Army Brats…

Taking this photoshoot to the woods and dressing accordingly. This post will be like some of those ‘Sunday posts’ where there will be barely any text as we are on the road to the greatest festival of the summer – UNTOLD, so not much time for texting as a full day on the road awaits us, but I didn’t want to stop posting.In other words, if you want a live update on what’s happening at UNTOLD, you should check our Facebook page as well as out Instagram accounts (L and D).

Back to this short fashion post. This is exactly the type of dress that will carry me through a good chunk of autumn despite the fact that it is a summer piece. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it online anymore, but I did get it from Mango and I linked an alternative. Why it’s ok to wear it in autumn as well? Well first of all the colour, just imagine it paired with oxblood tights and wellington boots or high-heeled booties. Then there’s the fabric which is kinda thick but also kinda flow-y. And lastly, you can just ignore that fact that it doesn’t provide any arm heat as you can either wear it over a blouse or layer a cardigan. I will definitely shoot it during this autumn as well just to prove a point. Another great thing about it is the fact that it has got room, I honestly think that it can carry my up until the seventh month of the pregnancy.

On me:

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

Looks like┬álately I’ve been obsessed with wedges, because let’s be honest, whenever we feel like we gained a few kgs, no matter the reason, we immediately want to look taller and wedges are the the perfect compromise between height and comfort. These wedges are also from Mango, and come to think about it, my entire outfit is from Mango as the bag is also Mango. Well, you can’t beat a great discount and great quality!

On D:

T-shirt – Mango; Shorts – Scotch and Soda; Shoes – VAS; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot

D also wanted to get lost in the scenery and went for a kaki green outfit. Despite the fact that he didn’t wear a full Mango outfit, he did wear a Mango t-shirt. Apparently we are Mango addicts! His shorts are one of my favourites and they are from Scotch and Soda and I think that he should buy more shorts from them as opposed from H&M. For comfort reasons and because it was hot as hell when we took these photos, he wore his VAS flip-flops, decision which he immediately regretted as a forest environment and flip-flops do not go well together.

Accessories-wise, I opted for a gold Swarovski bracelet while D opted for his latest Constantin Nautics obsession bracelet. I also wore a multitude of rings including my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings and we both wore out Tissot watches.

Although this was supposed to be a short, barely-any-text post, apparently I can’t stop rambling and this turned out to be a rather decent sized post. I will try and keep it short the next time I will be writing on the road. Do not forget to follow our UNTOLD experience while also reading out posts!

Favourite so far…

I think I have found my favourite dress/ caftan in the whole world. First of all, with all this getting fat around all the places that I’ve been busting my ass to avoid, I feel like there’s not much that works well with my newly acquired curves. This caftan is different though, it just hides everything that needs hiding and only shows the best you’ve got. Although I’ve always wanted a caftan, for some reason I never got around to actually buying one until this summer in Milan. But I will not stop at this one, NO!

I will make it my goal to find as many beautiful caftans as possible this summer. Well, especially this summer, as I really need them to make me look my best given the new fattening circumstances…As for the colour theme of this photoshoot, the full blue look occurred by chance and has nothing to do with what our baby will be. I just needed to get that out of the way in order ton proceed to the actual fashion post at hand.

On me:

Dress – Luisa Spagnoli; Sandals – Love Moschino (alternative); Bag – Mihaela Glavan; Bling – Swarovski, Tomorrowland and Pandora; Sunglasses – Dior; Watch – Tissot

Have I ever told you how much I love the blue, turquoise and yellow combo? Well, let me just insist on the fact that in my opinion there is no other combo that screams long summer days more than this one. Like, seriously, there’s nothing better! And, not to brag, but this caftan has all these amazing summer colours combined to perfection, AND (drumroll), D was the one that actually found it at Luisa Spagnoli while we were in Milan. I have to admit that I was very surprised of his find because this is one of my mother favourite shops and we were actually in it trying to find something for her. Obviously, this does not mean that I do not have more stuff from Luisa Spagnoli, it just means that I am surprised that D found the perfect caftan for me there in less than 2 mins.

On D:

Shorts – H&M; T-shirt – Polo Ralph Lauren; Shoes – Polo Ralph Lauren; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Sunglasses – Ray-Ban; Watch – Tissot

I was totally inspired and decided to wear it on yet another hot, hot, day in Bucharest and I paired it with my yellow Love Moschino bow sandals that I’ve had for ages and that I couldn’t find anywhere online. The reason I chose yellow sandals is the fact that this outfit needed just a bit more yellow in it to prove my colour point. I also chose my Mihaela Glavan gold clutch bag and the huge turquoise Swarovski cocktail ring alongside my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings. I kept my hair neat with a simple low pony as I always do whenever a big print is involved. Obviously, my Dior sunglasses couldn’t miss this sunny day.

D also opted for a turquoise and blue combo, but he skipped the yellow, well at least he tried, but he still had a hint of sunny coloured yellow on his Polo Ralph Lauren sneakers. His polo of choice for the day is also from Polo Ralph Lauren and his shorts are, quite obviously H&M. Maybe I should start making him shop at different stores for a change. He couldn’t be bothered with much accessorising so he only wore a Constantin Nautics bracelet and his aviator Ray-Bans. We both kept kept in line with our Tissot obsession and wore our T-race watches.

This, is so far, my favourite pregnancy look and I am going to try and find some more similar clothes for this summer and maybe stretch it until early autumn. I will keep you photo updated on my quest for the perfect caftans!
