Chic picnic

How's your weekend going so far? We are having a wonderful weather here, just the perfect time to go out for a barbecue or a picnic, which is what we did the other day!
I won't take credit for the idea, but I will take credit for all the appetizers I made, I was so proud of that! You know that moment when an idea is planted in your mind and you just want to do everything you can to make the best of it? Well, that is what I did; I searched for picnic food recipes, I stressed myself to find the cutest picnic basket - I bought the last one, I think it was waiting for me! 
So, yes, I can turn the smallest thing into something grand, or a big mess if I'm loosing my patience or I give in to frustration. 

It was fun and creative and that is something I really enjoy! I made finger food of cheese, cherry tomatoes and light ham, we had smoked salmon with cream cheese appetizers, some blue cheese, mozzarella, slices of avocado, olives, almonds and fruits and I also made a wrap with lettuce, sliced cheese and ham, this was so creamy and delicious! We ate everything in 5 minutes and then we sat on the blanket until the sun was gone. 
I guess it could've been more relaxing if the park was less crowded with people, but next time, we'll make it even more grand and we'll invite friends and make it fun!
 I hope you enjoy the photos! 

 How do you guys feel about picnics?

Casual Bohemian Girl

As casual as one can be, right? Actually the term "casual" is not even used in it's simple form anymore as far as I can tell. You have "smart-casual", then "casual-chic", or "active-casual", so the basic "casual" term is used for...a look composed of skinny jeans, a T-shirt and some flat shoes, or maybe some sneakers because those can be more comfortable?  Boy, I used to be this plain in highschool; back then you couldn't take me out of my Converse and my grunge T-shirts -  there was no femininity in me!
Fast-forward a few years later and here I am wearing what I like to call now a "casual" outfit. Nothing too fancy, a simple denim skirt, a pair of comfy, but colorful, flat shoes and a blouse that still has all that bohemian, romantic vibe I love - naturally, it had to be worn off shoulders, because I am obsessed with that.
 Tonight I'll be watching "Alice through the Looking Glass" - I caaaan't wait, I heard so many good things about this film and of course I'm all about Alice's charming adventures ever since I was a kid. 

What are your plans for the weekend?

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!
