East Coast Road Trip to Savannah - Off the Sholder Top & Cutoffs

Shorts OneTeaspoon, off the sholder top bought in Mexico (no name), scarf Winners, earrings unknown

Howdy friends! Summer is slowly coming to an end and I have still not finished sharing with you outfits and pictures of my road trip through East Coast USA. I guess in a way I’m procrastinating so that I get to enjoy and reminisce of my travels for a longer period of time.
Next stop on the road trip was Savannah, Georgia. Well, after Miami we stopped for a day at the Jacksonville Beach but continued straight to Savannah that same evening. I didn’t really take any pictures of Jacksonville Beach. It was just a beach town, but compared to everything we saw before, Jacksonville Beach kind of wasn’t as exciting. Oh, how easily we get spoiled, right?
Savannah was quite a surprise for me. I didn’t research it at all before going. I just heard that it is a must see city on the east coast. I chose to be surprised, and surprised I was.
Being of Easter European descent and having lived in Canada half of my life, this was my very first exposure to a real Southern (USA) city and culture. My only exposure before this was through Hollywood, ahahah.
We arrived late in the evening and I was first mesmerized by the long alleyway streets. The trees are so old and big, it was beautiful to see them. The streets were dimly lit but that added to their beauty. The trees are all covered with (what I learned while visiting swamps in New Orleans) Spanish moss which creates these eerie shadows on the streets. It’s quite a sight. While riding around the town just to check it out before heading off to bed, we stumbled upon the waterfront and I was very pleasantly surprised. I have a thing for cobblestone streets and old, old buildings. Even if they look a little dungy, the thought of the history behind them makes them very endearing to me.
The next day we spent riding our bikes around town, taking trolley rides to learn a bit of history of this beautiful old town, ate some very heavy southern comfort food and just enjoyed the sights. It was a wonderful time and if you are visiting east coast, do make sure to stop and visit this gem of East Coast. What I particularly loved was that there were no sky scrapers. The city is full of Suares and roundabout intersections. It is extremely pedestrian friendly. It is hot and humid, so make sure to dress accordingly. To behonest, I’m still quite puzzled how the local food can be so heavy considering such hot climate. What I also found interesting was how many different types of churches I saw. I have never seen more churches in one city then I did in Savannah. One interesting fact, if you watched and loved the movie Forrest Gump, you may like to know that you can see the bench used in the filming of the movie. It’s not located in the Chippewa Square where the scenes are filmed, but has been moved to the Savannah History Museum. You can still take touristy pictures in the Chippewa Square just maybe standing up.
So if you are looking to experience some southern culture while vising US, Savanah is definitely the place to be.
As for my outfit, I felt like wearing my Mexican off the sholder top. Shorts were a great option too for the bike ride. As for the headscarf…well you already know I love wearing those. They are also just very useful on sunny days. The material of this scarf is silk and cotton, so it kept my head cool. I find hats of any kind make my head too hot. I guess it may just come down to preference.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Have a great weekend y’all!

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…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
