Back to Basics | White Shirt Dress


One of my favorite things about vacationing, is definitely the fact that i’m always bringing pieces with me that i rarley wear. I don’t know why, but it’s seems to be a phenomenon – whenever my brain switch to 'holiday mood' i feel more inspired and willing to wear different styles. It’s like allowing yourself to try out new things and combos that you’re probably wouldn’t wear at home. Of course i always stick to my personal style and what works for my body type but i often find myself opting for something that is out of my comfort style. Anyways, today’s look is actually pretty simple and since my love for shirt dresses is still in full mode i was happy to finally rock this look while i was in Italy. Combined with my favorite mules from Högl and a cute little cross body bag i was ready to shoot this look at the roof top of our hotel.

My trip to South Africa with Teekanne Fresh

After 3 months the day has finally come and i’m officially allowed to talk about the reason why i travelled to Capetown in the beginning of March. Together with Julia from Our Clean Journey i was choosen to be part of the new FRESH Campaign by Teekanne. Their new ready to drink beverage called ‚Teekanne Fresh’ which is available in three different flavours (Hugo, Pomegranate Peach, & Berry Lime) is all about 'being who you are'. Compared to other cold drinks Teekanne created something with 0% sugar & 0 calories 100% fruity taste which obviously seems to be the first drink with no compromises when it comes to the ingredients.

And that exactly brings me to the 5 topics of the campain we shot in South Africa for Teekanne. Since Julia talked about her personal view on vacation, fitness & food i was the one talking about fashion & dating. Being or let’s say working in the fashion(blogger) world often forces you to jump on every band wagon in order to keep up with the rest. But in all honesty i have say that following your own rules when it comes to fashion will always be the answer. Of course i also often ended up buying stuff that had nothing to do with my personal style but ever trial and error gets you to the point where you want to be one day. Clothes should be fun! So wear what makes you feel good and being who you are without compromises.

The same applies for realtionships. Without a doubt having someone on your side that makes you feel greater and happier who shares the same thoughts is probably a goal for(almost) everyone. Life is too short to compromise and have bad realtions ships. This is something i learned over the last couple of years – if it wasn’t working me i knew that i had to move on. So with that being said, here are all the impressions of our trip and two clips that captured the topics perfectly. I hope them as much as i do!

Juste en Clou de Cartier #Advertorial


Back in the day when i was a little girl i was always keen to learn new things when it came to handcraft work. Even before the word do it yourself came out i always tried out different ways to create my own bags, hats and of course jewellery was on my very top list. I have to say that i always loved visiting my dad in his own workshop where he had tons of stuff in order to either repair something or simply invent something new. For me it was some sort of my personal market where i found everything i needed for my projects. As you can imagine i often put a new spin on things that were supposed to be used for another purpose. Sometimes you have to look at thinks from a different perspective – and that is exactly what the french luxury manufacture Cartier did! Back in the 1970s the first nail bracelet was created in New York. Juste en Clou (en: „just a nail“) which is the expression of a rebellious nature and reflected a wild and free wheeling era - and now the story continues with a new addition called ‚Ecrou de Cartier’ with a nut as a symbol. Again a transformation of the ordinary to the extraordinary which can be considered as a contemporary interpretation of the iconic  LOVE braclet.  So today i’m not only showing you the new creation of the ‚Juste en Clou’ collection designed by Aldo Cipullo i also wanted to share the new image clip which perfectly picks up each facet of this beauiful piece of jewellery.

