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!
