Wearing a Dress in the British Summer


red zara hm essentials

I might as well give up shaving my legs once and for all. All the effort, all the drama, and no appropriate weather to show them off. I mean, why? Why England, why? And on top of this, you go shopping and there’s floral dresses everywhere. They’re all made of delicate fabrics that won’t keep you warm at all. They must think we all spend our weekends in Spain or something. The struggle is real, especially for someone like me who prefers to wear dresses all the time.

I know there’s this big trend right now to wear a dress on top of your jeans. But short and not so skinny girls like me cannot pull that off, unless you want to look more unflattering. So instead, I prefer to go back to my old habits: chunky knit on top. And if you match the colours like I did, it looks like one single clothing item.

And if you are one of those lucky girls who lives in a warm country, well.. I’m not jealous of you because you must be broke right now considering how pretty the new ss17 dresses are.

Happy in Pink this Spring

EN   I don’t know about you, but when it’s sunny outside I am a completely different person. My energy levels are already much higher and I am ready to take on the world. We’ve had so much clear blue sky lately that I felt inspired, more productive and more relaxed. And my wardrobe is starting to change too – it’s that exciting time of the year when I get to wear more colour and show some skin. So I had to make my entrance in a pink outfit. I forgot how much I love this colour, it used to be 80% of my closet. I don’t wear it that much nowadays, but it still remains my favourite colour. What’s your favourite colour? Don’t forget to embrace it this spring!

RO   Diminetile insorite au un impact foarte mare asupra mea. Ma simt automat mai energica, dornica sa fiu mai productiva si mult mai relaxata in acelasi timp. In ultima vreme ne-am bucurat de dimineti insorite si a fost deosebit. Si incetisor starea mea de bine se transfera si la tinutele de zi cu zi – ma atrag iar culorile vii si hainele vaporoase. Mi-e tare dor de vremea buna si plimbarile in oras fara geaca pe mine, cam ceva in genul tinutei de azi, care n-ar putea fi mai roz. Si-mi aduce aminte de garderoba mea de acum cativa ani: cred ca 80% era roz. Mi-am adus aminte cat de mult imi placea culoarea asta…si cred ca a ramas culoarea mea preferata si acum. Si ma bucur ca vine vara incetisor, abia astept sa-ncep sa port mai multa culoare.

My ‘go to’ autumn look

urban outfitters dress autumn leaves

EN   Today is all about the simplest way to look put together this autumn, but be comfortable at the same time. I found this knitted dress at UrbanOutfitters and it’s extremely comfortable. For autumn, I like to wear loose dresses, soft enough to be able to layer them on top. The shape of the dress is flattering for anyone, it gives you room to breath and it’s not too short. And you’ll probably wear it with a pair of tights so it’s already better. But what makes the dress more special for me, is the fact that it’s backless and has a turtle neck at the same time. It’s quite a contrast, don’t you think?

RO   Astazi va arat tinuta mea cea mai purtata in zilele de toamna. Ideea e ca prefer de mii de ori sa port o rochie cu colanti – e mult mai comod si e usor de accesorizat. Rochia de azi e de la Urban Outfitters si m-a atras instant la ea faptul ca are guler ridicat si spatele gol in acelasi timp – mi se pare o combinatie mai greu de gasit. De asemenea, o rochie in stilul asta e perfecta pentru orice forma a corpului: vine usor mulata pe langa talie iar apoi mai larguta. Si lungimea vine la fix – poate fi putin cam scurta daca esti mai inalta, insa toamna oricum purtam colanti asa ca eu zic ca putem alege rochii sau fuste mai scurte decat de obicei.

An off-topic topic

cat_effectedEN    There are just those days when you don’t want to wear too much make-up, you don’t want to wear a fancy dress, you just want to be comfortable. For me, this was just one of those days: simple jeans and a simple top. Dan and I wanted to enjoy the lovely weather and spent all day outside, drinking coffee in the park and walking around, a lot. I guess this is what I miss most from home, the nature. The beautiful nature and the awesome weather. But now the autumn is here and I’m still searching for the perfect pastel pink coat. Dear perfect coat, where are yooou? When I saw the catwalk trend, I was like: Oh, I always wanted a coat like this! Now the shop will be full of them, so I’ll find something. However, not so many on the high street. Maybe, not yet. I’m still hoping to find one, soon. What about you, ladies? Did you find anything pastel, cozy and warm?

——————–

RO  In postarea de azi va arat o tinuta extrem de simpla: jeansi si un top (si-un cardigan sa tina de cald). Deseori simt nevoia sa fiu comoda si da, am impresia ca nimic din dulap nu-mi sta bine. Si-atunci aleg ceva mai simplu si comod. Si stiu ce va ganditi: Andra, nu ti-e frig?! -Ba cum sa nu! Doar ca pozele-s de weekendul trecut cand inca era sfarsit de vara. Acum sunt in cautare de palton roz pal. Mereu mi-am dorit unul pe culaorea asta. Si pe rosu. Si unul pe maro. Si pe negru. Aveam un palton negru candva (cand eram tanara si nelinistita) si mi l-au furat! Va vine sa credeti? Asa frumos era.. 

Nu stiu voua, dar mie mi-e foarte greu sa-mi gasesc o geaca sau un palton. Trebuie sa fie special/a, sa iasa in evidenta, dar nici prea mult, ca sa mearga la mai multe tinute. Trebuie sa fie calduros, dar nici prea pufos sa ma faca cu 10 kg mai mare. Si-apoi, mai tre’ sa fie si ieftin. Daca stiti unde as putea sa-mi gasesc ceva frumos, lasati-mi un comentariu! comfortable look

Casual Friday

Simple outfitLately, I feel I don’t know what to wear anymore..this sunny weather makes me take those spring clothes out of the closet, but it’s too cold, really really cold.. that’s why today I chose to wear something simple and comfy. I know you’ve seen these boots for a while, but they’re so warm, I don’t want to let them go!

 

In ultima vreme nu mai stiu cu ce sa ma imbrac.. Soarele de-afara imi creeaza o stare de primavara si vreau sa port rochite..si balerini..si tricouase cu danteluta… si ..si… si culori! Dar e prea frig afara (si ma cam enerveaza). Asa ca azi m-am imbracat simplu de tot, confortabil. Si stiu ca poate v-ati saturat sa ma vedeti in cizmele astea (mai ales la final de Martie) dar sunt calduroase si-mi plac de numa’! Casual OutfitIn order to bring some colour to my outfit, I took this red bag.

Ca sa nu fiu prea monotona, am combinat tinuta cu o geanta rosie.
