Kalemegdan Forteress


 Top Bershka, shorts H&M, heels Naughty Monkey (Heels.com), bracelets unknown, sunglasses Aldo, bag unknown (Winners), ring Ebay


Considering the cool weather in Toronto this past 2-3 days I was debating whether or not to post my last look from Belgrade. The outfit I wore is very summery and simple so it does not go well with this fall like weather, but I decided to go ahead with it. After all, there are parts of the world where it’s still hot, right?
The biggest reason why I decided to post this outfit is actually the location where the pictures were shot, Kalemegdan Fortress (Belgrade Fortress on Google) in Belgrade city centre. The fortress is overlooking the delta of rivers Sava and Danube, or as the people say, where Danube is kissing Sava. When I used to live in Belgrade, every Sunday my best friend and I, just as many other people living in this amazing city do, used to grab popcorn or ice-cream or anything to munch on, and we would walk the fortress streets for hours and talk and laugh. It’s is absolutely beautiful and full of history. It has seen many empires come and go, many wars, and it still keeps on standing proud and beautiful. After a long walk (the shoes again were not the right choice for these cobble streets), we sat in one of the beautiful caf├ęs and restaurants located in the fortress overlooking the city. A break well deserved.
I’m wearing here a top you have seen me wear couple of times this summer, but it’s a very comfortable and light weight top, perfect for the hot summer days. Again, shorts for me are replacement for jeans in the summer. I own way too many pairs. And of course my gorgeous Aldo sunglasses which I've managed to lose in Greece. Sadness! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 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…
