A kimono sweater and blue jeans: styling for a cold summer evening

For some time now I have been crushing on my Jjill cashmere kimono sweater that I recently added to my wardrobe. I love this particular style of kimono sweaters from Jjill that come in a wide variety of fabrics from cotton to linen and cashmere and I have to confess that I have one in every fabric-type to suit the need of every season. Of course this one in grey cashmere is outstanding in color, quality, design and comfort and is fast becoming my wardrobe favorite.

Rainy day chic: a white Ralph Lauren Polo jacket, jeans from True Religion & Nike sneakers

So finally I get a chance to visit Goenneranlage, the historic park in Baden Baden, Germany, with a view of the Black Forest Mountains. It's Tuesday morning and I still have a few hours before I take the afternoon train to Bermersbach, a small village in the mountains located about 16 km from Baden Baden. Even as I am deciding what clothes to wear in my hotel room, it begins to rain. I am concerned that I don't have any rainboots or even a raincoat and hope my Nike sneakers will match up the weather for the day. My white Ralph Lauren Polo jacket that I take almost everywhere with me, is fast becoming my indispensable companion.

In Style & unplugged in Ratingen, a small fairy-tale town in Germany

Ratingen is a small town in Germany, located about 12 km north of Düsseldorf. One of the few German towns that experienced only small war damage, it still preserves it's pre-war architecture. It had been raining in Germany for a week and we were not sure if the weather would permit us to have our outing in Ratingen, so we were pleasantly surprised when despite the weather forecast, the sun came out and we could go ahead with our plans! I wanted to wear something stylish but also very comfortable for the day so I chose the Eileen Fisher Tencel Twill Pants in Midnight (almost like a dark navy) and matched them with the Eileen Fisher Funnel Neck Cropped Top in Drapey Tencel Terry.

This #Americanastyle @RalphLauren RRL shirt, with @TrueReligion jeans & @Burberry #espadrilles,can never go out of fashion!

I don't usually follow a rule of style and wear whatever is comfortable and looks good on me. I do prefer pieces that are classic and never go out of style. I am a huge fan of Ralph Lauren, thanks to his quintessential and elegant style of clothing that usually never goes out of fashion. From Ralph Lauren polo tees to oxford shirts, I love the style and fit of each one of his carefully designed garments, that appropriately define the wardrobe of a modern working woman.

The @JJillStyle #jeanstyle & #jeanfit directory!

Hi guys! How are you today? Since I have like 8 pairs of Jjill jeans in all different kinds of fit, I though it would be a nice idea to illustrate each different kind of fit with photos so that before you shop your next Jjill pair of jeans, you know exactly what you are getting! With height at 170cms, am usually a US size 2 or a size 4. It is possible that you may not find all of these styles available all the time but they keep showing up every now and then, sometimes even at great sale deals (like $20!), so keep coming back to Jjill.com for your ideal jeans. :)

A nicely styled denim jacket has always been one of my best bets when I want to look good without much fuss! Here I combine my Talbots denim jackets and a pair of True Religion jean leggings (so comfortable-I never want to take them off!) with a Ralph Lauren striped tee for one of my favorite spring looks--denim on denim! P.S. The shoes are Nu by Neo from Australia. :)

My @JJillStyle #linen #bigshirt is a #wardrobemusthave!

.@JJillStyle Last year I bought a beautiful Jjill linen big shirt in white with multi-colored embroidered panels. The embroidery and it's placement on the shirt and the linen big shirt style, makes it a truly unique piece worth posting even after one year! I love Jjill linen big shirts especially because they are so different from all the other fitted...

#Striped Speranza in sultry outdoors

Inspired by #KateMiddleton style, I bought myself a striped tee on sale from Zara and paired with my Jjill Tried and True Fit Crop Jeans and stylish flip-flops from a small boutique near my house (I found some really fun Flip-Flops on shop.nordstrom.com ).  Chanel limited edition red nail-paint was the perfect choice for a bright pop of color. Here is the look!

Dressing for a yoga retreat

Happy International #YogaDay everybody!! Today I also posted on my #TravelBlog my experience at a #spiritualretreat in #BlackForest in Germany two years ago. I am a #fashoinaholic and take care to dress well even if I am isolated in some corner of the world attending a #spiritual/yoga retreat. These are some of my must-haves for the retreat (in summer, of course!)–

Patagonia women's Serenity Pants

just love the #PatagoniaSerenityPants! I am not a track-pant person but when I bought these, for days I couldn't wear anything else! The 89% organic cotton and 11% spandex knit makes them superbly comfortable so that you simply can't wear anything else! Above all they are so slimming! They hold shape and the flat seams feel great against the skin. The foldover-waistband is very comfortable too-one can fold it up with a short tank or a tee without having to worry about anything showing anywhere! I combined some of my semi-formal jackets and sweaters with the pants-just right for the stylish look I wanted to create. Available on sale at $55 only on patagonia.com. If you don't find your size in the sales, I would just buy all the colors full price at $79 only on patagonia.com! They come in three different lengths-the 30" inseam for Small, the 32" inseam for Regular and the 34" inseam for a Tall length.
