All is Okay…

red & stripes

Often people judge each other by their appearance and the way they present themselves. Well, these are valid basis when you do not have anything besides that.

But, me, like many people, try to hide how we actually feel. Either because we do not want to be asked again and again about what is going on, but also because basically we do not want to look sad and depressed.

This photo was taken a week ago, when I could not wear heels. Actually, a week later and I still can’t. I had a back pain that spread to my leg and, I am having dificulties walking. But I wanted to look okay.

All is okay when it SEEMS okay…

Paris is Not Romantic, a Diary.

paris notre dame vacation

Yes, I have chosen Paris. And, it was a wise decision! I came back last week, tired and marveled! It is a beautiful, very cultural and expensive city, I must say. I would advise everyone to go to Paris at least once in your life! And trust me, I thought Paris was such a huge cliché!

I don’t think Paris is romantic. How can it be? Everyone is doing the same, at the same time and in the same space! Okay, we have thrown our love lock keys into the river Seine (oops, the bridge is falling apart) and we went to the Eiffel Tower at night. But, none of these places reminded me of romance. It was crowded and everyone was trying to either sell me something or trying to deceive me. Well, almost all cities have these disadvantages, right?

Please  check the Army Museum in the background. What a wonderful building and exhibition! It was weird and impressive to be able to see so many things related to war and death…

I will show you more pictures soon. I hope you enjoyed these. In fact, everything in Paris seems to be buildt to impress. 🙂

Au revoir!

Stripes & Brown, a new approach

skorts shortsOkay, I know. This is not a common combination and you are tired of bloggers posting outfits with this type of shorts, or should I say skorts?

I never had a pair of skorts before. Not even those in white from Zara. I confess that at first I liked it, but after seeing so many women wearing it, I kind of felt like I was going to be 1 in 1000.000000.00000000.000000! Whatever number this is!

But these skorts from Stradivarius completely caught my attention. Maybe it’s the fabric, maybe it’s the color. Maybe it’s both! This color looks great with my skin tone, don’t you think? And, this is how a fairly common piece of clothing blends in and still looks great and fresh.

So, the opportunity to wear it came sooner than I thought. I had an invitation for a Fashion presentation last Saturday, and I really thought I could look fashionable and elegant at the same time. I was talking to my best friend about this same combination: stripes + brown. And, well why not to try it! This was the result.

I hope you enjoy yet another skorts outfit! 🙂

Tchau!

White Obsession: Take II

$_57

 

If there’s such thing as love at first sight, this was it! I fell in love the moment I saw this white pencil skirt. And I couldn’t rest until I have one for myself. Yes, how shallow of me! Who cares? I got the skirt! ^^

I felt like one in a million, or like a million bucks! I felt so feminine and elegant with little (or not so little) effort!

Valentine

Image

Everyone does the same things on Valentine’s Day…and night! Roses, chocolates, perfumes, teddy bears… dinners, Long kisses, promises of eternal Love. It’s true, this time I was one of those millions! But instead I gave him a card – like I’ve always done through all these years we’ve been dating – and a book named 1001 Cars To Dream of Driving Before You Die. Also, I reserved a table at an Italian restaurant I wanted to try for a while now.

Image

He gave me something special that I was waiting for quite some time. But I’ll post about that later on because some adjustments had to be made. The truth is, I liked my present, and so has he.

Like I have mentioned in other posts, I live in a semi tropical island. That means we get to wear all kinds of clothing during winter. Basically, that’s why I wore this last Friday, for our Valentine’s Dinner. I was okay when I left the house, but it got colder later.

Image

The full skirt protected my legs a little bit, but we have snow on the higher mountains and I am always cold. So, you can imagine how cold was I! Anyway, my friends say that I never wear winter appropriate clothing…

This earcuff has a loong story. In fact, this was my third Zara Earcuff. It was sold out in stores, so I bought one in China (imitation, of course). Then, I found one here in my country, from Zara. I have tried to cancel the other one, but I got both. In conclusion, one was too big for my small ears and the other one – from Zara – was broken. Well, how lucky was I? NOT! So, I tried to amend my mistakes and offered the good one to my friend. Then, let’s call it karma, helped a little bit and I’ve found this Zara Earcuff on sale!

And what about my nails? It was all me!

Image

The important thing about this day was that I felt elegant due to my outfit, and very very special because my better half made me feel like that. And, that’s LOVE.

I hope you had LOVE on this day, no matter what kind!
