A Red Pencil

 
 Skirt Jacobs, heels Forever 21, shirt TNA (Aritzia), sunglasses Prada, gloves Ebay, bag Louis Vuitton, belt Ardene, watch unknown
 
 

Last outfit for the week, to close off our mid-century skirt fall trend, is a pencil skirt which also became popular in the mid-40s. This may be my favourite style. Not necessarily the best fitting one for my boyish body shape, but my favourite. I own quite a few different designs, colours and materials. Every girl should have at least couple of pencil skirts in their closet; one classic black and one bright hued one. Red seems to be a great choice. It is acceptable in an office environment but is sexy enough to wear out as well. There is a style of a pencil skirt that can be found for every body shape, so make sure you find yourself one. If you are on a heavier side, choose one with thinker, better quality material. Thin ones usually show off every imperfection, and you want to feel great wearing a pencil skirt and not worry about how it looks on you. Even if you are very slim, thicker material will add volume to your body and therefore create more curves. If you are blessed with curves and hips this is a must style for you. I opt for high waist ones that go up to the narrowest area of my mid-section in order to create an hourglass silhouette. I also often wear a slim belt around it to accentuate the waist even more. And lets not forget I have a great tailor near my house. Not everything can fit perfectly off the rack, so do yourself a favour and find a great tailor! Stay tuned for next week to see what I have prepared for you. Ciao!
Ovu sedmicu posvecenu jesenjem trendu suknji i haljina iz sredine proslog veka, zavrsavamo sa jednom pencil suknjom. Pencil suknje su takodje postale popularne sredinom 40tih godina. Ovo je definitivno moj omiljeni model. Nije bas najbolji za moj oblik tela, ali definitivno moj omiljeni. U mom ormaru se krije gomila razlicitih boja, dezena i materijala. Svaka zena treba da ima u svom ormaru bar dve pencil suknje; jednu klasicnu crnu i jednu u jarkoj boji. Crvena je dobar izbor jer je prihvatljiva i za kancelariju ali je dovoljno sexy i za izlazak. Bez obzira na vas oblik tela, postoje razliciti modeli, zato ne odustajte nego se bacite i potragu vase savrsene pencil suknje. Ja nosim iskljucivo pencil suknje visokog struka, i uz tanak kais, dajem iluziju oblina. Takodje imam snajderku blizu mene koju koristim da nekada malo popravi po neki odevni komad koji mi mozda ne stoji savrseno odmah iz prodavnice.  Ovo je poslednji outfit za ovu sedmicu, ali ne zaboravite da me pratite open od nedelje i da vidite sta sam pripremila za vas. Cao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
