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…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.
Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs lo…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!
