How To Dress Casual But Still Look Feminine? Two Outfits + Streetart Mostar
I'm a big fan of street art, so when I spotted these lovely murals, we just had to stop and take a few photographs. Do you like street art? Do you want to see Mostar's murals? Well, if you do, you have certainly came to a right place. Moreover, if you want, you can also check out my old posts featuring Mostar street art here , here , here and here. So, I had already blogged about Mostar's street art four times! I guess this city has some pretty cool street art and I love showcasing it. Does that mean that I like to pretend I'm a tourist guide? Perhaps it does. Last Summer while I was showing one girl around Mostar, I also showed her a lot of street air and she really loved it. She said this was the beautiful city in this region she had visited so far, and she had visited plenty. Anyway, I do like showing Mostar around. Maybe it is my way of embracing be a tourist in your own city movement? I do believe that no matter how small or big our the city or village we happen to live in, there is always something new to be discovered, as long as we keep our eyes and our hearts open.
Today I would also like to speak a bit about sustainability in fashion. I'm sure you have all heard about it. It's basically a philosophy that aims to make fashion more sustainable and ecologically friendly. There are many things you can do if you want to adopt a more sustainable approach to fashion. One of them is wearing vintage clothes. The other is taking good care of your clothes. You can't shop your closet efficiently, if you don't know how to care for your garments properly. I pride myself on taking good care of my clothes. My shoes get worn out quickly because I do tend to take walks that last forever, but a lot of my clothing items look brand new despite the fact I had them for years and wear them often. I like to take special care of vintage pieces, because there is only as much vintage items left in the world, if you know what I mean. This black midi skirt is a vintage piece. I absolutely love its length and cut. I decided to challenge myself a bit and style it in a casual way.
While I was creating this post, a question came to my mind. How To Dress Casual But Still Look Feminine? I've decided to share two casual but feminine outfits with you today to show that you can dress for comfort but still feel like a woman. I love mixing styles and while androgynous style has its benefits, I do gravitate more toward feminine clothing. Achieving femininity and not compromising of comfort is actually not that hard. Casual style is very open to other influences, and you can bring tons of feminine elements into it. Whatever makes you feel feminine will cut it. After all, it is all about how we feel right? My casual but girly formula is pretty simple: I pair dresses or skirts with sneakers. It is interesting how much difference a pair of shoes can make. If you wear casual shoes such as sneakers, your outfit automatically becomes more feminine. Dresses and sneakers have been my go to combination this Spring and it is something I plan to wear all Summer long.
You know, I think that street art is one of most democratic art forms out there. Anyone can admire it. It also makes for a great background for photography and us fashion bloggers are always in need for that. That might be one of the reasons why I took the photographs I'm about to show to you. This outfit you can see below is something I wore about a month ago, before I had cut my hair, but it is something I still wear when it gets a bit fresh early in the morning or late in the evening. Leggings and a dress is such a simple combination, but it works like a charm. I wore a very similar outfit two years ago (here). I've started sneakers more often lately, and I like it. My significant other is also happy because he is a fan casual dressing. I've even reached for my jogging sneakers, seeing how dad sneakers are so in and all that. My sneakers usually outlive my other pair of shoes, but perhaps now that I've started to wear sneakers more often, my other pairs of shoes will last me longer? Anyway, I quite like how this outfit turned out. How about you? Do you like what you see?

Still, if I had to pick a favourite from these two outfits, it would have to be the leopard print blouse and vintage black skirt outfit. I had this leopard print blouse for ages, bought it in Terranova for something like two euros and I still wear it frequently. I do love animal print. Right now, my personal style is all over the place. Just when I though I had it figured it, that it was all about vibrant colours and patterns, I started gravitating towards a more neutral palette. Go figure. What about your personal style? Is it something that is still evolving or have you found a style that works best for you? Tell me, do you like the street art I've just shared with you? What is your favourite piece? I would have to go with the white fox, because it reminds me of Asian mythology, and that is certainly one fascinating subject. I do like all of them, because they are all unique in their way. If you've followed my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that when it comes to my personal art, I'm always trying new things. So, it is with art I love. When it comes to art, there are so many different styles I admire. What kind of art do you like?
How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels.
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look. If you don't feel comfortable en…
Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges.
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays as intensely bec…
One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.
What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces. If you'r…
