Today I’m doing a post quite different from anything I posted before. I did not initially plan to do it. I had brought the camera to take pictures of the nature, but we ended up taking a few outfit pictures as well.
I love the city and everything the city brings, but just the same, I love the nature as well. I find it’s important to have a balance between the two. I believe everyone would benefit mentally and physically if they spent some time in nature at least couple of times a month. After all, we are part of it, aren’t we? One of the things I love doing is hiking. I remember fondly of all the times I went hiking with my grandpa in the mountains and hills of Serbia when I was a kid. It’s unbelievable how much nature can relax all your senses. Even if you have little ones, it’s a fun thing to do for all.
Not too long ago I went hiking in Milton area, part of Niagara escarpment. It’s hard to find mountains in Ontario, so this was the closes we could get to.  We ended up hiking for 6 hours, and though I was really sore the next day (muscles I didn’t even know existed), I felt re-energized.I was quite surprised by my dog's energy to do the entire hike with us. He is getting very old and has arthritis on his spine. He has not been able to walk long distances for some time now. But somehow, that day, he did not tire at all and jumped around as if he were young again. Nature definitely did him some good too.
Hiking of course is not a place for fashion. But you can still make your outfit more interesting than just plain sports jacket and leggings. Why not wear a casual cotton button up shirt instead? I went with leggings on the bottom, as I consider them the most comfortable to wear for hikes. On top I wore this amazing Under Armour sports bra. It’s about time that sports companies are coming out with sports bras with cup sizes instead of just S, M, L as options. I find Under Armour to be the best at this. This is their new model that came out at SportsCheck and I love it. It provides support but also gives a nice shape. You can actually even wear it under racer back tops as well. You know those sports bras that flatten your chest? Well this one does not.
As I was not sure how warm or cool it was going to be in the forest, I decided to layer my outfit. I wore a couple of button up shirts: plaid and denim one, both from HM. Sure enough, denim one went into my back pack very quickly, as it was quite warm. A little top knot hairstyle, Ray-Bans which make any outfit cool and Michael Kors watch. Who says you can wear accessories to go hiking? Last but not least, to put the entire outfit together (and also carry my picnic necessities), the gorgeous (faux) leather back pack. It’s meant for the city, but works just as well in the nature, doesn’t it?
As fall is almost here, what better time to go hiking than now? Once the leaves start changing their colours, make sure you go exploring the nature at least one day. You will thank me J . Happy hiking!

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 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…
