Spring outfit with knitted overall

With the temperatures increasing a little bit down here in Vienna, my excitement about the coming spring makes me wish to start choosing light clothes, but it is not really warm enough to switch to the spring pieces. As much as I want to start stashing away the winter sweaters and tops, the fresh weather right now gave me the chance to put on this brown knitted Zara overall. It is still a great choice for the early spring – keeps you warm while giving you the opportunity to show some legs. Moreover such knitted pieces like shorts, cropped tops, overalls, etc. are very trendy.

I matched my overall with a black turtleneck body and black accessories – a cute MONKI bag, black gloves, Pimkie boots and topped it with a white teddy coat in a fashionway.

Jeans shirt with slouchy high waist jeans

Do you have the feeling that in these crazy Corona times we are less and less motivated to dress up well enough? Our old lifestyle has gone and with it the desire to look good. The few times when we do go out, it is for shopping (as much as shops are open right now), or maybe for a small walk, and then we just put on whatever we find quick with the idea that there is anyway no-one that will see us, moreover with a mask. Still, we should take care of our looks, at least because it gives us some so-needed self-confidence.

Here’s one comfortable look from me today. If you are wondering how to combine a jeans shirt in winter – it’s easy – a good sweater on top and jeans for the bottom match perfectly. A classic sweater with collar look. The one I have on, is a Pimkie cream cable sweater with shoulder details. As for the jeans I chose these trendy slouchy high waist ones also from Pimkie, that being so unorthodox are still very comfortable. The whole outfit I topped with a short beige MONKI jacket, brown velvet Zara boots, whose color works very well as an accent and a black Zara 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.

Jeans forever

No matter time of the year or the year itself, jeans are always in season.

I have vivid memories of my childhood how different the jeans were – classic or special, stonewashed, high-waisted with a button-fly, bride or loose tapered legs. And as the fashion tends to come back after some years, now we have the high waisted jeans back, just like in the old times.

I found those 80‘s skinny, slim fit, high waisted jeans in horizon blue by Zara and almost felt the fashion from the times of my mother. There is one small difference though – in the past, when my grandma saw a cut or a hole in my jeans, first thing she said was it needs to be patched – now those are made intentional and fashionable.

I matched them with my favourite black – a black stretched Zara body, a black Michael Kors blazer, black boots and as a final touch a cute brown bag from MONKI with a brown Gucci belt. All in all a casual outfit, matched in a fashionway.

Dressing room in a fashionway

I have always dreamed of a dedicated dressing room space and now, in our new house, it is slowly becoming a reality. I decided to have the furniture in a modern white finish, which I find perfect for storing clothes and accessories – towers with shelves, hang areas, drawers, open shelving as well as shoe and bag shelving. It is still a work in progress, so follow my posts for updates…

Once everything is installed, I am going to work on filling my room – shoes and folded items, like sweaters and jeans stored in the open shelving, long dresses and pants I will 
place on the hanging rod; and my most frequently used fall-winter outwear I will move to the center of my closet for quick and easy access.

The all-so-needed black-and-white dog-tooth armchair is already in place. At the end I’ll put the finishing touches on my new space by adding a nice white bench, a rug, and some cute decorations amidst my accessories, in a fashionway.

Cute dress and casual plain boots

A pair of boots are year-round wardrobe staples both for warmer or cold months – from classic white boots to the over the knee ones. Such are the timeless combat boots – a season-less pair which work with any outfit – even with a nice dress.

I have always considered that a nice black dress matches in the best way with heels but depending on the occasion it can work great with boots too. As I am so much in love with my super comfortable MONKI black boots (that I featured in an earlier sports outfit post), this time I rounded up another style of outfit with a black Zara flounce, volan dress of course in a fashion way.

There’s nothing like a pair of chunky black boots to add some edge to a cute dress.

The boots season has arrived

At fall-winter time I love comfort in choosing the shoes but always combined with femininity when making the outfits. This pair of MONKI Boots are one of my must-haves for cold days and I am really in love with them. In any case a leather look jacket is a choice that fits to most of my outfits, and another must-have. As a black lover, today I made my look all in black – black short Zara top, leather look Calzedonia cycling shorts, Pull & Bear black leather look jacket, MONKI black boots and a little cute black H&M bag.

But, no matter the choice of color, let your light shine in a fashionway!

What makes me different makes me beautiful

I have many favourite quotes, but this one from Coco Chanel is in my top ten: „Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself“. That said, I have always believed that being yourself is priceless and it’s what makes you beautiful.

Of course we still have to follow all trends, news and the fashion in general in order to be up to date. But the fashion world is like an endless ocean we must learn to swim in, every season, year, month, week and day.

And what best to fit the winter season than the white, even when it blends into the snow around us. It goes even better with a pair of black boots and fluffy coat, to achieve the always trendy black and white combination. Though high heel boots are not typical for the real snowy winter I like them very much and they make me feel elegant in this outfit, because elegance is not only standing out, but being remembered.

So be you, be different, be yourself!

Happy and pretty

There are so many estimations about how many hours women spend for shopping and clothing, but honestly I find this to be one of the activities I tend to enjoy too :). I think so, because a real woman or a pretty girl should stick to what makes her happy – be it shopping, clothing or just walking on the street while making heads turn, as things in life are easier and enjoyable only when you yourself are satisfied with your day.

I have always tried to be a „pretty woman“, but never following all the requirements and standards of „being pretty“. The „frames“ make me uncomfortable and standards alone are not enough to make you outstanding. To look nice for me does not only mean that you choose the nicest clothes you have, but also finding what your soul desires to feel beautiful and attractive. So, my mood today was a shopping one – going and searching what the latest designer labels are offering.

By the way I have never been too fond of snake prints – it’s not my favourite, but it does have a great sense of style and brings one more level of variety in my closet, reclaiming its territory in 2018, and still being up to date in 2019. Pairing snake accessories is always tricky, but black always matches very well. Both the outfit and the shopping itself made my day.

So what makes YOU feel happy and pretty?

White boots inspiration

From summer to winter, white continues to be the ultimate fashion color for shoes and there is no sign of slowing down.

Before getting into the details of this outfit, I’m going to be completely honest and tell you that I hated to wear white boots, so when I first saw those I thought they are too chic and not my style. Just as it happens with other styles that look strange at first, but later catch up to be trendy, so it happened to me with this one – the white boots are different and strange, but I liked them so much that I wanted to have them on my legs as soon as possible. And although I do like real leather shoes, thees were the best less-expensive non-leather alternative I could find and I was not about to invest in something super expensive just like that.

Of course afterwards came the question what to combine them with in an outfit – especially considering I was still a bit unsure how I felt about it. The outfit you see here is probably the 5th attempt at styling it, but it’s the one I liked the most when pieced together. The idea was to stay pretty simple with the rest of the outfit and let the boots do the talking, but of course without trying too hard. And I think the white poncho and boots combination looks really cool – by the way I like the black leggings a lot better than a pair of denim jeans.

So, I know this style is maybe not be a typical casual, streetstyle outfit, but I’m sure some of you might also like it as a white solution for the white winter. And if you’ve also been trying to style white boots as well, then take the challenge and try something similar on and see what you think! Let me know!
