FURRY HAT AND VOGUE MAGAZINE

pictures by Rebecca from itscohen

VOGUE Hello hello! I was really annoyed when I found out that Vogue forgot about my subscription this month. I got it from my sisters as a gift for my 20th birthday and was really excited to always getting the latest Vogue issues sent to my apartment - really casual and cool you know. Not having to rush to the next shop and getting it on the first day (as if I had done that ..... oh well ;-) ) It took us quite a while to make this subscription thing work that's why my first issue should arrive in November. On the 13th. Somehow they totally forgot about me and didn't send me the magazine until this week. I was a bit annoyed but as soon as I held it in my arms I was happy again. It's a really nice issue this time, festive and christmas-y with lots of good inspiration for the holiday season!

I wore this outfit this week at work and lovely Rebecca who just started working with us at Stylight took the pictures - thanks girl! I wore green skinny jeans, a lovely black jacket which was on sale at Zara's (go get it!) and my beloved (fake) furry hat. It's a really simple outfit as always but the shoes and the hat really nail it! Plus adding my diva lipstick from MAC was such a good decision, I really love this outfit and could imagine wearing it all the time! Oh and I didn't tell you yet, I will grow my bangs / fringe as I am getting bored of it and I already have it for six months now - sooo, let's get back to my beloved good old middle part (or side part)!
Actually I wanted to ask you for advice what to wear for tomorrow's christmas party with the Stylight guys, but I got sick so I will just stay at home and drink tea all the time. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow so my weekend will not only consist of tea, bed and breakfast at tiffany's to cheer me up! 

See ya! xx

GREEN TONES IN BERLIN

pictures by the boy
UNDERGROUND CAR PARK I could not think of any good title for this post - I really wanted to give it a name that has something to do with underground because we did the pictures in an underground car park but I already called one post "underground". So I sat in front of my computer thinking about this, hours for hours, seriously, there's nothing more important than the name of my blog post ;-) But anyway, it's called green tones in berlin now and I can tell you a little story. As I told you in my previous post, the boy always surprises me with the area where we shoot the pictures. On Saturday before I threw on those clothes he asked me what colors I would wear today, and I was like .. green .. a green coat. And I could see in his face that he was thinking about a nice place with green spots to take the perfect pictures ;-) Yep and he found it! We started taking pictures but then this janitor came by and told us we were not allowed to shoot in his underground car park :-D I thought it was a joke, seriously, I looked like a nice girl who won't make any mess and I just needed five good shots , but nope. He told us to leave so we could only use the three pictures we did before he came because both of us were really happy with the background and we didn't want to search for something new .. :-D I still can't believe it, I thought in a city like Berlin no one would ever be annoyed when taking pictures somewhere .. turns out I was wrong.

But we managed to get a few good shots! I wore my lovely green coat from Asos which I absolutely love, but sadly it's a light coat so I can't really wear it in deep winter time. I wanted to have a classy and chic outfit, that's why I wore a simple black skirt and a white turtleneck pullover and put my hair up! (by the way, it really looks blonde again in those pictures, am I right?) To top it I wore my brand new Peperosa cut out boots which I got from the Parade Deutschland! I just loooove these boots and I always wanted cut out boots so bad :-) You will see me wearing these lovlies a lot this season since they are the perfect boots for everyday wear - not too high and absolutely comfy!

PROST Y'ALL

pictures by the boy
GOOD MORNING! I wanted to post this outfit yesterday evening but I came home late from my trip to Berlin and I was really tired and hungry, you know ;-) But it's a new week and I am starting with a new post! Tiny lackofcolor blog teamed up with coutie.de, a german online shop with really cool clothes! It was such a hard decision what to get but I am really happy with my cheap monday tank top and the "prost y'all" beanie :-) I've seen the cap version of this beanie before and I was so unsure about whether to get the cap or the beanie, but in the end, I'm still a beanie girl! ("Prost" is the german word for "cheers" by the way, hehe ) The tank top is really perfect for every kind of season - I am yet excited to style it in summer time as I think it has this perfect oversized cut for wearing some nice bra or bikini underneath ;-) They also have the coolest pullovers and sweaters I've ever seen before, but go check yourself :-)

I combined my new goodies with my selfmade blue coat and simple jeans and boots by Zara. It was a casual but cool outfit, perfect for walking through Berlin city! To add a bit of glamour I wore read lipstick and straightened my hair ;-) You can also see that it's lighter again, it might be blond again at christmas time I think - yay! Unfortunately this might be the last time I wore my super awesome selfmade blue coat as it's made out of a light cloth and it's almost too cold outside to wear it ... I guess I have to admit that it's now time to bring out the fake fur and my quilted jacket .. oh my. But anyway, I absolutely love this outfit and I love the pictures the boy took - he always surprises me when finding a nice area to shoot because most of the time it matches my outfit perfectly ;-) 
have a great day! xx

