My Look: Chanel Airlines

Sandra_Bauknecht_CHanel_Airplane

«The bad news is time flies. The good news is you are the pilot! Your wings already exist, you just have to start to fly.»

I love flying (literally in all ways, sometimes it is good to get my feet back on the ground). When I was a little girl, I hung a world map in my room and put little needles in the locations I had visited. This poster is still in my parent’s house and whenever I come back home, I add the new ones. I have seen many countries, visited all five continents as travelling has been my other big passion besides fashion, but ones you see the magnitude of our planet, you realize how small you are and even if you think that you have seen so much, you have not seen a lot! Speaking off which, bye bye Switzerland! Off I go… comfy but in style!

My look: Cashmere sweater, cashmere top, matching pants, sneakers, backpack, circle messenger bag and airplane brooch, all from Chanel‘s flight-themed «Chanel Airlines» S/S 2016 collection.

LoL, Sandra

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

St.Patrick'sDay

To all my Irish readers, Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2012!

When I lived in Chicago, one of my favourite days during the year was the 17th of March when the Chicago River was dyed green for this special occasion (see tiny photo to the left). It is a 50-year tradition in the American city where many Irish are living.

Did you know? It’s said that blue was originally the colour associated with the holiday but over time green took over in popularity due to Ireland’s nickname as “The Emerald Isle”, the green in the Irish flag and the clover that St. Patrick used in his teachings about Catholicism.
Thank God, it was changed to green as blue would have been such an ordinary colour for the Chicago river.

During my last trip to Ireland, it was raining pretty much all the time. This inspired me to style this fashionable outfit for the more humid days:

Star-print rain coat by Miu Miu, cable-knit cashmere sweater by Ralph Lauren Black Label, high-waisted cotton-canvas skirt by See by Chloé, 1970 small leather shoulder bag by Gucci and Wellington boots by Hunter.

LoL, Sandra
