Some things are meant to keep us grounded

romanian label blouse ie pleated skirt

If you love traditional Romanian blouses as much as I do, you probably already know that they are an essential piece in every fashionista's wardrobe. And this statement is more valid than ever this summer. I've already worn my other two blouses in very casual and relaxed outfits and noticed some other fashionistas style them in myriads of ways. When I picked up this beauty from Romanian Label I instantly had in mind a classy and elegant look. The pleated knee length skirt keeps it close enough to the original folk costume but also gives it a modern twist. The choice of color and pattern in my blouse were not left to chance. I made sure that they are representative for the region I grew up in.

Taking steps is easy, standing still is hard

I am slowly but surely building up a collection of dragonfly printed apparel (and my dragonfly tattoo should probably count as well). I guess I am raising an army of dragonflies, or a swarm if you will. This dress was a birthday present I received last year from a dear friend of mine, which makes it double special. And with my birthday just around the corner, I am drawing a line and trying to assess how my style has evolved in the past year. I have been wearing a lot more color and have been more creative with my hair colors as well. I am pretty excited to see where my style journey takes me next.

The lazy sunbathers

I have a pretty fair complexion and I prefer to keep it that way. I don't spend too much time in the sun and I always wear sunscreen. I do like to swim, so when I am at the pool I like to relax and read in the shade after doing some laps in the swimming pool. We've got a long weekend ahead of us, so hopefully my pictures will inspire you for some fun activities. Time for me to change into my bathing suit and take a dive in the pool. Have a great weekend, kittens!

I'm going back to 505

traditional romanian blouse hooundstooth shorts red Zara bag

On our last day in Portugal we took the train back to Lisbon. We still had a couple of hours to kill before our flight, so we walked around town for a bit, went to the botanical garden, took some pictures and gazed in the windows of high end stores along Avenida da Liberdade, sighed and moved on. I wore a traditional Romanian blouse which I paired with houndstooth shorts because I wanted to go for a more unconventional and unexpected combo. I've had this blouse for years and I used to wear it a lot with a pair of ripped, patched and studded jeans and called it my etno-punk look. I do like this look better now, and it can work really well with jean shorts as well. I still have to sort out the pictures from the second half of our vacation which we spent in Porto and I will be posting them soon. Stay tuned!

Keep calm and drink Port wine

We've moved over to the beautiful city of Porto a couple of days ago and pretty soon our vacation here in Portugal will draw to an end. Needless to say, Porto is just as charming as I expected. If you're following me on Instagram you might have already seen a few landscapes and landmarks that caught my eye. Of course, the Porto experience is not complete without tasting some varieties of the world famous Port wine - definitely a delicacy. As cheesy as it may seem, I couldn't help myself and thought as long as I am in Porto I might as well put on my sailor romper and take a stroll down the river. The pictures were taken at sunset in front of the City Hall, in the Avenida dos Aliados.
