Summer dreams in February

Happy Wednesday, Lovies! 
It’s been a minute since I shared an outfit with you. To be completely honest, I felt kind of uninspired; when it’s -20°C I don’t care even if my shoes are different colors, as long as they keep me warm! 

I miss summer and I’m not the only one! Recently, one of my lovely readers told me she’d love to see me with some baby blue accents, as she is also bored with the endless black, grey and brown parade that seems to be an unofficial uniform here throughout the winter months. Well Maria (@freshcutsoflife), I haven’t found anything suiting yet, so here’s a sea themed look, I wore last weekend, the first day temperatures reached 9°C this year! 

Esprit sweater, H&M skinny jeans, Betty Barclay boots


While I was shooting in a small but gorgeous gallery in downtown Sofia (it was closed), I realized how much I miss sharing outfits with you so here’s a few extra shots from the coffee shop I was hanging at 😊

As we are expecting temperatures to steadily increase in the next few weeks, I dare saying I’ll be sharing more looks throughout the month of Love.

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 

My month in Instagram posts *June*

Hello, Lovies!

Welcome to your monthly Insta update! June was a very eventful month for me, so there’s a lot to catch you up on. 

I kicked off by celebrating my birthday. My s/o completely outdid himself this year! It all started in the morning when I found the gorgeous Zara dress I was eyeing a week prior, carefully placed on the freshly made bed, paired up with cute statement heels from Bershka. The day progressed with family time and more gifts, followed by a surprise party, attended by my dearest friends currently in the city❣I felt truly special and it was my best adult birthday so far!


The day after my birthday, I celebrated 5.5 year anniversary with my s/o which was another unforgettable evening! 

A week later I was surprised by a dear friend who flew from the U.S. to visit me. Highly recommend some girl time matched with fabulous outfits! 

This month I didn’t have to travel as much so I had the opportunity to cook more and invest some time into developing our YouTube channel, the link to which will be posted soon so stay tuned! 

The second part of the month was just as amazing. I got the oportunity to help and participate in Pride Bulgaria. Sadly, the LGBT community in Bulgaria still faces discrimination and challenges on daily bassis, so I believe it’s truly important to support events like Pride, regardless of your personal sexual preferences. Meeting the fabulous Elza Parini was just an added bonus! 


The following weekend I spent the day with my dad and spoiled him a little with Queen feat. Adam Lambert concert tickets for Father’s Day! 

I also got to experience virtual reality for a first time and that was quite surreal! 

Welcome to the month of pools, beaches, icy drinks and long warm nights! 

In July, I’ll be focusing on festival fashions and trends, the return of my weekly recipe section and the little things that make us smile! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily good vibes and updates.

Are you ready to have fun?! 

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange

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 🙂 

The path up to Nebet Tepe Hill


The view from the top where the fortress once stood


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?

First Spring look

Hey Lovies! 

It almost feels like Mother Nature skipped Spring and went straight to Summer this year. It’s 26° C today! I took full advantage of that and enjoyed my lunch out in the park. I also had some time to take a few shots of my outfit! I’m wearing a Miss Sixty tee and Soaked in Luxury denim skirt I’m obsessed with! I call it my chameleon skirt because the zippers are adjustable and it can go from pencil to a classic denim skirt in 3 seconds! Don’t forget the Giuseppe Zanotti blue suede shoes. The stripped shirt is from Mossimo as mornings are still chilly! 

   

 

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather and if you are still snowed in stay hopeful, warmer days are coming!

A rainy Thursday

Hey Lovies! Unfortunately, winter is not quite over yet. Today I had a lot of errands to do but I decided to take a few quick snaps on my way out. Comfy and warm are a priority when it comes to rainy Thursdays 🙂

 I’m wearing my favorite riding boots from Guess, Jessica Simpson wool coat (no one is happier for the return of the bell sleeves more than this gal!), basic Zara v-neck sweater, Gucci denim, Oscar shades and a spacious bag from Nine West. 

I hope everyone is getting ready for Spring and making the best out of the gloomy weather!

Grey fever 

Happy Friday, Lovies! 

I am obsessed with the all grey outfit trend that’s spreading like wild fire! I’m sure many of you notice the color more and more in Vogue and on the latest runways. “Grey is a boring color and it looks dull” – the most friquent argument against it I’m hearing. But as we see time and time again over the last few months, when styled right it’s fun and chic, perfect for an office look and casual street style. There are various ways to look fab in an all grey outfit! You can add a pop of color in shoes or accessories, pair it with statement jewelry, belt it and more. For today’s ootd, I chose to mix textures and add a splash of black here and there 🙂 

I’m wearing Express fishnet sweater with a basic black tank underneath, skinny denim from H&M (super skinny, low waist) and Guess riding boots.

Do you, Lovies, adore grey as much as I do? What are your favorite ways to style it up? Let me know in the comments! I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! 

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange
  
  
  
 
  
  

Spring shopping look

Greetings Lovies!

This past Saturday I finally had a few hours to dedicate to Spring shopping! I visited a new mall and I’m excited to share I found a few brands I thought I can only get online in my country.

There’s too much walking and fitting room hassle involved on major shopping days so I like to keep it simple; shoes that are easy to slip on and off, clothes that take minimum time to be put back on. Last Saturday I wore my trusted Forever21 cable-knit hoodie, my favorite denim from Miss Sixty (Eden Style) and tall chocolate brown Ugg (tall, Bailey button style) boots.

I decided to use the gorgeous view from the observation deck as a background for my pictures.

A casual weekend look

Hey Lovies! I had a crazy week and I’m so glad the weekend is finally here! It’s the end of January and that means two things: winter sales and Valentine’s Day shopping. I took a few pics for all of you on my way to the mall today 🙂

  
 

I’m wearing a berry colored cardigan from S. Oliver, basic black top from Zara, H&M (super skinny, low waist) denim and Guess ankle boots. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Saturday in Wonderland 

Happy Sunday, lovely readers! The temperatures are getting lower by the hour and I’m convinced  yesterday was the last sunny day of the year. I visited my favorite bridge and spent sometime in nature with my doggy 🙂 

Of course I took a few shots for you guys! I had to be quick because Tyra can’t sit still for long 🙂

 I’m wearing a deep blue Express sweater, basic jeans I ripped myself, Le Coq Sportif velcro shoes , layered necklaces from Zara and my absolute favorite Guess confidential bag 🙂 

If you are hosting your family for Christmas like I am, keep a close eye on the blog this week! I’ll be sharing Christmas meal recipes and we’ll cover everything from appetizers to deserts! 

Love, Silvia Mèlange

   
 Честита неделя, скъпи читатели! Температурите се понижават с всеки изминал час и мисля, че вчера беше последният слънчев ден за годината. Посетих любимият ми мост и се разходих с кучето сред природата. Разбира се, щракнах няколко бързи снимки, тъй като Тайра не е способна да седи на едно място зад кадър 🙂 Облечена съм с любим лек половер на Express, стари дънки, които разкъсах, Le Coq Sportif маратонки, наслоени верижки от Zara и любимата ми чанта Guess Confidential. 

Ако и вие ще сте домакин на цялото семейство тази Коледа, следете блога ми; тази седмица ще споделям с Вас всякакви идеи за коледни вкусотии от предястия до десерти! 

С обич, Силвия Меланж
