From Home

Hello to all! Long time no see.. Excuse my lack of updating and thank you for being patient with me! I've had a crazy last two weeks traveling home from Paris (managing to pack my life into two suitcases might I add) , attending a wedding, celebrating christmas, and now I'm in Chicago for the weekend. 

It feels nice to be home but I am already missing Paris like crazy, still dreaming in French, and continue to say "Pardon" to everyone I accidentally run into on the street. Also, where is my 2 euro wine?

Anyway, I can tell you that my style definitely changed while I was in Paris, as I think you all have noticed. I'm very content without the fussiness of overbearing trends that I used to try and implement on the reg.. I prefer toned, elegant, and chic.. with my little touch of grunge of course.

I do love that the faux fur "snood" is popular this season.. it reminds me of the classic fur stoll of the great years passed, and makes every outfit feel a little more luxe. My beautiful Moschino belt was a gift from my boyfriend that I've been lusting for for quite some time.. I think it's quite lovely and looks wonderful cinched around my black A-Line coat as well.

If I don't get a chance to post again before the New Year, I just want to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday! This last year running my blog has been a dream come true because of all of your thoughtful comments, kind words, and continuous support.. from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU ALL. I can't wait to see what the new year has in store for my blog, and of course for you ! (PS: To all my readers that have commented on my blog, every post, since day one.. please know that I do recognize it, and appreciate it more than I could express.. Y'all are the best !)

Anyway, I apologize for the tedious read today.. I just had to get that all off of my chest!

Winter Travels

Confession.. I am kind of running out of ideas on how to look cute in the cold. I'm always on the go.. walking through the city, exploring new places, and traveling. I tend to stick to a uniform of my favorite black swing coat, a chunky knit scarf, and hat of some kind.

I try to keep it as chic as possible, and avoid the Uggs (even though, let's be honest, they are pretty practical traveling through the winter.) 

The rest of the photos are scenic shots of my travels through Zagreb, Croatia, and Ljubljana, Slovenia, this past weekend. I had an amazing trip and I want to travel much more throughout Eastern Europe... what a magnificent and beautiful area of the world!

I can't believe I'll be leaving Europe next week.. Time has truly flown by.

I have so many coats that it's becoming a problem.. but I just can't help it.. I hate wearing the same one everyday! I found this vintage (faux-fur, of course) jacket in Chicago right before I left for Paris. I happen to think it fits the aesthetic of the city perfectly, and it dresses up a pair of casual blue jeans and leather booties quite nicely.

I'm very excited because this weekend I'll be jetting off to Croatia to visit a friend. We'll also be visiting Vienna, too.. for some much needed Christmas spirit. My family is originally from both Croatia and Austria, so it will be amazing to see my heritage up close and personal. I cannot wait!! Look forward to some amazing photos, because I'll be doing outfit posts/ and scenic ones while I'm there!
