I’m back with more pictures and a (half) new outfit from my road trip first stop in New Orleans. There will be one more after this one and then I will move onto new locations, heehhe. New Orleans is just so picturesque and photogenic that I couldn’t get myself to stop snapping pictures. I opted to carry only my IPhone as it would be too cumbersome to carry my large Canon. I was more dedicated to my enjoying the vacation then the blog, I know. But who can blame me, right?

On our visit to New Orleans, I could not skip a trip to the swamp to check out some gators. I was really looking forward to riding on the airboat and seeing the alligators up close in their natural habitat. You will pardon my messy hair in the photos. There is only so much you can do when the wind is involved, hehehe.

I absolutely enjoyed the nature. Such a difference from northern climate and northern lakes and forests. I was asking about the houses which around the swamp and what is the point of being on the border of the water, if one cannot swim. I learned that gators are very shy animals and usually avoid people. They rarely attack, only when really hungry or cornered. Locals do swim in these waters. Now, soon after that there was a sad incident of a boy being snagged by an alligator in Florida, so I would not dare to ever swim here. There are also extremely poisonous water snakes here, so who is crazy enough to go swimming? But being on the boat was a lot of fun. Alligators were attracted to approach the boat by marshmallows, which what locals call swamp cocaine.

Can you imagine my fear and excitement when the guide brought out his own baby alligator? Well he is actually not a baby, he is 3 years old. But I learned that alligators adapt to their environment, and as he kept it in an aquarium it did not grow past his current size. I expected the skin to be rough but it was beyond soft. He was such a cutie and a trooper, patiently waiting to be passed around like a toy, for everyone to touch him. I caught myself wanting one for a pet, then I remembered I’m against wild animals being used as pets. Sadly, we had to say bye to the little cutie. The guide’s name was Rich and he named his pet alligator Dollar. Funny, no?

Once back in the city, a bike ride around was a must. I managed to make some more furry friends. What can one do. I got so much love to give! Heheheh

As for the outfit, what can I say? It was hot, I was going to the swamp, I needed comfort. Yes, I am wearing the same Levi's jeans as in the last post. I said they were my favourite, didn't I? hehehe Top is from Mexico. I simply tied it into a crop top. I am wearing it in reverse because I waned a white top. Embroidery is meant to be in front. Sneakers are from Forever 21 ($8) but you can find similar in H&M

Anyone else been to New Orleans? I would love to hear what you loved about it.

Ciao!

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.
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…

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…

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…
