I just got back from Milano last night and am still in love with the amazing time Kathi and I had there this past weekend. Definitely #bestgirlstripever!! We only had about 44 hours in the Italian fashion capital, but we made the most out of it. The main reason for our trip was the Confession of Design exhibition with some super talented Austrian furniture designers (tomorrow on The Daily Dose), but we also had some spare time to explore the city. The weekend involved lots of gelato, Aperol-Spritzs with every meal (except breakfast …), exploring the Duomo, visiting a Hermès furniture exhibition in an old palazzo on Corso Venezia (major love!!) and much more … there’s a travel diary coming up later this week – so stay tuned for that! On Saturday, we headed to Via Tortona for aperitivo, but when we realized that about 300.000 other people had the same idea, we decided on a more relaxed dinner at the charming Osteria del Binari. With the perfect spring weather in Milano, I decided to take out my new white blazer by SET for the first time, paired with a bit of leo and my favorite black skinny jeans. Black, white & leo – always works, right?
The best way to fight the Monday blues? Sequins, of course! I don’t know why, but the second I spot something glittery, I am usually sold. Remember these pants? Well, now I came across the perfect sequin blazer, also on GIRISSIMA. I love how versatile they are too: you could totally wear this ensemble with heels and a more dramatic make-up for a night out on the town, or, as I wore them to work and meetings. Sequins always work – easy as that!
My personal uniform goes a little something like this: black skinny jeans, a silky top, a pretty blazer and a touch of animal print. Depending on the day’s agenda I’ll either grab loafers, sneakers or a pair of heels. The pieces from today’s outfit were love at first sight and so “me”! By now, I already own 2 pairs of those coated skinny jeans by Hallhuber – they are the best fit I’ve ever had, so I decided one extra pair wouldn’t hurt. Better be safe than sorry! Also, the Hoss Intropia blazer is absolute perfection with the neutral color scheme and those amazing metal details sewn to it. Manuela shot these photos at the stunning Kaiser-Suite in the Schlosshotel Velden and I wish someone would take me back right now! Happy Monday everyone!
You know why I love wishlists? Because you actually think about the items you place on there – and then, you look for reasons why you desperately NEED them! Some disappear from the wishlist after a while and are quickly forgotten due to a lack of good reason, others stay on there until the purchase is made. Those of you that remember my March wishlist from GIRISSIMA.com, probably recognize the dress and clutch worn in today’s outfit. I love how at first I thought the dress would be perfect for lazy days spent at the beach eating ice cream, but then I was actually able to style it for the office. We had a first taste of warmer temperatures here in Vienna last week, and while the cold wind is back this week, spring is already in the air – SO. EXCITED. FOR. SUMMER ♥
