Everything points to autumn

Autumn may signal the end of the summer season, but to me there’s no reason to be sad, because I love the arrival of this colourful time of year.
For me, autumn is the time for the leaves to fall and rustle beneath our feet, and for the first chestnuts to be roasted. When I get back to my cosy warm apartment after a long walk in the park, I can’t help but notice that snug feeling: for me it’s definitely a feel-good moment.
As a model, I spend a lot of time outdoors, which is why I need to carefully consider which outfit will be most suitable to take me through the day. It must be cosy, weatherproof, and of course it needs to have style. When the summer comes to an end, I dig out all my autumn and winter favourites. Usually footwear comes first: ankle boots as well as tall ones.
Flat, high-heeled, coloured, classic black, zipped, lace-up, I’ve got them all! This year, one of my favourite designs is this black lace-up boot by Högl. With its intricate laces and ridged sole, it fits the bill as a combat boot in the current military style. But it also has a really chic and elegant side, with its slender lines and fine leather.

For this look, I have snuggled up with one of my beloved long cardigans. For a cardigan to make its way into my wardrobe, it has to be soft and at least long enough to cover my bottom. Most of all, I love wearing oversized designs in muted colours such as black, brown, grey or nude tones.
Today I have gone for a simple black outfit with grey accents. To go with it, I’ve chosen a lipstick in a beautiful autumnal deep red. As a model, I need to wear muted colours when I go to castings, so I’m perfectly prepared for my next modelling job with this outfit.
