Twirl, baby, twirl

 Dress / Rochie - H&M || Minaudière / Gentuta - Zara || Sandals / Sandale - Zara

As I was telling you yesterday, summer is not over yet around here and moreover, I shot some cute little outfits during our holiday in Sanya last week. But to tell you first a little something about Sanya, it is the southernmost city in the Hainan Island, China. It is renowned for its tropical climate and it is very often called "China's Florida" or "China's Hawaii". :) We were supposed to spent 7 days there, but we had to leave one day earlier due to a typhoon which was going to hit the island exactly on Friday, when we were supposed to fly back to Shanghai. Reason for which we preferred to leave earlier, even though I would have like to soak up some more sun. You know, it's never enough :)

We stayed at Sanya Marriott Hotel, Dadonghai Bay and since we had such a great time there I decided to mention it on my blog as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful, many of them were able to speak English (yay to that!!), the room was spacious and beautiful, with a balcony and an ocean view, the food was also very good and there are 3 or 4 different restaurants within this resort. There is also a lovely lounge where you can enjoy a breathtaking view and some drinks, but they also have a beautiful garden, which we didn't get the chance to experience anymore.
Another thing which we absolutely loved were the pools (a big and a small one at the higher floor, a big one and one for children, at the lower floor) which have a great view towards the beach. We liked the pools and the pool area so much in fact that we decided to go there everyday and we didn't feel like going to the beach. The beach at the hotel was full of rocks, so I don't know how safe it was for swimming, whereas the public beach with sand was about 10 min (1km) away from us, but as we had such amazing beaches in Okinawa we decided to enjoy the silence at the pool. :) We had there everything we needed so we couldn't be bothered to leave the resort :)).

So anyway, we took these photos one evening when we went to enjoy some cocktails at the Lounge Bar, together with a great sunset and view. I couldn't wait to wear this dress from H&M and I think it fitted the location perfectly, probably even better than I could have ever imagined it. :) I paired this fuchsia dress with my golden sandals, which are in fact the only heeled ones I took on holiday with me, and my colourful minaudière, both from Zara.

What do you think of this look? I still have 2 or 3 summer dresses to show you and after that I hope I'll start shooting some fall looks, so bare with me :))

Hugs,
A.

P.S: I wasn't taking any selfies with the phone in my hand, don't worry, I just discovered the remote control to my camera!  Oh happy day! :D

It's all about the pearls..

PEarls 1

Hello hello!

Our vacation is over (for now 😀) and even though I prepared a few outfits featuring some adorable summer dresses while I was there, I can't deny the fact that we are passed mid-September and I can't wait to create some proper fall outfits. The thing is that we still have around 30 Degrees Celsius around here, so wearing coats / sweaters and whatnot is pretty difficult. But I can always get inspired until then and I actually found some amazing pieces which I want to share with you today. 

There are many trends that I like this season, but the pearl embellishment is probably my favourite one. I love everything about embedded pieces and I think that pearls make each item look cuter, more sophisticated and more feminine. So yes, this autumn is all about clothing items which have pearls on them and we can already see them in every store. I made a selection of my favourite ones and, as you can see, they are present on everything, from blouses to jeans, shoes, sweaters, dresses, and even accessories. It's up to you to choose what suits you best!

The direct links to each piece are under the photos, as usual. :) Which is your favourite item? Which is your favourite trend this season?

Have a lovely new week,
A.

Kimono Madness

 Kimono / Kimono - HERE / AICI || Top / Top - H&M || Shorts / Pantaloni scurti - H&M || 
Slides / Slapi - Zara

Yes, yes, the floral kimono madness continues. As if it wasn't enough that I already had a pink and a blue one, I had to get THIS ONE too. To be honest, this latter one is exactly like the one from Zara I fell in love with during spring, but I just couldn't justify paying 100euros for such a piece and now I'm glad I didn't because I found this one HERE for a quarter of the price. 

The print is exactly the same, the fabric is soft, flowy and light, it has two side slits and it's just so beautiful! The colors are also super pretty and perfect for spring / summer and I'm glad it got to me right before going on holiday because after getting some sunburns during our first day spent in the sun, THIS was the perfect choice for exploring the city. I decided to wear it with a pair of white high-waisted shorts and a pink / nude top, together with some red details. And in case you are wondering what are those red spots on my legs and feet, I tell you they are (totally unequal, random, crazy) sunburns which put me through pain for some days even though I used SPF30. This never happened to me before and I don't understand how and why did it happen now, but oh well..I'm still healing after it and from now on I will be even more careful about it. 

But to go back to this lovely KIMONO, the outfit that I chose to wear it with is obviously a very holiday-appropriate one, but I think it's very easy to wear it with jeans, trousers and even over skirts or dress and it will look amazing . Check it out HERE and stock up for the next spring / summer, I have a feeling these kimonos will still be on trend. :)

Gotta run pack my bags now, cause tomorrow we leave again. :) So don't forget to follow me on Instagram (@andyandra) to see my daily posts.

Happy weekend everyone!

Polkadots & turquoise water

Dress / Rochie - HERE / AICI || Hat / Palarie - H&M || Sungasses / Ochelari de soare - Stradivarius 

Hey hey, we just got back from Okinawa, where we spent a short four-day vacation, but which was totally amazing. I fell in love with Japan ever since we saw Tokyo, but this place made me love this country even more. Not to mention that the two islands we saw during our time there, Zamami and Aka, were pure paradise! Turquoise water, corals which enabled us to snorkel the whole day (hence the sunburns :)) ),  empty beaches, lush vegetation, very few tourists, peace and quiet, just the way we like it :)

And since on Friday we go somewhere else, I already "took care" of some of the photos and here I am showing you this gorgeous DRESS I wore on our second day there. As I already got some pretty bad sunburns during the first day, this dress was the perfect choice to cover me from (almost) head to toe. :) Also, it is made of a light, flowy fabric, so it didn't keep me hot at all. Besides this, I am a big sucker for maxi dresses and this one caught my attention because I knew it would be perfect for the holiday and it look great on the beach.
You can find it HERE in green as well, and even if this year's beach days are over for some of you, this dress is very versatile and it can be worn also on other occasions and in different styles, and I am sure that this print will not go out of style too soon. In fact, one of this autumn's trends are the polkadots. :)

How would you wear this DRESS?

Have a lovely week,
A.
