Romantic mood

blue flower dress

It appears the castle I visited last week left me in a romantic mood still, not that I complain, Romanticism is in my style, especially when it comes to photography. I feel this dress is appropriate for both casual day wear and also for a lovely date, just add some heels and some sparkly jewelry and you're good. I couldn't miss the sunset and it's golden light, it's just the perfect time to take photos, no matter the season. 
It could have been perfect if it wasn't for the screaming kids around and loads of people walking around, but since we live in a big city, finding a secluded place is difficult, so this will do. 
However, I hope you love the pictures and let's start the new week with fresh forces!

Places to see: Corvin Castle

 I was so excited for this one day trip, because I wanted to visit the Corvin Castle from Hunedoara, Romania, for a veeery long time, but since I don't own a car, getting there can be a bit difficult, the city appears to be quite secluded.
 If you follow me since the beginning of times, you know that I am fan of everything that is aristocratic, castles, old mansions and such. See here my article featuring Peles Castle from Sinaia if you want to convince yourself.

 After 3 hours, we finally arrived in town andguess what? It started raining! Surprisingly, that didn't let me down, by the time we finished visiting the interior, the rain stopped, but on the bright side, we entered the castle for free! A family walked towards us and they probably saw my excitement while shooting some photos outside and gave us an invitation that granted us free access, which was very nice of them! 
So while I was taking dreamy princess-like photos around there, trying to find spots less crowded by tourists, my dress was filled with mud because of the rain, of course, and I had sand in my shoes just like in true medieval times, right? 
Even so, I was happy I got to visit the castle, it's quite lovely but not very opulent, of course, there is no such thing during Medieval times, everything was much more austere, if you ever have a chance to visit Romania, be sure to check out this place, it's filled with history.

Two small treasures: a skirt and a vintage bracelet

silk green skirt4

I'm such a romantic, aren't I? I couldn't help but to embrace my feminine style and create another classic/chic/romantic outfit. 
This silky maxi skirt is one of my favorite items I own and how else could I pair it than with a off the shoulder blouse and golden jewelry! I scored this gorgeous colorful vintage bracelet from a vintage fair back in Bucharest, I fell in love with it at first sight, and even though spent a small fortune on it, I don't regret it, it is definitely an item to treasure!
What do you think of this look?
