I’m a big fan of printed T-shirts, and I truly don’t know how many of them is there in my collection, but this newest addition just took my breath away – even pictures with high resolution camera don’t do justice to this beautiful skyline themed print.
It was such a boring rainy winter day when I got this T-shirt, and it instantly gave me an idea for the look of this blog post – sea and the sky, clash of blue and white, first hint of Summer days which are just behind the corner.
All the pictures were taken in my beautiful hometown Split, true heaven on Earth for those of us who know how to appreciate it.
One thing I just love to pull out from my wardrobe in these fantastic Spring days are my All Star Converse shoes. This particular pair I accidentally found on a Winter sale eight years ago and fell in love with their funky design.
Converse shoes are one trend which will never go away, and they often remind me on freedom, fun and that special escapism of the youth.
At the end of the post I have put some of my favorite Spring/Converse themed pictures, hope you’ll enjoy them!
What do you think about Converse sneakers, and what is your favorite Spring footwear, do tell!
I just love Spring…nature awakens, trees are in bloom. One of the most beautiful sights for me is a cherry tree in it’s full bloom. It is not easy to find cherry tree in Split, but this beautiful almond tree helped us in our photo shoot :). I enjoyed so much finally being able to wear this beautiful cherry blossom or sakura printed skirt combined with cherry inspired jewelry and purse!
Cherry blossom trees, also known as sakura, typically bloom in late March and early April. Many in Japan celebrate by holding flower viewing parties and picnicking under the trees. This custom, also knows as Hanami in Japan, dates back to as early as 710 CE when festivals were held specifically for the coming of the sakura.
In historic Japan, the cherry blossom represented morality, since the blossom itself has a short life span. Now it has come to symbolize innocence, simplicity, and the beginning of spring. In some cultures it represents feminine beauty, love, passion, and hope for greater things to come.
