I finally managed a short while ago to pull out my fall and winter clothes from storage. And by storage I mean under the bed. Yeap, so I swapped them with my summer clothes and it's always such a nice surprise to rediscover all those cozy sweaters, knits, scarves and coats you almost forgot about. And because fall is the perfect season for layers, this time around I'll be layering all my long sweaters (previously worn with leggings or jeans) over flowy dresses and skirts. I thinks that's quite a nice update for them. Mix and match them any way you want, the possibilities are endless.

There are pieces in my wardrobe that I always return to, year after year and I cannot get enough of them. This dress is one of them. What I love best about it is that it can be worn back to front as well. I am sure it wasn't designed with this is mind, but it's how I wear it most of the time. I love an open back way more than cleavage (which I rarely show). Now imagine that this is actually a dirndl dress, which is something you would see at Oktoberfest, worn with a puffy white shirt underneath. Very season appropriate, right? I found it in a thrift shop a few years back and it came with a matching cropped jacket - how cute is that?

This cape makes me feel like a superhero every time I put it on. A fashion superhero that can travel through time. It's brilliant. I don't get to wear it too often, but when I do, it's a special occasion on its own, no matter where I am going or what I am doing. OK, let's take a deep breath in and admire it once more before we move on to the next matter at hand. Are you ready? Can we all swoon over the awesomeness that is my new hair color? My hairstylist has outdone himself this time, creating this beautiful salmon orange ombré effect. It's everything I wanted for fall.

Burgundy is definitely my go to color for fall and printed tights have become my trademark. When dealing with such a powerful print as houndstooth, it's best to keep the rest relatively simple. Though very tempting, it's important not to cram all your favorite pieces at once in a single outfit. I might have gone a little bit over the top with the sparkly sweater, but it's quite subtle unless you are in direct sunlight/ spotlight. I've been wearing lots and lots of black lately and I really love how the burgundy breaks the black here and gives the ensemble a joyful vibe.

This weekend I attended Fashion bloggers in Maramures, an event that gathered 16 bloggers from around the country in the beautiful city of Baia Mare. We arrived on Friday, checked in at the splendid Romanita Hotel and caught up with the girls over lunch. In the evening we went together to the Gold Plaza Shopping Mall, where the event was hosted. We got the chance to present our blogs, interact with the audience and collaborators and get to know each other a little better. Diner was served at the Lumiere restaurant. The next day we drove over to our next destination and were accommodated at the Carpatia Express Hotel. Staying in a train hotel was quite a unique experience and we enjoyed every minute of it. The most anticipated experience was the Mocanita - steam train ride. I took advantage of the beautiful surroundings and settings on location and shot this beautiful cape from www.iiana.ro. I am absolutely in love with it!
