WIWT/ što sam danas nosila

















This is pretty much how I dress when temperatures get below zero Celsius. Being warm is all that is important and from head to toe, every clothing item was selected with the sole purpose of keeping little me warm, including dr. martens boots (that I didn't wear for a while and) that must one of few shoes that can be worn with two pairs of very thick socks. Today I picked up a few books that I have been planing to read for a while. First, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King. One of my dear friends once send me a few YouTube links with Martin Luther King interviews and said really pay attention to this. I think it was just than that I realized what a force this man was...just watching that first interview made me teary eyed. I've started to read the autobiography tonight and all I can say is that I'm very impressed so far. I'm also really looking forward to reading two other books I took with me, Paradise by Toni Morrison and American Pastoral by Philip Roth. Both of these writers I hold in high esteem for many reason, but if I had to name one of the reasons I would say,  Roth for his brutal honesty and Morrison for her incredible  courage. Speaking of books, recently I finished The Prodigal Daughter by Jeffrey Archer and was left somewhat disappointed. Have you read that one? I really liked the beginning but I guess I was just hoping for something more towards the end. However, when you reread a book you'll hardly ever get disappointed. I've been rereading the fairy tales of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić again ( I do that annually) and it's pure magic every time.

Ovo je otprilike kako se odijevam kada temperature padnu ispod nule. Važno mi je jedino da mi je toplo i od glave do pete, svaki odjevni predmet je izabran samo u tu svrhu, uključujući marte koje nisam dugo nosila i koje su jedne od rijetkih cipela koje se mogu nositi sa dva para jako debelih čarapa. Danas sam pokupila par knjiga koje se već dugo spremam pročitati. Prvo, Autobiografiju Martin Luther Kinga.  Jedna moja draga prijateljica mi je jednom poslala nekoliko YouTube linkova s intervjuima Martin Luther Kinga uz napomenu da stvarno obratim pozornost. Mislim da sam tek tada shvatila kakva je sila bio taj čovjek... Zasuzile su mi oči nakon  gledanja samo prvog intervjua. Počela sam čitati autobiografiju večeras i sve što mogu reći je da sam jako impresionirana zasada. Jako se veselim i čitanju dviju drugih knjiga koje sam ponijela sa sobom, a te su Raj od Toni Morrison i Američka Pastorala od Philipa Rutha. Oba ova pisca jako cijenim iz puno razloga, a ako bi morala izdvojiti neki, rekla bi Rutha zbog njegove brutalne iskrenosti i Morrison zbog njene nevjerojatne hrabrosti.  Govoreći o knjigama, nedavno sam završila Izgubljenu kći Jeffrey Archera i ostala sam pomalo razočarana. Jeste li pročitali tu? Jako mi se svidio početak, ali izgleda da sam imala previše očekivanja što se tiče kraja.  No, kada čitate iznova neku knjigu rijetko ćete se razočarati. Ja sad ponovo čitam bajke Ivane Brlić Mažuranić (radim to svake godine) i uvijek je to čista čarolija.

Kravice
















Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post. Speaking of the last post, this one is a sequel. Just a few more photos of my outfit and this lovely place after I took of the jacket because it was too hot. Before you get envious of the fine and warm weather we've been having this winter, let me inform you that I caught a nasty cold (or even a virus) and was quite miserable for most of my holidays. In fact, I still have fever and feel like I was run down by a truck. Unfortunately, warm weather in winter often means that viruses get to spread more easily (they quite enjoy warm weather too). I  hope you're enjoying yourselves and getting the most out of that precious time with loved ones. Happy Name Day to all of you that celebrate it today. Depending on the language, the name itself  will sound different, but you all know who you are. 

Hvala vam svima na divnim komentarima na zadnjem postu, a govoreći o njemu, ova se objava sastoji od par fotografija na istom mjestu, samo bez jakne koju sam skinula jer je bilo prevruće (dakle recimo nastavak na prošli). Prije nego što mi počnete zaviditi na lijepom i toplom vremenu koje imamo ove zime, samo da vam kažem da me uhvatila gadna prehlada (ili čak i virus) i da sam bila nikakva većinu blagdana. U stvari, još uvijek mam temperaturu i osjećam se kao da me pregazio kamion. Nažalost, toplo vrijemo zimi često znači da se virusi lakše šire ( i oni vole toplo vrijeme). Nadam se da uživate i da do kraja iskorištavate to dragocjeno vrijeme sa najdražima. Svim Ivanima i Ivanama sretan imendan!

Kravice waterfalls / slapovi Kravice






No one was injured during the shooting of this post.:)Nitko nije ozlijeđen tijekom snimanja:)


U ovo prelijepo mjesto sam se zaljubila na prvi pogled i uvijek se volim vraćati ovdje.

This beautiful place was love at first sight, I always love coming back there.

Lokacija/ Location:
Kravice falls
 

 
A lot of plans had to be changed last minute, but I hope that won't make too much difference. Holidays can be great but they can also be really stressful. Now, about the outfit. This vintage jacket is very close to my heart because I've painted the blue tree by myself. The only other thing that I want to mention is this long green scarf, isn't it fabulous?

Morala sam mjenjati planove u zadnji tren, ali valjda neće to biti previše bitno. Praznici mogu biti divni, a mogu biti i jako stresni. Sada što se tiče odjeće...Ova vintage jakna mi je posebno draga jer sam sama naslikala plavo drvo.  Jedino drugo što bi htjela spomenuti je ovaj dugi zeleni šal, zar nije famozan?

WIWT/ Što sam danas nosila








I stayed up late baking cakes and today I feel exhausted (it is probably the cleaning up that made me so tired, not the baking itself ...that part I always love). I honestly don't remember when I felt this tired.  How are you doing? Happy 4 advent if you're celebrating. I don't have much to say about what I wore today. I'm having a bad hair and skin day as you can clearly see. I almost want to fall asleep and wake up after Christmas or even New Year. I persist in wearing these jeans even if they are too short for me and I haven't done anything about that. I'm always in favor of wearing clothes that is about my own age, as is this amazing vintage leather jacket (that you saw on this blog about a dozen of times). I'm sure that once I get some rest, I'll feel a lot better. Perhaps I'll crash in early tonight...and get my groove back by tomorrow morning.

Ostala sam dokasno peći kolače i danas se osjećam iscrpljeno ( vjerojatno me čišćenje izmorilo, ne toliko pravljanje kolača jer to volim). Stvarno se ne sjećam kada sam se osjećala ovoliko umorno. Kako ste svi vi? Sretna zadnja nedjelja Došašća ako je slavite. Nemam puno toga reći o onome što sam danas nosila. Loš je dan i za kosu i za kožu, kao što se može jasno vidjeti. Skoro pa želim zaspati i probuditi se poslije Božića, možda čak i Nove godine. Uporna sam u nošenju ovih traperice iako su mi prekratke i nisam ništa poduzela po tom pitanju. Uvijek nositi odjevne komade koji su otprilike moja generacija, kao što je ova prekrasna vintage kožna jakna koju ste vidjeli na blogu barem desetak puta.  Sigurna sam da ću se osjećati puno bolje čim se naspavam. Možda odem ranije na spavanje...i sutra mi se vrati raspoloženje.
