How To Mix Prints - Ethnic & Stripes

Skirt and sweater Forever 21, boots Aldo, bag Danier, jacket Zara, faux fur infinity scarf Chapters

You probably already know if you follow my blog, that I love mixing prints. I lover the effect it creates and the unlimited options you get to play up your wardrobe. If you want to try out this trend but you are not sure what to do, start off with something easy and safe. I find that stripes and polka-dots are the easiest print to incorporate with others. First think about mixing prints that are in similar shades. Try it out in front of the mirror and see how you feel. Just be brave, getting used to new things is not always instantaneous. Some other tested and true options are stripes and plaid or tartan, stripes and leopard, mixing different check patterns but again keep the latter in the same colour family. In Monday`s post I mixed checks, stripes and polkadots. Today I opted for stripes and ethnic print or world traveler as they now call it.  I challenge you to try this out. Make sure to let me know if you were successful in taking yourself out of your comfort zone. You can leave a comment on my blog, email me, tweet, tag me on Facebook or Instagram. Looking forward to it! Ciao!

Ako pratite moj blog znate vec da obozavam da mesam razlicite dezene u odeci. Ako zelite da se isprobate u ovome ali niste sigurni tacno sta se uklapa jedon s drugim, dacu vam nekoliko vec isprobanih primera. Po mom misljenju, pruge i tufne su definitvno dva od najlaksih printova za kombinovanje. Pocnite prvo sa mesanjem printova ali u bojama slicnih nijansi i bojame koje pripadaju istoj grupi. Isprobavajte vase kombinacije ispred ogledala i vidite kako se osecate u njima. Nemojte gubiti lako hrabrost jer navika na promene nije cesto momentalna. Mozda ce vam trebati vise vremena da se usavrsite. Ako vec ne zelite da eksprerimentisete i zelite da se koristite samo vec isprobanim primerima, onda su tu uvek kombinacija pruga i karo dezena, pruga i leopard printa, razlkiciti karo dezeni jedni s drugima ali da pak budu u slicnim nijansama. Pogledajte kako sam ja takodje pomesala karo, pruge i tufnice u outfitu ove sedmice. Drage moje dajem vam sada jedan zadatak, a to je da se isprobate u mesanju printova (ako to vec uveliko ne radite) i izadjete malo iz svoje svakodnevne i sigurne uniforme. Obavezno mi javite ako vam je poslo za rukom i kako ste se osecale.  Mozete mi se javiti putem Tvitera, Facebooka, Instagrama, ostaviti komentar na blogu ili pak poslati email. Jedva cekam! 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…
