Sheer Dress: From Day to Night

Sheer Dress: From Day to Night

This trend can look really fancy and it can be hard to find a style that works for you. However, with the amount of sheer styles that are out there, there is definitely one for everyone! Recently, I found the one that is perfect for me and can be transformed to a dress for special occasions or something different that you can wear on daily basis.

It can also seem impossible to style this trend appropriately for the daytime, but there are plenty of sweet options. In this post, I’ll be showing you how I would style a dress with sheer details for both day at the office and a night out.

Usually, my style is not very feminine or office appropriate. I like to mix and match different styles together and this makes everything look casual and chic. That is why my first option for a daytime would be a sheer dress with a sweater on top so that it would look effortless but still more interesting. For a night out, you can simply wear this dress on a slip dress and look absolutely amazing. However, if you are like me, you can pair it with sneakers and jeans and feel fancy enough for a night out with friend.

Postcards from Venice

Postcards from Venice

With its historical canals, gondolas, and winding streets, Venice is considered one of the most romantic and visited cities in the world. Every corner you turn, you walk deeper into some real-life watercolor painting that a camera can never do justice. It’s like no other place I’ve ever been to.

We arrived there by train and it was really convenient for us since it costs only around 1,50 € and a train station was right next to our Airbnb. The whole city felt so welcoming and I find Venice a great place to get lost in.  However, the city is very expensive, especially on the main island. So if you want to save a little bit. I would suggest you to find less touristy places where the food is just as amazing as at those fancy restaurants on the main streets.

Venice is so beautiful that you can spend time strolling through the city seeing old buildings, churches, artists, and best of all, get a bit of people-watching because there are fashionistas everywhere! The island is small, so don’t worry, you can’t get that lost. Venice is my second favourite place from this trip (the most favourite was Cinque Terre) and I would definitely come back here.

Florence

Florence

If you love art, the amount of galleries in Florence can keep you busy for weeks and weeks. However, we had only couple of days here and it was really enough for us since this city was very touristy and it makes it harder to explore the Renaissance charm of this city. At this point of the trip I think I was the most tired so tourists started really annoy me.

I embrace the slow travel philosophy, instead of rushing to see every major site, just picking a few distinct places (and not always the most famous), and take my time to just soak in the atmosphere of any given place. After all, this is my vacation, and part of that is being physically and mentally, well-rested. Well, it doesn‘t always go like that but I try.

We really wanted to visit one particular park which is called Boboli Gardens. The park hosts centuries-old oak trees, sculptures, fountains and offers peaceful shelter from the warm Florentine sun. But our trip up to these gardens went really unsuccessful because we managed to pick one of the two days in the month when the park is closed… Apparently it is closed on the 1st and last Monday of each month. But instead of that, we had a success in the San Lorenzo Market which is actually comprised of two markets: an outdoor market selling souvenirs, clothing and leather products and indoor market for food. There I found my dream hat that I have been looking for three years!

Florence has it all and, while it is very touristy, don’t miss it!

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre

The region around the Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore  (that’s how the five villages are called) is actually a national park which is the reason why private traffic is forbidden and the villages not approachable by cars. The day in Cinque Terre was the best one so far and I would really come back here to stay for longer than a day.

The access to these villages is really easy by train because they run regularly every half an hour or even more often.  The best deal would be to buy a pass for a whole day so that you can hop in and hop off as many times as you want. It is really exciting to get out of the train without not knowing what you are going to see next. Every village has it’s charm but speaking just for myself, I’d say Manarola is my favorite village among the five. It is one of the busiest and the scenery is breathtaking. There you can find the most beautiful and probably most famous restaurant of Cinque Terre, called Nessun Dorma. It serves a dreamy view of the village but if you’re looking for something warm for dinner, this is not the right place

However, we had a totally different experience in the other one called Corniglia. To reach this village we had to climb like billion stairs but it was so worth it because we found the cutest little caffee with the best view to the sea and hills. Also the prices were way lower compared to other villages.

I am in Florance at the moment, so stay tuned for more travel diaries. Ciao!

Travel Diaries: Nice and Monaco

As some of you may know, I am in Italy at the moment. But before that we had a couple of days in France.  Our first stop was Nice and I must say, it is way bigger than I imagined it. The city itself is amazing except the fact that there are dog poops on every corner so you have to really watch your steps.

After two days in Nice we went to Monaco. MONACO. Monte Carlo is my future home for sure. It is so so clean and has the feeling of luxury that I can quickly get used to. But until I save 8 800 000 euros, Vilnius is fine. See you in Italy! 🙂

It is finally the start of our vacation and I’m super excited to leave tomorrow. We are going to visit south of France and also Italy during this trip. As it is raining all day and I can already feel autumnal vibes, it will be nice to have two more weeks of summer. So be prepared for loads of pictures from sunny locations. See you!

Kimono: From Summer to Autumn

Kimonos: From Summer to Autumn Kimonos: From Summer to Autumn Kimonos: From Summer to Autumn

Is it a robe? Nooo. But if you won’t be careful, it can easily look like one. With its exotic origins, a woman wearing a kimono can’t help but look mysterious. Not to mention, it’s a great piece to transition into autumn with.

Basic T-shirts, sneakers/sandals and denim pieces are my fave pairings. Longer length kimonos are perfect for a fancy night out and a day-dressing for fashionista. Here’s some inspiration for me and you because I’m still hunting for a perfect one.

Sunglasses – la belle boutique

I really thought I knew pretty much all boutique stores in the city but clearly I was wrong. My friend Greta told me about this new boutique in Vilnius and mentioned that she found her dream pair of shoes there that only cost 18 €. Say whaat? I had to see it by myself…

So I visited the place and what can I say, it’s true. You can find lots of trendy items and shoes for only 20 €. I understand that the quality of all these clothing pieces is not the best but it is so worth to try.

Couple of things from this boutique store I managed to find on aliexpress.com and the price difference is almost nothing. So, unless you want to wait weeks and weeks for your order, la belle boutique can be a great alternative, where you can try on clothes, shoes, accessories and have a great customer service.

They don’t have an online store but you can find them in Vilnius and Kaunas. Check out their Instagram and Facebook.

The Ultimate Flea Market Experience

The Ultimate Flea Market Experience

The Ultimate Flea Market Experience

A Flea Market at „Vasaros Terasa“ is a weekly market where everybody can participate. And because I have plenty of clothes that I am never gonna wear, I decided to go and try my luck. Selling at flea markets can be a good (and fairly easy) source of extra income. Of cource, you have to know something before you go, otherwise you’ll end up like me – with -2,5 € in my pocket (ha).

What kind of goods can you find/sell? Almost Everything. And whether it’s new or used it’s bargain priced. Let yourself be surprised and don’t limit yourself with expectations if you go as a buyer. There is a far more beautiful, vintage world to be discovered out there.

What sells best at flea markets:

  • Accessories (if you made it by yourself it’s even better!);
  • Books;
  • Interior pieces;
  • Plus size clothing (or something at least bigger than XS/S).

If we had to credit a group of people for bringing back the bodysuit it would be the Kardashians, that’s for sure. As I have never actually owned one, it was interesting to see what’s all the fuss about. Even though it can be really flattering, I’m still not the biggest fan of it.

Pros and Cons:

+ It’s essential for smooth layering.

+ It achieves a slimming effect.

Let’s just keep it short and sweet: bathrooms. No one needs that much of an effort to put a piece of clothing on.
