Blush pink cashmere or Love at first sight

The last outfit post is quite some time ago, but the weather has been bad so lighting for outfit shoots hasn’t been the best. Sorry about that. But, anyways, my best friend and I had a girls weekend last week, did some shopping and I found this gem of a sweater, on sale, that I had to share with you. Finding it was actually the most random thing ever because I waited for my friend who had cued for the cashier and I was just wondering around, not really looking for anything. Until I saw the blush pink arm peaking out of a huge and messy sales clothing rack. I pretty much ran over and grabbed the arm, making sure it was what I hoped for (check my 2017 wish list) and instantly secured it under my arm after checking the size.

I don’t usually browse those sale racks, especially not when it is crowded as hell, because I just find it simply annoying to dig through stuff and then end up finding cute pieces but not finding them in the right size. The opportunity costs in terms of time vs potential savings just don’t add up. Haha, as if I was a responsible economist! So yes, I grabbed it, went to the fitting rooms, declared my “love at first sight”, my friend strongly agreed and I bought it. 39€, oh yeah! This sweater is going to be EVERYTHING for the time between September and May 2017, 2018 and following… The fabric is super soft, 100% cashmere, it has a knit texture to it, extra long sleeves, mock neck and it is blush pink.

DIY – distressed hem denim on my ZARA jeans

As previously promised: here’s my quick and easy DIY on how I gave my regular ZARA denim a bit of an upgrade on the distressed side. First things first, I’m a huge fan of distressed denim. But it usually isn’t work appropriate, unless you work in the fashion industry… which I don’t. So casual friday is my personal highlight because it always gives me the chance to kinda dress up (which means dressing down in my case!).

I really wanted a pair of jeans which were distressed at the hem (TGIF appropriate) but other than that without any holes: it’s an impossible mission. No kidding. So when I saw those ZARA jeans last week, on sale (17€/20$), my size, ankle gracer for medium-tall people (which means a less-than-ankle-gracer-lenght for me), they were the perfect fit. Because after taking out the hem, I figured, they’d be the perfect lenght for me.

Here’s how I did it:

Gold sneakers and a fedora – a saturday classic

So this is the first outfit-post! Yeah. I’m probably more excited than you are but this is a big thing for me., hat, red cup, fashion

It’s been pretty chilly these past days in Frankfurt but weather conditions shouldn’t stop anyone from being stylish. I feel like winter is always a good time to do some layering, whether it is visible or not but just so convenient when you’re store-hopping between -2C° outside and 23C° inside. Also, I pretty much put this outfit together from all-year-round favorites and not only your typical winter gear. To me, it’s important to buy a few key pieces that are my staples for every season an its specifics but also, I’m constantly on the lookout for transitional pieces which are wearable all year long and throughout many years. They are (mostly always) worth the investment. Talking about cost-per-wear will be a separate post though…

So, the fedora hat I wore is a really sentimental piece to me because I bought it in Savannah on my birthday road-trip from Atlanta, GA, to Disney, Orlando.  It’s from Club Monaco and just reminds me of the wonderful time I had during the three months I stayed in the US. Travel blog about that trip is in the making, don’t you worry!
