Inspirational Monday: One-shoulder ruffles

Blouse / Bluza - Zara (similar 1, similar 2) || Pants / Pantaloni - old || Sandals / Sandale - Zara || Bag / Geanta - Local Store || Earrings / Cercei - Forever 21

Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles. You saw them, you own them and so do I, but somehow they never get old, right? Well, at least a new trend comes along. :)) However, if last summer it was all about the off the shoulder (ruffled) details, this season the one shoulder ones are definitely a must. Whether you choose a dress, a top, a body, this trend is ON and you have to make place for it in your wardrobe. :) And what better time to do that if not during the summer sales when you can upgrade your closet with up to 70% off? :) 
You guessed it right, I found my blouse at Zara (on sale) and I totally love it. Honestly, I bought it at the beginning of the sales period, so I don't know for sure if you can still find it in stores / online, but I did some research and I found two similar ones HERE and HERE. The best part is that they have FREE SHIPPING at the moment, no minimum required. 

If I am to wear long trousers during the hot summer days, I would probably choose the thin, baggy ones, Chino style. I remembered yesterday that I had these navy ones in my closet, which are probably about 6 years old, but I thought I should add some red accessories and give them a try. Therefore, this Monday's "inspiration" would be: dig veeery deep into your closet, you never know what treasures you may find. 😀  

Happy Monday!

Swimsuit / Costum de baie || Slides / Saboti || Bag / Geanta || Sunglasses / Ochelari de soare

Sundays are for relaxation and online shopping! 😀 I found some gorgeous new pieces which I wanted to share with you and this time I divided them in black & white and red. Why? I'm not quite sure, probably because I really like red (or red & white) pieces at the moment, whereas the black & white garments are such a classic. And to be completely honest, I began with the lovely black swimsuit when I made the first collage because I am completely obsessed with it. Have you seen how gorgeous it is?! And it is only 15$!
As in for the rest, you will have to check them yourselves. I left the direct links to each of the pieces under the collages. Let me know which are your favourite items :)

Have a lovely Sunday!
Love, A.

Yellow flowers 🌻

I could easily say that the "less is more rule" applies to me almost every time. I tried to make crazier combinations, to wear two or more different prints in one outfit, to wear several bright colors, but it just doesn't work. I'm that kind of person who would choose to wear one kind of print at a time, that person who likes "normal" looks, who most of the time would choose the classy or minimalistic outfits and the one who chooses to emphasize one thing at the time. On another matter, I also don't like to mix and match my PJs, nor my towels, nor my beddings, they all have to be used together - just like I bought them :))) Why am I telling you this? Because these are my little obsessions and sometimes no matter how hard you try you cannot change them. :))

But anyway, this time I chose yellow, another color which is very popular this summer. Well, actually I began with this super cute blouse with small yellow flowers which I found recently on sale and I decided to wear it with some yellow accessories (bag, sunglasses) to which I also added a pair of palazzo white pants and a pair of golden sandals. As you already know, straw hats are a must for me during summer so I just had to add one to this look as well. The outfit might seem quite simple for you and I can't say it's not, but it totally represents me and I find it perfect for a brunch / lunch date, or when you take a walk in the park or even at the office (if you leave the hat at home :)) ) on a hot summer day.

Which type of outfits do you prefer - the simple or the more rigged out ones? What are your little "obsessions"? :)

Have a lovely weekend!
Hugs, A.

Bubble Gum 🍬

 Well, what can I say?! It's Zara everything! 🙄

Happy Monday everyone!

I was thinking what to write about today and somehow I remembered that when I was in school I used to have a Word file where I was writing all my favourite quotes which I could find online. Yep, I used to keep them all in one place because I was afraid I won't find them ever again. Silly me, haha.

