OOTD || THE AUSTRIAN OUTFIT DIARIES
Oh hey… fancy seeing you here!
It’s been a minute, I know – I’m sorry! Life has been happening and blogging has been put on the back-burner. Who knew that planning a wedding (while working full time) was somewhat time consuming. Not me…
But I’m backkkk (with a blog post I was meant to write last year)!
As some of you may know, earlier last year I was in Europe. The majority of my time away was spent skiing in France which meant I was either decked out in ski gear, or super comfy warm clothing trying to let my muscles recover. However, the rest of the time was spent in Austria, which meant I needed to slightly up my fashion game from the trackies (Aussie for track suit pants/sweat pants/joggers) and beanies I had previously been sporting.
If you’ve ever been to Austria you will know what I mean when I say they have some truly stunning architecture and Linz is no exception! As with many other Austrian cities, the city centre is filled with cobble stone streets and historical buildings – photo settings that I do not stumble across in Sydney – the perfect blogging opportunity!
I went over with grand plans- I couldn’t wait to test out my brand new Olympus Pen E-PL9 camera and 45mm lens and shoot a whole series of blog content… but that’s not exactly what happened.
You know those days when nothing goes to plan, well I had one of those. After charging my camera over night, heading in to town to shoot with my personal photographer (aka Flo my husband) and finding a pretty street, we were all set to go. Or so I thought…
It wasn’t until we went to take that first snap and Flo was presented with the ’empty battery screen’ that everything fell apart. It turns out I hadn’t packed the correct charger. To say I was slightly disappointed would be an understatement. So I’m sorry guys, instead I present to you iPhone photos and only one outfit.
While the calendar said spring, the temperatures said otherwise (at least for an Australian coming across from the end of Summer). With temperatures around 5-10 degrees it was important to consider warmth without compromising on style when putting together outfits. Midi-skirts, light-weight knitwear and warm jackets were my solutions to a warm, albeit, chic outfit.