BABY BLUE

pictures by shewearsfashion.com

BRING OUT YOUR FAKE FUR It really got cold in the last few days / weeks, so it's time to bring out the fake fur jackets - yay!! I got this one in January at Mango Sale and I am so happy to have it, as it's really really warm and looks so good with skinny jeans! As a blue lover, I played with baby blue this time, to make it at least a bit different to my usual blue looks ;-) You might have seen this beanie already on instagram, I got it together with a baby pink one because I really think a nice beanie can add so much to a simple look + I just love beanies! This look is really easy, I just wore a grey tank top, blue jeans and black boots where the jacket is the eyecatcher! At the moment the weather is perfect for it, when it's real deep winter it might get too cold to even wear the fake fur .. that's when I get frustrated wearing my quilted jacket day after day .. but that's another story :)

So as you might know, I'm in Berlin right now, and I was at university today - whoop! When I was sitting in this class room with all the others I got really excited and totally wanted to study again. I never really believed it when somebody told me that when you work, you really want to go back to school / uni and study again as it's refreshing and kind of keeps you alive to study everytime, just praciting your brain. But now I know how it feels and I am really looking forward to study again :-) So far Berlin is nice as always, just being with my love and having some quality time together; we might shoot some outfits this weekend as well - not sure yet, but stay tuned, there are some projects coming and I am really excited to share this with you!!
have a great thursday evening guys!! xx from Berlin

CAP COOLIN'

pictures by shewearsfashion.com

"HOLIDAYS" I was so excited to share with you those pictures because my outfit is a bit different to what I usually wear. This time I played with a cap! I've seen this cap at Zara's a few weeks ago and I loved caps when I was about ten, you know, young girl trying to be cool (or whatever, haha). So I tried it on in the shop and I really wasn't sure about it. I loved the zips and the fake leather style, but caps, oh my, this was newland for me. But I bought it because after standing 10 minutes in front of the mirror I fell in love. I combined it really casual cool with my 1993 shirt, a white oversized blazer, dark grey jeans and black boots. To add even more coolness to the whole look I wore my selfmade jacket which I made in my second year of high school. I wore it once in the last 6 years because I have never really liked it too much but when I wore the cap I immediately thought of it. And after a while I really liked it and now I'm wearing it almost every second day as it's suuuper comfy and warm!

So tomorrow I'm going to Berlin to see the boy and I am also going to do a student for one day-day at this university I will probably apply for. Excited! I am so looking forward to be back in Berlin as I kind of miss not just the boy but also the city. It's crazy how I fell in love with it. I am super happy to have a few days off of work because I am starting to miss my free time which I had looads of when I was studying at uni. When I was at school I left the house in the morning and came back in the evening without much time left and I promised myself that I want to avoid such "jobs" in the future because I don't want to miss so much time in life .. but well, I did have a whole year of lots of free time and now I am back to the good old routine. I know this is absolutely normal to most of the people in the world, working the whole day in an office but for me it's a big deal as I'm kind of a creative person and sometimes I just wanna rush out, get away from my computer and do something else .. haha. Anyway, while I'm working it feels good to have two days off every once in a while to be creative and productive in a different kind of way :-)

I hope you all are doing fine! xx

BAGGY PANTS AND SPARKLING SHOES

pictures by shewearsfashion.com
MENSWEAR Yesterday, Kavita and I had a really lovely girls day with lots of hot tea and good talks. Even though we stick together all the time at work we still manage to have lots of stuff to talk about on the weekend. I wore something really comfy; baggy pants, a simple blue blouse and my sparkling shoes. If you are looking for the perfect oversized blue blouse, go check the mens department at H&M - I got mine there and I love it! The only thing that's a bit weird is to close the buttons from the left to the right .. :-D I am totally in the mood for christmas this weekend that's why I had to wear those sparkling shoes I got at forever21 back in spring. I must admit I really forgot about them because I have quite a lot of shoes and some of them are hidden under my bed in boxes (oh gosh, my roommate would be really poor if there where even more shoes in our vestibule) They were perfect for this outfit and I might do another one with them as long as there is now snow :-)

This weekend has been a quite busy one. I am currently working on a trenchcoat for my sister's boyfriend for his 25th birthday - and to be honest, I struggled with it a bit because I'm not used to sewing menswear. It took me a while to find out how to do the pattern construction but I'm glad I said yes to this challenge as I love to think about how things would work and finding the solution on my own. But now, I am just relaxing and thinking about a nice Sunday evening treatment such as a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. I can't believe that the weekend is almost over, I had so much more things on my to do list .. oh my.. but anyway, I'm looking forward to going to Berlin on wednesday =) I hope you all had a nice weekend! xx

