Valentine's day outfit / Odjevna kombinacija za Valentinovo

This is what I wore for Valentine's Day. It was a suprisingly warm day. Windy, but not cold at all.  I didn't even need a jacket or a coat. Originally, we had planned a getaway, but in the morning a friend called my husband, asking him to help him with finding a wedding saloon for his son's wedding.  Getaway cancelled. 

Ovo sam nosila za Valentinovo. Bilo je iznenađujuće toplo. Vjetrovito, ali nimalo hladno. Nije mi bila potrebna ni jakna ni kaput. Zapravo smo planirali negdje otići, ali ujutro je prijatelj zvao moga muža da mu pomogne pronaći salu za sinovo vjenčanje. Planovi otkazani. 






I was hoping for a relaxing day, but we ended up with just a few hours for ourselves. I'm not complaining, at least we got to spend some time together and some people don't even managed to do that. Instead of going somewhere, we just hanged out in town and took these photographs. How was your Valentine's day?

Nadala sam se provesti opuštajući dan, a na kraju je to bilo tek par sati, ali ne žalim se jer neki ljudi ne uspiju ni to.  Umjesto izleta, motali smo se po gradu, a tu su i ove fotografije uslikane.  Kakvo je vama bilo Valentinovo?

This dress seemed like a good choice and pairing it with a black blazer was a no brainer. I decided to ignore the pain and wear boots with heels. My foot won't get any better, so no point in avoiding heels altogether. I'm going to be in pain one way or another, so why not at least try wearing something that I like? I really miss wearing these caramel boots. They are one of my favourites. They seem to go well with just about anything. Last Winter I wore them quite often, as you can see herehere and here.

Ova se haljina činila kao dobar izbor, a i crni sako je nekako klasika. Odlučila sam ignorirati bol i nositi čizme s visokom petom. Noga mi neće biti ništa bolje, pa nema smisla izbjegavati posve pete. Boljeti će me ionako i ovako, pa zašto barem ne pokušati nositi nešto što volim? Baš mi je nedostajalo nošenje ovih čizama boje karamela, jedne su mi od najdražih. Prošle godine sam ih često nosila, kao što možete vidjeti ovdje,   ovdje ovdje.















When I was a little girl, I loved playing with this oversize lace scarf. Even when I was an adolescent I still thought it was pretty cool. It would hang on the wall in my room and my parrots used to climb on it. Good times. Interesting how now that I'm a grown woman, I see it as something I can actually wear,  not something to play with.  

Kada sam bila djevojčica, voljela sam se igrati s ovim velikim šalom. Čak i kada sam bila adolescent, još uvijek mi se sviđao. Visio bi na zidu u mojoj sobi i moje papige bi se penjale po njemu. Dobra vremena. Zanimljivo kako sada, kada sam odrasla vidim kako bi ga mogla nositi, a ne samo nešto s čime bi se mogla igrati i nekako se čini da postoji način za nositi sve. 




There seems to be a way to style everything. I sometimes miss those days when I didn't know all the things I know today. Sometimes the more we know, the more restricted our behaviour becomes. Does that happen because we start to believe we know everything? How dangerous it is to believe we know it all. It is the most fatal belief that exist. Every situation requires us to make new decisions. Children know this by instict, but adults ...and we ask ourself where did the magic of unknown disappear? In fact it is always there, we only need to open our eyes. We must not forget the importance of play. 


Nekada bi nedostaju oni dani kada nisam znala sve što danas znam. Nekad što više znamo, više nam je ponašanje ograničeno.  Je  li to stoga što mislimo da znamo sve? Kako je opasno vjerovati da znamo sve. To  je najgore vjerovanje koje postoji. Svaka situacija zahtjeva od nas donošenje novih odluka. Djeca to znaju instinktivno, ali odrasli zaboravljaju...i onda se pitamo kamo je nestala čarolija nepoznatoga? Zapravo je ona uvijek tu, samo moramo otvoriti oči.  Ne smijemo zaboraviti važnost igre.

  7. baš lijep šal. podsjeća me na stare kaubojske filmove u kojima su žene nosile nešto slično u svojim kućama:) ili, nama bliža verzija, likovi iz Zagorkinih ilih Šenoinih romana..
    čizme mi se jako sviđaju, imam nešto slično. žao mi je za nogu.

    što se tiče nepoznanica, mislim da ljudi s vremenom sve manje daju priliku životu da ih iznenadi, često ni ne pokušavaju probati nešto novo, ili na novi način...

    1. hvala, da znam na što misliš...i ja se odmah sjetim španjolskih ljepotica i kaubojskih filmova:)

      To si jako lijepo rekla, često ljudi i ne žele probati nešto novo.

  16. Haljinica je ko stvorena za Valentinovo i sjajno ti stoji! :) Mi smo bili doma jer je vani bila nenormalna kiša čitav dan (kad će više prestati?) pa smo tek popodne (kad se kiša na kratko smirila) pred sam zalazak istrčali na plažu jer je puhalo orkansko jugo i valovi su bili divni pa sam htjela koju sliku fotkati.

  22. Yes the importance of play and fantasy too. Adults do think we know everything and, what's worse, very few of us ever stop and think about those things we are so sure about. Glad you had a nice window of time on Vday, you look so lovely. And the bird scarf is such a cute story.

  40. I'm sorry your Valentines day wasn't as planned but glad you had some time together. I confess that my Valentines was probably the worst ever. We spent the entire day packing and moving things. It was awful, relentless and I felt like we really hated each other all day because of the misery of packing up all my belongings. We ate pizza from the pizza takeaway v late at night.x

  45. Fantastična!!! <3 Ne znam šta ste imali u planu ali meni ovo deluje kao savršen dan (makar slike to govore). Lepo je videti tu haljinicu i ovom izdanju i neočekivanom spoju sa braon bojom. Nadam se da nije ništa ozbiljno sa nogom. Mene je baš pred put za Veneciju bolela peta toliko da sam jedva gazila tog dana. Slažem se sa tobom, to dečje oduševljenje i radoznalost treba da sačuvamo kao i odrasli jer to što smo odrasli ne znači i da sve znamo ili da je čarolija nestala. Kao što smo rekle više puta, zaista jeste sve u našim glavama...

    As you know, I’m a fan of red and a fan of black, and sometimes I like white, too – and I like rose-patterns. So you can see: I fell in love with your pretty dress and your wonderful lace scarf! It was perfect for Valentine’s day!!!

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ BY L.FRANK BAUM (BOOK REVIEW)

Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.
