Rainy Autumn... don`t care

If the previous days I was wearing shorts and sandals, today things were completely different. I mean, it was extremely cold outside and the plus was brought by the rain. So, my outfit was a complete chaos because I combined all the things that were in the front of my wardrobe. I have to confess that up until this moment, I wasn`t able to completely change and arrange my wardrobe with items suitable for this season. 

But, I promise you that I will do my best to change it asap, since the weather is not going to change too soon. Nothing surprising, is almost October but, I enjoyed so much the previous days...and I think that it is also suitable to say the last days of great weather, that I completely forgot that soon wi
ll be the time to change the wardrobes.

Lucky me, I had some new in items that I loved and combine them all together: This new pair of boyfriend jeans from C&A that I wanted for a while due to their color, the new Tamaris boots ♥ and the perfect lace-up blouse.
Oh and yes, as much as I love to wear heels, from time to time I switch it to flats and feel extremely good and comfortable :D

Wish you all a wonderful day and can`t wait to hear your impressions

Stefanel Launch Event - Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection

 It`s official: For me, the Stefanel Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection Launch Event was the favorite one of this month. The set up was perfect and we all agreed upon the fact that the location together with the building and the created environment brings you an elegant, exclusive and for sure the Italian vibe. The night was completed by the presence of Carlo Stefanel, the commercial director!!

I`m not going to offer you to many details because I want to recommend you to go and see it by yourself. You won`t regret it and for sure, you fell in love with it ♥  But what I can tell you, is that my favorites where the pastel items and also the blouses & shirts with accessorized lapel.

Also, I was happy to spend some time again with some special bloggers and friends. You know that we all attend to different events and it is supposed that we see each other quite often but is not always like this due to the lack of time and availability of each of us. But regarding this, we enjoy seeing each other from once in a while ♥ 

I hope you like my pictures and I want to wish you all a wonderful Sunday

Street chic with Bomber Jacket and High Heels

Again the lunch time and I spend it again writing a new blog post. Lately I used to edit and write the post in the evening for the second day but it seems that my spare time is less than it used to be. 

But, it doesn`t really matter because I got on the right track and started to post more as some of you asked and I hope you enjoy it. For today I have prepared a casual outfit but the high heels couldn`t miss. With this kind of weather changing from one hour to another is hard to find the suitable clothes if you are busy all day long but my outfit was suitable for a few days ago when it was better. 

I hope you like it and can`t wait to hear your impressions.

#BeautifulRomania - Brasov day 2

 The time came for the second post of my small and wonderful trip to Brasov. I will present you a mix between camera and phone pictures so please, don`t be so judgmental regarding the quality of the pictures.

Sure, the are pictures from the Old Center of the city, if you`re around you should also walk on the smallest Street in Brasov called Strada Sforii and you should also take a walk up to Tampa if you want to see the entire city from above. As you can see I changed my outfit a bit for the walk that day because the first outfit with the skirt and the oxford shoes are not really suitable for that place.

I mean, this was my suggestion but if you do  insist, as seen on a lady up there, you can also go for heels...hahahah!!! Be sure that I`m joking and it was completely silly.

And the last thing I want to mention before leaving you with the picture is the fact that Brasov is the perfect place you need to be if you want to escape the city rush and to avoid the business parks from Bucharest. Don`t get me wrong, I love the rush and the always busy aspect of my city, but I just felt the need to go somewhere and relax between people that don`t check the time each and every second.

I know that I have to work more on my travel pictures but it`s a start and I will do better next time. Hope you can enjoy my weekend in pictures and I will do more posts like this. It`s a promise. 

 Kisses, Manuella ♥

#beautifulRomania - Visiting Brasov day 1

 As you know, I just came back from a small trip with my love and my friends in Brasov. If we have to talk about style, fashion and my outfits, well, I preferred to be comfortable because I had in mind to explore a bit the city but also to have a few days to relax and recharge my batteries :D

And now a few things about the city :D In my opinion only good ones like the cats all over the city. I love them and I had the chance to share my meal with them :)) I am the one who shares with everyone in need. I mean is enough place for everybody. And also what it needs to be mentioned is the fact that even if there are cats and lots of tourists the city is extremely clean and well taken care of. So thumbs up for this city!!

