Orange, green, blue, black / Narančasta, zelena, plava i crna (Čapljina)

Orange is the colour of warmth, some say. In the colour palette, it is placed between red and yellow, two colours that are very dear to me. So, the fact that I'm fond of this colour is not surprising at all. As you can imagine, I was very happy when I found this lovely midi dress. I've been looking for a long sleeved midi dress for a while, so it's great that I finally found one- and in perfect colour.   The fact that it is from a local brand Bellissima makes it even better. I'm mentioning this brand because people often avoid local stores thinking they are expensive, but in reality they are often cheaper than high-street brands. Yes, you read that right. You don't have to buy all your clothes in Zara, H&M and other high-street brands. Not that I'm against high-street brands. I'm not.  I mean buy clothes in Zara if that is what you really want, but don't be afraid to explore different options. Never buy something just because someone else is doing it. Buy only things you really want. Life is too short for anything else.

 Narančasta je boja topline, neki bi rekli. U paleti boja nalazi se između crvene i žute, dvije boje koje su mi jako drage. Tako da činjenica da mi je ova boja prirasla srcu baš i nije neko iznenađenje. Kao što možete zamisliti, bila sam jako zadovoljna kada sam pronašla ovu haljinu dužine ispod koljena. Zbog činjenice da je od lokalne marke Bellissime još mi je draža. Spominjem ovu marku zato što ljudi često izbjegavaju lokalne dućane vjerujući da su skupi, a zapravo znaju biti jeftiniji od uobičajenih marki koje možete pronaći u tržnim centrima. Da, dobro ste to pročitali. Ne morate sve kupovati u Zari,  H&M i drugim sličnim markama. Ne da imam nešto protiv tih brandova. Nemam. Kupujte odjeću tamo ako vam se stvarno sviđa, ali nemojte se bojati probati i nešto drugačije. Nikada nemojte kupovati nešto samo zato što i drugi to/tamo kupuju. Kupujte samo ono što vam se doista sviđa. Život je prekratak za pomodarstvo. 



Another colours that I love is green. To me it is a very serene colour. This little tartan coat that some would describe as a long blazer ( I tend to perceive it as a light coat because it is surprisingly warm) has been a key piece in my closet for years. I wear it in every season beside Summer. Every year. Anyway, I decided to added another colour to this mix. So, I opted for this blue bag. The more, the merrier, right? This light green necklace is an old creation of mine. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure that I would know how to make this necklace today. I have no idea how I managed to make such a complex necklace without special tools. I know what materials I used- wire and glass beads, but how did I make it? You know how it is with skills--- if you don't use it, you lose it.

Još jedna boja koju volim je zelena. Ta me boja smiruje. Ovaj karirani kaputić koji bi neki opisali kao dugi blajzer (a ja ga vidim više kao lagani kaputić jer je iznenađujuće topao) je ključni dio moje garderobe već godinama. Nosim ga  u svako godišnje doba osim ljeti. Baš svake godine. Kakogod, odlučila sam dodati još jednu boju ovoj kombinaciji pa sam se tako odlučila za ovu plavu torbu. Više je bolje, zar ne? Ova svijetlo zelena ogrlica je moja stara kreacija. Da budem iskrena nisam sigurna bi li danas znala nešto takvo napraviti. Nemam pojma kako sam uspjela napraviti tako složenu ogrlicu bez posebnin alata. Napravila sam je od žice i staklenih perlica, ali kako? Svaka se vještina izgubi kada se ne koristi. 





 


 


I think it goes without saying that these photographs were taken before the cold front hit Europe. The last time the temperatures here were this low was half a century ago. Yet, I would be wrong to complain, because temperatures here are still milder than in most of Europe. During the night it was minus 15 Celsius but during the day it is only a few degrees below zero. I was very sad to hear (on the news) that this cold had already claimed lives in Europe. Keep safe and dress warmly! If you live in an extremely cold climate, keep your time in the open to a minimum. I know that today's outfit is not in the spirit of the advice I'm giving to you but is the thought that counts, right? Besides, shooting an outfit in a cold weather would be against the advice about staying in I just gave you, wouldn't it? As I said, this outfit was shot when it was still warm (only a few days ago).  In case anyone is wondering, the location for these photographs was a train stop in Čapljina. Check out my previous visit to this charming little town here.

