Walking into Fall

I still don’t want to accept that the summer has already passed and I should walk into the fall. That’s why on every nice day I try to keep the summer feeling and still wear my summer outfits. Actually the simple and sporty ones like this short Bershka T-Shirt und Zara shorts are one of my favorites. I love short pants and joggers, moreover many of them can be matched even with formal tops and jackets – a trend that turned out to be very high this summer/autumn season, which makes me very happy.

And don’t forget – good things are coming down the road no matter the season, just keep walking, in a fashionway.

The summer is my vitamin C

It’s summertime, time to get the full sunshine, time to swim in the water of a lake, sea or swimming pool and no need to wear any wool! The summer is my favourite season and I love enjoying it to the full, no matter where. My post today is by the pool at home, of course without a real outfit, but with this nice black one-shoulder Calzedonia 3-piece swimsuit – the bottom part is a set of bikini and shorts, which I find very practical and like them very much. Not to mention that black is my fave for swimwear.

Birthday girl

Yesterday was my birthday and I would like to start by saying thank you to all my readers for your wonderful birthday wishes! I can’t even begin to tell you how much they mean to me! This is actually the third birthday we celebrate together and you’ve always been so incredibly sweet, kind and supportive! Thank you so much for making me so happy!

So I was taking the day for myself and my family. But I couldn’t help myself not to share this fun look that is one of my all time favorites. I picked up this lovely pale violet Zara slouchy jeans with a black Zara top and matched them with a pair of black strappy sandals, a Bershka belly bag and a fake leather Sisley jacket.

Hope you all are having a great week!

An easy look with a little black dress

I like very much this formula – a little black dress + a pair of favorite shoes = ready to go.

Like almost every woman I am very squeamish about my look no matter where I’m going. But very often I just want to put a piece and go out. For such occasions, when the time is short, I always use my secret formula – a little black dress or a tunic plus a pair of shoes and I’m ready. Black, because the black color fits almost everywhere and a dress or tunic because it‘s easy to wear, simple and unpretentious.

For today’s look I chose a Zara straight, simple black dress and matched it with a pair of nice Michael Kors heeled booties. So, with those two opposites – simple (the dress) and chic (the pair of shoes) I made a quick, eye-catching look in a fashionway.

Mint green with black

We’ve seen many different green hues this spring/summer season, but there’s one different and unique green – the pastel mint green. Looking pastel and creamy, the mint green is definitely one of the most special one in the green palette.

While there is nothing new about pastels in spring, the mint green color during the spring 2021 runways felt fresh as ever. After several seasons filled with neon colors, the muted green was really a welcome sight. Mint, aquamarine, avocado, pistachio, moss or laurel – whichever name you choose, this fashion color are on trend this spring/summer.

To be honest, the mint green color is charming, looks comfortable and matches well with many different occasions. Here I have rounded up an outfit with it – the main color is black, with the green as secondary. A Zara oversized shacket jeans shirt, short black Calzedonia biker leggings with a black Zara top, Michael Kors shoes, an eye-catching glittering Bershka belly bag and black sunglasses.

One way to style an oversized sweater

Big and baggy sweaters are all the rage this season. I would like to show you one way to wear such a sweater without looking as if you are swallowed by it.

When choosing such sweaters we think that „the bigger and baggier, the better“, but actually that is wrong – if it’s too big we will start looking like a huge sack. If we want to be chick and trendy, we should make good size decisions and stick closer to our standard size for sweaters, because they are anyway purposely designed to be oversized.

As an oversized knit will inevitably make you look bigger than you actually are, the easiest way to solve that is to combine it with form-fitting or narrow bottoms – for instance skinny jeans, leggings, narrow pants, over-knee socks or over-the-knee boots. I personally prefer to wear it on its own without pants or leggings below it.

 And to avoid getting lost in this big clothes, we should show some skin – might that be a more generous décolletage or some bare leg. 

I combined my oversized black sweater with a pair of black over-the-knee boots. This I matched with my favourite NA-KD coat and some black accessories – a H&M cat hat and a black smiley Bershka bag, in a fashionway.

Black at any time, in any combination

You can wear black at any time, at any occasions and in any combination.

No matter the time of the year I always have a lot of black pieces in my outfits, mainly because they are really easy to match. Honestly, in the past, the black color was predominant in my wardrobe, but the more I followed the fashion trends, the more I reduced it. And not only because of those trends, but also because I realised how beautiful colors could be – colors that I previously thought would not fit me. In fact I also found out something more – we wear the colors that match our mood. Maybe that was the reason that for a long time I was hiding behind the black color. But step by step I changed that, albeit even today, when in doubt, I choose black.

In this outfit I went for a trendy black hoodie with pleats on the back, a black Pimkie booties, a black Valentino bag and a black winter cap, matched with a long beige Zara coat and gray Gucci jeans. So although the black pieces are dominant, adding some fresh colors make the outfit looking nice in a fashionway.

High waist jeans

These loose straight high-waist jeans have been laying in my wardrobe for quite some time, as I didn’t really have the guts to wear them – I usually prefer slim-fit ones, that shape the leg. Today though, when I put them on, I got to somewhat like them. I combined them with a black top and black booties. 

This type of pants are very in at the moment, but honestly not everything that is on trend fits to every type of body shape – I would say for myself in this case that is true. That’s why we should always take care to choose not only good matching outfit pieces, but also ones that highlight our pros and hide the cons.

Cute dress and casual plain boots

A pair of boots are year-round wardrobe staples both for warmer or cold months – from classic white boots to the over the knee ones. Such are the timeless combat boots – a season-less pair which work with any outfit – even with a nice dress.

I have always considered that a nice black dress matches in the best way with heels but depending on the occasion it can work great with boots too. As I am so much in love with my super comfortable MONKI black boots (that I featured in an earlier sports outfit post), this time I rounded up another style of outfit with a black Zara flounce, volan dress of course in a fashion way.

There’s nothing like a pair of chunky black boots to add some edge to a cute dress.

June mood

Although it’s already mid-June – it’s incredible how with the whole pandemic situation time flew by and it’s already June – the weather in Vienna is not really warm yet, but rather unstable. That’s why I am very unsure if the day calls for a summer outfit, or maybe rather not.

Still, for me, the beginning of June marks the start of the summer, therefore I am completely in the appropriate spirit – short pants, fancy tops, summer dresses, sandals, flip flops, bikinis, pool time and of course the sea. But this summer for me is a bit special – as we are moving to a new house, there will be only pool time at home, no travel to the seaside like every year. That doesn’t bring me down, on the contrary – I will always find time to travel, but moving into one’s own new house does not happen that often. I’m extremely happy that the house of dreams of my family is now a fact.

In that line of thought, my outfit today is with black shorts from Zara – I like all kinds of shorts – be it formal or fancy, because they are comfortable and easy to combine with other stuff. The top piece is from ALCOTT – once more in my favourite pink, but with long sleeves because of the changing weather. The look is completed by the accessories – a cute black Valentino bag and summer shoes from Humanic, in a fashionway.
