Advent in Split/ Advent u Splitu


 As far as I'm concerned, Santa can keep all the snow for himself. This is my kind of Advent. Split city soaked in sunshine. Mediterranean Christmas is my kind of Christmas. Sunshine, sunshine and more sunshine....I couldn't be happier about the amount of sunshine we've been having. Now, about the outfit. My foot is still swollen and walking is still quite paintful. Dr. Martens boots  and startas sneakers are the only pairs of shoes that I can wear and I'll probably be wearing them for a while. I've been living in dr.martens boots and startas sneakers for the last ten days. There is no indication that my foot will get better anytime soon, but at least nothing is broken. Things will return to normal sooner or later. In the meantime, life without heels has been strange. I was so used to wearing them all the time, I feel like I have lost my balance. We're all creatures of habit sometimes.

Što se mene tiče, djed Božičnjak može zadržati za sebe sav snijeg. Ovo je pravi Advent za mene. Split okupan u suncu. Mediteranski Božić je Božić po mome guštu. Sunce, sunce i još sunca...ne bi mogla biti sretnija što se tiče količine sunca koje imamo u zadnje vrijeme. Sada, to se tiče odjevne kombinacije. Moja noga je još otečena i hodanje je bolno. Marte su jedine cipele koje mogu nositi, a vjerovatno ću ih nositi još neko vrijeme. Praktički živim u njima i startasicama. Nema indikacija da će mi noga biti nešto bolje uskoro, ali barem ništa nije slomljeno. Prije ili kasnije, biti će po starom. U međuvremenu, život bez visokih potpetica je čudan. Tako sam bila navikla da ih nosim da sada osjećam kao da sam izgubila ravnotežu. Svi smo mi robovi navika ponekad.

  1. pa dobro, što je s tom nogom? nadam se da će ozdraviti brzo!
    baš lijepo vrijeme u Splitu, kad je sva magla kod mene gore :)
    Čudno mi te gledati u ravnim cipelama i hlačama :) Sve čekam neku haljinu da iskoči ;)

  3. For me, I love the snow! My heart yearns currently for a walk in a snowy, quiet woods. It is very cool to see how Christmas looks in your area though. And those mountains call to me greatly. Lovely shots!

  5. I'm sorry to hear about your poor foot. I do hope it gets better soon.
    I'm the opposite with shoes as I wear my teal doc martens most days and wearing heels is a bit of a shock. In fact,this week I've been mostly wearing knee high boots and having that heel and walking 3miles on it has made a difference.
    It is always nice to see sunny Split and dream of sunnier times!!!Xx

  11. Dear Ivana,
    I like this weather, too. And your beautiful necklace! It gives your outfit an enormous amount of pep. And I think with your slim figure you can wear Doc Martens boots very well! Nevertheless, I wish your leg a speedy recovery!
    Hugs from Austria,

  12. Lucky you have the sun. Split looks so beautiful and you look even more beautiful. It's freezing here in SanFrancisco and I have the heater on full blast and of course the skies are grey with no signs of the sun making an appearance. But what happened to your leg? Omg I must have missed that but I sure am glad you're feeling better. Doc Martens is a good substitute until ur 100% again. Feel better babe. Stunning necklace btw.

  15. This city is so beautiful, dear Ivana! I am sorry, I didn't know you had a problem with your foot, hope it gets better soon! I had college exams and Christmas preparation and vacations to prepare - so my time was really terrible, but from the middle of January again it will be OK! I loved your outfit, and you look great in Dr. Martens! I used to wear high heels every day and only that, till some years ago, 2 or 3. Then a friend "introduced me" to flats and now I love them!

  17. Jao stvarno se nadam da će noga što prije biti bolje, ali ajde barem ništa nije slomljeno, to bi tek bio totalni užas.
    I meni ne fali snijeg, bolje da ga nema nigdje u blizini jer, koliko god ga volim vidjeti kako pada, toliko sva romantika prestane u trenutku kad moram izaći iz stana :) Super ti stoji ova jaknica, baš mi se sviđa!

  18. That looks like a nice comfortable casual denim outfit! :)

    Sorry to hear that you are still having problems with your foot, but it's great that you have some flat shoes you can wear while i heals, so you can still get around!

    Love the bright statement necklace against the dark top too!

  23. I find myself lingering with envy over the clear sunny skies in your photos here and the clarity of the light. And in spite of your swollen foot, your smile is radiant. Ahhhh, back to peering out at the lowering grey skies and listening to the rain and contemplating whether a damp walk will be worth the amount of mud I'll bring back on my boots. Happy festive season - I prefer your version of the weather!

  29. Dear Ivana, so sorry your foot is still swollen but at least you are obviously able to walk a bit in your Doc Martens shoes. But I understand what you mean with missing heels :) When I started a few months ago more and more flats first my colleagues were sursprised that I'm much more petite as they thought and also for me the sight from the reduced height was much different ... but now I'm more and more used to flats :) You look nevertheless good in your look with the elegant jacket and Split absolutely warm and sunny! Wish you a wonderful last week of Advent and hopefully the Doctors are wrong and your foot will recover very soon.

  31. I'm totally with you and I'll take a sun-filled and warm Christmas over a snowy one any day. We are having a similar weather pattern in NYC this year and the forecast is indicating that it will be one of the warmest ones ever. In fact on Christmas eve, we might be getting summer-like temps. I know that climate change is probably responsible for this and that's bad but I still can't help but look forward to it. That's bad news about your foot but you're doing the right thing by sticking with sneakers and Docs for now. With heels you might just prolong the swelling which is the last thing you need. It's a good thing nothing is broken but be careful and keep it elevated and ice it when you're at home.

  32. I absolutely agree with you Ivana, Mediterranean winter is my kind of winter too) YHere in cold and freezing Canada such a warm weather is abnormal, but I love it so so much!
    You look great, loving the statement necklace on you sweetie! Wishing you faster recovery so you can rock your favorite heels any time soon!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

READING UPDATE: ASIMOV'S ROBOT SERIES AND BUY JUPITER SHORT STORY COLLECTION

As some of you might know, one of my favourite science fiction authors is Isaac Asimov. I've always loved science fiction. I have grown up reading it and I never really stopped. Asimov's Robot Series is composed of six novels and thirty seven short stories. Recently I've read a few novels in the Asimov's Robot series and today I'm going to share my reviews of them. I'm also going to share my reviews of some of the novels from this series that I have read in the past. Moreover, I'm going to share my review of Buy Jupiter and other stories by Isaac Asimov, a short story collection that features some stories from his Robot universe. As for the fashion part of the post, nothing I'm wearing is new (and you know it because I signed up for Slow Fashion initiative). I had this yellow top for ages (see how I styled it here and here) and that goes for this olive green pencil skirt and the boromina sandals. However, the bag is new. I forgot about that- it was a g…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
