Long dress crochet pattern

The summer months are a great time to enjoy the beach wearing our favourite „must-haves“. Some of the things we need are nice bikini sets, a sun hat, sunglasses, etc., but for for me a must have is also a cover-up, or a light long cloth like summer tunics, caftans, thin dresses.

With the wide, billowy sleeves and the draped, airy fit, this garment fits and flatters every body type. Not to mention, the loose cut also keeps you cool on warm days and balmy nights.

Such is my crochet style white tunic from Zara today – it helps protect me from the sun while makes me feel elegant even on the beach. Of course I combined it with a Calzedonia bikini set – a black one, because I love combining black and white. The sunglasses I chose are from Michael Kors.

White, cream white and pastel

I like playing with colors and matching closely similar colors – the mix of white color with cream and pastel is unusual, but eye-catching and modern.

It is the changing spring/summer weather that motivated me to make this outfit. A nice white top is always classy and of course, matched with jeans, even double classy. I found this pastel jeans at Pimkie and and the top at Zara. I topped this classy combination with a cream H&M summer blazer. The gentle hint coming from the cute black MONKI bag, matched with the black&white shoes, balances the whole outfit in a fashionway.

Invest in black and white

These spring/summer days, when all the shops and websites offer you a palette of sweet, candy colors, we think that our wardrobe will be the most colorful this season. Nevertheless, don’t forget that every now and then, black and white remains a classic and it always works well when you make your choice in the right cuts.

So, when in doubt, wear black and white – a black-white fashion trend is not really a trend. On the contrary – this combination always looks good and is eternal – so it’s worth to invest in, no matter if the pieces are basic or with prints. Today I decided to show you both – a basic black MONKI jeans dress with a black and white Michael Kors printed blazer. Although the weather looks already sunny and warm now, a thin blazer always comes in handy. And such a basic jeans dress is also always useful – you can wear it with or without a T-Shirt and also with leggings when the days are cold – I just love such multifunctional pieces. The shoes I choose are also multifunctional and for all seasons, with matching black and white MK print. The whole outfit I topped with a black Tally Weijl belly bag.

White on white

The white on white look is one of my favorite trends. It is so versatile and stylish that you should not miss out on making one yourself. Here I made a winter one to inspire you.

I have a selection of jackets that I rotate throughout the winter and this simple white piece is one that I wear with great pleasure. I paired it with a nice classic white hoodie dress in almost same color. I like the oversized sweater and hoodie dress trend because you don’t have to think about matching the bottoms. But only white pieces are not enough to make your look great – don’t forget appropriate complementing accessories – a they always make you look outstanding.

I had to choose between my black and white Michael Kors boots and the all white Bershka ones, eventually going for the latter, combining them with funky Calzedonia tights. Personally, when making a one-color outfit I love to make it a little bit sexy in order to avoid being boring and here the tights make their best.

If you want shoes, bags, and jewelry to match with your white outfit, then I recommend going for lighter shades of classic hues. You can, for instance, try on white like me, grey, nude, silver and gold.

To complete the outfit I topped it with my black and white J‘ADIOR bag, in a fashionway.

Oversized overshirt

I love jackets, coats and shackets and I now added also overshirts to that list. Those used to be something for men to wear, but this lightweight jacket trend seems to have moved over to women’s wardrobes too nowadays. It surely comes out to be a good first early-spring purchase.

Overshirt jackets are the trend you can see almost everywhere right now – it’s just about finding the right one in the right color, if you like this style. With nice big bright checks or in plain color, an overshirt jacket, with or without a collar will work on top of everything you currently have and will give you a fresh update in your wardrobe.

I found one of mine in Zara – a black and white wool blend checkered shirt with big pockets. Honestly I did not expect it to be so comfortable and warm for such a type of jacket. I combined it with a white Bershka hoodie, black faux leather Calzedonia pants, white Bershka block heel booties and a black and white bag. More or less the whole outfit is styled in black and white. This look proves that a black and white combination does not need to be boring.

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.
