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?

Double chocolate and then add some kiss

In Vienna, when the weather refuses to cooperate, you can always go inside – either shopping, or like me here – in one of the best traditional chocolate and cakes coffee house – Gerstner. I like to eat there a strudel and drink a melange, especially during the Christmas holidays when the mood inside is so unique. I adore this old style beauty you can see in the photos.

With the most beautiful holidays of the year just around the corner, I cannot resist the pieces of art they have here, so beautifully packed as presents. 

In the glamour of this pastry shop, I continue the silver glitter trend from my previous posts – my outfit consists of silver Calzedonia leggings, a black oversized sweater, a cute short gray cape and black booties also with a silver touch.

And to all of you, for the coming Christmas, I wish you a double chocolate and then add some kiss.

Fall-winter time – sweater time

It’s that perfect time of the year when it’s brisk enough to pull out a sweater while at the same time not too cold so that you have to hide it under a million layers. Being an oversized sweater lover I go for it pretty often and especially on this occasion in one of my favourite colors – pale pink, which also happens to be very trendy as of late.

So, grab your turtlenecks, mock necks, v-necks, crewnecks, cable knits and more and make your outfit. I match mine with a faux fur cardigan – I’m in love with the cute light pink jacket that i found in Colloseum – i think i can never have enough of those.

It’s very easy to pair every sweater with jeans but in this case I went for leggings in Bordeaux red.

Some of my best sweater accessories are the scarfs – I think they are always a great addition and make an outfit complete. I rarely leave the house in the fall or winter without some kind of scarf – it really goes a long way in pulling your look together, but if you find that your outfits are often lacking that “something special” I would recommend investing in a few scarves! Here my choice for it is a snake printed one, also pretty trendy now.

I finish my outfit’s go-to combination with black overknee boots and cute Monki bag, of course, in a fashion way.

Enjoying the wonderful weather in Bulgaria

I am in my home country Bulgaria for a week now and I am enjoying the really wonderful weather here – one that feels more like summer rather than autumn. So, I still got the chance to wear some of my summer outfits – for example like this, one of my favorite – a long off shoulder tunic, in pale pink which is trendy also for autumn and winter clothes, ending with an elegant lace and matched with black shorts. It combines in a great way the street style with elegance, with which I am obsessed.

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.

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.

Vegetables or fruits motives for your summer outfits

Summer is a time for relaxing holidays and for long evenings spent with friends and family. It is a time to gather energy and warmth from the sun and for me there is no better way to do that than by the pool or at the beach. This year I am in Bulgaria in the wonderful St. Vlas resort – it is a holiday town located in the southern foothills of the Stara Planina Mountain, very near to the Black Sea coast. St. Vlas occupies the north part of Nessebar bay, only 10 km from the municipality center town of Nessebar, close to the largest Bulgarian seaside resort – Sunny beach.

I enjoy every day here, not only because the people and the location are great, but also because of all the friends I have here, of course without forgetting The Fashionway.

This summer everything with fruits and vegetables is a perfect goal. If you are wondering what kind of outfit to choose for the pool or the beach it is easy – 🍉 watermelon, pineapple, lemons or even peppers 🌶 motives could be great. My favorite is the watermelon, what about yours?

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.

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.

Winter feeling

The winter is like love – it can be beautiful and peaceful but also cruel and cold…

Winter is the time for comfort, for good feelings and warmth, but also for a friendly talk and a walk. Despite the cold and chilly weather I love walking and meeting friends, but mostly when coupled with the great feeling of having a warm cosy coat on. I’m glad to share with you this casual outfit – a leopard coat, skinny jeans and warm sweater. Leo print is not something new, its enormous presence was in fall/winter 2018, but as the winter continues I’m still wearing it with great pleasure.
