(RO) Gradina Verona este printre locurile mele favorite din Bucuresti. Este cocktailul perfect de liniste, verdeata, liane, pietris, masute si scaune de poveste, la care se adauga un super meniu de bauturi si gustari proaspete - si toate acestea in inima orasului. Este oaza de liniste perfecta unde sa te retragi dupa o zi lunga la serviciu, dupa o promenada de sfarsit de saptamana prin urbe sau chiar dupa o sesiune de lectura la filiala librariei Carturesti cu acelasi nume...Era sa uit, este locul unde sa mergi si pentru un mic dejun prelungit, alaturi de cea mai buna prietena. Timpul trece pe nesimtite aici si nici nu realizezi cand s-a facut ora 13. Pentru ca imi place atat de mult vibe-ul locului si felul in care se rasfrange aici lumina printre frunzele copacilor, va dati seama ca nu am ratat ocazia de a realiza cateva fotografii cu tinuta relaxata pe care am purtat-o in acea dimineata calduroasa a unei sambate de iulie. Am construit-o pornind de la sandalele bleumarin cu talpa de sfoara, foarte comode, pe care le-am gasit la un pret foarte mic. Gasiti sub fotografii un link cu diverse modele asemanatoare. Am mers pe aceeasi linie "budget" si in rest: pantalonii sunt luati dintr-un outlet (vezi link mai sus), iar topul l-am gasit iarna trecuta la soldarile de la Zara. Tot ansamblul este inspirat dintr-o brosura Avon mai veche, ce mi-a picat in mana acum cativa ani, unde gasisem fotografia unei tipe care purta un outfit foarte asemenator, accesorizat insa cu o palarie din paie. Eu am lasat palaria acasa, dar am purtat geanta mea cosulet preferata, pe care o stiti de aici. Fac eu cumva si gasesc inspiratie in orice si peste tot - observ femeie la metrou, in drum spre birou, in magazin, la coada, imi vin idei cand citesc reviste, postari pe Facebook sau cand urmaresc conturile de Instagram ale celor mai cool fete (in special Jeanne Damas si Sabina Socol). Este un exercitiu minunat si imi vine usor sa imi imbunatatesc si rafinez stilul atunci cand gasesc frumosul oriunde pot. Tu de unde te inspiri?

(EN)  The Verona Garden is among my favorite spots in Bucharest. It is the perfect cocktail of tranquility, greenery, lianas, gravel, tables and stools, plus a super menu of fresh drinks and snacks - all these in the heart of the city. It is the perfect tranquility oasis where you can find yourself after a long day at work, after a weekend promenade through the city or even after a reading session at the Carturesti bookstore's branch of the same name ... How could I forget? It is also the place to go to for a long breakfast, along with your best friend. Time passes unbelievably quickly here and you do not realize when the clock gets 13 o'clock. Because I love the vibe of this place so much as well as the way in which the light falls among the trees leaves, you surely imagine that I did not miss the opportunity to take a few photos of the relaxed outfit that I wore on that hot Saturday early July morning. I composed my outfit starting from the navy wedge sandals (very comfortable ones!), which I bought at a very small price. Find a link with various similar patterns below the photos. I went on the same "on a budget" line with the rest of the items: the pants are bought from an outlet (see link above) and the top comes from the last winter's sales at Zara. The whole ensemble is inspired from an older Avon Cosmetics brochure that had had dropped my hand a few years ago, in which I had found a photo of a lady wearing a very similar outfit, yet accessorized with a straw hat. I left my hat at home, but I wore my favorite basketbag that you already saw here. I do somehow find inspiration in everything and everywhere - I observe women by the subway, on their way to the office, at the shop, in the line, I come up with ideas when reading magazines or posts on Facebook, or even when watching Instagram accounts of the best IT girls (especially Jeanne Damas and Sabina Socol). It's a great exercise and it's easy for me to improve and refine my style when I find beauty wherever I can. Where do you get inspired?
