OUTFIT: a night at the Opera

Some experiences are simply #bucketlist worthy. Whether or not you live in Vienna, the Opera Ball is definitely one of those things. Every year, I’ve followed along on TV, but always imagined what I would be like to actually be there. Well, this year I got to experience the ball. Naturally, one of the most important things for the night was finding the perfect dress. Back in December I already shared a little preview, and today I can finally show you the entire look, shot with the stunning Opera in the background! Since so many of you asked: I found the dress at Peek & Cloppenburg and it is by the Jora Collection. The selection of dresses at the cocktail departments of both P&C stores here in Vienna is amazing, and I actually had a hard time choosing just one dress… But once I put on the peachy nude dress with the embellished body, it was love at first sight. Timeless and elegant, just the right amount of sparkle and an almost perfect fit (I had it altered just a little around the waist and the length adjusted to my heels).

Be mine, Mr. Valentine!

In the 8 years that Mike and I have been together, we have never celebrated Valentine’s Day. Why? Certainly not because we don’t love each other, but rather because my birthday has always been the next day – and that probably won’t change anytime soon. As soon as the clock strikes midnight, it is all about blowing out candles, toasting with bubbly and receiving presents. None-the-less, I am still an absolute sucker for everything that includes a few hearts and lots of pink. Feel free to guess what my birthday decor usually looks like! Just because Mike and I don’t celebrate the 14th, doesn’t mean I don’t treat myself to a little something pink. This year, we’ll be in Abu Dhabi (= lots of sunshine) and I can’t wait to wear my new Valentine’s ensemble from Triumph Lingerie underneath a light and airy top, which will show of just a hint of that pretty pink embroidery. Who cares what the boys think about Valentine’s Day when we can spoil ourselves with pretty lingerie, right?

CRAVINGS: brunch on Sundays

Today has been somewhat of a blur. Too much fun last night, a tad too much vodka and way too little sleep. A combination that I don’t enjoy much, to be honest (at least not the results), but every once in a while it is ok to celebrate that typical hung over Sunday. Luckily, we had made plans with friends to go out to brunch today, which was just what I needed. A hot shower, some fresh air and true comfort food in form of a Mexican breakfast. Admittedly, my outfit was not as stylish as this one, but that’s what cravings are for, right? A simple combination of denim, a silky white blouse and sweater with some ankle boots and a delicate bangle make for pretty darn good brunch attire – if you ask me.

OUTFIT: bubblegum

After all the black yesterday, I decided to pull out this pink Cameo beauty (currently on sale for -50%) today. Pink is not a color I’ve worn a whole lot lately, but the structured cut was love at first sight in this case – how fitting with Valentines Day just around the corner. Add a bit of soft pink fluffiness in form of a jacket and super cozy boots for some bubblegum action. Oh, and just to let you know, the temperatures are around freezing here in Vienna today, but I took off my warm jacket just for you guys, in order to give you a better glance at the cute top. Better hope mama bear doesn’t see these photos …
