Back to Uranus, Said the Aquarius






A fairly casual outfit for those days when you don't have any big plans. This is the kind of thing I am wearing on those days where all I do is drop off my son at the kindergarten and maybe run some quick, uneventful errands. Grocery shopping, I am looking at you. Uneventful includes also getting supplies for the repair work I am doing
---

Un outfit abbastanza casual per quelle giornate dove non hai dei grandi piani. Questo è il tipo di look che indosso nelle giornate dove tutto cio che devo fare fuori casa è portare mio figlio all'asilo e magari qualche commissione non particolare. Fare la spesa, per esempio. Nel non particolare è anche incluso rifornirsi di materiali per le riparazioni che faccio.
---

Ein Outfit, dass ich doch als eher casual bezeichnen wuerde, fuer die Tage wo man keine grossen Plaene hat. Das ist dass, was ich an den Tagen anziehe, wo ich nur meinen Sohn in den Kindergarten bringe und kleinere Besorgungen erledige. Lebensmitteleinkauf, ich schaue Dich an. Unter ereignisarm laeuft aber z.B. auch Material fuer meine Reparaturarbeiten zu besorgen.

Blue and White, some Stripes and some Flowers



I wore this for an informal lunch at my in-laws today. It is still warm enough during the days to allow for bare legs and I am going to absolutely do this till the last minute.
This shirt dress you've seen before in this post. Today I've changed it up ever so slightly. Different shoes (seen also here) and a different bag (first seen here), the sleeves let down, not belted and with a very light top in a contrasting print layered below.
---

Oggi ho indossato questo per un pranzo informale dai miei suoceri. Fa ancora abbastanza caldo per permettersi di andare in giro con le gambe nude ed io ho intenzione di fare proprio questo fino all'ultimo minuto. 
Il vestito a camicia l'avete già visto in questo post. Oggi ho leggermente cambiato l'abbinamento. Scarpe diverse (viste ancora qui) e una borsa diversa (dapprima vista qui), le maniche lasciate giù, niente cintura e sotto un top leggerissimo con stampa diversa da quella dell'abito.
---

Das hatte ich heute fuer eine Einladung zum Mittagessen bei den Schwiegereltern an. Hier ist es zur Zeit tagsueber noch warm genug fuer nackte Beine und ich habe vor, dass bis zur letzten Minute auszunutzen.
Dieses Blusenkleid habt Ihr hier in diesem Post schon einmal gesehen. Heute habe ich nur ein paar kleine Aenderungen vorgenommen. Andere Schuhe (hier schon gesehen), die aber doch nicht soooo anders sind und eine andere Tasche (hier zum ersten Mal), die Aermel nicht aufgerollt, den Guertel abgemacht und darunter ein leichtes Top in kontrastierendem Muster.

PFW SS15 - Special Love to A.F. Vandevorst


Special Love




From Milan we've moved onto Paris a couple of days ago, were yet more designers are presenting their collections for Spring/Summer 2015. Here is one collection that I really liked a lot. And I mean A LOT. There's one thing I'd change so. I'd ditch the lace up boots. Fancy to look at, I am entirely too self concious (maybe exaggeratedly so) and too lazy for them.

MFW Day 5 - Top 20 Favorite Looks

The Opener


Marni

My personal favorite of that day? Marni. I would have dedicated them "Special Love", but then there would have been little left over for this post, because the rest was, in my opinion, so so. Trussardi bored me. Dolce & Gabbana idem. It was a bit different, but yet the same. Not all bad, but not really exciting either. Maybe it is just me, they did after all what they do best. And there's lots of dresses.

Fashion Find - I.N.O.X. Victorinox

I.N.O.X. - A companion for life-time




Everyone who has followed my blog and other social adventures for a while, knows that I do like to incorporate masculine elements into my outfits. And if you would have known me for a little longer, you'd know that I've been a fan of the Swiss Army Knife since early ages. A good thing to have in one's bag.

As a natural consequence, my eye would fall upon I.N.O.X. by Victorinox.
Made to last, this timeless watch was build according to the values of the Swiss Army Knife, robust, authentic and reliable in all conditions.

Jeans On the Wild Side - Funky Jungle Print

Funky Jungle





Here is another piece (or two) of thrift goodness. I found this shirt with funky animal print on a flea market for 50Cent (fiddy cent!). It is way large for me and has shoulderpads, a little detail that makes it a probability that it might actually be vintage. But really, I bought it for the print. Funky Jungle. 'Nough said.

The belt is thrifted as well. I paid 2 Euros for it. For all I know, it could even be genuine.

And the "self-distressed" (as in, they distressed themselves) jeans you already know from my "Blue Jeans, White Shirt..." post. I paired both with my knew over the top Buffalo heels, which I showed off here, because come on, you gotta strut with this shirt.
---

Qui c'è un altro esempio (o due) della bontà del risparmio. Ho trovato questa camicia con stampa animalier molto funky su un mercatino delle pulci a soli 50 centesimi (fiddy cent!). È troppo grande per me e inoltre ha dei cuscinetti sulle spalle, il che rende molto probabile il fatto che sia veramente un pezzo vintage. La verità è che l'ho presa per la fantasia. Funky Jungle. Detto tutto.

