A very dear friend of mine with whom I shared the school seat/desktop even since I was 7 years old send me a very nice catalog that was shot in the county where I (and her) were born: Maramures. So, I am proud to present you a little bit of the atmosphere. When I was a child, this spirit was so well known to me and did not consider it important because I spend a lot of my summer holidays with my grandparents that were (still are) living in a quite traditional village, but now I kind of miss it.
I personally like the idea, even though I read here that the girl is “clearly out of place, too overdressed for her surroundings and five inches taller than the locals. Is she in a witness protection program? If so, it’s not a very good disguise. She also has a clone-looking friend (sister?) who shows up in some of the photos. Together, they both have the appearance of being genetically engineered, advanced human specimens.“
I will also like to add a song that is very suggestive for me: R.E.M – We all go back to where we belong!

Of one thing I am sure: a person wearing a fuchsia outfit will always be remarked (in a good way or bad way, it depends on the rest of the outfit). But a woman in black or white, a white collar type? To tell you the truth, my neon color preference started also because of the dress code dictated by my first serious job, a law firm where if I dare to wear a jeans skirt and a white shirt outfit on a day that was not Friday, I was bitterly reproved.
So, fed up with the corporatist business look, I started adding some colors to my day by day outfit: a light purple skirt one day, a neon blue blouse another day, a pink shirt, etc and my outfit became wearable (from my point of view, of course). So, after almost two years and a wardrobe full of neon items, I realized that I miss black and white. And the black and white dress that I found here (but on a shorter version) it seamed like a very good idea.
Who’s wearing stripes and what accessories to such a black and white dress?

Wonderful weather these days, perfect for tennis. I had a lot of outdoor activities these last two weekends and tennis was one of them. Didn’t quite wear a YSL white dress, but it felt awesome! The text that was all over facebook last week is so true: “Let’s have a moment of silence for all those who are stuck in traffic on their way to the gym to ride stationery bicycles” (me included). So, I left the indoor spinning class on Saturday and played some tennis with my friends even if at the beginning the racket was not listening to me, eventually it became obedient.
I also attended my first class of photography, I only wish I could have more time for these classes: there are so many interesting new things to learn. But a friend of mine told me that the only thing standing between me and my passions is the bullshit story (about not having time) I keep telling to myself. True! She got me here, wink!
I was also happy that another friend of mine is opening her own business. Happy Monday!

This week was all about black and white because lately I am trying to get a normal wardrobe and match somehow my rainbow craziness with items in black and white. I am becoming a mature person? Nehhh, I don’t think so, I will never leave the block colors team, but a break is indicated, highly recommended actually.
I always wanted to wear such a hat, but did not find proper event. Maybe when I’ll attend a royal wedding…wink! Source: Pinterest
You know what I like most about Marni at H&M collection? The fact that they decided to go for so many prints and lovely polka dots, my favorite print. I am not a fan of H&M, at all! The low quality of the clothes is the main reason! I love my clothes and I like to think that some of them can accompany me more than one season, but H&M clothes do not have this quality. But Marni for H&M is something else: I irremediable fall in love with those black and blue polka dots coats, especially the long and black one!
I am truly, but truly waiting for this weekend! I’ll take my Ray Bans, my Canon and my flats (the weather forecast is of 20 C degrees) and just walk around on the streets, park, terraces! And also some tennis because the spring is hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Have a wonderful weekend!
It is a fact, the itinerary is complete, the plane tickets reserved and the summer is coming with Spain! Another hectic day in the office, so enjoy the photos of Alexi Lubomirski with Isabeli Fontana for Vogue Spain.
