Boy/Girl???

Right, so we do not know what the little bundle of joy will be, yet! Well, at least not for sure, and we do not want to announce anything until we know 100%, so we decided we will be really careful what we will wear in order for people to not get the wrong hints/idea. so, here we are, again dressed in pink and blue, and, honestly, I’ve really come to love this combo so much! I know that last spring I wasn’t too keen on pairing these to star-colours together, but I think we’ve done it three or four times by now, and I really like the result a lot.

This is probably the last time that I will wear this dress as, obviously, pregnancy belly and frills around the waist do not really work great together, but I’m glad I got to wear this dress though as I got it while in Milan from Mango and it would’ve been a pity for it to not see the light of day this year. Also from Milan are these gorgeous Valentino Rockstud in petrol light blue that work wonderful with this pink dress. You know me, I love my stilettos, and I hope that I will be able to wear them until I give birth! And these are some of the most comfortable, if not the most comfortable ones I own. It’s decided! I will wear them when the moment to go to the hospital will come!

On me:

Dress – Mango; Shoes – Valentino; Bag – Furla; Bling – Swarovski, Tomorrowland and Pandora; Watch – Tissot

Also joining the pastel party, my lilac Furla Metropolis bag that I feel that I have ignored lately despite the fact that I love, love, love it so much! To finish everything, I wore my Swarovski pastel cocktail ring besides my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings. Ok, maybe it’s time to tell you a bit about the always present Pandora and Tomorrowland rings. They are both from D for various important occasions that we celebrated this year and I love them to the point where they are the second most-word jewellery I own aside from my engagement and wedding rings.

On D:

Polo – Calvin Klein; Shorts – H&M; Shoes – Pull and Bear; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot

D also wanted to keep you guessing about our baby and wore his pink shorts from H&M and his blue polo from Calvin Klein, to match my message. I am not really a fan of his ancient Pull and Bear espadrilles, but I have to admit that they do work nicely with this outfit, colour-wise. Bling wise, he just chose to wear a simple Constantin Nautics bracelet, while both of us wore our Tissot T-race watches.

Do not worry, we will let everyone know what our baby will be when we will be 100% sure by probably having a themed photoshoot!.

Not switching to maternity…yet!

Well, back in burning Bucharest… I kinda like the seaside more during the hot summer months, but from time to time we have to get back to reality. The truth is, the only clothes I find bearable these days are flow-y summer dresses which is just perfect as I have to say, anything skin-tight makes me feel like a sausage. My belly is not yet at the point where it actually looks like a pregnant belly, no, on the contrary actually, right now it resembles more a belly stuffed with two large pizzas and three beers, so not really a pretty sight.

Taking this into consideration, my go-to clothes right now – thank God it’s summer – are summer dresses. As a matter of fact, I don’t really have any other option. Most of my clothes are tailored for my by-now-forgotten small waist. That’s actually the only style that really appeals to me but it requires a toned tummy. Besides the summer dresses that cover the pizza belly, another great thing about summer are the sales. For example, both me and D are wearing clothes that don’t go over 20 E together excluding accessories, shoes and bags.

On me:

Dress – H&M; Shoes – Calvin Klein; Bag – Obag; Shades – Dior; Bling – Tomorrowland, Pandora, Swarovski and Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot

thing that attracted me to this 7E H&M dress was the print and the fact that it was very appropriate for hot summer days. I think that this dress might fit me perfectly when I’ll be 9 months pregnant, so even if you have a more advanced pregnancy, go ahead and buy it as it will last you throughout the entire period and it’s not even maternity. Apparently this is my M.O. where shopping is concerned these days. I haven’t yet changed sizes where clothes are concerned, so I can still invest in pieces that will last me way beyond my due date. Though, this 7E dress can’t really be called an investment as log as it costs just as much as a McDonald’s large menu.

Moving along to the parts of the outfit that were a bit more expensive. I wore this pair of Calvin Klein platforms for the first time now, after I bought them last autumn. It would appear that the fact that my thighs have gotten fatter, I feel the need to always wear something that will give me a bit more height and proportion. This is one aspect of the pregnancy that will get an individual post –  getting to the point where you understand that you will put on weight, and that’s a good thing. To keep things on a blue theme I wore my Obag, and naturally, the never absent Dior sunglasses.

