Channeling our inner royalties!

Finally in Disneyland!!! While both of us have been to Paris several times, once together, but we haven’t reached Disneyland together until this time around. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be with D in Disneyland. I loved Disneyland ever since I first came here 10 years ago, this is the place that makes every trip to Paris totally worth it! This and the shopping! I just couldn’t believe it, we were finally here, together! While I will give you more details about the wonderful park and how we felt there, tomorrow, today is all about what we both decided to wear to meet our childhood (and adulthood) idols! I don’t know about you, but for me, Minnie is #goals so my age makes no difference nowadays.


Obviously, we tried to take most of our photos in one place, and we chose the Haunted Mansion for it because, even though I would’ve loved to take pics in front of the (my) castle, that would’ve been way to cliche! The Haunted Mansion seemed like a right fit, especially since we didn’t have our royalty robes on. We did however manage to match and I really do not know why we chose teal for Disneyland, especially since there is online proof that we can both sport various shades of pink. Looking at the photos, teal does tend to look nice and it contrasts my blonde hair quite powerfully.



On me:

Dress – ZARA; Shoes – Vidoretta; Bag – Obag; Sunglasses – Dior; Bling – Pandora (bracelets and ring) and Tomorrowland; Watch – Longines

As unexpected as this is, all the dresses I wore in Paris are old ones and it’s quite possible that, for all of the fashion posts, I am going to have to search for alternatives. And I’m telling you, finding an alternative for this one was very hard and the dress I found doesn’t come close to this one, but it will have to do. I chose to wear my Vidoretta espadrilles, and good thing I did that, as there was a lot of walking involved that day and these espadrilles are made for these types of days. Naturally, my outfit was finished off by my Obag basket bag that seems to go everywhere with me these days. There are two reasons for that: I am too lazy to actually change bags and this bag is very versatile, and you know how I love all things versatile!



On D:

T-shirt – Lacoste; Shorts – H&M; Shoes – Converse; Bag – Barcelona; Bling – Fossil and Constantin Nautics; Watch – Longines

As promised, I am nowhere close to taking off my Dior sunglasses, and make no mistake, Disneyland was not the place to take your glasses off! Just ask Minnie!!! I did keep it simple in the jewellery department and only wore my two Pandora bracelets and a ring, and naturally my Tomorrowland ring as well. As stated in the other fashion post, we both decided to wear our Longines watches for this trip.

D being the nice and loving husband that he is, just like Mickey (told you I forgot to grow up!), also went for the teal colour scheme. Or at least he tried to because apparently he doesn’t own a piece of teal anything in his closet, so we had to make do with what we could find! Obviously, this time around, he couldn’t leave home without a pair of H&M blue shorts, and to be honest, I was very happy that he has this habit of buying various colours of the same thing. He paired the shorts with a khaki polo from Lacoste and his always present bag from Barcelona! Jewellery wise, he kept it just as simple as me and went for his Fossil and Constantin Nautics bracelets.



Obviously, tomorrow is going to be all about the 1000 photos we took while at the park and it’s probably going to contain very little text, because if the photos can’t convince you to visit this amazing place than it means that you are way too adult-y for me!




Mustard Everywhere!

Naturally, we couldn’t not have a photoshoot right in from of the Dome, I mean, we are tourists after all, and we were lucky enough to stumble upon the said area in a moment where there weren’t as many tourists as usual. To keep the earthy, natural, semi hippie mood of the vacation, we both chose mustard as a colour theme for our third day in Milan. We did, however mix it with browns and ended up with a pretty nice combo, if I might add.


Since asking for ketchup is a total insult anywhere in Italy, while packing, I thought I’d stay clear of any red items that I might have, therefore ending up with a mustard theme. True, this isn’t exactly a hippie outfit, but it is way more casual than anything I usually wear, especially since, yes, this is my second pair of culotte pants and this time, because we were on vacation, I avoided the high heel combo. Partly, I do regret that, looking at the photos, as everything that I managed to avoid when I wore the raspberry culottes last time (short and bulky me), I couldn’t avoid this time thanks to my catalan sandals. But the reality of the matter is, that this look, though not the best one I’ve sported lately, was one of the most comfortable worn in Milan. The advantages of being matched with D to the letter is that people tended to focus not on me on the street but on both of us, which kinda made me feel that they were’t seeing how short I was.



