Up on the hill
Hi you! How's everything? I've been searching for a credible winter-proof dress for some time and while checking out the new Baum und Pferdgarten collection I bumped into the perfect overknee dress. Their A/W 2016 collection is inspired by the Villa Necchi and has Tilda Swinton in “I Am Love” as the muse. Mind the ribcord fabric which is perfect for winter as you'll never get cold in it. Actually ribcord has been a forgotten fabric for quite some years. For the upcoming winter season, it's back! I combined the "purple-ish" slash "burgundy" dress with classy and timeless black Sam Edelman heels (find them here). Why heels? Well I'm actually not a huge heels fan, but for this look you just need them. Overknee dresses require a little help from heels at least if you want to look tall ;)
Now more about the lovely location where this shooting took place. As my photographer and I went to Ibiza to relax before university starts again, we decided to look out for cool spots on the island and shoot some looks out there. More about the other looks soon :) While enjoying the sun at Experimental beach (definitely a must visit!), a pretty impressing hill came across our sight. Combining an elegant dress and heels with a rather raw environment seemed like the perfect shot to us. The heels, my feet and this steep hill was a real challenge, but hey you gotta work for nice results ;) Hope you like it! Thanks for reading! By the way, find my favorite Ibiza hotspots here.
