When Diesel asked me if i wanted pick out one piece of their Diesel Black Gold Collection 2016 in order to create a whole look of course i said yes! I ended up with this top which is actually a dress but works perfectly with one of my favorite flared black pants that became such an essentials in my wardrobe over the last few months that i can't wait to rock with open toed-shoes!

Hello from Salzburg! I’m spending some days here in my hometown and for the first time in a long time i can honestly say that i’m finally recharging my batteries in order to get all my energy back! Being at home and kind of living my old life is something that i haven’t done in ages but it puts everything in a different perspective and invites to reflect! So the other day i decided to go back to the places where i spend most of the time when i was a little girl and where i had the chance to be wild and free without thinking about anything – the forest! I don’t know why but it often feels like falling into another world full of magic and mystery! It simply offers a different atmosphere which gets me not only excited but also inspires me over and over again. So with the help of my brother, who’s obviously pretty talented when it comes to photography, we captured all those beautiful moments in the woods before the sun went down! Of course i opted for a sporty look and combined my new Reebok-Classics with this top that i got at the FashionXSport-Event from Zalando in Berlin two weeks ago and simply shows off that wearing sporty clothes in your daily routine can be quite fashionable without looking like you"re going to the gym.

Although i often tend to wear black pants during the day, i have to say that i simply can’t resist a good denim piece. Instead of buying similar models i always make sure that i only add a pair which offers a complete different style – like this Patchwork jeans i found at Esprit. It’s a style you either love or hate but if you’re like me who loves to have a Britney & JT throwback denim moment every once in a while (still such a 90s kid) i can highly recommend getting one for yourself! You can either dress it up or down like i did in this case! Combined with this Bomber Jacket and Shirt i found at the men’s department i couldn’t be more happy with the outcome.

Anyone that is into make-up loves a good palette – especially a nude one! So today im excited to tell you that Bobbi Brown has come up with a new edition and some other products as well that will make life much more easier when it comes to make-up!
I will start with my favorite product which is of course the new Nude on Nude Eye Palette which features Bobbi’s all time bestselling colors (Nude|Cement|Wheat|Espresso|Malted) and it’s probably the best companion for day and night. You can pop on the lighter colors in the morning and instantly change your look for any evening occasion in a few minutes! Another great thing about this palette that i would like to point out is that it only contains mattes! So if shimmer is not your cup of tea this might be the one who’s able to become your all time favorite of your palette collection! I also have to mention that it also comes with an angeld shadow brush head on one end and with an eyerliner brush on the other which is definitely not a „space filler“ which happens to be the case 90% of the time! Unfortunately the palette is only available for a limited time but definitely worth checking out!

I have to confess that i’m a sucker for mid dresses, the one’s you can thrown without fussing about it but still look pretty and stylish! That’s exactly how i would describe this kind dress i’m wearing in this pictures. I scroed it during the Zara sale back in December sale and i’m still head over heels with this color combo. Somehow it reminds me of ‚The 70s Show’ which obviously became one of my favorite epoches when it comes to fashion. To top things off i paired this look with simple sneakers, a super cozy cardigan and this amazing Givenchy Bag (borrowed from Bianca) which also got featured in today's article (in german) in Otto's Online Magazin!

So yesterday was finally the day – the Esprit store located at the Mariahilferstraße 50-52 has reopened to the public after a massive face-lift. It’s so much more brighter and spacious which is in my opinion often a major selling point when it comes to shopping. In order to celebrate this re-opening but also the new #ImPerfect campaign in a proper way Esprit had a series of specials planned for the day including a professional photographer, a styling corner for their customers but they also hired a DJ to boost everyone's mood in a positive way and organized a flashmob right in front of the store to fulfill the entertainment needs as well.
The campaign itself is simply all about the message that you’re perfect just the way you are and aims to empower the individual to love all those little imperfections and different ways of being which makes us even more lovable and human than anything else (defintiely check out the #ImPerfect Movement) – but it’s also an invitation to experiment with fashion. And that’s exactly what i did that day.
One of my personal highlight and obviously a huge trend this spring was this green bomber jacket - it was truly the most eye-catching piece i found at the store that literally screamed "ready for spring"! Of course i took advantage of the new look of the store and decided to shot the first outfit on stairways. One of my favorite ways to wear this beautiful jacket is defintiely with a classic button down and with cheeky cuff showing off. It’s truly the easiest way to add a little bit more twist to the whole look which i also applied in practice for the second look which will be up next week! But until then i wanted to let you know that it's not to late to join the party because today you still have the chance to celebrate together with Esprit like i did today! Happy weekend everyone!

