Strolling The Streets Of Madrid

Dress Mendocino, belt Blanco, boots old Urban Planet, bag Cut n’Paste Winners, earrings old Spring, chain ring H&M, bird ring street buy Madrid, sunglasses Ray Ban.

As I spent 4 days in Madrid alone until around 5PM while my husband was at his conference, I managed to use every moment to the maximum and see as much as I could (along with some shopping of course). I would stroll the streets sometimes unsure of my direction. I spent most of the time looking up at the buildings. I know Madrid is not THE best city in Europe for its architecture, but I loved it regardless. I would stop to rest a bit on patios with a cup of coffee but mostly I walked a lot. I get myself into trouble sometimes not realizing how much I have crossed one way, that I can barely make it home. I did just this couple of days before we left for Malaga. I crossed about 7K in these boots in the summer heat. I tried to walk in the shade as much as possible but the asphalt gets so hot that the shade doesn’t help that much. I had to purchase in the end flats/sandals because I could not bare it any more. They came in handy going to the beach in Malaga as I had not brought any beach appropriate footwear.
As for the outfit, it is another white summer dress I bought in Mendocino outlet for $45 paired with my new belt from Blanco, summer boots and the blog regular, Cut n’Paste bag from Winners. I know I will get a lot of wear out of this dress, as it is great for both day and night. I absolutely love the sheer back and the buttons.White dress is a must for the summer months in my books. Your thoughts?

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…
