Unusual weather in Romania

Unusual weather in Romania

Romania has experienced some unusual hot days in November. Temperatures have reaches 20 degrees Celsius in some parts in southern Romania, something quite unique in a region when November hits, it’s winter time.

Far more interesting is that just 200 km north, Transfagarasan and TransAlpine roads that go over the Carpathians at over 2000 meters experienced temperatures of -10 degree celsius and a ton of snow during that same period.

It’s maybe a sign that Romanians need to prepare them self for this season by keeping at least some light fleece sweaters in the back of their car on when they travel, since the temperature difference can be quite high in such a short distance.

Fortunately, here in Romania there are a lot of shops that have traditional wool sweaters that are warm and cozy to wear during the winter period. However, if just go some km south, that type of clothing might be to hot for a November day.

That’s why, as mentioned, it’s easier to have a small bag with you with some change clothes for this type of weather. Choose a long sleeve blouse with some cargo or chino pants for a relaxing day in town, but if the weather is getting worse, having a jacket or a sweater can save the day.

Also, if you are going for a mountain trip, get some proper gear for this. Some hiking boots for women with a strong sole and ankle grip, some pants that are cozy and warming, but that can easily dry in a night, a ski jacket and a long sweater to keep your body on a stable temperature.

And most of all, get some proper winter tires on your car, so you don’t get stuck on a  swirling road in the mountains for the night, maybe some car chains, a shovel and some food and water, just in case.

You never know when you’ll need them.

Sports shorts are flattering because they look good on any type of silhouette, no matter if you are thin, have an athletic build or a curvy body.

What’s so amazing about sports shorts is that they come in various, bright colors. Black can be slimming, but a little bit of color will add spice to your outfits. Having cute, colorful clothes will make you feel excited and happy.

We think that sports shorts are versatile. Of course, you can’t wear them on formal events, but they can be the perfect transition from gym to a casual look.

Capri leggings

Capri leggings

Capri leggings usually end mid-calf or two to four inches above your ankles. If you don’t know how to wear them and you are about to give up on them, maybe you are right. This length has a terrible reputation because they can make your legs look thick and short. Having this said, we suggest you not abandon your capri leggings in the closet, instead learn how to style them.

Capri leggings can make you look slim, chic and modern. You just need to find out which ones are flattering your silhouette and also it’s important to pair them with the right items. But this season the overall look of Capri leggings is going to be trendy because they are geeky and stylish. We think that these leggings are also sexy because they are reveling a little bit of skin and the ankle bone. They look great paired with ankle boots, flats or sandals with straps. During summer days, capri leggings can keep you cooler, but they are also a great choice for autumn and spring.

If you want to overcome the effect of short legs when you wear Capri leggings then you need to wear high heels. Pairing wedges or pumps with Capri leggings is something that really works. You will have a pin-up, retro vibe perfect for a cocktail party. For tall women, we recommend ballerina flats, canvas sneakers, and sandals. We think that ballerina flats are the classic choice that is more appropriate for office looks. Sandals with straps are great during summer, while sneakers combined with capri leggings are perfect for a beach, casual outfit.

Our favorite way to wear Capri leggings is with a short dress or a tunic. This is a trendy look perfect for women of all ages. For a more elegant approach, add to your look a statement necklace or other feminine jewelry. A big necklace will make your outfit hipper.

Despite Capri leggings are well known for leg shortening characteristic, if you know how to wear them you can have beautiful, stylish, modern and feminine looks. What you really want is to have a balanced outfit and to achieve a flattering silhouette.

Mountain walks

Mountain walks

Here in Romania, we are blessed to have a lot of mountain ranges and some spectacular views.

Almost 30 % of country is covered in mountains, so from late March all the way to November, you can outside and walk on the mountain and have some fun and make some sport at the same time.

That’s why when I’ve got an invitation to go hiking in Ireland, I wasn’t quite keen on getting there. We do have some spectacular scenery here in Romania, what can I see there in Ireland ?

I did however wanted to get to Dublin in ages, so I did agree on a walking holiday in Ireland and purchased myself some tickets for Dublin.

Since Ryanair come to Romania, going from Dublin to Bucharest was easier and cheaper then ever, so I booked a flight and got myself on the capital of Ireland.

And of course, when I got there, it started raining. No surprise there, Ireland and UK are known for their rainy days. It didn’t bother me, since I arrived somewhere late in the afternoon, I just went for my hotel and got out to the pub and poured me some Guinness.

The next day, after a short walk around Dublin and two meetings with some friends in Dublin, I did meet my friend in Dublin, which explained me that we are going in the Wicklow Mountains for a three day trip. So I’ve listed and prepared myself for a 3 day trip… with more Guinness.

A bad decision, since on the next day we were leaving at 8 AM, not the perfect hour for a person that had some drinks a night before. But with some water and two aspirins, I got on my feet and started walking.

We were walking near the Liffey River and started climbing and climbing until we got on a high plateu, with Liffey River somewhere in the valley, which was quite impressive.

But the most amazing thing about Ireland does have to be the green. Everything there is always green, a lot of grass and some amazing level differences.

In those three days we’ve been on the Maulin and Djouce, coming back near the Powerscourt Waterfall and going back to Old Long Hill.

Was I impressed ? A bit. Still not the mountain ranges in Europe, but if you want to go and just explore the mountain and walk, Ireland mountain are quite nice.

Would I come again ? Probably. I do want to go on the highest peak in Ireland, just to have put the check mark on my mountain list. I do have to get on the south west part, so I’ll probably need more than a week for that.

But I thinks it’s worth it.

How to accessorize one shoulder dress

How to accessorize one shoulder dress

The most sensual way to show off your shoulders this season

One shoulder dresses have been very popular lately. We spotted them to many of our favorite bloggers and we can say that it’s a pity to not have a dress like this in our closet. It’s just the perfect item for the moments when we are eager to have a more feminine and sexy look.

Usually, one shoulder dress is the chosen item especially for proms or weddings.

Yet, despite the beauty of this dress style, it is hard to accessorize! That’s why before thinking about wearing a dress like this during summer there are a few things to keep in mind about accessorizing and styling it in order to pull it off glamorously.

How to accessorize one shoulder dress:

  • Don’t wear a necklace with one shoulder dress! Why? Because the neckline of the dress rises higher on the sleeve side of the dress and it makes it difficult to select a necklace that lays properly without getting lost in the dress fabric.
  • Instead, you can make a statement with earrings. Dangly earrings can be a really attractive choice with one shoulder dress. You can also choose to wear rings and bracelets, but don’t go too far! One elegant bracelet will be more than enough! For a super glamorous look you can try to style the dress with an arm cuff.
  • The best bag type for this dress is certainly a clutch, because any other bag that presents a shoulder strap can interrupt the long lines and beautiful cut of the dress. Plus, a clutch, will be just perfect to carry your essentials and will not distract from the rest of the outfit.
  • When wearing an one shoulder dress you should have a flawless hairstyle. Opt for a tight chignon for a sophisticated look or for a soft bun for a sweeter look. Don’t keep your hair down because it will hide your shoulder.
