Rochie cu spatele gol/ Cut-out back dress: Sugarhill Boutique (Asos)
Cizme de vara bej (nude)/ Tan summer boots: Il Passo
Geanta postas/ Satchel bag: Pieces (Asos)

Recunosc, am o mica obsesie cu rochiile cu spatele gol sau decupat :). Iar daca o asemenea rochie se mai intampla sa fie si turcoaz (culoarea mea preferata), cel mai probabil nu va zabovi prea mult intr-unul din wishlist-urile mele (kilometrice!), ci va lua repejor calea dulapului de la mine de acasa :).

Sugarhill Boutique este in opinia mea unul dintre brandurile cele mai dragute pe care le distribuie Asos. Rochia din imagini nu mai este in stoc, dar o alta care imi place mult poate inca fi gasita aici.

Despre cizmele de vara am vorbit deja, le ador! Tin insa sa precizez ca nici saptamana asta, desi a fost putin mai frig, nu am “tradat cauza” si nu am revenit la ciorapi! Sper sa nu-i mai vad pana in noiembrie!

I admit it, I have somewhat of an obsession with open and cut-out back dresses :). And if such a dress happens to be turquoise as well (my favourite colour), it will most likely not stop very long in one of my never-ending wishlists, but will soon start its air journey towards a sweet place called home (aka my closet).

Sugarhill Boutique is in my opinion one of the cutest brands distributed by Asos. The dress in the pics is no longer in stock, but another Sugarhill Boutique dress that I like a lot can still be found here.

I have already talked about summer boots – which I adore! I would just like to state for the record that even though this week has been chillier than last week, I’ve bravely stood my ground and still haven’t worn tights (hopefully I won’t have to wear them till November)!

The Curious Case of the Missing Ring

Planuiam sa numesc acest post ceva de genul “Yey, fara ciorapi!” sau “Yey, a venit primavara” (ceva cu “yey” oricum, care sa marcheze bucuria ca este in sfarsit cald si soare).
Pana la urma am ales varianta de fata (Straniul Caz al Inelului Disparut) ca sa sarbatoresc intamparea cu final fericit legata de acest accesoriu care imi place foarte mult (si care are si valoare sentimentala, pentru ca il am de la Venetia, de care ma leaga numai amintiri frumoase): asadar la finalul sedintei foto pentru acest post, inelul mi-a cazut pe jos in parcare si nu mi-am dat seama decat 2 ore mai tarziu; mama (care este “victima” desemnata sa imi faca pozele) a insistat sa ne intoarcem si, miraculos, l-am gasit, micutul de el, sub aceeasi masina sub care cazuse, inca in stare functionala!

Referitor la tinuta: vremea calda din ultimele zile mi-a permis sa renunt in sfarsit la ciorapi (pe care ii urasc!) si sa trec la cizme “de vara”. Sunt extrem de practice si le port foarte mult (cu rochii, fuste sau pantaloni scurti) primavara si toamna de fapt (vara doar daca se intampla sa fie neobisnuit de frig, yuck!), cand dimineata si seara este prea racoare pentru balerini sau sandale.

I was planning to name this post something like “Yey, no more tights!” or “Yey, it’s finally spring” (something including “yey” at any rate, as a sign of my joy that it’s finally sunny and warm).
In the end I chose the current title to mark the happy ending of a potentially tragic story related to my beloved accessory – the black Murano glass ring: at the end of the photo session for this post I dropped the ring in the parking lot and only realized it about 2 hours later; my mother (the innocent victim in charge of taking the photos) insisted that we go back for it and, amazingly enough, there it was, the poor guy, under the very same car under which it had fallen, still in pretty good shape!

Regarding my outfit: the warm weather during the last few days has enabled me to finally get rid of the tights (which I hate!) and wear my “summer” boots. They are extremely practical and I wear them a lot (with dresses, skirts and shorts) during spring and autumn in fact (summer – not so much), when the mornings and evenings are still too chilly for ballerinas or sandals. They really do keep you warm enough to allow for bare legs.
