Hello ladies. No don't worry, you are not losing your mind, it is not Thursday still. The post is a little late. I was running around town finishing errands and packing as I am leaving today to Europe for 3 weeks, so I lost track of time. And then had some technical difficulties so it made no sense to me to post in the middle of the night. Yes, I was up till 3 AM this morning and am up again and it is only 7AM. I guess I will sleep like a baby on the plane :). You know those days when you are already busy as it is, and then a whole bunch of new things have to come up or you encounter problem after problem. Well yesterday was that kind of day for me. But it is a new day today and so far it has been good :). Even pictures yesterday would not come out right. It was a bit later in the day when we went to my usual location to shoot them, so after I reviewed them none of them were good. I was about to give up on the post for last night but decided to give it one last try. So we shot a few pictures in the basement of my building (I'm sure you can tell) because it had gotten dark outside. They came out ok. Those of you photography experts don't give me hard time :). So here are the results.
As for the outfit I chose to wear this fun bright floral dress. I actually bought it year and a half ago. I wore it a few times and then never again. It was actually knee length so I would usually wear it to the office or a more serious event. But to freshen it up, I had it hemmed and it is now great for the summer. I am in a love/hate relationship with floral pattern. I either love it (like this dress) or really hate it. It's a tricky trend for me. I don't like looking too girly/romantic and also don't like to look matronly, like an old woman. And florals, depending on the pattern and colour can do just that. I think I will stick to wearing them on a dress only and shoes too. Jackets and jeans, not my style. How about you, do you like floral trend? Ciao

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…
