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.

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!

Just floating today on flower jeans

I am always trying to wear clothes that make me feel good in my body, comfortable and confident in my skin because, that all that you are is about how you feel. I enjoy wearing jeans, but since I discovered the mom-jeans I think they will turn out to be my new leggings. They are so comfortable and after their kind was made popular, they became one of my favorites.

High waist, tapered leg, ankle-free – the mom jeans have a high waistband that reaches over the navel with legs converging into carrots. They are often turned upside down with back pockets sitting higher than average with the cut tolerantly hugging the hips.

So how to style them? The advantage of mom jeans is that they make the belly flatter. but unfortunately at the same time the backside often also looks flatter and wider. One has to wear it with a lot of self-confidence in an „I don’t care“ attitude. The rule of thumbs is to have your tops tucked in the jeans, otherwise the outfit looks too big. In my photos you see here, you can see it in both ways – once with a tucked in blouse and a belt on the jeans, and another with the top floating – being a transparent one that works well too. I love the decorations on those Fracomina jeans.

The blouse on this outfit is also Fracomina, bag from Versace Jeans, Pimkie cardigan and Stradivarius shoes.

Orange mood

I have always thought of orange as one of the colors of the fall season, but now it became trendy for this spring – it’s one of the colors that may make it’s way into your wardrobes in 2020.

And as we all want to light up after the long winter and I think a sleevless jacket with a matching sweatshirt does the job great. As orange is a color that everyone will notice, and even if it takes only a part of the outfit or an accessory, it has the desired effect. Of course a full orange dress or suit would work great, too.

I combined my orange pieces with black skinny jeans and white Skechers sneakers. To extend the palette i took my Jack Wolfskin brown backpack, in a fashionway.

Of course, taking in mind the current quarantine, the photos were taken on the street in front of my home, and I strongly appeal to everyone to stay at home!

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 :).

Teddy coat trend

All over the streets, the teddy coat has been worn by various faces. It’s clear that this new outwear has taken over today’s street style and almost everyone likes it.

The teddy jacket trend revolves around the look of a cozy, faux fur coat that seems to resemble a teddy bear, hence the appropriate name. The trend that started back in 2016 is still around with its classic style while at the same time evolving into different colors, shapes and silhouettes.

After the fall of 2018, it was clear that the appeal of the teddy coat has tremendously increased. The coat also goes by other names such as faux fur, soft fur jacket, sherpas, teddy coat and any fuzzy descriptive phrases.

As the teddy coat comes with a lot of versatility, allowing for any person to incorporate their personal touch, influencers and celebrities also manage to style theirs in their own way in order to hop on the trend. 

All that said – will this trend last? I would say it will stay, for several reasons – it’s cosy, comfortable and warm – ideal for the cold months; at the same time it’s street style and fashionable; it keeps being promoted for already several years in a row, and last but far from least – it is fake leather, no animals harmed.

In the upcoming years, the teddy coat may become even more of a „classic staple“ just like the leather jacket in the past. When buying clothes I always consider if I would be able to wear them more than one season, but with this one I have no worries – I know, no matter the color or style, it will keep finding the way out of my wardrobe.

My outfit today is, of course, with a soft faux fur hooded coat in a yellow trendy color, matched with my always favourite, no matter the brand, skinny jeans from Only and a checkered dark blue shirt (again a trendy color) and black Michael Kors sock sneakers.

Hoodie trend

The hoodie trend is very active at the moment and got everyone talking. But what makes it so popular? Well, it’s inexpensive, easy to style, but most importantly it’s comfortable and fits perfectly to the street style.

I believe nearly everyone has a hoodie in their wardrobe. So, it is very easy to grab one and make a full outfit out of it. But take care – because hoodies are relatively loose and chillig, you have to pick some more elegant toursers. I combine it most often with skinny jeans or fake leather leggings. It could also work with chinos, but if you go for daily jogging pants, your look will quickly become too homy cand casual.

Today I decided to go for a classical hoodie in a very trendy fuxia color, combined with black skinny jeans. To break away from the sporty look of the top, I completed the outfit with an elegant bag and funky sneakers. I love breaking standard styles: in this case a mix of classic and sporty, in a fashion way.

Summer street style in pastel

This is to continue to show you another great side of the mint green color. I’m loving this mint green blouse from Stradivarius – it’s super soft, stretchy and feels light as a feather. Plus, I love the lace, which makes this piece elegant and of course, chic.

This particular mint green top combined with milk summer jeans which also have a mint touch, make a nice silhouette, which gives more of a casual vibe.

I love outfits with a pop of color and that’s exactly what I’m doing here. Mint is one of my favorites to play with during spring and summer. To make this outfit even more exciting, I’m using different shades of mint green with shoes which add a modern touch. Previously I always thought I should never wear pastel colors because they are too boring, but I just love them now and love to make different combinations especially with the textures of the mint green.

Neon green in the nature

I have always associated the light green color with new growth in nature, new beginnings, the coming back to life of plants, new energy, freshness and renewal. That’s why my new post with the trendy neon green is out in the nature today – a natural look surrounded by the healing power of the green color. 

And what do we like to wear in spring – something comfortable, casual, light, something that makes us feel free and relaxed. Jeans are always a perfect goal – no matter what happens they are always in fashion. The combination of light color with a high waist is cool and up-to-date now. I am really fond of matching them with wide short shirt and colorful floral summer shoes. 

Moreover for me the light green color is like a green light which gives me hope for creating new things and makes me more ambitious – so let the green spring bring you new hope and ambition, too!

All white with a touch of hot pink

After a little shopping at Stradivarius, I was inspired to style something elegant, vivid and casual. My new pink blazer was a perfect choice to look stylish and attractive. Meanwhile I am a person who loves comfortable clothing, so I picked a pair of white skinny jeans and a white top – I really like wearing all white with just a touch of color. As for shoes I chose black printed heels with the same bag from Humanic.
