Stay healthy and stay at home

While I am trying to follow the strict quarantine rules here in Vienna and hoping that better days will come soon, I am sending you some positive vibes and a hole lot of love, from my house to yours. I think that now during this difficult period with the Coronavirus it is very important to stay positive and healthy, and while at it why not take care of our bodies and soul.

But we should also do something, that our future self will thank us for, not just staying at home and thinking how miserable the situation is. Being in quarantine is not an excuse not to take care of our looks, to eat unhealthy and not to exercise. Looking good should not be reserved for just going out and meeting others, it can also show self-respect and respect for our loved ones at home. And there is plenty of yummy food that is healthy and lots of fun exercises one can do at home. Even doing the house work and running up and down the floors in the house 100 of times a day is an exercise by itself. I took the time to finish some stuff at home, and I did my 100’s easily the last days 😁🤪.

As you can see I try to keep my time full as much as possible. You can do it, too – take the time for yourself – do the things you always wished you had the time for, learn something, even pick a new hobby if you wish. This is is a difficult time for everyone but we have been blessed with the gift of time. So let’s use it properly!

A casual comfortable look with a long faux fur coat

Hi everyone, happy Saturday! I’m back to you with a new outfit as always. This full look I matched based on this marvellous, comfortable and suiting the early spring season, long faux fur coat – it really is one of my besties that I wear day-to-day here in Vienna at the moment.

It’s still freezing here in the city, so it’s all about the layers… and of course, coats that feel like blankets! I can’t tell how much I love this embellished faux fur. Isn’t it stunning? Such amazing quality and a very striking piece to have in your wardrobe. I paired it with several of my usuals – one of my black Tunics, long over-knee socks, white boots and a white bag. Oh, and lest not forget my comfortable gloves without fingers. It took me a while to try out this outfit but I have to say I love it.

Love animals

When I saw this huge painting of a dog on that dark building, I just could not resist to use it as a background for my post. Not just because I love animals, but also because this commercial is not like every other simple one you see everywhere. I myself have three animals at home – three rescued street cats, which I love very much. If I had the possibility I would adopt even more, as I feel that each such animal is a rescued life. Thats why I appeal to everyone who wants an animal at home not to buy them but to adopt if possible.

And as the weather is still cold and grey , my look today is in similar mood and tones – a grey velvet Zara skirt, matched with a trendy colored sweater, a warm black Just Cavalli jacket, a pair of super comfortable Air-cooled memory foam Skechers sneakers and one of my favorite Versace Jeans bags.

Early spring

Early spring is my favorite season for fashion, so when I finally have the possibility to put less layers on, I happily take some off and match my outfits accordingly. Today’s look of mine is based on the over-knees – from ponchos and capes to trenches and short coats, over-the-knee boots make a statement and always flawlessly complete my look.

Thera are many different ways to wear your long boots but I think in this season nothing beats a good sweater dress with a pretty short skirt to complement the over-the-knee boots. Instead of freezing your bare legs in the not-yet-so-warm weather and pretending you are not, or wondering which tights to put on, these are actually really warm and look always trendy.

I have put together my LV over-the-knees with a brown sugar velvet skirt, a black Zara sweater shirt, a cutie faux fur short coat and a LV bag. I wear these during the whole fall, winter and early spring, because they go with any outfit you can think of: jeans and a coat, a sweater dress and a jacket or a short skirt and a blazer. These over-the-knee boots have never met an outfit they can’t elevate in a fashion way.

Classy and cool day time look in black and brown

Isn’t it crazy how you can transform a casual T-shirt and jeans look to casual chic almost instantaneously as soon as you throw on a faux fur and a teddy coat? There is something about the black and brown tones and faux fur that gives an elegant, romantic and feminine feel. I feel absolutely darling in that faux leather pants and teddy coat combined with the black flat casual booties.

Fashion trends come and go, but one that retains its timeless style is the fake fur. Such a jacket is a statement outwear any fashionista should have when the temperatures start to drop. And also a good faux puff-piece could not only keep you nice and snug, but it could also single handedly glam up any ensemble.