Ne trebam napominjati da su ove fotografije uslikane prije nego što je val hladnoće zahvatio Europu, zar ne? Kažu da su zadnji put ovako niske temperature ovdje bilo prije pola stoljeća. No, nije u redu da se žalim jer su temperature ovdje ipak još uvijek blaže nego u većini Europe. Tijekom noći bilo je minus 15 stupnjeva, ali preko dana je samo nekoliko stupnjeva ispod nule. Baš me rastužilo kada sam vidjela na vijestima da zbog hladnoće već ima umrlih u Europi. Pazite na sebe i toplo se obucite! Ako živite gdje je jako hladno, svedite izlaske na minimum. Znam da današnja kombinacija nije baš u duhu savjeta za važnošću toploga odijevanja, ali bitna je namjera, zar ne? Osim toga da se slikavam po hladnoći to bi bilo protiv savjeta koji sam dala o tome da smanjimo izlaske, zar ne?  Kao što sam rekla, ova kombinacija je uslikana kada je bilo još toplo (prije par dana). U slučaju da se itko pita, lokacija je željeznička stanica u Čapljini. Pogledajte moj prošli posjet ovom šarmatnome gradiću ovdje.

  4. Predivno ti stoji ova kombinacija, jedna mi je od najdražih u zadnje vrijeme! I jako mi se sviđa kombinacija boja, sve mi je ko stvoreno za tebe! :) Ovdje u Zagrebu je isto grozno hladno zadnjih par dana, jučer sam išla ujutro na kavu i kad sam se vraćala sam doslovno imala dojam da više koljena ne osjećam...ali neću se žaliti, ovo mi je i dalje draže nego onih plus 40 ljeti :D

  8. It's wonderful to see you enjoying some lovely weather even if it was sometime ago. And your outfit looks vey smartly out together as usual. It's great that you were able to support a local brand with that skirt! It's really so sad that the cold weather has taken some lives in Europe. The extreme cold can indeed be dangerous and everyone should be careful and exercise common sense.

  17. Evo i mene konačno. Baš sam imala problem i na kraju je bilo do mog internet provajdera. Probaću da nadoknadim propušteno :)
    Kao prvo, haljinica me je potpuno oduševila, kao i spoj narandžaste i zelene. Baš je jedna od onih kombinacija koje ne viđamo svaki dan, a tako je efektna i osvežavajuća. Slažem se za domaće/nepoznate brendove. Mogu da se nađu prava mala blaga i nisu svi preterano skupi. Sviđa mi se i što si se slikala na železničkoj stanici pa mi je ceo utisak nekako filmski. Baš, baš lepo!
    Što se zime tiče, mene uvek rastuži kad čujem da neko u današnje vreme umre od zime. Baš je tužno i surovo. Mene sutra čeka Beograd nekih -10 tako da verujem da ću većinu vremena provesti kod kuće :D Ovde ima oko 12 stepeni ovih dana i to mi sasvim odgovara :)

    1. onda je u Barceloni baš toplo, u Mostaru noću padne i do minus 17. Baš se u zadnje vrijeme probudim usred noći jer je tako hladno...nisam navikla nikako na ovu hladnoću.

      Istina je da neki manje poznati brandovi znaju biti i zanimljivi i povoljni, a ljudi ih nekako izbjegavaju iz navike...navika je čudna stvar.

  18. I love orange and especially green, dear Ivana! I loved your skirt and shirt, and you look beautiful and happy, which is a great combination! Loved the gif with the train, how cool was that? The picture as well! No problem that it was a picture made before so cold temperatures, it lifts spirits up! You are very right about saying to people "never buy something just because others are buying". People will still buy things just to feel inserted in the society. Such a waste of money and personality, because of the fashion industry. It'll go on happening - I am glad that once I was like that, but thankfully have seen that we are all being manipulated! Hope you have a very beautiful week, dear Ivana!

  19. Dear Ivana, another thing we love both! I love orange and green, too, but find it not always easy to find pieces in these colours. How wonderful that this beautiful dress is even a national brand and furthermore affordable! I see you enjoyed there really the last warm days after the cold even reached your country. In Bavaria it was indeed very very cold the last days ...
    How good you own this coat! You look definitely fantastic in it and I understand you love this coat already since years!

  21. I love those colors dear! Orange is a very energetic color. I feel like if I'm wearing something orange, I feel more energetic than I usually am. Green is my mother's favorite color. Though it isn't mine, I love it as it symbolizes life and new beginnings :)

    love lots,

  22. Love this beautiful combination of the blazer and the midi dress, the color btw suits you very well. You look very businesslike here. And I say, it suits you, girl! I totally agree, one should only buy what one really want. We had a touch of snow over the weekend.

  29. You MADE that necklace??? I'm v impressed as it looks extremely intricate! The midi is just the medicine for this current gloomy weather. I like the 2 stripes piping at the bottom as it puts me in mind of nautical clothing. Yep, local clothing shops are great. I used to ADORE the shop in my old home town. SUCH nice and unusual dresses. I probably have about 16dresses from there but it closed down this year.x

  30. Odlican miks boja Ivanice! Narandzasta haljinica je divna i veoma zenstvena. Volim tople boje koje unose zivost u monotone zimske kombinacije.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
