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!

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…
