A cup of good vibes

No matter which day of the week it is, for me it starts with the little things that make me happy – it makes a big difference for my overall mood throughout the day. Even a little cup of coffee or a good song could make my soul smiling. And it’s really important in our hectic life to have a few things we could do, that make us feel better, be more positive about ourselves and just life in general 🙂

It could be reading a book, meditate, go to a café and order your favourite coffee, watch a movie, draw a painting, listen to good music, write, etc.

As for me one of my little delights is having a little cup of good coffee (or tea) while making plans for the day, of course in fashion way. Such is today’s morning while sharing this with you – with a cup of coffee in my hand, good vibes in my head. All that with some the yellow tones, to match the rising sun 🙂

Chocolate love?

Give me some chocolate and the world feels sweet again – it is one of the best sins on this earth. People who know me will tell you that I do not like chocolate that much, but in the rare occasions when I eat it I know how to enjoy it fully.

I do try to eat healthy, but honestly some chocolate from time to time would not hurt, especially if it’s of exceptional Belgian quality – like the one from the Chocolatier Neuhaus. I also like it when it takes the form of small gestures, like a gift for example, as such that can touch anyone’s heart.

I love to love, I love chocolate, but my biggest love stays with fashion. In line with that I have to mention the accessories I’m wearing today – a MONKI chocolate-colored teddy cat bag combined with a pair of cutie cat Colloseum socks, sweet pink candy Colloseum shoes, velvet bordeaux leggings matched with a softy sweater and a white tender Colloseum teddy coat, 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.

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.

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.

Lake Millstatt – where mountain and lake dreams come true

Lake Millstatt – a place that I have visited so many times and a place where I can switch off and just chill. It is a dream location where the snowy Alps meets the calm deep waters of the lake – a sight to marvel both in summer and in winter. 

Coincidently being the first place to visit in this new year, I take it’s beauty as a way to charge myself for all the things I plan to achieve in the next months. 

To match the surrounding Alps, my outfit today is in a light mountain style – a winter ALCOTT sweater with mountain details, a matching jacket, Calzedonia leggings, lovely red winter ALCOTT socks, Tanca booties and bag and trendy black sunglasses. 

From Wikipedia

It is situated at 588 metres above the Adriatic (1,929 ft), north of the Drava Valley within the Gurktal Alps (Nock Mountains) range of the Central Eastern Alps, near the town of Spittal an der Drau. With a surface area of 13.3 km2 (5.1 sq mi) Lake Millstatt is the second largest lake of Carinthia (after Lake Wörth), though with a depth of 142 m (466 ft) the most voluminous by far.

Its steep shore gives the lake a fjord-like character. The Millstätter Alpe mountains in the north up to 2,100 m (6,900 ft) protect it from cold winds, so the water temperature can reach 25 °C (77 °F) in summer. The narrow and long surface stretches over 12 km (7.5 mi) from east to west. In the south the wooded Hochgosch plateau, with a breadth of 2 km (1.2 mi) and an elevation of 876 m (2,874 ft), divides the lake from the parallel Drava Valley.

The name derives from the market town Millstatt on the northern shore. Other municipalities near the lake are Seeboden and Radenthein-Döbriach. The shaded southern shore, a protected area since 1970, is almost uninhabited.

The magic of the Christmas markets in Vienna

Vienna puts on her best clothes to welcome Christmas and all its guests. So many people visit Vienna for Christmas, and I think I know why – here we have one of the most wonderful street decorations in the world. All the streets are well decorated but my favourite are the chandeliers on the Graben – impressive and elegant at the same time.

But it’s not only the festive decoration on the streets that impress so much – the Christmas markets also offer a great experience. The one at Rathausplatz (the Vienna city hall) is the most visited, but there are so many others that don’t fall very much  behind. Some examples are the markets at Maria-Theresien-Platz, the one at Schloss Belvedere and Schloss Schonbrunn, the one at Karlsplatz, at Unicampus in the 9th, etc.

And although there is no snow (yet), neither are the temperatures too low, the Christmas mood is in the air. With great pleasure I walked through this market, wrapped in one of my all so favrorite teddy bear coats. Underneath I have a checked skirt and the outfit gets complete with comfortable long sock boots and a matching tiny black bag.

Happy ho ho ho to you with a Viennese punsch

You can’t be in Vienna in December and not have at least one Punsch (punch) or Glühwein (mulled wine) at a Christmas market. Glühwein is a typical Austrian drink consisting of heated red wine and spices. Punsch is a drink made of fruit juice, spices and alcohol like wine or liquor. You will be blown away by all the different Punsch available in Austria. Besides the classical Punsch, Orangenpunsch (orange punch) and Beerenpunsch (berry punch), they sell Apfelpunsch (apple punch), Eierlikörpunsch (advocaat punch), Kokospunch (coconut punch), Granatapfelpunsch (pomegranate punch) or Turbopunsch (strong alcoholic punch) and much more fancy and delicious mixtures.

So, when the scent of biscuits fills the air and you are holding a cup of hot, aromatic Punsch in your freezing hands, you know that Christmas time has arrived!

For many, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. In Austria, the offers and entertainment during the Advent time are enormous and Christmas magic can be found everywhere, especially here at the Rathausplatz (the Vienna town hall) as you can see on the photos. 

About my outfit today – a trendy shiny silver jacket, (of course) my favorite teddy styled sweater and skinny jeans. Happy HO HO HO to you, in a fashion way.

Christmas mood in Vienna

I am so happy to live for so many years in one of the most beautiful European cities – Vienna, where the magic before Christmas is so compelling. The countless lights and the glamorous decoration, all of it makes your soul realise that Christmas is coming.

I love the small local streets with their small curious shops, that seem to lead you to another world, especially in the evening. Nothing compares to that – magic is all around in the air…

As for my outfit today – I am definitely all about the teddy coats this season and I love this one in pink. It’s so fluffy and cosy, that it makes the Christmas magic mood even more magical. It is safe to say that I’ve never been wrapped up in anything warmer or cosier than this @zara outfit – fake fur trousers, black booties, coat and sweater.

No doubt, I feel like this year my coat wardrobe is consistently expanding, but my favourite one there is always the teddy coat. It’s the thing to go to with almost everything. So If you’re only looking to make a few firm outerwear investments this season, then stake your claim right now for teddy coats, of course, in a fashion way.
