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 cup of good vibes

No matter which day of the week it is, for me it starts with the little things that make me happy – it makes a big difference for my overall mood throughout the day. Even a little cup of coffee or a good song could make my soul smiling. And it’s really important in our hectic life to have a few things we could do, that make us feel better, be more positive about ourselves and just life in general 🙂

It could be reading a book, meditate, go to a café and order your favourite coffee, watch a movie, draw a painting, listen to good music, write, etc.

As for me one of my little delights is having a little cup of good coffee (or tea) while making plans for the day, of course in fashion way. Such is today’s morning while sharing this with you – with a cup of coffee in my hand, good vibes in my head. All that with some the yellow tones, to match the rising sun 🙂

Love Carinthia

Carinthia (in german „Kärnten“) is one of my favourite parts of Austria, no matter the season, each has its own beauty. 

Every time we come around with my family, we visit the Maltatal waterfall – it’s a 220 meter tall drop, in such being the tallest one in all of Carinthia. It is situated in the Malta valley and around 10km from the city of Gmund, which by itself is another place I am always eager to visit.

In Gmund one can find the Porsche museum, but my pictures today are from an oldsmobile garage just outside of town, where I noticed this old rusty Mercedes in front. The view of it brought me back to my youth years, when my grandfather had one just like that, and it was the first and only one in our town at the time. It threw me really deep back in my memories – time flies by so fast…

My outfit today is once more casual and fit for the windy weather – all black and white – a black super comfortable Michael Kors hoodie and sock boots, faux fur Calzedonia leggings, a Pull & Bear belly bag, New Yorker coat, an „Igers“ hat from ALCOTT that i love very much and warm Paco Rabanne gloves.

Lake Millstatt – where mountain and lake dreams come true

Lake Millstatt – a place that I have visited so many times and a place where I can switch off and just chill. It is a dream location where the snowy Alps meets the calm deep waters of the lake – a sight to marvel both in summer and in winter. 

Coincidently being the first place to visit in this new year, I take it’s beauty as a way to charge myself for all the things I plan to achieve in the next months. 

To match the surrounding Alps, my outfit today is in a light mountain style – a winter ALCOTT sweater with mountain details, a matching jacket, Calzedonia leggings, lovely red winter ALCOTT socks, Tanca booties and bag and trendy black sunglasses. 

From Wikipedia

It is situated at 588 metres above the Adriatic (1,929 ft), north of the Drava Valley within the Gurktal Alps (Nock Mountains) range of the Central Eastern Alps, near the town of Spittal an der Drau. With a surface area of 13.3 km2 (5.1 sq mi) Lake Millstatt is the second largest lake of Carinthia (after Lake Wörth), though with a depth of 142 m (466 ft) the most voluminous by far.

Its steep shore gives the lake a fjord-like character. The Millstätter Alpe mountains in the north up to 2,100 m (6,900 ft) protect it from cold winds, so the water temperature can reach 25 °C (77 °F) in summer. The narrow and long surface stretches over 12 km (7.5 mi) from east to west. In the south the wooded Hochgosch plateau, with a breadth of 2 km (1.2 mi) and an elevation of 876 m (2,874 ft), divides the lake from the parallel Drava Valley.

The name derives from the market town Millstatt on the northern shore. Other municipalities near the lake are Seeboden and Radenthein-Döbriach. The shaded southern shore, a protected area since 1970, is almost uninhabited.

Is it possible to look stylish with cycling pants?

Why cycling shorts are a hit lately? How could you wear them? Are they only for sport? I try to answer theese questions in this post.

First of all – they are very comfortable – dividing the lycra-clad and the lycra-averse these pants are a triumph of practicality over style and meanwhile chick, cool and are enchancing the shape of the leg. Secondly, they are not just for sport – you can make different outfits even combined with a formal blazer.

A famous example of a celebrity who liked to wear them is Princess Diana – already 30 years ago she started the trend that is reappearing today. Also promis like Hailey Baldwin, Kim Kardashian, and Bella Hadid started often sporting them and photos in that style are all over the fashion blogs.

Don’t be afraid to match stretching, tight-fitting cycling pants with blousons, hoodies, jumpers, sweatshirts, etc, so you can feel comfortable not only in a casual, but also in an elegant way.