Dolce Vita at Schloss Mönchstein #Swimwear


As i mentioned in my previous post before i was invited to enjoy a full day at the Schloss Mönchstein in order to relax and simpy have a good time in my beloved Hometown. Since i knew that an impressive infinity pool with a stunning view over Salzburg was waiting for me i had to grab this opportunity with both hands and shot a little swimwear editorial. When it comes to my looks for the beach or pool i have to say that in the past years i was always rocking my favorite bikinis but this year i completely changed my mind – this season i’m all about bathing suits in all different colors and prints. The black one itself is definitely the classic option which is surley a good choice if you are more into monochromatic vibes. But sometimes it’s also nice to kick this new season off with a bright and multicolored option. That’s why i also choose to wear this fun striped bathing suit which kind of awakens the child inside of me since i had a similiar one when i learned how to swim when i was three years old. Of course i’m still into biknis and without a doubt there are so many models out there that it can be tricky to find the one that emphasises your personal body type. Personally i’m a big fan of bralets that you can either rock with or without a strap around your neck. So since i’m still a little bit obsessesd with the color red i knew that i had to get my hands on something that had met these requirements. As well as these two bathing suits i found this red model at Calzedonia. They have a wide of all kinds of bathing suits/bikinis and so i ended up with an italian inspired bikini which has these super cute polka dots on it.

Nostalgic Moments


If you would take a look back at my blogposts of 2011 you would notice that i was a big fan of all kinds of hippie dresses. I guess it all started when i was still living in Salzburg where i also started my blog 7 years ago. I was shooting my daily looks in the backyard of my parents house without thinking that this will be my job one day. No stressing arround, trials and errors but always with a big portion of fun. At that time vintage wasn’t really interesting or let’s say a big thing. But when i found a really small ad in the newspaper saying ‚selling bunch of old/vintage goodies’ i knew that i had to check this one out. Who knew that this seller would become my personal vintage dealer for more than 5 years. I found so many treasures and unique pieces that that i’m still rocking today. So when i look at these pictures, which were taken in Porec 2 weeks ago, they kind of remind me of my early blogger days where my love for fashion and photography actually started – and i guess sometimes it’s nice to walk down the memory lane.

Me, Myself & Carla


Hello from Italy – i’m currently on a much needed vacation since may was a very intense month for me. It was about time to recharge my batteries and stay away from my computer for a couple of days. Luckily i still have some looks to share that i shot last month at the wonderful Schloss Mönchstein which i can highly recommend if you either live in Salzburg or visit this beautiful city. I was invited to check out the whole hotel and enjoy a wonderful and sunny day at the (infinity) pool with the most amazing view over my hometown. I had absolutely no clue that Salzburg has something like that but since Schloss Mönchstein is open for everyone, which means you can enjoy their individual offers without staying overnight. You can either have a lovely brunch at the terrace, book a relaxing treatment at their SPA or simply enjoy a whole day at the pool. So for the beginning i thought i would share my look that i was rocking that day. Since i was always a big fan of classic pieces i’m proud to show you my latest addition when it comes to handbags – the CARLA bag by Aigner. Usually i often tend to choose something with a little twist but i think it’s also important to have at least one bag that you can wear to anything from day to night for the next 40 years. Combined with my favorite mom jeans, this stunning blazer by Ganni (recently shopped from Carola – Viennawedekind) and this adorable mules by Högl i was good to go.

Lighthouse Festival 2017 X Zalando

Over a week ago Zalando invited 8 austrian bloggers the experience the Lighthouse Festival and without a doubt this trip was definitely of a kind. But where do i even. It all started on the 24th of May. I remember the moment when we, speaking of my blogger colleagues Raffael from The Lionheaded, Deea & Laura from Les Factory Femmes, Anna from Poschstyle, Christl from ChristlClear, Ilja from WayofJay and Hank from HankGe, all met and had absolutely  no clue that we will have a really long drive ahead – but i have to say these 14 hours  were probably the main factor that we bonded as a group for the rest of the trip.

So on the very first day we all took it very easy! Chilled breakfast, got introduced to our amazing villa, which got an upraded look thanks to the lovley people from our personal Heros & Heroines, and also got the chance to check out the Zalando Area which was located near the Light House. Of course there was much to explore that we didn’t even know where to start. We ended up walking around checking out all the day parties where a lot of people enjoyed all kind of music which leads me to the fact that the Light House Festival is not only about electro – there was so much more than this. The program itself offered a bunch of different acts, activities like yoga or roller coaster workshops but also places where you simply got the chance to relax. Especially at the Zalando Aera we found ourselves having fun with the mirror installations or lying in the huge hammocks and checking out the new pieces by Zalando while the sun was setting. Definitely another highlight i like to mention.

