Green overall

The summer green to autumn gold – the grass is no longer green, but some of my outfits are still in green, as the green is one of the colors you’ll see everywhere in autumn/winter 2021. The mix of elegant and street style trend is my favorite – so, this outfit matches that – the nice Bershka overall with stylish Zara bag and rough white Bershka sneakers with matching Monki socks.

I always prefer wearing brighter and more joyful colors even if the weather is saying otherwise, simply because it cheers me and those around me, up. Not to mention this season there’s an abundance of mood-boosting highlighter brights to sink your teeth into.

Designers such as Versace, Prada, Molly Goddard, Jill Sander, Nina Ricci, Miu Miu, Stand Studio, Ganni and countless more embraced bold hues like green for this autumn/winter.

Casual outfit, jogging style

Casual, comfortable and careless – this could be an outfit with jogging pants.

It always makes me very happy when an ongoing trend is also a very comfortable one. If it was up to me I would wear my comfy hoodie every day when going out, especially in winter. So the currently trendy jogging outfits fit me perfectly, now that everyone is wearing them casually on the streets and not just at home. 

But is it o.k. to just go out like that? Yes, of course and today I am showing you one such outfit. I matched a trendy light mint jogging pants with the same top, a teddy coat and Nike sneakers. It’s not only comfortable, but also trendy in a fashionway.

Pink, pinker, pinkest – Pinko

The pink panther is a TV character from my childhood known also as “Pinko”. Since wearing Pinko brand clothes and accessories some years ago, I always related the two. For that reason my post today is in front of this fantastic graffiti which fits the cool pinko bag „love me tender“. As the bag itself is unique and the highlight of the outfit, the rest of my look is in simple black and white – a basic Zara T-shirt with padded shoulders, black short pants and a La Bottine pantolettes, matched in a fashionway.

A cardigan is always a loved piece

As the weather in may still varies a lot, a light cardigan is always a good piece to have around. But being very comfortable, a cardigan can also be very tricky and can easily ruin our outfit – that’s why you should know how to wear it without looking funny and frumpy.

The first thing is to figure out the style and length of the cardigan that fits best your body type. As with everything else about fashion, women’s bodes are different, so certain styles would be more flattering on some than others. That’s why you should learn what works best for your own body.

And it’s good to wear form-fitting clothes underneath a cardigan, or tight or belted dresses. Especially if the cardigan is a bit slouchy, you have to make sure the silhouette underneath it is form-fitting, otherwise you might look larger than you are.

The next thing to pay attention to is the fit of the arms – my favourites are the ones that have skinnier arms and feel the most slimming.

Also, feel free to show some skin – especially when most of the rest of your body is covered up. It’s more about what you put under your cardigan than the style of the cardigan itself. For example – if you combine with a turtleneck top – choose a sleeveless one, with open shoulders or collar bones. If you wear a normal shirt don’t cover the neckline with a scarf – show some skin instead.

In all that you should still pay attention to the current trends – right now, open cardigans are pretty hot – with holes, semi-transparent and with a different length on both sides.

I chose a holed pale pink cardigan, matched it with a black sleeveless turtleneck top underneath and skinny jeans. Of course, I can’t miss the accessories because they complete the outfit – a long necklace and earrings with a matching bracelet, sunglasses and a bag and shoes with the same colors and details.

How I stay positive and calm

People ask me all the time – how do you manage to stay so positive and calm? I am usually not writing about such topics, but having in mind the whole situation with the Covid-19 virus now, I decided to lay down some words on this question.

We often look at the world and consider it as negative. That’s not surprising, because just taking a glance at the news media could make the steadiest person depressed. Or looking around and realising how often people say dumb things about each other, how some show their jealousy and hate – it happens everyday and everywhere. But calling the whole world negative would be a misjudgment. It will only cause frustration which makes you even more angry and unhappy.

If you blame others for your negative feelings, nobody would hear or know about it – it would be only you who suffers. But if you try to blame yourself for your own negative feelings, you are making a step ahead ot at least make progress. But to really stay positive stopping blaming is the wisest thing to do.

Some of the other things that make me positive are. First – I don’t take everything personally – we very often analyse every single word people say or things they do, but all that is not always personal. Second – I let my feelings out and say what I think. Our Life is basically one challenge after the other and very often we keep our feelings “in a safe place” – inside ourselves. I try to not keep inside feelings like anger, frustration and anxiety on one side and joy, happiness, loveliness, etc. on the other. Third – I learned to be grateful about everything, good or bad, because even from the bad you can learn good lessons. And last but not least – if you want to be positive don’t stay on the same spot for too long and constantly work on yourself and follow your dreams, because if you do, you know that you have a chance to improve your life. And to me, that’s the best use of my time and energy. Also never forget to give your love even to people that don’t like you.

