Thrifted shirt, shoes, bag & pin + Red Luck Vintage dress + Pull and Bear jacket
Beware! My first Berlin outfit post is here! Such posts have been a little scarce lately, but I won’t bore you with the excuses. I told you about my new biker jacket and I was excited to show it off. I think it makes a perfect pair with my turtleneck dress, not just in style but also in warmth. The combination reminds me of my high school days, but I made it slightly more feminine (and 2015ish) by layering a pink shirt in between.
This lovely street is close to where I live now. It’s such a good area to bike through, with all the yellow leaves falling over you like rain, and all the picturesque sights they create. Bike paths are covered with leaves, parked cars are covered, too, and staying inside sounds like less and less of a good idea. I can’t wait to see more of the neighborhood and the city in the following months!
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.
Second-hand shirt + Style Stalker skirt + Hema socks + Bianco shoes
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.
Thrifted pajama top + handmade skirt + Happiness Boutique necklace (c/o) + COS shoes
Every piece in this outfit has a story to it. None of the stories is related to ironing, as you can probably tell. The shirt is actually a pajama top I found in a second-hand shop. But with beautiful cat print and Japanese kanji, it was hard to resist. And while I haven’t worn it outside the house before, no one asked me if I’m wearing pajamas, so I’ll take that as a victory.
The skirt is made by my friend G., who also made me this skirt. She says it’s no big deal, but I really admire her determination and skill when it comes to sewing. I know my own sewing machine has been gathering dust for months!
As for the necklace, it’s actually a set of three delicate necklaces from Happiness Boutique. They sell all sorts of beautiful jewelry, but this necklace caught my eye and stole my heart. The three look great together, but can also be worn individually, which I simply adore. The hexagon one has already been included in a couple of (offline) outfits, and I imagine it will quickly become my favorite.
Finally, the shoes are a lucky outlet find from last year. Because you can’t say no to COS shoes in your size when they appear out of the blue.
This is one of the few outfits I put together only for the sake of the blog and that don’t actually get to be worn out on the street. A fabulous wedding, maybe, but not the street. This dress is not one that you can wear lightly. It transports you and it makes you want to twirl and dance. If you think about it, it’s just sequins. But combined with the maxi length and tulle, the dress screams mermaid-princess! With that in mind, I wanted to photograph it somewhere by the water, which is how I came across this lake. It’s normally used for fishing, so why not fish out an outfit post? I felt it didn’t need any more accessories, so I let it shine on its own.
P.S. The dress is already out of stock, but you can find plenty of shiny, pretty dresses on Persun Mall!
Biantika dress + Babis Art sandals + museum gift shop pin
You know how when you’re in a long-term relationship you start cultivating the same interests as the person you’re with? Yeah, that, annoying. I like to think of myself as an independent woman with particular passions of my own, but I also find it impossible not to get into the same things as my guy is. So, while I’ve never been interested in architecture more than the next Pinterest-obsessed person, I find myself visiting houses by Le Corbusier twice in two weeks. I find myself buying a pin of his famous Modulor from the Maison La Roche, which is where these snaps were taken. It looks pretty generic from these pictures, but the interior is rather stunning. And here’s the other house we visited last week, a beauty in its own right.
As for my outfit, it’s a classic case of dressing for comfort and against the heat. With over 30ºC on a daily basis, it’s hard to walk around in anything but a casual, wrinkle-free dress, and flats. And this is what I’ve been wearing, mes chères, and this is what I’ll keep wearing. No one knows me here, shhh!
