Simplicity in linen

There is nothing more pleasant than wearing linen during the summer. It gives you this heavenly feeling like wearing clothes made of thin feathers. At the same time it’s a great base for a great simple look.

My summer loading today is an outfit with a blazer and high twist linen short trousers, in the evergreen white combined with trendy mint color stripes. Those two linen pieces being so unique, I decided not to add anything next to them – just the accessories needed to elevate the look – a pair of transparent white block-heeled shoes and a black bag to add some contrast.

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.

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.

Not dreaming of the 100k, but following my dreams

Years ago my view about the purpose of my life and work left me feeling hungry for a fresh start. I was ready for a little effervescence and so I followed the passion that I ever wanted to – the fashion.

So, now, after many years working in the fashion world I finally found my real place… Nowadays I‘m no longer dreaming of those „100k“ (or more) likes, I just want to keep presenting you my fashion views and ideas, trying to be of as much help as possible, of course always in fashion way 😊. But don’t forget – most important thing is – learn, collect ideas, follow others but always stay true to you and be yourself.

Say yes to the fruits

Fruit prints are very popular this season, so today I’m going to talk about incorporating them into your outfits. The most common patterns you are seeing this summer are the citrus ones! Lemons, oranges and limes are making their way onto dresses, tops, and accessories.

You can pair very easily a fruit print top with shorts or skirt and feel casual enough to be comfortable yet at the same time stylish.

But the trick to making fruit prints look chic and not overdone is keeping the rest of your outfit less busy. For example, when trying to pair one of your fruit-emblazoned pieces with a pair of shorts, jeans, skirt or capris choose them in one color and a maximum of  two appropriate colors for the accessories. And no matter high heels, flats or wedges try to feel comfortable and in a fashion way!

My favorite fruit piece this summer is a fruit top, what is yours?

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?
