The Big Picture

Not the typical summer outfit, I know, but it was the best that I could've done considering how twisted and uncertain is the weather in the UK. I spent my last three weeks there and I found this unpredictability ten times more annoying than two years ago when I'd visited the country.  But, I also learned to appreciate more the time that I get for doing nothing but just relaxing, so I ended up loving the places that I got to see, with or without the rain.

Currently at home, I'm preparing myself for a longer trip that's about to come. And since I'm still trying to get out of the vacation mood, I'll just leave you with these few lines, hoping the pictures will be enjoyed. :)

Open Sides

I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss blogging or being socially active, but I've also enjoyed every moment of my time off. I wanted to do nothing but focus on myself this holiday and so far it's been working out better than I had expected. Oh, but the discomfort that I felt while taking these pictures due to the lack of 'practice' has reminded me that there's a very thin line between resting and laziness...

Considering that it's past mid-July I figured that a summer-friendly look would be the appropriate choice for this post. Looking at my outfit right now, I can't quite understand how I started from that idea and got to wearing high-waisted long jeans instead of shorts or a skirt. I guess the open side of this pair of jeans, which I am basically obsessed with and it took me about 2 months to find my size in the store, can count as useful for the heat. This type of bottoms come in handy especially for those who aren't big fans of culottes (if there's someone out there whatsoever?) and I think once you own a pair, you'll inevitably love them.

One Of Those Days

Those 45 Celsius Degrees cannot stop me from wearing jeans, all right? Ok, that is not entirely true, but even though I was melting off in this outfit at 9 p.m. I have proudly pulled it off that evening. There are some days when I just don't feel like showing too much skin no matter the temperature and somehow out of all the possibilities it all comes back around jeans...and sneakers. 😁

June Crush: Sunglasses

Something quite unforeseeable, I know. From the moment when it's starting to warm up,  sunglasses are the number one accessory that I suddenly can't live without. This month I have discovered that there are many other shapes (wow!) that suit my facial features as well as the cateye ones do. And even though I didn't include much of those other shapes in this post, because the cateye type is still my first love, I have recently purchased two peculiar pairs I plan on showing off soon.

I always felt like wearing sunglasses, no matter the shape, lenses or border, makes people look badass in some kind of way. Like they don't only block the sun rays, but other stuff too: hate, conversations, people...depends on how you wear them. However some sunnies became overworn in the past few years. For me it's more interesting to choose odd sunglasses as long as you look good and they get their job done, so down below I have found some particular cool pairs that are waiting to be checked out.

Turned Loose

If someone would've told me 2 years ago that I was gonna choose culottes and wide leg pants over my precious skinny jeans, I would've surely laughed in their face. Well, as time went by, I found myself searching every store for loose and oversized clothing, especially bottoms, since for me this part makes the difference between feeling comfortable and wry.

These floral printed pants are my obsession at the moment and I really wish I'll find another similar pair to buy soon. They even have a chance to overcome my summer love for high waisted denim shorts, but we'll see about this...Writing these lines with a small headache and sunburnt skin (I love it when I make smart decisions, like spending half a day by the pool without sunscreen) makes me realize that I have an entire exam-free summer to play dress-up and see where fashion tastes take me... 😁

Vanilla Light

I feel like my university has decided to mess up our first month of summer and postponed the exam session as long as it could. That would be the reason why I am drowning right now in hundreds of pages of work, while most of my friends are on the verge of moving onto more appealing, weather appropriate activities. And even though in the past few weeks I have discovered a whole new level of procrastination, somehow things today have been so productive that I could afford to award myself with a blogging break.

I took these pics last week in a gorgeous sunset light. They weren't exactly part of the plan, so you'll have to excuse my not so dressed up look and the wrinkles on my dress. I am not so skilled in the art of ironing whatsoever, but the item still looks pretty dainty. And yes, despite the fact that I am too tall to wear it that way, the garment was created to be worn as a dress. I love the material and the flowy pattern which is creating the illusion of ruffles. Feel free to use my coupon code Diana 576 for it and other items that you like on www.vipme.com for orders over 50$.

