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!

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. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

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…
