Yesterday, my blogger girls and I were at a reception at the beautiful residence of British embassy. Our hosts for that night were her Majesty`s Ambassador Michael Davenport and Elle (Serbia issue) magazine. For the first time the whole issue of Elle is dedicated to one country - Great Britain. We also had chance to see the premier of "I married a Serb" movie (author and director: Anberin Pasha) , which is a story about five women from Britain, who where married for love and moved to Serbia. Very touching story with a great dose of British sense of humor.
More than great evening, that`s for sure, thanks to Elle&British embassy!

I was wearing a gorgeous Software dress (from our famous designer Dragana Ognjenovic -you can see the green version from the runway here) which is a part of her new collection for this summer! Matched with silver high heels, little bit of jewelry and lightly picked up hair, i was ready in a snap! ;)
Hope you will like it!

Back From Boston

 Today it is back to work after vacation...boo.  Patrick and I went to Boston with one of my best college girlfriends and her husband and we had a great time.  Boston is such a pretty city, I felt like I was on a movie set the entire time.  We packed a lot into three days...
Oh yes, you are seeing correctly, that is a poncho I am sporting.  I would have paid double the asking price of that glorified trash bag it came in so handy, how did I not pack a rain jacket?  

I had to include this picture because behind us is the balcony where the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time.  That gives me chills.  Anyone who loves history must have Boston on their "to see" list.  So much packed into such a small area, it is hard to wrap your head around it.
When I go on vacation I am completely okay with playing the part of target tourist- map in hand/camera hanging around my neck.  I am thankful I married someone who doesn't mind being dragged into some cheesy pictures.  (Off the subject...how big was the crush I had on Woody back in day?)
I know you don't come to H&H to see blown up pictures of the Cheers cast.  Unfortunately, I don't have the pictures most readers would prefer to see- the shops of Newbury Street, the Brownstones, the quaint restaurants.  We saw all of that, I just wasn't snapping away at the moment.  But I do have one picture that might interest you.  I did find a little time in the midst of all the touring and eating to meet up with two of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie for SabbeSpot and Lindsay of EverythingLEB.  The last time I got to see these ladies was in NYC so we had lots to catch up on.  It was nice.  So nice.  And I got to meet Remi, can you spot him?
Even though Boston was truely amazing and I would 100% recommend a visit to anyone, it was the first time we had left Henry and we thought about him the entire time.  I knew when I saw this little patriot hat it was something my little man would need for future days.  You are going to have to take my word it looks cute on because getting him to sit still long enough to capture on film proved to be fruitless.  Here is the best I could do, half way off...
I can't wait to go back with him on day.

Sometimes i have those silly ideas, that you will feel better in the summer if you  wear light pants and loose shirt, and guess what? I was wrong! This is not an island, there is no wind, i can`t see beautiful sea and my yacht is nowhere. So i will stick to my shorts and mini dresses, `till this hot weather treats us with some nice rain! ;)
Despite the temperature i spent lovely day with Branislava, Jelena and Jovana, by the river and we survived somehow!
Huge thanks to Branislava for  making these, more than perfect photos, we got that Italian vibe! ;)
Can`t wait to hear your opinion!

Enjoy, it`s Friday! ;)

 p.s. press and play  ....

 In one of the previous posts, i showed you a sneak peek of my new watches, which i got thanks to the lovely people from Urban watch (you can find them here) and i immediately start thinking how can i combine these two beautiful colors. This is what i`am up to at the end. Totally Isabel Marant inspired look, short leather boots on a bare legs, with tiny pink shorts and floral loose shirt, and a little bit of accessories. Messy hair. End of story.
Tell me, tell me, tell me, what do you think about it?

Happy 1st day of summer! ;)

p.s. top three tracks from the Isabel Marant SS/2011 runway, to get in that 80`s  groove, play it:  1 / 2 / 3 ! ;)

Tiered Dress

I have had numerous requests for the source of the dress I wore for Henry's Baptism and the Nursery Reveal (yes it is the same dress, oh yes it was worn twice in 3 days).
 I am sad to say it is Ann Taylor Loft but I don't see it on their website any longer.  The item number on the receipt is 11005148 if that helps at all.  Thank you for the compliments!
