Summer Boots Fantasy

Do not let the title fool you, it's as misleading as any other title we've ever concocted for this here blog. The following article does involve boots tho, but not the kind you'd be willing to wear during summer, at least not in the non-forgiving hell that is our weather. Ever heard of the Frye boots? Maybe you haven't, but sure enough every other American woman did. That's because Frye boots are known for being that perfect pair of boots you can wear under your jeans, over your jeans, with a dress or a skirt. All in all, that kind of boot that goes with everything and that makes any outfit get that boho look. Sure, Romania may not be the best place for a boho look but the Hatter doesn't really care about that matter. On the other hand a pair of Frye boots goes for more than $200, which for a young doctor is living in an undeveloped Eastern European country is a freakin fortune, so acquiring a pair is out of the question. Enter Target and its marvelous offers. Long story short, here's the latest addition to the boot closet: Mossimo Katherine Leather Engineer Boots. Real leather, a harness and a square toe, all for $49.99? Count me in baby. Who cares it's summer?

Romania nu este genul de tara in care sa porti cizme vara. Desigur, asta nu a impiedicat pe nimeni pana acum (desi inca putin si vom cere interzicerea prin lege a cizmelor crosetate, nu pentru ca ar fi complet inestetice ci doar pentru ca sunt pretutindeni). Dar daca Palarierul nu poate purta cizme vara macar poate sa cumpere. Motiv pentru care tocmai a achizitionat o pereche miraculoasa de cizme de la Target. Piele, bot patrat si model ham pentru doar $50, ha! (de ce traim noi in mijlocul lui Nicaieri?). O alta motivatie ar fi asemanarea dubioasa cu faimoasele cizme Frye, care ne-ar depasi considerabil bugetul dar care au acea miraculoasa calitate de a se potrivi cu absolut orice. Yay Target!

Layer Perfect

Poate ca este aproape vara, dar Opening Ceremony ma face sa imi doresc temperaturi cu 20 de grade mai putin. Si deoarece preturile lor nu sunt pentru buzunarele noastre putem cel putin sa ne inspiram din nebunia lor de straturi si cromatica. Preferata mea - fusta/rochia? cu tiv asimetric.

In all seriousness, Opening Ceremony really knows how to layer.

Perfect Spring Rain

I've always loved the way the air smells after a spring rain. I wish we had room fresheners smelling that way.
As I've mentioned before, I managed to get a lovely Cheap Monday maxi dress and since then I've been basically living in it. I like it because it's extremely long - I actually have to hold it off the ground with a belt and it has a very casual upper part. Plus I love the little skull details on the back, it's cute as a button!
Wearing it with a Principles knitted cardigan, canvas sneakers, thrifted belt and a Bershka top. Lately I've been overdoing the loose look, with summer around the corner I can't even stand the idea of tight clothing.