WE SPOON LIKE NO ONE ELSE

pictures by shewearsfashion.com

CATCHY TUNES Heyo! In case anyone is wondering about todays name of the article ... since I'm working in an office the whole whole day, I am constantly listening to music (that's why I hope to get awesome and super cool big earphones - if anyone fancies to get me some - go ahead :-) ) so yes, I am listening to music all the time and right now I've got "You and I" from Ingrid Michaelson on replay all the time ... and if you listen to the lyrics, they are quite cute ;-)  The song might be a bit weird when you listen to it the first time, but as always, after two times it gets a loooot better. Basically, this is what I do all the time with a song. If I am not sure about one, I listen to it as long as I either love it, or hate it till death. There's hardly any song I like from the first time I listened to it .. except of some the boy showed me .. 

Todays outfit. I thought about using my burgundy bag again since it was hidden in my wardrobe for a while because it has this size where I don't know if everything I need (or think to need) for a day at work (like food, agenda, make up ..... this is why I'm so bad with small bags - just don't know where to put my stuff) will fit in. BUT it worked out so I might use it more often =) I combined it with a simple white pullover, black pants and my fake fur jacket which is perfect for this time of the year as its not too cold outside right now. And of course, my heels. To be honest, when I got them, I couldn't really walk in them because they weren't that comfy but I was surprised as I wore them today and they are getting much more comfortable. I should probably wear them everyday from now on as they make me really tall!

Happy Thursday evening everybody! xx

HEY GIRL, HEY

pictures by shewearsfashion.com
IT'S FREEZIN Hey guys! Sorry for not posting anything in the last few days, I was a bit sick and I still don't feel 100% well but today I was in the mood to blog ;-) So here's a quick update of today's look. I look a bit pale because of my illness but hey, the outfit looks nice, right? Its a quite girly skirt but I fell in love when I saw it and I immediately knew how I wanted to combine it - simple! Black pullover, black tights, boots and coat and my beloved h&m conscious collection bag. What do you think? 

It's freaking cold right now in fancy Munich and I need to start layering, as one pullover and one pair of tights is not enough anymore ;-) I even read in the newspaper that it might snow tomorrow and I am so not ready for this. Whenever the first snow comes I am prepared with lots of tea, hot chocolate and super cool knitted socks by my grandmum, but this time I had no time to do anything. Although I like my work/internship I hate the fact that I'm leaving house in the morning and then coming home late in the evening where you can't do anything else.. I kind of miss the good old days where I was a student and had so much time for doing all the things that I love.. (I sound really weird saying "I miss the good old days") But honestly, how do people get used to this kind of routine? I need to find a solution for myself for this otherwise I will keep thinking I don't have any freetime. So the plan is, after yoga tonight (which I don't count as free time as its still in the office so I feel like I'm working ... in working out) I will just rest and read a good book - yes, I will do this and not fall asleep in the middle of reading .. oh man.

Have a nice evening guys! xx

84



pictures taken by shewearsfashion.com

TELL THE WORLD I'M COMING HOME Honestly, I should stop wearing black and blue all the time. When I don't know what to wear, I instinctively grab black and blue colored garments. Cra-azy. Oh well. So this week I wore black pants, an oversized sweater with the number 84 on the front and a blue beanie. Oh, and Kavita's shoes. They are from missguided and when she got them, I fell in love with them as well. They would probably be on my "too expensive list" but she's okay with sharing since we have the same size ;-) Even though they are quite high they are incredible comfy! As you can see, I was really in the mood to wear casual and sporty chic clothes this week and this pullover by Mango was the best choice ever as it's so warm and looks so cool with pants but cute with a skirt (you will see this combination probably next week)! 

So, this weekend I'm going to see my parents and some friends from my hometown again. Can't wait to go back home to Austria for two relaxing days. Although I love living in another city/country, and of course in an own apartment, I like coming home from time to time and get spoiled with good food and interesting talks with my parents ;-) It's actually always a bit busy if I go somewhere, whether if its Berlin to see the boy or Upper Austria to see my family, it's always combined with a (long) ride. Most of the time I get bored on those rides because fashion magazines don't take up too much time to read and I always forget to charge my Ipod. So I end up checking instagram and facebook every 10 minutes which is not good for my mobile phone battery as well. But today I'm prepared with a good book and I managed to have my Ipod fully charged. Awesome! what are your plans for the weekend?

