Locarno: the lake

Front Row Shop dress*/ Dosenbach shoes/ Casio watch/ Vintage clutch   #teenvogue

Happy Friday everyone! As some of you might know I'm already off to a new destination where I'll be staying for a week: Petrovac, Montenegro. I've been quite some times in Montenegro, but I'm always longing to see new places so I'm very excited!

But first.. no, I won't take a selfie, but show you the pictures I shot while our stay in Locarno last weekend! As I already wrote in my previous post: Through mydays.ch I was able to live an experience to which I couldn't say no. We were staying at the Hotel dell' Angelo which was located in the very heart of Locarno, near the Piazza Grande. The hotel was okay, not too bad but also not too good, however, we were staying only for one night so the room which we didn't like wasn't much of a problem. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffet was pretty amazing, so much about that! We even got wine, too bad I don't like it..

After our arrival on mid-Sunday, we headed straight to the center to discover the city. After strolling through some streets and shops we decided to go to the lake in order to shoot some pictures. I quite love them because lately, I've not been shooting in the nature as much as I'd like to - and this pretty much is a great location for that little bit of extra (I mean look at that view.. breathtaking). I admit this might've been an outfit which was a little too much, because people honestly stopped so they could stare at me. Which was weird. But I survived somehow
Lots of pictures are waiting to be published so get ready for some serious spamming in the next few days! Have a lovely weekend and talk to you soon!

Casual but elegant

Today I'm publishing this post from a very unusual location - I'm in Locarno for a short trip. In fact I have never been to south Switzerland before, but when I found this offer on Mydays.ch I knew that it was perfect. Short but sweet as they say. Me and my mum have been discovering the city yesterday which of course includes the lake, Piazza Grande, Madonna del Sasso and Castello Visconteo. Still cannot believe there is such a place in Switzerland because I almost feel like I'm at the sea, there are even palm trees! I love it so much, so get prepared for many posts and get a glimpse of it on my Instagram!

Back to the outfit: You all know my style and it has never been including blazer and those "business-woman" kind of style. However, I received this beautiful blazer from Takko the other day and I fell in love. And I have also never liked peplum on myself, nor have I liked pearl necklaces - seems as if I've been falling for pieces I would've never worn half a year ago. Turns out this outfit is probably the most elegant look I have ever shown on the blog. But I guess a little change is always good, huh?

Keeping it simple?

Sorry for being mia for the few last days - the festival was beyond amazing (check out my instagram to catch a glimpse) and I had so much sleep to catch up on which made it impossible to blog.
My vacation finally started last Friday after our class had a sick party at a friend's house - what a night, I'm telling ya. Oh and I'm really happy to announce that I have finally settled down the plans for the upcoming six weeks! I surprisingly got a job for one week starting today - money which I'm planning to spend all on new pairs of shoes, what else. So after this week of work I'll be heading to Locarno (Tessin, south Switzerland) and straight afterwords I'll be in Montenegro for a week at the beach in order to recharge my energy level. After that, I might be going to Croatia for a weekend and then I'm going to spend the rest of time in Bosnia. I have a pretty good feeling about this year's summer as I personally think it's going to be one of the best, if not the best.

This is an outfit I'd probably be wearing for a night out with my girls, however, I'm still not sure if this is something I like or not. To me, it's pretty simple yet so full of details. I certainly do like that top I got from Takko, it's perfect for summer. My mum's response to this outfit was: "Please Tanja, not that skirt again". What do you think?

Imma be around

So first I was very insecure whether I should pubulish this or not.. somehow it shows off my style perfectly, it's actually something I'm very likely going to wear to the festival I'm attending this weekend, however, I feel like I look so.. fat in these shorts. Yes, I said it. I'm actually not the uncertain kind of girl, but when it comes to shorts and my legs everything changes. And fashion blogging with all the slim girls doesn't really help at all.
Oh and I just want to mention how much I love these hyped shirts and Lovelyshoes (only $10, grab yours asap). Whatever, have a nice weekend guys!

Ancient Egypt

2 more weeks to go until the school year is over, few parties in between, a festival to attend.. I'm literally counting down the hours until the Openair St.Gallen (and the holidays, of course) because I seriously can't wait! Just to mention a few names who will be on the stage: Ellie Goulding, Imagine Dragons, The Black Keys, Dubioza Kolektiv, Left Boy, London Grammar, Tom Odell, Milky Chance, Bastille.. So many amazing acts, oh my. Still need to think about my outfits though.. I'll show them on my Instagram, maybe even here, who knows. So guys, if anybody sees me hanging around, come and say hi!

As I told you I've been for some vintage/thrift/secondhand shopping the other day and I found this awesome top for 2$, so when I got home I knew it was the perfect piece to combine with my acient Egypt skirt from Lovelyshoes! I like how the look turned out since I've been loving white lately.

All black everything

Truth to be told I never thought the day would come on which I wear a maxi skirt. The thing is, until now at least, I thought that maxi skirts were just for slim girls with long legs. It turns out I was wrong, because this one doesn't look bad on me, right? Thank god I found it at H&M last week for 15$ as I can already imagine so many looks with this pretty skirt! And all black everything again, you're probably already bored of me always wearing that.

A few weeks ago a big big parcel reached me and I was so astonished when I found many awesome pieces inside of it, two of them being this shirt and these sunnies. Takko for sure knows how to spoil a girl!
Yesterday I was going for some vintage shopping and oh dear did I find many pieces! I actually wanted to buy some similar tops for the festival I'll be attending next week (Openair St.Gallen) but luckily I found some amazing ones for 2$ each! Speaking of, would you be interested in a festival-guide-kind-of-post?
