Those of you who have been following the blog longer might still remember there was a time when I used to share a lot of outfit posts. Along the way that stopped, even though those were some of my favorite posts to write. Why? I’m not really sure. I think on one hand I just stopped having someone to shoot the outfits – after I moved to Austria – on another hand I just stopped feeling good in my own body. But that is all in the past now!
I had been playing with the thought of starting to post outfits again. Sure, I sometimes find my own outfits boring, but maybe it would help me put some more thought into them, right? So today I thought of sharing with you what I wore for my father in law’s birthday lunch on Sunday.
Here is the birthday outfit:
Ok, it is pretty obvious that I was a bit nervous about taking these photographs. But hey, I hadn’t shot an outfit in a very long time.
Since the weather was going to be good – 18º C – I thought it would be a good time to wear my skirt again. It’s a simple black skirt from H&M and I find it to be very comfortable to wear and because of the color it’s also easy to combine.
I wore it with a blouse from Primark – Burgundy is one of my favorite colors ever and it looks great paired with black!
Black ballerina shoes go with everything and these are already over one year old, bought at Deichmann. I think you can still find them though, as they were the second pair I got (if it fits, why not buy a second pair when the first is broken, right?). I also like that they’re easy to clean and because they’re not so fancy, I don’t mind wearing them when going to the countryside like on this day.
I also took the chance to wear my new choker/arm candy from We Are Flowergirls. We could choose one to bring with our goody bag at the FashionCamp Vienna. I have to say it was so hard to choose one, if I could I would just have taken them all!
As you can also see, I also used my new iPhone cover, that I also got the chance to get at the FashionCamp from the lovely Anna. I finished the outfit with my dark-blue bag in Chanel-style and that was my outfit.
