Could I look more French?

To day I decided to get out of bed early and go to the mall before the crowd. I was looking for an outfit that would be both cosy and would make me feel good. How is that different than any other outfit, any other day? – you may ask. Well, it’s not 🙂

Spice up your Monday

Good morning guys,

Though I have been reluctant to wear this color for years, I am now fully diving into this red trend!

This top is from Zara basic, it is a very fine and light knit which is just what I need for the office. Between the leather skirt and the red top I’m not sure anymore who’s spicing up who – but I love it!

I also zoomed you in my current favorite ring from my current favorite brand – no surprises: & Other Stories.

Happy Monday to you all, wishing you a great week ahead.

Is there better ally than a black dress? Day at work or night out, it fits every occasion.

This is a very uninspired speech – do I really need to talk you into that anuway? A dainty necklace and inspired shoes did the tricks for me when going to dinner with my hubby. Sometimes less can really be more 🙂

Dress – H&M

Shoes – Topshop

Comfy Monday

Hey guys,

I loved those jeans so much in light blue that I went back and got a darker version. At the moment they are my dream jeans, very normcore, stretch and super nice quality. Because the outfit was a bit boring  plain I took my Minnetonka out of the cupboard. They are so cute and so comfy!

One of my colleagues recently came to me and told me “Sabine, I discovered the Mom jeans, they’re amazing! I bought a pair and I wish I could wear them everyday!” – Well, yeaahhh.

Paired it with a crop top because most of the stomach is already covered anyway, and covering the rest of it with my kimono. Tadaaaa.

Be your own sunshine

I like to take advantage of the sales to buy more excentric clothing, the ones I might not be 100% sure about but look like they have a high potential.

You got it, this jacket is one them. The color is clearly out there but the cut is very clean and the fabric super nice, with navy satin lining. I had to get it.

I am glad I did because it is a great companion of those all-in-black kind of days. Of course I like to wear sneakers to keep it cas’ but that’s just me 😉

Jacket – Zara

Pants – Massimo Dutti

Sneakers – Nike

Bag – Betty x Lancaster (all time fave, are you sick of it yet?)

Bagels!

I decided to bake bagels at home and I am so happy with the final result that I wanted to share it with you.

I followed the recipe of Sophisticated Gourmet because it was not using any mixer. Not only I do not own a proper mixer for bread and dough but I really wanted to try kneading.

I used Chapatti flour because where I live in Dubai I did not find easily bread flour – and I did not have the patience to wait until I found it 😀 The result looks pretty good to me, what do you think?

I was happily surprised to see that it is actually quite easy to do. It does take a while because of the proofing time, but there is nothing difficult.

I popped some seeds on some of them and left the most of them plain as I knew I would have to freeze the extras.

That’s it for me guys, I just wanted to share the excitement! Let me know if you try the recipe and how it turns out 🙂

Hi lovely people!

I didn’t have a chance to shoot anything recently but with the opening of one of my favorites’ shops in Dubai, I thought I would share a peak in my wishlist.

As usual I am in love with the crazy patterns, and the pink and the glittery (shout out to the very unicorn-ish shoes at the end!)