But anyway, since I like mixing things a little bit and making a change from time to time is always a good idea, I was looking on Pinterest today and I found some pretty cool quotes which might be just perfect for an inspirational Monday. Therefore I thought of listing some of them here and of course, I would love to hear your thoughts about them / about this kind of post and maybe you can tell me your favourite quote, if you have one :)

1. "When nothing is sure, everything is possible."
2. "What if I fall? Oh, but my darling what if you fly?"
3. "Take every chance you get in life because some things only happen ONCE."
4. "Travel makes you realize that no matter how much you know, there's always more to learn."
5. "Take time to do what makes your soul happy."
6. "Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself."
7. "The distance between your dreams and reality is called action."
8. "Make today so awesome yesterday gets jealous."
9. "Be a voice, not an echo."
10. "No one is you and that is your super power." 

So these are the ones I chose for today and I hope they will inspire you :) Speaking of change, you may also notice that I edited my photos a bit different this time and I tried to make them fit my pretty bubble gum pink dress that I chose to wear yesterday. You already know that pink is my happy color and I couldn't be happier that there is such a hype around all shades of pink this season. I can finally wear pink till I drop :)))) This dress is super simple, but the bright colour and the frilled sleeves do all the trick. I chose to wear it with some golden sandals and my colourful new minaudière and I think I got a pretty cheerful, summer appropriate look, right? :) How would you wear this dress?

Have a good, productive week!

5 items you shouldn't miss this summer ☀️

Blouse / Bluza - Zara || Trousers / Pantaloni - Zara || Bag / Geanta - Guess || Sandals / Sandale - Bershka || Hat / Palarie - C&A || Sunglasses / Ochelari de soare - Stradivarius

Hey hey, after giving some thought about what could I write today, I realised it's been a while since I told which pieces I find to be essential for a certain season. And since we find ourselves in the middle of summer and there is also the sales season, I thought that this could definitely be a good and helpful idea.
So let's get started: 

1. Crop tops. To be fair, I am one of those persons who used to say that they'll never wear crop tops because they are simply not for me, but you know, "never say never". And don't get me wrong, I don't intend wearing them with a pair of leggings :)) God, I had that image on my mind, ew. No no, I love wearing them with high-waisted pants, jeans and skirts and trust me, they can look pretty good when worn right. I also love their 90s vibe and, depending on the situation, they can even look better than a normal length blouse. Therefore, be brave and give them a try. 

2. Floral printed items. I don't want to refer here to certain piece, you can choose whatever you like. Whether it is a blouse, a dress, a skirt or a pair of trousers, it doesn't matter, they are all very suitable for this season. In fact, I remember wearing floral prints in summer at least for the past 5 years , therefore investing in such a piece is always a good idea.  

3. White trousers. I cannot imagine myself getting through summer without a pair of white pants or jeans. I find them to be super essential, almost a basic piece if you like. I like the fact that I can combine them with almost everything and therefore they are very easy to style and to be dressed up or down. If last year I bought a pair of white skinny jeans and a pair of palazzo trousers, this year I bought a pair of cropped jeans with frills (see HERE) and the pair I am wearing in today's photos. I found the last ones on SALE and I was super happy about it because they are just the perfect pair for me. I can't even tell you in how many ways I imagine myself wearing them. 

4. Shoes with jute soles. These are definitely this season's shoes and there is wide variety to choose from: espadrilles, sandals, slides, bluchers. As I told you before, they didn't convince me right from the beginning, but now I totally adore them. They are so comfy, they look great and they definitely overcame the high heels for the moment. The only inconvenient is that you cannot wear them when it rains because the soles will swell, trust me I tried. :))

5. Straw hats. Does this really need a description? I love wearing hats all year round but I could never wear a hat made out of wool during summer, no matter how cool it looks. Therefore, straw hats are a must for me and I even associate them with this season. They would never look better than with a summerish, colorful outfit and as a bonus, they also protect you from the sun. :)

So which are your 5 essentials for summer? Looking forward to hear your opinion!

Have a lovely weekend,
A.
