Lady in red 🌹

As you might have noticed, I took a small break from this "blogging" thing and that was for several reasons: 1. my birthday was on the 8th of August, 2. then we had friends who came to visit us and see Shanghai, so we had quite a busy & fun schedule for six days, showing them the city and also discovering new places, and 3. breaks are much needed sometimes.
I am not sure how often will I be around here in the upcoming weeks because our vacation period will start next week but you can follow me on Instagram because that's where I post new pics every day. Click HERE and hit the "follow" button.

Anyway, to tell you a little something about today's look: I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it and after trying it, I knew it would be the perfect choice for my 30th birthday. And if you know me just a little bit by now, you should already know that a midi dress with cute bows and broderie anglaise will always catch my attention. Not to mention that red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, strength, power, determination, as well as passion, desire and love, and we need a little bit of these all when starting a new chapter in our lives, right?
So this is exactly what I wore when we celebrated our birthdays (mine & my husbands) and this dress will always be a reminder of the day when we turned thirty. ♥️

I chose to pair it this time with my beloved pair of red sandals, to which I added a black bag and sunglasses, both having some golden details. But what I love about this dress is also the fact that I can wear it in a more casual way, with a pair of flat slides or sandals, a straw hat and bag and I totally plan on doing that at the seaside. :) Also, did I tell you that red is the IT color of the upcoming season? If I haven't, I am telling you now, so feel free to invest in some red pieces and add a pop of colour to your daily looks!

Have a lovely new week,
A.

That stylish detail 🍊

Orange is definitely a color I don't wear much. In fact, this top is probably the only one in this shade of orange that I own and I couldn't tell you why exactly because I do think that this color looks great during summer. However, when I began creating this look I actually started with the lovely MINI SILK SCARF which arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to wear it.

Silky, colourful headbands and scarves are a must this season and they dress up any simple outfit and they give it a more beautiful final touch. Depending on how you decide to tie such a scarf, it can prevent your hair to be in your face when you're at the beach, they can even protect your head / forehead from the sun and if you go for a MINI SCARF, you can even wear it tied around your neck, around your wrist or even tied on your bag. I love this tiny detail which will make you look so stylish! So I found my mini scarf at LILYSILK WOMEN COLLECTION and I must tell you it is incredibly soft, silky and pretty, therefore if you like silk garments you should definitely check them out because, besides scarves and other accessories, they also have women clothes, pyjamas, bedding sets, etc. all made out of silk.

If you use the coupon code "flashforwards" on your checkout you will get 16% off your purchase, and if you write the same coupon code in the comment box from your cart you will also get a free SILK EYE MASK. 

Having said that, let me know what you think about this outfit and whether you like to wear headbands this season :)

Have a lovely new week,

On the greener side

 Shirt / Camasa - HERE / AICI (Blue / Albastra) || Jeans / Blugi - Zara || Sandals / Sandale - Zara || Bag / Geanta - Local Store || Necklace / Lant - Bershka

Yes, you guessed it: besides the red garments I also have a thing for red accessories at the moment. But that is probably pretty obvious since this is the third outfit in the last two weeks when I'm wearing this pair of sandals 😀 Though luck, you have to get used to it. 

But leaving the joke aside, green and red look so great together and they complement each other perfectly so I just had to wear some red accessories to this gorgeous SHIRT with green stripes. It made its way into my closet together with the two-piece set you saw in my previous post and I'm utterly in love with it! This is the first shirt with green stripes I ever owned and I never thought it would look so amazing in so many combos or that it would be so pretty to wear this season. Besides this, I love its style, the off the shoulder detail and the big, poofy sleeves, not to mention the quality of the fabric which is just great! I just wish I would have gotten my normal size instead of a size bigger as it is a bit large for me, but that's fine, I found some ways to pull it off quite easily.

I also must admit that I've been wearing it several times already since I got it and it is truly my favourite piece right now: with jeans and red accessories, just like in the photos, with white trousers and black and white accessories (like in my Instastory posts) and even with shorts. The shirt is very versatile and it has a unique design which will make your outfits look stunning. You can check it out HERE and I found it in blue as well, click HERE

Do you like this type of shirts or do you prefer the classic ones?

Have a lovely weekend!
Andra

P.S.: Just so you know, I gave up trying to have a decent hairstyle around here. The wind makes it impossible.
