A Carrie Bradshaw Moment

Skirt H&M Conscious Collection, top unknown, bag unknown (Winners)

Do you ever watch TV shows or movies, love the glamorous clothes the characters wear, and just wish you could do it too? Do you have a bunch of dresses and skirts, or trousers, or even that over the top coat that just sits in your closet collecting dust? We all do. We buy these amazing, glamorous pieces that we never wear or maybe, just maybe get to wear once to some special event. What a shame! Those items are the ones you want to show off the most, yet only get to wear once, or never at all. This of course does not apply to those of you who go to a lot of high glamour events. But those of us who go to regular parties, go to bars with our girlfriends, quiet date nights with our significant others, not so glamorous kids birthdays, and so on; well, we don’t get to wear these special items often.
Canada is also a very casual country. I always find that when I travel back home to Serbia or anywhere in Europe, I get to dress up more. Get more daring. But when I’m back home in Canada, I find myself pulling more casual looks. Yes, we all want to stand out, but we don’t want to “scream” that we are different.
Having said that, I have those days when I get the urge to wear a specific item. Then, I don’t care what the event is, I just wear it regardless. And why not? Even if we get those negative comments such as“Aren’t you a little overdressed?” and so on, we should not care. What’s wrong with dressing up? We could all use a bit more glamor and fun, flamboyant outfits in our lives.
This was the case for me couple of weeks ago when I wore this skirt.
I bought this beauty back in March I believe, when the last H&M conscious collection came out. I was in love!!!! I have been looking for something like this (in my price range of course) for a long time, but could not seem to find exactly what I wanted. I even contemplated having one made for me. But when this beauty came out, I was hooked. The material, the way it flows, the colour and the fit. They were just perfect. Perfect!
Well, needless to say I could not wait to wear it for the first time. I would put it on around the house, just to try it on and look at it in the mirror, but I had no weddings or dressy events in my calendar this summer. Time was passing by and this beauty was in my closet, just hanging. That’s not what it was made to do. As I said, 2 weeks ago I finally got to wear it. A friend of mine was celebrating her birthday. It was not a big affair. Just a very small group of us got together on Ward Island (Toronto Islands – a must see and explore if you visit the city), had dinner in a more casual restaurant, walked around the island and took a ferry back to mainland. We went to a friend’s patio after and had some more drinks and cake. Nothing fancy, but just a group of friends getting together. I had not planned to photograph this outfit. It was a celebration and I didn't want to bring my camera and harass someone to snap pictures of me for the blog. It was not about me, the day was about my friend. But we still very quickly snapped a few Iphone pics (and one selfie of course) so I decided to share with you here. I just wish I had taken a quick video to show you how beautifully it moves. 
I had parked my car close to the Toronto Waterfron and had to walk down to water taxy station. This is when I had my Carrie Bradshaw moment! The weather was hot but there was a light breeze. As I walked the streets of Toronto, the breeze was moving the skirt around and it looked even more beautiful. Remember those scenes when Carrie is running on the streets of NYC in one of her big dresses and how they flow? I felt like that for a moment. I received so many compliments from women as I walked, that it put a smile on my face. Not because I needed compliments, but there is just something about that moment when a total stranger takes the time to give you kinds words or appreciate the outfit you are just so in love with. Don’t you think?
Well to all of you out there, take out your favourite, most glamorous items this weekend and head out with your friends, or whoever, and have fun in them. Stroll around your city and have your Carrie moment. Get carried away! (hahah sorry, I know it’s cheesy and overused, but I just had to use that line)

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…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Jeans Topshop, slides H&M, bag Louis Vuitton, lipstick Mac All Fired Up
Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…

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.
