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?
