OUTFIT: wearing Ioana Ciolacu

During Berlin Fashion Week this year, one of the shows I couldn’t wait to see was the Designer for Tomorrow Award. I think a newcomer award is always a great opportunity to discover new talents, and I was especially curious to see what Ioana Ciolacu (the 2013 winner) had in store, since her mentor during the post-award process was Stella McCartney. During the show I instantly loved the light colors, lots of white, pale pink and big prints. Personally, I always appreciate when fashion on the runways is actually wearable, and with Ioana I immediately felt like most of her pieces would totally work for me. For today’s outfit, I styled my favorite top from her capsule collection via FASHION ID in a typical “Vicky Look” – pointy shoes, a bit of leopard, white, black & gray.

OUTFIT: saying good-bye

I think it is safe to say that it is officially time to say good-bye to Summer. While we had a few warm and sunny days at the beginning of the week, the weather forecast is looking slightly depressing. Nothing but rain for the next 5 days … meaning I don’t think bare legs will happen again anytime soon here in Vienna. Luckily, however, there are plenty of other spots around the world where the sun will stay a little longer and this pretty dress by Bonsui can make another appearance (hint, hint). My favorite way to pair dresses during the week is with casual sneakers and a practical cross body bag – how do you like to wear dresses for every-day-attire?

OUTFIT: sun’s out

For a while there, I wasn’t sure if we would ever see the sun again. It started raining on Sunday afternoon and literally did not stop until Wednesday morning … But at least those rainy days make you appreciate a little sunshine all the more! Today called for a colorful “chanel-esque” blazer and mirrored sunnies. The blue and yellow tweed jacket from GIRISSIMA.com was such a steal! Marked down 80% from over 200€, it is now only 45€ ♥ Lots of sunshine + a good deal = happy Vicky!

OUTFIT: sporty habits

Don’t ask me why, but my scale is currently trying to make me mad. I am not one to weigh myself on a daily basis since I have been around the same weight for a long time (which I am happy with). However, at the beginning of the Summer I started a new intense workout and have been SO good for the past 2 months. I’ve exercised between 3-5x per week and eaten fairly healthy. I was expecting to drop a pound or two before our trip to Portoroz, but instead gained some … So how do you stay motivated and keep yourself from eating cheeseburgers like there is no tomorrow? Cute workout gear! Seriously, it probably sounds so simple, but every time I add a new piece of workout clothing or equipment to my collection I get super excited about the first good sweat in it! Like my new Puma windbreaker, which I couldn’t wait to take out on a run earlier this week. Paired with a simple black and white look (which resembles most of my workout clothes) it adds the perfect highlight – not to mention the rosé gold zipper ♥ Soo, drumroll please for my new motivator:
