Blue Summer *post beach*

Happy Wednesday, Lovies! 
Considering the Spring-ish temperatures in most of Europe, I’m happy to announce I am currently soaking vitamin D like a boss! 

The secret I’ve been teasing you about is actually pretty major and although it’s a positive thing, it’s also very overwhelming. I got the opportunity to chill by the beach for the next 24 hours. God knows I needed some time away to meditate and recharge my batteries and if you a loyal follower, you know I prefer doing that by the water! 

After a day of being hypnotized by water, I decided to take a few snaps of myself with a tripod. It’s not my best work but considering I don’t usually take pictures by myself, I think I did a good job!  ☺️

I love how peaceful my face is here as the second pic was the first one taken. Meditation, self reflection and quiet time are very important for one’s mental state. 

My Super Hero pose 😂😂


I’m wearing a handmade dress from a local Indian market. It’s one of my favorite beach pieces as it can be worn as a dress or as a skirt. I have the same one in white and red and I actually regret not getting a few other colors combos.  
Tomorrow will be a day off-off social media that is.  I believe it’s really important to spend some time in nature, away from technology and social media. I’m kind of excited right now but I know I’ll be itching to check my instagram or Snapchat something cool by lunch time 😂 
I hope you are all enjoying your day and only focus on the good vibes!

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!

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.

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 

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!

Last days of Summer

I always dread coming back to Sofia when September strikes; it’s foggy, rainy and at least 10 degrees colder than where I’m coming from. This year I’m in luck- it’s between 25 and 32 C all month so far! That gives me a chance to do little getaways in nature during the weekends before the leaves change colors. In case you haven’t noticed, I absolutely love nature scenery as a background in my outfit pics 🙂 Scrow down for outfit details and soak as much vitamin D as you can before Winter comes around!

Никога не се вълнувам от връщането ми в София в началото на септември.  Мъгливо, дъждовно и с поне 10 градуса по-студено от където се връщам. Тази година извадих късмет, цял месец температурите са по 25-32 градуса. Използвам всеки почивен ден сред природата преди листата да опадат. Ако не сте забелязали, обичам да използвам природни пейзажи в снимките ми. Детайли по визията са описани под първата снимка. Не забравяйте да поемете всичкия витамин Д от слънцето преди да настъпи зимата!

С любов, Силвия Меланж

Tsari Mali Grad

IMG_8265Last Sunday I went on a little getaway with my significant other. We visited Belchin; a small town in western Bulgaria, about 40 minutes out of Sofia. The village stands since Roman times and back then it was called Tsari Mali Grad. There’s a cabin lift that takes you to the top of St. Vlas hill, revealing a breathtaking panorama of the whole town.

Church entrance and a plan how it used to look like in the 4th century

First we visited a gorgeous little church St. Petka that was built in the 15-th century. It’s a very unique place due to the fact that it’s foundation is the remains from a 4-th century Christian church. Right next to it with three towers still standing, is the Tsari Mali fortress built between 2-nd and 4-th century. You can walk through the grounds and even look down from the towers, daydreaming of how it once was. The main part is turned into a museum full of coins, ceramic dishes and weapons discovered on the grounds, some of which date all the way back to 4-th century. The whole place is surrounded by nature. I strongly recommend taking a stroll on the Eco path next to the fortress. Enjoying the pure air and spending some time around the centuries old forests. It’s an amazing place for picnics, meditation and reconnecting with nature. There’s also a very nice mineral pool and spa complex just a few miles down in town if you are in a mood to spoil yourself. With population of less than 500 people, the locals resemble one huge, happy family. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful (of course we got lost!) and eager to let us sample local organic fruits and vegetables and various kinds of homemade cheese. We had an amazing day and came back refreshed and inspired for the new week, glad we discovered another amazing place somewhere in the world! Don’t forget to ask which road to take on your way back so you can check out the 22 stork nests, homes of about 100 white storks annually. To the Bulgarian people storks are like shooting stars so make a wish if you see one! XO, Silvia Mèlange

Inside the fortress

Миналата неделя, с моят любим решихме да избягаме от града за ден. Посетихме Белчин- малко селце в западна България, на около 40 минути от София. Селцето съществува от римски времена, когато е носело името Цари Мали Град. Кабинков лифт ни качва на хълма Св. Влас, разкривайки невероятна панорама на градчето. Първо посетихме църквата Св. Петка, построена през 15-ти век. Уникално място поради факта, че основите й датират от 4-ти век, също от църква. Точно до нея с три от кулите все още използваеми, е крепостта Цари Мали, строена между втори и четвърти век. Човек може да се разходи до наблюдателницата и да си помечтае как е било някога. Част от крепостта е превърната в музей, помещаващ монети, керамични съдове и оръжия датиращи около четвърти век. Цялото място е заобиколено от природа! Препоръчвам разходка по Еко пътеката,за да се насладите на вековни гори и чист въздух. Страхотно място е за пикник, медитация или за приятно прекарване сред природата. На няколко километра надолу има страхотен спа център с минерални басейни ако сте в настроение да се поглезите. С население по-малко от 500 души, местните са дружелюбни и отзивчиви (разбира се, че се загубихме) и предлагат домашни органични плодове и зеленчуци и домашно сирене. Прекарахме си страхотно и се върнахме освежени и вдъхновени за новата седмица, щастливи че открихме още едно невероятно местенце на света! На тръгване не забравяйте да попитате по кой път да тръгнете, за да видите 22-те гнезда, подслоняващи около 100 бели щъркела годишно! За българите щъркелите са като падащи звезди, така че си намислете желание ако ги видите! С обич, Силвия
