Spring outfit with knitted overall

With the temperatures increasing a little bit down here in Vienna, my excitement about the coming spring makes me wish to start choosing light clothes, but it is not really warm enough to switch to the spring pieces. As much as I want to start stashing away the winter sweaters and tops, the fresh weather right now gave me the chance to put on this brown knitted Zara overall. It is still a great choice for the early spring – keeps you warm while giving you the opportunity to show some legs. Moreover such knitted pieces like shorts, cropped tops, overalls, etc. are very trendy.

I matched my overall with a black turtleneck body and black accessories – a cute MONKI bag, black gloves, Pimkie boots and topped it with a white teddy coat in a fashionway.

Minimalist style or all the colors and patterns

The minimalist style is definitely a style that I like – I often stick to black and white or single-tone palettes, but I also never  give up on the colorful palettes.

To be a minimalist means that you live for black and white and maybe, just occasionally a bit of grey or camel; no over-the-top accessoring, no garish patterns or print clashes. No bold color combinations or rainbow brights. There are just all the neutrals, black and white. 

It’s a very simple style, but I still love putting some pink or another bright color accessory or piece to freshen up the outfit.  So, the minimalist style as I said is a style that I like and incorporate it in my looks every now and then. Such is my outfit today – all in the beige palette. I matched a white Monki skirt and sweater with a beige Zara coat and Pimkie boots in the same color. I topped the outfit also with a beige bag, a white hat and scarf. I hope you like it! And you – are you for a minimalist style or you prefer all the colors?

Jeans shirt with slouchy high waist jeans

Do you have the feeling that in these crazy Corona times we are less and less motivated to dress up well enough? Our old lifestyle has gone and with it the desire to look good. The few times when we do go out, it is for shopping (as much as shops are open right now), or maybe for a small walk, and then we just put on whatever we find quick with the idea that there is anyway no-one that will see us, moreover with a mask. Still, we should take care of our looks, at least because it gives us some so-needed self-confidence.

Here’s one comfortable look from me today. If you are wondering how to combine a jeans shirt in winter – it’s easy – a good sweater on top and jeans for the bottom match perfectly. A classic sweater with collar look. The one I have on, is a Pimkie cream cable sweater with shoulder details. As for the jeans I chose these trendy slouchy high waist ones also from Pimkie, that being so unorthodox are still very comfortable. The whole outfit I topped with a short beige MONKI jacket, brown velvet Zara boots, whose color works very well as an accent and a black Zara bag.

Black at any time, in any combination

You can wear black at any time, at any occasions and in any combination.

No matter the time of the year I always have a lot of black pieces in my outfits, mainly because they are really easy to match. Honestly, in the past, the black color was predominant in my wardrobe, but the more I followed the fashion trends, the more I reduced it. And not only because of those trends, but also because I realised how beautiful colors could be – colors that I previously thought would not fit me. In fact I also found out something more – we wear the colors that match our mood. Maybe that was the reason that for a long time I was hiding behind the black color. But step by step I changed that, albeit even today, when in doubt, I choose black.

In this outfit I went for a trendy black hoodie with pleats on the back, a black Pimkie booties, a black Valentino bag and a black winter cap, matched with a long beige Zara coat and gray Gucci jeans. So although the black pieces are dominant, adding some fresh colors make the outfit looking nice in a fashionway.

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing

Cold gray days, cold winter weather – how to make it not boring? Of course, by giving the opposite contrast – warm, colorful and thinking of the positive aspects. If it’s not cold, how could we wear our nice warm coats, hats and gloves and how could we enjoy the coming of the spring.

My outfit today is based around trendy colorful accessories – a warm pink-black Nike beanie and a pink small bag, which make the look interesting and give a colorful feeling, like in summer. Normally in winter we wear cream, black, gray, beige or otherwise neutral colors, but why not some bright ones in addition. They somehow convey these cute and happy feelings.

I matched those accessories with a mint colored teddy coat from Bershka, a white warm Calliope sweater, Pimkie jeans, Michael Kors sneakers, all in the same palette and my white H&M gloves. So, thus the cold is less cold and the gray day is less gray.

Cream colors layering

Now that it is so cold in Vienna, I really need a thick coat and this NA-KD one is one of my best choices – I just love it. Not only is it super warm and fluffy, but it’s also in one of my favorite colors this season. And the rest of this outfit I also matched in the same cream palette. I combined it with this great looking one-shoulder Zara sweater, white Gucci jeans and beige velour boots. I love layering up for the cold days and matching up similar light colors. To finish the outfit off I went for black accessories – one of my favorite Pinko bags, a black beanie and gloves, both decorated with cream pearls, I hope you like it!

Jogging pants trend

Although originally known as jogging pants when introduced by Adidas, nowadays they find their use in nearly all areas of styling – they even get some front rows in the fashion weeks. If casually styled for the every-day use, or nicely combined in an elegant business outfit – they seem to fit everywhere.

If you still wonder where did the joggers trend come from, must have missed the whole „athleisure“ movement that has been all over the place lately. „Athleisure“ obviously is a combination of „athletic“ and „leisure“, which leads to the style working well both for the free time, as well as for the office.

To achieve a modern look, a statement piece like the jogging pant should be combined with classic items like coats, shirts and even high heels. As it seems, nowadays the sport outfits have become popular also outside of the fitness studios and the open air tracks.

My outfit today, shot in my „still-work-in-progress“ blogger room, consists of tender mint Pimkie jogging pants, a casual Alcott white hoodie with a classic Zara elegant pink shirt underneath. The final touch are my nike sneakers, all combined in a fashionway.

Fluffy coats weather

Cold weather and fluffiness somehow go hand in hand. Moreover a fluffy coat ist not only warm and cozy but also very trendy and you can match with almost everything.

I feel effortlessly chic in this winter outfit today. Pairing a large black faux fur coat with a winter cord shirt, a Pimkie checkered skirt, Calzedonia leggings, chunky black Balenciaga ankle boots and a matching sweet Elisabetta Franchi small bag. And although I am not a huge fan of beanies, this black one with a gold snowflake fits the weather and the outfit nicely. Thus, I’ve achieved a casual glamour look and I love it!

A pink blouse with puffy sleeves

I seriously cannot believe how quickly the first months of the year flew by and it’s already real spring. However, I am looking forward to warmer temperatures and summer outfits. This sweet pink blouse with puffy sleeves is a great top to transition you from winter into spring, and I would always wear it with a nice skirt and cool tights. This trendy Monki pink top combined with the hearts details on the Calzedonia tights and the Love Moschino bag are giving me life right now. And not only them. Today is a great sunny day in which you don’t need a coat or thick clothes and I’m pretty happy about that! Plus, I enjoy everything around – the singing of the birds, the gentle spring breeze, the smell of the blooming nature and the sight of everything in green – the trees, the grass…

Saying „No, thank you“ to negative energy

Considering the situation in the world now and the outlook for the coming months, I want to say „No, thank you“ to all the negative energy and thoughts – this is my favorite slogan for the moment – do you have one of your own? Because when we are healthy that is enough to think positive and look optimistically towards the future. I know we hear this all the time, but that is indeed the essence of things.

In that context my outfit today is also a kind of a „No, thank you“ message to all the things that are negative. It is with one of my official coronavirus pieces – a cool hoodie – for the times when someone tries to come closer and shake my hand for example – no thank you! 

And as it happens pretty often lately I am in pink again, matched with black – two favourite colors. A pink Zara sweatshirt, a black Pimkie skirt, Calzedonia tights and socks, Michael Kors sneakers and a Victoria‘s Secret bag.
