Gray Midi Skirt

Skirt H&M (similar from Topshop at The Bay), heels unknown Ebay, dress (worn as top) Forever 21, clutch Chapters

Toronto is all snowed in again. Ugh. It's a good thing I snapped these photos over the weekend when weather was absolutely gorgeous. Today's outfit is quite a departure from yesterday's, don't you think? Definitely not a tomboy look. It's been a while since I wore this midi A-line skirt from H&M. It is very demur if you ask me. It brings out the lady in me every time I wear it :). One thing you have to watch out for when it comes to wearing this style of a skirt, if you are on a shorter side like me, it's making sure that the hem hits you in the right spot. An inch up or down can make a huge difference. So test it out in front of a mirror and make sure you take it to a tailor to make it just perfect for you. Those of you who have been blessed with long legs, don't have to worry. If you are a petite, I would definitely stay away from midi skirts, you are better off with shorter skater style. Now, I'm not sure if it's just me, but these photos look like they were taken at an old train stations. Something about the skirt, the bricks and the bench make me feel like I went back in time and like a true lady, I'm waiting for a train. I'm just missing a hat and a different bag to go with it. What do you think? Do you agree or am I officially loosing it? hahaha. Ciao!
Toronto je opet prekriven snegom. Dobro je pa ne cujete moje jecaje. Na srecu ove slike su uslikane preko vikenda kada je napolju bilo prelepo vreme. Danasnji outfit je definitivno kompletan kontrast jucerasnjem, zar ne? Od davno nisam imala sansu da pronosam ovu divnu suknju iz H&M. Dopada mi se jer je vrlo zenstvena i kada god je nosim osecam se kao dama u njoj. Ako ste niske kao ja, morate dobro obratiti paznju na duzinu suknje. Ako je potrebno malo da je skratite obavezno to uradite inace ce te izgledati zdepaste. Ako ste blazene dugim nogama, vi nemate brige. A vi dame koje ste jako niske izbegavajte ovu duzinu i model po svaku cenu. Bolje ce vam pristajati kratke suknjice. A sto se tice ovih slika, ne znam da li je to samo u mojoj glavi, ali me podsecaju kao da su uslikane na nekoj staroj zeleznickoj stanici. Kada ih gledam, dal zbog cigli, klupe ili stila suknje, imam osecaj da sam odputovala nazad u vreme, nekin davnih 40tih ili 50til i cekam na voz. Jedino mi jos nedostaje sesir prikladan toj epohi i odgovarajuca tasnica. Da li se i vama tako cini ili sam sam konacno malo prolupala? hahahah 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…
