It is pretty obvious by now that I cannot keep my initial posting schedule (Monday and Thursday) as I used to do, but no worries I am still preparing new OOTDs for you every week ;) Somehow the days are passing very fast around here and I usually find myself during evenings thinking that I also have to prepare some blogging material but I am just too tired to go beyond this thought and actually do it :)) Well, the day has finally come and I decided to use this Tuesday and show you a new look, which is definitely one of my favourites lately and the photos, ahh I just love them.

Last Saturday we started discovering this huge city by going to its most famous tourist destinations - The Bund. The Bund is the waterfront area in central Shanghai, an area along the river which faces the modern skyscrapers in the Pudong District. Actually, we firstly went to see the Shanghai Tower in the Pudong District, which is the second tallest building in the world (after Burj Khalifa). The Shanghai Tower has however the highest viewpoint in the world, at the 121 floor and the fastest elevator - 20.5 m/s. Luckily, we got there quite early and so we didn't have to wait in the line :) The view of the city from above is simply breathtaking and if you ever come to Shanghai this is definitely a place you have to go to. In the afternoon we got on the other side of the river and finally got to see the Bund. The Bund houses 52 amazing historical buildings in various architectural styles, among which banks, hotels, designer shops, consulates and it used to house even the Masonic Club. These buildings are facing the modern skyscrapers in the financial centre of the Pudong District and the contrast between the two architectural styles is outstanding. This is, at least now, my favourite part of the city, but you know there is still so much left to discover :D.

To tell you a few words about my outfit now, on Friday evening I received some new bits and pieces among which this adorableeee FAUX-FUR which I totally fell in love with. It is literally the softest faux-fur ever and it kept me warm the whole day, even though the wind was blowing pretty heavily. The black-white-grey combo is super pretty and versatile and the patchwork design makes is so unique. I wore it this time with a white shirt and a pair of ripped jeans, to which I added some black boots and bag and a white hat, keeping everything quite simple and casual but leaving the fur stand out. However, I am sure it will look great also with skirts, dresses, culottes or other types of pants :) You can check it out HERE and I also found a similar one for you which can be seen HERE.

How would you wear this faux-fur?

Have a lovely week,

Hey cuties, what is new with you?! The days are passing by quite fast for me as I am still trying to accommodate with everything, I walk a lot everyday trying to discover these places, I began to go to the gym again (you know, new years resolutions and such :D) and I also have to do things around the house. I can't believe it is almost the weekend, but yay for that because I hope we'll be able to see more of this city and also to take some new photos. If you're not following me on Instagram, you should totally do it because that is my favourite social media program and therefore it's where I post most of the photos (@andyandra).

On another matter, pink is the colour to which I always seem to go back and I love it every time. I ordered this lovely sweater before Christmas, along with the burgundy dress you saw in my previous post and I was super excited to get it. Well, the sweater turned out to be slightly different than the picture, meaning that it was not that oversized and the neckline was a bit tighter, but the fabric was still really soft and the colour - just gorgeous. The sweater can also be worn off the shoulders but, as I said, it might be a bit tight. Warm, pretty and perfect for winter, I decided to wear it over a dress because I thought the combination with the stars would look great and so it did :)
Finally, I added my new OTK boots which I simply adore, and that is for 2 reasons: one, they are really long and tight and two, they are made of a velvety material, which we all know was the hit of this season. Last but not least, I also added my new Guess bag for even more color. :)

Sadly, the sweater is currently out of stock, but you can find a similar one HERE.

What do you think of this look?

Have a lovely weekend,
A.

Hey hey hey loves! Happy New Year to you all! I am finally back with my first post and outfit for 2017, hurray! First of all, my absence is well motivated as I've been at home until Monday, where I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my family, so I didn't really feel like writing on the blog. You get it, right? :) After that I've been on the road a lot and the big news for 2017 is that we moved to Shanghai three days ago and we are still in the process of adapting to a new home, a new (huge) city, a new culture and continent. :)

However, I couldn't wait to show you these photos I took with my lovely mom ❤ about two weeks ago, when everything was frozen and snowy and it looked so dreamy, just like a fairytale :) Of course didn't want to miss the occasion and even if it was super cold I wanted to capture this beautiful wine red dress in the prettiest scenery possible. I am not a bit fan of bodycon dresses but I pushed myself to try something new and this one is just wonderful and perfect for winter. The dress has a turtleneck, long sleeves and a midi-length which are three big pluses, while the soft fabric is knitted and hugs the body perfectly. For this look, I decided to wear it with black opaque tights and a pair of high ankle boots to which I added a colourful blanket scarf which kept me warmer and my big black
tote bag.

As 2017 is the year of changes, I also changed my hair color (as you can see) and I gave up my eternal one tone blonde hair for a ombre grey/blonde hair. :)

What is new this year for you? Let me know what you think of this outfit :)

Have a perfect weekend ❤
Love, A.

The lace-up skirt & metallic jacket

Jacket / Geaca - HERE / AICI || Sweater / Pulover - C&A || Skirt / Fusta - HERE / AICI || Boots / Cizme - Primark || Bag / Geanta - Zara 

Hey hey, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with magical moments spent with your dear ones. I know I did and I wish it could have lasted longer, but no worries the holiday continues this week as well :D Even if I am on holiday I still wanted to be active around here and post two new outfits every week. I might have not kept my regular schedule but I managed to do as I told myself I would, yuhuu.

I shot this outfit with my dear friend at the beginning of December and I keep thinking how fast time flies. However, I postponed this one because I had other things to show you first, plus that a break from all the grey looks I had last month was quite welcomed :) I created this look around the skirt and jacket, which I imagined to wear together ever since I saw them on the website. They were both a big crush of mine and I liked them even more after receiving the package. The skirt is made out of a very soft, faux suede fabric and it has a zipper at the back. What I love mostly about it is the front side which has two pockets and a lacing detail and they make it so special and pretty. You can find it HERE.

The jacket was on my wishlist ever since I saw a similar one at Zara and I'm so happy I chose this one. The faux leather material is soft and not very thick, so the jacket is very appropriate for spring, summer and autumn. I would say the jacket is cropped and the details on it are very well made. This time I decided to wear it with a striped thick sweater and a pair of over the knee boots but I think it can be worn in so many other styles and the metallic color makes it a true statement piece (click HERE).

How would you wear the jacket / the skirt?

Have a lovely week,
Andra
