Summer Culottes


My favorite piece of  garment is without any doubt lately “the culottes”. Funny how just some months ago I did not know or used this term in English; I knew it very well in Romanian and as I was a child I had many pairs of culottes and they were my preferred thing to wear.

They are a clear proof that the fashion is never fully new, just a modern interpretation of already existing trends.

I have culottes in so many colors, materials and lengths: black, navy blue, whites, nude, long or just above the ankles (my favorites). The ones in this post are from Mango, purchase on sale (77% off !!!!!) and are made of linen and silk and I think they are perfect for a summer day or night outfit.

Do you like culottes? What type of culottes you already own or would like to have?

P.S. I will write from now my posts both in English and in Romanian because I have many readers from Romania and I think it is more convenient for them to read in their native language, including here my parents.

Piesa mea preferata de îmbrăcăminte este fără nici o îndoială, în ultimul timp, “the culottes”. Ciudat cum în urmă cu doar câteva luni nu stiam si nici nu foloseam acest termen în limba engleză; il stiam foarte bine în limba romana (“fusta-pantalon”) și in timpul copilariei am avut multe fuste-pantalon si erau preferatele mele.

Fusta-pantalon e o dovadă clară că moda nu este complet noua, doar o interpretare modernă a tendințelor deja existente.

Am fuste-pantalon in multe culori, materiale si lungimi: negru, bleumarin, alb, bej, lungi, scurte sau chiar deasupra gleznelor (favorite mele). In acest post, fusta-pantalon e de la Mango, cumpărata on sale (77% off!!) si este din in si matase, perfect pentru o zi sau seara de vara.
Iti place fusta-pantalon si tie? Ce tip ai deja sau ai dori sa iti cumperi?

P.S. Voi scrie de acum toate posturile, atât în ​​limba engleză și în limba română pentru că am mulți cititori din România și cred că este mult mai convenabil pentru ei să citească în limba maternă, ​​inclusiv pentru părinții mei. :)

Do you know your UVA-s and UVB-s?

There is so much information on all sources of media about sunscreen creams. Here are a few simple pointers that I easily remember and use:

  • There are 2 types of sun’s ultraviolet rays: UVA (long-wave) and UVB (short-wave) – UVA causing sking Aging and UVB causing sunBurn; so you need sunblock products that protect for both types of radiations.
  • For face, including lips, I use creams that have a protecting factor of minimum 40 (SPF40); SPF40 means that just 1/40 of the sun’s UV radiation can reach the skin.
  • For body I use a minimum protection factor of 30 (SPF30).
  • If you don’t use enough product on your skin, the SPF factor is actually reduced. The thumb rule is 1-shot glass for the body and a big coin size equivalent of product for the face and neck.
  • When wearing sunglasses, is preferred to use those that have plastic or wood frames and polarized lenses; metallic frames will attract the sun radiation and cause damaged in those areas.
  • Wearing hats provides heat protection, but be aware that regular textiles give sun protection of maximum SPF10.
  • If for the body I do not have a preferred sunblock product, for the face I have tried so so so many until I found the right ones – I truly recommend La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF50+ Fluid Ultra-Light or Benefit Dream Screen SPF45. The single reason why I slightly prefer the Benefit cream is that the skin is less skinny using it compared to the La Roche-Posay.

I love so much the Benefit sunblock cream, that I got a sample package to try out 6 of their best Radiant Skincare products – I will let you know how good or not they are… :) So far, I can tell you that they smell and feel divine on the skin.


Enjoy the sun, use SPF and keep hydrated!

Today I am wearing Zara


Do you have those days when you open the closet and you have no idea what to wear? Nothing really appeals to you, nothing is really appropriate. Well, I almost never have those kind of days, but today, hmmm…total confusion. I always dress myself asking “Who I will be today?”. Today I am “comfy Adriana” wearing 2-years old Zara skirt and top and the most comfortable high shoes I have in my possession.
