How To Mix Prints - Ethnic & Stripes

Skirt and sweater Forever 21, boots Aldo, bag Danier, jacket Zara, faux fur infinity scarf Chapters

You probably already know if you follow my blog, that I love mixing prints. I lover the effect it creates and the unlimited options you get to play up your wardrobe. If you want to try out this trend but you are not sure what to do, start off with something easy and safe. I find that stripes and polka-dots are the easiest print to incorporate with others. First think about mixing prints that are in similar shades. Try it out in front of the mirror and see how you feel. Just be brave, getting used to new things is not always instantaneous. Some other tested and true options are stripes and plaid or tartan, stripes and leopard, mixing different check patterns but again keep the latter in the same colour family. In Monday`s post I mixed checks, stripes and polkadots. Today I opted for stripes and ethnic print or world traveler as they now call it.  I challenge you to try this out. Make sure to let me know if you were successful in taking yourself out of your comfort zone. You can leave a comment on my blog, email me, tweet, tag me on Facebook or Instagram. Looking forward to it! Ciao!

Ako pratite moj blog znate vec da obozavam da mesam razlicite dezene u odeci. Ako zelite da se isprobate u ovome ali niste sigurni tacno sta se uklapa jedon s drugim, dacu vam nekoliko vec isprobanih primera. Po mom misljenju, pruge i tufne su definitvno dva od najlaksih printova za kombinovanje. Pocnite prvo sa mesanjem printova ali u bojama slicnih nijansi i bojame koje pripadaju istoj grupi. Isprobavajte vase kombinacije ispred ogledala i vidite kako se osecate u njima. Nemojte gubiti lako hrabrost jer navika na promene nije cesto momentalna. Mozda ce vam trebati vise vremena da se usavrsite. Ako vec ne zelite da eksprerimentisete i zelite da se koristite samo vec isprobanim primerima, onda su tu uvek kombinacija pruga i karo dezena, pruga i leopard printa, razlkiciti karo dezeni jedni s drugima ali da pak budu u slicnim nijansama. Pogledajte kako sam ja takodje pomesala karo, pruge i tufnice u outfitu ove sedmice. Drage moje dajem vam sada jedan zadatak, a to je da se isprobate u mesanju printova (ako to vec uveliko ne radite) i izadjete malo iz svoje svakodnevne i sigurne uniforme. Obavezno mi javite ako vam je poslo za rukom i kako ste se osecale.  Mozete mi se javiti putem Tvitera, Facebooka, Instagrama, ostaviti komentar na blogu ili pak poslati email. Jedva cekam! Cao!

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…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.
Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs lo…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
