Prague Outfit Inspiration

Hello darlings! I’m starting a new series on my blog. As you already know, I studied abroad last semester. I ended up going to a few cities and took way too many pictures. I’ve decided to reopen my posts and create outfits from my travels. Here is the first of many…

 

Isn’t this gingerbread man just the cutest thing in the world? He tasted as good as he looked! To recreate this lovely picture, I picked these adorable loafers from Oasis and paired them with this feminine shirt. I personally love how the tassels on the loafers complements the bow in the shirt. It makes me smile as much as the little gingerbread man.

I’m obsessed with this rain jacket! It’s from Outdoor and Company and also comes in orange and navy. When I look at this picture, I see this beautiful sunset of blues. This is why I decided to pair this classic leaf print shirt with an assortment of blues. I wanted to keep it really casual so I threw in ripped skinny jeans… you can never go wrong with a pair of ripped skinny jeans!

This picture was taken near the John Lennon Wall. I loved how the leaves were changing color and the rustic look of the door. I decided to match this vivid green crop top with a jean skirt. I particularly like this jean skirt because of the scallop detail. I added the camo in this outfit in order to have something a little unexpected. I imagine using it as a cardigan or tying around the waist. In order to soften the look, I paired the skirt with rich caramel colored oxfords and bucket bag.

This very colorful, playful picture is of the John Lennon Wall. Although the wall is actually about peace, I thought I would simulate the edgy colors with an edgy look. I imagine the flannel tied around the waist of this jean shirtdress. I also imagined the shirtdress being slightly unbuttoned in order to show off the statement necklace. To add some color I added this fantastic pair of distressed army green booties.

I know one of the big “fashion rules” is not to mix and match brown and black, but it looks so good! Although the pants are already a statement themselves I wanted to had a little bit more of a pop in this outfit. This is why I added this turquoise necklace. This picture kind of does the same thing with one of the buildings. How beautiful is that sky though?

This wonderful picture was taken from a Starbucks… I know I’m shocked too. The romantic colors in the buildings and the dark roofs made me want to find a darker feminine dress. I paired it up with an edgy purse and earrings to add those darker moods the picture has. However, without going too overboard, I still included feminine pieces like ballet flats and a suede jacket.

This outfit is my favorite of them all. The funky feathers and the statement knee-high boots make this really chic urban look, which is the exact feeling of this marvelous city. If you have a big confidence definitely wear this stunning outfit for a night out on the town!

What is your favorite look? If you haven’t noticed I’m really into the 70’s look lately. I can’t get enough of the suede and the denim pieces!

As always,

No Prague-blems here!

Hello darlings! Last weekend, I took a 12 hour bus to Prague! The bus part sounds awful doesn’t it? Surprisingly, it wasn’t bad at all! We watched movies the whole time and I was able to fall asleep on the bus. It was kind of nice having a day off to just relax. We left Thursday night and arrived Friday morning.

Friday

After the 12 hours on the bus, we had a little over an hour break to get ready for the day. Once everyone was ready we started a walking tour of New Town, Old Town, and the Jewish Quarter. It was so interesting to hear all the history about Prague. It also helped that our guide was hilarious! Did you know Prague was a communist country until a little over 20 years?

After the walking tour, we went to grab dinner. We ended up getting chicken schnitzel, fried cheese, and a very salty feta cheese salad. Everything was very good. I also tried apple cider beer. It was very sweet and delicious.

After dinner, we stopped and picked up gingerbread man! He tasted as good as he looked!

We then wandered a little and decided to see the view from the Prague Astronomical Clock Tower.

Saturday

We woke up and visited the John Lennon Wall, Charles Bridge, Petrin Hill, and the Prague Castle. For those who don’t know about the John Lennon wall, it is a wall that has been spray painted since the 1980s. It started out being a statement against the communist regime. The wall represents a symbol of ideals such as love and peace. On November 17th, the wall was painted white and said “wall is over.” The wall has already been repainted and the saying has turned into “War is Over.”

(Rob said it looks like I’m flipping of the camera… I am pointing at the peace sign just in case you think I’m being a punk)

After seeing the wonderful artwork, we got to feed swans in front of Charles Bridge! I’ve seen swans before but these swans were massive! Their feet were bigger than mine! I thought they were the coolest thing ever. I actually ended up getting a Christmas ornament of a swan because from now on whenever I see a swan I’m going to think of Prague!

After feeding those majestic creatures, we waddled on Charles Bridge. Fun fact: the Charles Bridge was actually made out of eggs! One part man made and one part eggs!

This is a view of Charles Bridge from another bridge:

We then went to Petrin Hill and saw the Prague Castle. Courtney needed some caffeine in her body so we went to a Starbucks and it had the most epic view ever.

I, unfortunately, do not like coffee so that is actually hot chocolate. What do you think of the red Starbucks cups?

The rest of the night, we walked around, ate food, and shopped. We also bought some adorable ornaments. I also ate this beautiful Nutella delight. It is called Trdelník. Don’t ask me how you pronounce that because I have no idea. Excuse the quality of this picture… I was very excited to eat it!

That was my trip in a nutshell! Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Venice and Sunday I’ll explore the romantic land of Verona! I’m so excited! I might pull a Colosseum moment and start crying. Wish me luck!
