When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds

earstuds - idae (seoul, south korea), necklace - vintage, scarf - no name

shirt - dongdaemun (seoul), blazer - gift, jeans - tally weijl

A cup of coffee when it's minus 10 degrees outside = ♥

boots - express bus terminal, subway shopping (seoul)
My favorite shoes at the moment.

This nude blazer was a xmas gift. I love it!

So these are my latest purchases. I still couldn't lay eyes on the perfect winter coat though, but I'm pretty sure that I will find one at the Dongdaemun Night Market. Thanks to a friend I got to know the night market, which is well-stocked with shopping malls and keenly shoppers rummaging for the ideal piece. And the best thing about this market: the malls and shops are open till six in the morning! If you want to see stylish retailers and crazy shoppers DDM Night Market is the place to be!

Wednesday's Interior Decoration Inspiration: Bedrooms

In about a month I will move into a new apartment and I'm currently obssessed with interior decoration blogs to get some inspiration. I've decided to share with you some images I saved in a weekly post. This Wednesday I've chosen bedrooms. I want mine to be mostly white because I think it creates a wonderfully calming place, exactly what a bedroom is supposed to be in my opinion. Below are some of my favorites:

These days I'm really into furry rugs on hardwood floors. This example also shows that white isn't just white; using ivory, cream, antique white, and pale beige in different textures can add dimension to a room.

Mint has always been one of my favorite colors and I'd definitely like to incorporate it into my own bedroom as well.

A touch of black can also add lots of chicness to an otherwise white bedroom.

Girliness at its best.

Why not use a crate as a bedside table?

This branch clothing rack is a great DIY and definitely something I'll try to do as well.

Sunday Morning

Having recently purchased a waffle iron I couldn’t wait to bake my first waffles at home. They surely birghtened up our Sunday breakfast. Below is the recipe I used for three persons:


160 g sugar
160 g softened butter (room temperature)
3 eggs
1 pack vanilla sugar
A little bit of rum (optional)
325 g flour
300 ml milk
2 tsp baking soda

In a bowl, combine the beaten eggs with the sugar and butter until you have a foamy batter. Add the vanilla sugar and rum. Then add the flour and baking soda, which will turn the batter quite sticky. Finally pour the milk, whisking well while doing so. You should get a smooth batter that is not runny.

Preheat your waffle iron. Follow your waffle maker’s instruction manual for this, I had mine at medium heat. I also greased the iron with a spray but that’s up to you. Pour an appropriate amount of batter into your hot waffle maker: this amount will vary from machine to machine. Cook until golden and crisp. Serve with whipped cream, berries, bananas, maple syrup… it’s really up to you!


Where do we go from here?

I know it seems like ages since I posted an outfit but here’s finally one. The truth is, I’ve been postponing all the ideas I have for the blog but I hope to bring a little more structure and consistency to it in the next weeks so stay tuned... Feel free to share in the comments section what you would like to see more of on Styleseeking Zurich!

I got this wind coat a while back from Wholesale Dress and especially like the collar, which can be worn open like this or also overlapped. It comes in a variety of colors so have a look at the site if you're interested.

Seoul -3° C & Naketano


After handing in my last term paper I flew directly to Seoul to spend my semester break! And guess what, it's so much colder here than in Zurich! Fortunately I packed my winter parka from Naketano for the trip. The inner surface of the jacket is so fluffy and it keeps me really warm! The smart casual look makes it possible to wear it also with chic pieces!

Check out the Naketano Online Shop HERE!

Pumpkin and apricot jam with vanilla

My parents have a small but cute garden where they also grow pumpkins amongst others things. I think it's great to be able to have self-grown organic produce living in the city so I'm always happy when they bring something over. My favorite thing to do with them is risotto but my mom is especially fond of pumpkin deserts. I was in the mood for tyring out something new and came across a recipe which was sort of a compromise. Not a desert but still something sweet. It was my first time making jam, so I was a little bit seceptical at first but I just had it for breakfast this morning and loved it!

Recipe adapted from this one:

(yields 3 large jars and 1 small one)

1 large can of apricots
500 gr. pumpkin
500 gr. sugar (I used 100 gr. fructose and 400 gr. jam sugar)
1 vanilla bean
zest of 1 lemon and its juice
2 cl brown rum (can also be left out)

Drain the juice of the apricots and chop them up into little pieces.
Cook the diced pumpkin in a large pot with the juice of the apricots and the chopped apricots until soft (for about 5 minutes). Then puree with a mixer. Now add the jam sugar, the vanilla seeds, rum, lemon juice and the grated zest . Let everything boil for a good while, then fill immediately into jars (which need to be sterilized with boiling hot water beforehand). Turn the jars upside down for at least 5 minutes so they close vacuum.
