My, my, my how time flies! It’s September 1st already and we’re getting so close to the end of summer. Luckily the weather doesn’t agree with this so I am more than happy. How has your summer been?  I personally haven’t gotten away anywhere just yet, but hopefully soon. This year in general has not been developing according to my plans much, so why should my summer?!

One thing that I enjoy doing, especially in the summer, is having mini vacations in the city, or stay-cations. Usually people tend to do this on the weekends, but my weekends are usually overbooked as it is, so I often pick a random day in the week off work to do this. I love exploring the city on my bike. It seems to be my main accessory this summer on the blog, hehehe. I find that it’s the best way to explore. You get around the city easily, you can cross a much bigger area then just walking, but you can also just park it anywhere and continue your exploration on foot, stop grab a bite to eat, have a drink by the lake, walk in a park, and so on. Sometimes our lives are moving too fast and we tend to always be on a schedule, so these little mini home vacations are just perfect to break that routine and schedule, don’t you think?

So what do you chose to wear to do this? Well it’s up to you, but you don’t always have to choose a sporty outfit. Why not opt for a fun floral jumpsuit instead? It’s comfortable yet fashionable. Jumpsuits have been everywhere this summer and will keep strong right into fall. I personally think they never go out of style. This one I bought from Sheinside. If you have long legs, you may be out of luck here, as the leg length is a bit short. If you like to wear them cropped, then they will do just perfectly. And the material is so lightweight that you almost feel like you're not wearing anything. 
And if you don’t want to wear flats or sneakers, wedges are just as good. Heels would make pedaling much more difficult, but wedges have a full sole, so they work just perfectly. You may have to lift your seat a bit though to accommodate for the extra few inches.

So when are you planning to have your little stay-cation and explore your city?

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. 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…
