WELCOME SPRING! OUTFIT FOR COLD WEATHER

Back from the holidays

Hey there, so good to be back! How are you guys doing? How did you spend your Easter holidays? I hope you are all well and ready to get back in business. 🙂

Today I want to share with you the last outfit for cold weather, since the weather is so gloomy here in Bucharest. Who knows when cloudy days may return? This is why I have prepared this “cold-spring” outfit for you.

I must say that in this #outfit post I am wearing two of my favorite clothing items in my wardrobe: my burgundy faux-fur jacket and my most beloved ZARA jeans.

An outfit for cold weather

I only buy my jeans from Zara, because it is the brand that I trust the most in terms of high quality denim. I have been looking for a good pair of ripped jeans for months, until I have found the ones that I am styling in this Fashion post. They are one of my most beloved pieces. They are super versatile and comfy and you can wear them with almost anything, from an elegant blouse and high heels, to a casual T-shirt and sneakers. A perfect outfit for cold weather!

STYLE MUSE: KRISTINA BAZAN

EN:

I have decided to start a new Fashion series, called “Style Muses“. In this series, I am going to choose one fashion influencer that I really admire, and share with you my favorite outfits ideas and trends, inspired by the selected influencer.

Today’s Style Muse is Kristina Bazan from Kayture.com.

I have been following Kristina since she began fashion blogging, 7 years ago. In fact, she is the first person to ever inspire me in the fashion domain, and the reason why I started fashion blogging a few years ago. I have always admired her classy yet playful style and, even though she has changed a lot over the years, I can say that I would still wear any of her outfits. Ever.

At the beginning of her blogging career, Kristina’s fashion tastes were focused mainly on very chic and colorful clothing items. Lately she has started to adopt a darker, more rock-ish style, which I equally like.

If you want to find out more about Kristina, make sure to check her blog and Instagram, I have linked them both at the end of the post.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorite Kristina Bazan trends, that YOU can also rock and get inspired from: Continue reading

I have always wanted a long, grey coat, it is a very versatile piece for the fall-winter season. So when I found this one in H&M, I immediately bought it, since the price was also pretty accessible compared to other similar ones that I have seen in other shops.

3 LAST MINUTE VALENTINE’S DAY OUTFIT IDEAS

Valentine’s day is just around the corner ( I mean, like, tomorrow ). For the ladies who haven’t decided what to wear yet, I have prepared a list of 3 outfits which are perfect for a Valentine’s day rendez-vous.

Even though I am not a big fan of Valentine’s Day – love should be celebrated every day, couples should always do fun things together and people should express their feelings of affection every day, not only once a year – I know there are lots of people out there who really make a big deal out of Valentine’s day, so I am here to help.

Here are the three outfits that I have created in order to give you some inspiration for this occasion: Continue reading

SOMETHING ABOUT FRIENDS

EN:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

It is extremely unfortunate that so many people with huge potential are wasting their time and capabilities because they allow the wrong “friends” to influence them. And it is not necessarily about the fact that your closest friends have a big impact on your behavior, which is also true, but it is more about the people you choose to spend your time with, choice which tells a lot about your personality, expectations and perception of life.  Continue reading

Lately I have been going through a pretty rough phase and I have lost my motivation almost completely, for a short period  of time. But now I have been working on regaining it, and I have started to think about this subject a lot, read articles and watch YouTube videos, and I have realized that too many people around me are only reacting to their lives, to the things that happen to them, instead of making things happen for them, because they have lost their motivation, and I find this extremely disappointing.

SOMETHING ABOUT DREAMS

Hi, everyone! This is my blog. It’s been here since 2014, but I haven’t had the courage to share it. Until now. That is why this post, about my experience at GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show, will be in Romanian, for all my Romanian friends and acquaintances, who will now – hopefully – become the majority of my audience. I will translate the main ideas of this article at the end of the post. Until there: I WON SECOND PLACE! Thank you all so much for your votes and for your support!

În ziua în care am văzut anunțul pentru cea de-a treia ediție GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show pe pagina de Facebook GLAMOUR Romania, am dat click imediat pe link-ul care m-a trimis la pagina cu detaliile despre concurs. Am aruncat o privire rapidă peste trendurile propuse pentru ținuta de concurs și imediat am știut ce voi alege: accente masculine (voi fi sinceră, nu am ales acest trend pentru că am simțit că mi se va potrivi cel mai bine sau pentru că așa mi-a dictat inspirația de moment, ci pentru că era cam singura categorie care se potrivea cu garderoba mea).

În ce a constat concursul, pe scurt: fiecare participantă a trebuit să își aleagă o ținută în conformitate cu unul dintre trendurile toamnă-iarnă prezentate pe site-ul revistei GLAMOUR, și să trimită poze cu ea purtând acea ținută uneia dintre cele 11 ambasadoare GLAMOUR, listate aici. Ambasadoarele au ales 10 fete pentru echipa fiecăreia, iar pozele noastre au fost publicate pe platforma de concurs. Publicul ne-a votat cu note de la 1 la 10 timp de câteva săptămâni, iar media acestor voturi a contat în proporție de 50% pentru nota finală, restul de 50% depinzând de un juriu de specialitate, pe baza ținutelor din seara evenimentului.

SUMMERTIME SADNESS

_dsc7179

I have always been the type of person who loved rainy days. Don’t get me wrong, nothing motivates me and energizes me more than looking at the blue sky on a sunny day, but the smell of the air after the rain and hiding under a blanket with a cup of tea or hot chocolate… priceless. That’s why my absolutely favorite season is, without any hesitation, fall.

