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.
Even though I would consider myself 100% of a summer girl, I’ve recently come to realize that my summer wardrobe could use quite a bit of improvement. For some reason I find it much easier to dress for fall, winter & spring, rather than summer. The reason may be that black skinny jeans are my favorite piece of clothing EVER – and they simply don’t work for warmer months. Last week, I was on a mission to freshen up my summer attire a bit, only to find that all the stores had already switched to the new fall collections. Sure enough I walked out with a big fluffy winter jacket instead of pretty summer dresses … On a hunt for something for summer, I finally got lucky at GIRISSIMA.com and found a perfect dress by Ganni, that’ll work with espadrilles for a casual outfit, but also with heels, sparkly earrings and a nice bag for a summer date night. Plus, it can easily be paired with tights, biker boots and a leather jacket for fall (even though I still haven’t given up hope that Summer will return). Definitely went straight onto my wishlist!
It is August, which means that our annual trip to Portoroz is coming up and I couldn’t be more excited! The weather in July was kind of weird this year here in Vienna, so I can’t wait for lots of sunshine, fresh fish for dinner and lazy afternoons spent on the boat. My ideal vacay outfit? A cute romper, espadrilles, bright summery nails and my new “swizzle” sunglasses. Let the countdown begin ♥
As you guys know, I am a sucker for statement pieces, such as a good animal print or a big glitzi necklace. However, lately I’ve found myself drawn towards simpler looks and more delicate items. Knuckle rings, thin necklaces or lace bralets – this Summer I am in love with the little details. Details can be anything from really dainty jewelry, a pretty pattern, a bra peeking out from under a summery top or the perfect shade of blush pink for bag and sunnies. This week I have 2 major crush items on my cravings list: That gorgeous bra by Triumph from their collection by Helena Christensen (which will be available in Fall) and the small Antigona by Givenchy, which has seriously stolen my heart in that color. What are your summer must-haves?