So since we had our own private Villa we always found ourselves connecting and having fun with each other – especially on the first official night out we let loose to the fullest. After having couple of drinks we made it to the Roller Disco and danced the night away like nobody’s business. Please don’t ask when we got home and how we felt on the next day – but it was absolutely worth it. The fact that we were always a big group made it even more special and so much fun. Although it always seemed to be simple and relaxed via our Instastories we were super productive and shot like a couple of looks each day. Besides the parties and the lovely conversations including lots of  laughters without end i think it's safe to say that we all had an amazing time together at the Lighthouse Festival! So once again big thanks to Zalando for inviting me and also to Heros & Heroines for taking care of us but also paying attention to every single detail that made everything even more special.

Holiday Vibes


When i browse through my recents purchases when it comes to clothing it seems that i’m currently loving colors more than ever. And after my obssesion with red i guess considering my current feed i jumped to a new one - orange. But is it the new black– i'd say only for summer! I will always be obsessed with a all-in-black ensemble but i guess right now i prefer something more fresh. Combined with my absolute favorite bag, which you can actually also wear around the waist like a fanny bag, i opted for a color blocking look ('Hello 2012' )I shot this pictures on our last day in Porec where i was invited by Zalando to the Lighthouse Festival (more about that soon) and felt so in love with the patio of our hotel – kind of reminds me of Miami and obviously fits perfectly to my look.

Summer Suit

Personally i’m a big fan of a suit. But the only thing that really bothers me is the fact that it can be quit hot wearing one during the summer time. So when i came across this beautiful two piece set which actually feels like wearing a pajama i knew that this soft material won’t have a sauna effect. Instead of wearing sandals or i opted for white sneakers which always adds a little bit more coolness to a classy look.

SPARK JOY w/ CARPE DIEM KURKUMA

As part of the Carpe Diem Family, as is like to call it, i’m proud to be one of six austrian bloggers to let you know that there is a new kid on the block. Back in April we were already invited to a lovely evening at the Neni Kochschule, where we tried to help in the kitchen but ended up chatting and sipping on the new Kurkuma drink – but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do – escape from your actual daily routine.

Of course, i love my work and i love the fact of being self employed and have the luxury of following my own schedule. But there are other things that make me happy that has nothing to do with my everday life. For instance, two weeks ago i spend an entire day outdoors, walking around without a plan and enjoying the city i live in which simply leads me to the conclusion that joy doesn’t mean living a perfect lifestyle that consists of traveling, buying (expensive )stuff or going eating out at a fancy restaurant – it’s all about enjoying the moments and the places that will stay with you like a good book. It’s funny, but sometimes you don’t realize that the smallest things are often the best.

The most recent was this shooting or let’s say my last visit in my hometown where i got the chance to shoot at the Palm House of the Kunstgärtnerei Doll. It’s a place where you find the most outragous flowers but it’s also a place where you can acutally book an event in order to have and extraordinary experience sourrounded by all kind of flowers and plants. Anyways, i wanted to talk about the shoot which actually made me feel like i was  right in the middle of the jungle. So combined with the new flavour ‚Kurkuma Sparkeling White Tea’ (which is a premium tea drink based on natural ingriedients)  in my hand it absolutley felt like a mini vacation and obviously boosted my mood – and i have to say this is just one simple way to spark joy in your life. 

Since the Hashtag to this product is #sehrsehranders (in english #reallyreallydifferent) i also adapted my look to the whole theme. As you can see i went for a complete different look – straight hair. It’s a hairstyle i rarely rock but like i already mentioned it before – sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and escape from your actual routine.

