2013 In Review

I am going to keep this last post of 2013 as short as possible because I ‘m already running late and because I know everyone is busy getting ready for the biggest celebration of the year ^_^. Looking back I realize 2013 was one of the most beautiful and fulfilling years of my life. I married my best friend and my better half, I was blessed to consolidate a job that I absolutely adore, I spent the most wonderful moments surrounded by friends and family, I visited new places, pushed my limits, read more and learned new things. The blog allowed me to find myself in ways I never though I could. And I grew a lot, I experimented with fashion and stepped out of my comfort zone, I fell in love with white shoes and red lipstick, I had my first collaborations with wonderful brands and I am now one step closer to defining my personal style. To all of you who read Oteea Land throughout the year, who supported me and decided to accompany me in this special journey, I want to say a huge thank you. May you have a dreamy 2014 and keep believing that anything is possible! Happy New Year!

2013 In Review 01

Casual O’Clock

EN: I’m not much of a over-dresser, but during the Holidays I did enjoy putting aside the more casual clothing I  own, in order to put on something a little more elegant, more festive. But the thing is you only tend to feel like the best version of yourself just as long as you get to wear what you really, really love. Needless to say, I was happy to ditch the dresses for a pair of jeans, a beautiful sweatshirt (which I adore) and a pair of heels the other day. With the right accessories, a pretty lipstick and the memory of a wonderful Christmas imprinted on my glittery nails, I felt like I stumbled upon the perfect outfit for these in-between celebratory days. Wish you all a happy Sunday and I’ll see you soon with the last post of the 2013, when I will take a look back at some of my favorite outfits of the year. Thank you for reading, much love ♥

RO: Probabil va este deja cunoscut faptul ca nu sunt innebunita dupa tinutele complicate si super-accesorizate, dar in perioada Sarbatorilor m-am bucurat sa pun deoparte piesele casual in favoarea unor tinute mai elegante, usor festive. E adevarat insa ca tindem sa ne simtim cel mai in largul nostru si sa emanam incredere doar atunci cand purtam ceea ce iubim cu adevarat. Nu cred ca mai e nevoie sa spun ca am fost bucuroasa sa uit de rochite si sa ma intorc la o tinuta compusa din blugi, o bluza simpla dar pe care o ador si tocuri pentru o dupa-amiaza perfecta, petrecuta in doi. Cu accesoriile potrivite, un ruj dragut si amintirea unui Craciun minunat imprimata pe unghiile mele stralucitoare, am simtit ca am dat peste outfitu-ul perfect pentru aceste momente de relaxare intre Sarbatori. Va doresc o duminica frumoasa si ne revedem in curand cu ultima postare pe 2013, in care voi face o mica recapitulare a tinutelor mele preferate din acest an ♥

Casual O'Clock 01

Gonna Let It Burn

EN:I guess the countdown is almost over with the Holidays nearly here ^_^ I feel super tired at the end of a long week, but it’s the Christmas spirit to continuously refill my batteries. I can’t help but to feel excited with the entire house beautifully decorated, enjoying going over the menu, buying last minute gifts and thinking about the upcoming days (and desserts!!!). My parents will be visiting and this is all the more reason to unplug and take a well deserved break from everything. Switching to the outfit, I really enjoyed wearing it for a day filled with last minute errands to run, burgundy is still one of my favorite colors and I believe it looks quite perfect on the cozy scarf I got in the package along with the items you’ve already seen in this post. Wishing you a beautiful rest of the weekend and I’ll be seeing you soon ♥

RO: Numaratoarea inversa se apropie de final, iar Sarbatorile sunt gata sa ne invaluie cu atmosfera lor incomparabila. Ma simt foarte obosita la finalul unei saptamani pline, dar spiritul Craciunului continua sa imi incarce bateriile in mod constant. Nu pot sa nu fiu entuziasmata cand vad casa decorata atat de frumos, cand abia astept sa punem cap la cap meniul, sa cumparam ultimele cadouri, cand ma gandesc la urmatoarele zile si la deserturi!!! Parintii mei ne vor vizita anul acesta asa ca am si mai multe motive sa ma desprind de tot si sa iau o binemeritata pauza. In ceea ce priveste tinuta mea, mi-a facut mare placere sa o port intr-o zi incarcata, burgundy-ul e inca una din culorile mele preferate si cred ca arata perfect pe fularul calduros pe care l-am primit de la, impreuna cu restul de articole pe care le-ati vazut deja in acest post. Va urez un final de saptamana minunat, atat cat a mai ramas din el si promit sa ne revedem curand ♥

