INSPIRATION. Gift trouble help part two, this time the male version. I did my best to think like a man during the selection (I was even wearing my best flannel shirt. That’s the truth!). But it was still not that easy… Do you have any more ideas?
OUTFIT. As of bad weather circumstances, today’s outfit post had to be taken inside. I don’t think that anybody minds, but I felt that I needed to explain the unusual setting. Sooo, the outfit: animal prints – they can be quite tricky, because they are somewhat connected to Peggy Bundy’s taste (at least in my head). What do I usually do in such situations? Wear it with something that’s not so much Al’s wife. Like this Canadian tuxedo
cardigan: C&A – shirt: C&A – jeans: H&M – boots: Zara – necklace: Six
INSPIRATION. Christmas is coming. You’ve already noticed that from the sweets in the supermarket, the decorations in the streets and the warm-hearted smiles on people’s faces (okay, that last one might be a lie…).
Everything could be fine, if there wasn’t this gift problem that keeps on returning every year. Lucky for you, I’ve done some research on what could make a nice present for your best friend, sister, mother, girlfriend or whoever you feel should get a gift.
Do you have other ideas? What are you giving this Christmas?
OUTFIT. I’m always having trouble with finding a top for those lace shorts that doesn’t give them a “Oh hey, look: I’m in my pajamas today…”-vibe. So I felt that this rough checked shirt would add a nice contrast. I was also sporting a hat that day. Remember when I pledged to wear hats more often? I admit: It’s not going that well unfortunately But I will wear one tomorrow, I swear
shirt: H&M (men’s dept.) – lace shorts: Zara – boots: Zara – hat: H&M
FOOD. I like a good burger but since I rarely eat meat anymore, I’m trying some variations on them. This one is my last experiment with fried egg, courgette and a pea-spread. It’s seriously worth trying
OUTFIT. When I looked at these pictures, I realized that it might be time for a little beach holiday again, because, let’s face it, it seems like I didn’t see the sun for ages. Luckily, I decided to wear this chunky necklace for some distraction.
INSPIRATION. I admit: I’m a quote-freak. Whenever I find a few wise words that seem to unravel the entanglements of life, I feel obliged to pin them/write them down/put them on a lamp shade. Because – who knows – I might need a good quote one day If you feel like this too, you should definitely take a look at my quote canvas DIY.
Outfit. One of the things I have learned during my comparatively short career as a fashion journalist: It is very hard to photograph black garments. That’s no real surprise, sure, but I reminded it while I was trying all possible settings on my camera to get at least one shot that shows how this dress looks in reality. It didn’t work out that well, but I guess you get the point…
So, I wore this outfit for an evening event from work and I thought it would be nice to add a twist to the classic LBD-and-heels-combo by sporting my red boots. Did it work?
dress: H&M – boots: Mexx – earrings (customized): Six – clutch: Six – bracelet: H&M
INSPIRATION. Snuggle up on your sofa, go out for a walk or do some pre-christmas shopping – whatever you choose for, make sure you have the right tune to go along with it. You can find some inspiration on my autumn playlist below

OUTFIT. Got this coat from a sample sale at work for the marvellous price of 1 Euro. Who am I to say no to that (Yep, the retired student in me is speaking )? Unfortunately someone had destroyed the belt so I borrowed the one of my leather jacket. I really don’t mind the “stylistic inconsistency” it adds because hey, what’s matching in life anyway?
coat: Unknown – pants: H&M – shoes: Zara – clutch: Six – belt: borrowed from my leather jacket
