The Next Best Thing

Following my intense Pinterest crush that I’ve managed to somehow cool down lately, comes my newest addiction – the old, but always new Instagram. Although I have set myself an account/profile a while back, it was only recently that I began my share of easy fun on the Insta-land. Feel free to join me on my newest time consuming activity – username Oteea (of course) …

The Next Best Thing

Comme Une Evidence

Perfumes have fascinated me ever since I was a little girl (no surprise there); I love the stories that hide behind the aromas, I love the delicate hint of mystery they leave behind, but most of all, I love the memories that each scent triggers; the feeling I get whenever that spark happens is … indescribable, almost magical.

Vannesa Hudgens – Bohemian Inspired Look

I’m still not sure how I feel about Vanessa Hudgens’s take on fashion, but what I do know, is that almost everytime I come across to an image showcasing her casual, off-duty style, I feel the need to save it, for later inspiration.

Take Me To The Ocean

I can’t seem to recall the exact time or day, the intense heat started off this year (it sure feels it’s been a forever ago), but ever since, I dream about day(s) spent at the ocean, somewhere far, far away.

Imagine yourself captivated by a good book, whilst the sun shines on a perfect blue sky. Imagine dipping your toes in the cold water for the first time; walking on the beach, late in the evening, when the beautiful sun sets; laying on the warm sand at night, while listening to the ocean whisper old stories. Then imagine the fresh breeze, that unique moment when you feel like everything falls into place

My soundtrack for today – Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds album, that perfectly suits my summer mood, my dreams, my plans. Enjoy the sun !

Elegance Netherlands - May 2012

Under The Tuscan Sun

Feminine, fluid, effortless, simple (with that little special extra something – a ribbon, a button, a print, a color) – that’s the kind of fashion that defines me. Nothing over the top, nothing crazy, nothing futuristic !

Oteea's-Picks---Resort-2013

While dreaming, browsing and searching for inspiration in the Resort Collections for 2013, I have found a few that caught my eye for more than two seconds and one I would have bought entirely (with monopoly money of course) had I lived in a perfect sunny happy world !!! I’m talking exclusively about the BCBG Max Azria Resort 2013 collection. Colorful, soft, perfect either for a summer vacation (in Italy ) or for summertime spent in the city !

The Trick Is To Keep Breathing

Today, is just one of those days … still undecided if it’s going to be good or bad. One of those days, when a bit is too much, and too much is not enough. Feels like a fresh new start.

What makes you smile today? Me – the clear blue sky, the thought of a good movie tonight, the flowers I bought yesterday, the coffee awaiting in the kitchen, a good, happy song played loud and these …

Let’s Just Breathe

Oh wow, I haven’t even realized that almost two weeks passed by since my last post. I guess the trip back home, the preparations and all the time spent there, really helped me disconnect, unplug my “wires” and just … be. I cannot say I didn’t miss the blog, the internet, the fashion industry, but I chose to put it all on hold and just focus on the time spent with my dear ones. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The weather played some tricks, it wasn’t all sunny and warm like I had hoped, but instead I learned to enjoy the cloudy and even rainy days, which surprisingly wasn’t that bad. I miss the sun though, and I really hope he’ll be back soon enough.

So between going for walks, trying to enjoy coffees (wish I could say they were delicious, but my hometown seems to miss a good coffee spot), shopping, eating, playing with the cat, sleeping, catching up with my mom and celebrating her birthday, I couldn’t care less about a fashionable outfit. There will be plenty of time for that.

Now I have to catch up with everything, including the International Theater Festival which is currently taking place in Sibiu, I really hope I’ll get to see at least one play.

Hope you’re all doing great ! I’ll see you soon, XO