SELFMADE GREY COAT


AN AFTERNOON IN BERLIN So I guess you've all been dying to see my new selfmade coat (or at least, I hope you all were a bit anxious about it)! As I told you, I've been thinking a lot about what to sew next and how my new coat should look like. I know that this season oversized boyfriend coats are all the rage, and I really thought about sewing one, BUT I wanted something simple that will stay in my wardrobe, like .. forever. Timeless I'd say. I literally combined everything I like when it comes to coats combined in this one - it has a belt, it has small details (leather), snap fasteners which you can't see, puffed sleeves with a sketchy cuff and a stand-up collar. Plus, it's grey, which is one of the nicest colors ever and can be combined with nearly everything! I chose grey, because first of all I don't have any coat or jacket in that color, and second, right now I am trying to get all those basic garments into my wardrobe. I feel like I need more basic stuff, like black and white t shirts, jeans that fit reeeally good and coats that look amazing and work with nearly everything. Thats why I've chosen to make a simple one in grey ;-)

So I started sewing on a Saturday and sewed like the whole weekend. I really wanted to finish the coat before going to Berlin as I wanted the boy to take pictures of it ;-) It worked out, but I think next time I'll work with more composure. The boy and I took those pictures in the streets of Berlin on Saturday. Unfortunately the weather was not that good for pictures, but I love the lighting  behind me, it reminds me of christmas and I can tell you, that there's already christmas decoration in the shopwindows in Berlin ;-) I really hope you like my latest selfmade garment - stay tuned, there will be more in the next time! 

happy wednesday! xx

BOYFRIENDCOAT


RUSSIAN LOVE Hey hey guys! Sorry for skipping some posts last week, it was just too busy and as always, it felt good to stay away from the computer a bit :-) But I'm here again, with a new outfit post the boy and I shot in Berlin. As you might have seen on my instagram (@carmen_wo) I got this lovely fake fur scarf from the onlineshop floralpunk which is run by Julia D. I got to know lovely Julia at the Blogger Bazaar in Munich where she sold her stuff + this awesome furry scarf - but I wasn't sure about it and then, as always, someone else bought it :-D So I contacted her, really desperately, if there's any furry scarf left and lucky me - I could get mine last week in Berlin, as she's living there. I was such a happy happy girlie, I think this scarf will keep me warm during winter time! Thanks again to Julia, next time I should not think twice but buy it straight away ;-)

So I combined my new investment with a simple little black dress with lace underneath, black tights and boots and a black bag. As I didn't want to be all black I kindly asked the boy to lend me his awesome coat :-) He bought it at COS in Munich when we were out doing some shopping and it's beautiful. You all know that I'm crazy about coats but this one, is simply magical. It's a timeless piece in dark blue, with a classic straight cut and hidden button-facing. I'm sure this one will last a long time which is even better for me, as I can steal it from time to time ;-) To add another color I used my diva lipstick by MAC, just because I think its the perfect color for autumn and this outfit in general. Everything else (red/pink) would probably be too bright or girly. This outfit also comes good with me new haircolor. I've shown you on my social media that I dyed my hair brown, but no worries, it will fade away after washing it several times. I didn't want to dye them for real, as I knew it would take ages to get my natural hair color again. But as always in a/w season I wanted to have darker hair ..
what do you guys think of todays outfit?

I hope you all had an amazing weekend, I am off to work now! xx

SKORT AND LEO BEANIE

pictures by shewearsfashion.com

TIME YOU'RE NO FRIEND OF MINE It's already November, how quickly did time pass by? Seriously .. it feels like I just moved to Munich but in fact, I've been living there for two whole months! Craaazy! The last weeks/months were the best ever and to be honest, 2013 was a really good year for me. Crazy that it's going to an end in two months. But wait .. this is too much new years eve talk ....
I also can't deal with the fact that autumn is over now and its going to be really really cold from now on - I don't even want to THINK of the word snow. Oh no. I loved this years autumn season, it was so colorful and really sunny and warm, I can't remember the last time we had that. Amazing and it motivates me a lot to take good blog pictures!

Well, but let's talk about the outfit from todays post. My sister ordered this wonderful skort from sheinside.com but sadly, its too short for her as she is much taller than me. So I was the lucky girl who got it, because I'm such a tiny tiny person. I was really happy because I already thought about ordering it myself .. hehe. So anyway, I wore this outfit to work last week - a simple white t shirt, a white blazer, this skort and my leo beanie which I absolutely adore! It's a bit big and it reminds me of a smurf but so cute =)  Right now I'm at the boy's place in casual Berlin and we took some awesome pictures, I'm excited to share with you! I hope you all are fine and you had a fancy Halloween night!

much love! xx