Bow Me Dear

In between sneakers and hoodies, a part of me will always crave feminine, girlish, dainty garments. I think this is strongly related to my early childhood, when my mother used to dress me in pretty pink dresses and tie my hair up with big white ribbons. After I had earned the right to pick my own clothes I remember going through a 'pink detox' phase and having a crush on everything black and boylike. Looking back on that I think it is safe to say that my way of dressing today is pretty much explainable...

What is not very explainable whatsoever is my need to add tender touches to my looks lately, which is how I ended up picking this shirt. Its fabric is soft and the sleeve and back details are the main reason why I got it. It was a gift from www.vipme.com and I will link it below as well as some other similar items to what I'm wearing for they have a wide range of cool products. Also, if you like what you see on their website, you can use my code Diana576 for dollars off orders over 50. 

I am ready for a summer full of bows, ruffles, and ribbons. 😋 😋

May Crush: Denim Jackets

There is a high chance that leather jackets will never be missing from my wardrobe, but lately I have been obsessing over almost every denim one that I have seen in the stores. I found myself buying 3 of them in the past months and I'm hardly helping myself from purchasing another one, considering the fact that summer is just a few days away. Truth be told, it hasn't exactly been the hottest Spring I have ever lived (in my entire 18 years of existence...) and since I was finding leather jackets a little too much and blazers slightly not enough, denim seemed like the right choice for the weather outside.

Another reason why I fell in love with them is because the more oversized one is, the better you're going to look in it, which isn't exactly the case with leather jackets. Or at least not my case. This comparison has to stop here until I have to name this post 'Denim Jackets Vs. Leather Jackets'. I'll leave below some really cool pieces that I found so you should check them out and see if my theories are accurate.  😜

Emerald

Somehow I managed to stay away from this blog for over a month now. Not that it would be the first time, but I really don't plan on making a habit out of this. One of the main reasons why I hate being away is that whenever I get back with a new blog entry, I completely mess up the setting and between the last outfit and the new one is usually no connection. But due to Bucharest's overwhelmingly warm weather it's actually not that bad this time...

Hint: I wasn't melting off completely in this long sleeve dress. Even though there were 26 Celsius degrees (and I could add 3 more considering that I was on the top of a building with no sign of shade anywhere), the silky material and the ruffle ending of the dress kept me cool. It is my favorite garment at the moment and that says a lot since I am very picky when it comes to prints. 💖 And probably the best part is the color 'cause I have nothing similar in my wardrobe and haven't seen something very much alike in the stores. You can shop for the floral print dress here and if you're looking for more one of really cool then take a look at the VIPme website.

Unbreakable

The thing with jumpsuits is that they're basically made for lazy people who are too damn passive to pick a top and some bottoms. Or that's just me. Either way, I can picture myself wearing them a lot in the near future, just hoping that it won't get to me like the backpack madness. Speaking of which, this cute little guy is the last one that I have to show off and I solemnly promise that I won't buy another backpack...in the next few months.

You know how everyone makes jokes about women and their addiction to bags/shoes? As I am growing up I tend to understand them better and better. No matter how many pairs of sneakers I own, there will always be a certain type missing. Bags are needless to mention. 

Lately, I have had a problem with mini-backpacks. I am still searching for the ideal one, the one that is stylish and small, but large enough to fit my basic stuff: purse, camera, phone. So recently, this weird mania got me buying 3 really similar backpacks in one week. None of them fully fits in the description above, but I got them anyway. Why? I have no rational answer for that. But look at this cute little one that I'm wearing...I just couldn't help it.

Black Interference

Never have I ever thought I'll find myself at the point where I'll be forcing the chill weather, but this rad bomber just had to be worn. Not to mention the backpack and the sunnies, but I'll get a lot more chances to overwear these two cuties.

I go crazy over items that can make you feel badass. I find these somewhere between girly, frilly, pink, flowerly stuff and basic, comfort zone-ish looks. A mesh top, a tiger on my back, a pair of patent boots...I still felt cool in these even though outside were like 25 Celsius degrees. One of my friends told me a while ago that he could surely identify which items I'd buy from a store because I have a pretty obvious style. I was like ' NOO, YOU CAN'T ', so he went ahead and left me speechless when he pointed out exactly what I would have and wouldn't have worn. I could only find that funny af since every time my dad feels overly loving and decides to buy me something to wear the gift ends up returned or given away...Mind sharing with him a few tips?
