Mediterranean Blue


Skirt and blouse Zara, heels Heels.com, ring (street buy Madrid), bandeau Springfield, clutch (gift, old)


As my days fly by, I manage to squeeze in a little time for another new post. I am already in Malaga but the pictures in this post were taken on the rooftop of our hotel in Madrid and in the hotel lobby. This is an absolutely amazing hotel called Vincci Via 61, in the city centre. The staff is amazing and it is just beautifully decorated. I have an issue with public bathrooms and tubs,  but this hotel is so clean and just modern enough that you feel like you are in a spa. When we visited Madrid five years ago, we stayed in this same hotel.
Back to the oufit :).  This was an outfit I wore to a business diner couple of nights ago. A bright Mediterranean blue skirt from Zara.  When I bought it, it was an awkward length on me, neither mid/below knee nor a mini. I already have a blue pencil skirt so I chose to make it into a mini. I love the pleats on the hip area as it gives illusion of smaller waist and curvier hips. I kept it very minimal with Zara shirt you have seen me wear before (here), strappy sandals, minimal jewelry and minimal make up. Who wants to wear heavy makeup in the heat anyway. Sometimes simple can have a strong impact too. Agree? I welcome your comments, good and bad. I am off to explore the beautiful city of Malaga and all its charms. Que tengan un maravilloso weekend! 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 f

Would You Wear a Bathing Suit as a Top?

Skirt H&M, bathing suit/top unknown, sandals Le Chateau, bag vintage Value Village, hat bought in Athens From north of Greece and beautiful Khalkidhiki peninsula, we headed due south and reached this little town called Athens 😊 . Athens Greece is simply beautiful. No matter where you are in the city, Gods of Acropolis are looking over you. It is such an amazing feeling especially at night when the city is covered by darkness and Acropolis shines in its full light and grandeur. It’s a wonderful feeling to be walking down city streets and being pleasantly surprised by monuments from Ancient Greece as you turn the next corner. I started of my city walk from Monesteriaki neighbourhood and walked around all neighbourhoods surrounding it, from Plaka and Kolonaki to Anafiotika and Gazi. I especially loved Anafiotika. If you love hilly neighbourhoods, then you will love Anafiotika. At night, you can sit on the stairs of cafés and enjoy a cold beer or a cocktail with all the local

Another Striped Dress, Denim Jacket & Ankle Boots

Dress & jacket H&M, boots Dolce Vita, bag Ardene, scarf Cejon (Winners), sunglasses Ray-Ban, bracelets H&M, ring Ebay Yesterday was a bit of a good and a bit of a bad day. My husband had hurt his knee so I took a day off work to take him to a clinic to check it out. It ended up being quick so we decided to spend the rest of the day in Queen West area of Toronto, and do a little picnic in a park, Trinity Bellwoods Park to be exact. It was a gorgeous and relaxing day. We lunged around, ate some lunch, had a coffee and got some sun. I wore another striped dress but this one is a bit more casual. I paired it with my cute ankle boots (little bit of country hehe) and a must have spring staple, a denim jacket. How are you enjoying the spring? Ciao! Juce je bio delom lep, a delom los dan. Moj muz je povredio koleno pa sam uzela slobodan dan s posla da ga odvezem do klinike. A posto smo brzo zavrsili, odlucili smo da napravimo mali piknik u parku Trinity Bellwoods. Bio je

Black & White Striped Forever 21 Dress & Aldo Shoes

Shoes Aldo, bag Target, dress Forever 21, jacket Le Chateau, sunglasses ZeroUV, spike bracelets Aldo, silver bracelet Tiffany&Co, watch DKNY 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
