After days and days of rain and fog, the sun finally showed up this weekend.
I was surprised to see how everything has changed. Trees have turned gold and red and the leaves laying on the ground are painted in hundreds of different colors. Here are the pictures, I hope you enjoy them!

layering 1It was cloudy, windy and too chilly that day to throw only a coat over my shoulders and step out into that unfriendly weather. Wearing layers of clothes is the answer however, when putting together than many layers, things can go wrong in an instant. So the main question is – how to do it properly?
In my case, it was quite simple. The maxi dress I am wearing is thin and light which is what you want to when you are looking to pile on more clothes since the most important in layering is let the clothes breath. As the sleeves are short I wanted something thicker to keep me warm and that would at the same time fit under my coat. The cardi/coat I went for is not only super comfy but it is also matching my dress. Mixing navy blue and burgundy is one of my favorite color combo for fall so naturally I put on my navy coat and accessorized it with an oversized blue and white scarf.

Thank you for visiting my blog guys!

PLAID, LEATHER, KNIT & SUNSHINE

I honestly cannot be happier these days!
After two weeks of depressive weather and poor light, the Sun finally showed up its face yesterday. I woke up with so much energy and positivity. The sunshine has so much positive influence on my mood that as soon as I opened my eyes, I jumped out of bed (which is so unusual for me), started organizing my day, my week, the holidays and the list goes on… That felt good!
After a productive morning, I had a very productive afternoon too! Don’t know if it is the weather or not, but I got a clear and definite ‘yes’ from my husband when I asked him if he’ll go with me for a session of shopping at the mall. The last time we went shopping together was like a year ago, you know how men are…
Anyways, before going to the mall we stopped at this beautiful spot not far from where we live to take a few shots. The view was impressive as usual. Is there anything prettier than a view of sunny snowy mountains ? It is so relaxing and pure and every time I see them, I cannot wait to go snowboarding.
The outfit I picked out for yesterday was super comfy and cozy, exactly what I was looking for since shopping can sometimes be very exhausting. I went for the plaid shirt as it goes perfectly with the actual mood. Tartan patterns always reminded me of Christmas so it was an obvious choice. I usually wear it buttoned up but this time I wanted to play with layers and decided to wear a white t-shirt under it. The faux-leather pants added a rock’n’roll therefore interesting vibe to the whole look so that is why I wore them instead of a pair of jeans. As for the shoes, it didn’t take me long to choose. I will never wear anything else than sneakers for a shopping session, never! Hats off to all those women and girls I saw yesterday strolling through the mall and carrying their shopping bags, their bulky coats and wearing heels! Speaking of bulky coats, I definitely didn’t want to carry around my down coat which tends to annoy me pretty quickly as I have to have my hands free to touch all the fabrics, so this time I turned on my brains while still at home and decided to wear my warm knitted oversized cardigan which once I was hot, put in the shopping bag.

Take care guys!

RANDOM PHOTOGRAPHY

GET LUCKYThis is the only car air  freshener I ever bought and this just because it was a four-leaf clover.

SKY & BIRDS Spring in Paris. About 8pm.
While taking a walk with my sis and niece, I couldn’t resist the urge to take a picture of these ‘agitated’ birds flying back and forth like in the Hitchcock movie.
It was beautiful to look at, but we anyways walked quickly towards the house…
you never know! ^^

FLOWERSIn my garden in Croatia.
It was the beginning of Spring, the flowers were beautiful, the light was perfect and … click !
It is my favorite picture actually.

CAT I am so in love with this Parisian cat!
While I was taking picture after picture, he stayed still, stared at me the whole time and even after I left he didn’t move an inch.
Cats are crazy.

LEAFSimply a leaf.

BIRDFreedom.
Ironically, I am afraid of flying with airplanes but if I could have one magical power, it would be flying.

CAT 2This is Miki, my sister’s cat descendant.
He is living a happy life somewhere in ‘wild’ Croatia.

SCORPION I came across this little bastard this summer in Krk, Croatia.
So my first reaction was to find as much information as possible on Croatian scorpions and on  Wiki they said there are not very dangerous. Pfiou!
I slept badly that night though…

Hope you’ll enjoy my pics guys!

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.

OTOČEC, RELAIS ET CHÂTEAUX

OTOCEC 1

I remember like it was yesterday, the first time I visited Grad Otocec near Novo Mesto. My husband took me there, as we were looking for a location to have our wedding ceremony and I instantly fell in love with it. I always dreamed of an outdoor wedding reception and Otocec got it all; a magnificent small castle, amazingly well-decorated and maintained, situated in an exceptional green landscape all surrounded by water. Our reception was magnificent so this little treasure island has a special place in my heart and since then, whenever I can, I go there for a walk and enjoy its peace and nature.
The pictures are obvious, it’s a magical place. Enjoy the pictures folks!