On D:

Shorts – Pull and Bear; T-shirt – Bershka; Shoes – Pull and Bear; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot

D kept the same colour palette, but a very different print, and I love that he was brave enough to pull off stripes on stripes, especially as he looks so good wearing them. His shorts are from Pull and Bear and were the astounding price of 9E while his T-shirt is from Bershka and was about 5E. The amazing thing about these two pieces is the fact that they work together so nicely, as if they were made to be worn together. He also opted for his ancient espadrilles from Pull and Bear that complimented the outfit nicely.

We both wore our Tissot T-Race watches and it would appear that we have no intention to switch to any of our other watches for now as we are a bit obsessed with them. Bling wise, we both wore a Constantin Nautics bracelet each, while I completed my look with my usual Tomorrowland and Pandora rings and another multi looking ring from Swarovski. D did not wear his Fossil bracelet this time, to my surprise, despite the fact that it would’ve looked great with the brown shade in his T-shirt and in my dress.

I have to say, that even though I am in my fourth month of pregnancy, I do not intend to switch to maternity clothes as long as I can find alternatives. I really hope that I will not have to until very late in my pregnancy.

The Mad Hatter!

All things British…weather included! Packing for London, I had no idea what to expect, it is March after all… But March in London tends to be just as bipolar as March in Bucharest, it would appear. Of course, after spending a year in London, I already knew that. After about a week of intense thinking at what I should pack (I did need something trendy and fun as I was planning on doing a few fashion posts over there), an hour before I actually started packing, it hit me: A HAT!! I mean, no, I don’t usually, if ever until now, wear a hat, but hey, a hat is British, right? To prove a point, I’ve actually had (H&M) the hat you can spot in the pics for two years now and it still had the tags on on Thursday when I started packing. That alone should be an indicator of how often I venture into the hat-world, but for some reason, I thought it was time to wear it and London seemed the right place. Seemed…

As you can see, it is an oxblood felt hat, so it’s totally appropriate for the London weather. Starting from the hat, I packed almost everything I had that matched the oxblood colour theme and was clean (lingerie included-I like to match everything). Since I had only come to the oxblood theme a few hours before departing, I only had a few things clean as oxblood is one of my fave colours for autumn/winter and I tend to wear it a lot.

I had to improvise since my favorite oxblood items were unavailable, and I think that this colour works nicely with navy blue, black and red, which in my opinion, are all British looking colours.

I wore this outfit on the second day in London, because when we got there, on Friday, it was hot and sunny and a felt hat just didn’t seem appropriate. Worry not, as London weather came to its senses on Saturday- drizzle, cold, windy and all the nice things British weather has to offer. So, on that morning, I decided I was finally going to wear my hat for the first time and for an entire day (when we’re on vacation, we leave our room in the morning and come back at night). Little did I know what wearing a hat implied…on a windy day! Basically what happened was that in the first few minutes I got out of the hotel I decided that:

  1. My head does not have the appropriate shape to wear a hat- I have no idea how those cool girls that always wear hats do that without actually losing their hat and without bumping into things (I had tunnel vision)
  2. It was windy! I really need some tips! Does wearing a hat on a windy day implies using sticky tape to prevent the loss of the hat?

That being said, I tried wearing my hat casually and relaxed for the photos, non-casually when it was raining (one hand on top of my head) and not at all all the other times. Basically, I’d say that I spent most of my Saturday carrying it in my hand.

Overall, I’d say that wearing a hat is, like all the other cool things, a complicated matter. D kept making fun of me, telling me that being fashionable requires sacrifice, and in retrospect, I think he was right. I definitely looked like a mad person between shots, hence today’s post name.

Getting back to the fashion part of this post, I’ve paired the now infamous hat with oxfords (because…London) that have a little oxblood detail on them. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and I got them from Bagatt, for next to nothing, last autumn. I have no idea where I got the navy dress from as I’ve had it for three or four years and I think it goes nicely with my latest FURLA addition (travel exclusive from British Airways-I got it on my way to London). Because we had autumnish weather that day, my Burberry scarf, a black leather jacket and an oxblood cardigan kept me warm, alongside my black Calvin Klein tights. I always feel comfortable wearing a dress and I love the feeling of wearing a dress and a leather jacket, and right now, looking at the pics D took of me, I’m starting to like the whole hat idea (maybe I’ll do that more often if someone decides to tell me the secret of actually keeping it on my head).

Overall, the day I first wore a hat was interesting. I am not going to emphasise on London in this post as there will be a full post on that later this week. Well, this concludes my hat experience and the first of a few posts to come on London (the city closest to my heart).