Pina Bag by Aigner


Considering my current instagram feed i have to confess that i have a slight obsession with the red. Out of nowhere i found myself craving this color like there was no tomorrow – especially when it comes to stripes i cannot stop myself thinking about getting a new shirt, dress or beachwear! But i was still missing one essential accessory – a red cross body bag! Lucky me the lovely people from Aigner ask me if i wanted to pick out two bags of their current collection and as soon as i saw this beauty i knew the search is over. So let me introduce you guys to the Pina Bag – which offers not only the right size for a walk in the city or for a night out it also adds the right amount of color to a simple look. I'm in love!

Zalando X Lighthouse Festival

Over the last few years the Lighthouse Festival in Croatia has become a very popular and well known festival brand and also a few of my friends were raving about it over social media. So of course i became pretty curious and i guess my subconscious desire was obviously heard. Because you know what – thanks to Zalando i have the huge honor and pleasure to attend this year’s Lighthouse Festival for the very first time. Along with a bunch of other bloggers from Austria i get the chance to experience Europe’s hippest festival by the end of May.

It’s all about dancing, listening to good music, swimming, drinking, realxing – simply having a good time in Porec, Croatia. Besides the wide-reaching line up the special thing about this event is definitely the fact that it is located at the seaside which gives you the ulitmate vacation feeling. But there are also pool and hip hop parties, a table tennis tournament, a roller disco (excited for that – definitely have to convince my fellow bloggers to join me in this case), a paintball field and so on.

Since we will be there for 5 days i’m still thinking about my outfit choices – it should be extremly comfortable but fashionable at the same time. As Zalando has so much to offer when it comes to brands i decided to mix high street brands with a piece of their premium section.  So my first look that i willl definitely rock in two weeks consists of a flowy dress, a big black hat, classic converse and of course this amazing cross body bag which is actually a must when you’re a attening a festival.

So for now i leave you with this look and keep you updated on my social media when we are off to Porec! Can’t wait to dance in the water!

Love at first sight | Striped Shirt Dress

Last week when i walked into Zara and saw this beautiful dress i knew that a new obsession of mine was born – red stripes. Of course it’s nothing new but in my case i always opted for blue. Stripes are always in style but this year i’m embracing more than just the classics. With this option i can easily get dressed up with minimal effort. Besides the fact that you can either rock this style with sneakers or sandals i have to say that a shirt dress is seriously underrated. Definitely give it a try this summer!

28th ROMY GALA


Getting invited to super special events here in Vienna where you not only get the chance to be part of an exclusive evening surrounded  by old history  but also get the opportunity to connect with interesting and fun people is definitely one of the best part about blogging. So when the lovely people of the PR agency Themata ask me if i want to join them to the ROMY GALA (organized every year by the daily newspaper Kurier), which is an austrian TV award named after the great austrian actress Romy Schneider, i immidiatly said yes.

Since a gala is an evening of glitz and glamour i was a little bit concerned what to wear but fortunately i was able to pick out a dress from Escada – a dream came true. I picked out this beautfiul red dress which was not only super comfortable but also inspired me to create an old hollywood look from head to toe.

Black Mom Jeans


Let me tell you – the fascination with all things #90s is still going strong – especially when we are talking about mom jeans. But you better pay special attention how they look on your body. Mom Jeans have this special look that will turn your outfit from boring to extraordinary without being super tight and uncomfortable to wear – quite the opposite i would say. So when i found myself wearing them on a regular basis i realisied that i was still missing a black pair. I don’t know about you guys but sometimes when i go out at night i feel wearing darker clothes compared to my outfits i’m wearing during the day. So whenever i decided to wear a black top and mom jeans i always ended up craving black denim. Luckily i found this amazing pair from H&M with has the perfect shape which allowes me to wear my favorite top tucked in order to accentuate my waist. Besides the fact that i’m wearing them on high rotation they are probably the perfect mom jeans for day and night!

Oh Salzburg!

Back in the days when i was living in Salzburg i honestly took the beauty of it for granted but whenever i have time and the chance to spend few days in my Hometown i always enjoy every second to the fullest. It’s always something special about where are you coming from because it’s your memories and it will always be a part of you. So exactly one week ago i finally got the chance to shoot at the ‚Staatsbrücke’ which is actually super crowed and almost impossible to shoot with no people in the background. Can’t wait to be back in two weeks!

