The Spring Bank Holiday and the Memorial Day are almost here, and it’s time to gather your girl squad or family for a late breakfast date in some special place. So put on something nice, perhaps a suede skirt, mules, a blazer in case it gets cold, and a slogan tee. Run the engine of your car and go to the seaside.
The other day I went to Piran, the picturesque Mediterranean town on the Slovenian coast. Honestly, even though this beautiful little town with rich history and impressive architecture, not mentioning the Adriatic Sea, is only two hours away from where I live, I haven’t been there since I was a little girl.
PICTURE POSTCARD AND CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
Coming back to this romantic picture postcard city after so many years, walking all the way from the pier, where fishermen were unraveling a fishing net, and through the narrow streets, smelling fresh vegetables, cherries, figs and strawberries nicely placed in the baskets when passing by the local market next to the church. And finally taking photos at the Tartini Square reminded me of my most beautiful childhood summer memories.
While sitting on the Tartini Square, eating breakfast with my girlfriends, when the light salty breeze that was coming from the narrow streets of this old port town, blew my hair in the air, I remembered how I once roller skate at this square. I remembered the stars, well actually the city lamps, but back then it seemed to me they were the stars, shining on my hair, and the melody of the violins at the Tartini Square, I was skating on.
THE MELODY AND MULES
Floating in my memories, I closed my eyes end let myself remember all the feelings I was feeling, smells I was smelling, clothes I was wearing and melodies I was listening to back then. While dreaming about that transcendent violin melody and trying to remember who was holding my mules, yes mules were fashionable back then, too; while I was skating at the square, one of my friends moved her chair. The loud clatter of the iron chair and buzz coming from the locals at the square woke me up. And made me realize I’m not a little girl in mini skirt making circles on her skates at the square anymore, and the melody I hear is actually a sail-by salute coming from the ship that just arrived at the city.
Extremely excited to find out why this ship made such a buzz around the locals, we … Wait, I’m not telling you the ending just yet. Let’s save this for the end and move on to the outfit I’m wearing on this little trip to Piran, breakfast with my girlfriends at the Tartini Square and walk above the rocky cliff.
SLOGAN TEE, SUEDE, AND MULES
For this lovely trip to Piran and breakfast with my girlfriends at the Tartini Square, only a few steps away from the sea, I decided to wear a slightly more city inspired outfit. Even though by the sea, we didn’t come to Piran for a swim after all. In short, wandering through the picturesque Mediterranean streets and sitting by the sea seemed way more appealing than swimming in cold water.
Therefore I decided to put on a suede mini skirt (you might recognize this skirt from here or here) that would perfectly blend with the charming, pastel buildings around the square and white slogan tee that would match sailboats in the port.
Besides, the slogan tee Feminine Vibes (I also wore this tee on my walk by the sea the other day over here) seemed more than perfect for a short trip and breakfast with my girlfriends. And the highlight of my outfit? The black studded mules, of course. Yes, the same one, I have been wearing with, well basically everything. Including with the suit, over here. And also with a shirt dress for lunch with my friends in the city over here.
A little tip: Wear your mules and suede skirt with a blazer, or go for this trio: mules, bomber jacket and tweed skirt. Be sure to check how I wear this combination of mules, tweed skirt and bomber jacket on my Instagram (link here). And don’t forget to pin or print THE EDIT, your fashion cheat sheet and keep it close your closet. In case you run out of style inspiration when on the hurry in the morning.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
Ps. You can shop my style straight from THE EDIT (simply click on the item you want to get) or the gallery bellow.
Almost forgot to remind you of my previous blog post from Piran. Well, Cannes Piran. And a film festival. Anyway, be sure to check that post over here to see more photos of this beautiful town, the Adriatic Sea and moreover to find out, what to wear to a film festival this summer. You know, Piran has a film festival, too. Surely not as magnificent as Cannes and Venice, but hey, we don’t care. As long as we can wear our favourite summer dress and show it to the press.
Hopefully, I inspired you to visit this magical little city, that is only stone throw away from the Venice in Italy and has everything Dubrovnik has while being less crowded. Although you might want to head on to some other nearby city for Aperol Spritz. Or even better take a 10 minutes drive from Piran and visit old Istrian villages, surrounded by orchards, vineyards and olive groves. And go for a glass of a chocolate wine at one of the wine cellars. Ps. DM for more info about the chocolate wine.
Finally, back to my fashion story from Piran. I almost forgot to finish that story I was telling you before. You know, the sail-by salute and sudden buzz between the locals. Honestly, I have no idea what it was about. We decided to enjoy our breakfast and save our shoes. You know what I mean. Running in the studded mules and heels, not mentioning the suede skirt, merely to see a ship. Not the thing fashionistas do. Feminine Vibe all the way. Ps. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see how I style my new summer dress for the morning walk on the beach and for a stroll through the city next week.
