Last beach day with H&M

It’s my last day by the beach for this year, so I decided to wear my favorite piece of the Summer. 

I’m totally obsessed with this kimono style dress I got from H&M in the beginning of the season. The color patterns and the length allow it to be worn as a dress, with shorts, leggings or as a beach cover up. The unusual design, combined with the bright colors won’t go out of style for years to come-that’s a promise! For this look, I combined it with Guess flip flops, a beach tote from Victoria’s Secret and Oakley shades. 



My Summer by the Bulgarian seaside was absolutely amazing and I want to take this time to thank everyone who helped me create memories and discover new places❣

Until next year, Silvia Mèlange 

    
           

       Последен плажен ден с H&M



Днес е последният ми плажен ден за годината. Реших, че би било уместно да приключа морската си ваканция с любимата ми дреха за лятото.

Обожавам роклята стил “кимоно” на която попаднах в H&M Витошка в началото на сезона.

 Цветовете и дължината позволяват да се носи като рокля, след плаж, с шорти и дори с клин при по-хладно време. Свежия дизайн и страхотния флирт на цветовете я прави абсолютно универсална и ви гарантирам, че няма да излезе от мода с години! Днес я комбинирах с чехли от Guess, плажна чанта от Victoria’s Secret и очила Oakley. 

Споделям и снимки от разходката ми из Пловдив от май тази година, когато не беше достатъчно топло за кимоното, но нямах търпение да я нося! 

Тази година посетих българското Черноморие за първи път от 2008 година. Преживяването беше страхотно и искам да благодаря на всички, които по един или друг начин станаха част от това страхотно приключение! 

До нови срещи! Силвия Меланж

Post-beach look 

Happy Monday, Lovies! 

I know I disappeared again, but I’ve been lazy at the beach. Yes, that is my excuse! Below is a quick post beach look, just so you guys don’t feel like I completely forgot you! I’m wearing a handmade top from a local Indian market, Guess denim and flip flops and my favorite beach tote from Victoria’s Secret. The swimsuit top is from Swim Systems collection. 

I shot a tone of outfits and locations for you guys! Tomorrow is my last day by the seaside so I’ll catch you up on everything in the upcoming weeks! Just because Summer is almost over, doesn’t mean you can’t start planning next year’s adventures early! 

Love, Silvia Mèlange 

                         След плаж 

Честит понеделник, Любовчета! 

Знам, че пак зачезнах, но истината е че мързелувам на плажа! Да, това е извинението ми! Реших да споделя няколко бързи снимки след плаж, за да не се чувствате забравени. Облечена съм с ръчно изработен топ от местен индийски магазин, дънкови панталонки и чехли от Guess, комбинирани с любимата ми плажна чанта от Victoria’s Secret. Горнището на банския е от Swim Systems. 

Снимах много тоалети и страхотни места, които ще споделя с вас в следващите седмици. Това, че лятото свършва не означава, че не може да започнете да планирате ваканцията си за догодина! 

С любов, Силвия Меланж 

Old Town Nessebar *Fashion Explorations*

Rainy days happen. Besides, sun through clouds is the perfect light for a fashion blogger! 

Sure, I’d love to just be lazy at the beach but instead of complaining and watching movies all day, I decided to grab an umbrella and get lost in the ancient streets of Old Town Nessebar. The small island, now connected to the main land, is in the UNESCO World Heritage sites list, housing over 3 millennia of history. It’s an honor to just be able to walk on these roads and it provides many perfect backdrops for photos 😉 For today’s session, I’m using the the Old Bishopic St. Sofia church, one of the oldest Eastern-Orthodox churches in the world. 

I’m wearing a sea themed Angelo Marani top, Sisley-Benetton kaki shorts, gold wedges from Ralph Lauren and a Coach bag to complete the look. 

As most of you know by now, I love to travel and ancient cities and ruins are my weakness. When exploring places like this, it’s important to wear comfortable and reliable shoes. I prefer flats but these wedges are my feet’s bffs and current summer favorites! 

Stay tuned as there’s a special Travel entry covering the town and its fascinating history and landscapes! If you can’t wait, follow me on Instagtam and snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates. 

How’s your summer going? Did you visit a hidden gem you think I should know about? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share what do you think of this look?

               Несебър-стария град

              *Стилни пътешествия*



Дъждът е нещо неизбежно. Плюс това слънце през облаци е перфектната светлина за модния блогър! 

Да, бих предпочела да се излежавам на плажа, но вместо това грабнах чадъра и излязох с намерението да се загубя сред древните улици. Малкият остров, с над 3 хилядолетна история е в листа на Юнеско за световни древни селища, карайки те да се чувстваш специален само, защото стъпваш по улиците му. Сред безбройните красиви изгледи, избрах църквата Св. София, една от най-старите православно християнски църкви на света. 

