true colours (outfit post) / prave boje (odjevna objava)

This beautiful mural is located in hospital Bijeli Brijeg in Mostar and it is a lovely sight to behold. I couldn't help noticing it  while waiting for my husband to come back from his head scan. After the scan, the two of us went for a stroll and took a lot of  photographs. If anyone wants to see photographs of lovely Mostar city, you have come to the right place today. My outfit is quite colourful, but I guess that won't be a surprise to anyone. I'm wearing one of my May's DIY projects...can you spot what it is? 

Ovaj prekrasni mural je smješten u bolnici Bijeli Brijeg u Mostaru i stvarno ga je lijepo vidjeti. Nisam ga mogla ne primijetiti dok sam čekala muža da se vrati s snimanja glave. Nakon snimanja, nas dvoje smo išli prošetati, a uslikali smo i puno fotografija pa tko želi vidjeti fotografije lijepog Mostara došao je na pravo mjesto. Moja odjevna kombinacija je poprilično šarena, ali mislim da to nikog neće iznenaditi. Nosim nešto što sama sama napravila ovog svibnja, možete li pogoditi o čemu se radi?

 the hospital's cafeteria has a funny name, it's called infusion.  People in Mostar are quite known for their sense of humour. 

 The verses you can see are written in an old glagolitic script and they are actually lyrics from a poem of one of my favourite Croatian poets.

  6. That painting on the wall looks really splendid, I do love it. I was closely examining each detail of it, it's also quite remarkable that your favourite poem is written there:)
    I do like the way you look, but I have no idea which detail of the outfit is handmade. Probably, the bag, but I have already seen it here at your blog before. It's intriguing;) I also like that weightless,colorful neck-piece, what can be more feminine and chic!

  7. Nice pics Ivana, and doesn't that jacket work well with that skirt and the red top. Very nice...!

  8. amazing place

  18. really cool and looks like the end of 80-s aprox 1986

  19. Fabulous outfit, I love your skirt and your blazer is very chic. How are you pretty Ivana ? Kisses :)

  20. I love it when they make hospitals into artful places - I've been to a couple of Children's hospitals here, and they are nothing like what I experienced in my childhood - they are bright, beautiful inspired art around, fun playrooms for kids... They are places to get better. This mural is truly gorgeous!

    Love your colorful self, the skirt is so well fitted, the colors are bright and cheerful, and the scarf is fantastic! xxx

  21. what a different look! love the scarf. thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! xx. gigi.

  22. You look tres chic, in your colourful and stylish outfit, Ivana! I agree with Natalia and think it is so important for hospitals to be cheerful and uplifting though they so often aren't. Children's hospitals here do it best. The art in your hospital is whimsical, which is great. We need the whimsical at all ages, I think. xoxo

  23. More hospitals should have lovely artwork like this as places like that need to be enlivened so people can be distracted by the circumstances for which they're there for in the first place. I hope everything went well with your husband's head scan and that he is ok. I had to get a head scan once and the sedatives I took made me so loopy that I forgot the whole experience which I guess wasn't really a bad thing.

    All Things Bright and Lovely

  27. Volim žutu oa sam oduševljena kako se provlači kroz čitav outfit! Sve mi je baš jako jako lijepo kao i mural... jedino mi baš nije "draga" lokacija na kojoj se nalazi!

  31. Beautiful mural! I always take some time to look closer at any murals I come upon. There is special charm in this form of art. Cool outfit, especially I like the scarf. And hey, you have really pretty slim legs, you should show off them more often :) Thank you for the information you gave me about that tattoo tradition and the link, you know such stuff interests me very much. I will try to do more research.

  32. I hope your husband is ok - the mural at the hospital is beautiful, it's so lovely to see a magnificent piece of art there, here our children's hospital is colourfully adorned but not so much the adult hospitals, shame really - you are exquisite! I love your outfit, the colours and textures so pretty, like you! x x x

  33. Pa ti čak i u bolnici pronađeš neki detalj vredan pažnje :) Nadam se da je sve ok sa tvojim mužem. Što se kombinacije tiče, mislim da mi je tvoja omiljena u poslednje vreme, jeste šarena ali je nekako sve baš gde treba da bude :)

  34. Great outfit, this skirt is very beautiful!

  35. Hello, I love your bright outfits, it's exactly how I imagine southern style - chic, happy, colorful and unique! Happy Monday!

  45. Nice post!

  46. That is quite the mural to have in a hospital but it is nice to see some color! I sure hope your husband is doing well. Your outfit is beautiful, love that yellow skirt!


  47. I hope there's nothing serious with your husband, dear. Anyway, yellow is definitely a happy color. So brilliant and simply cheerful!

  48. If I see it on LOOKBOOK and like/Hype it, I obviously must like it elsewhere. So I dropped on this blog to offer my love of this outfit. You're dressed very nicely here and look great. I like the coat and the pumps. The scarf and skirt are also very nice.

  49. cool city pics my dear. unfortunately i cannot spotted your diy - sorry.

    but your outfit is really good. i like your tights a lot. this colour is amazing.

    is this anthracite?

    1. The colour of this tights is dark grey, so yes it is coal colour or anthracite.

      My DIY was hard to spot so don't worry about not seeing was a small hair decoration in the shape of a heart.

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…


Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
