My Look: Do It With Passion

Yes, it is your passion that makes any work successful. If you are not passionate about anything, dont do it. It will just waste your time. Fashion makes me happy, therefore writing this blog gives me a lot of pleasure. Being in isolation due to my positive COVID-19 test, I am grateful for all the pre-shot material that I can share with you now.

Burberry’s classic heritage check is back in fashion and looking fresher than ever. When in doubt about print clashing, just go for the double check. I think it looks fabulous!

My Look: Comfy Glam

Last week, I indulged in a shopping spree at the Falconeri store in Zurich, located at Bahnhofstrasse 104 on the first floor, on top of Intimissimi. Check out today’s Instagram stories to see all the different looks. It was hard to choose. I went for this outfit because it is extremely comfortable yet stylish and glam, perfect for traveling. The color combination of dark blue, vivid green and orange is divine.

My Look: Yes Girl Yes!

Yes Girl Yes! Turquoise, light blue and red make a great colour combination. It’s almost spring and those vibrant shades announce the arrival of my favorite season. Some colours and a positive attitude will help us go through these troubled times. The coronavirus has resulted in countless changes to daily life – bars, restaurants are empty and the calls for «social distancing» to slow the spread of the virus is pretty tough on everyone. Therefore I am convinced that it is even more important to find joy in the little things and this can be a great outfit in eclectic hues. Online shopping is a safe way to get your new season pieces …

My look: Ruffle silk jumpsuiticon by Rodarte, small flap bag with top handle by CHANEL, Impatiens clip-on earrings by Oscar de la Renta, and leather platform pumps by Gucci.

My Look: Just Keep Swimming

If I say to you, just keep swimming, I am quoting a fish – a really famous fish and that is Dory from the movie Finding Nemo. If you keep swimming, you will not drown and might reach your next goal. Take action to survive, even if that is all you can do. And needless to say, do it with style!

My look: Floral-printed bikini and matching hibiscus-printed cotton hat, both by Etro, fringed plaid basketweave canvas maxi skirt by Proenza Schoulericonheart-shaped turquoise bagicon by Balenciaga, leather platform sandals, both by Saint LaurentImpatiens clip-on earrings by Oscar de la Renta and sunglasses «Reflected» by Dior.

My Look: Vacation

I love going on vacation by car as you can pack as much as you like. On the other hand, with the right hand luggage, flying can be also very convenient. For me, there is nothing quite like my new chic Lexicon Hardside Global Carry-On by Victorinox to induce that sense of wanderlust. The champagne coloured trolley is not just impossibly pretty, but also unbreakable and packed with lots of smart features. These include an interior compression system which allows you to make the most of the space inside, TSA-approved lock, built-in battery pocket for charging your USB devices, as well as premium 360° wheels for a smooth, easy roll.

My look: Appliquéd cotton-twill jumpsuit by Mira Mikati, pink satin bow hairband
