VRBOSKA (AKA LITTLE VENICE) ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA
Island Hvar hides many gems and I'm very excited to share them all with you. Today I'm taking you to a little picturesque village named Vrboska and nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Located at the end of a narrow bay, this tiny village is an ideal place to escape the stresses of modern life. Because of its lovely bridges, Vrboska was nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Everything from the pine forest surrounding it to the traditional Dalmatian architecture within is absolutely beautiful. The views are simply amazing. No wonder it is increasingly popular with the tourists.
This village started its life as a fishing port and its deep bay still offers protection for boats and yachts. It is the perfect place to stroll around and admire boats and traditional stone houses. The little island within the bay is particularly beautiful. This little village has only around 500 residents. Most tourists visit Vrboska during the summer. There are many stunning beaches in the vicinity and many consider it an ideal place for quiet family tourism. Private accommodation is a great option as there are many lovely apartments to choose from.
IS AUTUMN A GOOD TIME TO VISIT? HOW TO GET TO VRBOSKA?
Now is a great time to visit if you're the type to avoid crowds. The climate here is pretty mild, so even a swim is not out of the question. The distance from Jelsa to Vrboska is only 4 km and you can easily walk the distance. So, if you want to visit Vrboska the daily catamaran from Split city to Jelsa is a good option. You can also take the ferry to Starigrad city and get to Vrboska from there. I actually visited Vrboska years ago but forgot about it. I walked through it when I participated in the UNESCO protected traditional catholic ceremony known as 'Za križen', but it was night time so I didn't really see much. This time I took my time and I was really amazed by how beautiful this tiny village is. I will blog more about the sights to be find some other time. I will keep it on the shorter side this time.

Now, let us talk about my outfit. I actually wore a tartan jacket but I took it off because it was quite warm. Nothing in this outfit is really new but I don't think I have ever worn these items together. I quite liked this styling. Besides it being comfortable, I was also happy with how it looked. One thing I like about this outfit are the colours. I think outfit is a great example of how you don't have to go dark just because autumn arrived. We can wear light colours in autumn and winter as well. This white vintage skirt is one of my favourite pieces and I liked the idea of pairing it with lighter colours. So, I paired my vintage skirt with a lilac knit. I also wore brown boots. I think brown is a good alternative to black, especially when it comes to shoes. Light shoes in autumn and winter can be tricky to maintain, but with brown ones you don't have to worry about keeping them pristine.
Now is the time to talk about how I wore these clothing items in the past and to link up some of my old outfit posts.

Do you have pencil skirts or some items that you wear all year around? Do you pair your pencil skirts with knits? Do you wear boots often in autumn and winter? What are your style essentials? Do you like a lighter or a darker colour palette for autumn and winter or do you like to mix and match?
