Plitvice Lakes National Park | Croatia

     For the second half of my week long holiday in Croatia, I travelled out of Dubrovnik and took a bus north to Split (you can also take a ferry or flight!). I was staying there for four nights, and the first afternoon I spent in the city itself - more coming on that in a future post! However, whereas in Dubrovnik I could have done day trips but instead chose to fill my time in just the city itself, I discovered that for Split you only need a day or two in the city. But I had booked to stay for that long to do some day trips around the region instead. I looked into a few options before settling on one day to the Blue Cave & 5 Islands, and another to Plitvice Lakes.

3 Days in Dubrovnik | Croatia

     Croatia's Dalmatia coast has become exceedingly popular over the last few years, thanks to its beautiful islands, stunning old town cities, and of course, Game of Thrones filming locations! I needed a week's holiday this month (before summer and high tourism season hits), and hadn't been before, so it seemed perfect. I did half the week in Dubrovnik, then the second half in Split, further up the coast - so more posts will be coming soon! Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate for me, and I had about two sunny days out of the whole week, so some of my plans had to be altered to adjust... Still, I think I made pretty good use of the time I had. Anyways, Dubrovnik first of all!

Outfit - Brunching

     Oh I do love a bit of brunch. I'm a cliché really, give me anything involving eggs benedict, avocado, and coffee, and I'll be happy. Anyways, this outfit is so-named because I first wore it for a brunch day, but it's a staple everyday combination for me. It's a fairly simple, casual look, with these blue skinny jeans and long purple cardigan (both new purchases though), but I think the heeled ankle boots and the jewellery just make it a touch more sophisticated. I also like the purple & green colour combination of the cardigan and top (it's more green in person) - which I haven't featured on here in years! I chose the jewellery to match the top, and they're pretty global pieces, with the earrings coming from Lesotho, and the necklace a gift from my brother from his trip to New Zealand. Nothing very complicated or unusual going on here, but I like how it all comes together!