Облечена съм с топ от моряшката колекция на Angelo Marani, панталонки от колаборацията на Benetton и Sisley, обувки Ralph Lauren, завършвайки визията с чанта Coach. 

Както вероятно сте забелязали, обожавам да пътувам и древните селища са ми слабост. Когато посещавате подобни места, удобните обувки са ключови. Обикновено предпочитам плоски обувки, но тези платформи са най-добрите приятели на краката ми това лято! 

Абонирайте се за блога ми, следва статия фокусирана върху Несебър и богата история и гледки. Ако сте нетърпеливи, последвайте ме в инстаграм и снапчат (@SilviaMelange) за всекидневни постове. 

Как прекарвате вашето лято? Някакви тайни места, които смятате, че трябва да посетя? Оставете ми коментар или изкажете вашето мнение за днешната ми визия 💋

С обич, Силвия Меланж

Beach Monday 

Few things measure up to the feeling of waking up on a Monday, knowing the toughest decision you have to make today is which beach to go to and where to have dinner! Not trying to brag but yours truly is on a much needed vacation, exploring the Bulgarian seaside. I haven’t visited since 2007 so I have a lot of catching up to do! 

One of my favorite things about going to the beach, besides going, is getting dressed for the walk there. I miss the days when I lived a block away from the beach and my wardrobe was consistent of 80% coverups, beach dresses and over 50 pairs of flip flops. I still manage to include coverups and see-through dresses and blouses in my urban wardrobe with the inevitable black top underneath but it’s just not the same.  

Today I paired up one of my favorite pieces from Macy’s with shorts from Zara, Guess flip-flops and shades from Oakley. 


I’m not going to reveal exact details of my location. I’ll just say it’s a beach in Old Town Nessebar only locals know about ;] Empty beach and clean water- what more can you want?! 
Love from the Black Sea, Silvia Mèlange 

                   Плажен понеделник




Малко неща могат да бъдат сравнени с чувството да се събудиш в понеделник сутрин, знаейки че най-трудното решение за деня ще бъде къде да отидеш на плаж и къде да вечеряш! 

Не се опитвам да се хваля, но моя милост е на заслужена ваканция, наслаждавайки се на българското Черноморие. Не съм посещавала от 2007 г. така че имам много да наваксвам! 

Едно от любимите ми неща (освен самото плажуване), е избора на облекло за разходката до пясъка. Липсват ми дните, когато живеех на една пряка от плажа и гардеробът ми се състоеше от около 80% плажни шалове, рокли и над 50 чифта чехли. Все още успявам да вмъкна прозиращи блузи и материи в градският ми гардероб, но не е същото благодарение на неизменния черен потник отдолу. 

Днес комбинирах една от любимите ми плажни туники, флорален десен от Macy’s, с къси черни шорти Zara, джапанки от Guess и очила Oakley. 

Няма да разкривам детайли от точната ми локация. Само ще споделя, че е таен плаж в старата част на Несебър, за който знаят шепа местни хора. Пространство и чиста вода, какво друго е нужно?! 

С Любов от Черноморието, Силвия Меланж 

Stylish travels 

Happy Tuesday- Shoesday, Lovies! 

As I promised, I’ll keep you up to date on my adventures frequently this month! So far, my seaside trip has been absolutely epic! I finally have decent wifi and enough peace and quiet to share a travel outfit with you. When you know it’s gonna be a long trip, it’s important to be comfortable. Style doesn’t always mean walking 10 cm off the ground with perfect hair and make up. As seen below, sometimes a tinted moisturizer, hair in a bun and a basic look is where the charm is! 

This is me after going to bed at 1 am, waking up at 330 am to catch a train at 5 am, spent a day exploring Burgas on foot (a detailed entry on the city coming soon), and switched two buses to get to my final destination- the beach! 

Outfit details: 

Jean Pascale cardigan, Zara basic top, Guess denim and flip-flops and Michael Kors bag


Jewelry details:

My Name Necklace, LiveLokai bracelet and mini pearl earrings from Swan

More to come very soon, so stay tuned! Add me on snapchat and Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for sneak peaks and daily updates!

Love, Silvia Mèlange 
P.S. If you made it till the end, here’s a snap of me on the 5 am train. This is the fastest speed it would go 🙀

imperfections are totally okay!! Mornings suck!

Office morning to a Saturday morning: the walk of shame

Saturday morning, 8 am and yours truly is third in line at Starbucks.. In Friday morning’s casual office look! The only difference between me and the two ladies in front- I didn’t look like it! No heels over my shoulder, no smudged mascara. Ignoring the voice of shame in my head, I was kinda proud of myself. 

