Warm white winter wear

Trousers/Top/Cardigan (new): H&M

Winter is coming and I am so ready for it! Till we have got lots of snow, I simply create my own winter whites. This super cosy, fluffy and soft cardigan is a recent buy (children’s department, so not only a small size, also a small price). Remember my neutral 1st of August outfit? This is my neutral winter version, perfect for the 1st of December!

Striped blazer

Blazer (new): H&M, Blouse: Pepe Jeans, Shoes: Piure, Jeans: H&M

As a teacher I do wear more cardigans than blazers. Why? Well, they are easier to wash, I can throw them nonchalantly over my chair when it is warm in my classroom and they are often very wrinkle-friendly.

That said, there is always this exception to the rule, so meet my striped blazer.

Pretty in purple

Dress and Cardigan: Street One (very many seasons ago) 

In the autumn break we visited this gorgeous castle, Burg Eltz, in Germany. As the colour purple has been associated with royalty, power and wealth for centuries, I thought this dress and purple cardigan perfect for the occasion.

A warm yellow cardigan to adjust to autumn

Cardigan: Vögele (children’s department), Jeans & Top: H&M (all previous seasons)

When walking around town these past few weeks, the warm shades of yellow wink at me from nearly every shop window. I just love it, since the weather is slowly turning less warm and I find it hard to say goodbye to that gorgeous summer we have had this year. Seeing so much yellow keeps that warm feeling alive a little bit longer. That’s also why my old warm yellow cardigan is back into my wardrobe; so I can grab it whenever I am in need of some sunny warmth.

Awesome animal print skirt to transition from summer to autumn

Skirt: H&M, Top: Yes or No (both previous seasons)

What a summer this has been. Actually, it’s still going on, though mixed with just a bit of rain now and then. Last week we had temperatures of around 25° in Switzerland! Despite these temperatures, autumn is definitely on its way. You can feel it in the air, the first leaves have turned yellow, the days get shorter and the shop windows are displaying all kind of warm colours and fabrics. Somehow it makes the choice for your outfits a different one than on a warm summer day in the middle of August.

To tackle this challenge I have got an awesome animal print skirt. It is light as a feather, so perfect to deal with the warmth. Combined with black or brown it feels fit for autumn too.

7 tips for comfortable and classy outfits with the right shoes

Avoid “Shoepidity”  and choose your shoes for more than just looking great!

Are you familiar with the term  “Shoepidity”? It is something that I avoid as a teacher. “Shoepidity” is  the act of wearing ridiculously uncomfortable shoes just because they look good.

As a teacher comfort is your number 1 rule for your outfits and certainly for your shoes. That said, it doesn’t have to stop there. You can easily add some classy elements to your outfits, so you are still comfortable while looking stylish too! I am sure this is something that appeals to every woman.

This blogpost is all about comfortable shoes (so welcome in the classroom, the shop, the hospital, for running errants, for exploring cities…) and how to make them work for your outfits!

Burgundy or white? Why choose if you can have both!

Trousers: Tally Weijl, Blouse: KY création, Bag: Maddison (previous seasons)

Let me start by saying that I am talking about outfits here and not wine, although burgundy is a famous wine region of course. Burgundy is also this lovely rich, warm colour, associated with wine (hence the name), autumn and winter. I think it’s a shame to leave my burgundy trousers in my wardrobe half the year, especially since they are comfortable and classy in one. By adding lots of white they can be easily styled summery too. Have a look at my three burgundy/white summer & spring outfits.