Anche la cintura l'ho comprata di seconda mano. L'ho pagata 2€. Per quello che ne so, potrebbe anche essere vera.

E i jeans "self distressed" (vuol dire, si sono rotti da soli) li conoscete già dal mio post "Blue Jeans, White Shirt...". Ho abbinato camicia e jeans con i miei nuovi sandaletti strepitosi di Buffalo che vi ho fatto vedere già qui. Perchè parliamoci chiaro, con questa camicia bisogna pavoneggiarsi.
---

Hier ist ein weiteres Beispiel (oder zwei) dafuer was man tolles beim Thriften finden kann. Diese Bluse mit dem funky Gepardenmuster habe ich fuer 50 Cent (fiddy cent!) auf dem Flohmarkt gekauft. Ist mir viel zu gross und hat ausserdem Schulterpolster, ein kleines Detail, dass einen darauf schliessen laessen koennte, dass es sich hierbei um ein sog. Vintage Stueck handelt. Egal. Ich habe das Teil wegen dem Muster gekauft. Funky Jungle. Das sagt schon alles.

Auch den Guertel habe ich aus einem Secondhand Laden. Fuer den habe ich 2€ bezahlt. Und fuer alles was ich weiss, koennte der auch echt sein.

Und die "self distressed" (das heisst, die haben sich selbst zerstoert) Jeans kennt Ihr bereits von meinem "Blue Jeans, White Shirt..." Post. Ich habe beides mit meinen extravaganten Buffalo Sandalen, die ich hier gezeigt hatte, kombiniert. Weil, reden wir mal Klartext, mit so einer Bluse muss man stolzieren.

MFW Day 4 - Top 22 Favorite Looks

The Opener



Emilio Pucci

Day 4: I liked Roberto Cavalli more then Just Cavalli. Absolutely adored Marras this time. Giorgio Armani was solid chic. Jil Sander wasn't bad but a tad boring. Pucci had a couple beautiful looks, but a bit repetitive as well. Beautiful shade of blue at Ermanno Scervino.

MFW Day 3 - Top 25 Favorite Looks

The Opener



Missoni


You know, this is unfortunate. Watching all these fashion shows made me get a little bored with my own wardrobe. So I had to get creative and invent me some new combinations and new ways to wear stuff. Or maybe I should say I've let myself be inspired. Which then makes it not unfortunate at all, don't you think?

Buttoned Up! Sheer Underneath

Not sold on Fall



Black shirt dress, printed sheer blouse, black mary jane heels || Buttoned Up! Sheer Underneath | Funky Jungle, fashion & personal style blog



The temperatures are still moderately high here, so I am not entirely sold on that fall stuff yet. Sue me. Granted in the mornings and evenings it is starting to be chilly, but during the day and especially under the sun it is still warm. Yet, temperature doesn't reach certain heights anymore (not that it did that a lot this summer anyway, but I disgress). Hence I can start to experiment with some light layering.

Here I am wearing a short sleeve (sleeveless?) dress with a transparent blouse below. Perhaps you recognize the bag and the shoes and the necklace from earlier outfits.
---

Le temperature sono ancora piuttosto alte qui, quindi non sono del tutto convinta di questa cosa dell'arrivo dell'autunno. Si, la mattina e la sera sta cominciando a fare freschino, ma durante il giorno e sopratutto sotto il sole, fa ancora caldino. Allo stesso tempo, le temperature non salgono più a certi livelli (non che sia mai successo durante quest'estate comunque, ma sto divagando). Quindi posso cominciare a fare del layering leggero.

Qui indossavo un vestito a maniche corte (o senza?) con sotto una camicia trasparente. Magari riconoscete la borsa e le scarpe e la collana dagli outfit precedenti.
---

Die Temperaturen sind noch einigermassen hoch hier, weswegen ich noch nicht so ganz von dieser Herbst Sache ueberzeugt bin. Verklagt mich. Sicher, morgens und abends wird es mittlerweile schon frisch, aber tagsueber, und vor allem in der Sonne, ist es immer noch warm. Allerdings erreichen die Temperaturen nicht mehr Hochsommerwerte (nicht dass das diesen Sommer sehr oft passiert waere, aber ich schweife ab), weswegen ich dann eben doch schon mit leichtem Layering anfangen kann.

Hier habe ich ein Kleid mit kurzen Aermeln (oder aermellos?) an und darunter trage ich eine transparente Bluse. Eventuell erkennt Ihr die Tasche und die Schuhe und die Kette von frueheren Outfits wieder.

A Dash of Red - And an Alternative.

Today I'm showing you two ways to style the same basic outfit, from day to night  or night to day, from casual chic to chic casual. With a dash or red. And then an alternative.


Day to Night, Night to Day, Casual chic, Chic casual

This is a look I wore for a night out last Sunday. We headed into town for celebrating the birthday of a friend. And since it was easy to do, I thought I'd show you how quickly this kind of outfit can be transformed by only changing the shoes and the bag.

