Coat: Yes or No, Dress: Zara, Boots: Dansi (all previous seasons)
I just love this dress. Although I bought it a few years back, it still is one of my favourite winter ones. It is warm, wrinkle-friendly, combines well with knee-high boots and is easy to cycle and move around in. By now you will know how much I value many of these characteristics in my outfits for school.
For a long time my husband has had a completely different view on the same dress. It reminded him of a rug (oh yeah) and therefor he really didn’t like it at all. That, of course, was something I didn’t like at all. One day, after seeing some work of Escher, inspiration hit me…..
Look at my son and me. Time really flies. You can read in my short bio on the right that I have got three fantastic teenagers. Seeing the above photos, I am sure you will understand why I feel that way. Isn’t it just great that my teenage son liked the idea of this photo shoot with his mum? I enjoy spending time with my children and very often they do too! When they were younger I told lots and lots of stories; a great way of having quality time together. Today, I will tell you an interesting story.
Dress: H&M, Boots: Dansi (Both from previous seasons)
One of the many things I love as a foreign language teacher is bringing different cultures closer to my pupils. The coming few weeks are great ones for teaching British and American culture. Next week is Halloween and in November I can choose between Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and Thanksgiving, or simply do all of them. Since Halloween is not really celebrated in Switzerland I will wear this pretty subtle halloween dress to school on the 31st of October.
Dress: H&M (previous season)
Maybe the quote in the title sounds vaguely familiar. The original one is: “The details are not the details. They make the design.” I agree with Charles Eames and I also know that details make the message.
In my blogpost The details make the difference in the end I have mentioned how much more positive your communication sounds if you add the word ‘yet’. There is another small word that has got a great impact on the message you deliver; the word ‘but’. When you become aware of the power of this small word, I am sure you might want to use it much more consciously than you are probably doing right now. How so?
Dress: H&M, Bag: H&M, Ankle boots: Stravers Shoes (previous season)
Don’t you just love this little black bag? It is small enough to fit my posture and to accompany feminine outfits, yet large enough to offer the necessary place for my essentials and cool enough to accompany leisurely outfits too. I just adore it as you can imagine.
Last April we visited Munich and to my surprise there was a beautiful English Garden in this Bavarian City. I just loved it. Imagine how thrilled I was when shortly after that trip I went to London. London is full of red busses and telephone boxes, like you can see in I spy with my little eye , but also full of green gardens and parks.
Today I’d like to take you to one of these; the white garden of Kensington Palace.
Dress: H&M (previous season, children’s department!), Cardigan: Yes or No (previous season), Sunglasses: Cerjo
Summer is in full swing here in Switzerland and I hope it is the same where you live. Some of you will enjoy a vacation during the summer months and others will enjoy a staycation. Well, happy summer days can be found everywhere. Some super simple summery suggestions:
Shirt: H&M (previous season)
I like this quote from Roger Federer. I can see how it works in sports, I like playing with it in fashion (see both photos) and I know from experience that it works in communication as well. How so?