You have also asked me where I`ve stayed. It was an apartment in a new Residential Complex in Brasov, named Avantgarden. It is extremely close to the city center but I recommend it if you come with your own car or if you are willing to take a cab every time you go out. The distance between it and the city center is quite big for a walk, around 10km even if you see it around 3km on different websites. I mean, this was the distance showed on our gps. But anything else is just perfect there. Loved the place and for sure I will stay there the next time because I love to stay in quite, clean and spacious places.

The food... oh well, the food is great. Casa Hirscher, Festival 39 and another local restaurant situated in Piata Sfatului were between our favorites.  You can find in these restaurants local Romanian food but also international cuisine. So there will be restaurants that will satisfy all your tastes. 

You`ll enjoy for sure to walk the small streets around the city center for sure and you`ll don`t get the chance to get bored there. ♥ This were my first impressions from the first day. And I completely forgot, the Olympic Swimming Pool was completely changed and improved. I remember being there I think 10 years ago and it looked horrible, but congrats on it and for you my readers, I will show you more pictures with it tomorrow. 

Wish you all a wonderful day

I have to tell you that the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the pictures with this outfit was "Flawless". And this time I`m talking about flawless not in the actual sense of the word but since I`m a big fan of Beyonce ( I know all her songs by heart, hahaha) the word was making reference to her song. I think it has a great impact and if you want to listen her song while taking a look at my pictures click HERE. Love it and for the sake of the lyrics here is my fav part, extremely motivational and I`m not here to give life advises but live your life, chase your dreams and never give up.

" We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls:
You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man."

Right now, I`m on my trip to Brasov so this was uploaded on the road. :D But I`m still waiting for your impressions. Wish you all a wonderful weekend!!

Red Alert

I know I had a small break yesterday but believe me I couldn`t take not even a picture :)) You might also have seen my absence on facebook and instagram too. But today I`m back and I`m back for good ... I mean I hope I will surprise you in a good way because I just love this dress. And I think is not only about the dress but also about the color. It seems that red suits me good and it gives me the best vibe in comparison with all the other colors.

This is it for today because I have to prepare my luggage for this weekend because we will have a small trip to Brasov. So, see you there my readers and I will share with you more pictures from there on Facebook and Instagram.

Crop top and High waist midi leather skirt

Is lunch time and I decided to spend all my time writing a new blog post. I mean eating at the right time is important and while I was editing the pictures and while I`m writing this text I enjoy a cup of cafe latte, a delicious croissant together with a glass of fresh juice. I know it sounds like breakfast but actually it is for me because I didn`t had enough time to eat in the morning and move it to lunch. 

Talking about coffee, you can also see that some of these pictures were taken during my coffee break yesterday at my favorite place in the Old Center and for sure, in front of it :)). When you have to take them fast and here I am talking about the pictures, you don`t think too much about the background and just to show a smile and ....be fast :))

I hope you like the pictures and that you also have a wonderful day ♥

Fringes from Summer to Fall

Good Morning loves! Today I want to hare with you a sporty chic outfit that combines my leather fringes skirt with a pair of Air Max sneakers. If you remember or if you`re new around here, I have posted this skirt at the beginning  of the year in a completely different combination and you can see it Here (even if it was in the winter, not really in the summer). It is extremely nice to see how certain clothing items remain from one season to another. 

This summer I have invested in many fringed items like dresses, skirts, jackets and shoes. And lucky me I can still wear some of them as long as the weather will allow me to do so. And the leather fringed skirt you see today is one of them and I think will continue to see it around here.

Also, I want to tell you that all the items are in my wardrobe from at least one year. If you`re asking me, this is what we should call smart shopping. To invest in items that will last longer than just one season and will be still on the catwalks the next one. I have to admit that this is not the case for all the items I`m buying but some of them last longer than the others in my closet.

