Happy Saturday, Lovies!

No-jacket-weather in March is a very special gift in my corner of the world and it must be appreciated! My day was packed with chores (like this post if you hate adulting), but I managed to escape to the local park and take a few snaps for you:

Честита събота, Любовчета! 

Март-без-яке е рядко явление в нашият край на света, така че трябва да бъде отбелязано подобаващо! Денят ми беше изпълнен с досадни малки задължения (харесайте този пост ако не искате да сте отговорни възрастни хора!), но все пак успях да се измъкна до близкия парк и да направя няколко снимки. Детайли от дрехите и бижутата 🔝
С обич, Силвия Меланж

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. 

Follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates and occasional snapchat recipes and be on the lookout for a special Valentine’s Day at home recipe and some outfit inspiration.

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 

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 

Midweek shenanigans 

Wednesday night and your best friend who you haven’t seen (Skype doesn’t count) since 2013, is in town for two days. What do you do?! You get online and you find the most fabulous place having a “Ladies night” and get ready for an adventure. It’s the middle of the week and your head is up in your work projects so you need a plan of action:

 A quick shower upon arriving home, followed by a strong iced coffee can do miracles after even the roughest work days! After you are all pampered and refreshed you have a totally different outlook on life! 

The following tip never fails me: even if you are exhausted and you feel kinda down, dress up and before you know it, you will feel just as glamorous as you look!

 Go ahead, slip on that gorgeous JLo Collection dress, put your favorite almost-summer heels (in my case an open toe Guess stilettos), pair it up with a cute clutch (faux fur) and add some statement jewelry. 

My “theme” for this summer?! Flirt❣ Flirt with colors, lengths, fabrics and boys if you are single ;] But focus on the top part of my statement! 

Your cab’s here!

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange 


speaking of flirting



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
  

   

 
  
  

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!

In and out of the office

Happy Spring, Lovies! 

As the temperatures increase, so do our post office hours commitments. I like to chose my outfits wisely, combining a stylish-office and a-drink-after-work vibe in one look. It’s not always easy to pull off, so there’s nothing wrong with stuffing your clutch and a piece of statement jewelry in your work bag for later. Here’s the drill: before heading out switch all of your essentials from you purse to the clutch (keys, wallet, charger, lip gloss) and leave your bag at the office. Just make sure next day’s office outfit matches the bag you left the previous night ;]  Another tip from yours truly: always keep a pair of classic heels and flat shoes at the office, updating them based on the season of course! 

In last week’s shenanigans I’m wearing a cream Ralph Lauren top with skinny JBrand jeans, Guess ankle booties, Victoria’s Secret bow clutch and custom made heart shaped earrings. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the arrival of Spring as much as I am! I also want to say, I’m sorry for being absent all week but I’d rather be gone for a bit and then spend time writing a good post, than to give you, guys, random content or scheduled posts every few hours. On that note, if you miss me, feel free to follow me on Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates, lifestyle posts and to follow my 100 Happy Days journey. 

With Love, Silvia Mèlange
