Garden Tulln

Kring kring from Die Garten Tulln.
Hi, everyone.
Today I take you to Die Garten Tulln, a beautiful garden in Tulln, Lower Austria. It was beautiful day  (and hot) when I and my husband strolled around from garden to another garden with different styles, very nice for photoshoot spot. There are shabby chic, mediteranean, asian, vegetable garden, minimalist style, etc. My favorites are the dahlia and roses garden. The massive big blooms and colors are spectacular, we were just at the right time. Unfortunately I couldn't find cactus garden except a small corner in a glass room. I would love it if there was.

What I wore that day:

  • Linen jacket: LOGG by H&M
  • Long arm Tee with crochet details: I forget the brand. Old piece of mine I bought in Indonesia.
  • Jeans: CCS Legay Flex, a quick secondhand snap at Pfenniq Bazaar in Stuttgart (€5 for whatever clothes you can fully stuff into a paper bag)
  • Hat: Triset (bought in Indonesia)
  • Sneakers: ASICS
  • Sunglasses and camera pouch: Claire's. I bought at the mall but Claire's has online shop with international delivery here. They have cute and affordable accessories. Things I bought from it are happened to be my fave and I wear very often (this is not ad or affiliate). 
  • Backpack: Kipling


  • Die Garten Tulln opens every year from April until early October but you may want to have a chance to attend a garden exhibition (Gartenbaumesse) at one go. If you purchase entry ticket Die Garten Tulln you can use it as entry to the exhibition too, the exhibition only take few days so you need to check the schedule if you like to see. I know my post is too late :) but who knows you would like to go there someday in the future. For more information this is the official site: and events/exhibition in Tulln.
  • In front of the entry gate you can rent a canoe and rowing around the river.
  • Die Garten Tulln is not far from the town center. You can wandering around trough the nature path, or rent a bike (great place for biking), or take a free mini tourist train. There are nature swimming pool, shops, caffes, delicious ice creams, beautiful park along the huge river, a restaurant in a ship, stage, and Egon Schiele museum.

Garden and its tower.
Stepping up the tower and then looking down.

This retro camper is cranky. She doesn't want to move nor let me in.

Pumpkin soup and Apfelstrudel ( a must taste if you visit Austria)
Childhood flame. I know...I'm 30s I know.
I don't need SPF under this sombrero. I borrowed it in exhibition area.

Beside beautiful garden you can also take a high step up to the top of tower and look down and around (or use the lift).

There is also a restaurant facing a pool with its fountain attraction. It seems like the vegetables are picked from its own garden. my husband ordered Apfelstrudel (a must taste if you are in Austria). Unfortunately I only tried the pumpkin soup because I didn't feel well enough to eat more. I had suffered nausea since the night before, vomitted over and over again after I ate ginger chocolate followed by roiboos tea straight afterwards. I don't know what was wrong. 

Lately I have attended some exhibitions, shows, movies and other events but my outfits and photos were unfortunate hahaha, not sure if I should share you too many flop fashion stories or crappy pictures :-), I am afraid you will leave worse than uninspired. Well, let see. I hope you all have fortunate events anyway! Tchuss!

Smock and Culottes


This is not to a current outfit but it's today appropriate because it still warm here for a day or two. I wore oversized sabrina chiffon top with ruffle and smock details, oversized culottes, cheap black slippers which are very comfortable and my fave bag. I am happy with the volume, proportion and silhouette of the whole ensemble.

The top may be used in off shoulder sabrina neck line style. It is sheer so I wore a vest underneath. I altered the waist band of the culottes by moving the closure button so it makes a wider front flap as a result. The culottes has a heavy and thick denim cotton fabric which feels warm actually. 

When I went out to supermarket, I used my backpack instead of the shoulder bag and still I made a bit mess with my grocery. What so called an outfit picture boooo. :-)

Sheer top with sabrina neckline, ruffle and smock details, labels: chiffon, label unknown.
Culottes: cotton with satin details, label unknown (thrifted in  Jogja, my hometown)
Shoulder bag: leather, Romwe.
Slippers: synthetic leather, Syndicate store (old purchase).
Backpack: Kipling

Wish you all have a super inspiring day wherever you are and whatever you do.

Outfit: Shabby Garden

Halo, everyone. This is my outfit few days ago. All about light, airy, floral pattern mix and rough texture for summer day with breeze. If you google "shabby chic garden", this look is pretty much like it, but if you google "shabby chic outfit", it's not quite alike :-). Every garment I wear in this look is comfortable, laid back yet totally functional. My imaginary mood board brings my self back to Dries Van Noten and Anna Sui collection mixed with classic expedition, adventure, treasure hunter movie like The Indiana Jones. I always love this kind of style. Though when sometimes I think I am bored with it, every time I am browsing or window shopping or thrifting I'm always attracted to pieces in this style.

I bought the canvas bag in flea market for 1 Euro, I forget where it was. The hem is frayed, it even features a cigarette hole that it looks somehow "ugly" cool and strengthens the theme.

The sneakers were given by my sisters. They belonged to her. The color is already dull uneven that they look worn out but cool too. Somehow! Anyway, the soles and inner part are in a very good condition.

At another time I pair the same outfit with different shoes which were a pair of sling-back kitten heels I bought in annual charity market in our small town. I think they made my look looks heavier on top.

I would like my tunic smaller and my pants more tapered and have shorter legs so the look would be less floppy but I've count on my confidence hehehe. My tunic is indeed oversize, not made to be oversize, as well as the pants, except that they fit on the waist and upper hips.The pants' fabric is easily wrinkled, but would be smoother after few minutes wearing (minus the sitting marks). 

Tomorrow would be the first day of the apartment's heating to start on. It's getting colder because lately, one hot summer day followed by bad weather days in a row afterwards. This outfit has been thrown in the laundry and I would need my jacket all the time. How is it in your country? I wish you a nice weather and a super inspiring day!

Outfit mix: 

Floral tunic: light cotton, bought in Thailand.I don't remember where and how much. Maybe in a night local market in Chiang Mai. 
Floral scarf: light cotton, Levi's.
Pants: Lyocell, Mango. By the way, do you know Mango has outlet online shop? Awesome price!
Bag: canvas, fake leather look fabric, unbranded, fleamarket, €1
Sneakers: suede, Timberland
Sling-back kitten heels in tan: leather, 5th Avenue, charity market, €1