On me:

Pants – MANGO, Top – MANGO, Shoes – Avarca (similar to mine); Bag – from Barcelona (something similar from Mango here); Bling – Pandora, Tomorrowland, Swarovski and Constantin Nautics; Shades – Gucci; Watch – Daniel Wellington



On D:

Shorts – H&M; T-shirt – Lacoste; Shoes – MANGO; Bling – Fossil and Constantin Nautics; Watch – Daniel Wellington

Yes, this is yet again a full Mango look, except for the shoes and bag. It’s not my fault that I can’t really pace myself during their 70% sale, and that I always leave the store with loads of stuff – point at hand, a full vacation worth of clothes. Unfortunately, these culottes were not on sale, but who can resists this lovely shade of mustard, especially as they do tick the other musts for culottes in my book: high waist and knee length. I do confess that I have ironed them before packing but apparently I am not as good at ironing as I’d like to think, this being the reason why only very few items that need ironing are allowed into my wardrobe. The flowy top is also from Mango and this one ticks a lot of trends right now – ruffles and off-the-shoulders, and it was very, very cheap, so this was one of those irresistible buys. Getting home with all of my spoils from Mango, I realised that both the pants and the blouse perfectly match my catalan sandals and my cross-body bag that I got from Barcelona, so this immediately turned into a look for Milan. I just added a Constantin Nautics bracelet and my Tomorrowland, Pandora and Swarovski rings and I was all set!

Naturally, D had to oblige and go for a mustard theme as well. Luckily, when packing, we both spotted his Lacoste polo that is the exact shade as my pants, and from there on it was easy, We just added a pair of H&M beige shorts and the only thing left was to find the right pair of shoes. Though we did leave Bucharest with a pair of spare brown shoes, these mustard espadrilles just found us in Milan at Mango. Apparently, we both have a thing for Mango right now. All he had to do was add his Fossil and Constantin Nautics bracelet, and we both had to find matching nato straps for our Daniel Wellington watches and we were in a full mustard colour scheme, ready to take on Milan for a full day of shopping. And boy did we shop like crazy people in Milan!



Speedy Lemonade!

This is going to be one of those ‘barely-any-text’ posts, as today is mad, mad,mad! You’re going to find out soon enough why, if you haven’t already from our Instagram accounts and our Facebook page. Bottom line is that there’s no better way to cool down than to wear fresh colours like yellow and blue.



The dress I’m wearing is yet another dress designed by the one and only Anca Maxim and, as with any of her designs, this one can take numerous shapes. It has an elastic band underneath that allows you to give it this intricate form. That can be adjusted in any way you (I) wish. I paired it with these lovely yellow Sophia Webster sandals that I got a few years ago and my gold Mihaela Glavan clutch bag. Accessory wise I opted for a Swarovski ring and bracelet to compliment my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings.




On me:

Dress – Atelier Anca Maxim; Shoes – Sophia Webster; Bag – Mihaela Glavan; Bling – Swarovski (ring and bracelet), Pandora and Tomorrowland; Watch –Tissot



On D:

Shorts – H&M; T-shirt – Lacoste; Shoes – Ralph Lauren; Bling – Fossil; Watch – Tissot

D also kept it in the same colour palette, choosing to pair his yellow H&M shorts (yes, another pair!) with his dark blue Lacoste t-shirt. Yup, we discovered he has two identical Lacoste t-shirts in his closet. That never happened to me, so the balance for the most thoughtful spender leans into my direction. He wore his Polo Ralph Lauren sneaks that perfectly match both the shorts and the t-shirt and only chose his Fossil bracelet as an accessory. We both wore our Tissot PR100 watches just to keep things to a minimum.

All in all, we are preparing a bunch of posts from abroad with impressions, places to eat and fashion, so please excuse today’s short post!




Oranges and Blues!

