Mother nature must read my blog because since that scorching hot day where I complained about the heat, we have been hit with some cold summer days. I had to pull out the trench jacket and booties kind of cold. Reminiscent of fall; I will stop my complaining and apologize to enjoy a little more summer. I’ve been told summer doesn’t stay long in Switzerland and the later months will be full of rainy days. To say the least I’ve already began searching for a new pair of rain boots. Today I had planned out a cute summer look, down to the boho feel and all but when I woke and saw I was making an appearance before the sun I decided to switch the look up entirely.
These Jessica Simpson peep toe booties are the perfect transition piece they say “hey, my toes are out- so it’s warm but I’m still a boot so don’t think I can’t handle the elements”
I know thats a lot to say but shoes have a way of rambling.
My favorite piece is this leopard print Diane Von Furstenberg skirt. It was a steal from Nordstrom Rack last year. Literally, ran out of the store because I knew there had to be some sort of mistake. The most gorgeous calf skin wrap skirt. On sale 98% off from $465. I paid about $10.00. It actually sold out at Barney’s and ShopBop!!!
This look is really a mix between meets real life and high meets low. If you have a sense of fashion you can look like a million bucks in head-to-toe dollar store pieces. However, it is always important to treat yourself to a few fancy options. The classic Burberry Trench is the epitome of timeless fashion. Over the forever 21 burgundy jacket is my favorite Burberry trench which to be honest I have yet to wear in actual rain… not on purpose it’s just the first sight of rain I am ecstatic at the excuse to pull off this effortless jacket.
On another note this outfit pulls together my personal European essence; cooped up in the library working today I hopped around Old Town Zürich for lunch; it is sincerely beautiful here.
