Coctail Attire Appropriate: Pencil Skirt

Skirt Bedo, blouse Sirens, bag unknown (Winners), heels Asos, necklace Ebay, bracelets Tffiany&Co and others are no name 

I just spent 4 amazing days in Montreal and Mont Tremblant, Quebec province. It was my mini vacation of sorts. The first day I had a business coctail party to attend and had packed accordingly. Well, we arrived to Montreal just in time for me to get ready and maybe take a little break from travelling. When I arrived I realized that I had left my dress hanging in my bedroom and had nothing to wear. Literally. I packed minimal outfits and they all involved ripped jeans and shorts. I don't think those would necessarily be appropriate for a business cocktail party.I had about 45 minutes to buy something. Now I didn't want to spend much money as I had other plans and I didn't want to buy something I would get no use out of. No matter how little money you spend, if you never wear it again, it will be a waste. I found a few stores but nothing to my liking in them. I finally got to scramble this outfit. I found this skirt and a blouse in two separate stores, all for under $60. And I will definitely be wearing both many times to come. With my obstacle out of the way, I was ready to enjoy my trip. More on the trip to come this week. Ciao!

Upravo sam se vratila sa mini odmora koji sam provela u Montrealu i Mont Tremblant planini, u Kvebek provinciji. Prvi dan sam samo imala poslovnu koktel zabavu i s tim u planu, ponela haljinu koja odgovara za ovu priliku. Kada smo stigli u Montreal, imala sam samo malo vremena da se odmorim i da se spremim za zabavu. Medjutim cim smo stigli shvatila sam da mi je haljina ostala kuci. Nisam imala absolutno nista za obuci. Svi ostali outfiti sto sam spakovala su bili sacinjeni od iscepanih farmerki ili sorca. Nista od toga nije bas prilagodjeno za ovu priliku hehe. I u 45 minuta sam morala nesto da nadjem u blizini mog hotela. Nisam zelela da bacim mnogo para na novi outfit jer sam imala neke druge planove, a u isto vreme nisam zelela ni da kupim nesto sto vise nikada necu obuci. Bez obzira koliko jeftino to bilo, za mene je to bacanje para. U poslednjem momentu sam uspela da nadjem ovu suknju i bluzu u dve razlicite prodavnice, a sve za manje od $60. I tako s mojim problemom resenim, mogla sam da se prepustim uzivanju u ovom prelepom gradu. A o tome i neki drugi dan. 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…
