CHRISTMAS: individualized advent calendar - my schoko world.

[en] ADVERTISEMENT - christmas is just around the corner (i'm already counting the days ...) and one of my favourite christmas traditions since my early childhood days is the obligatory advent calendar, filled with delicious chocolates and pralinés.

my schoko world offers you the possibility to create your very own advent calendar, personalized with your own photographs and filled with belgian milk chocolate.
i tested the service and today i want to show you the result.

i created a special strangeness and charms advent calendar featuring my personal shooting favourites from the past few years. it is very easy to create your own design - you can simply upload your favourite photos onto the website and do not need to download an external software.

i really like the outcome! what do you think of it?
as a special goodie you can win the advent calendar shown in todays post!

OUTFIT: white ruffle blouse, destroyed jeans & floral wedges.

[en] hi peeps! i love to wear floral prints all year and not only in the spring and summer season. todays outfit is one of my favourite 'uniforms' this fall season. i instantly feel comfortable in my glamorous white ruffle blouse and the light blue destroyed jeans. of course a sophisticated pop of colour is inevitable in most of my outfits and this time i chose a pair of floral print wedges. the best: they are super comfy!

SHOPPING: my current fashion favourites from zaful.


[en] ADVERTISEMENT - hi peeps! you might already have noticed that i'm a fan of the online store zaful. i have already published several posts featuring products which i have bought there. for example you might remember my post about my blue velvet maxi dress which i combined with my monochrome graphic print blazer, high heels and my patent leather bag from calvin klein. the dress was from zaful, as well as my red cat eye sunnies, my beloved golden khaleesi bracelet and my golden armcuff which was featured in several outfit and shooting posts.

today i want to show you my recent picks from the online shop.

there's always such a vast quantity of amazing pieces online so that it's quite hard for me not to buy too many things! thus today I want to help you guys to decide on what to buy in the shop.

i really love the nude sweater with flower applications, the black sweater with the pearl applications and the striped wrap blouse. i thought about combining the latter with one of the stripey pants i also linked in todays post – what do you think?

and this gold-coloured biker jacket is ah-ma-zing, isn't it? such a statement piece! but i'm also very much in love with the patent leather shoes with wing applications, the embroidered black velvet mules and the fake fur ones – not to mention all the beautiful dress and bag creations and all this statement jewellery. well i can tell for sure that my wallet is looking forward to this shopping galore XD

have you already known zaful and have you already ordered something there – if yes, were you satisfied with your order?

OUTFIT: a walk in baden-baden.

[en] baden-baden is perfect for long walks - for example along the lichtentaler allee with the gönneranlage and its rose garden and the beautiful dahlia garden. and the city doesn't lose its charm, even when it rains.

but baden-baden offers a whole lot more to see, for example the kurhaus with its extensive gardens and the theatre and trinkhalle, which are stunning examples of classicistic architecture.

on these warm and sunny autumn days i love to wear my blush coloured and ruffled dorothy perkins blouse and my light blue destroyed jeans.

have you ever been to baden-baden?

SHOOTING: sports apparel from & H&M in the black forest.

[en] ADVERTISEMENT - hi peeps! the depicted natural gem is only 20 minutes away from my flat. it's a beauty spot which lets me get away from it all for a little while.
it's perfect for a little walk but also to collect mushrooms and chestnuts in fall and wood garlic in spring.

the area shown on the photographs in todays post belongs to the hunting lodge forest and is located between baden-baden and sinzheim.

i really feel privileged to live near an UNESCO biosphere reserve – not least because i live in a region where others take a staycation.

do you live nearby a national park or a natural beauty spot which helps you to take some time out?

SHOOTING: the perfect horse racing look - black broad-brimmed occasion hat & white cocktail dress.

[en] baden-baden can be regarded as the german horse racing metropolis and also in matters of pomp and circumstance it would in no way be inferior to the prestigious couterpart in ascot.
it is needless to say that this social event which peaks within the grand final week at the beginning of september is celebrated in the best way possible. highly rewarded horses and jockeys as well as haute couture hat creations worn by beautiful ladies are in the centre of attention.

many ladies shop their flamboyant hat couture at olivier maugé's flagship store in baden-baden.

it is very likely that i will wear today's outfit at the sales & racing festival which will take place during the 20th and the 22nd of october 2017.

my mum bequeathed me with the broad-brimmed hat i'm wearing in today's post. isn't it a true black beauty? i'm especially in love with the hatband and the decorative ribbon detail made of rich, silky-matt velvet – one of my favourite fabrics!

the white cocktail dress literally was a perfect catch. i have bought it second hand via – one of my favourite fashion destinations when it comes to sustainable shopping. i especially love the modern interpretation of its halter-neck detail.
i wanted the shoes to be puristic and not too garish and thus combined my black & white combo with a pair of nude coloured high heels.

nevertheless a bright and colourful colour splash oughtn'd be missing and thus i combined my outfit with a red bag in shape of a book.

the races in 2018 are likely to take place in mai, august/september and october.

what do you think about my horse racing look?
