Good morning lovelies! Happy Saturday. I had promised a post about my road trip visit to Charleston but after having some technical difficulties with my pictures, I decided to share this outfit first instead. Charleston will come up in a few days, I promise.

I am also very excited to share this outfit. To be specific this H&M dress. The moment I saw it, I fell in love. It was everything I had been looking for in a while and in a perfect price range. Midi length, lady like style, polka dot like print, open back, slim on the body yet flowy. I love pieces that have an element of surprise. The front of the dress is perfectly demure. But just when you think you saw everything, I turn around and surprise, open back! Sexy no? I opted for a lacy bra à la Carrie Bradwshaw, but if you are lucky and can wear open back clothes without a bra, go right ahead. Nothing like showing off shoulders and back on a woman's body, right?

My lovely satin ankle strap heels are from the website Heels.com and I bought them just over half a year ago. They are such a gem and pair perfectly with pants and dresses/skirts. They are quite sexy and make the outfit young looking. Add a pair of hoops to it, a messy bun and the look is done (rhyme not intended ehehhe): demure yet sexy. Make sure to check out my Instagram account for a short Boomerang video of this look to see how beautifully the dress moves. 

Hope you liked this look. Thanks for your comments. 

Ciao!

East Coast Road Trip to Savannah - Off the Sholder Top & Cutoffs

Shorts OneTeaspoon, off the sholder top bought in Mexico (no name), scarf Winners, earrings unknown

Howdy friends! Summer is slowly coming to an end and I have still not finished sharing with you outfits and pictures of my road trip through East Coast USA. I guess in a way I’m procrastinating so that I get to enjoy and reminisce of my travels for a longer period of time.
Next stop on the road trip was Savannah, Georgia. Well, after Miami we stopped for a day at the Jacksonville Beach but continued straight to Savannah that same evening. I didn’t really take any pictures of Jacksonville Beach. It was just a beach town, but compared to everything we saw before, Jacksonville Beach kind of wasn’t as exciting. Oh, how easily we get spoiled, right?
Savannah was quite a surprise for me. I didn’t research it at all before going. I just heard that it is a must see city on the east coast. I chose to be surprised, and surprised I was.
Being of Easter European descent and having lived in Canada half of my life, this was my very first exposure to a real Southern (USA) city and culture. My only exposure before this was through Hollywood, ahahah.
We arrived late in the evening and I was first mesmerized by the long alleyway streets. The trees are so old and big, it was beautiful to see them. The streets were dimly lit but that added to their beauty. The trees are all covered with (what I learned while visiting swamps in New Orleans) Spanish moss which creates these eerie shadows on the streets. It’s quite a sight. While riding around the town just to check it out before heading off to bed, we stumbled upon the waterfront and I was very pleasantly surprised. I have a thing for cobblestone streets and old, old buildings. Even if they look a little dungy, the thought of the history behind them makes them very endearing to me.
The next day we spent riding our bikes around town, taking trolley rides to learn a bit of history of this beautiful old town, ate some very heavy southern comfort food and just enjoyed the sights. It was a wonderful time and if you are visiting east coast, do make sure to stop and visit this gem of East Coast. What I particularly loved was that there were no sky scrapers. The city is full of Suares and roundabout intersections. It is extremely pedestrian friendly. It is hot and humid, so make sure to dress accordingly. To behonest, I’m still quite puzzled how the local food can be so heavy considering such hot climate. What I also found interesting was how many different types of churches I saw. I have never seen more churches in one city then I did in Savannah. One interesting fact, if you watched and loved the movie Forrest Gump, you may like to know that you can see the bench used in the filming of the movie. It’s not located in the Chippewa Square where the scenes are filmed, but has been moved to the Savannah History Museum. You can still take touristy pictures in the Chippewa Square just maybe standing up.
So if you are looking to experience some southern culture while vising US, Savanah is definitely the place to be.
As for my outfit, I felt like wearing my Mexican off the sholder top. Shorts were a great option too for the bike ride. As for the headscarf…well you already know I love wearing those. They are also just very useful on sunny days. The material of this scarf is silk and cotton, so it kept my head cool. I find hats of any kind make my head too hot. I guess it may just come down to preference.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Have a great weekend y’all!

Ciao!

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

Dolce&Gabbana, off the shoulder dress, canadian blogger, kako nositi kratku haljinu, ankle strap sandals. winners fab finds, best blogger outfits, niagara wine country,

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.

Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs look much longer here then they are. Just the angle of the picture.

Birthday dinner was spent in a winery. I know what you’re going to say. My last birthday was spent in the wine country, visiting multiple wineries. No I’m not an alcoholic ahahhaha. Yes I absolutely ENJOY a great meal and a great glass of wine. Niagara wine country has some of THE BEST white wines, in particular oaked chardonnays. A must visit if you are visiting Canada.

With that I leave you to enjoy your weekend & watch Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro. Will you be cheering for your team?

Ciao!
