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.
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.
Don’t ask me why, but my scale is currently trying to make me mad. I am not one to weigh myself on a daily basis since I have been around the same weight for a long time (which I am happy with). However, at the beginning of the Summer I started a new intense workout and have been SO good for the past 2 months. I’ve exercised between 3-5x per week and eaten fairly healthy. I was expecting to drop a pound or two before our trip to Portoroz, but instead gained some … So how do you stay motivated and keep yourself from eating cheeseburgers like there is no tomorrow? Cute workout gear! Seriously, it probably sounds so simple, but every time I add a new piece of workout clothing or equipment to my collection I get super excited about the first good sweat in it! Like my new Puma windbreaker, which I couldn’t wait to take out on a run earlier this week. Paired with a simple black and white look (which resembles most of my workout clothes) it adds the perfect highlight – not to mention the rosé gold zipper ♥ Soo, drumroll please for my new motivator:
August, we need to talk! After a fairly “weird” July (lots of rain & intense humidity) I expected a little more from August, but unfortunately we’ve been below 20°C all week and it has rained on a daily basis … high time to leave to country, right? At least it was a good reason to get my parka back out. On those rainy days, easy does it: A comfy pair of jeans, a casual tee and sneakers.
