Today I’m sharing with you my second outfit from Chicago. I will not share all of the outfits I wore. Honestly, we were too busy walking, having fun, laughing, enjoying the views and taking selfies (hehehe), that taking outfit pictures was not a priority. Also, as I already said in my previous post, I had not packed well enough for this trip so the outfits were not, in my opinion, the most photogenic for the blog.

This outfit today I wore for a day of shopping and eating. I wanted to wear something that comes off easily when trying on clothes in the changerooms. There is nothing worse than when you wear a cute but layered outfit that takes forever to take off. You end up getting tired from just that and it ruins your shopping day. I also needed comfortable shoes as it was another long day of walking, so I opted for these black and white H&M sneakers. I will be honest. I have been looking for black sneakers with white soles for some time. However, as I wear mostly heels, I did not want to spend $150 on a pair of sneakers that I would just wear on occasion. I came across this pair in H&M just before my trip for just $40 and thought they were perfect. They were comfortable as well.
I paired them with theses imitation leather pants or sweatpants I got back in March when I was visiting Serbia. I bought it in a store called New Yorker of which I have never heard of here in North America, so I cannot tell you much about it. It’s similar to Forever 21 for example. I love sweatpants and these ones, because of the material, are dressy enough to wear out in public. They are very cute with sneakers but can look really hot with heels. Pair it with a feminine blouse for a softer look.
I wore it with a cropped top but I pulled them high so they looked like they were high waist pants. They are actually intended to be worn more relaxed and lower on waist, but I love the fact that the style gives me options on how to wear them.
So this concludes my brief talk about Chicago trip. It was fun walking the Michigan Avenue, visiting the Bean at night, shopping, taking the boat tour, getting lost in the city, walking a marathon in heels looking for fun places to eat and drink, enjoying the pier, talking to people, riding the train and so much more.

Oh talking about the train (I’m sorry but I have to share this), Chicago is very unique. Chicago transportation system is mainly made up of trains, not subways, trains. These trains for the most part are above ground so depending where you are it may be passing you over head as you are walking or driving on the street. What is more interesting, in the downtown area or the loop, some of the lines pass between the buildings, the high-rises as well as the residential buildings (as you can see in some of the pictures below). And they are not very far from them at all. You could be sitting in your office and the train passes by you just couple of meters away. They are also pretty loud. It’s not necessarily the most appealing view but it definitely makes Chicago unique.

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…

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.

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…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