SKIN TALK | Flawless Spring Skin

When it comes to skin care i think it’s always pretty difficult to recommend products since not everything is working for everybody. As a daughter of an expert in the field of beauty i was aware of the importance of skin care from a very young age.

Over the last few years i noticed that a lot of girls struggeling with their skin and despairing when nothing is working. One of the main advice i always suggest and preach for many many years is getting a professional facial beauty analysis – and i’m not talking about going to a store and have a chat with a sale associate. It’s super important to identify your skin conditions or concers by a professional esthetician before you keep buying stuff and experiment with all those hyped products out there that may not be right for you – because every skin is different, everyone has a different lifestyle, diet and so on which simply means everyone needs a individual treatment.

I’m someone who has sensitive combination skin and for more than 8 years i’ve been using Janssen Cosmetics. It’s a brand that i truly believe in and i’ve been hooked ever since i notice the change in my skin texture. The two products that i’ve been consistently using year in and year out are the Radiant Firming Tonic (step 1) and the either the Anti-Polution Cream (step 4) or the Detox Cream also by Janssen. These are by far my favorite products that have worked wonders for me. After i cleansed my skin properly i always use the tonic in order to prepare my skin for the next step. For the last couple of weeks i added two more products that i honestly really enjoyed. The Clinique freshpressed daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C10 %. This little container has a dual chambered design which keeps the Vitamin C fresh until mixed. You can either mix 2 drops of the activated booster into your moisturiser or directly on your face. You can use this product for about 8 to 10 days  Overall my skin looked more even and i noticed a fresher complexion.

Another product which i also added to my daily moisturizing routine is the La Mer Revitalizing Hydrating Serum. It absorbs into the skin without any greasy or sticky after feel. I have been using this beauty for few weeks now and my skin actually really loves it. It seems to be the perfect additon which provides moisture but als creates a more radiant complexion. Last but not least i always use my favorite moisturizing cream i swear by – the Anti Pollution Cream by Janssen. With a multi-active extract from flowers of the red camellia the cream strengthens the skin’s resistance to environmental pollutants. It’s an innovative cream for day and night which 100% help leave skin moisturized.

Diesel Two Piece


Mixing different pieces and creating a super interesting looks is definitely something i love doing every day - but sometimes i prefer dressing in an easy way. So when i was leaving for Salzburg for the weekend i was super happy to rock my new Diesel two piece set which is not super comfy but also fashionable at the same time. In order to brighten up the outfit i went for my favorite in-between-season coat which became such a stable that i can truly recommend. I never thought that get so much use out of it but sometimes the unexpected pieces always turn out to be the best!

Capetown | Pink House


Exactly one week ago i landed in Capetown for  the very first time. I had absolutely no clue what to expect but let me tell you – i had a wonderful time. Those of you who follow me on my instagram have probably seen a few impressions of my trip to South Africa where i was booked for a TV campaign with Teekanne (more about that soon). Of course i couldn’t resist getting one of my looks shot in front of a colored house in Bo-kaap that is one of the oldest and the most fascinating residental areas in the South African city of Capetown.

London w/ Bonprix


A little over three weeks ago i was invited to London to join the bonprix FashionClub Event. It alll started with a warm welcome at an old warehouse which is only available for events. Since we were invited to not only have a look at the upcoming collection we also got the chance to choose our favorite looks which we shot right away. Since the location had so many cool corners to offer i thought i might be a cool idea to shoot at the terrace which was right up my ally and matched perfectly with my outfit. Inspired by the fashion icon Victoria Beckham, i went for this oversized pants and a simple black shirt. Sometimes less is more. Besides the shooting i was super happy that i finally got the chance to share this experience with Bianca from Worryaboutitlater who also shot this amazing pictures!

