This is my last post from my trip to Mexico. Though the plan for the trip was to relax as much as possible and spend every day at the beach, I could not visit Cancun without visiting the gorgeous archeological sight Chichen Itza some couple of hours away from Cancun. It was the most important capital city of the Maya and still is the sacred center for them. I read and learned a lot about the Maya and Chichen Itza in University while learning Spanish, and could not miss the opportunity to see it with my own eyes. It is absolutely gorgeous and must be visited. You will learn some extremely interesting facts about this intriguing culture. We did not go with the prepackaged tourist groups. I don't like to be on other people's schedule and hate crowds, especially when I am hot. So instead, we rented a car and organized a tour of our own. We arrived there before most of the crowds and stayed as long or as short as we wanted. It's more fun to explore on your own and ended up being quite cheaper as well.
We also visited a huge well nearby where you can also take a swim in it's really cold water. It's actually very refreshing after the hot jungle weather in Chichen Itza. Below are some pictures of the well but they don't do it justice.
After we cooled off, we headed to a charming town of Valladolid. Again, I read about it back in my University days and was beyond happy to be able to visit it in person as well. Valladolid is one of the oldest colonial cities. It is really pretty but the time and lack of maintenance have taken it's toll. I loved its people. They would smile at you genuinely as you walked by. There were many old women, very tiny in statue, wearing their traditional dresses, as you see on this beautiful girl below. I thought them to be gorgeous! I left with a lot of beautiful memories and feeling beyond satisfied.
I loved my brief visit to Mexico and the sincere politeness and kindness of people. My dream would be to visit the whole country with someone who is familiar with it. Maybe one day. This will have to do for now. Generally, I would love to visit all of the Spanish speaking countries, and can't really define why draws me to them but they are on top of my travel list. Love being able to practice my Spanish too so I don't forget it.
I chose a very light outfit for this day. I knew I was going to walk a ot so I wore again my wedges from Aldo. I just love the orange colour. I find that it makes a regular wedge more fun. Denim shorts again are my choise for hot weather because I find that they don't ride up when you walk a lot. And they just always look cool, heheeh. I wore another cotton corpped top to stay cool. Hat and sunglasses are of couse a must to protect from the scorching sun. I added some colour with my bright all-purpose embroidered bag and some jewellery.  Happy long weekend to all of you who are lucky enough to have it! Ciao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
