My Look: Comfy Flying

Comfy Flying Sandra Bauknecht

I love to make my flights as comfortable as possible and as I am frequently traveling around the world, I have some favorites to wear. This season it is definitely my Chanel backpack that even holds my laptop and the phone holder. They are stylish yet very practical and give you the opportunity to have your hands free.

My Look: Printed T-shirt by Ralph Lauren Black Labelmid-rise skinny jeansicon by Dolce & Gabbana, graffiti backpack, metallic patent phone holder and matching booties, all by Chanel, Limelight Gala watch, diamond rose ring and necklace, all by Piaget and Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès.

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

Get the Look: Candy Colours


Thank you for all your sweet comments on my outfit that I wore to the Stella McCartney F/W 2011 show. Candy colours are just great for summer, they feel fresh and light.

The linen blazer and pants are by Stella McCartney as well as the gorgeous Falabella crochet bag and the python-print scarf. I combined the look with nude sandals by Prada and a cardigan by Ralph Lauren Black Label. The taupe-coloured headpiece by Miu Miu is definitely an eyecatcher. I have even made it on the French Vogue website.

Firenze4Ever – Outfit Day 1

I arrived in my beautiful embellished silk blouse and the little camel coloured mini skirt, both by Chloé F/W 2010, combined with a shearling waistcoat by Ralph Lauren Black Label and a fur jacket by Prada, both from previous seasons. During the flight, I had perfered staying comfy in my flat suede Louis Vuitton boots from the Cruise 2011 collection. To protect my hair (it is raining in Florence), I put on one of my favourite hats by Balenciaga. Carine Roitfeld loves this one, too as you can see below (Photos: The Sartorialist).

In the evening, I just changed from my honey-coloured „Twenties“ micro-fishnet tights into my new „Rebecca“ tulle-look net tights with small dots, both by Wolford, and finished off my look with my green punk platform pumps by Yves Saint Laurent and my killer clutch by Balmain. Jewelry by Chanel.

I packed 30kg for the weekend. For fashionable days like that, you better be prepared!
