It’s already been a month since my trip to Portugal, and I’m finally sharing some outfits and pictures from this beautiful country. I got a little overwhelmed starting to write this post. There is so much I want to share but at the same time, I also just want to leave you to enjoy the pictures without too much noise.

If you follow me on Instagram or you read some of my posts leading up to this short vacation, you know that this was a last minute trip. I kind of love those the most. There isn’t too much planning, too much worrying, too much excitement that doesn’t let you sleep at night, and so on. I also have such a case of FOMO when I travel, that I end up exhausting myself and those with me, trying to make it to every stop on my to-visit list. I have been learning over the years to take it easy and not visit every single must-see location. Sometimes the beauty of travel is just being there and soaking up the energy of the city and the country.

This is exactly what I did this time around. I didn’t look up any sights ahead of time. I didn’t consult any traveler guide or blog. I just decided to go and see where the journey takes me. With that in mind, I also decided to pack really lightly and mix and match my pieces. I ended up bringing a pair of jeans that I travelled in, pair of Coulotte pants I am wearing in this post, three blouses, leather jacket, a dress and 4 pairs of shoes. This is where I over packed. Shoes are always my weak spot. I did wear them all, but I could have just as easily gone without my ankle strap stiletto sandals. The streets of Lisbon or other towns we visited, were not built with intention of wearing stilettos hehehe.
This is the outfit I wore first night in Lisbon. Colottes and top are both from Zara. I wore these block heel velvet sandals from Forever 21 because I realized very quickly that my stilettos would not cut it. And going out in flats has never been my thing. The sandals were sturdy enough but another little problem I encountered with those beautiful cobble streets were worn out, fairly slippery stones. But this is in no way a complaint! I would take those streets over regular asphalt any time. They are just beautiful.

Our apartment was in a perfect location, just north of Praça do Comércio and just east of the Castle. Our first night there, we walked around and enjoyed a beautiful almost summer like weather and atmosphere. Every corner of Lisbon is just gorgeous. We wanted to have dinner but wanted to avoid touristy places. We walked little further away from the crowds and found a small little joint with amazing food. I would love to share the name but I didn’t write it down anywhere and lost their business card. The food was amazing and I especially enjoyed the octopus salad. This was a start of a seven day binge eating spree for me and beginning of my newly found food FOMO.
More outfits and posts will follow soon.

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…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!

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…
