As promised, here is goodie 2# of the day: I have teamed up with GIRISSIMA.com for a super fun giveaway. They were nice enough to let me create a Christmas wishlist with items of my choice, and 3 lucky readers will each receive one item from the list. Pretty awesome huh? I love shopping at GIRISSIMA.com because they carry a lot of quality brands that you won’t find in most of the shops around Vienna (for example I ordered my first silky Equipment blouse there) while still being on the affordable side! Some of these items may have appeared on my blog before – but hey, I simply love them! So now it is your turn, all you have to do is subscribe via GIRISSIMA.com (by clicking HERE) and leave a comment below this post to let me know which item from my wishlist you’d like to win. Good luck to all of you and happy weekend ♥
I am personally not a fan of winter wear – I think it is super hard to dress nice, because with temperatures around the freezing point, the only thing on my mind is keeping warm. However, every once in a while, I come across a piece of clothing that really makes me appreciate the cold weather! This was the case with this coat by French Connection, which I found on GIRISSIMA. It is absolut perfection in my eyes. Not only is it a gorgeous off-white (which is such a nice change to all the black winter jackets I have), but it also has amazing details that make it a special piece: the material mix, amazing cut & the off-centered zipper! With a jacket or coat like that, you don’t really need anything else. I went for all black, which makes the beautiful coat stand out even more, including the super adorable Carpena Elda cross body bag. I wore the bag twice already last weekend for going out – it is the perfect companion for a bit of dancing, trust me.
I feel like sometimes one piece can make an entire outfit. As you guys know, I love timeless items in my wardrobe, which are usually not the most exciting. But if you add a big sparkly necklace or a cool patterned sweater, it can easily transform a look. So this week’s cravings (one day late – I know …) are all about those pieces. Take that amazing Hoss Intropia jacket for example, all you’d need with that are some black pumps, skinny jeans & a simple shirt underneath and you’re ready to go. Or the way those shorts are styled on the model: all black + one eye-catching piece. It is such a simple equation, but it works every time – trust me :) Which of these items is your favorite?
Especially on weekends I usually find myself grabbing a simple pair of jeans, an oversized sweater and some comfy loafers. Then, before heading out I’ll add a glitzi necklace, a big watch or some statement earrings for a little “glam”. It is such an easy combination that is not only comfortable, but also totally put-together. I don’t actually own a pencil skirt yet, but I kind of like the idea of wearing one with a knit sweater, some biker boots and statement earrings. This week I am definitely craving these stunning earrings by Anton Heunis – which pair do you like best of the three?
