When it comes to dressing the lower part of my body i'm someone who's actually a big fan of a loose fit combined with a soft and light fabric. But you guys know the drill - sometimes it's nice to bring back those piece that you used to love and wore like there was no tomorrow - in this case i'm talking about my high waisted black skinny jeans which is actually a new addition to the family since the zip of my favorite one broke. Unfortunately it took me quite a while to find find a similar model that i will love like the old one but a few weeks ago i got my hands on this amazing pair - which has everything i was looking for! Combined with this bright jumper and those super comfy sneakers i truly feel shifted to the past when i was rocking this look more than once!

Sun’s out, shoulder’s out! That’s pretty much one of those looks that seems to be loved by almost everyone this summer! I’ve seen it with basic jeans, skirts, culottes and dresses but since i’m also a big fan of wide length pants i decided to wear one of my favorite carmen top with this amazing vibrant palazzo pants that i found during my little vacay that i spend in Italy! Simply perfect for dinner or a stroll through the city!

The oversized white shirt - it’s pretty much an item that matches with every piece of your wardrobe and which is obsiously perfect for almost every occasion when dragging yourself out of the house without thinking to much what your’re going to wear! So without looking to boring i decided to add a pop color – and what would be better than vibrant red shoes to spice up this neutral combo! In this case i opted for an outfit that follows the concept of dressing in three colors which is something that i can highly recommend! It’s actually a secret style strategy and simply the best way to create a look that shows a little bit more of your creative side! It sounds pretty easy but somehow this kind of dressing seems to be really pleasing to the eye and for some of you this may just be a refresher and will inspire you to try out something ‚new’.

Summer or winter, a good pair of denim jeans is a true staple in everyone’s wardrobe. Worn with a white tee and sneakers casually during the day or in my case with a cool bomber jacket and high heels for a night out, it’s one of those versatile piece of clothing that everyone is able to rock! Denim can be so much fun - especially when you decide to add a few individual elements to your favorite denim piece, which makes everything a little bit more personal and unique (examples down below). That's exactly what i will be doing during the Vienna Fashion Night at the Peek and Cloppenburg Weltstadthaus (Kärntnerstraße 29-31, 1010 Vienna ) which is hosting the Levi’s® Tailor Shop June 16th from 7 – 10 pm. I’m super proud to be part of this amazing event and also super excited to invite you to get you favorite new Levi’s (which you can shop during the event - definitely check out their models online) and help you to customize your new piece with patches, rippings, and studs for free! I can't wait to pimp my new high rise skinnies either which i'm wearing in these pictures along with these other piece i found at P&C! Since i'm already prepared and know that i'm going to rock this whole look again that night i thought i would be cool to give you the same opportunity! If you're lucky enough, you - to be exact three of you, have also the chance to win of a Euro 100 Peek & Cloppenburg Gift Gard before June 13th. All you have to do to take part in this giveaway, is pretty easy – just comment down below and leave your e-mail so i’m able to contact you and hopefully meet you guys at the store.

I would be thrilled to meet you there! (For those of you who can't make it on Thursday night: P&C is hosting the Levi's® Tailor Shop on Friday and Saturday 17 and 18 too, from noon to 6 pm!

Fitness – a category which never made it up to the Blog – kind of strange since i’ve always been pretty athlectic and always enjoyed exercise. Already with the age of 3 i was passionate about being active and tried out a bunch of sports when i was young – like figure skating, ballet, dancing, badminton, vollesball – just to name a few for which i was pretty ambitous about. At this point i honestly have to say that I will always be thankful to my parents for brining me up in this way because years later when i was a teenager i absolutley loved gym running and pretty much anything to do with being sporty - i even ended up as a dancer which was probably my favorite sport if i heave to name my number one. So as you can imagine fitness has always been a big part of my life. Of course things have changed, and instead of spending and hour of training on the filed and doing an actual sport like volleyball or basketball (which btw iterribly miss) in order to stay fit, i ended up at the gym where i work out consistently throughout the year. My approach to how i exercise is a combination of cardio, strengthening and toning my muscles. Personally i’m a big fan of lifting weights which is in my opinion one of the biggest ways to transform your body and with a specific program (Pyramid Sets Training) i managed to define my muscles and be strong enough to carry my overweight luggage every time i travel! My neighbours are always impressed! But as you guys probably know it’s super important to switch things up before you get bored and your workout is no longer challenging.
So this year i decided to revamp my workout routine which is in my opinion the key to get the results you are looking for! It’s all about shocking your body and switch things up in order to reach your body goals but also have more fun too! And let me tell you – there are so many options and workouts that will get you motivated to work a little bit harder – because we all know that sometimes it can be so tough to keep up! So my personal routine is shockingly basic but every once in a while i add a HIIT Training to it!

In my opinion a good dry shampoo is one of those wonder products i can’t even remember living without - especially when you just don’t feel like spending two hours washing, drying and styling your hair. Whether it is that you hit the snooze button to many times or if your simply have oily hair and don’t want to wash it every single day, dry shampoo is definitely one of the efficient helpers when it comes to hair! A trick that i can highly recommend is using dry shampoo before going to bed! Just spray a little bit at the roots and massage it in! After that you should not brush or touch it because otherwise you won’t get the same clean-hair effect on the next day. What i also love about dry shampoo is the fact that it can be used for multiple reasons even on freshly washed hair - especially when you’re hair is fine and limp, a little bit of dry shampoo will add that extra volume that you’re looking for! But also when your’re creating a hairstyle that require a little bit more texture and it also helps making the Bobbi Pins staying in place.
Personally i’ve tried out more than 10 different products over the last few years but today i will show you one of my favorites that i’ve been using over the last few weeks! Goldwell have recently launched their new Kerasilk Repower Volume & Kerasilk Color Dry. It comes in a really sleek can, just like a regular hairspray. When i first tried it i instantly fell in love with the flowery scent which smells and feels like something from a hair salon. The pink one protects color from premature fade-out and the blue one, that is also a new formula based spray which combines two new innovative powder, add a natural and voluminous effect to your hair! So all in all i’m pretty happy with these two hair helpers that makes life a little bit more easier!

Shiny and buttery soft – two ways i would describe this amazing pants from the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection which obviously represent the lates trend – oversized tailoring. For some of us it can actually be quite daunting but in my opinion it’s a look that can be incredibly chic. The important thing to realize about this trend is that it can be actually quite flattering, especially when you get the proportion right. In my case i decided to pair this pants with a top tucked in, in order create a nice silhouette and added this amazing belt which truly became a staple in my wardrobe. I can highly recommend getting one of these because it instantly amps up even the simplest outfits. Personally i love wearing this pants with flats or sandals with a chunky heel like i did in this case. It’s definitely a trend to try because sometimes you have to ditch your skinny super tight pants and experience with fashion.
