Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

Ankle boots Aldo, overalls/dungarees Stradivarius, blouse H&M, clutch (make-up bag) Shoppers Drugmart, earrings Casia Verde 

Valentine's day is just around the corner (and though I write Valentine's day, for some reason I have been saying Haloween for the last few days, not sure why). This seems to be one of those holidays where people are either for it or against it. I'm not talking about the overly commercialized holiday, but the actual day of love itself. I don't like anything over commercialized but nowadays that is just the case with all holidays. I'm not saying you have to go all out in order to confess your love. And I know some people claim that if you love someone, you should tell them every day, you don't need a holiday to tell you that. I certainly agree. But we celebrate Mothers/Fathers day, Women's day, etc and it doesn't mean we don't love or celebrate our mothers, father, women, etc all year long; it just means that we believe that they deserve one day per year to celebrate them only. So why not LOVE too? Love keeps the world running and it should be celebrated. Not jut romantic love, any love should be celebrated. With that, I am easing into this topic today with a more casual outfit. Those of you who don't like or don't want to go all out on this holiday, but don't mind having another excuse to spend it with your loved one, how about you go to a nice rustic coffee shop (no Franchises please), for some coffee, tea or to share a cake. Have that time to talk to each other, sans technology. I went to a nice coffee shop on the weekend, Balzac's in the Distillery District. Great place, great coffee and great company, what else can one want. You may want to stay more casual for that type of a date, but make sure to add some Valentine's Day theme to your outfit. I chose this H&M blouse with heart print, romantic braided bun and fun earrings with a pop of red. Whatever your choice for Valentines, I hope you share love with whoever that may be for you. Ciao!

Jos samo nekoliko dana je ostalo do Dana Zaljubljenih/Dana Ljubavi. Ovo je jedan od onih praznika koji ili volite ili ste protiv njega. Neki ljudi tvrde da im nije potreban praznik da bi nekome rekli da ga vole. Definitivno se slazim sa ovim. Medjutim, slavimo praznike kao sto su dan zena, Materice, (na zapadu Dan Majki), itd. To ne znaci da ne cenimo, ne volimo ili ne postujemo ove licnosti u toku cele godine, to samo znaci da oni zasluzuju jedan dan u godini bar da ih slavimo i ukazemo svu paznju samo na njih. Pa zasto ne bi smo i LJUBAV? Ne govorim opet ni samo o romanticnoj ljubavi, nego o ljubavi bilo koje vrste. I sa tim, polako ulazim u tu temu sa lezernijim outfitom. Za mene Dan Ljubavi ne znaci bacanje para na skupe vecere ili slicno. Za mene je to jos jedan izgovor da provedemo dan ili vece s osobom koju volimo, samo bez telefona ili slicne tehnologije. Zasto ne bi ste otisli u neki lep kafe ili poslasticarnicu, i uz kafu, caj, komad torte proveli nekoliko sati u dobrom drustvu. Za ovu casual varijantu mozete se tako i obuci. Ja sam ipak unela male elemente romantike sa ovom bluzom is H&M sa srcima, pletenicom u kosi i detaljima crvene boje u mindjusama. Kako god vi odlucite da provedet ovaj dan, nadam se da cete uzivati. Cao!

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…
