What happens when you pack your bags for a trip to Vienna assuming it will be cold and rainy, so you’re prepared for the worst weather and then all of a sudden it turns out to be the most beautiful weekend with lots of sunshine and summer temperatures galore? You just have to make the most of the things you packed. In my case, my big new wool coat was no option, nor were the boots I had packed for the rain. But since necessity is the mother of invention, I just ended up wearing the silk camisole I usually wear for sleeping and the flat slingbacks I put into my suitcase just in case my Aquazzura heels would hurt on the way back from Fête Imperiale. Also, I’m so into all sorts of lace bras at the moment, which was a lucky coincidence that added a little special touch to the look. The result: An outfit I would have probably never put together this way if I had been standing in front of my closet at home, but which I think turned out really coolkatie and somehow felt very much like “me”.
On an unrelated note: This past weekend in Vienna was not only super exciting because we were invited to Fête Imperiale, which was a lovely evening with even lovelier people, but also because we finally decided what our wedding bands will look like. After seeing Katie and Georg from Katie.g jewellery a couple of months ago to discuss some ideas and see different options for wedding bands, we were in their atelier for the final decision this Saturday and saw some mock-ups of our rings already. When it comes to jewellery I’ve always had a soft spot – especially if it’s jewellery with a special meaning, which basically almost all pieces that I’m wearing are. So seeing our wedding rings come to life was a very emotional process for me, and I can’t wait for the day we’ll exchange those rings while saying our vows to each other. But enough now with the mushy part. As a contrast to this emotional outburst of joy I present you my outfit which we took photos of – in a garage.
