East Coast Road Trip to Savannah - Off the Sholder Top & Cutoffs

Shorts OneTeaspoon, off the sholder top bought in Mexico (no name), scarf Winners, earrings unknown

Howdy friends! Summer is slowly coming to an end and I have still not finished sharing with you outfits and pictures of my road trip through East Coast USA. I guess in a way I’m procrastinating so that I get to enjoy and reminisce of my travels for a longer period of time.
Next stop on the road trip was Savannah, Georgia. Well, after Miami we stopped for a day at the Jacksonville Beach but continued straight to Savannah that same evening. I didn’t really take any pictures of Jacksonville Beach. It was just a beach town, but compared to everything we saw before, Jacksonville Beach kind of wasn’t as exciting. Oh, how easily we get spoiled, right?
Savannah was quite a surprise for me. I didn’t research it at all before going. I just heard that it is a must see city on the east coast. I chose to be surprised, and surprised I was.
Being of Easter European descent and having lived in Canada half of my life, this was my very first exposure to a real Southern (USA) city and culture. My only exposure before this was through Hollywood, ahahah.
We arrived late in the evening and I was first mesmerized by the long alleyway streets. The trees are so old and big, it was beautiful to see them. The streets were dimly lit but that added to their beauty. The trees are all covered with (what I learned while visiting swamps in New Orleans) Spanish moss which creates these eerie shadows on the streets. It’s quite a sight. While riding around the town just to check it out before heading off to bed, we stumbled upon the waterfront and I was very pleasantly surprised. I have a thing for cobblestone streets and old, old buildings. Even if they look a little dungy, the thought of the history behind them makes them very endearing to me.
The next day we spent riding our bikes around town, taking trolley rides to learn a bit of history of this beautiful old town, ate some very heavy southern comfort food and just enjoyed the sights. It was a wonderful time and if you are visiting east coast, do make sure to stop and visit this gem of East Coast. What I particularly loved was that there were no sky scrapers. The city is full of Suares and roundabout intersections. It is extremely pedestrian friendly. It is hot and humid, so make sure to dress accordingly. To behonest, I’m still quite puzzled how the local food can be so heavy considering such hot climate. What I also found interesting was how many different types of churches I saw. I have never seen more churches in one city then I did in Savannah. One interesting fact, if you watched and loved the movie Forrest Gump, you may like to know that you can see the bench used in the filming of the movie. It’s not located in the Chippewa Square where the scenes are filmed, but has been moved to the Savannah History Museum. You can still take touristy pictures in the Chippewa Square just maybe standing up.
So if you are looking to experience some southern culture while vising US, Savanah is definitely the place to be.
As for my outfit, I felt like wearing my Mexican off the sholder top. Shorts were a great option too for the bike ride. As for the headscarf…well you already know I love wearing those. They are also just very useful on sunny days. The material of this scarf is silk and cotton, so it kept my head cool. I find hats of any kind make my head too hot. I guess it may just come down to preference.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Have a great weekend y’all!

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…

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…

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…
