A whiter shade of pale

Skinny Buddha ruffle long sleeve white dress

2 years ago, I got married at city hall wearing a custom made purple dress with an open back. If I were to do it all over again and let's suppose I were partial to white wedding dresses (which I am not), I would definitely wear this one. I did not pick it up with a wedding in mind, but it does have that certain vibe. Nevertheless, it's a gorgeous dress that can be worn on multiple occasions. I already wore it to work with this black belt and a pair of chunky heel ankle boots. I might have looked a little bit over dressed but I never had an issue with that. During the weekend I dressed it up with this pair of high heel purple boots and a matching bag for date night. And I am already thinking about the next time I'll be wearing it, dressed down a little bit, with a pair of brown flat ankle boots and a couple of layers of long silver necklaces. Who knows, maybe sometime in the future I'll go for a Gothic Lolita styling if I feel like it. The possibilities are endless.

Heaven upside down

Skinny Buddha lace midi skirt

I've been back in the office for a couple of weeks now and my wardrobe needed a little bit of sprucing up. I didn't do much shopping while I was on maternity leave, apart from the items I got through my collaborations, and therefore realized that my office wardrobe was a bit outdated. And because I always try to think outside the box and go for unexpected pieces, I decided that I needed a black midi lace skirt in my life. It's definitely not the first item you might thing of when talking about office attire, but since I am not working in a very restrictive environment, this seemed like the kind of bold choice I could make and get away with. Paired it with a cozy mustard colored sweater, platform boots and a double buckle belt, to add a bit of edge. The other bold recent acquisition is this gorgeous red bag from Musette. I was actually looking to buy the black version but ended up falling for the red one and I have no regrets. No worries if you think this combo is too out there for a day at the office, you can always try for a fancy dinner or out with your friends.

Couleur Caramel Illuminateur

Couleur Caramel Illuminateur

Asa cum va spuneam acum cateva saptamani, cea mai recenta descoperire a mea in materie de produse de ingrijire si machiaj este gama de produse BIO Couleur Caramel. Compania s-a nascut in anul 2003 in Franta, iar in 2006 a obtinut prima certificare Ecocert (ECO & BIO) Cosmebio. Din 2013 sunt parteneri oficiali ai festivalului de film de la Cannes, iar produsele se exporta acum in peste 30 de tari din intreaga lume. In Romania le puteti achizitiona AICI: www.naturalparis.ro
Eu am inceput sa folosesc produsele lor in timpul vacantei in  Muntenegru si m-am indragostit iremediabil de iluminatorul lor, editie limitata din colectia de  primavara-vara. Inca il mai gasiti pe site AICI. Arata grozav pe pielea putin bronzata, dar il folosesc si acum si sunt la fel de incantata. Datorita compozitiei sale pe baza de ulei vegetal de caise si unt de shea bio, se aplica extrem de usor si se topeste in mod natural pe piele. Efectul este cu adevarat wow!

I'm a rebel just for kicks

Skinny Buddha Mustard Cable Knit Cardigan

Fall is here and it's time to bring out the big guns. And by big guns I mean the big chunky knits that have been laying dormant in our closets. They are my favorite thing to wear once the temperatures drop and they are great for transitioning those summer pieces you haven't had enough of, into fall. The easiest option is to just throw them over a summer dress, put on a pair of boots and you're ready to go. But of course, they can be layered over basically everything. I went for a very casual and relaxed look here, with my favorite new mustard cable knit cardigan layered over a summer white top and boyfriend jeans. It's the perfect ensemble to wear during my evening strolls with my baby girl.

Angel Wings Black Cami Dress

Yeah yeah, I know! Summer's already gone and there's probably no good reason for me to wear this dress right now. But have you seen the back? I know, right!? Isn't this the most precious thing ever? OK, enough with the questions. Long story short, saw this dress, fell in love and never looked back since I ordered it. Now I am just waiting for a fancy event to take it out and twirl like a madwoman.