Walking On Clouds

EN: There’s little I love more than the classic shades of black, white and gray for winter. But I believe there’s such beauty, delicacy and serenity hiding in pastel hues, particularly in powder blue, that they’re somehow meant to sweeten what can easily become a dull winter wardrobe. Until I will be able to find that perfect pastel coat I’m dreaming of, I keep on indulging in cozy sweaters and oversized scarfs. And to add more of my favorite colour to this outfit, the Persunmall bag I received the other week felt like the perfect final touch.The bag (that you can find here) easily became one of my favorite accessories at the moment. It truly is perfect in size, color and shape, so if you thought about getting it, you really won’t regret it. Wishing you all a great start of the week, there’s only 8 days left until Christmas ♥ Much love ♥

RO: Sunt putine nuante de culori pe care le iubesc mai mult decat pe clasicile tonuri de negru, alb si gri atunci cand vine vorba de garderoba de iarna. Dar cred ca exista atata frumusete, delicatete si liniste ascunsa in nuantele de pastel, in special in albastru, incat ele par menite sa indulceasca o garderoba care altfel, poate deveni cu usurinta monotona. Pana cand voi gasi paltonul albastru perfect, cel la care visez de multa vreme, nu-mi ramane decat sa ma rasfat cu pulovere comfortabile si esarfe supradimensioante. Si ca sa adaug si mai mult din culoarea mea preferata acestei tinute, gentuta pe care am primit-o de la Persunmall zilele trecute mi s-a parut detaliul perfect. Geanta (pe care o puteti gasi aici) a devenit rapid unul din accessoriile mele preferate. E perfecta ca marime, culoare si forma, asa ca daca v-ati gandit deja sa o achizitionati, nu veti regreta. Va doresc un inceput de saptamana minunat, au mai ramas doar 8 zile pana la Craciun ♥

I Always Go Back To December

EN: Something lights up inside me every December, once the first snow falls and I begin decorating the house for Christmas. It’s times like this when I miss childhood the most. I remember my dad waking me up at night, every year, just to catch a glimpse of the first snow, I remember the rooms echoing carols as me and my mum were turning out the house, I remember the excitement we felt when my dad came home with the Christmas tree, and the times me and my brother used to strip it out of candy way before it was time. These memories shape my nostalgia and my happiness this December, making me forget all about the cold outside. The cold that I am ready to brave with my new over-the-knee boots and the coziest sweaters and scarfs. Hope everyone is having a beautiful week, counting down the days ’till Christmas. Much love ♥

RO: In fiecare Decembrie simt cum in sufletul meu se aprind mii de luminite, odata cu prima ninsoare si cu momentele in care incep sa pregatesc casuta pentru Craciun. E perioada in care mi-e cel mai dor de coplilarie. Imi amintesc cum tatal meu obisnuia sa ma trezeasca in miez de noapte doar ca sa ma bucur de primii fulgi de zapada, imi amintesc cum casa rasuna de colinde in timp ce eu si mama ne ocupam de curatenia generala, imi amintesc bucuria pe care o simteam in momentul in care tata aducea bradul acasa si toti anii in care eu si fratele meu obisnuiam sa furam bomboanele din el, lasand in urma doar ambalajele frumos colorate. Aceste amintiri si o dulce nostalgie imi contureaza fericirea in aceasta luna, facandu-ma sa uit complet de frigul de afara. Frig pe care sunt gata sa il infrunt cu noile mele cizme si cele mai calduroase bluze si fulare. Sper ca toata lumea se bucura de o saptamana frumoasa, numarand zilele pana la Craciun ♥

I Always Go Back To December 01


EN: So far, my online shopping experiences have been both great and a little disappointing, but that never stopped me from totally indulging in this fun activity from time to time. Last week, I believe I opened up a new chapter, as I joined the wonderful family. After hours spent going through all of their products, trying to decide what to get (and that wasn’t easy), I ended up picking a black Tally Weijl blazer and a pair of black Tally Weijl slightly cropped jeans. Needless to say they go wonderfully together, they feel absolutely great and they are a perfect fit to my ever-growing wardrobe. I didn’t plan on going all black, but as it happened, I didn’t mind one bit. Discover the complete look after the break. Thank you for reading ♥

RO: Experientele mele de shopping online din trecut au fost atat minunate, cat si complet dezamagitoare. Dar asta nu m-a impiedicat sa continui sa ma rasfat, luand shop-urile preferate cu asalt din cand in cand. Saptamana trecuta am deschis un nou capitol de shopping online in momentul in care m-am alaturat familiei Dupa ore intregi petrecute rasfoind printre miile de produse disponibile, incercand sa decid ce sa aleg (pentru ca nu a fost deloc usor), m-am oprit asupra unui sacou negru Tally Weijl si asupra unei perechi de jeansi negri cu croi conic, tot de la Tally Weijl.Nu are rost sa mai mentionez ca arata minunat impreuna, ca se potrivesc stilului meu si ca abia astept sa le port in alte combinatii pe perioada iernii. Nu a fost intentia mea sa aleg o tinuta in intregime neagra, dar lipsa culorilor nu m-a deranjat nici macar un pic. Puteti descoperi intreaga tinuta mai jos. Va multumesc si va doresc o saptamana minunata ♥
