I can't believe it's already been 3 weeks since my trip to Chicago. I'm only getting around to posting these pics today. It was the first half of October and we were going to a "windy city". Though I did know what the real reason for its nickname Windy City was, I still knew it actually was a windy city. It is located on the border of a great lake, just like Toronto, therefore it is bound to be windy. Especially considering it was fall already. To be honest I was in one of those style ruts where you don't feel inspired to dress, plus I left it for the last minute to pack. Needless to say I was not properly packed for this trip. First I brought the most random pieces of clothing and second, I brought too many warm clothes. And by the pictures here,  you can tell I did not need any of them. It was a beautiful fall long weekend in Chicago with temperatures between 22-23 degrees. A summer day was more like it.  Improvisation was the key here. 
This is where those classics come in. If you have enough classic well fitting items in your closet, you will be able to dress no matter what style rut you are in. Luckily for me I brought this simple cotton dress from H&M. It has become one of my most worn items. It's comfortable yet has a bit of sex appeal as it is fitted. It is just as good for wearing with sneakers as it is with some killer heels for a night out. 
Being a tourist in this big city, I knew I was going to do a lot of walking. I had opted for flats and this time another item I have been wearing a lot lately, my Chelsea style boots from Express. 
Out first day was spent visiting the Pier, taking architectural tour on a boat (a MUST when in Chicago!!!) and a deep dish pizza, another must have ( I highly recommend Giordanno's as their pizza is not too fatty or saucy, and the dough is not too thick either). We walked the streets and enjoyed the sights, some on purpose and some because we kept getting lost. Well, lost may be a hard word. We kept going the opposite way every time we decided to go somewhere. For example, when we got off the train and decided to walk to the Pier, instead of going towards the Pier, we went the opposite way. And since both my friend and I are chatterboxes, we were so deep in our conversation plus enjoying the views, that we did not realize that we had been walking for almost an hour before we noticed we are nowhere near the Pier. Luckily, I wore my comfortable Chelsea boots so the walk back was not so bad. We just opted to take a different route back to view some new things. 
I brought a backpack to stuff my jacket in it as it got warmer throughout a day. It's definitely more practical then a purse but keeping it in leather (imitation) material, it looked grownup rather then childish. I wore two scarfs here. Neither one of my leopard print scarfs are thick enough therefore they don't have much volume when wrapped around the neck, so I opted to wear them both. I liked because both different colours made it look even more interesting. You could do this also with scarfs with different prints to create your own, unique look. For cooler weather, throw on a cool parka instead of denim jacket to stay warm yet still look stylish.

That's it from me for my first post from Chicago. Second one will follow in a few days. 

Fun fact: The building in the second last picture is so big, that it has it's own zip code!

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…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.

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…

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…