Couleur Caramel - BB Crème

Couleur Caramel - BB Creme

Dragele mele, sunt super incantata sa va vorbesc astazi despre noua mea descoperire. Dupa cum stiti m-am intors de curand din vacanta, dar ceea ce poate nu stiti este ca am avut alaturi de mine niste aliati de nadejde. Este vorba despre produsele de machiaj BIO marca Couleur Caramel, pionierii machiajului BIO si natural in Franta. Eu le-am descoperit de curand, la recomandarea unei prietene care locuieste in Franta, si vestea buna este ca le puteti achizitiona si din Romania de pe site-ul www.naturalparis.ro.

Produsul pe care mi l-am dorit cel mai mult a fost un BB Creme, in primul rand pentru ca tenul meu se confrunta cu ceva probleme dupa sarcina, dar si pentru ca aveam nevoie de un produs natural, lejer si care sa nu imi incarce tenul in vacanta. L-am folosit cu incredere pentru sedintele foto sau seara cand ieseam la cina. Este potrivit pentru toate tipurile de ten, are o textura fina si cremoasa si contine acid hialuronic natural si ulei de argan bio. 

In general am incredere mult mai mare in recomandarile facute de prieteni decat in reclame, dar cu cat m-am documentat mai mult despre Couleur Caramel cu atat mai mult m-am convins ca este vorba despre o marca responsabila care respecta mediul inconjurator, investeste mult in calitate si inovatie si nu realizeaza teste pe animale. Am fost foarte incantata sa aflu ca pana si ambalajele sunt reciclabile, biodegradabile si sunt printate cu cerneala vegetala. Dar despre asta vorbim mai pe larg intr-o postare viitoare, caci mai am cateva produse pe care vreau neaparat sa vi le prezint.

How bow that

Take A Bow Cami Dress in Dusty Blue

My birthday month is coming to an end, and so is summer. It's been a fantastic season and I am sure sad to let it go. My one regret is that I didn't find this summer dress earlier, I would have worn it to pieces. But it's not too late, fall might go easy on us and maybe I can still pull it off with a cardigan on top. Isn't it pretty? It's got that retro feel to it and I have to admit the bow in the front sealed the deal for me. It has pockets, and you know that's always a plus in my book. I would have rocked it during our vacation, if only it had arrived before we left. Anyway, wearing it in the city doesn't make it any less spectacular. Wore it to the pool with my trusted straw boater hat and these brand new sandals I got for my birthday.

The Rock

Skinny Buddha Montenegro vacation black fringe dress

During our vacation in Montenegro we would pass through this rock tunnel every day on our way to Budva or to the beach and we would marvel at its beauty. You might have already seen it on my Instagram account. So one day I decided to stop and take some pictures here and luckily we had the place to ourselves. There weren't that many cars passing by and no tourists stopped on the side of the road, except for a couple of cars that pulled over as we were wrapping up. I knew this dress was the perfect thing to wear on that specific day because it has all this drama and movement. It's a showstopper for sure. The double fringe on the side and the plunging back and neckline, not to mention the side boob situation,  are spectacular. I've had it for a couple of years now and although I love it, I haven't worn it that much. It's a bit more revealing than what I am normally used to, but on vacation it's another story. Anything goes!

Montenegro

Skinny Buddha Montenegro vacation

Hey guys, I am going to keep this super short and quick. Here is the first outfit post from our vacation in Montenegro. It was super fun but, alas, it was over a bit too soon. These pictures were taken during our trip to Budva, more specifically the Old Town. We had a wonderful view of the city and the sea as well from the old citadel. I'm wearing a pretty basic outfit but with some fun accessories. I recently thrifted this black top and I was super excited to wear it. Kept it simple with a pair denim shorts. The leopard print sandals are a new entry as well, you can shop them here. I was really surprised to discover that they go with nearly everything and therefore wore them almost every day during our stay in Montenegro. They're super comfy, chic and edgy.
