wearing sweater with silk

  • Wearing statement jewelry

I added a luxe touch to my camo pants by topping it with my favourite jewel Statement necklace and a white silk button up.  Camo pattern paired with elegant black basics like a blazer or pumps looks serious. A classic way to be dressed to have dinner with friends or the man's friend.

Don't you think Jenna is a great style Icon?

Announcement of the wedding guest attire winner:
So our party guest-Catherine @ Not Dresses As Lamb is he winner of our“Wedding Guest Look” link up that was hosted by me, Elena and Rebecca. I hope you like the Illustration Elena created for you. I do for sure!

Monday Bloom Link up on Fall Wedding guest attire - Photo booth


Dress: Asos; Bag: Asos; Heels: Shoe Dazzle;Necklace: H&M

Recently, I got quite a few requests on what to wear to a wedding. I already did a post about what to wear on a summer wedding (click here).
As fall is approaching I am teaming up with my lovely Elena @ dc in style  and our guest host Rebecca @Red Tag Chic Los Angeles to show you what to wear to a fall wedding.

As important to look gorgeous on such an event it is also to capture those moments on pictures to look back at some great memories.The lovely Danielle  from treasuredmems contacted me and wanted to let you know how to create precious memories with a photo booth:

"Do you remember the excitement of jumping into a photo booth with your friends, making faces and posing for the camera? Or maybe you would drag your boyfriend or girlfriend in and surprise them with a kiss behind the curtain? Photo booths elicit fond memories from so many people and their place in history is undeniable. Andy Warhol made photo booths fashionable in the 1960’s asking celebrities like Marilyn Monroe to pose for him in a photo booth in Times Square. Soon he was asked to create magazine covers and exhibitions using his unique artistic take on the common photo booth.

Such an unmistakeable machine may have an auspicious place in history, but recently, they have started to emerge, coming back into the fold as a popular form of photography. Imagine your next event - wedding, engagement party, birthday - and being able to capture all those precious moments the way that they used to be captured. Photo booths are again an affordable and accessible way to document your special occasion, preserving wallet sized, lasting memories. There are many companies that offer photo booths for hire, they come in different sizes, with different cameras and printing capabilities. Treasured Mems offers stylish, curtained photo booths that come with an assistant. Imagine how excited your guests will be when they turn up to celebrate and realise that there is a photo booth involved!

While it’s common to take photos on our phones these days, sometimes you are just having too much fun to remember to take any photos. A photo booth makes the documentation of your event, a part of the event! It’s the perfect solution. And these days most photo booths come with the option to save your photos onto a usb, so not only do you have the thrill of receiving an instant, printed copy, you also have them saved so you can print more out of enlarge them if you like. They really add a little style and pizzazz to your event."

Thank you for this interesting info. If you want more information or even consider it for your next wedding or party, make sure to check out their homepage!
