First of all, happy new year guys! I hope you enjoyed the two weeks of 2019 so far..
Sometimes, I am very bored with my winter closet. Because as you might know, I tend to go with the same ole’ jeans and a thick cardigan/knit. Also, I love wearing dresses and skirts in the warmer months. Therefore, I wanted to incorporate a summer piece and show you how I style it without freezing. Let’s be real, we don’t want to sacrifice our health for fashion. 🙂 By the way, this outfit can be worn to a romantic dinner because you will look cute and you are kept warm at the same time.
I bought this checked mini buttoned dress by Bershka in Vienna. Under the dress, I threw on a basic black longsleeved top which gives the look a 90s kind of vibe. Underneath the summer dress I didn’t wear tights, I opted for thick black leggings. I like wearing these instead of tights because I find them more comfortable and they also put some structure to your outfit. I finished the look off with my favorite edgy combat boots and thick grey socks to further ‘winterize’ the look – is that even a word? Haha!
Lastly, what is an outfit without a cool bag? I’ve been living in my mini 90s baguette bag which goes effortlessly with any look. Soon I’ll write a bit more about this baguette bag. So keep your eyes peeled!
The days before and after Christmas are the busiest for me because I spent much time with family and my partner. Lastly, I have to run a few errands before the year is over.
Let’s summarize 2018 in 3 words: personal growth • creativity • struggle
This year was quite a roller coaster for me because the universe tested me a lot. I was about to give up on my dreams. Plus, I am quite a crybaby due to my water sign (my star sign is cancer if you haven’t known by now – haha). This year taught me to accept that things in life change and sometimes you have to take another direction to make it. Also, I made a promise to myself to be braver in my actions and not to care about other people’s opinions. Furthermore, I want to be more open to new opportunities. Thus, I am ready for the dark unknown paths of life. I am also emotionally and physically stronger because I am trying to leave my anxiety behind. My biggest weakness is overthinking and perfectionism. Therefore, as I’ve mentioned I want to take more action and ‘think less’. Lastly, I am really glad that I am taking my health more seriously and try todo sports at least twice a week.
Creativity is written big this year. I am improving my photography and my editing skills. I even started to edit short clips for Instagram. Reintroducing traditional art into my hobby was my biggest joy of the year. For me, it’s a form of meditation and therapy. And, I draw and paint as often as I can.
Something to be excited for in 2019
Finally, I will marry my best friend in summer and I will let y’all know where and when. By the way, Jan and I got engaged in beautiful Croatia in October 2017.
Now to the last words… I want to thank my family and friends for everything and I want to thank you for reading and liking my content ❤️ , it means a lot to me. Now, I am more confident in the things that I do as failure makes you stronger. All in all, I am satisfied with 2018 and I am so ready for the next lessons of 2019!
Maybe, you’ve noticed that I am not much of a haul hoarder and like to style the things I already have. Furthermore, I like to shop for things I need in my wardrobe and sometimes for trendy stuff. But this time I wanted to share with you my black blazer with animal prints that has been in my closet for many years. It is actually a gift from my mother. I have it since I was a kiddo and it is not a joke ;-)! Before that, I used to hate it due to the animal print and the overall shape. And now I am appreciating it.
This blazer is something I would wear to festivities like a fancy Christmas dinner. The collar of the jacket and the buttons feature the animal print, also it is of mid-length. Plus, it has its matching dress which has the same prints. By the way, I don’t know the brand of this blazer but the quality feels really good and it held up all these years. Unfortunately, I only linked 2 blazers that look quite similar like the one I have on.
Furthermore, I styled a pair of ankle cut blue jeans with the vintage piece which goes wonderfully well together. This outfit can be worn with white pumps or if you prefer the more edgy look you can style it with black combat boots.
Do you have vintage pieces in your wardrobe that you see in a new way?
Soon Christmas is knocking on our doors and the year is almost over. So I wanted to share my personal gift guide. Furthermore, this gift guide should attract different kinds of people. Therefore, I hope there are a few bits and bobs that you can include in your own Christmas gift collection.

The vintage lover
I love vintage fashion that is why I included vintage bags, fragrances. Plus, vintage-inspired fashion clothes.
This list is for the females who enjoy spirituality, women empowerment and relationship books.
The beauty lover
I am not much of a beauty hoarder but I put a few things that I use like the Dr. Bronner soap, the Baremineral products and of course a dark red nail polish.
Being on trend or just being fashionable is what you are looking for? Then you’ll love this list because I included the latest bags, shoes and some must-haves for the fashion lovers out there.
The lifestyle & unique gift lover
This is for all the people who love handmade stuff or unique art prints. You can decide if you fancy colorful watercolor art or a digital minimalistic drawing and much more.
It’s been a minute and I have to admit that I’ve been lacking in inspiration. Even the most genius people lack creative motivation sometimes. That’s why I don’t want to be so hard on myself. Plus, I have been putting my energy on different things like building a small sustainable business, drawing and spending time with my loved ones.I also think that if you do something completely different it can help you gain your creativity back! Okay, enough with the long introduction!!
On Saturday we drove to our favorite city Frankfurt. We ran a few errands and visited a new spot to grab a cup of coffee. The coffee at Wacker’s Kaffee shop was very good – much better than Starbucks! Moreover, I didn’t even know that it was a very well known Café in Frankfurt.
After that, we had dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Where we ordered kimchi, miso soup, fried rice and much more. I highly recommend you to check MoschMosch if you haven’t done it already. 😉
I decided to go with a not so new outfit which is from last year but I haven’t paired the pieces together.
I like to infuse colors like red, orange and yellow to bring some warmth into an outfit. Therefore, I opted for a mustard colored thick jumper. I think I won’t ever get rid of this jumper because it goes with everything in my opinion. I can see myself wearing it over a midi/maxi dress/skirt in black. Also, it can be worn with skinny high waisted jeans in blue and black or tucked in some comfy mom jeans.
As you can see, I wore my checked pants over black tights to keep my body warm. The checked print was very popular last year and I am very glad that it is still trendy at the moment. This vintage print/pattern will stay with us for a long time. So keep your checked prints :-)! Lastly, I completed the whole look with my black Chelsea boots which you have seen so many times.
I hope you enjoyed the little update and see you in the next post!
