KNIT AND STRIPES

LOTD 1

Today’s look of the day consists of a very smooth cashmere striped dress which I wore under a very cozy and warm oversized cardigan. I love the feeling this cardigan gives me every time I wear it; the impression that I haven’t left my bed and that I’m still under my quilt. If this isn’t the best feeling ever, I don’t know what is!
This is what I love most about oversized knitwear which is ideal for the type of chilly weather we currently have in Slovenia. I just hope it’s not going to rain again, ’cause rain sucks, right?! Not only I feel depressed as soon as it starts raining but it prevents me from shooting outdoor pictures, it also ruins all my look from head to toe, unless I carry my super large and heavy umbrella which is also super bulky. It just goes on and on and on… Hopefully, we will experience a rainless end of autumn, that would be awesome!

Wish you all a great Saturday night!

BLED : Lake + Castle + Island

BLED 1
The Bled castle overlooking the Bled lake

My day trip to bled was peaceful and invigorating at the same time. I promised to publish more landscape pictures for you to discover the beauty of this Slovenian heaven on Earth, so here are the images I took when I wasn’t posing in front of the camera. ^^
The only problem was that we have arrived there a bit too late, and since the sun goes down pretty early now the light wasn’t very good. So obviously, we didn’t manage to take a walk around the lake or even go a bit further to Bohinj, but we will make more efforts the next time and go there earlier to fully enjoy the natural environment this magical place if offering.

In addition to the pictures, I have to share with you a funny story that happened on the island. Just before boarding on our small boat to get back to the land, we asked a Chinese tourist to take a picture of us, and while we were posing, more Chinese people arrived from nowhere (like the Walkers from the Walking Dead haha) and all started taking pictures of us like we were some monkeys. One of them even followed us to show the pic he snapped. That was pretty funny.

I hope you’ll enjoy my photographs guys. Take care!

DAY TRIP TO BLED

BLED 1

ZARA leather jacket, t-shirt and earrings, GAP jeans, GAMLOONG leather boots, H&M rings

This was my second time visiting Bled (Slovenia). Three years ago, I visited the castle with my friends and family who came from Paris for my wedding. This time, we rented a small boat and went straight to the Bled Island in the middle of the Lake Bled and I enjoyed it more this time around.
Firstly, the atmosphere and the landscape are hundreds time prettier during fall, particularly when it’s sunny and a bit windy. You got to witness leaves falling from trees which are like bouncing from place to place, flying, making fall enchanting. In the background, the forest is painted in so many colors that it makes your speechless while staring at it. Nature is so inspiring. Secondly, I prefer the view of Bled from the ground as you can admire the castle from the lake and island as well as from every single hotel, restaurant or street in the city. Don’t get me wrong, the view from the Bled Castle is astonishingly beautiful so it would be a shame to miss it if you’re one day visiting Slovenia.
Anyways, while picking my outfit of the day, my wish was to blend with the environment and it came as natural to wear my goldenrod leather jacket which I paired with black and denim. This way, the jacket became the key piece of the look and moreover respected the surrounding nature. Once I went through the pictures, I was so happy for having picked out this jacket! Hope you’ll enjoy my pictures guys.

ps: Whilst today’s post is all about me and my look of the day, tomorrow you’ll see more pictures of the richness and beauty Bled has to offer to its visitors.

SUNNY AUTUMN

SUNNY AUTUMN 1

I am wearing : H&M baseball jacket and t-shirt, Stradivarius jeans

Fall is the worst season of the year for me since it puts an end to Summer, it rains all the time and trees are bare of leaves. At my great surprise, I have learned to appreciate the good things Autumn has to offer. Have to admit that this mild weather helps me a lot!
I have forced myself to think of Autumn as the beginning of something new. In my world, the new year kicks off in September, a month when I start focusing on new projects.
This year for instance, I have decided to start this blog which made my bucket list a bit shorter. But there are still many others, some of which have to wait another year or two to get started and some I have been struggling for years to achieve. Still not done to this day by the way!
However, no matter how demanding those projects and challenges are, I try to face them in style.
Yesterday’s weather was extremely mild and sunny (today’s too) and it felt like Spring actually. Nevertheless, I always carry a light jacket with me in case it gets chilly but these days short sleeves are all you need.

I got this green and white baseball jacket at H&M a few years ago and it’s still like new. It’s more like a sweatshirt which makes it very comfy and pleasant to wear.
My love for baseball jackets (or American football jackets) goes back to my childhood, when I was dreaming of being a cheer-leader ^_^. I got the first one at the age of 11-12 from my cousin. It was red with white faux leather sleeves and was brought from the USA … I was ecstatic!!
I like wearing this jacket with ripped jeans and plain t-shirts whenever I’m planning on having a busy day. The only thing missing is a baseball cap but I’m still searching for THE ONE.
