The girl and the wardrobe

Hi guys,

Going through some old photos, I came across one in which my Mom was wearing a stunning knit pleated midi skirt with a turtleneck, looking ever so beautiful. That style resonated with me so much and I felt this immediate urge to re-create it for the blog. Instead of the turtleneck I used a v-neck sweater with a shirt under it. The neck style of the sweater and the black bow do match the look I was going for, and the two elements also allowed me to play with prints and patterns, which is what I love to do when I get to work with layers.

I was thrilled with the results and Alex did a wonderful job again with the photography (I'm really thankful!). I'm planning to select a few more of my Mom's photos and try to re-create some more of her looks. She has always been my inspiration! I remember being drawn to her closet when I was a kid, fascinated by how she would organize her clothes (by color), by her collection of scarves and the smell of perfume when I'd open the door to that magical place. I would try on all her clothes and parade in the living room, to the amusement of my Dad... Sweet, sweet memories.

I hope you guys will enjoy the post! It really touched a sweet spot for me :)!

Many hugs!

  2. Doamne, eu nu mi-am dat seama pana acum ca te-ai tuns! Ce schimbare! :) Iti sta foarte bine, felicitari pentru curaj! :*
    Si eu am facut pasul asta ieri :)
    Tinuta e superba, esti o maestra in a combina hainele de toamna, earthy tones :)
    Stii ca la gradinita se alegeau mereu 4 fetite care sa joace rolul celor 4 anotimpuri? Tu ai fi perfecta pentru Toamna, a treia fiica a anului. Mereu faci cele mai tari combinatii in acest anotimp si esti o continua sursa de inspiratie pentru mine. Te pup!

    1. Daaaa,m-am tuns :). Am vazut ca si tu te-ai tuns, abia astept sa citesc mai multe despre "motivul" acestei schimbari. Multumesc mult pentru cuvintele frumoase!!! Te pup!

  3. OMG the photos are so beautiful! I love the colors and they way you fit into the scenery! :D The outfit is perfect and the colors are great ;)

  4. Ca si Dorina nici eu nu am observat pana acum ca te-ai tuns :)) a trebuit sa ma uit foarte, foarte atent ca sa fiu sigura ca vad bine :D te rog sa ne mai rasfeti cu astfel de poze si tinute, te rog! esti superba :*

  5. Ce-mi faci tu mie, Mamalina? Cand cred ca am gasit si eu cate o combinatie wow, apari tu cu asa ceva si imi iei ochii (si mintile). Superb, superb, superb! Ti-am mai zis de nu stiu cate ori si o sa ma repet de cate ori va fi nevoie, te pricepi de minuneeee la combinatii de culori, texturi si printuri! Imi place la nebunie tot ce porti si cum porti si pozele sunt minunate (felicitari, Alex!)

    Iti sta super tunsa asa, nici eu nu observasem, e asa usor sa porti un bob fals ca nici nu mai stiu ce sa cred cateodata:))

    Te pup si mai vreau tinute de toamna atat de superbe! Stiu sigur ca le porti zilnic dar as vrea sa le si vad :D

    1. Ceeeee draguta esti!!!!! Multumesc tare mult! Tu esti la randul tau o inspiratie pentru mine, ai un simt estetic deosebit si asa un suflet curat!! Te pup cu muuuult drag!

  6. cat este de frumoasa fustita!
    o tinuta minunata!


Thank you all for your sweet comments! They mean the world! Hugs!
