Outfit post (casual) / Odjevna objava (ležerno)






hat: no name, scarf: a gift, bag: borsa, coat: Tally Weijl, jeans: gift, shoes: neosens





There was a time in my life when I refused to wear jeans. I banished them from my closet and wore only skirts and dresses (and suit trousers). That phase lasted for a year or two. Nowadays, I love my jeans and casual outfits. However, I  think that this 'no jeans' phase was ultimately beneficial for me as it helped me develop my own personal style. Furthermore, it made me try new things, look at clothes from another perspective. Jeans can be great but it is easy for them to become a sort of uniform for everyday. Sometimes limitations can be really liberating. Sometimes all we have to do is to break our routine a little bit.

Postojalo je vrijeme kada sam odbijala nositi traperice. Izbacila sam ih iz ormara i nosila samo suknje i haljine ( i hlače od odjela). Ta je faza trajala godinu ili dvije. Danas, volim svoje traperice i ležerne odjevne kombinacija. Ipak mislim da je ta  faza 'bez traperica' bila korisna za mene po pitanju razvijanje osobnog stila. Navela me da isprobam nove stvari, gledam na odjeću iz neke nove perspektive. Traperice mogu biti sjajne, ali lako postaju neka vrsta uniforme za svaki dan. Ponekad ograničenja mogu biti jako oslobađajuća. Ponekad je sve što trebamo malo razbiti rutinu.

  1. You are BACK, yay! Good to see you posting again, Ivana, hope your weekend went well. I love jeans, don't think I can be without them however, I am a little tired of wearing them constantly for winter. I also love skirt however, I have never been a dress person. Maybe I'm still traumatized by the fact my mother loves to dress me in the most ridiculer princess dresses when I was younger. LOL!

    1. my mother tried that but failed...I liked wearings skirts as a kid but styled in a more tomboy fashion. She always talks about how I ruined her lifelong dreams of having a cute baby girl you can dress anyway you like:)

  4. Thinking about it after I read your post - yes, the same is true for me! Don't wear jeans at the moment, no idea why..... so I have to think more about my outfits. Merit of the blog, maybe.
    Love that you wear that kind of cap, I have some but no courage to put them on....will think of you as soon as it becomes colder and do it!!! :)))

  6. That hat is adorable and you are so lovely! I wear jeans quite often but I am not a big fan of them in fashion. They are sort of like putting mud tires on a sports car, useful, sure, sturdy, sure, but fashion? Maybe :)

    1. I know what you mean...I think we all get bored of seeing them (perhaps more bored of seeing them than of actually wearing them).

  21. It is true jeans can easily become a uniform and that's because they are so easy to style and i guess i have an obsession. I should try it one day. Meanwhile, you look gorgeous and warm in your outfit :)). Beautiful post.

  22. Dear Ivana, how good that you finally came back to the jeans as you can wear them in the best possible way! But I can imagine that you are right that the time in your life without jeans helped you indeed to develop your personal style - which I really like as far as your outfit of today. Hopefully it is not too cold in your region at the moment, at least I see here that you have the stuff to keep you warm :)

  26. Ja se sećam kako smo u srednjoj školi svi masovno nosili farmerke pa i danas je to nešto što najviše viđam na ljudima. Ja ih jako volim ali sam takođe odlučila da dam šansu i drugoj odeći i naravno, nisam pogrešila! ;)
    Mnogo mi se sviđa torba, baš je divna žuta nijansa a poslednja slika mi je <3 :)

  29. Slažem se sa svime što si napisala. Ja se u srednjoj nisam skidala iz traperica i nisam ni znala što bih nosila da nisu postojale iste. s vremenom sam ih potpuno izbacila jer su mi bile nekako dosadnjikave. Sada, od kada su se pojavile boyfriend modeli - opet ih obožavam i samo bi u njima hodala. Zvučati se smiješno, ali ništa mi ne bude toliko sexy kao žena u prevelikim trapkama i štiklama! :)
    Torbica ti je odlična kao i kapica i preslatko ti stoji! Zadnja fotkica je <3

    1. danas stvarno imamo sreće jer postoji toliko raznovrsnih krojeva traperica na raspolaganju, prije smo bili puno više ograničeni, a opet sam stalno visila u njima:)

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.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
