CRAVINGS: legging love

Even though we’re currently blessed with quite a bit of sunshine here in Vienna, you can tell it is definitely Fall. Once the sun disappears, it quickly cools down and gets super chilly. My must-have piece for those days is a good pair of leggings. I love how easy they are to wear, while still being so versatile and stylish. Throw on an oversized sweater and biker boots with your leggings, and you’re set for a day in class or a cozy day at the office. Pair them with heels and a sequin top, and you can take them out to dinner with the girls. While I already own a fairly extensive collection, I can’t wait to pick up a few new Fall trends this year, such as corduroy or herringbone. Founded more than 35 years ago by two female artists in New York City, HUE has been the most innovative force in fashion legwear for more than three decades. That’s why I’ve teamed up with the brand that has focused on leggings for so many years, to style two looks from my Sunday Cravings this week.

CRAVINGS: … that come true!

Over the past 2 years, I have totally changes my shopping habits. When I first started working full-time, back in March 2012, it was overwhelming to have a monthly income of my own and I basically felt like the retail world was mine (or so I thought …). I would casually stop by ZARA, H&M & Co. after work, just to browse. Sure enough I usually left with a little something in my shopping bag. Now, a blouse for 50€ may not seem like the world, but 50€ on a regular basis adds up to quite a bit. After about 6 months, I realized that I wasn’t even wearing most of those pieces I had recently acquired. It was time to think over what I wanted for myself and my wardrobe, which is when I quickly came to realize that I wanted quality over quantity. I constantly find myself going back to the same items in my closet, while others stay ignored – even with tags still on. That’s why I decided to shop less, but choose well. And it has really worked for me personally. I now own lots of items that I truly cherish, such as my Isabel Marant “Poppy” heels or the Stella McCartney Falabella bag. I take better care of those items and value them more because it wasn’t a spontaneous buy, but something I actually thought about.

CRAVINGS: perfect pairs

I love finding joy in the little things in life – like when you find THE perfect nail polish to match a pretty pair of pumps. Or delicate lace undies that make a big knit sweater feel all the more luxurious while lounging on the sofa with a good book on a rainy day. That is why today’s cravings are all about those perfect pairs that simply work together so well (at least in my opinion). What are perfect pairs for you?

CRAVINGS: autumn prep

Yesterday I nearly fell right back into bed when our outdoor thermometer showed a chilly 12°C on the display. That’s when the truth hit hard: Fall is really here! I’ve come to realize that it is definitely time to say good-bye to summery outfits. However, I am trying to make the best of the situation and am distracting myself from the cold temperatures by doing a bit of autumn-appropriate online shopping. These items are currently on my Fall wishlist – what’s on yours?
