A BEACH OUTFIT FEATURING A WHITE CHERRY PRINT A-LINE DRESS

Hello darlings! How are you doing? July has been off to an extremely hot start (the temperatures are extremely high), so I'm spending most of time locked at home and writing new posts for you. Small wonder that I'm daydreaming about beach outfits, right? So, here comes a beach style outfit proposal. Now, you boys and girls know that I like nothing better than rocking printed dresses in summer. Besides the classical floral print, right now I'm really into cherry print. If you ask me, cherry print dresses are such a lovely way to refresh our summer wardrobe. I only own two of them, but those two sure get a lot of wear. If you recall, I received this white cherry print A-line dress from Grace Karin back in February (it arrived just before Valentine's day so that's what I wore it for). Since then, I have worn this white printed dress a couple of times ( with a red blazer here, with an olive blazer here). It might seem too dressy for the beach, but it is actually quite comfortable. You know, I could argue that a vintage inspired dress like this one can be dressed down quite easily with a pair of casual beach shoes, but I know it might still be too dressed up look for some. I actually wore this printed dress for a ferry ride from Split to Starigrad (I opted for a shorter ferry on the way back, this time Drvenik- Sućuraj). I liked this dress so much I ended up wearing it more than I planned. Here you can see me sitting on a rock and channeling my inner mermaid. I do love the freedom that the A-cut provides.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A-LINE DRESSES IN SUMMER?

One of the benefits of A-line dresses is that they are very comfortable. A-line dresses are typically fitted bellow the bust (or around the waist) and they expand from there in shape of a letter A (that is why they are called A-line dresses). These dresses are similar to skater dresses but they tend to be fitted higher at waist.  Their great advantage is that they are perfect for most, if not all, body types. I can't think of a body type that wouldn't look good in this type of dress. Why? Because A-line dresses do a great job of balancing the figure. 
DO YOU LIKE THIS LOCATION? If you like it, that's great because there are more posts shot at bay Torac coming up. If you remember, I greeted the summer on island Hvar in bay Torac (I left on the first day of summer). We were there for six days and we really enjoyed our six day stay. We stayed in my parents' apartment no. A4044-a. If you follow the link, you can check the availability. (July is already full, but I think there is another free week in August).

WHY ARE WHITE PRINTED ITEMS IDEAL FOR SUMMER? 

Another reason why I love this dress for summer is its colour: white. What fits summer aesthetic better than light colours? A white look can be very classical (as demonstrated by Monica Bellucci) If you aren't sure whether all white outfits are for you, why not give printed white items a try. Personally, I think white printed dresses are a great option for summer. If cherry print is too bold for you, why not try wearing a white floral dress? A white printed dress might be the perfect way to wear the white trend for summer. If you ask me, any dress that makes you want to dance is a good dress! So, this write cherry print dress is a winner for me. 


As always, thank you for reading and visiting! Take care!

  3. This dress is so cute! I totally love the cherry print for summer. I'm also a huge fan of A-line dresses. Just like when it comes to bottoms (jeans, shorts, and skirts), I dislike it when they're low rise. Thus, the higher the waistline the more likely I am to like it. Hope you're having a wonderful vacation :)

    1. high rise is not only more flattering, it is actually better for our health. Low cut jeans create a pressure on the lower part of our back and (as old ladies here always warn me) they also leave our kidneys exposed. High rise items are the best. Thank you for your comment.

  24. I know were talking about dresses here but OMG I can't stop with the location. Especially the water. I went to Croatia last year and it ruined beaches for me because they are so immaculate. Which I could go back or better yet already be there, heat and all. I'm dying to swim in those crystal clear waters again. Definitely can not wait for more posts!

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY:A SUMMER DRESS (STAEDTLER PENCIL WATERCOLOURS)

Yesterday I tore myself away from the laptop to make a new fashion illustration. It's been a while since I made my last fashion illustration. I've been spending an insane amount of time behind the screen lately (who ever said blogging is easy, right?) working on new blog posts. At some point yesterday, I decided to get up, grab some watercolour pencils and paint a new fashion illustration. Friday Fashion Illustration is not the most regular feature on my blog, but this summer at least I can try to change that. While I was working on my new fashion illustration, I test drove watercolour pencils from Steadler  brand (not sponsored). It's been ages since I last used watercolour pencils. I'll wait for a bit before I give this brand a detailed review, but for now I can say that I quite liked these pencil watercolours. So far so good, you might say. Steadler brand claims to be sustainable and  sustainability is important to me. It is something that applies to every aspect o…

SUMMER READING AND REREADING UPDATE: P. MERIMEE, F.S. FITZGERALD AND M. VUKOVIĆ RUNJIĆ

Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…
