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.

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.

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!

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.

The mood in the city is slowly coming back

After staying home for such a long time, taking a late afternoon walk in the centre of Vienna, which is still unusually empty, feels great. I really miss the old way of life before this crisis, the streets, coffee shops and shops, full of people, but there is also beauty and delight in the calm and quiet – one can see things that previously did not stand out. Even though the city is in sort of a stand still, the spring gives it hope. And the summer is just around the corner and I already can’t wait to get my new outfits for the next season ready.

My outfit today – freestyle, comfortable and careless – an ALCOTT white sweatshirt, a pair of Patrizia Peppe skinny jeans and FILA Sneakers.

The secret of the success is that you never give up

Easter – one the most sacred holidays is approaching fast and while we all stay at home, I would like to share with you that there is no better feeling in the world than the one from the love of your closest – the family. With the risk of sounding trivial, I can safely say that the greatest treasure I have is my family. Every step forward, each success of mine, everything I achieved would be hardly possible without the support they give me, without their love and mine for them. We went through some fantastic times together, we have also had our fair share of hard times, but we went through it all together, because the love in our family flows strong and deep.

I wish everyone happy easter holidays, lots of love and never give up.

As for the outfit today – it is an all-black one, with some silver details that I like so much. The holed black tunic with the print text „The secret of the success is that you never give up“ is covering a silver body. The accents here are the accessories in two combinations: on some of the photos with the Giuliano Gudman sneakers with a hot pink bag, and on the others with black velvet heels matching a black bag with the same silver details as on the tunic and the leggings.

Taking in the fresh air of spring

The sweet breeze outside will put a smile on your face and make you enjoy your day. It always amazes me, how, just taking a walk outside instead of being online all day can make you feel as happy as only nature can. Especially these days, having that part of your day, when you just do nothing, is really important. I need to clear my mind to be productive and there are many ways to do so – meditating for example or just relaxing and having a coffee are some of my favorites.

Today’s outfit is in the trendy pastel violet. The skinny jeans with the sweet glittering hearts are combined with Bugatti sneakers, a tiny bag and Michael Kors sunglasses.

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!

Dear winter, I think you need a vacation, it’s time to let spring start!

Although in Vienna the winter is not a real winter because we rarely have snow, and although it’s still cold, I am already looking forward to my favorite season – the spring and I am even ready for the summer right now. For me the summer always passes away so quickly that even with the winter being so mild I am very much looking forward to the hot season. I can’t wait to see my favorite trees blossom, to smell the spring freshness and to hear the birds singing.

So, seeing the rustling river and this I iced frozen pool I tried imagining that it’s already summer, even being dressed in this thick sweater. I meanwhile love this roughly weaved O‘Neil sweater, with the the Shawn Mendes trendy pink cap and my new Nike Air max 270 sneakers, of course all of them matched in a fashion way.

The child is still in me

Have you ever had the feeling that the child in you keeps living, because with me it’s a fact – for example I get excited about each new character Disney makes a movie with. I adore Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Sleeping beauty, Cinderella, Tangled, Moana, Elsa and more or less all princesses… So I will be sure to go and see the Frozen 2 movie soon.

There was something magical about Elsa singing „Let it go“ in the first part and I am 100% here for whatever hopefully-not-terrible sequel Disney wants me to see.

And what about the trailer – it tells us… eh. Nothing. It’s autumn in this movie! The same old characters will be in it! Elsa will get trapped on an island? Sven has to leave his natural habitat? Anna needs to fight with a sword? There’s not much plot to work with here. There’s not even any spoken lines of dialogue. Queen Elsa still has her ice skills.

Six years ago Disney rolled out the first part, and since then Frozen is all around us. For the first time we had a Disney movie that was not all about Princesses finding their dream Princes – it was a story about the relations between two very different sisters – Anna and Elsa. So I am very curious to see what will follow now…

I am feeling cute between the two princesses – with my soft white coat, rust colour skirt, matching Levi’s skirt and white Skechers sneakers.
