CRAVINGS: shorts, please!

Those that follow along on Instagram (@vickyheiler) have probably seen that I am currently in Croatia, enjoying a few days off and lots of sunshine. When I was packing for this trip on Wednesday, I noticed that while I have plenty of espadrilles and bathing suits, my closet does not offer too many options when it comes to shorts. Which is what I am currently craving. Last year, I got a pair of One Teaspoon denim shorts, which I have been wearing a lot, and last week, I ordered this pair by Cameo, which I think would also work for meetings. I definitely want another pair of One Teaspoon shorts, but also need shorts that can be worn to the office.

CRAVINGS: ocean breeze

It’s been a while, since I’ve dipped my feet into salt water and I cannot wait to head down towards Croatia in a few days for some sunshine and relaxation. Inspired by hues of white and blue, fresh fish from the sea and driving south with the wind in my hair, I’ve put together a set of (late night) Sunday cravings. The best part? Almost everything on my list is currently on sale and I am seriously loving that beach towel by Temperley London – paired with those Schutz sandals  ♥ What’s your favorite thing on the list?

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!!

CRAVINGS: Louis Vuitton Noé

It’s no secret that bucket bags have become quite the must-have since last year. It took me a while for them to grow on me, but now I have officially fallen for the convenient every-day bag. There were quite a few different bucket bags on my radar, including the obvious Mansur Gavriel, this version by Saint Laurent and a few others. In the end, however, I kept coming back to the Noé by Louis Vuitton.

In strict chronological terms, the Noé is the second oldest Louis Vuitton bag. Its birth date of 1932 places itself at the start of an exceptional decade that saw the creation of other Louis Vuitton icons: the Speedy, the Alma and the Keepall.
The story of its creation is the stuff of legend. Looking for a stylish way to transport his valuable vintages, a champagne producer placed a special order with Gaston-Louis Vuitton. He designed a timelessly simple bucket shape, which could hold four bottles upright and a fifth upside down, secured with a supple leather drawstring. He called the bag Noé – in reference, it is said, to the biblical hero who, when he left the Ark after the Flood, planted vines on the mountains of Ararat.” (via)