Right, so what do you do when you have a ‘thing’ where you can’t wear a bathing suit even though the weather desperately requires that? I told you that until the weather becomes a bit more normal temp-wise I’m going to continue to whine about it. Back to the question… I’ll tell you what, you’ll just watch how the man of your dreams melts away in long pants and a polo shirt while you enjoy life in an easy-breezy dress and sandals. Sometimes it’s just so good to be a woman!


Seriously, during summer I do tend to pity men because if you actually have to go to an event where you are not allowed to wear shorts and open shoes, then it just sucks to be a man! I mean, these types of regulations tent to be a lot more permissive with us women. For example these outfits over here. It’s quite easy to see which one of us is more comfortable at 36 degrees… On the other hand, us women bleed for 5 days every month and still live to tell the story, so with that in mind, pitying men just stopped!




On me:

Dress – Atelier Anca Maxim; Shoes – Jimmy Choo; Bag – Furla; Bling – Tomorrowland, Pandora and Swarovski (bracelet and ring); Watch – Tissot

Back to our outfits… The obvious colour palette consists (as the title says) orange and blue. I know this is not really a traditional colour combo, but for some reason I seem to came back to it quite often. The only thing that suffers changes, depending on the season and event, is the intensity of both of the colours involved. Just thought about the fact that i have a perfect orange summer bag from Lancel tucked somewhere in our dressing room that just needs a good photoshoot. I just need to find it! Soon!



On D:

Pants – ZARA; T-shirt – Lacoste; Shoes – Tommy Hilfiger; Bling – Fossil; Watch – Tissot

For this cocktail-casual event I chose a very comfortable dress designed by the one woman that actually made my wedding dress as well – Anca Maxim. What I love most about this dress is its versatility. Apparently I’m a big fan of versatility! For these photos I’ve worn the right sleeve up, but I do promise that we’ll shoot it again and I’m going to wear the sleeve down which totally changes the dress. The reason I chose to wear it up was, obviously, the heat! The print on this dress is very easy to combine as well, working well with oranges, blues and yellows. This time I went for my neon orange Jimmy Choo Lance sandals – told you they are an absolute staple and I have them in two colours. Also, to complete the look and carry my phone and house keys, I chose the orange Furla bucket mini bag. As for the bling, naturally, besides my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings I wore a Swarovski cocktail ring and bracelet.

D had to suffer a bit as there was absolutely no way he could get away with wearing shorts this time, so he had to wear his orange ZARA chinos. Obviously, because he wore long pants, flip-flops, be them leather, weren’t an option so he had to wear his Tommy Hilfiger boat shoes. To completely match my dress, he chose his dark blue Lacoste polo t-shirt. He obviously wore his Fossil bracelet and, for a change we both wore our Tissot PR100 which is a very classic watch.


There you have it! I survived gracefully in the heat while D roasted like a turkey the entire afternoon. Well, sometimes you have to suffer for fashion!





Forest Sprites…

I love everything frilly and airy this summer. Part of the reason being the fact that summer suddenly struck Romania like a thunderbolt. After April and May which were filled with 18 degrees maximum temps, yesterday, my Mini showed 40 degrees and today, as I am writing this, the atmosphere is unbreathable. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the amazing person that invented the AC!!!This is probably the reason why the area we are living in is going to be especially crowded today. Living near the forest, on the outskirts of Bucharest has its advantages, but then summer weekends come and it all goes to hell! It seems like everyone just moves in this area and the small 4 degrees advantage we had over the centre of the city just goes to waste, and we all suffer the same.


Back on topic. We are not really forest-people, meaning that I would much rather spend my day in a nice SPA than doing long walks in the wood, but the other day, I just couldn’t handle the heat anymore and told D that I needed to go to a shadowy place to cool off. Naturally, the moment we arrived at this forest road, we suddenly remembered why neither of us likes these types of activities: insects! I mean, you probably realised by now that I love shoes – bear with me, I have a point. You know, if you are anything like me, the strong attraction you feel towards a pair of Loubs, with their high, high pointy heel and their beautifully shaped toe, it’s that kind of attraction that is simply unbearable and it’s best for my bank account to not look either online or in the stores too often. Well, that exact type of attraction is, I suppose, what mosquitos feel when they see me! Or D, for that matter, as he is just as loved by mosquitos as shoes are loved by me!



