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 because it is still not that hot, so a gentle breeze might hide its power. I'm sun paranoid like some, but sometimes we do need to protect ourselves from it. Besides applying sunscreen, there are other ways, and wearing a hat is one of my favourite ones. I find that when I wear a hat, I don't feel nearly as tired after wondering around. I first took notice of this in the summer. I don't mind the heat as much if my head is in the shade and a nice hat can see to that. The rest of my outfit is fairly simple. A pair of jeans, a pastel pink purple sweater, a short coat, a blue bag and a pair of biker boots. This could easily be a winter outfit, if it was a warm winter day. Transition between winter and spring is not always dramatic. Sometimes we need to shed our layers slowly. This was a comfy outfit for strolling Mostar city on a sunny day.
Alright, to be honest I wasn't so much strolling the Mostar city as I was fighting the red tape. Legally speaking, I'm still an alien in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I don't have a citizenship, just a working permit and an alien ID. I won't bore you much with that, it's a bad situation that I don't like to dwell on. Every place has its advantages and disadvantages. The natural beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina is absolutely breath-taking. The legal aspect of things? Not that great, at least not for a foreigner who would like to make it a home. This country has one of the most complicated political and legal systems in the world. Nevertheless, dealing with red tape didn't stop me from enjoying this beautiful sunny day, as you can see for yourself. I used it as an opportunity to admire Mostar's beauty.
