Niagara On The Lake - Part 1

Shorts and top H&M, sneakers Adidas, bag unknown (Winners), earrings JLO (old), sunglasses (Aldo), watch Michael Kors, bracelets Joe Fresh


When I said I was only going to post when I had some free time and really had the urge to do so, I was not joking. And let me tell you, the time flew faster than I thought it would. After all, it’s already August. But I’d rather do this when I have the urge to do it, rather than because I should. I love doing this blog, and anything I post should be done out of love too.
Those who follow me on Instagram, have already seen this outfit, in bits and pieces. Here I share some more pictures of it. These pictures were taken couple of weeks ago. July 11th to be exact, my birthday. I had an absolutely beautiful birthday weekend. I could not wish for more. I spent two days in Niagara on the Lake and a night at Niagara Falls. Saturday was a day dedicated to wine tasting, bike rides and absolute relaxation. I am so happy we did the wine tasting and visiting wineries on a bike. We got to really enjoy and appreciate the scenery. I always feel such a sense of calm and pure happiness when I ride a bike. I only discovered how much I enjoy it last year when I purchased my bike. Before that, I had not ridden one since I was a kid.
The only little issue I encountered was that they did not serve any food in the first couple of wineries we visited. They were prepping for weddings and were not serving food to other guest. Well, I only had a light breakfast…so needless to say, after the second winery….wine got to my head. Hot sun didn’t help my state either. Luckily third one was nearby so I ingested (almost literally) a whole bunch of cheese, bread and grapes. Things got better after that heheeh. I learned something I didn’t know before. Even though I am a big red wine lover, I preferred Niagara’s white wines, whether Riesling or Chardonnay. I came home with a bottle from each winery, and they were all white! Who knew?!  Some of the wineries we visited are Chateau de Charme, Coyote’s Run, Ravine, Five Rows and Colanery Estate. Each winery had its charm. The last one was absolutely beautiful. For a moment I thought I found myself in wine country somewhere in Spain.
As for the outfit, it had to be something comfortable and light, for a bike ride in the sun. I wore a light bright top and shorts from H&M. I also chose to wear sneakers, for ease of riding. Accessories however made the outfit. I especially love these sunglasses from Aldo.

Ciao!

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.

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…
