Casual Friday at the mall 

TGIF, Lovies! As some of you count down the minutes until the clock hits 5 pm, this lucky gal has the day off. What better to do when everyone is working, than to catch up on one’s fall shopping?! I’m at the mall today, slowly but surely checking things off my list. 

The summer holidays are almost over, most people are already back to work, which is perfect for browsing stores and taking your sweet time in the dressing room.  Now, what does one do when the mall is almost empty?! I don’t know about you, I love taking silly pics!  

When I go shopping-shopping, one of my main rules is to wear comfy, easy to take on and off clothes and minimum accessories. Nobody wants to risk ruining a statement earring while trying on countless sweaters! For today I just slipped into an oversized flannel shirt from the male section of Pull&Bear, Banana Republic leggings, Geox flats and s.Oliver bag in deep chocolate brown. I couldn’t leave the house without my favorite name necklace and my new obsession- classic pandora bracelet in vintage silver tone. 

Who else is enjoying a summer-ish September? What is on your fall shopping list? As per usual, I want to know everything in the comments below!

                     Петък в мола 

Честит петък, Любовчета! 

Докато някои от вас броят минутите до заветният 5 следобед, аз се наслаждавам на свободен ден. Какво по-подходящо от пазар докато всички са на работа? Летните дни са към своя край, което прави мола почти празен и удобен за наваксване на есенното пазаруване, в съчетание с фотосесия изпълнена със забавни кадри! 

Едно от основните ми правила при сериозен шопинг: удобни дрехи и минимални аксесоари. Днес съм облечена с широка риза от мъжката секция на Pull&Bear, клин от Banana Republic, плоски сребърни обувки от Geox и чанта s.Oliver в дълбок шоколадов нюанс. Никой не иска да оплита дълги обици докато пробва пуловер след пуловер! Все пак не пропуснах да сложа любимата ми верижка с името ми и класическа гривна от Пандора в нюанс състарено сребро.

Кой друг може да се похвали с топло септемврийско време? Какво има във вашият шопинг лист тази есен? Както винаги, искам да знам всичко в коментарите!! 

С обич, Силвия Меланж

Bright colors and ancient ruins

Happy Monday, Lovies! 

Yours truly had a four day weekend last week! I went on a little get away in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It’s the 4th oldest city in the world so we did a lot of exploring! I’ll be sharing my experience and restaurant recommendations this week, so be on the lookout for that. I did a lot of traveling this last month but I also had some free time to walk around, so I’ll be catching you up on that as well! 

Old town Plovdiv is a truly magical place but Nebet Tepe Hill took my breath away! It’s the remains of an ancient castle (over 7000 years old!), and it reveals a gorgeous panorama of the modern part of the city. I chose to use it as a back drop for my outfit pics for you guys! 

We had a lot of climbing to do and most of the roads in the old part of town are the authentic or reconstructed Roman stone roads. So I did something every fashion blogger does, whether they admit it or not- I wore my comfy orthopedic Geox flats for the long explorations, and only brought my heels for the outfit shots! Originally I was only going to post the pics shot for the blog, but Plovdiv’s scenery is so beautiful, I feel like I would be unfair to you guys if I don’t share some random favorites 🙂

You can see why this is my favorite spot in the city 🙂 

Now some pics and details from my look:

I wore a kimono inspired dress, a flawless color blend from H&M, Banana republic leggings, Guess (Confidential cross body bag in rose pink), and Oakley shades. My heels are from Esprit and the adorable silver flats are Geox, as mentioned above. Details are the classic Lokai bracelet, Swarovski earrings and a custom made name necklace. 


For more shots from the city, follow my Instagram and snapchat story (@SilviaMelange) and keep an eye on the blog! I wish all of you a fabulous week and let me know in the comments what you think of my pics 🙂 Are you into History, legends and ancient civilizations? What’s your favorite part of History? I’d love to have a discussion and see how many of you are travel junkies like moi?
Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange
