Montenegro

Skinny Buddha Montenegro vacation

Hey guys, I am going to keep this super short and quick. Here is the first outfit post from our vacation in Montenegro. It was super fun but, alas, it was over a bit too soon. These pictures were taken during our trip to Budva, more specifically the Old Town. We had a wonderful view of the city and the sea as well from the old citadel. I'm wearing a pretty basic outfit but with some fun accessories. I recently thrifted this black top and I was super excited to wear it. Kept it simple with a pair denim shorts. The leopard print sandals are a new entry as well, you can shop them here. I was really surprised to discover that they go with nearly everything and therefore wore them almost every day during our stay in Montenegro. They're super comfy, chic and edgy.

The white stripe

Skinny Buddha Black pants with white stripe piping

As I am sitting down at my desk writing this, the AC blasting, I cannot imagine ever going outside in this code red hot weather. Luckily the weekend was a little bit better, the heat bearable, but still we only went out in the evening. I've been wanting to wear my new white stripe pants but the weather strongly disagreed. I picked them out with the intention of wearing them at the office. I cannot believe I am going back to work in a couple of months. My wardrobe needs an update pronto, so I am already trying to figure out what I am missing. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to wear on top, I only knew I wanted something super light and barely there if possible. Then it hit me! I haven't done this in ages but now seemed the right time to wear a scarf as a top. I love the colors and the pattern on this one but I can't quite remember where I got it. I must have found it at a thrift store long ago. My memory is hazy, must be the heat.

And it was all yellow

Skinny Buddha Jaunty Stripe Cold-shoulder Top in Yellow

I don'y have a great relationship with the color yellow. In fact I think it's my least favorite color. I wouldn't use such a strong word as "hate" to describe my feelings towards it, but it's not far from that either. Even so, once in a while I find myself inexplicably drawn to this color and here I am ordering this and that off the internet. This time I fell for this striped off shoulder shirt, mostly because I am obsessed with anything off the shoulder (somebody stop me!) but also because I wanted to take a risk color wise and step out of my comfort zone. I regret nothing! This is not something I would normally wear but I am glad I made a change, and this shade of yellow looks great against the blue stripes. Makes me think of the sun up in the summer sky. This is something I wore out on a stroll with the kiddo, so comfort was a must. I just threw on a pair of white cut off denim shorts, I cut them myself last year I think, and they are one of my favorite pair, comfy flat sandals and sunnies.

Spirit

Skinny Buddha black and white graphic print shirt dress

I'm a sucker for a graphic print, especially when it comes in black and white. I was super happy when this shirt dress arrived in the mail a couple of days ago and I couldn't wait to take it away with me on my weekend trip. As you might have already seen on Instagram, I went to Cluj for the Depeche Mode concert. I knew it would be a long day, and very hot, so I wanted to wear something that was comfortable and light but with enough coverage to protect me from the sun. The print of the dress is quite similar to the graphic design of Depeche Mode's latest album Spirit, so I thought it was a match made in heaven. We decided to take a walk around Cluj, a city I haven't visited in quite a while, and our first stop was at the botanical garden, a true oasis in the middle of the city. My favorites were the Japanese gardens and the greenhouses where I saw magnificent giant water lilies, palm trees and the most gorgeous monstera deliciosa I have seen. If only I could have snatched it away and placed it in my living room. Unfortunately it was impossibly hot in there and we had to take these pictures really quick, because we were sweating like crazy, but it was all worth it. This is definitely a place I would visit again and again, but maybe in less hotter weather.

Mint

Skinny Buddha Mint Flowers Crochet dress

Vacation is not all we think about during the summer. There are plenty of events you might need to attend, whether it's weddings, formal parties or social events. And of course you need to make a grand entrance. Well, I found the perfect dress for the fancy events I need to attend this season and it's this beautiful crochet cami dress in mint. It seems I have a thing for all things mint this season, although normally I would be attracted to everything pastel during spring. I am in love with the crochet flowers and the mid calf length is so flattering. Unfortunately I left the house without accessories, and didn't realize it until I was well on  my way to the shoot. I would have kept the accessorizing to a minimum though,  maybe a pair of golden clip on earrings and a couple of marble beads bracelets. I normally go for very bright or colorful backgrounds for my photos, but this time this cement wall really inspired me and I loved the contrast between the delicate dress and the roughness of the wall. It's not a random wall by the way, it's part of an art installation in a park close to where I live.
