Holiday ensemble: cobalt blue against leather pants






leather patns: New York Company, Top: Sheinside; Necklace: Zara; Heels; Zara, Ring: Orsay

In the last two years my obsession with leather pants grew. They are such versatile clothing items that can be dressed up and down and you just always look so pulled together. When I dont know what to wear I grab a pair of faux leather pants and pair them with a basic shirt and a blazer and I am good to go. I had this super flirty and unique peplum top in my closet for a couple of years now  and I am so impressed with the design and rich color.. With the embellished beading through the statement necklace it makes such a great holiday ensemble.

I am not sure how regular I will be blogging the next 4 weeks as I am visiting my sweetheart and will be heading to the states in 2 days- YEAH, I couldn't be more excited. Have a fabolous with your loved ones <3

Houndstooth Dress 3 ways

Outfit 1: Mangenta Blazer: Forever 21; Dress: H&M; Heels: Jessica Simpson via ShoeDazzle; Statement Necklace: Zara; Clutch: Hugo Boss
Outfit 2: Jacket: Orsay; Heels: Nine West; Bag: Chanel
Outfit 3: Fur Vest: TjMaxx; Gloves: Görtz; Boots: Zara; Scarf: C&A

















A houndstooth dress is such a classic piece that can be styled in various ways and a simple change of accessoires and a jacket can change its appearance. One of my goals this year was to shop as little as possible because I have clothes for the rest of my life really. I made this new purchased dress my center piece and reshopped the rest to make it look differently.

The first Ensemble is a great look that can be worn in the office or even to a christmas party. The mangenta adds a flash of color to the black and white monochromatic look. I had this blazer for years and its really an all year arounder. I was at first a little bit sceptical to wear tights with opentoe heels but at the end I loved the result. I just don't want to put those beauties to winter sleep yet.

The second look reflects a typical monochrome look. The motojacket gives the elegant dress a more edgy touch and looses the "strictness" a litt bit up. The jacket and nice detailed boots are closet staples for years now.

Option 3 is a typical winter edition. The fur vest, the knee boots and leather gloves transform this dressto a modern and elegant winter ensemble. Itsn't great how just a simple red scarf and some lipstick can change the occurence?

Have  a happy second Advent y'all! Only 9 days till I see my love in the states, super excited <3
