I say it’s never too early to start planning your trip wardrobe. Especially when the destination involves one of the best Italian cities and New Years. When going on trips like these, I always feel like I can explore and experiment with fashion. So to take full use of it, you have to start planning soon! (This sounds a bit, as if I’d be planning a Fashion Week. Though it sure feels like it…) In this spirit, I made a special Pinterest board (yes, I’m now also a Pinterester, you can find and follow me here) dedicated to my Rome NY week. Also, you can find few ideas down below. (I can see my suitcase exploding already…)
Traveling: tracksuit & jumper / onesie, slipons, leather jacket, big scarf Festive look: sparkly midi skirt, boots, jumper Paryting: Sparkly mini dress, black tights, ankle booties, oversize coat, big scarf Shopping: slipons, leather leggings, oversize jumper, oversized coat / blazer, big scarf Lunch: oversized coat, over the knee boots, big flannel shirt with statement necklace, beanie
Punce, tokrat me prihajamo na svoj račun! V ljubljanskem Cirkusu se bo od 19. decembra naprej vsak tretji petek v mesecu odvijala super stylish zabava pod naslovom Fashionista, ki je definitivno ni vredno zamudit. In kaj obleči za tako “fensi” priložnost? Jaz ostajam pri klasikah – visoke petke, rdeča šminka in bleščeč nakit. Kaj pa ve? Fotk stylingov in žura ne pozabit označit z uradnim hashtagom #cirkusfashionista.
It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday and we embarked on a short trip to Vienna. The city is gorgeous in this time of year and hides the true Christmas spirit inside. Streets sparkle in lights wherever you turn, it smells just like Christmas. We got so lucky with the weather it’s almost silly. Now, let’s do the math. 5 girls, sunny weather, picture perfect city and surroundings… I think conclusion is clear: Photo overload!
Here comes again, the impossible mission of finding great Christmas gifts. Where to start looking? When picking presents I usually decide right away what kind of gift I’m looking for. To sparkle ideas, I came up with 4 categories. Let me know in the comments how you search for your Christmas presents!
Personalized jewelry: It’s special, because it’s personalized. Unlike with tailored Facebook and Google ads, when it comes to gifts, we actually appreciate if the other person knows what we like.
– Pandora: charm bracelets are the ultimate, but so underestimated gift. Think about it. First year you get the bracelet base, next a charm and then, you’re basically set for life. I’m surprised people don’t think of it more often…
– Name necklaces: From appearance on Carrie’s neck in SATC, name plate necklace is no doubt the ultimate gift.
Useful gifts: Yes, gifts can be useful too! Think about what the other person needs or even ask him about his near-future shopping plans. Easy way to make your gift even more appreciated.
From 2015 planner, new earbuds to bigger things, like digital camera, perhaps that tote your bff has been eyeing past months or even winter sneakers that always come handy in snowy days. The ultimate gift nowadays can definitely be external phone battery – we all hate dead phones!
Girly gifts: Gifts for girls are kinda easy and if you know at least something about her, you can’t go wrong. If you don’t know exactly what she wants, keep it simple and “generic”. Applicable especially for the girls you don’t know that well (yet). (Another advice: don’t gift your girlfriend a piece of soap every year, unless she specifically asks for it. Otherwise… She’ll get the wrong idea. Just saying)
Think about natural cosmetics: fun bath ball, good body lotion, hair mask. Anything that will make her even prettier and feeling relaxed. Pick a yummy smelling candle – always a winner. If she’s a tea or coffee lover find a pot of special mix, I’m sure she’ll soon invite you over to try it out together.
Funny gifts: They can be a hit or a deal breaker, so be a little careful when picking those. Internal jokes, funny memories, better you know the other person, easier you’ll find something to make him/her laugh.
A month from today, I’ll be sitting on train again, going towards very familiar destination, counting down the hours until I reached beloved city. My New Year’s plans are set, we’re going back to Rome!
Told you I can’t leave this city for long. Besides, I’ve never been in winter time. Every excuse counts, right? Me and Eva are going back for another week of Italian dreams (and parties). Excitement is real and growing, so expect few Rome-oriented posts even before the departure!
