OUTFIT: floyd

Contrary to what my boyfriend believes, I actually do not own a lot of shoes. I have a few favorites, that I wear ALL the time, but I certainly don’t have endless choices. It usually doesn’t bother me, but sometimes (ie. sandals this Summer), I literally have just 1 pair that works and it annoys me. For this Fall, I decided to stock up on boots early enough, because by the time it gets cold and I realize that I need something warmer, all the good stuff is already sold out. In my quest, I managed to find THE most perfect leather boots ever: FLOYD! I am literally obsessed and have been wearing these non-stop since last week. Good thing there’s no Summer in sight, so wearing leather boots in August is totally legitimate! Obviously these are not the best idea for snowy days, but I don’t even want to think about Winter yet, so for now I am content and happy with my new Ash leather boots.

RECIPE: sugar free chocolate chia pudding

I seriously used to hate breakfast! Well, maybe not hate (that is a pretty strong word), but simply didn’t feel hungry that early in the day and saw no point in eating without the desire to. So coffee on the go it was. However, since I’ve been working from home for the past 2 months, I’ve made it a point to start my day right with a healthy breakfast. Nothing big, but all the more nutritious to get my metabolism going. I usually have greek yogurt with fresh fruit or homemade bircher müsli, but recently I discovered my love for chia pudding, thanks to Kathi. I’ve been having it for the past week or so and am slightly obsessed, trying different variations on a daily basis. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite creations with you guys: Sugar free chocolate chia pudding! It literally tastes like nutella … just sayin’!

OUTFIT: summer dreams

This Summer has definitely not been one to go down in history. It seems we had a few nice days in June, then had a super humid and rainy July and went straight into Fall … However, last week in Portoroz it finally felt a bit like I had imagined this Summer to be (and today the sun is out in Vienna – yay!!). Cut-off shorts, light airy blouses and lace bralets all day. I’ve collected quite a few of those pretty summer bras over the past few months, but my favorite summer essential is definitely my newest addition, the “sensual essence” by Triumph. This is my favorite vacation look with a little something lacy underneath.

FOR THE HOME: chinese garden stool

It’s been a while since I’ve updated things around the apartment, the main reason being that everything is basically furnished, so there is no room left for new items. Which is exactly why a chinese garden stool has been on my wishlist for over a year now. I first saw them somewhere on Pinterest and was immediately obsessed. Not the most useful item of furniture, but such a statement piece! Unfortunately, however, I never knew where to put it since there was simply no fitting space. Now, I am currently in the processes of re-doing our entry way in the hopes of creating more storage for shoes and jackets, which will clear up a little spot for the new stool for sure (at least that’s what I told Mike). Until then it is residing in our living room and I couldn’t be happier with the newest addition to our home! Happy Sunday