Spring Make-Up | Gold & Glitter


Spring is without a doubt one of my favorite season right after Fall.  So i thought it's time to show you my favorite look i love to wear during spring and summer because what’s better to switch up your make up routine when a new season is knocking on the door. In order to achieve a nice and fresh make-up look i always start moisturizing my face. At the moment i’m using a Perfect World by Origins which is an age-defense moisturizer with white tea and a SPF 40. It contains several powerful natural ingriedients and essential oils. When it’s all settled in i always tend to use a primer which is a step that became crucial to me in the last couple of years. I’m not loving a particular one but over the last few weeks i start using the Sleek primer which definitley helps minimizing pores. 

Next step – foundation. When it comes to spring I like to pick things that feel quite light and fresh on the skin but still gives me a good amount of coverage. I’m currently a big fan of the Bourjois HealthyMix which really smoothes out the skin, doesn’t feel heavy and definitely gives you a lovely glow throughout the day. After applying a little bit of concealer and filling out my eyebrows i’m ready for some eyeshadow. Usually i always stick to my matte tones but for some reason i completely fell in love with glitter. Since i got this brandnew palette called ‚shining hour’ created by Kabuki for MAC (will be on the market very soon), i felt super inspired and stepped out of my comfort zone. For this look i went for the orange glitter eyeshadow which is obviously perfect if you love to add the ultimative shine to your lid. Personally i can’t not get over this product since each eye shadow gives you this amazing effect when you open your eyes. 

Moving on to the cheeks. Of course i’m still a big fan of countouring but for Spring and Summer i’m ready for some gold highlights to warm up my face. Currenlty i really admire the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder called ‚Bronze Glow’ which became such a hot product for me that i can highly recommend. To finalize this look i added a few layers of my favorite mascara byL.O.V to my lashes and put on some nude/peachylipstick(Number 162) by GOSH. So what do you think of this look?!

Oh London!


If there is one color that i rarely wear it’s definitely red. But as i mentioned in a previous post that whenever i’m traveling i often try to avoid choosing pieces that i wear over and over again. For example this red Hugo boss sweater which was perfect for my last trip to London. Combined with this lovley skirt and this amazing scenery i ended up wearing something a little bit more creative and different. Speaking of traveling - i'm currently in Capetown for a really cool project i'm working on together with Julia from OurcleanJourney. Super excited to show you the final outcome! So stay tuned!

Vienna Opera Ball with Swarovski | Le Beau Danube Bleu

When I moved to Vienna 6 years ago i knew that one of the things that i absolutely wanted to cross off my bucketlist was definitely ‚a night at the Opera'. It’s such an unique expereince where you're not only surrounded by old traditions but you also get the chance to dress up in a really spectacular way. So when Swarovski,  ask me if i wanted to join them at the Opera Ball i immediately said yes. Luckily i still had one unworn dress in my closet that was truly pefect for such an event, so i didn't reallly felt stressed out like i guess many other women do. It's simply the question number one – what to wear – but fortunately i only had to figure out what hairstlye i should go for. So when the day finally arrived i was full of excitement.

Along with Kathi from Ketchembunnies, who was my partner in crime fort hat night, and lovely Nina from YouRockMyLife we decided to shoot our looks, which by the way featured also a few pieces of the Swarovski Atelier Collection, at the Albertina.  At this point i would love to thank Nina’s better half Patrick from BecauseofLight for all the lovely pictures he captured before we kicked of the night. After hour little shooting we headed the Hotel Sacher where we were also invited to a super lovely dinner! I have to say that it was truly magical when we first stepped into the dining room. Three hours later the long wait for the main part of the evening was finally over! Right before we got served our last course we couldn’t wait any longer and made ourselves on the way to the red carpet of the Opera. 

Right after we entered the phenomal building we enjoyed a wonderful opening where we also spotted all the debutants wearing the shining tiara which was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Since Swarovski this year. The hours past by and so we tried to get the best out of this night. We checked out the Crystal Bar, spend a few minutes at the Swarovski box (Loge) and also made it to the dancefloor where Patrick took the time to dance with each of us girls. We had such a blast that i’m still super happy about this special night which is somehow a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So big thanks to Swarovski for this amazing opportunity.

