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.

Dreaming of a white Christmas

I always imagined Christmas with everything covered with snow, cosiness at home and the whole family gathered together. Sadly this strange year we got no snow in Vienna (as usual) and travels to meet the grandparents is out of the question due to the Covid restrictions. We also used to travel to the Alps for some skiing every year, but as it seems that will also not be possible now. But I compensate the lack of the snow white feeling by wearing white-cream outfits.

I wear all white more often in summer, but like now, when it’s very grey and cold for so long, I feel like going for something brighter. White outfits immediately make you look fresh and lift (at least for me) the mood. In order not to look like a snow hare, I added a cream jacket and shoes to the otherwise all-white cozy soft Zara trousers and shirt. Meanwhile I was not eager to wear this type of trousers as they make the legs appear wider, but they are really very comfy.

How I stay positive and calm

People ask me all the time – how do you manage to stay so positive and calm? I am usually not writing about such topics, but having in mind the whole situation with the Covid-19 virus now, I decided to lay down some words on this question.

We often look at the world and consider it as negative. That’s not surprising, because just taking a glance at the news media could make the steadiest person depressed. Or looking around and realising how often people say dumb things about each other, how some show their jealousy and hate – it happens everyday and everywhere. But calling the whole world negative would be a misjudgment. It will only cause frustration which makes you even more angry and unhappy.

If you blame others for your negative feelings, nobody would hear or know about it – it would be only you who suffers. But if you try to blame yourself for your own negative feelings, you are making a step ahead ot at least make progress. But to really stay positive stopping blaming is the wisest thing to do.

Some of the other things that make me positive are. First – I don’t take everything personally – we very often analyse every single word people say or things they do, but all that is not always personal. Second – I let my feelings out and say what I think. Our Life is basically one challenge after the other and very often we keep our feelings “in a safe place” – inside ourselves. I try to not keep inside feelings like anger, frustration and anxiety on one side and joy, happiness, loveliness, etc. on the other. Third – I learned to be grateful about everything, good or bad, because even from the bad you can learn good lessons. And last but not least – if you want to be positive don’t stay on the same spot for too long and constantly work on yourself and follow your dreams, because if you do, you know that you have a chance to improve your life. And to me, that’s the best use of my time and energy. Also never forget to give your love even to people that don’t like you.

At the end I want to share this great quote: “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”/Napoleon Hill/ – doing small things in the right direction, will for sure make you feel better.

Just a few words about the outfit that goes with this post – a sweater in one of the 2020 colors – blue, combined with white and black, matched with one of my favorite Calzedonia faux fur leggings, Michael Kors booties, trendy black sunglasses and a Diana&Co Firenze Italian bag

My favorite Mickey makes me always happy

When I found this cool Iceberg sweater I had to immediately make a full outfit with it. I have put in it the two things that I love the most – my favorite hero Mickey Mouse and the combination of black and white.

I matched this sweet top with a pair of black Calzedonia faux fur Leggings, Michael Kors Olympia textile sock booties, a black Parka coat and a fluffy, soft, black and white Chanel bag. Meanwhile when I put on those booties for the first time, I had a feeling they are huge and way too sporty (due to the big sole) – but in reality they are extremely light and unbelievably comfortable. I am wearing them most the time now (you are likely to see them in my further outfits).

It may sound strange, but always when I‘m wearing my favorite Minnie or Mickey Mouse, I‘m feeling like a happy kid enjoying his ice-cream or chocolate.

So who is your favorite character, which you would wear a clothing item with?

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.
