Isabel Marant Sneakers

To be honest, I haven't set my mind yet on whether I like the IM-Wedges Sneakers or not...
Recently I saw them worn by some super stylish Yummy-Mummy and I must admit, she looked gorgeous in them... and thinking of the comfort zone, they are definitly a YES, especially if you're around kids. But I must also tell you, that this specific Yummy-Mummy is very tall and super skinny, so the sneakers didn't look to heavy on her.
And that is the main point I guess... these shoes only work on tall, rather skinny women that aren't wearing anything too baggy...otherwise I think they'd look like little elefant feet.. ;-) Don't you agree?





If you feel like getting them, here is where you can shop online: here or here or here.

Have fun...

Heavy balloon

I adore Jeff Koons creations that are now visible at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen BS, Switzerland. 

Here a little array of his art work. Some of the pieces look so light, breezy, play- and colorful... just fabulous!






It is really worth to visit the exhibition!

A dress, a wedding and a fever...

After spending some fantastic days in beautiful Puglia, Italy with my family, attending a romantic wedding in an extraordinary setting and indulging in delicious Italian food, we're back to Switzerland and still awaiting the real Swiss summer... :-(

As I told you on my earlier post (click here: THE dress) I've found online a true fashion find as my outfit for the wedding.
Unfortunately my son had a huge fever on the wedding event, so my husband and I were only able to attend the wedding alternately. I wasn't able to take pictures of the wedding and for now I don't have a picture of myself in my beloved dress, but you can find here the link of where I bought  my dress.
I hope you love it as much as I do! I combined it with my nude patent Louboutins and to add a little sparkle I teamed my outfit with a sequined clutch by Zara.





Nevertheless I want to show you some more impressions of the beautiful location at where the wedding was taking place:

Happy summer to everyone!

Flower power

Every spring time I am overjoyed by seeing all the blossoming flowers in the fields and shelves at the florist shops with all the wonderful flower arrangements.

Find here some of my favorite flowers:

Tulips

Anemone

Hydrangea

Roses

Calla lilies

Peonies

I love walking by a field of corn on a breezy summer evening, where you can see every here and there a little red poppy seed that is moved softly by the wind... pure nature in my opinion.
Poppy seeds

What are your favorite flowers?
