Have a holly jolly Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great and feeling super festive! I can’t believe that Christmas is already here… So exciting! In line with the festive mood, I want to share this post called „Have a holly jolly Christmas“, just as my outfit here says.

It’s the most magical time of the year and I guess you already have your Christmas tree and some festive plans coming up. For me, I always linked these holidays to the tree decoration, the family comfort and the Christmas mood.

So, I wish you for this Christmas Eve lots of wonderful moments with your family and/or friends, and may it bring joy to your hearts and happiness to your home!

Double chocolate and then add some kiss

In Vienna, when the weather refuses to cooperate, you can always go inside – either shopping, or like me here – in one of the best traditional chocolate and cakes coffee house – Gerstner. I like to eat there a strudel and drink a melange, especially during the Christmas holidays when the mood inside is so unique. I adore this old style beauty you can see in the photos.

With the most beautiful holidays of the year just around the corner, I cannot resist the pieces of art they have here, so beautifully packed as presents. 

In the glamour of this pastry shop, I continue the silver glitter trend from my previous posts – my outfit consists of silver Calzedonia leggings, a black oversized sweater, a cute short gray cape and black booties also with a silver touch.

And to all of you, for the coming Christmas, I wish you a double chocolate and then add some kiss.

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.

Silver is trend for this season

I would have never dreamt of wearing anything in silver color, (other than jewellery of course!) if it was not for my blog. But it is my blog that often makes me challenge my own style and comfort level and then only later I begin to like those new styles.

So, as the silver glitter is quite impressive, not only for Christmas decoration but also especially when it comes to accessories and jackets this season, it deeply inspired me. It definitely steals the attention, and the silver clothes are a good option not only for a formal evening out but also you can wear it in more casual combinations, with jeans, pants or casual skirts for example.

I hope you liked my outfit today, especially my silver color jacket and „Primadona“ sneakers. I find the black funky skirt and the black sweater with a silver tiger to match the rest of the outfit nicely. The finish of it all are the Calzedonia silver-shiny tights which I really adore.

Don’t be afraid to choose silver and shine bright like a diamond, in a fashion way!

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.
