Today I’m sharing with you my second outfit from Chicago. I will not share all of the outfits I wore. Honestly, we were too busy walking, having fun, laughing, enjoying the views and taking selfies (hehehe), that taking outfit pictures was not a priority. Also, as I already said in my previous post, I had not packed well enough for this trip so the outfits were not, in my opinion, the most photogenic for the blog.

This outfit today I wore for a day of shopping and eating. I wanted to wear something that comes off easily when trying on clothes in the changerooms. There is nothing worse than when you wear a cute but layered outfit that takes forever to take off. You end up getting tired from just that and it ruins your shopping day. I also needed comfortable shoes as it was another long day of walking, so I opted for these black and white H&M sneakers. I will be honest. I have been looking for black sneakers with white soles for some time. However, as I wear mostly heels, I did not want to spend $150 on a pair of sneakers that I would just wear on occasion. I came across this pair in H&M just before my trip for just $40 and thought they were perfect. They were comfortable as well.
I paired them with theses imitation leather pants or sweatpants I got back in March when I was visiting Serbia. I bought it in a store called New Yorker of which I have never heard of here in North America, so I cannot tell you much about it. It’s similar to Forever 21 for example. I love sweatpants and these ones, because of the material, are dressy enough to wear out in public. They are very cute with sneakers but can look really hot with heels. Pair it with a feminine blouse for a softer look.
I wore it with a cropped top but I pulled them high so they looked like they were high waist pants. They are actually intended to be worn more relaxed and lower on waist, but I love the fact that the style gives me options on how to wear them.
So this concludes my brief talk about Chicago trip. It was fun walking the Michigan Avenue, visiting the Bean at night, shopping, taking the boat tour, getting lost in the city, walking a marathon in heels looking for fun places to eat and drink, enjoying the pier, talking to people, riding the train and so much more.

Oh talking about the train (I’m sorry but I have to share this), Chicago is very unique. Chicago transportation system is mainly made up of trains, not subways, trains. These trains for the most part are above ground so depending where you are it may be passing you over head as you are walking or driving on the street. What is more interesting, in the downtown area or the loop, some of the lines pass between the buildings, the high-rises as well as the residential buildings (as you can see in some of the pictures below). And they are not very far from them at all. You could be sitting in your office and the train passes by you just couple of meters away. They are also pretty loud. It’s not necessarily the most appealing view but it definitely makes Chicago unique.

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…
