STRIPES: NAVY OUTFIT IDEAS FOR SPRING

WHITE AND BLUE STRIPES- A TIMELESS CLASSIC

Maybe I'm jumping a bit ahead of myself here, but I keep putting together warm spring outfits in my head. I know transitional styling is what I should be thinking right now (and I will get to than in my next posts I promise) yet something makes me think vacation style. Maybe I'm craving another weekend at seaside? The beach trend is definitely something I can see myself wearing.  Speaking of spring trends, I really like the mermaid vibes trend, but there is also something to be said for the classical navy style. Stripes and navy prints are something I like to come back too. 

Sometimes a little striped accent (such as a cardigan or a pair of sneakers) can completely change an outfit. Whether navy print is just as accent, or it dominates our outfit, I think in most cases it looks elegant and effortless. A combination of white and blue is always a lovely one. When I think of spring outfits, white or striped tops, blouses and shirts come to mind immediately. I do plan to wear navy inspired outfits quite a bit. I'll probably try to explore the mermaid trend a bit as well. There is a way to do it even while it is still cold, but we'll dig into that some other time. For now, you can have a look at the kind of outfits I can't wait to wear again. 













I think one of the advantages of being a blogger is being able to look back to your outfits. It is kind of like having a digital closet. While browsing my digital closet (i.e. my blog archives) I got even more inspiration for spring. The perks of blogging, being able to travel back in time so easily. I definitely do plan to rock the classical striped outfit in blue and white. That's always a timeless choice. I would also love to try out some new colours and shades, maybe turquoise. There are a lot of interesting spring trends that I'm excited about. That's the joy of change of seasons for you and a plus of living in a climate where you can feel it. I genuinely enjoy the change of season. It is fun to see how your surroundings change, without you having to travel for them to do so. Yes, the change of seasons is always a happy event in my book. I reckon it won't be that long before spring arrives here and I'm really looking forward to it. 

Today I also have some picks from Cocolooshop for you. I found some cute striped women shirts for sale on this site. The two shirts you can see bellow (a striped one shoulder shirt and a regular striped shirt) would both fit my wardrobe well. I think that a striped blouse or a shirt is always a good investment because it is quite easy to style. The same goes for a striped cardigan. As much as I love crazy patterns and colours, I find that having a few striped items in white, blue and/or red in my closet really makes my life easier.

Another nice and trendy option for spring are bodysuits. If that is what you are looking for, do check out these cheap bodysuits for women.  I think I only have one or two, and both of them quite basic (in black if I remember well). I might look into buying some new ones. Bodysuits look great paired with jeans. They can also be very flattering and are quite easy to style. In addition, bodysuits can be worn in any weather because they are easy to layer. I might wear them even more this spring. Do you wear them? Have you started shopping for spring trends yet? Or do you prefer to shop your closet? 


SPRING TRENDS TO KEEP AN OPEN EYE FOR

Some of my favourite Spring trends are: beige, lace and mesh materials (material mixing in general), mermaid vibes and vibrant beach colours (wet suits and all that), oversized hats and statement prints! Let me know what are your favourite ones. Do you plan to wear stripes this spring? What kind of spring outfits do you look forward to the most?

3 AMAZING CITIES TO VISIT IN HERZEGOVINA BESIDES MOSTAR

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city.

It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
