Spring Uniform

Let´s start energetically into a new month! 
It is March, what means, Spring isn´t that far away. I can´t wait wearing my Spring uniform soon,
which consists of a perfect fitted black skinny jeans, an oversized fitted striped shirt,
not forgetting a light trench coat, some comfy ballerinas, a medium sized leather bag,
big sunnies and last but not least a touch of my favourite foundation.
Sometimes it can be that easy!

Hermès - Ultramarine Spring/Summer 2015

This video fuels my deepest longing for summer time, 
spending a Sunday like this on the beach rather  than on my sofa.
The creators of this nice little film found the most suiting words 
for the just seen minutes and made my day a little nicer.

´At the water´s edge - the glare of sun, a flash of colour, footsteps on the sand, languour. Summer.´

NYFW: Joseph Autumn/Winter 2015

pictures via www.style.com

It´s all about the neutrals next Autumn/Winter when it comes to Joseph.
Neutrals in the guise of cocooning designs in a variety of grey, beige, greige and brown shades. 
Creative director Louise Trotter set a big focus on layers and generous silhouettes made from woolen fabrics.
All in all a really harmonious collection with recurring stylistic elements and punctuated with some airy silk dresses.
I´m absolutely in love with this monochrome colour palette, which is anything but not dreary.

Home inspiration: Linen sheets

I can´t imagine something better than cuddling up in fresh linen sheets. Can´t you?
And because it´s Spring time I thought it would be a good idea for fresh new Spring colours.
You can find a big selection of linen sheets in every imaginable colour on www.merci-merci.com.
I can´t even decide for one colour...

Julia Stegner for Vogue Australia

Never let it be said that fashion series are just superficial and cannot be touching.
This series photographed by Benny Horne for Vogue Australia featuring
beautiful Julia Stegner proves the opposite, in my view.
Every picture looks really natural and genuine like she is posing for a close friend.
Stylist Christine Centenera has chosen amazing 70´s inspired pieces for a feminine retro look.
This story really touches my heart and is already now my favourite of the season.

Derek Lam Beauty Look A/W 15/16

picture via www.vogue.com

´Derek Lam wanted a smooth and natural look for this season`, Make-up Artist Tom Pecheux explains.
Therefore he decided to go for nude lips and matt grey eye shadow to create this look. 
On Vogue.de he explains how to find the right nude shade for your lips!
I really like this natural shiny look with matt highlights and the rather unconventional eye shadow colour,
which fits really good to the soft nude of the lips.
I´ve never tried grey eye shadow before but this look proofs that it can work really well!

NYFW: Victoria Beckham Autumn/Winter 2015

pictures via www.style.com

Midnight blue is my personal favourite colour for Autumn/Winter time. Victoria Beckham
obviously shares this view and showed a lot of dark blue coloured looks for the upcoming season.
These two looks above are my highlights of the collection and
signifying perfectly her Autumn/Winter collection in my opinion. 
The sleeveless straight dress has this super nice big buttons on the top and a bit of a standing collar,
which makes this dress in combination with this beige/brown boots to a perfect Autumn look.
On the other side we have a combination, which is not only to be seen at Victoria Beckham
but also in a lot of other A/W collections.
I´m talking about a straight maxi skirt and a heavy knit whether worn with a turtleneck or not.
Both looks are really suitable for a daily use in my view as most of the other looks as well.
Victoria Beckham knows how to dress self confident working women who prefer timeless but modern designs!
