…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.

Love a pop of color

I love wearing yellow in the summer, no matter if it’s on trend or not, because yellow and the sunshine are worth abounding. Yellow like: yellow sun, yellow summer, yellow sunflowers, yellow submarine, yellow summer time, yellow summer sunset…

I found this comfy velour set at Zara, then hopped into some matching heels and grabbed my lovely small Love Moschino bag. This is one of those sets which every woman should have in her wardrobe – just pull it out and you are ready to go. I love such outfits where you do not need to think how to combine them – a top plus shorts or skirt and voila – you are all set for an impromptu meet-up.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Love animals

When I saw this huge painting of a dog on that dark building, I just could not resist to use it as a background for my post. Not just because I love animals, but also because this commercial is not like every other simple one you see everywhere. I myself have three animals at home – three rescued street cats, which I love very much. If I had the possibility I would adopt even more, as I feel that each such animal is a rescued life. Thats why I appeal to everyone who wants an animal at home not to buy them but to adopt if possible.

And as the weather is still cold and grey , my look today is in similar mood and tones – a grey velvet Zara skirt, matched with a trendy colored sweater, a warm black Just Cavalli jacket, a pair of super comfortable Air-cooled memory foam Skechers sneakers and one of my favorite Versace Jeans bags.

Early spring

Early spring is my favorite season for fashion, so when I finally have the possibility to put less layers on, I happily take some off and match my outfits accordingly. Today’s look of mine is based on the over-knees – from ponchos and capes to trenches and short coats, over-the-knee boots make a statement and always flawlessly complete my look.

Thera are many different ways to wear your long boots but I think in this season nothing beats a good sweater dress with a pretty short skirt to complement the over-the-knee boots. Instead of freezing your bare legs in the not-yet-so-warm weather and pretending you are not, or wondering which tights to put on, these are actually really warm and look always trendy.

I have put together my LV over-the-knees with a brown sugar velvet skirt, a black Zara sweater shirt, a cutie faux fur short coat and a LV bag. I wear these during the whole fall, winter and early spring, because they go with any outfit you can think of: jeans and a coat, a sweater dress and a jacket or a short skirt and a blazer. These over-the-knee boots have never met an outfit they can’t elevate in a fashion way.

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.

Oversized bomber jacket in winter

Thick and well oversized, a bomber jacket is a great choice for the cold winter days. My Zara model in gold and green combines the winter and street styles at the same time. Although the gold and green might already be too shiny, I decided to add even more by choosing some green-gold glittering Calzedonia leggings, but softened them with a black oversized Tezenis sweater and black sock boots that also match with their shining block heels.

This eye-catching shiny outfit fascinates me to wear it, even though I am not really a fan of the combination of green and gold colors. I usually tend to combine green in my other casual outfits with black and beige and always try to add an elegant accent in a shiny color – for example red or orange. Because of that in today’s outfit I decided for gold.

What should you combine a bomber jacket with?

A basic outfit with such a jacket can be a combination with jeans, leggings, stylish pullover or a hoodie and low boots or sneakers. For the bolder, they could add some yellow or even blue, because everything out of the ordinary or out of the etiquette is appreciated more. As for those of you who prefer to stay more decent, you can combine it with grey, beige or black.

Me personally, I tend to prefer the decent colors more, but once in a while I like mixing outstanding outfits, of course in a fashionway.