A little Piece of Paris | 9th District

I can’t believe that Spring is almost here. It’s such a relief being able to walk around outside, listening to the lovley chirping sound and shooting after 4 pm without putting on 1000 layers in order to keep you warm. That’s why i decided to put together a look which features a few of my favorite pieces and rock this outfit at my favortie locatioin in the 9th district of Vienna. I remember shooting here 6 years ago when i moved from Salzburg to the big city – the 9th district was always super special for me. Compared to the other districts it’s definitely less crowed and busy – but that’s exactly what i love about it. Calm, quite and lovely to walk around. I can highly recommend walking through the Palais Liechtenstein Park and visiting the Servitenviertel where you should definitely have a look at the new Café La Mercerie which is probably the cutest french bistro you can discover in Vienna which obviously always inspries me to channel my inner parisian.

Last Minute Carnival Look

It’s carnival season in Europe and if you’re thinking about participating and planing to dress up, i thought i’d share two looks that you can achieve in less then 15 minutes. Of course not everyone wants to spend hours and a lot of money on a look that you only rock for one night. That’s why i found two looks, that are not only completely different compared to each other, but also super budget friendly.

The first look is all about stars & glitter. Especially when you always wanted to try out new make up trends carnival is probably the time to test-drive colored looks. In my case i kept it pretty simple and only added glitter under my eyes with the help of a few drops of sticky lipgloss. The second step is all about your personal preference – just apply skin clue on your tiny little stars and place them wear you want them to have. E voià – a new star child is born.

Remixing Fashion with Zalando

The high low style trend is probably the kind of style that became more and more popular over the last few years. It’s not only a way of keeping your wardrobe fresh for less it’s also a great way to get a little bit more creative when it comes to mixing high-end & high street pieces and proving that it is not about how much money one puts into an outfit!

Being a high-low dresser and mixing high-end designs with lower priced pieces is probably one of the best ways to create an interesting and relateable mix and match ensemble which actually shows the amount of style and chicness that comes from within. The key to high-low dressing is definitely splurging on items you can wear season after season – for example a designer bag that won’t go out of style, which is probably one of those pieces women love to invest in. But also a classic well-tailored blazer or coat works perfectly with low priced items that can elevate your whole look in a second.

So in order to welcome a new season – yes, spring is just around the corner - i’ve teamed up with Zalando to show you my personal high-low outfit that features a few items from their premium and streetwear section. The first piece i stumbled across was this amazing blue skirt by DKNY, which is actually a piece that you can wear on both sides but definitely acts as a true statement piece. So of course i intended to pair it with something a little bit more casual and opted for a classic black sweater from the streetwear section. To top things off i combined this look with this super comfortable but also affordable nude boots  from Topshop and this amazing bag also by DKNY which became my companion N°1 over the last few days!

How to transition from Winter to Spring | Statement Coat


Even though we are still dealing with cold temperatures it’s definitely time to start thinking about seasonal transitioning. If you are like me, you are itching to get out of those boring muted colors you’ve been wearing over the last few months – it’s definitely time for a pop of color in your life. But how to start dressing for spring without freezing to death in this still-wintery weather! The answer is definitley layering up with lighter pieces in order to be able to wear a  coat like this one which i found while i was browsing in the  'between seasons'-coat section of the online store about you. This much thinner and fashionable than a puffy one. Instead of choosing black i went for this coppery shade that spices up any look. I can also imagine wearing this oversized piece with mom jeans, a simple white tee and maybe some strappy sandals! Spring, i am ready for you!

