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.

Oversized overshirt

I love jackets, coats and shackets and I now added also overshirts to that list. Those used to be something for men to wear, but this lightweight jacket trend seems to have moved over to women’s wardrobes too nowadays. It surely comes out to be a good first early-spring purchase.

Overshirt jackets are the trend you can see almost everywhere right now – it’s just about finding the right one in the right color, if you like this style. With nice big bright checks or in plain color, an overshirt jacket, with or without a collar will work on top of everything you currently have and will give you a fresh update in your wardrobe.

I found one of mine in Zara – a black and white wool blend checkered shirt with big pockets. Honestly I did not expect it to be so comfortable and warm for such a type of jacket. I combined it with a white Bershka hoodie, black faux leather Calzedonia pants, white Bershka block heel booties and a black and white bag. More or less the whole outfit is styled in black and white. This look proves that a black and white combination does not need to be boring.

Golden autumn

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons (Jim Bishop). Yes, it’s true – the autumn has many lovely colors in the gold palette and inspires us with its beauty.

How do you assemble your autumn outfits? It’s the season when one minute we’re too hot, and the next it’s not. So, what’s a woman to do? We should be clever with our ideas – try to nail the „in between seasons“ sweet spot when matching our outfits. We could on one side keep the passing warm weather feeling, for instance with a pair of shorts, while at the same time stepping into the winter season by choosing a warmer sweater and a fluffy jacket. I chose some autumn colors – burgundy/rosewood for the sweater, golden yellow for the shirt and jacket, black faux fur shorts and black accessories, matched in a fashionway.

Autumn weather, autumn mood

Autumn – this feeling when the sun took a step back, the leaves covered the ground and the trees show us how lovely it can be to let things go.

For me personally autumn is a little bit of a sad season, moreover now that we are at home in a lockdown (again). But I see it as a necessary transition period leading to the festive December.

But no matter how sad and cold the weather outside is, the nature colors revive – yellow, orange, saturated green, dark violet and red, brown, etc. And the autumn trends always follow those colors and so do I. I like violet, burgundy and all combinations in this palette. 

My outfit today is a cosy, casual one – a „fashion“ shirt with jeans, a sleeveless red jacket and matching sneakers.

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.

Sweater with dogtooth, short skirt and over-the-knee boots

I’m always up for the challenge of throwing together a good black and white outfit, only this time matched with bits of silver grey. When I saw this dogtooth chunky sweater, I got inspired to bring you a casual street look that works great for this season.

When it comes to sweaters, I gravitate towards purchasing a variety of styles ranging from high to low. This means I try to invest in at least a few new good sweaters each winter, that will carry me from season to season. And then I go for a handful of on-trend statement sweaters that I can style with more basic pieces to stay relevant, playful and edgy.

This trendy sweater allowed me to do just that — pairing with the short casual black skirt that I’ve had for years, one of my over-the-knee boots from Zara and one of my most favorite black fur bag that matches the fur of my grey-silver jacket . Mixed together you get a nice outfit that not only makes a statement but aligns with a modern chic monochromatic styling scheme, in a fashionway.

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.
