Comfort Zone

Are you familiar with these days when you come home from a day of constant stress at work or school/university, mixed with really bad weather? On days like that I really seek home and comfort in the form of relaxing, casual clothing. 

1. A really comfortable looking knit top with a nice u-neck cut from MITOSHOP for $65.
2. Mustard colored tank-top from KENZI for $16.80.
3. Skinny jeans from ABOKI for $75.
4. Chunky knit socks from KENZI for $13.50.

This outfit isn't necessarily home wear - it's just comfortable and cozy, with a pop of color and style. You can combine it with bulky leather boots and a khaki parka to hop off into the bustling outdoors or just leave it as it is and stay indoors.

Still alive

Hey guys,

sorry for the long hiatus once again. I somehow lost my inspiration along the way. University has also been a little stressfull. But I hope you've been doing well.

Anyway, I'm planning on publishing posts again on a more irregular basis. I think that should work just fine with my university/private life schedules.

See you soon!

Harmonious embroidery

I've got some serious learning going on over here ... and as much as I'd like to post more frequently I just have to stick to my stringent schedule now and bear with it until exams are over. I haven't done a look-a-like in ages and definitely will make one ones the pressure from learning has worn off.

So let's take a look at the special piece I've got you for today.
What looks like a pretty common stroke pattern in white from afar turns out to be an elaborate sinfonia embroidered on these classy shorts. Doesn't this grant your whole outfit a lot more personality? I think this is a beautiful way of showing off your class and sense of detail. Yet it's subtle enough to be only perceived after a second glance. The cut of the shorts harmonizes with its pattern - elegant and classy. Combine it with equally elegant pieces like shirts or polo-shirts and slippers or boat shoes.

The price is $72 (from TOKIO, get it here) and it comes in the mint green color as seen above, gray, charcoal gray, beige and sky blue.

Terry top

Fashion can help you express your sense of style, it can be elegant, low key and quiet, but also experimental, loud and daring. Now this is some little curio that rather belongs to the second group: a so-called "terry top".

Yes, it really does look very airy and loose. Perfect for an afternoon at the beach. But wait, there's more to it ...

You can actually transform into a beach towel! So convenient! And with that little slogan you also proof your sociability.

It's from ABOKI and costs $55. Get it on yesstyle.

Strawberries & cream

It's a classic dessert for early summer days: strawberries with whipped cream. The warm red of the strawberries and the soft white of the cream harmonize so well, so why not basing an outfit off of that picture?

1. Cardigan, $45 (yesstyle)
2. T-shirt, $35 (yesstyle)
3. Check shorts, $45 (yesstyle)
4. Slippers, $87 (asos)

1. Polo shirt, $38 (yesstyle)
2. Belted shorts, $48 (yesstyle)
3. Plimsolls, $26 (asos)

1. T-shirt, $50 (yesstyle)
2. Cropped pants, $48 (yesstyle)
3. Slippers, $90 (asos)

Now how about welcoming summer with a nice dessert? Red and cream/white go along so well. If red is too daring for you, though, replace it with blue and go for a more maritime look.

A peacocc at rest

Hello guys,

sorry for just another hiatus again! I have been sick over a couple of weeks. Not seriously, but enough to keep me from updating my blog.

Now with exams within eyeshot I will continue posting irregularly until late july. But I'll try to post at least 2 blog posts a week. I hope you're okay with that! So please keep dropping in!

Airy knits

I really like knits. They guarantee a good circulation of air and keep you warm. Depending on the material and texture, the focus may be on either of the two. For spring and summer knits, it usually is the former. So in order to achieve this, these garments are wide-meshed and are very light.

This knit top from STYLE ENGINE comes in 4 colors. Due to its coarse meshing, you wanna combine it with a tank top in order to make it opaque, but that's not a must.

No easy choice here, right? I like all of these colors. While the pink one is rather dreamy, the green one gives off a lot of energy.

The price is $34.20 and you can get it from yesstyle.
