Even though I don’t go to an office anymore in the mornings, I still try to maintain a structured routine. My alarm usually goes off around 7:30 and then I get up 10-15 minutes later. Sometimes I workout in the mornings, usually I make tea and breakfast. Then I always do my make-up and get dressed, because if you’re working from home it is way too tempting to stay in your PJs all day and never leave the couch. Even though that sounds appealing on some days, I feel far more active and accomplished by the end of the day if I am actually presentable. Obviously I don’t dress up or anything, but a look like this one is my ideal “home office attire” on a rainy summer day. Oh, and incase you’re thinking “Didn’t that Dr. Denim sweater use to be yellow?” – you are right! But it is currently on sale at GIRISSIMA.com and happens to be the perfect summer knit – so having the same piece in 2 colors is totally justified, right?
The past two weeks have been beyond busy and I find myself craving a relaxed summer day, somewhere by the pool – preferably even the ocean. However, Mike and my schedule are currently super packed and there is no vacay in sight (except for a little 4-day getaway in August). So while I keep dreaming about the ocean, I had a look around some of my favorite online shops and found lots of beachy essentials that I would definitely take with me. I love that white, slightly oversized dress, which would look so good with tanned skin! And what better, than to take a dip with a cute, tropical bathing suite, like the one by Poko Pano, found via GIRISSIMA.com?

After a busy 4 days in Berlin, I arrived back home in Vienna late last night and can’t wait to show you guys tons of impressions from the past few days. First up: My outfit for the 3rd day of fashion madness! I was lucky enough to get to choose an entire look by FASHION ID which was sent to my hotel - I wanted something that was a bit more special, but also “me” and comfortable. The weather was absolutely mad this past week, and we had a constant trade-off between sunshine and intense humidity, as well as horrible rain and thunderstorms. Great timing for fashion week, right? I decided on a maxi skirt by Marc Cain, which was perfect for when it cooled down after the rain, but not too hot when the sun was out, paired with a timeless light blue blouse by Jake*s. I also choose a DKNY cross body bag, as it was ideal to have my hands free for taking pictures.
How do you guys like the look?
Sometimes all it takes is one single item to make an entire outfit! These pants by Double Ikkat, for example – they are so “wow” that they don’t require anything other than a casual white shirt. Even with such a simple combination the whole ensemble is a total eye-catcher. Usually I wouldn’t consider myself someone that wears such bold colors, but with this pair I can also imagine them perfectly for the next girls night out, worn with a silky white blouse and nude heels. For now I love them with flats and a bit of lace underneath a simple shirt. How do you guys feel about such a vibrant color?
