OUTFIT: unexpected red.

In all honesty, I am not particularly fond of the color red. It simply has never appealed to me, and I don’t see myself as someone who pulls it off well. However, when I spotted this dress, it somehow hit a nerve – in a very positive way. I decided to take a chance on something unexpected for my closet and ordered the red off-shoulder dress before I had time to change my mind. Turns out, the color isn’t so bad after all. Actually, pretty awesome for Summer! While the dress is a bit too see-through to wear it here in Vienna, I simply turned it into a top by tucking it into my jeans, and I am sure that it will also work over a bathing suit for lounging by the pool on vacation. What do you guys think about the unexpected red?

OUTFIT: olympea

After an amazing 3 days in northern Germany last week, my head is filled with inspiration and my heart is full of appreciation. Not only because we got to talk about nature, trends and fashion with the trend forecaster Gemma Gambee or because my job allows me to travel a lot and experience so many incredible things around the world, but mostly because of the girls that I get to spend time with along the way. I have met so many true friends on this journey, and the 3 days at Schloss Ulrichshusen last week were a serious reminder of that. To me, those girls are not only smart, independent and very good-looking, but also incredibly inspiring. Kind of like muses – or modern day goddesses.

OUTFIT: Schloss Ulrichshusen

Good morning and happy Friday. While I am way up North in Germany for the #zalandosummerhouse, I hope you guys will have an amazing Friday before kicking-off the weekend. Today we’re off to explore the amazing nature up here, but before that I wanted to quickly check-in and leave you with yesterday’ travel outfit. I went from 15°C and pouring rain at 6am in Vienna to breakfast with lots of sunshine in Berlin, on to summery Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and 26°C. Naturally, a day like that called for lots of layers, including my new silk slip dress.

By the way, we’re staying at the manor of the Schloss Ulrichshusen and it is literally like out of a movie. So picturesque! Can’t wait to show you more of the area in a detailed travel diary next week.

OUTFIT: time for rain

After weeks of nothing but sunshine and blazing hot temperatures, we finally got some rain here in Vienna. Aside from the fact that the plants on our deck are no longer thirsty, it also felt good to dig out my favorite pair of black skinny jeans again. For an easy-going office look, I stuck to basics in black and added a boho-inspired jacket as well as my new Larsson & Jennings watch to the mix. As you guys know, I already have a black/gold watch by the Anglo-Swedish label, but have been lusting over their mesh chain metal watches for months now. All of the Larsson & Jennings watches are Swiss made – subtle, sleek & timeless! Plus, the silver is such a nice change and goes perfectly with the beads on the new kimono jacket.