The naked truth is, I wasn’t going planing on a crazy night. The original plan was a double date at the end of a long week. Somehow it turned into a quick visit to my favorite bar. It wasn’t one drink and two hours later, I found myself posing in the middle of the street on the way to my favorite club. 

top: Mango denim: Zara shoes: Bianco footwear bag: Guess

I had so much fun, ended up dancing the night away and for a first time in a while, I closed the club down at 7 something in the morning 😂

I thought my walk of shame is leaving the club at such an hour in yesterday morning’s attire. Then I realized, I don’t blend in with the parade of pale faces in tight dresses and messy hair! I managed to leave the house looking perfectly acceptable for a casual Friday at the office, partying all night and still looking like a workaholic on Saturday morning! 

 On the way to Starbucks I took another pic, just to have a base of comparasent:

The secret to my look: a good concealer and the right tinted moisturizer, combined with a waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Don’t forget to drink 200 ml of water for every drink you have throughout the night! 

Cheers, Silvia Mèlange 

A to JaZZ festival: the return of the maxi dress

Festivals of all sorts have been dominating the last few summers as the It thing to do. I know I can’t be the only one who is sick and tired of denim cut offs and a faded *insert 70’s band name here* tee. If you plan on spending the day and/or night on a blanket in the grass and sipping wine from a plastic cup, a cocktail dress and heels ain’t gonna cut it. 

Move over cocktail slip on , there’s a new dress in town! 

They say maxi dresses and skirts are making a comeback this year since they dominated the Spring runways. But did they ever really leave? From the 90’s when maxi dresses became every beach babe’s must-have till now, dominating the street style scene. The perfect length is around the ankles or gently touching the floor, as middies can be unflattering. You can’t go wrong with a daring slit or a flirty back, in a bright statement color or a gentle pastel. My personal obsession; colors and patterns mixed at random but matching perfectly. 

This last weekend I had a blast at the A to JaZZ Festival here in Sofia. I wore a gorgeous Charlotte Russe maxi dress with rose gold Nine West sandals and earrings, Esprit bag and my favorite name necklace in white gold. 

Put your hair up in a bun, relax and enjoy the music. Clean, bright or gypsy chic, the maxi dress is here to stay! 

Love, Silvia Mèlange 

Urban Spring

Happy Monday, Lovies!

 I’m extatic to announce that Friday was the last “cold” Spring day! Summer is officially en route and before you know it, all the gorgeous green hues on the trees will turn yellow from the heat. I couldn’t let all that beauty go waste, so today’s outfit pics were shot in my favorite city garden here in Sofia!

I took advantage of the chilly weather to wear my favorite A-symmetrical light knit sweater from Forever21’s newly opened store here in Sofia, paired up with skinny low waist denim from H&M, Sisley thick heel ankle boots and a Nine West bag. Spiced up my look with my favorite name necklace in white gold, a choker from H&M and Swarovski earrings for a trendy finish. 


I hope everyone is having a productive week and looking forward to some fresh Summer looks coming your way 💋
Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange 

Coachella dreamin’

TGIF, Lovies!

Unfortunately, I won’t be making it to Coachella this year. However lately I’m noticing my style is getting influenced by the whole festival/chill/gypsy/hippy vibe the fashion world has going on. The flirt with the 90’s trends with just a hint of the 60’s is absolutely fabulous! I cannot wait to see what The September Issue has in store but I hope it’s just as refreshing.

 I even managed to come up with a look that’s appropriate for casual Friday! I fell in love with this pattern last month, meaning my top is custom made. Spicing it up with my favorite pair of distressed denim from JBrand (I added a few extras on my own), comfy flats from Bershka and a Dior inspired bag I found a few years ago. I completed my look with layered necklaces from Zara and custom made vintage silver bracelets. 

I can’t wait until Summer festivals in my area begin!! Until then, it’s Coachella dreamin’ baby!

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange
  

   

 
  
  

Denim Spring

Happy Friday, Lovies! 

I had a half day at work so I used the extra time to enjoy this gorgeous Spring day and of course took a few shots for you 🙂

It all started last year but this season denim is back full force! It’s one of the most comfortable, universal materials out there and I love styling up a casual denim look with a little silky twist. Today I’m wearing a Gap denim jacket, Esprit hoodie and bag, Miss 60 denim skirt I have from my teens, Triuph stalkings for a silky feel and comfy American Eagle flats. I have a handmade silk Striessing scarf in my bun and I’m wearing H&M shades I got because of the frames 😂 Jewelry is my favorite My Name Necklace from white gold and basic earnings from Zara. 

Be on the look out for a tutorial on how to do a “Scarf bun” coming up on the blog soon! I hope everyone is going to have an epic weekend!!
