Pink passion

Wear pink. Supposedly it can encourage affection and love. It’s also a color that makes you feel sweet. It’s how I feel about it, but in addition to that I am also a little bit addicted to this color. That’s why almost every second outfit this summer has something with pink.

Today again it is all in pink – in this sweet summer pink Zara dress, light and comfortable not only for the beach but also when going out. I topped the dress with a pair of silver shoes and a cute Kenzo bag.

1st of July

First of July – new day, new month, new hope… Some may say July morning is special morning and first of July is a special day but for me when it’s summer every day is wonderful. My pictures today are taken at my home – it is so wonderful to wake up and enjoy the home and family, to feel the smell of the nature and jump in the pool. With my family we waited very long to have our own house, made everything with love and I love every place in it and I enjoy every moment staying at home.

Today I decided to show you a simple, comfy outfit in a batik style which I like very much – just a T-Shirt, shorts (which I found in Bershka), sneakers and a pink shopper bag. I made this outfit with three different sneakers as I was not sure which ones fitted the best – a pair of white Nike sneakers, pale pink Adidas and white simple ones. And because in the last days the weather in Vienna is a bit chilly again my oversized white jeans Zara shirt fits perfectly.

Mint green with black

We’ve seen many different green hues this spring/summer season, but there’s one different and unique green – the pastel mint green. Looking pastel and creamy, the mint green is definitely one of the most special one in the green palette.

While there is nothing new about pastels in spring, the mint green color during the spring 2021 runways felt fresh as ever. After several seasons filled with neon colors, the muted green was really a welcome sight. Mint, aquamarine, avocado, pistachio, moss or laurel – whichever name you choose, this fashion color are on trend this spring/summer.

To be honest, the mint green color is charming, looks comfortable and matches well with many different occasions. Here I have rounded up an outfit with it – the main color is black, with the green as secondary. A Zara oversized shacket jeans shirt, short black Calzedonia biker leggings with a black Zara top, Michael Kors shoes, an eye-catching glittering Bershka belly bag and black sunglasses.

Summer vibes with a lovely salmon pink dress

Honestly I have many dresses in my wardrobe and wear them only when the occasion demands it  – I usually prefer to wear casual comfortable outfits, but this salmon dress I fell in love with. It’s perfect for summer events when you want to have a stylish and sophisticated look, but also works great for everyday use because of being both short and long (at least from one side) at the same time. 

So, when in doubt if to choose a middle long or a short fairy dress for the summer just pick up such a 2-in-1 solution – it’s really practical but meanwhile eye catching, believe me.

I love dresses that are thin and delicate and this piece gives me exactly this feeling. The fit of this dress is between a fit and flare and shift dress. I think the overall shape is so flattering. I kept my jewellery, shoes, and clutch minimal and neutral to really let the beauty of the dress shine.

In addition the salmon color itself brings thoughts of the sea, sand and the salty breeze, which brings great summer vibes, in a fashionway.

A cardigan is always a loved piece

As the weather in may still varies a lot, a light cardigan is always a good piece to have around. But being very comfortable, a cardigan can also be very tricky and can easily ruin our outfit – that’s why you should know how to wear it without looking funny and frumpy.

The first thing is to figure out the style and length of the cardigan that fits best your body type. As with everything else about fashion, women’s bodes are different, so certain styles would be more flattering on some than others. That’s why you should learn what works best for your own body.

And it’s good to wear form-fitting clothes underneath a cardigan, or tight or belted dresses. Especially if the cardigan is a bit slouchy, you have to make sure the silhouette underneath it is form-fitting, otherwise you might look larger than you are.

The next thing to pay attention to is the fit of the arms – my favourites are the ones that have skinnier arms and feel the most slimming.

Also, feel free to show some skin – especially when most of the rest of your body is covered up. It’s more about what you put under your cardigan than the style of the cardigan itself. For example – if you combine with a turtleneck top – choose a sleeveless one, with open shoulders or collar bones. If you wear a normal shirt don’t cover the neckline with a scarf – show some skin instead.

In all that you should still pay attention to the current trends – right now, open cardigans are pretty hot – with holes, semi-transparent and with a different length on both sides.

I chose a holed pale pink cardigan, matched it with a black sleeveless turtleneck top underneath and skinny jeans. Of course, I can’t miss the accessories because they complete the outfit – a long necklace and earrings with a matching bracelet, sunglasses and a bag and shoes with the same colors and details.

That’s me

My blog is really all about me and my style, not just photography work. When It started back in 2018 it was just an idea. With time I got more and more into the blogger „story“. I never aimed to be like the other bloggers – I just wanted to show and be myself in my posts.

Maybe sometimes the articles are too short, but I do not want people to read long texts, so I always try to stay to the point and be short – that’s me.

Maybe I often talk about similar or same colors – I have some favourites (like pink for example) and pick them often, even if they are not trendy and fashionable right now – that’s me.

I might be too casual too often, as I like simple, casual, comfortable street style outfits – but that’s me.

At the same time I might also often be too eye-catching – even with simple clothes because I try to never become boring – but that’s me.

Even though my hairdresser constantly asks me to make a change – I like my hair style and I tend to stick to it – straight with nothing more than a small plait – but that’s me.

Some tell me they prefer natural nails with maybe just nail polish, but I really like my nails to be like a piece of art – but that’s me.

Maybe very often I wear jeans or leggings, with a simple top or shirt with sneakers – but that’s me – I like this style. Such is my outfit also today – simple skinny Zara jeans, white Bugatti sneakers, a white top with an accenting transparent MONKI shirt (of course in pink), a sleeveless jeans jacket and a black-pink Victoria’s Secret bag, all of it matched in my „that’s me“ fashionway.

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?

Love animals

When I saw this huge painting of a dog on that dark building, I just could not resist to use it as a background for my post. Not just because I love animals, but also because this commercial is not like every other simple one you see everywhere. I myself have three animals at home – three rescued street cats, which I love very much. If I had the possibility I would adopt even more, as I feel that each such animal is a rescued life. Thats why I appeal to everyone who wants an animal at home not to buy them but to adopt if possible.

And as the weather is still cold and grey , my look today is in similar mood and tones – a grey velvet Zara skirt, matched with a trendy colored sweater, a warm black Just Cavalli jacket, a pair of super comfortable Air-cooled memory foam Skechers sneakers and one of my favorite Versace Jeans bags.

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.
