We need this! Basics & classics

19 Feb

basic_and_classic

We all want Spring to be around the corner (check our Instagram and you’ll see a suspicious amount of flower pictures), but the truth is that we still have a couple of months of Winter left. At least in the North of Europe, where we live. That’s why I’m still thinking about adding a couple of nice and timeless pieces to my Winter wardrobe.
I love trends, but I just can’t help but leaning towards basic and classic pieces. This Winter I’ve been looking for a nice camel coat and some comfortable pointy pumps to add a little bit of sobriety and temperance to my closet. They are perfect for work, they can be dressed up or down and they make you look like a million dollars.

1. Masculine camel coat by Joseph. Over the shoulders tren anyone?

2. Cashmere boyfriend sweater by JCrew. It just goes with everything.

3. The most beautiful camel coat by Max Mara. I’m in love!

4. Cute Kitten heel pumps by Zara.

5. Leo print pointy pumps by JCrew. Perfection

6. Black pumps by Gianvito Rossi. The epitome of the investment piece.

Music always helps

15 Jan

Only Wednesday? Oh my! This week is neverending and super tough! We are struggling both work-wise (going back to work after more than two weeks of holidays is always a nightmare) and health-wise. The flu has hitted our little home, snif! But we have to get better because next weeks we are flying to London!

With this situation leaving home every morning is not easy. That is why I try to get motivated with music. It always helps, right? These are my top 3 let’s-kick-ass-(but-politely)-and-have-the-best-time-possible songs of the moment.

Happy by Pharrell Williams
Move in the right direction by Gossip
Roar by Katy Perry

None of them is the kind of song that makes you feel like Beyonce while walking to work, but they are positive and, well, basically happy songs! So if you are having a hard time lately, you should listen to them!

Any other let’s-kick-ass-(but-politely)-and-have-the-best-time-possible songs I should be aware of?

We need this! Peuterey parka

15 Jan

peuterey_rumor_furEven though German weather is not being that bad this Winter, it’s still cold. Quite cold. And since we know that terrible temperatures and snow storms will get here eventually, we can’t help but look for warmer coats. I saw this parka a few months ago and I have been thinking about it… I know parkas aren’t the best solutions for terribly cold weather, but I think this one can be the exception. It’s slim cut, wooden cloth and fur trim make it perfect to keep us warm during this season.
It’s called the Rumor Fur by Peuterey and you can buy it here.

Six places to welcome 2014

18 Dec

ChaletGerard_02

I have a cousin who loves Winter sports. He used to spend the first day of the year hitting the slopes in the Pyrenees. I remember that our grandpa always admired him for that. No party, no hangover. Just a nice night of sleep and a fresh start for the New Year all healthy and surrounded by nature. I find it great, don’t you? Not my thing, though ;) But for those of you who are adventurous and sporty, here you have six gorgeous places to welcome 2014 that will be perfect for you. Continue reading

When I saw this picture on Pinnterest a couple of weeks ago I almost cry. That is exactly the place I dream about in Christmas! A wooden chalet with inviting lights in the middle of the mountains. Isn’t it picture perfect?

We need this! The soft and warm furry coat

4 Dec

fur

I love furry coats but they are not made for me. I’m too small and too curvy to look good on them. But they are so sof and warm and… soft! I need one! I want one! This cute number is from Hoss Intropia and it couldn’t be lovelier. It’s a bit pricey, but the quality of this brands’ items is always outstanding. I think this could be the one for me. And as their slogan says… When the weather outside is frightful, wrap up in a coat that’s delightful! ;)

PS: this one would do the trick too…

We need this! Skirts

6 Nov

Skirts - shorts
We wear jeans and other kind of pants on a daily basis. Actually we hardly wear skirts. But the thing is that skirts are usually more flattering than pants: they can hide complicated feautures like thighs and hips or they can enhance them in a way a pant will never do. So we’ve decided to look for some skirts to make our wardrobe more interesting. Since ASOS has a huge selection, we decided to start looking there.

1. This little number has one of the prints of the season and a quilted texture that adds a nice twist to it. It’s like a cool version of a mini quilt! And we love the matchy matchy jacket!
2. Flowers again for a sweet sweet skirt. I can see myself wearing it with a black sweater, black tights and black booties. So me, I think.
3. This skirt is quite pricey but is just fantastic.

Finally!

11 Sep

Isabel_Marant_Nowles

Yes, finally! Finally a designer thinks about horrible Winter weather! Finally fashionable shoes that can face the Northern European weather! Let’s be honest here: I don’t know about you, but if I want to keep my teeth where they are and my lungs in good condition, heels, leather ballerinas or strappy sandals are out of the question in Winter. I hope the Nowles wedge boots become the next it shoe because this is the only kind of shoe we can wear in the North of Germany from November to February! Do they look like Santa Claus’ helper’s shoes? Maybe, but they look warm and hard enough for cold weather! Thank you, Isabel.
You can buy them here!
