I could be your flamingo

Skinny Buddha Flamingo top skirt

Pink is definitely not my favorite color, you can tell because I rarely wear it, but I do love it in nature. Flamingos are by far my favorite birds and I remember I was mesmerized when I first saw them during a vacation in Sardinia a few years ago. Therefore, I decided to celebrate these majestic birds and create another vacation inspired look. So there you go, a flamingo overdose. The t-shirt is quite old and I've already worn it in so many combinations, but never in an elegant outfit. The skirt was love at first sight, and I have to admit it was so hard so refrain from buying it in all colors. You can check out a great selection here. If you think this is too much you can always go for a plain white t-shirt, drop the heart shaped sunglasses and let the skirt be the center of attention. I normally would have worn a pair of high heels with this, to get that long legs effect and actually resemble a flamingo, but I have to admit I don't wear high heels that often anymore. These flats are soooo comfortable I never want to take them off. I like the subtle pink shade and the minimalist design, because it makes them super versatile.

Kissing the tortoise shell

Skinny Buddha Meli Melo tortoise shell sunglasses

I've been fascinated with tortoise shell sunglasses for as long as I can remember. The name is part of it, but my fascination became even greater when I started to see them styled by pin-up girls. Those famous "kissing the tortoise shell" lyrics from Echo and the Bunnymen come to mind as well, even though they were not talking about glasses at all. There's something so chic and timeless about them, and I am so glad I finally found a pair that looks good on me. I don't normally go for black and brown combos, but this time the sunglasses seemed the perfect addition to this gorgeous black and white striped dress. I especially love the classic front slit mixed with the cut off shoulders, which give it a modern vibe. I am obsessed with stripes, as you might have already noticed, but I am always looking for new prints with a twist. This is the third post in a row featuring striped outfits, and I hate to disappoint you but another one is coming up pretty soon. What can I say, the heart wants what it wants.

It's always better on holiday

Skinny Buddha White Cold-shoulder Top with Tiered Sleeves

I feel like I should be writing this post in French, but the truth is my French is a bit rusty so I will spare you. I was in a very playful mood when I put together this outfit, and because we haven't made any plans for vacation this summer, all I do is daydream about it. So for today I imagined we were somewhere in Provence (such a cliché, I know), sitting in a charming little cafe in a small village, having lunch and enjoying the subtle lavender smell. I've got my fancy straw boater hat on, dark sunnies and the most gorgeous white off the shoulder top with tiers and tiers of ruffles on the sleeves, and a chic little striped skirt. I am wearing flats for a change, one because we are on vacation (duh!) and two because they are super comfortable on these cobbled streets. OK, time to wake up and get back to reality, Miha! I am actually only a 5 minute drive away from my apartment, but in this setting I do feel like I am somewhere far away even if just for one second. Do you have any suggestions for this summer vacation?

Baby, life's what you make it

Skinny Buddha ruffle crop top multi colored striped midi skirt

Summer is here! It's time for flaunting what you've got, for crop tops and bright bold colors. I can never resist a striped pattern, especially when it comes in such pretty colors. My stomach is not yet summer ready, looks like that darn baby fat is here to stay, so I am not exactly prepared to flaunt those abs. But I do have a trick up my sleeve. Crop tops are super fun to wear during the hot season, but if you only want to show a tiny little bit of skin, a high waisted midi skirt is the perfect match. I picked this beauty from Woman Fashion and it is even more gorgeous than I expected. You know I am crazy about skirts that have pockets, so double points for this one! My theory is you can never wear too many stripes so I hopped into my cute little striped sandals and I was ready to go. Now the only thing missing is a change of scenery. I need a vacay, pronto!

Daydream, I fell asleep beneath the flowers

Skinny Buddha Off Shoulder Denim Dress

For today's post I partnered up with Standfor, a footwear company with a great cause. Their shoes represent action and people who walk for a reason, therefore each collection makes a powerful statement. I picked up their Illusion ankle boot from their second collection called Quit Phubbing and styled it in a very relaxed summer-ish outfit . You might not be familiar with this concept but I can assure you that to some degree we are all doing this, and in fact some of you might be doing this right now without knowing there is a name for it.
Phubbing = Phone + Snubbing and it happens when we ignore the people around us because of technology. I am guilty of it myself, I have to admit. I don't go out as much as I used to before having the baby, but when I meet with my friends, although I am eager to talk to them and socialize I tend to grab the phone to check my social media accounts, emails or start taking photos every couple of minutes. I do it without even thinking, or maybe I am deluding myself that I can multitask but in fact I am just spacing out. We are addicted to our technology and tend to alienate ourselves from real conversations and human contact. So let's put our phones down for a minute and really engage, before we lose our social capabilities for good.
The design of the shoes is quite revolutionary. The gap between the shoe and the outer sole enhances ventilation and allows you to walk more lightly and with greater comfort. The strip divides the shoe in two parts and thus provides more flexibility and durability. I chose the orange strip for this model. They are made of premium microfiber and therefore no animals have been harmed in the making of this footwear.
And because we need to improve the way we share the statements that we stand for, I have a gift for you! You can use the gift card code 0GC0LAW3 to get 30 Euros off your next purchase. The gift card is available until the 30th of June 2017.

