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.

All that jazz

Skinny Buddha mint ruffles dress

Hello my lovelies, hope you are having a great start of the week so far. I am back with a brand new set of photos from this weekend. For me it has been all about escaping the city heat and retreating in the mountains. The location is a summer favorite, we always come here a couple times a year especially during the jazz festival. So I guess you could call this my idea of a festival look: a gorgeous light weight mint dress in a loose silhouette, a straw boater hat and comfy sandals. The first thing that caught my eye when I saw this dress were the dramatic flare sleeves and the crochet details. The color is super pretty as well, and it will look even better on me once I get a bit of a tan. The sandals have been a favorite last year. Remember  when everybody was crazy about pompoms and there were hundreds of pompoms sandals to choose from and a few diy videos on how to make your own? Well, you can check out how my pair originally looked in this post here. Wore them a couple of times this summer until I decided the pompoms were a bit too much and so I decided to take them off (they were glued and came off fairly easily) and I love them so much more this way. My hat has pompoms as well so that's enough. We're back in the city now but we're planning another escape to this magical place in August and hopefully we'll stay longer than a weekend.

I could be your flamingo

Skinny Buddha Flamingo top skirt

Pink is definitely not my favorite color, you can tell because I rarely wear it, but I do love it in nature. Flamingos are by far my favorite birds and I remember I was mesmerized when I first saw them during a vacation in Sardinia a few years ago. Therefore, I decided to celebrate these majestic birds and create another vacation inspired look. So there you go, a flamingo overdose. The t-shirt is quite old and I've already worn it in so many combinations, but never in an elegant outfit. The skirt was love at first sight, and I have to admit it was so hard so refrain from buying it in all colors. You can check out a great selection here. If you think this is too much you can always go for a plain white t-shirt, drop the heart shaped sunglasses and let the skirt be the center of attention. I normally would have worn a pair of high heels with this, to get that long legs effect and actually resemble a flamingo, but I have to admit I don't wear high heels that often anymore. These flats are soooo comfortable I never want to take them off. I like the subtle pink shade and the minimalist design, because it makes them super versatile.

Kissing the tortoise shell

Skinny Buddha Meli Melo tortoise shell sunglasses

I've been fascinated with tortoise shell sunglasses for as long as I can remember. The name is part of it, but my fascination became even greater when I started to see them styled by pin-up girls. Those famous "kissing the tortoise shell" lyrics from Echo and the Bunnymen come to mind as well, even though they were not talking about glasses at all. There's something so chic and timeless about them, and I am so glad I finally found a pair that looks good on me. I don't normally go for black and brown combos, but this time the sunglasses seemed the perfect addition to this gorgeous black and white striped dress. I especially love the classic front slit mixed with the cut off shoulders, which give it a modern vibe. I am obsessed with stripes, as you might have already noticed, but I am always looking for new prints with a twist. This is the third post in a row featuring striped outfits, and I hate to disappoint you but another one is coming up pretty soon. What can I say, the heart wants what it wants.

It's always better on holiday

Skinny Buddha White Cold-shoulder Top with Tiered Sleeves

I feel like I should be writing this post in French, but the truth is my French is a bit rusty so I will spare you. I was in a very playful mood when I put together this outfit, and because we haven't made any plans for vacation this summer, all I do is daydream about it. So for today I imagined we were somewhere in Provence (such a cliché, I know), sitting in a charming little cafe in a small village, having lunch and enjoying the subtle lavender smell. I've got my fancy straw boater hat on, dark sunnies and the most gorgeous white off the shoulder top with tiers and tiers of ruffles on the sleeves, and a chic little striped skirt. I am wearing flats for a change, one because we are on vacation (duh!) and two because they are super comfortable on these cobbled streets. OK, time to wake up and get back to reality, Miha! I am actually only a 5 minute drive away from my apartment, but in this setting I do feel like I am somewhere far away even if just for one second. Do you have any suggestions for this summer vacation?