Make your own Style Rules


I have to say that I’ve never been the girl who was only interested in one specific style since i always enjoyed being open about anything. From boho chic, to minimalism – i have tried it all. And that is what is it all about – experimenting and defining over time. The other day i looked back at the evolution of my style wich is a mix of everything. I went from girly vintages dresses to masculine looks. It’s super funny, especially when you documented everything and find looks you would never ever wear again – and who knows what i would say in 10 years from now. But one thing is for sure – a classic denim jeans will always be a staple you can wear for many years. Combined with stars and stripes, which adds a little bit more fun to the whole look, i was good to go when i headed to London last week.

New Look for Spring | Mini Skirt


If someone ask me what piece of clothing i rarley wear throughout the year than i would probably say mini skirts. Somehow i always felt way too girly whenever i tried to pull them off but over the last few months i felt the urge to jump back on the bandwagon and give it another try. The best way to do so is definitely whenever i’m traveling. Before i end up wearing my favorite pieces over and over again i often try to bring at least 3 pieces with me that i rarley wear. It’s probably one of the best way to force yourself to be a little bit more creative and at the same time you simply make sure to get more use of every pice you own. I have to say that i actually bought this skirt 3 with the intention to spice up my looks but since the temperatures dropped down back in december i obviously had to wait a little longer. Combined with a white tee i stealed from my mom’s closet, my favorite black cardigan and this colorful scarf i finally got the chance to wear this beautfiul A-lined black pleather skirt when i was visiting my parents in my hometown.

STYLE | Biker Coat

As much as i love wearing layers like there is no tomorrow i have to say that this winter was new challenge when it comes to staying warm but looking fashionable at the same time. Usually  i’m someone who loves to wear superlong coats and really gets excited when i’m finally having the chance to rock my favorite pieces but this year i found myself lusting over a different model – the biker coat! Ever since i got my hands on this beauty i truly ended up wearing it every day. What i absolutly love about it, is that it has a slighty masculine touch that can spice up any outfit. Combined with a blue skinny jeans and my new favorite shirt from Na-ked (look at those sleeves) i'm good to go.

What to wear: Ball Season

I guess a lot of you guys know that the first two months of the year  here in Vienna are pretty packed up with all kinds of balls you can imagine!One of the biggest question is definitely ‚What to wear’. I’ve teamed up with the Mariandl Shopping center in order to share with you my personal tips when it comes to getting ready for these kind of events! Attending a classic ball night is not only exciting but also a little bit nerve-wracking – which shouldn’t be the case when you follow a steps.

THE DRESS
Depending on the event you’re attending  you should definitely have to make sure to wear a dress that works for you. There are so many different options out there that it can be tricky to find the perfect gown that enhances your personal features. Personally i always love to get inspired when i’m not even sure what i’m actually looking for. In this case i can highly recommend Pinterest which allows you to create your personal board that helps you to define the search. Of course not everybody has the same bodytype – so in order to find the most flattering dress here is a quick overview (scroll down).

What to Wear: WinterWonderLand


Back in the game – and to be honest i couldn’t be happier. Originally i planned to take a little break from blogging and really focus on other things in order to get back fully motivated and energized. But oh boy – a really bad flu was waiting for me and a few days after New Years Eve i felt completly knocked. out. Usually i’m someone who’s super resistent when it comes to being sick but this time i had to deal with this super annoying situation for more than a week. But enough with all the negative stuff – it’s time to get back up and share with you my must have styles to get through winter. As you guys know i’m a big fan of layering but compared to summer, winter looks take a little bit more thought especially when the temperatures hit below zero degrees Celsius. So when you’re planning a trip to Winter Wonderland with the same condition i can highly recommend OVER-SIZED WOOLEN JUMPERS. They are so easy to throw on and look stylish at the same time. Since i’m not a big fan of fitted knit jumpers i’m happy that the men departments offer a bunch of loose options like this one. Another must-have when it comes to keeping me warm is definitely a cozy winter coat that allows you to wear at least 3 layers underneath. Instead of wearing antoher black one i opted for this DARK GREEN COAT that brings a little bit more color to my life. I’m beyond satisfied with the texture and look that i found myself wearing this beauty non stop. To top things off i went for my favorite black boots which i pimped with furry shoe insoles to keep my feet warm.