On me:

Dress – Dana Budeanu; Shoes – Barcelona; Bag – Love Moschino; Bling – Pandora, Tomorrowland, Constantin Nautics and Swarovski; Watch – Daniel Wellington

That being said, we still ventured in the forest the other day, and yes, we had a good time snapping these pictures here! True, we left nature with a few bug bites, but overall we didn’t die! Yet! I’ll keep you posted on that situation! The point I wanted to make was MUSTARD! I mean, MUSTARD coloured anything! I just love this shade of yellow, way better that any other type of sunny yellow. For some weird reason, I think this shade is way more versatile than any other yellowish variety. I especially love it combined with beige or brown, or even grey. Basically, this shade works with any neutral colour in the universe! 

Obviously, last year when I saw Dana Budeanu‘s collection and eyed this specific dress, I just couldn’t help myself! It was somewhat the same feeling I get with shoes (SOMEWHAT!). Naturally, I couldn’t help myself and filled the cart with a few other pieces as well which you are going to see throughout this summer. You can still find some alternative pieces in the current collection, and by the looks of it, most of the stuff is in this beautiful shade as well (watch out Mastercard!). The cut of this dress is well in trend this year as well, with the loose feel, the bare shoulders and the all around frill. Mostly this dress is perfect for the seaside, but whenever I want to go out into nature and feel like a sprite, I usually go for this kind of cut.



On D:

Shorts – H&M; T-shirt – Lacoste; Shoes – VAS; Bling – Fossil and Constantin Nautics (bracelet1 and bracelet2); Watch – Daniel Wellington

I coupled the dress with my catalan sandals that I got from my first visit to Barcelona, over 10 years ago. These sandals are usually my go to during the summer, especially when I have a lot of walking to do because they are extremely comfortable once you make peace with them. Unlike any other flat shoes, these are killers in the beginning, until the leather matches the shape of your foot. I am so glad I had enough patience with them ( I usually don’t do that) as for the past 8 or 9 summers (yes, it took them an entire summer to understand that I am not the one to give up on them!) they have been with me everywhere. The fact that they kept their like-new appearance is amazing and I do kinda regret not buying another pair the last time we were in Barcelona. I also wore my Love Moschino beige bag that you can’t find online currently, but there are loads of other options. Accessory wise I kept it to a minimum with my Swarovski ring set and my Constantin Nautics bracelet. As for the hair, a real sprite can’t be a sprite with loose hair so I went for the tube up-do (as I call it).

D also played along and chose to pair his mustard Lacoste polo with beige H&M shorts. Yes, that is yet another pair of the same shorts you’ve been seeing recently on this blog. I made a promise to myself to actually go and count how many colours he has them in. Not that I am complaining, because my man is very trendy and he can match my style everyday. In keeping with the matching bit, he, like me wore Spanish shoes. True, his are newer and not from Barcelona, but Madrid counts and these leather flip-flops are beige just like mine. Bling wise, he, yet again, paid more attention to details and wore two Constantin Nautics bracelets and his Fossil bracelet. We changed the straps to our Daniel Wellington watches and pwoffff! they perfectly match both of our outfits!


All in all, we did enjoy the fact that there were 3 degrees less in the forest, but the scratching championship that occurred after our nature visit made us totally rethink our options! I mean, we do have air conditioning and we really don’t need any new scars on our legs. Basically, the conclusion was that we are not nature-oriented people and that is ok, nature is definitely for others, we respect nature, but we just shouldn’t spend too much time in it!



we found an evenly matched bridge!

This weekend we decided to run away…to the seaside, since we both had that on our minds since Thursday! Most of what I’m wearing is new, so this time, when you click on a link you’ll find those exact pieces… I really love this yellow-dark blue combo and hope with all my heart that the Fashion-fairy considers this colour scheme a winner for this summer!

I will stop the rambling right now, cos this isn’t supposed to be a text-posting, and just let you enjoy our photos taken by D.
