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.

Wear colors that make you happy

As you might have noticed, pink and all tones of pink are some of my favorite colors, colors that make my mood „sweet“ and it’s only natural for me to combine them in my spring outfits.

Many women don’t dare to combine hot powerful pink, but I do and I want to show you today 2 ways of matching this stylish Versace Collection skirt. This wonderful pink piece is very versatile – on one hand I chose a cream white silk Shirt to make an elegant formal business outfit and on the other hand a casual smiley T-shirt. For both looks I kept the same accessories – a small black Valentino bag just big enough to fit the most important women’s things and a pair of block heeled summer shoes in this fresh palette.

So, wear your happy colors and be creative in a fashion way!

Take your time for things that make you feel alive

As the corona measures are getting more and more relaxed, I am feeling like living again and waiting for the hot summer. With this heightened mood I went over all my shoes, hoping the main problem this summer will be choosing which ones to wear when going out… just kidding, of course. I am the kind of woman who starts building her outfits from the shoes on, as I am a big shoe-lover. I consider that the choice of shoes define my silhouette and I am convinced about that – for example my husband told me that when we first met, the first thing he noticed were my legs and my shoes, then everything else :).

Although the shoes and the bag are considered as „accessories“, for me their role is more important and I never get tired of choosing and changing them regularly. So, shoes, shoes and more shoes… I am dreaming of an incredible shoe collection, in a fashion way. What about you? What type are you – do you match you shoes to your outfit, or the outfits to your shoes?

What a lovely day

Have you thought what you should do to make your days really lovely – no matter if they are sunny or cloudy, bad or good. In the past I was not doing too much about it, but lately i put more effort into that, because i found out that even small and seemingly unimportant things that i never noticed at before, can make my day better. Here are some of my small „lovely“ secrets and tips:

  1. Drink a good tea or coffee
  2. Listen to nice music
  3. Say please and thank you
  4. Smile and laugh more
  5. Show my love
  6. Listen to others
  7. Give compliments
  8. Wish others a lovely day
  9. Cook or bake for the loved ones
  10. Give away old things
  11. Eat the dessert first
  12. Wear perfume
  13. Wear something that makes me feel good in a fashion way

Because lovely days don’t come to you, you should walk to them, so make your own list!

My outfit today is with one of my lovely shirts, a trendy coloured Monki skirt and jacket, a silver rainbow bag and Nike Air Max sneakers.

Decide to shine wherever you are

My approach to making my outfits has always been in the line of „Do not be afraid of looking nice and shine, no matter where you go“. Be it when you are out to a shop nearby, to a party, to the mountains, in the park or even when out for a walk somewhere where no one will see you – always look good. Critique and opinions of others often hold us back, albeit sometimes we should take pieces of it – the ones that have that kernel of truth.

Always refuse to be placed in a niche – you can and should have an impact on the world around you with your brilliance. Shine without waiting or asking for permission. And encourage yourself – every day wear something that brings you satisfaction and joy. You have to recharge yourself and keep being a light for the people around you. Do what the voice within is telling you – you might not always be sure where it will lead, but do it anyway. It is likely leading to glory. Believe in and know yourself – take your brilliance wherever you go!

I intentionally made the photos today around some rocks in the gardens of the Schönbrunn palace – I wanted to show you that even on dark rocky place and with simple clothes you can shine! For this purpose I chose a neon long sleeves shirt matched with a black T-Shirt patterned with „influencer“ words in the same color, simple middle length jeans and LV sneakers.

So, be confident and Shine wherever you are, in your own fashionway!

Saying „No, thank you“ to negative energy

Considering the situation in the world now and the outlook for the coming months, I want to say „No, thank you“ to all the negative energy and thoughts – this is my favorite slogan for the moment – do you have one of your own? Because when we are healthy that is enough to think positive and look optimistically towards the future. I know we hear this all the time, but that is indeed the essence of things.

In that context my outfit today is also a kind of a „No, thank you“ message to all the things that are negative. It is with one of my official coronavirus pieces – a cool hoodie – for the times when someone tries to come closer and shake my hand for example – no thank you! 

And as it happens pretty often lately I am in pink again, matched with black – two favourite colors. A pink Zara sweatshirt, a black Pimkie skirt, Calzedonia tights and socks, Michael Kors sneakers and a Victoria‘s Secret bag.

Taking in the fresh air of spring

The sweet breeze outside will put a smile on your face and make you enjoy your day. It always amazes me, how, just taking a walk outside instead of being online all day can make you feel as happy as only nature can. Especially these days, having that part of your day, when you just do nothing, is really important. I need to clear my mind to be productive and there are many ways to do so – meditating for example or just relaxing and having a coffee are some of my favorites.

Today’s outfit is in the trendy pastel violet. The skinny jeans with the sweet glittering hearts are combined with Bugatti sneakers, a tiny bag and Michael Kors sunglasses.

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

Pretty with pink

Pink – right now a color with all sorts of trendy connotations. Pale pink, normal pink , girly pink, piggie pink, neon pink, millennial pink – for some time now almost all I see is pink. Millennial pink, to be more precise. It has come to a point where I’m starting to somehow like it. Maybe I’ve become infected?

As I have found out, millennial pink is the color of millennials. Come to think of it, I would say that the clues were there all along. Pink as a little girl, pink in my teens and now – pink everywhere around me and especially on Instagram – nevertheless I never got tired of it and love it all the same.

Contrary to the piggy and girly pink of the recent ears, the millennial pink is a pastel tone with a touch of peach and a slight salmon shade. 

The pink, being millennial or other type, I like wearing in any combination, but never being dressed fully in pink like a big pink candy. I like combining this sweet color with some other colors – for instance with white like here and accented accessories. I choose the jeans ones, namely jeans over-knee boots and a jeans bag. 

As you already know, I love animals and for this shoot a dog of a friend of mine posed together with me – of course also dressed in a trendy millennial pink jacket. We looked so well together that people who saw us came to us asking for which media we are making the shoot, so I even had to sign some cards :).

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.
