VRBOSKA, A TRANSITIONAL STYLING (EARLY AUTUMN OUTFIT)
Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers! How's life treating you? Today I'll show you a transitional styling suitable for early Autumn. Every outfit can tell a story really. I'm wearing an old graphic tee with a horse print (more tips about styling a graphic tee here and here). Quite an old tee this one, I bought it as a young teen (so many years ago) with money earned picking figs in summer. The yellow tartan skirt is vintage, inherited from my mother. I always get questions about it. I'm sure I'd never get tired of wearing it. A fabulous piece for sure. I wore tights and startas sneakers with the yellow skirt for warmth and comfort. I also wore a cap and a second hand denim shirt. We did some hiking on this particular occasion or rather attempted to it. We had to end our hike early as it has started to rain. We like hiking near beach Soline. As you may remember, Vrboska is located in a long and narrow bay. Both sides offer great hiking opportunities. Vrboska itself is a great destination to stroll around as well.

VRBOSKA- A PICTERSQUE FISHING VILLAGE WITH GREAT BEACHES IN VICINITY
I have to say a few words about beautiful Vrboska on island Hvar. I always enjoy visiting this lovely village that is sometimes also called Little Venice. On its official tourist site, Vrboska is described as a smallest town on island Hvar. I'm not sure that Vrboska is a town legally speaking, but it fits the description of a little town. Village or town, it's a lovely place. I love how peaceful it is. I love the architecture, the gorgeous stone houses and the beautiful wood boats. I won't go into details because I've already blogged about Vrboska a number of times, so not to repeat myself here are links to my previous posts about this charming village here, here, here, here and here (feel free to check those old posts of mine) to find out more about this beautiful place.
HIKING OPTIONS IN VICINITY OF VRBOSKA ON ISLAND HVAR
Beach Kamenjara and Bota surfing spot are ideal locationS if you want to enjoy a view of island Brač. You can also see the lovely islet Zečevo in the background. Maybe some day I'll swim to this tiny islet, but more likely option is renting a boat. I do want to visit this islet in vicinity of Vrboska. :) Supposedly it is called Zečevo (zec means rabit in Croatian) because there are a lot of rabbits there. I haven't been to Zvečevo islet but I was surprised to see a rabbit very close to this spot when we were hiking the other day. I didn't know there were rabbits here, so close to the sea. I don't know, I always assumed that if there are any, they'd be in the forest further away. It seems rabbits like the sea view as well. Who knew?
Cheers to Autumn and a warm welcome to October! A new month always feel like a fresh start, doesn't it? There is something lovely about a new beginning. A new month, a new year, a new relationship, a new job, a new school or university year and so on. In many ways, we're always hungry for a fresh start- and why shouldn't we be? Isn't this possibility of making a fresh start the most precious thing about being a human being? Naturally, not only humans have this ability. If you have ever had a pet, you certainly witnesses that animals are capable of making a fresh start, getting over old fears and trying some new. Sometimes they're afraid of something for years and then they surprise you and out of the blue they get over it! Sometimes you can literally see them blossoming and developing a whole new personality as a result of getting over old fears. What am I trying to say? That fresh starts can be great! For both animals and humans. There is nothing wrong in loving fresh starts, getting excited about a seasonal changes and making the most of of things. Sometimes fresh starts can be the push we needed.
So, tell me, are you looking for in October? What are you most excited about? Do share! I'm really looking forward to October. Perhaps I'm not so much excited for this month, as for Autumn in general. I can't wait to witness another seasonal change. I plan to take many long walks in the nature, to make the most out of it. In English, October originates from Latin word for eight because that used to be the eight month in the Roman calendar. In Croatian language, we have very poetic and imaginative names for months. So, for example, we call October 'leaf fall' because it is the month when the leaves start to fall. That's one of the things that always bring a smile to my face. Streets covered with colourful leaves are such a pretty sight! Every season has its magic and now it is Autumn's turn to take the stage so let's just relax and enjoy the show. Why not?
As always, thank you for reading and visiting. Have a lovely day ahead!
