Running Out Of Time

 
 
 
  Blog post up! Check! One less thing on my to do list. I am leaving on my trip in 3 days and I have not even picked out outfits yet or started packing. I don’t like to travel heavy, especially because I like to shop when I am away and I need room in my luggage for the return trip. But mostly because I just don’t like to carry too many things with me. I prefer to preplan what to wear, plan to use same pieces of clothing in more than one outfit. I much prefer to enjoy every second enjoying the city then spending time putting things together. This task was on my to do list to finish today, but it might have to wait till tomorrow. I am so disorganized this time that believe it or not, I only booked the hotel today! But I got the one I wanted J. Check, check!
 
This H&M dress, is the most comfortable dress for the summer for me. And only $15. I also have it in black and army green (here). I wear it to the beach, running around city, going out, and so on. I love the bright coralish red which would look absolutely amazing on many different complexions. The pictures don't do justice to the colour as I had to use flash to take these pictures since the sun was already down. I usually wear a cropped denim jacket with it to give me appearance of more curves, and I really love this one with leather (imitation) sleeves. I got this jacket and this great bag (lamb leather) at Winners. I know a lot of people get hives just thinking about going to Winners to look for clothes, but I find it fun. For those of you not from Canada wondering what Winners is, it is a store similar to Marshals in the US. I am not too familiar with similar type stores in Europe, but put simply it is a type of a store that carries many brand (and not so brand) and designer names, from clothing to house wear. I don’t look at everything hanging on the racks. I walk around and if something catches my eye I will look at it. Bags and shoes are much easier to browse through. And make sure that you go on a week day and not on a weekend; otherwise you just may lose your mind. I simply love not knowing what I will find when I walk in and I get absolutely exited finding a little treasure. A treasure such as my Versace $200 (originally $800) lace sandals maybe? Or L.A.M.B. sandals $50 (originally $350)! What is your favourite place to shop?

  1. Love the dress. Picked up a green one 2 weeks ago on clearance for $5! I like your version of pairing it with black tights. I would feel more comfortable.

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
