Recently I have written about different ways to style a summer dress (you can read that post here), but truth be told, I'm not always that creative. Sometimes I want to simplify things and take it be easy. Sometimes I want to get ready in five minutes. When I feel like that, I tend to simply grab my favourite summer dress, a pair of leather sandals and a cute bag. There is nothing new about this outfit, but sometimes you need to rely on your classics. Why not? Fashion isn't just about trying new things all the time, it's about finding joy in putting an outfit together! Fashion is also about wearing things you like and cherishing your favourite clothing items. That's my personal definition anyway. You've seen me wear this cherry print dress many many times. The bag and the sandals are spring purchases, but I've been wearing them non stop, so you must have seen them quite a few times as well. However, sometimes there is nothing wrong in relying on clothing items that just work. Do you agree? I do love a printed dress. Summer is perhaps the ideal time to rock printed dresses. With a printed dress, you don't need many accessories to get noticed. A printed dress is a statement piece on its own. In other words, perfect for those days when you're in a rush or feeling lazy. Not that you shouldn't get more creative if you feel like it? There are many ways to style a cherry print dress. If you want to see other suggestions you can check out this post where I wore this dress with a yellow bag to make it pop even more, or this post where I paired it with an oversize hat and kitten heels to make it more sophisticated and lady like. Here is a similar outfit, but with wedges. If you are the type that loves perky accessories, check out this post where I wore this dress with hand made cat ears.
All of these photographs were taken in Mostar city, Bosnia and Herzegovina. (That's where I'm based, but even I wasn't, I'd probably still enjoy taking photographs here. I've been living here for a while now, but I never seem to get tired of this city. This particular spot is located near to the city's tennis club, where you can also grab something to eat in a really good restaurant. I love this area because I'm a sucker for cypress trees but also because there is a really cute duck family that lives in this stream. If you are planning to visit Mostar, you can check out this post where I wrote my tips for finding perfect photo and Instagram worthy places in Mostar. To make a long story short, here is a short version of my tips for finding great photo locations in Mostar:
1. Look for elevated places, artificial (church tower, buildings etc) or natural (hills, mountains).
2. Visit old city centre (an attractive location mostly because its historical appeal).
3. Seek out bridges (there are so many bridges in Mostar, do visit as many as you possibly can).
4. Stroll by river and creeks (Neretva is the most impressive, but there are other lovely rivers and creeks in this city).
5. Look for historical, cultural or religious buildings (there are plenty of those here!)
6. Take a moment to relax in one of city's parks or in some other green area.
Whatever you do, remember to have fun. As I wrote in my last post, taking photographs is important but so is living in the moment. Perhaps there is a way we can have both? I sure hope so. Tell me, do you have any photography tips? If you take photographs, how do you go about it? If you a fashion blogger/influencer or just somebody who wants to look nice captured on camera, what are your posing secrets? How do you choose your locations? Do you prefer to have your photo taken or to take photographs. It's an interesting topic, isn't it? Moreover, tell me do you have days when you feel like wearing some simple? Do you like print dresses? Do you wear them in the summer? Do you have a favourite dress? Do you often wear dresses? And if your answer is yes....What kind of dresses do you wear most often? It would be fun to know. That would be all for today. I'm currently working on preparing a number of (hopefully informative posts), so I decided to keep this post simple and not too long. Thank you all for visiting and for your lovely comments. Have a fantastic weekend!
