Ready for 2018!

So over the last few days and especially during the holidays i’ve been a little M.I.A. With the intention of recharging my batteries to the fullest i finally got the chance to avoid anything work related and i can honestly say that i needed this break 100 percent. It truly felt so amazing spending most of the time at my parents hourse. But all good things must come to an end. I’m currently on the way back to Vienna to not only celebrate New Years Eve with my boyfriend but also to take the advantage to play a little bit more tourist in the city i live. I guess that happens to a lot of us – you move to a city you fell in love and then all of a sudden you stop exploring and stick to your favorite places. Before i moved to Vienna i was super interested getting to know every single district and simply walking around like you would in a foreign city. With the beginning of 2018 i’m definitely eager to change that and maybe a few other things as well – but i will leave my personal goals til the last possible moment since i will always be a total last minute girl.

Speaking of last minute which pretty much describes the last shooting i did before Christmas and somehow it turned out to be one of my favorites. Together with Julian who launched his blog TWINETIQUETTE one month ago we decided to shot a few festive looks in a beautiful scenery. Since we had a clear vision of the location we spontanously got the chance to shot at the wonderful Hotel Altstadt Vienna which is located at the Kirchengasse 41 in the 7th district near the city center. It was absolutely perfect for our editorial and we felt inspired right from the start.

I went for this lovely lace dress from Holy which is still available at Peek & Cloppenburg. I wore this  beautiful piece at a wedding winter a few weeks ago and i couldn’t ask for more. It has the perfect length, a rich blue color and a super flattering feminine cut. So since the Alstadt Vienna offers a lot of different rooms which have been designed by renowed architects like Matteo Thun or contemporary fashion designer like Lena Hoschek it was an absolute dream to not only take all these pictures but also create a short film at such unique and charming place.

Sporty Spice

If you wolud browse through my blog you would probably notice the fact that i am someone who’s rarley wearing sneakers or anything sporty. I’m actually pretty versatile when it comes to fashion since i’m not a big fan of limiting myself but somehow i never end up rocking a simple look with sneakers combined with minimall pieces. But there are times when i get bored of my usual  style and love to try out a new direction. So while we were in London i stumbeld across these sneakers which are  obviouly inspired by a well known brand. Usually i’m not a big shopper when i’m travelling but since these pair were on sale i couldn’t resist. Combined with my new grey high waisted trousers by Madeleine, a simple top and my favorite coat i was ready exploring Notting Hill in the most comfortable way.

Christmas Feeling

I guess i’ve mention it a couple of times ealier this month but over the last few weeks i realized that i became a litle bit obsessed with red. Especially when i was in London i found myself wearing this color almost every day.

So right now i’m finishing all my projects and hopefully my editing marathon will be done by today. Unfortunately i still had no chance to experience the pre-christmas time and i’m defintiley looking forward to have at least one mulled wine here in Vienna before i’m off to my hometown where i can finally shut down my laptop and enjoy this wonderful season – which was actually my intention. Embracing winter in full force and cross off a few things that i actually wanted to do before heading to Salzburg. Like ice skating, strolling around the Christmas markets or visit a few of my favorite bars during the day (yes to day drinking). But at least the last couple of days weren’t stressfull and i managed to tackle my overwhelming to do list and get everything ready for 2018.

Denim Lover

I can’t believe that it’s been already a month since i’ve been to London and still had no chance at all to post anything about our amazing vacation. Whenever i’m in a different city i’m always trying to change up my looks a bit. I don’t know why but somehow traveling inspires me to get out of my comfort zone and rock pieces in a different way.

In the past couple of years i had never done a denim on denim ensemble before. It was something that i used to wear when i was teenager but unfortunately i wasn’t really a fan during my Twenties. It’s such a cool look which you can obviously also choose to wear during the winter time – especially when you feel the cold you can simply use it as a layering piece. Paired with a light sweater and another coat i was ready to explore London without freezing a bit.

Belvedere Vodka X Joma #makeadifference

December 12th – it’s about that time: the season to be jolly. Compared to last year, where i ended up working till the very end before i headed home, i can  finally say that this year is different. I truly can’t wait for next week when i’m surrounded by my family and enjoy a wonderful time. No deadlines, no projects just having relaxed moments. I still have a few things zu cross off of my to do list but not in a stressful way (let’s hope so). So besides shopping or let’s say finding the perfect christmas gifts for my loved ones i think it’s also important to think of others.

So why not ditch the guilt and make a purchase or in this case choose the right restaurant that combines the good feeling of charitable giving? Nowadays there are more opportunities than ever and that’s why i’ve teamed up with Belvedere Vodka who recently has launched the 2017 limited edition red bottle, in partnership with (RED), to support the work of the Aids-Hilfe Wien and its fight against HIV/AIDS.

With the help of the restaurant JOMA which is offering  not only a special dish called ‚Red ‚n’ Roots but also a delicious cocktail called RED Blackberry Fizz  50 % of the revenue go directly to the Global fund which drives real impact where it is needed most. I already had the chance to check out everything and that's why i can highly recommend stopping by in order to make a difference.

Red Alert

If there is one color to be seen in this season it’s red. From accessories to a red on red  look i can truly say that this color trend is definitely one of my favorites – and even during the Christmas time i can’t help but to wear red. Instead of rocking this trend from head to toe i decided to create a much more simple look with a few pieces that i wear on high rotation. For example this super cozy striped turtleneck by Madeleine that became an essentails for me over the last few weeks maybe because it always adds a little parisian chic to any look.  Combined with a pair of high waisted denim culotte, a red beret and this super elegant black coat also by Madeleine i was good to go. With the help of my Julian (who btw finally launched his new Blog ‚TwinEtiquette’) we shot this back in November. I honestly can’t believe that 2017 is coming to an end. So much has happened and i'm truly grateful for this year. We still have one month to go but instead of making the same mistake like last year i'm really trying to get everything done in the next two weeks in order to have a relaxed Pre-Christmas period since Vienna has so much to offer every season. So ready for some mulled wine!
