Took a trip to Versailles the other day. As far as Baroque castles go, this one is by far the most grandiose and luxurious one…however, not really my thing. And don’t get me started on the hoards of tourists!
But the gardens are absolutely magnificent and worth spending the day there. You can row a boat, visit the Trianons and marvel at the splendor and vastness.
As far as fashion goes, if you are visiting in the summer do not wear a long skirt and do wear espadrilles (they are my comfy/stylish choice of the summer)!
Lately, fashion blogs have been flooded with pink suits of all shades, styles and combined with various accessories. Although the style looks daring and interesting on pretty women, what happens when a middle-aged man decides to follow the trend?
Coming out of the metro in Paris the other day, I spotted this guy. It is actually hard to tell whether he follows trends or maybe one of the girls copied his style and it stuck.
What I absolutely love about the apartment buildings in Paris are the long windows and narrow balconies. Although these balconies can’t be used from much-like having a cup of coffee-they are nevertheless a welcome addition to take a peak at the world down below you. This is the view from my balcony.

I moved to Paris for the next two months and I have been so overwhelmed with everything around me that I couldn’t decide what to write about. You would think that Paris would automatically be inspirational for a fashion blog, but it kind of had the opposite effect-too much of a good thing! 🙂
Well, now I’ve settled in and am really enjoying this truly magnificent city! I must say that the women here are exceptionally beautiful, classy and well-dressed- inspiration from all sides! And there is always something fun to do. If you happen to have a free sunny afternoon here is a suggestion what to do….
You should start at the omnipresent Eiffel Tower and walk down the park. Do not miss an opportunity to take a spin on the carrousel. It is so much fun! (do look outside coz you will get sick, honestly this thing is faster than you think ;))
Cross the Seine and take a walk on the other side. There are nice benches to take a rest and appreciate the scenery.
Draw on a wall…
Play a board game… (I won :))
Pose as Jefferson….
Buy a book…
Then cross Pont Neuf and marvel at the Notre Dame cathedral.
Voila, a perfect sunny afternoon!

Yesterday I found my grandma’s collection of bags from the 60′ and 70’s. Let me tell you my grandma had style, and each bag came with matching shoes and gloves (which sadly don’t fit me). For last night I chose the white bag to match my white skirt! In the next few posts, I’ll try to show the other bags as well!
On Sunday I visited the most famous and biggest flea market in Zagreb, called Hrelić. It is a lot of fun since it is very lively and you can buy literally anything- from books, pots, bikes to clothes and accessories. The only two things you need are change and the patience to rummage through piles of stuff. I bought this colorful skirt and a cool vintage watch that I paired up with more modern items such as the white sneakers and a denim shirt.
Last week Zagreb hosted the annual Animafest, which is a competition film festival for animated movies. I had a chance to see this amazing animated movie called Approved for Adoption by Jung who retells the story of his Korean origins and the adoption into a Belgian family, and I strongly recommend that you see it. I cried like a baby. You can watch the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTz4nWpL5DI
That day I wore comfortable baggy pants, paired with even more comfortable wedges. The cardigan was made by my grandma! 🙂
