Any blog I’ve visited lately leaves the impression that all people seem to want to wear is black. I’ve come across many black outfits and I can’t get the all-black-look out of my mind. It’s spring and the silhouettes create a nice contrast with the light skies. I especially like black combinations worn with high heels and, to add extra-dramatic-effect, a Saint Laurent-ish wide rim hat. Above are my favorite picks of street style shots.  Check out some more black inspiration on my Pinterest site!

When thinking of trench coats, I ultimately think BURBERRY. They’re the mother of the trench – their creator, and I do own one. So why did I buy yet another one from Zara? (This is my third one, I have another single breasted one from Zara as well.)
Well, let me explain… What’s particular about the one I’m wearing is its flowy material. No matter how I move the coat swings nicely, the fabric falls softly, the cut follows my body movement. And those are very feminine attributes to a coat! So that’s what made it my new go-to basic this spring; it works with literally everything.

After our international move, we had to sell some of our furniture, as the pieces just wouldn’t work in our new place. Of course I was excited about going shopping, but what kills the joy of decoration in Switzerland is that almost everything is made to order and takes forever to arrive. Alas, we still don’t have living room chairs or a couch table. I can’t wait for a coordinated home, however, have to put up with decor inspiration for another while…
