Rain, street art and smiles / Kiša, ulična umjetnost i osmijesi

This was one of those days when you can't stop smiling and you're not even sure why. To tell you the truth this outfit is also from last year, but considering that it is raining outside now is actually the perfect time to post it. These photographs were taken in Mostar and I rather like them, especially those with the street art in the background. Not suprisingly, I'm a big fan of graffiti and street art, even more so when they're done artistically and when they become true works of art. I always try to share street art with you on my blog, because it can be very creative and inspiring. Back at University, I even wrote one paper about graffiti in Split city. Urban life can be inspiring too.

To je bio jedan od onih dana kada nam osmijeh ne silazi s usana, a i da sami nismo sigurno zašto je tomu tako. Da se razumijemo i ova odjevna kombinacije je od prošle godine, ali s obzirom da vani pada kiša danas je savršeni trenutak da je objavim. Fotografije su uslikane u Mostaru i baš mi se dopadaju, pogotovo one s naslikanim grafitima ( koji su više poput slika na zidu) u pozadini. Nije baš neko iznenađenje  da sam veliki ljubitelj grafita i ulične umjetnosti te vrste, pogotovo kada se uzdigne na razinu prave umjetnosti. Stoga se trudim s vama podijeliti uličnu umjetnost kada na na nju naiđem. Dok sam studirala, čak sam napisala jedan seminarski o grafitima u Splitu.  Urbani život također ima svojih  nadahnuća.

  14. "Mostarske kiše", prva asocijacija.

    Želim ti da cele godine budeš tako nasmejana, nije važno zašto, jer kad je čovek nasmejan znači da je srećan, a to nam je najneophodnije u životu.
    Želim ti srećne praznike i da uživaš ne samo u njima, nego u svakom narednom danu.

  17. Dearest Ivana,
    while I look at your photos, I think of the film "Singin 'in the Rain" with in which Gene Kelly. Although you don't sing or dance on the photos, you smile like a happy dancer! Your outfit is excellent - very chic - and the street art in some of the photos is a really very attractive background. This form of graffiti I also like, unfortunately there is so much inartistic mess on so many walls in Vienna ...
    Lots of hugs and Happy 2016,
    Traude

  36. Nas je zatrpao snijeg na najjače tako da i sama nemam pojma kako i kada ću izviriti van a kamoli se slikati... šteta što kao ti nemam neke stare fotke već samo jedan ootd u najavi. Volim tu tvoju ležernost u kombiniranju sportskih i elegantnih komada. Čizmice su mi preslatke i tako super idu na cijelu ovu priču! Još jednom, od srca puno sreće i primarno zdravlja u novoj 2016.

  37. Ta sreća bez ikakvog razloga (ili možda baš zbog svega) je jedan od najlepših osećaja, a iz tvog osmeha se primećuje sva ta radost :) Ovo mi je jedan od tvojih najdražih postova jer je sve nekako savršeno uklopljeno. I ja volim tu vrstu umetnosti i možda baš zbog nje gradski život ima svoje čari. Stvarno su prava remek dela. Kombinacija je čista 10-ka! Obožavam duge suknje i haljine sa dubokim šlicem, baš taj šlic daje neku posebnu čar toj ušuškanoj kombinaciji. Pohvale i za fotografa! Slike su sjajno ispale. Shvataš već koliko mi se sve sviđa :)

  50. Loving all the happy smiles, Ivana! You look stunning as always, and that street art is incredible. :) Street art seems to be quite a big thing here in the UK (especially with Banksy, who actually comes from the same city I live in), I always admire it, art is a beautiful way of expressing yourself! x

  51. Personally I really like graffiti/street art too, because I also find them as art (but let's be honest: not all of them). I see that you spent great day in Mostar on that day, it was raining, but you was still so positive and you posed like real model :) Have a great evening, Ivana :)

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE EASTER CELEBRATION

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I'll talk about how to have more sustainable Easter week celebration. I'll share some of my tips as well as my 'green' Easter day traditions. Before I get into sharing those tips, let me just say that traditional Easter customs are more likely to be environmentally conscious. So, tradition is a great way to look for inspiration. Ask your elders, relatives and friends about their Easter traditions, they can give you useful tips, advice and inspiration. Naturally, internet is also a great resource for environmentally friendly Easter. There are a lot of creative people out there that are constantly coming up with sustainable decor and recipes, so why not tap into that? Feel free to share your Easter traditions as well. A great thing about collecting green tips is that most of them can be applied to any festivity!
My Easter day 'green' ideas include: using natural egg dyes, using recycled Easter decor, not being wasteful with fo…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.


 Spending Easter in Mostar is something I would defin…

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…
