Autumn/Winter Occasion Wear | Suits

Since highschool i was always a big fan of wearing a well cutted blazer that brought my look to the next level.  Of course I’ve talked in general about suits before but let’s talk about the one’s that are perfect for special occasions inlcuding weddings as well. So since we are already counting the days to the festive season and probably getting invited to a couple of events it’s not a bad idea to already think about what we are going to wear. Because i believe a lot of us share the same struggle each year - finding something that is elegant, special but comfy at the same time. Most of the time we often end up with the pieces we are wearing over and over again plus styled in the same way. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great when you rocking a look on high rotation but when you ask yourself how to get the most out of any piece of clothing than i always recommend two suits. Wether for going to work or going out the options are endless. It’s such a great alternative that you can not only dress up or down with different pair of shoes but you also get the chance to style them individually with different pieces. Luckily a lot of stores are stocking more tailored suits which i absolutely love but when it comes to the colder months i’m always looking for something special. Winter occassion wear an be tricky but in my case i found this amazing emerald green velvet suit from Madeleine. It’s truly a showstopper and something that i can wear from day to night – either with some sneakers or with a lovely pair of high heels. Instead of rocking my cross body bag in the classic way i decided to turn it into a fanny bag. It looks definitely more special and combined with my favorite baker hat i think i found something that you can also wear with jeans or a a cozy knit sweater.

5 Thing I loved this Autumn

STYLE – summer was great but when it comes to fashion i will alwways choose the colder months. I don’t know how many times i mentioned it on the blog – i’m a sucker for layers because you can simply wear anything you want. From hats, coats, knitwear, boots – the options are endless.

AUTUMNAL STROLLS are the best. Since i work from home i often miss the chance to have a little walk through the city or park. But whenever i get the chance to shoot during golden hour i always enjoy it to the fullest.

COZY NIGHTS – i guess a lot of people adore this season simply because spending a cozy evening at home with lots of scented candles and soft lightning  is something that helps you wind down after a long day at work.

RED WINE – in fact whenever the temperatures starts to fall red wine becomes my option number one whenever i’m out for drinks.

SITTING OUTSIDE – during the month of September and October i was fortunate enough to enjoy a few evenings at one of my favorite spots called Zum Schwarzen KameelLocated in the heart of Vienna this lovely place is not only a scenery upscale restaurant where you can just have a glass of wine but it’s also a place where you can truly imagine Vienna to have been in the old days.

Modern Detective | Snowman

The older we get the more scared we are? In my case i can definitely say that over the last 20 years a couple of things have changed and unfortunately i’m definitely not the same fearless girl anymore who can easily manage every situation – especially when it comes to moments that seem to be scary. Walking through a forest, going down into the cellar or simply watching a horror movie. All of this was never a problem when i was under the age of 10 but now as a grown up i truly changed. Of course it’s weird but instead of getting anxious all the time i’m ready to for a new challenge.
So since the Nordic Noir thriller called The Snowman (SCHNEEMANN) is scheduled to be released by Universial Pictures tomorrow (19th October) i guess it’s time to overcome a few of my fears. The movie is based on  Jo Nesbø 's global bestseller in which an Oslo-based police detective, played by Michael Fassbender (X-Men Franchise), investigates the brutal murders of several women with a unique calling card – the serial killer always leaves a snowman next to the victims.
The film was shot entirely in Norway and matching to the movie poster and to the main character, i adapted my personal detective look and went for a classic trench coat shot in the beautiful Augarten during the golden hour. I guess this outfit would be my signature look when i would have joined the elite crime squad, investigating the disappearance of the victims.

So for those who love to watch the terrifying thriller with a brilliant cast (Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chloë Sevigny, Val Kilmer and Academy Award® winner J.K. Simmons), i have something for you – head over to my instagram and just leave a comment which enables you to participate at today’s giveaway. All my lovely Austrian readers get the chance to win 2 x 2 tickets in order to watch the SNOWMAN (SCHNEEMANN). Good Luck everyone!

Stay true to yourself

When i started my blog 7 years ago i was one of those girls who were on the same mission  – finding a place where you can share your style and create content that inspires others to express their creativity. Over the years i realized that all of a sudden it became more – it turned into a business but more than that something that not only helped me to define my fashion style but also finding me as a person personally and professionally. Through blogging i found the courage to take action and become self employed not only with my blog but also as a videographer and photographer - which i rarley mention on my blog.

I guess a lot of people don’t see the progress that is going on behind a self created website or running a business – because there is more than just creating beautiful images or attening one event after another. Especially when it comes to blogging most of us share only the beautiful things in life but behind all that we all have those moments without glamour and duties that a lot of us have to deal with. Each year brings challenges and problems we would all love to avoid but in all honesty i think each lessons will shape us to the person we obviously need to be.

Make 2nd Hand your 1st Choice | True You

As promised a few weeks ago on my instagram i can finally share the outcome of my collaboration with True You X willhaben called ‚Make 2nd Hand your 1st Choice’. I often mentioned in previous blogposts before that i was always a big fan of second hand and vintage pieces as well. Personally i truly love collecting special pieces that come with miniature memoirs and get the chance to be revived. Over the last few weeks i got back into the mood of shopping pieces from other girls via willhaben but also blogger fleamarket or the one and only Humana is a place where you can score treasures that no one elses is probably rocking. So back in July i found an amazing Jil Sander trench coat via Willhaben which not only got redesigned by True You but also appeared on the runway during the MQ Vienna Fashion Week 2017 back in September. It was cool seeing a fashion show that consisted of pieces from the past i interpreted in a new way. It was definitely a reminder of mixing up my wardrobe instead buying new things over and over again.
