A Red Pencil

Last outfit for the week, to close off our mid-century skirt fall trend, is a pencil skirt which also became popular in the mid-40s. This may be my favourite style. Not necessarily the best fitting one for my boyish body shape, but my favourite. I own quite a few different designs, colours and materials. Every girl should have at least couple of pencil skirts in their closet; one classic black and one bright hued one. Red seems to be a great choice. It is acceptable in an office environment but is sexy enough to wear out as well. There is a style of a pencil skirt that can be found for every body shape, so make sure you find yourself one. If you are on a heavier side, choose one with thinker, better quality material. Thin ones usually show off every imperfection, and you want to feel great wearing a pencil skirt and not worry about how it looks on you. Even if you are very slim, thicker material will add volume to your body and therefore create more curves. If you are blessed with curves and hips this is a must style for you. I opt for high waist ones that go up to the narrowest area of my mid-section in order to create an hourglass silhouette. I also often wear a slim belt around it to accentuate the waist even more. And lets not forget I have a great tailor near my house. Not everything can fit perfectly off the rack, so do yourself a favour and find a great tailor! Stay tuned for next week to see what I have prepared for you. Ciao!
Ovu sedmicu posvecenu jesenjem trendu suknji i haljina iz sredine proslog veka, zavrsavamo sa jednom pencil suknjom. Pencil suknje su takodje postale popularne sredinom 40tih godina. Ovo je definitivno moj omiljeni model. Nije bas najbolji za moj oblik tela, ali definitivno moj omiljeni. U mom ormaru se krije gomila razlicitih boja, dezena i materijala. Svaka zena treba da ima u svom ormaru bar dve pencil suknje; jednu klasicnu crnu i jednu u jarkoj boji. Crvena je dobar izbor jer je prihvatljiva i za kancelariju ali je dovoljno sexy i za izlazak. Bez obzira na vas oblik tela, postoje razliciti modeli, zato ne odustajte nego se bacite i potragu vase savrsene pencil suknje. Ja nosim iskljucivo pencil suknje visokog struka, i uz tanak kais, dajem iluziju oblina. Takodje imam snajderku blizu mene koju koristim da nekada malo popravi po neki odevni komad koji mi mozda ne stoji savrseno odmah iz prodavnice.  Ovo je poslednji outfit za ovu sedmicu, ali ne zaboravite da me pratite open od nedelje i da vidite sta sam pripremila za vas. Cao!

Aleksandra <3

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…

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…

All Pink in Cinque Terre - Beautiful Italian Coast

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit.  You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns a…

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…
