Summer Uniform

Yet another late evening post. I really have a very good excuse for it. As I mentioned in one of the previous posts, I am getting ready for my trip to Spain. There is usually a lot to do before any trip, but it feels like Murphy ’s Law has really kicked in this time. I am getting swamped from all angels, both personally and professionally. But I am not complaining, just finding excuses for my late posts J. After all, how irrational would I be to complain about little errands when I am going to a wonderful Spain? 4 more days and counting !!!
And with my trip in mind, I have been a really good girl and have stayed away from shopping, both online and in store. I figure, I will do quite a bit of that in Madrid. And for some reason, it always feels like clothes, shoes, etc are always better somewhere else but where you live. I have a list of few things that I really want to get, but we will see how successful I am. A friend of mine told me once she loves shopping with me because I am like her conscience. I won't let her buy everything she likes and I always make her question its need. Then she said if only I could be that same conscience for myself J. I told her that considering how much I browse the stores physically and online, check out other fashion blogs and flip through pages and pages of magazines; how much I tempt myself on daily basis, I am actually doing amazing. It’s all relative right? J As for the outfit, it was a weekend outfit of going to a hairdresser to fix my hair colour, visiting some friends and just enjoying the sunshine. This is pretty much my summer uniform, denim shorts, a t-shirt, lots of jewellery and high heels. Just a reminder that you can also follow me via Bloglovin or Google, on Facebook and on Instragram. Ciao!

  1. Love your blog and style. Somehow it is over the top and still appropriate for every day. It would be helpful if you posted the price of the recently purchased items just so we know if it is worth the trip to the store.

  2. Shirt $17, shorts $35. Shoes ($20) are last years but very possible the store will still have them, as they still did in January 2013. All of the Ebay and F21 jewelery is a recent purchase all below $5 each.

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…