At the end I want to share this great quote: “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”/Napoleon Hill/ – doing small things in the right direction, will for sure make you feel better.

Just a few words about the outfit that goes with this post – a sweater in one of the 2020 colors – blue, combined with white and black, matched with one of my favorite Calzedonia faux fur leggings, Michael Kors booties, trendy black sunglasses and a Diana&Co Firenze Italian bag

My favorite Mickey makes me always happy

When I found this cool Iceberg sweater I had to immediately make a full outfit with it. I have put in it the two things that I love the most – my favorite hero Mickey Mouse and the combination of black and white.

I matched this sweet top with a pair of black Calzedonia faux fur Leggings, Michael Kors Olympia textile sock booties, a black Parka coat and a fluffy, soft, black and white Chanel bag. Meanwhile when I put on those booties for the first time, I had a feeling they are huge and way too sporty (due to the big sole) – but in reality they are extremely light and unbelievably comfortable. I am wearing them most the time now (you are likely to see them in my further outfits).

It may sound strange, but always when I‘m wearing my favorite Minnie or Mickey Mouse, I‘m feeling like a happy kid enjoying his ice-cream or chocolate.

So who is your favorite character, which you would wear a clothing item with?

A casual comfortable look with a long faux fur coat

Hi everyone, happy Saturday! I’m back to you with a new outfit as always. This full look I matched based on this marvellous, comfortable and suiting the early spring season, long faux fur coat – it really is one of my besties that I wear day-to-day here in Vienna at the moment.

It’s still freezing here in the city, so it’s all about the layers… and of course, coats that feel like blankets! I can’t tell how much I love this embellished faux fur. Isn’t it stunning? Such amazing quality and a very striking piece to have in your wardrobe. I paired it with several of my usuals – one of my black Tunics, long over-knee socks, white boots and a white bag. Oh, and lest not forget my comfortable gloves without fingers. It took me a while to try out this outfit but I have to say I love it.

Sweater with dogtooth, short skirt and over-the-knee boots

I’m always up for the challenge of throwing together a good black and white outfit, only this time matched with bits of silver grey. When I saw this dogtooth chunky sweater, I got inspired to bring you a casual street look that works great for this season.

When it comes to sweaters, I gravitate towards purchasing a variety of styles ranging from high to low. This means I try to invest in at least a few new good sweaters each winter, that will carry me from season to season. And then I go for a handful of on-trend statement sweaters that I can style with more basic pieces to stay relevant, playful and edgy.

This trendy sweater allowed me to do just that — pairing with the short casual black skirt that I’ve had for years, one of my over-the-knee boots from Zara and one of my most favorite black fur bag that matches the fur of my grey-silver jacket . Mixed together you get a nice outfit that not only makes a statement but aligns with a modern chic monochromatic styling scheme, in a fashionway.

Classy and cool day time look in black and brown

Isn’t it crazy how you can transform a casual T-shirt and jeans look to casual chic almost instantaneously as soon as you throw on a faux fur and a teddy coat? There is something about the black and brown tones and faux fur that gives an elegant, romantic and feminine feel. I feel absolutely darling in that faux leather pants and teddy coat combined with the black flat casual booties.

Fashion trends come and go, but one that retains its timeless style is the fake fur. Such a jacket is a statement outwear any fashionista should have when the temperatures start to drop. And also a good faux puff-piece could not only keep you nice and snug, but it could also single handedly glam up any ensemble.

From teddy to oversized jackets, to vibrant colors and funky chic patterns / prints – this is one cold-weather piece your wardrobe needs.

I have already rounded up some of my favourite stylish fake fur outfits and inspirations to help you rock this furry trend, in a fashionway – a dark brown teddy coat, a beige sweater, black Pimkie faux fur leather backpipe pants, a Gucci scarf, a black Pinko bag and a pair of cool flat booties.

The magic of the Christmas markets in Vienna

Vienna puts on her best clothes to welcome Christmas and all its guests. So many people visit Vienna for Christmas, and I think I know why – here we have one of the most wonderful street decorations in the world. All the streets are well decorated but my favourite are the chandeliers on the Graben – impressive and elegant at the same time.

But it’s not only the festive decoration on the streets that impress so much – the Christmas markets also offer a great experience. The one at Rathausplatz (the Vienna city hall) is the most visited, but there are so many others that don’t fall very much  behind. Some examples are the markets at Maria-Theresien-Platz, the one at Schloss Belvedere and Schloss Schonbrunn, the one at Karlsplatz, at Unicampus in the 9th, etc.

And although there is no snow (yet), neither are the temperatures too low, the Christmas mood is in the air. With great pleasure I walked through this market, wrapped in one of my all so favrorite teddy bear coats. Underneath I have a checked skirt and the outfit gets complete with comfortable long sock boots and a matching tiny black bag.
