Dressing up for the cold is no easy task, and on the days you’re planning to shoot some pictures, walk quite a lot through what’s left of the melting snow, and feel good without having to worry too much about clothes, and shoes, and make-up, it appears even harder.
No matter how hard life gets, how troubled some days are, how many thoughts cross our minds every second, there are certain moments when everything seems to be in the right place. I’m talking about those moments when you stop thinking about all that’s not right in your life and instead focus on all the good, like the warm temperatures of a wonderful October day, the chance to walk along some quiet streets that are so beautifully made-up by the falling leaves, and the immense peacefulness that comes along with all of that.
I believe in simplicity above anything else, and that’s something not likely to change in the foreseeable future. During my busiest & most overwhelming times, it’s in simplicity where I find my balance. I just love the feeling of ease and the sense of freedom an oversized shirt and a pair of jeans give you, particularly when you’re on the run. Like we were yesterday, caught in between running errands, shopping at the farmer’s market for fresh fruits, shooting some pictures for the blog, all right before the storm was about to hit.
I’m not going to lie, I initially planned to spend my Sunday in bed, wearing my pajamas all day long, my hair in a messy bun, with a tea in my hand and Puss very close by. But the thought of a good cup of coffee at my husband’s invitation managed to lure me out of the house. And I didn’t mind the dreary weather, not one bit.
Those of you following me on Facebook, were already introduced to the lovely interview (it’s in Romanian) I gave to Daniela from Fashion.Shopping.Gossip last week. In that spirit and because I want you to get to know me a little bit better, today I am going to share another 5 things you might not know about me .
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 ♥
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus
It kind of felt this exact way the other day, while I was stepping on a carpet of golden leaves holding a bouquet of violas in my hand and enjoying the warm rays of autumn sun. Nothing more beautiful if you ask me. Now, I don’t know if there is such a thing as a blogger’s block, but I felt like I needed to step aside for a while in order to contemplate the road I took so far, which explains the decreasing number of posts during the last couple of months. I have to know where I stand, before trying to reach my next destination. It’s a period defined by me trying to make decisions, while struggling to find the perfect balance in my life. And honestly I’m not good at making decisions as I always find myself trapped someplace in the middle, between all the cons and the pros, not ever ready to make up my mind. All that I can say for sure is that I thoroughly enjoy this little world and I am forever grateful for all the wonderful persons I have met (
virtually speaking) thanks to this blog. Love ♥
Needless to point out that the beautiful weather we experienced over the week-end lured us out of the house in no time, as the sun and the clear skies begged for a little escapade. We chose to visit an abandoned church that is located somewhere outside the city and the day couldn’t have turned out better. I fell in love with the ruins, with the beautiful landscape, with the history. Without mentioning the fact that walking in shorts, without the weight of a jacket on my shoulders and with no heels felt like a total blessing.
I guess it was also high time to switch the focus back on orange, one of my all-time favorite colors that made its way into my closet yet again! Hope you enjoy the pictures, thank you so much for all of your lovely comments, they mean the world and here’s to a great start of the week! Happy Monday! ♥