I hope you`ll be inspired and that you enjoy my latest outfit post.
Wish you all a wonderful day

It was all white for the weekend

Happy Monday everyone!! I have prepared for you a new outfit and I have to say that the all white combinations are easy to be combined and also easy to wear. Even if I had this pair for a white now, I just forgot that I own it and when I started the seasonal wardrobe changing I just found them and instantly decided to create the perfect outfit for them :D

Also for the all white outfit I decided to add some gold touch details and keep it simple in the same time. A pair of high heels was also needed since the pants are long enough to cover them entirely. I don`t really like when the pants are much more longer that the leg length together with the shoes, even if we are talking about flats or heels, the case will be the same. The reasons are clear... I think: First of all all the dirt from the streets will be on your pants, the second reason is related to the was the pants will look because they will get ruined and I can understand the ripped jeans, but not in this way and also because it is not really suitable and will make each and every single person smaller that she actually is. 

So I hope you`ll enjoy my latest suggestion and I promise to be back soon with more outfit posts :D I have seen that you enjoy it and I have big plans on my mind ♥

Wish you all a wonderful and successful week

The city rush on a Saturday Evening

 It seems that Bucharest is not sleeping this weekend and I think that this is applied in all the cities :D From Monday on all the kids will go to school and their parents need to get everything done by then. So everywhere you want to go is extremely crowded and even hard to get there since the traffic is not helping at all. 

Don`t get me wrong, I`m not nervous nor jealous, I just remember that part of my life with a huge smile on my face. It`s extremely nice to have this kind of memories and even more I have to be grateful to my parents that introduced me to the sporting life because I had the chance to meet so many persons, to travel a lot and to live those emotional moments before and after the competitions. Oh, such days are hard to forget and if there are parents between you my dear readers, I highly recommend you send your kids to any kind of sports. And believe me, they can do them both and right here I mean that they can do sports and still learn what they are taught in school and get big grades :D

Regarding the outfit, well, I had the chance to wear these red fringe sandals from my Inia Lavin leather shoes collection. I have them for a while now as you might have seen on facebook and instagram but never had the chance to wear them. 

Also, the good news, is that I`m preparing a new autumn/winter collection that I hope it will be ready at the beginning of the next month. What do you say about it? If you have any preferences or ideas I will be happy to hear them and get inspired in order to create the shoes of our dreams :D

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend even if outside is cloudy

Do we wear jumpsuits this season?

 The answer is for sure yes and also yes for denim jumpsuits. Jeans are always part of the fashion shows in different forms and shapes from one season to another. The denim jumpsuits are quite funny for me. I had others in the past and this year I changed a bit the style, to look more like a constructor worker. Yes, I`m joking, but I`ve tried to combine a bit the sportish items with the chic ones as you also have seen in some of the a/w 2015-2016 fashion shows. Also I think that you have noticed that this post together with the previous one include autumn/winter fashion trends that in my case, suit my style. I`m sure is not so difficult to pick your favorite trend and to do it your way, so make a try and you`ll be amazed how things can turn out.

 It was a funny photoshoot and you can also see in the last pictures how things turned out. I`m not used to wear this kind of caps and also not the other way round. But lately I also challenge myself and my style. I want to try new styles but as you can see the feminine part is always present no matter what I`m trying to do. Maybe i should try harder...hmmm!! We`ll see how things will evolve.

I hope this is another outfit that can inspire you and if you think that the no sleeves jumpsuit is not appropriate for this kind of weather you can always add a leather biker jacket :D You`ll change the style a bit but it will look awesome. Another idea will be to add a white or plaid shirt under the jumpsuit..mm? I am sure you can also find other great ideas and I really invite you to share them with me if you want. It will be like a change of experiences :D

Kisses and wish you all a wonderful weekend (sunnier I meant)

What not to wear during the windy days :))

 Today as you all know was a windy and cloudy kind of a day. Indeed, is autumn and this kind of weather is actually appropriate for this time of the year. If yesterday I showed you a wonderful summerish outfit, today things had changed. 

Regarding the title: " What not to wear during the windy days" it refers to my outfit, obviously. I mean, who decides to wear hats on windy days? And also who decides to wear large dresses with high slit?! 
The answer to all this questions is ... Me :)) It sounds like in those commercial when they try to sell you something and the only answer to all your problems is that specific product or service...

