The peacoat

I want a peacoat. I love classic basic pieces so I don’t know why I don’t own a peacoat, when it is the quintessential classic basic. I love the tomboy vibe, I love navy and I love the British Autumn vibes that it transmits. It’s casual but it can be a great addition to your working wardrobe. It’s versatile and timeless. Now I that I think about it, I don’t want it, now I think I need it! Browsing through my favorite online shops I’ve discovered a few beautiful options, if you’d like to see…

Trenchcoats

Well, this post should have been called P. needs it, I already have it. A couple of years ago I bought a beautiful Burberry trench with leather details that became immediately my favourite piece. I wear it basically everyday in Autumn. It’s one of the first things I’d save if there was a fire in my house. That’s how much I love it. Lately, we have been looking for a trench that suits P. This is our selection: 1. The classic Burberry trench, of course. It’s obviously an investment, but it’s worth every cent. It’s timeless, it enhaces every silhouette and makes you look like a million dollar. Even if you wear it with jeans and Converse. 2. This light trench could be another option. It has a minimalistic vibe that makes it really cool. The light color is really nice too. 3. P’s favourite. We saw it the other day in a store in Hamburg and it triggered the search of the perfect trench. We both know this is the one she wants, but let’s keep …

Hats

We love hats, but we almost never wear them. We told you before: we are lazy dressers. Plus I’m a bit paranoic and I’m always thinking that my hat will fly away as soon as I go out the door. Wind is always an issue here. Very convenient for sustainable energy strategies, but really annoying for fashionable ones. Anyway, since I’m determined to make an effort this season and step out of my confort zone I’ve been browsing the Internet looking for the perfect hat to dress up my Autumn looks. I will blue-tack it to my head if necessary. See? I’m determined. These are the candidates: 1. This hat reminds me of young Sissi, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. I used to love those films when I was a child. I always wanted to look like Romy Schneider. The beautiful montains in Bayern, crispy air, rosy cheeks and gorgeous little hats. Pretty expensive, though. 2. Since I’m all for monochromatic looks this season, this hat could be a key basic piece to upgrade my looks. Besides, it …

Zara Pre-Fall

This year I’m really looking forward to Autumn. I want to feel the crispy air and I want to finally master the layering techniques. That’s what Autumn is about, no? Oh, Autumn fashion… isn’t it the best? The famous layering, the colours, the textures… and this season I’m liking Zara! What? Yes! I find a little bit difficult to find nice pieces at Zara. On magazines, blogs and ads everything looks fine but then I don’t find those pieces in the shops. And if I find them, they just don’t look as… polished. Is it just me? Anyway, their Pre-fall collection rocks! Here you have some images, if you’d like to see…

Silver feet

The past weekend was amazing weather-wise. On Saturday we could visit the farmers market without our umbrellas and we even took a really long walk in the woods on Sunday morning. We know this is just an illusion of  Spring ( that will arrive… eventually), but we can’t help but dreaming about warmer nights, longer days and sipping drinks al fresco. And for that you need new shoes. Everybody knows that. This season we would love to wear metallic silver shoes. They go with absolutely everything and they add a nice sparkle even to your more casual outfits. 1. Leather pumps by Zara. These are extra uncomfortable. I’m sure about that. But they would be the perfect addition to your working wardrobe this Spring. 2, 3 & 4. JCrew  always gets it right. Even more in the shoe department. I love these three pairs. I couldn’t choose just one. Maybe number 3? 5. Cute shoes for cute dresses by Asos. I think Alexa Chung would love these. 6.  And how cool are these loafers? PS: Follow THE SLOW PACE …

Basics & classics

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 …

An ode to Zara

We moved to Bremen almost three years ago. During all this time we’ve been hoping Zara would open a shop in Bremen. Yeah, we don’t have Zara here. For two Spanish girls like us that means we live in a tiny village because cities, even towns, they have Zaras. Yes, that’s how we define the importance of a place. By the Zaras it has. Anyway, since rumor has it that we will enjoy the neverending charms of this Spanish brand really soon (and I hope this time rumors are true!) we’ve put together a selection of pieces that we can’t wait to buy when Zara finally opens its door in Bremen. As you can see, we love the masculine vs. feminine style. From the perfect pieces to achieve cool casual looks: boyfriend jeans, cozy knits, chelsea boots or light blue shirts (2.,4.,7. & 11.) to the best items to create a comfy yet serious work outfits: beautiful camel or grey total looks, tailored skirts paired with denim or stylish carrot pants (5., 6., 8., 9. …

In my suitcase: the festive clutch

Last week we started our holiday suitcase with a velvet blazer and today we are choosing a festive clutch that can be our best friend during the holiday season. Essential for parties and special dinners it can also dress up a more casual outfit. 1. This Lanvin clutch can be a great investment piece. Its print will add the best twist to the most serious attire. 2. Sweet and rock-ish. This delightful clutch would be perfect for the youngest ladies in the house. Those first Christmas parties… 3. Zara always has something for you. This baroque clutch would be the perfect way to light up a total black look. 4. A modern classic. Alexander Wang Tri-Fold texture-leather clutch which happens to be on sale. 55% off! 5. Another black clutch that can be wear as a crossbody bag too. The golden chain ornament makes it festive but not overly so. 6. We’ve already talked about this clutch on our Facebook page. Isn’t it lovely? 7. And finally, the most festive of all the clutches: a gold …

Grey

Grey is P.’s favourite colour so she’s super happy that it is so fashionable this season. Grey can be combined with lots of colours but she specially loves mixing it with navy, chocolate and, obviously, black. This season, however, it seems mandatory to pair the softest shades of grey with pastels. Well, I don’t think that is going to happen. P’s wardrobe has an interesting lack of soft colours. Well, colours in general. Maybe a touch of green and mustard, but that’s all. Anyway… grey combines perfectly with those too! 1. The basic. A fantastic cashmere sweater. This is the kind of piece you should invest some money on. 2. This lovely dress from Sandro will be a great adition to anyone’s wardrobe. You can dress it up with pumps and a pretty coat, or dress it down with flats and a biker jacket. 3. If I could, I would buy this hat. This perfect fedora will make every outfit look like a million dollar. 4. This oversize coat by Isabel Marant x H&M is …

Soon in Zara

Now that the fashion month is over, we can imagine what we will find in the high street shops next Summer. I think (and hope) that Zara will be “inspired” by the last Ferreti collection presented in Milan a couple of weeks ago. I’ve seen other gorgeous collections that I’ve loved, but I think that after a grey Winter I would be more than happy to see those white fabrics, vibrant prints and colourful flowers hanging in my closet. Don’t you think this collection is really a sitting duck for Zara’s designers? Oh, and I can see all the fashion bloggers going crazy for those cropped shirts!
