Summertime Sadness

Hi guys,

Clap along if you think this summer weather is crappy! Yesterday, it went from scorching heat to pouring rain in less than an hour...and it totally caught me off guard as I was leaving the supermarket, without an umbrella. It wasn't fun, I'm telling you!

Anyway, in 2 weeks time I'll be leaving for Croatia, and I sure hope this weird weather won't ruin my vacation.

Moving forward to today's outfit, I'll start by sharing a little story! If you've been reading this blog, you know that I have a huge obsession with skirts and dresses. About 3 years ago I lost a lot of weight, and I had to change almost my entire wardrobe. Most of my dresses from that period don't fit me anymore (they are up to even 2 sizes too large). But since I love them so much, I just had to find ways to adapt them to my current size and wardrobe. I chose not to alter them, but instead I decided to add other items (shirts, sweaters, tops) in order to transform them and give them a creative edge. This outfit is part of a little project that I called "Re-dress". The top part of the dress is too large, so I added this cute shirt which I tied around the waist. The result? A fun print mixing with a subtle retro vibe that I absolutely adore! Let me know if you like it! In the following period I'll be showing you more examples (some of which I've already posted on the blog), as part of this project.

Have a lovely week!

  1. Imi plac foarte mult fotografiile ♡! Tie iti sta minunat cu aceasta rochie-fusta, iar ideea de a reinventa si readapta hainele vechi imi place la nebunie si o adopt si eu foarte des :)

  2. Imi place ideea, chiar arata super bine si pare ca porti o fusta :D
    Foarte frumos e si clutch-ul :)
    Te pup!

  3. I've missed you!!! :)

    Esti foarte tare, Mamalina, zau asa! Ideea de a adapta hainele unei noi siluete e creativa si, totodata, pragmatica! Daca ai idei pentru a purta si hainele care au ramas mici :)), tare m-as bucura sa mi le spui!
    Imi place tinuta mult de tot - constat in mod repetat ca ai un stil vestimentar pe care eu il apreciez foarte mult, cu care rezonez in totalitate!

    Te pupacesc cu drag!
