DECONSTRUCTING THE OUTFIT

by Silvia Cristescu


What I enjoy most about spring (and especially in Bucharest) is that you can dress with lots of layers on top and wear sandals at the same time. So yesterday, I had fun wearing this outfit, which incorporates some of the seasons trends: pajama clothing, bright colours, sportswear and oversized coats. You know I'm usually not into bright colours, but this season since red became so trendy again, I decided to give it a try and style it my way. 

I'm wearing Marks&Spencer shirt, H&M jacket, Weekday trench coat, Proenza Schouler jeans, Castaner espadrilles.


les classiques: BANDANA SCARF

by Silvia Cristescu in ,


A classic that made its way back in fashion. Seen on many fashionistas around the world, the bandana scarf is one accessory you need to wear this season. How to make it cool and modern? There are many ways to wear it - either you go for the classic version and you tie it around the neck (in this case, pair it with some shirt and jeans), or you can accessorize your bag with it or tie your hair when you go to the beach. 

Where to find one?Chan Luu on Net-a-Porter, Mango and ASOS have a selection of bandana scarves.

SUIT YOURSELF

Dressing up for the office doesn't have to be boring. You just need some carefully selected jackets, always keep in mind to look for something minimal, but with a twist and pair them with some modern cut trousers. Try to go out of the confort zone and give a new sense to the concept of office attire. 

The Monday morning inspiration comes from a story found on The Line. You can read the full story here.


SHOE CRUSH

by Silvia Cristescu in


The easiest way to update your wardrobe every season is to buy some trendy shoes. Even though I am the first to watch the seasonal trends and discover the must-haves, when I go shopping, I tend to buy something more clasic that I could wear for a longer period of time. Still, I always make an exception when it comes to shoes, because they instatly give your outfits a new look. Just put on a pair of jeans and a white shirt and try to change the shoes. You'll see they will make you look either more elegant or casual, according to your choice. 

Last week, my friend, Irina told me she made her wishlist of shoes she would like to wear this summer and it made want to do the same. I would like to stop wearing my Birkenstocks and  sneakers and go for something more elegant and chic this season. So here it is - my wishlist shoes for Spring-Summer 2016.  

Marni sandals | Sandro shoes | Castaner espadrilles | COS shoes | Topshop shoes | Zara sandals


MONDAY TO FRIDAY

by Silvia Cristescu in


I must admit in the past couple of weeks I've been working a lot and in my spare time I simply had no energy or motivation to post on the blog. Starting a blog is easy, but maintaining it is hard. Dressing up in a fancy way can become tiring and the truth is most of the looks we see on fashion blogs (even though they look very stylish) are not confortable or practical in everyday life. Wearing high heeled sandals with an oversized winter coat can look very nice, but seriously who can go out like that? I also post outfits I would wear only on special occasions (like an event or a party), but now I decided to post 5 outfits I actually wore last week. 

Since it's finally warm outside and I just bought the trench coat from Weekday I kept dreaming about in the past month, let's say I was motivated to put a little bit more effort in my everyday looks. Hope it will inspire you casual/work wardrobe.
