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 :*

  6. I've always enjoyed touring with you along with the pretty landscape. Beautiful shots, Ivana! xoxo

  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!

  23. Quel lungomare è davvero bellissimo, ogni volta che ci posti qualche foto, rimango incantata, non solo perché amo il mare! Gli skinny ti stanno bene, dovresti indossarli più spesso ;)

  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 ;)

  29. I didn't even know that the swans like salt water. I always see them at the lake, canals and ponds.. anyway, I adore that look, it has great clean lines and a red bag is just perfect for it

TRYING OUT NEW HIKING TRACK (MOUNTAIN OASIS RUJIŠTE, HERZEGOVINA)

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

7 OCTOBER OUTFIT IDEAS & 2 LINKUPS

Hello everyone! How are you? I'm in bed with fever, I think I caught a virus or something. Anyhow, today I have a few October outfit proposals to share with you. I sure love getting dressed in autumn. With this fall styling ideas, I'm joining Modish Matrons (fifty shades of fall) Linkup. I'm also linking this post with Mica's Weekly Wear Linkup. 
1. ORANGE DRESS STYLED WITH A LONG GREEN VEST AND A VINTAGE BLAZER What says October better than an orange dress? Orange is the colour of warmth. It is also the colour of Halloween and pumpkins. So, I'd say it is a pretty good choice for this time of year. I love wearing this  Bellissima dress (see how I styled it here, here and here). I paired this orange dress with a long green vest (besides m last post, I also wore it here , here and here) and a curd vintage blazer (see how I styled it here). I finished the outfit with black square heel boots (previously worn here and here) and a bag (previously worn here and here). Ove…
