Don’ t you find that sometimes in the winter even some of your favourite or even warmest coats are just not warm enough? The wind gets through, or they are too wide on your body to keep you snug and warm? Yes, you could wear puffer jackets but I gotta admit I’m not a fan of those. They usually make me look like a column with no shape. Actually, I do have a cylinder shape but that’s not necessarily a look I like to go for.  The oversized puffers are not warm enough for me because they are just too wide. I need my coat to be closer to the body to feel warm.

You may wonder why I’m talking about this now. Well, to be honest, I forgot about these pictures I took a month ago. They didn’t come out great so I wasn’t sure if I were going to use them or not, then I completely forgot about them. And for those of us living in Canada or even north USA, we may still brace for some cold harsh winter weather, despite the deceivingly mild spring like weather these last few days. And even if we are lucky not to get any more bad weather, you may keep this idea for next winter.

Usually in the winter we tend to layer our under layers. It creates fun and interesting outfits. But when it comes to coats, we tend to wear them as is. Last season you could spot a lot of looks at the fashion weeks with women wearing leather jackets under their trench coats and so on. I’m not sure about you, but none of my sleeves of my coats or my trenches are wide enough to accommodate for a layer of a leather even denim jacket underneath.
What I opt for is layering vests, be it faux fur, real fur or any other winter texture, over your regular coat. It doesn’t even need to be a neutral or single colour coat. You can layer vests on top of colourful coats. In fact it may create for an even more interesting look. We spend our winters mostly in coats so why not make them a conversation piece and your main outfit? You will be surprised how much warmer your coat will feel. It won’ just look more fun.

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.

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

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…
