A Maxi Kind Of Day

  
 
As I was going over my blog and the outfits I posted, I was realizing that so far most of the outfits I posted were more on the casual side. I guess one of the reasons is because all of the outfits I posted were exactly what I wore on that specific day when the pictures were taken. This actually goes well with what my intention was for this blog, and that is to give ideas to a regular person. Ideas for outfits that anyone can wear. I absolutely love over the top looks found in the fashion magazines and a lot of fashion blogs, but unfortunately, most of the time they don’t go hand in hand with my day to day life. And I am sure the same applies to most of you.
Back to this outfit. This was a going out outfit for me. I finally found a maxi skirt that looks good on my body. I don’t have a lot of hips, my waist is pretty high up and on top of that I have a heavy top. Due to this maxi skirts are a hard style for me to pull off without looking 20lb heavier. I tried many different ones and the result was always the same. I found this amazing skirt and was ecstatic that it fit me perfectly. The cut of the skirt is just right for me and there are not too many pleats to add bulk to my mid-section. I also love that it can be worn dressed up or dressed down, or somewhere in the middle, like my outfit here. I already have several looks in my head how I can wear it. I am sure this skirt will appear many more times on this blog. I wore it here with a chambray shirt to make the look a little bit more casual. I was not going to a fancy place so I didn’t want to be overdressed. Do you have a specific piece of clothing that you have been in love with but is a hard style for you to pull off? How have you dealt with this? Ciao!

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…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

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 MontrĂ©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
