Get Your Nerd On!

 
 
 
  Today was one hectic day for me. I am preparing for an unexpected trip to Spain (I am sacrificing myself to go with my husband on his work trip J) and there are too many things to finish before I go. And the fact that it rained almost the whole day doesn’t make running these errands any easier. I also finally decided to get back into a healthier lifestyle and signed up for an outdoor boot camp 2/week for 8 weeks. I got a great deal for $29 on Living Social website. I think this is the best way to try out something you haven’t done before. Some people have said to me that it’s not fair to only go to these classes because of the low price, because we are just abusing the deal. Well I think quite the opposite. If it were not for this type of a deal I would never had tried yoga. And now that I have, I love it…I just have to get my butt off the couch and sign up for a class. It’s just a hard time finding a good one in my area. So a friend of mine and I signed up for this boot camp class and today was the second day. Despite our deep desire to make it to every one of those classes, we both decided to ditch it due to our other obligations. Let me tell you, we both felt relieved when it started raining again. We felt like we had a really good excuse now.
One of those errands I mentioned above was taking pictures for this post. I have several other outfits already ready, but for some reason they did not feel right for today. I’m sure you can tell by now that my favorite piece of clothing are jeans. I have about 20 pairs. I know, because my mom points that out every time she comes to visit. I also know how many shoes I have because of her J. This is again a more casual outfit. I got these jeans in Zara last year when I was in New York for my sister’s birthday with a group of girlfriends. They are not exactly the boyfriend jean style. They are a combination of that and harem pants style. A style of which I am a huge fan. I remember the look on my sister’s and my friends’ faces when I showed them the jeans… it was not a positive one J. They did admit later that they liked them once the outfit was put together. I paired them here with one of my favourite pumps that I got in boutique WM as my friend and I call it (Walmart J) for only $25. I have been wearing them for about year and half now. And I wear them a lot, yet they continue to survive. A cute little tshirt from WM as well and a military inspired jacket from Marshalls. The whole outfit (excluding the clutch) was $100. You can also wear these jeans with cute little flats instead of heels, they will look just as great. Hope you like it! Ciao!

PS. Remember that promise I made in my very first post, that I will keep my future posts brief? Well, it looks like I just broke that promise today. Ooops!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
