Rainy days/ Kišni dani


 In the grey colour of time,
there is a thing, 

in the rain, in the wind, in the shadows,
there is a thing, 
in the grey colour of time,

its name I do not know.  *

poem by Croatian poet Miroslav Slavko Mađar. 

 This is what I wore yesterday, an appropriate outfit for a cold, rainy and windy day.  I like to contradict the grayness of the rainy days with some colour. Do you think it is a good idea? What about you?  Do rainy days make you feel melancholic? What kind of outfit can improve your mood?


U sivoj boji vremena 
ima jedna stvar,

u kiši, u vjetru, u sjenama,
ima jedna stvar,
u sivoj boji vremena.

Ne znam joj imena. *
pjesma Miroslava Slavka Mađara

Ovo je što sam nosila jučer, prikladna odjeća za hladan, kišan i vjetrovit dan. Volim proturječiti sivilu kišnih dana sa bojama. Što vi kažete? Mislite li da je to dobra ideja? Čine li vas kišni dani melankoničnim? Što nosite za popravljanje raspoloženja? 


  1. To tell the truth, rain irritates me, but it may be full of romanticism at the same time. It's really nice to stay at home, have a cup of hot tea, read on of the most favourite books or to bake a tasty pie, while listening the sound of rain drops. However, when I have to go somewhere, rain is annoying!
    I've got to say I love those beautiful snapshots you have shared and a pleasing poem! The grass and plants are still so green and fresh over there, I even envious of you a bit:)

    1. Thank you...and I often appreciate the beauty of rainy days...but sometimes I do miss the sunny days.

  2. I love the mixing colors dear... I really do, your color sweater is amazing... Now I´m sick and here is so hot, that I can´t even rest, is horrible =(

  3. It was an really good idea that you wore bright colours on this rainy day, they make the day fresh and bright. I like it to do the same. To be honest weather doesn´t really influence my mood, and there are even some rainy days which I really like because than I can stay at home (what I also like) and do enjoying things, like reading and writing. And the view outside the window confirms me only how comfy it is at home.

    Nevertheless my husband and I took our daily walk, equal how the weather is, and we use simply at rainy days our umbrella :)

    Wish you a happy weekend with the perfect weather for you!

    1. I like to walk when it's raining as well...that's what umbrellas are for, right?...and then being home, nice and cozy, while it is raining is also very nice.

  4. Pa da, potpuno se slažemo kad su kiša i vedre boje u pitanju :) Baš mi se sviđa, originalno i efektno ;)

  5. I like that sweater and I hope you have a nice weekend.

  6. Although I do admire the places you present in your blog.I really appreciate rainy days.
    Before spring ,before holidays,before May.....
    With love

  7. Meni to sve zavisi od raspolozenja, ali da budem iskrena, ja volim kisu
    I svidja mi se dzemper :)

  8. Jako orginalan look i jako mi se svidja kombinacija boja! Mene uvijek ta kisa nekako rastuzi :( Volim je je jedino ako sam ja u krevetu ispod tople dekice sto je gotovo nikada :-)

  9. Colour in greyness is a great idea! I really like your sweater, your channeling a 60's vibe, xoxo.

  10. Hello Ivana,

    i wished i could be with you under this umbrella...;-)

    You wear a lots of (different) colours - i think a need sunglasses...;-) very colourful.

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today. 
Murakami is a writer whom most readers either love or dislike. Options are rather divided when it comes to Murakami, some say he is genius, other claim all his novels are alike. Do you know of whom does Murakami reminds me? Of a cat! He…


Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…


With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
