Naked Smoky Day and Night

We all have our beauty routine. Some prefer to wear a light mascara, others distinguish themselves with an eyeliner, or energizing colors. My go-to routine is for either a natural look or smoky eyes. A smoky effect in the daytime? Indeed! One of my favorite makeup brand Urban Decay recently launched the “Naked Smoky” palette… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet © It is hard to decide how to dress up for “moody” weather. The day was hot with an atmosphere charged up for heavy rain. Intuitively I paired my Topshop shorts with a pair of cut-out boots. I tucked in the tee that I received from Diesel on my trip to… Read More »

BlackBird Cafe, Lausanne

There are many places in Lausanne for good coffee and breakfast. However, I had one of my best pancakes in a recently opened Black Bird Cafe. It reminds me of a café I stumbled into in Amsterdam. The charming interior with re-modernized vintage furniture is bathed in natural light, making it also a pleasant place… Read More »

Matching Seasons

Pictures by Inès Monnet I already enjoy wearing items of the new fall collections. I am of course not referring to cool weather clothing such as a fur parka. However, many pieces are versatile and suitable all year. Take this total La Halle outfit for example: khaki pants and a graphic-cut top both from the… Read More »

Sunday Oversized Fashion

Pictures by Inès Monnet  Sundays usually find me in oversized comfy clothes. Here I put myself in a more dressed up version with my Mango shirt and bf jeans. To tone down the manly look, I wore the lace-up heels I bought on my last trip to New York.   On that note, I will be… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet High heels readily make you look dressed-up, so we reserve them for special (usually evening) occasions. I received these Topshop sandals a while ago but just couldn’t find the right event to wear them. Instead of waiting, I just style them for casual wear! For a more relaxed look, I balance… Read More »

Poppy Red

Pictures by Inès Monnet The show-stopping red of my Aziza Zina dress reminds me of poppy fields. I received this piece some time ago but found only recently the occasion to shoot it. Instead of the usual Street Style looks I share, Inès and I created an editorial. The idea was to let the sleek… Read More »

What I love, day in day out

Pictures by Inès Monnet This outfit sums up pretty well everything I love to wear on a daily basis. Let’s take a closer look. I want first to highlight the new Adidas Stan Smith Honeycomb Gloss I recently got (available at Jelmoli Zürich). With the small detail of a honeycomb texture to the leather, this… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet I know it is a little early to talk about the year-end festive times when we have more occasions to put on an elegant evening dress. However, I just couldn’t resist ordering now this beautiful Little Mistress dress from Zalando. This brings up the question: Which model best fits your body… Read More »

Grüezi All! from Gstaad

Pictures by Alison L. and me Swatch recently launched its “Grüezi All!” collection (Grüezi is Hi! in the Swiss German dialect). I was invited along with a few journalists and fellow-bloggers to be among the first to discover the watches.  We travelled up by train to the glamorous alpine village of Gstaad and stayed at the… Read More »
