Be colorful

Are you the type that likes more colors for the summer, or the one who wants to show the simplicity of one or two colors? I am a big fan of definite colors like pink and black, but the summer time carries with it thoughts of more vibrant palettes – the summer should be colorful!

In summer I have always tried to be different and original with my outfits, no matter if out in the streets, at the beach, party, working or at home. „Different“ means no boring colors but rather fresh and trendy – the ones that make me confident. No matter if 2, 3 or more colors are matched together, the most important thing is to do it in a comfortable and fashionway.

In summer I always put more colors in my outfits, not only for the daily clothes, but of course also for the beach or the pool – like with this overall I have on today – colorful from orange to pink with some mint.

Try it – it really pays off to play with some eye-catching colors and attract attention that way!

…just have more fun

Basic, but stylish 😊. I like basic T-shirts and tops with a small logo very much, with short text or quotes – they are simple and eye-catching at the same time, giving the outfit this cute casual feeling. Moreover very often a simple top is the main centre of attention, no matter how good the shorts, skirt or trousers are.

In my outfit today I chose a lovely short jeans skirt painted with palms, but I think the main piece is really 100% the batik „pink power“ Zara shirt, which I trendy knotted for fun. So, basic is more than basic , if chosen in fashionway. Do you also already have your basics for the hot summer days? And remember – have fun when making your outfits – it will also affect your looks.

Shades of turquoise

Turquoise is one of my absolute favorite colors for this summer. It is elegant, cute and meanwhile a fresh color. So, as it is Saturday and I am in a weekend mood, I feel like I just want to look in another way. My top today reminds me of the magical sea waves, my sneakers of the mint ice cream and I’m not complaining 🙂 – just totally in a summer vibe. And don’t you think that basics are adorable – a simple top, Jeans shorts and sneakers – what else. Less is more!

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.

There is always a reason to smile

No matter the season, month or day, I think we can always find ourselves a reason to smile, because when you laugh and love life, life laughs and loves you back :).

Smiling makes us look younger, it can relieve stress, boost our mood, trick our brain to focus on positive thinking and possibly bring many more benefits. But the thing I like most about smiling is it makes us more attractive.

Remember that a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear. Hence, next to wearing your nicest clothes you should never forget finding a reason for putting on your smile, too!

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?

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?

Finding favorite summer „uniforms“

Summer is in full swing and one of my favorite go-to daily uniforms is definitely the cut off jeans shorts and a strap top. They are easy to throw on, no-hassle and there are really many different cute ones out there in the shops. I especially like the jeans shorts with decorations like patches, sequins or paintings. In the upcoming articles I will also show you another of my favorite summer outfits.

And remember – do not complain how hot it is in the summer and don’t think that the contents of your closet feel extremely unapproachable – there are always many cute summer outfits to find no matter if it is just simply shorts with a top or even something more simple. Much more important than wondering about that, is feeling good and always if possible in your fashionway.

Of course don’t forget the accessories – my favorite for this summer are the ones in neon pink and green colors and in fruit forms – I am in love with my transparent watermelon 🍉 bag and Ananas 🍍 bracelet.

Would you wear your swimsuits 365 days a year?

With this post I will continue the topic of my previous one – namely swimsuits. I already wrote that I’m not a bikinis fan, but I like summer so much and dream to live somewhere where the summer lasts forever, that I keep asking myself – what would it be like to wear bikinis 365 days a year?

I guess it would be a challenge, but one that maybe one day I will be able to take up. I would then wear not just one-pieces, but any kind I could find – different sets, combinations, colors and forms. Here I chose a set where the top highlights the breasts, while the bottom part gently highlights the curves of the body. The color of course is highly important – even if the model is great, if its not in the correct color it looses the effect.

Isn’t it true that some of the most required things you need for a great beach day is a slay bikini set to show off your beautiful unique body and your good mood. But how is the good mood coming – when you feel good and look nice in a fashionway. Don’t forget also to pick a good pareo – my personal favorite pareo color is black.

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?
