Swans in Split / Labudovi u Splitu

Swans are not supposed to prefer the sea to the lakes and rivers, are they? Tell these guys that. I mean, there are plenty of rivers and creeks in the vicinity but they like tourist seem to prefer the seafront promenade. Speaking of unusual sightings, here I am wearing skinny jeans. I borrowed them on this occasion because with this coat they might actually work. However, you won't be seeing me in skinny jeans any time soon. No, thank you.

Labudovi ne bi trebali izabrati more prije rijeka i jezera, zar ne? Recite to ovima. Ima sasvim dovoljno rijeka i potoka u blizini, ali oni kao i turisti više vole šetnju uz more. Govoreći o neobičnim prizorima, nešto neobično za mene... uske traperice. Posudila sam ih ovom prilikom jer s ovim kaputom mogu proći. No, nećete me vidjeti u uskim trapericama ubuduće. Ne, hvala.

Back to the view. Riva, i.e. Split's seafront runs the length of the ancient part of the town. It is considered one of the most beautiful sea promenades in Croatia. Measuring 250 meters in length and 55 meters in width, it's a thing of beauty.  The Split's promenade is a public area, a square and quite often the center of social's life. Undoubtedly, Riva has a special meaning to the residents and visitors of Split....be they people or swans. 

Vratimo se pogledu. Riva se proteže se duljinom antičkog djela  grada (250 metara u duljinu, 55 u širinu), a mnogi je smatraju jednom od najljepših u Hrvatskoj. Riva je ujedno i trg i središte društvenog života. Bez sumnje, Riva ima posebno značenje stanovnicima i posjetiteljima Splita, pa bili oni ljudi ili labudovi.

  3. Haha, e ovo još nisam videla :D Opasni su! Pa ko će da odoli moru :)
    Inače pantalone ti stoje savršeno, ne vidim razlog da ih ne nosiš! Ali dobro, svi mi znamo šta je za nas a šta ne...
    Čuvena riva, lepota! :)

  5. Uh kako vam je divan split, sve sa palmama i arhitektonskim lepoticama! Divna ti je ogrlica koju si skoro napravila, a čizmice su krasne. Labudovi daju poseban dojam, tako su graciozni. Meni se svidja kako ti stoje uske farke, trebala bi ih nositi češće :*

  7. Mislim da sam ih jedno ljeto vidjela i u Makarskoj... ne sjećam se jer bila točno Makarska u pitanju ali je bila riječ o moru i nisam mogla vjerovati! Vole kokice!

    Hlačeti super stoje i ne vidim zašto ih češće ne bi nosila... pretpostavljam da ti nisu udobne :) Ipak, dobro izgledaju! Ogrlica je vau! :)

    1. ja ih se sjećam i iz Šibenika, mislila sam tada da je to zbog blizine Skradina, ali izgleda da se često odvaže na morske izlete:)

  9. What a lovely area! Your outfit is really nice and that is one cool statement necklace. Yes I also thought swans were more native to lakes and rivers as opposed to the sea.

  11. Gosh, that place looks absolutely lovely, Ivana, what a gorgeous water front view. You look great with the skinny jeans and you should wear more of it! Previously I hated skinny jeans too, I though they make me look super fat but these days I can't get enough of it. LOL!

  19. Wow! Such a beautiful town! The water looks really blue and clear. I'm envious of all the sunshine. It's cloudy and dreary here at the moment. You look lovely as always! I like skinny jeans in winter, because they work well with snow boots. But I have a love/hate relationship with them.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  20. That place looks very nice! I love spending time by the water. I live by the bay, but I don't go often enough because I would have to go to the city where it's really busy and loud. :-(

    I envy your high ponytail! My hair is so crazy thick, that any chance of a high pony always goes down south in a matter of seconds.

    1. I know what you mean...maybe it is not noticeable on the photos but I only have the upper part of my hair tied in a pony tail and the rest is let down...(like J.Lo in Love Don't Cost A Thing video....ages ago:))
      If you tie it like that and let the rest of your hair down, you shouldn't have any problems.

  21. You look great in skinny jeans so why not wearing them more often? Beautiful place and gorg pictures, btw!

  25. Dear Ivana, just today I thought a few minutes about your beloved Split as we talked in our English lesson about Croatia. Therefore I thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of the impressing promenade in this for sure wonderful town. And why don't you like skinnies? In my opinion you look really good and stylish in them but I think the main point is that you should be feel comfortable in them. And if this is not the case I can understand you ...
    Happy weekend!

  26. I think those jeans look great on you! everyone has their own tastes though, it's a shame you don't like them. I'm sure there are plenty of other options for you to wear with this coat! :)

    Your statement necklace is just perfect with your top and coat - what a lovely piece! You made it yourself? wow!

  28. I've got the same question, why don't you like skinnies? I personally love this style a lot, to my mind such jeans are just the comfortable:) Tastes differ, though.
    you look great in these jeans, you can trust me ;)

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
