pattern mix – everything mix

guys, please excuse my absence this past week but my days have been super super busy. at work we have reached the high season of business and also hosted a party last week that had to be organized, i was travelling back and forth between vienna, salzburg and carinthia, tried to squeeze in my precious girls nights and kept the household in good nick because my family and my boyfriend are coming to town today. why? you will find out very soon! as we are speaking of girls night outs and boyfriends, yesterday it was my turn to host our little get-together with judith and vicky. we ordered an exorbitant amount of sushi and wanted to watch austrian extreme sportsman felix baumgartner jumping down from the universe – i think we all know how that went down, poor felix 🙁 but we didn´t let this little disappointment ruin our night and so we were able to fully concentrate on our sushi without any distractions, which led to a massive food overdose and three pigged out girls. vicky was (like always these past few weeks) kind enough to take those pics of me before we started with our asian feast. the weather in vienna took a turn to the cold side, so you really have to wrap up in several layers of clothes – we call that “zwiebelsystem” in austria and i´m a big fan! 
to come to an end with this post, i just wanted to say that i was right about those leather skinnies – i have a good feeling that they will be a permanent companion in this cold season. how do you like my new shoes btw? i´ve completely fallen in love with them!

a few days ago i met up with vicky after work – we went for a walk through a park near my apartment, took some photos there (thanks so much sweety), got some sushi to take-away and spent the rest of the evening on my huge and cozy couch. since i work in a job where i have to dress very offical and also was sick last week, i really felt like throwing on something super comfortable for the night. so i cuddled up in my thick, oversized sweater and big scarf and felt better right away.

jumper/blouse: h&m

pink.

cozy, girly outfit for a dinner with special people – vicky´s little sister moved to town! every single piece of what i´m wearing is a favorite of mine, but the leo pants are simply one of the best things i bought this last year and the ways to combine them are endless. paired them with a light pink blazer and i was good to go!
thank you so much guys for the awesome time i got to spend with you.

and here is the pic that i took right before i left:

in celebration colors.

on tuesday, we celebrated the birthday of our good friend judith, whom i grew very close with over the last couple of months. she is just such a warm, independent and caring person and i´m very thankful for everything that she has done for me since i moved to vienna. judith celebrated her special day by inviting a couple of friends over to her place and prepared the yummiest snacks and drinks. we had a really nice evening at her apartment but somehow i felt so incredibly tired the whole time and now i now the reason why – i´m lying in bed right now having a cold. enough of the whining, let´s move on to the outfit.
i really wanted to wear my new glitter flats from forever 21 and paired them with my glittery sequin clutch and a sheer chiffon blouse with ruffles on the front. to dress the whole look down a little bit, i then decided on two denim pieces – red jeans and a short denim jacket. 
(as always, thank you so much vicky for these pics)

50 shades of leather

i´ve been spotting leatherpants everywhere lately, in the form of leggings, in black, silver, gold, red…the variations and combinations are endless! i love to style them with feminine accessoires like this sparkling statement necklace and soft materials to create a contrast to the harsh leather! since there are so many possibilities on how to wear leatherpants, i´m really looking forward to try out some new combinations over the next time! 
for the night out with my lovely friend vicky (we went to “motto am fluss” for dinner and drinks) this was the perfect outfit – nothing too fancy, but comfortable and stylish enough to spend an evening in this really great bar! also, it got really cold real fast in vienna, so the time for ballerinas and light blouses is over! you might have noticed how often we girls meet up since i moved to vienna and the weekly meetings (sounds like a therapeutic session and it kind of is actually haha) really mean a lot to me – chatting the night away while sipping on yummy drinks – is there anything better?
(thanks to vicky for those wonderful photos)
