Is blue the colour of forgiveness? (a blue dress and a green scarf) / Je li plava boja zaborava? ( plava haljina i zeleni rubac)


Colours. Patterns. Summer. Funny how it always comes down to Summer. Sure, I like wearing patters and bold colours all year long, but bold colours sure do look more cool with a bit of tan. The same seems to apply for pastel colours as well. Or do I simply like the tanned look? At any rate, colours  and patters are two things make me extremely happy. They can turn even a simple summer outfit into something that feels interesting and fun. Scarves are one of my favourite accessories.  Perhaps because they're a great way to infuse a bit of colour and pattern into any outfit? This dress originally came with a black bow. I liked it, but I like tieing a colourful scarf in the place of that bow even more. Customizing clothes is always a lot of fun. Do you like customizing clothes? I sure do.

Blue dress. Blue is the colour of forgiveness and forgetting, or so one of the characters from Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King claims. I liked this colour symbolism, but I must be honest and say I wasn't crazy about the novel. In fact, it was a great let down. It started so well, but the characters were so one and two dimensional it got ridicolous. The protagonist was likeable but that was about it. Stephen King should spend less time making fun of other writers and more time perfecting his own craft. If you are interested, you can read my review of this novel on my other blog( here ) and on my goodreads profile (here). If you have a goodreads profile, feel free to send me a message. I would love to connect on this social network as well.

Boje. Uzorci. Ljeto. Čudno kako se sve gotovo uvijek svede na ljeto. Naravno da volim uzorke i jarke boje nositi i drugih mjeseca u godini, ali jake boje svakako izgledaju privlačnije kada je koža malo preplanula. Isto, čini mi se vrijedi i za pastelne nijanse. Ili ja možda jednostavno volim preplanuli izgled? Kako bilo, boje i uzorci su dvije stvari koje me čine jako sretnom. Mogu pretvoriti čak i jednostavnu odjevnu kombinaciju u nešto zanimljivo i zabavno. Rubci su mi jedni od najdražih modnih dodataka. Možda zato jer su odličan način da ubacimo malo boje i uzorka u svaku modnu kombinaciju? Ova je haljina došla sa crnom mašnom koja mi se sviđala, ali mi se više sviđa nekakvu šarenu maramu zavezati umjesto nje. Uvijek je zabavno prilagoditi odjeću sebi. Volite li vi sebi prilagođavati odjeću? Ja naravno.

Plava haljina. Plava je boja zaborava i oproštaja, barem tako kaže jedan od likova iz romana Gospodin Mercedes Stephena Kinga. Meni se svidio taj simbolizam boje, ali moram bit iskrena i reći da nisam bila luda za samim romanom, dapače baš me razočarao. Počeo je tako dobro, ali likovi su bili toliko plosati da je to postalo smiješno, samo je protagonist bio simpatičan, ali to je bilo otprilike to. Stephen King bi trebao manje vremena govoreći drugima kako ne znaju pisati, a više se baviti usavršavanjem svoga zanata. Ukoliko vas zanima možete pročitati moju recenziju romana na mome drugom blogu ovdje i na mome goodreadsu profilu ovdje. Imate li goodreads profil, slobodno mi pošaljite poruke, voljela bi se povezati s vama s na toj društvenoj mreži.

Cherry dress and cat ears / haljna s uzorkom trešnje i mačje uši (Potoci, Bijelo polje, Mostar, BIH)


One of the things that I love about Mostar is that are so many amazing locations nearby. Take for example Potoci (literally translated it means Streams), a little village in vicinity of Mostar. It is such a lovely place to go for a stroll and breathe in some fresh and unpolutted air.  Last time I posted about Potoci, Bijelo polje near Mostar (here), some of you asked me about the church you could see in the background. So, today I'll be showing you a closer view of this church and its surroundings. All of these images were taken in front of the church of The Most Holy Heart of Jesus in Potoci, Bijelo polje (Bosnia and Herzegovina).  Now, about the outfit. The hair decoration in my hair is DIY. You had the change of seeing it on my blog here , here and here but in those post I wore it as a necklace.  I got this dress from dresslink ages ago and I'm still not bored of it. I must be a sucker for cherry print. Have a nice day everyone!

Jedna od stvari koje volim kod Mostara je to što ima toliko nevjerojatnih mjesta u blizini, nrp. Potoci, malo selo u blitini Mostara. To je tako lijepo mjesto za prošetati i udahnuti malo svježega i nezagađenoga zraka. Zadnji put (ovdje) kada sam objavljivala o Potocima (Bijelo polje pored Mostara),  neki od vas su me pitali o crkvi koja se vidjela u pozadini pa vam danas pokazujem ovo područje izbliza. Sve su ove fotografije uslikane ispred i u blizini crkve Presvetoga Srca Isusova, Potoci, Bijelo polje (BIH). Sada što se tiče odjevne kombinacije. Ukras u kosi je moja izrada. Imali ste ga prilike vidjeti na blogu i prije (ovdje, ovdje, ovdje) ali dosada sam ga nosila kao ogrlicu. Ovu haljinu sam davno dobila od dresslinka i još uvijek mi nije dosadila. Valjda zato jer volim uzorak trešnje. Ugodan dan vam svima želim!
