a walk in the park - a perfect summer city getaway

In my last post we discussed how to get that perfect tropical feel in the city; today, it’s still summer and we’re still in the city, so, a walk in the park – a perfect summer city getaway? As you might’ve guessed from the title, we’re looking for a place to escape these summer heat waves. And is there a better place to cool down than in a park, surrounded by greenery and all the beautiful scenery? I’d say we’ve found a perfect summer city getaway!

So, where is this magical place to get away from the city asphalt? The location we shot at is truly an amazing one. And, what’s even more amazing is that you can find places like these only a couple of steps from the city center. This park, Zvezdarska šuma, was the right kind of city oasis we needed. I don’t know what I enjoyed more, the gorgeous forest with its greenery or these beautiful hydrangeas we stumbled upon. In any case, it was a perfect summer afternoon. Hidden from the heat by tall trees with rays of sun coming through, we couldn’t have asked for more. And surely, the answer to the question is a walk in the park – a perfect summer city getaway is yes!

What’s left now is to see what I chose to wear for this walk in the park and for my perfect summer city getaway. You can never go wrong with a dress, that’s for sure. So I chose to wear a dress. This dress is a gorgeous floral wrap one, with all the shades of violet and pink. The colors of the dress made, at the same time, a perfect contrast to the green scenery and a perfect match for the beautiful flowers. And it is a thrift store treasure, which makes it even more perfect!

The earrings stayed in the same tones and same texture, by mimicking the flowers. I wanted the shoes to be elegant, yet comfortable for a walk in the park, therefore the wedges.

And finally, the bag. This bag is one of my prized possessions. It was passed on from my grandmother to my mother and then me, so you can imagine the meaning it has. I truly treasure it and I hope it will last another forty years.

So, a walk in the park – a perfect summer city getaway? I think we can all agree it surely is. And now, it’s time for some pictures!
