Let there be colour! (outfit post) / Neka bude boja (odjevna kombinacija)


It was over 40 degrees Celsius (that's over 100 Fahrenheit) when these photographs were taken. Seriously! I'm obviously a desert type when I'm able to enjoy being out at midday in a city that is practically an oven. If you did not know Mostar city is surrounded by mountains and hills which pretty much turns it into an urban oven. Yes, this city is a champion of unbelievably high temperatures during the Summer. So, this hat was as much a necessity as a fashion statement. Wearing a hat when temperature is over 100 Fahrenheit is a sound idea, believe me. Speaking of Fahrenheits,  have you read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury? You should, you know, it really is a brilliant dystopian novel. I find it uncanny how much some writers were able to guess the future, down to minute details. Every time when I ponder about our modern society problems and questionable practices, I think of this novel and I realize I'm not crazy. Some things are just wrong and that's the way it is. You know what I mean? The fact this novel was censored is one of those superb ironies of life. Anyhow, we're still far from the temperatures under which book catch fire so this bookworm is quite content.

Bilo je preko 40 stupnjeva kada su ove fotografije uslikane. Očito sam nekakav pustinjski top kada mogu uživati biti u podne na otvorenom u gradu koji je zapravo pećnica (Mostar je okružen brdima i planinama pa postoje urbana sahara). Da, ovaj grad je šampion u nenormalno visokim temperaturama tijekom ljeta. Tako da je ova kapa bila nužnost koliko i modni dodatak. Nositi šešir kada je temperatura preko 40 stupnjeva je dobra ideja, vjerujte. Ovo razmišljanje o temperaturama podsjetilo me je da se sjetim romana Fahrenheit 451 koji je napisao Ray Bradbury. Jeste li ga čitali? Ukoliko niste, eto moje ljetne preporuke, pogotovo ako kao ja volite distopijske romane. Stvarno mi je nevjerojatno kako neki pisci mogu pogoditi budućnost do sitnih detalja. Svaki put kada razmišljam o nekom modernom problemu ili upitnoj praksi, sjetim se ovom romana i onda mi se čini da nisam luda. Neke stvari jednostavno nisu kakve bi trebale biti i to je to. Znate li na što mislim? Činjenica da je ovaj roman bio cenzoriran je jedna od onih veličanstvenih ironija života. Kakogod, daleko smo još od temperature pri kojoj se knjiga samozapaljuje (to bi bilo preko 200 stupnjeva) tako da je barem s tim ovaj knjiški crv zadovoljan.

Let there be colour! That seems to had been my motto for this outfit. Let there be patterns, colours, accessories and all sorts of things. Let's go all the way! It is Summer after all and I love Summer. I'm a human being and I feel the effects of heat just like everyone else but I'm so crazy about Summer it doesn't seem to matter that much. Thank you for your kind comments about my jewellery ( or jewelry if you prefer the American spelling) collection. This necklace I'm wearing today is from that new collection that I'm thinking to sell here. If it happens, you'll be the first to know about it. I wish you all a fantastic day! As I'm typing this, it has started to rain. How splendid! What is more lovely than a summer rain?


Neka bude boje! To je čini se bio moj moto kada sam se oblačila. Neka bude uzoraka, boja, modnih dodataka i svega nečega.  Idemo svašta nešto nabaciti jer je ljeto, a ja volim ljeto. Naravno da osjećam vrućinu kao i ostali i da me umora, ali toliko volim ljeto da sve to postaje kao neka slatka briga. Hvala vam svima na divnim komentarima o mome nakitu kojeg se razmišljam učiniti dostupnim na blogu, ako se to dogodi svakako ćete prvi vidjeti. Ova ogrlica koju nosim je dio te nove kolekcije. Želim vas divan dan! Dok ovo tipkam počela je pada kiša. Divota! Što je ljepše nego ljetna kišica?

  22. Dear Ivana, it is obviously indeed unbelievable hot in Mostar - and you are definitely a desert type as fresh and beautiful you look in the heat! Love it that colours are your motto and I like not only your colourful dress but also the stylish handbag and the super cool hat you are wearing! And no, I didn't read the book you mention here so far, but now I'm so curious about this book that I must immediately check if I can get it. Wish you nevertheless it will cool down a bit ... here in Bavaria the temperatures dropped in the midth of last week and now it's much cooler but still very comfortable here.

    I agree with you more that Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that we must not only read once, because it describes many aspects of modern society.

    I loved your look with such extreme temperatures, is really a superhuman effort to photographs, which by the way are divine.

RED ACCENTS FOR WINTER (LUNAR YEAR OUTFIT IDEAS)

For me, the red is the colour of love, good luck and passion. With Lunar Year Festivities and Valentine's Day being just around the corner, it is the perfect time to start embracing and wearing red. How to wear red in the winter? Now, it doesn't have to be a red from head to toe outfit. If you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or you don't want to invest into red clothing items, you can always start small and opt for red accessories such as scarves, leggings/tights, hats, bags, shoes and etc. Moreover, you can embrace red with your beauty options. The bold red lip look will never get old. A nice red manicure is always a classic. If you're bold enough, you can even try embracing the red eye-shadow trend.  HOW TO WEAR RED ACCENTS IN WINTER?

1. RED ACCESSORIES: JEWELRY ITEMS, HAIR ACCESSORIES, SCARVES, BAGS, TIGHTS/ LEGGINGS AND HATS/BEANIES There are so many ways to accessorize with red.  Jewellery (or jewelry if you prefer the American spelling) is ano…