Anyway, talking more about the outfit, if you want to be comfortable and still be updated and wear items from the a/w 2015-2016, you can for sure go for this kind of red plaid shirtdress. Sporty yet chic due to the my new pair of boots. And another inside aspect, the only thing I was thinking during the day was that the rain won`t start because I didn`t want to get wet on my feet fingers :))

I hope you like it and let`s hope for more sunny days :D Fingers crossed.

I still dream about the summer

White and gold are the top fav combinations of the summer. Sure, when it comes to me. I just love how the gold accents fit the pure white clothing items and the previous days when I wore this outfit I couldn`t help myself and I picked the summer essentials (and not only, but in this combination for sure). 

But I have to confess that I see this dress in many other combinations like for example with over the knee boots, a black/silver bag and a wonderful hat :D Simple yet, it brings you the feeling of an early autumn. But, today was not that day. Even more, I know is getting colder but is more than great outside and for me is the perfect weather when I can wear anything I want and feel great without being too cold or too hot. 

So, I hope you enjoy my summerish outfit because as far as I`ve heard bad weather is so close and I already had prepared some Autumn outfits :D

Wish you a wonderful night

Dolce & Gabbana Spanish Inspiration

For all the Fashionistas... I`m sure you all know the Dolce & Gabbana Collection inspired by the Spanish Traditions, right? That collection was also at the roots of my outfit decision for today: Black Lace, Low Ponytail, Red Lips and High Heels.Oh, I forgot about the gold accessories ♥ These were my ingredients for this look that I really hope you enjoy. 

Simple, yet extremely attractive and catchy.  This was the look I had the opportunity to wear during the weekend and I had the chance to picture it right before sunset. I hope you like it and also I hope that it can inspire your future decisions  :D

Let me know what you think about it. Thank you all and wish you a wonderful night

Is time for back to office outfit inspiration

Friday aka "Funday"!! Yes indeed. When friday arrives it seems that we all change our mood and become happier. I can bet is due to the free days that are coming with no stress and no more work. At least
 for some of us because there are still persons that still work during the weekend, as it is my case. I don`t really have a differentiating line between working days and free days. 

Well, is not really anything scientific about it. I have to make pictures and keep you updated every day. This is the most desirable case :))

But, moving forward, here is the "Back to office" outfit inspiration, after the previous post that was name "Back to school" (you can see it Here). For me, under specific circumstances, both outfits are extremely similar. The office and the school outfits impose the so called "uniform". In most of the cases, we say they are composed by: Skirt, blazer, shirt or dresses & high heels/ flats. These are the basics that will always be included in this types of outfits.

The difference here can lay in the cuts and combinations.  As you previously seen, I decided to pick my cape blazer instead of a standard blazer. Also, i decided to pick a brooch that can add a little something, instead of the classical necklace or the statement necklace. 

And one more important thing I have to mention, is related to my make-up and I will switch it to Romanian.

Stiti deja, ca eu nu sunt chiar foarte talentata in arta machiajului. Am avut diverse incercari insa de cele mai multe ori apelez la clasicul cat eye si ruj rosu... Insa pentru pachiajul de astazi trebuie sa ii multumesc Andrei. Daca ma intrebati, de putine ori am fost multumita de machiajele obtinute de diverse persoane. Am preferatele mele, iar Andra se numara printre ele ♥ Va invit sa ii vizitati pagina si va veti convinge de ce poate sa realizeze si cu siguranta veti apela la serviciile ei :D

Back to English now, I hope you like it and maybe you`ll be inspired.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend

Back to School with Deichmann

Astazi aleg sa va scriu in romana. Stiu ca intelegeti cu totii engleza...normal, insa este o postare cu o tematica ce nu ma poate lasa indiferenta: " Back to School". Ei bine, provocarea vine de la Deichmann, iar eu am ales sa compun aceasta tinuta pornind de la minunatii pantofi... desigur cu talpa joasa ( cel putin asa era pe vremea mea... la scoala nu se mergea cu tocuri :))) )

Acum sa nu credeti ca pe vremea mea....inseamna ca a trecut atat de mult timp,sunt "doar" 5 ani, insa am observat cum lumea incepe sa se schimbe si nu cred ca mai putem spune ca ceva este imposibil.

