What is it about girls and jewels? Not without reason is there a saying that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. While I only own a few “real” pieces of jewelry, which were all super special gifts from either my dad or boyfriend, I own a fairly extensive collection of “fashion jewelry”. I like to add a bit of bling to almost every outfit I wear, whether it is a big statement necklace, golden watch or sparkly earrings … just can’t get enough! And it is such an easy way to dress up a simple look. For my April wishlist, I found some stunning pieces on GIRISSIMA.com, which are not only absolutely beautiful, but also affordable. Win-win situation, right? Which combination is your favorite?
You know why I love wishlists? Because you actually think about the items you place on there – and then, you look for reasons why you desperately NEED them! Some disappear from the wishlist after a while and are quickly forgotten due to a lack of good reason, others stay on there until the purchase is made. Those of you that remember my March wishlist from GIRISSIMA.com, probably recognize the dress and clutch worn in today’s outfit. I love how at first I thought the dress would be perfect for lazy days spent at the beach eating ice cream, but then I was actually able to style it for the office. We had a first taste of warmer temperatures here in Vienna last week, and while the cold wind is back this week, spring is already in the air – SO. EXCITED. FOR. SUMMER ♥
For me, Sundays are sacred. I cherish it as the one day per week that is dedicated strictly to sleeping in, coffee runs with the boyfriend, watching movies and amazing food! We always have my sister and a small group of friends over for our “Sunday cook-outs”, where we try new recipes and spend most of the afternoon in the kitchen together. It has become a tradition and my favorite part of the week! On today’s menu: thai summer rolls, satay chicken with peanut sauce and homemade macarons for dessert. Obviously I don’t want to be in my sweats when we have people over, but I am also not a fan of dressing up for a casual day with friends and family. My go-to look is usually a comfy sweater, favorite jeans and whatever else I stumble upon. This week, I have teamed-up with Opus-Fashion for a casual Sunday look that I’d love to wear today! Stripes, comfy jeans and a cool hat! My favorite fashion equation is always “stick to basics and add one or two highlights” – in this case I feel like the hat makes the look complete! How do you guys like to spend your Sundays? Whatever it is you’re doing today – I hope you have an amazing 7th day of the week!
It’s been a while since the last Sunday Cravings, but with my birthday coming up next weekend there are plenty of things I am currently craving! Over on The Daily Dose I already shared my wishlist, and today I wanted to share a little outfit craving for the party next Saturday. Even though I definitely like feeling special on my birthday, I also want to be able to celebrate the night away without being stuck in a tight dress or uncomfortable clothes. Usually, for my birthdays I stick to a typical “Vicky outfit”. Black skinnies or leggings, a silky top, statement earrings or necklace and a clutch. Throw in a pair of amazing heels and the look is perfect – at least in my books! This year I’ll be celebrating at my favorite restaurant with an intimate family dinner, followed by a party at the bar with around 30 people. If I had a little extra change, these items found on GIRISSIMA.com would go straight into my shopping bag! What would you guys wear to your own birthday party?
