Winter Layering with Over The Knee Boots (& a Visit to Ripley's Aquarium)

Jeans Zara, boots Aldo, jacket Danier old (similar jacket or check out Ebay), bag Chanel (vintage), scarf unknown, fur sole vintage

I hadn’t planned to post this outfit on the blog, only on Instagram, but I had too many beautiful pictures of my excursion to the Toronto Ripley’s Aquarium that I just had to share. If I had shared even half of them on my Instagram account, I’m pretty sure complaints would start coming in for posting too much, and inundating the Instagram feed hehehe. Anywhoo, I have a few pictures of the outfit too, so this still counts as an outfit post right?
Winter has finally arrived to Toronto (temperature wise, but still no snow) so it was quite cold to walk outside, but my layering skills have improved over the years so I can now tolerate the cold. I used to wear bulky sweaters or shirts to keep warm but have realized that it’s not the thickness that counts (I am talking about clothes, please get your mind out of the gutter!), but the number of layers and materials you wear. On this day I also used one of my summer scarfs as an extra layer but also to add to the interest of the outfit. It gives the outfit more dimension and therefore it’s more pleasing to the eye.
This gorgeous lined jacket is from Danier Leather but it’s at least 3 years old. It’s warm yet the leather is really soft and allows for ease of movement.
Over the knee boots are a perfect way to add layers to your bottom and keep you extra warm.
Oh by the way, before I forget, I just wanted to say I recommend to everyone to visit the Aquarium. It’s not just for kids. It’s very relaxing and before you know it, you will have spent 3-4 hours observing the life under the sea. I gotta say, it’s not the same as scuba diving, but if you never did that, this will come close. Enjoy!

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…