Here I matched one of my favorite black pants with a pale pink Chanel blazer. Surely the nice shoes and the bag will only make the outfit nicer, of course in a fashion way.

A classy fabulous orchid dress

We are always on the go, and often it’s hard to keep up with the latest looks and trends. But a fairy, thin, floral dress is an option just waiting to jump into your closet. This Kiara Fashion dress is the look that will take you from blah to bold, to classy and fabulous.
With such a dress you can find the right way to rock your personal style with class. I’m not a fan of glaring outfits, but this one in particular hits the sweet spot between being too chic and simple. I always liked Orchids and this dress warmed my heart, in a fashion way

Believe in yourself

No matter what happens in the outside world, as long as you have faith in yourself, no darkness can touch you!” – Mehmet Murat ildan

Today I decided to share with you something that’s not just a fashion article but one that is more personal about me.

Some years ago, there was a time when the lack of belief in myself was a big factor in my life. I was not pursuing anything that I wanted to, because I didn’t think I could. Sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself, especially if you feel like you have something to offer but don’t know how to present it and are reluctant to do it because you’re afraid what people will tell you.

But as the time goes by I have learned that it’s completely fine to try, even if I fail, and to put myself out there and be imperfect, because everyone is worthy and capable to do something they believe in.

I try to set goals for myself and meet those goals. Once I make a goal, I work hard to achieve it. My education and previous work history were very different, but inside my dreams have always been drawing me to fashion.

Staying positive and learning from my failures made me think in the right direction. So, if you did something wrong, embrace it, because you’ll have an easier time to know what is right from wrong.

Today’s post is a challenge for me, too – before I never believed enough in myself and my figure to make a photoshoot in underwear (here in one of my favorite brands “Intimissimi”) – but as you can see I did, because I managed to overcome those concerns in a fashionway.

So, just believe in yourself and follow your dreams! 🙂

Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are” – Stephanie Lahart

Still trying to gather some summer feeling

As the summer nears its end we start to miss the sunny days. But don’t regret it because it’s over, smile, as this is how the world works – a new season with it’s new opportunities is coming.

And most importantly try to be happy, because „People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.“ — Anton Chekhov

I am trying to do the same by enjoying the sunny days, still dressed with my summer clothes, wearing this beautiful Intimissimi body. It is one of my absolutely favorites, matches almost everything, even with a blazer in the autumn.

Not dreaming of the 100k, but following my dreams

Years ago my view about the purpose of my life and work left me feeling hungry for a fresh start. I was ready for a little effervescence and so I followed the passion that I ever wanted to – the fashion.

So, now, after many years working in the fashion world I finally found my real place… Nowadays I‘m no longer dreaming of those „100k“ (or more) likes, I just want to keep presenting you my fashion views and ideas, trying to be of as much help as possible, of course always in fashion way 😊. But don’t forget – most important thing is – learn, collect ideas, follow others but always stay true to you and be yourself.

How do we wear a bodysuit?

In the same way like the one-piece swimsuit the bodysuit is also one of my favorite. This one-piece wonder offers support, flexibility and a variety of styling options from professional to downright sexy looking. But why and how do you wear one?

Bodysuits are one-piece garments, similar to a leotards made from the finest nylon tricot that come in a range of styles from long sleeved and blousey to spaghetti strapped, cut-off and skintight ones. They function as any shirt would (except a crop top). Most bodysuits also provide tension from the shoulders to the crotch to help play up your curves, especially with low-cut necklines. They basically lift you up and work as the perfect base layer for any outfit! Bodysuits could be worn almost with everything – skirts, pants, shorts and jeans – any bottom you can think of. Styling a bodysuit can range from casual, sexy street style, to a professional glamorous look.

When going casual, think simple styles in stretchy fabrics to make an eye-catching look. Simple tank top bodysuits (with some fun details like an open back or lacing up the sides) look great paired with denim shorts, jogger pants or distressed jeans. And the best choice for shoes are some sneakers or a low block heels.

I choose a silver, shiny off-the-shoulder, cut-out to the chase bodysuit with open back matched with black shorts and block heels.

So, what is your favorite? If you don’t have one go and look for it – it is a great piece to incorporate into your wardrobe, in a fashion way.