From teddy to oversized jackets, to vibrant colors and funky chic patterns / prints – this is one cold-weather piece your wardrobe needs.

I have already rounded up some of my favourite stylish fake fur outfits and inspirations to help you rock this furry trend, in a fashionway – a dark brown teddy coat, a beige sweater, black Pimkie faux fur leather backpipe pants, a Gucci scarf, a black Pinko bag and a pair of cool flat booties.

Believing in the beauty of dreams

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams – I love this quote and believe that many of our dreams could come true. In this context my 2020 has started with a lot of positivity, purposes and dreams. I feel it will be a great year, full of exciting experiences and achievements. I am in the right state of mind to bring the book of my life to the next chapter and to fill it with new adventures. Epictetus said: „First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.“ So, I am ready and motivated.

Meanwhile motivation is one of the most important things we should have, it is an emotion, a way of thinking which leads us forward. We become what we think about.
So , I like dreaming, I do like also fairytales like children, but I also like to do things in order to fulfil my dreams.

My photos today are again from Vienna, which in the evenings looks really fairly, wrapped in softy Zara sweater, also Zara skinny Jeans and Sacha Sneakers.

Love wearing long coats?

I always believed that a long coat is a super versatile piece of clothing that a woman should have in her winter wardrobe. I got convinced about that only after I started wearing one, because a cool, well-fitting long coat instantly elevates my look from super casual to dapper formal.

Moreover, it’s very easy to make an outfit with it – one of my favourite approaches is to just throw the coat over a simple long sweater and a pair of over knee boots – the result is amazing. Such a combination can also work in a formal meeting or event.

Wool is a preferred fabric for such an overcoat. But if you’re planning to wear an overcoat in the summer as well then go for 100% cotton. My coat here is with 50% Camel fur und 50% wool. The style is in your hands – there are many different types of long coats – no hard rules here, you can pick the one you like the most, but pick the length according your figure. The one here is a bit oversized, because I like to wear it with thick layers underneath.

I think a black fedora hat matches to a long coat nicely – it’s a chic and formal addition, in a fashion way.

Something checkered – yes, of course!

Checkered pants or leggings – I’m going for both . They are just beautiful and almost everyone is wearing them because they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, they are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing, wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels; some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

I like wearing them on different occasions, but today I am going in a city street style and match my checkered Calzedonia leggings with a simple black shirt, accessories and once again one of my favorite teddy coats – the one in yellow.

For achieving a classic look with such kind of pants, grab a basic shirt or singlet out from the back of your wardrobe and pair it with them. White, grey, naxy, black and tan tops are also great options, matched in a fashion way.

Life is better in sneakers

Out of all my fashion struggles, I think shoes are by far the most challenging for me. Most of my time I wear casual or elegant shoes and rarely put on stretchy flats or sneakers, unless I’m exercising of course. That is because I think sport shoes do not emphasise a woman’s femininity. But if chosen right you could match them pretty well.

Moreover the current fashion trends allow for breaking of stereotypes – ugly, chunky, plateau-sneakers find their way into many outfits. Although a bit rough, i got to like them, although i would prefer the flat converse-type and sock sneakers more.

My outfit today is street style – a favourite t-shirt of mine with the logo „Life is better in sneakers“, skinny jeans and of course the sneakers. Those sneakers actually have a story by themselves – produced by the Giuliano Gudman designer, they are a unique piece.

Enjoying the wonderful weather in Bulgaria

I am in my home country Bulgaria for a week now and I am enjoying the really wonderful weather here – one that feels more like summer rather than autumn. So, I still got the chance to wear some of my summer outfits – for example like this, one of my favorite – a long off shoulder tunic, in pale pink which is trendy also for autumn and winter clothes, ending with an elegant lace and matched with black shorts. It combines in a great way the street style with elegance, with which I am obsessed.
