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

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 

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 

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!

Flannels and pearls 

Hey, Lovies, Friday is almost here! 

As I mentioned earlier this week, my schedule is slowly getting back to normal, meaning I’ll be back to regular posting before you know it! 

I took some shots for you during my lunch break as it was a casual laid back day 🙂 

I’m wearing a Zara sweater on top of a basic flannel shirt from American Eagle, Versace denim (regular fit, dark wash), Guess riding boots and long faux pearl necklaces to complete the look. 

Hope everyone is having a great week and some plans for the weekend ;]

An office weekend

Greetings, Lovies! I hope everyone had a great weekend 🙂 I had to work both Saturday and Sunday so I just used the evenings to relax and watch some movies. Remember last month’s Coats entry? The hunt is over, darlings! After all, a woman is never too busy to shop! I scored some other cool things on sale but I’m absolutely in love with this gorgeous Zara trench coat 🙂

It’s the perfect basic coat as the solid grey-black mix makes every color and accessory pop. I took advantage of the fact that it was the weekend so I retired the high heels for my comfy Nine West riding boots from the Vitage America Collection (featured in September’s Vogue) and skinny jeans (low waist) from H&M. It was chilly outside so I added a scarf from Express with a little bling and my Guess bag for some color. 

Follow me on social media for daily updates and random posts (@SilviaMelange) and I hope everyone has an easy going week!
