Nope, this is definitely not the outfit I’d wear to a Nine Inch Nails concert, but maxi dresses do make perfect sightseeing attire If you’re following FreeUrCloset on Instagram, you must’ve noticed our obsession with maxi dresses this summer. Walking distance from my summer house in Croatia, is a small little island and city called Nin. It is a city with a very rich and tumultuous history, dating as far as 10,000 years ago, though it’s present day town is only about 3,000 years old. Yes, only hehe … and it is always on my list of places to visit whenever I’m in it’s vicinity.
This charming little city is filled with historical ruins, a couple of sea food restaurants, ancient churches, town square, museum, gift shops, cafes, and ice cream shops, so how could I resist the temptation to stroll down it’s stone paved streets in my new maxi dress by Tiana B. Made of soft and comfortable jersey knit material and accented with gold braided straps and belt, this aqua colored maxi was just the perfect dress to wear on this warm summer day. Always the glitter girl, I’ve added H&M gold and turquoise bracelets, big gold earrings and a glittery Betsey Johnson wallet/clutch to the mix.
Let me take you on a little tour and show you why I love coming here. A short walk across the little moat bridge brings us to this little island of Nin.
This is the town square and the ancient well that has kept the citizens supplied with water throughout many sieges.
A perfect example of Nin’s seafood restaurant, offering ample shade on this sunny day. Located right across from this restaurant is the Church of the Holy Cross, aka the world’s smallest Cathedral. Overlooking the ancient cathedral is the statue of Grgur Ninski who was the bishop of Nin in 926. Rubbing Grgur’s big toe is said to bring good luck. Not only did this great man stand up to the church officials, but he also, obviously, had great fashion sense, not being able to restrain from fabulous maxi dresses
Rubbing Grgur’s big toe and wishing you all a fabulous Monday!
