Polka dots & palm trees | Mixing summer prints

Summer plans are my favorite plans and the fact that all June weekends were/are booked prove it even more. At the start of June I attended my friend's birthday party in a very beautiful place in Latvia called Kāla lake (I also vlogged it, in Latvian though). The next weekend I spent at my parent's summerhouse and we celebrated my dad's birthday. Last weekend I attended a bachelorette party, but this weekend it's time for Summer Solstice (Midsummer) celebration which in Latvia is a very big thing. Seriously time flies by way too quickly. I had already planned some cute outfits for this celebration, but I looked at the weather forecast and it does not look good. Hopefully it will improve cause otherwise I'll have to take with me my leather jacket, chunky scarf and a beanie. Do you celebrate Summer Solstice in your country?

Vasaras plāni ir mani paši mīļākie plāni un ne velti man visas jūnija nedēļas nogales bija/ir saplānotas. Pašā jūnija sākumā biju devusies uz Kāla ezeru, lai nosvinētu draudzenes dzimšanas dienu (kuru starp starp citu arī vlogoju, noskaties manu jaunāko vlogu šeit), pēc tam svinējām tēta dzimšanas dienu, savukārt, pagājušajā nedēļas nogalē piedalījos vecmeitu ballītē (vlogu variet sagaidīt jūlija sākumā). Bet šonedēļ JAU ir Jāņi, kur tas laiks tā skrien? Šodien skatījos laika prognozes un pēc informācijas, kas ir pieejama pašlaik - Jāņus sola nu pavisam aukstus un lietainus. Haha, man liekas, ka tā ir latvieša mīļākā nodarbe, katru dienu līdz pat Jāņiem pētīt laika prognozes. Biju jau izplānojusi ļoti vasarīgus tērpus, bet nu izskatās, ka kā jau katru gadu uz laukiem līdzi būs jāņem ādas jaka, šalle un cepure. Kādi ir jūsu Līgo vakara plāni?

Summer definitely is the best time in which to experiment with different and fun prints, therefore, in today's outfit you'll see a two print combination - polka dots and palm trees. When you first think about the combination it might seem like an odd choice, but I personally really love the end result. I  also decided to play with summer accessories and added a straw sun hat, bright color purse and espadrilles that basically are a summer must have. Actually espadrilles are my favorite summer shoes as they not only compliment almost any summer outfit, but also because they are super comfortable because of their wedge shape.

Vasara noteikti ir eksperimentu un interesantu rakstu laiks, tieši tāpēc šīs dienas tērpā variet redzēt divu rakstu kombināciju - punktiņus un palmas. Pirmajā uzmetienā varētu šķist visai neierasta kombinācija, bet gala rezultāts man personīgi ļoti patīk. Tērpu papildināju arī ar dažādiem vasarīgiem akcentiem, kā piemēram, salmu platmali, košas krāsas somiņu kā arī vasarai tik ļoti aktuālajām espadrilles stila kurpēm. Espadrilles varētu uzskatīt par maniem mīļākajiem vasaras apaviem, jo tās ne tikai lieliski piestāv tērpiem, bet ir arī super ērtas, pateicoties to pilnajam papēdim.
