Taking pictures yesterday was impossible due to the weather. It was cold outside but that would not be a problem if it were not for the wind. The winds were blowing from all directions (at least that's how it felt) and it was impossible to keep hair neat or even keep your clothes (scarves, hats) from blowing away. We tried to do it outside, as true warriors, but lost the battle in the matter of seconds. Just check out one of the pictures below. As we got out, all of a sudden flurries started up as well. We had no choice but to shoot these pictures in the back hallways of a building. They came out ok. And before this starts sounding as if you have just tuned into a weather channel blog, let me stop myself.
Last couple of weeks have been a blurr for me. They flew by because I was sooo busy with too many things on the go. And just when I felt like my days are too occupied, I listened to Elaine Lui from Lainey Gossip about her schedule at the blogger conference Spark Sessions over the weekend (you read about this even in yesteryday's post) and realized I should not complain. I also get that same feeling when I talk to my friends with kids. My life is still not that busy after all :). 
Now, finally, back to the outfit. This outfit I wore the first day of the Spark Sessions conference. I never got to snap any picutres of my outfits on the day of for several reasons, but I will reproduce both outfits this week for you to see. This gorgeous dress is from Vero Moda I got from Winners for only $35. As for the jacket, I keep on wearing it even though it is getting too cold for it here in Canada. But I just love it that much that I will sacrifice freezing only to be able to wear it (mom, please don't read this part).
And this fur (lets call it) scarf I purchased in a vintage store in the city. Now, I'm not going to pretend that I am against fur. I'm neither against nor for, kind of confused is more like it. After all, I love eating meat and there is no pretending.  I love the fur but I usually chose to buy it from vintage stores. It is cheaper and it is recycling the fashion. I would buy a new piece too, but I have learned that I will for sure research first where the company buys their fur from before I buy it. Some of these places keep their animals caged in such small cages that they can't even move for the duration of their short lives. And as a dog owner and animal lover, I can't be ok with that kind of treatment.
I will end my post here. I'm starting to notice I am getting chatty today. And as my friends best know, when days like this come around, I can talk, and talk and talk. So ladies, have a wonderful week! Ciao!

Danasnji post, zbog duzine teksta ce biti na zalost samo na engleskom. Nadam se da mi necete zameriti. Sutra nastavljamo opet. 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…

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…

All Pink in Cinque Terre - Beautiful Italian Coast

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit.  You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns a…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
