Navy & Leather

Dress Vero Moda, leather jacket Zara, fur scarf vintage buy, bag/clutch Ebay, heels Spring, earrings Forever 21, ring Aldo

Taking pictures yesterday was impossible due to the weather. It was cold outside but that would not be a problem if it were not for the wind. The winds were blowing from all directions (at least that's how it felt) and it was impossible to keep hair neat or even keep your clothes (scarves, hats) from blowing away. We tried to do it outside, as true warriors, but lost the battle in the matter of seconds. Just check out one of the pictures below. As we got out, all of a sudden flurries started up as well. We had no choice but to shoot these pictures in the back hallways of a building. They came out ok. And before this starts sounding as if you have just tuned into a weather channel blog, let me stop myself.
Last couple of weeks have been a blurr for me. They flew by because I was sooo busy with too many things on the go. And just when I felt like my days are too occupied, I listened to Elaine Lui from Lainey Gossip about her schedule at the blogger conference Spark Sessions over the weekend (you read about this even in yesteryday's post) and realized I should not complain. I also get that same feeling when I talk to my friends with kids. My life is still not that busy after all :). 
Now, finally, back to the outfit. This outfit I wore the first day of the Spark Sessions conference. I never got to snap any picutres of my outfits on the day of for several reasons, but I will reproduce both outfits this week for you to see. This gorgeous dress is from Vero Moda I got from Winners for only $35. As for the jacket, I keep on wearing it even though it is getting too cold for it here in Canada. But I just love it that much that I will sacrifice freezing only to be able to wear it (mom, please don't read this part).
And this fur (lets call it) scarf I purchased in a vintage store in the city. Now, I'm not going to pretend that I am against fur. I'm neither against nor for, kind of confused is more like it. After all, I love eating meat and there is no pretending.  I love the fur but I usually chose to buy it from vintage stores. It is cheaper and it is recycling the fashion. I would buy a new piece too, but I have learned that I will for sure research first where the company buys their fur from before I buy it. Some of these places keep their animals caged in such small cages that they can't even move for the duration of their short lives. And as a dog owner and animal lover, I can't be ok with that kind of treatment.
I will end my post here. I'm starting to notice I am getting chatty today. And as my friends best know, when days like this come around, I can talk, and talk and talk. So ladies, have a wonderful week! Ciao!

Danasnji post, zbog duzine teksta ce biti na zalost samo na engleskom. Nadam se da mi necete zameriti. Sutra nastavljamo opet. 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…

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…
