June mood

Although it’s already mid-June – it’s incredible how with the whole pandemic situation time flew by and it’s already June – the weather in Vienna is not really warm yet, but rather unstable. That’s why I am very unsure if the day calls for a summer outfit, or maybe rather not.

Still, for me, the beginning of June marks the start of the summer, therefore I am completely in the appropriate spirit – short pants, fancy tops, summer dresses, sandals, flip flops, bikinis, pool time and of course the sea. But this summer for me is a bit special – as we are moving to a new house, there will be only pool time at home, no travel to the seaside like every year. That doesn’t bring me down, on the contrary – I will always find time to travel, but moving into one’s own new house does not happen that often. I’m extremely happy that the house of dreams of my family is now a fact.

In that line of thought, my outfit today is with black shorts from Zara – I like all kinds of shorts – be it formal or fancy, because they are comfortable and easy to combine with other stuff. The top piece is from ALCOTT – once more in my favourite pink, but with long sleeves because of the changing weather. The look is completed by the accessories – a cute black Valentino bag and summer shoes from Humanic, in a fashionway.

There is always a reason to smile

No matter the season, month or day, I think we can always find ourselves a reason to smile, because when you laugh and love life, life laughs and loves you back :).

Smiling makes us look younger, it can relieve stress, boost our mood, trick our brain to focus on positive thinking and possibly bring many more benefits. But the thing I like most about smiling is it makes us more attractive.

Remember that a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear. Hence, next to wearing your nicest clothes you should never forget finding a reason for putting on your smile, too!

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.

Skiing is the next best thing to having wings

For me the ski holiday is always a great time – not only is it a great sport, but such an inspiring experience every single time. I think that into the mountains I go to lose my mind and find my soul. Moreover the mountain, the snow , the cold, altogether make me feel alive.

Always when I’m on the mountain, I’m just so thankful to be there! I can’t explain with words the way I feel there on the white slopes – it is a mix of happiness, awe and thankfulness that I get to touch this majestic beauty. 

And in order to be fit, in balance, and flexible I prepare always a well-maintained equipment and outfits to help me make sure that I will have a great time 😊. I choose Bogner ski combi, Burton sweatshirt, backpack and gloves, Under armour shirt, a fancy Dior helmet, Michael Kors sun glasses and sock boots, Cygnus and Alpina goggles, Hoxyheads pussycat helmet ears that make your ski helmet a real eye-catcher and neon pink Shawn Mendes double-layered hat in a soft rib knit.

All you have to do is fly

„Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.“ This is my quote of the day, as well as the logo of my outfit today – a simple T-shirt with short jeans – my casual style once again. Figuratively speaking, but somewhat true – each one of us can fly as long as he figures out how to use his wings. A lot of us fly to follow their goals, others develop themselves in different areas or fly when out in the nature while some do so when in love, etc. As for myself – I am flying when I do useful things and things that make me happy and content. But to do that I am trying to learn to love myself, be a friend with life, trust myself, believe in my inner resources and always keep going forward, of course in a fashionway.

What about you – what makes you fly?

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!

Feeling lazy and casual today

There are some days when you wake up and you’re just like „nope, not today“, especially when it rains and the mood goes down. You just want to go outside, casual and lazy and don’t think about your outfit too much.

My „nope“ today means „no“ to the bad mood. There is something good in every day and every weather. Let‘s smile, wear funny casual clothes ans enjoy the spring time with all it’s beauty. And what does spring beauty mean – blooming flowers, wonderful inspiring smells, freshness everywhere even from the falling rain.

For me, one of the symbols of spring is the lilac bush, adding abundant color to the landscape and scent the air with fragrance. It makes me also especially very happy because violet with all its nuances, bright or dark, is one of trending spring colors. It can be easily combined with neutral ones like grey, white and beige, but meanwhile a combination with gold ot metallic is also perfect. In addition a well combined natural mix between green and violet also deserves a compliment and look elegant in a fashion way.

Skiing in Carinthia

Carinthia is situated in the southern part of Austria and is called „The land of sun“. In winter it is snow covered and as in most other parts of the country, skiing is the main activity. The mood is more relaxed with a Mediterranean touch as it borders with Italy – nearly everyone down here speaks Italian.

One of the biggest resorts in Carinthia is Bad Kleinkircheim, which is quickly moving up the rankings of the ski resorts in Austria. It has over 100km of pistes, 24 lifts and a slope steep enough to get included in the world cup circuit. There is enough snowfall throughout the season, but the sunny days are abundant as well – as you can see for the several days I was skiing there it was sunny all the way.

The hut at the top of Kaiserburg, situated 2019 meters above sea level, is a notorious one, with the fine views it offers and a traditional interior, as you can see from the pictures. Service and the food quality are very traditional for the region.

Love skiing

I was a 2,5 year old little girl when I started skiing and since then my love for the sport never faded away. It is a great feeling each winter to get on the skis, but it’s also a very good exercise, especially when you are good at it.

This year I was in a very beautiful resort – Bad Kleinkircheim, situated in the Carinthia part of the Alps. I enjoyed every bit of it – from the great weather and fantastically well prepared slopes, to the marvellous views the Alps presented, as you can see on the pictures. I planned to write a lot about it, but no words are really needed when the photos can talk for themselves. It was like a winter tale.

Good morning from Hermagor

Good morning from a magical place in Tröpalach near Hermagor, Carinthia in the south of Austria, just off the border with Italy – the Falkensteiner hotel & spa Carinzia. To have a breakfast here with the astounding alpine peaks, (still) green ski slopes and meanwhile warm pools in the background cannot be described with words. 

Expect one more post with a gallery of pictures we will take in this magestic area.
