#StoryofMyLife & #Instalooks

Do you find yourself apologizing constantly because you’re chronically late! Well this is the story of my life, because i have been late a LOT. At times i really struggle with being on time and i know a few reasons why and maybe you’ll find yourself in this article too.

First things first, i’m someone who hates to wait and see arriving early as waste of time (actually this is bullshit because there a few good reasons why arriving at least five minutes early is important and not only gives you a buffer in case something delays you... but in my case it's simply a bad habit). Another big reason why i’m constantly testing the limits of how late i can be is probably the fact that i simply sabotage my punctuality with random things before i leave the house - such a "devil on my shoulder situation". But i guess the biggest problem of all is definitely that i’m such a time optimist! I always assume everything will take under 10 minutes and after 9 minutes i’m still thinking that i can make it – am i alone in this case?!

But there a few moments in your life when a good excuse won’t change anything! Such situations like rushing for a plane, heading to a super important meeting or you simply don't want to be the center of attention when you're invited to a posh event and look 100% overdressed for the tube or the bus!  So  based on my experiences i like to think that there are always a number of circumstances affecting your punctuality! So a few weeks ago i got the chance to break this vicious circle with the limousines service called Blacklaneand oh boy suddenly everything went smoothly (that's probably also the reason why i look pretty chilled in every picture). So there was no stress, no running and no late arrival at all. I used this service mainly with there Blacklane app but it  also can be booked easily via on their website plus they also have 3 categories that you can choose from depending on how many people you are as well as your budget. With that being said i really hope to become a better person when it comes to punctuality and get rid of bad habits.

Different Shades of Grey

Isn’t this outfit a proper visual recap of different or let's say fifty shades of grey (ok - today i like to exaggerate a lot)! So I always knew that a mix of grey, white and silver would work perfectly but somehow i never tried to pull off this look! But why – the answer is easily found – Abundant Black Disorder (ABD) which is a common wardrobe dysfunction which means a closet full of black clothing and the irresistible urge to "buy it in black“! Yes, that happened to me a lot in the past but as you can see i’m not 100 affected but i’m definitely not a blank sheet neither! So this whole combo stuck in my head for quite some time and now i'm finally able to show you the outcome!

Superlong Cardigan

As you guys probably know i’m a huge fan of blazers in all kind of shapes because in less than two seconds you instantly look put together. But every summer I often struggle getting dressed whenever i’m trying to complete my look! Often my brain shuts down and i get this 'i don’t care about hot temperatures'  attitude and i end up wearing way too many layers. Of course i always regret my decision and melt away but i also have to say that in my opinion i never really had a good alternative which made me happy like my beloved blazers! But there was one specific piece of clothing which happen to be always on my wishlist for quite some time – a superlong light jacket which also gives you the ultimate feeling of being a superhero or just to have a little bit more drama when you’re walking down the streets. So long story short, a few weeks ago it finally happend and i found the perfect cardigan!

Favorite Combo

You know by now that i do love a simple black and white combo and that I’m rarely big on colors - it’s just something in me that is always drawn to neutral tones! That’s why i have another black & white ensemble to share with you guys! For me this combo is defintiely my favorite mix of cool, chic, and effortless! To add a little bit more jazz i decided to put on my favorite slippers - i had my eye on these shoes for a while but i was definitely not willing to pay the original price – simply too high! But as you guys know, waiting pays off and a few weeks ago Zara sale hit the stores – which is always super dangerous for my bank account - it’s so simple to find good stuff - especially in the beginning! So i ended up getting these slippers and i’m still happy about them!

If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably noticed that I was one of the winners at the Zalando Blogger Awards in the categroy „Best Newcomer“!  I know, i know – i’m not a Newcomer at all because some of you probably know that i started blogging back in 2009/2010 before i even moved to Vienna! Wow, time flies!
It was such a big surprise and i have to admit that i I never thought in a milllion years that i will ever receive anything like that! I know, i don’t post on a regular basis and every now and then i take a step back from blog but i’m trying to do my best because i honestly have to say that receiving this award gave me a little boost because nothing feels better than being appreciated and acknowledged for your work and efforts! Big thank you to the Zalando team and judges for picking me! I really appreciate it!
