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!

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…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of MontrĂ©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Jeans Topshop, slides H&M, bag Louis Vuitton, lipstick Mac All Fired Up
Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…