I am in love with fall fashion, maybe because I have always had this weird thing – and I hope I’m not the only one – for getting all covered up and cozy; it makes me feel safe. When I was little and there was a storm outside, I would go and sit in the corner of my room, between the bed and the wall, with one of my toys, both of us covered in a blanket, and not only would I feel protected, but I would also feel comfortable and happy. Therefore, the simple action of switching from tank tops to fluffy sweaters, from sandals to boots and from cardigans to coats, to me, is the equivalent of opening a Christmas present.

HOME

DSC_0072

They say “home is where the heart is”. For me, home is the place where I grew up, because only there I feel like myself, I feel happy and motivated to develop myself, because there are too many distractions anywhere else. There is no place where I feel better than at home, surrounded by everything that, until a while ago, I have completely forgotten to love – the mountains, the forest, the wild flowers. To me, my hometown is the most beautiful place on Earth.

NEW IN

 

Yes, I am talking about my new and beloved Zara pants. As soon as I saw the adorable pattern I grabbed these pants and I went to the changing room. After trying them on, I hesitated for a moment because they didn’t look that good with the shirt that I was wearing at that moment but, after several minutes of playing with outfit combinations in my head, I decided to purchase them. The fabric is pretty high-quality from what I have noticed so far, after wearing them only three times.

THE PLAID SHIRT

From what I can remember, as soon as I purchased every item of this look during the summer, I knew that I would pair them in this exact outfit. I have ALWAYSSS wanted a red plaid shirt, because it is a timeless piece, and my mother agreed, but not in the good way. She said that it is old fashioned and that she had one herself when she was my age, but I bought it anyway, because I knew that there are endless ways in which you can wear this item.

WHITE AFTERNOON

 

Absolutely in love with this awesome weather! Even though I’m a huge fan of layering and of cozy items, I must admit that I kind of missed wearing skirts and sleeveless tops. 

Later edit: the day when I had this shooting was NOTHING like this day when I am posting it. It is raining and it’s awful. Think I’m gonna wear a long coat, because the umbrella simply isn’t enough for this storm.

But, let’s get back to brighter days.

SPRING IS MY SEASON

 

Aaand it’s here! Spring has finally arrived, and I couldn’t be happier about it. If you ask me which is my favorite season, I will probably say that fall is my absolute fave, but, as soon as the trees begin to bloom and everything becomes fresh and green, I start having second thoughts. Spring is so full of light and color, it fills me with joy and optimism.

WHAT’S IN MY CHRISTMAS / NYE PARTY CLUTCH?

If you’re anything like myself, then you are completely ready for the Christmas party or for the New Year’s Eve party, the outfit, the venue, the schedule, right? ( just kidding *still looking for the perfect dress* ). But, in order to have the perfect night, you should be prepared for – not every situation, because that means that you should bring a backpack to match with your dress – most of the situations that you may encounter in the given circumstances. As we all know, a clutch isn’t the most welcoming place for all our necessities, but here are some of the things that I always try to fit inside a wide enough clutch:

YOU CAN STAND UNDER MY UMBRELLA

This outfit has been created especially for my new and beloved Stradivarius scarf. You know that feeling, after you have just bought a piece that you really like and you feel that you want to wear it forever? Well, that’s how I feel about this scarf. Last week I went shopping, looking for a black leather jacket. After a five minutes tour inside Stradivarius, I haven’t found any suitable jacket, but I spotted this adorable scarf. I analyzed it for a long time, I tried it on, but I have decided to leave it there, because I wasn’t looking for a scarf and I didn’t actually need it, because I have so many at home.

DENIM AFTERNOON

The story of this outfit is simple: once upon a time ( actually, at the beginning of this summer ), I was sitting in my room, reading Elle Magazine, when I spotted the cutest combination: denim shirt plus black jeans. In the picture, they were paired with a black leather jacket and black ankle-length boots, but I have decided to change the idea a bit, because it was too rock-ish for my mood at that moment.

I have bought this entire outfit, except for the jewelry, as a gift for myself for passing all the exams with good grades. Initially, it was not an outfit, because I haven’t bought all the pieces at once, but I have always wanted a pair of white Converse sneakers and a denim shirt and I really needed a pair of black jeans, so I decided to spoil myself with some new clothing items.

TIME OF MY LIFE

When I was in middle school, I would always hear people saying that high school years were the best, that it would be the time of our lives and that we would always remember this experience. They were completely right. 
It’s been exactly three months since I finished high school, and today, since I was feeling a little nostalgic, I’ve decided to take a look over the photos from our prom, and they just reminded me of all the beautiful experiences that I had during high school.

AUTUMN MUST-HAVES (PART 1)

September is right around the corner, and I am really looking forward to wearing my autumn clothes again. Fall is my favorite season for fashion. I don’t know exactly why, but I just love wearing cozy items such as sweaters, scarves and jackets. I have always loved preparing my wardrobe for the fall season and bringing all of my layering items on the rack and thinking about new ways to mix and match them.

 

Here are some items that we should all have in our fall wardrobe:
Every girl/ woman/ man/ person should have at least one white shirt in their wardrobe, because it’s such an easy to wear item, since you can use it in an elegant outfit or in a casual outfit. It is also a must-have item for the back to school season, especially for those of you who have a dress code or a color code at school.

BUTTERFLIES ON MY STOMACH

 

Summer is almost over, and it’s about time for me to start listening to Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness”. In my opinion, the 1stof September is not such a sad day, at least for those who don’t go to school that soon. But for them, and for everybody who is just as excited as I am for the “back to school” season, here is a cute outfit, to brighten even the darkest autumn day.
