Bikinis, one-piece or something else

I always wondered which swimsuit suits me better – bikinis or a whole swimsuit. Truth be told, I never fancied being long ours in the sun, neither am I an avid swimmer – so, I have always wanted something in-between. This summer I found these fancy swim-ready top and swimming panties, who are both comfortable and looking great at the pool.

Moreover, the black and white combination has always been one of my favourites – it works great with different outfits, but it does so also for swimsuits, in a fashionway. I can’t forget to mention the black sunglasses with their trendy form, that I like very much. I hope you like it!

The mood in the city is slowly coming back

After staying home for such a long time, taking a late afternoon walk in the centre of Vienna, which is still unusually empty, feels great. I really miss the old way of life before this crisis, the streets, coffee shops and shops, full of people, but there is also beauty and delight in the calm and quiet – one can see things that previously did not stand out. Even though the city is in sort of a stand still, the spring gives it hope. And the summer is just around the corner and I already can’t wait to get my new outfits for the next season ready.

My outfit today – freestyle, comfortable and careless – an ALCOTT white sweatshirt, a pair of Patrizia Peppe skinny jeans and FILA Sneakers.

Sweater with dogtooth, short skirt and over-the-knee boots

I’m always up for the challenge of throwing together a good black and white outfit, only this time matched with bits of silver grey. When I saw this dogtooth chunky sweater, I got inspired to bring you a casual street look that works great for this season.

When it comes to sweaters, I gravitate towards purchasing a variety of styles ranging from high to low. This means I try to invest in at least a few new good sweaters each winter, that will carry me from season to season. And then I go for a handful of on-trend statement sweaters that I can style with more basic pieces to stay relevant, playful and edgy.

This trendy sweater allowed me to do just that — pairing with the short casual black skirt that I’ve had for years, one of my over-the-knee boots from Zara and one of my most favorite black fur bag that matches the fur of my grey-silver jacket . Mixed together you get a nice outfit that not only makes a statement but aligns with a modern chic monochromatic styling scheme, in a fashionway.

White and cream colored

I love wearing shades of white and cream color no matter the season and especially now to bust out in the winter… to really lighten things up.

White coats look great in all cuts and styles and because this season belongs to teddy coats I choose again one of them in white.

Why pick a white coat? Because it looks glamorous and refined, rich and sophisticated. There is something about a white coat, an all-white look in the cold season or a classic white coat on top of any colored outfit – it screams impeccable style.

But how to wear a white coat without feeling like polar bear? Some black accessories like a black bag, sunglasses or tights as accents and funky gloves always works so fabulous with a white coat. Very trendy and chic.

Here I’m sharing one of my favorite winter white cream outfit – a MONKI coat, cardigan, skirt and sweater, a pair of white Fila sneakers, Calzedonia tights and a Christian Dior bag.

Love Carinthia

Carinthia (in german „Kärnten“) is one of my favourite parts of Austria, no matter the season, each has its own beauty. 

Every time we come around with my family, we visit the Maltatal waterfall – it’s a 220 meter tall drop, in such being the tallest one in all of Carinthia. It is situated in the Malta valley and around 10km from the city of Gmund, which by itself is another place I am always eager to visit.

In Gmund one can find the Porsche museum, but my pictures today are from an oldsmobile garage just outside of town, where I noticed this old rusty Mercedes in front. The view of it brought me back to my youth years, when my grandfather had one just like that, and it was the first and only one in our town at the time. It threw me really deep back in my memories – time flies by so fast…

My outfit today is once more casual and fit for the windy weather – all black and white – a black super comfortable Michael Kors hoodie and sock boots, faux fur Calzedonia leggings, a Pull & Bear belly bag, New Yorker coat, an „Igers“ hat from ALCOTT that i love very much and warm Paco Rabanne gloves.

Variety of coat trends

The fall-Winter season 2019-2020 brings a variety of coat trends – from the most fashionable coats of the season to the coats that are out of style. Plus those that are still in fashion just because we love them so much.

The teddy bear coat, the faux fur and the oversized coat are some of the most preferred. But there are also a few other winter coats to choose from this winter like checked, plaid and dogtooth detailed. Yes, this winter brought us a bunch of chic and sophisticated coats you can wear. And another bunch of cosy coats that will put you in the Christmas mood the moment you snuggle in or place them around your shoulders. All you need to do now is to find yours.

Today I choose a checkered coat with a simple oversized white soft shirt, a short black skirt to emphasise the outfit and once again my favourite over-knee boots, but this time plain ones.

Dogtooth print

It’s the trend that combines two true loves – pets and prints – yes, it’s dogtooth. First seen in Scotland back in the 1800s, it has been a wardrobe favourite which had its ups and downs through the years – but I’m pretty happy that it’s back again. 

From all the black and white prints that I love, dogtooth is definitely one of my favourites. These dogtooth trousers from Calzedonia have been in my wardrobe for a while, but I have actually worn them just a handful of times – a reason might be that I was not really sure what to combine them with. Today I matched them with a black shirt featuring details with the same print – I think print with print items pair well. I find a gray coat to be a good complement to the outfit, as a black one would be too boring. I’m really digging this combo though. It has a bit of a retro feel to it, without being too gimmicky. The black boots from Zara and the Pinko bag finish the outfit as accents, in a fashionway.

Fashion is a point of view

I have always thought that it’s important to have a clear point for view of my fashion style and although my style follows the general fashion trends, i always also listen to my inner vioce and stick to my own feelings for each outfit. For me fashion does not mean to have the same handbag or pair of heels like everyone else is wearing. I love it when I see an original piece, something that’s not all over the media.

I very often pick clothes that I feel are most relevant to me, no matter the brand. I do like the famous designers and brands, but I don’t think that the exclusive and expensive is always the best. Because, as a friend of mine said recently, you can look fabulous even if you put on a potatoe sack for an outfit, as long as you wear it well, in a fashion way.

So, to make your personal fashion point of view, you have to find your own specific taste and present it in your own unique way.

In this post I wear one of my favorites color combos – black and white. For me this match follows no season and never leaves the fashion scene.

Friday night: dress casual to impress

My outfit today is not a daily one, but something different – a night-out outfit. 

The weather outside is really summertime and I would not want to stay the whole evening in a warm and uncomfortable outfit. Thats why I choose a look in which I feel well and is also fun – a sexy bra top, white blazer and transparent cycling pants. To be honest I have never been a fan of these pants, but wearing them in a proper classy way with blazer and high heels is a trendy style that I like very much.

What about you? Would you also wear cycling pants and do you have a favourite bra top with which you are more provoking and would you take a similar challenge in a fashionway?

Black is the new white

Bright or dark, black or white – quite simply both.

There are always pretty good ideas how to match black and white, but the question that always stays there is how much exactly black and how much white. My answer to this would be – as much as I feel like it at the time – in such a way that you can’t say if one is more than the other.

This outfit was provoked by this wonderful coat, which I fell in love with. But instead of going for brighter colors for the rest, so the coat can pop out, I decided to dress me all black with the single exception of the white pullover. Black does not detract brightness, it also does not oppress nor gives any negative impression, on the contrary – it can give an outfit character in an original way, namely in a fashion way.
