Vintage Winter Holidays

Dear All 

Winter Holidays are here for the constant switch from eating delicious food, sitting inside with a hot chocolate and watch the same old Christmas movies over and over again. 

To make sure I can fully enjoy those inside activities I love to have an outdoor break in between. As we live super close to a wonderful valley we often drive up there and go for a walk through fairytale forests or as we did yesterday go for skating. I think I am having the oldest skies and very vintage adidas skating shoes which I fancy a lot. Together with Mom's glacier googles and Dad's headband it makes me feel like I time travelled to the past. And since this winter I am equipped with some beautiful gear from Odlo and Ammann Shoes which I wanna share with you. I love it when functionality looks so fashionable. Since I tried on the ski undergarment of Odlo two years ago I don't wanna miss it anymore. I use their Blackcomb Evolution combo for skating, snowboarding and sometimes even if I go running in the cold and it always keeps me warm but aerated. You can't really see it in the picture, you can only guess how it looks like when you spot the sleeves where it says "I care"
This red jacket was a lovely Christmas gift by Odlo from their Vintage line and it's called Anette. It is perfect for skating as it keeps the wind away.  

The shoes you can see on my pictures are from Ammann Shoes. A traditional swiss family business since 1917 which is located in Oberentfelden. They name their shoes by famous Valleys and Villages in Switzerland, preferably some where you find a lot of snow. And there is even one shoe with the name of my hometown, Luzern. The shoes are produced in the Piemont in Italy, high quality is guaranteed. I fell in love with their signature red shoe laces and the fact that they are the most comfy and safe pair of winter boots you can imagine. Lined with sheepskin and with a resistant sole they are ideal for those fairytale forest walks I spoke about in the beginning. 
Let's see how long I can keep them for myself, my mom already has an eye on them since she just fell in love with the shoes. 

I wish you a wonderful time during your winter holidays!

Merry Christmas from Winterwonderland Switzerland

Dear Readers

I hope you've spent a wonderful December so far. Christmas is for me always the time to come down and detach from from everything work related just spend time with the family and be present. 
Nevertheless I want to spend some time on this entry since it is very important to me to say thank you for your fidelity. For more than 5 years I am leading Bonsoir Cherie now and I still get amazing chances to work with brands I love, to meet great people and to discover so many beautiful things.
I hope I can take you on more trips in 2018 and share amazing places with you. 

Enjoy these days with your beloved ones, eat great food, laugh and be happy. 
Merry Christmas! 

Thank you for being with me in 2017

Christmas under the Sun - Outfit Inspiration

Although I was on a little break I couldn't resist to take some pictures in Fuerteventura. And especially as it was to show you a Christmas outfit inspiration. Who knows maybe one of you is celebrating under the sun and needs exactly this kind of input?! I can only recommend an escape to that wonderful island. To be able to walk around in dresses in December is something that makes me really happy. And of course the fact that there is the sun, the sea and some waves to surf. 

But anyway - you can always wear that lovely lace dress with the teasingly back neckline on Christmas in the cold weather as well. I hope you are having a chimney fire at home to still stay warm. 
This is one of the dressy dresses I've got at La Redoute to make sure I am ready for the Celebration Season. And as a little surprise for my dear readers I am happy to share a discount code with you. You can get a 20CHF discount on your purchase with my Code CHERI if you shop online at La Redoute.

No Time for November Blues - Styles for Autumn

When it gets colder many of us rather stay home and miss the warm temperatures. So do I - but I always try to still get outside and charge energy in the nature. Get some fresh air and unwind in the forest helps to keep me happy. I love to spend a longer weekend up in the mountains. One of my favorite places to go to is called Eigental and is very close by where I grew up. To go up there on a Sunday is something we used to do as a family very often. So here you find a look to go on a long weekend in November. This is not the typical outfit I go on long walks with but more an Autumn Sunday Look. With a cozy sweater and some flat knee high boots and Jeans you're perfectly set for a little walk. And if you change the boots for sneakers you're also set for the dirt walks through the forest. 
What are your plans to escape the well know November Blues?

Autumn Getaway - The Perfect Weekend in the Nature III

After three days in Pertisau we continued our journey to Tegernsee in Bavaria and further to Munich where we enjoyed a day at the Octoberfest. To finish our trip we drove to Schwangau to visit the famous castle "Schloss Neuschwanstein" which was actually the model of several castles in Disney movies. The most breathtaking view was the one from far away, since you could not guess by then how many people are having the same aim and will gaze at the castle next to you. 

We were happy to be supported by Volvo with their brand new V90 Cross Country. In their new campaign it's all about taking a break and living the moment. "You can't live it all, unless you can live fully. Now."Volvo quotes the english philosopher Alan Watts (1959) and hits a topic which is more present than ever. So that's exactly what we did - we took a break, escaped the daily live and enjoyed the forests and nature in Austria and Bavaria. And with the most comfortable car ever as our companion. It was driving almost by itself and allowed a relaxed journey. The amazing soundsystem and the massage function (which honestly surprised us by its quality - even some humans could learn from this car) inside the seat were the cherries on the top. 

Many thanks to Volvo for the kind support and to my amazing driver Michelle <3

Autumn Getaway - The Perfect Weekend II - Up In The Mountains

We took the boat from Pertisau to cross the lake and went on a beautiful hike starting from Buchenau up to Dalfazalm. We only did not consider that it was quite a high amount of height meters we had to overcome. So we ended up happy but a bit exhausted at the top to continue doing what we spent most of our time these days: eating Kaiserschmarrn and drinking coffee. I can highly recommend the route from Buchenau up to Dalfazalm, along the waterfalls and then walking through the forest to the Rofan mountain range. The walk was very rich in variety in terms of view.

I am wearing an outfit with pieces I was allowed to choose from La Redoute.
The down jacket was perfect when we reached the waterfall, otherwise I would have got soaking wet. And my shirt says "Life is going on - keep moving" - a quote I really like. Never stop exploring and discover new places and get outdoors in the nature.

Outfit Details: 

Shoes: Nike
Shirt: La Redoute
Denim: Diesel
Down Jacket: Adidas via La Redoute
Backpack: Eastpack
Watch: Maurice Lacroix
Belt: Diesel
Sunglasses: Wonderland Stateline
