Summer Pieces: Off-The-Shoulder

June 19, 2017

happy monday y'all! i hope you had a lovely weekend. we explore another side of the huge famous park we used to go to in our town: a train ride!

i have to say, this park is made for summer! not only you can row boats on the lakes (and yes, there is a little lake, too!) but you can also have a train ride operated by children and passengers can board at any of the five stations. we had a round trip through the park and it took us about half an hour. it cost 6€, but you can also take one station and cost cheaper than that. for a round trip, it lasted for a shorter time, but it is because the train (steam locomotive) went pretty fast! it is perfect to enjoy spring breeze before summer arrives this year.

we took a sunday afternoon stroll through the park after that while we ate our delicious ice creams. my man and his talent always amaze me with the photographs he made with his phone. everytime we pass a beautiful buildings or fountain, he made a beautiful picture out of it. it looks even better when it comes to landscape. i sometimes take the same exact thing, only with my dslr camera, but i often like it better from phone camera. now my dslr camera is officially only for other things but landscape.

but let's get back to the fashion, because this time i want to share one of my favorite spring outfit to you! one thing i have always loved about summer is the casual style that comes along with it. this season is all about adding detail, bright colors and texture to casual and comfortable clothing. with clothes that are just as fun and lovely, it’s no surprise that summer style has always been my favorite. and summer style means off-the-shoulder, because you just can go wrong with it! i could wear off-the-shoulder all summer long, from dress, top or blouse. i matched my off-the-shoulder blouse with a boyfriend and these cute black mule sandals. what do you think?

what is your favorite piece of clothes in summer? i wish you all a wonderful start into the week!

Picnic Date

June 12, 2017

hello, guys! i hope you had a wonderful weekend. mine was amazing, as you see, my man and i just had our very first wonderful picnic!

first of all, i need to tell you that i have always wanting to have a picnic. i actually bought the picnic utensils and stuff already since two or three years ago, but we never got the time for it because we still lived in another city and my man had to work abroad back then. this year, we want to catch up on everything so first things first, picnic!

there is nothing better than a park we always go to every weekend as our perfect picnic spot. if you follow me since day 1, i already told you few times that this park is freaking huge! the forecast for the weekend said 30° C so it was a great idea! it sounds like a lot, but we found a perfect place under a big tree and it was really comfortable. we didn't bring so many foods because we only want a brunch picnic so it should be a little lighter because we want to play badminton, too! and, we indeed were full!

for this picnic we had:
  1. baguette
  2. bacon and eggs
  3. picnic skewers (raspberry + mango + cucumber, sausage + eggs + cucumber)
  4. lemonade (ours was raspberry)
  5. homemade Meis-Frikadelle
  6. pretty drinking jars
  7. plates, cups, utensils, napkins
  8. picnic blanket and cooler bag
  9. instax

since this picnic was a success, i want to share some things you should keep in mind before having a picnic:

first. avoid messy things like chicken wings, or pizza. i know, they are delicious and you might think it is a perfect time to bring these foods you love, but chances are, it will either leave stains on your shirt or residue everywhere and it could end up pretty messy. picnic should be simple and you will want to spend more time to talk to the person you are with while remaining in touch with nature than cleaning up things, don't you?

second. bring the essentials. you are done with the foods, it is great. but do not forget the rest, guys! plates, drinking jars, utensils, napkins, blanket, or even a small garbage bag should be in the list! you might think it's easy to find trash can at a park. trust me, it's not! it could be annoying to have those things around in the end, and i don't think you want to take extra time for it.

third. check the weather! please, please, do this. make sure you check the weather forecast before making any final plans. rain could ruin your picnic (or maybe don't?!) but it's better to be prepared, right?

last but not least. bring the comfortable stuff. it can be a big blanket to sit on or when it gets colder, or pillows to lay on. make sure it is big enough so you are not the only one who use it (except you have a picnic by yourself). we actually did not bring these things, because we did not plan to stay for four hours in a row! we were in fact a lil tired at particular time, but we already decided before to take some rest after picnic so it was not a big deal for us!

i hope this post can help you guys preparing a picnic date as spring is in full bloom! i think picnic is a part of spring that everyone should try, it is just romantic! we really enjoyed it and we could stay longer that day but it sure was not our last picnic this year!

have a lovely week!

A Sunday in Spring

June 4, 2017

It has been almost a month since the last time i posted something here. I miss blogging already! It has been a week since the exams began and i needed to prepare for it everyday. I have so many things to write because May is a special month for me. It's like Christmas in Spring! But since the exam ends next week, i am gonna post something regularly again.

Sunday is a day of rest for both of us, a day where we can spend time together. I really look forward to every Sunday because it really has been busy weeks for me. Also, i have to learn so much the past days for my examination (and still for next week) and i can at least take a day off (or two!). 

We take a stroll in a big garden, it was a wonderful day. We could hear jazz music from afar and there was indeed a jazz concert, which was actually pretty nice. It was such a warm day! We ate ice cream and talked a lot about our future dreams. I love this kind of day, just two of us having fun the whole day. 

look at this! isn't it magnificent? the first time i saw it i was like..'look at that bird! no, duck! or wait..'
it looks like a bird, but at this park there are more ducks than birds but the color reminds me of.. a chicken?!

two of my favorite things: this man and ice cream!

found these shoes last week and i fell in love since! what a pretty color! matched with my denim jeans and my favorite yellow shirts, it becomes my new favorite casual Sunday outfit now!

What is your favorite thing to do on weekend? Tell me your story! Have a wonderful day!
