Under The Croatian Sun

Hey! I am back from holidays and feeling sun and sea upped. Here is a few snaps from some sightseeing around the island of Hvar in the town of Starigrad. Which by the way is beautiful and full of old ancient stone houses I just fell totally in love with.

Cross Stitch Update

I have been quite behind on a cross stitch/embroidery post for a while. For me it’s more of a cosy winter craft. But there are so many cute summer cross stitch patterns out there I had to share a few. I saw on Instagram a bunch of cute flamingo cross stitch photos. So I searched online for a free pattern and came up empty. So I decided to create my first pattern ever. And I couldn’t be happier with the results and best thing is i can share the pattern with you.

He is a tiny cute easy cross stitch for beginners and perfect for summer.  It’s not a perfect pattern I created but simple and should be easy to follow. I used a grey floss 2 thread for beak, legs and eyes. A bright pink floss 2 thread for the body. A darker pink floss 2 thread for the wing. And a cream floss 2 thread for the beak.

Here is an older cross stitch I created a few months ago. You can find the pattern here. Its perfect gift for any starbucks lover in your life and also a very easy pattern.

Lastly my first attempt at hand embroidery. I found this design and thought it was so sweet. I had to google how to do different type of stitches but it was fun. You can find it here.

Keeping It Easy

Some days you want to keep it simple. Basic white tee and some denim shorts. Casual, cool & easy for a day of running errands. But to keep things from getting boring I have lately been adding a vintage scarves into the mix. Vintage scarves are the best way to spice up an everyday outfit and inject some individuality into your look.

There are many ways to rock a scarf. On your head. Tied to your bag. On your wrist. Scarves can a belt and lastly around your neck.

The coolest thing is that vintage scarves are basically free. I managed to grab a great collection of silk vintage print scarves from my mother in law the other day. So go ahead and raid your mothers or grandmothers closet. I am adoring anything with a nautical print and bright colours.

Whole Lot Of Love

Whole lot of love is one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs ever, so when I saw this shirt at H&M I knew I had to make it my own. Because I love led Zeppelin & I love a graphic tee.

We had a fewer cooler days this week which was a great opportunity to wear something a little more edgy for a little city strolling & shopping. Don’t get me wrong there is no other season I like fashion wise but sometimes you just need a little less folk and a bit more Rock n roll in your outfits.

I love the leather pants with Birkenstocks for contrast.
