Second-hand shirt + H&M shorts + We Love Colors tights + Wagoneer boots
Greenhouses are a blogger’s best friend. This one is located in a small Romanian town and it looks spectacular even from the outside. There are two big domes, as well as some additional glass buildings, packed with cacti and tropical plants. After leaving our apartment last week, we spent our time all over the place, and one of the roads led us to this botanical garden (for the locals, this is in Jibou, Salaj). Exciting times coming up, since we’re driving to Berlin this weekend!
Background info aside, I’m still wearing what I now realize is my social media shirt. What can I do if it goes so perfectly with everything? That includes these cute cat print shorts I’ve recently received from a friend. Aren’t they adorable? It’s a little late in the year for bare legs, but they’re rather lovely with tights, I think.
Making a good photo shoot with children must be really difficult. I imagine they have a very limited attention span and it should be pretty hard to capture everyone in a fashionable smize, especially when there’s more than one child model involved. Yet, it can be done, as shown in this wonderful lookbook from children’s brand No Added Sugar. These tweens seem to have style figured out, with their pretty dresses I wouldn’t mind owning, their elegant jackets and the best tights ever. The shot with the headscarves is my favorite, and I can picture it in a grown-up photo shoot just as well.
This turtleneck was a revelation for me. I bought it second-hand last winter, and I’ve worn it continuously every season since. When it was super cold outside, I wore it as a skin-tight layer under shirts and whatever else was bulking up at the time. Then it became my number one choice for spring and summer evenings, when I conveniently pulled it over dresses or skirts on every occasion. It doesn’t need much space in my bag or suitcase, it’s light, yet warm. Paired with black jeans, it feels like cat suit. Needless to say, I don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon.

Just when I thought autumn was here and I was starting to put my sandals and sundresses away, it’s summer again. Yesterday afternoon we went to a mobile market, bought some fruits and veggies and homemade goodies, and took them on a picnic on a hill. It was really lovely since no one else was out there on a weekday afternoon. Oh, the perks of being a freelancer! This forest was just nearby, and it looked ethereal in the softly filtered light. So that’s where we took pictures. And P.S: this is my favorite shirt now and I don’t even care that it seems like I haven’t worn anything else in ages. It’s a small size from the men’s section, and it’s perfection.
The changes in weather got me a bit worried lately. So worried, that I had to look for some nice rain outfits. And not the type you usually find recommended in magazines – but actually wearable choices for real rain. You already know the three main pieces: umbrella, rain coat and rain boots. The only issue remains how to make them look cute and stylish rather than frumpy. Here are my finds:
A pair of tall, fitted boots won't let any of that nasty rain around your toes while the birdcage umbrella will keep your head and shoulders dry. Learn More
Your outfit shouldn't be a secret. Show it off through a sheer plastic raincoat. Learn More
If humidity tends to turn your hair into a mess, prevent the disaster with a sleek, wet hairstyle like Vika Gazinskaya here. Learn More
A rain cape reminiscent of Red Riding Hood will create a nice contrast with virtually any outfit. Learn More
Nothing like a bright yellow coat to improve your mood on a rainy day! Extra points for the chunky loafers. Learn More
A rubber raincoat goes well over anything and it keeps you dry throughout the day. Learn More
It looks like a regular trench, but it's actually a stylish raincoat! It shows off as well as improves an outfit, if you ask me. Learn More
The utilitarian part? Those sturdy boots and plain black umbrella. The chic part? Everything. Learn More
For light rainy days, you can opt for bare legs and high (non-slippery) heels. A cute, neon raincoat is a must though. Learn More
Not just for festivals, rain boots can be the perfect pop of color in a neutral everyday outfit. Learn More
