A Colorful Maxi Dress in Croatia
Dubrovnik, Croatia | August 27th 2018
When we finally arrived to Dubrovnik, Croatia, I was totally inspired by all the colors I saw, the architecture, and the history of the city. The landscape is just absolutely stunning it's hard not to be. The hotel we stayed at, Grand Villa Argentina Dubrovnik, fully embodied the look and feel of the old town of Dubrovnik with it's classic furnishings, terraced gardens and cliffside pool. My favorite part was this beautiful garden with bougainvillea climbing up the stone archways and overlooking the Adriatic sea. It was the perfect place to pull out this unique and very colorful maxi dress.
I have to give my mom credit for this one because she is the one who actually found it and persuaded me to try it on. I wasn't sure about it at first, but when I tried it on it fit like a glove and I loved how different it was. It reminded me of all the beautiful tiles you can find throughout all of Spain. A small tribute to my short time living there.
I found these earrings the same day and thought they would nicely complete the look. I didn't initially plan to style my hair in this way, this look is definitely out of my comfort zone, but it was so hot in Croatia I couldn't stand to have my hair down and styling it was out of the question. There was no way my hair would hold a curl in that heat and humidity, so i decided to just slick it back while it was still wet. I surprisingly loved it. The clean style really allowed the dress and earrings to be the focal point and make a statement. There's something about this dress that makes me think of Spain so I felt like a Spanish princess that night. This is my favorite look from the entire trip.
I finished it off with a simple pair of sandals since we were having dinner in the old town and heels are just not an option here. Beware of cobblestone streets and steep hills. I also carried my new yellow Chanel wallet that I gifted myself for graduation. I loved the way the colors complimented each other.
The best part of this whole look is that the dress is on major sale! I love a good deal. This dress is perfect for your next vacation or special event! Stay tuned for a more detailed post on Dubrovnik!
