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!

  2. This cherry dress is so perfect for summer. A line is so flattering and flirty. Bay Torac looks so beautiful. If we lived nearby, I am sure we would want to rent your parent's place for a couple of nights!

  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!

TRYING OUT NEW HIKING TRACK (MOUNTAIN OASIS RUJIŠTE, HERZEGOVINA)

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

7 OCTOBER OUTFIT IDEAS & 2 LINKUPS

Hello everyone! How are you? I'm in bed with fever, I think I caught a virus or something. Anyhow, today I have a few October outfit proposals to share with you. I sure love getting dressed in autumn. With this fall styling ideas, I'm joining Modish Matrons (fifty shades of fall) Linkup. I'm also linking this post with Mica's Weekly Wear Linkup. 
1. ORANGE DRESS STYLED WITH A LONG GREEN VEST AND A VINTAGE BLAZER What says October better than an orange dress? Orange is the colour of warmth. It is also the colour of Halloween and pumpkins. So, I'd say it is a pretty good choice for this time of year. I love wearing this  Bellissima dress (see how I styled it here, here and here). I paired this orange dress with a long green vest (besides m last post, I also wore it here , here and here) and a curd vintage blazer (see how I styled it here). I finished the outfit with black square heel boots (previously worn here and here) and a bag (previously worn here and here). Ove…