It's a Blue Wrap - Outfit Quickie

Another Remix





Last time I wore this dress, I had promised I would show it also styled for warmer temperatures. So here we go.

This Topshop Mini Bag really forces you to consider what you absolutely "need". I remember times when, whatever the destination, I wouldn't go out of the house without this and this and that. Well tough luck when besides your phone all you manage to put in is keys, IDs, tissues and some money.

Obviously, this doesn't work for all type of excursions.
---

Quando ho indossato questo vestito l'ultima volta, ho promesso di farlo vedere anche quando le temperature sarebbero state più alte. Ed eccoci qua.

Questa borsa mini di Topshop ti fa veramente prendere in considerazione cosa ti serve davvero. Mi ricordo tempi durante i quali, quale che fosse la destinazione, non sono uscita senza questo e questo e quello. Beh, è dura se tutto quello che riesci a mettere oltre al telefono sono chiavi, carta d'identità, fazzoletti e qualche soldo.

Ovvio che poi quello non funziona per tutti i tipi di escursione.
---

Als ich dieses Kleid das letzte Mal anhatte, hatte ich versprochen es auch fuer sommerliche Temperaturen gestylt zu zeigen. Und voilà, hier ist die Sommer Version.

Diese Topshop Mini Tasche zwingt einen wirklich dazu mal zu ueberlegen was man wirklich braucht. Ich erinnere mich an eine Zeit wo ich, egal wohin, ohne dies und dies und das nicht aus dem Haus ging. Tja Pech gehabt wenn alles was neben dem Telefon in die Tasche passt die Schluessel, der Ausweiss, Taschentuecher und etwas Geld sind.

Ist auch klar, dass das eben nicht fuer alle Ausfluege gilt.

Hello Again! Black Top with Faux Leather

Back to me




Back to me for a moment. Least you'll start to miss me. But I hope you also enjoy the pictures from the runways and showrooms.

We've shot these fotos about a week ago and the terrace was half in the shadow, half in sunlight, hence the different colored pictures.

I am wearing a Mango top with faux leather inserts that I got during winter sales together with my newish Zara jeans. Yes it's the spanish battle all over again ;-)
---

Torniamo a me per un attimo. Prima di iniziare a mancarvi. Spero però che vi piaccia anche vedere le immagini delle passerelle e degli showroom.

Abbiamo scattato queste foto circa una settimana fa, la terrazza era metà al sole e metà all'ombra, ecco perché le immagini hanno colori diversi.

Indossavo un top con delle parti in similpelle che ho preso durante i saldi invernali e i miei jeans Zara quasi nuovi. Si, ripetiamo di nuovo la battaglia spagnola.
---

Und fuer einen Moment wieder zurueck zu mir. Nicht dass Ihr noch anfangt mich zu vermissen. Hoffe aber auch, dass Euch die Bilder von den Modeschauen und Showrooms gefallen.

Wir haben diese Bilder vor ungefaehr einer Woche aufgenommen und die Terrasse lag halb in der Sonne, halb im Schatten. Deswegen die verschieden farbigen Fotos.

Ich trage ein schwarzes Top mit Faux Ledereinsaetzen von Mango, dass ich im letzten Winter im Schlussverkauf erstanden habe zusammen mit meinen noch recht neuen Zara Jeans. Ja, das ist die Neuauflage der spanischen Schlacht.

Hearts, Pants and a Color Bomb

Color Bombing




I don't color block. I color bomb. Because I grew tired of "adding a pop of color" ;-)

Also, I need to cut my hair. On the back I can already make a tiny tiny ponytail.

You know this wrap blouse with hearts print. You know the pants. And certainly you do know the shoes. Some of you may have seen the bag already on Instagram.

Things are a bit off here, so for a little while you'll get even less text from me then you are used to. Sorry.
---

Io non uso il colore a blocchi. Io uso le bombe di colore. Questo anche perché mi sono stancata di "aggiungere un pizzico di colore" ;-)

Inoltre devo anche tagliare i capelli. Dietro posso già fare una piccola piccola coda.

Conoscete questa blusa con stampa a cuori. Conoscete anche i pantaloni. E certamente conoscete le scarpe. La borsa forse alcuni di voi l'hanno vista su Instagram.

Le cose vanno un po' così qui, per cui per un po' leggerete ancora meno testo da parte mia di quanto non siate abituate a leggere. Mi dispiace.
---

Ich farbblocke nicht. Ich farbbombe. Auch weil mir das "hinzufuegen von einem Touch Farbe" etwas langweilig geworden ist ;-)

Ausserdem muss ich meine Haare schneiden lassen. Am Hinterkopf kann ich schon einen winzigkleinen Pferdeschwanz machen.

Ihr kennt diese Wickelbluse mit Herzchen Muster. Ihr kennt diese Hose. Und mit Sicherheit kennt Ihr diese Schuhe. Die Tasche haben einige vielleicht schon auf Instagram gesehen

Die Dinge laufen hier zur Zeit etwas aus der Reihe, und als Konsequenz werdet Ihr in den kommenden Tagen noch weniger Text als gewohnt lesen. 'Tschuldigung.
