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 ;)

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
