CRAVINGS: with love from Vienna

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore ANNA Inspiring Jewellery, and the girls at the store recently commented on my ever growing ring-party, which definitely made me proud. My wishlist is growing daily, but unfortunately my birthday and Christmas are both still far away… (hopefully Mike is reading this)! For today’s cravings, I wanted to share some of the jewels that I am currently drooling over with you guys.
Obviously, ANNA is well-known for their delicate jewellery, but most of you probably don’t know that lots of their signature pieces are made right here in Vienna, only a few steps away from their store in the 1st district in order to minimize the route of transportation (=pollution control). They also make sure that all their gold is certified and from non-conflict areas so they don’tonly create beautiful timeless pieces, but also work sustainably and create those rings, earrings & bracelets I love to much right here in Vienna. Happy Sunday!!

TRAVELS: Montreux

The past 3 weeks have gone by in the blink of an eye, but at the same time it feels like ages ago that I had my last day at my old job. I’ve been on the go non-stop, got on 6 flights and packed/unpacked my suitcase 4 times. Coming home always feels good, but traveling is my passion and I am so thankful for all the places I got to see and explore these past 3 weeks. Amongst them, the quaint little Montreux in French Switzerland. Last week I spent 2 days at Montreux Jass Festival with Parmigiani Fleurier and it was simply amazing! We had so much fun with the girls (Anna, Sylvia & Julia), lunched by the pool, saw Van Morrison live (!!) and got to explore the history of the brand Parmigiani Fleurier, which was SO impressive.

NEW IN: “mise en dior” tribal earrings

Some of you may have already spotted my new earrings in yesterday’s outfit post. I have been obsessed with the “mise en dior” tribal earrings ever since I saw Anna wear them – she was one of the first to have them and I’ve spotted them a ton since then. The more I saw them, the more I fell in love. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the modern take on such a classic piece. Also, they can be worn as “normal” pearls as well, which I like. The tribal earrings have been sold out non-stop and I had basically given up on owning them any time soon. Then, this past Saturday I walked into Dior and they had one last pair left, because a girl on the waiting list never showed up to get them. Sometimes we have to get lucky, right?

OUTFIT: patterns & bling

While my style isn’t too wild usually, I still like the idea of mixing unexpected items, like fancy jewelry with super easy sneakers and a patterned top. As you know, I simply adore statement jewelry, whether it is big necklaces, stacked bracelets or sparkly earrings – they always work for me. Even paired with a casual mosaic top and converse. Currently, I am absolutely obsessed with Anton Heunis pieces. You may remember my first pair from my NYE look, but this gold and white version is simply too die for! Not to mention perfect for summer.