I'll wait for you there like a stone

Skinny Buddha buttoned embroidered white blouse

I had a totally different title planned out for this post but this song has been playing on repeat for the past few days and I can't get it out of my head. So sad we lost yet another amazing artist. This song takes me back to my college years when I was living in a dorm and I remember when this album came out it was blasting from our speakers so loud you could hear it from the street. 
On a totally different note, my head has been in the clouds lately, I'm feeling kinda tired and in much need of a vacation. I must have been really spaced out when I placed my order on Zaful, because I ordered a bodysuit one size too big and I thought this was a dress when in fact it's a button down shirt. I had a whole outfit planned in my head and when the package arrived I realized how short this was. I'm not supermodel tall, but I am not petite either (I'm 1,72m) and this is an issue I have to face most of the time when I am shopping online. Some stuff is too short for me and in this case the sleeves are short for me as well. Well, I don't really mind because I like them better rolled up. This would have looked kind of rigid and too covered up with a long sleeve. You know me, I love a black and white combo, so I immediately thought of pairing this shirt with a pair of black skinny jeans and strap high heeled sandals. Threw in a bold orange bag to animate the entire ensemble and I have to say I am more than happy with the result.

Red, red, red

Skinny Buddha red cold-shoulder dress

I can't believe it's warm enough for bare legs and shoulders even in the evening! Hurray! Well, now I actually realize that my legs are super white, cause who has tanned legs in May, right? Not that I get tanned really, I actually love my pale complexion and don't spend too much time in the sun during the summer either. The thing is, I found this supper cute red dress with these beautiful ruffles and bare shoulders and I wouldn't have imagined I would get to wear it so soon. It's the perfect summer dress, super chic and easy to style. I figured I could wear it to an open air party, to the beach or even out while running errands. It can easily be dressed up or down and I cannot wait to see how it looks with sneakers and a cute little backpack.  I used to love wearing red when I was a blonde, but I am beginning to appreciate this color even more with my natural hair color. It's a great contrast. So for this look I decided to go all in. I put on the brightest shade of red lipstick, red and gold sandals and red earrings. I don't have a red bag but this is where I draw the line, it would have been too much red anyway.

Game, Set, Match la Padel Center Dumbravita

Padel Center Dumbravita

Weekendul trecut am petrecut o dimineata super antrenanta alaturi de bloggerii din Timisoara intr-un cadru inedit. De data aceasta nu a fost vorba despre un eveniment fashion, ci de ziua bloggerilor la Padel Center Dumbravita. Am lasat tocurile, gentile si trusa de machiaj acasa si ne-am echipat cat mai sportiv. Derivat din tenis, padel-ul este un sport relativ nou la noi in tara, de care sincer nici nu auzisem inainte de acest eveniment. Ma bucur mult insa ca am acceptat invitatia, pentru ca mi-am inceput ziua intr-un mod foarte agreabil, ne-am distrat impreuna, am facut miscare, si chiar daca adversarii ne-au batut mar in meciul oficial, eu si Laura am facut super echipa si ne-am simtit tare bine. Terenul e mult mai mic decat la tenis, deci nu trebuie sa alergi atat de mult dupa minge, mai ales daca esti incepator ca mine. Bine, am mai jucat eu tenis in spatele blocului, in copilarie, dar asta nu se pune ca a trecut o vesnicie de atunci. De asemenea, terenul e imprejmuit cu sticla, ceea ce e foarte util atunci cand te crezi Simona Halep si dai cate o serva afara din teren, iar rachetele sunt mai mici si extrem de usoare. Padel-ul ne-a pus cu siguranta in miscare toti muschii corpului, chiar si cei pe care nu stiam ca ii avem. Sta marturie usoara febra musculara de a doua zi! 
Daca v-am facut curiosi, Padel Center va asteapta in Dumbravita, Str. Praga nr 6, iar mai multe detalii gasiti pe pagina de Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/PadelCenter.ro/