Cand eram la scoala/liceu... stiti foarte bine ca principala ocupatie era sport de performanta, iar acest lucru nu ne permitea de cele mai multe ori sa purtam uniforme. Desigur, profesorii au fost mereu intelegatori cu privire la uniforma proprie... De cele mai multe ori purtam tinute sport iar treningul era cel mai des intalnit. Asa ca aceasta tematica nu face decat sa ma bucure si sa imi ofere ocazia sa port ce mi-as fi dorit inca de atunci :)) 

Melancolica, stiu... dar cu toate acestea, nu o sa ma vedeti cu 2 codite, ochelari de vedere (pt ca nu Mai port :)), pe vremea aceea ochelarii, aparatul dentar si bretonul erau indispensabile), patratele, penar si harta in spate :)) Cred ca toti avem acele poze facute la inceputul scolii :)) Iar fetele noastre... priceless!!

Oricum, reteta tinutei mele este cat se poate de simpla: Fusta + Sacou, ambele negre, camasa alba, un accesoriu la gat care sa scoata putin tinuta din anonimat si in acelasi timp sa se potriveasca tematicii, o geanta simpla neagra si minunatii pantofi negrii care consider ca sunt mai potriviti decat orice alt gen de pereche de incaltaminte :D

Sper sa va placa si sa va inspire pe viitor... dupa 15 Septembrie mai exact :))

Kisses, Manuella ♥

Tinuta este compusa din:
Sacou: Aici
Camasa: Colectie mai veche
Fusta: Creatie proprie
Geanta: Zara
Incaltaminte: Deichmann
Ochelari de soare: FREYRS

First of September? So what?!

I know is September already but I have promised you for a while that I will tell you my secret regarding the swimming benefits: beside the fact that you get in shape, you can also obtain the perfect and healthy tan even more that these days, the sun is not that strong as it was in the mid summer.

As you may know, I was a professional swimmer for 12 years. I don`t want to talk too much about it, but swimming was and it still is part of my life. And each summer, I obtained the perfect tan which usually kept until November or so. I have to admit that I was exposed to the sun at least 2 hours per day but it was not dangerous at all. 

So usually when I am going to the swimming pool I do the following things:
1. Get the smaller & simple swimsuit :)) you don`t want to look like a zebra or something. I usually have to 2 types of swimsuits. One like in the picture, let`s call it the classical one and another one with not straps, the so called balconette. I change them once in a while in order to eliminate the unaesthetic  marks. 

2. Always shower before you enter the swimming pool and stop using the sun cream or sun oils before entering the swimming pool. Is not healthy for you and for those around you. Even more is not ok if you are not really a good swimmer because if you need help, the people that may help you are not able to keep your hands on you because your skin is way to slippery. 

3. I know you`ll ask me how can you protect your skin if you don`t use the creams. Well the answer is simple. You`re not protecting it. When you swim, the water has the mirror effect and you`ll get the perfect tan, all over your body, uniformly. You won`t get burns, you`ll avoid the red skin aspect and you`re skin won`t be irritated. 

4. You should swim for at least an hour, without too many, long stops at each side of the swimming pool. After one h you`ll already see the skin tone difference :D

5. Last but not least, I will talk about what should be done after the training: First of all take a shower. The pools water usually contains chlorine and this is not really healthy for your skin and even more it makes it drier. After that, when the skin is still a bit wet, you have to apply the after sun cream. I usually use it because it is more beneficial and it hydrates my skin better than any other cream. 

Remember your skin is dry due to the chlorine and you have also been exposed to the sun light. Just for the fact that you did not got sunburned doesn`t mean that your skin is ok and as mentioned, in combination with the chlorine will make your skin even drier. 

Also, since it`s already September, the sun is not that powerful as it was in the mid summer. One more aspect that you should consider. So if there are any open swimming pools around you, now is the perfect moment to relax and train in the same moment, plus you get the bonus: The perfect tan :D

I might have forgot some details but remember take care of your skin and look gorgeous in the same time! Even more, I want to mention that this is my personal advice and that some things may differ from person to person.

I hope you have a wonderful day and I will share with you more pictures from the swimming pool tomorrow!
Kisses, Manuella ♥
