Moving to Scotland

Hey everyone,

so last September I have officially moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to attend the University of Edinburgh. I have been here for about six months now and am in love with the city. Although leaving Croatia to move to the UK sounded scary at first, 6 months into it, I am happier than ever. From exploring the gorgeous city, to the excitement of being a fresher and making new friends, I am so happy I got to experience it.  

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photographs so far. These include photos taken when walking down the Royal Mile (1), one of my favorite streets in Edinburgh, Princess St (2) - a street known as a shopping destination in Edinburgh and my favorite location - Arthur's seat (3,4,5), a mountain only 20 minutes / 30 minutes away from the city center and a perfect get-away from the reality. 


Hopefully, you like them as much as I do.

Loads of love,

Mia

Hi again

I’ve been interested in fashion and in art as long as I can remember, and although many wouldn’t agree, I find both being similar, if not the same. Fashion impacts us, it makes us feel, it enables us to express ourselves, just as art does.

I created this blog about three years ago when everyone got into fashion blogging and all of a sudden we wanted to become recognised and work in a field we before thought wasn’t possible. I kept it up on and off for about a year and a half, I thought posting outfits of the day and week was what people wanted to see, but in the midst of a crowd I felt lost, not standing out, not being myself, not making a change. So I took a break. Not only a break from fashion, but of writing, which I always found to be a passion. I have recently watched the Future of Fashion series by Alexa Chung on Vogue and it reminded me of what I loved so much about fashion. I was once again filled up with the emotion and ambition I had years ago to try again, even if I couldn’t succeed. Today, I spent thinking about what I would want to share in my blog and I’ve realised there is so much more than a simple outfit of the week. I have realised one of my favourite things is being inspired, and I would love to share those with you. By being a typical 19 year old, browsing through tumblr, I’ve realised there is something so effortless about vintage photographs, clothing, movies, or anything past-inspired.  Looking at the following photos inspires me. And as I am off to watch Scarface, I wanted to say I am glad to be back and hope that this time I’ll stay. Because it’s so much more about being recognised, it’s about sharing my passions with you and hopefully you can share yours with me.

Loads of love,

Mia

Portugal - Instagram diary


Hey everyone,

so I have done one of these entries earlier this year and called it "Greece - Instagram diary" (you can read it here). As well as I, you guys liked the idea of me showing you the breathtaking and fun photos I took on my trip instead of just babbling on about how amazing my trip was.

And as you know, I am obsessed with Instagram haha. You can follow me here - @mmiaxx if you haven't already :) I follow back.

Anyhow, I had an amazing time with my entire class as this was a graduation trip. We spent a full week exploring Portugal staying three nights in Lisbon and three nights in Estoril. Not only did we get to explore this beautiful country, we got to hang out with the locals, the tourists and one of my favorite parts - see what it has to offer besides the typical touristy attractions. Not to forget, we got to swim in the ocean which was such an amazing experience!

What I love most about visiting a new city, or country, is not only discovering the shiny and exaggerated parts, but experiencing the life of the city/country. Having seen the positive and the negative parts I have gathered a lot of knowledge and am glad to say I would come back to visit any day.

So, without further adieu, here is my Instagram diary of the trip to Portugal :)















I hope you liked the pictures as much as I did. I have definitely made great memories during this trip.

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - AUTUMN


Hey guys,

to start of I just started my last year of high school and I'm both a nervous wreck and super excited. I cannot wait to be leaving for college next year and I do hope I will continue blogging and share with you all my experiences.
Since my 18th birthday, which was about two weeks ago, nothing much has changed, obviously haha, but I have decided to try and become a better and happier version of myself. Having that in mind I started doing Yoga and Pilates, which I wanted for such a long time! Also, I really am trying to find time for blogging but my schedule has been so full it's crazy.

Anyhow, the weather is quite nice here in Zagreb, Croatia and I was actually able to wear shorts the day before yesterday. This outfit I wore was one of my favorite during colder summer evenings. I love the simplicity and the color shades as well as my new Zara boots with which I am currently obsessed with! They're so comfortable and easy to style, it's crazy! I can literally wear them with anything.

I hope you like the outfit :)










I was wearing:
shirt: Zara
shorts: Mango

OOTD - birthday


Hey everyone,

just to let you know it was my 18th birthday on the 5th of September!!!!! I am so excited / nervous to be 18, haha. Also I just recently came back from my trip to Portugal. I was there for a week with my entire class and we had so much fun. The weather was amazing and the place breathtaking! I will do a full on post about being 18 and how I have spent the entire day as well as how my trip to Portugal went, but for now I will just show you the outfit I wore.

I wore so many different outfits during the trip but this one is one of my favorites. It's very simple and such a cute summer outfit. I had a blast spending a week in Portugal with all my friends and cannot wait to show you all the beautiful photos I took.

Also, as you might already know I share all of my photos and experiences on my Instagram which is @mmiaxx. So if you would like, please follow me and I promise I will follow you back.

OOTD - ALL ZARA

Hey everyone,

as you might already know I am obsessed with Zara, it is my all time favorite brand and have therefore decided to do an all Zara outfit of the day. This look/outfit I have picked out is what I normally wear on a daily bases and what I have decided to wear to town today. Since the weather keeps constantly changing I need something which will keep me warm, but not too much. Also, as it was raining the past few days I threw on my favorite new boots I got just a couple of days ago. They are perfect for rainy yet warm autumn days. My style is pretty simple, I love casual, comfortable yet stylish looks and I think this outfit brings that across perfectly. 

I am so excited it will soon be autumn as I cannot wait to wear autumn clothes. I love to wear jackets and trench coats and style them with different pieces and scarfs. But until that time comes, I will try to enjoy the last days of summer and show you more summer looks that I love to wear.








I was wearing:
T-shirt: Zara
pants: Zara
boots: Zara

I hope you like the look. Feel free to comment, I read them all. :) 

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - summer paradise

Hey everyone,

to start with I apologize I haven't been active in almost a month. I spent this time with my family at the seaside, relaxing, swimming and getting tanned. It was such a relief after the stressful school year. This time around I am a senior and I'm too scared to even think about it. Last year of high school is both nerve-racking and very exciting! So with all the things I will have to do this year, I will do my best to stay active and blog.

Now on to the outfit, unlike now in Zagreb, the weather was beyond beautiful! Sunny and warm, almost every day. This particular outfit I love because it's very causal, summery yet stylish. I was able to go on coffee or just take a walk without worrying I'm either over-dressed or under-dressed.







 

I was wearing:
top: Forever 21
shorts: Zara
shoes: Converse All Star
sunglasses: H&M

Once again, sorry for the late update and I promise from now on I'll blog regularly :) Thank you for reading my blog and commenting!

Much love,

Mia