As you guys have probably noticed on my instagram I had a quick to Graz to attend the Unique Trends Shop in Shop Opening in Graz. Together with my blogger colleagues Deea from LesfactoryFemmes, Bianca from Worryaboutitlater & Manuel from Meanwhileinanawesometown we travelled to Kastner & Oehler which is one of the biggest and most modern department stores in Austria. We were invited by the brands Fossil & Michael Kors in order to discover their new and innovative watches from their current collection. As you guys know smartwatches became a huge trend back in 2015 but made by tech companies – which often means ‚not quite fashionable’! And that’s why Fossil decided to jump on to the bandwagon and created the Fossil Q which is the fashion powerhouse's first ever Android Wear (compatible with Android and iPhone devices via Bluetooth) smartwatch that features a touchscreen display and comes with a selection of steel and leather bands (wich is a great option if you’re not used to wear heavy watches). There’s no doubt that this is probaly the most stylish smartwatch (no random piece of silicone wrapped around your wrist) i’ve seen so far. Besides the fact that it takes notifications such as phone calls, emails, text messages, tracks fitness via a gentle vibration it also offers you a bunch of different watches’ like digital, chronograph, aviator which makes you think that the watch does anything more than tell time thanks to its traditional surface. Smart technology packed in pretty design, which became the highlight of my look that day!

Without a doubt the transition period between winter and summer is definitely one of my favorite - the air would change and you would start to see flowers here and there. There’s something so magical about it that makes it far more spectacular than the other three and it’s also a great opportunity to not only update wardrobe but also your fragrance collection.
Last week i was lucky enough to be invited to Paris in order to celebrate the launch of the new James Bond Fragrance 007forWomen II. We were welcomed at the Hotel Mandarin Oriental which is in the most fashionable part of town right on the Rue St. Honore and next to the flagship Chloé store.
Right at the beginning we were seperated in two groups and started our day with a presentation of the new perfume which was hosted by Will Andrews who works as a principal fragrance scientist at P&G and talked us through the world of perfume. He shared his passion that goes into creating new scents and finding new methods of capturing smells – you could truly tell that he follows the concept of ‚doing what you love’.
To enjoy the 007-event to the fullest we also got the chance to meet the make-up arrtist Naomi Donni who’s known for her work on Chocolat, Cinderella but also on 007 James Bond. While she was showing us how to achieve one of her Bond Girl-look she created in the past she also told us a few funny and interesting stories of the movie world.
To top it all off we also met italian actress Caterina Murino who gained international fame after playing Solange Dimitrios in the 2006 adaptation of the James Bond novel Casino Royale and is now the face of the 007 Fragrance for Women which reflect the contradictory characteristics of the women in the Bond universe. The flacon was cerated with numerous facets providing a kaleidoscope effect to accentuate the numerous faces of a women. In comparision to the first edition which embodies a mysterious Bond lady the 007forWomen II offers a charming daily variation in response to the evening debut. It’s lighter and opens with a combination of pink pepper, pink freesia, rasberry and pink champagne – obviously perfect for spring and the perfect option for the day. So thank you P&G for having me and for this lovely event!

For me, it's all about the back and since i developed an unconditional love for mid dresses i finally found 'the One'. I've been on the hunt for a backless black dress for quite a while but never found a piece that had all the features i was looking for. Long sleeves, high neckline and of course an exposed back - but good things come to those who wait. In fact mid dresses are probably the easiest option when it comes to effortless style - just throw on a leather jacket combined with a pair of white sneakers and you are good to go!
